Opening day will reportedly be on January 21 with a game between Ateneo and La Salle at the Blue Eagle Gym.

More details to follow later.* Anybody out there with more info?

Sino-sino kayang mga mala-lineup sa H & A ng San Beda?

For Beda sana naman lineup na nila ang mga veterans along with some deserving candidates: ESCOBAL, EKWE, BURTSCHER, TAUPA, SUGITAN, GALINATO, ESPINOSA, AL JAMMAL, MAGGAY, ANGELES, ANTONIO, MENOR, TAGANAS, CANLAS, GAMALINDA. Iwan ako ng isang slot for a surprise guy.

Sino kaya nasa lineups ng Ateneo, Lasalle at FEU?

Tsaka bakit nga pala kasali Lasalle? Sa totoo lang konting delikadeza naman, hindi pa nga naayos ang huling gulo sa UAAP sasama na naman ang Lasalle sa liga. E baka mamaya meron na namang hindi totoong estudyante diyan, mahiya naman tayo sa ibang eskwela.

San Beda will be using the same team fielded in Father Martin's Open. Which I think means Angeles and Aljamal won't be in the lineup.

All opening games will reportedly be at the Emilio Aguinaldo College.

The January 27 H&A game is tentatively set to be an Ateneo home game. Hindi pa naman ito ang game 2 natin. Incidentally, San Beda and Ateneo will face each other again on the 28th sa San Beda Gym sa FMC. Special request ata ng Beda to coincide with our annual Fiesta ng Sto Nino.

May suspecha ako mahahlo at mahahti na naman ang mga lineup ng Home and Away gawa ng ongoing pang PBL. Alam ko hindi masyado trip ng mga PBL Owners and managers na magpahiram ng players at least for the H & A, lalo na kung hindi naman school-based team ang PBL team. So for instance hindi yata ire-release ang mga kagaya ni Al Jammal ng Welcoat, o kaya si Marcy Arellano ng Harbour. May suspecha ako kung talagang school-based team like Toyota Otis or Hapee papayag naman ang mga owners and managers kasi nga school-based tournament naman ito at hindi commercial league gaya ng PBL.

Kaya maaring makita pa din natin ang mga gaya nina Boyet Bautista, Aaron Aban, Gabby Espinas at Jason Castro sa H & A. Sana nga naman para mas masaya, tsaka siempre para naman tumaas ang kalidad ng panonoorin nating laro. Tagilig naman yata kung ang team na gaya ng Ateneo or Arellano may almost-intact lineup with Intal, Kramer, Escalona et al then Daroya, Boliver, Martinez et al, tapos ang makakalaban nila mga Team B ng ibang schools, mismatch masyado 'yon.

Tsaka bakit nga pala may women's division? E mukhang puro UAAP schools lang ang mamamayagpag diyan sa babae, lalo na Adamson at FEU.

RLdiehard
01-20-2006, 09:29 AM
We will not see Bautista, Aban of Letran & Espinas, Castro of PCU because the 2 schools are not included in the team line up of the Home & Away League. Only 2 schools from the NCAA were invited by the organizers, w/c are San Beda & CSB. Arellano is also not included. It was also agreed upon that teams can put up 20 players on their line up & the only limitation is that they can not field veteran PBL plyers, but teams can let theur rookie PBL stand out play in the HAIL.

Results of games today, January 21.* EAC gym.

College of St. Benilde def. Lyceum, 83-74.

San Beda def. FEU, 79-53.

EAC def. UE, 77-71 in overtime.* Regulation ended at 65-all.

Ateneo def. La Salle, 77-67.

Servinio's Notes:

UE @ EAC
- Marcy Arellano missed a lay-up with four seconds to go sending the game into overtime, 65-65
- Ferdinand Melocoton hits a big triple with 1:12 left in the OT as the winning break of the game, 73-70.* From there, the Generals iced the game from the foul line

CSB vs. Lyceum
- the Blazers were led by former UP-Diliman Team B player Garri Sevilla with 27 points, Gerald Layug and Martin Urra with 12 points each
- as usual, the Pirates anchored all their plays on Mark Fampulme's 23 points.* Ram Perry Scott added 16 points.

San Beda vs. FEU
- it was a blowout, period
- the Red Lions have mastered FEU's Team B since the Father Martin Division II.* Not even the presence of reinforcements from the UAAP champion team helped
-* San Beda had a very balanced attack, with three players leading the way with only 10 points each -- Ogie Menor, Jay-R Taganas and . . . Raymund Maggay!
- RB Mangahas led FEU with 15 followed by JR Gerilla with 10 points

Ateneo vs. DLSU
- it was a pair of former San Beda players that did the trick for Ateneo.* Ronnie Bughao sizzled with 29 points while Yuri Escueta delivered the key shots to cool the Archers' final rally in the fourth period.
- DLSU started with a 9-4 lead
- Ateneo fought back and led for good, 17-15, on a Bughao triple
- the closest DLSU could get was 42-44 in the third quarter
- Eman Nazareno delivered the "knockout" blow, a triple with 1:15 left for a 71-60 tally!
- Bughao sizzled with 29 points. Jai Reyes added 11 markers, highlighted by a four-point play wtih four minutes left in the game
- Peejay Barua and Rico Maierhofer led DLSU with 19 and 14 points respectively

That was taken around the time of the last NCAA/UAAP season.

As long as the mighty San Beda Red Lions play, red will be the order of the day. You can say that I maintain several "official" San Beda game-watching shirts, especially those with "winning records". I usually wear any matching cap whenever I feel lazy to fix my hair.

By the way, I hope the HAIL organizers would find a way that allows host teams could choose the time they want to hold their games. It would be tough to follow four HAIL games held at the same time in four venues scattered all over Metro Manila. From what I gather, the UE @ UST game this Friday will be held at 10:00AM upon agreement of both teams instead of the mandated 4:00PM start. There could be a morning game, an afternoon game and an evening game to enable fans to soak in as much action as possible.

Home and Away action got underway and gameface.ph was right there to cover the action. It was a great afternoon for hardcore hoops. The game I most thoroughly enjoyed was the EAC-UE encounter and it was a doozy!

Melocoton was unconscious bombing away from long range to give EAC the win over a UE squad that was virtually intact, including PBL mainstay Marcy Arellano. Something tells me UE did not take EAC very seriously, especially with their erratic play in the end game. I couldn't believe UE wasn't covering on the perimeter, especially on Melocoton, one of the best clutch shooters in the NCRAA.

That's just the first game day, we'll have plenty more on the way.

Expect a shootout whenever the two best shooters in the women's game meet. Kristine Alon-alon and Stephanie Villanueva have been rivals at the long ball for the past couple of years. That they play for (respectively) Lasalle and Ateneo, only serves to heighten the rivalry.

In the ongoing HAIL, Villanueva got the better of Alon-alon, as the defending champion Lady Eagles shut Lasalle down in the third quarter to come from 22 points down and pull off a thrilling 67-62 win at the Razon Sports Center off the DLSU main campus in Taft.

Lasalle went on a tear behind the offense of Alon-alon to go up 39-20 at halftime only to run into the patented scrambling defense of Ateneo in the third period. The Lady Archers were shut down for eight minutes, managing a measly three of six freethrows for their offense in the third. By the time the fourth quarter rolled around Villanueva had found the range and shot Ateneo bakc into the game with help from mainstays Cassandra Tioseco and spitfirish newcomer Treena Limgenco. Katrina Quimpo led Ateneo with 15 points, Villanueva had 14, while Tioseco and Limgenco had 12 each. Alon-alon led Lasalle with 18.

THE NCRAA yesterday announced that defending champion Emilio Aguinald College Generals have been suspended for the balance of the league's 13th season and all their games forfeited.

The reason: the Generals violated an NCRAA rule banning its players from seeing action in other leagues during the duration of the tournament. EAC entered its entire team in the Home and Away Invitational League (HAIL).

EAC is appealing the decision.


That's a wrong move, the HAIL is a developmental league and should not be considered! :-[

Here is the article:


NCRAA bans Aguinaldo; games canceled
abs-cbnnews.com

Games of the 13th National Capital Region Athletic Association menís basketball tournament were canceled Thursday after league officials voted to suspend Emilio Aguinaldo College for the rest of the season.

NCRAA president Tisha Abundo of the Philippine School of Business Administration said sanctions were imposed on EAC because it violated a league rule prohibiting its players from joining other leagues while the NCRAA season is in progress.

EAC, the defending champion in menís basketball, was also competing in the ongoing matches of the Home and Away Invitational League (HAIL), prompting the NCRAA board to impose the sanction on the Generals.

"We suspended the games today so we can work out a new schedule without EAC and determine where to hold the games for the rest of the season," said Abundo after an emergency meeting with members of the NCRAA Board late Wednesday.

"While we feel sorry for them [EAC], we have rules that must be followed."

Because of this, the EAC Sports Center will no longer be the venue of all basketball games and other events of the NCRAA while EAC is serving out its suspension.

Abundo said basketball games will resume momentarily on Tuesday at the Arellano University gym. Volleyball games will resume at the San Andres Sports and Civic Center on Monday.

Sports officials from EAC are appealing the case before the NCRAA for reconsideration, but the board appears steadfast.

"We cannot just throw our rules out of the window. EAC is a great loss, no doubt about it. But to bend our own rules now would make a mockery of our institution because it could set a bad precedent in the future that it would be just okay to defy our own regulations," said Abundo.

Kawawa naman EAC. Di ba nila alam na may ganung rule sa NCRAA? Baka naman kasi di nila alam na may ganung rule pala. Unless EAC was stupid enough to forcefully violate that rule. Kung alam naman nila siguro yun, I think they won't push their players to see action as well in HAIL.

According to the Gameface source, Vizcarra made a lot of turnovers because he was freelancing and held the ball too much. UE pressed the entire game and good ball movement was needed to counter it.

Syempre naman. This shouldn't be used as main barometer on how a team will perform come UAAP or NCAA time. As we all know, this is a training ground for most of the teams and this is also a try out stage for those players who want to make the UAAP or NCAA cut for next season.

I was just informed that Ateneo won both games. Men's game score: 73-71. The Eagles were actually behind most of the game until a rally in the last 6 minutes of the game behind the heroics of Yuri Escueta and Jobe Nkemakolam. Aguilar did the damage on the defensive end.

02-05-2006, 02:59 PM
Margaret,

No real damage on Johann's face. ;)

That incident occured during the last 5 minutes of the game. Prior to that, Ateneo was trailing Lyceum all throughout. They couldn't seem to adjust to the calls (yup, lousy as ever) that were being made by the refs.

After that, Team Ateneo probably decided no team will come into their home and disrespect them like that. They played with more fire, more passion. Yuri provided the go-ahead basket by hitting a trey to put Ateneo ahead for the first time, 65-63. No more lead changes after that. Final score was 74-71.

Props to Yuri who was fearless in taking the ball strong and taking shots no one else wanted to attempt. Courage. Kudos to Jobe who was unstoppable in the post. Kudos to Japeth for ensuring that no easy lay-ups were going to be made as long as he was in the game.

Anak ng pitong pating talagang mga bata ni Coach Boni Tan. Dadalaw sa bahay ng may bahay tapos manggugulo pa. Oh well, in a way ayos lang 'yan, para naman maalala ng mga Atenista na marami pa ding gago sa daigdig na hindi nasisindak sa pagiging Atenista ng isang tao, lalo na sa basketball. Pero sa totoo lang parang mas masaya ang ginawang sermon ni Boni duon sa bata niyang nanapak kay Johann. Nagbalik-loob na kasi kay Lord si Boni, Bro Boni na siya, isang lay minister sa isang parokya sa Cubao area.

Ginawang asintahan ng FEU Lady Tams ang so-called defending champion Ateneo Lady Eagles sa FEU nung Sabado. 65-50 yata ang score, basta malayo. Mga veterans ni Mike Oliver ang kumamada para sa FEU, gaya nila Jose, Adriano, Rivera at Mercado. Mukhang asa pa rin ng asa ang Ateneo sa mga beterana nila kahit na hindi na makakalaro sa UAAP gaya nila Villanueva at Matreo. Malas pa ng Ateneo at natapilok 'yung sentro nilang si Tioseco. Mahina pang dalawang pinagmamalaki ng Ateneo, 'yung Limgenco at Indigne, mukhang hiindi pa sanay sa pisikalang laro at nawawala pa sa sistema ni John Flores, lalo na sa depensa. Si Indigne halos gawing fulcrum nina Nido at isa pang bagong big girl ng FEU, at andali niyang pitasan ng bola. Kailangan pa niyang magpalakas ng katawan.

Sa Men's game naman nung same game day niyari nina RV Mangahas at Jonas Villanueva ang Ateneo. Mukhang wala pa sa ayos ang laro ng Ateneo, o baka naman malas lang talaga nung Sabado, malapit lang ang laro 74-71 yata ang final score for FEU. Hataw 'yung Mangahas, kumamada ng tres, naka-apat yata, pwera pa sa mga big rebounds at depensa sa loob. Partida na 'yan at walang totoong sentro ang FEU samantalang naka-twin towers ang Ateneo with Japeth Aguilar at Rabbeh Al-Hussaini. Matindi talaga si Villanueva, nasisira ang laro ng FEU kapag wala siya sa sahig. Ang siste lang diyan, papano na ang FEU kapag na-foul trouble o ma-injure siya?

Red Lions, Lady Eagles unbeaten in HAIL caging

The Philippine Star 02/14/2006

Pre-tournament favorite San Beda College played true to form, even as Emilio Aguinaldo College hacked out another impressive win on the road to stay in the upper half of the standings at the resumption of the Home and Away Invitational League late last week.

The EAC Generals didnít disappoint their homecrowd as it turned back Ateneo de Manila, 64-57, while the SBC Red Lions bucked a hostile crowd to turn back College of St. Benilde, 70-57.

In womenís basketball action, Ateneoís Lady Eagles trounced the Lady Generals, 88-58, for its third straight win in the only home-and-away collegiate league backed by Adidas, the official outfitter, and Sunbolt, the official drink.

The Red Lions also rolled to their third straight triumph in the menís side, thanks to another inspired game by starters Roger Menor, who finished with 18 points and the hulking Jay-R Taganas, who added 10.

Carmelo Manding led the Blazers with 11, but was the only player in CSBís side to score in double-digits, with Gerald Layug as the next highest scorer with eight. With the loss, the Blazers dropped to a 1-2 card in a tie with the University of the East and La Salle.

Gester Ebuen led three other Generals with double digit scores against the badly outclassed Ateneo Blue Eagles. Ebuen topscored with 16, while John Ronald Valderama chipped in 13, and Nichole Hubalde and Mark Du added 10 apiece.

Guard Jai Reyes led Ateneo with 13.

From HAIL:


FEU, San Beda strike againFar Eastern University and San Beda College continued to sizzle, posting easy victories on their home fronts to stay entrenched at the top two spots in men's basketball in the Home and Away Invitational League.

The FEU Tamaraws gave University of Sto.Tomas a rude welcome via a 83-69 win, even as the SBC Red Lions trounced the visiting Emilio Aguinaldo College, 77-53, in yet another day of the favorites in the tournament
sponsored by Adidas, the official outfitter, and Sunbolt, the official drink. Jonas Villanueva topscored for FEU with 21points, even as two other Tamaraws, Benedict Fernandez and Mac Baracael also finished in double digits with 17 and 10 points, respectively. Anthony Espiritu had 15 points, Jojo Duncil added 13 and Chester Taylor chipped in 12 for the Growling Tigers, who trailed by 11 at the half. The Tamaraws, who remained on top of the leaderboard with a 5-2 (won-lost) card, actually led from the start and never relinquished their grip of the lead up until the final buzzer.

The Red Lions were just as relentless. Getting major production from four of its starters, San Beda raced to a ten point-lead against the hapless EAC Generrals after the first quarter, 20-10, and never let up. The lead even
ballooned to a 53-37 spread after the Lions took the half, 37-26.

Lanky center Samuel Ekwe and guard John Paul Escobal finished with 14 points apiece for the Lions, while Riego Gamalinda and Micah Evangelista chipped in ten apiece in a balanced offensive show that constantly kept EAC at bay.
Gester Ebuen led EAC with 12 points, and Jaime Manansala added 11.

In other results, Ateneo de Manila made it a twinkill after both its men's and women's teams outclassed their counterparts from College of St. Benilde's. The Ateneo Blue Eagles nipped CSB, 79-61, in a tightly-fought contest, while the Lady Eagles were simply too much against the Lady Blazers in scoring a lopsided 69-46 win. Ateneo improved to 3-2 in the men's standings and 4-1 in the women's side.

Far Eastern requested the HAIL organizers to "advance" their games in order for them to compete in the on-going National Inter-Collegiate Championships at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum. They are now done with all their elimination round assignments and just waiting for the other teams to do so. At 5-3, Far Eastern stands a good chance to crack the Final Four.

Just a question though.. I thought the home and away invitational league has this rule prohibiting teams from fielding in players with one or more PBL conference experience. In UST's case, I'm sure Jemal Vizcarra has played in 1 or more PBL conference. Likewise some of their players who have played for Sunkist-UST before. - rektikano of archerpride.com

Editor's Note: Published on page A23 of the Feb. 23, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer


PLAYING before a boisterous home crowd, Lyceum University stunned University of Santo Tomas, 85-81, for its first-ever win after five tries in the menís basketball competition in the Home and Away Invitational League recently

Mark Ernest Fampulme, Fil-Am Rum Perry Scott and Arnel Calimag combined for 49 points and Dennis Lloyd Marcos added eight for the Pirates, who trailed, 30-41, at the half.

Lyceum outscored UST in the third frame, 25-20, and in the fourth, 30-20, to secure the win.

Fampulme finished with 18 points, Calimag added 17 and Scott chipped in 14 to cushion another huge game by Jojo Duncil, who scored a game-high 32 points for the Growling Tigers. Jemal Vizcarra added 10.

The Lady Pirates, however, bowed to the UST Lady Growling Tigers, 67-56.

Three days after the loss to Lyceum, UST bounced back with a 70-62 win over De La Salle University.

UST completed its domination of La Salle, as its womenís squad also prevailed against the Lady Archers, 66-54.

Rita Ann Vargas scored 17 points and Mary Elaine Orillano added 12 for UST.

I have a feeling it's going to be Beda this time. Gigil na gigil na sila. Problem is, Ronnie Bughao is also playing in our HAIL team.

^^ Pwede. Pero sana hindi. :D The gigil may be more of a disadvantage. Best for Beda to just relax and execute their plays without paying too much attention to their recent history with the Blue Eagles.

Medyo iba din ang match-ups dito eh. The HAIL team is composed of UAAP players (Aguilar, Laterre, Reyes, Barracoso, Tiu, Quimson, Nazareno) together with some Glory Be boys (Bughao, Escueta, Dizon, Medina, Baldos, Estoesta, Nkemakolam and Mark Intal). Coach Sandy is handling this team.

Agree. I think San Beda has not done well against Ateneo partly because the gigil caused the Red Lions to lose focus on the game, become frustrated when they realize that things aren't going the way they hoped, and then start messing up as they scramble to keep their act together. At least that's the way I see it.

Hi, allblue! I'm here! ;D

Pasintabi sa mga kaibigang Bedista. Hindi kaya itong si Koy ay medyo nahawa sa sakit nung Sandy Arespacochaga nung hawak ni Sandy ang Ateneo? Aminin na natin na ang mga player GENERALLY hindi naman ganun kadunong, kulang baga sa smarts. Kaya nga binawi ni Lord sa galing nilang maglaro. Itong punto: hindi kaya masyadong complicated ang sistema ni Koy para sa team niya? Parang si Sandy dati, ginagawang quantum physics ang basketball, ayun, nagkakandaleche-leche tuloy ang laro. Dapat siguro simplehan ni Koy ang diskarte. Tignan na lang natin ang inaasahan niyang mga player, sina Escobal at Ekwe, dalawang bagito. Kahit gaanong kagaling ang dalawang 'yan bagito pa din sila, halata sa frustration nila kapag pumapalpak ang isang play, o naiiwan sila, or basta may sabit sa team.

Talented ang Beda, at malalaki across the board, pero masyado yatang kumplikado ang mga gustong mangyari ni Koy. Halata mo 'yan lalo sa depensa, tuwing may nawawala sa switch or merong hindi naka-recover. Si Koy kasi galit na galit kapag naka-score sa loob ang kalaban. E kung parati na lang nawawala sa switch and recovery ang player papano na? Sa opensa naman tila yata masyadong komplikado ang gusto ni Koy sa halfcourt, hindi flexible ang two-man game nila Ekwe at Escobal. Kapag na-jam na o nabasa na 'yon, gaya nung ginawa ni Baldos, yari na, napipilitang maging last option ang iba nilang kakampi. Dapat maghanap ng mas simpleng mga play si Koy. May talent siya, dpat simplehan na lang niyang basketball.

Magandang obserbasyon.

Kaya lang sa dami nang ipinanalo ni Coach Koy at koronang nakamit, para sa akin tama ang kanyang ginagawang plays ayon sa kanyang oberbasyon sa kakayanan ng kanyang koponan. Ika nga nila "he is in the best position to call the shots". Expertise niya iyon.

Ukol kay Sam, dapat nating tandaan na "soccer" ang kanyang nilalaro sa Nigeria at halos walang basics sa basketball. Walang panahon ang coaching staff na gugugulin para turuan muna siya ng basics bago matuto makabasa ng komplikadong plays sa basketball. Kaya pinagsasabay ang dalawa. Pero sa pinakikita ni Sam, napakalaki ng kanyang "improvement" sa loob lamang ng ilang buwan.

Kay Pong naman, ang pinanggalingan niyang iskuwelahan ay hindi naman sumasali ng regular sa isang "competitive" na liga katulad ng UAAP at NCAA. Kaya malaking adjustment para sa kanya dahil mas komplikado ang mga plays na itinuturo sa kanya at advance kesa sa natutunan niya sa Holy Angel. Ngunit matalino si Pong at may kompiyansa akong madali niyang matutunan ang mga ito.

chba_dude
02-27-2006, 12:27 AM
Holy Cross po galing si Pong.

May katotohanan ang mga obserbasyon ni Wang-Bu. Komplikado talaga ang sistema ni Koy. Ngunit ninanais niya na matuto mag-isip ang kanyang mga manlalaro. Ayaw niya ng manlalaro na mahina ang basketball IQ. Bagamat sa ibang manlalaro ay natural ito, maaari naman itong mahasa para sa ibang hindi mapalad na nabiyayaan nito.

Tungkol sa mga bagito, pantay-pantay lang naman lahat ng manlalaro ng San Beda. Si Koy ay pumasok sa koponan noon lamang 2nd round last year. Hindi niya pa naman ipinagamit ang kanyang sistema nung panahon na iyon dahil maguguluhan lang ang mga manlalaro niya sa gitna ng NCAA mismo. Kaya sabay-sabay lang naman nila ito natutunan ngayon.

Hindi naman ganoon kalaking isyu ang sistema. Eto din naman ang ginamit para makapasok sa laro para sa kampeonato ng FMC3 at para kasalukuyang manatili sa itaas ng hanayan ng HAIL.

Maaaring "kontrapelo" nga ang dahilan. Ngunit mas malamang para sa akin ang paglabas ng agwat sa eksperiensya ng mga kapwa manlalaro na galing ng Ateneo. Makikita naman natin kung sino ang apat na gumawa ng mas malaking bahagi ng puntos ng Ateneo: JC Intal, Doug Kramer, Macky Escalona at Ronnie Bughao. Sa kaalaman ng lahat sina Intal, Kramer at Escalona ay mga beterano ng UAAP na naglalaro pa ng maraming minuto. Nakapaglaro pa sa mga Final Four at para sa kampeonato. "Big game experience" ika nga. Isipin mo naman ang mga laro kalaban ang DLSU sa harap ng puunung-puno na Big Dome. Hindi ito natuturo at nabibili. Eto namang si Ronnie ay nakapaglaro na sa NCAA. Rookie of the Year. Kasama pa sa Final Four team na isang tira lamang ay naglaro na rin para sa kampeonato.

Ang mga beterano naman ng San Beda na nakapaglaro na sa NCAA ay sina Menor, Gamalinda, Tecson, Taganas, Tirona,* Maggay at Antonio. Sina Menor, Gamalinda, Tecson, Taganas at Tirona ay kapwa unang taon pa lamang nung nakaraan, habang sina Maggay at Antonio ay hindi unang beses naisama sa koponan ngunit parehong naglalaro ng maliit na bilang ng minuto sa mga nilaruan nila.

Eto naman ay hindi ginagamit na palusot. Talagang Ateneo ang nanalo nung Huwebes sa FMC3. Mahusay talaga.

Sana lang ay makabawi na kami dito sa HAIL.

Sa aking personal na opinyon, kami naman ngayon.* ;D

I am not sure whether to post this on the Lion's Den or the Eagles Nest so, bahala na kayo mga mods.

One interesting point for consideration really is what are the lessons learned by either team from these admittedly developmental tournaments. What are the things that they have to improve on or reinforce?

(1.) Sam Ekwe has improved by leaps and bounds in his short stint (five months?) with the cubs. Is this because he is a natural athlete? Is it his discipline? Is there somebody in the Beda Bench who is an unheralded "teacher of the game"? What has been done right that can be applied to other players?

(2.) Ateneo has been employing some kind of press during critical times of the game. Can they do this whole game long like the way La Salle used to do?

(3.) It seems that Burtscher and Tecson were put on Bughao for the first half but they got into foul trouble so Bughao errupted in the second half. Is there an area for improvement on the individual defensive skills of some Beda players?

(4.) Ateneo seems to be relying on end-game poise or experience of its more senior players for the win. Would this be enough considering that other teams will eventually catch up? If Ateneo were really the better team, why could it not easily put San Beda away? Does Ateneo lack a killer instinct?

(5.) How was Escobal checked? What can he learn from this? How about Ronnie Bughao?

(6.) Is it really the physical game that works or is the physical game really just an aspect of the mental toughness game?

(7.) Jobe was blocked by Ekwe. Does Jobe realize that he is not 6'7" and that, pretty soon, opposing players will figure out his tendencies and would know how to stop him? Can Jobe re-invent himself? Who else needs to reinvent himself to be effective for the roles they have to play for their team?

We have Freddie Abuda.

Of course Sam is a great athlete and very coachable. But ever since coach Freddie joined the team as a volunteer assistant coach, the game of Sam improved alot. Same thing goes for Raymond Maggay - he's now making a strong case to be included again in next year's NCAA team.

The game was played on the coaching level. Individual talents of the players also shone but was negated by the swift adjustments made by the coaches. Escobal was clamped down by the defense as they know his tendencies same with Menor. What the coaches can not control is the breaks of the game which got intot he minds of the players. What we noticed while watching the game was the angles of the play with respect to the referees blowing the game. You can say that the ref called it when he sees it. There were times when the benches and the crowd would not agree. But at least the bad calls evened itself between the teams.

Hats off to Freddie Abuda for improving the inside game of the big men of San Beda. Hats off to ADMU coaching staff for noticing the propensity of San Beda to use big men and counter with the ninja turtles whose sticky or in your face defense caught San Beda by surprise. Taganas, Gamalinda and Ekwe did not know what hit them when the ninjas was stealing the ball right under their feet and scoring in front of them.

This was the first game of Chris Tiu. He still has the smarts and the moves and the hot hand that we saw before he left for France. Gameface, the first throw down of Japeth is better than the second one because the whole board went down with him for a second. By the way both dunks posterized Sam Ekwe of lob feeds by the guards. It could have been three if not for a deliberate foul of Tecson which was not called by the refs. Oh make it four on the base line drive if Saguitan also did not foul Japeth. If that went in, it would have been the best dunk of the game.

May we give an unsolicited advice to the coaching staff of San Beda. Bring the maturity level of Escobal higher and make him look for his teammates rather than doing it one on one when Bughao is a better player than him. Once he develops his mental toughness and gives more passes to his cutting teammates, your team will also go very far. Menor needs to develop the left side of his game. Lastly, make your students study harder so that their basketball IQ will also go up.

My two cents worth.

02-28-2006, 09:14 AM
cackler, interesting questions.* I think both teams have learned a lot these past few games.* some insights:

- I personally do not see our coaching staff falling in love with the press too much that they will use it in the same way DLSU did.* They'll probably employ it only for brief stretches in the game to force turnovers.* Compared to last summer, it is much better and the players seem to be more comfortable running it.* Pero hindi talaga yata yun ang style natin.*

- Yesterday, Ateneo relied on the timely shots of Jai Reyes and comebacking Chris Tiu.* Not really that experienced, having only 3 years total UAAP college experience between them.* Both of them were willing to take the big shots but were also not pushing it when the defense had set up already.* It was great to see Chris still playing smart ball and even fighting it out to get key offensive rebounds for the team.*

- More than endgame poise or experience, I think it's Ateneo's defense that has helped them win games during the off-season.* Today, players like Dizon, Medina, Escueta, Quimson and Nazareno may not have scored a lot but if you saw the game, you would remember them for their hustle.* Never mind if they get blocked or their man scores on them, they go back and try even harder.* They get in the face of their opponent through their pesky defense.* Desire.*

- Just an observation and I hope our Bedan friends don't take this the wrong way but I think there is also an issue of leadership for Beda. MAybe it would help if there is someone the other players can turn to and who can keep everyone in check.* I just noticed from the past 3 games that when someone makes an error in the team (specially in the endgame), there is a slight tendency to point fingers at each other and to argue on the court.* When LA was still with Ateneo, you also see him yelling at his teammates a LOT.* Yun nga lang, walang sumasagot sa kanya.* Nakikinig lang.* Siguro as the Red Lions become more familiar with each other, their roles in the team will also be clearer.*

MargaretThrasher
02-28-2006, 09:43 AM
I've heard someone make a similar observation on the present lack of leadership in the San Beda team. In fairness, I've seen Escobal and Ekwe try to step up in this respect, but the other guys don't seem to be responding to them yet. Maybe it's the newness factor, I don't know. ???

At any rate, perhaps this is another thing that will be addressed when the players become more familiar with each other and their roles within the team are cemented.

cackler
02-28-2006, 11:27 AM
Prof.:

I assure you San Beda keeps its athletes studying. They have painfully let go of big men because of academics.

Guys:

Leadership . . . Time will tell. That is largely up to the Coaching Staff. It will be a very delicate balance. Adamson had an interesting formula. House them all together, make them sport tattoos and move as a gang. The Coach calls them "pare" and for a while, it worked.

Ateneo also had some form of pecking order then. Senior players really balled out freshman players. It also worked for a time.

The key seems to be in developing a competitve culture where roles are clearly defined. The kind of culture to be adopted, in turn, seems to be dependent largely on the Coach. Some time back, UST built a dynasty with militaristic and "putang ina niyong lahatistic" discipline around a Coach whose diatribes were legendary not only for the cuss but for the spit left on the white board used to diagram plays. "Ponga ngala" and "combat rebounding" also found its way into jargon lore anchored on the nosy and strong personality of Lipa.

La Salle too had a "tough boy you can't get past me" culture and brotherhood that saw a brother player take one on the face at Mc Do for his team mate. Letran is notorious for its slogans like "Play hard" printed on the back of the shirts of the players. Of course, if you look at their faces, you realize they also Look Hard.

But that is another matter as basketball is not a beauty contest or a laboratory for cosmetic surgery.

San Beda is rebuilding. The tradition, school spirit and pride are all there, the alumni and fans are starting to troop to the games and a competitive coaching staff is in place. Sam Beda also has the materials to work with from its wings to back court to front court. But this really takes time and I am sure our more mature Bedan friends will be there with the proper perspective. We just pray they continue on the right track as they hunger for the crown just as we waited and almost tore each other apart for fourteen agonizing years.

Good luck on your Quest San Beda and here's hoping the Red Army keeps marching.

Interesting views cackler. I liked the way you wrote it. It much like reminded me of 2004 championship won by PCU. The real tough boy of college ball, Coach Tolentino of University of Manila. In his years handling the UM team, he has brought them to great heights.

Imagine, sans the UAAP and NCAA experience of his team, it surprises me until now how he has managed to be competitive by winning those National Inter-collegiate championships back then. Those tournaments were joined by other NC and UA teams and yet his UM team manages to pull off wins after wins.

Although leading by "Pag di mo na-shoot iyan susuntukin kita" or "Pag naka-shoot iyan, sunugin ko bahay niyo" attitude. He tends to be respected by his players (or so I think). Well, as they say, different approach, same result. People like him, Coach Joe, or even Bobby Knight still has a place in the basketball world.

However, tough love/karinyo brutal, has its limits as this certain coach with ascerbic toungue and a well-like source of spit found out in the latter stages of his varsity level coaching career. His more senior players soon tuned him out while the younger ones developed thick hides. It didn't help that some of his players had thicker craniums thereby blunting whatever invectives thrown their way.

1. That's right, Freddie Abuda has been the Teacher of Sam. I was told that Freddie has been very patient with him in teaching him the tricks of the trade. No doubt, Ekwe is improving in every game.

2. The press was deliberately employed by Sandy only in the 3rd Q. This caught the Red Lions by surprise. With the composition of the team, with Yuri, Meds, Pao, Ronnie, Chris, and Jai in rotation, I think they are ready to press 24 x 7 against any opponent. Of course, employing them all of a sudden in the 3rd Q was the surprise. In short, hindi nabasa at hindi agad nakapag adjust ang Lions sa strategy ni Sandy.

3. Burtscher and Tecson are good perimeter defenders. Perhaps, they could guard the opponents' wingmen who stand at least 6'2". Bughao is 5'9" or 5'10" and a lot quicker. Mauubos talaga sila kay Ronnie. Their 3s should only be matched up defensively with a tall guard or small forward. In the 2nd half, naubusan na rin ng bala si Tecson. Sayang, pumutok pa naman siya ng 1st Q.

4. I think this is primarily because Ateneo didn't have a consistent go to guy except for Ronnie and if you noticed, ronnie only was able to errupt in the 2nd half. Much of their points in the 1st half came from Japeth and some from Jai and Chris. I always felt that the HAIL team is a better defensive team than our FMC team. Our FMC team had enough firepower and go to guys in Ronnie, JC, and Macky. The killer instinct to score is more present in our FMC team.

5. Escobal was checked by our pesky guards who came prepared to employ a physical body up defense on him. Ronnie, Chris, Emman, and Pao took turns to tire him down. Wala siyang clear shot all throughout the game. Ronnie was checked in the 1st half by putting much taller and agile defenders on him. Naubos nga lang sa fouls.

6.* I think it is more of the second one. The ateneo players are mentally tougher. It should go with the experience and the tougher battles the team went through in the past.

7. Jobe was blocked underneath because he leaped in a straight vertical manner to bank the shot. He should learn to use his body to protect his arms and the ball so that he can always bait for the fooul specially from a taller defender. He should continue to develop his upper body strength for this.

Ang kulang ni Jobe diskarte. Masyado kasi siyang malakas at mataas tumalon kahit medyo bumigat siya. Wala siyang incentive na mag-develop ng ibang galaw. Once pumoste na siya at nakuha niyang bola, ilang dribble lang, isang drop step or pivot, todo talon or kalabawin ang bantay, score na siya. Kung nasusupalpal man siya dapat kasinlaki ni Ekwe. Tancha ko lang kung mga tipong 6'5" na poste lang ang katapat niya either sure 2 or foul na 'yon. Madalas nangyari ito nitong huling FMC. Sa lakas niya talagang nagmumukhang Grade 1 ang mga bantay niya. Imagine kung maka-develop ng counter move si Jobe like a jumphook, o kaya magkaroon ng footwork ni Mike Baldos. Diyosme, para ka ng nagkaroon ng Alvin Patrimonio Part 2.

SBC won against Lyceum @ Lyceum. 89-79.

The game was close until the 3rd quarter. The Red Lions took advantage in the 4th quarter with accurate free throw shooting, hitting 20 of 23 in the quarter to finally break the spirit of the game Lyceum squad.

It should also be noted that there was a minor ruckus after the game between a Lyceum table official and SBC assistant coach Chito Victolero. The said table official even ordered the guards to close the gates and threatened that the entire Beda delegation will not be allowed to leave the court. Eventually, the team forced themselves out of the gate.

It could have escalated to a bigger thing. Good thing the Lyceum players left the physical play inside the court and served as mediators during the ruckus.

I think the organizers should look into this matter. For the safety and security of all persons involved, in any venue.

Anyway, Escobal led four players in double figures with 19, Menor 17, Gamalinda 13 and a surprise producer off the bench, Antonio with 10 markers. Lyceum was led by the ever-durable/effective Fampulme with 23 and Scott with 18..

Ateneo shades San Beda, 72-70
HAIL Press Release, Mar. 1, 2006


ATENEO de Manila leaned heavily on starters Ronnie Bughao, Chris Tiu and Jai Reyes to subdue San Beda College, 72-70, and grab solo second spot in the men's basketball competition in the Home and Away Invitational League.

Up against a vastly-improving squad and a hostile crowd, the Blue Eagles played steadily from start to finish, scoring the key baskets down the stretch to escape with their fifth win in seven starts, as the tournament supported by Adidas, the official outfitter, and Sunbolt, the official sports drink, nears its final week.

Ateneo actually trailed, 29-35, at the half, but cat-quick small men Bughao and Reyes brought back the Eagles back into the fight with their outside snipings. Bughao finished with 15 points to lead the Eagles, while Reyes and Tiu had 14 apiece. Riego Gamalinda led San Beda with 14, Ogie Menor had 11 and lanky Samuel Ekwe chipped in ten, but the Red Lions failed to stop the Eagles` determined offensive in the fourth quarter, where Ateneo outscored the
Mendiola-based dribblers, 24-19.

The Red Lions dropped to 4-2. Meanwhile, the semifinal round of the men's and women's basketball of HAIL, the only existing home-and-away collegiate league organized by Waffle Marketing Inc., has been moved to March 9, while the finals for both divisions will be held on March 11.

So, it's now San Beda and UE tie for the top spot at 5-2 W-L.
Followed by FEU at 5-3.
Ateneo and UST are both 4-3.
DLSU is 3-4, after losing to Benilde and is out of contention.

San Beda's last HAIL match is this DLSU game at 2:30pm/ March 3.

If San Beda wins this game vs DLSU, they would be at 6-2 and puts them in first place until after the Saturday/March 4 games. With only UE having the chance to tie them for the top spot.

Pero kung matalo ang Red Lions, ang daming complications dahil either Ateneo or UST can catch up with 5-3. (Eagles and Tigers tangle tom at Moro. An outright knock-out game.)

With ties seemingly inevitable, and teams wanting to have that HOME COURT ADVANTAGE the QUESTION now is -

Paano ba tie-break dito sa HAIL ?

UST was playing fluidly in the first half. They were moving well, defending properly, and continuously attacking Ateneo's defense. The Eagles started out flat, always looking like they were a step behind and behaving like a 20 point deficit was no cause for spirited play. That this was all happening in the Eagles' home of Moro Lorenzo Sports Center made it so much worse. It was too reminiscent of the second round meeting with UST where they scorched us with their torrid outside shooting in the BEG.

The Blue Eagles looked like a different team in the second half. Martin Quimson was playing well, even knocking down all but one of his free throws in the final quarter. Chris Tiu finally hit his stride and nailed a few perimeter shots of his own. Jobe became more assertive in the paint. Ronnie Bughao dished out several amazing passes, some of which I have no idea how he got done. Yuri defended like a demon, announcing his entry into the game with a steal. Meds hit a crucial three to end an Ateneo scoring drought. And Jai "Jainamite" Reyes brought out the full arsenal.

It was an all-around excellent game for Jai, probably the best ever I've seen him play in college. It's already a given that Jai can scorch you with his shooting. In the Beda game, he scored 16 and in the UE game, he scored 27. Today, he scored 7 points in the 1st half, 11 points in the 2nd half, and 13 points in overtime to end the game with 31. He ws hitting threes, throwing floaters, driving for lay-ups. Somebody call the fireman! :D But it is good to note that he also carried the ball well for the team, and even drew 3 offensive fouls through his defensive efforts. :)

Ateneo scored 28 points in the first half and 69 points in the 2nd half and overtime. I hope they find a way to be more consistent. Clearly, the team has the offensive and defensive personnel to notch up victories but I hope they do not rely on their ability to come back from deficits as an excuse to slack off in the beginning. It will surely catch up with them.

Just a few words on the new UST coach. When he was called for a technical foul for excessive complaining, he managed to vent his ire on the Ateneo gallery by flashing them the finger. True, the Ateneo fans were heckling him and his players to try and get into their heads but that is all part of the game. Nasa homecourt pa siya ng Ateneo. It didn't seem too obvious the first time he did but he just had to do it again. Bad behavior confirmed. Tsk. Tsk. ::)

Editor's Note: Published on page A18 of the March 11, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer


SAN BEDA College and University of the East clash today for the men's championship in the Home and Away Invitational League (Hail) at the UE gym.

The Red Lions earned a trip to the finals by pulling off a come-from-behind 78-72 win over reigning University Athletics Association of the Philippines champion Far Eastern University at home while the UE Warriors gave Ateneo de Manila a rude reception at the UE gym with a lopsided 81-58 victory in the two knockout semifinal matches Thursday.

The Warriors, a perennial contender in the UAAP, will host the Red Lions of the NCAA in the titular clash starting at 4:30 p.m. today in the only home-and-away tournament organized by Waffle Marketing Inc. and sponsored by Adidas, the official outfitter, and Sunbolt, the official sports drink.

From a 42-62 deficit in the third quarter, the Red Lions engineered a furious comeback in the final period, with Nigerian Samuel Ekwe scoring a vicious slam that finally put San Beda ahead, 72-70, with barely two minutes left. From there, it was an all-Lions show as the Tamaraws, who were outscored, 10-23, in the last quarter.

Today's program will start with a 3-point shootout and a slam dunk contest at 2 p.m.

Over at the FEU Gym, the Lady Tamaraws battle the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses for the women's crown at 2 p.m.

The awarding ceremonies for the winners in the 3-point shootout, slam dunk, the women's championship and the women's MVP will be held during the halftime of the UE-San Beda game, while the awarding rites for the winners in the men's basketball and the MVP Award will be given out after the championship match.

The Philippine Star 03/11/2006



San Beda College and University of the East, two teams from the two major collegiate leagues in the country, clash for the championship in the mení s basketball competition in the Home and Away Invitational League.

The SBC Red Lions earned a trip to the finals by fashioning out a come-from-behind 78-72 win over reigning UAAP champion Far Eastern University in the semifinal round before their ecstatic home crowd at the San Beda gym Thursday.

The UE Warriors, on the other hand, gave Ateneo de Manila a rude welcome at the UE gym, scoring a lopsided 81-58 victory in the other pair of the knockout semis in the only home-and-away tournament organized by Waffle Marketing Inc. and sponsored by adidas, the official outfitter, and Sunbold, the official sports drink.

The Warriors, a perennial contender in the UAAP, will host the Red Lions of the NCAA in the titular clash starting at 4:30 p.m. today.

From a 42-62 deficit in the third quarter, the Red Lions fought back in the final period, with Nigerian Samuel Ekwe scoring on a slam that shoved them on top, 72-70, with barely two minutes left. From there, it was an all-Lions show as the Tamaraws, who were outscored 10-23 in the last quarter, cracked up in the face of San Bedaís determined stand and a huge pro-Red Lions crowd.

Riego Gamalinda scored 22 points and Ekwe added 16 for the Red Lions, who trailed 37-50, at the half.

JR dela Cruz topscored for FEU with 12 while RB Mangahas had 11.

The Warriors, on the other hand, had a surprisingly easier time against the Blue Eagles.

Racing to a 20-10 lead in the early going, the Recto-based cagers didnít give Ateneo any room for a comeback as they padded their lead to 46-30 at the end of the first half.

They padded that to 72-41 on two free throws by Lawrence Briones with still 6:17 left in the game.

The Eagles tried to fight back, but Val AcuŮa buried a triple that practically wrapped up the match for UE.

Toto Bandaying and Marcelino Arellano scored 10 points each to lead UE, while four playersĖJames Martinez, Briones, Elmer Espiritu and Bonbon CustodioĖadded eight points apiece.

Jopeth Aguilar led Ateneo with 13 points and Ken Barracoso added seven.

Todayís program will start with a three-point shootout and a slamdunk competition among players from the nine competing teams in HAIL at 2 p.m.

Over at the FEU Gym, the Lady Tamaraws battle the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses for the womení s crown at 2 p.m.

The awarding ceremonies for the winners in the 3-point shootout and slamdunk, the womenís championship and the MVP in womenís basketball will be held during the halftime of the UE-San Beda game, while the awarding rites for the winners in the menís basketball and the MVP Award will be given out after the menís senior game at 6 p.m.

UNIVERSITY OF the East and San Beda, two teams with rich winning tradition, clash for the championship today in the menís basketball competition in the Home and Away Invitational League at the UE gym.


The SBC Red Lions earned a trip to the finals by scoring a 78-72 come-from-behind win over reigning UAAP champion Far Eastern University at the SBC gym, while the UE Warriors trampled Ateneo de Manila, 81-58, at the UE gym. Both games were held last Thursday.

The Warriors, who are out to end their long title drought in the UAAP this year, and Red Lions clash at 4:30 p.m.

Almost written off after falling behind by 20 points, 42-62, in the third quarter, the Red Lions, starring Nigerian Samuel Ekwe, came through with an avalanche of baskets to grab the lead 72-70.

It was an all-Lions show the rest of the way as the Tamaraws fell into a maze of errors. They were outscored, 10-23, in the last quarter.

Riego Gamalinda scored 22 points and Ekwe added 16 for the Red Lions, who trailed 37-50, at the half. JR dela Cruz top-scored for FEU with 12 while RB Mangahas had 11.

The Warriors, on the other hand, had a surprisingly easier time against the Blue Eagles.

UNIVERSITY of the East sent a strong message to the rest of the pack in the UAAP with a 93-76 rout of San Beda College Sunday to win the men's basketball championship of the second Home and Away Invitational League (HAIL) at the UE gym.

The Warriors, who lost their first two games in the only home-and-away collegiate basketball league in the country, humbled the Red Lions, who were in the fight only in the first two quarters.

The Recto-based champs surged on top, 59-45, after the third quarter and the crowd celebrated with still a full quarter to go.

Coach Dindo Pumaren said winning the crown was a bonus to "lessons learned" during the run-up to the finals of the league organized by Waffle Marketing Inc. and sponsored by Adidas, the official sportswear, and Sunbolt, the official sports drink.

"In every game here, we treat it as a practice for the UAAP," said Pumaren. "We lost our first two games, but those losses taught us things and we tried to improve in our succeeding games."

Bonbon Custodio, named the league's Most Valuable Player, carried the brunt of the scoring for UE as he finished with 26 points. Mark Borboran added 15, Elmer Espiritu had 13 and James Martinez, a former San Beda junior player, chipped in 11.

But the Warriors also laid down a tight defensive net that saw key San Beda players struggle in scoring.

San Beda's top gun Riego Gamalinda was limited to eight points while Ogie Menor wound up with only five markers.

Nigerian Samuel Ekwe scored 26 to lead the Red Lions, but most of them came late in the second half when the Warriors had already settled the issue.

JP Escobal added 18 but he, too, struggled against the tireless defense of the Warriors, who led by as many as 21, 82-61.

Meanwhile, Far Eastern University, led by MVP Kathrina Nido, downed University of Santo Tomas, 73-65, to bag the women's crown.

Ateneo de Manila University, which lost to UE in their knockout semifinal match, won the 3-point shootout through Jai Reyes and the slam dunk competition through Japeth Aguilar.

HAIL president Mark Molina and Waffle officials Auty Villarama and Rely Agustin presented the trophies to the winners.

The scores:
UE 93 -- Custodio 26, Borboran 15, Espiritu 13, Martinez 11, Arellano 9, Lingganoy 5, Bondaying 5, Petrone 4, Gregorio 4, Labagala 1, Briones 0, Nabo 0, Acuna 0.
SBC 76 -- Ekwe 21, Escobal 18, Tecson 9, Gamalinda 8, Evangelista 8, Menor 5, Maggay 2, Tirona 1, Suguitan 0, Taganas 0.
Quarters: 25-18, 36-34, 59-45, 93-76

CAN THE University of the East Warriors end their long title drought?


With the way they are trampling their rivals, the Warriors appear confident and ready to recapture their once lofty standing in the UAAP.

For starter, the Warriors, who produced the likes of Robert Jaworski, Allan Caidic, Jerry CodiŮera and James Yap, ruled the 2nd Home and Away Invitational League Sunday by drubbing San Beda College, 93-76, at the UE Gym.

The Warriors, who lost their first two games in the only existing collegiate home-and-away basketball league, completed their domination of the event by outgunning the Red Lions in the final two quarters.

Custodio, who was later named the Most Valuable Player of the league, led the Warriors with 26 points, in a performance he highlighted with several spectacular plays. Borboran added 15 while Espiritu had 13 and James Martinez, a former San Beda junior player, chipped in 11.

San Bedaís top gun Riego Gamalinda was limited to eight points and Ogie Menor only had five to show. Nigerian Samuel Ekwe scored 26 to lead the Red Lions.

Meanwhile, Far Eastern University downed University of Sto. Tomas, 73-65, to bag the womenís crown. Later, Kathrina Nido of FEU was voted MVP.

In the two side events before the championship match, Ateneo de Manila, which lost in the knockout semis against UE, took twin honors in the 3-point shootout and in the slamdunk competition.

Ateneo guard Jai Reyes topped the 3-point shootout with a total of 14 points, while beanpole Japeth Aguilar scored a pair of perfect 30s to rule the slamdunk contest. óEddie ALINEA

UE dumps San Beda, 93-76, claims HAIL crown
HAIL Press Release



THE Warriors are ready for the UAAP.

University of the East sent a strong message to the
rest of the pack in the UAAP with a 93-76 rout of San
Beda College in the finals of the men's basketball in
the 2nd Home and Away Invitational League on Sunday at
the UE Gym.

The Warriors, who lost their first two games in the
only existing collegiate home-and-away basketball
league, completed the win - and the championship --
before a packed home crowd, outgunning an overmatched
Red Lions squad which was only in the thick of the
fight in the first two quarters.

It was the Warriors' show the rest of the way, as the
crowd began celebrating with still a full quarter to
go and UE on top, 59-45.

Later, UE coach Dindo Pumaren said winning the
championship was a bonus to "lessons learned" during
the run-up to the finals of the league organized by
Waffle Marketing Inc. and sponsored by Adidas, the
official sportswear, and Sunbolt, the official sports
drink.

"In every game here, we treat them as a practice for
the UAAP. We lost our first two games, but those
losses taught us some things and we tried to improve
in our succeeding games," Pumaren said.

Bonbon Custodio, named the Most Valuable Player of
the league, carried the brunt of the scoring for UE,
as he finished with 26 points, highlighting his
performance with several spectacular plays. Mark
Borboran added 15, while Elmer Espiritu had 13 and
James Martinez, a former San Beda junior player,
chipped in 11.

But the Warriors won not only because of their
offensive sock, but because of a tight defensive net
that had key San Beda players struggling in scoring.

San Beda's top gun Riego Gamalinda was limited to
eight points and Ogie Menor only had five to show.
Nigerian Samuel Ekwe scored 26 to lead the Red Lions,
but most of his points came late in the second half
when the Warriors had pulled away for good.

JP Escobal added 18, but he too struggled against the
tireless defense of the Warriors, who led by as many
as 21, 82-61 with only 3:01 to go in the third
quarter.

Meanwhile, Far Eastern University downed University
of Sto. Tomas, 73-65, to bag the women's crown.
Later, Kathrina Nido of FEU was voted MVP.

In the two side events before the championship match,
Ateneo de Manila, which lost in the knockout semis
against UE, took twin honors in the 3-point shootout
and in the slamdunk competition.

Ateneo guard Jai Reyes topped the 3-point shootout
with a total of 14 points, while beanpole Japeth
Aguilar scored a pair of perfect 30s to rule the
slamdunk contest.

HAIL president Mark Molina and Waffle officials Auty
Villarama and Rely San Agustin were on hand to present
the awards to the winners.


The scores:

UE ( 93) - Custodio 26, Borboran 15, Espiritu 13,
Martinez 11, Arellano 9, Lingganoy 5, Bondaying 5,
Petrone 4, Gregorio 4, Labagala 1, Briones 0, Nabo 0,
Acuna 0.

SBC (76) -- Ekwe 21, Escobal 18, Tecson 9, Gamalinda
8, Evangelista 8, Menor 5, Maggay 2, Tirona 1,
Suguitan 0, Taganas 0.

Quarterscores: 25-18, 36-34; 59-45, 93-76.

FEU is most likely the General Champions (if ever there's one award like that hehe) in this year's Home and Away Invitational League.

The Home and Away Invitational League officially ended a while ago in the Women's Volleyball Finals with DLSU defeating a powerhouse FEU squad. Both FEU Volleyball Team (Men's and Women's) was beaten by a La Salle connected squad, with CSB defeating them in Men's and as said earlier, DLSU beating them in Women's.

FEU ended this year's season with only the Men's Basketball not in the Championship and placing 3rd. Another commendable school this season is San Beda who placed 2nd in Men's Basketball and 3rd in Men's Volleyball. They didn't field in a team for both Women's Basketball and Volleyball.

I was browsing a while ago in Wikipedia and I found this Home and Away Invitational League page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_and_Away_League-Philippines
- It has the every game result and updates every game be it Men's or Women's yata. Try to check it out. :)
