La Salle stays spotless in Filoil Preseason after dropping UE

De La Salle University is yet to falter in the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason. Alvin Pasaol and University of the East did their best, but the Green Archers just leaned on total team effort to fend them off for a 71-62 decision on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Returning player Mark Dyke topped the scoring column for the Taft-based team with 18 points on top of nine rebounds and flanking him were twin towers Taane Samuel and Justine Baltazar who had 12 and 11 markers, respectively. The Red Warriors were still in the game to start the final frame only to see Samuel and Baltazar impose their will inside to fuel La Salle to what was ultimately their fifth win in as many games in the tournament. Pasaol paced UE with 20 points. They put up another good fight which eventually ended as their second straight loss in four starts. Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letran sent a statement to NCAA rival Jose Rizal University with a 23-point beatdown, 94-71. Bong Quinto was unstoppable and finished with 17 points while JP Calvo masterfully orchestrated the attack with 18 markers of his own to go along with seven assists, five rebounds, and two steals to help the Knights improve to 3-2. On the other hand, the Heavy Bombers remained winless through six games despite the best efforts of Darius Estrella who had 17 points to his name. In other results, Adamson University bounced right back into the winners’ circle via a 67-61 victory versus Arellano University while Far Eastern University is still streaking after charging through University of Sto. Tomas, 86-82. BOX SCORES FIRST GAME LETRAN 94- Calvo 18, Quinto 17, Balanza 11, Batiller 10, Ambohot 9, Taladua 8, Fajarito 6, Agbong 5, Balagasay 4, Celis 4, Mandreza 2, Yu 0, Galvelo 0, Pambid 0.

Banks not too keen on Bangko Sentral’s term deposit facility

The central bank's bid to put a firmer lid on the inflation rate ---by siphoning off more idle pesos from the local economy ---was met with lukewarm reception by financial institutions which were unimpressed by the regulator's willingness to pay more for deposits. Data from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) yesterday showed that banks submitted only P98.3 billion worth of tenders for the weekly term deposit facility auction, despite authorities' offer to accept as much as P120 billion. This marked a sharp reversal from the previous week's results where banks scrambled to place as much as P129.7 billion in idle funds in the BSP's vaults where only P80 billion was accepted.

Madrid draws at Villarreal 2-2 before Champions League final

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Real Madrid showed Liverpool its strengths and weaknesses a week before their Champions League final. Madrid squandered first-half goals by Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale in drawing at Villarreal 2-2 on Saturday in its last match before attempting to win Europe's most coveted trophy for a third year in a row. Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane aligned what could be his starting 11 for the final against Liverpool, except for giving 20-year-old son Luca Zidane his competitive debut in goal. Zidane left striker Karim Benzema on his bench in favor of starting Ronaldo and Bale alone up front and playing Francisco "Isco" Alarcon along with Luka Modric and Toni Kroos as playmakers in front of holding midfielder Casemiro. Madrid showed the same dominant form that has taken it to another Champions League final in the first half at Villarreal. But after Ronaldo and Modric were replaced by Benzema and Lucas Vazquez with half an hour remaining, Zidane's bunch displayed the same complacency and faulty defending that scuttled its Liga title defense months ago. The draw in the final round meant Madrid finished the Spanish league in third place behind Atletico Madrid and champion Barcelona. Bale opened the scoring with a solo effort in the 11th minute, and Ronaldo headed in a superb cross by Marcelo just after the half-hour mark. Fifth-place Villarreal outplayed the visitors in the second half and leveled through goals by substitutes Roger Martinez in the 70th and Samuel Castillejo in the 85th. "We played a very, very good first half, with determination, scoring goals, but the second half was the exact opposite," Zidane said. "The important thing is that we didn't have any injuries and can now rest well for next weekend. We are only thinking about winning the final." Bale, who struggled for most of the season to make Zidane's first-choice 11, has finished the season strong and appears to have earned a spot in the Champions League final. His opener against Villarreal, created when he let Modric's pass run through as he spun around his marker, was his 14th goal in the last 10 rounds. "Gareth has never given up," Zidane said. "He has trained well. Nothing has changed. The only difference is that now he is scoring." Ronaldo's goal was his 26th in the league. Barcelona's Lionel Messi leads the competition with 34. Castillejo snatched the draw after he raced behind Marcelo to receive a lobbed pass from Rodrigo Hernandez. Luca Zidane, who normally plays for Madrid's reserve team in the third divison, stopped his initial chipped shot but Castillejo slotted the rebound into the open net. Saudi Arabia midfielder Salem Al Dawsari made his Liga debut as a second-half substitute for Villarreal. ASPAS MAKES HIS CASE Iago Aspas made the most of his last chance to show Spain coach Julen Lopetegui that he deserves a spot on his World Cup squad. The striker scored twice to lead Celta Vigo's 4-2 win over Levante, taking his season tally for the league to 22, the most by a Spanish player. Aspas was regularly chosen by Lopetegui during World Cup qualifying. Celta announced after the match that coach Juan Carlos Unzue will leave the club and break his contract by mutual agreement. OTHER RESULTS Uruguay striker Christian Stuani scored his 20th and 21st goals of the season to lead Girona's 2-1 win at Las Palmas. Leganes fought back while playing with 10 men for over an hour to beat Real Betis 3-2 in a farewell of coach Asier Garitano, who won't stay on after a good season for the modest Madrid club. Wissam Ben Yedder gave Sevilla a 1-0 win over Alaves, and Loic Remy converted a penalty for Getafe to beat Malaga 1-0......»»
