Baste, Red Cubs in early finals showdown

by JP Abcede


In what could probably turn out as an NCAA playoff preview, San Sebastian College-Recoletos and San Beda College would clash for the Nike Summer League juniors crown after defeating their respective adversaries on June 2 at the Far Eastern University gym.

The Staglets stomped the Baby Tamaraws, 101-78, to eliminate the second FEU squad of the day. SSCR ran away in the first half and led by as much 17, 37-20, from a Ryan Buenafe three-point play, 4:55 before halftime.

In the second half, San Sebastian countered any Far Eastern rally while managing to reach the 20-point margin mark late in the game.

"Iyon naman din ang anticipation namin, ang San Beda makakalaban sa finals," said SSCR coach Raymund Valenzona.

Buenafe, Joseph Raffy Gusi, and Arvie Bringas provided the three-headed attack for the Staglets, combining for 67 points, 28 rebounds, and nine assists.

On the other side, Anthony Paulino led four other Baby Tams in a losing cause with 18 markers and nine boards.

The Red Cubs avenged their loss against Letran in the elminations with a convincing 81-73 victory. The Squires never tasted the lead, although they managed to tie the count at 45-all, early in the third period.

From thereon, though, they never came close to eight as San Beda showed its inside strength and strangling defense.

"Mas desidido mga bata," said SBC coach Ato Badolato. "Gusto nila bumawi sa pagkatalo nung eliminations."

Dennis Bernas led Beda with 21 points on 9/13 shooting, while Niko Salva (15 points and ten rebounds) and and LA Revilla (ten points and 12 assists) notched double-doubles. Leeward Lobaton also made ten markers.

Darrel Reforsado spearheaded CSJL with 15 points, going perfect from beyond the arc and at the freethrow line. Jerelan Tampus and John Michael Noble finished with 14 and ten, respectively.

"Ang adjusment lang (against San Beda is) aggressive sa depensa," Valenzona said.

"We will try to prepare for (San Sebastian)," Badolato assured.

University of Santo Tomas became the first team in the women's division to enter the final round, short circuiting FEU, 60-54.

Remia Buenacosa headed the Tigresses with 33 points, 11 rebounds, and four steals. Marichu Bacaro produced ten, eight, and five.

Kathrina Reyes had a double-double for the Lady Tams with 13 points and 13 rebounds. Bernadette Mercado wrote down 11 markers.

University of the Philippines and Philippine College of Criminology would see action on June 5 following the battle for third in the juniors division.

Ateneo High School mauls Don Bosco Makati
by Jonas Terrado

Undefeated Ateneo de Manila High School rose to yet another easy victory in the 2008 Nike Summer League juniors division after routing Don Bosco Technical Institute, 93-42, at the FEU gym in Manila last May 14.

The Eaglets dominated right from the opening tap, making a 12-4 start before finishing the first quarter ahead, 28-10. They then continued its onslaught in the second period to go ahead at 48-23 during halftime.

Paolo Romero led Ateneo with 23 points, six rebounds, and five assists as he ripped the DBTI frontline with a number of three-point plays off offensive rebounds.

Other contributors include Al Eugerin, who mustered 11 points and four rebounds, and Ivan Enriquez with eight points and four rebounds. Andro Almonte scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds as well for the Jamike Jarin-mentored ballclub.

The Katipunan dribblers scored 40 points in the third, capped off by a buzzer-beater by Almonte to go ahead 82-36. They then held the Makati-based squad to just six points in the final period even as the Eaglets struggled to score in the final canto as well to settle the final canto.

The victory enabled Ateneo to improve its mark to a perfect 6-0 with one match remaining against Notre Dame of Greater Manila on Saturday.

Mauro Francisco Lumba topscored for Don Bosco Makati with 12 points and six rebounds with Jaime Alejandro falling two rebounds short of a double-double with 10 points and grabbed eight boards.

The UAAP runners-up to De La Salle Zobel last season pounded DBTI in the late stretch of the third as a 15-5 blitz made a 57-27 edge into a huge 72-32 advantage at the 1:31 mark.

DBTI slipped to 1-5 in Group C for last spot behind another cellar-dweller Chiang Kai Shek College.

Meanwhile, San Beda College prevented a tough challenge by Informatics to win, 83-69, and remained in second place in the same group with a 3-1 record.

Garrick Glen Ayala muscled his way for 28 points and 15 rebounds with Dave Moralde adding 12 points for the victorious Red Cubs side, who held Informatics to just five points in the final canto to pull away.

Informatics dropped to a 3-2 card for fourth position as Benjie Teodoro collected 23 points, six rebounds, and eight assists. Ceres Bunye chipped in 11 points and five assists.

In the third game, De La Salle Lipa survived a slow-paced match to defeat hapless San Beda College-Alabang, 48-45, in women’s basketball action.

Mary Christine Comeso bannered the Lady Chevrons’ second win in seven outings in Group A with 16 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals with Rubie Javier making a rare double-double feat by scoring 14 and normed 12 rebounds.

San Beda Alabang fell to their seventh consecutive setback despite Carla Godoy’s 14-point, 13-rebound effort along with guard Isabel Hermoso’s 11 points, four rebounds, four assists, and four steals.

Lady Blazers upset Lady Eagles
by Jonas Terrado

College of Saint Benilde made a shocking overturn of UAAP champion Ateneo de Manila University with a dominating second quarter to score a 53-32 rout in women’s division action of the 2008 Nike Summer League at the FEU gym last May 14.

The Lady Blazers, second-placers in the WNCAA Division A last season, forced the Lady Eagles to without a field goal while giving up just two points in the said period before blowing them out the rest of the contest.

With their fourth victory in five outings, the Taft-based cagebelles took solo second honors in Group A behind spotless Far Eastern University while Ateneo suffered their second defeat in six matches to fell into third position.

CSB actually trailed by four points heading into the second period but Julie Ann Paras scored six straight points to lead a 14-0 blast that eventually gave them a 28-16 halftime margin.

By the start of the second half, the Lady Blazers continued to punctuate the Katipunan-based dribblers as Monika Reyes and Catherine dela Cruz combined to put the lead to 20 points for the first time, 45-25, with 7:20 left in the ballgame.

The lanky Paras led Benilde with 13 points and nine rebounds in 32 minutes of action while national team member Leonette Salvacion added 12 and nine in the win.

“Important itong game na ‘to,” said winning coach Piao Fedillaga. “Kailangan namin makaangat sa first or second place para mga lower seeded teams makalaban namin sa quarterfinals, malalakas din ang mga teams sa kabilang group.”

The top four teams from two groups after the elimination round will qualify for the final eight in a crossover format.

Treena Limgenco recorded a near double-double of 13 points and nine steals with Ronnagie Go chipping in seven points and eight rebounds for the Lady Eagles.

It was Limgenco who led Ateneo ahead in a tight first quarter, as she came up with six points, all coming from steals from the backcourt for a 14-10 edge before leaving shortly with a slight injury to the knee following a looseball collision.

But CSB tightened its defense and eventually held Ateneo to a whopping 11-for-58 shooting from the field. The Lady Blazers also had 14 assists, six coming from Shaira Sansaluna, compared to just three for the Lady Eagles.

“Wala naman akong ginawang adjustment, nagpick up lang yung game nila nung second quarter,” Fedillaga noted.

In other results, De La Salle University, behind Olivia Ivory Ojeda’s 14 points and rebounds and Bernadette Rose Yamamoto’s 11-point, 11-rebound showing, ripped apart UAAP foe University of the East, 52-32.

On the other hand, Adamson University survived a resilliant Philippine Maritime Institute squad, 65-57, as Kat Sandel fired 25 points even as Analyn Almazan tallied a double-double effort by scoring 18 and grabbing 12 rebounds. In the final game, National University defeated Emilio Aguinaldo College, 51-45, as Elise Joy Ramos made 13 points and four rebounds.

The RP Youth team returns to action in the juniors division starting at 10am tomorrow with a battle against national intersecondary champion Benedictine International School while La Salle Greenhills and Jose Rizal University meet in a crucial all-Mandaluyong tiff immediately follow.

In the afternoon, University of the East takes on Polytechnic University of the Philippines while La Salle tries to remain without a defeat against quarterfinal-aiming Adamson in seniors’ division clashes.

The last game will feature San Sebastian College Recoletos and NU in another juniors tilt at 4pm.

Maroons crush Blazers, 77-57, in Nike cage league
abs-cbnnews.com

The UP Maroons returned with a vengeance as it buried College of St. Benilde, 77-57, in the Nike Summer League seniors game at the FEU Gym in Manila on Friday.

An earlier 29-25 setback at the start of the second half failed to deter the Diliman dribblers to outscore the Blazers, 21-4 in the first five minutes of the third canto on the back of Mike Silungan's heroics. The third quarter ended with UP ahead, 46-33.

Silungan had 14 markers in the second half to end the game with 24 points.

"We were actually down by about 14 points in the second quarter and we made a good run towards the end of the second quarter before we took control of the second half," said UP head coach Aboy Castro. Both UP and CSB are now tied at fourth spot in Group D with 3-3 each.

Castro described Silungan as a big help to the team.

"He has been a big help thus far, too bad we have to wait for two years because of the UAAP ruling," Castro said of his rookie, referring to Silungan's dual citizenship status which requires him to sit out for two years before trying joining the UAAP squad.

It was not totally easy for the Maroon throughout as the Blazers cut out a 10-7 run to slice the gap to 53-45 with 9:33 into the fourth quarter.

Silungan, however, came back and connected with a three-pointer and an easy layup to push UP further, 58-45, en route to the win.

The Maroons also banked on the power from PBL standouts Magi Sison and Paul Sorongon. Sison had 8 points and 8 boards while Sorongon added 9 points and 4 steals.

From CSB, Jacob Manlapaz poured in 9 points while Anjelo Montecastro and Garri Sevilla each had 8.

UP's last match will be against Lyceum Institute of Technology of Calamba on May 28.

Saint Benilde, meanwhile, will meet UE on May 20.

In the other game Friday, Jose Rizal U defeated Polytechnic University of the Philippines, 93-58, behind 22 points and 6 three-pointers from Maui Pradas. The Heavy Bombers finished their NSL stint with a decent 4-3 card, winning their last two games.

Far Eastern U's Team B, meanwhile, beat crushed Nokia-National Basketball Training Center in an exhibition match, 72-46.

Archers dump Cards, wrest quarters seat

Sunday, May 25, 2008
www.philstar.com


The La Salle Green Archers served notice to college basketball that they are still the team to beat after an overpowering showing Saturday in the Nike Summer League tournament.

Rico Maierhofer scored 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and the Archers broke out of the gates with a 22-12 first-quarter run before coasting to a 70-50 victory over the Mapua Cardinals at the Far Eastern U gym.

The win gave La Salle a 5-1 record and forced a triple tie atop Group A. But the Archers’ 20-point win gave them the highest quotient, putting the defending NSL champs automatically into the quarters.

That leaves Mapua and Adamson to play in a knockout game to determine the other school that will advance from the same group.

Peejay Barua added 14 points and JV Casio offset a cold shooting game with eight assists and three steals for La Salle, which could set up a semifinal meeting with no less than archrival Ateneo.

In women’s play, however, the La Salle women’s team couldn’t hold the fort, dropping a 57-45 decision to Adamson.

The Lady Archers (5-2) need to sweep their last two games if they still hope to make it to the quarters outright. Adamson stretched its record to 8-0 and is a win away from completing a group-stage sweep.

University of Santo Tomas (7-1) was the third team in Group B to enter the next round in women’s play after winning 57-52 over Philippine Maritime Institute (4-4).

Letran forces NU to play sudden death
by Jonas Terrado



Colegio de San Juan de Letran went out with a bang to deny National University a quick trip to the quarterfinals after a low-scoring 59-43 thumping in a seniors division clash of the 2008 Nike Summer League at the FEU gym in Manila last May 27.

In a physical encounter, the Knights got a huge boost from JP Felencion and RJ Jazul in the second half to pull away from a slim 23-22 deficit at halftime as the duo connected a number of three-point shots to topple the Bulldogs in the process.

With key players such as Dino Daa out of action, Felencion made four triples to lead Letran with 16 points, with Jazul adding 11 points and five steals while knocking in three shots from the three-point country.

Despite tying the Bulldogs and idle FEATI University at second place in Group D with a 5-2 mark, the Knights bowed out of contention as they carry an inferior quotient than the two. NU and the Seahawks, however, are scheduled to play a one-game playoff for the final spot in a later date.

The Muralla-based dribblers outscored NU, 10-5, to grab a 38-32 lead after the third period as Felencion hit two treys, one of which came alongside a triple from Jazul. From there, the Knights extended the lead to double-digits, 50-39, on a three-pointer by Regin Ranises.

“Nung second half, maganda ang ikot namin sa bola pati na din yung shooting,” said head coach Louie Alas. "Overall, satisfy naman ako sa nilaro ng team."

It was a positive end to the Knights’ preseason campaign, as they had a rough time competing against several foes in a trio of tournaments participated, including the NSL.

“Below par ang performance ng team,” Alas lamented. “May mga unexpected losses kami sa mga sinalihan namin, we need to practice more in preparation for the NCAA season.”

Cris Catamora had a double-double effort the Bulldogs in a losing cause, making 12 points and 11 rebounds in 31 minutes of action, but no other player from Manny Dandan’s side scored beyond 10 points.

Letran made a quick start by taking an 11-5 lead and did not allow their opponent to score a field goal in the early moments. But, NU bounced back to take the lead for the first time at the half on a 6-0 run, capped off by jumper by Jewel Ponferrada with under a minute left.

Two other seniors’ results were convincing routs as San Sebastian College-Recoletos, behind 18 points and five rebounds from Arvie Bringas and 16 and 10 from Dave Najorda, dismantled De La Salle-Lipa, 105-55, while University of the East ended their elimination stint with a 6-1 card after an 80-36 crushing of Lyceum Institute of Technology from Calamba, Laguna as Raffy Reyes made 13 points for the Warriors.

In the lone women’s basketball action held in the evening, University of Santo Tomas squeaked out a 70-63 overtime victory as Marichu Bacaro shut down the Lady Archers with 28 points along with 19 from Remia Buenacosa.

With the league taking a respite tomorrow, the tournament resumes hostilities on Thursday as La Salle Lipa challenges guest team RP Youth women’s team at 10am. At 11:30 am, it Lipa’s senior team’s turn to play against two-time NCAA champion San Beda College.

Afternoon games pit College of Saint Benilde and Polytechnic University of the Philippines at 1pm and De La Salle University versus Philippine Maritime Institure at 2:30pm, both in the women’s division.

The last two will be in the juniors’ side as Jose Abad Santos Memorial School battles Philippine College of Criminology at 4pm, followed by a key tussle between Benedictine International School and Letran at 5:30pm.

Not even a convincing victory could give the Letran Knights a shot at advancing in the Nike Summer League basketball tournament.


JP Felencion scored 16 points and Letran star gunner RJ Jazul added 11 to help the Knights defeat the National University Bulldogs, 59-43 in a seniors’ game Tuesday at the Far Eastern University gym.

Though the Knights raised their (win-loss) record to 5-2 to tie NU and idle FEATI, they were still eliminated from the race because of an inferior quotient.

NU and FEATI go up in a one-game playoff to determine the second quarterfinalist in Group D.

Group A teams Mapua and Adamson are also scheduled for a playoff.

The knockout games are start on Saturday also at the FEU gym.

San Beda and Lyceum, which are both safely in the quarters, will also play that day to determine which team gets the No.1 spot in Group B.

The loss threatened La Salle’s trouble-free passage into the quarterfinals.

Nike Summer League gears up for televised games



By TJ MANOTOC
ABS-CBN News

The Nike Summer League is putting the competition in high gear as it enters the quarterfinals stages of its Men’s, Junior’s, and Women’s division on its fourth year. A record 80 teams participated in this preseason tournament tagged as one of the best previews of the upcoming wars in the UAAP and the NCAA. Now they are down to eight teams per division.

As the attention remains to be on the Men’s squads, a total of four UAAP schools made it to the top 8. Ateneo, DLSU, FEU and UE are all storming into the quarters with a good showing in the elination rounds where a team has to make it to the top two in their group to advance.

Joining the four UAAP teams are two teams from the NCAA -- San Beda and Mapua. The Cardinals and coach Leo Isaac are hyped for this campaign at they are happy with how they are performing considering they are the hosts too for this year’s NCAA.

San Beda, meanwhile, continues to boasts of its champion squad and now have two Nigerians boosting them, although league rules will not allow Sam Ekwe and Emika Udo to play on the court together. But as they relieve each other from the bench, that continues to make the Red Lions a dominant inside force.

The other two teams that make up the top eight are Lyceum and FEATI. Both schools don’t compete in the NCAA or UAAP but have garnered the respect of the "bigger" schools for how they have played and proved their worth playing with the country’s elite teams.

They face tough opponents in the quarters as Lyceum goes up against FEU and FEATI will have to contend with DLSU. Coach Bonny Tan of Lyceum and Luis Gonzales of FEATI are both honored to be in the quarters and say their boys are ready to give the fight of their lives vs their UAAP opponents.

Meanwhile, if both Ateneo and DLSU survive the quarters, they will meet in the semis in what will be their first do or die game this year. Both teams are coming of great stints in the elims and have done a great deal to prepare for this year’s UAAP.

Ateneo seems have one up on DLSU at least in the recruitment wars as most have conceded the Blue Eagles to have accomplished a casting coup snatching four of the top five rookies up for grabs.

Ryan Buenafe, Justin Chua, Nico Salva, and Vince Burk will all be boosting coach Norman Black and the returning Blue Eagles. Not to be outdone, DLSU has loaded cast coming back led by JV Casio and Rico Marihoffer and top rookie Joshua Webb who is the third generation of Webb basketball players as his grandfather, former senator Freddie, and his uncle Jason, both had their glory in college hoops in their time.

ABS-CBN Sports and Studio 23 will be airing the NSL ‘08 quarters up to the finals live beginning June 5 from 2-6 p.m.

MANILA, Philippines—De La Salle University destroyed Far Eastern University's cloak of invincibility in the women's quarterfinals of the Nike Summer League with a 77-75 upset in overtime Monday at the FEU gym.

Angeli Jo Glorani nailed a triple with 35 seconds left that proved to be the game-winning basket as the Lady Archers forged a semifinal showdown with University of Santo Tomas.

The UST Tigresses routed the College of St. Benilde Lady Blazers, 61-48, with Marichu Bacaro and Remia Buenacosa combining for 31 points.

Glorani finished with 28 points, including six of La Salle's 10 points in the extra session, while Kristine Alon-Alon, who drained a triple to tie the game at 73, wound up with 14.

The FEU Lady Tamaraws, unbeaten in the elimination round, came back from 51-58 to force overtime at 67-all.

FEU was paced by Bernadette Mercado, who flirted with a triple-double by tallying 19 points, nine rebounds and 12 assists, and Soccoro Borja who added 15.

Philippine College of Criminology, despite scoring only two points in the second quarter, found enough firepower in the final half to oust University of the Philippines, 55-35.

PCCr set up a duel with Adamson University, winner by default over Ateneo de Manila University.

The juniors quarterfinals are scheduled Tuesday while the knockout stage of the men's tournament gets going Thursday at the Rizal Coliseum with UAAP champ La Salle, winner of last year's edition, battling Feati University at 2 p.m.

San Beda College and University of the East clash at 4 p.m. in one of two marquee quarterfinal duels pitting NCAA and UAAP teams.

Ateneo, fresh from training in the United States, and Mapua Institute of Technology collide in the other UAAP-NCAA duel on Sunday.

Tigresses in finals
mb.com.ph





The defending champions are making a return trip to the finals of the women’s division of the Nike Summer League basketball tournament.


University of Santo Tomas is a win away from repeating after the Tigresses shut down the La Salle Lady Archers, 54-46, Wednesday at the Far Eastern University gym in Morayta.

Marichu Bacaro scored 19 points and two other Tigresses finished with double-doubles to lead UST into the championship where it will face Adamson.

Adamson defeated Philippine College of Criminology, 62-50, to prevent a rematch of last year’s finals.

La Salle found itself behind early and were limited to just 16 points to fall behind by 12 (28-16) at the half.

The Tigresses were able to contain La Salle star Angeli Jo Gloriani who finished with only 12 points on four-of-16 shooting. Kristine Alon-Alon led the Lady Archers with 18 points.

In juniors play, La Salle-Greenhills booked a finals seat after beating Letran High School 88-82.

La Salle exacted revenge on the Squires who eliminated the Greenies’ sister school La Salle-Zobel in the previous round.

The Greenies will battle reigning champion San Sebastian-Recoletos. The Staglets defeated the Ateneo Blue Eaglets, 76-65.

The women’s and juniors finals are scheduled June 13 at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City .

Meanwhile, the seniors quarterfinals begin today as La Salle continues on its title-retention bid against lowly FeatiI U at 2 p.m.

The other match set at 4 o’clock pits San Beda and University of the East. Both contests will be played at the Rizal Coliseum and aired live on Studio 23.

Nike caging: La Salle, UE on collision course for title

First Posted 03:27:00 06/06/2008

MANILA, Philippines—De La Salle University and University of the East lined themselves up for a possible title clash with contrasting quarterfinal victories Thursday in the 4th Nike Summer League at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

The La Salle Archers drew strength from veterans Peejay Barua and Rico Maierhoffer in a 89-67 rout of the Feati University dribblers.

Maierhoffer scored eight of his 14 points in a 14-2 blast that allowed La Salle to erect a 69-52 lead. Barua finished with 18 points, including six in the fourth period, to help the Archers overcome a sluggish start.

The UE Warriors, who lost to the Archers in last year’s UAAP finals, weathered San Beda College’s fourth-quarter storm to hammer out a 91-87 victory that gave them the second semifinal seat.

“We haven’t been practicing as much as we wanted,” said Archers coach Franz Pumaren. “Right now, we are just 65 percent in shape.”

The win pushed the Archers to a potential Final Four tiff with archrival Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles, who will take on the Mapua Institute of Technology Cardinals on Sunday.

Playing their second game in as many days, the Warriors watched the Lions gobble up their 24-point lead in the fourth quarter. UE even trailed by three down the stretch.

But the Warriors, who lost to the Far Eastern University Tamaraws in the Fil-Oil pre-season tournament Wednesday, seized the initiative with two defensive stops and a Sam Ekwe turnover, before veterans Pari Llagas and James Martinez combined for the team’s last seven points and put the outcome beyond doubt.

UE will play the winner of the Far Eastern-Lyceum showdown in the semifinals.

“We relaxed and just protected the lead,” said UE coach Dindo Pumaren, whose Warriors posted the game’s biggest lead at 74-50 on a Paul Lee layup with 39 seconds left in the second quarter.

Capping San Beda’s 27-point turnaround was Pong Escobal, who completed a steal off Raffy Reyes for a breakaway basket that propelled the Lions, 87-84, with 1:21 left.

But Llagas hit two free throws then tipped in Elmer Espiritu’s miss for an 88-87 UE lead, with 12 ticks left. A backcourt error by Ekwe and Martinez’s charities spelled the Lions’ doom.

4 p.m. - Ateneo vs Mapua


MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University and University of the East (UE) entered on Thursday the semifinals of the Nike Summer League's senior division basketball tournament at the Rizal Coliseum.

The La Salle Green Archers dominated FEATI Seahawks, 89-67, while the UE Red Warriors downed San Beda College Red Lions, 91-87, to book their entry to the next round.

But they will have to wait for their semifinal opponents as the other two quarterfinal games are yet to be played on Sunday at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum in Manila.

The Archers will meet the winner between the Ateneo de Manila University and Mapua Institute of Technology, while UE will face the winner between Far Easter University and Lyceum of the Philippines University.

Veteran Archers Rico Maierhofer posted 14 points and 10 rebounds, while JV Casio contributed 12 points, five assists and five steals.

The Seahawks were able to match up against the Green Archers in the first two periods, but lagged behind when teh Archers stepped on the gas in the second half.

It was a different ball game for the Warriors, who dominated the early goings of the match until they watched the Red Lions erasd an 18-point deficit.

But the Warriors had enough steam in the last period to oust the Lions, the NCAA defending champions.

GAMES SUNDAY
(Rizal Memorial Coliseum)
2 p.m. -- FEU vs. Lyceum
4 p.m. -- Ateneo vs. Mapua

THERE IS AN AIR of invincibility to Far Eastern University deep into the preseason.

But Tamaraws’ coach Glen Capacio chose to play it safe when asked about their chances against Lyceum Sunday in the 4th Nike Summer League quarterfinals at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

“We’re not taking them lightly; They (Pirates) wouldn’t be here if they aren’t playing very well,” said Capacio, whose Tamaraws swept their seven-game assignment in the elimination round.

Lyceum coach Bonnie Tan vowed to put up a tough stand against the Tamaraws, who will parade three rookies in Robert Kave from Papua New Guinea, Marc Romero and Gian Macazo.

The Pirates and the Mapua Cardinals, who will take on the Ateneo Eagles in the second game, are actually standing in the way of an all-UAAP semifinals.

Reigning titlist De La Salle and UE clinched the first two Final Four berths after downing Feati University, 89-67, and San Beda, 91-87, respectively.

GAMES WEDNESDAY (PhilSports Arena)
2 p.m.—UE vs. Far Eastern
4 p.m.— Ateneo vs. La Salle

MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University found its murderous touch just as Lyceum of the Philippines lost its cool.

The Tamaraws escaped the upset ax with a hard-earned 88-75 victory over the Pirates Sunday in a fight-marred quarterfinal match in the 4th Nike Summer League at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

The FEU Tamaraws, still undefeated in eight games, battle the University of the East Warriors for a place in the finals at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City on Wednesday.

In the second game, Ateneo de Manila University forged a semifinal showdown with rival De La Salle University following an 81-76 trouncing of the Mapua Institute of Technology Cardinals.

Nonoy Baclao posted 16 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to help set up another pre-season Ateneo-La Salle duel. The Archers beat the Eagles, 78-72, in overtime Saturday in the Fil-Oil Invitational tournament.

The Lyceum Pirates seemed poised for a reversal after outscoring the Tamaraws, 27-13, in the third period to forge a 73-73 tie.

But the Pirates lost their momentum after Leopoldo Santiago was ejected for throwing a punch at FEU guard Benedict Fernandez.

The Tamaraws’ rookie Robert Kave from Papua New Guinea was also banished from the game as he left the bench at the height of the melee.

Veteran Mac Baracael put the finishing touches on the win, scoring six of his game-high 23 points in a closing 15-2 blast.

Marlon Adolfo, JR Cawaling and Fernandez joined hands for 35 points for the Tamaraws, last year’s UAAP second placers behind the Archers.

“We didn’t play good defense against Lyceum,” said FEU coach Glen Capacio. “We have to improve if we want to beat UE.”

Daphne Lansang and Victor Medina paced the Pirates with 15 and 13 points, respectively.

Eagles thwart Archers, face Warriors in final
By Joey Villar
Thursday, June 12, 2008
www.philstar.com


Ateneo used one big scoring spurt in the second quarter then clamped down on defense in the second half as it blasted an undermanned La Salle side, 70-60, yesterday to seal a title showdown with University of the East in the Nike Summer League at the Philsports Arena.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini powered his way to 20 points while Chris Tiu tossed in 17, including eight points in the second period that set the tone for the romp.

“He really wanted to play against La Salle even though he’s hurting,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black of Tiu.

Playing with an injured leg, Tiu waxed hot early as he sparked a tearing 24-2 run in the second period that turned an 8-18 deficit into a 32-20 Ateneo lead at the turn.

Earlier, UE leaned on its shock troopers as it turned back Far Eastern U, 74-66, to advance to the finals.

James Martinez drilled in 15 points while Marcy Arellano scattered 13 but it was the pair of Fhadzmir Bandaying and Rudy Lingganay who made things happen in the second half where they combined for 13 points to power the Warriors to the victory.

The Eagles and the Warriors dispute the crown on Sunday, also at Philsports.

The Archers, behind the lightning-quick LA Revilla, clawed back in the fourth quarter as the rookie out of San Beda drove past taller defenders to move La Salle to within four, 52-56 with over five minutes remaining in the contest.

But Al-Hussaini took over and scored half of Ateneo’s last 14 points to finish off the injury-riddled La Salle crew.

“It’s hard to win with a depleted line-up,” said La Salle mentor Franz Pumaren.

La Salle rested the injured JV Casio and Fil-Bahraini Bader Malabes while Simon Atkins pulled a hamstring minutes into the game.

But Ateneo also drew a solid effort from Ryan Buenafe, last year’s NCAA juniors MVP from San Sebastian, who had 11 points, four rebounds, four assists and four steals.

“He (Buenafe) is just great, he’s not a typical rookie,” said Black.

GAMES FRIDAY
2 p.m. Adamson vs. UST (women’s finals)
4 p.m. SSC-R vs. LSGH (juniors’ finals)

MANILA, Philippines—It was a pre-season game that meant so much to Chris Tiu.

Ateneo de Manila University’s ace gunner shrugged off an injury to power the Eagles to a morale-boosting 70-60 victory over rival De La Salle University Wednesday night in the semifinals of the 4th Nike Summer League at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

“He wasn’t supposed to play because of the injury but because it was an Ateneo-La Salle game, he played,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black of Tiu, who showed little signs of a hurting leg in sparking a furious 24-2 second-quarter run that put the Eagles on their way to a title match with University of the East.

The UE Warriors waxed hot from beyond the arc while Far Eastern University’s guns fell silent in the second half for a 74-66 victory in the first game.

With the Eagles trailing 10-18 early in the second period, Tiu hit eight straight points, highlighted by back-to-back triples, before center Rabeh Al-Hussaini took over with his own 10-0 blast that helped Ateneo to a 32-20 buffer at halftime.

The Archers, last year’s champions, cut the lead to 59-55 on a fastbreak lay-up by rookie guard LA Revilla with 3:32 left. But their comeback hopes were dashed by a Jai Reyes triple, an Al-Hussaini putback and a twinner by Eric Salamat that gave the Eagles a 68-56 cushion with two minutes remaining.

“I told the players to just play good defense,” said Black.

Al-Hussaini finished with 20 points and seven rebounds, while Tiu, who sat out the Eagles’ last two games because of injury, added 17 markers and three steals.

The Eagles’ victory, which comes three weeks before the first Ateneo-DLSU UAAP game on July 6, evened the 2008 rivalry at one win apiece. La Salle subdued Ateneo, 78-72, in overtime in the Fil-Oil Invitational Cup Saturday.

Earlier, James Martinez shot 14 points, including three triples in the first five minutes of the third quarter that fuelled the Warriors comeback from a 31-34 halftime deficit.

The FEU Tamaraws couldn’t buy a basket during a five-minute stretch in the third period, while the Warriors nailed five triples, two coming from junior guard Fhadzmir Bandaying that stretched the UE lead to 59-44.

Staglets bag juniors crown; Lady Falcons champs


Judging from how San Sebastian College-Recoletos Staglets played in the finals of the 2008 Nike Summer League, they can still dominate the coming National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) basketball season.

The Staglets won in lopsided fashion outplaying fellow NCAA member La Salle-Greenhills, 94-79, Friday to win their second straight title in the NSL at the Philsports Arena.

San Sebastian thwarted a slow start with excellent pressure defense finishing the first quarter with a 22-13 lead after the Greenies scored the first four points en route to an early 8-5 lead.

"Medyo gigil lang yung mga bata noong umpisa pero after nila naka-adjust sa depensa, tuluy-tuloy na sila," said San Sebastian coach Raymond Valenzona.

"I told the boys we can't get our offense going until we establish our defense," added Valenzona.

Almond Vosotros finished with 14 points to cap off his tournament after winning the Most Valuable Player honors.

Big man Arvie Bringas had a game-high 27 points and 16 rebounds while wily guard Joseph Gusi had 17 points for the Staglets. Marco Cam also had 12 points and nine rebounds, who will be vying for their fourth straight title in the coming 84th season of the NCAA.

"We are ready for the NCAA," said Valenzona.

The Staglets were never threatened in the game after their slow start. Gusi brought the lead to 24 points--the highest of the game--on a lay-up to give the Staglets a 65-41 lead in the third.

The Staglets were also motivated after they lost to the Greenies in the finals in the other preseason tournament weeks back.

"We prepared for a week for this game. Hindi kami puwede matalo ng dalawang beses sa kanila," said Valenzona.

Mikee Reyes finished with 22 points while Marvin Maraiois had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Greenies.

La Salle-Greenhills came to within 11 points, 86-75, with only 1:43 left, but time just was not on its side for this one.

Vosotros was also included in the juniors Mythical Five along with Mikee Reyes, Martin Reyes, Gusi, and Bringas.

Adamson University, meanwhile, secured the women's title beating defending champion University of Santo Tomas, 73-61.

The Lady Falcons scored back-to-back baskets to end the first half ahead, 36-33. They continued to silent the Tigresses' offense to start the third clustering six straight points to take a 42-33 lead.

"This is a team effort. Ito ang team na walang star player pero maganda ang linalaro as a team," said Adamson coach Emelia Vega.

MVP Kat Sandel tallied 15 points to complement Daphnie Tecson's 17 markers for the Lady Falcons, who avenged their loss to the Tigresses--their lone defeat--during the group stage.

More importantly, UST's Marichu Bacaro was neutralize by the Lady Falcons' defense. She scored 11 points but shot only three-of-15 from the field.

"Talagang focus namin sa depensa si Bacaro. Kahit iba na ang umiskor, basta mapigilan namin siya," Vega added.

Analyn Almazan scored 11 points and grabbed 20 rebounds while Anna Buendia had 11 points for the Lady Falcons.

Nikki Leonardo led the Tigresses with 13 points as teammate Rem Buenacosa chipped in 12 points and 10 rebounds.

In the women's battle-for-third, De La Salle beat Philippine College of Criminology, 63-52.

Members of the women's Mythical Five were Sandel, Bacaro, Buenacosa, Almazan, and Katrina Garcia of PCCR.

The scores:

Lady Falcons unseat Tigresses; Staglets prevail

GAMES SUNDAY (PhilSports Arena)
1 p.m.—Far Eastern vs. La Salle
Awards rites
3 p.m.—UE vs. Ateneo

ADAMSON AND SAN SEBASTIAN boosted their stock heading into the coming varsity season as they captured the women’s and juniors titles, respectively, in the Nike Summer League at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

The Lady Falcons drew 17 points from Daphne Tecson and put up a tough defensive stand in the second half to dethrone University of Santo Tomas Tigresses with a come-from-behind 73-61 victory.

Center Arvie Bringas threw his weight around for 27 points and 16 rebounds as the Staglets sent a warning shot to their NCAA rivals with a 94-79 rout of La Salle Green Hills in the juniors’ finals.

Almond Vosotros, the reed-thin shooting guard tipped to succeed Ryan Buenafe as the Staglets’ main man, came away with 14 points and was selected tournament Most Valuable Player.

Joseph Gusi, who joined Bringas and Vosotros in the mythical team, added 17 for the Staglets.

Analyn Almazan, who was earlier named to the Mythical Five, poured in 11 points and grabbed 20 rebounds for the Falcons, while tournament MVP Kat Sandel contributed 15.

But Adamson coach Emelia Vega believes it was the Falcons’ defense on top UST gunner Marichu Bacaro that keyed their win, which easily installed them as among the favorites in the new UAAP season. The Falcons limited Bacaro to 11 points on 3-for-15 shooting.

With Tecson and Sandel at the helm, the Lady Falcons broke away from a tight contest in the third period on the way to an unassailable 73-54 advantage with two minutes remaining.

With Almazan and Sandel in the mythical team were Bacaro and UST teammate Remia Buenacosa and Philippine College of Criminology’s Katrina Garcia.

Also part of the juniors’ Mythical Five were LSGH’s Martin Reyes and Mikee Reyes, who led his squad with 22 points.

UE, Ateneo clash for title

www.mb.com.ph


University of the East and Ateneo de Manila clash for the title today in the Nike Summer League basketball tournament at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The championship duel, set at 3 p.m. and will be aired live on Studio 23, is expected to be a preview of what to expect from the two schools in the coming UAAP season.

The Red Warriors earned a finals ticket via a 74-66 win over the Far Eastern University Tamaraws last Wednesday, while the Blue Eagles turned back archrival De La Salle University Green Archers, 70-60, in the other semifinals match.

Both teams are armed with forces to reckon with, promising an intense finale for the league.

"We’re playing competitively almost every day and there’s really no time to spare for practice," UE coach Dindo Pumaren said. "But the thing about that is the team has learned to adjust to different situations against different teams. And they’ve done a good job at that."

The Red Warriors will rely on their Big Three players – James Martinez, Pari Llagas and Marcy Arellano – following consistent performances in two postseason games.

Martinez averages 15 points a game, Llagas has 14.5 markers and Arellano 13.

The Eagles, however, must not be taken lightly as they have not dropped a single game in the tournament.

Go-to guys Rabeh Al-Hussaini, Nonoy Baclao and freshman Ryan Buenafe are slated to match up UE’s main men.

Chris Tiu is also bound to be a vital cog for the Katipunan-based crew.

Tiu hits game-winner as Ateneo bags NSL crown
by Jonas Terrado

http://www.nikebasketball.com.ph/nsl2008/news_read.php?id=173&class=daily

Chris Tiu sank a medium-range jumper from the free-throw spot with 26.8 seconds remaining as Ateneo de Manila University scored the last eight points to snare the 2008 Nike Summer League seniors' division crown with a stunning, 65-64, victory over University of the East last June 15 at the Philsports Arena in Pasig City.

The game-winning shot capped off a thrilling comeback for the Blue Eagles from several deficits and seven-down with more than three minutes left in the game in order to capture their first NSL title.

Ateneo had a strong effort from big man Rabah Al-Hussaini, who poured a double-double performance of 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead his team while Tiu chipped in 11 points and six assists.

“It's a confidence-booster for us heading into the UAAP season,” said Blue Eagles head coach Norman Black. “We did well on defense and took advantage of our height advantage by going inside.”

Down 74-67 with 3:25 to go, the Loyola-based dribblers slowly mount a rally as Al-Hussaini nailed a putback while prized rookie Ryan Buenafe recovered an airball shot by the former for two of his nine points in the match at the 2:17 mark.

After several stops on defense, Ateneo cut the lead to one on two foul shots by Buenafe with 52.4 ticks. On the next possession, UE's Paul Lee threw an errant pass to a cutting James Martinez on the right side of the three-point arc that led to a turnover with 35.8 seconds.

From there, Bacon Austria dribbled from the right wing before feeding a cutting Tiu from the left side to drain the 15-foot attempt against the outstretched arms of a UE defender.

“That was really the play,” Black commented.

The Red Warriors still had a chance to win after the conversion, but Hans Thiele missed a quick basket off a cut before the ball travelled out of bounds with 3.4 seconds to go. After an Ateneo foul, Lee threw a desperate shot on the last second that sailed nowhere to hand Ateneo the championship and 200,000 pesos.

Martinez topscored for the UAAP runners-up with 11 points on 3-for-5 shots from beyond the arc and was the only player for UE to score in double-figures. Lee and Lingganay each contributed nine and eight points while Llagas hauled down 10 boards to end up claiming a second place trophy and 100,000-peso incentive.

It was a disappointing setback for the Dindo Pumaren-coached squad, as his team failed to win their second straight title in their fifth game in six days. They won a preseason tournament yesterday over two-time NCAA champion San Beda College.

While the Blue Eagles were well-rested, they trailed for most of the game as UE rushed to 15-6 start on a Thiele basket before Rudy Lingganay led six straight baskets to help them take a 25-13 advantage after the first period. The Recto-based cagers then took a 37-30 edge on baskets by Pari Llagas and Lee while thwarting mini-runs of their white-clad opponents.

Ateneo's threatened in the third period, slashing the deficit to only 43-41 before UE embarked on an 8-2 run for a 51-43 lead. In the final period, Al-Hussaini scored on a three-point play off Elmer Espiritu's fourth foul with 4:59 left, only for Martinez to uncork a triple for a seven-point spread as the Warriors hit their last basket of the contest.

Despite grabbing the title, Black said his team needs to improve some aspects of their game before UAAP action unfolds next month.

“Our defense was good today but we still need to work on it during practice,” Black stressed.

Guard Eric Salamat was named as the Most Valuable Player of the 2008 edition of the event despite scoring just seven points and dished out two assists in 21 minutes of action in the finals. He was joined in the Mythical Five selection by Llagas, Far Eastern University's Mark Barroca and the De La Salle University duo of Rico Maierhofer and PJ Barua.

Barroca's Tamaraws collected a consolation prize of third place and 75,000 pesos after decking DLSU, 74-65. Riel Cervantes led FEU with 15 points and eight rebounds with Benedict Fernandez and Barroca tallying 13 and 11, respectively.

Maierhofer finished with monster numbers of 19 points and 16 rebounds for the Green Archers with James Mangahas adding 11 markers.

The scores:

Third Place

FEU (74) – Cervantes 15, Fernandez 13, Barroca 11, Sanga 9, Adolfo 9, Cawaling 5, Ramos 4, Cabagnot 4, Alisbo 4, Tanuan 0, Macazo 0, Kave 0, Noundou 0

It's not the scouting of Norman Black but UE just being spent playing back-to-back championships in two days..not even NBA teams plays back-to-back championships..It's just unlucky for UE to have two tournaments that they are playing in have their championships played in consecutive days..

But still kudos to UE they are really the team to watch in the coming UAAP wars..

Eagles nip Warriors for title
By Joey Villar

www.philstar.com


Chris Tiu, doing what he does best, nailed a jumper in the closing seconds as Ateneo pulled off a gripping come-from-behind 65-64 victory over University of the East yesterday to capture the Nike Summer League crown at the Philsports Arena.

Shackled all game long, Tiu used the screens to squeeze himself out of a defensive jam and fired that marginal basket on the top of the key with 26.8 seconds remaining. Then the Eagles watched the Warriors bungle two shots to preserve the lead and the victory worth P200,000 of Nike products.

“That play was really for him and we executed it well,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black, referring to his sweet-shooting guard who has had a number of game-winners for Ateneo in the UAAP.

“We played it as was diagrammed by coach. They gave me screens and I got my shot and it felt good when I released it,” said Tiu.

Defense also proved crucial for the Katipunan-based squad as it scuttled UE’s vaunted fast-paced running game in the second half.

The Warriors, coming off a big victory over the San Beda Red Lions in the final of the Filoil Flying V Pre-season Invitational Saturday, actually had two chances to steal the win in a game they dominated in the first three quarters.

But Hans Thiele, hobbled by foul trouble all game, missed a wide-open lay-up and Paul Lee, who exploded with 24 points, including five triples against San Beda, threw an air ball from 12 feet as the Eagles escaped with the win.

“We played tremendous defense particularly in the fourth quarter,” said Black.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini powered his way to 18 points, hauled down 10 rebounds, and made two assists and a shot block.

It was the second straight game that Tiu and Al-Hussaini came up big after they sizzled with 20 and 17 points, respectively, in Ateneo’s 70-60 win over arch rival and defending UAAP champion La Salle in Wednesday’s semifinals.

Eagles bag title on Tiu jumper

By Cedelf P. Tupas
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 03:39:00 06/16/2008


MANILA, Philippines—Chris Tiu has a penchant for delivering game-turning plays for the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles.

It was no different Sunday as the ace shooting guard nailed the decisive basket in a 64-63 cliffhanger by the Eagles over the University of the East Warriors in the finals of the 4th Nike Summer League at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Moving around the screens of Nonoy Baclao and Rabeh Al-Hussaini before receiving Bacon Austria’s pass, Tiu drained a textbook jumpshot from the top of the key with 26.8 seconds left to give the Eagles their first taste of the lead since 6-5 in the first quarter.

The Warriors blew two chances to reclaim the edge as Hans Thiele, bothered by Baclao’s defense, missed a point-blank jumper with 10 seconds left, before Paul Lee botched a 14-foot jumper just as the buzzer sounded.

The final play characterized the tough-as-nails defense in the final period by the Eagles, who held the Warriors scoreless in the final 3:24.

“This is a big win, a confidence-booster heading into the UAAP season,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black, whose Eagles fell one win short of the UAAP finals last year.

Despite the victory, the former Philippine Basketball Association coach believes the Eagles, who beat De La Salle University in the semifinals Wednesday, still have a lot of work to do to break a six-year title drought in the UAAP.

“Our form is still at 70 percent,” said Black. “Our defense is suspect at times, but it is good that Chris (Tiu) and Rabeh (Al-Hussaini) and Nonoy (Baclao) are playing well.”

Ranged against a UE team playing its second pre-season final match in as many days, Ateneo stormed its way back from a nine-point deficit early in the final quarter to complete a nine-game sweep of the tournament.

The Warriors, who ruled the Filoil Invitational Cup at the expense of San Beda College on Saturday, came out smoking in the opening period, taking a 17-6 cushion in the first seven minutes with James Martinez and Toto Bandaying combining for three triples.

UE settled for a 37-30 buffer at halftime even after shooting 65 percent from the field.

The Warriors, whose main man Marcy Arellano played only five minutes because of a flu, seemed poised for a rare double title weekend when Gino Entone’s jumper stretched the lead, 61-52, with 6:58 left.

Ateneo responded with Yuri Escueta draining a jumper and Al-Hussaini hitting five straight points, including a three-point play off Espiritu’s fifth foul, to trim the gap, 61-64.

Rookie Ryan Buenafe converted his free throws with 52.4 ticks left, before a Paul Lee turnover set the stage for Tiu’s game-winner.

Al-Hussaini finished with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Tiu had 11 points and six assists, while tournament Most Valuable Player Eric Salamat and Baclao combined for 12.

In the first game, Far Eastern University, led by mythical five selection Andy Mark Barroca, salvaged third with a 74-65 decision of 2007 champion La Salle.

The mythical five also included Archers PJ Barua and Rico Maierhofer and UE’s Pari Llagas.

The scores:

First Game

FEU 74—Cervantes 15, Fernandez 13, Barroca 11, Sanga 9, Adolfo 9, Cawaling 5, Cabagnot 4, Alisbo 4, Kave 0, Noundou 0, Tanuan 0, Macazo 0,

Ateneo went to veteran Chris Tiu at crunch time to beat University of the East, 65-64, and rule the 2008 Nike Summer League at the Philsports Arena in Pasig.

The 5-foot-11 Tiu produced the game’s biggest shot – a long jumper with 28 seconds left – as he capped Ateneo’s blazing windup that denied the Warriors a second title in two days.

The Warriors, who captures the Fil-Oil Flying V pre-season tournament Saturday, had a chance to win in the game’s final possession, but were denied by the Eagles’ tough defense.

Trailing, 52-61, midway through the payoff period, Tiu conspired with center Rabah Al-Hussaini, Yuri Escueta and rookie Ryan Buenafe in a 11-3 run to close in at 63-64 with 52.4 seconds remaining.

After a UE turnover, Tiu came through with what turned out to be the winning basket.

The Warriors still had two chances to salvage the win but Hans Thiele and John Paul Lee bungled their attempts that enabled coach Norman Black to heave a big sigh of relief.

"We just took advantage of our size," Black said. "UE is quick, and we have to take the ball inside and played good defense at crunch time."

"Defense will always be our battlecry. We still have a lot of work to do going to the collegiate games but definitely, this win boosted the boys’ confidence for the UAAP," he added.

Al-Hussaini led the Blue Eagles with 18 points and 10 boards while Tiu finished with 11 points.

Also a big help for the Eagles was Buenafe who tallied 9 markers. Eric Salamat, who was later named as the Most Valuable Player in the league, added seven points.

For winning the championship, the Eagles won R200,000 worth of gift certificates from Nike.

The Warriors sorely missed the absence of veteran playmaker Marcy Arellano due to fever.

Only James Martinez managed to post in double figures for the Red Warriors with 11 points.

Lee, who scored 24 points in beating San Beda in the Fil-oil Flying V Pre-Season tournament, was held to just nine points this time.

Salamat led the Mythical Five Selection along with De La Salle’s Rico Maierhofer and PJ Barua, UE’s Pari LLagas, and Far Eastern University’s Mark Anthony Baroca.

The scores:

Ateneo 65 — Al Hussaini 18, Tiu 11, Buenafe 9, Escueta 7, Salamat 7, Baldos 6, Baclao 5, Austria 2, Long 0, Gonzaga 0, Reyes 0, Sumalinog 0, Salva 0, Burke 0, Chua 0.

UE 64 — Martinez 11, Lee 9, Lingganay 8, Espiritu 7, Llagas 7, Thiele 6, Bandaying 6, Zamar 4, Etrone 4,Reyes 2, Tagarda 0, Duran 0, Alabanza 0, Acuna 0, Arellano 0, Acaibar 0, Tiongco 0, Flores 0, Wagas 0.

Quarters: 13-25, 30-37, 47-53, 65-64.
