PBA: OK kami ni Coach Yeng -- Erram

Poy Erram extinguished rumors that he and head coach Yeng Guiao are not seeing eye to eye amid the trade talks that would ship the NLEX big man to TNT Katropa. The 6-foot-7 reigning Defensive Player of the Year on Wednesday set the record straight that there is no truth in the issue. “’Di totoo ‘yun,” said Erram after the Road Warriors’ 104-89 win over Alaska in a pocket tournament at the Upper Deck in Pasig City. “Basta di totoo yun, OK kami ni Coach Yeng.” “Nagkwentuhan pa nga kami kaninang umaga eh,” he added. “Masaya kaming dalawa. Wala kaming alitan. Never kaming magkakaroon ng ganoon.” Erram is in the midst of a three-team trade talks with TNT Katropa and Blackwater as conduit that has undergone some revisions. Rumors arose that his transfer was due to a falling-out with a very volatile Guiao, who gave Erram an earful in one game last year. “So just to set the record straight, wala kaming pinag-awayan ni Poy,” said Guiao, who said in a previous interview that he doesn’t want to see Erram shipped to another team. “You can ask him if he's happy here or if he's not.” “But we are happy with him, I think he's happy with us. That's not the reason for the trade,” added the mentor. Erram still joined NLEX in their training and tune-up match although he sat out the match against the Aces. “Wala pa rin naming lumalabas na kahit ano kaya hangga’t walang lumalabas pupunta pa rin ako ng maaga [sa practice], shooting. Ginagawa ko pa rin anng daily routine ko” said Erram. “Siyempre ayoko naman na magtanga-tangahan din, maghintay-hintay din [kasi] mawawala rin ako sa kondisyon. Kasi if ever na di matuloy, tuloy ako sa NLEX walang problema.” For Guiao, Erram, who averaged 11.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.1 blocks in his first year with NLEX after moving from Blackwater, is still a Road Warrior. “We still consider him as part of the team until may final ano na run sa trade. But we're just trying to relish our last few days together,” said Guiao. “Siya talagang nagpupunta siya sa practice, gusto niya pa makasama ‘yung mga teammates niya even though he knows there's a pending development.” “But he comes to practice really just really doesn't miss anything even itong game hindi niya alam kung maglalaro siya o hindi, dumating pa rin siya. This morning we had an 8-10 practice, andun pa rin siya,” Guiao added. Pending the final decision, Erram still knows what team he is with. “Alam ko kung saang team ako, NLEX pa rin ako eh. Yun pa rin ang team na gusyto ko. Yun pa rin ang gusto ni coach Yeng. Hanggang ngayon NLEX pa rin,” he said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UAAP Season 82: UE dominates collegiate fencing anew

University of the East reigned supreme in the men's division for the eighth straight year while its women's squad regained the throne Friday in the UAAP Season 82 collegiate fencing tournament at the Paco Arena. The Red Warriors bested Ateneo de Manila University, 45-42, in the men's team foil finals to complete a five-gold, one-silver medal haul for their 14th title overall. Sammuel Tranquilan exited UE as a winner, capturing his third straight MVP award.. "Marami naman tayong mga rising stars na parating. Tuloy-tuloy naman kaming nagte-training mula sa ilalim. Yung transition talaga namin, malalim," said UE coach Amatov Canlas. A good example is Rookie-MVP winner Queendenise Dalmacio, who led the Lady Warriors in collecting four golds, one silver, and three bronze medals to claim a league-best 13th crown. "Actually, magkaka-batch iyan. Sina Queen at Sam (Catantan). Sabay-sabay iyan noong time na ni-recruit ko sila noong mga bata pa talaga ang mga iyan," said Canlas, who also handled the national team that won two gold medals in the 30th Southeast Asian Games. "Tumaas din ang level ni Queen magmula noong nakapasok siya sa national team. Naglaro siya ng SEA Games kaya iba na ang mental toughness niya," he added. The 20-year old Dalmacio was impressive, especially in ruling the women's individual saber event on the second day of competition. "Hindi ko nga inaasahan na magiging Rookie-MVP siya. Deserved naman niya talaga iyan," said Canlas. UE topped De La Salle University, 45-36, in the women's team epee Finals and returned in the afternoon with a 45-19 conquest of University of Santo Tomas in the women's team saber gold medal match. "Happy ako sa performance ng team. Taon-taon naman ganito ang nangyari," said Canlas. The Blue Eagles finished second in the men's side with a 1-3-2 haul, while the Green Archers had a 0-1-5 tally in third place. De La Salle took the runner-up honors with 1-2-1, while last season's champion Ateneo settled for third with 1-1-2......»»

UAAP 82: Incoming Penn State fencer Catantan leads UE to a nine-peat

University of the East fashioned out a UAAP Season 82 high school fencing golden double Friday at the Paco Arena. The Junior Warriors gave Samantha Catantan a fitting send-off by winning a ninth consecutive girls crown, while their boys' team achieved a 10-peat. Behind Catantan's heroics, UE rallied past University of Santo Tomas, 45-44, in the girls' team saber final and completed a six-gold sweep with a 45-30 win over UST in the girls' team epee final. An Asian U23 gold medalist who will play for US NCAA Division I's Penn State in college, Catantan emerged as the MVP once more, leaving a lasting legacy for the Junior Warriors' program. "Sobrang layo na ng narating na ni Sam," said UE coach Amatov Canlas. "From UE, to UAAP, tapos na-discover siya sa US, pupunta sa magandang school. Hindi lang Penn State ang nag-recruit sa kanya. Maraming school. Pero ang sabi ko sa kanya mas maganda sa Penn State, gagaling at tataas ang level mo.” UST and De La Salle-Zobel finished second (0-3-6) and third (0-0-3), respectively. In the boys' division, MVP Shawn Felipe powered UE to a 45-9 dismantling of UST in the team foil final to cap a scintillating five-gold romp. The Junior Warriors, who also captured two silvers and two bronzes, clinched their 10th straight boys crown as early as last Thursday. Ateneo added a boys' team foil bronze to its 1-1-4 haul to finish second while Far Eastern University-Diliman completed the podium with a 0-2-1 tally......»»

Butler returns to lead Heat past Warriors, 113-101

MICHAEL WAGAMAN Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jimmy Butler had 21 points and 10 rebounds in his return to Miami’s lineup, and the Heat won in Andre Iguodala’s first game back in the Bay Area, thumping the Golden State Warriors 113-101 on Monday night. Butler was crisp after sitting out the previous two games with a right shoulder strain. The All-Star forward scored 13 points in the first half, shot 9 of 15 overall and had five assists to help the Heat end a three-game skid. Jae Crowder added 21 points and eight rebounds. Bam Adebayo had 13 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. Kelly Olynyk had 12 points and a career-high 11 assists. Iguodala, a key member of the Warriors' three championship teams from 2015-18, had two points and five rebounds in 17 minutes against his former team. Damion Lee scored 26 points with five 3-pointers for Golden State (12-42). The loss ends the Warriors' five-year streak of finishing .500 or better. The Heat led comfortably most of the game to win for the first time on their six-game road trip that stretches beyond the All-Star break. Crowder, who had 18 points in his Miami debut against Portland on Sunday, made a step-back 3-pointer that put the Heat up by 18 midway through the second quarter. Olynyk later added another 3-pointer that made it 52-31. Golden State trailed by 24 but got within 73-69 following three free throws by Lee. Miami pulled away early in the fourth quarter, getting a dunk from Iguodala and back-to-back 3s by Robinson and Crowder. TIP-INS Heat: Crowder scored 16 points in the first half. … Miami won in the Bay Area for the first time since Feb. 12, 2014. The Heat had lost five straight road games to Golden State. Warriors: Thompson and Draymond Green, along with injured teammate Stephen Curry, are among the finalists for the 2020 U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team. FAMILIAR FACE, NOW FOE During a brief pregame ceremony, injured Golden State star Klay Thompson introduced Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals MVP who was greeted by a standing ovation from the crowd. “I can’t wait to see your jersey in the rafters,” Thompson said. Iguodala, in his second game with the Heat, tried to keep his return to the Bay Area in perspective. “I haven’t had a chance to let it be something that is overwhelming,” Iguodala said. “I just see it as another game on the schedule. It’s more important for the team so it’s actually helping me, if not allowing me, to not let it seem like a different type of situation.” Iguodala was greeted with a rousing ovation from the crowd when he checked into the game in the first quarter. UP NEXT Heat: Face the Jazz in Utah on Wednesday in their final game before the All-Star break. Warriors: Play at Phoenix on Wednesday. The teams split a pair of games in San Francisco earlier this season......»»

Blazers beat Heat 115-109 in Iguodala s debut for Miami

  BY ERIK GARCÍA GUNDERSEN Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 33 points and eight assists, Gary Trent Jr. scored 22 points and the Portland Trail Blazers beat Miami 115-109 on Sunday night in Andre Iguodala's debut with the Heat. Iguodala had two points in his first game since the NBA Finals. Hassan Whiteside had 11 points and 17 rebounds against his former team, including an pair of free throws with 11.5 seconds left that gave Portland a seven-point lead. Goran Dragic had 27 points for Miami, which played without Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro. Duncan Robinson had 19 points, but just four after halftime. Iguodala, acquired from Memphis before the trade deadline, made his Miami debut in the first quarter, wearing No. 28. He made an impact with a block of Portland’s Mario Hezonja. In the second quarter, Hezonja sprained his left ankle and did not return, leaving Portland with just eight available players. After a foul was called on Lillard with 0.9 seconds left in the third quarter, Blazers coach Terry Stotts challenged the call. The call was overturned after the review, which showed a clean block by Lillard and a loose ball foul on Dragic. Lillard made both free throws to give the Blazers a 93-83 lead heading into the final period. Iguodala began the fourth quarter with an assist to Chris Silva on an alley-oop. A steal by Iguodala on the next possession led to Robinson's 3-pointer, forcing a Blazers timeout with 11:01 left. Carmelo Anthony drew a technical foul with 6:03 left and Robinson made the free throw to cut Portland’s lead to 99-94. A free throw by Whiteside gave Portland a 111-103 lead with 90 seconds left. Bam Adebayo's layup cut the Blazers' lead to 111-108 with 46 seconds left. However, Lillard answered back with a layup of his own to push the lead back to 113-108 with 25 seconds left. After the Heat had three opportunities to cut into the lead, Whiteside grabbed the rebound and was fouled. TIP-INS Heat: Sunday was the first game for the Heat with new additions Iguodala and Jae Crowder. Iguodala hasn’t played a game since the NBA Finals last June with the Warriors, but the 2015 Finals MVP has plenty of respect in the league still. “I see a winning player,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. “He is an experienced, winning player. A very good wing defender. I think he complements the Miami roster really well, with the versatility that he brings at both ends.” Trail Blazers: Lillard's recent sizzling stretch caught the eye of Miami coach Eric Spoelstra. “It’s been a little bit of a habit of mine,” he said. “We play our game East Coast time and I throw on a West Coast game and it usually ends on Portland for the last two weeks with what this guy has been doing. The whole league has been watching. They’re in a desperate situation trying to make the playoffs. You have to respect the urgency and toughness and focus that they are going to bring into every single game.” Lillard had averaged over 41 points per game over the past 10 games entering Sunday. UP NEXT Heat: Monday night at Golden State Warriors. Trail Blazers: Tuesday night at New Orleans Pelicans......»»
