PIDO JARENCIO of newly crowned UAAP champion University of Santo Tomas Tigers will be honored as Coach of the Year by the UAAP Press Corps when it holds its own awarding ceremony next week.

Jarencio, who was recently tapped as San Miguel Beer’s assistant coach in the Philippine Basketball Association, impressively steered the Tigers to the basketball championship on his debut season.

The overachieving Tigers stunned the favored Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles in the best-of-three Finals series to end a 10-year title drought.

Other UST standouts who will be recognized include Finals Most Valuable Player Jojo Duncil as Mr. Clutch, Jervy Cruz as Defensive Player of the Year and Dylan Ababou as Sixth Man.

Ateneo’s top gunner JC Intal will pick up the Player of the Year plum, while season MVP Ken Bono of the Adamson University Falcons will be honored as Scoring Champion.

Other major awardees include University of the Philippines’ Marvin Cruz as Most Improved and Ateneo’s Chris Tiu as Comeback Player.

Marcy Arellano of the University of the East will receive the Energy Player award while Jeff Chan of Far Eastern University will get the Sportsmanship citation.

The awarding rites, revived after a four-year hiatus, will honor other collegiate cagers who displayed outstanding skills and leadership this season. Several team and school officials will also be given special recognition. Jasmine W. Payo

Pido, brightest of UAAP 69th season feted

The Philippine Star 10/17/2006

The UAAP Press Corps yesterday honored the top achievers of Season 69 headed by Coach of the Year Pido Jarencio of the triumphant Santo Tomas in simple rites at the Pantalan Restaurant.

Like Jarencio, managers Clarence Aytona, Rudy Yu and Timmy Chong and school officials Felicitas Francisco and Fr. Ermito de Sagon, OP, were also feted along with host University of the East, which was represented by Bren Perez.

"I wish to thank the school’s officials, players, coaching staff, students, alumni and priests for their support, without them I wouldn’t have gone this far," said Jarencio. He also thanked his dad, Benedicto, who attended the affair.

Ateneo’s JC Intal was named Player of the Year while Adamson’s Ken Bono and UST’s Jojo Duncil the Scoring Champion and Mr. Clutch, respectively, in the event backed by City of Manila, Masco, PSC chair Butch Ramirez, San Miguel, Burlington and Accel.

Other awardees were UST’s Jervy Cruz (Defensive Player) and Dylan Ababou (Sixth Man), FEU’s Jeff Chan (Sportsmanship), Ateneo’s Chris Tiu (Comeback Player), UP’s Marvin Cruz (Most Improved) and UE’s Marcy Arellano (Energy Player).

Presidential adviser for youth sports Ali Atienza of Masco and former UE Warrior, ex-PBA star and Teletech coach Jerry Codiñera graced the awards rites.

A special senior award were also given to Intal and teammates Macky Escalona and Doug Kramer, UE’s Rob Labagala, NU’s Dave Catamora and Jason Malcontento, UST’s Allan Evangelista and FEU’s Francis Barcellano.

The group also honored former Tiger John Lee Apil a posthumous award for his heroism. The lefty guard passed away after he saved two kids from being electrocuted early this year in hometown Cagayan Valley.

Jarencio accepts UAAP coaching award
www.mb.com.ph


IN A fleeting moment, Alfredo “Pido” Jarencio thought he won the jackpot in a lottery.

For all his sacrifices and hardships, Jarencio, the brave, creative and sometimes combative coach of the University of Santo Tomas Tigers, was finally rewarded with the prize every coach yearned to receive – the Coach of the Year award.

Wearing only a T-Shirt with the word "Champion" emblazoned on it, the crowd rose to its feet as the former UST top gunner – smiling proudly – received his trophy during the UAAP Press Corps Awards yesterday at the Pantalan Restaurant in Manila.

"I thank our priests, officials, players, coaching staff, students and alumni for their support, without them I wouldn’t have gone this far," said Jarencio.

The coronation of Jarencio as the league’s No. 1 coach, became more nostalgic as his father, Benedicto, came to toast him for a job well done.

Though regarded as one of the finest players to emerge in the 80s, Jarencio was never a champion as a player.

The scribes’ group also hailed the efforts of UST managers Clarence Aytona, Rudy Yu and Timmy Chong and school officials, led by Felicitas Francisco and Fr. Ermito de Sagon. Host University of the East was likewise recognized by the group for its impressive hosting of the event which resulted to a blockbuster finals series.

Ateneo’s JC Intal was named Player of the Year while Adamson’s Ken Bono and UST’s Jojo Duncil the Scoring Champion and Mr. Clutch, respectively.

Other awardees were UST’s Jervy Cruz (Defensive Player) and Dylan Ababou (Sixth Man), FEU’s Jeff Chan (Sportsmanship), Ateneo’s Chris Tiu (Comeback Player), UP’s Marvin Cruz (Most Improved) and UE’s Marcy Arellano (Energy Player).

Guest speaker Presidential adviser for youth sports Ali Atienza and former UE Warrior and Teletech coach Jerry Codinera gave inspirational messages.

A special senior award were also given to Intal and teammates Macky Escalona and Doug Kramer, UE’s Rob Labagala, NU’s Dave Catamora and Jason Malcontento, UST’s Allan Evangelista and FEU’s Francis Barcellano.

The group also honored former Tiger John Lee Apil a posthumous award for his heroism. The lefty guard passed away after he saved two kids from being electrocuted early this year in hometown Cagayan Valley.

Ang pintas sa NCAA ay walang deliberation, purely statistical. Hindi raw nabibigyan halaga yung tinatawag na "intangibles".

Pero kung magkakaroon rin lang naman ng palitan ng pabor...mas mabuti pa nga talaga ang sistema sa NCAA.

In a "commercialized" league, the intangibles will work in favor of the "glamour" schools and "glamour" players. Walang laban diyan yung mga katulad ni Asoro, Yong, Gerilla, Espiritu, etc.

In that kind of setting, the "intangibles" would invariably refer to anything that is popular and glamorous.

Maybe that is the reason why the NCAA decided to rely purely on statistical points, i.e., the cold and hard facts. Ang hindi naman maganda dito ay pwedeng maging MVP ang isang player na naglalaro sa isang kulelat na team, e.g., Jay Sagad. Ang sagot dito, kung ako ang tatanungin, ay dapat isama sa bilangan ng statistical points ang mga laro sa Final Four. Sa ganitong paraan, mas malaki ang pagasa ng mga players na nadala ang team nila sa final four.

Any subjective inputs thrown in the equation tends to render the equation questionable in terms of merit. It is likewise unpalatable to have statistical bases that fall within a certain cutoff point instead of considering the season in its entirety as the equation becomes lacking or insufficient and becomes likewise erroneous. That is why the UAAP has the right idea on time frame (the whole season), but the NCAA has the right basis (statistical points). Therefore kelangan lang ay gawing objective ang UAAP evaluation, at i-extend sa playoffs ang NCAA statistical basis. And that will result in* more agreeable results for all.

If the cold and hard facts that the statistics presents are indisputable.

If the Jay Sagad case at the NCAA resulted in an "anomaly".

If "subjectivity" cannot be avoided, as in the case of the UAAP.

Paano ngayon yan?

First, let us agree that there be separate awards for the "regular season" and "playoff" games.
* * *
For the "regular season" awards, let it be purely statistical with modification. No deliberation, no voting. This way, players with poor PR or without "support groups" to hype their performances, or from schools considered unglamorous but are winning, have equal chances of winning an award.

Modification would come by way of giving "bonus statistical points" to players who were fielded by the winning team in a game. This would avoid a repetition of the Jay Sagad MVP award.

For the playoff awards, considering that this is limited to no more than 5 games per team, the games maybe be just too few to make the stats credible as sole criteria. So, votation or deliberation may be made part of the process. Kahit 50/50, stat/votes, okay na siguro.

There are only two major collegiate leagues. Can the two leagues harmonize their existing systems which can be used as the national standard.

Why the parochial mentality? Does it have anything to do with "commercial value", a difference in business model?

Sir Anthony, correct me if I'm wrong but I think this has always been done in previous years in the UAAP with the league and its press corps giving out seperate awards. And the awards usually contradict one another since it gives out its MVP trophy to the one who came short of winning it.

I don't mean to razz on the reporters' choices especially since some Ateneo players were included therein, but if the method of selection is highly subjective (because the reporters themselves decide) and/or flawed (i.e., all the "sipsip" machinations of players or their handlers) as so many on this thread have said, then that's too bad...but so what? It's not the official league award.

If the UAAP reporters want to give out their own awards because it makes them happy, that's fine with me.

And if a player or hs handler/manager/whoever will go to such lengths in order to get an award that I honestly think still bears less weight with pro scouts and coaches than the official UAAP awards, then bahala sila sa mga batman nila :P
