PVL: Jewelle Bermillo set to do double-duty to end PVL season

Rookie libero Jewelle Bermillo had quite the eventful first conference in the Premier Volleyball League.  In her maiden run with the BaliPure Purest Water Defenders in the 2019 PVL Reinforced Conference, Bermillo was on the receiving end of a hard-hitting facial courtesy of PetroGazz import Wilma Salas, and then made the news again after an incident with teammate and import Danijela Dzakovic.  As eventful as the Reinforced Conference was for Bermillo, it was largely a forgettable one as they finished last in the standings, failing to get a win in ten matches played.  It was indeed tough, but it was also a huge learning lesson for the 19-year old as she gears up for her second PVL conference.  "Yung experience ko, andami kong na-gain, naging mature ako last conference and madadala ko yun sa Open Conference," Bermillo told ABS-CBN Sports. "Sobrang nag-grow ako sa lahat ng nagyari last conference. Naging mas matured ako, naging mas matapang ako sa loob ng court ngayon." While being the youngest on the team, Bermillo is positioned as one of the Water Defenders' leaders and anchors, and the responsibility is something that she welcomes with open arms.  "Pag sinasabi ni Coach na ako yung mag-handle sa loob ng court kasi ako na yung libero, hindi ko nafi-feel na bata ako kasi may tiwala sila sa akin, na kaya ko i-handle sila sa loob ng court, lalo na sa floor defense. Hindi ko nafi-feel na bata ako sa loob ng court." An incoming sophomore for San Sebastian College-Recoletos in the NCAA, being able to compete in the PVL, alongside some of the best talents in the country is definitely a goldmine of experience for the young libero, and she is nothing short of eager to be able to bring that experience back to her collegiate team once the NCAA Women's Volleyball Tournament begins next year.  "Siguro sa akin, kay Coach Roger [Gorayeb], marami siyang ineexpect sa akin na itong experience ko dito sa BaliPure, na madadala ko sa kanila para maging leader din ako sa kanila sa team namin." Bermillo will get even more training in becoming a leader in the closing leg of the PVL season, as she shared that she will not be suiting up for the Lady Stags in the Collegiate Conference, but will instead serve as an assistant coach, alongside legendary San Sebastian mentor Roger Gorayeb.  The young libero could hardly keep her excitment as she spoke about the massive opportunity.  "Sobrang excited ko, sobrang unexpected, parang, yung dream ko agad na, eto, sa age kong ‘to na naging Assistant Coach na ako ni Coach Roger, si Coach Roger pa," Bermillo said, excitement.  Bermillo adds that rather than having her play in the Collegiate Conference as well, Gorayeb saw fit to let her focus on her experience with BaliPure as a way to grow and develop as a player.  "Sabi nga ni coach sa akin, hindi ko kailangan i-pressure ka na maglaro. Yang experience na natutunan mo sa BaliPure, ilalaan natin yan para sa NCAA." Bermillo sees the job offer, so to speak, as a sign of trust from Gorayeb's side, and it should prove to be an invaluable experience, especially for someone who still has years to go in the collegiate ranks.  "Ito, yung pagiging Assistant Coach ko sa kanila, sa mother team ko, ituturo ko lang sa kanila, iga-guide ko sila kung ano yung mga natutunan at na-experience ko last conference. Sobrang laking bagay, kasi para sa akin, malaki yung tiwala sa akin ni Coach Roger, kaya binigay niya yung ganung responsibility, parang sa kanya, alam niya na kaya ko na agad yung ganung responsibility, kaya sobrang thankful ako na nagkaroon siya ng tiwala na ibigay sa akin yung position na maging Assistant Coach itong collegiate conference." she added.  Bermillo admits that she did try to convince Coach Roger to let her suit up for San Sebastian as well, but with the Collegiate Conference and the Open Conference set to overlap, the schedule would be a problem and it would put too much on the young libero's shoulders.  "Sobrang pinilit ko talaga si Coach na mag-laro ako, pero sabi niya mahihirapan daw ako kasi nga sabay po yung games namin ng BaliPure tapos may sched pa po na parehas may game yung collegiate tapos kami, kaya naisipan na lang niya na gawin akong Assistant Coach para mapag-sabihan ko rin yung mga bata. May mga mas bata pa sa akin na maglalaro sa akin, mga first year, sabi niya ikaw na mag-guide sa kanila," she explained. .....»»

Lots of questions, few answers as Team USA opens training camp

By John Schuhmann, LAS VEGAS -- The U.S. Men's Senior National Team tipped off training camp on Monday. This was the start of a six-week process that they hope ends with the gold medal game of the FIBA World Cup in Beijing on Sept. 15. This week includes four days of practice, followed by an intrasquad scrimmage on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Before we get into the next six weeks, let's review how we got to Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) with a much different pool of players than national team managing director Jerry Colangelo originally anticipated. The originals - Last year, there were 35 players named to the 2018-20 USA roster for a 2018 minicamp, this year's World Cup and next year's Olympics. - Of those 35, only 14 were on the 20-man training camp roster for the World Cup when it was announced on June 10. - Between June 10 and the start of camp on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), nine of those 14 backed out. - The five remaining are Harrison Barnes, Kyle Lowry, Khris Middleton, Myles Turner and Kemba Walker. The additions - As part of the 20-player training camp announcement on June 10, six players were added to the 14 from the original 35-player list. - Since then, one of those six - Paul Millsap - backed out. - Six more players were added on July 25. - In the 10 days since then, two of those six - Montrezl Harrell and Julius Randle - backed out. - Last week, Bam Adebayo was added to the roster. - Before camp opened, De'Aaron Fox and Joe Harris were (sort of) promoted from the Select Team to the Senior Team. The absences Going back to who's not here: There are 33 players - 30 from the 2018-20 roster and three that signed up and backed out this year - who have decided not to play. That's almost three full rosters of American players, and it doesn't include any guys that were offered a spot, but declined before being named to the roster. J.J. Redick is a player that reportedly declined an invite. They can't all be lumped into one group of guys who just don't want to make the six-week commitment. Some have family business to tend to. But one reason cited by multiple players who have backed out is preparing for next season. And in that regard, the World Cup schedule, along with the travel, is not ideal. The gold medal game is Sept. 15. So players will be returning from China (on a flight of 15 hours or so) on Sept. 16. The start of NBA training camps has been pushed back one week this year, but national team players will have less than two weeks between their return and the opening of camps. Players on the Brooklyn Nets, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors will have even less than that, along with a trip back to Asia for early-October exhibition games in Japan or China. Colangelo also cited the fact that the World Cup and Olympics are in back-to-back years (with an NBA season in between), instead of two years apart like they were in the past. And while this year's World Cup is toward the end of the summer, next year's Olympics start July 25, with training camp probably opening not long after The NBA Finals. (If it were the same six-week period from the start of camp to the gold medal game as it is this year, next year's camp would actually open on June 29). 17 players for 12 spots Fox and Harris aren't on the official Senior Team roster, but Colangelo said Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) that they have a chance of making the final 12-man roster for the World Cup. So that makes 17 players for 12 spots. By position, they are: PG: De'Aaron Fox, Kyle Lowry, Kemba Walker SG: Joe Harris, Donovan Mitchell, Marcus Smart SF: Jaylen Brown, Kyle Kuzma, Khris Middleton, Jayson Tatum PF: Harrison Barnes, P.J. Tucker, Thaddeus Young C: Bam Adebayo, Brook Lopez, Mason Plumlee, Myles Turner There's obviously some flexibility in there. Two point guards could play together, Mitchell could play some point guard, and all of the small forwards could play some at the four. Lowry, who had surgery on his left thumb just a few weeks ago, isn't participating in camp this week. He's hoping to be cleared to practice when the team reconvenes in Los Angeles from Aug. 13-16 for three more days of practice and an exhibition game against Spain. But right now, it's not guaranteed that he'll be able to play. With or without him, it's still a very talented group. "Thank goodness we're blessed with the depth of talent we have in this country," Colangelo said. "You find guys that want to play and you go with them." Cutting down the list from 17 to 12 won't be easy. Point guard, where Lowry has the experience (see below) and Walker is the star, may be the only position where there's a clear hierarchy. At each of the other positions, different players bring different skill sets, but it's not clear that Player A is better than Player B, who is better than Player C. The World Cup doesn't require final rosters until the day before the tournament starts (it's earlier for the Olympics), so the final decisions don't have to be made before the team flies from L.A. to Australia for three more exhibition games. "We're flexible," Colangelo said. "If we have a tough decision to make, we'll bring an extra guy or two with us." The experience Of the 17 players in camp, only three have played for the United States in an international competition on the senior level. Plumlee was on the 2014 World Cup team, and both Lowry and Barnes were on the 2016 Olympic team. And neither Plumlee (11th on the '14 team in total minutes) nor Barnes (last on the '16 team in total minutes) played integral roles. The 2010 World Cup team was similarly inexperienced - Chauncey Billups and Tyson Chandler played on the 2007 FIBA Americas team - but had four future MVPs: Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook. The talent That 2010 team had seven players who had been selected in the top five in the NBA Draft. Since 1992, there have been 15 U.S. National Teams comprised of NBA players. And those 15 teams have had an average of seven top-five picks on them, with *no fewer than four. * The two teams with only four top-five picks: The 2002 team that finished sixth at the World Championship and the 2016 Olympic team that won gold in Rio. This 17-man group includes only three top-five picks: Brown (No. 3 in 2016), Fox (No. 5 in 2017) and Tatum (No. 3 pick in 2017). And it would be a surprise if Fox makes the final roster. Since 1992, the only one of those 15 U.S. teams that didn't have a No. 1 pick on it was the 2000 Olympic team, which had nine players who were selected second (4), third (1), or fifth (4). This 17-man roster includes just one player who has made an all-NBA team in the last three years. That's Walker, who was a Third Team selection this year. The opportunity With the ball in his hands Walker could be the star of this team. And he sees the roster attrition as an opportunity. "I think a lot of us are happy those guys pulled out," Walker said Monday. "This is our chance, our chance to get on the big stage and showcase our talent. It's a chance for us to do something new. It'll be a new-look team. Everybody's kind of doubting us, but I think we're hungry." When he was asked why he remained committed, Walker's explanation was pretty simple. "I love basketball," he said. "I love to play. What better opportunity can you have than to play for your country? This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a lot of us." A monstrous sacrifice Lopez has nominated himself as the player that has made the biggest sacrifice to be in Vegas, because if he wasn't, he'd be in the Scottish Highlands with the rest of his family. "I could be looking for Nessy!" Lopez said. John Schuhmann is a senior stats analyst for You can e-mail him here, find his archive here and follow him on Twitter.

PVL: Creamline, eight other teams battle for crown and glory in Open Conference

Star-studded Creamline will face a tough field in its title-retention bid with eight other squads including three newcomers raring to knock the crown off the Cool Smashers’ heads when the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference begins on August 11. The season-ending tournament will feature nine teams with the return of Philippine Air Force, which skipped the Reinforced Conference, and the introduction of two new squads in ChocoMucho and Chef’s Classics. The Cool Smashers, who are bannered by three-time conference Most Valuable Player Alyssa Valdez and top setter Jia Morado, are expected to go all-out to protect their throne after relinquishing the Reinforced conference title to PetroGazz weeks back. Creamline will have redemption as its motivation in the tournament that will open earlier than its usual schedule in deference to the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games in November. “Babawi talaga kami,” vowed Valdez. “Going to the second conference, all-Filipino, hindi ko sinasabi na we’re all equal but ang sinasabi ko lahat ng locals magtatrabaho kasi gusto naming manalo,” added the Cool Smashers team captain. “I think that’s the beauty of all-Filipino talaga makikita natin ang talent ng kapwa nating mga Filipino.” But the road won’t be an easy one for the Creamline. Back to complete a season sweep are the Angels led by solid middle Jeanette Panaga and Cherry Nunag with hitters Jonah Sabete, Paneng Mercado and playmaker Djanel Cheng. Fresh from a bronze medal finish in its maiden campaign, veteran-laden PacificTown Army is a considered as one of the top contenders so does BanKo, which will parade power-hitters Nicole Tiamzon and Dzi Gervacio. With a healthy Myla Pablo back to lead a young and dynamic Motolite side, the Air Padda-mentored squad could finally break out from its shell to surprise the lead just like BaliPure, which is looking to improve from its last place finish in the season-opening tournament.    Back in the fold are the Jet Spikers, bringing their veterans back after a one-conference hiatus. ChocoMucho, Creamline’s sister team, will try to live up to its pre-conference hype as Flyin Titans march into battle with former Ateneo de Manila University stars Kat Tolentino, Bea de Leon and Maddie Madayag leading the way while another expansion team Chef’s Classics is out to make its mark in the league. Meanwhile, the league will also hold the Collegiate Conference with more than 10 teams expressing their intentions to participate.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

The Journey to a More Active Lifestyle: How To Stay On Track

Half a year has passed. How’s your fitness resolution going so far? Some managed to stay on track with their health and wellness journey, while it’s been a tough ride for others. But quitting should never be an option—if you’re still serious in keeping your body in tip-top shape. Need an extra push to keep on moving? These tips won’t let you down.  Identify your motivation -  Are you trying to lose weight? Aiming to tone and strengthen your muscles? Or maybe, you’re just looking for a new recreational activity? Define your real purpose. Let it serve as your guide and motivation to work harder. Nothing can stop you once you’re fully determined to reach your goal. Find new fitness activities that suit your style - Stop signing up for ‘trendy’ workouts. Or joining fitness classes because your friends are hooked on these activities. It’s okay to explore your options. But stick with the one that you really enjoy the most. Want to master combat sports? Game. Interested in circuit training? Give it a go. Aiming to develop your coordination and mental concentration? Try parkour classes. If you enjoy what you’re doing, it will keep you going—no matter how challenging each session gets.  Plan your workouts - ‘It’s too early’. ‘It’s too late’. ‘It’s raining’. ‘I forgot my gym clothes and training gears’. Schedule your exercise ahead of time so you wouldn’t have to use these excuses. Train during the time that works best for you—consider if you’re a morning or night person. Download a weather app so the rain couldn’t bother you from your run. Pack your gym essentials hours before your training. Stop skipping your workout by eliminating all these possible scenarios. Surround yourself with people who will inspire you to keep going -  It will take time to see real progress. And the last thing you need to hear are discouraging remarks from others. Like people telling you to quit because ‘nothing’s happening, you look the same’. Get away from the toxicity and surround yourself with ‘cheerleaders’. Those people who will push you to go further—because you can. And you should. If they could also be your gym buddies, the better. That way, you’ll be able to bring each other up—whenever the other person feels like surrendering.  Choose gym essentials that work as hard as you do - From activewear, sports shoes, up to your fitness hygiene kit. Your exercise essentials affect your performance. Just imagine wearing sportswear that doesn’t provide ample support and training shoes that don’t aid in shock absorption. Or using gym essentials that don’t keep you from being hulas (aka smelly + sweaty!) throughout your workout.  Stop settling for whatever is available and start choosing quality over anything else - Double-check your activewear’s description. See if it has all the features and protection you need. And if you want to avoid leaving sweat and odor protection up to chamba, include Rexona deo-lotion in your hygiene kit.  Rexona has MotionSense technology that offers motion-activated protection from sweat and odor. The more you move, the more it works—and its freshness lasts up to 48 hours, too. So, if you’re someone who hates excessive perspiration during workouts, Rexona will be a real life-saver for you. Don’t worry, this one wouldn’t take much space in your bag since it comes in a sachet variant. Cool (literally and figuratively), huh?  Half a year has passed. That’s a gentle reminder of how far you’ve already come, and how far you have to go. Keep on moving. Keep on working on yourself. You got this.        Shower lang, kulang. Say No to Chamba, Chamba freshness! Get guaranteed sweat and odor protection with Rexona.  Buy the Rexona Anti-Stain +  Ice Cool or Rexona Powder Dry in sachet variant  for only Php8 SRP in stores nationwide!  .....»»

NO FREE TICKETS: All SEA Games venues will charge entrance fee

No free viewing. Fans who want to catch the exciting action of the 30th Southeast Asian Games live at the event venues will have to pay for tickets. Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc), Foundation chief operating officer Ramon ‘Tats’ Suzara said that there will be a gate charge for all sports. “Of course for some sports that are not so popular we are trying to fix a minimal rate. [In} all sports, tickets will be charged,” said Suzara, who added that charging gate tickets will add ‘value’ to the sport. “We want the public to know that these sports are important. Even for a $1 ticket is enough for them to appreciate what the sport in the SEA Games is.”    Phisgoc is now in the process of striking a deal with a ticketing firm for featured sports in the biennial meet set on November 30 to December 11. Suzara said that they are talking with SM Tickets and could sign an agreement for event tickets in the next couple of weeks.    “Hopefully, we will be signing an agreement with SM Tickets. Sila ang pinakamagandang package, being also a sponsor of the SEA Games,” said Suzara. The country’s fourth hosting of the SEA Games will feature a record 56 sports and 530 events. “I think there will be a general pricing, but of course, there will be a semifinals, finals, doon natin medyo tataasan ng konti,” said Suzara. “Although the income of tickets will not so big, it adds also to the revenue of the SEA Games.” Suzara also added that they are also taking in consideration the capacity of event venues especially of crowd-drawing sports like basketball and volleyball. “Volleyball and basketball for sure [will draw huge gate attendance], what is important also is [to know] the number of seats na kailangan. It can be free-seating kung walang mga number ang seats pero ili-limit din natin,” he said. “We need to know the capacity, let’s say for example 10,000 yan, we will sell only 8,000 because the other 2,000 (tickets) are for athletes, media, broadcasters, NOC officials, VIPs and sponsors,” he explained further. Basketball will be played at the MOA Arena while volleyball will be held at the Philsports Arena in Pasig. Phisgoc earlier announced that 11 sports will be televised live inlcuding basketball (5x5 and 3x3), volleyball, football, swimming, diving, athletics, badminton, boxing, gymnastics, sepak takraw, taekwondo and E-sports. Tickets will be available once the schedule of games and events are finalized. Participating countries have until September 22 to submit their entry by names while the drawing of lots for team sports is on October 3.   -- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Beda vs Baste matchup headlines NCAA 95 schedule for July 23 to 26

These are the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament games from July 23 to 26 all of us just CAN NOT miss! TUESDAY, 8:00 a.m., Light Bombers vs Jr. Altas Perpetual has been the biggest surprise as a team in the NCAA 95 Jrs. JRU, meanwhile, has the biggest surprise as a player in Gholam Garcia. Something’s gotta give when these two pleasant surprises this early in the season meet in the middle of the floor. The Light Bombers and the Jr. Altas do battle and y'all can watch VIA LIVESTREAM. TUESDAY, 2:00 p.m., LPU vs San Sebastian Call it “The Topex Robinson Derby.” Coach Topex, now calling the shots for LPU, takes on his alma mater. On the other hand, San Sebastian takes on its former mentor. More than that, though, both the Pirates and the Golden Stags love to run and gun and it’s nothing but interesting to see who between them will be able to outrun and outgun the other.

THURSDAY, 2:00 p.m., Red Robins vs Jr. Blazers Put simply, this is a Finals rematch from last season. Only, both Mapua and LSGH, at present, find themselves at the bottom half of the standings as they are still adjusting to new coaches as well as the losses of all those stars. Still, this matchup may very well see the season debut of Jonnel Policarpio – and if that holds true, the rest of the league had better watch out for the oncoming Red Robins. The Red Robins and the Jr. Blazers do battle and y'all can watch VIA LIVESTREAM. THURSDAY, 4:00 p.m., Mapua vs CSB The matchup right after the NCAA Jrs. Finals rematch ain’t no slouch as well as CSB stakes its spotless slate against a Mapua side that is yet to win, but nonetheless remains dangerous. A win here will concretize the Blazers’ claim that they are for real, but at the same time, a win here may just be the jumpstart the Cardinals need to make noise.
