UAAP: What do Juan GDL and Marvin Cruz have in common?

Juan Gomez de Liano is the first player to tally a triple-double in the UAAP in 12 years. With 15 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists, he was, without a doubt, a big part of the University of the Philippines’ much-needed win against University of the East last Sunday. Before him, it was another Fighting Maroon in Marvin Cruz who had the league’s last triple-double in a loss to Ateneo de Manila University in August 2006. As it turns out, Juan GDL and Cruz share more of a connection than just hailing from State U and having triple-double games. “I talk to him. Sometimes, I would go to UPIS practices kasi assistant siya dun,” Juan GDL shared. “So minsan, I go with sina Jordi.” Juan GDL came from UP Integrated School before being promoted to the Seniors squad. He also has a younger brother in Jordi GDL still suiting up there. Cruz, on the other hand, is now serving as an assistant coach for Paolo Mendoza. And apparently, during their training sessions, Juan GDL is a firsthand witness to the talent that allowed Cruz to collect 22 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in one game. “Super galing ni coach Marv,” he said. In that light, the current UP superstar is nothing but glad to be making another kind of bond with the one-time pride of his alma mater. As he put it, “It’s really overwhelming for me na galing UP ulit yung nag-triple-double.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Barangay chief Angelika not seeking higher post

Angelika dela Cruz is well aware that she may come across as a bit intimidating, especially to show biz newbies. But Maine Mendoza, her costar in the sitcom "Daddy's Gurl," didn't have that impression of her.   "Maine was actually the first one to introduce herself and greet me," she told reporters at the recent inauguration of the newly renovated barangay hall of Longos in Malabon City, where the actress is currently serving her second term as chairperson.   "Maine is such a kind girl. She's very courteous---she uses 'po' and 'opo,' and it makes me feel old!" Angelika jested.   But Angelika makes it a point to be welcoming and approachable to young t...Keep on reading: Barangay chief Angelika not seeking higher post.....»»

Ateneo cuts UP down to size to cop solo first in UAAP 81

Ateneo de Manila University has yet again jumped on Katipunan rival University of the Philippines to get back on track in the 81st Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.   With Matt Nieto out due to a fever, it was Jolo Mendoza’s time to shine and he was only flanked by Thirdy Ravena in yet another convincing victory for the Blue Eagles versus the Fighting Maroons, 83-66, on Sunday at the MOA Arena.  Ravena made his presence felt all over with 21 points, 11 rebounds, two steals, and two blocks as for the second time in the season, the defending champions bounced back from a loss at the expense of State U. “It’s important for us to come out strong in the second round because we’re coming off a loss,” assistant coach Sandy Arrespacochaga said.   It was Mendoza and Ravena who joined forces for all of the points in the 13-2 run that broke a tied tally of 48-all late in the third quarter and built up a 61-50 advantage in favor of Ateneo.  Both the double-digit lead and the momentum would remain with until the final buzzer.  Mendoza woud up with 10 piints in just nine minutes on the floor while fellow guard Tyler Tio also stepped up with a season-high 12 points to go along with five assists and two rebounds.  Angelo Kouame also added nine points and 16 rebounds all while helping slow down UP’s Nigerian powerhouse Bright Akhuetie.  Now at 6-2, the Blue Eagles are again alone atop the leaderboard. “This is more than the standings for us. We wanted to mainly focus on our intensity and I think we did a pretty good job on that,” coach Sandy said.  On the other hand, UP fell farther behind in the playoff race with its second straight loss and fifth overall in eight games. Akhuetie still showed the way for them with 20 points and eight rebounds while Paul Desiderio chipped in 16 markers and seven boards.  Gomez de Liano brothers Juan and Javi struggled, however, and only merged for nine points in 4-of-16 shooting while also committing seven turnovers.  BOX SCORES  ATENEO 83 – Ravena 21, Tio 12, Verano 10, Mendoza 10, Asistio 9, Kouame 9, Mamuyac 6, Belangel 4, Go 2, Navarro 0, Black 0, Wong 0  UP 66 – Akhuetie 20, Desiderio 16, Manzo 8, Gomez de Liano Ju 5, Gomez de Liano Ja 4, Dario 3, Jaboneta 2, Prado 2, Murrell 2, Vito 2, Gozum 2, Spencer 0, Lim 0  QUARTER SCORES: 18-15, 35-29, 54-48, 83-66  ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

UAAP: Yet again, Ateneo shows off its enviable depth with Tyler Tio

Matt Nieto sat out for Ateneo de Manila University due to a fever up against the University of the Philippines on Sunday.  For any other team, losing its lead guard would have been a big blow.  The Blue Eagles, however, only soldiered on. “Luckily for us, guys stepped up just like Tyler [Tio]. Ang laking tulong niya lalo nang nawala si Matt,” Thirdy Ravena told reporters post-game.  Indeed, starting in place of Nieto, Tio turned in his best performance of the season with 12 points and five assists – almost matching his season totals of 13 points and five assists before the game.  For the second-year stud, he was only staying true to Ateneo’s identity. “We have a philosophy in the team na ‘next man up’ so when Matt went down, obviously, we were hurt because he’s one of our better players, one of our leaders,” he said.  He then continued, “So the captains and the coaches talked to us point guards and told us we really need to step up.”  Tio did just that, holding down the for the Blue Eagles and helping them get back on track.  Still staying true to their identity, though, he also deflected the credit to his fellow guards in SJ Belangel, Jolo Mendoza, and Adrian Wong. As he put it, “I give props also to Jolo, SJ, and Adrian. It wasn’t just me who stepped up so we just wanted to fill the void left by Matt.”  ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA: Mendoza drops career-high in JRU s comeback win vs EAC

Jose Rizal University has given itself a shot to not finish in last place in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Heavy Bombers scored the first of the two wins to do just that by riding the hot hands of Jed Mendoza and rising over Emilio Aguinaldo College, 81-78, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Mendoza dropped a career-best 26 points to go along with three rebounds and three assists while Aaron Bordon delivered four points and four rebounds including, more importantly, the defensive stop and layup that sealed the deal in their rise to 3-14 in the season. Clinging onto a one-point lead with seven ticks to go on the clock, Bordon put pressure on Generals’ guard Jethro Mendoza and forced the ball to come loose. He then wasted no time going all the way for the layup that finalized the margin of victory. Already with its third win and with one more assignment left in its schedule, JRU can tie EAC which ended its campaign at 4-14 in ninth-place. And since the Heavy Bombers swept the season series between the two teams, technically, they will stand at ninth while the Generals will stand at 10th overall. JP Magullano paced the Generals with a 15-point, 14-rebound double-double. Playing in his last game in the college ranks, Jerome Garcia scored seven points. BOX SCORES JRU 81 – Mendoza 26, Estrella 17, Esguerra 10, Dela Virgen 9, Silvarez 7, Mallari 5, Bordon 4, Aguilar 3, David 0, Doromal 0, Pascual 0.

UAAP: FEU a thorn on the side of Ateneo anew with big-time win

In the span of three days, Far Eastern University has taken down the top two teams in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Drawing contributions from up and down the roster, the Tamaraws stopped erstwhile streaking Ateneo de Manila University dead in its tracks via a convincing 63-60 victory on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. The Blue Eagles were in complete command in the first half only to see FEU go on a 17-7 stampede to tie the tally entering the final frame. “We had a bad start. Against Ateneo, hindi pwede yun kaya hindi nga namin alam kung paano namin nagawa ‘to,” head coach Olsen Racela told reporters post-game. There, the two teams were still going at it and Angelo Kouame pulled the defending champions to just 60-63 with 21.2 ticks to go on the clock. After a defensive stop at the other end, they even had a shot to tie the game. Adrian Wong was not able to find an open man, however, and was forced to put up a contester triple that missed the mark. Not long after, the Tamaraws were celebrating their second straight triumph over a title contender. Just last Sunday, they gave Adamson University its first taste of defeat. Hubert Cani was the only player in double-digits with 12 points to go along with six assists and five rebounds. He definitely wasn’t alone, however, as five players also contributed either nine or eight points. “I just want to give credit to our players. Sinunod nila yung game plan,” coach Olsen said. With top gun Arvin Tolentino serving a one-game suspension, veteran Richard Escoto and youngster Brandrey Bienes stepped up big-time by merging for 12 points and eight rebounds. With the win, FEU now stands in joint second in the standings at the end of the first round with also 5-2 Ateneo. Last season, FEU took Ateneo to the limit when the two teams met in the semifinals. The Blue Eagles also had only one player in double-digit scoring in Angelo Kouame who posted a 16-point, 12-rebound double-double to go along with four blocks. Thirdy Ravena struggled with just eight points, four assists, and two steals before fouling out with three minutes remaining. BOX SCORES FEU 63 – Cani 12, Parker 9, Inigo 9, Comboy 8, Orizu 8, Bienes 8, Stockton 5, Escoto 4, Ebona 0, Tuffin 0, Gonzales 0, Bayquin 0 ATENEO 60 – Kouame 16, Verano 8, Ravena 8, Nieto Mi 8, Asistio 6, Mamuyac 6, Mendoza 4, Go 2, Wong 2, Tio 0, Navarro 0, Belangel 0, Nieto Ma 0, Black 0 QUARTER SCORES: 11-19, 22-32, 39-39, 63-60 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA Season 94: Altas near last semis seat

University of Perpetual Help secured at least a playoff for the last Final Four berth in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition after an 81–67 win over Emilio Aguinaldo College on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Altas won their sixth straight win to improve to 11-5 win-loss record and tighten their grip at the fourth spot. The victory also gave Perpetual some cushion against fifth running College of St. Benilde (8-7). Kim Aurin finished with a personal-best 26 points, Prince Eze got 14 markers and pulled down 16 rebounds while Jelo Razon got 11 points for the Las Pinas-based squad. Perpetual broke open the game with a huge third quarter push after heading into halftime with just a 37-35 lead. “We struggled a bit nu’ng the first half. Medyo tight ang mga bata, gusto tambakan agad. Pero normally sa mga games na ganito, yun ang inaasahan mong mangyari,” said Altas coach Frankie Lim. “Buti na lang nag-settle down.” “We had a strong third. We outscored them by 10 points in the third. Mas maganda ang flow ng opensa namin (sa second half),” he added. The Altas opened the third with a 15-2 start and outscored the Generals, 24-14, in the canto to control the game. The Generals lost its center Hamadou Laminou with just 22.6 seconds remaining and EAC trailing, 61-47, with a cut on his left eye. The center slammed his head on the floor after losing his balance on a turnaround and Perpetual’s Jerome Pasia landing on the back of Laminou’s head. Without their leading scorer and main man inside the paint, the Generals struggled and fell to 4-13 card. Laminou finished with 17 points, Jethro Mendoza also had 17 markers while JP Magullano got 10 points and 10 boards in a lost cause for the Generals.   Box score: Perpetual (81) --- Aurin 26, Eze 14, Razon 11, Coronel 8, Jimenez 8, Peralta 5, Charcos 4, Mangalino 3, Pasia 2, Cuevas 0, Sese 0, Tamayo 0. EAC (67) --- Laminou 17, Mendoza 17, Cadua 6, Corilla 4, Diego 4, Natividad 4, Gonzales 3, Tampoc 0, Garcia 0, Bautista 0, Bugarin 0, Neri 0, Fuentes 0.

Man wins woman’s weight in beer at wife-carrying contest

NEWRY, Maine (AP) --- Baseball's fall classic focuses on an American pastime. A Maine ski resort has its own fall classic based on a Finnish tradition. More than 30 teams from Maine to California participated Saturday in the North American Wife Carrying Championship. The event at the Sunday River ski resort featured male competitors completing a 278-yard obstacle course while carrying a woman. The legend behind the event is based on Finland's "Ronkainen the Robber," whose gang was known to pillage villages and take the women. Jesse Wall and Christine Arsenault won the event.
