As such, both the Baby Lady Falcons and the Junior Growling Tigresses have been declared co-champions in the demonstration sport. The series was knotted at one-all prior to the cancellation.

Adamson University escaped University of Santo Tomas, 79-74, to force a winner-take-all Game Three in the UAAP Season 82 High School Girls' Basketball Tournament, Monday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

"Lesson we learned sa first game - control our emotions. Kasi from that kind of attitude na ginawa namin sa ang pangit ng kinalabasan," Adamson head coach Ewon Arayi recalled about their 68-73 Game One loss last Friday -- their first loss this season after a six-game sweep of the elimination round. "Players are complaining. Coaches are complaining. So walang composure. This time sabi ko sa mga bata please control your emotions," the women's basketball legend continued. The winner-take-all bout is scheduled to take place on Friday, March 13 at the same venue. Camagong, a member of the Mythical Team, led Adamson with 29 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 37 minutes of action. Fellow Mythical Team member Kat Agojo and Abegail Amdad both had identical lines of 12 points and nine rebounds as reigning MVP Cris Padilla was limited to just 10 points on 3-of-14 shooting.

UST sets up Finals date with perfect Adamson in UAAP 82 girls bball

University of Santo Tomas leaned on Erika Danganan's heroics to escape De La Salle Zobel, 50-48, to claim the last finals berth in the UAAP Season 82 Girls' Basketball Tournament, Saturday at the Paco Arena. UST will face the undefeated Adamson University in the best-of-three finals, slated to begin on March 6, Friday, at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Knotted at 48-all, Danganan received the ball at the top of the arc, fake handoff and drove to the basket for the game-winner with nine seconds left. With one final chance to tie or grab the win, Luisa Dela Paz's three-pointer was blocked by Danganan to ice the victory. "Yung both hamstrings niya, masakit, may iniinda yung bata, pero ang maganda sa kanya, mature na siya maglaro kaya naiangat niya kami sa panalo," UST head coach Ford Grajales on Danganan. Danganan powered the Junior Growling Tigresses with 13 points, three rebounds and a block to end the eliminations at 4-2. Their two losses both came from Adamson. Rachel Lacayanga backstopped her with nine markers and 10 boards while Micka Sison chipped in eight points. Jeehan Ahmed carried the fight for DLSZ with 18 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks, three assists and a steal.

UAAP Season 82: No time to relax for repeat-seeking Ateneo Lady Eagles

All teams will be after Ateneo de Manila University as the Lady Eagles march into UAAP Season 82 with a huge target mark on their chests. But instead of taking it as pressure in its attempt to keep the title perched in Katipunan, Ateneo embraces it. A constant reminder for the Lady Eagles to be on their toes at all times and always keep their guards up. “Since defending champs kami, everyone wants to beat us,” said incoming third year libero Dani Ravena. “Added pressure ‘yun, but at the same time, it's motivation for us not to be satisfied with one game,” added Ravena. “Everyone wants to beat us so the next game will be tougher than the last one.” Ateneo lost three vital cogs in Maddie Madayag, Bea De Leon and Kim Gequillana after its title conquest last year in a dramatic come-from-behind Finals series win over University of Sto. Tomas, but still remains a powerhouse squad with key returnees and the addition of blue chip recruits. The biggest boost in the Lady Eagles’ title-retention bid is the presence of prolific scorer and court leader Kat Tolentino, who decided to make one final tour of duty. Joining Tolentino are seasoned players Jho Maraguinot and setter Jamie Lavitoria, who are making their return after skipping a year to pursue careers in the commercial league.   Ateneo will miss the services of heady playmaker Deanna Wong, who is still recovering from a shin injury, but will still have most of their championship core in Ravena, Ponggay Gaston, Jules Samonte, Vanessa Gandler, Erika Raagas and setter Jaja Maraguinot.   “Malaking factor ang pagbalik ng mga seniors sa amin and ‘yung improvement ng mga rookies and sophomores isang malaking bagay para sa amin,” said Ateneo head coach Oliver Almadro. Giving the Lady Eagles an even deeper arsenal this season is the integration of promising rookies led by scorer Faith Nisperos and middle Joan Narit. While the good mix of veterans and rookies combined with championship experience and support of legions of fans make the Lady Eagles a serious title contender, Almadro constantly reminds his team that a repeat won’t be given to them for free.     “Mahirap maging complacent,” he said. “Mahirap mag-settle down na nakabalik na si ganito, nakabalik na si ganyan. I’m always telling my players, it’s not about how strong you are, it’s not about being strong lang eh.” “’Di sapat sa akin yung magaling lang eh. Kailanngan talaga nandoon ang teamwork, nandoon ang effort, nandoon ang sacrifices for the team and the school,” Almadro stressed.   EYES ON YOU: Ateneo will see this season the final flight of Kat Tolentino for the blue and white as well as the debut of its prized recruit Faith Nisperos. All eyes will be on the duo as they try to bring the Lady Eagles their second straight title and fourth overall.       Nisperos showed a glimpse of what to expect from her during the pre-season as she led Ateneo to a third place finish in the PVL Collegiate Conference. The National University-Nazareth School product, who averaged 12.4 points per game with 41.46% success rate in attacks in the PVL, embraces the challenge of playing for one of the best teams in the league in the past decade.    “I just wanna do my best,” she said. “I won't pressure myself in trying to push myself too hard. Ang goal ko lang naman is gampanan ‘yung role ko sa team.” For Tolentino, who during the pre-season played for ChocoMucho in the PVL Open Conference, she will be playing a bigger role as the leader of the Lady Eagles. “My main goal for this year is to find that leadership role and show my character,” said Tolentino. “I wanna help the team using my experience the last four years. I wanna encourage my teammates to push for that same goal.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

UST, Adamson triumph in historic first day of UAAP girls basketball

Adamson and UST overpowered their respective foes to take the historic first wins in the inaugural UAAP Girls' Basketball competition, Saturday at the Paco Arena.

UST's advantage ballooned to 26 points at the 9:25 mark of the fourth quarter as Jane Aranza finished off her steal off of a Candice Udal pass to put the board at 47-21.

Janna Torres delivered when her number was called, leading University of Sto. Tomas to a 24-26, 25-18, 25-17, 25-17, victory over Ateneo De Manila University on Wednesday to force a rubber match in the best-of-three Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Collegiate Conference semifinals at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The freshman middle blocker exploded for 14 points as she wreaked havoc at the net with 10 attacks and three kill blocks along with one ace for the Tigresses, who came back from a four-set loss their UAAP Season 81 Final tormentors in the game that saw Torres play only two sets with only one point under her name. UST recovered from a first set meltdown with strong showings in the next three as the Tigresses took advantage of the Lady Eagles’ 38 errors to force a deciding Game 3 on Sunday. Rookie Imee Hernandez added 12 markers while Eya Laure had 10 points including three aces with two coming in the closing stretch of the fourth set for UST. EJ Laure and Rachelle Roldan combined for 14 points for the Espana-based squad. The Tigresses actually had a chance to take the first frame after pushing at set point, 24-21, only to see Ateneo counterattack with five unanswered points. The next two sets were easy picking for the Tigresses, before Ateneo showed tough resistance in the fourth. The Lady Eagles were able to erase a 6-10 deficit and tied it at 10 off an Erika Raagas kill. UST regained the lead but Ateneo rookie Faith Nisperos cut it to 15-14 only to see the Lady Eagles shoot themselves on the foot after giving away five of the Tigresses’ last 10 points off their errors. Vanie Gandler led Ateneo with 15 points including 13 off spikes, Nisperos had 12 markers while Jules Samonte and Raagas got 11 points each. Dani Ravena tallied 22 digs and 10 excellent receptions but committed the last of Ateneo's atrocious errors after pushing the ball out on a broken play.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
