The Angels will parade in the tournament, that will open on May 6, a mix of commercial league veterans and former college stars under head coach Jerry Yee. “Magkakakilala naman ‘yung ilan. So far nagi-ensayo tayo,” said Yee. “So far maganda ang ipinapakita natin so smooth naman ang transition nila defense to offense so polishing na lang talaga.” Former De La Salle University standouts skipper Paneng Mercado, Wensh Tiu, Cienne Cruz and seasoned setter Chie Saet will team up with College of St. Benilde products Rachel Austero, Ranya Musa, Djanel Cheng and Rica Enclona, ex-Pocari Sweat hitter Cai Nepomuceno and Alyssa Layug of Technological Institute of the Philippines.   Beefing up the Petro Gazz rosters are a pair of European imports in Kadi Kullerkannm of Estonia and Anastasia Trach of Ukraine. Set to join the squad are Mary Anne Mendrez of University of the East and another UAAP player. Mendrez according to team manager Camille Cruz has committed with Petro Gazz but will only join the Angels after the 80th UAAP season. “We like to be as ready as we can be. Of course, siyempre ang other teams nag-eensayo din yan,” said Yee, whose reinforcements are set to arrive . “We heard na gabi-gabi rin nage-ensayo rin sila, nagkakaubusan na rin ng tune up games ngayon dahil nadyan na rin ang yayaan. Some teams, ang lineup nila loaded din so yun ang mga challenges natin.” Petro Gazz will test their mettle against established teams like defending champion Pocari Sweat, the Alyssa Valdez-led Creamline and Perlas.    “Sa atin kung no ang meron sa ating piyesa we’ll work with that,” Yee said. “Every night wala namang mintis ang practice.”     ---           Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Lawyer tells Roque: Don’t be ‘an accomplice in killing of peace talks’

  Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque should not let himself be used as an "accomplice to kill the peace negotiations" for making wrong pronouncements about the peace talks between the government and communist rebels, a lawyer said on Friday.   Atty. Rachel Pastores, managing counsel of the Public Interest Law Center, chided Roque for saying that arrested National Democratic Front (NDF) consultant Rafael "Ka Raffy" Baylosis was no longer covered under the Joint Agreement on Safety and Immunity Guarantees (Jasig) because the peace talks were already terminated.   "Obviously Mr. Harry Roque is innocent or ignorant of the agreements made during the peace nego...Keep on reading: Lawyer tells Roque: Don’t be ‘an accomplice in killing of peace talks’.....»»

NO SWEEP: CSB stuns Arellano U

Games Tuesday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 8:00 a.m. –- San Beda vs SSC-R (jrs) 9:30 a.m. –- San Beda vs. SSC-R (m) 11:00 a.m. –- San Beda vs. SSC-R (w) 12:30 p.m. –- Mapua vs. Perpetual (w) 2:00 p.m. –- Mapua vs. Perpetual (m)   No sweep. College of St. Benilde shocked repeat-seeking Arellano University in a huge morale-boosting upset win, 25-21, 25-20, 19-25, 25-12, to remain on the right track in the race for the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball tournament Final Four at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Blazers relied on their solid net defense and heavy serves to claim their fourth win in seven outings while putting a blemish on the semis-bound Lady Chiefs’ record after eight games. The win denied Arellano U of a chance to complete an elimination round sweep and an outright best-of-three Finals berth. This is the first time in three years that the league will play a Final Four format after San Sebastian College swept the elims in Seasons 91 and 92 that forced a stepladder semis. CSB’s victory, a sweet revenge on the same team that dethroned the Lady Blazers in Season 92 stepladder semis, also snapped Arellano U’s 19-game winning streak that started last season. “Sabi ko nga sa preparation namin, itong Arellano maghahabol ng sweep and at the same time sila ang defending champion so mayroon talagang mag-iiba ang identity nila pagdating sa laro,” said CSB interim coach Arnold Laniog. “Pero once na magawa namin na mag-start kami ng strong, mag-start kami ng maganda, possible na pwedeng bumaligtad ang result ng game. Which is nangyari nga sa first set. Although lumalamang sila ng malaki pero momentum-wise, nakikita ko sa mga players ko na naka-stick sila sa kung ano ang gusto naming mangyari as a team.”     Graduating middle blocker Ranya Musa finished with 17 points highlighted by five kill blocks while Rachel Austero nailed 11 kills with two kill blocks and two aces for 15 markers for the Taft-based squad. Marites Pablo scored 13 points and added 13 excellent receptions while fellow National University transferee Klarisa Abriam finished with 13 markers.   CSB played catchup in the opening set and were behind 17-20 before stunning Arellano with a closing 8-1 blitz sealed by a Felicia Cui service ace to steal the frame. With momentum on their side, the Lady Blazers dictated the tempo in the second frame before a hiccup in the third. Smelling blood, CSB built a 20-10 gap capped by back-to-back aces by Austero. Arellano U surrendered the match with back-to-back miscues sealed by an attack error by skipper Mary Anne Esguerra, whose spike sailed long. Jovielyn Prado had 14 points while Necole Ebuen got 12 for the Lady Chiefs.      --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Alvarez carries JRU back in win column, sweeps CSB

Games Thursday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 9:30 a.m. –- EAC vs. Mapua (m) 11:00 a.m. –- EAC vs. Mapua (w) 12:30 p.m. –- Letran vs. San Sebastian (w) 2:00 p.m. –- Letran vs. San Sebastian (m) 3:30 p.m. –- Letran vs. San Sebastian (jrs)   Shola Alvarez scattered 21 points to fuel Jose Rizal University’s Final Four bid as the Lady Bombers shocked College of St. Benilde with a rousing 25-21, 25-22, 25-21, sweep in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Wednesday.   The graduating hitter waxed-hot for JRU, hitting 20 of her points off attacks while anchoring the Lady Bombers' solid floor defense with 13 digs and eight excellent receptions.   JRU snapped a two-game skid to move improve to 3-3 win-loss record tied with its victim with three more games remaining in the elimination round. Dolly Versoza scored 16 points while Karen Montojo added six for the Kalentong-based squad. Despite their return in the win column, Lady Bombers head coach Mia Tioseco is still looking for consistency and maturity from her girls as they approach the crucial stretch of the competition. "I think lack of confidence and composure. Doon kami nadadale lagi. ‘Yung composure namin inside the court," said Tioseco, recalling the problems they encountered in consecutive four-set losses against unbeaten Arellano University and Perpetual Help. "Yung skills na-acquire na nila. It's all about gagamitin nila during the game. Kapag nawalan ng composure, naunahan ng takot, nakakalimutan yung skills. Nasa kanila naman na eh. Lahat naman nandiyan na eh, except that kailangang magamit ng tama," she added. The Lady Blazers gave away 27 points off their errors and were unable to put a solid defense at the net as they allowed JRU hitters to score 43 kills. Ranya Musa scored 12 while Rachel Austero had 10 for CSB. In men’s play, the Blazers defused the winless Bombers, 25-16, 25-17, 25-20, for a 5-1 mark.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
