Senators doubt okay of P3.7-T budget by Dec. 12

There may not be enough time for the Senate to approve the proposed P3.757-trillion national budget for next year if the House of Representatives would pass the budget bill by November 28. "That is too late," Senate President Vicente "Tito" Sotto IIII said in a text message when sought for comment on Monday. "I'm afraid we might not be able to finish on time. They have to do better than that and submit earlier," Sotto added. The House leadership has set Nov. 28 as its target to approve the bill and pass it onto the Senate.

UAAP: UP has its first MVP in 32 years in Bright Akhuetie

The UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament continues to be a historic one for the University of the Philippines. Not even a week after ending its 21-year playoff drought, Bright Akhuetie has been hailed as the Season MVP – the first time since 1986 that a Fighting Maroon has done so. Akhuetie follows in the footsteps of Eric Altamirano who last took home the award to State U. The Nigerian powerhouse has been the MVP leader all throughout the tournament and ends the elimination round with per game counts of 18.9 points, 14.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.1 steals in just his first season. That was more than enough for him to accumulate 82.50 Statistical Points (SPs) and more than enough to for him to have a six-point edge over his closest competitor. That turned out to be another first-year big man in Ateneo de Manila University’s Angelo Kouame who had 76.21 SPs built on averages of 14.4 points, 13.6 rebounds, and 3.2 blocks. Due to a league rule that states that only one foreign student-athlete can be included, Kouame will also not be making the Mythical Team. Instead, the Mythical selections are Akhuetie, UP teammate Juan Gomez de Liano, University of the East’s Alvin Pasaol, De La Salle University’s Justine Baltazar, and Adamson University’s Jerrick Ahanmisi. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Angels complete semis cast

PetroGazz barely broke a sweat in sweeping hapless Adamson-Akari, 25-21, 25-9, 25-15, Sunday to complete the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference semifinals cast at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Angels started out flat but was quick to recover to claim their third straight win for an 8-5 win-loss record while adding more woes to the winless Lady Falcons. PetroGazz joined BanKo (10-3), Ateneo-Motolite (10-4) and Creamline (9-3) in the best-of-three Final Four after completing a back-to-back weekend schedule sweep. The Jerry Yee-mentored squad defeated Ateneo-Motolite in four sets last Saturday.  The Angels’ victory booted out Pocari Sweat-Air Force, which missed the semis for the first time in franchise history, and Tacloban, which are tied at 6-7 slates. Jessey de Leon poured 13 of her 14 points on attacks to highlight the Angels' 46-kill performance. Cherry Nunag and Alyssa Layug added 13 and 11 markers, respectively, for PetroGazz.   The Lady Falcons, who fielded Eli Soyud for the first time after recovering from a knee injury but still played without Bernadette Flora (back spasm) and Lea Anne Perez (ankle sprain), absorbed its 12th straight loss in as many games. No Adamson-Akari player scored in double figures with rookie Trisha Genesis posting six points while Soyud, who only played in the third set, and Chrislyn Uy added five markers each.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Fighting Warays try to stay alive in semis hunt

Tacloban’s semifinals bid now depends on fate. Though needing to pray hard for other teams still in the hunt for the last Final Four spot to drop their remaining assignments, the Fighting Warays, for now, must take care of the things they have control over. Tacloban is in a must-win situation when it clashes with upset-conscious Adamson-Akari Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.   Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.  The Fighting Warays are in a two-way tie at fifth to sixth spots with idle Pocari Sweat-Air Force, sporting 5-7 win-loss records. PetroGazz, which will face Ateneo-Motolite at 6:00 p.m., currently occupies the fourth spot behind the semis-bound Lady Eagles, Creamline and BanKo. Tacloban needs to sweep its remaining games and hope that Pocari Sweat and PetroGazz drop all of their next assignments to advance to the semis. The Fighting Warays are coming off a week-long  rest after outlasting PetroGazz in five sets. But pressure will be on Tacloban’s side against a team with nothing to lose. The Lady Falcons have yet to capture the elusive victory after bowing down on their last 10 outings.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles     .....»»

PVL: Angels seek to boost semis bid vs. Lady Eagles

PetroGazz tries to add more separation from its pursuers for the last Final Four spot when the Angels meet an Ateneo-Motolite side looking to finish the elims strong Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 6:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream.  The Angels are at solo no. 4 spot, holding a 6-5 win-loss record, but are still in a precarious position in the race for the last semis seat with Tacloban (5-7) and Pocari Sweat-Air Force (5-7) breathing down their necks. PetroGazz hopes to draw inspiration from its straight sets shocker over BanKo last week to subdue the Lady Eagles, who handed the Angels a painful five-set setback in their first meeting. A win will give PetroGazz at least a playoff for the last semis spot. But it will be a tough task for the Angels to accomplish especially with Ateneo-Motolite bent on claiming the top seed in the best-of-three semis. The Lady Eagles carry a 10-3 slate and were the first to advance in the Final Four followed by Creamline (9-2) and BanKo (9-3). Ateneo-Motolite beat Adamson-Akari last week.     ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Juan GDL guaranteed all of this even before UAAP 81

Safe to say, along with ice, Juan Gomez de Liano has confidence running through his veins. That is exactly why the University of the Philippines’ second-year stud had a promise to his fans even before the beginning of UAAP Season 81. “I could say the Final Four is a sure spot for us,” he said then. After a 3-5 record in the first eight games, that looked like a farfetched idea for the Fighting Maroons. But then, something just clicked and they wound up their campaign by winning five of the last six games. For Juan GDL, neither he nor his teammates ever stopped believing. “I knew it was coming. I actually thought na last year pa nga dapat sana, but we fell short,” he said. He then continued, “I promised ever since offseason na we’re gonna make the Final Four. Here we are.” Indeed, with a convincing victory versus De La Salle University, State U booked a ticket into the Final Four for the first time since 1997. And they got it just the way team captain Paul Desiderio wanted them to – “16 Strong.” In the end, Juan GDL had 27 points, four assists, and three rebounds while kuya Javi had his own 19 markers built on five triples. MVP frontrunner Bright Akhuetie posted another double-double of 16 points and 20 rebounds while Desiderio chipped in 10 markers, four rebounds, four assists, and two steals. “We just stayed together as one unit. We never gave up even though there were a lot of struggles and ups and downs,” Juan GDL said. “We just stayed together and that was the most important thing.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Young Pinoy booters cherish FC Barcelona experience

Ten lucky kid footballers took part in a once-in-a-lifetime experience of training in Barcelona, Spain under the tutelage of esteemed FC Barcelona Youth Academy coaches. The kids returned to Manila recently after their global training camp that ran from November 4 to 12 and happily shared their memorable experiences, meeting other young athletes from around the world and ultimately watching their football heroes play live. “We’ve made a lot of friends there and learned a lot of things from our coaches. It was a memorable experience for us,” said Jelena Loren Soon of Singapore School Cebu and a member of the USPC Panthers and Cebu Elite Girls Team, who was the only girl in the batch that flew to Spain through the joint initiative of FC Barcelona and Milo. Soon was joined by Lien Dale Manuel, Alexander David Villarosa, Breindel Medina, Heaven Andrei Teodosio, Tristan Ybanez, Juan Pablo Unlay, Dylan Wong, Carlo Bongocan and Daniel Cagaanan  in the press conference held for the kids on Wednesday.   The Pinoy booters were carefully chosen by an expert panel from Milo, Cebu Football Association and FCB Academy in Cebu from almost 240 participants in Cebu last September.   The junior booters were immersed in a series of training sessions both on the pitch of Ciutat Esportivo, the home of La Maisa, FCB’s youth academy, and in the classroom at Camp Nou. The Filipinos joined other young delegates from Chile, Colombia, Jamaica, Malaysia, Maldives, South Africa, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela. There, coaches instilled to the young booters the Barca methodology of creative passing and attacking while underscoring the importance of positive values. The Filipinos also played a friendly match against young players of Fundacion Marcet Football Academy. The game was played in four quarters with the Pinoy representatives winning the final frame, 4-0.      But the ultimate experience for these young athletes was their exclusive training with former Brazil and Barca player and legend, Juliano Belleti, capped by watching Lionel Messi and Barca play live against Betis in their La Liga duel.       As an added treat, the kids were given a chance to visit the FC Barcelona locker room – a unique and unforgettable experience. “Milo hopes that these young delegates will continue to work hard and aspire to be the best version of themselves,” said Milo Philippines Consumer Marketing Manager. “We also hope that these kids can share their experience and learnings to help uplift Philippine football and build ambition for others to reach their dreams.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Perlas Spikers eye bounce back win, semis seat

After a shocking loss the last time out, BanKo marches back into action hoping to get back on the winning track and secure a spot in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference Final Four. The Perlas Spikers take on a desperate Pocari Sweat-Air Force side on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Opening serve is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. BanKo saw its three-game winning streak snapped by PetroGazz in a disappointing 11-25, 23-25, 18-25 defeat just a day after the Perlas Spikers scored a dominating sweep of semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite. BanKo holds an 8-3 win-loss record in third place behind the Lady Eagles (10-3) and Creamline (8-2) and are already secured of at least a playoff for a semis spot. But the Perlas Spikers remain wary of the dangerous Lady Warriors, who nipped them in five sets in their first meeting in Baliwag, Bulacan. Pocari Sweat is in desperate need of wins in their remaining three games to keep its semis hopes alive. The Lady Warriors are outside of the top four, holding a 5-6 mark, a game and a half away from fourth running PetroGazz. Pocari Sweat despite the gallant effort put up by Myla Pablo, Jeanette Panaga, Del Palomata and Iari Yongco fell short in their last outing at the hands of the Alyssa Valdez-led Cool Smashers, 25-23, 21-25, 20-25, 25-22, 9-15, in Legazpi City last Saturday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Sporting an 8-2 slate in second spot behind semis-bound Ateneo-Motolite, Creamline only needs to duplicate its first round drubbing of the Lady Oragons to secure a seat in the best-of-three Final Four. The star-studded Cool Smashers led by Alyssa Valdez, Jema Galanza and Michele Gumabao are the heavy favorites against struggling Iriga-Navy. The Lady Oragons, who are on a two-game slump, hold a 3-9 card.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
