MPBL: Wilson establishes new record as San Juan rules North

John Wilson’s milestone game highlighted San Juan-Go-for-Gold’s 109-99 rout of Pasig-Sta. Lucia in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go/MPBL Lakan Cup at the FilOil Flying V Centre, Saturday. Wilson, who only needed four points to reach the 1000-point club heading to this game, drained a three-pointer in the 4:35 mark of the first quarter to become the first player to achieve the feat. He now has 1,020 total points in his tally. The product of Jose Rizal University ended the match 24 points, five rebounds, and four assists to help San Juan keep the title as the Kings of the Northern Division with a 22-3 record. “Kay John, siyempre nakita naman namin na talagang masipag yung bata. Talagang tinrabaho niya yung nakuha niya ngayon, he deserves yung pagkakakuha niya sa achievement na ‘yon,” said San Juan head coach Randy Alcantara. After a tight first quarter, the Knights rallied behind Wilson and Mike Ayonayon, who then led a 15-6 swing in the second quarter which proved to be the difference-maker as it helped the home team take an 11-point lead, 56-45, heading into the second half. The Go-for-Gold-backed squad kept their distance from there, dousing water on the Realtors’ comeback attempts. Ayonayon provided 18 points, eight boards, and five assists while Art Aquino and Orlan Wamar added 12 points apiece for San Juan. The Knights also made it rain from deep, shooting 17-of-33 from three-point distance. On the other hand, Jeric Teng’s 31 points, nine rebounds, and six assists went down the drain as Pasig went down to 14-11, tied with Caloocan in the seventh spot also in the Northern Division. In the earlier contest, Bacolod-Master Sardines pumped life into to its playoff chances after outlasting Basilan-Jumbo Plastic, 96-89. Pao Javelona dropped 21 points, five rebounds, and five assists for the Masters Sardines-owned club -- who moved up to the 11th spot of the Southern Division with a 9-16 card, four games behind eight-running Bicol. "We're not thinking of our chances, what we're doing right now is to play and enjoy also to win as much as we can," said Bacolod head coach Vic Ycasiano. Down by seven points in the final canto, Allyn Bulanadi drilled a three-pointer while Jay Collado converted an and-one play to make it a two-point game for Basilan, 75-77, with 5:49 remaining. Through Ben Adamos and Yankie Haruna, Bacolod managed to widen their lead to six points. Bulanadi and Irven Palencia trimmed the deficit to two once more for Basilan, but Jeric Cañada and Javelona drained consecutive three-pointers, 89-81, to fend off the pesky Steel with under two minutes left. Jess Villahermosa had 15 points while Cañada provided 14 markers founded on four triples. Meanwhile, Bulanadi's 33-point explosion went to waste as Basilan went down to 16-10 and is now tied in the fourth slot with Zamboanga, also in the Southern Division. In the first game, behind Gab Banal’s all-around brilliance, Bacoor City stretched its winning streak to six games after dealing Muntinlupa-Angelis Resort a rough 98-67 beating. Banal posted 11 points, 12 rebounds, and 10 assists to help Bacoor tighten its hold of the second spot in the Southern Division with a 21-5 standing. The Strikers opened the flood gates right from the first whistle, taking a 27-14 lead in the opener before ending the first half with a 52-29 advantage. Looking to close things out, Banal ignited a 10-0 run by draining a three-pointer then dishing out a perfect half-court lob to Ian Melencio. Ken Mark Miranda capped off the spurt with a four-point play, chalking up Bacoor’s biggest lead of the game at 34, 98-64 with 3:07 left in the game. “We just need to stay steady, stay humble and hungry, just keep putting the work and trusting the work. The result will show,” said Bacoor head coach Chris Gavina as he hopes that his wards can sustain their momentum throughout the elimination round. Oping Sumalinog and RJ Ramirez added 13 points apiece, with both drilling three three-pointers each while Mark Montuano chipped in 10 markers. Meanwhile, Jamil Ortouste paced the Cagers – who dropped to 7-20 also in the Southern Division – with 21 points on 9-of-20 shooting from the field.   The Scores: FIRST GAME Bacoor City (98) – Banal 13, Sumalinog 13, Ramirez 13, Canete 11, Montuano 10, Melencio 7, Acidre 6, Mabulac 6, Aquino 6, Acuna 4, Miranda 4, Ochea 3, Andaya 2, Malabag 0 Muntinlupa-Angelis Resort (67) – Ortouste 21, Moralde 10, Ylagan 9, Enguio 7, Mag-isa 7, Rebugio 7, Salaveria 2, Pamulaklakin 2, Po 2, Reyes 0, Buenaflor 0, Gonzales 0 Quarterscores: 27-14, 52-29, 77-52, 98-67 SECOND GAME Bacolod-Masters Sardines (96) -- Javelona 21, Villahermosa 15, Cañada 14, Haruna 14, Adamos 11, Camacho 8, Custodio 6, Gayosa 4, Tansingco 3, Charcos 0 Basilan-Jumbo Plastic (89) -- Bulanadi 33, Collado 15, Dagangon 9, Lunor 6, Bautista 6, Palencia 4, Gabo 3, Alanes 3, Sorela 3, Dumapig 3, Hallare 2, Balucanag 2, Manalang 0 Quarterscores: 18-28, 48-53, 72-67, 96-89 THIRD GAME San Juan-Go for Gold (109) – Wilson 24, Ayonayon 18, Aquino 12, Clarito 12, Wamar 12, Rodriguez 7, Tajonera 6, Ubalde 4, Victoria 3, Subido 3, Bonifacio 2, Reyes 2, Isit 2, Estrella 2, Bunag 0 Pasig-Sta.

Enes Kanter seeks to open school in Oklahoma City

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Former Oklahoma City Thunder player Enes Kanter plans to open a charter school in the metro area that focuses on serving low-income minority students and those from immigrant families with limited English-speaking abilities. Kanter, who currently plays for the Boston Celtics, notified Oklahoma City Public Schools of his intention to open the Enes Kanter School for Exceptional Learning, according to a letter first obtained by The Frontier. He and a group of “civic-minded individuals” from the city will submit a charter school application to the school district on Tuesday, The Oklahoman reported. The Oklahoma City School Board will then consider the application in a vote. Kanter and his associates have not selected a location for the school, but noted that they want to pick a site where “the need is high,” according to the letter. The school would be designed mostly for under-served minority and immigrant students from fourth through 12th grade. Kanter played for the Thunder from 2014 to 2017 before he was traded to the New York Knicks. “Despite playing for other teams, I continue to return to Oklahoma City to host my annual basketball summer camps and to support programs that serve the OKC children,” Kanter wrote. “Through my foundation, my philanthropic activities extend to all of the cities where I have played for: Utah, Portland, New York, and Boston.” The school would offer a syllabus that highlights reading, writing, math and science skills with an emphasis on physical, emotional and mental health education. It would embed “rich sports and arts activities in students’ daily schedule.” Kanter would not be the first NBA player to open a school. Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James gained recognition for opening the I Promise School in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. James’ school opened in 2018 as an elementary school to serve at-risk children. He has also faced challenges beyond the court. As a native of Turkey, Kanter missed a game last year in Toronto shortly after joining the Portland Trailblazers because he felt like his life might be in danger if he left the United States. As a result of his criticism of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Kanter had been labeled a terrorist by his native country. His passport was revoked and Turkey reportedly issued a warrant for his arrest with Interpol......»»
