MVP a pleasant surprise, but Isaac Go s eyes still on the championship prize

Isaac Go has been recognized as the MVP of the 2019 PBA D-League. The Ateneo de Manila University stalwart was adjudged the tournament's top individual player among a fine field that also included teammate Thirdy Ravena as well as the Valencia-San Sebastian awesome twosome of Allyn Bulanadi and RK Ilagan. Go's averages weren't eye-popping by themselves, but his presence was, without a doubt, key to the Cignal-Ateneo's flight to the Finals where they now stand one win away from the championship. Still, the 22-year-old was the first to acknowledge that, with his per game counts of 9.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists, he did not expect the MVP at all. "When they were announcing the nominees (for MVP), I didn’t really expect to be called. Then I got called and I was like, okay," he shared. He then continued, "And then, boom! I was even more surprised they called me again as the winner." Make no mistake about it, though, Go is nothing but thankful. "I think it's nice to have and it was a nice surprise to have this. As you saw, I was shocked that I got it," he said. At the same time, however, the 6-foot-8 big man made it clear that being the top individual player never mattered for him - or for all the Blue Eagles, for that matter. As he put it, "I feel blessed, but this is just one step towards the goal. It was never my goal to win this." He then continued, "My goal was always to win the championship, improve as a player, and always put my best foot forward. This is just a bonus." That is exactly why Go reminded everybody that he and his teammates still have their sights set on wrapping up the championship in Game 4 of the best-of-five series on Tuesday. "I will enjoy this, but then again, we have another game. We will still be focused for that," he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

7-man CEU takes down Cignal-Ateneo to tie PBA D-League Finals

Centro Escolar University stunned Cignal-Ateneo, 77-74, to level the 2019 PBA D-League Finals at one game apiece on Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. Jerome Santos uncorked 28 points, 10 rebounds, and three assists to be the difference-maker for the seven-man Scorpions. Senegalese big man Maodo Malick Diouf remained solid upfront with 23 points, 16 boards, four steals, two dimes, and two blocks, as Rich Guinitaran chipped in 13 points, two assists, and two blocks. "I think we're able to redeem ourselves today. We're able to show up in the championship game," said coach Derrick Pumaren. "What I told my players is more on motivation. I told them to believe in themselves, that we can be in the same league in Ateneo. I'm just happy to see the fight and us competing in this game." It was a different CEU team from that of Game 1, grabbing a 65-55 lead midway through the fourth. Cignal-Ateneo, though, would stage a 14-4 response to knot the score at 69 with exactly two minutes remaining. The game was then ultimately decided on the charity stripe as the Scorpions converted six of their eight freebies in the endgame, with Franz Diaz burying the crucial shots in the last 10.1 ticks as it held a 77-74 lead. Guinitaran almost squandered the game with a turnover on his inbounds play, but Adrian Wong was whistled for a travelling violation that gave CEU the ball back. Wong and SJ Belangel still had their shots to force overtime, but their triples rattled out of the basket as the buzzer horned. Wong carried the Blue Eagles with 17 points on a 4-of-7 clip from beyond the arc. Ivorian slotman Ange Kouame nabbed a double-double with 14 points, 10 rebounds, and three blocks, as Belangel got 13 off the bench in the loss. Cignal-Ateneo played without senior forward Isaac Go who was under the weather. The crucial Game 3 is on Thursday, still at Ynares Sports Arena. BOX SCORES CEU 77 -- Santos 28, Diouf 23, Guinitaran 13, Diaz 8, Bernabe 2, Abastillas 2, Sunga 1. CIGNAL-ATENEO 74 -- Wong 17, Kouame 14, Belangel 13, Ravena 10, Andrade 6, Daves 4, Mi.

Cignal-Ateneo overwhelms 8-man CEU in Game 1 of PBA D-League Finals

Cignal-Ateneo lived up to the hype and clobbered Centro Escolar University, 101-66, Thursday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan to take Game 1 of the 2019 PBA D-League Finals. The heavily favored Blue Eagles jumped on the hapless Scorpions in the second quarter, staging a 29-15 assault that made it a 54-31 lead at the half. The lead grew to as much as 39, 78-39, in the third frame. Isaac Go shot 4-of-6 from downtown to carry Cignal-Ateneo with 17 points, four rebounds, and two assists, while Thirdy Ravena added 15 points, seven rebounds, and three assists in the trouncing. SJ Belangel also made the most of his opportunities, firing nine of his 12 points in the first half as the Blue Eagles recorded the most lopsided PBA D-League Finals game in history with the 35-point rout. "We knew coming into the game that they went through a very tough best-of-three against St. Clare and we had more rest. We just wanted to make sure that we use our bench and I think that's what happened," said assistant coach Sandy Arespacochaga. Game 2 is scheduled on Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. Senegalese center Maodo Malick Diouf anchored the Scorpions in the losing effort with 21 points, 11 rebounds, four steals, and three assists. BOX SCORES CIGNAL-ATENEO 101 -- Go 17, Ravena 15, Belangel 12, Kouame 9, Ma. Nieto 9, Tio 8, Wong 8, Daves 7, Andrade 5, Mi. Nieto 3, Mamuyac 3, Mendoza 3, Berjay 2, Navarro 0, Credo 0.
