Tony dela Cruz joins Hontiveros in retirement

ANTIPOLO --- Dondon Hontiveros wasn't the only one who retired from basketball after Wednesday at the Ynares Center here. Following Alaska's season-finale to Rain or Shine, which happened to be a 30-point loss, Tony dela Cruz is also calling it quits after almost 18 years in the league. He finished with 12 points as a starter for his final outing. One of the steadiest forwards in the PBA, dela Cruz played for Alaska since 2005 after his first stint in the league as a member of the now-defunct Shell franchise. TLDC won three PBA titles with Alaska and was a 4-time All-Star. He also served the Philippine team during his lengthy career. 'I'm super proud of the career I had, obviously I didn't have the accolades, the trophies, the championships that I wish I had but I got to meet some really great people,' dela Cruz said. 'Played against awesome opponents, imports, played for great coaches and played in the best league in Asia. Super honored to retire with Alaska,' he added. Despite retiring, dela Cruz says that he'd still like to stay around the game of basketball in any way he can. One of his goals is to one day maybe coach in the PBA. 'Opportunities in terms of speaking, talking about leadership and communication and then I really want to get into commentating so hopefully you’ll see me more in the games,' he said. 'I wanna be around the game, hopefully I can coach where I can learn, then hopefully be a head coach in the PBA but obviously I have a lot to learn. Just super super lucky and blessed to be part of two great organizations in Alaska and Shell,' dela Cruz added.   br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Letran returns to winning form just in time for playoff push

Just in time for the stretch run in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Colegio de San Juan de Letran has put a stop to its downward spiral. Leaning on big-time scoring outbursts from Bong Quinto and JP Calvo as well as steely resolve in the endgame, the Knights weathered the storm brought about by desperate Arellano University, 84-73, on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Quinto posted a 20-point, 10-rebound double-double while Calvo fired eight of his 20 markers in the final frame as Jeff Napa’s wards barged back into the win column now at 6-6. “At least, nakabalik na kami sa win columm. Important win sa amin ‘to,” the head coach said. This puts a stop to a three-game slide that, at one point, took them out of the playoff picture. “We took care of business ngayon and pambwelo sa amin ‘to ulit,” Napa said. Now, however, they are tied for fourth with Emilio Aguinaldo College. Letran was in control for majority of the matchup and still led by 12, 79-65, with under two minutes remaining until the Chiefs staged a comeback and came as close as 73-79. It was at that point that Marwin Taywan committed an unfortunate unsportsmanlike foul that sent Rey Nambatac to the line. That was just the gift birthday boy Napa needed as Nambatac split from the stripe and with the ballback, Calvo’s triple finished the job in their much-needed win. “JP, consistent naman siya. Yung others ang kailangan sumunod,” the now 37-year-old mentor shared. The Knights’ captain wound up with 14 points and eight rebounds while Jerrick Balanza and Alex Mandreza chipped in eight points apiece off the bench. “Good thing sumunod nga yung iba and naging maganda ang result para sa amin ngayon,” Napa said. For Arellano, Kent Salado showed the way with 23 points, five rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Still without much help, however, he saw his squad drop back-to-back losses now at 4-8.

Lady Warriors go streaking; Ateneo falls for first time

With De La Salle University plagued by injury, University of the East is now the closest challenger to National University’s throne in the UAAP 80 Women’s Basketball Tournament. And after a season-opening defeat, the Lady Warriors now look the part, going on a win run at the expense of hapless University of the Philippines, 52-42, on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum. Playing their third game in a week, the girls of head coach Aileen Lebornio still showed much sense of urgency in this one. Bienca Ramos and Joyce Francisco provided a big boost, conniving for all but four in UE’s 19-point third quarter that increased a three-point cushion into a 48-31 lead heading into the final frame. “Nung third quarter, buti nag-respond sila sa sinabi ko at nakuha na namin gusto namin,” Lebornio said. Love Sto. Domingo then hammered down the final nail in the coffin and eventually ended with a 15-point, 17-rebound double-double. Ramos and Francisco also contributed 12 markers apiece. Lebornio’s defense was stout as always, limiting the Lady Maroons into an abysmal 21 percent shooting. And so, after falling to NU in their first assignment, the Lady Warriors are now on a two-game win run. They are now in three-way tie for third after erstwhile undefeated Ateneo de Manila University suffered its first setback in the season. Valerie Mamaril and Precious Arellado scored 16 and 15 points, respectively, and Far Eastern University made another statement, taking down the Lady Eagles, 64-58. Katrina Guytingco’s back-to-back hits kept things interesting for Ateneo in the last 20 seconds before Mamaril kept them at bay once and for all by converting three charities. “At least, meron na kaming help ngayon kasi si Arellado lang last year e. Nag-improve na rin talaga yung Mamaril,” head coach Bert Flores said after his girls bounced back onto a 2-1 standing. Also at 2-1 are the Lady Eagles who were led by Hazelle Yam’s 20 points.

Double-time work delivers goods for Red Lions

“Double time, double time!” That was what surprise San Beda College coach Al Alegro muttered the very moment his Red Lions fell in straight sets to the favored National University Bulldogs, 15-25, 16-25, 18-25, in their first outing in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference. The next day coach Alegro, who took over when head coach Nes Pamilar underwent a heart surgery, plunged his players into longer training hours only to be clawed into submission again by the UAAP triple champion Ateneo Blue Eagles. But Alegro took comfort from the way his charges made the Blue Eagles sweat for every point, 23-25, 16-25, 25-27. Finally on Sept. 11, the coach and his team’s staunchest supporters, Atty. Tomas Africa and his wife, breathed a sigh of relief following the Red Lions’ masterful handling of the usually strong University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, 25-22, 22-25, 19-25. Newcomer Jomaru Amagan exploded with 14 points and the veteran pair of Mark Christian Enciso and Limuel Patenio combined for 25 points to lead the Red Lions’ rise from a two-game skid. “Nakuha rin sa sipag,” Alegro blurted out as he rose from the bench to applaud his players. Blissful was just the exact word to describe his face as he walked toward the locker; it stayed with him, said middle blocker Adrian Viray long after the game. Inside the dressing room so overjoyed was he that he could not find enough appetite to finish off the home-cooked meals prepared and delivered to Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City by the Africas. He sat on the bench without talking. He was just looking at his players celebrating in the locker, the appetizing food before him untouched for several minutes, reported assistant coach Ariel dela Cruz. “Binubugbog ko sila ngayon sa training. Mas mahabang oras, mas mahirap na drills,” Alegro said of the kind of training he now subjects his players after the stinging loss to the Bulldogs. All his 14 players including rookies Amagan and Angelo Torres in this season-ending tournament of the PVL, a collaboration among organizer Sports Vision, official league partner Asics, and official game ball Mikasa, are eligible for the NCAA, where the Red Lions landed in third place the previous season.   strong>Unofficial team manager /strong> Atty. Africa could only smile in acceptance whenever he is referred to as San Beda’s unofficial team manager in volleyball – and basketball as well, he added. It was his brother, Fr. Eduardo Africa, he said, who started the family’s attachment to the Red Lions and Lionesses in the two sports. “During his time my brother was the sports chaplain of the college on Mendiola. Now that he is away as head of the Bukidnon monastery, the rest of us continue to support the players.” The complete San Beda lineup: Jomaru Amagan, Gian Carlo Genobaten, Angelo Torres, Adrian Viray, Yeshua Manliclic, Limuel Patenio, Rodel Nellas Casin, Bryan James Gonzales, Ferdinand Ulibas, Mark Christian Enciso, Earl Kenneth Gonzales, Mark Lorenze Santos, John Carlo Desuyo, and Gerald Zabala. Alegrio Carpio, head coach; Ariel dela Cruz, assistant coach. .....»»

Red Robins, Jr. Blazers still tied for first; San Beda stops skid

strong>STANDINGS /strong> br /> CSB-LSGH 10-2 br /> Malayan 10-2 br /> Letran 7-4 br /> San Beda 7-5 br /> Arellano 5-6 br /> San Sebastian 5-6 br /> LPU 5-7 br /> Perpetual 4-7 br /> JRU 3-8 br /> EAC 1-10 Defending champion Malayan High School of Science and oncoming College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills still have a score to settle in the NCAA 93 Juniors Basketball Tournament. The two teams remain in each other’s throats for first-place following separate wins on Thursday and Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The defending champion Red Robins made quick work of the Brigadiers, 82-68, last Thursday. Team captain Warren Bonifacio showed the way with 19 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and two blocks while Clint Escamis also contributed 12 markers, seven boards, and one pilfer. They were never threated all throughout and waltzed their way onto a 10-2 standing. Tying them there once more are the Junior Blazers who rode Joshua Marcos’ career-best 22 points to go along with 12 rebounds past University of Perpetual Help, 82-69, on Friday. Marcos was backstopped by three other teammates in double-digits en route to a share of first. Court general Joel Cagulangan orchestrated the offensive with a total of 10 points, eight assists, and four rebounds. Their respective losses dropped the Junior Altas to 4-7 and the Brigadiers to 1-10. Meanwhile, San Beda High School finally got back on track following a gritty overtime victory versus San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 85-78. Evan Nelle was the difference, scoring eight points and assisting on five others in his team’s 13-6 extra period. The Red Cubs lost three in a row before the much-needed win. They now stand at 7-5, still solo fourth. Strengthening their stranglehold of third spot, however, is Colegio de San Juan de Letran which grounded Jose Rizal High School, 91-87. Kurt Reyson had 20 points to lead a total of four Squires in double-digits as they improved to 7-4. Their respective losses dropped the Staglets to 5-6 and the Light Bombers to 3-8. Also still in the running is Lyceum of the Philippines University which added to the woes of Arellano High School, 89-82. Mac Guadana topped the scoring column for the Junior Pirates with 19 points. They rose to 5-7 with the win. At the same time, LPU continued to drag down the Braves who are now 5-6 following back-to-back losses.
