Â* Â* Â*THE SIXTH season of the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities will open this Saturday (July 22) at the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay City starting at 8:00AM.

Â* Â* Â*There will be 10 teams this year, led by five-time NAASCU champion University of Manila Hawks and last year's runner-up STI College Olympians.Â* The league welcomes the San Sebastian College-Recoletos of Cavite Baycats as its tenth member.Â* The complete list of participating schools are:


AMA Computer University-Quezon City
Centro Escolar University-Manila
Holy Angel University
New Era University
Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasay
Saint Clare College-Caloocan
San Sebastian College-Recoletos of Cavite
STI College
University of Makati
University of Manila

Â* Â* Â*No less than the champion Hawks of Coach Loreto Tolentino Sr. take on the Olympians of Coach Victor Ycasiano in the opening game at 10:00AM in a rematch of last year's finals won by the Hawks via a 2-0 sweep, maintaining their record as the only champion the NAASCU has known since its birth in 2001-2002.Â* However, 2005-2006 proved to be different as the Hawks lost for the very first and only time in NAASCU history.Â* Saint Clare earned the distinction of inflicting the Hawks' lone loss thanks to a buzzer-beating half-court heave during the elimination round.Â* The Hawks swept their remaining games en route to the crown.

Â* Â* Â*Will the Hawks continue their rampage and take home a sixth NAASCU trophy?Â* The other nine schools have something to say about that!

Tournament Format:

- 10 teams play a single-round elimination phase for nine games each;

- Top six teams advance to the quarterfinals carrying over their win-loss records and play another single round robin for five more games each;

- Top four teams advance to the crossover semifinals with the two higher seeds enjoying a twice-to-beat advantage;

- Semifinal winners advance to the best-of-three NAASCU Finals.

JUN PEREZ HIT A LAYUP AT THE buzzer to lift STI to a 60-58 upset of five-time defending champion University of Manila yesterday at the start of the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities at the Cuneta Astrodome.

The 5-foot-9 guard’s game-clinching shot came after the Hawks’ Pol Santiago hit a three-pointer to tie the game at 58 with just 10 seconds remaining.

The Hawks established a dynasty five years ago and suffered their second loss in that span. St. Clare snapped an 82-game run by UM last year.

Perez topscored with 13 points while Dexter Micutuan added 11 for STI, which finished second to the Hawks last year.

Venancio Galindez and Roy David combined for 29 points as Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasay edged last year’s third-placer Centro Escolar University, 77-72, in the second game.

The league opened with a ceremony yesterday with Naascu president Dr. Ernest Jay Adalem promising an exciting, unpredictable tourney.

The scores:

First Game

watch out for New Era's Jeffrey de Guzman!!


The first time i set foot in the NAASCU he was already there playing as one of their main gunners. I believe he is the brother of former Adamson (tama ba) guard Jonathan De Guzman. He is a gifted shooter and prolific scorer and i believe is mainly the reason why New Era advanced to the Final Four and winning over a favored ST. Clare College last year to win third place.

In his first game against University of Makati he scored 30 points. Yesterday they beat PLP and he scored 36 points!
Maybe his middle name is "SCORER" hehehe. One of the great gems waiting to crack a PBL line up from the NAASCU.
Good luck Hunters.

thanks for the comment. :) :) i really feel bad how the NAASCU and specifically New Era receive little to no support or hype at all. NEU, an Iglesia ni Cristo backed school, gives absoltuely no support for their sporting acitivities. Imagine, only p100 allowance per player for every game! Compared to the alleged p8000 monthly some UAAP schools allocate for their players. Remember these are athletes and that amount wouldnt even account for a full meal. In fact, they arent even scholars. Being a basketball fan since i can remember, i am capable already of differentiating the demons from the lemons, and it is truly disgusting to see how hyped some players are, such as Ateneo's Tiu, Baraccoso, etc...in fact, ive personally seen de Guzman play in a village summer league, wherein he was playing against a team featuring Cardona and Yeo. And he more than held his own against them to the delight of the crowd. Not to say he is actually better than those 2, because cardona and yeo are definitely PBA material. But ill bet my money on him anytime against anyone on an overhyped and way ovverated ateneo 2nd five. Sama na din natin DLSU especailly the slow footed TY t@ng.

Dear joelex, your resentment towards the players you have mentioned is truly understandable. Tiu, Baracosso and t@ng can stop playing basketball right this very minute and it wouldn’t significantly affect the economics of their future. Cardona is now playing in the PBA and will soon be joined by Yeo. On the other hand, De Guzman is toiling away as a player of what you characterize as an unsupportive school in a relatively young league that provides not as much media exposure as the UAAP or the NCAA. Your expert eye has extrapolated his talent and the pathetic compensation he receives against all those you have cited and their alleged generous benefits and you cannot help but express your revulsion at what you perceive as a tragic inequity. Kudos to you, my friend. You may have just finally revealed the best kept secret in Philippine amateur basketball. I think all those coaches and scouts who have overlooked or underestimated De Guzman all these years will now take notice and, hopefully, just hopefully, he will finally get a bigger allowance per game.

This is the match up that all people in NAASCU has been waiting for, the so called Cyber wars!
STI College OLympians vs. AMA Computer University Titans. It is the new rivalry in Philippine Amateur Basketball.
Last year STI made it to the finals in its second year, AMACU on the other hand has yet to
advance in the final four of the league. Because of that AMA made a major facelift this year to be
able to have a strong team. Most notable it their signing of Coach Boni Garcia and the recruitment
of Chito Jaime. Just a while ago they brought down powerhouse University of Manila. This means
that their team is for real and should not be taken for granted.

Watch out for the cyber wars, Saturday, July 29, 2006 at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum at 2:30 pm.
Who knows you might be seeing the birth of new rivalry and a peek of the finals, the Olympians vs. the Titans another war of the ages........that is if the gods are willing.

well, de guzman is one of the best point guards in college right now. very underrated. maybe the only thing that he lacks is the height which is very important in the game of basketball. he can score from beyond the arc, drive and dish and what i really like about de guzman is that he can control the pace of the game whether it be a fast game or a slow game. i once saw him scored more than 40 points, i think 48, and multiple times carried his team to win games. maybe all he lacks is media exposure. i hope de guzman gets a shot in the PBL.

Good Luck to De guzman.

Bolocon topscored for the Cavite-based Baycats with 30 points.

We had a game after the dunk contest so we fielded in a player who we believe will not get enough minutes during the succeeding game. Unfortunately he muffed all his dunks. Well maybe next year. I think we have two guys who can rival what Macasaet and Dayrit did in the slam competition. But then again i just havent seen them in a competition. SIguro next year. I commend Jun Macasaet for winning, he was really my bet and i am happy he won.

THE TEAM THAT owns the longest winning streak in the league finally broke its longest losing run in the young National Athletics Association of Schools Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) season.

University of Manila finally found the missing pieces of the puzzle and nailed its first victory after three losses by beating Holy Angel University, 74-53, yesterday at the UM Gym.

The Hawks, who hold the record for consecutive victories with 86, relied on old-timers Pol Santiago, Onofre Napiza and Alein Maliksi who responded with double-digit performances.

After losing last year’s MVP Ryan Regalado and slotman Gener Bernados, the five-time champion Hawks played listlessly and bowed to newcomer San Sebastian-Cavite, last year’s runner-up STI College and AMA Computer College.

“The competition is getting tough and it’s good for the league,” said veteran UM coach Ato Tolentino.

Santiago stepped up by topscoring with 19 points, while Napiza and Maliksi had 15 and 12 points, respectively, for the Hawks.

In the first game, the Hawklets routed the Baby Flyers, 85-44, to remain unbeaten after three games. HAU took its fourth loss in as many games.

The scores:
First Game (Jrs)
UM 85 -- Zaplan 18, Bilono 10, Rano 7, Hernandez 7, Sadsad 7, Rabalo 7, Bayo 7, Lacap 6, Calata 4, Mohammad 4, Loreto 3, Soliman 2, Malinao 2, Paguio 2, Mulawin 0, Fernol 0.

AMA Computer restored the balance of power in the National Athletics Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities men’s basketball with an 89-82 win over erstwhile unbeaten San Sebastian College-Cavite yesterday at the New Era Gym.

Chito Jaime topscored with 24 points to lead the Titans to their fifth win in seven games, tying idle Centro Escolar University at third place behind their victims and STI, which drubbed Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Pasay, 91-71, at the UM gym.

Jaime was ably backed by Bong Abac and Jun Gabica, who added 18 and 10 points, respectively, as the aggressive Titans stunned the Bay Cats.

One thing going against the Bay Cats was the injury sustained by center PJ Villaber in the first quarter. The 6-foot-5 Villaber hurt his knees and his absence left a big void in the SSC-Cavite rotation.

The Bay Cats took the league by a storm, zooming to a 7-0 start, reminiscent of University of Manila’s dominance the past five seasons.

But pressure caught up on them despite getting the usual numbers from go-to guys Jerome Cenita who unloaded 21 points and Glen Bolocon who added 18 markers.

The Olympians had an easy time climbing to solo second place with a 6-2 slate through Perez’s 20-point production. Haddi Porto, Kristian San Luis and Dexter Micutuan contributed 14, 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Prince Carino and JR Casulla joined hand to make 29 points but their work failed to save the Eagles from falling to 3-5.

SLOWLY but surely, University of Manila is getting its groove back.

The five-time defending champion showed signs of recovery after a rough start, scoring a 64-61 come-from-behind victory over Centro Escolar yesterday to gain foothold in the second round of the National Athletics Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities.

Finally showing the pride and bearing of the team that held the longest winning streak in collegiate basketball history, the Hawks fought hardest in the endgame with old reliables Pol Santiago and Onofre Napiza striking with game-winning baskets at the UM Gym.

With the Scorpions holding a 61-60 edge, Santiago first escaped with a jumper with just 47 seconds left to gain the upperhand. The Hawks put up one defensive stop in the next play and went to the driving Napiza to complete the scoring with 27.5 seconds to go.

CEU, last year’s runner-up, made one last stand but could not execute as UM employed full-court presses that used up the clock.

It was the Hawks’ fifth win in nine games, improving their chances of making the six-team second round following a horrible 0-3 start.

The Scorpions managed to stay among the top half of the standings with a 5-3 record, behind San Sebastian-Cavite (7-1), STI (6-2) and AMACU (5-2).

The scores:

UM 64 – Santiago 24, Napiza 15, Bonus 11, Maliksi 7, Delostrinos 6, Advincula 1, Gobis 0, Estacio 0, Hupana 0, Facun 0, Ocampo 0, Operana 0.

TOP MVP contender Chito Jaime played worthy of his stature yesterday, drilling in 20 points as AMA Computer downed New Era, 78-67, to finish its elimination assignment at second place in the National Athletics Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities basketball tournament at the UM Gym.

The 6-foot-5 Jaime, who plays small forward despite his height, showed why he is the pacesetter for top individual honors, dominating the game and almost single-handedly steering the Titans to their seventh win in nine games.

It was a big follow-up to Amacu's upset of league-leader San Sebastian College-Cavite, which remained on top of the standings with an 8-1 record.

Also making it to the next round are STI (7-2), UM (5-4), Centro Escolar University (5-4) and New Era University (4-5).

The six qualifiers will play a single round in the second round which starts this weekend to determine which four teams will make the semifinals.

Providing help for the Titans was 5-foot-11 Bong Abac who made 18 points. Patrick Mercado and Josel Suarez contributed 10 points each.

The Hunters had a stirring first quarter, holding the Titans at bay with a running game anchored on Mel Mabigat and Joseph Perlas.

But the Titans soon picked up speed in the next quarters, while tightening their defense to take control.

Mabigat finished with 19 points, while Perlas had 11 for the Hunters who managed to make the next round despite a 4-5 slate.

This is confirmed and according to insiders, SSC-Cavite will not be playing their remaining games and they would be withdrawing from the league.Unfortunate event, but I think the referees should also be reminded of because Coach Egay would not be reacting like that if the referees controlled the game.

Coming off a three-game absence due to nose injury, De Guzman ignited that late wind-up by banging a three-pointer in the last 18 seconds to give the Hunters a 78-76 lead which stayed.

LEAGUE-LEADER San Sebastian-Cavite faces outright expulsion as the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) convenes its board today to discuss the team’s recent actions.

The Bay Cats, who dominated the league’s first round of eliminations right in their first season, defaulted their first five games in the second in “protest” against the one-year ban imposed on coach Egay Macaraya for fighting on the court.

NAASCU president Dr. Ernest Jay Adalem of St. Clare College said they had invited SSC-Cavite officials to today’s meeting to explain why the Baby Cats failed to show up for their recent games.

“We haven’t received any communication from them, not even a formal letter after we imposed the suspension on coach Macaraya,” Adalem told the Inquirer. “If they are contesting our decision... they should inform us through a letter so we can respond accordingly.’’

But SSC-Cavite officials maintained that they already forwarded a letter pleading for a “lesser penalty” on Macaraya, who was penalized for punching AMA Computer University player Jun Gabica during their game on Aug. 18 at the New Era University gym.

Adalem said Macaraya’s action “reflected badly on the league as well as on their school.”

Macaraya didn’t explain his side in the punching incident but asked the league for permission to be allowed into game venues.

SSC-C president Fr. Emil Jaruda said they didn’t intend to lose all their games by default.

ALL’S WELL that ends well in the young and vibrant National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU).

This developed after the league agreed to let San Sebastian College-Cavite to stay despite infractions it had committed against the league, mainly its decision to default its five games in the second round, according to NAASCU president Dr. Ernest Jay Adalem.

In exchange, SSC-Cavite president Fr. Emil Jaruda agreed to pay P12,000 in penalties for forfeiting five games in the seniors and one game in the juniors division.

The Bay Cats, first placers in the first round, will also play in the second round, holding an 8-6 record at fourth place.

“The good thing that happened here is that everybody was thinking about the good of the league,” said Adalem, who met for three hours with Jaruda and other NAASCU board members.

Jaruda, said Adalem, also offered apologies on behalf of the Bay Cats, who will lose head coach Egay Macaraya for the rest of the season.

Macaraya was slapped the suspension for punching AMA Computer University’s Jun Gabica during their game at the New Era University gym.

That decision sparked the rift between the school and the league and started SSC-Cavite’s long absence from the games.

EDDIE CAMACHO and Jeric Magno combined for 32 points as Centro Escolar University upset league-leader STI College, 68-64, at the University of Manila gym yesterday to complete the Final Four cast of the National Athletics Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) basketball tournament.

Camacho hit 17 points, while Magno added 15 for the Scorpions, who dictated the pace from the start. They joined early qualifiers STI, AMA Computer University and New Era University in the semifinals.

CEU and first-round leader San Sebastian College-Cavite actually wound up with similar 8-6 cards, but the Scorpions clinched the last semifinal slot by virtue of a second-round win over the Bay Cats, who defaulted five games in the second stage of eliminations.

The STI Olympians, who finished the eliminations with an 11-3 card, appeared to be saving their energy for the Final Four which starts tomorrow at the Rizal Coliseum.

They will again face the Scorpions, but this time holding a twice-to-beat advantage.

AMA will take on New Era with the Titans enjoying the twice-to-beat incentive as the No. 2 team in the eliminations.

The Titans earlier downed defending champion University of Manila, 76-71.

Haddi Porto starred with 22 points, nine rebounds and three assists as the STI Olympians, enjoying a twice-to-beat incentive, took the sting out of the Scorpions with their fast game.

AMA COMPUTER University tries to finally nail the second championship berth although New Era University will be clinging on the momentum it gained the last time they met as they tangle again today in the Final Four of the NAASCU basketball tournament at the Rizal Coliseum.

The Hunters negated the Titans’ twice-to-beat edge with an 83-78 decision last weekend, and could make it two straight in the 1 p.m. lone game.

The winner moves up against STI College in the best-of-three title series which starts tomorrow.

Jeff de Guzman and Joseph Perlas spearheaded New Era’s running game that derailed AMA’s march to the finals. De Guzman fired 22 points, while Perlas added 19 to forge the rubber match.

The Olympians didn’t need to use its twice-to-beat incentive when they disposed of the Centro Escolar Scorpions, 59-53, also last weekend.

The champion will become the first squad to succeed after the fall of the University of Manila dynasty.

The UM Hawks, who suffered heavy losses with the graduation of their key players, ended sixth in the eliminations after ruling the league for six straight years. -- Marc Anthony Reyes

GAME TOMORROW (Rizal Coliseum)
3 p.m. -- STI vs AMACU (Finals: Game 1)

CHITO JAIME and Patrick Mercado led a daring assault in the fourth quarter as AMA Computer University repulsed New Era University, 75-70, yesterday to seize the last finals berth in the National Athletics Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities basketball tournament at the Rizal Coliseum.

Jaime and Mercado teamed up with Jun Gabica to score 22 of the team’s 26 last-quarter output as AMACU finally clinched the slot it missed the first time around Saturday, when New Era sent the Final Four duel to a rubber match.

It will thus be a “Computer War” when AMACU takes on rival school STI College in the best-of-three championship series starting tomorrow.

The Olympians, last year’s runners-up, easily took the first finals slot by beating Centro Escolar University, 59-53, last Saturday.

It is the first title series minus University of Manila, which established a five-year dynasty.

The scores:
AMACU 75 -- Jaime 21, Mercado 15, Gabica 9, Galvez 8, Abac 6, Franco 5, Vergara 4, Dela Peña 4, Galang 2, Suarez 1, Zablan 0, De Guzman 0.
NEW ERA 70 -- Perlas 22, De Guzman 16, Tengco 8, Ibay 7, Naguit 5, Alaster 4, lapid 3, Biollones 3, Mabigat 2, Maynes 0.
Quarters: 21-12, 36-33, 49-49, 75-70

AMA's Chito Jaime is already a PBL Rookie Free Agent as he was already drafted in 2005 as the seventh overall pick by ICTSI but was not signed up after the team decided to withdraw at the last minute. That was the same draft that saw Fil-Am Joe Devance get selected as the top pick by Toyota-Otis.

Jaime earlier played for Ateneo in the 2005 Father Martin Summer League after his former school, Colegio de San Lorenzo, disbanded their varsity at the close of SY 2004-2005. Good thing he did not pursue his PBL dream or else that would have rendered him ineligible for this year's NAASCU wars.
