FIBA WORLD CUP: Gilas Pilipinas absorbs shock upset from Kazakhstan

MANILA, Philippines --- Obviously, this is not the Asian Games. Kazakhstan scored a big-time upset Friday at the MOA Arena here, beating the Philippines, 92-88, in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. Losing by 37 points to Gilas in Jakarta a couple of months back in the 2018 Asiad, Kazakhstan would frustrate the Filipinos on their home floor, making the Group F race all the more interesting. After Marcio Lassiter hit a triple to put the Philippines within two, 88-90, with 26 seconds to go, Rustam Yergali found Anton Bykov down low for a crucial layup, giving Kazakhstan a two-possession lead. With 12.7 seconds to work with, Gilas got LA Tenorio a wide-open three but the Ginebra playmaker missed. Bykov was fouled on the rebound but ended up missing two free throws as well but Kazakhstan's four-point lead was more than enough to hold on. With the shock win Kazakhstan win, Gilas Pilipinas is now tied with the red-hot Japan for third place in Group F with identical 5-4 records. Australia maintains pole position with an 8-1 mark after a win over Iran and the Boomers are through to the World Cup next year. Iran is second with a 6-3 record and will face the Philippines Monday in another crucial clash while Kazakhstan is fifth with a 4-5 mark with the Akatsuki Five up next in Toyama. Tied at 79 with 2:39 to go, Gilas took the lead after Tenorio buried a quick jumper of a timeout. However, it was quickly answered by Yergali with a triple for an 82-81 lead for Kazakhstan. Pringle pushed the Philippines ahead for the last time, 83-82, following a driving layup but Nikolay Bazhin scored four straight for Kazakhstan and the visitors took over for good. "Well of course we're disappointed," Gilas head coach Yeng Guiao said. "But we still have one game on Monday and we can't feel too negative about ourselves. I think we can salvage the situation if we're able to play a good game against Iran and learn from this game, the lessons from this game," he added.   STAN THE MAN Stanley Pringle carried the Gilas offense for the first five minutes of the third period, at one point scoring seven straight for a 51-50 lead for the Philippines. Pringle would keep the national team afloat, cashing in on two unsportsmanlike fouls from Kazakhstan to give Gilas a three-point lead before he headed to the bench with a minute and change left in the quarter. In total, Pringle scored 14 points in the third but it was not enough as back-to-back triples from Alexandr Zhigulin and Shaim Kuanov pushed Kazakhstan ahead, 65-62.   WE'RE PLAYING DEFENSE It was a slow start for the two teams, with the defense forcing bad shots on both ends. However, Kazakhstan was getting enough to take a 7-2 lead early before the Gilas responded with a 9-0 run sparked by the San Miguel Beermen. Marcio Lassiter first found June Mar Fajardo for an easy layup before Fajardo returned the favor, setting up his shooter for a booming triple. The Philippines took its first lead of the game after a layup from Lassiter and Fajardo scored on a hook shot to complete the run, forcing Kazakhstan to call a timeout down 7-11. Come the second quarter, the Kazakhstan defense swarmed Gilas, forcing a couple of turnovers in the first minute alone. Anton Bykov cashed in twice, giving the visitors a 23-18 lead and forcing the Filipinos to burn an early timeout. Matthew Wright  would then make things happen for Gilas, and his play was good for eight points as the Philippines forced another tie at 26-all. Still, Kazakhstan would keep its cool and back-to-back triples from Rustam Murzagaliyev from pretty much the same spot capped a 9-2 run for a seven-point lead. The Philippines managed to take over late in the first half, 39-38, with Scottie Thompson and Stanley Pringle sparking a 9-0 blitz. However, Kazakhstan managed to beat the clock for a one-point lead at the break. Pringle was the high man for the Philippines with 29 points while June Mar Fajardo finished with a 14-point, 13-rebound double-double. Marcio Lassiter added 13 points for Gilas Pilipinas. For Kazakhstan, it was Alexandr Zhigulin that led the way with a game-high 30 points while Anton Bykov was good for 20. Rustam Murzagaliyev has 11 points and Rustam Yergali dropped 10 points. The Philippines will next host Iran Monday while Kazakhstan is off to Toyama to take on Japan.   The Scores: KAZAKHSTAN 92 -- Zhigulin 30, Bykov 20, Yergali 12, Murzagaliyev 11, Kuanov 8, Bazhin 7, Marchuk 4, Chsherbak 0, Lapchenko 0, Gavrilov 0. PHILIPPINES 88 -- Pringle 29, Fajardo 14, Lassiter 13, Tenorio 8, Norwood 7, Thompson 6, Wright 5, Aguilar 4, Erram 2, Cabagnot 0, Belga 0, Slaughter 0. Quarters: 17-18, 40-39, 65-62, 92-88.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

FIBA WORLD CUP: Gilas going Stanley for KAZ; Stan vs IRI

Despite not yet giving a final 12-man lineup for the Philippines-Kazakhstan and Philippines-Iran FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers on Nov. 30 and Dec. 3, respectively, Gilas coach Yeng Guiao says the team has made up their mind for their naturalized players. The fiery coach says the team was "90-percent" sure that they would be fielding in explosive guard Stanley Pringle of the NorthPort Batang Pier against Kazakhstan on Friday November 30th, where his scoring is expected to be a factor. Gilas will then be utilizing the services of San Miguel big man Christian Standhardinger to match up with the tall and phyisical Iran frontline on Monday, December 3rd.  Guiao also added that at this point, 10 players have been decided but the last two slots will be still be determined before the submission of the names to the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) Wednesday afternoon. He further explained that choosing among the most stacked roster the Philippines has seen in recent memory has been quite difficult. "We're trying to cover all the bases at this point. These are the games that will really matter. Importanteng laro na we will be judged, we will be defined by the games that we will play in the next few days," shared the national team coach. The penultimate full practice at the Meralco Gym before Gilas faces off against Kazakhstan was held Wednesday morning and was attended by 17 of the 19 players in the pool, namely Jayson Castro, Matthew Wright, Beau Belga, Scottie Thompson, Ricci Rivero, Gabe Norwood, Marcio Lassiter, June Mar Fajardo, Poy Erram, and Arwind Santos. Also in attendance were Alex Cabagnot, Troy Rosario, LA Tenorio, Paul Lee, Japeth Aguilar, Greg Slaughter, and Pringle. Standhardinger (illness) and Kai Sotto (school) were not present. The final full practice for Gilas before the Kazakhstan tussle will be Thursday evening at the Mall of Asia Arena.  __ Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

Spike Lee reacts to newspaper confusing him for Stan Lee: ‘Not yet’

While Marvel fans the world over mourn the passing of legendary comics creator Stan Lee, one newspaper in New Zealand announced the death of a different American creative. "Characters first, superheroes next: Spike Lee dies at 95," reads the headline on the front page of the Gisborne Herald. The picture is at least correct: that of the white-haired, mustached white man who made superheroes such as Iron Man and Spider-Man rather than the bearded 61-year-old black man known for the films "Malcolm X" and "BlacKkKlansman". "There's something different about Spike Lee but I can't quite place it," quipped Twitter user @Ohheykenny yesterday, Nov. 13, posting a picture of the headline and S...Keep on reading: Spike Lee reacts to newspaper confusing him for Stan Lee: ‘Not yet’.....»»

Stan Lee used his pen as his superpower to fight racism

Stan Lee was a seminal part of Miya Crummell's childhood. As a young, black girl and self-professed pop culture geek, she saw Lee was ahead of his time. "At the time, he wrote 'Black Panther' when segregation was still heavy," said the 27-year-old New Yorker who is a graphic designer and independent comic book artist. "It was kind of unheard of to have a black lead character, let alone a title character and not just a secondary sidekick kind of thing." Crummell spent much of the '90s engrossed in Marvel Comics. And she felt so indebted to Lee that she waited in line to meet him at a 2012 convention. "I had a chance to tell him he was my hero," she said. "He influenced my who...Keep on reading: Stan Lee used his pen as his superpower to fight racism.....»»
