PBA: Arwind Santos, Vic Manuel just waiting for Gilas call

ANTIPOLO, RIZAL -- Have no fear, because Arwind and Vic are here? The two opponents may be at war now, but their hearts have agreed on one thing: suiting up for Gilas Pilipinas.  Commissioner Cup semis opponents Arwind Santos and Vic Manuel have put their names into the proverbial hat of possible Gilas replacements during the second window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifers as 10 different players have been suspended by the world's basketball governing body for a different number of games. The San Miguel forward, who had last represented the Philippines with Powerade Team Pilipinas back in 2009, is very open to the possbility of suiting up again for flag and country. He also relished at the possibility of playing with San Miguel teammates June Mar Fajardo, a current Gilas pool member, and Marcio Lassiter, a member of the first batch of Gilas players. "Okay lang naman ako. Wala namang problema. Lalo na't kasama ko sina Marcio, sina June Mar. Okay sa akin. At saka para sa ano natin. Mga nawala natin. Siyempre, sino pa maglalaro sa atin? Kung kailangan, sige. Nandoon lang naman ako," the 37-year old Santos said.  Meanwhile, for Vic Manuel, the conference's revelation, having 'Pilipinas' emblazoned across his jersey has always been a dream for him much like any basketball player, and with it, the probablity of making it has increased as Alaska head honcho Dickie Bachmann has provided his blessings for him to join the squad if called upon. "Kung mabibigyan ng chance, bakit hindi? Siyempre malaking bagay yon. Siyempre ako rin dream ko rin makapaglaro para sa bansa. Siyempre, ayun, gusto ko rin makatulong sa kanila."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

PBA: Lalaban tayo hanggang sa huli -- Aces coach Compton

ANTIPOLO -- Down 0-2 in a best-of-five semifinals series against the best and most star-studded team in the league, Alaska could’ve waived the white flag. But the Aces aren’t going down without a fight. Faced against overwhelming odds, Alaska stood its ground and made giant San Miguel Beer know that if it wants to advance into the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals the Beermen must go through them first. Even with their import Diamon Simpson playing hurt, the Aces blew out San Miguel, 125-104, to deny the Beermen a series sweep and live to fight another day Friday at the Ynares Sports Center here. “I thought everybody contributed at a time where, obviously, we’re still down, at a time we’re very down,” said Alaska coach Alex Compton, whose bench produced 71 points. “To tell you what guys, I love my guys. You heard me say it before I love my guys they don’t give up.” “We’re down 2-0 against the best team in the league, there’s every possibility to give up but they didn’t,” he added. The Aces dropped the series’ first two games including a painful Game 2 loss where Alaska squandered a 16-point lead. Ahead by nine points in at the half in Game 3, Alaska this time kept its hold of the lead and even extended it to 17 heading into the payoff period for a comfortable cushion. “Yun ang hiningi ko sa kanila, ‘lalaban tayo hanggang sa huli’. Lumaban sila,” said Compton. “You know we have to play great to beat San Miguel, I thought we played great tonight.” The mentor also praised his wards for stepping up as Simpson played with a sprained ankle he sustained in Game 2.     “I’m really proud of the guys when I had to sub him out when he looked like he was really hurt in the second quarter,” Compton said. “They were able to maintain and even at point extend our lead a little bit.” Vic Manuel delivered 24 points while Simpson still managed to score 21 markers and grab 13 boards. JV Casio also contributed with 15 markers while Simon Enciso flirted with a double-double with 10 points and eight assists in a time Alaska need all the help it could get. “It just feels like it was one of our days. Alam naman naming na doon sa kabila hindi biro ang bigat ng kalaban but we got one and we needed to get one,” said Compton. Now Alaska has a chance to get back in the series and take an equalizer on Sunday in Game 4.         ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

PBA: We can t get too excited -- Simpson on Aces win

Alaska finally woke up from a slump in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup best-of-five semifinals series Friday with a rout of defending champion San Miguel Beer. With their bench producing 71 points led by Vic Manuel and import Diamon Simpson providing his usual numbers despite playing with a sprained ankle, the Aces crushed the Beermen, 125-104, at the Ynares Sports Center here.     But there’s still much work to be done for Alaska to end a two-year tournament championship stint drought. The Aces still trail SMB, 1-2, in the series. “That was a good win but we can't get too excited,” said Simpson, who played through pain to register 21 points and 13 rebounds. Manuel led Alaska’s bench scoring with 24 points, Simon Enciso came off the bench to add 10 points and eight assists while Nonoy Baclao and Chris Exciminiano had nine markers each to highlight the Aces total team effort.  “I thought the whole team played well, not just the bench, the starters, I think everybody contributed which helped us win,” Simpson said. “So, congratulations to our team. We just gotta keep going.” The win gave Alaska the much-needed morale boost for an underdog playing against a deep and talented SMB squad, which came into the game looking for a sweep and a record 40th Finals appearance. But the Aces spoiled the Beermen’s party.  “I think they kinda look at it that way at first. But we just persevered, and keep going, and have faith that we can compete with them, and not worried about wins or losses but attitude and effort,” said Simpson. Game 4 is on Sunday at the Big Dome. And Alaska will be ready to force a decider and ultimately get a shot at its 31st PBA Finals stint. “We gotta come back and play them again Sunday and try to play with our heart again and see if that's enough,” Simpson said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

750,000 displaced Syrians returned home in first half of 2018 — UN

An estimated 750,000 internally displaced Syrians returned to their homes through the first half of 2018, nearly equal the amount for all of last year, the United Nations said Friday. The returns have largely occurred in areas that government forces have clawed back from opposition groups including Aleppo, Homs and Rural Damascus, the UN refugee agency said in a statement. The rate of returns this year has clearly outpaced that of 2017, when an estimated 760,000 people went back to homes they had been forced to flee. UNHCR said that in 2017 it had "ramped up its capacity inside Syria" in anticipation that larger numbers of internally displaced people (IDPs) would head home to ce...Keep on reading: 750,000 displaced Syrians returned home in first half of 2018 — UN.....»»
