UST trots out Mark Nonoy as first-ever HS baller in PBA D-League

University of Sto. Tomas just fell short of the Final Four in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. And so, one-and-done sensation Mark Nonoy has played his last game as a Tiger Cub. He finishes his first and only season in the Juniors with per game counts of 21.8 points, 8.9 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 2.6 steals. For the recruit from La Carlota, Negros Occidental, however, this is far from the end as he will waste no time and move on up to the school’s Seniors squad. “Bukas, magte-training na ako sa Seniors. Walang pahi-pahinga,” he told reporters after their season-ending loss last Sunday. That means that last Monday, Nonoy was already getting at it with the likes of Growling Tiger veterans Marvin Lee and Renzo Subido and youngsters Sherwin Concepcion and Brent Paraiso. That transition, however fast it was, was a no-brainer for the UST coaching staff. “Number one, magfi-fit siya sa sistema at ngayon makaka-adjust na siya agad. Ngayong first years niya, gusto lang naming makitang nandun lang siya,” Bonnie Garcia, head coach for the Juniors and assistant coach for the Seniors said. He then continued, “Baka second, third year niya, it will be his time na talaga kasi Marvin Lee and Renzo Subido, graduate na.” Alongside getting to play with his future teammates in college, Nonoy is already preparing to wage war alongside the rest of the black and gold in the upcoming 2019 PBA D-League. Yes, the 18-year-old playmaker, UST’s point guard of the future, will be balling in the D-League. Once he enters the court there, he will become the first-ever high school student-athlete to have played in the eight-year-old league. For now, however, coach Bonnie said all UST wants Nonoy to do is to take in the next level of play. “Gusto naming maintindihan na niya yung higher level of basketball. Mag-oobserve siya dun para maintindihan niya,” he shared. He then continued, “Para pagdating na ng UAAP season, ready to play na talaga siya.” Whatever it is, Espana’s triple-double machine vows to be ready and raring to go at it with more experienced opponents. “Alam ko pong kaya ko naman doon. Sanay naman ako sa kalye na kung sino-sino ang kalaban,” he said through chuckles. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Magnolia muse Sharon Cuneta shrugs off online bashers

BOCAUE, BULACAN -- Megastar Sharon Cuneta just shrugged off online bashers critical of her selection as the Magnolia Hotshots muse in the opening of the 44th PBA season here. Cuneta, an endorser of the poultry products of the compan, represented the newly-crowned Governors' Cup champions as they were introduced one by one. When the announcement was made that she would be the muse last Tuesday, an online firestorm erupted, bashing Cuneta for primarily her age.

They don't mean anything to me. I'm the one that's here, and I was chosen by Magnolia. I didn't volunteer. I'm their major endorser, and I think that's understandable," the longtime Kapamilya said.

"Parang mama nila ako, kapatid – ate, tita, mama. Si Rafi hinahanap ko kasi halos he's my brother na. Si Ping, nandiyan na asawa ni Danica. Sayang wala si Captain Alvin kasi last time na I was a muse for Purefoods, it was the team ni Alvin," shared Cuneta. The 53-year old veteran actress and singer is no stranger to being the muse of the franchise, and accompanied Purefoods back in 1990 when Alvin Patrimonio and Jojo Lastimosa led the charge. It was a star-studded affair for all 12 squads, who brought lovely ladies to accompany them to the makeshift podium at the Philippine Arena floor.
