UAAP Season 82: Kami mismo problema sa game -- Mendrez

Not taking any credit away from Far Eastern University’s good outing, graduating hitter Mean Mendez felt that the University of the East Lady Warriors shot themselves on the foot with their poor reception. “For me parang ang bilis matapos ng game namin,” said Mendrez on Tuesday after UE’s 9-25, 20-25, 17-25, defeat in the UAAP Season 82 women’s volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena. “Parang nagkaroon ng problema sa receive kaya nawalan kami ng kumpiyansa lalo na ako.” Mendrez was on point as the Lady Warriors, who were obviously still adjusting from the departure of multi-awarded libero Kat Arado and do-it-all Judith Abil, allowed FEU to land 14 aces including five from Lady Tamaraws setter Angel Cayuna. FEU started off hot, burying UE early, 6-0, in the opening frame as the Lady Tams took advantage of the Lady Warriors’ spotty service reception. “Pinakaproblema lang talaga namin is service receive kasi once na maka-receive kami, walang problema sa setting at sa attacking, 'yun lang talaga naging problema,” said Mendrez, who was the only Lady Warrior in double figure scoring with 13 points. “'Yun kasi pinaka-base ng laro eh. After service, receive.” UE had a chance to turn its fortune around early in the third set but failed to sustain its momentum. “Kami mismo ang problema sa game kanina,” said Mendrez. “Nahihirapan kami kaagad na putulin 'yung lamang nila, 'di namin natuluy-tuloy 'yung sunud-sunod na points namin. Parang mabilis kami napuputol kaagad tapos hindi namin mahinto pag nagle-lead sila ng points.” It also didn’t help that veteran middle Seth Rodriguez had a bad outing and was limited to just one point in the match that only lasted for 75 minutes.  Mendrez hopes that they will be able to address this problem as they move on to the season. “Siguro double-time talaga kami lalo na ako. Nahihirapan kami once maputol 'yung momentum namin na sunud-sunod. Tapos hirap na kami 'pag nalalamangan na,” she said. “'Yun ang weak point namin 'pag nalalamangan na, sobrang hirap humabol.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles              .....»»

Host Philippines receives favorable draw in 2020 Badminton Asia Manila Team Championships

The fate of the nations competing in the 2020 Badminton Asia Manila Team Championships has been known, Wednesday at the Century Park Hotel. Host Philippines, seeded ninth in the continental meet that will take place from February 11-16 at the historic Rizal Memorial Coliseum, received a somewhat favorable draw. The Philippine Men's National Badminton Team, consisting of Joper Escueta, Ariel Magnaye, Alvin Morada, Solomon Padiz Jr., Paul John Pantig, Ros Pedrosa, Arthur Salvado, and Lanz Zafra, are slotted in Group A together with top-seed Indonesia and fifth-ranked India. On the other hand, the women's team of Nicole Albo, Sarah Barredo, Mika De Guzman, Geva De Vera, Ysay Leonardo, Chanelle Lunod, Bianca Carlos, and Thea Pomar will figure in Group C with fellow Southeast Asian squads Thailand and Indonesia. "We need to prepare since we fell short in the SEA Games. We need to double time, triple time with our effort," said women's team head coach Ian Mendez. "We are playing with the best in the world. We fell short during the SEA Games but, hopefully, we will give them a good fight this time," added men's team head coach Ronald Magnaye. Men's runner-up in 2018 China headlines Group B and will be joined by Thailand and Hong Kong while Group C will consist of Chinese-Taipei, Malaysia, and Singapore. Powerhouse Japan, who will be without world no. 1 Kento Momota as he is still recovering from injuries he sustained from a vehicular accident late last year, leads Group D together with Korea and Kazakhstan. Defending women's champion Japan is slotted with Malaysia and Hong Kong in Group W. Korea, India, and Kazakhstan will wage war in Group X while China, Chinese-Taipei, and Singapore will duke it out in Group Z. The top two teams in each group will advance to the knockout quarterfinals while the four semifinalists will punch their ticket to the Thomas and Uber Cup in Aarhus, Denmark this May. Even with Momoto out, the rest of the world's best will take part in the biennial tournament, including world no. 2 Tien Chen Chou of Chinese Taipei, no. 5 Anthony Ginting and no. 7 Jonatan Christie of Indonesia, no. 9 Ka Long Angus Ng of Hong Kong, and no. 10 Kanta Tsuneyama of Japan for the men's. The top seven female shuttlers in the world will also join, namely China's Yu Fei Chen, Chinese Taipei's Tzu Ying Tai, Japanese duo Akane Yamaguchi and Nozomi Okuhara, Thailand's Ratchanok Intanon, India's Pusarla Sindh, and China's Bing Jiao He. "We're happy to help out in the country's hosting of this prestigious international sports event. This is very much in line with our advocacy of helping nation-building through sports. We strongly believe that the positive values that sports promote can help our people to improve our lives," said PLDT chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, who has been supporting Philippine Badminton for the last decade. "This is going to be the first time that there will be so many top-ranked players who will be going to this tournament in the Philippines. These will be exciting times for the Philippines," added Philippine Badminton Association president Alfredo Benitez......»»

Aaron Black posts 45-18-12, AMA pounds on Hazchem

Aaron Black churned out another triple-double performance, leading AMA's 133-90 decimation of Hazchem to complete Group A's playoff picture in the 2019 PBA D-League Foundation Cup Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. The son of PBA great and current Meralco coach Norman Black finished with 45 points, 18 assists, and 12 rebounds as he tied Jeron Teng for the most number of triple-double performances in the developmental ranks with three. That also marked the sixth-highest scoring game in PBA D-League history. Black also played a big factor behind the Titans' 21-2 start in the game, setting the tone for the one-sided affair. AMA would then lead by as many as 47 points, 130-83, after a Franz Asuncion bucket that came off a Black assist with 34 seconds left to play before cruising to the 43-point victory. "Si Aaron siguro hindi nabigyan ng chance noon pero kilala ko yang batang yan noon pa. Sinabi ko sa kanya na siya inaasahan ng team pero tinutulungan pa rin siya ng teammates niya, so team effort pa rin," said coach Mark Herrera. Dennis Santos had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Luke Parcero had 18 points, while Alvin Fuentes and Michael De Leon added 11 markers apiece in the victory that enabled the Titans to lock up the fourth seed in the group with their 3-3 card. "Pinaghandaan namin to kasi pag natalo kami may chance pa pumasok yung kalaban. Nagbigay din ng motivation yung may-ari ng AMA si Ambassador (Dr. Amable Aguiluz V), birthday niya so gift namin 'to sa kanya," Herrera said. Raymark Matias had 28 points and five rebounds to lead Hazchem, which ended its campaign with a 1-5 card. Alexander Mohammad made 13 points as Marvin Moraga added 10 points and 10 boards in the Green Warriors defeat. BOX SCORES AMA 133 -- Black 45, Santos 20, Parcero 18, Fuentes 11, De Leon 11, Paras 7, Asuncion 5, Rodriguez 5, Alina 3, Austria 3, Tolentino 2, Catorce 2, Saor 1, Estibar 0, Limpin 0.
