Ex-PBA stars welcome in Homegrown Cup
Manila Bulletin On-line (Mar. 9, 2006)



FORMER PBA players will try to rekindle their glory days when they see action in the Total-Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup starting on March 18 at the San Juan Coliseum.


Among the big names who have already confirmed their participation in this unique tournament are Samboy Lim of San Miguel, coaches Yeng Guiao and Ronnie Magsanoc of the UP Fighting Maroons, Ateneo’s Steve Watson and Fritz Gaston, San Beda’s Frankie Lim, Boybits Victoria and Ralph Rivera, and FEU’s Glenn Capacio.

"This noble basketball tournament will not only give former PBA stars the chance to reminisce their hardcourt exploits but also help their alma mater raise funds," said league commissioner Virgil Villavicencio during yesterday’s press conference at the Kamayan Restaurant in Edsa.

Also present were organizing committee chairman David Dualand, Filoil-Flying V president Francisco Pasicolan and project head Anthony Suntay.

The Homegrown Cup, according to Villavicencio, is an expanded version of the Ateneo-La Salle showdown held last year.

And to heighten the interest of basketball fanatics, the organizers have decided to add San Beda, University of the Philippines, Far Eastern University and Letran College in the tournament.

Villavicencio is also entertaining the idea of inviting University of the East, Adamson and University of Santo Tomas.

"This year’s staging will be more exciting with the participation of high school teams," said Dualan. "Filoil-Flying V believes in developing the youth and included the high school division to showcase future stars."

Dualan also said that cash prizes of R80,000 (champion) and P40,000 (runnerup) will be awarded in the alumni and high school divisions.

The coaches in the All-Star division are Chito Narvasa (Ateneo), Danny Gavieres (FEU), Lim Eng Beng (La Salle), Itoy Esguerra (Letran), Chito Loyzaga (San Beda) and Raymund Celis (UP) while coaches in the high school team are Michael Ray Jarin (Ateneo), Sebastian De Vera (FEU), Mon Amador (La Salle), Elmer Latonio (Letran), Edmundo Badolato (San Beda) and Patrick Aquino (UP).

For UP, I do know that aside from Yeng Guiao, Bert Ortiz and Ronnie Magsanoc, the ex-Maroons who have said yes are Mike Arandia (1992-95), Dexter Racho (1994-97), Edrick Ferrer (1997-00), Pat Aquino (1989-92), and Mark Jomalesa (1997-01). Still unsure are Bing Victoria and Lito Vergara, among others.

I saw Mike last night and he said Coach Celis has been scheduling regular practices every weekend at the CHK gym, but attendance has been spotty. :)

Nice to see names like Bert Ortiz, Jet Guevarra, Yeng Guiao and Joel Javier there. Sana nga maglaro sila. Everybody points to the arrival of Lipa and the Red cubs as the turning point for UP Basketball. Personally, I think that 1981 team deserves a lot of credit for laying the foundation by demonstrating that a UP team could compete with the FEUs and UEs.

Coached by Dave Perez, the team finished tied for 2nd with UST (the team led by Ed Cordero, if I'm not mistaken). The FEU juggernaut with Anthony Williams, McGarry, Valle, Valerio, Amador, et. al. swept the elims. But UP played them tough in both rounds.

Mateen,

1981 team? I though that was Lipa's first year?

Hmmm, if Mike isn't in the line-up, he must feel terrible. I think he was one of the first people contacted by the Filoil people, and he also personally contacted many of the '90s-era players.

Oops! my bad, sort of... To be accurate, the Bert Ortiz-led UP team that finished in a tie for 2nd place, played in the first semester of the 1980-1981 season. ;D

Ex-cage stars back in Homegrown Cup

First posted 02:28am (Mla time) Mar 12, 2006

Inquirer



Editor's Note: Published on page A31 of the March 12, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer


FORMER cage stars put on their old sneakers to represent their respective schools in the UAAP and NCAA in a tournament dubbed the Total-Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup.

Commissioner Virgil Villavicencio said the competition will try to relive the hard court exploits of former standouts from Ateneo, De La Salle, Far Eastern, Letran, San Beda College and University of the Philippines, who later became attractions in the Philippine Basketball Association.

Among the former pros playing are Steve Watson, Fritz Gaston and Joy Carpio of Ateneo, La Salle's Lim Eng Beng and now San Miguel coach Jong Uichico, Chito Loyzaga, Boybits Victoria and Frankie Lim of San Beda, UP's Ronnie Magsanoc, Glenn Capacio, Harmon Codinera and Ronald Magtulis of FEU and Letran's Samboy Lim.

The tournament kicks off on March 18 at the San Juan Gymnasium along with a junior division from the six participating teams.

"This is a reunion of sorts for the varsity stars of the past," said Villavicencio, who graced yesterday's press conference at the Kamayan Edsa together with league chair David Dualan and project director Anthony Suntay.

The inaugural season will have two conferences with the next conference slated in September.

Tournament format calls for a single-round battle with the top two teams vying for the winner-take-all championship game.

The tournament is also sponsored by Immuvit, X-24 and Accel.

Former PBA coach Chito Narvasa will call the shots for Ateneo, Glenn Capacio for FEU, Lim Eng Beng for La Salle, Itoy Esguerra for Letran, Chito Loyzaga for San Beda and Raymund Celis for UP.

Ateneo, La Salle relive feud in Homegrown Cup

The Philippine Star 03/15/2006

It will be less-physical but just as intense as any La Salle-Ateneo duel.

That’s what officials behind the Total-FilOil-Flying V Homegrown Cup could guarantee on the prospect of another Blue Eagles-Archers clash once the short, six-team tournament reels off on March 25 at the San Juan gym.

"Definitely, we’ll make it a point to avoid such untoward incident. I’d like to believe that all of us have matured," said Homegrown Cup commissioner Virgil Villavicencio in the PSA Forum yesterday at the main function room of the Pantalan Restaurant in Manila.

The Homegrown Cup is actually an expanded but more competitive version of the series of Ateneo-La Salle exhibition matches, with four other schools — Letran, San Beda, University of the Philippines and Far Eastern U — joining the fray.

It aims to bring back to the hard court former stars of all six schools that will meet in a single round robin and reaffirm their glorious collegiate and professional past.

Unfortunately, a fistfight led by Archer Joseph Yeo marred the last La Salle-Ateneo exhibition match at the Araneta Coliseum that almost led to a walkout by the Blue Eagles.

"Actually, `it’s the young ones who are really emotional ," admitted Villavicencio, who was joined in the session sponsored by PAGCOR by project head Anthony Suntay.

"But this tournament is more than just an exhibition game since a lot are at stake. Hindi lang bragging rights So, it’s actually more competitive in nature," said Villavicencio, a former coaching staff of the Talk `N Text team in the PBA.

Familiar names from the 70s will be on hand: Steve Watson, Fritz Gaston, Joy Carpio (Ateneo); Lim Eng Beng, Peter Ley, Kenneth Yap (La Salle); and Chito Loyzaga and Frankie Lim (San Beda).

The 80s and 90s will also be represented: Samboy Lim (Letran); Jong Uichico, Aldo Perez and former Lipa Vice-Mayor Boy Manguerra (La Salle); Glenn Capacio, Harmon Codiñera and Ronald Magtulis (FEU); Ronnie Magsanoc, Yeng Guiao and Bert Ortiz (UP); and Boybits Victoria and Ralph Rivera (San Beda).

Teams will play a single elimination round, with the top two squads advancing in the one-game final.

The champion gets R80,000 that will be returned to the school by way of scholarships while runner-up receives R40,000.

An additional spice to the tournament is the participation of the institutions’ high school squads, an opportunity to develop the youth and showcase future stars.

Former PBA coach Chito Narvasa will handle Ateneo, Glenn Capacio for FEU, Lim Eng Beng for La Salle, Itoy Esguerra for Letran, Chito Loyzaga for San Beda and Raymund Celis for UP.

UP Bolsters Line-up with Paras, Magsanoc, Guiao, and Altamirano



No less than Benjie Paras, the 1989 PBA most valuable player and top rookie, is suiting up for the Total-Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup when it kicks off tomorrow at the San Juan gym.

Paras would be playing for the alumni all-stars of University of the Philippines, the school he led to its first UAAP basketball title in 1986, along with Ronnie Magsanoc and Eric Altamirano.

Yeng Guiao, Red Bull coach, is also in the UP lineup of the tournament which has Globe and Shell Aviation, Fuels and Asphalt as sponsors.

A brief opening ceremony, with Francisco ‘Pancho” Pasicolan, president of Filoil, welcoming the participants, Fr. Vic Calvo, Letran athletic moderator, delivering the invocation, and San Juan Mayor JV Ejercito tossing the ceremonial ball, will precede the opening alumni and high school games pitting Letran and De La Salle and Ateneo versus San Beda College.

Supported by Sunbolt, Immuvit, Accel, Gerry’s Grille, Bank of Commerce, Banco de Oro, Security Bank, X-24, Millennium Plans, PBCom and Solar Sports, the weekend tourney, worth P80,000 to the champion and P40,000 to the runnerup, has former La Salle coach Virgil Villavicencio as commissioner, Anthony Suntay as project head, and David Dualan as league chairman.

i think it's okay na may bayad kasi napaka-unique ng liga nila. novelty idea. biro mo ba naman, papalaruin mo ulit yung mga players ng 70's, 80's and 90's. hindi biro yun ah. the organizers really have done a one hell of a job. okay lang magbayad basta makita ko lang yung mga dating players okay na ko.

tsaka, wala ng libre ngayon!

La Salle won over Letran. Forgot the score. Letran tried to inch to the La Salle lead at fourth quarter but they ran out of gas. Disappointing, I didn't see Lim Eng Beng or Samboy Lim :( Nice to see Noli Locsin, John Cardel, Dwight Lago, and Tony Boy Espinosa donning the green jerseys. There was a commotion too, between a Letranite and La Sallian player. Basketball lang yan!

San Beda won over Ateneo. Ugh. It was a horror. Ateneo led at the first half by 15 points behind Rainier Sison's great shooting. At the third, San Beda cut the lead down to 2, 42-44, but Ateneo answered it by a ?-0 run which Rainier Sison started. A trey by San Beda gave the Lions the lead, 55-54, and shucks, all outside shots of San Beda started to go in. Parang walang mintis talaga! On the other hand, Ateneo lost its touch from the outside. And ugh, the "rented" bands were playing loud, pinoprovoke pa ng San Beda alumni. Can someone have them thrown away? or please, will the BBB come out next time to lend cheers to old warriors? Dang. San Beda led as much as 11? 15? entering the last two minutes.

Seemed that Elmer Reyes was the "Astig-Revicon" player of the game, I don't know how much time did he spend on the bench kasi he was on the court almost the entire ballgame.

Disappointments: Steve Watson, Fritz Gaston, and Joy Carpio weren't there :( So were Boybits Victoria and Ralph Rivera of San Beda.

In the Jrs, Ateneo lost to San Beda by 8 points, as Blue Eaglet Enzo Katipunan texted me. Shucks.

I hope that Benjie Paras would really suit up for UP as stated in the papers.

Hey! didn't see you there.. I was seated behind the La Salle bench during the first game and eventually Ateneo's.

The scuffle was between Moody and Manguerra.. hehe.. game became a little serious when Letran made a small run near the end of the game. I was also looking to see Samboy play pero no show nga siya as with some of the Archers and Blue Eagles listed on their team's line ups.

The Beda-Ateneo game was a come from behind victory. The Eagles looked to win it until the Lion rally near the end of the 3rd quarter. It was nice to see Rainier hitting those threes again, hitting 3s all over the 1st half. But the Eagle shooting and run and gun style of play went sour almost the entire 4th quarter leaving the door wide open for the roaring Lions. As posted ^ Elmer Reyes was in the game for almost the entire game as well as Reroma who hit back to back triples and was most probably the best player of the game (if there is one).

I think i sat in front of gameface1.. i have a feeling it was him.. ;D ;D

well, there were a lot of surprises in the lineups, like Locsin, Cardel, Espinosa, and Allen Patrimonio. I wonder if Boybits wasn't allowed by San Miguel also. :( Nga pala, are the SMB Touring All-Stars barred from playing in the flying V cup?

gameface_one: You saw me wearing the watson jersey? Shucks. :P I was waiting for watson to come out so I can have my replica autographed kaso as you've said, he's not around.

there's really a lot of glitch for first timers. but then i think the opening turned out very well. nway, marami sa mga players na nakalista hindi naglaro. samboy lim didnt play because of injury, same with steve watson. tska kahit pla wala injury si samboy hindi rin siya papayagan ng san miguel corp. i hope next time maglaro na si jolas and eric reyes sa ateneo. same with ralph rivera and frankie lim sa san beda.

samboy lim and boybits victoria were spotted on the san miguel bench when the beermen beat the barakos in an out-of-town game in urdaneta, pangasinan, which explains why they were absent yesterday. am not sure, though, if the members of the san miguel all-stars are contractually barred from playing in the homegrown league, for i do know that letran's billy moody was and probably still is in the SMB all-stars roster. my opinion is that if they weren't allowed right at the onset, there's no sense in inserting their names in the first place.

anyway, sayang yung pagkatalo ng ateneo. but more than that, what i'd love to see is a reunion of the powerhouse letran lineup with samboy, jerry gonzales and company as well as the only UP team to ever win a UAAP title. GO MAROONS!!!

I think the reason Ateneo established that lead early in the game was because this team has a core of players playing together in the very recent past. Just to stress a point, when was the last time we heard of San Beda playing in an "alumni event" ? Whereas, Ateneo alumni have their own series against LaSalle to begin with. Obviously, they have a semblance of a team out there.

But for San Beda, I doubt if these Lions had practiced together for more than 1 session. Kung mahigit sa isa, practice pa rin yun at hindi actual game.

San Beda was timid in the first half. Only Guzman and Reroma were in "competitive mode". The rest were "parang nagkakahiyaan or nagpapakiramdaman". I wonder what Coach Cholo Martin said in the locker room at half time at nagbago ang timpla ng laro nila sa 2nd half.

The Narvasa brothers of Ateneo were shaking their heads in disbelief as San Beda converted one triple after another. Also, Elmer Reyes forced a lot of turnovers by his timely double-teaming resulting to easy 2 points. Once San Beda established that lead, Guzman and Reroma took over, controlled the pace and cruised to victory.

On the Juniors side, I think everyone expected the Red Cubs to win this one. But the Eaglets showed a lot of grit on court. I was surprised by the competitiveness of the game. I thought it will be a blowout. But the kids in Blue have so much pride to allow a repeat of the massacre that took place the last time these two teams met.

I seldom see UAAP juniors at play since their play days are different from the varsity. But if this game is to serve as an indicator, Ateneo Jrs. should be in next season's UAAP title series.

^Sayang lang since Ateneo Juniors ranked #1 in the eliminations but was defeated twice in the Final Four by UPIS. Well, I hope they would be there in the Finals again being the Most Defensive Team in the UAAP Juniors as always.

I've nothing against San Beda and you have to give credit to the Beda players for not giving up despite being down by 15 points entering the half. And nung 3rd quarter, pumapasok na talaga tira nila as if malaki yung butas ng ring (maybe that's the reason why Ateneo led in the first half kasi sa laki ng butas ng home court nila nung 1st half :P).

* not to mention yung iba eh sobrang busy ng schedule kaya nahihirapan makapag-commit sa lahat ng games.
* Ralph Rivera was not able to play in their 1st game because his father had a heart attack early in the morning. (with due respect to Ralph)

The Ateneo-Letran alumni game was... I don't know how to describe it... horrible? Ateneo never led the game and trailed by as much as 15 points; that they could only cut Letran's lead by 9? 8? Not even the final score reflected how Ateneo _struggled_ throughout the game. :( Mistades had a great shooting afternoon. Kudos to the Knights. Ateneo made its own run in the last 30 seconds by scoring nine points, but it wasn't enough to overtake letran. Score: 60-65 (err... I'll verify that). Nope, Lastimosa didn't play... so did Eric Reyes.

Meanwhile, the Ateneo-Letran high school game was exciting. Neither team lead by as much as 6 points. From the opening tip, Ateneo led by 4? 6 pts before the Squires woke up from their slumber and made their run. Since then the game was close; I think the biggest lead after that Squires run in the first up to the last two minutes was just 4 points. The lead kept on tossing between the two teams. Grabe. Err... I didn't have sleep today, but I couldn't leave the game at halftime because I knew it would be an exciting one. The game was so intense that a technical was called on a Squire, and Rivera of Ateneo even had to be restrained at the end of the ballgame. Ugh guys, sportsmanship?

Enzo Katipunan... I don't know how to describe his game. Coming off the bench, he drilled in those crucial treys (about 5? 6?) and outside shots made those interceptions (I counted two). And this guy is coming off an ACL injury about two years ago. End score, 75-70.

Ok, off to sleep. I wanna see the boxscores soon, gameface_one :D

La Salle primes up for Ateneo, sweeps FEU

The Philippine Star 04/03/2006

Dominique Uy scored 16 points and the De La Salle All-Stars cruised to their second straight victory, a 79-65 rout of UAAP rival Far Eastern in the Total-Filoil-Flying-V Homegrown Cup at the San Juan gym.

In the tournament sponsored by Shell and Globe and supported by Banco de Oro, Bank of Commerce, Security Bank, Accel, Sunbolt, Millenium Plans, Immuvit, X-24, Gerry’s Grill, Inihaw Circle, PBCom and Solar Sports, La Salle made it a double victory by beating the FEU Baby Tamaraws, 79-70, in the high school division.

Dwight Lago and Tyrone Bautista added 12 points each as the Green Archers alumni of coach Gabby Velasco rallied from a 29-32 halftime deficit, using a huge third quarter explosion to blow the game open and prime them up for Saturday’s much-awaited encounter with bitter rival Ateneo.

The Blue Eagles of coach Chito Narvasa, meanwhile, absorbed their second straight setback, falling to the Letran Knights of coach Itoy Esguerra, 69-62, behind the 17 points of Bonbon Lim and the 10 of Billy Moody.

The Knights rebounded from an opening day loss to La Salle. The Ateneo Eaglets, on the other hand, denied Letran a double celebration by edging the Squires, 70-65.

I hope that the organizers of this tournament realize that violence could erupt in any one of the games being played inasmuch as the protoganists were once upon a time fierce rivals 20 or so years ago with rabid followers even up to this time. Take the case of Ateneo-Sanbeda and Lasalle-Letran Memories of past violence could open up old wounds and the slightest provocation during tight and highly contested games may spark mayhem.

Not to underestimate their capability to run this tournament, it is better for the organizers to have security in place just in case any untoward incident could lead into an uncontrollable crowd/student behavior. Mahirap na kasi PRIDE is at stake here and "Bragging Rights". We all know masyadong ma-Pride ang mga pinoy basketbal fans lalo na sa kani-kanilang alma mater.

If ever this happens, it is going to be the first and last tournament. I hope not because this is such a novelty league ;).Good day!

Totoo ba itong balita sa barangay namin na magkakaroon ng second conference ang Homegrown Cup sa second semester nitong darating na schoolyear? Tamang-tama raw na tapos na ang UAAP at NCAA kaya pwede nang magkaroon ng college division. Heto ang siste. Ang lahat ng koponan ay dapat 50% "homegrown." Ibig sabihin nito ay kailangang at least kalahati ng college line-up ay galing sa sariling high school ng mga paaralang sasali. Heto pa. Balak pang taasan ng mga organizers ang percentage na ito sa mga susunod na conference hanggang maging 100% "homegrown."

Nagpapatawa naman kayo, mga pare. Anong koponan ang sasali sa college division ninyo kung ganyan ang patakaran? Wala. Walang koponan ngayon ang 50% "homegrown" at lubusang malabo na magkakaroon pa. Anong paaralan na kasali na sa UAAP, NCAA o ibang pang mga collegiate leagues ang sadyang magbubuo ng ganitong klaseng koponan para lang sumali sa liga n'yo? Wala. Sige, good luck na lang, ha.

Granting totoo ang balita na magkakaroon ng college division at magiging patakaran na kailangan di bababa sa 5 ang homegrown--

I think hindi mahirap mag-imbita ng paaralan para mabuo ang liga.

First, we have to recognize the fact this Homegrown tournament has no illusions of having a big roster of teams. I think they will be contented to have 6 teams.

Now, looking at the basketball landscape, I can easily count 4 teams who can easily insert 5 homegrown talents for this purpose, Ateneo, DLSU, Letran and San Beda. So, dalawa na lang ang kulang.

I think UP can come up with a team with 5 homegrown talents. Most of UPIS graduates stay at UP for college. They may not be in the varsity team, but kung dyan rin naka-enroll, these kids can be easily invited to be part of the team for the Homegrown event. The same with UST, most of their junior players stay at UST.

Kung 6 teams lang ang kailangan para tumakbo ang liga, I think this can easily be done.

According to the tournament organizers, there were no untoward incidents during the All-Stars game between FEU and Letran this past weekend.* There were the usual complaints against the officiating during the game by both coaches, Danny Gavieres of FEU and Itoy Esguerra of Letran, and nothing more.* In fact, they added, the atmosphere was relatively light due to a number of comical moments during the game.

OFF TOPIC:* THE ORGANIZERS OF THE HOMEGROWN CUP HAS RESERVED TWENTY (20) FREE TICKETS FOR GAMEFACE FORUMS REGULARS FOR THIS SATURDAY'S GAMEDAY (1:00-2:30pm, High School, Ateneo vs La Salle; 2:30-4:00pm, All-Stars, Ateneo vs La Salle).* PLEASE PM ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.

There are unconfirmed reports that UP has committed full partiicipation in the second conference of the Homegrown Cup, although it's the women's team that will play in the college division, donning the Miriam College colors.

THE PAST and the future of bitter rivals De La Salle and Ateneo clash at the resumption of the Total-Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup today at the San Juan gym.

The All-Stars clash at 2:30 p.m. after the 1 p.m. encounter between the schools' high school teams in the tournament sponsored by Globe and Shell and supported by Bank of Commerce, Banco de Oro, Flying V Biodiesel, Immuvit, Accel, Gerry's Grill, Millenium Plans, Inihaw Circle, PBComm and Security Bank.

The two squads occupy both ends of the pole. La Salle, behind Tony Boy Espinosa, Noli Locsin, Johnedel Cardel, Tyrone Bautista, Allen Patrimonio, Dwight Lago and Dominique Uy, is 2-0, having beaten Letran and Far Eastern University.

Ateneo, meanwhile, still has to make a dent after two games, and key Blue Eagle players Rainier Sison, Jimmy Tioseco, Epok Quimpo and Gene Afable face rough sailing against the fancied Green Archers.

But throw all statistics out the window. When these two universities meet, it's all about heart.

La Salle-Greenhills edged the Letran, 68-65, and demolished the FEU Baby Tamaraws 79-70, while the Ateneo Eaglets rebounded from a loss to the SBC Red Cubs by besting the Squires 70-65.

The Red Lions alumni picked up their third straight win, keeping pace with idle De La Salle. The Knights fell to 2-2, putting in peril their title aspiration in this maiden tournament sponsored by Shell and Globe and backed up by Sunbolt, Immuvit, Accel, Inihaw Circle, Bank of Commerce, Banco de Oro, PBCom, Gerry’s Grill, X-24, Security Bank, and Millennium Plans.

The Far Eastern Tamaraws All-Stars, meanwhile, notched their first win in three starts, downing University of the Philippines, 75-69, behind Glenn Capacio’s 18 points.

In high school action, the Red Cubs matched their seniors’ effort, streaking to their third consecutive win by beating the Squires, 66-60, while the Baby Tamaraws made it a double for FEU, turning back UPIS, 62-56.

Archers down UP five, prime up vs Red Lions

The Philippine Star 04/25/2006

Make way for the collision between De La Salle and San Beda, the only unbeaten teams in the Total-Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup.

The Green Archer All-Stars streaked to their fourth straight victory by downing University of the Philippines, 89-80, priming up for their much-awaited encounter with the idle Red Lions (3-0).

In the tournament sponsored by Shell and Globe and supported by Sunbolt, Immuvit, Accel, Inihaw Circle, Bank of Commerce, Banco de Oro, PBCom, Gerry’s Grill, X-24, Security Bank and Millennium Plans, ex-pros Tony Boy Espinosa poured 35 points, Johnedel Cardel 20 and Noli Locsin 19 as La Salle sent the Fighting Maroons to their third straight loss.

In the other alumni game, Far Eastern University, with Eric Gascon unloading 33 points, weathered a fierce fourth quarter comeback by Ateneo, 92-89, to stay in contention with its second win in four games, sharing third place with idle Letran.

In high school action, La Salle-Greenhills crushed UP Integrated School, 73-56, for its third win in four games, while the FEU Baby Tamaraws edged the Ateneo Blue Eaglets, 67-66, for a 2-2 slate.

The idle San Beda Red Cubs are unbeaten in three games.

The Alumni Stars lost, 100-92.They began with only 5 players, Cholo Martin and Cristobal at guard, Noel Guzman and Sonny Manucat at forward, and Guin Nabung at center, with Robert Magalong joining the team later.. The FEU Tamaraws fielded about twelve or more men. They did not fall into the trap La Salle fell into... They won mainly on scoring by Andy de Guzman and the hustle of Arnold Padaong and several others. The Lionhearted Alumni kept fighting, but lack of manpower took its toll as fatigue set in. The Tamaraws meanwhile kept fielding well rested men, though andy De Guzman was in the game most of the time. Sonny Manucat ws impressive, scoring threes in bunches, and Guzman still finding the mark from downtown and making dribble drives throughout.

The Juniors , as usual, won via relentless hustle and defense anchored on slotman Dave Marcelo's shotblocking/altering presence in the paint.

Thanks for the news... but I meant to ask was, is there news on the newspapers about the San Beda - La Salle match up like the other games did? gameface one posted an article from the newspapers announcing this big game, but there was no news i guess on any newspapers on the RESULT... i wanted to know the recap on what happened on the game sana, etc... and sayang na din, it would've been good marketing for our school's and gameface's basketball events... does gameface or "anybody else" pay to market our events to be posted or not be posted on newspapers?

Games Today (San Juan gym) 2 p.m. — San Beda vs. La Salle (AS) 4 p.m. — Ateneo vs, San Beda (HS) ——————



THIS IS for all the marbles.

San Beda’s Red Lion All-Stars and Red Cubs shoot for both jewels today in the maiden championships of the Total-Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup today at the San Juan gym.

Out to deny the Red Lions, powered by Sonny Manucat and Brit Reroma, in the alumni final at 2 p.m. are the De La Salle Green Archers, led by ex-pros Noli Locsin, Dwight Lago, Johnedel Cardel and Tony Boy Espinosa.

Meanwhile, looking to frustrate the Red Cubs in the high school title showdown at 4 p.m. are the Ateneo Blue Eaglets, who shocked De La Salle-Greenhills in their pulsating playoff, 59-57, to earn the right to face San Beda.

League commissioner Virgil Villavicencio expressed gratitude at the support received by the tournament sponsored by Shell and Globe and backed up by Sunbolt, Immuvit, Accel, Inihaw Circle, Bank of Commerce, Banco de Oro, PBCom, Gerry’s Grill, X-24, Security Bank and Millennium Plans.

"We’d like to thank the schools that participated. I hope we were able to help in the development of their teams for future competition," said Villavicencio, who also paid tribute to their supporters, "most especially Mr. Raffy Villavicencio (Filoil CEO), for providing us with an eye-opener for another tournament."

Announcement for the Mythical Five and Most Valuable Player for both divisions will be made before the respective championship games, with the awarding ceremonies to follow right after the matches.

Villavicencio promised a more competitive high school and alumni tourney next year, while baring plans of holding a Homegrown Cup collegiate level competition this October after the NCAA and UAAP wars.

POSTSCIPT:

On the Schedule:

If organizers of this event intends to make this an annual tournament, maybe they should consider having this completed before Holy Week.

As it is, particularly in the All-Star Division where obviously most are family men, many were off to their easter holidays with their families.

So many players were absent when the tournament resumed after Holy Week break. Actually, the last playing day before the break already saw many players missing. The situation became worse after Easter.

To start the tournament after the Holy Week may also have the same disadvantages, as this will be in the middle of school vacation, and the same thing may happen--- many will be unavailable because they are off to take vacations with the families.

Sayang yung competition if many players withdraw or are unable to play because they have promised their kids a vacation somewhere far from Manila.

On the Officiating:

Officating was hardly a factor in the All-Star c'ship game as DLSU AS estabished a big margin early in the game.

But in the HS Division, that was one terribly officiated c'ship game.

Regardless who won, the loser would certainly have the referees to blame; and that would be taking away credit from the winner.

The men who officiated the 2 c'ship games are individuals who I hardly see officiate in very crucial matches in either the NCAA or the UAAP, or even the FMC. Though I think they belong to the same group of referees.

If the Organizers are willing to pay good money to this referee's organization, they should demand top tier members officiate in the c'ship games.

The fact that we have a San Beda - Ateneo finale in the HS division, they know that these kids are well-coached, well motivated and plays with a lot of pride and intensity. Then they should assure that the referees are at par with the quality of play.

Huwag maliitin dahil highschool lang, dahil di naman basta-basta maglaro yan dalawang team na iyan.

Buti na lang at hidni dikit yung AS game, or else it would have been more excruciating for a hardcore like me.
