JRU has to review their Plays again. The "Live or Die with the 3pt shot" game plan is taking it's negative toll in the final crucial stretch of the season.


True. For today, they're just gonna have a run through and shooting lang daw so light lang practice today. :)


Anyway. IMHO, assured na JRU sa F4 (either 2 or 3 position) and from there, all out na talaga.

JRU will be an awesome team next season inspite of loosing Nocom and Pradas. You will have probably the most dominant big man in the NCAA in James Ryan Sena. Sena will be more menacing next season plus the backcourt duo of Marc Cagoco and John Wilson.

Though they are still working on some rough edges of his game, his willingness to learn could be a factor that might give them their first title since 1972.

Joe came from the same village that produced Nchotu John Njei, the Heavy Bombers’ energetic rookie who almost spoiled the Red Lions’ third consecutive title.

“Yes, he’ll be playing next year,” Vanguardia said. “He is not yet a polished player, but he’s getting better everyday. We’ll be losing two key players and with him, hopefully, we can win whatever we lost this year.”



Red Lions defense of its MBT titke might be in jeopardy what now with the probable inclusion of 7-0 Joe Etame and a solid lineup of JRU Bombers in which only Maui Pradas and Nucum will be out due to graduation. JRU is a potent team to contend with with vastly improved Sena at the slow, workhorse Hayes, mercurial Wison , dependable Mark Cagoco and defensive muscleman Njei still in its fold.

NCAA Teams Now Considering Tapping Foreign Players

10/01/2008

By Julius Manicad

It pays to have a dominating foreign-bred player like Nigerian Sam Ekwe, the man behind San Beda College’s dynasty in the NCAA.

Now, other teams in the oldest collegiate athletic meet are giving strong considerations to tapping foreign players to give the Red Lions a pretty good fight.

Jose Rizal University, losing finalist in the just-concluded 84th edition of NCAA has tapped a lanky Cameroonian center who could fill the void left by Jayson Nocom and Maui Pradas.

According to Heavy Bombers’ head coach Ariel Vanguardia, Etame Joe is a legitimate seven-footer who could add depth in the Bombers frontline.

Though they are still working on some rough edges of his game, his willingness to learn could be a factor that might give them their first title since 1972.

Joe came from the same village that produced Nchotu John Njei, the Heavy Bombers’ energetic rookie who almost spoiled the Red Lions’ third consecutive title.

“Yes, he’ll be playing next year,” Vanguardia said. “He is not yet a polished player, but he’s getting better everyday. We’ll be losing two key players and with him, hopefully, we can win whatever we lost this year.”

The Red Lions, whose three-year fortune revolved around the 6-foot-8, defense-minded Ekwe, meanwhile, is set to activate a versatile American, Sudan Daniel, who is said to be an electrifying offensive machine.

“Well, Sudan has a different type of game compared to Sam,” San Beda coach Frankie Lim said, referring to his 19-year-old gem which he recruited while the Lions were in a three-week training in the United States.

“Sam is really, really strong inside and I don’t think anyone in this league could stop him once he steps on the paint. But with Sudan, I think, we can expect outside shots, blocked shots, rebounds… everything.”

Aside from San Beda and JRU, other schools are reportedly scrambling to scout foreign players to power their respective rosters.

Based on its rules, the NCAA allows each team to have two foreign players on its lineup. Foreigners, however, should be legitimate student-athletes, had already gained a two-year residency and should be field in sparingly by their respective coaches.

Far Eastern University looked very formidable as they disposed of Jose Rizal University 84-75 in the ongoing Fil Oil Flying V Sweet 16 tournament at the Arena.

Mark Barroca and JR Cawaling got the Tamaraws off to a red hot start as they went up 17-5 right on the first period. With the always tough FEU defense at its finest the Heavy Bombers struggled and failed to reach double digits in the first period, looking up at a 9-24 deficit at the end of One.

JRU however regained some of their bearings in the second period, fighting back behind shock trooper Jester Apinan. Apinan went to the transition attack early, as he used his long-limbed 6-foot-2 frame and quick springs to take it strong to the basket before the FEU defenses could set up. Kenyan Nchotu Njei also got into the act, disrupting the guard play of FEU with his tough defense and freakish athleticism. Njei played the passing lanes and took away the FEU transition attack by getting down quickly on defense and deflecting outlet passes.

JRU head coach Ariel Vanguardia, putting on his usual hyper histrionics, was tossed from the game after getting back to back technical fouls late in the first half. Elder JRU fans seated behind the Heavy Bombers bench were livid and throwing all sorts of vitriol at the game officials; one of them even hurled a water bottle onto the court but was not removed from the venue by the venue security people.

Come the second half the Heavy Bombers went into high gear behind Apinan, Marc Cagoco, Jayson Nocom and JR Sena. JRU's starters had a lackluster first half and now went on a tear to bring the Heavy Bombers within 46-47. Sena got going from his favorite spot on the left box, Nocom picked up some good second-chance opportunities, Cagoco and Apinan slashed right into the gut of the Tamaraws' defense. FEU however responded behind veteran post players Riel Cervantes and Mac Baracael to separate themselves from JRU 54-46. "I told the boys to just settle down and follow our game plan. Kaya nakahabol ang JRU kasi hindi na namin nasunod ang game plan namin ung third quarter," explained FEU head coach Glenn Capacio.

It was still very much a nip and tuck affair in the payoff fourth period as the two teams exchanged baskets and miscues. But Barroca and Benedict Fernandez conspired with Cervantes and Baracael on the high-low plays and the high pick and rolls to put FEU on top 80-71 time down to less than three minutes. Barroca and Fernandez nailed a couple of pressure freethrows to seal the outcome in the end-game.

Barroca led all scorers with 19 points to go with eight rebounds and two steals. Baracael added 10 markers and 10 boards of his own.

Apinan was a surprise scoring leader for JRU with 14 points, while Cagoco and Nocom had 13 markers each.

Here are the Final 4 matches for the FMC Open: In Group A it will be San Sebastian versus Jose Rizal B; in Group B it will be Far Eastern versus Jose Rizal A. This marks the first time in a long while that the A and B Teams of one school are in the Final 4 of the FMC. The Stags and the Tamaraws enjoy twice-to-beat advantages as they both swept their respective groups.

Ariel Vanguardia coaches both teams, which brings up an interesting question: If BOTH JRU teams advance to the Finals, which side will Vanguardia coach? :-X

I think the JRU Heavy Bombers will be the heavy favorites to win the next season's NCAA championship. Last season, they took the SBC Red Lions with Pong, Ogie and Sam to a winner-take-all championship game. Next year, those three will be out of the RL lineup, while they remain relatively intact. And they will be reinforced with an import of their own.

If they remain as hungry as last year, next season could finally be their year .....

Ateneo De Manila had to count on a last-second blunder by JRU to preserve a nail-biting 77 - 76 victory over the weekend.

Ateneo had a couple of 10-point leads and were even up by as much as 12 at one point midway through the third period at 47-35, but they just could not break off from JRU.

With the starters unable to get much done, center Justin Chua and guard Tonino Gonzaga came off the bench to provide much needed energy for the Blue Eagles. Chua scored 11 points off the bench while Gonzaga had six of his own and held off ball-hog John Wilson.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini, once again deciding that basketball might be better served by being a whiner, was called for a technical for flopping in a low post mosh with James Sena. This came on the heels of a previous flop against John Montemayor, for which Al-Hussaini had already been warned.

Jai Reyes, a man who might be feeling the pressure of being the starting pointguard for the reigning UAAP champion this early, once again had a messy game with 10 turnovers, including losing the ball in the last 17 seconds of play that allowed JRU to come within 76-77. Bad form for a pointguard.

Fortunately for the Blue Eagles the Heavy Bombers lost track of the time and refused to foul even when head coach Ariel Vanguardia was already screaming out instructions to do so from their bench. Eric Salamat simply dribbled away the time and preserved the W for Ateneo.

Salamat led Ateneo with 16 points while Sena had 14 and nine boards for JRU.

Sena and Wilson had just come from a PBL game and just caught up with their team at the Arena. Cameroonian center Etame Joe did not play.

Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers
2008 record: 9-5 (tied for second place; lost to San Beda College in the finals)
Head coach: Ariel Vanguardia (4th season)
Additions: Joel Gabriel, Etame Joe, Adoe Salazar
Subtractions: Alex Almario, Jayson Nocom, Maui Pradas
Holdovers: Jhe Agas, Jecskter Apinan, Jay-r Bulangis, Marc Cagoco, Marvin Hayes, Raycon Kabigting, Derico Lopez, Nate Matute, John Montemayor, Nchotu John Njei, JR Sena, John Wilson

Background: After a lethargic start to the season, Jose Rizal zoomed to the top of the standings after an eight-game winning streak. An equally rocky end to the eliminations saw JRU go through a rigorous extra two games to book a twice-to-beat Final Four advantage, one it made use of before taking San Beda to the limit in the finals.

Key changes: Stalwarts Nocom and Pradas are the only key losses for the Heavy Bombers, who’ve advanced to the Final Four the past two seasons after winning a combined six games in 2005 and 2006.

Among the newbies, expect Joe to make his presence felt, particularly in the low block where he’ll be required to swat shots and help Hayes and Sena in the rebounding department. The Cameroonian suffered an injury to his knee over the summer, so a question mark hangs over his fitness level. The full rotation, though, is intact and experienced.

Outlook: Boom or bust. The Heavy Bombers have the tools to go all the way and capture their first title since 1972. They’re deep and loaded in all positions. This current unit also has experienced what it’s like to play in front of a packed house care of last season’s trip to the finals, so expect Vanguardia’s wards to be more confident and poised down the stretch.

Chemistry is also something that should bode well for JRU. This is Cagoco, Hayes, Sena and Wilson’s fourth year together. All of them have vastly improved since entering the program in Season 82. The familiarity ideally should translate into better decision-making skills on the hardwood, something that the Bombers have been groping for in years past.

Prognosis: Self-belief is something that JRU needs if it is to win it all in 2009. The problems the past two years haven’t been lack of talent or what not, but more of mental toughness. If these are sorted out this campaign, Jose Rizal University has a more than decent chance of taking home the championship.

After missing finals, JRU replaces coach

Jose Rizal University and its basketball coach Ariel Vanguardia have parted ways after a less than stellar season for the university who made it to the Final Four but not the finals of the NCAA this year.

JRU sources who requested anonymity said school management did not renew the contract of Vanguardia which expired after the NCAA championship series won by San Sebastian College.

Vanguardia and some JRU officials reportedly met and the coach was informed that his contract was not being renewed.

Vanguardia had coach the Heavy Bombers the past four years and nearly brought the school the coveted championship when it made the finals last year only to lose against San Beda in Game 3 of the series. Vanguardia also steered JRU to three Fional Four appearances.

With hopes high of making it to the finals again, the Bombers were beaten in the semifinals this year by San Sebastian, disappointing JRU officials who had hoped to end a title drought stretching 37 years.

“The meeting between him (Vanguardia) and Paul Supan (JRU representative to the NCAA Management Committee) was held Thursday last week. It was so quick that it took only three minutes to finish,” said the source. “Mr. Supan did not give any reason why Vanguardia was not given an extension.”

The source said that Vanguardia, who replaced Cris Calillan in 2006, was deeply surprised by the decision.

“He was deeply affected. For the past four years, coach Ariel has been able to bring JRU to the Final Four and last year sa championship. Masyado lang mabilis yung desisyon,” the sources said.

Supan could not be reach for comment.

Vanguardia started to make heads turn after leading JRU to shocking wins in the 2006 Champions League. As a wild card, the Bombers beat the then UAAP champion University of Santo Tomas.

JRU, Vanguardia Part Ways

by Christian Soler

THE management of Jose Rizal University has formally relieved Ariel Vanguardia of his coaching duties after a four-year stint with the team.

Vanguardia, who was brought in just a week before the start of the 2006 season following the resignation of Cris Calilan, said he signed a two-year deal just this year but was discharged because of a clause in that contract.

“The clause stated that I’d be relieved of my duties if I failed to make a return trip to the finals,” he said.

Under the tutelage of Vanguardia, the Heavy Bombers turned their fortunes around in the country’s oldest collegiate basketball league. After going 6-22 in 2004 and 2005, JRU tapped the services of the Calamba native, who helped steer the Shaw unit to three consecutive Final Four stints, including a finals appearance in Season 84, where it was a win away from ending the longest active title drought in the league today.

All in all, the De La Salle University alum compiled a 40-27 (.597) record. What made his stint with JRU extra special, though, was his contribution to the careers of his key players.

“From two consecutive last-placed finishes, I was able to help transform the school into one of the most feared teams in the league. I am proud of my players. Marc [Cagoco] was a discard of St. Francis of Assisi, John Wilson did not make the cut in San Sebastian. Je [Agas] played for the Stags in high school but was cut, too. Jayson Nocom was a reject from De Ocampo Memorial College, and even Marvin Hayes was cut from National University’s Team B. No one wanted them. I’m glad I was able to become a part of their lives,” Vanguardia told inboundpass.com.

In response to speculations that a couple of his players were involved in game-fixing this year, the 37-year-old tactician said, “I believe in all my players. I’ll stand by them and won’t point a single finger at anyone. It just wasn’t meant to be [this year].”

Assistant coaches Lito Vergara, John Aquino and Franco Atienza were also relieved of their responsibilities. None of them will be taking the coaching helm for the Heavy Bombers in their Philippine Collegiate Champions League stint. As the NCAA’s third-placed team, JRU already has a spot in the Sweet 16, which commences on November 23.

Vergel Meneses, a JRU alum, is expected to fill the coaching void in Mandaluyong City.

Currently, Vanguardia is applying for the vacant National University coaching job. “I’ve joined the bandwagon for the NU job. With solid support, the Bulldogs have so much potential. In fact, I see the 2006 JRU team in NU today. I think it would be a perfect opportunity for me to settle unfinished business with NU.”

************************

To tell the truth, Vanguardia's record is a hard act to follow. One can only hope, that Meneses will at least be able to approximate that record.

Then again, after seeing what Ato Agustin did with the Stags, then anything is possible.

09 Aerial Voyager is now Head Coach of the Heavy Bombers
by Mia Domingo
126 Views | 3 Comments After missing this year’s NCAA Finals, the Jose Rizal University administration decided to make a major coaching change.

By letting go of Coach Ariel Vanguardia, JRU has announced in a formal press conference hosted by the school administration held within the school grounds that, Vergel Meneses, known as the Aerial Voyager in the pros, will take over the helm as head coach of the JRU Heavy Bombers starting Nov 9, 2009.

“The management wanted to take a new direction. We wanted a fresh face hopefully to end our now 38-year title drought” said JRU Athletics Director Paul Supan.

Vergel Meneses was the PBA’s Most Valuable Player in 1995 while playing for Sunkist. Meneses has also won Best Player of the conference awards three straight times, is a two-time Mythical Team member, has an All-Star MVP Award, 3 PBA titles with 7 PBA finals appearances.

Dr. Vincent K. Fabella, assisted by Athletics Director Paul Supan, said that the former JRU standout has signed a three-year contract and will be including able assistants Ricky Alcantara, former FedEx colleague Vic Escudero, former Sunkist colleague Jun Chiongco and Nat Gregorio.

Other notable figures in the Heavy Bombers fold include former team trainer of the DLSU Green Archers in the UAAP, Dan Rose, and Meneses’ long-time mentor Derrick Pumaren who will act as team consultant.

“I am very excited about this job. This is my first head coaching job. I want to thank JRU for this opportunity. I want this team to be more of a defensive team. We’ll work on the rotation, ball movement and we’ll try to instill our own system slowly”, Coach Meneses said about his eventual return to his Alma Mater

NCAA MVP Wilson quits JRU
By FRANCIS SANTIAGO
November 10, 2009, 7:05pm


In sympathy with basketball coach Ariel Vanguardia, who was fired by Jose Rizal University recently, the school’s best player and this year’s NCAA Most Valuable Player John Wilson will forego his final year with the Bombers.

The 6-foot-1 Wilson, who set the league’s scoring record of 48 points early this year, said he was hurt by the school’s decision to sack Vanguardia – his coach of three years.

“Partly, iyon ang rason (of passing up his final year with JRU). Medyo nagtatampo ako (with JRU management),” Wilson said. “Coach Ariel gave us 16-4 win-loss record. And that was the first time the school achieved that feat.”

The school sacked Vanguardia after he failed to bring the Bombers back to finals this year although the Bombers made it to the Final Four and lost to eventual champion San Sebastian in the semifinals.

Last year, under Vanguardia, the Bombers made it to the finals but lost to the San Beda in their best-of-three championship series, which extended the school's title drought to 38 years.

Although Vanguardia, who also steered the Bombers to three Final Four appearances, had better than average record in his four years as coach, the school’s decision to replace him showed the urgency placed by the university to end the title drought.

Vanguardia was replaced by ex-PBA star and former King Bomber Vergel Meneses the other day.

“I love my school pero sabi ko nga, we have to move on with the changes,” Wilson said.

Wilson averaged 19.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals during the NCAA's 18-game elimination round this year.

Madalas magamit ang word na sympathy sa topic regarding JRU, Coach AV and Wilson. Sympathy ba talaga? I think wala naman ginawang masama ang JRU kay Coach AV. Ang maling word kasi na ginamit is coach AV was fired by JRU, pero mali yun. FYI.... coach AV's original contract was 3 years only, na extend na nga siya ng 1 year pero nakiusap daw si coach AV na gawin 2 years with a clause na kailangan pumasok sa finals para magkaroon ng another year extention. In my opinion, nasunod lang ang kasunduan nila. coach AV got what he wanted pero nandun nga sa clause na dapat umabot ng finals which hindi niya nagawa. Parang pinalalabas kasi sa press ay mali ang ginawa ng JRU management. I think the proper term should be "not extended" rather than "fired"

One more thing, about Wilson na gumaling kay coach AV. Im not so sure about this too. Gano katagal ba si Wilson naglaro sa Toyota team ni AV. I know he was part of the Toyota Team na pinakamabigat ang line up pag sa "papel", players include Sena, Faundo, Hayes, Casio, Walsham, Mangahas brothers, Jazul, Wilson, Cabahug, etc. Pero di ba sila din yung unang na eliminate nun? Before that conference started, ang ganda pa ng PR ni AV nun kasi mga players daw nya puro gutom sa championship. DLSU at JRU ang runner up sa UAAP at NCAA respectively that time kaya malaki daw ang chance nila mag champion sa PBL.

Ginagamit ba si Wilson nung nasa Toyota siya? I know na maganda laro ni Wilson nung napunta siya ng Harbor Center. Just like Cabahug na bigla rin pumutok nung na trade siya sa ibang team. Parang mas gumaling sila nung nawala sila kay AV. After that Harbor stint, naisip siguro ni AV kung nagawa niya sa PBL yun, baka magawa rin ni Wilson sa NCAA.

Last thing, cant understand the thinking of Wilson of not playing his last year of eligibility to sympathized with AV. si AV ba nagbabayad ng scholarship nya? sa bahay ni AV ba siya nakatira at dun kumakaen araw araw? ang mga cash allowance at bonus ba nya galing sa bulsa ni AV? Ganito ba ang gusto mong player sa PBA kung team owner ka sa PBA or even NBA? kung magpalit ang management ng coach, ayaw mo na maglaro? Diba ang College level ay parang preparation para sa higher level or professionals?

sayang si John Wilson, nagpadala sa mga sulsol ng nakapaligid sa kanya, malaking factor sana sya sa JRU campaign next year sa NCAA. pero hindi porke't superstar ka at naging MVP ng NCAA dapat matuto rin syang rumespeto. sa ginawa nyang pag-announce at paki-simpatya kay Vanguardia pra nya na rin binastos yun coach na pumalit kay Vanguardia na walang iba kundi si Vergel "Aerial Voyager" Meneses na isang tunay na superstar, MVP at iniidolo ng mga players.
now gusto nyang bumalik sa JRU, palagay nyo sa ginawa nya dapat ba syang tangapin ni idol Meneses? dream on Wilson, ang NCAA ay unang hakbang palang yan! san kba now naglalaro? sa PBL -Toyota Otis- ok pro superstar kba sa team? sa Smart Gilas? tinangihan ka nga ni Eala at Toroman eh.
Wilson sinayang mo ang pagkakataon makasama sa isang team (as coach) si the Aerial Voyager.
so farewell John sana kung gaano kataas ang lipad mo ngayon ay wag maging kataas at bilis ng pagbagsak mo.

Respetuhin na lang natin ang gusto ni Wilson..san ba siya sumikat sa team ni vanguardia so dun siya syempre maki simpatiya.. iba yung magaling kang player kesa magaling kang coach.. oo magaling na player si meneses pero wala pa siyang naipakita as a coach.. malaking kaibahan si meneses kesa kay ato agustin.. si ato matagal ng nag coach bago siya pumasok sa baste.. si meneses kumbaga it remains to be seen pa yan..



so bakit kailangan nya pa dumisplay-display tuwing may ensayo JRU? pangatawan nya yun pakiki-simpatya na kay Vanguardia. balita ko nga nakiki-usap yan si wilson makabalik eh.



Balita ko nga sa dorm pa ng JRU umuuwi at sa canteen din kumakaen ang batang ito. Sa tingin niyo ok ba ang pag iisip niya? If he really made that press release, that he wants out of JRU, does he still have the nerve to eat and stay at JRU??

ang hirap kay Wilson, kung gusto nya bumalik sa team bakit hindi si coach Meneses ang kausapin nya! hindi yun kung kani-kanino sya nagpapasabi na gusto nyang bumalik sa JRU. up to now may ere prin sya sa katawan, ano nba sya ngayon? now hindi na sya maglalaro sa NCAA at wala pang PBL (na hindi nman sya sikat) saan sya ngayon pupulutin. siguro paki-usapan pa sa manager ng mga team sa Liga Pilipinas. pero ito na ang simula ng pagbagsak nya and after a year siguro tuluyan na syang mawawala sa mundo ng basketball.

It was an all-NCAA day last Sunday at the FEU Gym in Manila for the ongoing Fr Martin Cup.

Raycon Kabigting had the hottest hand all day as he went 7-10 from trey range to lead Jose Rizal past Mapua B 79-62. The Heavy Bombers were all over the B Cardinals in this one. Kabigting finished with a day-high 23 points while Nchotu Njei added 17, for JRU's first victory in two starts.

Powerhouse San Beda walloped Pereptual Help 73-53 for their second straight victory. Opening up the game at 10-0, the boys from Mendiola cruised all the way to the W. Jake Pascual led the Red Lions with 13 points.

Mapua A made up for the earlier loss of their B Team to JRU by smacking down Arellano B 76-49. The A Cardinals were so dominant they limited the normally prolific B Chiefs to only six points in the first period while opening up the scoring parade on transition and in the lane.

Almost-an-NCAA guest team Lyceum had a rousing start to their FMC campaign by beating Emilio Aguinaldo 63-53. It was EAC's second straight loss. Flor Guevarra led the Pirates with 14 markers.

In deference to the Christmas season, FMC Secretary General Joey Lim has declared that all December 20 games have been postponed and shall be reset for a later date.

Bombers down Falcons

People's Tonight
Tuesday, 12 January 2010

http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php/sports/688-bombers-down-falcons


JOSE Rizal University rode on the buzzer-beating shot by John Nchotu Njei to escape with a thrilling 51-49 win over Adamson University in the 5th Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the FEU gym in Morayta, Manila.

Njei, a 6-0 recruit from Cameroon, hauled down the rebound after a miss by a teammate and then hit a short but difficult jumper from the left side against two Adamson defenders to clinch the win.

The win -- the second in three matches -- enabled the Vergel Meneses-mentored Heavy Bombers to vault into third place in Group B behind NCAA runner-up San Beda and Arellano University.

“The players are still adjusting to our new system, but they are doing very well right now,” said Meneses, who was appointed to handle the team only two months ago.

“I’m satisfied with the way they are playing, although there are still rooms for improvement,” added Meneses, known as the “Aerial Voyager” during his PBA days.

Actually, Njei’s heroics came after Adamson’s 6-6 African recruit Austin Manyara tied the score for the last time at 49-all with 15 seconds left.

Decoy Lopez scattered 18 points for the Mandaluyong-based team, followed by Njei with 13, and Raycon Kabigting with 10.

Marvin Hayes, Adoe Salazar, Ildefonso Bulangis Jr. and John Allen Montemayor also played well for the Heavy Bombers, whose coaching staff also include Ricky Alcantara, Vic Escudero, Jun Chiongco and Nat Gregorio.

Other notable personalities in the Heavy Bombers’ fold are businessman-sportsman Alex Wang, team manager; Derrick Pumaren, team consultant; and Dan Rose, conditioning coach/trainer .

Manyara finished with 12 points for the Falcons.

In other games, NCAA champion San Sebastian College demolished AMA Computer University, 72-50; Letran College edged Informatics, 74-72; Mapua crushed Emilio Aguinaldo College, 81-56, University of Perpetual Help downed Arellano University, 71-68; University of the Philippines defeated Centro Escolar University, 76-56, and Lyceum of the Philippines University outplayed Arellano-B, 64-60.

The tournament is being organized by Aric Del Rosario, Joey Lim and Edmundo “Ato” Badolato.

Bombers stuns Tamaraw

People's Tonight
January 21, 2010


FIRST, it was John Nchotu Njei.
Now, it’s the turn of Marvin Hayes to shine for the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers.
Hayes scored on a putback as time expired to lead the Heavy Bombers to another heartstopping 69-67 overtime win over powerhouse Far Eastern University in the fifth Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the FEU gym in Morayta, Manila.
Hayes, who finished with 15 points, came out of nowhere to tip in the marginal basket from the right side against a phalanx of FEU defenders.
Hayes’ heroic came after the Tamaraws rallied from a five-point deficit in overtime to tie the score at 69-all with 24 seconds left.
“We’re doing well. The players are responding to our game plans to the letter,” said newly-appointed JRU head coach Vergel Meneses.
“It’s a learning process, but the players are all willing to adjust to our system,” added Meneses, who is being assisted on the bench by Ricky Alcantara, Vic Escudero, Jun Tiongco and Nat Gregorio.
It was the third straight win for the Heavy Bombers after losing to University of Perpetual Help, 53-60, in their opening game in this 10-team Group B division.
Last week, Njei, a 6-0 recruit from Cameroon, hit a buzzer-beating shot to give the Heavy Bombers a 61-59 win over Adamson University.
Five other players -- Njei, Reycon Kabigting, Decoy Lopez, Ildefonso Bulangis Jr. and Allen Montemayor -- also contributed in the scoring parade for the Mandaluyong-based squad also supported by JRU athletic director Paul Supan and team manager Alex Wang.
Njei added 13 points, Kabigting and Lopez had 12 points each and Bulangis and Montemayor contributed 10 points apiece.
Next in line for the Heavy Bombers is undefeated Arellano University-Team A at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.
In the other game, Lyceum of the Philippine University crushed Centro Escolar University, 75-65, in Group A.
Handled by coach Bonnie Tan, the Intramuros based Pirates relied on Joseph Abaya, Rich Guevara, Andrei Mendoza and Fritz Gerald Ong to claim their third win in as many outings.

Bombers survive Chiefs

People's Tonight
Januart 26, 2010


Joe Rizal University went to Cameroon recruit John Nchotu Njei and Raycon Kabigting in the final two minute to eke out a heart-stopping 70-69 win over Arellano University in the Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the FEU gym in Morayta, Manila.

Njei, the hero in the Heavy Bombers's 51-49 win over Adamson University, nailed two pressure- packed free throws with 48 seconds left to help JRU clinch its fourth straight win after opening day loss.

Kabigting, a 5-9 sophomore guard, also came through at crunchtime with a big three-point shots that negated Arellano's furious 9-0 entering the two minute mark.

"It was another close win for the team, but I'll take it," said newly appointed JRU coach Vergel Meneses, also known as the "Aerial Voyager" during his playing years.

"The boys have shown they can cope up very well in pressure-packed matches and this is good sign for the team," added Meneses, who is getting valuable support from consultant Derreck Pumaren and managaer Alex Wang.

Overall, the Mandaluyong-based Heavy Bombers grabbed solo second place behind NCAA runner-up San Beda College (4-0) in the 10-team Group B.

Marvin Hayes topscored with 14 points for the Heavy Bombers, whose coaching staff include Agustin Tiongco, Vic Escudero, Nat Gregorio and conditioning coach Dan Ross.

Decoy Lopez, Alex Almario and Hector Badua also produced big games for the Heavy Bombers, contributing 11 points apiece.

Njei and Kabigting added 10 points each.

Adrian Celada, Noy Celada and Len Anquillo combined for 30 points for the Chiefs, who dropped to 3-3 win-loss card.

A good defensive strategy worked wonder for the Heavy Bombers at the start of the final period, allowing them to limit the Chief's production and surge to a nine-point cushion, 65-56.

That proved to be enough for the Heavy Bombers even after the Chiefs battled back behind the efforts of Celada, Del Rosario and Anquillo.

Anquillo, Arellano's 5-5 guard, made it 69-70 with still 33 seconds left.

But then Heavy Bombers cannot be denied.

They forced the Chiefs to miss three straight shots as time expired.

Back-to-back wins by Bombers

Jose Rizal University hammered back-to-back victories over College of St. Benilde, 69-55, and Our Lady of Fatima University, 83-58, to grab the top spot in Group B in the 5th Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the Arellano and Lyceum gyms, respectively.

John Derico Lopez stood at the helm of the twin victories, enabling the Vergel Meneses-mentored Heavy Bombers to assume the lead with their six straight win against only one loss in the 10-team Group B.

Jose Rizal remains ahead of NCAA runner-up San Beda College (5-1) in Group B.

Lopez sizzled with 20 points against St Benilde and 15 points against Fatima.

Marvin Hayes, Raycon Kabigting, Joel Gabriel and John Nchotu Njei also played well for the Mandaluyong-based squad.

"I'am happy with the team's performance right now. May tendency na mag-relax kapag lumamang, pero mabilis namang maka-recover." said Meneses who is ably supported by consultant Derreck Pumaren and manager Alex Wang.

"It was team effort. They did not give up and strike back in the end when mattered most." added Meneses, who coahing staff included Jhun Tiongco, Vic Escudero and conditioning coach/trainer Dan Rose.

JRU, which already assured of a slot in quarterfinals will next face San Beda on February 20 at the Arellano gym.

Bombers outclass Olympians


Jose Rizal University defeated STI Colleges, 67-56, but dropped a 60-71, decision to NCAA runner-up San Beda College at the close of elimination round in the 5th Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the Arellano gym in Legarda, Manila.

John Derico Lopez, Reycon Kabigting, Hector Badua and Marvin Hayes carried the fight for the Heavy Bombers of former PBA superstar Vergel Meneses in this annual 20-team, two-group tournament organized by Aric Del Rosario, Joey Lim and Edmundo "Ato" Badolato.

Lopez scattered 16 points, while Kabigting, Badua and Hayes contributed 10 points apiece for the Heavy Bombers, who beat the Olympians and close their elimination round campaign with a 7-2 win-loss card behind only San Beda (8-1) in Group B.

John Nchotu Njei, Alex Almario and Allen Montemayor also played well for the Mandaluyong-based Heavy Bombers, who are being fully supported by JRU Alumni Association and athletic director Paul Supan.

It was a different story against San Beda however.

After battling for a 33-all standoff at the end of the first half, the Heavy Bombers failed to keep pace with the Frankie Lim-mentored Red Lions.

With bigmen Sudan Daniel, Jake Pascual and Dave Marcelo controlling the boards and Garvo Lanete and Borgie Hermida hitting consecutive shots, the Red Lions slowly took control and kept the Heavy Bombers at bay the rest of the way.

The Heavy Bombers will face Group A No. 3 University of the Philippines in the quarterfinals at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday at the FEU gym.

"We have a very pretty good chance against them (Maroon)," said Meneses, who is being ably assisted on bench by Jhun Tiongco and Vic Escudero.

Heavy Bombers make semis


Jose Rizal University leaned on the duo of Raycon Kabigting and Alex Almario to subdue University of the Philippines, 62-59, and clinch a semifinal berth in the fiifth Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the FEU gym in Morayta, Manila.

Kabigting, a 5-10 sophomore guard hit a tie-breaking long shot for a 59-57 lead with 47 seconds left before Almario a 5-9 recruit from Malolos City nailed a back-breaking three point shot to seal the win with only 10 seconds remaining.

"The boys played very well, especially during crunchtime," said former PBA superstar turned-JRU coach Vergel Meneses after the Heavy Bombers ninth win in eleven matches.

With the win, JRU earned the right to meet Far Eastern University in the cross-over semis at 12 noon on Sunday, March 7.

FEU defeated Mapua, 73-70.

The winner of JRU-FEU match will meet the victor of the other semis match pitting San Beda College and Adamson University, which defeated Letran College and San Sebastian College, respectively.

Actually, the Heavy Bombers controlled the early part of the last quarter and took a 55-47 lead.

But the Maroons rallied behind Woody Co, Alvin Padilla and Mike Silungan to threaten at 54-55.

A three pointer by Silungan then tied the score at 57-all with still two minutes left.

After Kabigting gave the Heavy Bombers a 59-57 lead, Marvin Hayes stole the ball with 34 seconds left.

After wisely dribbling the time away, Almario then hit a three-pointer with the shot-clock fast running out for a five point cushion.

Silungan finalized the score for UP with a jumper as time expired.

John Derico Lopez topscored for the Heavy Bombers with 23 points, followed by Kabigting with 11 points and John Nchotu Njei, Hayes and Almario with eight points apiece.

The Bombers executed plays with 2 to 3 options. Meneses clearly defined the spots where his players can take the shots. Hardly did he scold or castigate a player who took a shot and missed. Napagsasabihan pa yung dapat tumira na pero di tinuloy.

On defense, this team has a new character -- "honest hustle". Dati "bully" ang dating ng depensa, a poor imitation of Letran's, pero nagugulangan naman. Now it has a new defensive personality. Meneses is very good in rotating his players to maintain the hustle he desires on the floor.

nice observation.

the team lost their big 3 in Sena, Cagoco and Wilson pero maganda ang pinapakita ngayon sa Father Martin. Too early to tell ba? o masasabi natin na may potential talaga ang team dati pa na sinayang lang ng dating coach nila dahil sa concentration dun sa 3 tapos hindi naman nag deliver when it really counts. Nice to hear that other bombers are stepping up in the absence of those 3. I heard some guys were designated as "defensive" players only and not allowed to take shots by their previous coach.

Hope the team will reach their potential with the "Aerial Voyager". Ang daming nagrereklamo nung ginawa siyang coach. Hope this would shut them up :) He didn't have the help of any "Lords" :)

"Heavy Bombers reach cage finals"

Peoples Tonight
March 10, 2010


JOSE Rizal University asserted its mastery over Far Eastern University, 82-66, to clinch a finals berth in the fifth Fr. Martin Cup Open basketball tournament at the Arellano gym in Mendiola, Manila.

Reycon Kabigting, Decoy Lopez and John Nchotu Njei provided the clutch baskets for the Heavy Bombers, who arranged a championship showdown with San Beda College on March 14.

“This is a major achievement for the team,” said former PBA superstar -turned-JRU coach Vergel Meneses.

“But there’s no time for celebration yet. We have to think about our championship showdown with San Beda,” added Meneses, who is hoping to lead the Mandaluyong-based Heavy Bombers to their first title since taking over as coach.

San Beda made it an all-NCAA finals when it routed Adamson Univesity, 86-73.

Kabigting, a 5-10 sophomore guard, scored 16 points, while Lopez, a 6-2 second-year forward, and Njei, a prized find from Cameroon, added 12 points apiece for the Heavy Bombers, who also defeated the Tamaraws, 69-67, in the elimination round.

Leading 62-57, the Heavy Bombers went on a furious 11-3 run at the start of the payoff period to virually settle the outcome of the match, 73-60.

The Tamaraws never recovered from there.

Hector Badua, Alex Almario and Marvin Hayes also gave JRU a big lift, combining a big second-quarter explosion that propelled the Heavy Bombers to a 43-33 advantage at halftime.

Badua finished with 11 points, Hayes contributed nine points and Almario had points for Mandaluyong-based Heavy Bombers.

With Kabigting, Almario, Badua, and JR Bulangis alternating on pressuring FEU’s high- scoring guard Ryan Roose Garcia and rookie sensation Terrence Romeo, the Heavy Bombers forced several turnovers on their more-experienced UAAP counterpart.

Garcia carried the fight for the Tamaraws with 17 points, followed by JR Cawaling with 12 points and Pipo Noudou with 10 points.

But Riel Cervantes, FEU’s “Tower of Power” was limited to only seven points by the tight defense put up by Lopez, John Montemayor and Hayes.

The championship game will be played at 10:30 a.m. on March 14 at the
Arellano gym.

“San Beda is a tough oppnent but the boys will be ready,” explained Meneses, who is being supported by JRU community, headed by athletic director Paul Supan.

Assisting Meneses on the bench were Jhun Tiongco, Ricky Alcantara and Vic Escudero.

The 20-team, two groups tournament is being organized by Edmundo “Ato” Badolato, Joey Lim and Aric del Rosario.

The new conditioning program of JRU is also a big help to the team.. even the big guys can now defend even full court.. credit that to their conditioning coach Dan Rose.. an expert in plyometrics..

I am just surprised that JRU defeated FEU despite being small. Naliliitan ako sa team na ito pero grabe talaga ang conditioning. They could capitalized on their speed for another Finals run.

5th FMC Open, SEMIS.

Yung laro kanina ng Bombers kontra FEU, sa tantya ko ay hindi tatalunin ng SBC sa Finals, unless may ipagagawa si Frankie Lim na di ko pa nakikita.

The Bombers executed plays with 2 to 3 options. Meneses clearly defined the spots where his players can take the shots. Hardly did he scold or castigate a player who took a shot and missed. Napagsasabihan pa yung dapat tumira na pero di tinuloy.

On defense, this team has a new character -- "honest hustle". Dati "bully" ang dating ng depensa, a poor imitation of Letran's, pero nagugulangan naman. Now it has a new defensive personality. Meneses is very good in rotating his players to maintain the hustle he desires on the floor.

Iba ang kumpyansa ng mga players.

Di maganda ang pangitain para sa ibang koponan ng NCAA pagpasok ng S86.


Regardless....SBC just beat JRU for the FMC Championship.

The JRU coaching staff is one loud bunch. At any given time, 4-5 persons are standing up yelling instructions to the players and even calling for substitutions. Nalito tuloy si Njei kung sino susundin niya. ;) It makes you wonder whether its Meneses or the Pumaren boys who actually control this team.

As I said, unless may kakaibang ipapagawa si Frankie...

It was only in the last 1:45 of the 4th that Frankie gave instruction to go easy on defense. It was pressure-D for the whole of the 2nd half right from the inbound. For the past 3 NC' seasons, was there any game that the Red Lions employed that kind of a defense?

Surprisingly, walang adjustment ang JRU to that 2nd half pressure-D.

With Derek Pumaren as consultant and the assistants having served directly under Dindo Pumaren, they should have read that defense well enough to make a decent adjustment. But none was made.

That's puzzling to an miron like me.

when Atom Bomb started coaching with the stags he was criticized. look who's laughing now

oca
04-09-2010, 11:00 PM
^
Who criticized Ato?

The hardcore followers of the game always give those coming onboard as head coaches for the first time the benefit of the doubt. If someone had questioned if they can handle the pressures of the job, it is a routine question and not a criticism.

Same is accorded to Vergel.

What is criticized is, IF YOU HAVE SEEN JRU PLAY WITH THIS NEW COACHING STAFF, the simultaneous coaching done by the assistants and the head coach. Mas maingay pa nga yung mga assistants!

Going back to Vargel, he may not be as lucky as Ato. While the latter came onboard with players in the pool having completed their residency like Pascual and Abueva, Vergel is taking on a team that has a lean pool and losing players who have completed their eligibility or whose loyalty is to the former coach and not to the school.

it seems the 2008-09 CeSAFI Juniors MVP Marty John Pearce would be transferring to the Jose Rizal Heavy Bombers instead of the San Beda Red Lions. Last season this former University of Cebu Junior Webmaster played sparingly for the FEU Tamaraws in the UAAP. This 5'9 Point Guard would thus strengthen the backcourt rotation of JRU in the NCAA after he serves the required residency.

JRU-San Beda in Fr Martin Finals

Arellano Gym Manila - NCAA stalwarts Jose Rizal and San Beda bested separate foes to arrange a winner-take-all championship in the ongoing Fr Martin Cup Open Division yesterday afternoon.

JRU leaned on the clutch shooting of Nate Matute and steady play-making of Alex Almario in the payoff fourth period to eke out a tough win over NU 71-69. JRU played sans their two African imports, Etame Joe and Nchotu Njei, who were at the venue in street clothes.

NU looked headed for the win as they controlled the first half behind the duo of former RP Youth standouts Joseph Terso, Rey Parks and Emmanuel Mbe. But Jon Lopez, Jecster Apinan, Matute and Almario put on several short but heated runs in the second half to turn things in JRU's favor.

Matute and Almario led JRU with 13 points each and combined for six steals.

Parks had a game-high 19 points but went 0-6 on treys in the second half.

Reigning NCAA champion San Beda had some moments of anxiety but eventually prevailed over a shorter Adamson squad 80-72, thanks to the power plays of new African import Olaide Adeogan and the hot shooting of Anthony Semerad.

Adamson hung tough behind speedy guards Jeric Canada and Lester Alvarez but just could not match up against the size and depth of San Beda.

Semerad led all scorers with 16 points while Olaide added 15 points and 10 rebounds with two blocks.

Canada had 13 points for Adamson.

Finals are set for Sunday 20 March at Arellano Gym in Manila. 9:00 AM for the women, 11:00 AM for the men.

San Beda Wins Second Straight Fr Martin Title

Arellano Gym, Manila - Reigning NCAA champion San Beda survived dangerous Jose Rizal University to claim the Fr Martin Cup Open Division championship pulling away 76 - 62.

Probably expecting a cake walk against a much smaller JRU side, the Red Lions weren't really pouring it on throughout the first half. New African import Olaida Adeogun and Anthony Semerad, top performers during their semifinal rout of Adamson, proved listless. Olaida even knocked off a sure basket by Jake Pascual on a trail job.

Guards Alex Almario and Nate Matute were keeping the Bombers in the fight with pin-point outside shooting. But JRU was a woeful 6-22 in the first hlaf on freethrows, a gaping deficit that could have easily turned the tide in their favor.

In the third period, the Bombers seemed to have gotten into even more trouble, losing forwards Jon Lopez and Ralph Monserrat after the two left the bench during an on-court altercation early in the period. Sent to the dugout, the already undersized Bombers got even smaller.

This however also served as a spark as Jecster Apinan instigated a rallye that brought JRU within 53-55 late in the third period. San Beda was getting lazy on their transition defense, allowing the JRU perimeter to leak out and finish on the break.

But Mar Villahermosa nailed a trey, followed by a Garvo Lanete jumper both from the right corner to give San Beda back some breathing room at 53-70. That was about as good as it would get for the Bombers, as American import and reigning NCAA MVP Sudan Daniel imposed himself inside, getting six second-half blocks.

Seldom-used Boy Koga nailed a trey from the left corner to ice the game for the Red Lions.

Daniel led San Beda with 14 points and 10 blocks, while Lanete had 13 markers.

Chris Mendoza, a new recruit, led all scoers with 15 poibnts, while Matute chipped in 13.

La Salle Green Archers, JRU Heavy Bombers gain PCCL final eight

Joshua Webb sustained his strong play as La Salle upset University of Santo Tomas, 72-67, Monday in the stepladder Sweet 16 round of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the FilOil-Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Webb, who topscored for La Salle with 15 points in his last outing, took charge anew by drilling half of his 16 points in a pivotal run that gave the Archers their first double-digit lead, 64-54, in the second half.

“What we’re trying to do is maximize the strength of the team,” said new La Salle coach Gee Abanilla after ousting the Tigers, a semifinalist in the last UAAP wars.

John Lopez and Nate Matute delivered in the clutch as Jose Rizal University ended National University’s run with a 66-62 decision in the first of the knockout doubleheader.
Lopez drained six of his 10 points in the final quarter, including two buffer free throws with just 1.2 seconds left.

La Salle takes on NCAA powerhouse Letran next at 3:30 p.m. today after JRU tangles with Adamson, another UAAP semifinalist, at 1:30 also in San Juan.

Almond Vosotros had 13 points, six rebounds and four assists, while Luigi dela Paz added 12 markers for the Archers. Joseph Marata also found his shooting touch, firing all but one of his 10 points from three-point range.

“I’ve seen a lot of improvement and I just hope we’ll continue on improving,” said Abanilla. “We’ve got a long way to go since right now we’re just starting. But we’re happy about it. The boys are really aggressive.”

John Villarias and Jeckster Apinan delivered similar outputs of eight points and nine rebounds for the Bombers.

“We had lapses in defense,” said JRU coach Vergel Meneses. “NU is a quick and disciplined team, [but eventually] we were were able to contain their fastbreaks.”

The scores:

First Game
JRU 66—Lopez 10, Villarias 8, Apinan 8, Montemayor 7, Monserat 7, Matute 7, Kabigting 7, Almario 6, Carampil 4, Paniamogan 2, Mendoza 0.
NATIONAL U 62—Mbe 13, Javillonar 12, Villamor 8, Labing-isa 8, Roño 5, Singh 4, Alolino 4, Neypes 3, Khobuntin 3, Celda 2.
Quarters: 14-11, 32-26, 51-45, 66-62

Second Game
LA SALLE 72—Webb 16, Vosotros 13, Dela Paz 12, Marata 10, Revilla 8, Torres 7, Tampus 2, Paredes 2, Mendoza 2, Gotladera 0, Sara 0.
UST 67—Ferrer 23, Vigil 9, Lo 9, Sheriff 6, Afuang 6, Abdul 5, Camus 5, Javier 2, Pe 2, Tan 0, Lao 0, Umaria 0.

Falcons seal showdown versus Stags

Caught up in a tight playing schedule, Adamson University flexed just enough muscle to whip Jose Rizal, 73-58, and advance into the next phase in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) Sweet 16 stepladder knockout playoffs at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.

Kenyan center Austin Manyara unloaded seven points in a 17-4 fourth-quarter run that all but sealed it for the Falcons, whose coach and key players had to rush to the AdU gym immediately after the game to join Freego Jeans in the PBA D-League.

“We’re happy we won considering some of the players were thinking about our game for Freego, which was just one hour away. We were down in the first half and I told my players to concentrate on this game (PCCL) because this is our priority, student (league) first before commercial (league),” said Austria.

The Adamson and Freego mentor, in fact, sent Lester Alvarez, who suffered a toe injury in the first half, Roider Cabrera and Rodney Brondial to the Falcons’ gym ahead of the others.

Manyara (16 points, nine rebounds), Janus Lozada (14 points, 11 rebounds, five assists) and Eric Camson (seven points, 13 rebounds) finished the match and followed suit, as did the JRU players in the Freego lineup, Jeckster Apinan (17 markers) and John Lopez (four points, 10 rebounds).

The Falcons forged a duel with NCAA runner-up San Sebastian tomorrow, facing the same predicament of another game set in the D-League.

The Bombers actually stormed ahead to 20-15 against a Falcons team that’s apparently conserving energy for their next assignment of the day.

In the second game, Letran nipped La Salle, 66-61, to advance against UAAP Season 74 runner-up Far Eastern.

Kevin Alas drilled in 14 points, including a clutch basket that gave the Knights a 63-59 cushion going to the last 1:22, in his valedictory before leaving for the US for a month-long training with American Basketball Association team LA Slam.

Raymond Almazan dished off a near-triple-double with 10 points, 17 rebounds and seven blocks to complement Alas and the 14 points of Kevin Racal and 11 of Mark Cruz.

“This is a bonus win for us because we haven’t really been training together. Our practice is in conflict with that of the players’ D-League teams and as I promised them after the NCAA, I won’t force them to practice with Letran,” said Knights coach Louie Alas, who will also be gone for a month to be with Kevin and the family in the US.

Ateneo De Manila survived torrid outside shooting from Jose Rizal to pull out a 98-92 victory in overtime and win their second Fr Martin Cup summer title in three years.

It was a nip and tuck affair as both sides played on short runs throughout regular time. JRU started off hot going up as much as 8-13 in the opening period before the Ateneo responded to turn things around 18-14. Guard Nate Matute got things going early for the Heavy Bombers scoring five of the first seven JRU points. Greg Slaughter and Nico Salva responded for the Blue Eagles with some nifty inside incursions.

Swingman Jon Villarias provided a spark off the bench for Coach Vergel Meneses, even as forwards Ron Carampil and Ralph Monserat provided relentless board work and inside points against the much taller Ateneo frontline.

Second half action saw Tonino Gonzaga and Keifer Ravena keeping the Blue Eagles firing when Salva and Slaughter needed a breather, taking turns attacking the basket and drawing trips to the freethrow line. JP Erram provided good spot minutes as a defensive presence inside, as did Justin Chua. Villarias, Carampil, Alex Almario and Matute however kept plugging away to keep the game tied at 60-all after three priods.

Up 77-69 midway through the payoff fourth period behind Salva and Slaughter, it looked like the Ateneo had the game in the bag. Villarias and Matute however were not done firing. Matute nailed back to back three-pointers to give the Heavy Bombers the lead 83-84 with only 23 seconds left. Coach Norman Black sued for time and guard Juami Tiongson was fouled on the ensuing play. Tiongson split his charities for the final count in regular time.

Both teams still managed to get into a slugfest in the extra period with the score knotted at 90-all on a Carampil jumper. Salva hit a pivotal basket and Slaughter and Ravena made some key free throws however for the final count.

Slaughter led all scorers with 28 points to go with 12 rebounds. Salva added 16 points and eight boards. Gonzaga had 15 and Ravena 12.

Villarias led JRU with 21 points while Matute added 14. Villarias and Matute combined for a half dozen treys.

GAMES THURSDAY (San Juan Arena)

4 p.m.—Mapua vs Arellano

6 p.m.—San Beda vs Letran

MANILA, Philippines—San Sebastian squandered a 20-point lead but still had enough spunk to down defending champion San Beda, 80-71, even as Jose Rizal pounced on out-of-sync Letran to score a 101-83 rout last night as they shared top spot in NCAA men’s basketball at San Juan Arena.

The Stags, powered by their own version of Big 3 namely Calvin Abueva, Ronald Pascual and Ian Sangalang, surged to a 35-15 advantage early in the second quarter which threatened to turn the game many dubbed as “bad blood’’ into bloodshed.

But Baser Amer, flung triples to highlight the Red Lions’ searing rally, the last one in the dying seconds of the third quarter that pushed San Beda to within 58-59.

That’s until Pascual once again found his range from the three-point lane, and Abueva his magic touch and made things right again for 2009 champion San Sebastian.

The PBA-ready Abueva finished with 21 points, 21 rebounds and nine assists, while Pascual topscored with 28 points on 7-of-13 three-point shooting. Sangalang added nine points and 10 rebounds.

“We expected them to come back, given that they are the defending champions, what is important is that we made the stops we didn’t try to protect the lead,’’ said SSC coach Topex Robinson.

Like the Stags, the Bombers rose to 7-2.

The scores:

First Game

JOSE RIZAL 101—Villarias 29, Matute 25, Carampil 12, Lopez 12,Almario 9, Mabulac 4, Camasura 4, Dela Paz 3, Mendoza 2, Salaveria 1,Porter 0.

LETRAN 83—Kevin Alas 31, Racal 15, Cortes 15, Cruz 14, Kr Alas 4, Lituania 2, Gabawan 2, Luib 0, Almario 0, Belorio 0.

Quarters: 19-17, 48-38, 74-54, 101-83

Second Game

SAN SEBASTIAN 80—Pascual 28, Abueva 21, Maiquez 11, Sangalang 9, Dela Cruz 4, Antipuesto 3, Rebullos 2, Juico 2, Binuya 0, Miranda 0, Balucanag 0.

SAN BEDA 71—Caram 17, Amer 14, J. Pascual 10, K. Pascual 6, Lim 6, Dela Rosa 6, Adeogun 4, Dela Cruz 0, Koga 0.

Manila, Philippines - Rocky Acidre fired all but two of his 22 points in the second half, including two charities that secured Arellano U’s surprise 85-82 victory over fancied Jose Rizal U in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.

Held to just two points in the first half, Acidre, a 20-year-old junior from San Jose, Leyte, waxed hot with 13 points in the fourth quarter to help power the Chiefs to what was only their fourth win against six defeats.

“What can I say, Rocky (Acidre) is one of our veterans and can be relied upon in the clutch,” said Arellano U coach Koy Banal.

Arellano’s victory also foiled Jose Rizal’s bid to re-join San Beda on top as the Bombers fell to 7-3.

Acidre highlighted his endgame heroics with a triple that shattered the 75-all and then set up Fil-Canadian James Forrester for a lay-up in the next play to give Arellano a five-point cushion with less than three minutes to go.

“I wasn’t instructed by my coach (Banal) to shoot in the fourth quarter, it just so happened that I got the opportunities and converted it,” said Acidre.

The Chiefs thus bounced back from a forgettable performance Thursday when they scored just three fourth quarter points and ended up getting drubbed by the Mapua Cardinals, 49-68.

“It was my fault that we lost in the last game, not the players. After that, I kept telling the team to stay positive,” said Banal.

The Bombers actually pulled to within one, 82-83, as Byron Villarias completed a rare four-point play with 15 seconds to go.

But the Bombers fouled Acidre to stop the clock and latter rose to the challenge by canning a pair of pressure-packed charities to preserve the win.

The Bombers still had one last chance to send the game into overtime but Nate Matute, who finished with 21 points, including three triples, hit nothing but air as time expired.

Arellano outscored JRU in the third quarter, 28-17, to break a 34-all count and post a 62-51 bulge entering the fourth quarter.

Then Acidre took over.

Meanwhile, Perpetual Help drew strength from Jett Vidal as it fended off St. Benilde’s furious fightback to escape with a 78-74 victory yesterday and jump into a three-way tie at second place with San Sebastian and Jose Rizal in the second game.

In juniors’ action, Robert Bolick stepped up in the absence of Mario Bonleon as he came through with a triple-double effort to power La Salle-Greenhills to a 95-76 victory over Perpetual.

Bolick had a season high 41 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists and topped his all-around effort with a game-high six steals plus two blocks for La Salle-GH, which improved to 7-3.

Bonleon is with the Energen Pilipinas right now competing in the FIBA-Asia Under-18 Championship in Mongolia.

In other high school result, Jose Rizal edged Arellano U, 53-48, to stay in the Final Four hunt.

Dragged into a tight endgame battle, Jose Rizal U proved steadier than Mapua again.

Repeating their first-round feat, the Bombers nipped the Cardinals, 63-60, last night to grab a share of second spot in the 88th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Bombers banked on their defense down the stretch, shutting out the Cardinals in the last six minutes to post their eighth win in 11 games and tie idle San Sebastian.

Letran boosted its Final Four hopes with a 62-57 decision over Perpetual Help in the second game to improve to 6-5 behind the 7-4 card of its victim.

The loss, which could have repercussions on Mapua’s Final Four hopes late in the season, was a bitter blow for the Cardinals, who went into the final six minutes holding a 60-54 lead after Kenneth Ighalo buried two free throws to cap a 7-0 burst.

The game closely mirrored the 65-64 victory of the Bombers in the first round.

This time, the Bombers found unlikely heroes in seldom-used forward Ralph Monserate, who hit back-to-back shots, and Ivan Camasura, who nailed a triple with two minutes remaining for the go-ahead basket, 61-60.

The Cardinals were still in the game heading into the last 20 seconds, but guard Andrew Estrella found himself in a crowd of JRU defenders and lost the ball, leading to a fastbreak basket by John Lopez with 12 seconds remaining.

Lopez led all scorers with 17 points. He also grabbed six boards, issued four assists.

Still, the win that was marred by 26 JRU turnovers left Bombers coach Vergel Meneses unimpressed.

MANILA, Philippines - Back in harness, Calvin Abueva was back in his triple-double ways, powering San Sebastian to a 92-72 rout of St. Benilde yesterday in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at the Arena in San Juan.

Abueva, back after a one-game suspension for a disqualification foul, tallied 17 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists that made up for his nine turnovers as the Stags stayed in solo second with a 10-3 (win-loss) record.

In the nightcap, Jett Vidal matched the season-best 32-point output of SSC’s Ronald Pascual as Perpetual Help walloped Jose Rizal, 88-72, to tie its victim at third place with 8-3 slates.

It was Abueva’s third triple-double effort in this final season for the Stags after a 15-point, 15-rebound, 11-assist effort in an 80-65 win over Perpetual last July 3 and a 16-point, 23-board and 10-assist performance in an 87-79 win over Lyceum last July 23.

Abueva, the No. 2 overall pick by Alaska Milk in the recent PBA rookie draft, continued to lead the statistical points race for the MVP award but the fiery SSC gunner is no longer qualified to vie in any individual awards after his suspension.

The Pampanga pride, however, took it all in stride.

“My only focus right now is to help my team win a championship and my teammate, Ian Sangalang, win the MVP for me,” said Abueva.

Sangalang, who leads the MVP race now following Abueva’s disqualification, exploded for 16 of his 20 points in the second half while Pascual matched his output, highlighted by four triples.

It was also San Sebastian interim coach Allan Trinidad’s third straight victory since he took over from Topex Robinson.

“I have to give it to the players for responding to the challenge,” said Trinidad.

Carlo Lastimosa led all scorers with 22 points but the Blazers had no answer to SSC’s triumvirate’s (Abueva, Sangalang, Pascual) firepower.

St. Benilde fell to 4-9.

In juniors play, San Sebastian downed La Salle-Greenhills, 62-51, while Jose Rizal leaned on a 20-point, 25-rebound effort of Ginno Abrew as it turned back Perpetual Help, 74-70, to boost their Final Four bids.

The scores:

First Game (Srs)

San Sebastian 92 – Sangalang 20, Pascual 20, Abueva 17, Gusi 11, Maiquez 10, Miranda 6, Juico 4, Antipuesto 2, dela Cruz 2, Rebullos 0, Binuya 0

St. Benilde 72 – Lastimosa 22, Taha 13, Grey 9, Grey 6, Altamirano 6, Tan 6, Sinco 4, Bartolo 2, Deles 2, Dela Paz 2, Maconocido 0, Garcia 0, Romero 0, Carlos 0

MANILA, Philippines - Jose Rizal fed on an explosive first half offensive and bucked repeated rallies by San Sebastian for an 82-74 victory that kept the Bombers Final Four hopes afloat in the 88th NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan City yesterday.

Byron Villarias unleashed a game-high 28 points he spiked with a season-high tying eight triples as the Bombers snared their 10th win against seven losses to move just half-a-game behind joint third running Perpetual Help Altas and Letran Knights (10-6).

Jose Rizal survived a second half explosion by Calvin Abueva, who struggled in the early going but finished strong and wound up with 26 points, 20 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

But the Bombers, who nearly squandered a 20-point bulge at the turn, made the right plays at the right time on both ends down the stretch to preserve the victory while dealing Stags their fifth defeat againt 11 triumphs.

“I’m just happy the players showed character in the end,” said Jose Rizal coach Vergel Meneses.

JRU’s win likewise gave reigning champion San Beda the top seeding with a 14-2 card.

Earlier, Fil-Canadian James Forrester fired 24 points as Arellano U trounced an undermanned Lyceum side, 58-49, in a non-bearing game.

Forrester highlighted his scoring binge with five triples as the Chiefs took control in the second quarter and went on to dominate the Pirates to hike their record to 6-10.

Although out of the Final Four race, Arellano U coach Koy Banal still told his players to play their best.

“Whether it’s a championship game or just a practice match, I always tell players to give it all,” said Banal, who hopes to figure well in the semis race next year with an intact roster.

The Pirates, who have played without Chris Cayabyab, Vence Laude, Mark Francisco and Floricel Guevarra for the third straight game due to academic deficiencies, fell to 3-14.

In juniors’ play, San Sebastian fought off a furious challenge by Jose Rizal as it carved out a 79-70 victory to seize the solo lead and clinch the first twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four with a 15-1 record.

Arellano U routed Lyceum, 125-36, in another non-bearing contest to improve to 7-9.

Jose Rizal fell to 6-11 while Lyceum took its 16th straight loss.

MANILA, Philippines – Jose Rizal overcame a furious fightback by San Sebastian in the fourth quarter as it eked out an 82-77 victory yesterday to clinch a Final Four berth in the 90th NCAA basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan City Monday.

The Bombers will clinch a spot in the Final Four for even if they end up in a three-way tie with Perpetual Help and College of St. Benilde at third and fourth places with 12-6 (win-loss) slates because of a higher quotient tiebreak.

It marked the first time that the Kalentong-based dribblers will make it to the Final Four since making it that far three years ago.

"It's nice to be back in the Final Four, the players wanted it," said Jose Rizal coach Vergel Meneses.

But Jose Rizal nearly blew it though after seeing a once-mighty 60-37 lead in the third quarter vanish.

The Stags woke up after their coach Topex Robinson was tossed out in the third canto and launched a series of torrid runs that saw them inching closer to 79-76 with less than a minute to go.

The Bombers then held the Stags to just a point the rest of the way while Philip Paniamogan sank the free throws that sealed the deal.

Paniamogan ended up with a game-high 24 points including 10 from the foul line.

"He's one of the leaders of this team and he showed it especially in the crucial part of the game," said Meneses of Paniamogan.

The Stags fell to 5-13.

The scores

Jose Rizal 82- Paniamogan 24, Benavides 13, Mabulac 13, Teodoro 10, Asuncion 10, Abdul Wahab 6, Sanchez 3, Grospe 3, Astilla 0, Lasquety 0, Balagtas 0

San Sebastian 77- Ortuoste 22, Camasura 13, Perez 13, Guinto 9, Dela Cruz 7, Balucanag 7, Yong 4, Aquino 2, Calisaan 0, Fabian 0, Santos 0

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

San Beda returned to familiar territory, while Arellano broke new ground.

Proving equal to the challenge at crunchtime, the Red Lions and Chiefs forged a championship duel last night with gutsy victories in the Final Four of the 90th NCAA basketball tournament at SM Mall of Asia Arena.

The Red Lions built enough cushion to hold off a late Perpetual Help rally with an 81-75 triumph that rewarded San Beda with a ninth straight finals appearance while the Chiefs turned back the Jose Rizal U Bombers, 72-65, to reach the finals for the first time since joining the league in 2009.

As the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, the Red Lions and Chiefs were armed with a twice-to-beat edge. It turned out they didn’t need it as both teams came out strong in the final quarter to preserve their early advantage.

“It’s a dream come true for all of us in the entire Arellano community,” said Arellano coach Jerry Codiñera, in only his first season at the helm.

“It’s nice to be back in the finals,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez, whose team is seeking a fifth straight title.

Game 1 of the best-of-three finals is at 4 p.m. on Monday at Mall of Asia Arena.

American Dioncee Holts notched 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, but it was Jiovani Jalalon who delivered the telling blows, scoring the last five points of the Chiefs, while putting the clamps on a red-hot Jaycee Asuncion down the stretch.

The Lions nearly squandered a 26-point lead in the first half as the Altas came within five points, 75-80, in the last 20 seconds, before Baser Amer iced the game with a split from the free throw line.

The scores:

First Game

SAN BEDA 81—A. Semerad 18, Amer 17, Adeogun 13, Mendoza 12, Dela Cruz 11, Pascual 6, Koga 2, Tongco 2, Sara 0, Abude 0, D. Semerad 0.

PERPETUAL HELP 75—Thompson 20, Baloria 20, Arboleda 14, ALano 11, Dagangon 7, Oliveria 2, Jolangcob 1, Dizon 0, Ylagan 0, Gallardo 0, Bantayan 0.
