View Full Version : CESAFI: Season VI 2006-2007

07-14-2006, 01:11 AM
THE Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Incorporated (CESAFI) will begin its sixth season on July 22, 2006 (Saturday) at the New Cebu City Coliseum. This is without a doubt the biggest college sports association outside of Metro Manila.

Will the mighty University of the Visayas Green Lancers under Coach Elmer "Boy" Cabahug continue to reign as the only Men's Basketball champion the CESAFI has ever known since its birth in school year 2001-2002? Maybe the other member schools have something in mind!

Participating Schools:

Cebu Institute of Technology
Don Bosco Technology Center
University of Cebu
University of San Carlos
University of San Jose-Recoletos
University of Southern Philippines Foundation
University of the Visayas

CESAFI basketball teams face tall order vs UV
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 07/14/2006

"Beat UV!"

This will be the battlecry of teams that are joining the basketball tournament of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc (CESAFI).

Most of the coaches, except for Edito Salacaut of University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) and Rudy Enterina of Don Bosco, claimed their teams are very weak and therefore beating the University of the Visayas Green Lancers in the CESAFI remains an elusive dream to them.

The Lancers hold a 58-1 win-loss record in the CESAFI game history.

Among the coaches who attended the weekly SCOOP Sports Forum yesterday, only Roe Gomez of the University of Cebu Webmasters stood proud with his head high as only his wards were the only team which tarnished the record of the Lancers.

They defeated the Lancers, 75-68, at their hometurf in last year's CESAFI season.

The Webmasters will be parading Allain Abellanosa, their sweet-shooting point guard who is armed with a deadly three-point skill.

When asked what made UV so difficult to beat since during the CAAA years, UV coach Elmer "Boy" Cabahug said the advantage of UV players is that they are better exposed because "we will let them play in other places if there are invitations to play. Diha namo makita kung kinsa gyuy angayan ibutang sa team.

The other factor is their basketball program, recruitment and privileges given to their players, which the other schools find it hard to match.

"We are giving them free board and lodging plus allowances", he said.

Lancers trample Wildcats
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 07/27/2006

The University of the Visayas Green Lancers had a walk in the part victory yesterday as they crushed the Cebu Institute of Technology Wildcats, 120-94, to log their second straight win in the 2006 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the Cebu Coliseum.

In the women's division, defending champion University of Cebu Lady Webmasters made an impressive start by scoring an 84-59 rout of the University of San Jose Recoletos Lady Jaguars.

Now with 60 wins as against a single loss in five years, the best is yet to come for the Lancers when they set a hardcourt date against the University of Cebu Webmasters on Sunday.

To recall, it was only the Webmasters who defeated the Lancers in their five-year CESAFI dominance via a 75-68 decision last September 22, 2005.

The first quarter looked like a warm up for the Lancers but at the end of the second period, the Lancers started to rip the game wide open, ending the half with a 60-48 spread.

Using a very effective half court trapping defense, the Lancers seemed slippery as they toyed with the Wildcats who had more misses than conversions.

Four Lancers finished in double figures with Morsie Akad topping the offense with 17 points even as Jayford Rodriguez and Ritchum Dennison had 16 points each.

Von Harry Lanete finished with 12 points.

The Wildcats had also four players scoring in double figures led by Ramel Guevarra with 25.

Earlier, Allana Lim dominated the paint and led the Lady Webmasters with 17 points while Ma. Melrose Piloyo and Ma. Lun Nicolas had 16 points apiece.

Maricel Fernandez and Clarissa Lanuza also chipped in with 12 points each while Annabel Nieves had 11 points.

The Lady Jaguars were led by Joannah Malinao with 13 points and Sheila Dagatan had 11. Marie Kris Chiong added 10 points for the losing Lady Jaguars.

The scores

First Game:


UC (84) - Lim 17, Piloto 16, Nicolas 16, Lanuza 12, Fernandez 12, Nieves 11, Belonguel 9, Lanik 5, Manaug 2

USJR (59) - Malinao 13, Dagatan 11, Chiong 10, Gasal 4, Vallar 4, Trazona 4, Aclaan 2, Donayre 1

Second Game:


UV (120) - Akad 17, Rodriguez 16, Dennison 16, Lanete 12, Esperat 8, Canoy 8, Manigque 8, Diputado 7, Sendrijas 6 Lasala 3, Omolon 2, Arda 2

CIT (94) - Guevarra 25, Abobo 17, Reyes RJ 15, Aniñon 12, Abapo 9, Lumongsod 6, Montealto 6, Regis 2, Molero 1, Villarba 1

6th CESAFI Cage Wars: UC, USJ-R Eye share of lead
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 07/29/2006

Opening day winners University of Cebu Webmasters and the University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars hope to earn a share of the lead as they go up against each other in the resumption of the 2006 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball action today at the Cebu Coliseum.

Likewise, the UC Junior Webmasters shoot for their second straight win when they clash with the USJ-R Baby Jaguars in the second game at 2:30 pm.

In the other secondary battle, the Cebu Institute of Technology Wildkittens and the University of Southern Philippines-Foundation Panthers square off against each other.

The winner of the UC-USJR tussle will join the 2-0 University of the Visayas Green Lancers on the top of the leaderboard.

The Webmasters pulled a hard-earned 110-102 victory over USP last Sunday, while the Jaguars posted an easy win over Don Bosco College in the opening game last week, 112-73.

Win or lose, UC has a mountain to climb tomorrow as its tackles the Lancers, the undisputed CESAFI champions for the past five years.

Certainly though, the Webmasters are not going to give up the game easily against the Jaguars. They are not just playing at their homecourt, they're also a running team capable of pulling a big surprise.

Offensively, the Webmasters have Allain Abellanosa and Jared Kanet Abatayo to count on.

However, the Jaguars may have a headache if guys like Janssen Abella, Marvin Ceniza, Elizaldy Mamalias, Jonathan Canceran and Michael Estenzo are hitting well from the field.

The Jaguars hope to counter them with Luther Luke Justiniani, Bobby Hatague and Lyndon Gudez. At the frontcourt, they rely on the strength of Randy Pogoy, Ranulfo Malinao and the comebacking Ariel Lozano.

In the main match, USC and USP, both losers in their initial games, aim to break through the win column.

The Warriors will squeeze the most from the fearsome threesome of Enrico Llanto, Niño Ramirez and Vernini Tangarorang, while the rookie-laden Panthers bank on ace center Cleford Maguate, Moncrief Rogado, Bryan Travero and Jason Bartolabac, among others.

Panthers eye win 2 in CESAFI cagefest
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 08/05/2006

The University of Southern Philippines-Foundation (USP-F) Panthers will eye for their second win as they go up against the Don Bosco College in today's lone collegiate match of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the USC gym.

For coach Raul Latonio Sr. and his Panthers, winning tonight could be crucial as they will move up to third place for a possible 2-1 win-loss record.

Also, a victory over the Bosconians is timely as they need a morale booster before they meet the surging USJ-R Jaguars tomorrow in what could be the Panthers most difficult challenge aside from that of the UV Lancers come August 16.

Likewise, two-time women's champion University of Cebu (UC) Lady Webmasters are seeking for a 2-0 tie with idle USC Lady Warriors when they face the Cebu Doctors University White Mares in the preliminary.

Another exciting game in store today is the encounter between secondary defending champion University of the Visayas Baby Lancers who collide with the University of San Carlos Baby Warriors.

In the other high school game, winless Cebu Institute of Technology Wildkittens hope to snap a two-game skid to prevent further agony as they battle against another winless team the University of San Jose-Recoletos Baby Jaguars.

The 1-1 Panthers are badly needing a victory over Don Bosco, hoping to improve their rcord to 2-1 and thereby also moving up to third place behind UV (3-0) and USJ-R (2-0).

Against the rookie team Don Bosco, the only danger for the Panthers is an upset and that would be a different story in tomorrow's quest against the Jaguars.

In their losing debut against USJ-R, 73-112, it was apparent Don Bosco was still disorganized having played in the CESAFI for the first time. Obviously, coach Rudy Enterina must have already learned lessons from that defeat and made some adjustments for today's encounter with the Panthers.

They can count on some reliables including Moncrief Rogado, Randy Colonia, Bryan Travero, Dominic Ceniza, Jason Bartolabac, Marlon Demape and rookie center Cleford Maguate.

Mark Abarquez, Russel Litorja, Jefford Aldave, John Lester Sunga, Richard Vargas and Cyril Pedros are among the other Bosconians to watch.

Meanwhile, the revitalized Baby Warriors rely on Robert Gines Codilla, Dan Junior Bercede, Mark Daniel Caumeran, Nilton John Otida, Jose Adrianne Alocillo and John Philip delos Santos.

The Baby Lancers who wanted to bounce back from their 75-85 loss to USP-F last week, rely on their starting unit including Edrian Lao, Phil Mercader, Christian Camay, Roger Malig-on and Lymuel Malagar.

CESAFI Basketball: Lancers survive scare
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 08/14/2006

The University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars played excellent game for nearly 40 minutes but they failed to upstaged the University of the Visayas Green Lancers, 92-88, in an exciting and well-attended main match of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the Cebu Coliseum.

The Jaguars relied on speed and quickness to outrun the Green Lancers, knowing they cannot match the Lancer's heft and height should they opted to organize their play well.

A lady luck was smiling on the Jagaurs because after trailing by nine points in the third period, 70-61, the largest UV could muster, they slowly came back by way of hustling the Lancers' ball carriers, ending the third period with only a five-point deficit, 67-72.

The Jaguars, then greeted the fourth period with a 9-0 run anchored by Ariel Lozano and a cluster of points from Luther Luje Justiniani and Ryan Arpay to grab the lead, 75-74, still 7:28 left in the ballgame.

Both teams were at the nip-and-tuck battle going into the closing minutes of the fourth period but after Manny Gabas tied the count for the eighth time at 88-all, still 1:10 to go, the Lancers popped out from their shell and playing with pride to protect, made the Jaguars pay for their own miscues.

After Berame was whistled for an offensive foul against Gabas at the 1:04 mark of the final period, the Jaguars missed and in the return play, Von Harry Lanete gave the Lancers the upperhand for the last time on a tipsy-do drive into the middle, 90-88 still 20.2 seconds.

Now with 5-0 win-loss record and 53-1overall in their five-year dynasty in the CESAFI, the Lancers could gain another victory on Wednesday when they battle against the 3-1 University of Southern Philippines-Foundation Panthers at the latter's bailiwick at the USP-Lahug gym.

Berame managed to score 19 points to lead the Lancers' offense while Akad who was having an excellent first half, chipped in 17 points even as Jezar Esperat and rookie guard Ritchum Dennison had 14 points each for UV.

Ariel Lozano carried the offensive load for the Jaguars in the second half using his experience to finish with 12 points behind Justiniani's game-high 23 points and Bobby Hatague's 15 markers.

Earlier, Cebu Institute of Technology finally nailed their first win in four games at the expense of an all-rookie team Don Bosco College but not without a scare losing a 25-point point lead, 52-27, to just four points, 90-86, for the final count.

In the secondary matches, the University of Cebu Junior Webmasters defeated the UV Baby Lancers, 82-73, for their fourth straight victory to tie with idle USP Baby Panthers at the top spot while the Baby Jaguars saved the day for USJ-R by pulling off with a 68-58 win over Don Bosco also for their first win in four games.

With the Baby Jaguars victory and CIT's win, only Don Bosco College has not yet tasted a victory in the collegiate division with 0-4 win-loss record and the Cebu Doctors University in the women's divison with 0-3 win-loss record.

First Game: Secondary

Lancers eye win six in CESAFI cagefest
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 08/16/2006

Powerhouse University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers go for a six-game elimination round sweep tonight when they battle the University of Southern Philippines-Foundation (USP-F) Panthers in the lone collegiate match of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event to be hosted by the Panthers at the USP-Lahug gym.

The UV Baby Lancers, on the other hand, go up against last year's losing finalist Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT) Wildkittens for a possible twinkill today.

In two games this season, the Lancers managed to ward off tough opposition as they held their ground and proved to their rivals they are wearing the hearts of the champion.

Last Sunday, they escaped with a 92-88 win over the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars, who played excellent ballgame for nearly 40 minutes but the Lancers stole the game in the dying seconds.

The biggest scare by UV came at the hands of last year's finals rival University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters, who just needed one final shot in the last few seconds to make a repeat of their 75-68 win last year but without any pressure, they showed the stuff the champions are made of and won, 74-72.

Now on a 5-0 rampage, the Lancers could go for a 6-0 sweep tonight against the Panthers whom they demolished twice last year.

Banking on height as their main weapon and quickness, the Lancers could not play complacent against the Panthers, who now placed second overall with a 3-1 win-loss record.

It is expected that when Rino Berame is denied an entry pass into the paint, the Lancers would go to their shooters in the likes of Morsie Akad, Jayford Rodriguez and Jaysar Esperat.

Their point guards were killing the Jaguars last Sunday and therefore, they are also expected to do the same, making most of the talents of Von Harry Lanete, who ignited the come-from-behind victory, Chris Victor Diputado, Frangel Omolon and Ricthum Dennison.

The Panthers' never-ending hustle in transition and a formidable fastbreaks can also do magic for coach Raul Latonio Sr. which he did in their 82-77 win over the Jaguars last August 6.

They maybe undermanned but the Panthers did not lack grit and courage.

Playing without Arletroy Mercader, who is now with the USC Warriors, Glenn Pendang and Elvis Labares who already graduated, the Panthers took in prized center Clefford Maguate to back up Randy Colonia. They can also rely on gunners like Moncrief Rogado, Dominic Ceniza and Jason Bartolabac and hopefully get scoring support from their rookies including Henry Mancera, the hero in their Jaguar's victory, Jordan Bardilas, Jeffrey Moriles, Ellison Rivera and Rodel Quinao.

In the secondary match, the Baby Lancers who swept the Wildkittens in last year's finals after posintg a 1-1 tie in the eliminations, hope to improve their 3-2 win-loss record to finish either at second or third place overall before the semifinals starts.

The Lancers and the Baby Laners have already scored double victory in two occasions this season- first last July 23 and again last August 12.

Meanwhile, CESAFI commissioner Felix O. Tiukinhoy Jr. announced that they have revised the format of the semifinals from the twice-to-beat advantage for the top two teams to a best-of-three series between the number one team against the number four and the no. 2 against the no. 3 teams.

Cesafi board blocks semis switch plan
By Jaime A. FriasII
Sun.Star Correspondent

The board members of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) junked last Wednesday the suggestion to change the semifinal format of the basketball games.

"It was a simple discussion, though. There were pros and cons, but the board members decided that the old format must be followed," Cesafi commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy told Sun.Star Cebu.

Tiukinhoy announced this during the weekend that the semifinals format should be revised. Instead of the top two teams in the highschool and college men's divisions having twice-to-beat advantages, semifinalists will go for best-of-three matches.
Head coach Raul Latonio Sr. of the University of Southern Philippines (USP) Panthers disagreed with the commissioner's proposal to revise the old format when the elimination round is almost done.

Start, not end

"We don't agree with that, especially when it's in the middle of the tournament. Revisions should be done before the opening of the tournament," Latonio said, following the Panthers' 65-80 loss to the University of Visayas Green Lancers, which completed all their six outings with a 6-0 win-loss card in the elimination round.

The Panthers are now toting a 3-2 win-loss card and is in second place, while the University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars and the University of San Carlos Warriors, which upset the University of Cebu Webmasters last Saturday, are tied at the third and fourth places with 2-2 win-loss slates.

Old format

“Of course we go for the old format. If we win against CIT this Saturday and land number two, we will enjoy a twice-to-beat advantage in the semis while we can beat our foe in the semis once," Latonio said.

Latonio said USP will still write an appeal not to push through with the sudden revisions of the semifinal format, despite the board’s decision.

In case it ties at 4-2 with the winner of the Warriors and the Jaguars game next week, the Panthers will take the second spot outright through the winner-over-the-other rule.

Since the board has come up to their decision, Tiukinhoy said the board members might as well consider the idea next year.

USJ-R, USC win
By Gabby G. Malagar
The Freeman 08/20/2006

The University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars fended off a fierce challenge by the Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT) Wildcats to hack out a 80-63 win and forge a three-way logjam at third in the 6th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event last night at the Cebu Coliseum.

Games today

1 pm USC vs. USJR (Jrs.)
2:30 pm CIT vs. Don Bosco (Jrs)
4 pm UC vs. Don Bosco (Srs)
5:30 pm USP vs. CIT (Srs)

The Jaguars, USC Warriors and USP Panthers are currently tied with similar 3-2 win-loss records and the three are still jockeying for the second spot after the elimination. The Warriors claimed their third win in five starts at the expense of Don Bosco College, 120-92.

In the secondary matches, the USP Baby Panthers tamed the USJ-R Baby Jaguars, 107-94, while the UC Junior Webmasters defeated Don Bosco, 72-60, as they both remained unbeaten in four games. They will dispute the top spot in a prestige game on Monday, a holiday being the death anniversary of the late Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr.

Recovering from a lackluster first half where they trailed by 11 points, 28-39, the Wildcats regrouped to pull within four points, 47-51, on Ryan Montealto's 3-point play late in the third period. Instead of completing what would have been a great comeback, Montealto was whistled for an unsportsmanlike foul with 24.7 seconds left in the third period. That gave the Jaguars a four-point swing ending the period at 55-49.

The Wildcats nrever recovered from there as the Jaguars launched a furious endgame assault to come up with a 17-point rout. Luther Luke Justiniani topscored for the Jaguars with 17 points, while Ariel Lozano, a veteran in many commercial leagues, followed with 13 points.

The Wildcats, who were blowing hot and cold, was led by Sherwin Abobo with 17 points, while Marvin Abapo and Jerry Lumongsod had 11 and 10 points, respectively.

Earlier, five Warriors scored in double figures led by Niño Ramirez with 16 points.

Celso Colegado had 28 points, but his explosive night went for naught at the debuting Don Bosco lurther languished at the cellar without win in eight games.

This is the first time I saw San Carlos Played in The Finals... It's a history for our school... What makes me proud of them is, after practice.. they eat together.. and they go to their respective classes.. they're well disciplined on and off the court... I had the chance to practice with them for my diet and they're really helping me... I'm really very proud to be a Carolinian... for me.. it's the best school in Cebu I can compare San Carlos to other Universities in Manila.. USC baby!!! hahahaha.. too bad 2nd place.. next year!!!!
