Jaycee Marcelino nabs first NCAA 94 Player of the Week honors

Jaycee Marcelino would be the last person to go down without a fight. With EAC threatening for an upset against the powerhouse Lyceum squad, last season’s Rookie of the Year took it upon himself to avert a meltdown, going down to work in the fourth quarter as he racked 13 of his career-best 24 points in the Pirates’ 106-97 win over the Generals on Friday. “Ayaw ko matalo eh kaya pinag-pursigihan kong magtrabaho sa court para maibalik namin ang lamang namin at manalo kami,” he said, while also collecting eight rebounds, five steals, and two rebounds in the conquest. With those efforts, Marcelino has been cited as the first recipient of the Chooks-to-Go NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week this NCAA Season 94. Not only did the 20-year-old guard average 18.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 3.5 steals in the opening week, but he was also key in leading Lyceum to an unbeaten 2-0 record to gain early leadership this season. Marcelino was as stupendous back in opening weekend, unloading 13 points, five rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the Pirates’ 85-80 win against San Sebastian on Saturday as he perfectly complimented the 20-20 game of Cameroonian center Mike Nzeusseu. He bested fellow Pirate CJ Perez, Perpetual’s Edgar Charcos, Mapua’s Laurenz Victoria, San Beda’s Robert Bolick, and San Sebastian’s Michael Calisaan for the weekly plum awarded by scribes from print and online publications covering the beat. But despite the promising start he’s having, Marcelino knows better not to be satisfied as he expects another tough season ahead for Lyceum. “Yung mga ganitong laro, challenge ito sa amin para alam na namin ang dapat naming gawin pag ganito ulit ang nangyari,” he said......»»

NCAA: Two games in, Edgar Charcos already making waves for Perps

It seems that Edgar Charcos is already enjoying his stay in the NCAA. For his debut donning the Perpetual Altas uniform, he has already made noise as the scoring guard for Coach Frankie Lim's offense. And two games in, it seems the team is trying to brand themselves as no pushovers. Perpetual had taken two-time defending champion San Beda to the limit, and could have tied the game if it were not for the heroics of Robert Bolick on the defensive end. In that game, Charcos led the team in scoring with 14 markers. The Altas had scored a big win, their first of the season over revamped Letran, 78-75. And if it were not for the former UE Red Warrior's career-high 27 points, Perps may have already sunk to a 0-2 start. Charcos could have had more if he wasn’t saddled with four fouls in the first half where he scored 21, leading him to miss the entire third period altogether. "Charcos had a good game but he had four fouls. Masyado siya naging agresibo kanina," coach Frankie Lim said of his player's game. In facing Letran, he faced his teammate of two years in Recto, Bonbon Batiller, and of course, the two had some friendly banter. "Siguro challenge yun sa akin kasi alam niya rin yung laro ko, nagsama kami. Kaya ayun, hindi ko pinansin mga sinasabi niya, focused pa rin," Charcos said after the game. "Hindi naman ako inaasar, sinasabihan lang na 'dahan-dahan' ka lang. May plano talaga si coach na tumakbo ako so ayun." As for playing under Lim, who is returning from a seven-year coaching hiatus, the 5'8”guard beamed and praised his new mentor. "Sobrang galing niya mag-motivate, lahat parang tinuturo isa-isa, hindi yung kani-kaniya kami. Andyan siya lagi pag may problema kami. May mga problema kami, sinasabihan niya kami." In his first two games, Lim had already entrusted with him a major role in the offense, something Charcos could not pass up, and does his best to repay the trust given to him. "Di ko na inisip siguro [ang responsibilidad] kasi kailangan talaga mag-step up. Tulungan lang kami. Siguro challenge sa sarili ko. Syempre new school ko to, lakasan lang ng loob. Gawin mo ang pinapagawa niya sa akin." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Suns Booker signs 5-year, $158 million deal

By Bob Baum, Associated Press PHOENIX (AP) — Devin Booker, the high-scoring guard at the heart of Phoenix’s rebuilding plans, has signed a five-year, $158 million maximum contract with the Suns. Booker, 21, tweeted a photo of himself smiling as he signed the contract Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time), moments before the Suns announced the deal, which makes him the highest-paid player in the franchise’s history. I am humbled & honored to commit to the Suns organization long term. I loved calling Phoenix home the last 3 seasons as this team & community are special to me. Thank you to the Suns for drafting me and believing in me. I look forward to the future & pursuing a title as a Sun. pic.twitter.com/AHRaraPww6 — Devin Booker (@DevinBook) July 8, 2018 The 13th overall pick in the 2015 draft out of Kentucky, Booker has averaged 19.8 points per game in his three NBA seasons. He averaged 24.9 points last season, shooting 38 percent from three-point range. He won the NBA three-point contest at All-Star weekend in February. Booker set a franchise record by scoring 70 points in a game at Boston on March 24, 2017, just the sixth player in NBA history to score that many. “I am humbled & honored to commit to the Suns organization long term,” he wrote. “I loved calling Phoenix home the last 3 seasons as this team & community are special to me. Thank you to the Suns for drafting me and believing in me. I look forward to the future & pursuing a title as a Sun.” The announced signing came five days after Booker and his agent met with Suns owner Robert Sarver, general manager Ryan McDonough and vice president of basketball operations James Jones in Los Angeles to discuss the contract. The contract takes effect in the 2019-20 season. Signed, sealed... BOOKED. 🤝#Max pic.twitter.com/Qrr8eeseZM — Phoenix Suns (@Suns) July 8, 2018 “‘Book’ has been a pillar for the Suns franchise ever since he arrived in Phoenix in 2015,” McDonough said in a news release announcing the signing. “Devin and the team both wanted to extend this agreement with the club as long as we possibly could. This agreement reflects a commitment from both parties to the Phoenix community, the state of Arizona and Suns fans worldwide.” Booker topped 4,000 career points last March 2 (Mar. 3, PHL time), becoming the third-youngest player to reach that milestone. Only LeBron James and Kevin Durant were younger. But while Booker has amassed big individual statistics, there has been little team success. The Suns have missed the playoffs the last eight seasons and had the worst record in the NBA last season at 21-61. After the season, Booker said his days of missing the playoffs were over. That may be a bit optimistic, but the team added to its talented core of young players big-time when it selected center Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Ayton and fellow first-rounder Mikal Bridges join Booker and Josh Jackson as the talented young core of the team under new coach Igor Kokoskov. Booker will be 26, and presumably approaching his prime, when the new contract expires......»»

Bolick rues San Beda’s five measly assists in opening win

San Beda may have claimed the opening day victory against Perpetual Help, 67-65, in the NCAA Season 94 men's basketball tournament, but main man Robert Bolick wasn't happy with how the Red Lions got the win. Bolick, who was vital in the Red Lions' closeout of the Altas, took a shot at himself and at the team with how they had just five assists throughout the game. "Assists are a part of playmaking and I didn't do a good job, maybe coach Boyet [Fernandez] will let me see the tapes," said Bolick Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena. "We had five assists compared to 19, we should've lost the game."

NCAA: Bolick on San Beda’s first W: ‘We should’ve lost that game’

San Beda University passed the tough test put up by University of Perpetual Help to open the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Nursing a two-point lead with nine ticks to go on the clock, Robert Bolick intercepted Edgar Charcos’ pass that was intended for Prince Eze. Perps had a great shot at a game-tying, or even game-winning, basket. .@BabesBolick wasn’t letting them get a shot off, however, and ensured the win for San Beda. #NCAASeason94 #GalingNCAA pic.twitter.com/nHxRpLOEnh — Normie Riego (@riegogogo) Hulyo 7, 2018 That sealed the deal in the Red Lions’ 67-65 squeaker of a first win. At the end of it all, though, Bolick admitted that he and the rest of his teammates could play a lot better. “We didn’t play as a team. Credit to their defense because they played really great today,” he told reporters post-game. Indeed, the Altas clamped down on the Red Lions who only converted 21 of 58 attempts while also botching 10 free throws. The stifling defense also slowed down San Beda’s trademark ball movement as they only had five assists as a team. “Yung assists, five compared to 19. We should’ve lost that game,” Bolick said. He then continued, “We have to do better especially sa assists category. Sakin, I was looking for my shots too much.” For reference, Perpetual point guard Edgar Charcos had seven assists by his lonesome. Red Lions’ mentor Boyet Fernandez could only agree with his top gun. As he put it, “Sabi nga ni Robert, yung assist department, malaki disparity. We’ll prepare ourselves for that ngayong tapos na ‘tong first game, magse-settle down na kami.” Without a doubt, the defending champions were pushed to the limit by upstart Perps. But in the end, their championship poise proved to be the difference once more – with Bolick making the win-sealing steal. “Alam niyo namang he’s my go-to-guy for everything. Robert did a good job for us,” Fernandez said. It could only also help if the King Lion finally returns to full strength. “Give me time. I’m still recovering from my injury,” he said, referring to the hamstring injury that has been slowing him down since the start of the year. He then continued, making a promise, “I’ll get there.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

NCAA: Coach Frankie on Perps’ loss San Beda: ‘They have to admit, kinabahan sila’

University of Perpetual Help was a good pass and a good shot away from taking down defending champion San Beda University. Still threatening at 65-67 with 9.8 ticks to go, the Altas sent Red Lion Joe Presbitero to the stripe. Presbitero muffed on both of his free throws and Perps had a shot at a game-tying, or even game-winning basket, but Edgar Charcos’ pass to Prince Eze was intercepted by Robert Bolick. Not long after, San Beda’s 67-65 squeaker of a win was cemented. While, of course, a win would have been better, new Perpetual mentor Frankie Lim still only had good words to say about their effort. “It could’ve been better if we won, but we were there. I felt we had full control of the game,” he told reporters post-game. He then continued, “’Di sila lumayo and their biggest lead was six points. It went down to our last play and we threw the ball (away). Sh*t happens. Ganun talaga.” Lim then went on to say that he could not ask for more from his boys – especially as it’s just his first year on the job and he has more first-year players than veterans. “We had a good stop and outlet kami kay Charcos, but Charcos lost the ball. What can I do? Wala ka nang magagawa dun,” he said. Instead, the multi-titled mentor said he prefers to focus on how the Altas pushed the Red Lions to the limit. As he put it, “I’d rather look at all the positives. Minsan nga, nagugulat ako with the way we executed, the way we took our shots.” He then continued, “Tsaka yung tapang, kitang-kita ko, matapang ang mga bata ko. I’m proud of them.” And with how they played, Lim said Perps has done nothing but send a statement – right at dynastic San Beda, no less. “They have to admit, kinabahan sila,” he candidly remarked. Even though they fell short of getting their first win, Lim said that the ending is only a morale-booster for Perpetual. “Sabi ko sa kanila, you can go out of this place with their heads held up high and nothing to be ashamed of. Ang kalaban namin, defending champion, intact lineup, pero you gave it your all,” he shared. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Neymar leads Brazil into World Cup quarterfinals

By ROB HARRIS ,  AP Global Soccer Writer SAMARA, Russia (AP) — Neymar flaunted his flair and his theatrics with a goal and an assist Monday to lead Brazil into the quarterfinals at the World Cup with a 2-0 victory over Mexico. The world's most expensive player put Brazil in the lead after his back-heel released Willian, who then sent the ball into the penalty area. Neymar slid in to tap in the opener in the 51st minute. Neymar then showed his unselfish side, crossing for Robert Firmino to score in the 88th minute. Neymar has 11 goals and nine assists in his last 19 games for Brazil. It looked like Neymar's game — or even his World Cup — could be over with 20 minutes to go. It turned out to be pure histrionics. Writhing in agony after his right ankle was stepped on by Miguel Layun, Neymar managed to get back on his feet. But not before trying a stamp on Layun himself. Both escaped punishment. The five-time World Cup champions will next face either Japan or Belgium in their seventh straight quarterfinal match, the stage they have reached at every World Cup since 1994. Not so for the Mexicans, who have lost in the round of 16 seven straight times......»»

Ateneo tops San Beda to take Filoil Preseason crown

For the third year in a row, there has been a clean sweep of the Filoil Flying V Preseason Tournament. And just like in 2017, the 2018 edition of the tournament has seen one sweeping squad get replaced by another. Claiming control from the get-go on Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Ateneo de Manila University didn’t give any chances to now dethroned champion San Beda University for a convincing 76-62 victory. The Blue Eagles scored the first basket and seized the lead right from tip-off. “We gotta give credit to the players. We didn’t really have practices so it was all verbal,” coach Sandy Arespacochaga said post-game. Still, the Red Lions were only behind by four after the opening salvo until Ivorian reinforcement Angelo Kouame imposed his will down low and fueled Ateneo’s 26-11 rush that mounted a 45-26 lead. San Beda would not be able to threaten from that point. With that, the UAAP champions proved that they were the top team in the tournament. Kouame finished with 15 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks en route to being hailed as the Tournament MVP. “We’re very happy for him individually. We’d like to see him continue to improve,” Arespacochaga said. Fellow Mythical team member Thirdy Ravena contributed seven points, two rebounds, and two assists while Jolo Mendoza and Raffy Verano also added nine markers each. Ateneo’s sweep of the 2018 Filoil Preseason follows San Beda’s sweep of the 2017 Filoil Preseason which itself followed De La Salle University’s sweep of the 2016 Filoil Preseason. Last year, the Red Lions dethroned the Green Archers en route to a clean sweep. San Beda got a taste of its own medicine this time around, falling victim to a Blue Eagle side that did not lose in 11 games. Javee Mocon showed the way for them with a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double. Donald Tankoua also had 13 markers and five boards. Robert Bolick was scoreless in 10 minutes of play, but did not play much of the second half after suffering an apparent ankle injury in the second quarter. In the battle for third, Far Eastern University made quick work of College of St. Benilde, 78-58. No Tamaraw was in double-digits, but they counted seven players who contributed somewhere between six to nine points in the scoring column. For the Blazers, Kendrix Belgica and Robbie Nayve topped the scoring column with 12 points apiece. However, they elected not to play top guns Justin Gutang and Clement Leutcheu to rest them for the looming NCAA season.
