LOS ANGELES---"Well, let's see, I was there (in Manila) in '62 because '62 was when I came to America to attend the Oscars," Rita Moreno began when we asked her recently how the late great Filipino designer Pitoy Moreno created the gold and black gown that she originally wore when she won the Academy best supporting actress for "West Side Story." The fabulous member of EGOT---that elite group of only 12 talents who have won all four major American entertainment awards---Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony---wore Pitoy's dress again to the Academy Awards last March. That Rita looked stunning on the red carpet in a gown she wore to the Oscars more than half a century ago---56 years, to be...Keep on reading: Why Rita Moreno chose to wear her Pitoy gown at the Oscars again.....»»

Queen Bomber Alvarez seals swan song with MVP award

Shola Alvarez sealed her swan song with Jose Rizal University by bagging the Most Valuable Player award in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition. In her fifth year with the Lady Bombers, Alvarez led the team to a historic first-ever Final Four appearance. Though JRU short against a well-experienced and grizzled veteran-laden defending champion Arellano University in the semis, Alvarez’s effort brought the once cellar-dwelling squad into an unchartered territory. The Queen Bomber averaged 21.3 points per game during the elimination round and she also led the team in floor defense with her digs and reception. “Isa siya sa nasa top sa stats and very deserving siya roon sa MVP,” said JRU coach Mia Tioseco. “Sobrang proud kami sa kanya dahil dumating siya sa amin after five minutes ayaw na mag-jog kasi hinihingal na, hinihika. Now look where she is right now, as one of the top players sa NCAA. So we’re really proud of her.” Alvarez is set to receive her award on Friday before the women’s Finals between Arellano U and San Beda College at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Jovielyn Prado of the Lady Chiefs was named 1st Best Outside Spiker while Dolly Versoza of JRU pocketed the 2nd Best Outside Spiker award. Wrapping up the women’s awardees were Lourdes Clemente of University of Perpetual Help (1st Best Middle Blocker), Joyce Sta. Rita (2nd Best Middle Blocker), Alyssa Eroa (Best Libero) and Vira Guillema (Best Setter) of San Sebastian College and Regine Arocha (Best Opposite Hitter) of Arellano U. Lady Chiefs freshman Necole Ebuen was named Rookie of the Year. In men’s division, Jobert Almodiel of Perpetual scooped three awards including the Rookie of the Year and MVP recognitions. Almodiel, also the 1st Best Outside Hitter, led the Altas to an elimination round sweep to advance outright into the best-of-three Finals against the Chiefs. Christian Dela Paz of Arellano U took the 2nd Best Outside Spiker award while teammate Kevin Liberato got 1st Best Middle Blocker diadem. Perpetual Help’s Jack Kalingking (Best Libero) and Warren Catipay (Best Setter) and San Beda’s Limuel Patenio (2nd Best Middle Blocker) and Mark Enciso (Best Opposite Hitter) round up the list of awardees. Kirth Rosos of defending juniors champion Perpetual earned the MVP honor while teammate Noel Kampton bagged the 1st Best Open Spiker. Rounding up the awardees were Juvic Colonia (2nd Best Outside Spiker) of Lyceum, Raliuz Cantos (1st Best Middle Blocker) and Arnel Aguilar (Rookie of the Year) of CSB-LSGH, Gideon Guadalupe (2nd Best Middle Blocker) of Arellano U, Letran’s Raxel Catris (Best Libero) and John Paulo Lorenzo (Best Opposite Spiker) and Michael Imperial (Best Setter) of Emilio Aguinaldo College.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

San Sebastian College wraps 4th straight win in 61 minutes

Games Monday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 8:00 a.m. –- Letran vs EAC (jrs) 9:30 a.m. –- Letran vs. EAC (m) 11:00 a.m. –- Letran vs. EAC (w) 12:30 p.m. –- CSB vs. AU (w) 2:00 p.m. –- CSB vs. AU (m) 3:30 p.m. –- CSB-LSGH vs. AU (jrs)   San Sebastian College needed only 61 minutes to claim its fourth straight win at the expense of the hapless Lyceum of the Philippines University, 25-23, 25-6, 25-14, Sunday to move up to solo third spot in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition. Nika Dalisay had a game-high 16 points for the Lady Stags’ walk in the park win at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. SSC-R improved to a 5-2 win-loss slate behind unbeaten Final Four-bound defending champion Arellano University (7-0) and San Beda College (6-1).       The victory also pushed the Lady Stags closer to one of the last three remaining Final Four berths. Dalisay smacked 12 spikes and scored four from the service line while Dangie Encarnacion and skipper Joyce Sta. Rita finished with 10 markers each for the Recto-based squad, which will close their elims campaign with games against the Lady Red Spikers on Tuesday and a Finals rematch with the Lady Chiefs on Thursday. Julie Tiangco added nine markers with eight coming off service aces for the Lady Stags, who had 18 service winners while pounding the Lady Pirates with 33 attack points. LPU gave SSC-R a scare in the opening set, saving five set points to cut their 18-24 deficit to just a single point before Encarnacion foiled the Lady Pirates comeback with a closing hit. But it proved to be the Intramuros-based squad’s last hurrah in the match as LPU absorbed their fourth straight defeat for a 1-6 mark. Bien Juanillo had eight points while Christine Miralles finished with six for LPU. Meanwhile, the Pirates outlasted the Stags in a come-from-behind 24-26, 20-25, 26-24, 25-20, 15-13, win to tie their victim at 2-5 slate in men’s division.  In juniors play, the Junior Pirates scored their second in six outings with a 25-15, 20-25, 25-14, 25-20, win over the winless Staglets.     ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

SSC-R cruises to third straight win, climbs to a share of third spot

Games Friday: (FilOil Flying V Centre, San Juan) 8:00 a.m. –- Arellano U vs San Beda (jrs) 9:30 a.m. –- Arellano U vs. San Beda (m) 11:00 a.m. –- Arellano U vs. San Beda (w)   San Sebastian College fueled its Final Four hopes with its third straight win in a cakewalk, 25-9, 25-22, 25-18 crushing of Letran Thursday in the 93rd NCAA women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Stags moved up to a tie with idle University of Perpetual Help at third to fourth spots with their fourth win in six games that put SSC-R on the right track of occupying a spot in the semifinals. “Nasa within firing range pa rin dun sa semis. Nakakatuwa sila ngayon kasi wala masyadong errors,” said SSC-R coach Roger Gorayeb. “At least ‘yung laro na aking sinasabi nagagawa naman nila.” Joyce Sta. Rita, who came fresh from a career-high 28-point explosion Tuesday against Mapua, scored 18 points in an all-around offensive performance that saw her unleash 10 kills, post five kill blocks and pick a couple of service aces for the Lady Stags. Nikka Dalisay added 12 points while Daurene Santos had 11 markers for SSC-R, which still has Lyceum of the Philippines and unbeaten teams San Beda College and Arellano University in its list of assignments. Letran absorbed its second straight defeat to slide back at 2-4 card. Kathleen Barrinuevo and Jaymeleene Parin finished with six points each for the Intramuros-based squad, who sufferedanother sorry loss after a five-set setback to the Lady Red Spikers last Monday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
