MPBL: Binan cruises to sixth straight win, Bulacan triumphs

BIÑAN, LAGUNA -- Biñan City-Luxxe White cruised to its sixth-straight victory after handing Sarangani Province an 18-point beating, 92-74, in the 2019-20 Chooks-to-Go/MPBL Lakan Cup at the Alonte Sports Arena here, Friday. Biñan, who took control of the match right from the get-go, took its biggest lead of the game with 20 points off a layup from James Mangahas, 58-38, in the third quarter. However, the home team saw their lead dwindle as Sarangani's Jun Dimapiles, Jay Cabanog, Hamsar Macantal, and Miko Estrellante took turns in hitting buckets to slice Biñan's lead to just 10 points with almost seven minutes remaining in the game. It was the closest Sarangani Proving could reach, as Macky Acosta weathered the surge before Jed Mendoza stamped the exclamation point with a three-pointer in the 1:55 mark, 85-68, completely taking the fight out of Sarangani. "Consistency lang. Yun lang naman ang hinahanap ko sa mga players, so nagtatrabaho kami sa practice, in-execute namin yung game plan, and blessed kami ngayon," said Biñan head coach Denok Miranda. James Mangahas, who was held scoreless in the first half, finished the game with 18 points and 10 rebounds for Biñan. Acosta put up 14 points, four boards, and three dimes while Mendoza had 13 markers and seven rebounds for the Luxxe White-backed squad, who now stands at 12-14 -- a game behind eight seed Bicol in the Southern Division. Meanwhile, Dimapiles fired 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting for Sarangani, who is still at the bottom of the Southern Division with a 1-25 record. Sarangani Province dropped their fourth consecutive game in the tournament. In the earlier contest, Bulacan solidified their hold of the fourth spot with a 76-69 triumph over the also-ran Parañaque-Yabo Sports. With the victory, the Kuyas upgraded their standing to 18-8, solidifying the fourth place in the Northern Division. "Mas maganda yung game namin ngayon compared sa previous game namin. I applaud my players, especially yung first group namin with [how] they handled the press," said Bulacan head coach Kerwin McCoy. Bulacan came out strong in the second half, leading by as big as 18 points capped off by a step-back jumper from Rev Diputado, 60-42. With the game looking out of Parañaque's reach, the Patriots rallied behind Keith Pido and Jemal Vizcarra in the final frame. Pido drained timely buckets while Vizcarra nailed a three-pointer which sliced the Kuyas' lead to just three points, 63-66, with 5:05 left in the clock. JR Alabanza, Stephen Siruma, and Jay-R Taganas, though had other things in mind. The troika joined hands in a 7-2 spurt before Lester Alvarez stepped on the Patriot's comeback hopes by connecting a three to put Bulacan up by nine points with 1:47 left. Taganas spearheaded Bulacan -- who won its fifth consecutive outing -- with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Bulacan's homegrown star Stephen Siruma and Rev Diputado added 12 points each for the Kuyas. On the other hand, Pido led Parañaque with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field. The Yabo Sports-backed team fell to 8-17 to remain at the twelfth spot also in the Northern Division. In the first game, also-ran Navotas-Unipak Sardines ended Valenzuela-Carga Backload Solutions' playoffs hopes with an 88-83 upset. Down by 11 points in the final frame, ex-pros Val Acuña and Paolo Hubalde did not allow Valenzuela to go down without a fight. The duo led a 14-4 surge to trim Navotas' lead to two points, 74-76, with 3:28 remaining left in the game. Navotas led by as much as six points behind Renz Gonzales and Algin Andaya. But with 59 ticks remaining, Acuña was able to pull Valenzuela to within three with a three-point bomb, 83-86. However, a costly inbound violation from Paul Varilla followed by a technical foul from Valenzuela head coach Ronjay Enrile spelled doom for the Classic. Gonzales, Andaya, and Kojack Melegrito combined for four points from the charity stripe to completely seal the deal. "We want to compete because that's the nature of the sport. Kahit na wala na, sabi ko sa kanila, 'We still have to play the right way," said Navotas head coach Gabby Severino. Jhong Bondoc paced the also-ran Navotas with 19 points and seven rebounds while Melegrito and Gonzales followed with 10 points apiece. The Unipak Sardines-owned squad upped their card to 7-19 in the Northern Division -- good for the fourteenth spot -- while also ending their three-game losing streak in the process. Acuña finished with 24 points built on 16 three-pointers for the Classic, who dropped their slate to 10-16.

MPBL: Cunanan scores 20 to lead Imus to impressive home win

TEAM STANDINGS NORTH San Juan 20-3 Makati 20-4 Manila 19-4 Pasig 14-8 Bulacan 14-8 Bataan 14-9 Pampanga 14-9 Caloocan 14-10 Pasay 13-10 Valenzuela 9-14 Quezon City 9-15 Parañaque 8-15 Navotas 6-18 Nueva Ecija 5-16 Rizal 4-17 Marikina 4-17 SOUTH Davao 19-3 Bacoor 18-5 GenSan 15-7 Basilan 15-8 Iloilo 15-8 Batangas 13-8 Zamboanga 14-10 Bicol 13-12 Cebu 9-12 Biñan 10-14 Bacolod 8-15 Mindoro 8-17 Muntinlupa 5-18 Imus 6-20 Sarangani 1-22 The Imus Bandera Luxxe Slim put an end to their six-game losing streak by outplaying Navotas Uni-Pak, 86-71, in Monday night's main game of the Chooks To Go Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season at the Imus City Sports Complex. The visitors were without forward Jhong Bondoc, who watched the game in street clothes from the bench. Imus exploited his absence brilliantly, out-assisting their foes 31-13 and never really looking like they would lose. "Sabi ni coach dumepensa lang kami ng maayos at yung opensa, darating," said Jojo Cunanan, who copped best player of the game honors with a 20-point night highlighted by six triples from nine attempts. Led by Jeric Nacpil's 12 points, Luxxe Slim carved out a 50-33 lead at the half. A variety of Navoteños got on the scoresheet in the third and fourth quarters but Cunanan dropped three triples, two in the fourth, as Imus skated to an easy win in front of their fans to go to 6-19. The Bandera played their second game in three days, losing to Biñan on Saturday. Navotas falls to 5-20 despite 11 points from Osama Abdurasad and 10 from Kojak Melegrito. Imus were also without their talisman, Gerald Anderson, who had prior commitments and missed a rare Imus home game in their newly-renovated arena. In the second game, Bacolod Master Sardines took down the Bicol Volcanoes LCC Stores, 76-72, in overtime. Bacolod homegrown star Pao Javelona sent the game into the extension with a daring driving lay-up down the throat of the Bicolano defense with ninr ticks left for 70-70. There was exactly one field goal in overtime, a driving lay-up off the glass from Edgar Charcos that gave Master Sardines a 74-72 lead with 40 seconds remaining. After Volcano Alwyn Alday muffed a fast break lay-up, Javelona iced the game with two free throws. Ramil Tansingco led Bacolod with 15 points as the Sardine men go to 8-15. Alday had a game-high 23 points for Bicol but LCC Stores shoots just 31% from the field and do themselves no favors in the playoff race, stumbling to 13-12. The day began with the Iloilo United Royals shrugging off a gritty Rizal Xentro Malls Golden Coolers team, 71-65. The Royals led by as much as 16 in the third but the Golden Coolers hacked their way back into the game with the steady play of Rommel Saliente. A three-pointer from Kelvin Gregorio pulled them to within six, 56-50, going into the final segment of the game. A Jordan Rios layup with just under four minutes meant Rizal had their nose in front, 63-62. But Jerson Prado scored four straight points and Al Tamsi converted a big triple for a 69-65 lead with a little over a minute to go. United ran out winners to improve to 15-8 despite the absence of center Jay Javelosa, who is out for four weeks with a broken hand. Tamsi led Iloilo with 16 points while Gregorio's 15 markers paced Xentro Malls, who drop to 6-17......»»

The team may be struggling but coach Gabby Severino is hopeful that new players can turn the season around.

Coach Gabby Severino barks instructions to his Navotas Uni-Pak Sardines players while they run a half-court scrimmage in the Acropolis Gym in Pasig. He is told that his trainings are intense, and this is his reply: “Practices are intense because I make them that way. I don't want the players to think that just because they are in this league they can't just walk around. You still have to work hard. That is the culture I want to establish. They work hard, practice hard, then the results will come.” Unfortunately for Severino, results have been hard to come by for Navotas Uni-Pak. The team is fourth from bottom in the North Division with a 4-11 slate. A run at a playoff spot is still within reach, but the odds are against them. There have been some bright moments this season, the most notable being the record 125-point output in the win over Nueva Ecija last July. In that game they out-assisted their foes 38-21. But Severino is somewhat dismissive of that freakish night. “That game was a bit of a fluke. I'd rather have more consistency.” The good news is that Severino has three new toys to play with, all acquired during the recent trading window. Mark Anthony “Dudu” Guillen is a 6'4” power forward who came over from the Pampanga Giant Lanterns. Severino says Guillen is “experienced, has a good touch from outside. He's a banger, he's smart and big enough to defend the post.” Also coming aboard is 6'2" Joecel Prudente, who previously played for Bacoor as a homegrown player. “He will bring energy in defense and strength, we are kind of thin in the guard spot,” explains the coach, who can deploy Prudente as a two guard or three. “He penetrates hard, he has the body to do that,” adds the coach. The third new piece of the puzzle is the athletic Jesper Bautista, a 6'4" wing. “I'll play him as a 3 first and I'll see what happens,” reveals Severino. “We are not that tall a team so maybe I can get a little more height. He has guard skills and attacks well. Jesper's a good defender and I like his energy. It's just his shooting can be better.” Navotas shipped Brylle Ivan Meca to Bataan for the former Arellano Chief. These three new cogs will hopefully work well with Navotas' standout player this season, forward Jhong Bondoc, who was roped in via John Flores, coach of the Community Basketball Association's General Trias Braves. Severino points to the big guy with cupping marks on his shoulders. “Bondoc is an undersized big (6'3”) who works hard, rebounds well, is a fighter, a tough guy, who can shoot the three pointer. In my system we encourage the bigs to shoot from outside, as basketball is going all over the world. Bigs are bigger guards who can shoot outside,” says the coach. But it's plain to see that Navotas does not have the talent of the best teams in the league. The team was only assembled a week before the season began, so the top-tier players had all been snapped up. Coach Gabby hopes to counter the talent deficit with his system. “I'd like to think we are an unselfish team. We share the ball, if you look at our stats we have around 20 assists per game. There are always different people shining, we don't have one star. We were late getting the team, we don't have the best talent to work with, but that's okay if as the players are willing to sacrifice personal glory for the team.” Severino says there are lots of details in his system, which he describes as a European-style motion offense with “pockets of Ateneo in both offense and defense.” Severino is an assistant in Tab Baldwin's Blue Eagle team, and has been so for ages. Severino says the Navotas scheme utilizes plenty of backdoor-cut handoffs as well as elements of a classic pick and roll. The coach admits that even with the Blue Eagles, details of the system are sometimes forgotten. Naturally that also happens with his Navotas charges. The vastly different cultures and backgrounds of the two teams also present a challenge when he tries to introduce tactical concepts. “It's like trying to get them to like caviar or sushi, when maybe they have grown up eating daing na bangus,” says Severino. “You have to temper expectations. But they are learning.” Last Monday Navotas put their offensive and defense in play against the Quezon City Capitals. Bondoc led the way with 20 points and Guillen was solid with 11. Mark Matillano was clutch, knocking in a pair of late charities to force overtime. But QC prevailed in the extension, 98-97. It was a bitter loss but Severino can take solace that they took a team higher than them in the standings into an extra five minutes. There is plenty to look forward to in Navotas. Their much maligned home court, the Navotas Sports Complex, is set for a date with the wrecking ball, and will be replaced with a new multi-storey, multi-purpose facility. Team owner Rico Quicho and city mayor Toby Tiangco, as well as congressman John Rey Tiangco appear staunchly committed to the franchise. The team may be in the bottom half of the standings, but Navotas is looking to the future in the knowledge that hard work will be their key to success......»»

JR Alabanza s superb night helps Bulacan defeat Imus despite a passionate Caviteño gallery in Imus.

The Bulacan Kuyas displayed exceptional composure down the stretch to defeat Imus Bandera - Khaleb Shawarma, 75-70, in the featured game in Monday's action at the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. Imus was hoping to celebrate Jayjay Helterbrand's birthday as well as the re-opening of their new home court, the Imus City Sports Center, with a win, but it was not to be. Imus drops to 4-13. Helterbrand was limited to eight points while the Bandera's other high-profile player, Gerald Anderson, was scoreless in 10 minutes of play. JR Alabanza was the key player for Bulacan with 17 points and 7 rebounds while Lester Alvarez, another Kuya, finished with a game-high 21 points. The Kuyas vault to 10-7 in the standings. Jeric Nacpil had a solid first half as the home side led 35-27. By the end of the third period a pair of Jhan McHale Nermal charities put the Kuyas up 56-54. In the fourth quarter six straight points from Bandera forward Emcee Caceres drew Imus to within three, 71-68. Francis Munsayac even cut the lead to 73-70 with a short jumper. But Kuya Rev Diputado dispatched two free throws in the last 14 seconds to put the game to bed. Nacpil and Jojo Cunanan led Imus in scoring with 12 apiece. The Quezon City Capitals - WEMSAP denied Navotas Uni-Pak Sardines an upset by squeaking through with a 98-97 win in OT. QC's Dahrrel Caranguian rifled in a three-pointer to put the Caps in front 74-72 with 31 seconds left in regulation. But Domark Matillano showed champion nerves by slithering in a pair of free throws with ten ticks left to force a richly-deserved extension for Navotas. Uni-Pak outscored QC, 22-16, in the last quarter. Matillano and new pick up Dudu Guillen dueled with Clark Derige and Caranguian in overtime. Baskets from Mark Olayon, one a go-ahead jumper with 10 seconds left, clinched the victory. Olayon, formerly from Batangas City, is another new pick up for WEMSAP. Caranguian led all scorers with 22 while Jhong Bondoc's 20 points was best for Navotas, who slump to 4-11. QC is very much in the thick of the playoff hunt at 8-10. In the afternoon match-up, the Pasay Voyagers bucked a monster outing from the Marikina Shoemasters' Yves Sazon to hang on for a 70-66 victory. Jaypee Belencion topscored for Pasay with 19 points, as the Voyagers go to 12-6. Marikina fought hard but two late-game errors derailed them. Sazon was unguardable in the first half, exploding for 20 points with five triples. But Pasay's Axel Inigo also thrived from three point range with three in the second, and the Voyagers led at the half, 41-36. The Voyagers turned the screws in the third with a 13-0 run for a 54-41 advantage thanks to sharp shooting from Inigo and Jerome Pasia. The third quarter ended with the Pasayenos in control 60-49. But Sazon kept up the pace with back-to-back triples in the fourth quarter as the Mariquenos wouldn't go away. When Von Tambeling knocked in a short baseline stab with 25 seconds left, the lead was down to 2, 68-66. But Shoemaker Franz Dysam took too long to foul on the next play despite the instructions of coach Elvis Tolentino. Inigo made both clutch charities for 70-66. In the ensuing play Joshua Gonzales sealed Marikina's fate by stepping on the baseline while releasing a desperation trey. Sazon led all scorers with 28 points while Marikina strengthens their hold on the North Division cellar with a 3-13 card......»»

Gian Abrigo and Aris Dionisio shine as Manila are taken to the brink by a fiesty Navotas team.

Manila Stars - Frontrow won the battle for bragging rights across Estero de Marala by defeating Navotas Uni-Pak Sardines 96-91 in Wednesday night action of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season. The Stars go to 12-2 in front of their fans in the San Andres Gym, but the home team were pushed hard by a Navoteno side that provided a stiffer challenge than their 3-10 record suggests. "Nahirapan talaga kami sa kanila. Sabi ni coach kailangan talaga natin ng stops, di pwede score lang," said Manila forward Gian Abrigo, who copped the best player of the game award on the strength of his 18 points and 11 rebounds. Aris Dionisio came to the fore in the second quarter for Manila, helping turn an 11-point deficit into a 45-43 halftime lead. The center came off the bench with 12 markers in the quarter including an alley-oop conversion off a Chris Bitoon pass and a slam dunk right after. He also picked up a block in the last possession that led to a Carlo Lastimosa layup. In a high-scoring third quarter Manila's Bitoon stepped up but so did Navoteno Jhong Bondoc. Frontrow led with ten minutes to go, 73-68. The fourth quarter saw the teams trading fire, with Bitoon, Lastimosa and Dionisio battliing mano a mano with Uni-Pak's Bondoc and Algin Andaya. With under a minute to go Bitoon gathered the ball after being blocked and looped in a one-hander for a precious 93-87 advantage. Navotas would score one more field goal, Bondoc completing his team-high 23 points, and Manila settled matters from the free throw line. The Stars win despite shooting a wretched 16 of 32 from the line. They did, however, dominate the smaller Navotas side with 60 points in the paint against 38. Dionisio was a monster with 19 points, 8 rebounds, 4 steals and a pair of blocks.   Cebu Sharks 74 - 70 Zamboanga In the second game of the day the Cebu Sharks - Casino Ethyl Alcohol leaned on homegrown Cebuano center Will McAloney's five-star night to dismiss Zamboanga Family's Brand Sardines 74-70. McAloney led all scorers with 28 points as Casino Ethyl Alcohol concludes a three-game losing streak and keeps their playoff hopes alive with a 5-8 card. Despite 18 turnovers in the first half Zamboanga found themselves tied 25-all at the half with the Sharks. Cebu edged Zamboanga in the third quarter to take a 42-38 lead into the last 10 minutes. In the fourth quarter McAloney rolled up his sleeves and went to work, pounding the Zamboangeno defense with 17 points, many in the paint against the man tasked to stop him, Allan Santos. It was a nervous finish for the Sharks with a series of late turnovers that lead to an 8-0 run with Harold Arboleda coming up with 5 markers in that spell that pulled Family's Brand to within 4, 64-60, but an unsportsmanlike foul on Santos right after was a crucial error for the Sardine Kings. John Reel Saycon made both of the charities and when Harold Cortez also went 2-for-2 from the stripe soon after, Zamboanga's fate was clear. Late Zamboanga baskets made the scoreline more respectable but could not prevent the loss. Despite 21 points from Robin Rono, Zamboanga falls to 8-8.   Gensan Warriors 91 - Pasig Sta. Lucia In the afternoon game Gensan Warriors Burlington turned on the afterburners with a dominant second half performance to take out the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors 91-82. Warrior Juju Bautista had a breakout game with 23 points, about 19 more than his season norm, as the Mindanao team goes to 11-4 and ends a two-game losing streak. Burlington were down 45-37 in the half but whatever pep talk coach Richie Alvarez delivered in the halftime huddle must have worked.

MPBL: Balanced scoring helps Bulacan maul Valenzuela

Bragging rights across the Meycauayan river go to the Bulacan Kuyas as they hammered the Valenzuela Classic SPV Top Marketplace 97-79 in Wednesday night action at the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season from the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in Malolos. It was a case of "pick your poison" for the visitors as six different Kuyas breached double figures in points. Bulacan goes to 5-4 with the win while SPV Top Marketplace slides to 4-6. The Kuyas first showed their intent with a 16-0 run in the second quarter to take a 37-30 lead. The Classic responded with a run of their own thanks to an astonishing nine straight points from Jaymar Gimpayan. It was 44-42 at the half for the Kuyas. However, in the third quarter it was one-way traffic for Bulacan as they terrorized the Classic defense with runs of 8-0 and 10-0, the latter featuring back-to-back triples from Dan Sara, who won best player honors with 11 points and 9 assists. Bulacan took a 70-58 lead into the final period and didn't let up even in garbage time. Antonio Bonsubre's 12 points was tops for the Kuyas as Rev Diputado, Jovit Dela Cruz, John Rey Alabanza and Jhan McHale Nermal all got ten or more points. "Kailangan talagang i-defend ang home court namin. Ginagawa talaga namin ang best namin para sa fans sa Bulacan," said Sara after. Britt Reroma's team gets a second straight win while Valenzuela continues their tailspin with a 5th straight loss. Gimpayan topscored for the Classic with 14 markers. In the early evening game Zamboanga Family's Brand Sardines walloped the SOCCSKSARGEN Armor On Marlins 100-75 in a match-up of Mindanao ball clubs. Zamboanga led 56-39 in the half but the Marlins pulled to with 12, 60-48 thanks to Exe Biteng's seven quickfire early third quarter points. Zamboanga's Robbie Costelo replied with several baskets to stretch the lead to 81-61 at the end of the third. Costelo's 19 markers led his team. There was no let up in the fourth as Leo De Vera poured in more output to add gloss to the scoreline. De Vera ended up with 16 points. Zamboanga improves to 5-4 while the Marlins continue their free-fall with a seventh loss in as many games. Jake Diwa led the scoring for SOCCSKSARGEN with 14 points. The day kicked off with Davao Occidental Tigers Cocolife sweeping away the challenge of Navotas Uni-Pak Sardines 94-74. The Tigers exploded with 27 points in the third quarter to put Navotas in the rearview mirror for good. Billy Robles led the Tigers with 14 points while DavOcc also enjoyed a breakout game from Chester Saldua who provided 13 markers.
