This early, some kids are already plying their skills in various schools in the hope of admission.

Who is trying to go where?

Last night, I heard six (6) prospective players joined the Ateneo practices at Moro.

Any word that is not too confidential?

Just got word that Green of Letran plus another pointguard from Letran also were there.

Salamat from Baste was also there daw and so was Hermida from Beda.

There were two others unidentified.

Any feedback?

Among those who tried out last night, Salamat and this other 16 yr old player were the most impressive. Salamat showed spunk and gutsiness specially on defense. The 16 yr old had good fundamentals. I was impressed with his penetration and shooting skills. At 6-3 and a legitimate wingman, he could be the next Larry F. Green was not that impressive since he committed a lot of errors and found it hard penetrating the defense of QUimson, and the other ateneo big men. Hermida had good dribbling skills but but he was eaten up by Yuri, Jai, and Pao in defense. The other 2 guards are not yet that impressive. I'll take the boys from Team B anytime at this point except for the 2 players I mentioned above.

Hmm, so ang Ateneo pala pinapapelan pati si Hermida... Akala ko pa mandin sureball ng UE siya... Ang tanong, makapasa kaya ng entrance exam ng Ateneo...?

Ganun din si Salamat. Magaling talaga 'yan, matangkad pa for a guard, pwedeng legit na 2/3, pero again, ewan lang kung umubra sa entrance exam ng Ateneo.

Would Yuri have a place in Ateneo's roster next year? Mukhang loaded na ang Ateneo sa guards with Escalona, Bughao, Reyes. Is Chris Tiu expected to suit up next year?

full battle gear,


Final roster will be out at least 2 wks to 4 wks before the UAAP season starts next year. At this point, it's still early to tell. It will also depend on the composition of the other teams and the bias of Norman Black come summer '06. If he wants a pure point guard, then Yuri is a prime candidate but if he wants a combo guard then he might consider other options.

Yuri has good ballhandling skills and has the pass first mentality. The downside in his game is he often panics during a press and he still doesn't have a consistent outside shot.

Yuri Escueta is a pure pointguard, rare commodity lately sa UAAP, kung saan sandamakmak ang mga two-guards masquerading as pure points gaya nina LA Tenorio, Marvin Cruz at Jonas Villanueva. So kung sa aspeto na 'yan lamang si Escueta. Ang tanong: Kailangan ba ng Ateneo ng pure pointguard? May Macky Escalona, Ronnie Bughao at Chris Tiu pa sila next year, three players who can play either the 1 or 2 with equal ease, although hindi sila mga pure pointguards like Escueta. Si Escalona sa totoo lang mas 2 kaysa 1, undersized na Dos nga lang. Si Tiu halfbaked na 5'11" pero may pointguard skills, problema lang hindi siya natural na Uno. Si Bughao, hmm... pointguard sa biglang tingin pero dapat siguro palitan ang apelyido niya, Ronnie Bwakhao...

HAHHAHAHAHA... true enough, medyo he's (Blue Bughao) a shoot first point guard... reminiscent of Jonathan Reyes season where we had 5-2 record in the first round, dahil of Bughao... then we had a complete turnaround naman nung second round 2-5, we barely made the play-offs ... teka hindi pala kami nakarating sa playoffs nung year na iyon.... hehehehe

Nabasa na kasi ang laro ni Bughao, by second round alam lung kailan siya titira kaya nabantayan na ng husto..

Ah yes, the enigmatic Ronnie Bughao, great player who mysteriously fell out of grace in San Beda and somehow resurrected his starcrossed career in Ateneo. Will wonders never cease.

Ronnie Bughao is a well-built 5'10" 2-way guard equally adept setting the play or finishing it. He's got the strength, quickness, athleticism and smarts that ensures he will have a long and very productive career in the PBA, if not perhaps make a breakthrough in an overseas league. He can score on slashing lay-ups as easily as on 26-foot treys. His defense is underrated. He has unquestioned toughness and a streetsmart approach to breaking down plays.

So why was he so ignominiously run out of Beda...?

Rumors abound of course, about his, uh, pliable scrupples, his unwillingness to listen to coaches, his tendencies to ballhog and create plays for himself, his less than sterling academic credentials. Any or a combination of these ar often cited for his ungracious exit from Mendiola.

So why is he in Ateneo...?

Recruitment slides aside, Ateneo has remained perhaps one of only two or three major basketball schools not tainted by allegations of bending over backwards academically just to line up a talented baller (At least not in the last 20 or so years). Letran dropped Ronjay Enrile this season (his leadership to their 2003 crown notwithstanding). UST dropped Jemal Vizcara (presently on their Team B). Both because of academic deficiencies.

Ironic isn't it?

Ronnie Bughao apparently is no longer good enough for San Beda, but has become good enough for Ateneo, all the excess baggage notwithstanding.

Hopefully San Beda can keep its big lion paws on their other talents. The wings of the eagle spread far and wide indeed...

10-27-2005, 10:34 PM
Walanjo, wala pa man sa UAAP tila sikat na ang Ronnie Bughao a, whew!

Sabagay, totoo namang talented na manlalaro si Bughao. Totoo ding may pagkabwakaw siya. Totoo ding hindi naman siya ganung katalino, mistulang hindi pang-Ateneo. Totoo ding may ilang kontrobersiya tungkol sa kanyang ugali bilang manlalaro.

PERO...!

Ako naman ay naniniwala na ang lahat ng tao dapat bigyan ng pangalawang pagkakataon. Kahit na ano pang nakaraan ni Bughao, hindi naman siguro kampon ni Satanas ang taong ito para habambuhay ng hindi pagkatiwalaan lalo na pagdating sa laro.

Ang aking lang sana naman magtino na si Bughao sa second chance niya. Ilang tao bang makapagyayabang na ang SECOND CHANCE nila sa ATENEO pa!

10-28-2005, 01:29 AM
No doubt about it, Bughao is a good player.. He almost had a triple double in his first NCAA game.. Won rookie of the year too.. Ballhog (almost every basketball team naman meron ata), but one of the better one-on-one players I've seen.. Especially when bumu-boogie na si Bughao.. ;D

With respect to Ronnie, he wasn't ran out of the Lion's den.. He chose to leave..

It was his personal decision to leave, just as he personally decided to leave FEU before he went to us..

And according to cackler, he is doing well in Ateneo.. Both with acads and hoops.. So let's just leave it at that..

You guys can speculate all you want why he left, but I'm not one to badmouth a former Bedan..

Bottomline: He left on his own..

MargaretThrasher
10-28-2005, 12:53 PM
I agree with Wang-Bu, everyone deserves a second chance, and hope that Bughao won't screw it up. Hopefully this


And according to cackler, he is doing well in Ateneo.. Both with acads and hoops..
will show that he's working hard not to throw away this second chance, and that Ateneo isn't compromising its academic standards just to field a competitive basketball team.

If LaSalle is forced to shut down their basketball team for more than a year, some of the players in team B should think about transfering to an NCAA school. Take the case of Walsham, he will be 22-23 years old before he can play again. He will loose his competitive edge. He was away from the daily grind of practices when he left for Australia and he was out of shape by the time he returned to Manila.

Marko will not go anywhere. No school in the NCAA can afford the support he is receiving unless his padrino ok's a transfer to Benilde.

Di ba it was featured sa Channel 2 nun that they live in Discovery Suites for each Team A player, tapos they can basically order anything they want for food... tapos in contrast a player from NU was shown waking up from his humble shack....

Fampulme and Daroya are basically cut from the same cloth. Both are relatively undersized power forwards who get it done with tenacity and relentlessness. Both of them are in the nearly-6'3" range but have good springs and great instincts for the ball. Daroya even has the added advantage of a consistent jump shot from up to 17 feet and adequate dribbling skills. I was once told (forgot by who) that Daroya is actually Marlou Aquino's cousin and is a practice player for Sta Lucia. These two guys belong in the regular rotation of any NCAA or UAAP contender if only for their hard work and hardcore style, like Jerwin Gaco. Daroya could start for UST or even Adamson and would be the real star on NU even with Edwin Asoro there. Fampulme could be the best undersized center in the UAAP and would be at worst the first guy off the bench for a team like UP, even if they still had Abi Santos.

One of the top prizes in the transferee market has finally committed to play for the University of the East.

Barring any last-minute change of heart, West Negros College Mustang Severino Baclao, a 6'4" long-limbed center/forward, will transfer to the Red Warriors after finishing his commitments with the Bacolod City-based school. The Mustangs will represent Region VI in the coming PRISAA Nationals this month in Dagupan City, Pangasinan.

Baclao has been courted by other top NCAA and UAAP schools for the last two school years. He is expected to add depth to UE's frontline in UAAP 70. Arriving for UAAP 69 are a pair of 6'4" former PSBA-QC Jaguars in Laurence Briones and Hans Theile.

Time will tell if Ateneo recruited the right big man for their program, the Cebuano tsinoy over the Bacolodnon tsinoy. The rumor is that LaSalle stashed a a very young but very tall provincial recruit in one of the Manila Chinese high schools. His upside is apparently very bright because he is making a name for himself in the Tiong Lian league at a very tender age. Can his current coach influence him to play for UP where the coach played varsity ball together with coach Lipa? ??? Let us all wait for season '72!

This is why ADMU recruiters are happy about the Cebuano boys, recruits J and S.* Both players are real student athletes in the true sense.* Passing the ACET is not the problem.* Finding space on the very crowded varsity roster is the problem but both players are aware of the competition and know they may spend a year on team glory be.* If recruit J makes varsity, it will be ironic that he will bypass another Cebuano recruit among others who also previously played for San Carlos.

Other coaches would love to have the problem of Norman Black.

Sa dami ng forward ng Ateneo sa MGA team nila (balita namin kaya nilang bumuo ng tatlong kumpletong team) mahihirapan si Co mag-first five o mag-Team A man lang doon. La Salle sana dahil kulang sila sa malalaking tao at nandoon na ang pinsan niyang si Kish Co, pero dahil alanganin nga ang situasyon nila sa UAAP, medyo sugal kung doon siya pupunta. Sa UP naman, matindi rin ang pangangailangan at siguradong Team A agad siya roon.

Yup, Fampulme and the other shooting guard from Lyceum were there.

The kids from Central Luzon and Visayas also showed up. I was very much impressed with the latter -cat quick, deadly shooter from the arc. He could break into Team A already with his advance skills.

... Sources confirmed that Miguel de Asis, Martin Reyes and Dan Salvador, in fact, have tried out for the University of the Philippines Maroons, who are now coached by Joe Lipa.

Reports reaching The STAR showed that the three made it to the 20-man pool, which will be trimmed down to 14 or 15 come Season 69 of the UAAP cage wars this June.

Two more starters of that team–Fil-Brit Simon Atkins and David Urra–might not make the Archers fold reportedly because the two didn’t do well in La Salle’s entrance examination...

... Aldeguer also denied reports that three of his players–Joshua Webb, Aldo Maliksi and Gio Espina–are also planning to transfer in the NCAA. San Beda is reportedly courting Webb and Espina while Maliksi might transfer to La Salle-Greenhills if La Salle is suspended.

The UST bball program is in disarray. There is no clearcut goal much less a blue print to achieve that goal. The pipeline has turned into a pipe dream and the season is fast going down the drain. A complete and absolute failure in season '69 may just be what UST needs to realize the root of the problem . And it goes higher than the coach's position. But who will fire the decision makers?

Traditional UAAP power houses University of the East and University of the Philippines are already looking forward to Season 69 and beyond with some hot new recruits expected to be cornerstones for their respective varsity teams for the next couple of years.

UP is training Magi Sison, a long-limbed 6'6" center-forward, together with Virgilio Serios, a strapping 6'4" banger. Both players are seeing action for UP Team B in the ongoing Fr Martin 2 tournament, competing against other UAAP and NCAA B Teams, aside from traditional mid-major league powerhouses such as Arellano University and Lyceum. Sison is still learning the intricacies of post efficiency, ditto Serios, but they are both full of promise, bringing a blue collar work ethic to their version of on-the-job training. Although they bowed to the Arellano Flaming Arrows 77-54, Sison and Serios more than held their own against the seasoned frontline of Orlan Daroya and Lee Boliver.

UE on the other hand is looking at a whole platoon of complimentary athletes for their runner-jumper UAAP cagers. As if Mark Borboran, Elmer Espiritu and Bon Custodio aren't trouble enough, the Warriors have at least four up and coming youngsters in Fashanfor Bandaying, Eric Lopez, Lawrence Briones, and Hahs Thielle. These "Four Horsemen" are currently completing residency requirements while also seeing action for the UE B Team in the Fr Martin 2. Bandaying is particularly impressive, as he presided over an 86-50 demolition of San Beda Alabang in their morning game last Saturday, 10 September at the FEU Gym in Manila. Bandaying had a spectacular two-handed slam off a fastbreak and was virtually unstoppable with a variety of curls and spins in the post.

The good development of Sison and Serios are critical for the Maroons as they will lose Abbi Santos and Mike Gavino next season, leaving them with a thin frontline. Sison and Serios are expected to at least provide defensive presence in the lane and get some rebounds in future UAAP wars. Sison is working on some drop steps and up-and-under moves to keep opposing defenses honest, but it is his length and timing for blocks that excites fans and scouts alike. Serios, on the other hand, should bring some much-needed heft to the UP frontline.

UE is looking at Bandaying to combine with Borboran for a fearsome, tall and athletic combination at the forward and center spots, while Lopez, Briones, and Thielle will likely give opposing second units fits with their strength and athleticism at the 3 and 4 spots. Lopez and Briones are particularly intriguing as they also bring a physical dimension to their game, something the rest of the UAAP would be well-advised to note this early. With the Four Horsemen on the way, UE's high octane backcourt should have even more targets for entry and outlet passes to open up close games and tight defenses.

Overall, the future looks bright for both the Red Warriors and the Fighting Maroons. From a larger picture perspective, this new wave of talent should bring even more fans into the stands.

And as for fans of hardcore basketball, you heard it here first. If you want to catch the future of Pinoy hoops unfolding before your eyes, check out the Fr Martin Cup 2, at either the FEU or San Beda Gyms in Manila.

Satisfaction guaranteed.

Hmmm.

Interesting development on the UE front.

But have they solved their point guard rotation?

UE supposedly signed a player from West Negros College and the son of Elmer Reyes who was a teammate of Salamat at San Sebastian last year.

I wonder if the star player of the UE pages 2 years ago will finally get a chance to play guard for the Warriors. His dad was a star player for UE and coached the seniors prior to the hiring of Dindo Pumaren.

The UST bball program is in disarray.* There is no clearcut goal much less a blue print to achieve that goal.* The pipeline has turned into a pipe dream and the season is fast going down the drain.* A complete and absolute failure in season '69 may just be what UST needs to realize the root of the problem .* And it goes higher than the coach's position.* But who will fire the decision makers?
If Salamat lands in the Eagle's nest what then will happen to Yuri? Ateneo has an overflowing supply of PGs and 2 Guards. In fact some of them, like Salamat, can easily switch positions. So why is Ateneo still going after Salamat? You have two PGs in Escalona and Esqueta, a combo guard in Bughao and Jai, and 2 guards who can play the 3 in Ken and Tiu. So why the need for another combo guard?

Let him go to Espana instead :D

Kung sino o ilan man ang mga guards na kasalukuyang nasa Ateneo, the fact is, Salamat has 5 years of varsity eligibility ahead of him.

Imagine a kid that good able to play for you for the next 5 years!

Granting that he may not be ripe for next season, tha fact is ( na naman ), the current guards of Ateneo will not be playing for the next 5 years. If they get Samalat, it solves part of the problem in talent turnover.

I suppose every team has a short, medium and long term plan/ program. Salamat's skills will fit in any of those 3 time tables.

Btw, San Sebastian is in the semis of the National Inter-Secondary. Venue is the RMC. Semis bukas, 24Feb then Finals sa Sabado. Take time to watch the games.

Just to entice you, DLS-Zobel is also playing. San Beda rin. At PCU. One of the rare opportunities to see the likes of Salamat, Atkins, Hermida, and Mangahas ang Sumera of PCU. All will be college freshmen next school year. Chance to make your personal scouting/ assessment.

See the thread on the National Students Basketball C'ship for the skeds.

Mateen Cleaves, can you also confirm that Gameface Hardcore Player for the 30th Tiong Lian Basketball Association Tournament Carl Cua is reportedly in talks with UP? It was rumored before that La Salle has been eyeing this kid since last year but with what's happening with the greenies, Carl apparently is now looking at UP after realizing that he is probably too small for a 3 position in Ateneo. If he indeed decides to go to UP, he most probably team up with Gameface Statistical MVP Woody Co. Hmmmm...2 of the best players from Tiong Lian going to UP? - not a bad scenario.

Looks like Joe Lipa has gained some ground for being the commissioner of Tiong Lian.

UP is not done recruiting. For example, former UE Page Porlaje was in the gym just recently. Trying out as a POINT guard!

BUT unless he's a truly exceptional talent (or physical specimen), say Atkins or some new 6'6" find from the provinces, I would have to say that the current crop of incoming freshmen and Team B prospects already have a leg up on him. Coach Joe's system has a pretty steep learning curve. The earlier you start on it, the better. As it is, Woody already has a lot of catching up to do. What more for Cua? From what I've heard, Charles Tiu is not the basketball prospect his brother was.

Keep an eye on the UPCAT results, expected to be out in the next few days. If Carl Cua is on that list, then UP has the option to invite him to walk-on without expending one of the VAAS scholarships on him. But as things stand, if Carl Cua ends up going elsewhere, I think that UP would still be pretty satisfied with the crop of wing men that they recruited this year.

If you want to check them out, UP is signed up to play in the Metro Ball tournament as Wang's Ball Club, and in the PICAA for the La Campana group. One batch of recruits will be in the Metro Ball line-up, the rest will play with the veterans in the PICAA team. Their first Metroball game was scheduled for last night, but postponed (for obvious reasons) to Tuesday at the Reyes gym.

Coach Bert is trying very hard to get new material. Gerilla came from UV. Coach Boy Cabahug told me that FEU tries to get from his farm team as he has 50 players in his stable. Coach Bert is now open to looking at players below 20 years old for possible growing into the player that he wants. His team B is being culled. After the graduation this march expect to see new faces at the gym before the culling starts in September.

My two cents worth. :)

^ Sa apelyido palang mukhang mas sanay managalog 'tong batang 'to. Baka ma OP sya sa Ateneo. Sa USTe di masyadong madaming english-speaking students di katulad sa Katipunan (kaya di ako nag-Ateneo :D). Sa USTe, di sya mahihirapan makipag-usap sa mga chikas. Gosh...

Pero seryoso, Salamat have better chances at shining in the Tigers' line-up even if UST has what appears to be an overflow of talent in the 2-3 spot. If Jarencio decides to employ a running game, I think he can easily come in and contribute immediately as part of the Ababou-Duncil-Vizcarra-Taylor-Gile-Espiritu-Evangelista running team. With that line-up, swift ball movement is more important than PG play, who can impede the break by picking up the dribble instead of looking at a possible foward pass. That exactly is what makes Cuan ineffective. Somewhere in his huge cranium is the belief that a good dribbler = good PG (Vizcarra is another player who easily falls in love with his "skilz". Of course all great guards have very good handles. But better decision making is wht makes them great. That is where Cuan and Crisostomo failed miserably. There is more hope in Cortez but he can't seem to play extended minutes.

The new UAAP rule requires all PEPTEST takers to redshirt during their freshman year. The schools are also required to use the one year redshirt period to verify the credentials of the players are kosher. In the case of Benitez, he redshirted his freshman year at LaSalle but nobody in LaSalle bothered to verify the authenticity of his credentials. I am not sure if Gatchalian also was a red shirt at LaSalle though he came in as a freshman together with Benitez.

Benitez and Gatchalian didn't redshirt their freshmen year at LaSalle which was supposed to be in 2002. They were in limbo in 2002, obviously having problems with their 4th year high school grades. They entered LaSalle as freshmen in 2003.

Now that our very own Carmelo Afuang Zizi is in the UST FMC line up i hope that Coach Pido Dido Jarencio would find him a spot for Team A or keep him in Team B the least. At 6'2" he played as a small forward in the Cubs i hope he can transcend into a 2 in order to crack team A and be competitive at UAAP. His advantage is that he was used to banging bodies, he can play with physical opponents mano y mano. He should just improve and work on his speed and agility, for a 6'2" player that would come easy.
