UAAP Season 81: Lady Tams not taking Lady Bulldogs lightly

Last year’s runner-up Far Eastern University easily has the advantage in terms of experience against a very young and rebuilding National University team. But the Lady Tamaraws are still wary of the Lady Bulldogs’ bite when they meet on Saturday in the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament. “Wala ‘yan sa mindset namin. Same approach pa rin ang gagawin namin,” said FEU veteran Celine Domingo, who will lead the Lady Tams in their 4:00 p.m. clash with the Lady Bulldogs. “Hindi naman porke’t puro rookies ang NU bababa na namin ang level ng game namin. Siyempre respect na rin ‘yun and siyempre bilog ang bola maraming pwedeng mangyari,” added last year’s Best Blocker award winner. The match will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. Domingo is expected to step up her game as well as other veterans Jerrili Malabanan, Heather Guino-o, Jeanette Villareal and setter Kyle Negrito after the exit of Bernadeth Pons and the absence of injured Chin-Chin Basas. The Lady Bulldogs, who finished fourth last year, are rebuilding their foundations after the departure of Season 80 Most Valuable Player Jaja Santiago, Aiko Urdas and libero Gayle Valdez. NU is under a different system with new head coach Norman Miguel, who replaced Babes Castillo last December. The Lady Bulldogs’ character will be tested with only a handful of veterans after playmaker Jasmine Nabor, Jorelle Singh and Roma Doromal decided to sit out the season while middle blocker Risa Sato was deemed ineligible to play (academic problems). The leadership role is now at the hands of remaining veterans Audrey Paran, Roselyn Doria and Joni Chavez Rookies Princess Robles, Ivy Lacsina, setter Joyme Cagande and libero Jennifer Nierva, who are all part of NU’s four-peat girls volleyball team, will get their baptism of fire.   ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 94: Lady Chiefs complete three-peat

Three-peat. Arellano University extended its reign to three straight years after the Lady Chiefs completed a dramatic best-of-three series comeback with a 22-25, 25-15, 25-18, 25-18, win over University of Perpetual Help Tuesday in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball Finals decider at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Chiefs recovered from an 11-13 deficit in the fourth set with a blistering rally to claim their fourth title in five years and third in a row against the last team to mark a three-peat five seasons ago.          Arellano U squandered an 8-3 lead in the fourth set but regrouped just in time to score 11 straight points for a 22-13 lead over the shocked Lady Altas. Perpetual tried to fight back but an overcooked serve by Jenny Gaviola ended the Lady Altas’ failed mission to bring the title back to Las Pinas. "Kung titingnan natin yung Perpetual talagang mataas ang respeto ko sa kanila. Talagang sinukat nila kami, pinilit nilang ilabas ang dapat naming ilabas eh so nagpapasalamat kami doon. 'Yun talo namin sa kanila noong Game 1 malaking bagay talaga 'yun," said Arellano U head coach Obet Javier. "Dahil doon natuto kaming bumangon.Na-realize namin ang dapat naming gawin."     The Lady Chiefs also spoiled Perpetual's attempt of a triple crown after its men's and juniors teams ruled their respective divisions.  Back-to-back Finals Most Valuable Player Regine Arocha finished with game-high 16 points including five aces while adding 11 excellent receptions for Arellano U. Princess Bello got 10 markers while Season MVP Necole Ebuen and Carla Donato delivered 11 points each for the Lady Chiefs, who received 36 points off Perpetual's errors.     Perpetual drew first blood two weeks ago in a shocking 21-25, 25-17, 25-21, 25-20, win before Arellano U forced a decider with a 23-25, 25-9, 25-18, 22-25, 15-12, victory in Game 2.  The Lady Chiefs started out firing on all cylinders and built a 14-7 lead in the opening frame. Arellano U held a 20-17 lead heading into the closing stretch of the first set only to see the determined Lady Altas make six unanswered points to take the driver’s seat, 23-20. An error by Shyra Umandal stopped Perpetual’s rally before Cindy Imbo put the Lady Altas at set point. Arellano U saved a set point before Gaviola sealed the frame.  The Lady Chiefs dominated the second and third sets.  Graduating hitter Cindy Imbo posted 12 points - all from kills - and added 13 digs in her swan song while Umandal and Gaviola scored 10 markers eac.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Thai princess disqualified from list of candidates for PM

BANGKOK, Thailand --- Thai Princess Ubolratana was on Monday formally disqualified for running for prime minister, ending her brief and ill-fated political union with a party allied to the powerful Shinawatra clan, just days after a stern royal command rebuking her candidacy was issued by her brother, the king. Uncertainty and conjecture have coursed through Thailand since Friday when the Thai Raksa Chart party made the explosive announcement of Princess Ubolratana, King Maha Vajiralongkorn's elder sister, as their candidate for premier after the March 24 election.
