SEA GAMES: Phisgoc, LVPI to sit down on hosting ASEAN Grand Prix leg

It’s like hitting two birds with one stone.   Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee chief operating officer Ramon ‘Tats’ Suzara will sit down with Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. to discuss the country’s possible hosting of the second leg of the planned inaugural ASEAN Grand Prix. Suzara, who is also the chairman of the powerful marketing and development committee of the Asian Volleyball Confederation, told ABS-CBN Sports that Phisgoc is planning to use the four-nation tournament hosting as one of the eight test events for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. The ASEAN Grand Prix is tentatively scheduled late next month or early October. “We will ask LVPI to use the ASEAN Grand Prix as test event for volleyball because it involves four countries,” said Suzara on Thursday. “This is also the request from the Asian Volleyball Confederation. We will call on LVPI to consider doing a test event.” The official added that it is a good opportunity to expose the national women's team against squads from Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia and at the same time serve as a dry run for the country’s hosting of the biennial meet in November.  Phisgoc, according to Suzara, will take care of the needed equipment and logistics of the Grand Prix leg as it will fall under the country’s SEA Games hosting test event. "I have to call [LVPI president] Mr. [Joey] Romasanta to consider the ASEAN Grand Prix second leg to be a test event for Phisgoc," Suzara said. Thailand will host the opening leg and Suzara wants to suggest LVPI to take care of the next stop of the home and away tournament.  “I asked AVC that we might be able to use one leg of the ASEAN Grand Prix because right now kasi ang magho-host pa lang Thailand,” he said. "They’re asking Philippines but hindi pa maka-commit ang LVPI because it needs funding.” “But now Phisgoc is giving the funding as the official test event so why not? It’s also good for the national team,” Suzara added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Jewelle Bermillo set to do double-duty to end PVL season

Rookie libero Jewelle Bermillo had quite the eventful first conference in the Premier Volleyball League.  In her maiden run with the BaliPure Purest Water Defenders in the 2019 PVL Reinforced Conference, Bermillo was on the receiving end of a hard-hitting facial courtesy of PetroGazz import Wilma Salas, and then made the news again after an incident with teammate and import Danijela Dzakovic.  As eventful as the Reinforced Conference was for Bermillo, it was largely a forgettable one as they finished last in the standings, failing to get a win in ten matches played.  It was indeed tough, but it was also a huge learning lesson for the 19-year old as she gears up for her second PVL conference.  "Yung experience ko, andami kong na-gain, naging mature ako last conference and madadala ko yun sa Open Conference," Bermillo told ABS-CBN Sports. "Sobrang nag-grow ako sa lahat ng nagyari last conference. Naging mas matured ako, naging mas matapang ako sa loob ng court ngayon." While being the youngest on the team, Bermillo is positioned as one of the Water Defenders' leaders and anchors, and the responsibility is something that she welcomes with open arms.  "Pag sinasabi ni Coach na ako yung mag-handle sa loob ng court kasi ako na yung libero, hindi ko nafi-feel na bata ako kasi may tiwala sila sa akin, na kaya ko i-handle sila sa loob ng court, lalo na sa floor defense. Hindi ko nafi-feel na bata ako sa loob ng court." An incoming sophomore for San Sebastian College-Recoletos in the NCAA, being able to compete in the PVL, alongside some of the best talents in the country is definitely a goldmine of experience for the young libero, and she is nothing short of eager to be able to bring that experience back to her collegiate team once the NCAA Women's Volleyball Tournament begins next year.  "Siguro sa akin, kay Coach Roger [Gorayeb], marami siyang ineexpect sa akin na itong experience ko dito sa BaliPure, na madadala ko sa kanila para maging leader din ako sa kanila sa team namin." Bermillo will get even more training in becoming a leader in the closing leg of the PVL season, as she shared that she will not be suiting up for the Lady Stags in the Collegiate Conference, but will instead serve as an assistant coach, alongside legendary San Sebastian mentor Roger Gorayeb.  The young libero could hardly keep her excitment as she spoke about the massive opportunity.  "Sobrang excited ko, sobrang unexpected, parang, yung dream ko agad na, eto, sa age kong ‘to na naging Assistant Coach na ako ni Coach Roger, si Coach Roger pa," Bermillo said, excitement.  Bermillo adds that rather than having her play in the Collegiate Conference as well, Gorayeb saw fit to let her focus on her experience with BaliPure as a way to grow and develop as a player.  "Sabi nga ni coach sa akin, hindi ko kailangan i-pressure ka na maglaro. Yang experience na natutunan mo sa BaliPure, ilalaan natin yan para sa NCAA." Bermillo sees the job offer, so to speak, as a sign of trust from Gorayeb's side, and it should prove to be an invaluable experience, especially for someone who still has years to go in the collegiate ranks.  "Ito, yung pagiging Assistant Coach ko sa kanila, sa mother team ko, ituturo ko lang sa kanila, iga-guide ko sila kung ano yung mga natutunan at na-experience ko last conference. Sobrang laking bagay, kasi para sa akin, malaki yung tiwala sa akin ni Coach Roger, kaya binigay niya yung ganung responsibility, parang sa kanya, alam niya na kaya ko na agad yung ganung responsibility, kaya sobrang thankful ako na nagkaroon siya ng tiwala na ibigay sa akin yung position na maging Assistant Coach itong collegiate conference." she added.  Bermillo admits that she did try to convince Coach Roger to let her suit up for San Sebastian as well, but with the Collegiate Conference and the Open Conference set to overlap, the schedule would be a problem and it would put too much on the young libero's shoulders.  "Sobrang pinilit ko talaga si Coach na mag-laro ako, pero sabi niya mahihirapan daw ako kasi nga sabay po yung games namin ng BaliPure tapos may sched pa po na parehas may game yung collegiate tapos kami, kaya naisipan na lang niya na gawin akong Assistant Coach para mapag-sabihan ko rin yung mga bata. May mga mas bata pa sa akin na maglalaro sa akin, mga first year, sabi niya ikaw na mag-guide sa kanila," she explained. .....»»

ABL official is new UAAP basketball commissioner

The UAAP has tapped the technical director of the ABL as commissioner for its basketball tournaments. Jensen Ilagan will now serve as the chief administrator for the basketball tournaments of the UAAP, with the Men's and Women's tourneys beginning on September 4. "I'm humbled to be the new UAAP commissioner. I will do my best to uphold the league's integrity through fair competition," said Ilagan. Though just 37 years young, Ilagan already has a wealth of experience under his belt. Besides being the technical director of the ABL for the last four years, the Asia Pacific College graduate is also a FIBA-certified table official. "His experience working in the ABL made us decide to tap him as our commissioner," said UAAP Season 82 president Emmanuel Fernandez. "His youth will bring more technological advancements to our league this season." "I commend the UAAP's choice, spearheaded by this season's host, as we continue to open our doors to candidates other than the traditional names in basketball," added UAAP executive director Atty. Rebo Saguisag. One of the innovations Ilagan plans to introduce for this season is the "Video Review Initiative." With this, every member of the officiating pool will be mandated to review the games that were played after every game day. "If it's a good game, it will be the standard. If it's a bad game, then it will serve as a lesson for the officials as well," shared the youthful commissioner. The league, though, has yet to finalize the pool of game officials for the season. Ilagan held a tryout last July 22 and 23 where 174 referees from 12 officiating groups attended. The pool was then trimmed down to 73 referees who will all undergo intensive training next week. "We have very high expectations and we will continue to watch him. I wish Mr. Ilagan luck in leading his office with pride and honor - his success is our success," expressed Saguisag. Assisting Ilagan as tournament director is a former Ateneo Blue Eagle and ex-Lyceum Jrs. head coach in LA Mumar......»»
