Ateneo and UP recruits and other newcomers for those two schools are being discussed already in their respective school forums, please check those out. Other schools are also talking about their own recruits.

I'll allow this thread to continue since people can still discuss where a recruit will be going without any slant towards a particular school. I'll just be editing the title a bit.

as for the UP side of things, what we can say so far is that three FEU-FERN Baby Tamaraws- Dexter Rosales, Anthony Paulino and Mark Lopez- and one Ateneo Blue Eaglet- Mike Gamboa- are now practicing with the UP Fighting Maroons and are slated to join the Maroons this coming UAAP season. :)

^correction. Mark Lopez has committed to UP but he is not practicing regularly yet. He still has some things to complete in FERN but FEU has already given its blessings for him to eventually join the Maroons.

Yes, but he will not have to establish residency. Kirk Long will graduate from Faith Academy and hence does not run afoul of the UAAP residency requirements.

The hype regarding Kirk Long is HUGE!!!

Is he really that good? What position/s does he play? Will he be able to make a major impact ala LA. Tenorio in his rookie year? Will he fill the void left by Intal, Kramer and Escalona? Will he be the messiah that will bring the Ateneo men's basketball program back to the promised land? What league is Faith Academy affiliated with and what are the stats of Kirk Long?

Kirk long is a muscular 6'1" who plays the 1-2 position. He has a quick first step and can slash and pop. He has good mid range and is quick on the break. However, he is young and still learning the black system. Within a few years he will be a force. He will be a good candidate for the rookie of the year as he would qualify easily. My two cents worth.

Technically, hanggat hindi pa enrolled ang bata sa UP, hindi pa sure shot. Ang masasabi ko lang, he has been religiously attending UP practices at the UP Gym, so religious that upon arriving from the US last Monday, he went straight from the airport to the UP Gym to attend practice. Ayan, nagka-cramps tuloy. :D

Let's just put it this way: it's probably safe to say that as of now, UP is his first choice. The Maroon coaching staff, on the other hand, has also shown great interest in having him play for the Maroon and Green next season. I personally don't want to jinx anything by saying that he's a sureshot, so I'll just say that Mike Gamboa and UP have expressed a mutual interest in each other. :)

AFAIK, and the Ateneo faithful can correct me if I'm wrong (but I don't think I am), Bacon has tried out for Ateneo and Ateneo only. And from what I've heard, he stands a good chance of making the team next season.

As for the booing, if the posts over a the BEN are any indication, I'd say the Ateneo fans will generally support Gamboa's decision, although of course I'm sure they'd love to see the kid suit up for the Blue Eagles. Without meaning to make this a backhanded compliment, the Ateneo-La Salle rivally is on a different plane altogether compared to the perceived Ateneo-UP rivalry. Over the years, madami na din kasing naging "hybrid" alumni, i.e., those who are products of both Katipunan schools.

re: Bacon Austria, akala ko ba puno ang Ateneo Team A ngayon? will there be any realistic chance that Leo Austria's son will make it into Ateneo Team A this coming UAAP season?

hmmmm... so far, wala akong nababasa dito about "hyped" rookie prospects Dave Marcelo and Jonathan Banal. ano na bang balita sa kanila?

BLUE HORSE
01-12-2007, 12:02 AM
There are only 3 open spots on varsity this coming season due to the graduation of Escalona, Kramer and Intal.* Players from team A and B are all trying to impress the coaches that they deserve a spot on varsity.* Having said that, coach Black can decide to demote current varsity players infavor of more deserving players.* We will know by the time the summer FMC tournament if this scenario has come to pass as Team A is usually the same team that is fielded during the UAAP season.

Please read other threads concerning the unknown recruits, do not limit yourself to the UP or Ateneo site.* There has been a lively exchange about the destination of certain recruits. I wouldn't call Banal a hyped prospect compared to others. Worse case scenario is for Banal to go to SBC and toil in their team B until there is an open spot for him on varsity. SBC team B is deep among the 4/5 position players.

Magandang chance yan kay Gamboa to play for UP. At least, puede na talaga mag-SG si Marvin na yun naman talaga yung desired position to play niya. Meron na siyang Gamboa na playmaker na puede magset up ng plays sa kanya. Based sa mga posts sa BEN, maganda improvement ni Bacon sa outside shooting niya, which means magiging malaking asset siya since mabilis ang adjustment niya from a front court guy to a wingman.

i don't think he'll be booed. baka palakpakan pa ng ateneo community si mike -- if and when he enters the court in the maroon-and-green. i would certainly do so, being a UP grad myself.

many lasallites i've talked to could not for the life of them understand why that guy received the condescension and derision he did, as with JV gayoso years before (although happily JV returned), from the ateneo fans. hope you understand that, for any atenean worth his salt, especially for those who've been in the ateneo since grade school, going over to DLSU --much less donning the green-and-white on the hardcourt -- is something that he shouldn't even think of. hope you don't take it personally, flsfnoeraekadad. that's just the way it is.

as for bacon, by all indications, he will play for the blue eagles.

BJ was a different case. At the time he was recruited, he was heralded as the future of philippine basketball by none other than Chot Reyes. Grade school pa lang, inaabangan na yan. A player that good was just what the Seniors team needed, a team which at that time was beginning to break out of the dark ages with the UAAP ROY, Enrico Villanueva. BJ would have been a perfect fit for a team that badly needed a PG. Kaya't ganun na lang ang hinanakit ng mga atenista nang malaman nilang sa kabila pupunta ang kanilang kinaaabangan na player.

For Mike, though of course we'd want him to play for the blue and white, we know that he has a better opportunity in Diliman. We all know that there's a logjam of small guards for the Blue Eagles, and the most probable time for him to be able to be able to contribute significantly would be at least two years from now, by that time he'd be competing for slots with another up-and-comer, a player with a much more natural talent, isa ding matagal nang inaabangan, JV Dumrique.

Israeli: Si Ferdi lang ang alam ko eh, kasi parang kumpleto na yung lineup. Ewan, pero mukhang marami pang alas na nakatago si Bigote. And DLSU is eyeing for two excellent recruits (from what I heard and read of) that will sure boost the lineup, ayoko lang magsalita baka bawal palang sabihin pero alam ko kung sino ang dalawang ito dahil namention na sa akin.

Regarding the lineup of the Archers, magkakaroon pa naman din daw ng tryouts at magagalaw pa yung roster pero tingin ko eh mga third stringers na lang ang pagtatalunan dun. Kasi buo na yung 1-10 eh. Things will be shaken up pero sa lower spots na lang. Unless something of a major BS goes on, yung first at second five na ng Archers sa HGC ang makikita nyo for July 07.

fls: is there really a need for La Salle to draft new rookies when fact tells us that it is, perhaps, the most stable team in the UAAP today other than champion team UST? kahit na hindi na kumuha ng rookie prospects ang DLSU, it will still a force to reckon with in UAAP basketball unless may mga aalis from the La Salle line-up this year.

so far, lumalabas na ang UST at La Salle lang ang wala masyadong balita as far as rookie prospects are concerned dahil sa almost intact ang mga line-ups nila. the only teams that are battling it out in the rookie acquisition game are UP, Ateneo and FEU (i don't know about Adamson, UE and NU).

01-12-2007, 04:22 PM
IMHO, I think La Salle still needs to scout around for talent in order to have continuity with the program. We can't also discount injuries (knock on wood), personal decisions, etc. And I guess in the same way with other schools, regular players may be knocked out or red shirted in favor of newer recruits or team b players.

As FLS stated: As far as next year's composition is concerned, I think there is 1 open slot up for grabs (most likely to be Ferdinand - LSGH.)

Ferdinand is the most sure rookie that I know La Salle will lock for UAAP 70. Other than that siguro idadaan sa tryouts or magkakaroon ng shuffling sa Team A and Team B based sa performance, pero sure na sa third stringers pa din magaganap ang shuffling, given nothing strange in the upper echelon of the team (starters, second wave of players) happens. Other than that, tingin ko wala masyado mangyayari sa player spot 1-10 (rank importance and talent brought to the team) because the players from the Archers' 1-10 roster space are all startable players and can all finish games for the team.

Mike Gamboa has not been at any of the Ateneo tryouts so I guess he's really headed elsewhere. Some of the people "in Da Nose" have told me he's been practising regularly with the varsity aspirants there. We wish him all the best and thank you very much for the Season 69 Championship.

Luis Lorenzo "Tonino" Gonzaga has shown a lot of skill and huge heart in the ongoing Blue Eagles tryouts. He was a 5/4 in the Juniors game but has the skills to be a solid perimeter player with a consistent jumpshot and great slashing. He also brings solid fundamentals, something he got from Jamike Jarin and Ron "Rapsa" Camara. He looks like a more talented version of Bajjie Del Rosario and is a little taller at 5-foot-11.

Perhaps it's because the NCAA college recruiters are doing their darnedest to make sure that these talents don't cross over to the UAAP. Because, you know, they need to recruit, too. Apparently, recruiting is like shaving - you have to do it every day or else you will look like a bum. Or so someone said ;D


also, anong balita sa NU? ;D
OK lang sila, thanks for asking :P Seriously, though, if you look at the teams that NU fields in the off-season tournaments, you will see that the school seems to use these tournaments as tryouts for their prospects (yes, they do have them). I don't think NU fields the exact same team two games in a row except in the UAAP :o

Ang hina naman ng radar mo or you are to lazy to read the different post in the various school foras here in gameface.* *:P* Wawa ka naman kaya I will help you out with a quick recap:

LSGH star Ferdinand is sealed, signed and delivered for LaSalle.* He may be the only new addition to the current LaSalle varsity team.

Letran star,Julius Wong, is making the tryout rounds.* He had several dinners in Katipunan but found to many current and former blue eaglet players in the dinner table.

Wing player Elvin Pascual of PCU is making good use of the LRT having made stops according to the rumor mill in Espana and Taft.

Dave Marcelo of SBC is like Erap.* He is under house arrest in Taytay.* Lagot ang mga bantay niya sa Lion nation kapag nakatakas.* *:D

Walang recruitable mula sa Mapua at Perpetual Help.* One does not field a team and the other is the NCAA version of NU.* *:o

JRU had 2 players chosen in the mythical 5 in Raycom Kabigting and Carlo Lituania.* No news where they are going.

Baste won the championship but their players are not available to be recruited.*Going for a three-peat before they bid good bye to the Valenzona family.* Heh heh heh heh!* ** ???

natawa naman ako dun sa hirit mo regarding Dave Marcelo. if i remember it correctly, sinabi nung bata na if he will things his way, he would have Ateneo and UP as alternatives to San Beda. mukhang hindi na nga yata papakawalan pa ni MVP na mapunta pa yung bata sa Philcoa kaya ayun, sabi mo nga eh naka-house arrest sa Taytay si Dave. :P

si Elvin Pascual? hmmmmmmm... so mukhang interesado nga ang UST sa kanya? :o

Let us not belittle San Beda's inherent capacity to to convince its own students *and *Dave Marcelo's ability to decide for himself. Para namang lahat ng high school graduates ng San Beda e gustong gustong lumipat ng eskwelahan at pumasok ng Ateneo at La Salle.

^ well, mabuti na rin na nanggaling yan sa 'yo. ;)

since we're talking about Marcelo here, has he tried out in other schools, most especially in UAAP-member ones, or he's just sticking with San Beda?

the improvement in San Beda's stature among NCAA members made the competition for priced rookie prospects even more intense. the competition between the UAAP and the NCAA might just cause the focus to shift from priced rookie prospects out of Metro Manila to untapped basketball talent in the provinces. oh well... i don't know. i could be wrong. ???

Regarding competition for talents, I think the emerging trend now is to go international. Dito mas lamang ang NCAA dahil 1 year residency lang ang kailangan. We all know that the UAAP's rules are more stringent when it comes to foreigners playing in the UAAP.

Just like in the American scene, there may come a time in our shores that not even a bush league/barangay tournament in some distant provincial region may escape the eyes of scouts from big time collegiate programs looking for prospects. It's already gravitating towards that here, with Metro Manila schools' pursuit of players from noted provincial leagues. Hence we have teams with "veteran" rookies as an ordinary occurrence.

As far as I know, the idea of Ferdinand taking on Franz Pumaren's first name was only a joke. (Franz Ferdinand is the name of a past Archduke of Austria, whose assassination triggered World War I, and also of a modern-day British rock band.)

Of course, it's also possible that someone came across the joke in Atenista.Net and actually thought it was a good idea. ::)

UP has lot of players and incoming players who plays with lot of ball touches on offense. Marvin Cruz, Gamboa, de Asis, Co, Reyes & Co. I think Marcelo will not fit that much with the UP system because thier offense is heavily driven by guards and forwards. He might just be limited to the role of blocking shots, rebounding and put-back scoring.

As for Pascual, PCU needs his services. It will be good to see a match-up of him against Marcelo. :D Though I'd say, Pascual should fit the UP rebuilding team than UST. I certainly doubt if Pascual would have quality playing minutes in UST in his first 2 years.

Sir pio_valenz mentioned in one of the threads in Oblation Thread that Marvin Cruz might not be suiting up for the UP Fighting Maroons this coming season. although i am hoping that Marvin Cruz would reconsider his decision (if ever he does leave UP), Marvin's place would be filled by rookies Mike Gamboa and Dexter Rosales and, maybe, a third point guard who we might know later on. ???

as for Elvin Pascual, wala akong naririnig na ibang balita about him other than him being scouted by UST and PCU doing its best to retain the kid in Taft.

sa nakikita ko, he wants to get drafted as soon as his stock is up because he is injury prone. Lot's of times have we heard that he gets all these minor injuries. if he goes to the draft healthy, the better for him. maybe he is worried he might get injuried again making him un-attractive to pro teams.

marvin cruz is doing that because he's that good a player. good enough to join the next PBA draft. though my personal take is one more year in the UAAP would do him better, not to showcase his talent, but rather showcase his leadership. IMO this is something he does need to prove.

but, without him, its going to be a guaranteed breakout year for our boy mike g.

^I think Migs, Martin, VJ, Woody, Vicmel, and Magi are all assured of a roster spot. Among the recruits, Mike Gamboa, Dexter Rosales, and Mark Lopez also have virtually clinched their roster spots. No, it was never a case of everyone, including the holdovers, having to go through tryouts all over again. When the tryouts were held last December 12-14, only aspirants scrimmaged against each other while the holdovers worked out at an adjacent court. There was a clear division among the "haves" and "have-nots", so to speak.

Just saw the UP Maroons lose to PCU Dasma last saturday. I was surprised coz i saw Mike Gamboa already playing for them. that explains why he is the only Blue Eaglet not playing in the FMC3. Funny thing is that i just got to read this thread about him. Well i believe it is the best choice for him since the Eagles already have Jai, Monfort and Salamat as the guards and between him and ALec Rivera i believe Alec is the better PG. Mike is arguably the better scorer.

Anyway, i admire the discussion regarding the other recruits here. Keep it up guys just share the things you have been hearing.

for now, the PCU juniors team is similar to a person inflicted with a highly communicable disease- avoided and isolated. perhaps no coach in his right mind would draft a player from an institution that is currently under the microscope due to the scandal that it has gone into nowadays, thanks to players who switched identities and school officials who have conspired with them.

sabihin na lang natin na magiging panis na itlog si Pascual dahil sa kalokohan na pinasok ng ilang teammates niya. his college basketball dream is just as good as dead, thanks to PCU's suspension and impending expulsion from the NCAA.

The best thing that Pascual can do is to prove to anyone willing to take a gamble on him, in light of the scandal, that he IS who he says he is. He is fresh out of high school, hence have no residency issues to any school that takes him in and will be a shoo-in in anyone's roster for the coming season. A little extra effort at due diligence may be all the difference in a season. To a school taking the initiative at doing this and finding no adverse findings against him, putting him in their Team A is a no-brainer.* Academics na lang ang X-factor.

Right now, Pascual and his father are on a mission to rise from this adversity. I tend to agree with Anthony here.

The kid should not be ostracized just because some of his PCU mates committed irregularities. If he knocks on a door, pleads his case, shows his worth as a player and as a person, then by all means that door should be opened. Don't let prejudice prevent any school from opening that door.

Player raid confirmed; PCU cager joins SBC

By WAYLON GALVEZ

Philippine Christian Universityís worst fears were confirmed yesterday when it got word that a member of its junior basketball team has agreed to play for San Beda College in next monthís 83rd National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

PCU athletic director Alfredo Olano, who said the other day that he has received reports that several schools were after his best players, identified the player who transferred as Elvin Pascual, the leagueís high school MVP last season.

Olano said Pascual failed to notify him or any member of the PCU coaching staff about his decision to transfer to San Beda.

Olano said Pascual informed him that no matter what happens, he would remain with PCU.

"He (Pascual) said that even with the one-year suspension imposed by the NCAA against PCU, he would stick with us. We donít know what happened," said Olano.

Olanoís revelation confirmed reports that some NCAA member schools are raiding the PCU ranks after the Taft-based school was suspended for fielding an ineligible player last season.

Pascual helped the PCU Baby Dolphins to the finals last season where they were beaten by the San Sebastian Staglets.

In his first NCAA appearance, the 6-foot-5 Pascual displayed tremendous potential when he became the first junior player to win the coveted Most Valuable Player and Rookie of the Year honors.

Following his graduation in high school this summer, Pascual continued to stay with PCU and has been practicing with the Dolphins under head coach Joel Dualan.

PCUís suspension, however, led to Pascualís transfer to San Beda.

"Actually itís okay if our high school players move to other schools. The problem is maglalaro síya sa amin. But we were suspended. Bigla na lang kinuha ng San Beda ng walang paalam. Hindi maganda tignan eh," said Olano.

Ralph Lansang, another member of the junior team, is being eyed by University of the East, according to Olano.

Raiding? That's PCU's side. Stop putting a spin on the issue. Given the scandal that sullied their basketball program, other schools should be wary of any player coming from their program. Kumatok sa pinto namin ang bata at ang kaniyang ama. They want redemption from this scandal. Ipagkakait pa ba iyan sa kanila*kung wala naman silang kasalanan, at nadamay lang sila?

Masyado yatang presumptous ang PCU officials. >:( >:( >:(

Kung ang player ay isang incoming college freshman, the player is "fair game". Alam ng lahat yan. Even if they are not recruited, they still have every right to transfer to another school.

Kung ano man ang binitawang salita ng player, that's between him and his former school.

The fact is, even if a school is not in the same situation as PCU, student athletes and their parents have every right to decide what they think is good for them.

Mas lalo pa kung ang kasalukuyan mong paaralan ay nasa kalagayan ng PCU, eg SUSPENDED WTIH THE POSSIBILITY OF GETTING EXPELLED FROM THE NCAA !

Eh, paano kung sa gitna ng papasok na academic year ay biglang ma-expell ang PCU, dagdag na isang taon pa ang masasayang sa mga bata.

IMO, it is the news of a possible expulsion that prompted these transfers.

It's all human nature.

One does not need a doctorate in the social sciences to understand a person's behavior given uncertainties.

Kung may abilidad ang anak ko, bakit ko naman iko-commit ang kanyang paglalaro sa isang paaralan na kasalukuyang suspended at maaring ma-expell?

Ang pagkakamali ng PCU, hindi sila nagbigay ng formal report sa NCAA Board ng kanilang sariling imbestigasyon. Napatawan na ng parusa, wala pa ring koncretong aksyon o report sa Board na magpapatunay na tinutugunan nila ang problema.

At yan ang di nagustuhan ng Board at duon nagsimula ang usapin ng expulsion.

Ngayon, iiyak-iyak sila!

His potential is enourmous. He is a type of player that an dominate inside games and inside presence on the defensive end.

Anyway Kuya MonL and Lion pumasa ba sa mga required criteria? ;D

Reading that line "kinuha ng san beda" is way beyond out. How come, the red lions is not interested on his services as there are still plenty big man in the pool. A walk-in applicant is different from a recruited player.

Actually, nahulog siyang parang hinog na bayabas sa nakabukang bibig ni Juan Tamad...* :D

We never did set our sights on Pascual, as PCU was in the post-Espinas rebuilding mode, locking him up and getting "veteran rookies" like Lee Boliver to shore them up.* Plus, we had a guaranteed slot in Team A set aside for Dave Marcelo, making for a pretty solid frontline already.* Eh lumapit sa amin. Ayos! ;D

As for the title defense being easier, it's still too early to tell.

well, kaysa nga naman maging burong mustasa siya by sticking it out with PCU kahit alam niyang wala siyang involvement sa gulo na kinasasangkutan ng eskuwelahan niya, i guess it is a right decision for Elvin Pascual to make the move to San Beda, where he can fulfill his college basketball dreams. ;)

so, i guess it's time for the UAAP schools to say goodbye to Pascual as he heads for Mendiola. ;D

Ken Acibar at least seems to be out of the DLSU recruitment loop: I caught the guy over at a UE tryout, perhaps trying to at least make the B Team, because as far as I know the UAAP squad is just an announcment away from being official.

Was at Moro Lorenzo Sports Center last night in the Ateneo campus and was able to catch the last half of a tune-up game between AdMU's Team A and Team B. Team A was coached by Sandy Arespacochaga and was composed of old reliables Al-Hussaini, Arao, Barracoso, Chris Tiu, Escueta, Quimson, Laterre, Monfort and Reyes together with likely UAAP inserts Nonoy Baclao, Jobe Nkemakolam, Carlo Lastimosa, Chris Sumalinog and Bacon Austria. On the other end of the floor were the Team B players coached by Gabby Severino. Team B's prominent names were Pao Dizon, Jeff De Guzman, Mike Baldos, Enzo Katipunan, Charles Tiu, Alec Rivera, Balmaceda, and Luis Gonzaga along with some (presumably) recruits. Two were sporting Red & Gold jerseys which might suggest they came from San Sebastian, one was wearing a White, Blue and Red jersey which could mean he's from Letran and the last recruit was ... Chiang Kai Shek's Justin Chua!!!

I was really surprised to see him there, first because I think he still has one year to go in HS and second because I know he's one of the most sought after HS players around... if he would indeed go to AdMU then the Blue Eagles' frontline would be cemented for the next 4 or 5 years. Chua is a low-post throwback to Enrico Villanueva, but frankly I think he offers more versatility because he shoots better from the perimeter and can run the floor really well for his size. I don't think he can jump as high as Rico though...

Curiously absent from the game, and from anywhere in Moro, were Eric Salamat and prized find Kirk Long... hmmmm I wonder why?

Anyway, hope this season will be great for Loyola's pride!

ONE BIG FIGHT!!! :)

Woah! Post na post pa lang, alam na agad kung saan school ka galing. Bwa ha ha! Don't worry, from your measly 14 posts, I think this is the most thought provoking, classy, and significant aside from the other tirades that you threw in your other posts.

I think that the rookie that will create the most impact for a team will be Julius Wong. This kid has a lot of upside. 6'1" to 6'2" with a decent medium range jumper and shifty one on one moves. He is a smaller version of Vergel Meneses. Too bad Ateneo let him slip away. UP will definitely benefit from this low key player from Letran.

Medyo mangagapa pa tong mga freshmen ng UP this season. Aminin man natin or hindi, sa basketball lamang parin ang veteran smarts at experience manggulang. Individual talent and potential to grow are there, no question asked. They will be scary come their third year. UP Alumnis have just to be patient and supportive with the team as it takes years to harvest the fruits. Just like when the red lions fielded in Menor, Taganas, Tecson & Tirona in thier first year in 2005, ang sakit sa mata makitang maraming turnover coming from them. Its a risk to field rookies in the early years, but its the only way to speed up the development of these freshies.

The way I see it in years to come (manghula ba? *:D), tingin ko lang. Mark Lopez will be the heart and soul of the team, achoring the defense and do it all for whats need for the team to win. Rivera will be the main guy in the post and scoring. Gamboa will be the leader and facilitator (has the heart and toughness to do so). All else will be supporting cast, but the team will revolve on those 3 guys three years from now. *My take is they concentrate first on the developing thier team defense first this season.

I've never seen Julius Wong in action, so thanks for the scouting report. I was hoping to see him play at the Nike Elite camp last month with the other UP recruits (Rivera, Lopez, Gamboa, Yulo, etc.) but he wasn't at the games. Wong and Woody Co are the future small forwards for the Maroons, a position which has been lacking good talent for UP the past few years.

I think the ROY will boil down on who will be the best UP rookie..Let's face it, this year's UP team is so young, the team is composed of mostly 2nd years and 1st year players..Rivera, Lopez, Gamboa and Rosales will surely be part of the rotation of the team. More playing time means more time to showcase one's capabilities inside the basketball court and raise those individual and team statistics...Gamboa and Rosales will rotate at PG, a place that was supposed to be occupied by Marvin Cruz until he decided not to wear the Maroon and Green.. Lopez and Rivera will play alongside Co, Serios, etal. So my bet is that a UP rookie will win the ROY!

Don't put too much premium on the stats that a rookie logs with respect to his chances of bagging ROY honors.

May kasamang DELIBERATION sa pagpili ng awardees sa UAAP. ( Sa NCAA its purely stats. Either way may pros and cons.)

At alam niyo naman ang kalakaran sa Board. Kahit ang NASA weather forecasting experts ay di masasabi kung saan patungo ang usapan ryan.

Just because Kirk is playing in a guard ridden line-up doesn't mean he'll be getting little playing time. As is, i can see him playing at least as a back-up 2 or 3. He'll be getting solid minutes from coach Norman for sure.

Besides, importante din na may mga panalo yung team mo. I dont think you'll get the ROY award if your team gets it's ass hammered every time. so it would help if you have a relatively long season. Remember, out of sight, out of mind. Unless you cough up jordanesque numbers..

^I dunno man... Woody Co won ROY last year, despite the beating that UP got. But if you're saying UP didn't really get pummelled every time, then I take that, being a UP follower, as a compliment. :)

If I remember it right, ROY involves statistical points only and not won games. Won games, i believe, work for other awards like the MVP.

Actually a player gets 15 statistical points for every game his team wins, provided he gets fielded in. So yes, may weight din ang win-loss record.

any word on where former ue page erwin duran ended up? is he presently practicing with a school's team B? among last year's uaap juniors mythical 5, i believed that duran was the most talented individually - better than soc, better than bacon, better than mike g, better than lopez.

^Yes, he's currently with UE's farm team, and he should get a roster spot next year with the loss of Borboran, Gregorio, and Fampulme. I heard he was heavily recruited by other colleges, but he chose to stay put with the Warriors. That kid is gonna be a bigtime player.

i agree with you bro,paul lee will definitely be the next big thing..all around great basketball sense (offense-outside slash inside then defense aswell rebound and steals,he has it all)..if he still qualifies which i think he still does then id say itll be a walk in the park for him.. he might not lead it with stats among all rookies but hes the most efficient..

the next joseph yeo for me but not in the pba..hehehe

he's eligible as far as i know. and if he'd only see more than 20 minutes per game of playing time, he'd have a bigger chance...but in UE's deep lineup, he's playing only about 13 mpg, if i'm not mistaken.

for me, it's either mike gamboa or jr cawaling for ROY...

Paul Lee is not eligible because he is not a Freshman Rookie.

rookies are those coming fresh out of high school

Same goes with Jonas Villanueva. Teka, san ba galing itong si JR Cawaling?

08-23-2007, 05:11 PM
^oo nga pala no...di nga pala eligible for ROY si jervy last year...

i think cawaling is a pure freshman. somebody correct me if i'm wrong...

FEU high ba? hindi ko sure, pero kay Paul Sanga ako. Although I think Mike G is a better all around player, bigger impact for the year si Sanga. IMO.

Cawaling is a rrookie out of FEU High. He did not play last year for the Baby Tams becuase of residency. Paul Sanga is not a rookie ( Freshman ), He was a Hotshot in the FEU intramurals which led to his inclusion to the varsity team. ;)

when you say cawaling did not play for the uaap last year because of residency, ibig mo sabihin he was in team b of feu? if this is the case, hindi din siya pwede for rookie of the year award candidate.

yung tipong katulad ni mike gamboa, ferdinand, kirk long na bago lang nag graduate sa high school (this march 2007) lang. tapos 1st year college na by june 2007 & are playing in the uaap basketball .... yung ang tipong pwede i-nominate sa rookie of the year award ....

JR Cawaling graduated from FEU-FERN last March. He did not play for the BABY Tams ( FEU's Jr. team ) because of residency. He came from Cagayan De Oro and was a third year High School student when He tansferred last year to FEU- FERN. Thus, He is a "True" rookie.

peterstrauss

then pwede si cawaling for rookie of the year award or ma-nominate for that award. kailangan i-explain yung residency because it can apply to a transferee from any college

marmand

The Residency ruling applies also with the Juniors. In the case of Cawaling, He moved from his High School in Mindanao ( Dont know exectly what High School ) to FEU-FERN last year. He could not play for the Junior Team of FEU because He was a transferee. He had to reside in FEU-FERN for one year ( per Residency ruling ) before playing but since He was already 4th year High School then there was no chance for him to play for the Juniors.

simple lang naman yan eh. in order to be qualified for the ROY, you need to be a freshman rookie.
is cawaling a rookie? yes. is cawaling a freshman? yes.
