View Full Version : DEFENDING THE CROWN

FEU technically has a three-peat with the voluntary forfeiture of the Season 67 Basketball diadem by the Lasalle Green Archers. They have won the UAAP Men's basketball crown two out of the last three years. They've always been among the top contenders parading lineups that regularly send all-stars to the PBA. In their two championship seasons they've had two-time MVP Arwind Santos, Jonas Villanueva, Denok Miranda, Gerard Jones, Mark Isip, RJ Rizada, Jeff Chan, Dom Yabut and a host of other key players.

Season 69 could be a little tough for the boys from Morayta though. Santos and Isip are gone, depriving the Tams of at least 60% of their scoring and rebounding from last season. So who will now step up for the Tams? There are at least two key veterans remaining: Jonas Villanueva and RV Mangahas, joined by Jerome Villanueva and Francis Barcellano. Probable newcomers would include dynamic smingmen Ron Cabagnot, Marnel "The Archangel" Barachael, and athletic frontliners JR Gerilla and Jun Vinluan.

So, what does the title defense picture look like?

I think Jeff Chan will play a bigger part in their defense more then Mangahas.

it'll be a rebuilding season for FEU. the key therefore is overcoming the learning curve and filling the roles to be vacated by mark isip and arwind santos.

i felt FEU was able to gamble a lot on offense and defense last season because of arwind, and to me that is the biggest adjustment they have to make. di na sila pwedeng sumugal gaya ng dati, kaya malamang maninibago pa sila lalo na sa unang elimination round. that being said, i feel FEU will become a stronger, more competitive team when the second round comes. that's when the league should start worrying about the tamaraws.

The FEU team next season can mostly like be compared to that of La Salle's in Season 66 or 2003 wherein they had couple of veterans like Cardona, Sharma and Ramos and had many rookies. :)

Has Chan used up his eligibility already? Rizada too?

Malaking pagsubok itong darating na UAAP kay Coach Bert Flores. Ang biruan nga rito sa barangay namin, eh, kahit na 'yung coach ng all-star namin na may-ari ng hardware ay kayang magpa-champion kung ganoon kalakas ang minana niyang koponan. Ngayong wala na sina Santos, Rizada at Isip, kailangan maipakita ni Flores na hindi lang siya sinuwerte.

Esjay the slot order of the SMB teams(SMB,Purefoods and Coca cola) in the draft is to be established first. Though their numbers are of advantage i am highly doubtful if they would be picking in the first top three. Arwind behind williams, rob reyes or devance i think are bottled up or locked in these slots. the SMB franchises i think will be drafting way behind from the fourth or so slots although i am not sure if they acquired rights to top picks during the trades.* *

Just so we're clear: Jonas Villanueva, Jerome Villanueva, Marlon Adolfo, Jeff Chan, RJ Rizada, RB Mangahas, Francis Barcellano are all RETURNING next year for FEU? That's already half the roster, and if Ron Cabagnot, Marnel Barachael, JR Gerilla and Jun Vinluan are coming in, that's already a respectable 11-man rotation. If Coach Bert Flores finds a way to make these guys play as a team and peak at just the right time, without putting undue pressure especially on the young guys, the Final 4 is a lock, and whoever they face there better be 100% ready, or FEU will get a chance to at least defend their Crown in what promises to be a slambang Finals.

San Sebastian handed FEU its ass last Saturday in FMC action. Considering Jing Viray had no Leo Najorda and no Red Vicente to help him, the blowout was truly shocking. FEU played almost their full roster (Jeff Chan was the only one absent) and yet simply could not get anything going against the highly disciplined Stags. Jonas Villanueva was the only sign of life for FEU in this sorry loss. Barachael, Cabagnot, even the veteran Mangahas were very listless.

When Coach Flores first became head coach he had the luxury of inheriting a "championship caliber" lineup. It was a legit c'ship contender.

Sabi nga ng mga miron, kahit barangay coach, kayang ipag-champion yung line-up na minana niya.

But with the player turnover now happening, masusubukan na yung galing niya as a coach.

Tama si Joescoundrel, that defeat to San Sebastian was shocking.

Pero, di ba ganyan rin ang nangyari sa FEU during their Home and Away opening game against San Beda? Tinambakan rin sila. But FEU recovered from that loss and in fact made it into the semis.

But still, with key players from last season gone, ngayon pa lang masusubukan si Coach Flores.

Oo nga Oca. Pero sana lang makapag adjust na sila both on the coaching philo of Coach Bert and sa bagong papel nila na ngayong wala na ang mga pangunahing manlalaro sa koponan nila. para maging magnda pa rin ang mga match up's nila sa mga ibang teams particularly UE and Ateneo.

From UBelt.com:


Far Eastern University Tamaraws
2005 win-loss record: 15-2 (1st)
Head coach: Bert Flores
Additions: C Billy Afable, F Marnel Baracael, F Riel Cervantes, F J.R. Gerilla, F John Gonzales, and G Arthur Reyes.
Subtractions: G Paul Flores, F Mark Isip, F Reymond Nietes, GF RJ Rizada, F Eder Saldua, and F Arwind Santos.

Roster:

Marlon Adolfo 6’2”
Billy Ray Afable 6’4”
Marnel Baracael 6’4”
Francis Barcellano 6’5”
Riel Cervantes 6’4”
Jeffrei Chan 6’3”
John Dela Cruz 6’1”
Benedict Fernandez 6’0”
Alfredo Gerilla 6’4”
John Gonzales 6’3”
Roser Mangahas 6’3”
Arthur Reyes 5’11”
Jerome Villanueva 5’9”
Jonas Villanueva 6’0”

Projected starting five: Francis Barcellano, Jeff Chan, RB Mangahas, Benedict Fernandez and Jonas Villanueva

Is there life after Arwind Santos? And Mark Isip and RJ Rizada for that matter? The FEU Tamaraws will know the answer to this question soon as they begin defense of their title without their top three players from last year’s squad.

“Mga 15 rebounds a game ang nawala sa amin nang mawala sina Arwind at Mark,” head coach Bert Flores reckons. Well, to be precise, the real figure is 18.8 (Santos averaged 12.7rpg and Isip 6.1), but who’s really counting? The point is, FEU no longer has the UAAP’s best player for the past two seasons, as well as the league’s best post player in Isip, and one of its best shooters in Rizada. But if you really want to quantify exactly how big a loss this is, we’re talking something in the vicinity of 34 points, 21 rebounds and 3 blocks per game. Those were the combined averages of the three last season.

And Flores knows this. “Isama mo pa si Eder (Saldua) at Paul (Flores), parang isang starting five ang nawala sa akin,” he said.

With those players gone, expect Jeff Chan to become the team’s go-to guy. The six-three forward was the team’s third-leading scorer last season with 10ppg, behind only Santos and Isip. In the recent PBL Unity Cup, Chan played brilliantly, at times even outscoring his more celebrated teammates. With a steady stroke from the outside plus an ability to create his own shot off the dribble, he should be one of the premier players in the league this coming season.

Manning the frontline will be six-five Francis Barcellano and six-three RB Mangahas, two players whose hustle and court smarts make up for their lack of athleticism. Santos and Isip these two ain’t, but they do what it takes to win games and their championship experience will be counted on.

Quarterbacking the defending champions will be sophomore Jonas Villanueva, whose height creates an instant mismatch at the point guard position. Villanueva should be more mature this year, and should easily improve on his 6.2 point average last year as the team’s second-best player this year. Joining him in the back court will be third-year guard Benedict Fernandez, who averaged 3.3ppg last season playing behind Rizada.

The bench, though, isn’t as deep as it was, with six of nine players being rookies. The three veterans among the relievers are Marlon Adolfo, JR Dela Cruz and Jerome Villanueva, none of whom are post players, meaning Flores will have to rely on rookies to spell big men Barcellano and Mangahas. Of the six newcomers, expect six-four Macmac Baracael and six-four JR Gerilla to step and contribute immediately.

Rounding up the team are the four remaining rookies – six-four Billy Afable, six-three John Gonzales, five-eleven Archie Reyes and six-four Riel Cervantes. Afable and Gonzales should get some playing time. Reyes isn’t expected to do much, though, while Cervantes only made the team after center Reymond Nietes injured his knee in a recent Fr. Martin Cup game.

Flores picks Ateneo and UE as the teams to beat this year, saying he expects a “big challenge” from these two teams. But he expects his boys to be in the thick of things. “Laban pa rin kami. Bilog ang bola.”

Modest goals for Tamaraws in new UAAP cage season


By Jasmine W. Payo
Inquirer
Last updated 00:22am (Mla time) 07/01/2006

Published on page A28 of the July 1, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

THEIR GOAL in the University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) men’s basketball tournament has become slightly modest.

“Our target is the top two, the twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four,” said Far Eastern Tamaraws coach Bert Flores.

Apparently, the defending champions have become more cautious in baring their goals, a clear departure from their confident attitude last year when they harped about winning it all right from Day 1.

Flores, after all, has lost the core of the team that swept rock-solid La Salle in the Finals last year.

The biggest -- literally and figuratively -- departure was Arwind Santos, the league Most Valuable Player of the last two seasons who will join the PBA Draft in August.

“May halong kaba (There’s nervousness),” admitted Flores, just more than a week before the UAAP gets off the ground. “Arwind is a big loss to the team, especially in rebounds and blocks.”

The impact of Santos’ loss will be hard to ignore, as the team not only lost his averages of 13.1 points, 12.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks of last year, but also the leadership that has steadied the team in the past.

Moreover, the Tamaraws have to do without the services of other key players, including Mark Isip and shooter RJ Rizada.

But Flores still holds high hopes for the team which will be led by veteran guard Jeff Chan, sophomore playmaker Jonas Villanueva and 6-foot-6 center Francis Barcellano.

“We still have tall wingmen,” said Flores. “Our advantage is still our defense. We still have a good point guard in Jonas.”

Flores also cited the Tamaraws’ good run in pre-season competitions, including the invitational tourney in Jakarta, Indonesia.

“We achieved a lot in other leagues,” he said. “In Jakarta, we were able to compete against China, Indonesia and Thailand. We just lost in the knockout game for the finals against China.”

Flores picked University of the East and Ateneo as the strongest teams this season.

“If we get past UE (in the first round), we’d know if we still have a chance,” he said. “The players have adjusted (to their respective roles). We just have to improve on our rebounding and our ball movement.”

FEU's last crown was in 2005. It is technically on a drive for back-to-back titles, not a three-peat.

I was quite surprised that Ron Ryan Cabagnot was not included in the line-up. I assumed that he was a lock for FEU's Team A, having served the required residency and played productively for Team B in the FMC conferences. Wasn't he in Team A during this last FMC Summer League? What's the story?

Kontra sa tinuturing na pinakamalakas team, ang UE - talo.

Sa isang team na sabing makikipag-agawan sa pang-apat na poste sa F4, ang UST - talo.

Laban sa sinasabing mangungulelat, ang NU - talo pa rin.

Sa takbo ng nasabing tatlong laro, tiyak bumababa na ang morale ng team. Kung sinubukan ang coaching staff sa loob ng court sa mga nagdaang talo. Mas lalo silang masusubukan off court. Paano nila itataas ang morale at confidence level ng team. Paano maibabalik ang focus sa laro.

Ang sistema ng pustahan dito sa barangay namin ukol sa UAAP, eh, bago mag-opening sino ang papasok ng Final Four, pagkatapos ng first round sino ang maglalaban sa Finals at pagkatapos ng second round sino ang magiging Champion. Ang pinakamabigat ang pusta na papasok sa Final Four ay UE, Ateneo at UST. Sa maniwala kayo o hindi, halos tabla ang FEU at Adamson sa pang-apat na pwesto. Malaki rin ang side bet kung sino sa UP at NU ang magiging kulelat.

Hindi ako mamumusta pero naniniwala pa rin ako na hulog ng langit kay Flores ng FEU and pagkapanalo nila noong isang taon. Ang mga manlalaro ang nagdala sa coach. Ngayon, sa tingin ko ay hindi na kakayanin nina Villanueva at Chan na buhating muli si Flores kahit papuntang Final Four man lang.

Mabuti naman at naka-isa na sina Bert Flores. Sana lang dere-derecho na. Kung hindi pa biglang nagwala si Jonas Villanueva mukhang aabutin na naman ng kakaibang malas sa UP ang Tams. Magnda din ang pinakitang laro ni Jeff Chan. Sa UP aman tila yata may kaagaw na sa bola si Marvin Cruz, rookie pa mandin, si Migs "De Assassin", ganda ng kamay, parang Renren Ritualo, sana nga lang tumangkad pa kahit ilang pulgada lang.

the game against UST will be the measuring gauge for the tamaraws. galing sa talo, tambak, we shall see how they would react to a team which they lose to in the first round. will it be like the UE game or will they finally taste the first revenge?

Sam Miguel
08-24-2006, 09:35 PM
With five losses thus far, it has become imperative for FEU to now sweep their remaining games or they will run into many complications in the Final 4 picture. UST and Adamson may yet complicate things as well. If FEU is to have any chance at defending their crown they must sweep their remaining games. If they only hover at the .500 mark they may not even make it into a playoff for a Final 4 berth. This is the time for FEU to stop taking chances and start playing smarter basketball. Those broken plays and too many one-on-one's have to stop. Jonas Villanueva and Jeff Chan cannot get the job done between the two of them. Other veterans like Francis Barcellano, RB Mangahas, Marlon Adolfo and Benedict Fernandez need to step it up. Their young guys are looking to them for leadership by example. Newcomers like Marnel Barachael, Billy Afable and JR Gerilla have to stop taking dumb chances and play smart ball.
