Ateneo vs La Salle stats show differing strengths
mb.com.ph





STATISTICS IN their respective opening games in the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup may not give an indication on where Ateneo versus De La Salle on Sunday at the PhilSports Arena is headed.


But the numbers could provide a sample of there they stand right now in the tourney backed by Gerry’s Grill, Accel, Bayo, FilPride-USA 88, Pepsi, Globe Telecommunications, Flying V Bio-Diesel, Millennium Plans, Franz Burger and RJ100.

Ateneo lost its opener 59-56 to the San Beda Red Lions in a tightly-fought game, while La Salle stunned Letran in overtime, 78-71.

Ateneo shot 50 percent from within the arc versus the 32 percent of La Salle.

A big source of the Eagles’ shots came from the inside courtesy of Ford Arao and Martin Quimson. La Salle didn’t fare too weak from 2-point territory, with PeeJay Barua (4-of-6) as its only consistent gunner.

In 3-point conversion, the Green Archers shot 38 percent, with Bader Malabes draining 5 of 6. The Eagles could only afford a measly 20 percent from beyond the arc.

In rebounds, both teams are even-steven, with both sides collaring 22 apiece off both boards. Notable performers from both sides include Zion Latterre (10 rebs) and Arao (8) for the Eagles, and Rico Maierhoffer (10) for the Green Archers.

Ateneo has played in the just-concluded UAAP and is well revved up, with veterans Latterre, Jai Reyes, Ken Barracoso and Quimson leading the way.

Expected to join them against La Salle are stars JC Intal and Cris Tiu. La Salle, on the other hand, played tune-up tournaments that honed their skills.

Their resurrection will be powered by Rico Maierhoffer, JV Casio and Tyrone Tang.

WHAT WAS SORELY MISSED DURing the recent UAAP season gets to be highlighted today when traditional foes Ateneo and La Salle lock horns in the Fil-Oil-Flying V Homegrown Cup Invitational at the Philsports Arena.

The great rivalry of the Eagles and the Archers takes center stage at 4 p.m. with La Salle hoping to score a second straight win and sustain its spirited comeback after its forced absence in the UAAP this season due to a one-year suspension.

La Salle will be coming off a 78-71 victory over 2005 NCAA champion Letran Nov. 4, using a young lineup raring to make a statement.

Bahrain-raised Bader Malabes is the man to watch for the Archers. He fired five of six three-pointers, including a triple in overtime to give his team a 72-66 cushion with just a minute left in the game.

He will be backstopped by veterans TY Tang and JV Casio and Peejay Barua and Rico Maierhofer, who contributed 10 points for La Salle.

Ateneo dropped its opener to San Beda, 59-56, in a game where both teams played minus key players.

The Eagles, who lost to the UST Tigers in this year’s UAAP finals, will parade untested players Ford Arao, Martin Quimson, Zion Laterre and Jai Reyes.

The juniors and women’s teams of both school will also collide preceding the main game, while Jose Rizal and UP make their debut in the nightcap at 6 o’clock. Marc Anthony Reyes

Archers test Tigers in Homegrown Cup

www.mb.com.ph


EAGLES, WARRIORS, Falcons, Bulldogs, Tamaraws, even Fighting Maroons, may hold no terror for Growling Tigers.

But Archers – green, vengeful and hungry – are a different matter.

Having conquered the best that the UAAP cage wars had to offer this year, reigning champion University of Santo Tomas now takes on the team that was not around when the Tigers had their feast.

At the resumption of the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup, UST faces unbeaten leader La Salle at 12 noon today at the PhilSports Arena, with something more than a better win-loss record at stake.

The Green Archers had beaten the Letran Knights, 78-71, on opening day and taken the measure of arch-rival Ateneo, 69-58, Sunday.

A seat in the semifinals now beckons, plus a chance to show up the Tigers, 71-72 losers to the San Sebastian Stags in the inaugural of the competition backed by Gerry’s Grill, Accel Sports, Millennium Plans, UABS Car Rental Services, Pepsi, Globe, Elf Lubricants, Telecommunications, Franz Burger, RJ100, Filpride USA 88, Flying V Bio-Diesel and Nike.

Ticket for this game shall be available at all SM TicketNet outlets. Interested parties may call the TicketNet office at 913-4031.

UST will rely on main man Jojo Duncil (19 points) and Jervy Cruz who had 13 points and 11 rebounds against the Stags. Other Tigers on the loose are Anthony Espiritu, Japs Cuan and Allan Evangelista.

The Archers, on the other hand, will parade JV Casio, Rico Maierhoffer, Cholo Villanueva plus reliable rookies Simon David Atkins, Bader Malabes and Brian Ilad.

In other games, the Blue Eagles battle the University of the East Red Warriors at 2 p.m., needing a victory after two losses to stay alive. At 4, Far Eastern University tackles the San Beda Red Lions, while the SSC Stags collide with NCAA rival Letran at 6 p.m.

LA SALLE could even be more daunting once it gets back its real form.

Serving notice of their championship potential, the Green Archers subdued reigning UAAP champion University of Santo Tomas Tigers, 73-59, yesterday in the FilOil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup at the PhilSports Arena.

Pocholo Villanueva tallied 19 points while Rico Maierhofer added 11 points and 11 rebounds as the unbeaten Archers streaked to a third victory that virtually booked them a semifinal ticket.

“We’re still groping for form,” said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren. “It’s been almost a year since we played in this level of competition.”

San Beda’s NCAA champion Red Lions also played with less fire and bowed to Far Eastern’s Tamaraws, 67-62, in another game.

James Martinez fired 18 points and Mark Fampulme had 11 points and 13 rebounds as the debuting University of the East Warriors pulled off an 86-74 win over the Ateneo Blue Eagles. The Eagles absorbed their third consecutive defeat.

Three days after upending arch-rival Ateneo, La Salle took the measure of reigning UAAP champion University of Santo Tomas, dominating the second quarter en route to a 73-59 victory in the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup at the PhilSports Arena.

The Green Archers, led by the 19 points of Pocholo Villanueva, streaked to their third straight win, virtually booking a seat in the semifinals of the tournament backed by Gerry’s Grill, Accel Sports, Millennium Plans, UABS Car Rental Services, Pepsi, Globe Telecommunications, Franz Burger, RJ100, Filpride USA 88 and Nike.

The Growling Tigers absorbed their second straight loss.

In the other games, University of the East debuted with an 86-74 victory over Ateneo, sending the Blue Eagles crashing to their third consecutive loss, while Far Eastern University subdued San Beda College, 67-62.

Green Archers seek No. 4 vs Tamaraws

Last updated 01:57am (Mla time) 11/24/2006

Published on Page A28 of the November 24, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

THE DE LA SALLE University basketball team, still trying to feel its way back into the groove, shoots for a fourth straight win in the FilOil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup when it clashes with Far Eastern University today at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Game time is 4 p.m. with the Archers, playing in their first tournament after being suspended from the UAAP for a year, installed as the solid picks if only because of their sheer firepower.

“It’s still quite difficult,” said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren, when reminded of their 3-0 start.

“We’re not really in game shape yet. I’m also feeling my way again as a coach after a long absence. Just like a boxer, we’ve only been sparring.”

Rico Maierhoffer and JV Casio, who have been playing above expectations, are again expected to carry the load for La Salle.

The UAAP champion University of Santo Tomas Tigers, who will tackle the University of the Philippines Maroons at 2 p.m., remain winless in two games.

Last week, the Archers routed the Tigers, 73-59, despite the presence of UAAP Finals MVP Jojo Duncil and rookie standout Jervy Cruz in the UST rotation.

Similarly listless are the UAAP runner-up Ateneo Blue Eagles, who will try to arrest a three-game skid versus the San Sebastian College Stags at 6.

Kicking off another heavy day of competition is the game pitting University of the East against Jose Rizal University at 12 noon.

Paced by the streak-shooting James Martinez, the Warriors will gun for a second straight victory following an impressive 86-74 thumping of the Eagles last week. -- Jasmine W. Payo

La Salle guns for cage sweep

www.mb.com.ph


UNBEATEN DE La Salle guns for a sweep of the elimination round when it takes on Far Eastern University today in the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup at the PhilSports Arena.

The two UAAP powerhouse teams which dominated the league at seasons two decades apart, clash at 4 p.m.

Hot on the comeback trail after eligibility woes forced it out of the UAAP this year, La Salle can deliver an early statement to next year’s opponents that the Green-and-White will be the team to beat in 2007.

FEU, on the other hand, continues to search for the good, old days when Johnnny Abarrientos and Vic Pablo were the best guard-forward combination in college basketball and when the Tamaraws were stampeding over the field.

The Green Archers, undefeated in three starts, try to maintain an unblemished record while banking on statistical points leader Rico Maierhoffer, Brian Ilad and Bader Malabes.

FEU, on the other hand, surprised the Homegrown followers by defeating the San Beda Red Lions in their first outing.

Notables include veteran shooting guard Jonathan Fernandez and new comers Reil Cervantes and Andy Mark Barroca.

La Salle can clinch the first semifinal berth with a victory although FEU, in search of the glory years, can spring a surprise.

The 12 noon curtain-raiser pits dangerous Jose Rizal U against the University of the East. Both teams have 1-0 slates.

At 2 p.m., University of Santo Tomas takes on University of the Philippines while Ateneo battles San Sebastian at 6 p.m.

The tournament is supported by Flying V BioDiesel, Filpride USA 88, Franz Burger, Security Bank, RJ100, Millennium Plans, Globe Telecom, Pepsi, Gerry’s Grill, Accel Sports, Nike, and Filoil Portagas.

A SPATE of losses may have dampened the afterglow of their championship runs.

But the San Beda Lions and the Santo Tomas Tigers hope to return to their winning ways when they clash in the FilOil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup today at the Philsports Arena.

The NCAA champion Lions and UAAP kingpin Tigers collide at 4 p.m. in the main game of a heavy four-game bill.

Last Friday, the Tigers showed flashes of their old forms, bucking the absence of several key players to post a 66-48 triumph over the University of the Philippines.

New recruit Rum Perry Scott turned out to be the surprise package as UST clinched its first win despite missing Jojo Duncil, Anthony Espiritu, Dylan Ababou and June Cortez.

The Lions, who debuted with a win over Ateneo, will try to recover from a 67-62 setback versus the Far Eastern Tamaraws.

The Letran Knights and the Maroons will kick off the day’s schedule at noon, while the Jose Rizal Bombers and the San Sebastian Stags tangle at 2 p.m.

Led by James Martinez, the University of the East Warriors will shoot for their third straight win versus the Tamaraws.

FEU absorbed a 92-65 whipping from the La Salle Archers last Friday. Jasmine W. Payo

OTHER ABLE recruits stood up for a University of Santo Tomas roster that played without its team stars.

Team B cagers Hector Badua and Kasim Mirza presided in a fourth-quarter run that lifted the UST Tigers to a 65-64 triumph over the San Beda College Lions in the FilOil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup yesterday at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The Tigers clinched their second straight win for a 2-2 card despite losing the services of Jojo Duncil, Dylan Ababou, June Cortez and Anthony Espiritu, the vital cogs in their recent UAAP championship run.

“Since some of our Team A players would no longer be playing, our other players have been practicing hard,” said Tigers assistant coach Beaujing Acot. “Some of our Team A players have been busy in the PBL (Philippine Basketball League), but we’re adjusting now.”

Acot added that coach Pido Jarencio, also shuttling between the PBL and the Philippine Basketball Association, will be back in future games.

San Beda, the NCAA titlist which slipped to 1-2, also missed the services of PBL players Yousif Aljamal and Pong Escobal.

Earlier, the Letran College Knights overwhelmed the University of the Philippines Maroons, 74-48, for their second win in three games.

The Jose Rizal University Bombers also improved their record to 2-1 after rallying to an 89-81 triumph over the San Sebastian College Stags.

Bombers bombard Stags in Homegrown

The Philippine Star 11/27/2006

Jose Rizal University drew 23 points from JR Sena as it carved out an 89-81 come-from-behind victory over San Sebastian College yesterday in the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Cup at the Philsports Arena.

The win, the Heavy Bombers’ second in three games, enabled them to share Group A leadership with the Letran Knights, who clobbered the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, 74-48.

Jose Rizal trailed 10-22 after the first quarter and 38-51 at the half, bucking the disqualification on fouls of top playmaker Floyd Dedicatoria late in the third.

Dennis Daa had 16 points to lead the Knights, who could face the Heavy Bombers in the semifinal.

Late in the evening, reigning UAAP champion Santo Tomas U edged NCAA champion San Beda, 65-64 as Jervy Cruz poured 22 points.

Hector Badua drained back-to-back three-pointers late in the game to cushion a desperate Red Lions attack down the stretch.

Crucial matches in Homegrown Cup

www.abs-cbnnews.com


Four crucial games shall be played at the resumption of the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup Sunday at the Philsports Arena.

A win or a loss shall determine the chances of a team’s entry into the semifinal phase of the tournament.

In the 12 noon first game pitting University of the East and Santo Tomas U, a win by the Red Warriors will ensure them a place in the next round while the Tigers will have to wait for the results of other matches as they still have chance with a 2-3 record.

Should UST take the victory, a 3-2 record should provide it an inside track to the semis. UE would still be in the running, however.

The 2 p.m. second game featuring NCAA rivals San Beda and Letran would also be crucial.

A win by the Knights would give them a cushion with a 3-1 record, while the Lions would be eliminated with a 1-3 slate in their group.

On the other hand, a victory by the Red Lions would give them a slight chance (with a 2-2 record) assuming UE drops its next two assignments. One win by UE would automatically boot out the Red Lions.

In the 4 p.m. encounter, La Salle versus Jose Rizal is crucial only for the latter.

The Green Archers have secured their semifinal appearance via a 4-0 win-loss slate. The Heavy Bombers need a win badly though to give them a 3-1 record and strong chance.

The 6 p.m. game between Far Eastern and University of the Philippines is a must-win situation for the Tamaraws in the tournament supported by Gerry’s Grill, Franz Burger, RJ100, Security Bank, Millennium Plans, USA 88 Fuels and Lubes, Filoil Portagas, Flying V Bio-Diesel, Accel Sports, Elf Lubricants and Nike.

The 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. games shall be aired live over ABS-CBN Sports—Studio 23.

WITH THE LANKY pair of Cholo Villanueva and Rico Maierhoffer at the helm, the La Salle Green Archers completed a sweep of the elimination round with a 70-63 triumph over the Jose Rizal Bombers to claim a semifinal berth in the FilOil-Flying V Homegrown Invitational Cup yesterday at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The University of the East Warriors also secured a semifinal slot with a 91-68 drubbing of UAAP champion Santo Tomas Tigers.

Val Acuna and James Martinez combined for 25 points to lead the Warriors to a fourth straight win.

The Archers and the Warriors arranged a Group B semifinal showdown next week, but the two semifinal seats in Group A remained up for grabs.

San Beda’s NCAA champion Lions took advantage of the Letran Knights’ late-game miscues to forge a come-from-behind 77-76 victory.

But the Lions still dropped out of semifinal contention with the Warriors’ earlier triumph.

Both teams are sporting 2-2 cards.

The Knights face the undefeated University of the East Red Warriors at 2 p.m. while the Heavy Bombers meet NCAA champions San Beda Red Lions at 4 p.m.

FAR EASTERN University and Jose Rizal University came up with contrasting wins to complete the semifinals cast of the Fil-Oil Flying V Homegrown Cup last night at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The Tamaraws first hacked out a 71-68 win over San Sebastian College before the Heavy Bombers routed an undermanned San Beda College squad, 78-58, to make the semis.

They thus joined early Group A qualifiers De La Salle University and University of the East in the pivotal stage of the league that pits the country’s top collegiate teams.

The semifinals start on Dec. 13 with the Warriors taking on the Archers and the Heavies locking horns with the Tamaraws. The winners will collide in a winner-take-all finals on Dec. 18.

UE bested Letran College, 78-71, in the other game but it hardly made any effect on the semis roster.

Archers shoot down Warriors

Published on Page A27 of the December 14, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

LA SALLE STAYED ON TRACK for a smashing comeback even as Jose Rizal University broke free from its whipping boy mold as they defeated their respective foes last night to arrange a finals duel in the Fil-Oil Flying V Homegrown Cup at the Philsports Arena.

The Archers hardly broke a sweat in defeating University of the East, 76-67, to make the finals in this inaugural collegiate league which they hope would announced their grand comeback after getting sidelined by a one-year suspension from the UAAP.

The game also highlighted the bench battle between brothers Franz Pumaren of La Salle and Dindo Pumaren of University of the East.

Turned out the younger Pumaren still has a lot to learn from his multititled sibling.

The Archers leaned on Rico Maierhofer, Ty Tang and Bader Malabes to put the Warriors at bay, taking a 29-10 lead early in the second quarter and never looked back.

Maierhofer scored 13 points and grabbed seven rebounds plus three assists and three steals.

Earlier, Jayson Nocom sparked a second quarter rally as Jose Rizal University ditched Far Eastern, 80-64, to also make the finals.

La Salle Homegrown champ
Press Release


The De La Salle Green Archers are kings of the homegrown collegiate
world.

With all cylinders firing, the Green Archers overpowered the Jose Rizal
Heavy Bombers, 79-67, last night to capture the Filoil-Flying V Homegrown
Invitational Cup title at the packed Philsports Arena.

Tyrone Tang led La Salle with 22 points, while Rico Maierhofer added 15
and JV Casio 12 points.

The Bombers got 26 points from John Marion Wilson and 15 from James
Ryan Sena but little else from the rest of the team.

The Green Archers dominated the first half in opening a 47-35 lead.

They shot 14 of 24 from the field, hit but one of 11 free throws, and
had three 3-pointers while holding the Bombers tom 0-for-5 from beyond the arc.
Jose Rizal’s inability to launch its weapons or drop its bombs due to
La Salle’s perimeter defense was the story of the first 20 minutes.

The Homegrown Cup is supported by Gerry’s Grill, Franz Burger, RJ100,
Security Bank, Millennium Plans, USA 88 Fuels and Lubes, FILOIL Portagas, Flying
V Bio Diesel, Accel Sports, Elf Lubricants and Nike.

In the battle for third, Marnel Baracael unloaded 19 points and Ron
Ryan Cabagnot added 11 as Far Eastern University stunned University of the
East 72-63.

The Tamaraws trailed at the end of the middle two quarters but stampeded their
way to the finish, taming the Warriors with plenty to spare.

Hans Thiele led UE with 15 points, but was unable to do much, along with Jurel
Canizares and James Martinez, to stop FEU’s surge in the last 10 minutes.
