PBA: Caram’s career game earns him Player of the Week

Anjo Caram’s career game in the PBA couldn’t have come at a better time for Meralco. The wily guard came through with a career-high 30 points in the Bolts’ 103-89 win over NorthPort Batang Pier that solidified their bid to finish as the no. 1 seeded team heading to the playoffs of the Governors Cup. Coach Norman Black described Caram’s performance as ‘awesome’ after going 11-of-15 from the field, including 4-of-6 from three-point range. He scored 16 points in the fourth quarter alone to match his previous career-best of 16. “He really gave us a big lift and pretty much guided us to the victory,” said Black of his prized-guard out of San Beda. “So I gave him a lot of credit for leading the team. He knew going to the game that Baser (Amer) was not 100 percent and Anjo came and really stepped up and made big shots for us.” Not to be denied, Caram emerged as the PBA Press Corps-Cignal Player of the Week for the period (Nov. 4-10). The 28-year-old pride of Iloilo City did the feat by becoming the shortest PBA player at 5-foot-6 to score 30 points in a game as per league chief statistician Fidel Mangonon III. Caram’s offensive explosion helped the Bolts keep their winning streak at five and improved at 8-2 overall for a tie with NLEX on top of the standings with a week to go before the end of the eliminations. The Meralco guard won the weekly citation over NLEX’s Jericho Cruz, who also received a vote for scoring the game-winning basket as the Road Warriors rallied from 26-points down to nip defending champion Magnolia, 86-85. Other players considered for the honor were Caram’s Meralco teammates Raymond Almazan and Chris Newsome, Japeth Aguilar of Barangay Ginebra, Rain or Shine’s Javee Mocon, JR Quinahan of NLEX, the San Miguel Beer duo of June Mar Fajardo and Arwind Santos, along with Magnolia’s Ian Sangalang and Paul Lee......»»

NCAA 95: Coach Bonnie downed San Beda with a little help from his friends

Colegio de San Juan de Letran had gone winless against San Beda University since 2015. That all came to a close, Tuesday at MOA Arena, as the Knights upended the erstwhile undefeated Red Lions. The last time the Intramuros-based squad had triumphed over their archrivals was in Game 3 of the NCAA 91 Men's Basketball Tournament. In Seasons 92 to 94, they then lost all six of their meetings and in Season 95, suffered two more setbacks in the elimination round. On the biggest stage and under the brightest lights, however, Letran came through and pulled off a shocker. And so, the Knights drew first blood in the best-of-three Finals and, most impressively, dealt San Beda its first defeat in the tournament. The man with the plan for that? First-year head coach Bonnie Tan. Of course, the veteran mentor wasn't alone and in fact, had quite a collection of brilliant minds behind him. "Ang laking tulong nun kasi 'di naman ako nahihiyang sabihing this is our first time in the Finals kaya to get some encouraging words and pointers from legends and (former) players for a championship game like this was big," he said. Part of coach Bonnie's staff are Ginebra point guard LA Tenorio as well as seasoned lieutenants Rensy Bajar, Lou Gatumbato, and Raymond Tiongco. Even more were behind the blue and white bench as NorthPort head coach Pido Jarencio and assistant Jeff Napa were also seen sharing their mind with players during timeouts. And alongside Jarencio and Napa? Well, Letran special assistant to the rector for sports development and San Miguel Corporation sports director Alfrancis Chua, NorthPort team manager Erick Arejola, Columbian governor Bobby Rosales and head coach Johnedel Cardel, and Magnolia governor Rene Pardo. Coach Bonnie, ever humble, had nothing but thanks for all those brilliant minds at his back. "In business, you need partners to be successful and in sports naman, we need friends lalo na yung mga may alam kung paano manalo," he said. He then continued, "Friends ko yan lahat so welcome sila - brainstorm and synergy kami. I'm happy that they're supporting the team and supporting me sa pinasukan ko." Still, the Knights' mentor reminded everybody that their job is far from finished. "'Di pa rin tapos 'to. Although we have the momentum, sana 'di na pakawalan ng players," he said. He then continued, "Sila naman naglalaro so kung gusto nila, kunin nila. We're here to guide and motivate them lang - the rest is up to them." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

SEA Games: Alab burns Gilas as both teams split friendlies

San Miguel-Alab Pilipinas pretty much proved it's for real. Alab took down Gilas Pilipinas Monday at the Meralco Gym, holding off the national team for a big 93-89 victory. After losing a narrow decision last week, Alab got back at Gilas as the two teams split their pair of practice games. Alab is preparing to regain the ABL championship while Gilas is busy preparing for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. RR Pogoy led Gilas with 14 points while Japeth Aguilar and June Mar Fajardo scored 12 apiece for the national team. Gilas Pilipinas was supposed to take on a reinforced Taiwanese team next week for another practice game but that's been cancelled now. Instead, the national team will regroup and resume normal training.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games: Close loss to Alab the perfect lesson for Gilas

Gilas Pilipinas hoped for a lesson as they engaged Alab Pilipinas for a pair of practice games in back-to-back weeks. The national team got just that as Alab handed them a 93-89 loss Monday at the Meralco Gym. It’s the first loss for Gilas on its buildup for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. “It’s a step back, but I think it’s a good step back that we have,” head coach Tim Cone said. “We understand how hard this is gonna be. This is not gonna be easy. It’s a good message for everybody,” he added. Despite losing to Alab, Gilas still has some good stuff to take from the game. Add that to the fact that they now know winning games will not be as easy, it gives the national team actual stuff to work on and not just try to overwhelm opponents with sheer talent. “The good news is we battled. Guys were pulling for each other all the time. We were unselfish. We tried hard on defense, although we were disorganized. Those were all the positives that we wanna move forward on,” coach Tim said. “Hopefully this is one step back, two steps forward. It was a good step for us. I just hate losing, that’s all,” Cone added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games: Despite loss to his Alab, Gilas will be fine says Jimmy

Gilas Pilipinas was given a dose of reality Monday as the national team took a beating at the hands of Alab Pilipinas in a practice game at the Meralco Gym. But despite taking an L this time, Alab head coach and Gilas assistant Jimmy Alapag says that the national team will have no reason to worry too much when it’s time to play in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. Gilas will be fine according to the former national team captain. “Other Southeast Asian teams won’t have three imports. So obviously that was a big advantage for us,” Alapag said as his Alab stopped Gilas on its tracks with a 93-89 win. “It will be challenging for this group, considering how long the PBA season has already been. But you look at the caliber of players that on that side, with the leadership and experience, we’ll be fine,” he added. Gilas Pilipinas is stacked with talent from top to bottom. And as long as the national team continues to prepare well, that talent will ultimately win out in the SEA Games. “For Gilas, again, it’s just the incredible amount of size and shooting. Everytime coach Tim made a sub, it was Japeth and June Mar or Christian and Vic Manuel. Then of course, the guard rotation is one of the best,” Alapag said. “The depth of that team is really going to be our strength for the SEA Games,” coach Jimmy added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: NLEX completes 26-point comeback to stun Magnolia

NLEX is the PBA’s comeback kings for the 2019 Governors’ Cup. The Road Warriors came back from 26 points down to stun defending champion Magnolia Sunday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo, 86-85. Tied at 80, the Hotshots went up by two with 11 seconds to go after five straight points from Paul Lee. NLEX looked like a goner after JR Quinahan missed a go-ahead three and a defensive rebound by Hotshots import Romeo Travis. But then Jericho Cruz played hero for the Road Warriors, forcing a jump ball with Travis that eventually led to a pair of free throws for Kiefer Ravena. The Phenom missed the second but Cruz was there to pick up the ball and put NLEX up, 87-86. With one second left, Lee missed a long three and NLEX kept first place with an 8-1 record. The Road Warriors also joined Meralco with playoff bonuses in the quaterfinals. The Hotshots dropped to 5-5 with the loss. Import Mike Harris scored 22 points for NLEX, including a booming triple to tie things up at 83, answering Paul Lee’s own three the possession before. Quinahan added 14 points for the Road Warriors while Cruz finished with 13 points to cap his heroic effort for the win. For Magnolia, it was Lee that paced the offense, dropping 24 points. Ian Sangalang ended up with 19 points for the champs.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
