PVL: Tiamzon proves worth for Perlas Spikers

BanKo is enjoying its best start so far in the Premier Volleyball League. Unbeaten in five outings, the Perlas Spikers are on the right track in their quest to capture the elusive title in the second edition of the league’s Open Conference. One player who stood out in BanKo’s romp is veteran hitter Nicole Tiamzon. She may not be as celebrated as other stars but she’s has been consistently proving her worth with her intensity, energy and efficiency. The former University of the Philippines star is averaging 15 points per game as a vital cog on offense, alongside Dzi Gervacio. “Sabi nga ni coach (Dong Dela Cruz) every time kahit sino yung hugutin mo sa bench nakakapag-contribute naman,” said Tiamzon. “So ‘pag binigyan ka ng task, 'pag binigyan ka ng opportunity makapaglaro gawin mo yung part mo, hindi ka man makapatay sa opensa bawi ka sa depensa,” she added. On Wednesday, Tiamzon dropped 20 points in the Perlas Spikers’ 25-21, 23-25, 29-27, 25-18, victory over Tacloban. Tiamzon unleashed 15 attacks, three aces and a pair of kill blocks for BanKo. But Tiamzon was quick to downplay her role in the team, giving credit to her teammates for adhering to their system. “Everyone can contribute, I mean kahit open, or mapa-quick,” she said. “’Yun nga babalik lang din ako doon na everyone can contribute naman.” Tiamzon and the Perlas Spikers will get their toughest test next week when they take on star-studded Creamline. “One week kami walang game, siguro tuloy tuloy lang kami ng training and kailangan lang namin ayusin yung mga kailangan namin ayusin talaga,” she said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP: Juan GDL calls out kuya Javi for corny alley-oop

In the third quarter of the University of the Philippines matchup with National University last Sunday, Javi Gomez de Liano showed that he was much more than a sweet-shooting forward. Caught at the wrong end of a fastbreak, Javi GDL stood his ground before perfectly timing a block on a layup attempt by Reggie Morido. After completing a defensive stop all by his lonesome, the third-year Fighting Maroon, softspoken as he is, let out some emotion. Nah, says Javi Gomez de Liano 😤 #UAAPSeason81 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) Oktubre 7, 2018 Asked about it post-game, he answered, “I just wanted to hype up the crowd. Yun lang.” Hype up the crowd, he did – so much so that, after the block, younger brother Juan came right at him for a GDL celebration. Juan GDL, who has a few highlight blocks of his own, said he was no longer surprised that his kuya did that. “That’s what he does kahit nung high school – he blocks shots, he gets rebounds. You guys shouldn’t be surprised,” he said. What the Season 80 Rookie of the Year didn’t appreciate, however, was how Javi GDL didn’t put an exclamation point on the alley-oop they connected on in the first quarter. “Yung alley-oop? Ang pangit, ni-layup (niya) kahit he was all alone,” he said while laughing. He then continued, “Weak finish, parang, binaby yung shot. Ang corny. Walang thrill.” Juan to Javi GDL brotherly connection 😏 #UAAPSeason81 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) Oktubre 7, 2018 Of course, Juan GDL was just kidding and ribbing his kuya. Turning serious, he said that, as always, he was proud of Javi GDL – though, the former also said that the latter’s breakout game could have been way better. As he put it, “I’m happy that this is his breakout game, but he could have done way better. He also missed free throws and was letting his man get rebounds.” He then continued, “Javi could have easily had a double-double. He could do better.” Know what, Juan? Kuya Javi shares the same sentiments. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo.  .....»»

UAAP: Spa and buffet lead to relaxed basketball from Growling Tigers

The UST Growling Tigers can thank a day away from basketball for playing one for their finest games this UAAP season. As the 19-time UAAP champions' current squad consist a young core, with six rookies at the helm, their tendency is to break down if a fiery coach like Aldin Ayo puts pressure on them. On the day following their devastating 27-point loss against the De La Salle Green Archers at the Mall of Asia Arena, the mentor told his guys to relax and forget hoops for a while, with the dividends clearly showing in UST's win over the UE Red Warriors. "Ang ginawa namin, wala munang basketball. They went to a spa, nag-buffet. After classes, nag-relax ‘yung mga bata. Walang ginawa. They detached themselves from basketball," Ayo said of the move. He then reduced the usual practice time from four to five hours down to merely an hour, with the rest of the time devoted to reviewing film. That, Ayo said, relieved his players of stress and rejuvenated them for Saturday's game. His players then repaid him by raining 16 three-pointers, five more than their two-point conversions. Rookie of the Year candidate CJ Cansino also tallied a huge double-double of 17 points and 17 rebounds, undoubtedly one of the best marks by any player this season. "Na-relax tuloy ‘yung mga bata. I can say that it was effective kasi maganda ‘yung resulta eh. Pero titingnan naming kung ano gagawin namin sa next game namin [vs UP on Wednesday]. Ayo also did his part by not writing marching orders on the whiteboard before the game, "no pointers" as he put it, and noticed that the young Tigers were more relaxed that way.  Even though it worked this time, the former Letran and La Salle coach said that the relaxation approach may not work against every opponent, thus taking it on a case-to-case basis.  "Sabi ni Renzo [Subido], ‘Coach, we overdo it sometimes. Sometimes, sobrang kulang naman. Sabi ko sa kanila, ‘Let’s meet halfway, let’s moderate things.’ Every time we moderate things, nagiging balanse eh. So ‘di naman sobra, ‘di naman kulang. Galing kay Renzo ‘yun.” __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

Duterte hospitalized? 100% not true, Bong Go says

Amid the almost incessant speculations about President Rodrigo Duterte's health, Special Assistant to the President Christopher "Bong" Go on Thursday assured the public that the President is in good shape and such rumor is "100 percent" not true. Duterte's trusted aide even said that he would lay down his own life to prove that the Chief Executive was not admitted to a hospital. Speculations on Duterte's health resurfaced after he skipped his scheduled event with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor) in Malacaang on Wednesday.

PBA: Terrence Romeo cites breath of fresh air as TNT wins third straight

It seems that the TNT KaTropa had found their niche, or so at least according to Terrence Romeo, as his team won their third straight at the expense of the winless NorthPort Batang Pier. Romeo scored 25 points including nine in the fourth quarter, as his team came back from 23 points down in the second quarter, 60-37, and trailed 95-77 in the last eight minutes of the game before stealing the win, 104-102. It is the second game of the new-look coaching staff, which includes head coach Bong Ravena, team consultant Mark Dickel, and returning coach Tab Baldwin. The spitfire point guard says the revamp has helped the team into a renewed sense of purpose. The former FEU standout noted that players had already grown accustomed to their roles and their willingness under a new direction played a key role in their comeback effort, led by Dickel himself. "Talagang simula pagpasok [ni Mark] sa dugout ng first pa lang... first pasok niya sa dugout, talagang sobrang positive na siya hanggang kahit na lamang na yung kalaban, pagpasok niya sa first half, wala siyang pinagalitan, wala siyang sinabing kahit ano," Romeo said of the consultant. Even though the three-time scoring leader looked to have steered the ship to the comeback win, he deflected it to his veteran teammates, who were very vocal along with the coaching staff. Also noticeable is the 5-foot-10 guard's leaner physique, a product of the team's no-carbohydrate diet for the past two weeks. He added that he lost some 15 pounds in two weeks, though he admitted to cheating the system. "No carbs eh sabi, pero syempre minsan, di mo naman.. Kahit ako, di mo na mapipigilan. Sa sobrang hirap ng practice mo, talagang mapapakain ka pa rin ng carbs pag-uwi mo." Romeo also credited the New Zealander's robust practice routine that should help him get in shape for the next season, the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup. "So tinetake advantage ko yun para mag-lose ng weight para mas maging in shape kasi nung early part ng conference nga, kahit nung first conference ko sa All Filipino ba yun.. .All Filipino, wala talaga ako sa shape eh. Tsaka yung practice namin, credit sa coach namin, kay coach Mark. Grabe yung practice namin."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.  .....»»

UAAP: Sisi Rondina s last beach volleyball ride

Gunning for a three-peat in the UAAP beach volleyball tournament, University of Santo Tomas Sand Tigresses Sisi Rondina and Blove Barbon opens their Season 81 in dominating fashion after crushing the University of the Philippines' Isa Molde and Justine Dorog, 21-12, 21-12. The queen of beach volleyball Rondina has partnered with rookie Barbon. The newbie from Bukidnon is Rondina's fourth partner in five years in the sand courts. "Kahit sino naman ang partner ko basta they will play with our school in mind, wala akong problema doon. As long as kaya niyang ipaglaban 'yung school namin," Rondina shared. This comes as no surprise as Rondina has been playing in the sand with different partners almost every year and regardless, she still wins the championship. This season is Rondina's last year to play for UST and she can't help but wax sentimental on her last ride. "For me lang naman, hindi siya pressure, nasa-sad lang ako kasi siyempre last year. Sana makuha namin 'to para maganda 'yung exit. Siyempre, hindi rin kami, ako papayag na aalis akong walang makuha. Tatrabahuhin pa rin namin. Magkakabuhusan na lang talaga," she shared. No worries for Rondina because when rookie Barbon spoke to reporters after their match, she giddily expressed her willingness to help her Ate Sisi. "Kinabahan po kasi first time ko po, rookie po ako. Wala pa po masyadong experience tulad ni Ate Sisi. Tiwala lang po sa sarili na kaya namin, na kaya ko tulungan si Ate Sisi, gawin ko lang yung part ko," said Barbon. But behind that willingness is also an honest nervousness. "Sobrang saya na sobrang pressured kasi yun nga last year na ni Ate, kailangan namin [manalo para] mas maganda yung pag exit niya," said the young player. Who can't blame her? Barbon is partners with arguably the best beach volleyball player to ever grace the Philippines sands......»»

PVL: Almadro to Dani Ravena: Walang duwag na Ravena

If you are not familiar with Oliver Almadro, he was the highly emotional and animated coach of the Ateneo Men's Volleyball Team known for motivational speeches during timeouts and expressive sideline antics. Now, with Almadro taking the head coaching job for the Ateneo Lady Eagles, it's time for women's volleyball to experience the Almadro-brand of motivation. In Ateneo-Motolite's debut match in the PVL Open Conference Sunday afternoon, second year libero Dani Ravena received just that.   "Ravena ka. Walang duwag na Ravena." Coach O tries to inspire Dani mid-game. 🙌 #PVLonABSCBN — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 23, 2018   After consecutive misreceptions by Ravena in the third set versus Pocari-Air Force, Almadro singled her out in this inspirational timeout. "Ravena ka. Walang duwag na Ravena," said Almadro, "You're doing good, believe me." He said this to the youngest of the Ravena siblings who came from a family of athletes. From her father Bong, who was a former UAAP and PBA player and now the head coach of Talk N' Text to her mother Mozzy, who is a former volleyball player and current TV analyst, down to his tremendous baller brothers Kiefer and Thirdy, a lot is expected from Dani. True enough, after that, Ravena and the rest of the Lady Eagles bounced back to take home the match at the fourth set. After the thrilling game, Almadro expressed to reporters that that kind of motivation is something that he is sure to always offer to the Lady Eagles because after all, that is his thing. "Siguro [gumana], kasi nakabalik eh," he said with a chuckle, "Siguro nakatulong yon. Sana mga ganun ko, alam niyo naman hyper ako eh, sana yung mga ganun ko mag click sa utak nila." "Wala naman talagang Ravenang duwag eh, tama naman," he added. Fans on Twitter also took delight in that moment of Almadro and Ravena. For a while, that timeout trended.   “Ravena ka! Walang duwag na Ravena!” - Coach Oliver to Dani Ravena#LabanAteneo — Team Ateneo (@AteneOBF) September 23, 2018   Gusto kong maiyak sa pa-pep talk ni Kowcho kay Dani. “You’re good!

NCAA: Jayvee Marcelino suffers deep cut on his face

With 8:35 left in the fourth quarter, Lyceum of the Philippines University's defensive guard Jayvee Marcelino fell on the floor with a bloody face after being inadvertently hit on the left side by the University of Perpetual Help's Rom Mangalino's elbow.   Jayvee Marcelino goes down and is bloodied after an accidental elbow. (⚠️ Warning: Graphic Image) #NCAASeason94 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 21, 2018   He was brought out of the court and was never able to come back since then. Marcelino just waited until the game ended and was eventually brought to St. Luke's Medical Center to have his cut stitched. "Sana walang fracture, ang lalim eh," said head coach Topex Robinson. Team officials and teammates rushed to Marcelino, who was grimacing in pain as his face bleed profusely near the half court. Unfortunately, aside from Marcelino's cut, Lyceum had to endure their first loss of the season after a 12-game winning streak. This is also their first loss in the elimination round since NCAA Season 92 last year. "[Perpetual] really played tremendous basketball, they stuck till the end. It could happen to anybody. We're not invincible. At the end of the day, life goes on for us. We're more worried about Jayvee [Marcelino] because of the cut, that's our primary concern right now," Robinson added......»»
