Ateneo takes fight out of UST to stay spotless in PCCL

SJ Belangel brought the big guns for the second straight game in the 2020 Philippine Collegiate Champions League NCAA-UAAP Challenge while Ange Kouame brought the finishing kick as Ateneo de Manila University triumphed over University of Sto. Tomas, 82-71, in a tight tiff in the middle of the Filoil Flying V Centre on Sunday. Belangel dropped 26 points built on six triples, all while showing the Blue Eagles the way to yet another convincing victory versus the Growling Tigers whom they downed int eh Finals of last year's UAAP Men's Basketball Tournament. The third-year guard was on-point from the get-go and already had seven points in their 12-3 start that eventually became a 27-10 edge. When UST threatened in the final frame, however, it was Kouame who imposed his will and had four points in Ateneo's 11-0 run that re-increased a three-point lead into an 82-68 advantage inside the last two minutes. "Tough game. Rough game. I think it's two pretty good teams out there who are not in midseason form," Coach Tab Baldwin said as the game became more intense as it went along and in the end, saw a total of 64 fouls called. In the end, the Ivorian tower tallied 15 points, 13 rebounds, and five blocks to help lift his team to the first slot in the PCCL Final Four. The Blue Eagles also got much-welcome contributions from Troy Mallillin and Geo Chiu with the former finishing with seven points and six rebounds in just 14 minutes and the latter ending with five markers and seven boards in 11 minutes. On the other hand, the Growling Tigers were fronted by Deo Cuajao and Rhenz Abando who scored 14 points apiece. With UAAP MVP Soulemane Chabi Yo limited to only five points and six rebounds, however, they suffer their first setback in two tries. BOX SCORES ATENEO 82 - Belangel 26, Kouame 15, D.

NCAA Season 95: San Beda’s challenge fuels Arellano

Arellano University coach Obet Javier let his Lady Chiefs know during practice that San Beda University wanted to bring them down. The mentor lit a fire that served as three-time defending champion Arellano U’s motivation in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition on Monday. The Lady Chiefs got word that the Lady Red Spikers’ court leader Cesca Racraquin, looking to fire up her team, and San Beda were all looking forward for the marquee duel – a rematch of last year’s Final Four - between two unbeaten teams. “’Yung sa sinabi sa amin ni Cesca po inaantay nya po kami na makalaban. Parang gustong-gusto nya po kaming talunin,” said reigning Most Valuable Player Necole Ebuen. Arellano U accepted San Beda’s challenge and responded with a dominating performance to preserve their perfect record for the solo lead.    Ebuen and Regine Arocha, who saw action despite feeling under the weather, came through with an inspired game to lead the Lady Chiefs to a 25-20, 25-21, 25-22 win over the same team that denied them a chance of an outright Finals berth last year. “Nung training po namin kahapon, siyempre po si Ate Regine, nawala sa training namin. Yun mga natira po nag-focus po talaga sa amin si Coach Obet na, ‘mag-focus kayo na kailangang talunin nyo yung gustong talunin kayo,’” said Ebuen. “Parang gigil na gigil po sa amin. Kumbaga kami po di naman kami nanggigil sa kanila, hinayaan lang po namin sila na manggigil sila sa amin.” The Lady Red Spikers gave a decent fight with Racraquin and Nieza Viray at the helm but their efforts weren’t enough to save San Beda from having its three-game winning snapped. Javier’s post-practice pep talk did wonders for the Lady Chiefs, who before taking on San Beda allowed winless San Sebastian College to steal a set from them last Saturday. “So maganda rin naman yun para malaman din ng team ko na, ‘Uy, tsina-challenge tayo ng opponent so i-grab natin. Bigyan natin ng magandang laban ang kalaban natin,’” Javier said. The Lady Chiefs will face streaking University of Perpetual Help on Wednesday in a rematch of last year’s championship series.     ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Bullpups stay spotless, Baby Tams still streaking in UAAP 82

STANDINGS Bullpups 5-0 Baby Tamaraws 4-1 Baby Falcons 3-2 Blue Eaglets 3-2 Tiger Cubs 2-3 Jr. Archers 2-3 Jr. Warriors 1-4 Jr. Maroons 0-5 Nazareth School of National University went all-out to make sure it didn’t suffer the same fate that befell new-age rival Ateneo de Manila High School in the continuing UAAP 82 Boys’ Basketball Tournament. With Kevin Quiambao towering above all and everybody else taking care of their own business, the Bullpups made quick work of University of the East, 91-49, Wednesday at Paco Arena. Quiambao was a force with a 15-point, 15-rebound double-double while Ernest Felicilda and Reyland Torres also added 12 and 11 markers, respectively, to make sure the Bullpups stayed away from the upset ax. Just four days ago, the Jr. Warriors pulled the rug from under the favored Blue Eaglets. There was no such thing happening to National U as Carl Tamayo and Terrence Fortea didn’t even have to do much with all 16 players fielded in by head coach Goldwin Monteverde contributing in the scoring column. Still, coach Gold saw much room for improvement at the other end. “Okay naman shooting namin, but yung defense namin, wala pa dun,” he said. That defense actually suffocated the Jr. Warriors to just 26 percent shooting from the field and yet, the softspoken shot-caller wants much more from his wards moving forward from their 5-0 start to the season. Right behind the Bullpups in the standings is Far Eastern University-Diliman which charged through very game University of Sto. Tomas, 80-73. Penny Estacio stuffed the stat sheet with 21 points, five assists, five steals, and four rebounds while backcourt partner Jorick Bautista had his own 19 markers, six dimes, five boards, and two pilfers. With those two at the controls, the Baby Tamaraws ran circles around their opponents for a 28-6 edge in transition en route to their fourth win in a row following a season-opening loss. Bouncing back onto the win column is Ateneo de Manila High School courtesy of a 99-70 rout of the University of the Philippines Integrated School. Transferees Lebron Lopez and Josh Lazaro were big in the Blue Eaglets’ bounce back to 3-2 with the former finishing with 20 points, three rebounds, and three blocks and the latter ending with 17 markers and 13 boards. In the day’s other game, Adamson High School dropped a 32-point hammer on De La Salle Zobel, 89-57. Marcus Nitura busted out with 21 points to lead the Baby Falcons to back-to-back wins and a 3-2 standing. The Tiger Cubs, who suffered a second straight setback to fall to 2-3, were paced by Jacob Cortez who had 23 points while the Jr. Archers, sporting the same slate, were paced by Kean Baclaan and John Dalisay who had nine markers apiece. Meanwhile, Jericho Montecalvo had 14 markers to front the effort for UE even though they dropped down to 1-4 and Ray Torres showed the way for UPIS with 21 markers even though they remained winless in five games.

THROWBACK: The stunning San Beda-Letran Finals face-off in Season 91

With yet another important milestone in its more than a decade-long dominance in the NCAA, the San Beda University Red Lions seek their fourth straight men’s basketball crown in Season 95. But in their roar to four, San Beda would face not just an old rival, but also a heartbreaking tormentor in the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights, which denied them a colossal, record-setting six-peat in Season 91.  While carrying a spotless 18-0 slate behind MVP Calvin Oftana, Evan Nelle, James Canlas-Kwekuteye and coach Boyet Fernandez that forced the stepladder semifinals, wherein Letran emerged as the rightful finals contender, carried by skipper Jerrick Balanza, Fran Yu, Larry Muyang, and coach Bonnie Tan, with victories over San Sebastian and Lyceum, San Beda would dread a repeat of that debacle.  But definitely, the veteran Knight Balanza, moreso AC Soberano and Donald Tankoua of the present San Beda roster, along with the 20,158 individuals inside the venue couldn’t forget that long, grueling championship night on October 29, 2015 at the Mall of Asia Arena. Storied nemeses They were already part of their respective varsity rosters, with the Knights coached then by Aldin Ayo and the Red Lions mentored at that time by Jamike Jarin, when the storied nemeses met in Game 3 of the Season 91 Finals that fateful Thursday. In each of their two previous successive Finals meetings in Seasons 88 and 89 with mostly the same lineup, the Knights would bow in three games to the Red Lions, which claimed their third and fourth consecutive titles since 2010. The first San Beda-Letran NCAA Finals match in half a century happened in 2007, with San Beda winning the crown—the Red Lions’ second straight title then after a 28-year title drought. After San Beda took its fifth straight title at the expense of the Arellano Chiefs in 2014, Letran got the chance to face the Red Lions again in the Finals of Season 91, and they would go all-out to stop their bitter rival’s date with history. A six-peat? No way, the Knights would assert in their march onto the Best-of-Three with a more formidable team under the new aggressive young coach Ayo, a former Letran player, in their bid to notch its first NCAA finals victory over the Red Lions since the heydays of the Lauro Mumar vs Carlos Loyzaga duel in the 1950s. And in the Season 91 Finals, Letran took the first game, 94-90, but San Beda emerged victorious in the second, 68-61, arranging the winner-take-all. Moment of truth When that moment of truth came, the Red Lions were reenergized with their Game 2 win and became confident in snagging that sixth straight title. Faced with this, however, the Knights remained solid and unperturbed in their iron-clad “Mayhem” armor. True enough, San Beda was shut out of focus in the beginning, as the Knights romped with a raging run-and-gun, leaving the Red Lions scoreless in a key stretch, 8-0, for a 16-7 early lead. Javee Mocon and Michole Sorela would finally provide the needed stops and lead a spirited comeback for the Red Lions. But Letran’s Rey Nambatac would drop a clutch basket to give the Knights an eight-point advantage at the end of the first quarter, 20-12. JP Calvo would continue Letran’s scorching offense in the second quarter, instigating a 10-0 run in the first minutes. But San Beda will answer a 5-0 spurt of its own behind Tankoua and Soberano’s steady shooting and consistency in the charity lane. The Knights’ high-octane offense held the Red Lions at bay, but the Mendiola dribblers’ 11-of-15 free throws would still keep Muralla cagers within striking distance. By the 1:14 mark, Roldan Sara converted a triple to give San Beda its first taste of the lead, 39-38, but Nambatac provided Letran the marginal lead at halftime with his two free throws, 40-39. See-saw battle The Lions would take over at the start of the third quarter, behind a string of baskets from Mocon and Art dela Cruz. The Knights, however, would answer with a nine-point blitz from Jomari Sollano to wrest the lead back at 51-48. Mocon would extend the see-saw battle with a putback and free throws, 52-51. But a 3-0 spurt, capped off by Kier Quinto’s twinner at the end of the period still placed Letran on top at the end of the third quarter, 54-52. By the first few minutes of the final canto, San Beda seemed frustrated by Letran’s incredible defensive game. And the Knights would dictate the tempo, preventing the Red Lions to wrest control. Letran’s offensive might was also a big factor, with Kevin Racal sinking back-to-back threes, halfway in the fourth.  Graduating players Baser Amer and Ola Adeogun would prevent a Letran pull away, keeping it a manageable four-point deficit, 60-64. But after Racal and Finals MVP Cruz’s assault from three-point land gave Letran what seemed an insurmountable 75-67 lead with 1:53 left, the Knights were silenced by a shocking 8-0 barrage by the Red Lions at the end of regulation, with Amer scoring the equalizer, 13.5 seconds left, to send the game to overtime.  Extended play During the extended play, Amer scored off a gallant incursion to pad an 82-79 lead, 1:28 remaining, setting off wild chants from the San Beda gallery. But these were then muted after four unanswered points coming from Racal’s two charities off an Adeogun foul and Sollano’s midrange jumper after a 24-second violation by the Red Lions, that put Letran in the lead once more, 83-82, with 32.6 seconds left. After successive misses by Amer and Dela Cruz, Adeogun fouled Sollano as the Knights regained possession, and the Letran center marched to the charity lane for two free throws with six seconds left. Sollano would sink the first, and flub the second. In the battle for the rebound, Letran’s McJour Luib and San Beda’s Dela Cruz were then assessed a controversial double-lane violation by referee Nestor Sambrano, who awarded ball possession to the Knights under FIBA rules of “alternating possession.” With 3.7 seconds left to play, and Letran leading at 84-82, Sara had no other choice but to foul Cruz, who would also split his charities.  First title in 10 years, championship steak ended Sorela would then miss a desperation attempt near mid-court as time expired, sending the Letran crowd to a frenzy, with the Knights bagging its first title in 10 years, breaking the hearts of Bedans everywhere as the Red Lions’ five-year championship streak has ended. Racal would top-score for the Knights with 24 markers, most of which in that key stretch in the endgame. Sollano had his career game of 19 points and seven rebounds, Cruz finishing with 14, and Nambatac, 13. Dela Cruz would lead the Red Lions with a near triple-double of 15 points, 13 rebounds, and eight assists. He added a steal and two blocks in his incredible all-around game. Adeogun completed his duty in San Beda with a monster double-double of 13 points and 13 rebounds. Fellow outgoing Lion Amer chipped in 14 points, which was similar to the output of the prolific Mocon. Will San Beda avenge this heartbreaking loss in their first Finals rematch against Letran since Season 91 and assert its remarkable dynasty or will the Knights frustrate the Red Lions anew and waylay them in an NCAA men’s basketball championship series for the second time in a row?  Watch Game 1 of the NCAA Season 95 Finals between the San Beda Red Lions and the Letran Knights starting on Tuesday, November 12, at the Mall of Asia Arena and live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, TFC.tv, TFC, iWant and livestream......»»

Mapua gets through EAC to get to greater heights in NCAA 95

Mapua University started slow, but finished fine, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre, to score a 79-76 triumph over Emilio Aguinaldo College and go streaking anew in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Cardinals caught fire in the last eight minutes with Noah Lugo, Laurenz Victoria, and Cyril Gonzales conniving for a 15-2 run that erased a two-point deficit, 60-62, and erected a 75-64 advantage with 4:19 remaining. "Credit sa EAC kasi ready talaga sila. Mas aggressive sila nung start so nung second half, sinabi ko sa kanilang kailangang matapatan namin yung energy nila," head coach Randy Alcantara said. Still, the Generals kept coming and Marwin Taywan’s short stab pulled them within 76-78 with 46.8 ticks to go on the clock only to see Mapua dig deep and stand strong until the final buzzer. In that last possession, they held on for the win after forcing Taywan and JP Maguliano into two forced shots each. Warren Bonifacio finally got the rebound for the Cardinals after the last miss, his 10th of the game to go along with 13 points, and passed the ball to Lugo. Not long after, the veteran guard was sent to the line where he made the first and missed the second. The rebound, though, went to Justin Serrano who sealed the deal in the red and gold's back-to-back wins - which they got even without super rookie Paolo Hernandez who was out due to a knee injury and even after losing Victoria to an apparent foot injury late. Victoria still wound up with 11 points on top of six rebounds and three assists while Lugo had 16 markers, four boards, and two dimes of his own to make sure their side built on its momentum from its big-time double-overtime victory versus Colegio de San Juan de Letran a week ago. More than the latest win run, Mapua has now won five of its last six to ascend to the sixth spot in the standings at 5-6. "One game at a time pa rin kasi kung titingnan mo, kaya naman. Kailangan lang maging consistent kami sa ginagawa namin," coach Randy said. Maguliano topped the scoring column for EAC with 15 points while Taywan also added 13 markers, six rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Unable to complete the comeback, however, they lost for the 10th time in a row and 11th overall in 12 games.

NCAA 95: Marcelino-led LPU puts a stop to CSB s best-ever start

Lyceum of the Philippines University still has the number of TY Tang-coached College of St. Benilde - even now in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament. With Jaycee Marcelino captaining the wrecking crew, the Pirates powered their way right through the Blazers, 74-71, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. After a tight first half, Marcelino just turned it on in the third, propelling his side to a 68-48 edge after scoring 10 of his 23 points in the quarter. The Taft-based team, however, would battle back to within four, 70-74, inside the last two minutes. "We have to give credit to CSB. They just kept on pursuing us," coach Topex Robinson said post-game. The LPU defense stood strong from that point, however, and allowed no more makes from the field. CSB inched closer to just down three with 3.7 ticks to go on the clock after Chris Flores was sent to the line and sent in his first free throw. Flores intentionally muffed on the second to keep the door open for his side, but it was Mike Nzeusseu who collared the rebound, finishing the job once and for all for the Pirates. In the end, Nzeusseu posted a 17-point, 16-rebound double-double to help the Intramuros-based squad to their fifth win in a row and sixth overall in seven games. "We'll always take this win. I'm happy that the boys got it," coach Topex said. This latest decision keeps LPU undefeated against the TY Tang-coached Blazers. This latest decision also just happened to put the first blemish on the once spotless slate of the green and white. Off to their best-ever start in school history, CSB suffered its first setback as top gun Justin Gutang was held in check, only with six points in 1-of-7 shooting to go along with eight rebounds and eight assists. In his stead, Cameroonian Clement Leutcheu topped the scoring column with 15 points on top of nine rebounds and two steals. BOX SCORES LPU 74 - Marcelino JC 23, Nzeusseu 17, Santos 7, Caduyac 6, Marcelino JV 6, Tansingco 6, Yong 4, Pretta 3, David 2, Navarro 0, Ibanez 0, Valdez 0, Guinto 0 CSB 71 - Leutcheu 15, Nayve 11, Haruna 9, Gutang 6, Dixon 6, Flores 6, Pasturan 5, Naboa 5, Sangco 4, Lepalam 2, Belgica 2, Young 0, Carlos 0 QUARTER SCORES: 22-23, 43-36, 68-51, 74-71 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Impact rookies allow Mapua to gun down EAC, go streaking in NCAA 95

All of a sudden, Mapua University has gone streaking in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament, adding Emilio Aguinaldo College to its just recently created list of victims via a 76-66 victory, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Cardinals actually found themselves in a close contest after two quarters and were only up by one, 35-34, early in the third. It was at that point, though, that they unleashed a terrifying 21-0 tear that blew the game wide open in their favor courtesy of a 56-34 lead late in the quarter. The Generals would not be able to threaten the rest of the way. With the double-digit decision, Mapua has now won its last two games. This, after starting the season with five losses in a row. "Hopefully, makatulong itong dalawang sunod na panalo," first lieutenant Yong Garcia said post-game. "Galing kami sa 0-5, down ang mga bata, pero ang focus lang namin is one game at a time." Just like in their breakthrough win just last Saturday, Laurenz Victoria was key in this one, dropping all but three of his 10 points in their massive surge in the third quarter. He was then flanked by prized rookies Cyril Gonzales and Paolo Hernandez with the former finishing with 13 points and three rebounds and the latter ending with 11 markers, three boards, two assists, and two steals. There's bad news for the Cardinals, however, as, with the decision no longer in question, Jasper Salenga incurred a disqualifying foul. That means he will have to serve a one-game suspension in their next outing opposite Jose Rizal University on Friday. "Disappointed si coach Randy sa last part ng game," coach Yong said, also explaining that head coach Randy Alcantara decided to go directly into the locker room to talk to his wards rather than go to the customary post-win interview. " Ginusto niyang bigyan ng chance yung iba para mabigyan ng confidence, pero 'di naging maganda ang resulta." For EAC, JC Luciano topped the scoring column with 12 points to go along with seven rebounds. At the wrong end of that terrifying tear in the third quarter, however, they absorbed their sixth loss in seven games. BOX SCORES MAPUA 76 - Gonzales 13, Hernandez 11, Victoria 10, Bonifacio 8, Serrano 8, Lugo 7, Garcia 5, Gamboa 4, Salenga 4, Bunag 2, Jabel 2, Nieles 2, Aguirre 0, Dela Cruz 0, Nocum 0.

Valenzuela the hero as Greenies hand Red Cubs their first loss in NCAA 95

STANDINGS CSB-LSGH 4-1 San Beda 4-1 Arellano 4-1 JRU 4-3 LPU 3-2 Perpetual 3-3 San Sebastian 2-3 Letran 2-4 Mapua 1-4 EAC 1-5 Lennox Valenzuela's floater over the outstretched arms of two defenders proved to be the difference for College of St. Benilde-La Salle Green Hills in their thrilling 99-98 overtime triumph over San Beda High School in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. The Jr. Blazers were chasing down a one-point deficit with 6.6 ticks to go on the clock of the extra period and, with top gun RC Calimag covered, Valenzuela took matters into his own hands - driving from behind the arc to the free throw line before rising for a one-hander that went over the heads of Red Cubs Hans Nicdao and Charles Delfino. Not long after, the ball bounced around the ring and then fell into the net, capping off the defensive-minded guard's 23-point, five-rebound, three-steal, two-assist performance. San Beda still had 2.2 seconds to make something happen, but Delfino's halfcourt heave was too strong. That game-winner scored for CSB-LSGH its third win in a row and fourth overall in five games in the season. Along with that, that game-winner also eventually ended as the first blemish on the once spotless slate of the Red Cubs Valenzuela would not have had the chance for that floater, though, if not for the efforts of Calimag who dropped 15 of his 30 points in the final frame which witnessed the Jr. Blazers' furious fightback. Rookies Jiam Quiambao and Jan Manansala were also key as the former finished with 12 points and four rebounds while the latter ended with 10 markers, nine boards, and three blocks. The green and white have now rolled to the front of the pack - with back-to-back wins against defending champion Mapua High School and then erstwhile league-leader San Beda The Red Cubs retained a share of first, also with a 4-1 standing, even after main man Rhayyan Amsali was limited to just six points in 2-of-10 shooting to go along with six assists and four rebounds as well as seven turnovers. In his stead, Yukien Andrada showed the way with a 21-marker, 10-board double-double. Meanwhile, University of Perpetual Help arrested its three-game slump via a 67-62 victory versus San Sebastian College-Recoletos. Emman Galman top-scored with 23 points, but it was Shawn Orgo who came up clutch in the endgame, scoring five of his 12 points in the last two minutes to shoot the Jr. Altas back into the win column now at 3-3. On the other hand, the Staglets suffered their second straight setback and third overall in five games even after Milo Janao's 20 points and Kim Bulasa's 19 markers.

MPBL: Late Ayonayon barrage rescues San Juan in OT win over Bataan

San Juan Go For Gold proved they have the heart of a champion by coming from behind late to beat the Bataan Risers, 87-79, in overtime in Saturday's Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season play date. The crowd at the Ibalong Centrum for Recreation in Legazpi City was treated to a clutch performance by San Juan's Mike Ayonayon, who caught fire late, sealing the victory and keeping their slate spotless at 7-0. "Sobrang pangit ang laro ko noong first half. So pinaninindigan ko lang mga tira ko, bahala na. Eh sakto, na-shoot," said the former PCU Dolphin, who finished with 18 points, 15 in the second half and OT. San Juan took a 34-32 halftime lead thanks in large part to John Wilson's 14 first-half points. The former NCAA MVP nailed half of his eight three-point attempts. Wilson led all scorers with 22 points. Bataan started the third with an 8-0 run to seize the initiative and finished the period 53-46 up with the help of CJ Isit and Jai Reyes. A triple by Reyes and then a bucket by Mar Villahermosa put the Risers up 72-61 with just over two minutes left and San Juan's immaculate record looked in jeopardy. However, Ayonayon answered the call with two triples and nine points in the end of regulation, none bigger than a baseline jumper to knot the game at 72-72 with 3.5 ticks and send the game into an extension. San Juan spotted Bataan a 75-72 lead then bossed overtime with big baskets from Ayonayon and Jhonard Clarito. Meanwhile the Risers wilted in the face of the champs' stifling defense, committing several costly turnovers. Bataan slumps to 3-4. The Risers missed the services of offensive machine Alvin Pasaol, who was unavailable for the game. In the featured game the Iloilo United Royals spoiled the home debut of the Bicol Volcanoes LCC Malls by hanging on for a 77-74 victory. Richard Escoto starred for the Ilonggos, getting best player of the game honors with 21 points. Bicol started jittery and hesitant in front of their home fans, shooting just two  of 20 from the field in the first quarter to fall behind 19-11 after ten minutes. There was more bad news early in the second period when Volcanoes talisman Ronjay Buenafe was called for a third foul while going for a jumper. The early foul trouble meant Buenafe's minutes were curtailed and he never got in sync. The Camarines Sur native missed all nine of his attempts from the field and was a non-factor, his 10 points all coming from the stripe. With 1:28 to go in the half and up 37-29, Royals guard JR Parker was observed striking Volcano Leo Blanca in the face. Parker was called for a disqualifying foul and his Bicol adventure came to a premature end. The visitors took a 44-33 lead into the locker room, with Cedric De Joya pumping in 11 of his 12 points. Key baskets from Jonathan Aldave and Alwyn Alday cut the lead to six, 60-54 in the end of the third. LCC Malls continued to chip away at the lead in the payoff period, and an Aldave triple with 48 seconds left brought them within one, 75-74. With 15 seconds left and up 76-74 Richard Escoto had two charities to ice the game. He flubbed both but with no timeouts to call Bicol ran a poor play, with Raffy Gusi missing a wild attempt then getting called for a kick ball. A Samboy de Leon free throw iced the contest for the Royals, sending the big Bicolano crowd home disappointed. Iloilo wins despite shooting 37 percent from the field, two percentage points better than their foes. Bicol's topscorer was Aldave with 18. Iloilo improves to 4-3 while Bicol's four-game win streak is history and their slate is now 5-3......»»
