King stars as Columbian blasts Blackwater in PBA Comms’ Cup opener

Columbian Dyip ushered in a new era for the Kia Motors franchise as planned. The Dyip opened the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup in style after trouncing the Blackwater Elite, 126-98, Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. With its import CJ Aiken having little to show on the offensive end, Columbian found an unlikely weapon in Jerramy King. King, whom the Dyip picked up from the free agent pool, erupted for a career-best 30 points that went with seven rebounds, four assists and three steals. "Good to win the first game, but I expected the game to be more of a grind than anything else, but our guys blew them out with our energy," said Columbian coach Ricky Dandan. "But more than a...Keep on reading: King stars as Columbian blasts Blackwater in PBA Comms’ Cup opener.....»»

"It's nice that the PBA is allowing some level of physicality, but if it gets to a point where players intentionally hurt each other, we should all question that," said TNT head coach Nash...Keep on reading: TNT blows big lead, beats GlobalPort in heated game.....»»

Clutch Cardinals send UP to 0-2 start in Filoil Preseason

Mapua University could only be better than it was a season ago – and it’s already showing that in the start of the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup. Riding the hot hands of Laurenz Victoria early and going on the guts of Exe Biteng and Eric Jabel late, the Cardinals pounded on already grounded University of the Philippines, 79-78, on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Biteng scored 19 points, seven coming in the fourth quarter burst that turned a five-point deficit into a 67-62 edge. The Intramuros-based squad held onto the lead for the remainder of the game, but still saw Juan Gomez de Liano pull the Fighting Maroons to just 73-75 with 27 ticks to go courtesy of back-to-back threes. Biteng and Jabel would close the door on them for good, however, with an escape layup and two free throws, respectively. Jabel wound up with 13 points in his first game in the Seniors while Victoria chipped in 12 markers, five assists, and three rebounds. Mapua also trotted out a formidable frontline with Justin Serrano, Warren Bonifacio, and Christian Bunag combining for 17 points and 19 rebounds. The three also did their part in slowing down State U powerhouse Bright Akhuetie who still had 30 points and 18 rebounds, but muffed on nine of his game-high 22 field goals. Paul Desiderio and Juan GDL added 13 and 12, respectively, but those still proved to be far from enough from preventing their second straight setback to start the preseason tournament. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University is first to light up the leaderboard in Group B, after breezing past Arellano University, 74-65. Hubert Cani showed the way with 15 points, including the big baskets the stopped the Chiefs dead in their tracks. Richard Escoto and Brandrey Bienes also added 10 markers, respectively. Mauie Sera Josef paced Arellano with 15 points on top of five rebounds and three assists in the losing effort.
