PBA: Tenorio, Gin Kings quick to move on to Game 4

While it was Justin Brownlee that did most of the heavy liftin to bring back Barangay Ginebra from an 18-point deficit in Game 3 of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup semifinals, it was actually LA Tenorio who hit the final marginal basket to keep the Gin Kings' title defense alive. Tied at 103, Tenorio hit the go-ahead floater with 14 seconds to go. And after Ginebra forced a Magnolia miss, Tenorio also hit the last two free throws to seal the final tally. "Na-shoot siya eh," Tenorio said on his final field goal. "Well opportunity yun na nabigay sakin on that particular possession, might as well take it di ba? Everyone is expecting Justin to get the ball. We got nothing to lose in that possession, I was just thinking of being aggressive and see what was gonna happen," he added. Tenorio was terrible all game long for the Gin Kings, struggling to find his shot. While LA did finish with 14 points for the game, 11 of them came in the final period to help Ginebra pull through. "Actually struggling ak othe whole game, medyo iba yung pakiramdam ko today eh. But that's not an excuse," he said. "I think the whole team was really focused today but I cannot say na we really played well," he added. Despite cutting their Manila Clasico deficit in half, Tenorio and the Gin Kings are not quite happy yet. It's just one game after all. "We only got one game, inside the locker room after the game it was nothing, we moved on right away and are thinking about Friday's game right away," Tenorio said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Ateneo overwhelms UST for fine finish in UAAP 81 eliminations

Ateneo de Manila University has won seven straight heading into the Final Four of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Blue Eagles’ latest win was a breeze as they dominated University of Sto. Tomas from start to finish, 102-62, on Wednesday at the MOA Arena. The defending champions began the game as if it was shot out of a cannon, scoring 16 unanswered points in the first six minutes. “We’re happy with the win because one of the first things we told the team is that coach Tab wasn’t there, but his system is already in place,” assistant coach Sandy Arrespacochaga said post-game. Ivorian rookie recruit Angelo Kouame dropped nine of his 22 points in that strong start as he and his team didn’t miss a beat even without head coach Tab Baldwin who was out due to an illness. That strong start ultimately became a 34-13 opening salvo that built up an insurmountable advantage in favor of Ateneo. Fellow first-year player William Navarro joined in on the fun in the second half, scoring eight of his 17 points after halftime while also totaling five rebounds and two assists. BJ Andrade and Jolo Mendoza also added nine points apiece as the Blue Eagles sweep the second round and end the elimination round holding a 12-2 record. “We didn’t want to take a step back or relax. That’s just our sentiments today,” coach Sandy said. Ateneo, though, is still uncertain about whom it will be facing in the Final Four as all of De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, and the University of the Philippines still have fighting chances at the third and fourth-seeds. For the Growling Tigers, Renzo Subido topped the scoring column with 18 points in their first game without super rookie CJ Cansino. They wind up their campaign at 5-9. BOX SCORES ATENEO 102 – Kouame 22, Navarro 17, Mendoza 9, Andrade 9, Go 8, Ravena 6, Asistio 6, Nieto Ma 5, Nieto Mi 5, Black 4, Verano 4, Daves 4, Belangel 3, Wong 0, Tio 0, Mamuyac 0 UST 62 – Subido 18, Agustin 15, Marcos 13, Mahinay 6, Huang 4, Lee 2, Ando 2, Cosejo 2, Bataller 0, Zamora 0, Bonleon 0, Caunan 0 QUARTER SCORES: 34-13, 58-31, 83-42, 102-62 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PBA: Game 3 of Manila Clasico is 'most important of the year' says Travis

Magnolia now has the opportunity to become only the second PBA team to win a series against Justin Brownlee and Brgy. Ginebra. After Monday's win, the Hotshots have taken a commanding 2-0 lead in the Manila Clasico semifinals of the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup. On the brink of a second Finals appearance this season, Magnolia is going for it in Game 3 set for Wednesday. "It's of utmost importance [to win Game 3]. That team is amazing, that's a great team, perennial champions. You don't wanna keep playing them," Hotshots import Romeo Travis said of the Gin Kings, the reigning two-time champions of the Governors' Cup. "You don't wanna keep giving them opportunities so this is the most important game of the year for us. That's just what we wanna do, you don't wanna give this team chances," he added. Since Justin Brownlee entered the scene, Ginebra has won three PBA titles in four conferences. The only miss was in the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup when the TNT KaTropa used a 2-0 lead to win their semifinal series against the Gin Kings, 3-1. The Hotshots are looking to do the same now, but preferably they win this series in three. You don't necessarily want Ginebra to go on one of those "Never Say Die" runs. "We just don't want to give them opportunities to beat you. They're a really good team and if we have a chance to beat them, to move on, that's what we're trying to do," Travis said. "We're not going to a game and say we're going to lose. We're going to try and close out the series the best way we know how and just keep playing Hotshots basketball, which is team. Team above all. Our new mantra is believe, and that's what we're trying to do, just believe," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
