THE 13th season of the NCRAA opened a month ago last January 13 (Friday) at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in Manila.* Let's post NCRAA game results, statistics, standings and schedules here!

Participating schools:

AMA Computer College-Makati
Arellano University
Asian College of Science and Technology-Manila
City College of Manila

National College of Business and Arts-Cubao
Olivarez College
PATTS School of Aeronatics
Philippine Maritime Institute Colleges
Philippine School of Business Administration-Quezon City

Saint Francis of Assisi College

Note: host and defending champion Emilio Aguinaldo College was banned in the middle of the tournament after the school violated NCRAA rules prohibiting its teams and players from seeing action in leagues during the course of the NCRAA season.* The case stems from the Generals entering and completing several games in the Second Home and Away Invitational League (HAIL) that began last January 21 (Saturday). The NCRAA schedule was revised accordingly.

Patriots firm up Final 4 bid in NCRAA

The Philippine Star 02/24/2006

The La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots came away with a crushing of the National College of Business and Arts Wildcats, 99-73, yesterday to stay in the chase for the last Final Four semifinal slot in the 13th National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the Arellano Legarda gym.

Robby Baguio delivered a game-high 21 points for the Patriots, who moved slightly ahead of the Philippine Maritime Institute Admirals with their seventh win in 10 games.

The Admirals, who tote a 6-3 card, remained the Patriots’s biggest rival for the last semis berth, since they wield a better winner-over-the-other record over La Salle-Dasmariñas.

"Habulan pa rin kami ng PMI hanggang bukas," said Patriots coach Ephraim Serrano as he watched PMI fight it out with PATTS School of Aeronautics in a late afternoon contest.

The Patriots are in for a tough battle against the St. Francis Doves at 1:30 p.m. while the Admirals clash with the Wildcats at 10:30 a.m. in two of the day’s crucial matches at the Arellano Legarda gym today.

The Doves now have the No. 1 slot in the Final Four semifinals after beating the Arellano University Flaming Arrows, 76-73, in overtime last week.

The Arrows, who are now running second, share the same slate with the Doves at 9-1 and will meet the Polytechnic University of the Philippines Maroons when the semis begin on Tuesday.

Francis Junatas hit 13 points for the Patriots, and scored 11 in the third as they took an 81-52 edge.

Leo Pelayo had 11 points and joined hands with Jake Patambang for a 16-7 run in the second period, giving the Patriots a 38-28 edge with 2:28 to go.

Nico Pupos made 30 points for the Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings, who whipped AMA Computer College, 137-72.

Doves thwart Arrows, near NCRAA title

The Philippine Star 03/08/2006



Multi-titled St. Francis of Assisi used its vast experience to frustrate first time finalist Arellano University, 74-61, in Game 1 of the 13th National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) best-of-three men’s basketball championship.

The Doves’ speed and energy level were just too much for the Flaming Arrows to handle in the fourth period, allowing the six-time titlists to secure the victory and move to within a win shy of securing their seventh NCRAA title.

St. Francis, which is playing in its 11th championship appearance in the league, shoots for the jugular at 1 p.m. today against Arellano U at the San Andres gym.

"They (Flaming Arrows) were really trying to slow us down with their pressure and trapping defense. Pero, attack lang kami nang attack," said Doves coach Gabby Velasco.

The Flaming Arrows came charging back from a nine-point halftime deficit, with Tylon Darjuan and Alfie Martinez leading a 13-0 run as Arellano U forced two deadlocks, the last at 48-all.

After Lee Boliver turned the ball over with a bad pass, the Doves unleashed a decisive 8-3 spurt in the third quarter, with Martin Ilagan clustering six points and handing St. Francis a 56-51 edge at the end of the period.

With 6-foot-2 big man Raffy Ynion helping out underneath, Michael Rabor and Leomer Losentes starred in the Doves’ biggest offensive run in the fourth as St. Francis took a huge 70-55 spread with only 3:13 remaining in the game.

Ilagan powered the Doves with 23 points while Fil-American wingman Chris Pacana delivered 11 points. Losentes had 10.

Darjuan shot 12 points for the Flaming Arrows, while Martinez contributed 11.

Meanwhile, Erwin Punzalan shot 21 points while Chris Sandoval banged in 14 points as St. Francis took third place in the junior side with a 94-63 stopping of Polytechnic University of the Philippines.

In the senior division’s battle for third, six-foot-six slotman Jeff Khalili hit seven of the game’s last 12 points in the last three minutes to lead Polytechnic University of the Philippines to an 83-73 win over La Salle-Dasmariñas.

Khalili unloaded 13 points, the same output of Gener Porio and Eljun Lapera.

Doves NCRAA champs
Leomer Losentes and Filipino American hotshot Chris Pacana found the right moment to shine Friday as their timely baskets carried Saint Francis of Assisi College to their seventh crown in the 13th National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball championships at the San Andres gym in Manila.

The Doves pulled off a 76-72 victory over Arellano University in Game 3 of their best-of-three title showdown with the help of Losentes, who scored 21 points, including two free throws with 42 seconds left that handed the Doves a 10-point edge late in the game.

Christopher Concepcion banged in 15 points, including a free throw with 26 ticks to go, assuring Saint Francis the four-point victory over the Flaming Arrows.

Pacana, a prized recruit from Los Angeles, chalked up 13 points and sank two freebies off Alfie Martinez’s foul, allowing the Doves to move safely ahead at 75-70.

"I‘m proud of the guys. They were determined to get back the trophy, to get back the championship they lost last year," said Doves coach Gabby Velasco.

The Doves won their sixth crown two years ago, but were not able to defend it when they missed the semifinals last season due to injuries to their key players.

They broke free from a 44-all deadlock after a drive and short jumper by Martin Ilagan. Losentes and Concepcion then strung up three treys, allowing the Doves to take a 61-53 spread at the end of the third period.

Michael Rabor’s jumper off Pacana’s pass with 5:57 left then saw the Doves zoom ahead by 10, 70-60.

Despite the big deficit, the Flaming Arrows refused to let the Doves have an easy time, coming to within three off a pair of triples from Orlando Daroya, before Pacana hit his two freebies to put the Doves to safer grounds anew at 75-70.

Daroya chipped in a game-high 22 points for the Flaming Arrows while Martinez sank 13.

"Experience-wise, they had the edge over us. It’s OK for us that we reached the championship on our second year. It’s a lesson for us to strive more next year," said Flaming Arrows coach Leo Isaac.

The scores:

SAINT FRANCIS 76—Losentes 21, Concepcion 15, Pacana 13, Arroyo 6, Ilagan 6, Leynes 6, Rabor 4, Castanarez 3, Paez 2.

ARELLANO 72—Daroya 22, Martinez 15, Boliver 10, D. Martinez 9, Ciriacruz 8, Darjuan 5, Magcawas 3.

Halftime:38-34.

Doves foil Arrows for 7th crown

The Philippine Star 03/11/2006

Leomer Losentes and Fil-American cager Chris Pacana found the right moment to shine yesterday at the San Andres gym as their timely baskets carried the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves to their seventh crown in the 13th National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball championships.

Losentes showed the way with 21 points, including two free throws with 42 seconds left to play which handed the Doves a 10-point edge en route to a 76-72 victory over the Arellano University Flaming Arrows in Game 3 of their best-of-three title showdown.

Christopher Concepcion banged in 15 points, including a free throw with 26 ticks to go in the rubber match, ensuring the Doves’ four-point victory over Flaming Arrows.

Pacana, a prized recruit from Los Angeles, California, chalked up 13 points and sank two charities off Alfie Martinez’s foul, allowing the Doves to move safely ahead at 75-70.

"I’m proud of the guys. They were determined to get back the trophy, to get back the championship they lost last year," said Doves coach Gabby Velasco.

The Doves won their sixth crown two years ago, but were not able to defend it when they missed the semifinals last season due to injuries to their key players.

Despite the big deficit, the Flaming Arrows refused to crack up and stalked the Doves, narrowing the gap to three points off a pair of triples from Orlando Daroya, 70-73 before Pacana hit his two free throws to put the Doves to safer grounds anew at 75-70.

Daroya chipped in a game-high 22 points for the Flaming Arrows while Martinez sank 13.

"Experience-wise, they were better but we’re fortunate to have gained the championship on our second year. Lesson sa amin ito to strive hard for the next NCRAA," said Flaming Arrows coach Leo Isaac.

Abundo: NCRAA not part of Pilipinas Basketball


By BONG PEDRALVEZ, The Manila Times Subeditor

The National Capital Region Athletic Association Tuesday belied claims that it had joined the ranks of the Pilipinas Basketball Inc., the group endorsed by the Philippine Olympic Committee to replace the Basketball Association of the Philippines.

"I have been authorized by NCRAA president Tisha Abundo to say that the NCRAA remains allied with the BAP. It continues to support to recognized association of the International Basketball Federation," BAP secretary-general Graham Lim said.

A report (not in The Manila Times) said that the NCRAA had joined a basketball summit initiated by Philippine Basketball Association Commissioner Noli Eala at Pearl Hotel in Manila on Saturday.

Acting as the summit spokesman, Eala said that Pilipinas Basketball Inc. would draft a resolution signed by the representatives of those present at the event, appealing to FIBA to lift the country’s suspension from international competition.

Eala claimed that a cross-section of all the parties involved in the sport were present at the summit.

But Lim, quoting Abundo, said that the NCRAA was not represented in the Saturday meeting, "which are all part of political maneuverings of those who have a personal agenda."

Lim added that Abundo, who is also the president of the Federation of School Sports Associations in the Philippines, was neither turning her back on the BAP nor its president Joey Lina.

"FESSAP is an organization consisting of 30 school leagues. Ms. Abundo said it will continue to support the Lina and the BAP’s programs. Both groups have stuck together through thick and thin," Lim said.

He pointed out that this is why the BAP and FESSAP have banded together to stage the National Battle of Champions in July, featuring the champions of various school leagues.

Sources said the summit on Saturday was the latest move by the POC to save face after an attempt to have Pilipinas Basketball, Inc. recognized by the basketball’s world governing failed during a meeting with FIBA secretary-general Patrick Baumann in South Korea in March.

The powerhouse RP delegation led by POC president Jose Cojuangco Jr., which included Eala, was unable to convince Baumann that the new group was the best solution to resolve the long running controversy.

The sources added that the POC’s lobbying may have been an exercise in futility because the FIBA Central Board had junked the memorandum of understanding it had with the POC in forming a new basketball federation.

In a separate interview, BAP deputy secretary-general Lito Alvarez said that FIBA was set to lift the country’s suspension while maintaining its recognition of the BAP.

The decision could be out by August when the FIBA Congress is held in Japan coinciding with the world basketball championships.
