First time, first gold for fastest man in 2017 Palaro

SAN JOSE, ANTIQUE – Even before he crossed the finish line on Wednesday, Veruel Verdadero knew he had the 100m dash in the bag. So much so that seconds before he officially won a gold medal in the 2017 Palarong Pambansa, he was already flexing his biceps for the cameras. Clocking in at 10.96 seconds, the 15-year-old was ahead by as much as 0.18 than his closest competitor on the track oval of the Binirayan Sports Complex. Verdadero’s first-ever gold medal comes a year after he didn’t even make the finals in the previous national meet. “Last year, first time ko po sa secondary. Pero last year din po, laglag ako,” he shared. Who knew that, after all, all the young sprinter needed for a win was a change of scenery? Representing SOCCEKARGEN a year ago, Verdadero will now take home a medal to CALABARZON where he has transferred. “Lumipat po ako dahil sa pag-aaral ng ate ko kasi pumunta siya ng NCR para sa college,” he said, while also making it clear that he only felt grateful for his time in Sultan Kudarat where he first started running. Now enrolled in Emilio Aguinaldo College in Dasmarinas, the incoming Grade 9 student is hoping that this is only the beginning of bigger and better things. “Sobrang sarap po ng ganitong pakiramdam. Sana po maramdaman ko ‘to ulit,” he expressed. Indeed, for 2017’s fastest man, those bigger and better things are perhaps just a few more flexes of the biceps away. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

In tense political times, NBA heading to Israel this summer

em>By Jon Krawczynski, Associated Press /em> As the NBA prepares to bring its Basketball Without Borders program to Israel this summer, league officials hope that the first trip to the country can help bring children together during a time of increasing tension. Basketball Without Borders has visited cities across the globe since 2001, using the sport to promote cultural understanding and active living. The first camp was held in Italy, but brought together Vlade Divac and Toni Kukoc, teammates on the former Yugoslavian national team that grew estranged during the political turmoil that ensued as the country fractured. Now the NBA and FIBA are going to Israel, a nation that has long had a great passion for basketball, during a time of unrest in the Middle East. 'We're looking forward to the chance to bring all communities together for this program,' said Kathy Behrens, NBA president of social responsibility and player programs. 'This is going to be about bringing the Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Druids and other communities together.' The camp will take place from Aug. 13-16 in Netanya. The top teenagers from over 30 countries, including Israel, Spain, Germany and France, will get coaching and tutoring from NBA and FIBA players, coaches and former stars, including former Spurs All-Star David Robinson. The teens will also perform community outreach in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. Israel has a vibrant basketball community, and several professional teams from the country have traveled to the United States to play NBA teams in exhibition games. 'It's a country that loves basketball,' Behrens said. 'I think they will be a great host. It has an extraordinarily rich history. So I think the people who are going to be at the camp participating will learn a lot and certainly appreciate that aspect of it.' Behrens said the league has been talking to active players about participating in a program that has visited 25 countries on six continents since its inception. 'It's really become part of what the NBA is about in terms of trying to grow the game on a global scale,' Behrens said. 'And we think this program because of everything that it does in terms of bringing people together, bridging cultural divides, language barriers, it really has cemented itself as a key part of our calendar.' While it is not the main goal of the program, 23 players who have attended the camp over the years were on opening-night rosters this season, including Marc Gasol, Danilo Gallinari and Omri Casspi. 'It's great to see the NBA and FIBA recognize Israel's basketball development efforts by hosting the camp there for the first time,' said Casspi, the first Israeli to play in an NBA game. 'I look forward to working with Europe's top male and female players and showing them the beauty and culture of my home country.'       .....»»

Hawks-Wizards, Bulls-Celtics headed to testy Game 5s

em>By Jon Krawczynski, Associated Press /em> Paul Millsap has accused the Washington Wizards of bringing mixed martial arts to the court. Jimmy Butler has had it up to here with Boston's Marcus Smart. As the series between the Hawks and Wizards and Celtics and Bulls each enter pivotal Game 5s on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time), the tension and pressure is surfacing all over the place. The latest dustup came after Boston won its second straight game in Chicago to even that series at 2-2, with Butler essentially accusing Smart, the rugged Celtics guard, of being a fake tough guy. 'We're not going to sit here and get in each other's faces,' Butler said after the game. 'He's not about that life.' Smart tried to keep the focus on the game when asked about Butler's comments on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL time), but it was clear that he took exception to the characterization even if he didn't want to get into a war of words with the Bulls star. 'I can show you better than I can tell you. . Last time I checked if you gonna say somebody ain't about that life you should know, right?' Smart said. 'We're gonna keep this Chicago Bulls vs. Boston Celtics. Not Marcus vs. Jimmy.' The Hawks were in danger of getting bullied out of the first round quickly after the Wizards, adopting the Death Row D.C. moniker that embodied the notorious hip hop label, got physical to win games one and two. But the Hawks responded in Atlanta to even the series, with Millsap delivering 29 points, 14 rebounds and five assists in game three. 'We've got home court for a reason,' Wizards guard John Wall said after the game four loss. 'It's an opportunity for us to go home, take care of what we need to do and come back here on Friday (Saturday, PHL time).” Here is what to know heading into Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time): ___ strong>Hawks at Wizards, Series tied 2-2 /strong> em> strong>NEED TO KNOW: /strong> /em>After looking lethargic to fall behind 2-0 in the series, the Hawks came alive back home in Atlanta. Dwight Howard helped lead the way in game four with 16 points and 15 rebounds, looking more like the athletic paint prowler he was earlier in his career. Now the series shifts back to Washington, where the Wizards flexed their way through the first two games. The Wizards won 30 games at home during the regular season, the second-most in the Eastern Conference. em> strong>KEEP AN EYE ON: /strong> /em>The Hawks role players. They were the difference in Atlanta, and the Wizards couldn't match their depth. Jose Calderon had 10 points and five assists, Taurean Prince had 11 points and seven rebounds and Kent Bazemore had 16 points and seven assists, giving the Hawks a dizzying balance that had the Wizards scrambling on defense. Role players tend to play better at home, so their ability to sustain those efforts in Washington will be crucial. em> strong>INJURY UPDATE: /strong> /em> None. em> strong>PRESSURE IS ON: /strong> /em>Markieff Morris. The Wizards forward has been vocal in this series, calling Millsap a 'crybaby' at one point. But after scoring 21 points in the game one victory, he has scored just 21 points in the next three games combined. He went 7-for-24 from the field in Atlanta, and the Wizards need him to make some shots to take some of the attention away from Wall and Bradley Beal. ___ strong>Bulls at Celtics, Series tied 2-2 /strong> em> strong>NEED TO KNOW: /strong> /em> After being thoroughly outplayed in games one and two, the Celtics have started to resemble the team that outfought Cleveland down the stretch for the East's No. 1 seed. The two biggest reasons have been the broken right thumb of the Bulls' Rajon Rondo suffered in game two and the decision by Boston coach Brad Stevens to go smaller since then by sitting starter Amir Johnson in favor of energetic scorer Gerald Green. The move has worked out with Green scoring eight points in game three, and posting 18 points and seven rebounds in game four. The Bulls will now try to get a similar boost with Chicago coach Fred Hoiberg saying he will start Isaiah Canaan at point guard in place of Jerian Grant. em> strong>KEEP AN EYE ON: /strong> /em>Isaiah Thomas. The Celtics star has played with a heavy heart after the sudden death of his sister, but he was so effective in game four that Hoiberg accused him of carrying the ball. 'Out of everything I do on the court, he wants to bring that up,' Thomas said. 'I mean, it is what it is. I'm just gonna continue to dribble the ball the way I know how.' em> strong>INJURY UPDATE: /strong> /em> Rondo did some shooting before practice on Tuesday (Wednesday, PHL tim) and did not have a cast on his right hand. He's out for game five, but Hoiberg at least left open the possibility of him returning before the end of the series. em> strong>PRESSURE IS ON: /strong> /em> The Bulls. While Rondo's loss was a big blow, Chicago must do a better job of sharing the ball than it has the last two games. The Bulls' assists have dropped from 22 and 28 in games one and two with Rondo to just 14 and 19 in games three and four without him. ___ em>AP Sports Writer Kyle Hightower in Boston contributed to this report /em> .....»»

UAAP coaches begin recruitment battle in Palaro

With the 79th UAAP women’s volleyball Finals schedule moved to a later date, De La Salle University head coach Ramil de Jesus found time to scout potential recruits for the Lady Spikers when he visited the 2017 Palarong Pambansa in San Jose de Buenavista, Antique. De Jesus and other collegiate coaches were spotted in the annual national sports meet for elementary and high school students. Palarong Pambansa serves as a fishing ground for coaches looking for potential talents. The meet is also a battleground for mentors hoping to land blue chip recruits.  Aside from De Jesus, other collegiate coaches seen scouting for recruits are University of Sto. Tomas mentor Kungfu Reyes, Jerry Yee of University of the Philippines and Obet Javier of NCAA champion Arellano University. Some of the country’s best volleybelles that are products of Palarong Pambansa are Alyssa Valdez, Kim Fajardo, Jho Maraguinot, Ana Gopico, Grethcel Soltones, Sisi Rondina and Bernadeth Pons.   The defending champion Lady Spikers and their archrivals Ateneo de Manila Lady Eagles’ best-of-three Finals series opener was moved from Saturday to May 2 in deference to the country’s hosting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit this week. All the games of their sixth straight championship showdown will be held at the Big Dome. Game 2 is on May 6 while Game 3, if necessary, is on May 10. .....»»

Hendricks lifts Cubs, Turner hits cycle

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Kyle Hendricks rediscovered his 2016 form, limiting the Pittsburgh Pirates to four hits over six innings to outduel Gerrit Cole and lead the Chicago Cubs to a 1-0 win in Major League Baseball on Tuesday night. Hendricks (2-1) struck out two and walked three, and Wade Davis worked a perfect ninth for his fifth save as the Cubs won for the sixth time in seven games. Addison Russell doubled in the second off Cole (1-3) and scored when second baseman Alen Hanson airmailed first base on a Jason Heyward grounder, the Pirates' major league-high 20th error this season. Pittsburgh has lost six of eight. NATIONALS 15, ROCKIES 12 DENVER (AP) — Trea Turner hit for the third cycle in Nationals history and drove in a career-high seven runs, helping Washington to a win over Colorado on a frigid night. Turner — with a red ski mask covering his face — had a single in the first, a two-run double in the second, a two-run homer in the sixth and a bases-loaded triple in the seventh. It was the first cycle by the Nationals since Cristian Guzman on Aug. 28, 2008. Turner's seven RBIs are tied for second-most in a single game in Nationals history. Daniel Murphy also had a big night, tying a career best by driving in five runs. Enny Romero (2-1) earned the win by pitching 1 1/3 scoreless innings a night after taking the loss. German Marquez (0-1) was roughed up in his first start of the season ASTROS 4, INDIANS 2 CLEVELAND (AP) — Dallas Keuchel (4-0) pitched a six-hitter, allowing home runs to Austin Jackson in the third and Michael Brantley in the ninth that raised his ERA to 1.22. Josh Reddick gave Houston a 3-1 lead with a two-run single in the fifth. Josh Tomlin (1-3), then took a home run away from Jason Kipnis with a leaping catch at the center-field fence in the bottom half. Houston is 10-2 since April 11 and leads the AL West at 14-6. Astros second baseman Jose Altuve and outfielder Teoscar Hernandez collided in right while chasing Yan Gomes' eighth-inning popup, which dropped for a single. Altuve banged up his left shoulder and Hernandez bruised his left leg. RAYS 2, ORIOLES 0 BALTIMORE (AP) — Austin Pruitt combined with four relievers on a two-hitter in his first big league start. Pruitt allowed one hit in three innings, Danny Farquhar got two outs, Jumbo Diaz went 1 1/3 innings, Chase Whitley (1-0) contributed three perfect innings and Alex Colome finished for his fifth save. Jonathan Schoop had a second-inning double and Chris Davis a fourth-inning infield single. Wade Miley (1-1) gave up four hits and six walks in seven innings. Tim Beckham hit an RBI single and Derek Norris added a run-scoring fly ball in the fourth, when Miley walked three. TIGERS 19, MARINERS 9 DETROIT (AP) — James McCann, Justin Upton and Alex Avila homered for Detroit — and that was before the Tigers added nine runs in the fifth inning en route to this rout of the Seattle Mariners. Felix Hernandez (2-2) allowed four runs in two innings in his shortest outing since 2015, and Seattle's next two pitchers fared even worse. Detroit finished with 24 hits, 19 of which came in the first five innings. That was despite injuries that kept Miguel Cabrera, J.D. Martinez and Jose Iglesias out of the lineup. Jordan Zimmermann (2-1) allowed five runs in six innings. Jean Segura, Danny Valencia and Nelson Cruz hit solo homers for Seattle, but that wasn't nearly enough to keep up with Detroit's offensive onslaught. Mikie Mahtook added another home run for the Tigers in the eighth. Ian Kinsler had four hits and four runs before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the seventh. DODGERS 2, GIANTS 1 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Clayton Kershaw struck out seven over seven innings in another impressive performance in San Francisco's home ballpark as Los Angeles ended a four-game losing streak against its rival. Kershaw (4-1) allowed six hits and one run, walking one as he improved to 11-4 in 19 outings and 18 starts in San Francisco's waterfront ballpark. The Dodgers, who were on the other end of a 2-1 result a night earlier, also ended a six-game skid at AT& T Park to avoid matching the franchise's longest winless stretch in San Francisco from April 21-Sept. 28, 2015. Lefty Ty Blach (0-1) allowed two runs and four hits in five innings making his first start in place of injured Madison Bumgarner. The ace southpaw bruised his ribs and sprained the AC joint in his pitching shoulder in a dirt bike accident last Thursday during a day off in Colorado. ANGELS 2, ATHLETICS 1, 11 INNINGS ANAHEIM, California (AP) — Kole Calhoun ripped a two-out single in the 11th inning to score Danny Espinosa and send Los Angeles to a victory over Oakland. Jesse Hahn pitched eight innings for Oakland and JC Ramirez went seven for Los Angeles as the game remained scoreless until Josh Phegley and Mike Trout hit solo homers in the 10th. Ryan Madson (0-2) allowed singles to Espinosa and Calhoun in the 11th after Brooks Pounders (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for the win. BLUE JAYS 6, CARDINALS 5, 11 INNINGS ST. LOUIS (AP) — Chris Coghlan made an acrobatic, run-scoring leap over All-Star catcher Yadier Molina, and Marcus Stroman came across with the go-ahead run after pinch hitting in the 11th inning and doubling for his first major league hit in Toronto's win over St. Louis. With the score 2-2, Coghlan walked in the seventh and sped around the bases on Kevin Pillar's triple in the right-field corner, which hit high off the fence over Stephen Piscotty and bounced back toward the infield. Piscotty's throw to the plate was slightly up the third-base line, and Molina leaned down to pick up the ball after its third hop. As Molina reached for the ball, the 31-year-old Coghan hurled himself over the catcher, somersaulted and landed on the plate with his helmet and left hand. Jason Grilli (1-2) struck out the side in the 10th for Toronto and Ryan Tepera pitched the 11th for his first save. Stroman scored on a throwing error by shortstop Aledmys Diaz. Miguel Socolovich (0-1) took the loss. BREWERS 9, REDS 1 MILWAUKEE (AP) — Eric Thames hit his major league-leading 11th home run — his eighth against Cincinnati this season — as the Milwaukee Brewers cruised to victory over the Reds. In his first season with the Brewers, Thames capped a five-run sixth with a two-run drive off reliever Robert Stephenson. Zach Davies (2-2) allowed six hits in five scoreless innings, lowering his ERA from 8.24 to 6.57. He stranded a pair of runners in three innings. Oliver Drake pitched a hitless sixth and Tommy Milone allowed two hits over three innings, including Adam Duvall's eighth-inning homer, for his second big league save, his first since August 2015. Scott Feldman (1-2) gave up four runs, five hits and five walks in five innings. DIAMONDBACKS 9, PADRES 3 PHOENIX (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt drove in three runs to match a team record with his fourth straight multi-RBI game and Patrick Corbin struck out nine in seven innings as Arizona rolled over San Diego. The Diamondbacks jumped on Clayton Richard (2-3) early and kept hitting to match the 2008 team for the franchise's best home start at 10-2. Corbin (2-3) allowed two runs and eight hits, including a solo homer by Jabari Blash in the seventh inning. TWINS 8, RANGERS 1 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Ervin Santana delivered his fourth straight outstanding start, Miguel Sano sparked a seven-run fifth inning with a leadoff homer and Minnesota pounded Texas. Santana (4-0) allowed a run, four hits and one walk with six strikeouts in seven innings. Both homers came off Andrew Cashner (0-2), who labored through his four-plus innings. He matched a career high with six walks, allowed five hits, had a wild pitch and threw 92 pitches. WHITE SOX 10, ROYALS 5 CHICAGO (AP) — Todd Frazier drove in three runs, Leury Garcia had three hits and Chicago got its second straight one-sided win over Kansas City. Kansas City is 0-6 on a seven-game trip, its longest skid since losing eight consecutive games last June. Last in the AL Central at 7-13, the Royals are off to their worst 20-game start since opening 6-14 in 2012, when they finished 72-90. Frazier's sacrifice fly tied the score in the third inning, and Chicago took a 4-2 lead in the fourth against Danny Duffy (2-1) when Omar Narvaez and Garcia hit consecutive doubles, and Tim Anderson followed with an RBI single. Dan Jennings (2-0) retired all five batters he faced to win in relief. .....»»

Clash of Heroes reset to May 15

In deference to the finals of the University Athletic Association (UAAP) women’s volleyball tournament, the organizing PSC-POC Media Group and Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) decided to reset the Clash of Heroes to May 15 at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. LVPI acting president Peter Cayco said they want players of both Ateneo and La Salle to focus on winning the UAAP title before shooting for a slot in the 18-woman national roster headed for the 29th Southeast Asian Games. A fund-raising project for the foreign training and exposure of the national men’s and women’s volleyball teams, the Clash of Heroes was initially set Friday, few days before the Lady Eagles and Lady Spikers formally open their best-of-three titular showdown. “Holding the event to a later date is very sound and logical,” said Cayco, who was authorized by LVPI president Joey Romasanta to spearhead the formation of the national squad that will campaign in the biennial meet in Kuala Lumpur this August. “Aside from giving Ateneo and La Salle players the chance to set their attention on winning the title, this will also allow fans to enjoy the UAAP finals and cheer for the national team. This move is a win-win solution for all of us.” FIVB Women’s Club World Championship veteran Kim Fajardo, Philippine Superliga (PSL) Most Valuable Player (MVP) Dawn Macandili and rising star Kim Kianna Dy of La Salle as well as Kat Tolentino and Maddie Madayag of Ateneo would be affected if the organizers would not reset the Clash of Heroes. “These players are our future,” Cayco said. “We want to give them the opportunity to compete against the veteran players in the pool and fight for their slots in the national team.” Former Ateneo superstar Alyssa Valdez, former La Salle sensation Mika Reyes and veterans Rachel Anne Daquis, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Rhea Dimaculangan, Jaja Santiago and Aby Marano lead the women’s national pool under the mentorship of Francis Vicente. On the other hand, reigning National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) MVP Johnvic de Guzman as well as former national team members Peter Torres, Ran Abdilla and Mark Alfafara banner a star-studded cast in the men’s side to be handled by Sammy Acaylar. Tickets for the Clash of Heroes are pegged at P200 (lower box) and P100 (upper box) and are still available at the media center of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex. For inquiries, call Reuben Terrado at (02) 523 4634 or tweet him at @reubensports. .....»»
