Jalalon-Barroca tandem doing wonders for Hotshots

With Magnolia back in the Finals for the first time in four years, Mark Barroca couldn't help but see a young version of himself in teammate Jio Jalalon. "I see my younger self in Jio when I was starting in the PBA. He's really aggressive on defense. Even if he gets hurt, he keeps on fighting and I'm really proud that he's my teammate," said Barroca. Barroca has been serving mentor for Jalalon since the pesky guard arrived to the Hotshots last season, where they failed to make it past the semifinals. This time, the Hosthots are going to be their first Finals stint since the 2014 Governors' Cup and the duo was instrumental in closing out the Road Warriors in Game 6 on Tuesday...Keep on reading: Jalalon-Barroca tandem doing wonders for Hotshots.....»»

Bad game in NLEX’s semis exit like ‘deep cut’ for Kiefer Ravena

Kiefer Ravena's first semifinals stint didn't end like it started as NLEX bowed out of the2018 PBA Philippine Cup after 89-96 Game 6 defeat on Tuesday. But rather than dwell on subpar showing in the crucial Game 6, the super rookie is sure to use the failure as a motivation in his young professional career. "Bad game, but it keeps me hungrier. It's something that is a deep cut," he said after being held to just nine points on a 3-of-17 shooting from the field in the loss. "(Assistant) coach Sandy told me that this is something that I can't just forget." Ravena gave credit to the Hotshots' defense, admitting it really threw NLEX's groove into disarray as the team shot just 41...Keep on reading: Bad game in NLEX’s semis exit like ‘deep cut’ for Kiefer Ravena.....»»

Jarvey Gayoso’s biggest critic? His dad Jayvee

In just his third season in the UAAP, Ateneo Football’s Jarvey Gayoso has already bagged three straight Best Striker nods, an MVP trophy, and a men’s championship. The star striker has come up big for his team on countless occasions and has emerged as the team’s go-to-guy, even more so now as the young Blue Eagles continue their quest for repeat titles. This year, Gayoso is on pace for another Best Striker nod with 13 goals in eleven matches played, and the defending champion Blue Eagles are second in the league, one point behind top-seeded University of the Philippines. With the way things are going, it may be hard to criticize Gayoso’s play… …that depends, of course, who you ask. Sunday afternoon, Ateneo avenged their first round loss to University of Santo Tomas with a 2-0 win, and Gayoso again had his hand on the win, scoring one of the goals. Watching from the stands was Jarvey’s dad Jayvee. In fact, it was Jayvee’s first time to see Jarvey and the Blue Eagles win a match in the UAAP live, and the younger Gayoso jokingly said that maybe his dad was a bringer of bad luck. “Honestly, this is his first game to watch na we won. I think he’s watched three games na one draw, tapos dalawang talo. After a while I was feeling na baka malas, alam mo naman mga Pinoy, superstitious,” Jarvey said with a laugh. “But then after today, of course, I’m blessed to have him here, he’s a busy guy, and my father drives all the way from Laguna to watch me, along with my mom and my siblings, it’s a nice experience to have him,” While most parents are their child’s biggest fan, Jayvee will be the first to tell you that he isn’t like that. Being a former athlete himself, the former Ateneo basketball star and PBA standout will always see areas of improvement, especially in his son. “I have every reason to be proud of what Jarvey does, but because of my knowledge on sports and how I’ve handled so many players before, Jarvey knows that I’m always tough, I’m here to criticize him, I’m always here to point out the wrong things he does, I always stress to him that without his teammates, his greatness is just 50 percent.” “I’m not the typical type of dad who will, you know, I’m more of the critic rather than, but at the end of the day, of course, my heart, I’m trying to do things to help him out even more, for his life.” Jayvee added. And for Jarvey, it becomes a source of motivation and a different perspective on his growth as a player. “Because my dad’s also an athlete, he’ll always see the things that I can improve on, which is good for me, because I’ll be able to understand what I can’t see and what he sees, and I’ll be able to know what I can further work on.” So far, it seems to be working. As for finally getting to see his son get a win in the UAAP, Jayvee was of course happy, but that doesn’t mean it’s a reason to stop working to get better. “I’m happy of course that they won, I’m happy he was able to score, ako kasi defensive player ako nung ako’y player, so I’m always…I fight him all the time, Jarv, help on defense! Pero nakikita ko nakakapagod din yung ginagawa niyang pagtatakbo ano, but of course I’ll never stop.” “Even if I’m content with what he does, at the end of the day, I am still gonna criticize, like I said, and tell him, may kulang pa din, Jarv. Never be satisfied. Never be satisfied.” Jayvee continued. The win over UST was of course a sweet one, especially for Gayoso, who was visibly down after their first round loss to the Growling Tigers. It was sweeter more so, having his dad around to see it happen. “Nakaka-kaba, siyempre, because your biggest critic is here, but at the same time I love it when he watches, I love doing well and and being able to know that he’s in a good mood because of the way I played, because it’s fulfilling.”.....»»

Kai Sotto towers over foes, then takes selfies with them

Top-seeded Ateneo de Manila High School made quick work of New Ormoc City High School, 98-47, to open its campaign in the 2018 National Basketball Training Center League.

Feds plan to make tobacco less attractive smokers

Cigarettes would contain less addictive nicotine, making them less attractive to smokers, under an "unprecedented" plan of the Food and Drug Administration. Stripping cigarettes of all or most of their addictive power could lead 5 million adults to quit smoking within a year of the plan going into place and another 8 million to quit within five years, according to an analysis published in The New England Journal of Medicine. By 2100, the plan would prevent 33 million people who are now children or young adults from ever taking up tobacco, saving 8 million lives. Non-addictive The idea of reducing nicotine to non-addictive or "minimally addictive" levels is the "cornerston...Keep on reading: Feds plan to make tobacco less attractive smokers.....»»

Cook, Green lead depleted Warriors past Suns 124-109

By Bob Baum, Associated Press PHOENIX (AP) — Quinn Cook scored 16 of his career-high 28 points in a dominant third quarter for Golden State, Draymond Green narrowly missed a triple-double and the severely depleted Warriors handed the Phoenix Suns their eighth straight loss and 23rd in 25 games, 124-109 on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). Nick Young added 20 for the Warriors, who beat Phoenix for the 13th consecutive time despite playing without Stephen Curry (ankle), Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (fractured thumb) -- a trio that averages a combined 73 points per game. The Suns didn't have leading scorer Devin Booker due to a right hand sprain. Green had 25 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists for Golden State, which had lost three of its last four after the injuries began to hit. Josh Jackson scored a career-high 36 points for Phoenix. Troy Daniels added 18. Phoenix led by 15 in the first quarter but was outscored 72-49 in the second half. The Suns scored 12 straight after falling behind 6-0 and used an 11-0 run to go up 31-26 on Marquese Chriss' dunk of a missed Suns free throw. The Suns outscored the Warriors 30-9 over an eight-minute stretch in the first half to take their biggest lead at 50-35 on Daniels' cutting layup with 6:52 left. Phoenix led 60-52 at the break. The Warriors outscored Phoenix 29-7 over one stretch in the third quarter to lead 86-74 on Cook's consecutive three's with 3:34 left. A 7-0 Suns' spurt cut it 88-83, and Golden State led 94-85 entering the fourth. Phoenix never got any closer. Cook, coming off a career-best 25 points in Friday night's (Satruday, PHL time) home loss to Sacramento, made all six of his shots in the third quarter, three of them triples. He finished 10-of-16 shooting, 5-of-6 from deep. TIP-INS Warriors: Kevon Looney scored a career-best 13 points. ... This season, Warriors are 13-7 without Curry, 8-2 without Durant and 2-1 without Thompson. They are 2-4 without Curry and Thompson... Golden State's last loss to Phoenix was Nov. 9, 2014. ...

Alas, NLEX ready for 'chess match' vs. Magnolia

NLEX's dream playoff run continues. Following a 91-79 victory over Magnolia in Game 4 of their semis series, the Road Warriors have tied the best-of-7 at two games apiece. More importantly, NLEX is halfway to making its first-ever PBA Finals appearance. Reduced to a best-of-3 affair, this showdown shifts into higher gear. "Game 5, syempre who wins that game one game away na lang from the Finals. We know the importance of that naman. Siguro, we have to go into practice... kumbaga chess match na to eh," guard Kevin Alas said. "Ako personally, I hoping na we're gonna make history. But it has to start in practice tomorrow. Malaking bagay yun eh. Pag nagpa-practice kami ng maganda, nae-execute namin yung game plan sa practice, nata-translate sa game," he added. After taking a 1-0 lead, the Road Warriors want another shot at getting ahead in this series. However, it's going to take a huge amount of focus and mental toughness for the rather young NLEX crew to pull through. "Siguro it's a matter of giving your 100 percent kasi sometimes going into the game, akala namin, we're feeling good about ourselves eh," Alas said. "Magandang wake up call samin yung back-to-back losses namin [in Games 2 and 3]," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
