In all, San Beda forced JRU into 26 turnovers which were quickly converted into 26 points. Agem Miranda fronted the effort for the blue and gold with 14 points while John Amores also added 11 markers.

UAAP 82: Juan GDL more than happy to give whatever UP needs

The University of the Philippines is on its first win run in the UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament. With back-to-back wins, the Fighting Maroons have moved to solo second in the standings at 3-1 - just right behind undefeated defending champion Ateneo de Manila University. And State U has done this even though its homegrown star has yet to get going. Through four games, Juan Gomez de Liano is averaging 5.8 points and his shooting has not gone online. Even more, the third-year guard has just one double-digit scoring game to his name. Still, Juan GDL is nothing but satisfied - as he has given his all, just as his teammates have given their all, to make sure UP continued its contention. "I'm really happy for us because the fact is, we're winning. We've all been working hard for this," he said. While the 19-year-old's scoring is far from his norms of 16.2 a season ago, his all-around game remains, also posting per game counts of over five rebounds and over three assists thus far in the tournament. And Juan GDL will only keep giving whatever it is that the Fighting Maroons need. "Whatever coach Bo [Perasol] needs, I'll just be more than ready. It'll be a hard adjustment for me, but I'll just continue to be patient and selfless," he said. For his part, coach Bo could only sing the praises of his primary playmaker who has always been a team player. As he put it, "Yan ang sacrifice, yung ginagawa niya ngayon, yung ginagawa lang muna niya whatever is best for the team." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Gian Abrigo and Aris Dionisio shine as Manila are taken to the brink by a fiesty Navotas team.

Manila Stars - Frontrow won the battle for bragging rights across Estero de Marala by defeating Navotas Uni-Pak Sardines 96-91 in Wednesday night action of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. The Stars go to 12-2 in front of their fans in the San Andres Gym, but the home team were pushed hard by a Navoteno side that provided a stiffer challenge than their 3-10 record suggests. "Nahirapan talaga kami sa kanila. Sabi ni coach kailangan talaga natin ng stops, di pwede score lang," said Manila forward Gian Abrigo, who copped the best player of the game award on the strength of his 18 points and 11 rebounds. Aris Dionisio came to the fore in the second quarter for Manila, helping turn an 11-point deficit into a 45-43 halftime lead. The center came off the bench with 12 markers in the quarter including an alley-oop conversion off a Chris Bitoon pass and a slam dunk right after. He also picked up a block in the last possession that led to a Carlo Lastimosa layup. In a high-scoring third quarter Manila's Bitoon stepped up but so did Navoteno Jhong Bondoc. Frontrow led with ten minutes to go, 73-68. The fourth quarter saw the teams trading fire, with Bitoon, Lastimosa and Dionisio battliing mano a mano with Uni-Pak's Bondoc and Algin Andaya. With under a minute to go Bitoon gathered the ball after being blocked and looped in a one-hander for a precious 93-87 advantage. Navotas would score one more field goal, Bondoc completing his team-high 23 points, and Manila settled matters from the free throw line. The Stars win despite shooting a wretched 16 of 32 from the line. They did, however, dominate the smaller Navotas side with 60 points in the paint against 38. Dionisio was a monster with 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 steals and a pair of blocks.   Cebu Sharks 74 - 70 Zamboanga In the second game of the day the Cebu Sharks - Casino Ethyl Alcohol leaned on homegrown Cebuano center Will McAloney's five-star night to dismiss Zamboanga Family's Brand Sardines 74-70. McAloney led all scorers with 28 points as Casino Ethyl Alcohol concludes a three-game losing streak and keeps their playoff hopes alive with a 5-8 card. Despite 18 turnovers in the first half Zamboanga found themselves tied 25-all at the half with the Sharks. Cebu edged Zamboanga in the third quarter to take a 42-38 lead into the last 10 minutes. In the fourth quarter McAloney rolled up his sleeves and went to work, pounding the Zamboangeno defense with 17 points, many in the paint against the man tasked to stop him, Allan Santos. It was a nervous finish for the Sharks with a series of late turnovers that lead to an 8-0 run with Harold Arboleda coming up with 5 markers in that spell that pulled Family's Brand to within 4, 64-60, but an unsportsmanlike foul on Santos right after was a crucial error for the Sardine Kings. John Reel Saycon made both of the charities and when Harold Cortez also went 2-for-2 from the stripe soon after, Zamboanga's fate was clear. Late Zamboanga baskets made the scoreline more respectable but could not prevent the loss. Despite 21 points from Robin Rono, Zamboanga falls to 8-8.   Gensan Warriors 91 - Pasig Sta. Lucia In the afternoon game Gensan Warriors Burlington turned on the afterburners with a dominant second half performance to take out the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors 91-82. Warrior Juju Bautista had a breakout game with 23 points, about 19 more than his season norm, as the Mindanao team goes to 11-4 and ends a two-game losing streak. Burlington were down 45-37 in the half but whatever pep talk coach Richie Alvarez delivered in the halftime huddle must have worked. They blazed past Pasig in the third period with 28 points as John Orbeta chipped in 8 points, Bautista found the hole with ease and Marlon Basco, Pamboy Raymundo, and Daryl Goloran all connected from beyond the arc. Going into the fourth quarter the Warriors led 65-59. In the payoff canto Goloran, Orbeta and Bautista led a devastating 10-0 run to give the Warriors a 78-64 lead with 6 minutes to play. Realtors Jeric Teng and Josan Nimes tried valiantly to dent the lead, but to no avail. Sta. Lucia see their three-game win tear end as they drop to 9-4 despite Teng's 23 points......»»

Yukien Andrada and Cyrus Llarena wound up with 11 points apiece and each scored nine markers in the traditional powerhouse's 51-33 domination of the middle periods that turned a four-point deficit after the opening salvo into a 67-53 advantage heading into the final frame. Tony Ynot also added an all-around 15 points, five rebounds, five assists, and four steals while Justine Sanchez chimed in 10 markers and seven boards.

UAAP 82: Coach Aldin takes responsibility for UST s collapse vs Adamson

University of Sto. Tomas had a nine-point lead against Adamson University with three minutes remaining in their matchup last Wednesday. Only, the Growling Tigers let their foot off the pedal and allowed the Soaring Falcons to go on a win-stealing 16-0 run. In that run, Val Chauca, Jerrick Ahanmisi, and Jerom Lastimosa all had more than one make - be it from the field or from the line. UST as a team? Zero. Afterwards, head coach Aldin Ayo could only acknowledge that Adamson took that win from them. "Natalo kami kasi mas maganda nilaro sa amin ng Adamson especially sa dulo. Sa parte namin, hindi kami nakapagtapos nang matigas," he said. Of course, the fiery mentor also posted on social media a photo that showed Lastimosa with his arms wrapped around Growling Tiger Renzo Subido who was waiting from an inbound pass from Brent Paraiso in the middle of that Soaring Falcon run. He made it a point to clear, however, that he meant no ill will towards game officials with that post. "Ang purpose lang nun is mapaganda yung tawagan moving forward. Siyempre, gusto nating mas gumanda pa yun sa season," he said. Coach Aldin then furthered that UST's collapse was not because of the referees. "There were bad calls, pero hindi yun dahilan kaya kami natalo. Hindi namain kontrolado yun e, pero yung bagay na kontrolado namin, hindi kasi namin nagawa," he shared. He then continued, "Adamson really outplayed up. No excuses. Adamson really deserved to win." In the end, the one-time NCAA and one-time UAAP champion coach said the blame, whatever it may be, should fall on him. As he put it, "Kung may sisisihin dyan, ako. Ako yung coach e and I take full responsibility for that loss." He then continued, "Dapat mas maganda yung decision-making ko nung dulo. Siyempre, sumusunod sa akin mga players e kaya kung may dapat sisihin dun, yung coach." Even so, coach Aldin also has no doubt that the sorry loss will only make the Growling Tigers hungrier. "Yung mga ganitong klaseng talo will only make us better. Eto yung talong babalikan namin sa practice and we will make sure na hindi na mauulit," he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

PVL: Jet Spikers connect fourth straight win

Air Force made sure that Motolite won’t get a chance to mount another comeback as it completed a 25-22, 25-23, 25-20, sweep on Wednesday to open its second round campaign in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference on a high note at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Lady Jet Spikers racked up four straight victories after starting off their campaign with five consecutive losses and avenged their straight-set loss to Motolite in their first meeting. Air Force took advantage of Motolite’s error-plagued outing and the absence of injured veteran and court leader Myla Pablo (foot injury) to snap its victim’s two-game win run. “Biniro ko nga ‘yung ano kanina eh, biro lang. Sabi ko, ‘straight set yan.’ Siguro nagkataon lang,” said Air Force coach Jasper Jimenez. “Malaking ano rin sa amin na nawala si Myla. Wala masyadong leader sa kanila, isang beterano na superstar pa. Malaking bagay yung leadership ni Myla sa loob. Doon tumaas lalo ang kompiyansa namin.” No one scored in double figures for the Lady Jet Spikers as their offense was well distributed with eight players tallying points. May Ann Pantino and Dell Palomata scored nine markers each while Joy Cases and Judy Ann Caballejo finished with eight and seven points, respectively, for Air Force. The Lady Jet Spikers pulled through in a nip-and-tuck first set. Air Force came back from an 18-22 deficit in the second with a six-point swing to take the set point advantage, 24-22, before sealing the frame. The Lady Jet Spikers kept the Motolite at bay in the third to seal the victory. Tots Carlos posted 21 points in a lost cause for Motolite, which dropped to 6-3 card. Bernadette Flora had eight points while Isa Molde was limited to only six markers after dropping 23 points on Motolite’s five-set come-from-behind win over ChocoMucho last Sunday.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»
