NCAA Season 95: Racraquin displays maturity in latest San Beda conquest

Cesca Racraquin knows too well that any team can bite back if taken lightly. So when San Beda University’s intensity dipped midway in the third set of the Lady Red Spikers’ match against San Sebastian College, she had to pull her team together and set her teammates’ minds back at the task at hand.     “Nag-relax na parang akala namin panalo na eh,” said the Season 92 Rookie of the Year and now San Beda skipper. The Lady Spikers saw its early lead in the third set evaporate and even trailed the Lady Stags by one before waking up from sudden slump with a five-point spurt to regain control of the frame on their way to a 25-13, 25-9, 25-21, win Tuesday for back-to-back wins in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition. Racraquin needed to bark at her teammates in the closing stretch of the third set to bring San Beda back to order. “Nagagalit na ako sa loob. Pinapagalitan ko na sila kasi parang yung galaw nila parang ‘OK para matapos na lang’. Hindi na aggressive katulad noong first and second sets, yun ang nangyari kaya humabol sila at nalamangan na kami,” said Racraquin, who led all scorers with 19 points off 13 kills and six aces with three excellent receptions. Her teammates responded with a five-point barrage to turn a 17-18 deficit in the third to a 22-18 lead. “Pinagalitan ko na sila na, ‘Bakit ganyan ang galawan ninyo? Panalo na ba tayo? Hindi pa tayo panalo,’” Racraquin said. “Umayos naman sila. Parang nag-reel in sila na parang ‘Ok hindi pa panalo. Tapusin na lang muna namin hanggang 25 saka na lang kami magre-relax.’” Racraquin pushed San Beda to match point, 24-21, before Kim Manzano finished off the Lady Stags with a quick kill to close the one-hour, 27-minute encounter. The win pushed San Beda, which barely escaped Jose Rizal University in a five-set decision last Saturday, to a two-way tie with defending three-time champion Arellano University. The Lady Red Spikers’ last two games gave them a valuable lesson heading into their next assignments. “Kailangan lang namin ma-realize na hindi lang kami ang team na kayang gawin ang mga ‘to. Lahat kami nagti-training lahat ng mga kalaban namin nagti-training din araw-araw. Kailangan di lumaki ang ulo namin na, ‘Mas mataas naman ang skills natin, kaya natin.’ Di naman namin kayang idaan lang dun,” said Racraquin. “Kailangan naming i-mindset na, ‘O pareho tayo ng training. Makikita lang natin sa game ang difference kung sino ang mas gusto manalo. Kung sino ang mas willing na ibigay ang 100% niya para makuha ang panalo (siya ang mananalo),’” she added.     ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

NCAA Season 95: San Beda, Perpetual in search of back-to-back wins

San Beda University and University of Perpetual Help seek back-to-back victories when they face their respective foes on Tuesday in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Coming off a season-opening win, the Lady Red Spikers look to spark a winning streak in a showdown with San Sebastian College at 2:00 p.m. after the Lady Altas’ duel with Lyceum of the Philippines University at 12:00 noon. Both games will air via iWant. San Beda outlasted Jose Rizal University, 25-17, 22-25, 25-27, 25-14, 15-6, last Saturday to open its campaign on a high note. Veterans Cesca Racraquin and Nieza Viray, who had 24 and 21 points, respectively, the last time out, are again expected to lead the Lady Red Spikers’ drive to climb at second spot to tie defending three-time champion Arellano University (2-0). The Lady Stags, on the other hand, hope to arrest a two-game slide. SSC-R is winless in two games tied with Emilio Aguinaldo College and LPU. Meanwhile, the Lady Altas try to add another win in their card and break off from a four-way tie at 1-1 with Jose Rizal University, Letran and Mapua University. Perpetual defeated the SSC-R in four sets last Saturday. In men’s play, Perpetual will take on LPU at 10:00 a.m. while San Beda and SSC-R clash at 3:30 p.m. Scheduled in the juniors’ division are the 8:30 a.m. encounter of defending five-time champion Perpetual and LPU while San Beda and SSC-R will close the playdate at 5:00 p.m.   ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Almazan injury was turning point of PBA Finals, says coach Norman

Meralco just had no answer for Ginebra in the last three games of the 2019 PBA Governors' Cup Finals. After a convincing victory in Game 2 that evened the race-to-four series at 1-all, the Bolts lost three in a row to the Gin Kings. The crowd favorites, led by resident import Justin Brownlee and Finals MVP Japeth Aguilar, just ran roughshod over Meralco. And unfortunately, it didn't help matters that the Bolts were far from full power. "We lost our big men in the third game, first quarter and we never seemed to be the same team again," head coach Norman Black said. "I think, before Raymond got hurt, (the series) was tied at 1-1 and the first quarter (of Game 3) was a close quarter. We were competitive, but once he got hurt, everything changed." Indeed, the two teams split the first two games of the series before Raymond Almazan injured his left knee halfway through the opening period of Game 3. Almazan played through the pain in Game 4, but was, without a doubt, not 100 percent. "I'm not blaming it on Raymond not being there, but that was a big factor," coach Norman said. He then continued, "Certainly, we faced a team that's quite big and quite talented and without Raymond in the middle, we suffered. A lot of credit should go to Ginebra - they took advantage of the situation." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

ONE: After big end to 2019, Jeremy Miado targets even bigger start in 2020

Jeremy “The Jaguar” Miado had the perfect end to 2019. Now he is dreaming big for the new year.  After a knockout win over hometown favorite Miao Li Tao at ONE: AGE OF DRAGONS in Beijing, China last November, the pride of Albay City hopes to get closer to his goals this year. “I think stringing together wins could help me compete more often, like three or four times a year,” Miado told “I’m hoping to compete against a contender next year to get me ready for a potential World Title challenge.” Miado looked like he was about to ascend the division, but a loss to Dejdamrong Sor Amnuaysirichoke early in the year derailed his plans. That is why he is elated with the win, as he was able to adjust his preparations accordingly after he struggled heavily with his conditioning in his loss to the Thai legend.  “I’m happy with it because I got to close it out with a big win. I was really disappointed with my loss to Dejdamrong because I felt like all my training went to waste just because I couldn’t get my weight right,” Miado said. “It negatively contributed to my stamina in that match, but at least I was able to correct it the next time around to get that win over Miao.” The 26-year-old is currently enjoying his personal life, spending time with family over the holidays. But he knows he can be called upon anytime. “Right now, I’m a bit busy. Training has been light, mostly because I’m just trying to maintain my skills. However, once January rolls along, I’ll turn up the notch again just to be ready for the next match.” And while he does plan to wrap up his trilogy with Dejdamrong sometime in the future, his eyes are set on the climbing ladder, and he believes a trilogy can wait as he looks to scale the division first.  He does have his eyes on Adrian “Papua Badboy” Mattheis, a man who has won four of his last five matches, believing they can put on a good show for the fans.  “I really want to stand in the cage against Adrian Mattheis. He’s a talented striker, so I do want to compete against him,” Miado said.  “I think we would be able to put on a great show for the fans. However, I’m ready and willing to take on anyone else ONE will put in front of me.”.....»»

Game 4 PBA Finals: Brownlee makes statement in Ginebra’s convincing Game 4 win

Barangay Ginebra is closing in on another PBA title at the expense of Meralco. Justin Brownlee went full beast mode in Game 4 Wednesday at the Big Dome, leading the Gin Kings’ charge in Game 4 of the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals and taking a convincing 94-72 win over the Bolts. After seeing rival Allen Durham win a record third Best Import award, it was Brownlee who played like the league’s top reinforcement, dominating for 27 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, five steals, and four blocks. With a 3-1 series lead, Ginebra is one win away from a third Governors’ Cup title against the Bolts in four seasons. The Gin Kings can close it out Friday at the MOA Arena. Game 4 started as a defensive slugfest with the opening period ending with an unsightly score of 14-all. But as Brownlee's offense picked up, he scored 15 points in the second, so did Ginebra's. The Gin Kings poured it on the rest of the way, leading by as many as 27 points, as the Bolts' offense never got it going. After Brownlee, Stanley Pringle continued to make his case as a possible Finals MVP with 21 points and seven rebounds in a starting role. Scottie Thompson likewise had a good game, dropping 16 points in the victory. Meralco's shooting has abandoned the team with the Bolts shooting just 37 percent from the field, including 3/26 from deep. Allen Durham was the high man with 21 points and 27 rebounds while Chris Newsome added 12. Raymond Almazan, suffering from a lateral meniscus tear on his left knee, started for the Bolts and finished with 12 points and nine rebounds in 28 minutes.   The Scores: Ginebra 94 - Brownlee 27, Pringle 21, Thompson 16, Tenorio 8, Dillinger 7, Aguilar 5, Caguioa 5, Mariano 3, Slaughter 2, Caperal 0, Chan 0, Dela Cruz 0. Meralco 72 - Durham 21, Newsome 12, Almazan 12, Quinto 7, Salva 6, Maliksi 6, Caram 4, Amer 2, Hodge 2, Faundo 0, Jackson 0, Pinto 0. Quarterscores: 14-14, 42-31, 70-55, 94-72. — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Finals: We were very methodical tonight -- Cone on breaking down Meralco

Barangay Ginebra head coach Tim Cone couldn’t help but smile with how the Gin Kings executed their game plan to a tee. Slowly building momentum from a low-scoring and sluggish first quarter, Ginebra worked its way to building enough cushion in the next two periods before cruising to a 94-72 win over Meralco in Game 4 of the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup Finals for a 3-1 series lead on Wednesday at the Big Dome. “I thought we did a good, methodical job,” said Cone, who is a win away from steering the Gin Kings to its third season-ending title in four years.   From a 14-14 first quarter stalemate, the Gin Kings found their range in the second canto with Justin Brownlee dropping 15 of his 27 points as Ginebra shot 11-of-19 from the field while the Bolts struggled with their shooting with a 8-of-22 clip and missing all of their nine three-point attempts in the period. The Gin Kings sustained their momentum in the second half to break the game wide open, 90-63, off a Mark Caguioa jumper with 3:33 remaining in the ball game. “We were very methodical tonight in breaking them down on the offensive side,” said Cone. Ginebra pounced on Meralco’s sour shooting especially from beyond the arc – a hellish 3-of-26 clip - and was patient in executing its offense.   “They were 1-14 from the 3-point line in the first half so they had no rhythm,” Cone pointed out. “We were very methodical out there. We weren't rushing. We built the lead slowly then kept it when we got it.” Cone also lauded his team for its defense on Best Import winner Allen Durham, who finished with 21 points on 9-of-23 shooting. “We did a great job against Durham. We held him to eight (sic) points at halftime, that's amazing,” said Cone of Durham, who was held down to nine points in the first two periods. “If you're gonna do that to a player like that, you better win the basketball game. Team-wise, I thought we played him well tonight.” The Gin Kings can close the series on Friday at the MOA Arena.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
