Built by Bo, bonded for Bo, believe in Bo

This is not the first time that Bo Perasol has had a recruiting haul this huge. Now heading into his fifth season in the University of the Philippines, he has brought in blue-chip recruits such as Gerry Abadiano and Carl Tamayo and talented transferees like Joel Cagulangan, CJ Cansino, and Malick Diouf to a team that already has Bright Akhuetie, Kobe Paras, and Ricci Rivero. And don't forget that Gomez de Liano brothers Javi and Juan are only sitting out the next season - and what lies beyond for them is yet to be determined. This is not that different from his time in Ateneo de Manila University when he scored UAAP Jrs. Season MVP Jerie Pingoy, UAAP Jrs. Finals MVP Hubert Cani, NCAA Mythical selection CJ Perez, and NCAA Jrs. standout Arvin Tolentino in his first few years. Those promising prospects then joined forces with Blue Eagle stalwarts Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal Unfortunately, all of Pingoy, Cani, Perez, and Tolentino - along with the rest of the so-called "Magnificent 7" - found themselves with academic deficiencies and, therefore, ineligible by the blue and white's standards. Not long after, they transferred to different schools and squads and then had varying degrees of success. Will Coach Bo's tale get a different ending this time with the Fighting Maroons? Perasol is making sure of that. "From my experience in Ateneo, natuto ako. Ngayon, meron kaming grupo sa programa na nagha-handle lang ng academics ng players," he shared. He then continued, "Sinasamahan sila sa mga klase, pinapakilala sa mga propesor, ine-explain na player natin yan, pag merong problema, coordinate lang po tayo." Apparently, this academic assistance team is made up of former student-managers who have graduated. Now, their first job is all about seeing to it that State U would not have to go through the same sort of headache Ateneo had with its "Magnificent 7." With that, you could be sure that UP's pillars of honor and excellence still stand strong even as all these new faces join Men's Basketball Team. "Walang special consideration. Pumapasok sila, bumabagsak sila. Binibigyan sila ng extra work, humihingi sila ng extra work," Coach Bo said. He then continued, "Ang ine-explain ko lagi sa players at sa professors, ang mahalaga, basta masipag pumasok at nagpapakita ng intensyong matuto." STARRING AND STRIKING At present, just about everybody is still getting used to blue-chip recruits and talented transferees going for UP. That is why there are more questions than answers each and every time they announce a new player. And along with the question of whether or not all these new faces would be up to par in terms of the honor and excellence the Philippines' prime public university prides itself in, there is a question of just how the Fighting Maroons got here in the first place. How could State U, not that far removed from its self-proclaimed "dark days," get all of these players? And not just players, at that, but many big name players. The categorical answer? The program could now afford it. "Meron nang pondo salamat sa sponsors," head coach Bo Perasol explained. "For example, kung makikita mo lang yung patches sa harap ng jersey, malaking pera yun. Nag-aagawan ang marami para dun." At present, the shot-caller said that UP has eight corporate sponsors all getting together for the funds for the program. And unlike Ateneo which has Manny V. Pangilinan or National University which has Hans Sy as primary backers, the Fighting Maroons' system is quite different. "Ang source ng funds ng UP, halos lahat galing sa alumni. Tapos lahat yun, mina-manage ng nowheretogobutUP," coach Bo said. According to its website, nowheretogobutUP (NTGBUP) is "a volunteer group of UP alumni that aims to help, assist, and support the development, improvement, and advancement of the varsity program of UP." All of the finances it manages, however, are not necessarily donations. As Perasol put it, "Yung model ng UP is unique kasi yung support nila, kailangan may balik din from us." For example, the tactician said that many of their players have made appearances, online in this continuing COVID-19 crisis and in person prior to the pandemic, to cheer up employees of Palawan Pera Padala, one of the team's sponsors. More importantly, Coach Bo reminded yet again that the only reason they have all these new faces is because they have to. He pointed out how Abadiano and Filipino-American Sam Dowd would make up for the losses of Jun Manzo and Juan GDL as well as how Diouf and Cansino are already waiting in the wings once Bright Akhuetie and Ricci Rivero graduate. "We're also recruiting for the impending need," Perasol said. "Hindi naman ito biglaan. Since nagsimula kami rito, we all did this nang dahan-dahan lang. Kaya rin yung support from alumni for funding, hindi na rin naging mahirap." DREAMING Still, the mere fact that UP is now a big-time player on and off the court in collegiate basketball seemed so farfetched just five years ago. Before Bo Perasol, the Fighting Maroons were stuck in a vicious cycle. Now, though, they have back-to-back playoff appearances and have traded blows with traditional powerhouses for recruits and transferees. All of this made possible because the very moment he came in, Coach Bo already knew the secret to success. "You cannot build a program without funds," he said. Perasol furthered that his biggest takeaway from his time in Ateneo was that competing with the traditional powerhouses on the court entailed competing with them as well off of it. "Alam ko yung kakayanan ng Ateneo and siyempre, kakumpetensya ko rin nun yung La Salle so alam ko rin yung kanila. Ganun na rin ang kakayanan ng NU and yung iba pa, kakayanin din nila kung gustuhin nila," he said. He then continued, "Kaya kung ang objective ng programa is to be in the top four, your program should be levelled din sa capacity ng top four." The General Santos native then went on to point out how training in the country or abroad, recruitment local and overseas, housing, and food and nutrition all have costs. "To sum it up, everything you're going to do would entail financing. Hindi ito kakayanin ng UP as a public school dahil wala namang pondo ang gobyerno para dyan," he said. He then continued, "Ang pinakasagot nalang ng school is yung scholarship. And siyempre, yung nag-aaral ka sa UP." That doesn't mean, however, that their hands were tied. In fact, the answer to the questions had always been there. "The good thing about UP is there's millions of alumni all over the world and a lot are successful people and businessmen who are willing to help," Perasol said. BELIEVING Indeed, having educated Filipinos for over 112 years now, UP has, without a doubt, more than a few successful alumni. It was all a matter of uniting - and then unleashing - them. Even before Bo Perasol came home to Diliman, NTGBUP was already organized. They were not necessarily thrilled with the Fighting Maroons, though. "Nung una, dahan-dahan lang, ambag-ambag lang para merong kakainin, pambayad sa dorm. Merong nag-donate ng shoes," Coach Bo said. He then continued, "Pero siyempre, they want first and foremost a program with improvements and direction." NTGBUP and the UP community got just that from Perasol as a 3-11, seventh-place finish in 2015 became a 5-9, sixth-place finish in 2016 in Coach Bo's first year. In his second year, the squad improved to a  6-8, fifth-place finish. From there, the Fighting Maroons have been in the Final Four for back-to-back years now - and even made the Finals in 2018. "Nagsimula maging excited ang alumni nung nagsimula ring manalo," he shared. "When we started winning, nagkaroon hindi lang ng physical support, but financial support as well. We were ascending eh." In his third year at the helm, State U, finally, officially had corporate sponsors. And you know how that year went? That was when they ended a 21-year Final Four drought and then a 32-year Finals absence. Safe to say, the sleeping giant was awoken. "Yes, sleeping giant talaga tayo and when we say nagising, ang pinaka-catalyst was the winning," its fearless leader said. Now, UP MBT has a mean machine of financial support on its back, paving the path for its big-time recruiting haul in 2020. Even better, they now have a loud and proud fanbase that is making up for all the lost time they stayed away during the "dark days." "Actually, sa pitches ko sa recruitment, kasama sa presentation ko yung machi-cheer sila nang ganung klaseng crowd," Coach Bo said. SURVIVING At the same time, though, that loud and proud fanbase expects much, much more from this brand new power. For each and every one of them, Bo Perasol has but one reminder. "What we have done in the past years is to level up lang. We have a new gym, we have all these players, we can train abroad," he said. He then continued, "Pero yung mga Ateneo, La Salle, 20 to 30 years na nilang ginagawa yan. What we did was just to level up alongside them." Again and again, Coach Bo has said that what he has been doing is, put simply, putting UP in the best position to win. Still, with a roster as overflowing with talent as this, he could only acknowledge that just about everybody sees them as having gone championship or bust. Credit to him, however, Perasol was blunt with his assessment that he would also be disappointed if they would not be able to taste their first championship since 1986 sooner than later. "Yes, it will be a failed plan kung hindi tayo makakakuha ng championship in the next three to five years," he said. He then continued, "Yan naman talaga ang plano and ang ginagawa natin ngayon is all going towards that objective." And again and again, he is putting all those great expectations on his shoulders - and on his shoulders alone. "Ako naman, hindi ko rin pwedeng hindi gawin itong ganitong recruitment kasi hindi rin naman ako magkakaroon ng chance kung ganun. I have to be in the best position to succeed so that we are in the best position to succeed," he said. Only time would tell if all the seeds he has sown would bear fruit. But Coach Bo is already guaranteeing that whatever happens then, he would have no regrets. "In the end, alam ko namang babalik ang lahat sa akin. Alam na alam ko namang ako ang leader ng team," he said. He then continued, "Ang mahalaga is we gave ourselves a chance. Anuman ang outcome, basta nabigyan natin ang sarili natin ng pagkakataon." After years and years and years as the laughingstock of men's basketball, it looks like it's now UP's turn to smile and wave. Whether or not that ultimately turns into jumps for joy for their first title in three decades remains to be seen. But maybe, just maybe, Coach Bo is right - this is all worth it just to have a chance to compete. Just remember that in the "dark days," that chance to compete wasn't there at all. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

SUPER SHOWDOWN: rookie Dindin Santiago vs. rookie Jaja Santiago

Towering sisters Dindin Santiago-Manabat and Jaja Santiago left lasting impacts in the UAAP. Versatile, talented and intimidating are just some of the traits the siblings share. Both are vital cogs in their local commercial league club and are valuable assets to the national team. International clubs even took notice of the Santiago sisters’ dominant presence and high-level volleyball skills that they landed deals to play in the prestigious Japan V. Premier League. And of course if you’re a University of Sto. Tomas faithful you’ll often wonder what the Tigresses would have achieved if the sisters stayed in Espana instead of moving to National University. Looking back, we saw how the Santiago sisters evolved into what they are today. With their towering presence, both immediately made valuable contribution during their debut seasons? But then again, which Santiago made a bigger impact in their rookie year? Dindin’s first year with UST or Jaja’s maiden tour of duty for NU?   OFFENSE and DEFENSE Dindin right now stands at 6-foot-2 while Jaja is listed at 6-foot-5, even if we deduct a few inches from their current height during their respective debuts they’ll still be pretty tall compared to the rest of the field. In Season 72, Dindin complemented an already stacked Tigresses. Though overshadowed by legends Aiza Maizo and Angeli Tabaquero, Dindin made a decent contribution on offense averaging almost six points per game. Dindin was on UST’s top five in the blocking department. Compared to her older sister, Jaja’s rookie year in Season 76 was more impressive. Jaja averaged 10.7 points per outing behind her Dindin (16.7), who was then on her last year after transferring to NU. Jaja had a 41.99% success rate in attacks – landing at second spot overall after Dindin’s (46.10%). The younger Santiago normed 0.50 kill blocks per set to anchor the Lady Bulldogs’ net defense.        TEAM IMPACT Dindin was a welcome addition to the Tigresses. However, playing in a squad filled with veterans left Dindin little room to display her full potential. Maizo and Tabaquero shared much of the scoring load while Maika Ortiz, Maru Banaticla and Judy Ann Caballejo provided the extra punch. But Dindin did play her role well as one of head coach Shaq delos Santos’ prized recruits. Dindin, indeed, made her presence felt in her own little way as UST climbed its way into the Finals. Jaja’s entry in Season 76 put NU as one of the top contenders to challenge the then reigning three-peat champion De La Salle University. Together with her sister, they formed NU’s dreaded twin towers and with the likes of Mina Aganon, Aiko Urdas and Myla Pablo, many predicted the Lady Bulldogs would make it all the way to the Finals. In fact, NU almost did before the Alyssa Valdez-led Ateneo de Manila University spoiled everything.      As a consolation for all her hard work, Jaja was the runaway winner of the Rookie of the Year award   COMPETITION Dindin played in a very competitive field. She took on a number of powerhitters and precision spikers like De La Salle University’s Big Three in Paneng Mercado, Jacq Alarca and Cha Cruz. Dindin also faced Adamson University’s Angela Benting and Pau Soriano, Ateneo had Dzi Gervacio and Fille Cainglet, Far Eastern University’s Cherry Vivas, NU’s Mervic Mangui, Mela Lopez of University of the Philippines and Kite Rosale of University of the East. Jaja, on the other hand, had to contend with an equally powerful field. Valdez was on a different level that season, so was DLSU with the trio of Ara Galang, Aby Marano and Mika Reyes. Bang Pineda was wreaking havoc for Adamson, FEU had Bernadeth Pons, Mela Tunay and Pam Lastimosa were the stars of UST, UP had their own towers in Kathy Bersola and Angeli Araneta while Shaya Adorador was UE’s standout.      LASTING IMPRESSION Dindin, of course, was the fortunate one among the siblings. She experienced the glory of winning championship after helping the Tigresses dethrone the Lady Spikers in her first year. That championship remains as UST’s last title to this day. But what really stuck was Dindin’s decision to jump ship a season after winning the crown. Dindin made the headlines when she left UST to join the Lady Bulldogs in a move that drew mixed reactions and a whole lot of speculations in what convinced her to drop the black and gold for NU’s colors. Dindin’s transfer was followed by Jaja committing to NU after a successful run with UST’s high school team. Jaja won the RoY award and helped NU move a win closer to a Finals appearance. The Lady Bulldogs were armed with a twice-to-beat advantage but NU’s twin towers and talents were not enough to overcome the steamrolling Lady Eagles. Jaja’s career started off at least on a good note considering how far NU advanced after years of frustrations. Jaja would eventually lead the Lady Bulldogs to two more Final Four appearance with their last in Season 80 – the same year when she bagged the Most Valuable Player award.     Now who’s the better rookie Santiago? Hard to tell. On one side, you have Dindin who won a championship while on the other you have Jaja with her individual accomplishments and accolades.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Ateneo stamps class on winless Letran to sweep PCCL 2020 elims

On the back of a 30-4 third quarter onslaught, Ateneo de Manila University pounded on Colegio de San Juan de Letran and powered its way to the Final Four of the 2020 Philippine Collegiate Champions League. From a tied tally at 35-all at the half, the Blue Eagles rang off 20 unanswered points that eventually ended as a convincing 79-61 victory, Saturday at Filoil Flying V Centre. As always, the UAAP champions got contributions from up and down the roster, with Dwight Ramos and Troy Mallillin showing the way this time around with the former finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, three steals, and two assists and the latter ending with 16 markers and six boards of his own. Still, they were actually chasing down the newly crowned kings of the NCAA after one and a half quarters before Ramos sparked a late charge to end the first half. And coming out of halftime, Ateneo just turned it up a notch and only allowed two makes on defense while burning down the nets on offense. Letran would never recover and saw its campaign come to a close without a win. The undefeated Blue Eagles now await the winner of the Visayas-Mindanao group for a semifinal showdown scheduled on March 7 at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. SJ Belangel chipped in 10 points as they ran through the gauntlet of UAAP and NCAA Finalists without a loss. Pao Javillonar fronted the effort for the Knights with 15 points. Without Larry Muyang and Ato Ular in this one, however, they didn't have enough firepower to match up with the Blue Eagles. BOX SCORES ATENEO 79 - D.

NCAA Season 95: Altas sweep elims for outright Finals seat

Another perfect elimination run, another outright trip to the Finals. Grand slam-seeking University of Perpetual Help completed a clean sweep of the elimination round for the second straight year after running over Letran, 25-14, 25-15, 25-18, on Thursday for an automatic championship seat in the NCAA Season 95 men’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Altas dominated the nine-game elims and extended its winning run to 22 straight since Season 93. Perpetual head coach Sammy Acaylar gave all his players playing time with top Most Valuable Player contender Louie Ramirez leading the way with 10 points built on eight attacks and two aces. Ronniel Rosales and Ridzuan Muhali added eight markers each for the Las Pinas-based squad, which rained down 42 attack points. “Sa nangyari sa amin ngayon di ko naman ini-expect,” said Acaylar. “Never sa mind ko na inisip na tatalunin ko ang lahat. Di ko iniisip yun. Iniisip ko lang one step at a time.” The Altas will have to wait longer for their best-of-three championship opponent after the league announced an indefinite suspension on all sporting events as a precautionary measure in light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Knights dropped to a 2-6 mark.   Christopher Cistina and Michael Doria finished with eight and seven points, respectively, for Letran. Meanwhile, Arellano University occupied the third Final Four seat after scoring a dramatic come-from-behind win over Emilio Aguinaldo College, 22-25, 23-25, 25-22, 25-21, 15-13, for a 6-2 win-loss record at third spot. Jesrael Liberato was instrumental in the Chiefs comeback, dropping 23 points off 18 attacks and five kill blocks while Christian Dela Paz and Kim Tan had 13 markers each. Skipper Christian Segovia added 11 points for Arellano U, which can force a playoff for a Final Four twice-to-beat advantage with a win over College of St. Benilde on Monday. The Generals remained at second spot with a 7-2 slate to close their elims campaign but the defeat put EAC in a precarious position of falling into a playoff for the twice-to-beat advantage. Joshua Mina scored 27 points with 17 digs and 24 excellent receptions in a lost cause for the Generals. Aeron Daduya had 16 markers, Danrich Melad finished with 14 while Mark Cabacang posted 12 for EAC.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

San Beda gets payback on Letran for first win in PCCL

Calvin Oftana came through in a must-win game in the 2020 Philippine Collegiate Champions League NCAA-UAAP Challenge as San Beda University cut archrival Colegio de San Juan de Letran down to size for a convincing 76-53 victory, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre. Oftana topped the scoring column with 17 points and took charge elsewhere also with nine rebounds, six assists, four steals, and three blocks to make sure the Red Lions got some sort of payback on the Knights who dethroned them in last year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Ralph Penuela also turned in 16 points while Peter Alfaro had his own 12 markers as the red and white's speed trumped the NCAA champions' size this time around. "I'm just happy that the whole team is really playing as a team," he said. In all, San Beda totaled 19 points in transition compared to its opponent's two. That pace took Letran out of its game and boosted the Red Lions into evening its record to 1-1. Despite the convincing victory, however, coach Boyet knew full well they haven't seen the best of their archrivals yet. "Well, they're not really in shape right now. We all know they will be a very good team come NCAA," he said. Still, the Knights remained winless in two tries in this tournament. Jeo Ambohot paced them in this one with 13 points and seven rebounds.

Teeth and claws were all out for University of Sto.

CJ Cansino and Soulemane Chabi Yo were at the forefront of the 30-point rout with the former finishing with 13 points, four rebounds, three steals, and two assists and the latter ending with a 12-marker, 10-board double-double.

NCAA Season 95: San Beda back on the right track

Cesca Racraquin dropped 22 points as San Beda University snapped a two-game skid at the expense of hapless Emilio Aguinaldo College, 25-15, 25-16, 27-25, in the NCAA Season 95 women’s volleyball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan on Monday. The seasoned hitter unleashed 18 kills, three aces and a kill block in  the Lady Red Spikers’ bounce back win after bowing down to three-time defending champion Arellano University and unbeaten College of St. Benilde. She laced her all-around performance with nine digs and seven excellent receptions as San Beda moved up to solo fourth spot with a 4-2 win-loss record, strengthening its Final Four bid with just three outings left for the Lady Red Spikers. Helping out Racraquin were Nieza Viray, who got 13 points including 11 from attacks, and the pair of Kim Manzano and Trisha Paras, who combined for 14 markers for San Beda, which will still face University of Perpetual Help, Mapua University and Lyceum of the Philippines University. Lynne Matias tallied 19 excellent sets to help the Lady Red Spikers convert 47 attack points. The Lady Generals dropped their sixth straight game to remain as the only squad that has yet to taste victory.
