NCAA: Perpetual deals LPU its first elims defeat in two years

There will be no sweep in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, but there very well is a determined and dangerous University of Perpetual Help. Prince Eze got the game-winner, but it wouldn’t have been possible if not for the Altas’ stifling defense as they stunned Lyceum of the Philippines University, 83-81, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. This is the Pirates’ first loss in the elimination round since September 23, 2016. Since then, they won 30 elims games in a row. That streak looked like it would be continuing in this one as they had a nine-point lead, 78-69, inside the last four minutes. It was at that point, however, that Perps turned it up on defense  At the other end, Edgar Charcos willed them back in the game with clutch baskets, the last of which tied the tally at 81-all with 67 ticks to go on the clock. From there, the two teams traded a couple of defensive stops and the game looked like it was going into overtime as Tonton Peralta’s triple clanged off the side of the ring. Eze was at the right place at the right time, though, and hauled in the offensive rebound then and wasted no time putting up a shot. Not long after, the ball fell through the net and Perpetual was celebrating its biggest win in two years. Eze ended upwith a monster double-double of 25 points and 23 rebounds while Charcos finished with 20 markers, six boards, three assists, and two steals. Wings AJ Coronel and Kim Aurin combined for 21 points, seven assists, and six rebounds to help the Altas improve to 7-5 – just right behind 8-4 Colegio de San Juan de Letran and 8-5 College of St. Benilde. For LPU, Jaycee Marcelino topped the scoring column with 16 points while CJ Perez just missed out on a triple-double with 11 markers, 12 rebounds, nine assists, and five steals. Even with the stunning loss, they are still at the top spot at 12-1. BOX SCORES PERPETUAL 83 - Eze 25, Charcos 20, Coronel 11, Aurin 10, Jimenez 8, Peralta 7, Magalino 2, Cuevas 0, Pasia 0.

PBA: San Miguel pours it in third period to halt Columbian

The San Miguel Beermen showed off their shooting prowess as they drilled 23 three-pointers to down the Columbian Dyip, 143-119, in the continuation of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum Friday evening. They tie a PBA record for most three-pointers made in a game, achieved twice by the TNT KaTropa franchise, which they last did on Jan. 14, 2009, coincidentally against the Beermen, per PBA chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III.  Down by two in a back-and-forth first half, 64-66, San Miguel exploded in the third quarter, finishing the period on a very high note, as they closed the final 7:28 with a 34-11 blitz and never looked back to improve to a 2-1 record. Columbian meanwhile drops to 0-6. Arwind Santos started off the gates very quickly, scoring 19 points in the opening period on 7/11 shooting, including a scorching 5/8 clip from downtown. The former league MVP finished this outing with 29 markers, and seven threes, coupled with five rebounds and four blocks.  San Miguel's Gilas Pilipinas trio of Marcio Lassiter, Christian Standhardinger, and Alex Cabagnot meanwhile combined for a 61-point effort, including six three-pointers from Marcio and three from Alex.  "That's one thing na sinasabi ko sa kanila. We stressed yung offense. the problem is our defense. In the first half we gave up 64 points and that's not a sign of good D. Fortunately our offense is superb. Happy because we won the game but sad we're not playing good defense," San Miguel coach Leo Austria said after the game.  Jackson Corpuz meanwhile paced Columbian's offense with 28 points, and was followed by import Akeem Wright's 22. Jerramy King and Rashawn McCarthy added 22 points and 18, respectively. AZ Reid meanwhile flirted with a quadruple-double, posting 16 points, 17 rebounds, 11 assists, and six steals.  THE SCORES: SMB (143) -- Santos 29, Lassiter 28, Standhardinger 21, Reid 16, Nabong 14, Cabagnot 12, Pessumal 11, Ross 7, Heruela 5. Mamaril 0, Vigil 0, Ganuelas-Rosser 0, Agovida 0, de Ocampo 0. Columbian (119) -- Corpuz 28, Wright 22, King 22, McCarthy 18, Khobuntin 7, Escoto 6, Cabrera 5, Celda 2, Reyes 2, Gabriel 2, Cahilig 2, Sara 2, Tubid 1, Ababou 0.  Quarter scores: 34-26, 64-66, 107-84, 143-119.  __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

NCAA: Red Cubs, Staglets boost bids for Final Four

STANDINGS LSGH 10-2 MAPUA 9-3 SAN BEDA 9-4 JRU 7-6 PERPETUAL 5-6 ARELLANO 5-6 LPU 5-7 SAN SEBASTIAN 5-8 LETRAN 3-8 EAC 2-10 San Beda High School stayed within striking distance of the top two and San Sebastian College-Recoletos stayed alive and kicking in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament. The two teams made sure the Final Four remained a nine-team race following separate well-earned wins on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The Red Cubs stood strong in the middle periods to take care of business against Emilio Aguinaldo College, 80-71. Winderlich Coyoca built on his breakout game the last time around with 18 points, four steals, two rebounds, and two assists in this one while Winston Ynot and Kent Pelipel chipped in 13 and 11 markers, respectively. Trailing by one after the opening salvo, San Beda turned it on and dominate their opponents by a score of 46-32 in the second and third quarters. That double-digit lead would be more than enough for their ninth win in the last 11 games following a 0-2 start to the season. At 9-4, the Red Cubs are breathing down the necks of top two teams 10-2 College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills and 9-3 Mapua High School. Third-running San Beda also gained separation from fourth-running Jose Rizal High School after it fell to the Staglets, 51-56. Milo Janao did the heavy lifting as always with 19 points and seven rebounds while JP Timbancaya contributed 10 markers and six boards of his own. Behind those two, the Staglets took the fight out of their opponents and charged to 5-8 – still well in contention in the tournament. John Amores paced the Light Bombers with 16 points on top of seven rebounds and three assists. He was the lone scorer in double-digits, however, and as such, saw his squad fail to build on its big-time upset of the Red Robins a week ago. Still, with a 7-6 record, JRU stayed at solo fourth all of University of Perpetual Help (5-6), Arellano High School (5-6), Lycuem of the Philippines University (5-7), Baste (3-8), and even Colegio de San Juan de Letran (3-8) right behind. Meanwhile, the loss pushed the Brigadiers to the brink now at 2-10.
