Adamson, FEU keep proving UAAP 81 Jrs. no two-team race

STANDINGS Ateneo 5-1 NU 5-1 Adamson 5-2 FEU-Diliman 5-2 DLSZ 3-4 UST 3-4 UE 1-6 UPIS 0-7 While everybody’s eyes have been focused on last year’s Finalists, Adamson High School and Far Eastern University-Diliman continue sending statements they are contenders as well in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Both the Baby Falcons and the Baby Tamaraws finish the first round of eliminations in joint second-place after coming out on top against separate foes on Saturday at the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City. In the first game, Adamson made quick work of De La Salle Zobel, 72-57. Workhorse wing Adrian Manlapaz kept opening eyes with a career-high 18 points while Didat Hanapi and Andrey Doria also added 12 and 11 markers, respectively. Top gun Joem Sabandal made his presence felt elsewhere with 11 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, and two steals as the Baby Falcons outscored their opponents 36-18 in the middle periods to come away with a convincing victory. Now at 5-2, they are assured of the league’s second-best record heading into the second round whatever happens in the clash between Ateneo de Manila High School and Nazareth School of National University, both 5-1, later in the day. Also standing on level ground with them is FEU-Diliman which tamed University of Sto. Tomas, 63-37. The Baby Tamaraws charged to a 14-2 start in the first eight minutes and never looked back en route to what was likewise their fifth win in seven games. The Tiger Cubs could only come as close as 11 points in the third quarter only to see RJ Abarrientos take charge and take back control for the green and gold. In the end, Abarrientos did it all once more with 11 points, six rebounds, three assists, and three blocks while Bryan Sajonia chipped in 12 markers. Along with forging a three-way tie for the second spot, both Adamson and FEU-Diliman could boast of big-time wins over last year’s Finalists – the former having downed runner-up NU and the latter having defeated champion Ateneo. Meanwhile, University of the East got its first taste of victory at the expense of the University of the Philippines Integrated School, 74-72. Little-known Leo Almacen dropped a career-high 29 points off the bench while Sean Manaug posted a 20 marker-, 15-rebound double-double in the Junior Warriors’ long-awaited, much-wanted breakthrough win after seven games. For the Junior Maroons, Jordi Gomez de Liano, younger brother of Fighting Maroons Javi and Juan, also scored a career-best 27 points built on seven triples. That was far from enough, however, as they remain winless in the season.

Kobe Paras: It ll be fun to face Ateneo in the Finals

Incoming Fighting Maroon Kobe Paras said that it would be fun to see the University of the Philippines and Ateneo de Manila University clash once again in the championship series of the UAAP. However, Paras then added that the Blue Eagles should open their doors, close the main thoroughfare and declare the bonfire on Saturday as a bond between the adjacent higher institutions of learning.  "Ateneo, sama mo naman kaming mga Iskolar ng Bayan. Because basketball brings us together. So why don't just have a bonfire of UP and Ateneo together? Sa lahat ng Fathers ng Ateneo, mahal ko kayo. #OneBigFight #UPFight. Sarado natin yung buong Katipunan. Throw a big party," the 21-year old said in an interview with Mico Halili on 'The Score'. Kidding aside, Paras admitted that it 'pissed him off' that he was not able to play for the Maroons this year, who made a surprise run to the UAAP Season 81 Finals. However, he says he looks forward to playing with UAAP Season 80 Mythical Five member Ricci Rivero in leading the squad perhaps back to the Finals once again, and make sure to make the Iskolar ng Bayan proud of their exploits. "I didn't really have to be a part of [the magical season]. But something inside me that people were talking about is why UP was going to the Final Four is because of me and Ricci," he shared. "Everytime people say that to me, I tell them, don't focus on me, focus on the present. Focus on Season 81. My guys really did some big things and I'm proud of them. Not have one, but Ateneo deserved the championship this year." Paras also talked about his haters and how he deals with them everyday. "You just got to live your life. Whatever you do, people are going to respond in a negative or positive way. Do something that makes you happy." See the rest of the interview below:.....»»

The day’s other game at 11:00 AM will then feature two upstart teams in De La Salle Zobel (3-2) and University of Sto. Tomas (2-3). --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA warns coaches

Beaten black-and-blue Sunday night, Magnolia coach Chito Victolero praised the enemy for a job well done before launching his attack on officiating and asking for fairness for the rest of the PBA Governors' Cup best-of-seven title series. "Coach Alex (Compton of Alaska) did a good job (in making the adjustments)," Victolero told reporters, shortly after a 100-71 loss. "Coach Alex (also) did a good job calling the attention of the referees (after Game 2) about (how) my guards (are) playing defense."

CJ Perez, Bolick lead 48 hopefuls to 2018 PBA Rookie Draft

THE cast has been set as a total of 48 hopefuls made themselves available for the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft. The University of the Philippines’ Paul Desiderio and Diego Dario were the last ones to submit their names over the weekend as this year’s applicants surpassed last season’s list of 44. The league’s decision to extend the deadline for local players to submit their applications from December 3 to 10 allowed both Desiderio and Dario to make the list at the last minute after playing for the Fighting Maroons in the UAAP Season 81 men’s basketball finals against eventual champion Ateneo Blue Eagles. Official list of applicants however, won’t be released by the league until Dec. 14 or two days before the draft proceedings to be held at the Robinson’s Place Manila, which formally sets in motion the PBA’s 44th season. All rookie hopefuls will also undergo the traditional Draft Combine scheduled Dec. 12 to 13 at the Hoops Center in Mandaluyong.

UAAP: Unbeaten Bullpups bury Jr. Warriors in 72-point hole

STANDINGS NU 5-0 Ateneo 4-1 Adamson 3-2 DLSZ 3-2 FEU-Diliman 3-2 UST 2-3 UE 0-5 UPIS 0-5 Nazareth School of National University is far from full strength and yet, it remains the standard of the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Gerry Abadiano and Terrence Fortea showed the way, but all of the Bullpups played their parts to perfection as they ran hapless University of the East out of the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City to the tune of a 72-point obliteration, 115-43, on Saturday. Abadiano and Fortea scored 17 and 16 points, respectively, to lead four other teammates in double-digits as they stayed spotless after five games. “Mas maganda yung movement ng bola namin kanina compared sa ibang games tapos yung defense naman, maganda rin from start to finish,” head coach Goldwin Monteverde said post-game. It was those two who got going right from tip-off and, alongside Reyland Torres and Kevin Quiambao, combined for 28 points in the first half. With just the four of them, NU already outscored all of the Junior Warriors at that point, 28-18. The Bullpups would not take their foot off the pedal the rest of the way even as Abadiano and Fortea rested on the bench for much of the second half. In the end, Torres had 13 points, six rebounds, three assists, and two steals while Quiambao had 10 markers, five boards, and two dimes. Little-known Menard Songcuya and Renzo Abiera also contributed 10 points apiece to help make up for the absence of Batang Gilas big man Carl Tamayo. “Yung process of becoming a team, yung biggest challenge pa rin namin is how to play together,” coach Goldwin said. Shane Dichoso paced still winless UE with nine points. In the day’s other game, Adamson High School topped University of Sto. Tomas in overtime, 77-74. Andrey Doria dropped half of his 14 points in the extra period to go along with a total of seven rebounds while brother Adam also added 18 markers, five boards, and three steals as the Baby Falcons forged a three-way tie for third-place at 3-2. Big man Lorenz Capulong also came up big with a 17-point, 14-rebound to make sure they overcame an off-game by main man Joem Sabandal who only had eight points before leaving the game due to an apparent left leg injury. For the Tiger Cubs, Mark Nonoy stuffed the stat sheet anew with 20 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists. He also had 10 turnovers, however, and as a team, they saw their 34 turnovers get converted into 21 points to fall to 2-3 in the standings.
