UAAP 82: Abando announces arrival in UST s takedown of UE

Recruits and returnees alike came to play for University of Sto. Tomas as they came out on top of fellow upstart University of the East, 95-82, in the first game day of the UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament, Wednesday at Araneta Coliseum. First-year player Rhenz Abando made quite the first impression with 22 points built on five triples, CJ Cansino and Brent Paraiso made quite the return, and the undersized Growling Tigers made quite the tournament debut with a convincing victory versus the Red Warriors even after they unleashed 6-foot-8 Alex Diakhite. Coach Aldin's wards were way ahead by 23 in the final frame, but UE rose up for a rally behind prized rookie Harvey Pagsanjan and Rey Suerte, nearing to just 10, 80-90, inside the last two minutes. It was at that point, however, that Mark Nonoy, another one of UST's ready rookies, hit a booming triple to put his side back up, 93-80. Not long after, they were celebrating a well-earned win to begin their quest for a return to the Final Four. In the end, that three was Nonoy's only points in the game to go along with eight rebounds. Cansino and Paraiso also brought big-time contributions with the former finishing with nine points, eight rebounds, and five assists in his first game back from an ACL injury and the latter ending with 10 markers and seven boards in his first game back since transferring from De La Salle University. Beninese Soulemane Chabi Yo also added a 19-point, 12-rebound double-double all while doing his best to hold his own against the bigger Diakhite. UE's Senegalese powerhouse posted a 20-point, 21-rebound double-double while Cebuano transferee Suerte chimed in 23 markers, eight boards, four assists, and two steals and Hope Christian High School standout Pagsanjan chipped in 15 points of his own.

San Beda, La Salle score convincing victories in Filoil Preseason

San Beda University and De La Salle University both ended their elimination round assignments in the 2019 Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament on the right note with separate convincing victories, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Red Lions battled back from 10 points down to frustrate University of Sto. Tomas, 75-73. James Canlas fronted the rally and fired 21 points on top of three assists and two rebounds for the three-time NCAA champions who finished off an elims sweep with their seventh win in a row.

With the win, San Beda cemented its place as the top-seed in Group A. Meanwhile, the Green Archers clinched Group A's second-seed with a well-earned 84-70 win at the expense of San Sebastian College-Recoletos.

UST bows out of contention in PBA D-League care of FamilyMart-Enderun

Also-ran FamilyMart-Enderun eliminated Ironcon-UST with a huge 81-74 win, Thursday in the 2019 PBA D-League at JCSGO Gym in Cubao. Fighting for pride, the Titans weathered a huge fourth quarter attack from the Growling Tigers to end their maiden campaign on a high note and finish with a 2-7 slate. "They want to prove something and they accepted their roles for the good of the team," said coach Pipo Noundou. Valandre Chauca carried FamilyMart-Enderun with 31 points on a 5-of-9 shooting from beyond the arc, alongside five rebounds and two assists, while Marvin Hayes just almost tallied a triple-double with his 18 points, 12 boards, and seven assists. The Titans jumped on the Growling Tigers, taking a 25-11 first quarter lead and extending it to 19 numerous times in the third frame. But Ironcon-UST rallied back behind Soulemane Chabi Yo, slicing the deficit to as low as four, 68-7, with 4:57 left. That was when FamilyMart-Enderun went to its starters as it respinded with an 8-0 spurt to grab an 80-68 advantage courtesy of a Hayes lay-up with 1:09 remaining. The Growling Tigers' shock loss sent them out of the playoffs and gifted St. Clare College-Virtual Reality the no. 2 seed, which comes with a twice-to-beat advantage, in the Aspirants Group. Che'Lu Bar and Grill also booked the no. 4 seat in the process. Chabi Yo's effort of 25 points, 14 rebounds, and three blocks went down the drain as Ironcon-UST bowed out of the tourney. Mark Nonoy got 18 points, four assists, and three boards as the Growling Tigers finished sixth due to owning the inferior quotient in the five-way tie. Meanwhile, Valencia City Bukidnon-San Sebastian locked up the top seed in the Foundation Group with a 91-80 win over Diliman College-Gerry's Grill. JM Calma started off hot for the Golden Harvest with his 15 first half points before ending up with 26 points, 10 rebounds, and two blocks. RK Ilagan shot a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe to wind up with 23 points, six rebounds, six assists, and three steals while Allyn Bulanadi did it all to finish with 18 points, six boards, four assists, three steals, and three blocks. The win locked the Golden Harvest at no. 1 in the group as they head to the crossover quarterfinals with a twice-to-beat advantage against Che'Lu Bar and Grill on Monday.

PBA D-League: Paraiso helps UST ward off NAASCU champ St. Clare

Ironcon-UST boosted its 2019 PBA D-League playoff hopes with a cardiac 78-75 win over St. Clare College Virtual Reality Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. Dave Ando buried the go-ahead undergoal stab with 20.4 seconds remaining, before Brent Paraiso sealed the win with two free throws in the final 4.3. Junjie Hallare tried to heave a hail mary three to force overtime, but his shot went way short as time expired Paraiso scored 14 points, five rebounds, and four assists for Ironcon-UST, while Mark Nonoy and Rhenz Abando chipped in 13 points in the victory. "We just executed the game plan and the players did not deviate from the game plan kasi yun yung tendency ng mga bata. They just executed," said coach Aldin Ayo. Ando and Renzo Subido also combined for 20 to improve the Growling Tigers' slate to a 6-2 record in the Aspirants Group. They missed the services Beninese forward Soulemane Chabi Yo, who is down with a flu. Ironcon-UST survived a late spurt from Irven Palencia, who scored all of his eight points as St. Clare rallied back from a 73-67 deficit. Joshua Fontanilla top-scored for St. Clare (5-3) with 19 points, as Rojay Santos got 16 points built on five triples. Meanwhile, Valencia City Bukidnon-San Sebastian remained in the hunt for the Foundation Group top spot, dismantling CD14 Designs-Trinity, 105-82. Emmanuel Bonleon stepped up for the Golden Harvest, uncorking 20 of his 23 points in the first half as his side took the 36-23 lead at the end of the first period. Allyn Bulanadi was at his lethal self with a team-high 28 points, alongside six rebounds, three steals, and two assists, while JM Calma had a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds. It was the Golden Harvest's fourth straight win and pulled them once again on level with CEU at the no. 1 spot in the group at 7-1. Clark Derige paced the winless CD14 Designs-Trinity (0-9) with 22 points and five rebounds. In the day's other game, FamilyMart-Enderun finally broke through, drubbing AMA Online Education, 116-94.

CheLu fends off Ironcon-UST, fans hopes for PBA D-League playoffs

Che'Lu Bar and Grill kept its playoff hopes burning, turning back Ironcon-UST, 92-80, Monday in the 2019 PBA D-League at JCSGO Gym in Cubao. Rey Suerte collected 27 points, punctuating the killer 19-0 fourth quarter stretch for the Revellers with the last eight points that flipped a tight 70-66 lead to a commanding 89-66 advantage with 3:07 left on the clock. Gab Dagangon was as solid in his debut with 17 points and three rebounds, while Alfred Batino had 14 points and six boards in the Che'Lu win. "This is a must win," said coach Stevenson Tiu. "Sabi ko sa players, if we lose today, parang scrimmage na lang yung last two games. If you still want to play in the playoffs, you have to play hard today." The victory allowed the Revellers to stay in the hunt for a spot in the Aspirants Group top four at 4-3, while dealing the Growling Tigers their second defeat in their last three games to fall to 5-2. It was a sorry defeat for Ironcon-UST, which crawled back from an 18-point deficit, 65-47 and got to within two, 65-63 in the waning moments of the third frame. That run, however, fell flat in the end as Batino and Suerte delivered the daggers in the payoff period. Sherwin Concepcion fired 24 points on a 4-of-8 shooting from threes to lead Ironcon-UST, which squandered a chance to seal off a playoff seat.

UP, UE share 2019 s king of recruiting crown

Who was our King of Recruiting in 2018? Find out here. --- Last season, the University of the Philippines, at long last, broke through in the UAAP. Behind the leadership of Paul Desiderio and key contributions from Season MVP Bright Akhuetie and Mythical selection Juan Gomez de Liano, the Fighting Maroons made their first Final Four since 1997 and first Finals in 32 years. Now, even without the iconic Desiderio, State U is nothing but confident it could build on its breakthrough. The reason? Well, because two of the brightest young stars in Kobe Paras and Ricci Rivero are now orbiting Diliman. Paras has all the physical tools to take any league by storm and now in maroon and green, he is out to continue the legacy of his father Benjie who delivered the school’s first and only championship. Meanwhile, the Euro-stepping Rivero already knows a thing or two about taking the UAAP by storm, having been chosen for the Mythical Team when he was still playing for De La Salle University in 2017. Add big man J-Boy Gob, another transferee, to that and, indeed, UP is only equipped to keep contending. On the strength of the transfers of Paras and Rivero alone, the Fighting Maroons would have been worthy of the title of 2019 King of Recruiting. Right up there with them, though, in terms of getting a big boost in the offseason is University of the East. Absent from the Final Four in the last decade, the Red Warriors will be heading into the upcoming season with a fully stocked arsenal. Now up front for them – alongside stalwart Philip Manalang, of course – will be 6-foot-9 Senegalese Adama Diakhite, three-time champion and two-time MVP in the CESAFI Rey Suerte, and college-ready Harvey Pagsanjan, the no. 7 high school player in the 2019 NBTC 24. Diakhite is a hulking presence who will prove to be a tough matchup even for the likes of reigning MVP Akhuetie and last year’s Rookie of the year Ange Kouame. Suerte, a gifted scorer from anywhere on the court, fills right into the hole left behind by scoring dynamo Alvin Pasaol while Pagsanjan can continue making all the right plays he had been doing as the longtime beacon of hope for Hope Christian High School. Also flanking them are former Ateneo de Manila University forward John Apacible, defensive stopper Neil Tolentino, Filipino-Kiwi swingman Richie Rodger, and Filipino-Australian point guard Jasper Rentoy. And with that, UP and UE will have joint custody of the crown of the 2019 King of Recruiting. They dethrone National University which claimed the crown a year ago behind a big-time recruiting class that included Ildefonso brothers Dave and Shaun, John Lloyd Clemente, and John Galinato. Just like last year, there remains no doubt that the new Fighting Maroons and Red Warriors will make their respective sides forces to reckon with come UAAP 82. Still, several squads also made it a point to be better in the offseason. In fact, the graduating players in the 2019 NBTC 24 have been spread out among eight different teams. From the 2019 NBTC 24, the annual ranking of the best high school players in the country, 14 are moving on up to the Seniors. Adamson University is the biggest winner in terms of recruits from that ranking, with three of the top 15 players now in San Marcelino. Ninth-ranked Aaron Fermin is a double-double machine in the NCAA Jrs. and is nothing but determined to realize his potential as a two-way force under multi-titled mentor Franz Pumaren. In CESAFI standout Joshua Yerro and UAAP Jrs. Mythical selection Joem Sabandal, coach Franz also has young blood to bolster the backcourt that will no longer have Koko Pingoy. The Soaring Falcons also scored four other former Baby Falcons in big man Lorenz Capulong and wings Adam and Andrey Doria and AP Manlapaz. When it comes to reaping the rewards of its high school program, though, nobody could still touch Mapua University which again got two keep its Jrs. studs in Clint Escamis and Dan Arches, both of whom made it into the top two-thirds of the 2019 NBTC 24. Escamis and Arches are offensive guards who will give much-needed firepower to a promising core comprised of fellow Mapua HS products Warren Bonifacio, Eric Jabel, Noah Lugo, and Laurenz Victoria. Also, the Cardinals are the favorites to land NCAA 94 Jrs. Finals MVP Paolo Hernandez, another Red Robin. Also bagging two prized prospects from the 2019 NBTC 24 is La Salle which is now the place where the talented tandem of Joel Cagulangan and Joshua David get to work. Cagulangan has long been a star in the making and the NCAA 94 Jrs. MVP is, without question, Taft Avenue’s point guard of the future. The even better news is that he will still have wingman David, a tried and tested glue guy, to grow with. Also set to debut for the Green Archers are Filipino-Americans Jordan Bartlett, a speedster guard; Tyrus Hill, a high-flying forward; and Kurt Lojera, a big-bodied swingman. In all, there are six graduates from the top 10 of the 2019 NBTC 24. All of them would be on different teams in the Srs. Two players from 2019 NBTC 24 are yet to commit to any school, but there is no doubt that Red Robin Hernandez and Greenie Inand Fornilos will be able additions to any collegiate team. For the second straight year, Aldin Ayo will be adding a top three recruit out of high school as incoming sophomore CJ Cansino will now join forces with another triple-doubling talent in Mark Nonoy, a rookie who plays way beyond his years. But wait, there’s more as UST also welcomes with open arms its newest foreign student-athlete in Beninese Soulemane Chabi Yo whose speed and skill will make him a problem for the other foreign student-athletes more used to being powerhouses. Sprinkle in stretch four Sherwin Concepcion as well as versatile forwards Rhenz Abando and Brent Paraiso and there’s a reason why the Growling Tigers are now very much a darkhorse contender. L-Jay Gonzales and RJ Abarrientos remain FEU’s backcourt for tomorrow, but in the meantime, the former is poised for a breakout just as the latter is poised to wrap up his K-12 schooling. Yes, Abarrientos is not yet good to go come UAAP 82, but his steady hand is still the perfect pairing for the burst of energy that is Gonzales. Make no mistake, however, the Tamaraws have gotten help in the form of 6-foot-10 Cameroonian Patrick Tchuente as well as former Baby Tams Daniel Celzo and Jack Gloria. Letran is already the biggest it has ever been up front with NCAA 94 Rookie of the Year Larry Muyang alongside Jeo Ambohot, Christian Balagasay, and Christian Fajarito. Now, the Knights have also beefed up at the wings with Allen Mina and Mark Sangalang as well as former Red Warrior and Growling Tiger Jordan Sta. Ana. LPU will have to prove it could continue contending even without NCAA 93 MVP CJ Perez, but the good news is that now backtopping Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee are former San Sebastian College-Recoletos key cogs Alvin Baetiong, Jayson David, and Renzo Navarro. That’s still a pretty solid lineup in our books. Just like last year, the now two-time UAAP champions are mostly intact, only losing team captain Anton Asistio as well as reserve guard Aaron Black. That doesn’t mean, however, that there are no new faces in Ateneo. Geo Chiu, Kai Sotto’s twin tower, decided to stay in Katipunan just as fellow ex-Blue Eaglets RV Berjay and Jason Credo are now seeing minutes in head coach Tab Baldwin’s rotation. And oh, there is a possibility that double-double machine Fornilos, who placed no. 13 in the 2019 NBTC 24, is bound to be a Blue Eaglet. Perps is nothing but determined to build on the triumphant return to the NCAA of head coach Frankie Lim and to do that, they will be leaning on former San Beda University pillar Ben Adamos as well as ex-Adamson HS workhorse Jefner Egan. Count out the Altas at your own risk. JRU is just on the first phase of a grand rebuild, but there is no doubt that things are looking up for Kalentong. In John Amores, they now have an end-to-end force who is all set to make an immediate impact as a rookie. These are the new names to watch for the teams: Baste CSB National U San Beda --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
