Tata, could you give us a short walk-through as to what to look forward to in the WNCAA this season?

Who are the top teams?

Who are the top players to watch for?

Who are the up and comers?

I think it would be Lyceum and St Benilde who will be the top contending teams in the season. Both squads are good on paper and on the court plus they have two of the best bigs in Machako (Lyceum) and Salvacion (CSB).

Both teams did well in the preseason with Benilde making it to the quarters of the NSL.

As for the wild card hopefuls, probably EAC and SFACS and I'm not sure but probably RTU as well.

I've seen Machiko play, not bad, strong rebounder, solid post defender, above-average footwork, overwhelmingly one-handed though.

I am intrigued by Salvacion. How tall is she and how does she play? Is she as good as Cassy Tioseco?

May dribbling din si Machiko and could also penetrate on the break.

As for Salvacion, she's quite tall maybe around 5-10 payat nga lang. She can dribble and score on inside plays.

I guess her liabilities are that she has a tendency of missing easy putbacks.

Lyceum bags 2 WNCAA crowns

Last updated 08:04am (Mla time) 10/16/2007

MANILA, Philippines -- Lyceum of the Philippines University downed College of St. Benilde, 61-57, Sunday to put away the Senior A basketball crown of the 38th WNCAA season at the San Sebastian College gym.

The Lady Pirates thus made it a double kill after having topped the volleyball competition Friday, sweeping St. Francis of Assisi College for the Senior A plum -- their eighth in the country’s only tri-level league for women.

The Lady Pirates protected a 58-57 lead in the final 1:38 by silencing their opponents the rest of the way with their sticky defense.

“All our hard work paid off,” said rookie coach Aileen Lebornio. “Credit goes to my players and to our school officials for supporting us all the way.”

April Diane Lualhati topscored for the Lady Pirates with 17 points, followed by RP team member Machiko Matsuno who had 16.

The 5-foot-9 Matsuno was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.
