Based on the advertisement on BTV, mukhang ito ang mga papasok:

UAAP - I guess lahat ng Final Four teams
NCAA - same
UCAA - Champion
NCRAA - Arellano University (by virture of which they won the title last February)
NAASCU - STI College
CESAFI - Champion?
NOPSSCEA - Champion?
DCAA - Champion?

Di ko lang alam yung last two, siguro baka wildcard mapunta (and hopefully it wont have another Metro Manila bias like last year).

I would they won't go for the top four UAAP and NCAA teams, maybe they should cut it down to the two finalists of both leagues for a chance and maybe add these teams from the provinces a lot more. I think a champion team from Iloilo and Negros should be seeded automatically as well.

uaap schools tend to NOT take this league seriously for some reason or other. UST did not live up to expectations last year.

hopefully the champion's league will gain more prestige through the coming years

Well, I guess it takes time for the league to establish a history.* Once it has that, then hopefully prestige will slowly follow, & sooner or later, teams will have to start taking it more seriously.*

Some UAAP schools DO take the CCL seriously. UE is on top of my mind. Look at them. They are reaping the benefits of taking off season games seriously.

Prestige?

The other high profile basketball programs should take the CCL as a legitimate and serious competition. Otherwise we will be stuck in a Medieval mindset with our respective parochial interests.

Don't think that UST didn't take the league seriously last season. They did. However, they fell prey to the Bombers who were really willing to "(m)akipagpatayan" :D. Jervy didn't want to die and he, together with another palyer, paid dearly for it. They were both ejected from the game. Jojo tried valiantly to fight back but they just couldn't convert their shots.

UST tried to win the game but they lost to the more determined team.

Paano yan, dito sa CCL kailangan i-sweep. Isang talo lang laglag ka!

But we should expect UE to go out for a win here. They are the defending champions, kahit papano ay motivating factor yun for them to go all out here.

But with what just happened to them, palagay ko mahihirapan sila i-defend yan.

Yung last year, the Custodio Case was practically an alibi for not making the finals. Kaya, nanduon pa rin yung intimidation factor- na malakas sila at mahirap talunin.

Pero in this year's CCL, I doubt if they will intimidate anyone. In fact, I wouldn't be surprise if other teams will just snear when they find out they will be playing UE.

Ang alam ko last year UP and NU didn't face each other for the CCL.

NU, JRU and PMI were the three wildcards entries through media votes I believe. Now, it was questionable that PMI got an entry despite losing to MLQU in the finals of the CUSA. Unlike in the past, the CUSA champion was not given an invite for the tournament.

nastrans, hindi talaga naglaban ang UP at NU sa CCL last year. They only fought each other in trying to win that wild card entry from the UAAP, which was luckily won by NU.

Media votes lang ba ang basis for a wild card entry o may iba pang factors na ikino-consider?

Ito yung article from last year:

JRU, PMI, NU gain wildcard slot in Champ's League
by Josef Ramos

Jose Rizal U of NCAA, Philippine Maritime Institute of Colleges and Universities and Sports Association (CUSA), and National University of UAAP have gained enough votes to get a wildcard ticket in the coming 4th Collegiate Champions League.

The JRU Bombers, who finished NCAA with a 4-10 win-loss log, collected 28 votes from various reporters, columnist and sports editors to top the yesterday's press launch organized by Solar Sports at the National Sports Grill in Greenbelt Makati City.

The Philippine Maritime Institute Admirals took the second spot with 19 votes and the National U Bulldogs of Manny Dandan settled at third with 12 votes. This was the first time in history of college basketball that the teams were ranked by media.

"The addition of these three teams (JRU, PMI and NU) will make the 4th Collegiate Champions League more exciting and competitive," said CCL chairman Rey Gamboa, who also thanked the media for attending the press launched.

The three schools beat other candidates including University of the Philippines of UAAP and San Sebastian College of NCAA, STI Colleges of NAASCU and Manuel L Quezon University (MLQU) of CUSA to complete the Sweet 16 cast.

Already seeded in the Sweet 16 are UAAP teams Ateneo, University of Santo Tomas, University of the East and Adamson, NCAA teams San Beda College, Philippine Christian University, Letran and Mapua.

While the AMACU Titans of NAASCU, UCAA champion Emilio Aguinaldo College and NCRAA champion St. Francis Colleges of De Assisi are also included in the two-week event slated this early October.

There will be also two seeded teams from the Visayas-Mindanao regions.

The teams competing for the two slots in the Vis-Min area are the top four teams of CESAFI namely the University of Visayas , University of Cebu , University of San Carlos and San Jose Recoletos, NOPSEA champion West Negros Colleges and the champion of the ongoing DAA-Davao competition.

According to the letter sent to us (STI College Olympians- 7th NAASCU Champion), the CCL will start on the week ending November 10. Champion team will receive 500K worth of scholarship funding and athletic facilities. Other final four teams will receive prizes.

Winning it this year and making it to the CCL is a nice way of showing that our being considered as a wildcard entry last year is no fluke. I just hope that our team will fare well in the CCL.

We are just waiting for the seedings. Will just post as soon as there are details already.

One of my point is, let's say if UE ang mag champion dito (example lang). lalabas na La Salle is not the true champion in the UAAP and that goes with the NCAA and other league's, so if this happens may speculations nanaman na hindi seneryoso ang laro.

That is really one of our directions in the near future: to consolidate the semifinalists of each league and then put them together in ONE COLLEGIATE SUPER LEAGUE.

Last May, we began drawing up the blue print for such league with the aid of a consultant. We already approached some potential sponsors from Cebu and Manila but the UAAP and NCAA events clouded the proposal and at the same time the SBP had already allocated its funds mostly for international competitions. Yes, we already approached the SBP on this but we only got to stage 1.

Medyo masalimuot ang dadaanan to have ONE UNIFIED COLLEGIATE LEAGUE. For one, we have to synchronize the skeds of the schools and their respective basketball tournaments. Second, there has to be TV coverage. Third, which tournament rules are we going to adopt?

Well, we will see.....

Actually, you can expect the Bombers to be a lot more "physical" now compared to last year. The 2007 version of the Bombers is a lot meaner. They are proud of their bulked up bodies and they believe that they are the new bullies in the 'hood. Their basketball philosophy was lifted from that of the Pistons' bad boys era.

The problem however is that they love dishing it but they can't take it.

Solution is to just let your players play the game and your pack to do what is needed. ;)

Hi Guys! I see a lot of common faces (names actually) here!

This will be my first post here in gameface though I've been lurking around for almost a year... I think it's time to break my silence hehehe

Ways to improve The CCL and make it truly a prestigious league:

- Stronger marketing, so far it's only being shown in BTV (di pa live) I think it would be better to have it in Studio 23 instead or any local station (wag lang po Chanel 4 pls) and hype it more by creating commercials about the teams participating (though the initial commercial in BTV is good but there should be more). You can also hype it by featuring facts about old school rivals (ex Letran-LaSalle, SBC-ADMU, UST-SSC) Ganda rin kung may primer. But the key really is the station that will show the games...

- SBP should be involved; better yet they should be the one to organize the league. If the league is recognized by SBP then it adds more to the prestige and it really validates it as THE collegiate LEAGUE.

- Participants should just be the champion schools or if not at least the finalists of their respective leagues. I agree on some posts here that it is a battle of champions so it must stay true to that. The whole point is to crown the best collegiate team in the land and candidates should be at least champions of their own leagues.

- Better/more important prizes. The NATIONAL champion should get bigger prizes (not only monetary but also incentive trips too) and will be asked to go to Malacanang for a courtesy call to the President herself/himself.* ;)

- The Final 4 and the Finals should be in the ARANETA... unless truly necessary all games should be in the Big Dome. All games should be shown live in TV with the best commentators in amateur basketball (Butch, Sev, Bill, or even Vito L. heck sana si Quinito na lang at Ed Picson kung DLSU-Letran hehe)* ;D

- Make it a national thing. In the US the NCAA tournament is the most anticipated sports event and literally the whole nation gets excited especially if it's Final 4 time. I think this is because all the participation schools come from all over the US, in turn we must make sure to get participating teams from the whole land.

The only reason I see why this won't happen is because of the existing leagues themselves, specially the big 2; NCAA and UAAP. They know they will lose prestige if this happens; they will become a secondary league and not THE league to look forward to.

whew! haba na pala! Comments guys?* ;D

Hi Guys! I see a lot of common faces (names actually) here!

This will be my first post here in gameface though I've been lurking around for almost a year... I think it's time to break my silence hehehe

Ways to improve The CCL and make it truly a prestigious league:

- Stronger marketing, so far it's only being shown in BTV (di pa live) I think it would be better to have it in Studio 23 instead or any local station (wag lang po Chanel 4 pls) and hype it more by creating commercials about the teams participating (though the initial commercial in BTV is good but there should be more). You can also hype it by featuring facts about old school rivals (ex Letran-LaSalle, SBC-ADMU, UST-SSC) Ganda rin kung may primer. But the key really is the station that will show the games...

- SBP should be involved; better yet they should be the one to organize the league. If the league is recognized by SBP then it adds more to the prestige and it really validates it as THE collegiate LEAGUE.

- Participants should just be the champion schools or if not at least the finalists of their respective leagues. I agree on some posts here that it is a battle of champions so it must stay true to that. The whole point is to crown the best collegiate team in the land and candidates should be at least champions of their own leagues.

- Better/more important prizes. The NATIONAL champion should get bigger prizes (not only monetary but also incentive trips too) and will be asked to go to Malacanang for a courtesy call to the President herself/himself.* ;)

- The Final 4 and the Finals should be in the ARANETA... unless truly necessary all games should be in the Big Dome. All games should be shown live in TV with the best commentators in amateur basketball (Butch, Sev, Bill, or even Vito L. heck sana si Quinito na lang at Ed Picson kung DLSU-Letran hehe)* ;D

- Make it a national thing. In the US the NCAA tournament is the most anticipated sports event and literally the whole nation gets excited especially if it's Final 4 time. I think this is because all the participation schools come from all over the US, in turn we must make sure to get participating teams from the whole land.

The only reason I see why this won't happen is because of the existing leagues themselves, specially the big 2; NCAA and UAAP. They know they will lose prestige if this happens; they will become a secondary league and not THE league to look forward to.

whew! haba na pala! Comments guys?* ;D



Great effort in sharing your thoughts since it is your initial contribution. It would be a big improvement to the League if this would be the format. Anyway, Im still looking forward for the continues improvement of this event. BTW... Welcome!

I dont think that it's both the UAAP and NCAA management's fault that this league won't take it as a serious competition. The supporters can be a factor here because sure when they win the UAAP and NCAA titles it's going to be a big deal but when tournaments like these we won't see any casual fan going to cheer the tournament religiously, which the unfortunate reality.

Same goes for the lesser known teams, while it's going to be great to see them compete like a SFACS-DLSU match but I think that the students of St Francis, for example, will make this a big deal but yet wont consider this as a competitive spirit, may tendency kasi na mas konti ang support ng students sa sports teams nila when you're not a UAAP or NCAA member.

Yun siguro ang isa sa mga factors bakit hindi nagiging malaking buzz ang mga national tournament which is sad.

Just a thought. Kung Collegiate Champions League ito, e di dapat yung mga champion lang ng bawat liga ang mag laban-laban. One of my point is, let's say if UE ang mag champion dito (example lang). lalabas na La Salle is not the true champion in the UAAP and that goes with the NCAA and other league's, so if this happens may speculations nanaman na hindi seneryoso ang laro. Best of the Best dapat ika nga.


Actually tama yan kaya nga tinawag na Collegiate Champions League kaso ang idea ata nila is parang NCAA tournament. So misnomer yung pangalan ng liga.

Gameface gawa kayo ng liga, papasok lang lahat ng champions ng collegiate leagues sa boung bansa.* 8)


Gameface Collegiate Champions League.* ;D

* * *THIS early, I am very sure that the Champions League organizers will not even bother to invite this year's PISCUAA champion Philippine Merchant Marine School (PMMS).* Heck, I'm even thinking of the possibility they do not know that such a league and such a school exists!


How many and which league's are recognized by the legal body in the collegiate level?

That is really one of our directions in the near future: to consolidate the semifinalists of each league and then put them together in ONE COLLEGIATE SUPER LEAGUE.

Last May, we began drawing up the blue print for such league with the aid of a consultant. We already approached some potential sponsors from Cebu and Manila but the UAAP and NCAA events clouded the proposal and at the same time the SBP had already allocated its funds mostly for international competitions. Yes, we already approached the SBP on this but we only got to stage 1.

Medyo masalimuot ang dadaanan to have ONE UNIFIED COLLEGIATE LEAGUE. For one, we have to synchronize the skeds of the schools and their respective basketball tournaments. Second, there has to be TV coverage. Third, which tournament rules are we going to adopt?

Well, we will see.....


Yeah, more or less I understand what you mean. "masalimuot" nga. But, it would be great though if this idea would materialize.
Good Luck!

you have a point... kung sa soccer meron ganon... pero literally its misleading...

to gather all champions in the country... yun legitimate champions will definitely put more class to the league.... yun last years champion ng uaap and ncaa di nag champion... yun 3rd place pa ang nag champion na UE pa ang nag top...

not to deprive the others the chance to play, pero the fact remains... its main thrust is the same as the intercollegiate championships etc.... to set them apart from mediocre teams.... champions lang dapat mag laro dito...

What worries me is the rumor that Solar sports will not be offered to skycable subcribers come November. Pansin nyo sa channel 33 may mga test broadcast na channels na kapareho ng themes ng solar channel line-ups, Velvet, Balls, Viamaxx.

Sana rumors lang, but someone also told me that Sky's move prompted Solar to give the Manny-Barrera fight to GMA.
This would be a real lifeline to Destiny Cable, they were about to be extinct.

Collegiate Champions League opens November 10

24 October 2007 | 2:51 PM

Collegiate champions San Beda and De La Salle U banner the cast of schools that will see action in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League that is set to open on November 10.

Virgil Villavicencio, head of FilOil-Flying V Sports, the main supporter of the PCCL, said preparations are in the final phase for the tournament that officially concludes the college-basketball season.

“The emergence of college and university leagues makes it difficult to determine which is the nation’s best. As such, each league sends out its top squads in a postseason affair in a battle of champions,” Villavicencio said.

Runner-up Letran, and semifinalists Jose Rizal U and Mapua are the other NCAA teams, while losing finalist University of the East and final-four entrants Ateneo and Santo Tomas U are representing the UAAP.

Champions of four other leagues have already confirmed participation. Saint Francis of Assisi (Universities and Colleges Athletic Association), Manuel L. Quezon U (Colleges and Universities Sports Association), STI (National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities), and Arellano U (NCR Athletic Association) are also among the roster of teams. University of Western Visayas was also given a slot.

Villavicencio said teams from Eastern Visayas and Mindanao have yet to confirm invitation.

The tournament will be played at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in Manila and The Arena in San Juan.

The PCCL is patterned after the US NCAA Division One playoffs.

It will use the knockout format which means losers are automatically eliminated. The seeding of the 16 teams will be decided by a sportswriters’ poll a day before the start of the tournament.

Scholarships will be doled out to the members of the champion school, besides P500,000 cash prize. The runner-up gets P250,000, while third place receives P100,000.

Contrary to what some sources have stated, DLSU is NOT YET COMMITTED to join the CCL. The reasons for these are that some of our players are already playing for different teams in the PBL. Also, those not playing in the PBL have not practiced nor played together since Oct. 7. Not a single second of practise by the team as a team. Giving our players a chance to rest and for them to concentrate on their studies is the reason for the shut down in their practices.

However, last night, Coach Franz had asked the players if THEY want to join this tournament. He told them that if they want to join the tournament, they should join with the purpose of trying to win the title. Not like some teams who just play their reserves or Team B in the tournament. The players will make their decision over this long weekend.

So, DLSU is not yet committed to play in the CCL. BUT if the team decides to do so, the crowd can be assured that they will play with the desire to win the crown and not just be there for the sake of being there. I believe if DLSU opts out, FEU will take DLSU's place. Now a tournament with UE, ADMU, UST and FEU is still something to watch for.

bluefix90, if you really know bchoter, the word "lintek" was not deliberate and was not said to berate any individual nor the esteemed coach ariel vanguardia. In my most honest opinion, it was said in jest - looks more of a pabiro perhaps because of his personal impression about him.

We respect your opinion and in so doing, we also recognize that some statements that are made or posted here may not be pleasant to everybody. And so, I will edit the post and delete the word "lintek" just to put a stop to this issue and not to make it bigger.

Now, back to the topic everybody. Thanks.*

I thought the CCL was set up, specifically so a team cannot send their Team B in the tournament, or any other team than the ones they played w/ in their respective leagues?

KingRedLion
10-27-2007, 08:46 PM
has it ever happened before that a participating school was able to field in players from their Team B or practice pool? As what Schortsanitis mentioned, and from what I understand as well, with reference to the post of Oca(someone pls correct me if I'm mistaken), the league/tournament is set up in such that only the school's Team A, or whoever they play/field in in their respective collegiate leagues, will be allowed to play?

I could be wrong though...someone soundly knowledgeable please enlighten us further on this? Because it seems to me that some members are making color of things that may, in the first place, be at all non-existent. ;)

10-28-2007, 08:26 AM
I also have the impression that CCL rules provide that competing schools should field in the lineup that they use in their main tournament (i.e., UAAP for Ateneo, NCAA for San Beda). They're allowed to use reinforcements from their training pool - and they should be because senior players may already be playing in the PBL or whatever - but IIRC these players will give up one year of eligibility in the main tournament in exchange for their participation.

So hindi naman bawal magsama ng Team B players; malaki lang yung kapalit para sa kanila kung gawin mo yun, mas lalo na kung bata pa yung manlalaro at malaki yung probabilidad niyang umangat sa Team A. :-\

Fil-Oil/ Flying V Philippine Collegiate Champion Cup

Three provincial collegiate champion teams are in the elite group of ‘Sweet Sixteen’ for this year’s competition for the coveted Fil-Oil Flying V Philippine Collegiate Champion Cup. They will join the champions and top rated teams from major leagues in Metro Manila in a knock-out (losers go home) tournament to determine the best collegiate team for the 2007 season.

The qualifying provincial teams are the University of Visayas Green Lancers, CESAFI champion; Western Negros Colleges Mustangs, representing NOPSEA; and Sacred Heart Colleges Stallions, representing the Tacloban City collegiate league.

Four teams are still battling it out to represent Mindanao in the elite group of 16 teams.

For this year’s Collegiate Champions League (CCL) competitions, the Fil-Oil Flying V Sports group headed by Virgil Villavicencio has put up the prizes to be awarded to the Final Four. These include scholarships and athletic facilities funding in the total amount of P850,000.

The CCL competitions shall start on the 10th of November 2007. All the exciting games will be covered by Solar Entertainment. Watch for it.

hi, anybody knows where we can find a link re: CCL eligibility rules? Does a player need to be enrolled or in the training team prior to competition or can a prospect suit up?

This Champions League is NOT a 'major' league! Its only an INVITATIONAL tournament which only a few schools take seriously. Mas big league pa nga PAYA, PRADA, SBP and PASARELLE compared to this tournament where the teams involved send their BEST players and play their hearts out. Instead, this is just another commercial venture disguising itself as a tournament. A chance to make more money for the TV station and other interests. Note: NCAA Champion San Beda will not be fielding the same team that won the NCAA crown as one of its MAIN stalwarts, Yousef Al Jamal, is already playing in the PBA. DLSU has several of its top players already playing in the PBL and its doubtful if their teams would allow them to play in this INVITATIONAL.

So, how can this be a TRUE Champions League when the top Champion teams of the NCAA and the UAAP will, if at all, field INCOMPLETE line-ups? Also, after the brawl that took place in the Unigames, there is a real danger that our players, not having practiced or played together since Oct. 7, could be injured in this INVITATIONAL. Why risk it? Remember, DLSU is still, as of this writing, NOT committed to participate in this tournament.

This is JUST ANOTHER off season tournament, if ever. I say, give our guys a break. Resume training and workouts in January in preparation of UAAP 71. Skip this and any other tournaments altogether until January 2008. Let our boys enjoy the Holidays with their family and friends. THEY HAVE CERTAINLY EARNED THIS BREAK!!! Why deprive them of that?

Better that the UAAP be represented by UE (who takes all the off season tournaments seriously), UST, ADMU & FEU (the last two schools coming fresh from the Unigames). At least with these READY-TO-ROLL teams, the Champions League should be good enough to watch.

O I C. . . . . . I guess there should be a SERIOUS drive from all other schools to fully commit to the CCL.

GIve La Salle a BREAK. After several seasons full of SCANDALS they wouldn't take it if they are the UAAP champions YET losing to someone in the CCL.

gameface_one thanks for taking up the cudgels for me. And yes, the 'lintek' part was said in jest.

Going back to the topic, I think, save for the now pros, the CCL requires that the Team A represent the school. Otherwise, non-team A players will run the risk of losing their playing eligibility. That's why I think that GA's fear of having Team Bs won't happen.

This league's main draw, for me, is the possibility of upsets. Last year UST was ambushed by the, ehem, BOMBERS, and had to endure some snide remarks from other schools. Which is not totally undeserved considering that ignominy of a UAAP champion losing to a non-champion from a supposedly lesser league. Coach Pido offered no excuses (of course that's not always the case for some Thomasians). At least the Tigers had a few scrimmages prior to the CCL they were intact with not one playing in the PBL at that time.

UST Team A starts practicing soon as the second sem starts with light early morning practices. Save for Japs, the rest have no conflict in their schedules. Serious training starts in 2008.

FYI lang kaibigan, the CCL came about on the need to come up with a "NCAA March Madness type of a tournament"- like that in the US.

This event came about on the initiatives of Joe Lipa.

It came at a time when the National Inter-Collegiate had long lost its credibility and luster. When The BAP was imbroiled in a lot of controversies, that both the NCAA and UAAP had refused to send any type of a team at all, as they had distanced themselves from the then governing body.

The early stagings and the initial rounds were then played in school gyms for it doesn't have enough funds and sponsors that would allow organizers to rent public venues for the duration of the tournament.

Kung may pumasok man na sponsor ngayon at nagmukhang commercial undertaking ngayon na lang yan. Pero, for any event wanting in continuity and planning to go big it must have a source of funding- sponsorship answers that need.

But the idea in having this event is easy enough to understand --- the need for this basketball crazy nation to have a national collegiate champion. That's the idea behind the CCL.

The timing may be off, but last year this was held in October immediately after the NCAA and UAAP. The schedule was criticized for it was in conflict with the 1st sem finals. Holding it in early November seems ideal for most schools.

Kung ang isang paaralan at ang kanilang mga supporters ay malamig sa event na ito, they can simply refuse to join. Each will have its valid reason. They just have to state it simply.

Huwag nang pintasan ang event at bigyan ng kung ano-anong label. Dahil alam naman nating lahat na kahit ang UAAP basketball event na naturingang school competition ay pinatatakbong parang isang commercial venture.

Malayo pa talaga para mag-karoon ng intensified US March Madness equivalent ang Pinas. I think the organizers attempted gain the interest and seriousness by increasing the pot money to Php500k but then wala parin masyado. We cannot blame the participants as there would always be valid considerations/reasons behind.

Prestige. Thats it. And not to tag this leauge as one of those off season leauges. Yan ang dapat ma-build na rapport ng CCL organizers.

Pero para sa aming mga die hards.... sige tira lang. ;D

Hindi kaya pinipilit masyado ang isang bagya na hindi uubra for the Philippine setting?

March Madness it seems is a purely ingrained in the American culture. Now we are trying to copy it but its not working since it isn't in our culture.

A two barreled league is what we have during the first semester. Baka yun lang ang gusto ng tao and that's it. ???

Don't get me wrong, I agree, there SHOULD BE a definitive tournament where the best in the country come together and play their hearts out to determine the one and true collegiate champion. All I am saying that this tournament remains an INVITATIONAL and unless the BAP-SBP comes in as to accrediting this tournament to be the definitive tournament in the country, many schools, and not just DLSU, may not take this tournament that seriously. AND when a tournament is not taken seriously by several schools, this opens the door to events which I personally would not like to see our players get in.

As for DLSU, the team will make its decision anytime now. One of the things they are considering is that all our non-PBL players have not practised as a team since Oct. 7. DLSU IS NOT PREPARED TO PLAY COMPETITIVELY in this tournament. Sending them to a tournament despite being out of shape with little or no serious practice augers badly for the team. Everyone wants, as ALL Lasallians do, to see any DLSU Basketball team playing to be a competitive one and at least prepared. At this point, DLSU is NOT prepared for active competitions. Bringing this kind of team to this tournament will not just be an injustice to all Lasallians and supporters, but to THE LEAGUE ITSELF. It would not be fair to the tournament and to ALL schools' supporters to see a DLSU team playing unprepared. You would be throwing your money away to watch a DLSU team not prepared to play.

If your team was in this same situation, would you still want them to play in this tournament knowing they are in no shape to play with the best?

ADMU and FEU are fresh from the Unigames. UE is in constant practise mode and will go all out to redeem themselves. UST has a big player pool that should make the Tigers one of the teams to watch. DLSU has none of that. The team has NOT practised even once, we don't have reserve players to replace at least those playing in the PBL. In short, at best, the DLSU team at this moment could probably duplicate UP's UAAP performace if they play in the CCL in this condition.

Yes, I want to see a definitive tournament too. But under the current circumstances, FEU will probably make a better game out of it, being UNIGAMES Champions, than the Green Archers can.

WE ARE NOT AFRAID TO LOSE. But I am afraid to lose when our team is in no condition to compete. This will be present golden opportunities to incur crippling injuries. As I too want this tournament to succeed and get BAP-SBP's eventual nod as the premier collegiate championship, it is only right that a better prepared team - FEU - takes DLSU's place. Then again, the team may decide otherwise and play.

Baka kailangan mag-offer din ng "championship rings" para sa eventual champion ng mga CCL organizers para seryosohin. ;D ;D

Seriously I can only think of the following to improve this CCL tournament:

- This tournament will never be taken seriously until the organizers can build up the prestige of the tournament and tag the winner as the true national champion
- I also see the necessity of SBP participation in marketing this tournament as the overall tournament to determine the national champion
- Fix the schedules and conflicts. Kung hindi ma-momove ang 1st sem schedule then singit na lang sa semestral break so as not to distract classes (except na lang siguro sa naka tri-sem ;D)
- Let each collegiate leauge (UAAP, NCAA et. al.) body compel thier respective winners/and or participats to join and take the tournament seriously

i can sleep better if the people behind CCL (Mr. Marquez and Coach Joe) will work hand in hand with BAP-SBP and the original BAP, plus PBL. Dapat naka calendar mabuti ang CCL. To proclaim the ultimate national champion will be something to look forward. pero kung kulang kulang ang teams eh, review natin kung kelan talaga ang right time to run the CCL.

i can sleep better if the games will be played in Araneta Coliseum. its the mecca of basketball in the philippines.

Smart Collegiate basketball awards

The forthcoming Collegiate National Championship organized by the Collegiate Champions League (CCL) and presented by Fil-Oil Flying V Sports will have as highlight the granting of special collegiate basketball awards. This was made possible by the chairman of BAP-Samahang Basketbol sa Pilipinas (BAP-SBP), Manuel V. Pangilinan, who provided an additional P500,000 prize fund for outstanding team and individual performances during the CCL games.

To be called “smart Collegiate Basketball Awards,” these are: Most Valuable Player(awardee of MVP Cup), Members of Mythical Teams, Best Defensive Team, Coach of the Series and the Best Performing Referee.

All the exciting games starting 10th November 2007 will be covered by Solar Entertainment. Watch for it.

Perhaps the CCL should offer cash, like say P1 million tax free to the champion, and P500,000 to the runnerup teams just to make this truly interesting. This prize money shall be handed out in individually made-out and evenly divided checks ONLY TO PLAYERS OFFICIALLY LINED UP, COACHES, UTILITY PERSONNEL and TEAM PHYSICIANS/THERAPISTS. Managers do not get any share.

So if there if the official team manifest shows 14 players, 1 head coach, 2 assistant coaches, 1 therapist and 2 utility boys, that's an even P50,000 if this team should become champion, and P25,000 if they come in second, PER PERSON.

I don't know about you guys but this old soul says that kind of money is enough to entice the best players to pester their teams to play their hearts and guts out for that CCL Crown.

That prize money can easily be sponsored by any of the giant corporations like PLDT or SMC; that would not even be a tithe of what they spend on one Luzon-wide ad campaign.

Take it from the legendary sports philosopher Rod Tidwell, this is where we get our Kwan. 8)

sir sam miguel,

comment lang po..... definitely, for some school owners, offering the cash prize to the members of the team will be a big issue..pag aawayan pa yan.this will take away on what we call " BRAGGING RIGHTS" , the honor of being called the champion of all champions.... pag pera na paglalabanan na-corrupt uli ang motive ng mga bata to play for pride and glory.....

The 2007 Collegiate Champions League: there should be only one
by Mike Abasolo
Sunday, 4th November 2007

There can be only one. One Collegiate Champion. The last time I covered as an analyst for the Collegiate Champions League (CCL) was in 2005. Now on its 5th season, it will be very interesting to watch 16 Collegiate Teams coming from all over the country prove who is THE best collegiate team in the land.

The following teams have already expressed their participation, and they are, with thier respective monicker as observed by our good friend, Mr. Dave Dualan:

With the Soldier Monicker, they are, the La Salle Green Archers, UE Red Warriors, JRU Heavy Bombers, Arellano Chiefs, STI Olympians and the University of the Visayas - Cebu Green Lancers.

With the Bird species monicker are, the Ateneo Blue EAGLES, St. Francis DOVES and Mapua CARDINALS.

The Horses monicker have the MLQU Stallions, West Negros Mustangs and the Sacred Heart Tacloban Mustangs. While the big cats monicker have San Beda Red LIONS and the UST Growling Tigers.

And as of this moment a representative from Davao has yet to send in its intent to join in the competition. Basketball TV will do the live telecast of the games on BTV.

To give you an idea of the schedule so you can plan out your trip to the games, here is the time & place while the match ups will follow:

Nov 10 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- Ninoy Aquino Stadium
Nov 12 - 2:00pm and 4:00pm (2 games) - San Beda Gym
Nov 13 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- Ninoy Aquino Stadium
Nov 14 - 2:00pm and 4:00pm (2 games) - Blue Eagle - Loyola Gym
Nov 15 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- ARENA in San Juan
Nov 15 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- ARENA in San Juan

ELITE 8 - Nov 19 & 21
FINAL 4 - Nov 26
Finals - November 28

Dahil SMART Collegiate Awards ang tawag, dapat di malito ang babasa na binigay ni MVP ang cash incentives in his personal capacity.

From its inception the CCL was independent of the BAP, when Basketball Pilipinas came about, the CCL did not affiliate itself with this body and continued to stage the event on its own.

About 2 years ago, Basketball Pilipinas organized its own national championship by staging the National Students Championship. The National Inter-Collegiate went on and was still organized by the BAP. Magkasunod ginawa yan.

Now, wala na sa poder ang BAP. Pero sa unang taon ng SBP, hindi nila tinanghal ang National Students Championship >:(.

Wala pa namang press release na nagsasabi na may basbas na ng SBP ang darating na CCL.

Ang punto ko-- Sa ngayon, ang CCL ay isang independent event (with SMART as one of the sponsor).

Pero di ako magtataka kung mag-organize pa rin ang SBP ng isang event na tulad ng National Student's Championship. Kaya yung mga hindi-solve dito sa CCL, ipagdasal niyo na kumilos ang SBP para magkaroon ng isang event tulad ng National Students Championship ( o National Inter-Collegiate, depende ano maganda sa pandinig niyo ;D).

But in the meantime, lets enjoy what is to begin this Saturday.

This is gameface.... kahit anong liga, laban. Yung mapili... magbakasyon muna kayo at huwag makigulo dito. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

The 2007 Collegiate Champions League: there should be only one
by Mike Abasolo
Sunday, 4th November 2007

There can be only one. One Collegiate Champion. The last time I covered as an analyst for the Collegiate Champions League (CCL) was in 2005. Now on its 5th season, it will be very interesting to watch 16 Collegiate Teams coming from all over the country prove who is THE best collegiate team in the land.

The following teams have already expressed their participation, and they are, with thier respective monicker as observed by our good friend, Mr. Dave Dualan:

With the Soldier Monicker, they are, the La Salle Green Archers, UE Red Warriors, JRU Heavy Bombers, Arellano Chiefs, STI Olympians and the University of the Visayas - Cebu Green Lancers.

With the Bird species monicker are, the Ateneo Blue EAGLES, St. Francis DOVES and Mapua CARDINALS.

The Horses monicker have the MLQU Stallions, West Negros Mustangs and the Sacred Heart Tacloban Mustangs. While the big cats monicker have San Beda Red LIONS and the UST Growling Tigers.

And as of this moment a representative from Davao has yet to send in its intent to join in the competition. Basketball TV will do the live telecast of the games on BTV.

To give you an idea of the schedule so you can plan out your trip to the games, here is the time & place while the match ups will follow:

Nov 10 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- Ninoy Aquino Stadium
Nov 12 - 2:00pm and 4:00pm (2 games) - San Beda Gym
Nov 13 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- Ninoy Aquino Stadium
Nov 14 - 2:00pm and 4:00pm (2 games) - Blue Eagle - Loyola Gym
Nov 15 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- ARENA in San Juan
Nov 15 12nn (1 game only before PBL)- ARENA in San Juan

ELITE 8 - Nov 19 & 21
FINAL 4 - Nov 26
Finals - November 28

IT'S DEFINITE!

DLSU WILL NOT JOIN THE 2007 COLLEGIATE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.

It is my hope that with DLSU not participating, the Unigames Champion FEU Tamaraws will take La Salle's place in this tournament.

De La Salle Green Archers aim for National Collegiate title

Franz Pumaren, multi-titled coach of DLSU Green Archers, is gearing up his team to go for the top spot in the forthcoming Collegiate National Championship. This was disclosed by Patrick “Pato” Gregorio, BAP-SBP executive director during a meeting with BAP-SBP chairman, Manuel V. Pangilinan together with Virgil Villavicencio of Fil-Oil Flying V Sports and Solar Entertainment vice president, Jude Turcuatro.

The Green Archers, current UAAP champion, will compete with 15 other top* collegiate teams from Metro Manila, Cebu, Bacolod, Tacloban and Davao in a knockout tournament (losers go home) organized by the Collegiate Champions League (CCL) and presented by Fil-Oil Flying V Sports and the Villavicencio group of companies.

TECHNICAL OPERATIONS OF THE GAMES:

Mr. Chino Trinidad is the Commissioner of the Collegiate Champions League and together with his technical and support team will be responsible for all the operational and technical aspects of the tournament.

Players who are playing in the PBL will be allowed to play for their respective collegiate teams. The scheduling of both PBL and CCL games will consider this particular situation.

Only players who have been drafted in the professional league (PBA) may be replaced by a team. The replacement player, however, must be approved by the “mother league” of the concerned team.

All qualified teams are to submit their official line-up as approved/fielded during their respective league competitions. However, CCL reserves the right to disallow/disqualify players in the spirit of fair collegiate basketball competition as advocated by the League.





MEDIA COVERAGE:

CCL is in partnership with Solar Entertainment for the television coverage of the games. Part of the support being provided by Solar is the media promotion of the games thru television pluggings and inclusion of CCL stories in their sports update shows.

Mabuti naman at sinama ang mga detalyeng ito sa press release. These are matters that will be perpetually raised every year.

--"Pwede ba maglaro ang Team B players?"

--"Paano yung mga teams who lost player(s) to the PBA?" Though this concern the NCAA teams, mabuti na rin at malinaw sa basketball public kung ano ang pwedeng gawin ng apektadong teams.

Not to hype this event, pero dahil lahat naman tayo ay nagtatanong kung ano ang kahihinatnan pag nagtagpo ang teams ng iba't-iba't collegiate leagues. Well, this is the best we can have for now.

Not bad, imo.

The team - players, coaches and management - came to a consensus NOT to join the Collegiate Champions League. This was relayed to me by none other than Coach Franz Pumaren. Again, this is because they have not played together since Oct. 7 and to participate without much practise, would be an injustice to all the fans who will watch this invitational.

IT'S DEFINITE - DLSU WILL NOT JOIN THIS INVITATIONAL.

Good luck to all the other teams!!!

^^^Although I cannot dispute the credibility of GreenArrows' post, my sources also tell me otherwise. Franz cannot turn down Raffy Villlavicencio and other "powerful" personalities behind the league.

GreenArrows
11-06-2007, 08:41 PM
I sent a text last night to Coach Franz, who is with the team in Hong Kong, and asked "Are we joining the Champions League? If so, will our PBL players play? If not, who will replace them?" Coach Franz then sent me this text "We won't"

Tonight, I received another text from Dendu Anareta, team statistician who is also with the team in Hong Kong, "We won't be playing in the Champions League"

I then asked if they have already informed the CCL of their decision and his reply was "Not yet. ...(small talk)..... we're stl in HK. SBP really want us in. I dunno if they'll try to convince....."

From what I know, up till this moment, the SBP has been trying to convince the team to change their mind. Personally, in their current stage of non-preparation, it would be better and safer for the team to skip this invitational. Then again, the SBP officials are really doing their best to make the team change their mind.

I hope the DLSU Green Archers releases an official press release on their involvement in the CCL since there seems to be some confusion about whether they will do so or not.

So far, the only official press release we have gotten from the DLSU Green Archers is that they will be joining the competitions.

Regarding their not joining the competitions, its likely they are mulling about it, but I guess that doesn't make it official unless they go out & issues out an official press release about it.

GF1 any word why the Knights pulled out?

I think DLSU did the right thing in pulling out instead of joining half-heartedly. Maybe the UCAA champs can be considered among the possible replacements.

FEU is ranked higher than UST. They were deemed a better team because of their head-to-head match up?

Look at it this way.

Eventually, all of us would want to hail one collegiate team as numero uno for the year. A team with the same line-up it had fielded in its home league. Hardly will anyone deny* that desire to hail a national champion.

With the CCL, may pinasimulan na.

Call it birth pains, that not evryone takes it seriously. Not all are eager to join. But if this event will be held continuously and the games prove to be exciting, di maglalaon it will get the attention of the general public.

One can write about ideal set-up, ideal schedule, ideal format. That will all be waste of key strokes or ink, until...you put it into action!

Eto ngayon ang action! Naka-limang edition na. With every passing year, more people watch and talk about the games.

If there's something about the CCL we don't like, let's write about it. Pintas man yan, if stated well, I am sure organizers will take note.

Ang importante, "May pinasimulana na.", let's bear that in mind.

At duon sa mga kuntentong manatili sa kanilang maliit na paraiso, sa kung ano mang dahilan. Let them be. Hindi sila kawalan

Pero huwag din pintasan ang di pagsali ng alin mang paaralan. Tama lang na hindi sumali ang hindi handa. Nang sa ganoon, walang palusot kung matalo. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Dito sa gameface, pagtapatin mo ang dalawang collegiate team. Mag-abiso ka ng maaga. Pag-uusapan yan. Pag may TV coverage, tiyak mas marami ang makikisalo sa usapan. Kung sa iba ay walang dating ang liga o ang match-ups---- lumayas sila sa gameface! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Sana meron ilabas na write-ups regarding sa mga teams na kasali especially yong mga galing VIS-MIN. Parang intro ala UAAP and NCAA na pinapublish sa dyaryo before the start of the leauge. Or kung hindi man sa dyaryo at least dito sa gameface or sa CCL website.

Bago pa matapos NCAA, UAAP and all other league alam naman ng lahat na merong CCL. At that point palang respective college teams already know that an "invitation" is coming soon. Kung sa simula palang wala na intention thats answers it all. For me we cannot dwell on the reason na kulang sa practice or unprepared specially if that reasons has been floating for several weeks or more than a month. Like what I said, we cant force a team kung ayaw nila sumali. KJ? Maybe but its a matter of perspective nino. Besides everyone deserves a rest and freedom of choice. Sa kagaya kong debit at credit ang alam, isa sa mga prinsipyo namin kung in doubt ka position mo, take the conservatism principle. ;)

Archers, Lions head Champs League cast


By Romina Austria
Inquirer
Last updated 04:16am (Mla time) 11/07/2007


MANILA, Philippines -- They have proven that they’re the best in their respective leagues. It’s time to test their true worth when ranged against other champions.

The country’s best collegiate teams, led by University Athletic Association of the Philippines champion De La Salle University and National Collegiate Athletic Association winner San Beda College, will mix it up in the Fil-Oil/Flying V 5th National Collegiate Champions Cup starting Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Green Archers earned the top seeding in the 16-team with the Red Lions ranking second.

Ateneo de Manila University, UAAP third placer, and defending champion University of the East are seeded third and fourth, respectively.

La Salle capped its comeback from a one-year suspension with a sweep of UE in the UAAP finals. It was the Taft-based squad’s seventh league championship since joining the league in 1986.

San Beda beat Letran College for its second straight title and 13th overall.

Players seeing action in the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) will be allowed to play for their respective college teams, according to chair Reynaldo Gamboa.

Last year, UE defeated San Beda in the tournament final with Jose Rizal University placing third over Mapua Institute of Technology.

University of Santo Tomas, Far Eastern University, JRU, San Sebastian College and Mapua are also in the Champions’ League fold.

Other league titlists competing are Manuel L. Quezon University (CUSA), STI (NAASCU), St. Francis of Assisi College (UCAA), University of Visayas (CESSAFI), West Negros College (Negros).

Rounding out the cast are Tacloban’s Sacred Heart College, Unigames third placer Lyceum of the Philippines University and the winner of the ongoing Davao collegiate league.

La Salle, UV, San Sebastian and the Davao champion are bracketed in Group A while the Warriors head Group B, which also includes FEU, MLQU and STI College.

San Beda is in Group C along with UST, Mapua and Sacred Heart College.

Group D is made up of Ateneo, JRU, WNC and Lyceum.

The champion of the knockout-format event, which will run until Nov. 28, wins P500,000 worth of sports scholarships. The next three finishers will get P200,000, P100,000 and P50,000.

Smart Communications Inc. has also put up special prizes for the Most Valuable Player (M.V. Pangilinan Cup awardee), Mythical teams, best defensive team, coach of the series and the best performing referee

For clarification: Sabay ba ang CCL at Fil-oil/ Flying V league (The writer mentioned opening on saturday) or is this realy the CCL his refering about?


Fil-Oil po ang sponsor ng CCL na magbubukas sa Sabado. Walang pong Flying V League na magaganap na makakasabay ng CCL.

Mantakin mo, Fil-Oil Flying V is getting a lot of exposure before and after the big leagues - UAAP and NCAA. Pre Season and then CCL. Not bad.

TECHNICAL OPERATIONS OF THE GAMES:

Mr. Chino Trinidad is the Commissioner of the Collegiate Champions League and together with his technical and support team will be responsible for all the operational and technical aspects of the tournament.

Players who are playing in the PBL will be allowed to play for their respective collegiate teams. The scheduling of both PBL and CCL games will consider this particular situation.

Only players who have been drafted in the professional league (PBA) may be replaced by a team. The replacement player, however, must be approved by the “mother league” of the concerned team.

All qualified teams are to submit their official line-up as approved/fielded during their respective league competitions. However, CCL reserves the right to disallow/disqualify players in the spirit of fair collegiate basketball competition as advocated by the League.




Sa simula pa lang naging tanong na nang marami yung possible conflict between the CCL and the ongoing PBL. So, to make things easier, kuning commissioner ng CCL ang kume ng PBL!

Genio! ;D


Last year, the PCCL also used the PBL referees and Kume Chino was also the PCCL Commissioner.

^ According to a friend who watched the UST-JRU game last year, the Tigers seem taken by surprise by the officiating. Another friend even joked that they were surprised referees call fouls against them :D.

I saw the SBC-JRU game and the calls seem ok

National Collegiate Champions Cup

La Salle, SBC are top seeds
mb.com.ph



University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) champion La Salle and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) titlist San Beda are the top seeds in the Fil-Oil/Flying V National Collegiate Champions Cup set to kick off Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.



The Green Archers, who swept University of the East in the UAAP Finals, have been seeded No. 1 in the 16-team, knockout tournament.

The Red Lions, on the other hand, are ranked No. 2 ahead of third seed Ateneo de Manila and No. 4 UE, the defending champion.

If the form chart holds, the Archers will face the Warriors in the semifinals while the Lions take on the Blue Eagles.

Last year, the Warriors defeated the Lions in the final. Jose Rizal took third place while Mapua settled for fourth spot.

Twelve other teams are entered, including University of Santo Tomas and Far Eastern University from the UAAP and Jose Rizal, San Sebastian and Mapua from the NCAA.

Conspicuously absent is NCAA runner-up Letran which begged off.

Champions from the different leagues round up the cast, namely: CUSA champion Manuel L. Quezon University, NAASCU titlist STI, UCAA winner St. Francis of Assisi, CESSAFI champion University of Visayas, Negros titlist West Negros, Tacloban representative Sacred Heart College, Unigames third placer Lyceum University and the winner of the ongoing Davao collegiate league.

The teams have been divided into four groups with La Salle, UV, San Sebastian, and the Davao champion forming Group A.

The Warriors lead Group B which also includes FEU, STI, and MLQU.

The Lions, on the other hand, banner Group C also made up of UST, Mapua, and Sacred Heart College.

Group D is composed of Ateneo, Jose Rizal, West Negros College, and Lyceum.

The winner of the annual event, now on its fifth year, will receive P500,000 in the form of sports scholarships. The next three finishers will get P200,000, P100,000 and P50,000 in that order.

Smart has also put up special prizes for the Most Valuable Player (M.V. Pangilinan Cup awardee), members of two Mythical teams, best defensive team, coach of the series and the best performing referee.

Chino Trinidad has been named commissioner and will be responsible for all the operational and technical aspects of the tournament which will run up to Nov. 28.

Players seeing action in the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) will be allowed to play for their respective college teams, according to CCL chairman Reynaldo Gamboa.

Solar Entertainment has been tapped to provide television coverage of the event.

Aside from the Ninoy Aquino Stadium, games will be held at the Loyola Gym, San Beda College gym, and at The Arena in San Juan, site of the quarterfinals, semifinals and final.

No OFFICIAL word yet on DLSU's participation. I would not be surprised if the organizers reschedule DLSU's game and move it to the final day of the first round matches, switch the Nov 15 and 17 games just to give the Archers more time to prepare. A gesture to convince Franz and his boys to compete. Pero pag ayaw talaga, eh di huwag! ::)

Green Lancers leave for CCL
By Caecent No-ot Magsumbol
The Freeman
Friday, November 9, 2007

Defending CESAFI champion the University of the Visayas Green Lancers leave for Manila on November 14 to compete in the 5th Collegiate Champion’s League.

Sixteen top collegiate teams in the country will participate in the knockout competition where the losers go home.

The teams were divided into four groups. The Green Lancers are in Group A and had drawn wild card entry Lyceum of the Philippines for its first game.

Should they win, the Green Lancers will go up against reigning UAAP champion De La Salle University.

Coach Elmer “Boy” Cabahug, in an interview with The Freeman, said that he told his wards to give their best because of the knockout format of the tournament.

“Dili bakasyon ang ila adto-an so dapat mopakita gyud sila,” (“They are not going on vacation, so they must play hard.”) Cabahug said.

Cabahug hopes to erase the stigma of his team’s unforgettable stint last year when Sam Ekwe-led San Beda College booted them out early.

To prepare his wards, Cabahug had his team play in local tournaments like the Mayor’s Cup in Lapu-Lapu, where they won the crown.

Cabahug also said that unlike last year when they were outrebounded by other teams, this time it would be different.

The presence of 6’11 Fil-Am giant Gregory Fuentes Slaughter, the seasoned Ariel Mepaña along with bangers Michael Luga and Rino Berami in the lineup will be more than enough for UV to control the paint.

“Last year, we were out rebounded. We had a small line-up, Mepaña was not around because of injury, so wa gyud ta kasugakod (“so were unable to cope.”). This year, we have a taller line-up so I hope that we will do better,” coach Cabahug said.

Cabahug also said that for them to succeed this year, his players must follow his instructions to the letter because they will be playing with only two legitimate pointguards in Von Harry Lanete and Chris Victor Diputado during the tournament.

The coach also said that unlike in Cebu where they are the crowd favorite, the fans in Manila would be unfriendly, too noisy and boisterous, matter of fact, that last year he and his players could barely hear each other in the court.*

He expects the same this year, so Cabahug devised a plan for his players to understand his instructions better.

“Grabe kaayo ang crowd sa Manila. Puwerte pa gyud ka banha, di na mi magdungog gani. Ako na gi-practice ang mga players nato to respond well to sign language.” (“The crowd in Manila was unfriendly. They were so noisy that my players and me could not hear each other. So I have practiced the players to respond well to sign language.”) Cabahug said.

The winner of the tournament will bring home the bragging rights of being the best collegiate team in the country. The team will also go home with funding/scholarship money amounting to P500,000 for the benefit of the school’s sporting program.

The runner-up, third placer and fourth placer will receive P200,000, P100,000 and P50,000, respectively.

Special awards will also be given to outstanding individual and team performances during the tournament such as the MVP, Members of the Mythical teams (Team A and Team B), Best Defensive Team, Coach of the Series and Best Performing Referee.

Last year’s winners were the University of the East, San Beda, Jose Rizal University and Mapua Institute of Technology.

Cabahug said that after the CCL, his team would immediately see action in the VAAA.

UV seeks national title
Sunstar Cebu
Friday, November 09, 2007

AMIDST all the ruckus the University of the Visayas is not letting it distract the team as it gears up for the Collegiate Champions League set to start on Nov. 10 at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Green Lancers, who are the undisputed powerhouse of the South, will be pitting skills against 15 other top teams in different leagues all over the country.

After claiming every single title they could get their hands on here in Cebu, UV now hopes to snag a national title for the first time.

“We have been preparing doubly hard. We are practicing twice daily now. We target to take it one game at a time and hope to finish in the top four and then the finals,” said Cabahug, who is hungry for a national title.

Cabahug said that he will be banking on his strong five to carry the cudgels of winning.

“I will be pinning my hopes on the top five. The rest will be put in depending on the situation,” Cabahug added.

Cabahug will be leaning on Von Lañete, Ariel Mepaña, Michael Luga, Ritchum Dennison and Rino Berame.

UV, which recently claimed its seventh Cesafi title, will be the only Cebu team in the competition and its hunt for the elusive national title will be paved with huge hurdles on their way.

The University Athletic Association of the Philippines, led by champion De La Salle University with runnerup University of the East, Ateneo de Manila will be competing as well as National Collegiate Athletic Association’s San Beda College, Jose Rizal University, Mapua and San Sebastian.

MLQ University, STI Olympians, West Negros College and Sacred Heart College, champions in their respective leagues, will also be joining.

Recently crowned champions of the University Games, Far Eastern University Tamaraws and runnerup Lyceum University are given slots as wildcard entries.

The winning squad will not only go home with the bragging rights but will also be taking home with them funding or scholarship support amounting to P500,000 for the school’s sports programs. (MCB)

Higher goal for collegiate basketball
BIZLINKS By Rey Gamboa
The Freeman
Friday, November 9, 2007

To be called the greatest, one has to beat the best or one of the greatest.* Such a cliché could not be more correct than in sports, particularly collegiate basketball, where there are just too many teams and leagues, making it difficult to name the real king of college hoops.

Hence, the Collegiate Champions League (CCL), now on its fifth year brings us closer to that goal as it once more brings together the cream of the crop among collegiate basketball teams nationwide and provide a fitting climax to the wild and wooly collegiate basketball season.

With the full support extended by Basketball Association of the Philippines-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP), the governing body for basketball in the country, CCL organizes and manages the Collegiate National Championship as part of its contribution towards the promotion and development of collegiate basketball.

The objective is to bring together not just the much hyped teams from Metro Manila-based leagues such as the NCAA and UAAP but also equally talented teams from other leagues in and around Metro-Manila and from basketball hotbeds in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Aiming higher

BAP-SBP officials headed by its chairman, M. V. Pangi-linan, and executive director, Patrick “Pato” Gregorio, expressed their full support to the initiatives of CCL.

Chairman Pangilinan was of the view that collegiate teams should look beyond just winning the championship of their respective leagues but must aim higher, and go forth and be the national collegiate champion.

The CCL, through the Collegiate National Championship, is the organized and competitive avenue of college basketball teams from different leagues, regions and provinces for renewed rivalries.

A more fitting gauge of the team’s strength and skills is the ability to measure up to the challenge of other rivals beyond their borders. That’s what CCL’s Collegiate National Championship is all about. Gather the best, and pick the best among the best.

The tough tournament format makes each game an explosive must-win situation for all teams – no time for loafing around or resting on one’s laurels. The teams will compete in a knock-out format where a single loss will send the loser packing for home.

‘Sweet 16’ action starts Nov 10

Action kicks off on Nov. 10 with each and every game supervised and handled by Commissioner Chino Trinidad and his well-trained technical staff. Trinidad is the current commissioner of the long-running Philippine Basketball League.

The teams invited to form the elite “sweet 16” are De La Salle Green Archers, UE Red Warriors, Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles, UST Growling Tigers, FEU Tamaraws, San Beda Red Lions, Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, Mapua Cardinals, San Sebastian College Stags, STI College Olympians, Manuel L. Quezon University Stallions, Lyceum University Pirates, University of the Visayas Green Lancers, West Negros College Mustangs, Sacred Heart College of Tacloban Stallions and the champion from the Davao collegiate league to represent Mindanao (still being contested).

With such a cast, one can easily make up several interesting scenarios and match-ups that will provide drama and excitement in the Collegiate National Championship games.

There are many sub-plots and questions waiting to be answered, like: Would the Red Warriors bounce back from their bitter setback to the Green Archers? Would the Red Lions with Nigerian Sam Ekwe in tow dominate UAAP champ DLSU and/or vice versa? Would the UST Tigers regain lost pride after being dethroned as UAAP champions? Or would Cebu’s UV Lancers or any other Vis-Min-based team flex their Southern brand of basketball and humble proud teams from the Big City.

Filoil Flying V scholarships

Fil-Oil/Flying V Sports and the Villavicencio group of companies are the main sponsors of major prizes awaiting the champion of champions and three runners-up.

The 2007 Collegiate National Champion, aside from having bragging rights as the ultimate, the best collegiate cage team in the land, will also receive P500,000 from Fil-Oil/Flying V to benefit* the school’s sports/athletic programs.

The second, third and fourth placers would not go empty handed as they will also receive a generous scholarship package from Fil-Oil/Flying V amounting to P200,000, P100,000 and P50,000, respectively.

Smart special awards

For this year’s CCL competition, BAP-SBP Chairman Pangilinan offered additional prizes for outstanding team and individual performances. These “Smart Special Awards” are for: Most Valuable Player (M.V. Pangilinan Cup Awardee), Members of Mythical teams (Team A and Team B), Best Defensive Team, Coach of the Series and Best Performing Referee.

The “Best Performing Referee” is the first of its kind to be awarded, and recognizes the importance of good officiating. Commissioner Chino Trinidad believes that this will enhance further the performance rating system that they have been adopting at PBL.

Friendly rivalries

Collegiate basketball fans are in for a treat as teams now belonging to different “mother leagues” renew old rivalries. There are also other interesting match-ups looming as the annual bringing together of the best collegiate teams from various leagues, provinces and regions start on 10th November at the Ninoy Aquino stadium.

And in recognition of the mission and vision of the CCL, Solar Entertainment thru Basketball TV, is again airing the games for collegiate cage fans to witness and enjoy the enthusiasm and competitive spirit displayed as players play their hearts out for their respective alma mater.

I think we should put an end to the issue on the use of the word "champion" in the Collegiate Champions League.

Isipin niyo...

--Sa PBA may All-Filipino Conference, pero ang dami namang bogus na Pinoy.

--Kahit yung naturingang "Open" Conference ng PBA ay may naka-set na height limit sa imports. Open na may limit?

--Ang NCAA at UAAP, parehong school leagues pero kita naman na tila commercial league ang pagpapatakbo.

--Kahit yung Inter-Barangay sa sarili nating mga distrito ay may mga player sa mga koponan na hindi naman taga-barangay o hindi taga-distrito natin.

Malinaw na sa paggamit ng ilang kataga sa pagpapangalan ng isang torneo, di dapat dibdibin yung pangalang pinagkalinlan.

Ikaw, ano ang tawag sa iyo ng nakakarami?

Pero, ano ang totoo mang pangalan?

Yung labanan na magaganap ang mahalaga!

Sinubaybayan ko ang torneong ito mula sa una nitong edition. Ang napag-alaman kong paliwanag sa paggamit ng salitang "champion" ay ito ----

Malinaw kung bakit imbitado ang kampeon ng bawat school league. Pero bakit kasali ang segunda, tercera at kuarta ng NCAA at UAAP? Dahil di’ maitatanggi ang lakas ng koponan ng mga ligang ito. May ilang edition din na pati ang segunda ng CeSAFI ay imbitado dahil na rin totoong mataas ang kalibre ng mga koponan sa Cebu.

“ Pero “champions league”* daw, eh!”

Inimbita ang mga semifinalist sa NCAA at UAAP dahil, liban sa totoong angat ang dalawang ito sa iba, pinalalagay ang parity sa loob ng bawat liga, na kung saan ang sino man sa apat na semi-finalist ay maaaring maging kampeon sa kanilang sariling mother league.

Kaya sa mga pumupuna sa salitang "champion" dito sa CCL, ito ang hamon --- “Mag-isip naman kayo nang mas makabuluhang usapin!”

---Ano po ang pangalan nila?

-Adonis, po.

--- Natigilan ang nagtanaong at sabay bulong sa sarili, "t@ng-1na, bakit ganyan hitsura mo!"

At kung gagawing isyu ang di paglahok ng ilang koponan --

Ito ang tanong ko--

Kung may binuo kang isang event at nag-imbita ng 16 na katao. May tatlong nagpasabing hindi dadalo.

Ika-cancel mo ba ang sarili mong event, dahil lang* sa tatlong iyan?

Kung di ko pa alam, manonood ka rin o di kaya babasahin ang resulta ng mga laban- sa pahayagan man o internet. ::) ::)

Best college basketball teams collide



Ed Picson
mb.com.ph

In a perfect world, there would only be one college basketball league where all schools could field their teams.


Reality of course is different and hereabouts you have the UAAP, the NCAA, NAASCU, CUSA, CESSAFI, etc ad nauseam. The dictates of distance and accessibility have also warranted the establishment of other leagues.

Fortunately, the Collegiate Champions League was put up on the efforts of long-time basketball personality Joe Lipa. The CCL in turn organized the Collegiate National Championship which invites the top teams of the different basketball leagues in the country to a tournament that aims to determine once and for all which among the many champion schools is the greatest for the year.

The CCL, now on its fifth year, has enjoyed all-out support from various sectors, including the sports-loving public. But to survive, corporate sponsorship is a must and Filoil/Flying V has picked up the gauntlet to put up the scholarship prizes to the winning schools. Smart Communications will also give out special awards.

The Filoil/Flying V Collegiate National Championship will kick off tomorrow, Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Memorial Stadium and will have a grueling 18-day schedule which culminates in the championship on November 28.

The knock-out format leaves no option for losing as a single defeat will knock a team out of the competition. The thing is, for those who keep winning, it gets tougher as they advance since they will be facing equally undefeated squads and as mentioned beforehand, the tournament will last barely three weeks.

Last year, the championship was a classic battle of the two top collegiate leagues of the land- the UAAP with the University of the East Warriors and the NCAA with their champion Red Lions of San Beda.

This year, four teams each from the two leagues will banner the 16 teams competing in the 5th edition of the games. UAAP will field its top 4 teams – champion De La Salle University, University of the East, Ateneo de Manila and University of Sto. Tomas.

The NCAA will be bannered by champion San Beda College, Jose Rizal University, Mapua and San Sebastian College.

Looking to stage upsets are the MLQ Stallions from the CUSA, STI Olympians of the NAASCU, the UV Green Lancers of Cebu (CESSAFI), West Negros Colleges Mustangs of Negros Occidental, the Sacred Heart Stallions of Tacloban City, and the champions of the Davao Collegiate League, which was being contested at press time.

There are two wild card teams from the Unigames – champions FEU Tamaraws and the Lyceum Pirates.

CCL Chairman Rey Gamboa, a retired vice-president of Shell Pilipinas and a former PBA chairman is a tried and tested sportsman who tirelessly thinks up innovative concepts to shore up the Philippine sporting scene. He has also organized Texas Hold "Em poker tournaments and now promises another exciting season of the Collegiate National Championship.

Commissioner for the tournament is the PBL’s Chino Trinidad.

This year’s champions will win a funding/scholarship worth Five Hundred Thousand Pesos while the runner-up gets Two Hundred Thousand, third placer One Hundred Thousand and fourth placer Fifty Thousand.

Of course, the prize plum is to be considered as the best collegiate basketball team of the year.

WNC Mustangs off to Champions Cup tilt
By Henry C. Villalva
Sunstar Bacolod
Thursday, November 08, 2007

NOPSSCEA reigning collegiate champions West Negros College Mustangs are scheduled to leave Saturday, November 10, for Manila to see action in the Fil-Oil/Flying V National Collegiate Champions Cup set to kick off on the same day at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The nine-time NOPSSCEA champions lineup is composed of skipper Vengie Vergara, Alfie Villariza, Jetric Sumido, Vergilio Dapar, Jason Melarin, Winrich Pusoc, Briton Javelona, Rolly Jaca, Bernard Suante, Jeff Jacinto, Rhundy Baydo, Raul Suyod and Robert Lauron.

The team is mentored by Dennis Tumayan with Joebert Pastias as assistant and WNC sports executive Anthony Carlo Agustin as team manager. Also accompanying the team is WNC Sports Office administrator Romulo Estrebillo.

The Mustangs are bracketed in Group D with Ateneo de Manila University, Jose Rizal University, and Lyceum of the Philippines University. They are slated to take on the ADMU Blue Eagles for their first scheduled game in the elimination round.

It will be the first time former Mustang Siverino 'Nonoy' Baclao, now a starter for the Blue Eagles, to be playing against his former varsity squad. Ateneo and WNC finished second and third behind champion FEU during the October 22-28 12th Unigames hosted here by University of St. La Salle.

UAAP champion De La Salle University Green Archers and NCAA titlist San Beda are ranked one and two, respectively in this event now on its fifth year which offers P500,000 in the form of sports scholarships to the champion.

The next three finishers will get P200,000, P100,000, and P50,000.

The Blue Eagles are ranked third while University of the East Warriors are ranked fourth.

The Mustangs are seeing action in this series by virtue of their being NOPSSCEA titlists while the other league champions also in the cast are: CUSA champion Manuel L. Quezon University, NAASCU titlist STI; UCAA champion St. Francis of Assisi Doves; CESSAFI (Cebu) champion University of Visayas Lancers; Tacloban champion Sacred Heart College; and the winner of the ongoing Davao collegiate league which could be either Holy Cross College, Ateneo de Davao University, or University of Mindanao.

Smart has also put up prizes for the Most Valuable Player (the M.V. Pangilinan Cup awardee), members of two Mythical teams, best defensive team, coach of the series, and best performing referee.

PBL commissioner Chino Trinidad has been named tournament commissioner. Aside from the Ninoy Aquino Stadium, games will also be played at the Loyola Gym, San Beda College Gym and at The Arena in San Juan where the quarterfinals, semis and finals will be played.

Unang una, ako ay hanga sa site na ito dahil pawang matatalino lahat ang miyembro. Marami akong natu tutunan. Akoy hindi nagmamarunong pero marami rin akong tanong. Ang taong mapagtanong ay gustong matuto.

Hindi ko direktang tinuligsa ag salitang CHAMPION *sa CCL. Sabi ko ay "rethink" o pag isipan muli kung angkop pa ba. Kung napatunayan ng matatalinong tao na walang mali sa salitang CHAMPION sa CCL, eh di walang problema sa kin.

Sa pagkaka alam ko (kahit mali) ay tinatag ito para malaman ang kampeon sa mga kampeon sa Collegiate Basketball. Napakaganda ng intensyon. Sa edisyong ito, kapag nag kampeon ang Lyceum Pirates, karapat dapat na ba silang kampeon ng mga kampeon? Mas magaling na ba sila sa UE, Ateneo, La Salle, San Beda dahil sila ang nagwagi? Para na kasig nagiging invitational ito. Walang pinag iba sa ibang liga.

Siguro ay napagtanto ng PBA ang mali sa titulong All Filipino Cup kaya pinalitan nila ito ng Philippine Cup. Para safe ika nga. Tama rin ang liga ng barangay ay may sumasaling taga ibang barangay. Nasa tagapamahala na kasi iyon kung maghihigpit sila sa patakaran. Kung talagang "hardcore" sa rules ang taga pangasiwa, walang ganitog mangyayari. Buti na lang pag tinawag na Midget, walang nasasaling malalaki na. Di tulad sa UAAP na dinadaya ang edad makapaglaro lang.

Anyway, hindi ito ang usapin. Para sa akin na "average" ang talino, makabuluhan nang usapin ito. Hindi naman ako nagtanong ng "ano ang tatak ng uniporme ng koponan?" para masabing walang kabuluhan. Maaaring binigyan ko masyado ng malisya ang salitang Champion pero iyon talaga ang aking pananaw, opinyon na maaaring bigyang linaw ng ibang matatalino dito.

Tama rin na ang laban ang mahalaga, hindi ang pangalan ng torneyo. Kahit tawagin itong College League ay pwede na dahil ang labanan ang mahalaga. Kahit tawagin itog Liga ni Pototoy ay ayos lang dahil labanan ang mahalaga. Ngunit bakit naisip ng organizers na tawagin itong Collegiate Champions League, may gusto siguro silang patunayan.

At kapag ako ay tinawag na "gago", sasabihin kong, may pangalan ako. Binigay sa akin ng aking magulang. Kawawa ang taong Adonis ang pangalan ngunit sila ay pangit. Mamaliitin sila ng mga nagpapangap na guwapo. Hindi bale na. Hindi importante ang pangalan.

At salamat at ngayon ay naintindihan ko na kung bakit kahit hindi Champion ay sinasali dito.

Kapayapaan sa lahat.

CEBU CITY, Philippines - Even if they will be playing without some of the more famous stars they have produced so far, the University of the Visayas Green Lancers are hoping that sheer determination will tow them farther in the 5th season of the Collegiate Champions League, which starts this Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Green Lancers will have no Joseph Quiñahan, Niel Rañeses, Mark Ababon, Ronald Bucao, Jayford Rodriguez and Morsie Akad to bank on this time around but head coach Elmer “Boy” Cabahug remains confident of his team's chances this year.

“Our team this year in not that talented when you compare it to our previous teams. But made no mistake about it, this current batch of players that I have could very well compete against the Manila teams,” said Cabahug.

Interestingly, Cabahug said that he like the team’s chances this year compared to last year, saying that he has enough talent in every position.

“Last year, our pointguard position was very shallow. But this year we have Von Lañete, Harlou Villanil and Chris Diputado who are showing good signs of maturity,” Cabahug said.

Cabahug is hoping that his guards could fill the void vacated by Akad.

Although Akad has fully recovered from an injured knee, he is barred from playing in this year’s CCL after failing to suit up for UV in the 2007 Cesafi due to that injury.

Before, the Green Lancers had a solid frontline in Rañeses and Quiñahan but Cabahug said that his squad still had enough ceiling that could stand against their taller opponents.

“I have no problem when it comes to big men. I have a pretty solid frontline now compose of Greg (Slaughter), Mike (Luga) and Rino (Berame),” added Cabahug.

In last year’s CCL, UV could only chalk up one win at the expense of the Adamson University (AdU) Falcons.

The Green Lancers were stopped in the Round-of-Eight when they were eliminated by the Sam Ekwe-led San Beda Red (SBC) Red Lions.

If UV and San Beda cross path anew, Cabahug said his squad is now more prepared following the arrival of Slaughter.

The 6-foot-11, Slaughter is three inches taller than Ekwe although the latter is more athletic and is a demon when it comes to shot-blocking.

“Greg will be a good match to Ekwe because as what I have observed, he plays better against taller opponents,” said Cabahug of his prized Fil-Am recruit

LESSON LEARNED

Cabahug said that UV’s championship finish in the 2007 season of the Cesafi also helped the squad a lot.

“It was a learning experience for us.” Cabahug offered. “The defeats we suffered in the Cesafi helped us a lot. It made the players realize that they are not invincible. It taught them to compete hard every outing and not to be complacent.”

Junjun Lasala, Ritchum Dennison and the high flying rookie Sylvester Tancongco were all in high in spirits as they prepared to take on the rest of the nation in their quest to better their 3rd place finishes in 2004 and 2005.

“Of course naa man jud pressure on us to win pero we’ll do our best to make UV and the rest of Cebu proud,” said Tancongco.

Rino Berame has played in four editions of the CCL and offered some sound advice for his team’s neophytes.

“Dili lang jud sila unta mahadlok sa physical play didto and play together as a team,” explained Berame.

The Green Lancers will leave for Manila on Nov. 15 and will play their first assignment against the Lyceum University Pirates on Nov. 17 at The Arena in San Juan.

I have a feeling that the PCCL this year will not be patronized by that many college basketball fans.

Kasabay kasi ito sa PBL.

I suggest to the organizers to reset the tournament to January of the new year so that there will be more interest by the students to watch.

Totoo, even against a lean weekday/ Thursday crowd of the UAAP, attendance at the CCL pales in comparison. But there has been visible increase during the semis and finals on a year to year basis. If the organizers will persevere, this may actually become a big event after another 5 years.

Not too long ago, there was a classic OK Coral shootout at the Araneta Coliseum. A UAAP championship series between UST and UE. Jarencio was the top gunner for the Goldies and Caidic for the Warriors. From the general admission, dinig mo yung talbog ng bola...

A lot of things had happened to the UAAP in the intervening period.

Ngayon, pag dikitan ang laban, ultimo buzzer hindi mo marinig!

Who knows what will become of this CCL...

As to having this event on January. Well, the idea really was and still is, to hold it in close proximity to the first semester. This event was conceptualized to be a continuation of the college games culminating to hailing a National Champion. Hindi na yata lalabas na "continuation" kung may pagitan kang November/ December.

Eniweys, 5 years old pa lang ang event na ito. We can be sure the organizers are open to changes if it will result to a better tournament.

Ang importante.... "May pinasimulan na."

FEU vs MLQU opens Champions Cup today
Manila Bulletin
Saturday, November 10, 2007

REIGNING UNIVERSITY Games champion Far Eastern University is not taking Manuel L. Quezon University lightly when both teams clash in the opener of the Fil-Oil Flying-V National Collegiate Champions Cup today at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

Fresh from beating the Ateneo Blue Eagles in the University Games final in Bacolod City, the Tamaraws are favored to dispose of the Stallions in their high noon encounter.

But FEU coach Glenn Capacio said they are not going to keep their guards down, citing MLQU’s great basketball tradition.

"I haven’t seen them play, but I know the Stallions are made up of veteran players who can pose big problems," said Capacio.

The Stallions, who won the Colleges and Universities Sports Association (CUSA) title for the sixth time, will be making their debut in the 16-team knockout tournament.

MLQU team owner Victoria Chan said they are happy to play against champion teams and are eager to show their brand of play.

"If we play well tomorrow, we have a big chance of beating the Tamaraws," said Chan who also acts as team manager.

Capacio said the Tamaraws barely had rest since being eliminated by the University of Santo Tomas Tigers in the playoff for the Final 4 berth in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

"We rested for only three games before we resumed training. So my boys are still in peak form," said Capacio.

The Tamaraws, led by Arwind Santos, won this event in 2005, beating University of the East.

"The Champions Cup is no less prestigious than the UAAP. We want to win again," Capacio said.

The winner of today’s match will face either defending champion UE or STI in the quarterfinals.

UAAP champion La Salle and NCAA titlist San Beda have been seeded first and second, respectively while the Eagles and the Warriors take the next two spots.

The winner of the annual event, now on its fifth year, will receive R500,000 in the form of sports scholarships. The next three finishers will get R200,000, R100,000 and R50,000 in that order.

Smart has also put up special prizes for the Most Valuable Player (M.V. Pangilinan Cup awardee), members of two Mythical teams, best defensive team, coach of the series

FEU vs MLQU in 5th Collegiate Champions League opening
Cebu Daily News
Last updated 07:38am (Mla time) 11/10/2007

THE 5TH Collegiate Champions League (CCL) kicks off today with a lone match pitting the Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws and the Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) Stallions at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

Tip off is set at 12 noon but the match will be aired on a slightly delayed basis over Basketball TV starting at 3 p.m.

This year, the rookie-laden FEU of coach Glen Capacio is ranked number five and is one of the teams that could pull off a huge surprise in the tough tournament that features the top collegiate squads around the archipelago.

Leading the charge for the Tamaraws will be Sanny Abaring, Marlon Adolfo, Marnel Baracael, Mark Barroca, JR Cawaling, Riel Cervantes, Benedict Fernandez and Paul Joseph Sanga.

Although they are just seeded number nine, the Stallions are a very dangerous team as they are the back-to-back champions in the Colleges and Universities Spots Association (Cusa).

MLQU ruled the 2007 season of Cusa when they swept the Central Colleges of the Philippines (CCP) in their best-of-three championship series.

The Stallions will heavily rely on Alvin Vitug, who erupted for 46 points in the squad’s title-clinching 101-98 win in Game 2.

This year’s CCL will have the usual 16 teams led by the defending champions University of the East (UE) Red Warriors.

Cebu is represented by Cesafi powerhouse University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers of head coach Elmer “Boy” Cabahug. They will play their first game on Nov. 17 against the Lyceum University Pirates. Correspondent Calvin D. Cordova

Obviously, FEU team is more conditioned to play and the much deeper team. Looks like FEU team is slowly gaining those much needed experience come next season. Mismatch sa size, malalaki ang FEU and walang bigmen ang MLQU to defend the painted area. Bilib din ako dun sa Custodio ng MLQU. Parang Bonbon nung 1st half. ;D

2 p.m.—UST vs Mapua
4 p.m.—San Beda vs Sacred Heart

MANILA, Philippines -- The Far Eastern U Tamaraws rolled past the Manuel L. Quezon Stallions, 91-80, to advance to the Round of 8 at the start of the Collegiate Champions League yesterday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

Reil Cervantes and Marlon Adolfo shot 13 points apiece for the Tamaraws, who were ranked fifth after capturing the Unigames championship in Bacolod last month.

The competition, though, lost a lot of luster when UAAP champion De La Salle and runner-up University of the East recently withdrew from the tournament, which aims to pit the top 16 collegiate teams in the country.

Coach Franz Pumaren said his Archers needed a break after a long season, while the Warriors questioned their surprisingly low seeding.

“We have issued invites to all qualified teams,” said tournament chair Rey Gamboa. “If they don't show up, their opponents will win by default.”

The league seeded the Warriors fourth—behind third-ranked Ateneo—despite a UAAP Finals stint following a perfect 14-0 elimination record.

“I have formally informed Mr. Gamboa of UE’s decision yesterday (Friday) morning but before this he was verbally advised when news came out about the rankings,” said UE executive vice president and team manager Carmelita Mateo.

“We’ve been playing since March; we didn’t commit to join,” said Pumaren of his top-seeded Archers.

The Warriors are scheduled to go up against No. 13 San Sebastian Stags on Wednesday, while the Archers are set to tackle No. 16 University of Mindanao Wildcats on Thursday

MANILA, Philippines -- The Far Eastern University Tamaraws rolled past the Manuel L. Quezon Stallions, 91-80, to advance to the "Round of 8" at the start of the Collegiate Champions League Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

Reil Cervantes and Marlon Adolfo shot 13 points apiece for the Tamaraws, who were ranked fifth after capturing the Unigames championship in Bacolod last month.

The competition, though, hit a major bump when UAAP champion La Salle and runner-up University of the East recently withdrew from the tournament, which aims to pit the top 16 collegiate teams in the country.

The scores:

FEU 91 -- Cervantes 13, Adolfo 13, Baracael 12, Fernandez 11, Ramos 9, Abarring 8, Cawaling 7, Barroca 5, Alisbo 5, Knuttel 4, Sanga 4.

MLQU 80 -- Custodio 18, Lustestica 14, Vitug 11, Patricio 10, Tadlas 9, Manalansan 5, Mendoza 4, Dizon 4, Tamayo 2, Sangalang 2, Parapa 1, Sumayang 0, Crisostomo 0.

FEU wins over MLQU in CCL 2007 opener
by Josef Ramos
Saturday, 10 November 2007

Far Eastern University showed its might last November 10, 2007 to topple CUSA champion Manuel Luis Quezon University, 91-80, and make it to the elite eight of 5th Flying V Collegiate Champions League at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

Despite the threatening three-point attack executed by the Stallions, the Tamaraws relied heavily on their half-court trapping defense to limit the back-to-back Collegiate and Universities Sports Association champion from hitting downtown.

The Stallions, though, still shot 8-of-23 attempts beyond the arc against the 5-of-17 of the Tamaraws, who coached by mentor Glenn Capacio. They will face the winner between STI and University of the East.

“Well in the first place they shot very well from the three-point zone,” said Capacio. “So we decided to lock them up in the second quarter. And we also outran them all-throughout.”

MLQU star Alvin Vitug, who drained 13 triples during the CUSA finals, hit three triples and made two charities for 11 points in the first quarter but couldn’t score in the succeeding period due to FEU’s leech-like defense.

After a close 28-25 lead, FEU scorched MLQU in the second quarter, 30-15, to gain an insurmountable 58-40 halftime edge.

Center Aldrin Ramos, who tallied nine points and grabbed nine rebounds, scored on a put back twice to give FEU a 54-38 lead with 2:15 minutes left before halftime.

MLQU came within 62-54 with 5:16 minutes to go in the third but couldn’t sustain the run and FEU countered a blazing 15-4 burst, capped by the combined 13 points of Marlon Adolfo and Mac Baracael, to regain a huge lead at the start of final quarter, 77-58.

FEU, winner of 2003 and 2005 UAAP titles, did not surrender their double-digit lead the rest of the way in the last quarter.

Rebounding was also a huge factor for the Tamaraws as they out-rebounded the Stallions, 56-36. They gained 22 on second chance points while the Stallions had only 11.

Reil Cervantes and Adolfo scored 13 apiece to lead FEU. While Benedict Fernandez poured in 11 points.

The Tamaraws registered 39-out-of-79 (49%) from the field against the 27-out-of-73 (37%) from the Stallions, paced by Jo Custodio’s 18 points and 10 rebounds.

FEU issued more assists also than MLQU, 25-12.

Individual scores:

FEU (91) – Cervantes 13, Adolfo 13, Baracael 12, Fernandez 11, Ramos 9, Abaring 8, Cawaling 7, Barroca 5, Alisbo 5, Knuttel 4, Sanga 4.

MLQU (80) – Custodio 18, Luestestica 14, Vitug 11, Patricio 10, Tadlas 9, Manalansan 5, Dizon 4, Mendoza 4, Tamayo 2, Sangalang 2, Parapa 1, Sumayang 0, Crisostomo 0.

Quarter Scores: 28-25; 58-40; 77-58; 91-80

Note: In the shady part of the tournament, UE and De La Salle had reportedly withdrew from the CCL tournament. Details on this will be published in a short while with a spot phone and SMS interview with DLSU Head Coach Franz Pumaren.

It's really too bad that a couple of NCAA & UAAP teams have chosen not to participate in the league, but I think what's important is for the CCL to keep moving forward. The other NCAA & UAAP teams still have their followers generating a lot of interests in the league.

In time, if it keeps persevering, the CCL will establish a reputation that most schools would want to compete in.

FEU Rips MLQU In Collegiate National Opener
by Jefferson Quincy Reyes

The 2007 UNIGAMES Champions Far Eastern University Tamaraws are on a busy schedule as they outclassed the Manuel Luis Quezon University Stallions at 91-80 as the Fil-Oil Flying V Collegiate National Championship Cup commences at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in Manila on Saturday, November 10.

The Morayta-based squad dominated the game despite having lapses from time to time.

FEU was still at the brink of familiarizing itself with MLQU as both teams were tight in the first quarter that ended at 28-25 with the Tamaraws on top by three.

The Tamaraws found its offensive groove in the second quarter as they blasted with a 17-0 run to produce a commanding 23-point margin over the Stallions at 56-33 less than three minutes left at the half.

Mark Barroca converted a triple, 9:35 minutes left in the quarter to start the domination of the Morayta-based squad but Jovert Custodio converted a back-to-back put-back to inch closer at 33-29.

The University Athletics Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 70 Rookie of the Year JR Cawaling completed his steal and went for an easy lay-up to give FEU a 38-29 cushion.

Mark Tadlas gave MLQU its last 2-pointer before FEU spurred with a big run at 38-33.

The Tamaraws started its blaze with Reil Cervantes converting a shot from a Mark Baracael assist.

Cawaling made another steal but it was Benedict Fernandez who completed the play, less than 6 minutes left in the quarter.

John Alisbo converted another triple that gave FEU its biggest margin at 56-33.

Francis Sangalang stopped MLQU’s bleeding with 2 points and another basket completion from RJ Patricio to cut the Tamaraws’ lead at 58-37 less than a minute left. Custodio closed the quarter with a 3-point buzzer beater at 58-40.

Tadlas and Ton Ton Lustestica brought light to their team as they made a scoring run that gave MLQU a big cut from a double digit bubble to a single 8-point lead of FEU at 62-54.

Tadlas made a put-back at 6:40 mark and converted his charities fished from Benedict Fernandez and not less than one minute Lustestica converted a three-pointer and then another easy two at the expense of FEU, the lead was trimmed down to 62-54 less than 6 minutes left in the third.

Marlon Adolfo silenced the MLQU crowd with a 5-0 run. He converted an easy basket coming off a Baracael assist and a score from beyond the arc that gave FEU a better breathing space at 67-54.

The rampage continued with FEU tripping to the basket more often. A fast break by Adolfo less than 3 minutes left in the quarter and a jam by Cervantes brought FEU back at a striking distance of 19 points, 77-58 at the end of the third quarter.

RJ Patricio of MLQU assumed the role of a hero for the Stallions despite being down by a big margin. Patricio poured in 8 points in the fourth quarter.

Barroca converted FEU’s last points less than 3 minutes left in regulation at 91-71.

Armand Mendoza scored with a triple at the dying seconds of the game that ended at 91-80.

FEU Coach Glenn Capacio was satisfied with his team’s performance although he admitted that they had a hard time dealing with MLQU since it was their first time to meet the team. He said that they were not able to prepare much and they did not have the opportunity to scout MLQU.

Talking about the lapses, he mentioned that they would be working on their defense since they easily commit fouls that allow the opponents to score.

“Kailangan naming mag-adjust pero maganda naman ang experience na ‘to samin especially we have too many rookies.

There's a world of difference between not committing to join and withdrawing. A withdrawal means that the teams had already agreed to participate and later on withdrew. A team that did not confirm its participation cannot be said to have withdrawn.

BTW, the CCL is merely an invitational league, not a true champion's league. The real collegiate championship should be determined by the SBP through the national intercollegiate. Winning the CCL just means that the eventual champion only won an invitational tournament.

CCL is a misnomer. CIL (Collegiate Invitational League) is more appropriate.

I don't really know if this means much, but the tournament is directly sanctioned by the SBP (if you notice the new league logo, it has the SBP logo in it). Also, the tournament itself now goes by the name Collegiate National Championship, but the media still continues to refer to it by it's old name. Now, "Collegiate Champions League" refers to the league that organizes the Collegiate National Championship. (commercials for this have been showing on Basketball TV.)

Nope, the use of the term "Collegiate National Championship" is merely a marketing ploy. The organizers are doing their best to create the impression that this is the national championship, but many people and schools have seen through that ruse. They even came up with schedules that tried to convey that all schools they originally listed had actually agreed to participate, which is not the case. DLSU never gave a commitment that it would participate, despite all the press releases by the organizers about the seedings.

Sanctioning by the SBP doesn't mean that the CCL (CIL) is now the national championship, because that would mean that the SBP has abdicated its authority. The SBP merely gave its approval for the organizers to stage the invitational, nothing more. It's the same as what the SBP would give a barangay league which asked the SBP for its approval and sanction - the barangay league could also use the SBP logo in its steamers. Subject to SBP approval, the organizers can call the tournament anything they want, but the name won't give it the legitimacy the organizers want.

The composition of the invitees is the biggest question mark. What criteria were used in selecting the schools. Who did the selection? Certainly not the SBP.

The inclusion of non-champions is in itself already a contradiction of the original name of the invitational tournament. How can the semifinalists even be considered as champions?

The CCL (CIL) is nothing more than a poor attempt to make money by riding on the attention the UAAP & NCAA received because of the championship series both leagues had in the last 2 months. Unfortunately for the organizers, the schools aren't giving it that much attention, and I suspect that even the advertisers are also going to stay away, as will the live audiences.

Changing the name of this invitational doesn't give it the legitimacy it tries to project.

The SBP, if it so chooses, will run the real national collegiate championship for both men's and women's teams, as well as for high school teams. That's going to be the real national championship, not the CCL. Until then, no tournament can claim that its champion is the national champion.

Group C members are the SBC Red Lions, Sacred Heart College Stallions, UST Growling Tigers, and Mapua Cardinals while Group D members are ADMU Blue Eagles, San Sebastian College Stags, JRU Bombers and West Negros Colleges Mustangs.

A win by the Wildcats will move them to the Round of 8 against the winner of UV and Lyceum.

Far Eastern University has joined the Round of 8 after beating Manuel L. Quezon University, 91-80.

The Wildcats are flying to Manila on November 13.

I find it strange that Franz would use the excuse of not playing in the CCL because they have "... been playing since March ...", when in fact the UAAP has been over for more than a month now. Besides, Casio, Maierhoffer, Tang & Villanueva seems to have no problems whatsoever playing a couple of times a week in the PBL.

The main purpose of the CCL, is to try to find the Champions among the collegiate champions in the country THRU ACTUAL COMPETITIONS.

What's happening right now, is that the champion of the most prestigious collegiate league is automatically assumed by their followers to be the best in the country 'kuno'.

The CCL says, NO, you have to WALK THE TALK, instead of just TALKING, BOASTING & ASSUMING IT. If you think you are the best in the country, prove it out there on the court. It's as simple as that.

So, who's willing to walk the talk? Or maybe some teams are just content on talking, boasting & assuming, without proving it?

But to some, their "home league title" is what matters the most.

They are entitled to have that opinion. If they are satisfied with that, who are we to criticize?

Pero kung ikay ay isang hardcore basketball fan- and not just an avid follower/ supporter of one team -- what the CCL aims to resolve is very appealling.

Sinusubaybayan nga natin ang summer/ pre season events, na kung saan parang try-out na rin ng iba't ibang koponan. Nang ma-finalize and mga line-up, sinubaybayan natin ang respective leagues.

Hindi maitatanggi na bawa't isa sa atin, at one time or another, we have asked, "Ppaano kaya kung magtagpo ang Team Galing ng ligang ligalig at Team Galing ng ligang sigalot?"

^ True. CCL is a "privilege" for all the college teams to prove themselves against other excellent college teams around the country. It should be seen that way and being invitational in nature is not much of an issue to dwell. Besides why bother effort on explaining nonparticipation if you think the league is a nonsense.

I think the title of this league is debatable but I dont see much problem on it. Bakit sa UAAP and NCAA F4 teams ang kasama and sa iba yong champion lang? There are still a lot of things to polish. Timing, ranking, coordination and etc.

As to the idea that it should be the SBP who should organize a national championship or simply revive the National Inter-Collegiate, I am of the opinion that the SBP should not involve itself in organizing events. Let the SBP draw up programs, assert its powers and influence to synchronize basketball events. But the events itself should not be an SBP affair.

At most,ang pagbibigay lang ng accreditation or sanction ang dapat maging involvement ng SBP as NSA.

Why?

The NSAs are highly poiliticized organizations.

Sa ngayon, maayos pa ang SBP, dahil bago pa. But are we sure that peace will never be disturb?

To insulate events from infightings at NSA, let a national championship event be organized and undertaken by a private entity.

Just as the UAAP, NCAA and CeSAFI went on and flourished through all the years that the BAP was inutile and later was at loggerheads with Basketball Pilipinas; let a private entity, eg foundation/ corporation/ association of schools leagues take care of undertaking a National Championship.

Hindi pa mabenta ang CCL. But the idea is right. Baguhin na lang ang marapat baguhin sa kasalukuyang set-up para mapagbuti.

They are entitled to have that opinion. If they are satisfied with that, who are we to criticize?

If a team prioritizes their league title over the CCL, then I have no problems w/ that. But a team that does so I feel also automatically forfeits its right to make claims about their superiority compared to the other leagues.

It bothers me that some fans would insist on perpetuating their team's supposed standing as far as the whole college basketball scene in the Philippines based on ASSUMPTION & BIAS, instead of actual competitions.

A very good example of that would be the 2007 Bantay Bata All-Star Game between the UAAP & NCAA teams. When one side lost, some fans came forward insisting that the losing side "... didn't take the game seriously...". The implication was that they had the "superior" team, that they would've won had they taken the game seriously, that the other team was a FOOL for not doing the same (shakes head in exasperation).

Well, NOW they have the opportunity to participate in the games "seriously", yet, well, we all know what happened (shakes head again).

Red Lions took the Stallions to School
by Josef Ramos
Monday, 12 November 2007

SIMPLY Effortless.

That’s how reigning back-to-back NCAA champion San Beda College handled its first game in the Flying V Collegiate Champions League – an easier-than expected 105-48 routing of Sacred Heart College of Tacloban last November 12, 2007.

“Total mismatch,” said SBC head coach Frankie Lim when asked how he described San Beda’s first assignment. “It’s like practice for the next round against University of Santo Tomas.”

Armed with a ton of supporters at their backyard, the Red Lions, led by Raymond Maggay and Rogemar Menor, immediately sparked a blazing 22-0 advantage on the way to 42-8 lead at the end of first quarter.

The 2007 NCAA finals MVP Menor and Maggay scored 16 and 13 points, respectively. They racked up 8 and 9 points, respectively, in the first quarter where the Stallions practically surrendered.

San Beda poured in an additional 24 points against the 8 of Sacred Heart College in the 2nd period for an insurmountable 66-16 halftime lead which the Red Lions never relinquished the rest of the way.

The Red Lions scored only 18 points in 3rd but the Stallions only had 12, keeping the crew of Frankie Lim ahead with a very, very huge advantage heading to the 4th period, 84-28.

Rookie Garvo Lanete, with 8 of his 12 points in the stretch, took charge in the last quarter where he finished with four lay ups despite the Stallions’ physical game.

The Red Lions battle the Growling Tigers in the elite eight after winning against the Mapua Cardinals, 91-90, also at the same venue.

Pong Escobal, rested the entire 4th quarter, provided 11 points with 5 assists, while JR Taganas added 10 points and 5 rebounds.

Playmakers Anjo Caram and Borgie Hermida contributed eight points apiece, while Riego Gamalinda and Nigerian center Samuel Ekwe - grabbed 14 rebounds and swatted away two Stallions attempts - combined for 14 points.

San Beda, as expected, also dominated all departments – scoring (41-out-of-83 49%)-21-out-of-74 28%), assists (28-12), rebounds (59-44), steals (13-7) and blocks (5-2).

Enrique Quinto led the Stallions with 18 points and 7 rebounds.

Individual scores:

SAN BEDA 105–Maggay 16, Menor 13, Lanete 12, Escobal 11, Taganas 10, Caram 8, Hermida 8, Ekwe 7, Gamalinda 7, Marcelo 6, Tirona 4, Padilla 3.

SACRED HEART 48–Quinto 18, Opana 10, Tan 6, Gallanza 4, Baje 3, Macatumbas 3, Loipega 2, Fornillos 2, Muldes 0, Abella 0.

Quarters: 42-8, 66-16, 84-28, 105-48

CCL 2007: UST defeats MIT
by Josef Ramos
Monday, 12 November 2007

Mapua virtually won the game with a minute left but Daryl Basa had other plans.

Basa delivered five straight points to bail out the UST Growling Tigers against the Mapua Cardinals, 91-90, to advance to the elite eight of the Flying V 5th Collegiate Champions League last November 12, 2007 at the San Beda College gym.

Basa, a UAAP juniors MVP in 2006 playing for UST, fired a pivotal trey with a minute left to narrow the gap, 88-89 before teammate Francis Allera tied the game at 90-all with 27 seconds to go after splitting his charities.

Marvin Acosta, in the ensuing play, gave Mapua a one-point lead, 90-89, as he converted one of his two free throws with 18 seconds remaining.

But Basa came up from nowhere and hit the game-winning put back with only 3.1 seconds remaining to put the 69th UAAP champion to a knockout quarterfinals match against back-to-back NCAA champs San Beda College Red Lions.

“It’s a great game though. We almost lost it,” said Basa, who finished five points in just five minutes of play. “But I’m glad my only shots went in when it counted.”

After an 85-all deadlock, Sean Co scored on back-to-back lay ups to provide Mapua an 89-85 advantage with 2:06 seconds left before Basa came in to bail out the Growling Tigers.

“Actually, we only practiced twice for this tournament so we’re really tired. But not our fighting spirit,” said UST head coach Pido Jarencio. “Basa is really our total package player for us today.”

UST, playing without MVP Jervy Cruz, took a 26-14 first quarter lead but a counter 24-17 attack by Mapua in the next quarter reduced their lead, 43-38, by halftime.

Cruz, recording double-double’s in last season’s UAAP, is currently playing with the RP-Harbour Team that will compete in the 24th Southeast Asian Games in December in Thailand .

Veteran Sean Co, paced the Cardinals with 22 points – all in the 2nd half, exploded for 15 points in the third quarter. Jonathan Banal added 10 of his 15 points as Mapua seized the edge at the end of third quarter, 70-59. But UST unleashed a searing 32-20 burst in fourth quarter to keep the victory.

Forward Francis Allera led UST with 25 points on a 5-of-8 shooting from the three-point area and grabbed eight rebounds. While Dylan Ababou finished with 23 points and nine rebounds.

Playmaker Japs Cuan added 12 points, hauled down 7 rebounds and issued 13 assists, while Mark Canlas also made 12 points.

UST gained 26 points from second chance points – including Basa’s game-winning put back – and forced Mapua to 24 points off turnovers.

NCAA MVP Kelvin Dela Peña had 19 points, 7 rebounds and 8 assists for the Cardinals.

Individual scores:

UST 91–Allera 25, Ababou 23, Cuan 12, Canlas 12, Mirza 8, Basa 5, Gile 4, Dizon 2, Taylor 0, Cortez 0, Badua 0.

Mapua 90–Co 22, Dela Peña 19, Banal 15, Pascual 10, Guillermo 6, Cornejo 5, Acosta 4, Del Rosario 3, Palomique 3, Sumalinog 3, Mazo 0.

Quarter scores: 26-14, 43-38, 59-70, 91-90.

Stallions devoured in Lions den
By Nelson Beltran
The Philippine Star
Tuesday, November 13, 2007

NCAA champion San Beda proved too classy for visiting Eastern Visayas champion Sacred Heart yesterday, scoring a lopsided 105-48 victory in their Mendiola home court in the 2007 Champions Cup.

Playing in the same venue earlier, Santo Tomas banked on Darryl Basa’s five-point effort at crunch time to overcome Mapua, 91-90, in a fierce contest.

With their contrasting victories, the Red Lions and the Tigers arranged a quarterfinals showdown in the annual event featuring the cream of varsity teams in the country.

NCAA semifinalist Jose Rizal and Bacolod titlist West Negros College clash in a lone match at 12 noon today over at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Lions hardly flexed their muscles against the highly overmatched Sacred Heart Stallions, enjoying a 42-8 lead in the first quarter, a 66-16 bubble at halftime and an 84-28 spread going into the final canto.

Raymund Maggay had a double-double game with 18 points and 12 rebounds with Ogie Menor, Garvo Lanete, Pong Escobal and Jay-R Taganas each adding at least 10 points for San Beda. Enrique Quinto led Sacred Heart with 18 points.

UST and Mapua figured in a duel of spurts with the Tigers having the last surge, bailed out by Basa in the closing seconds.

Tapped just in the final 1:15, Basa made five points, including the deciding basket on a follow-up shot with 3.1 left in the clock.

The Tigers, fourth placers in the recent UAAP tourney, got off to a roaring start, taking a 12-point, 26-14, advantage in the first quarter but fell behind by 15, 59-74, in the outset of the final quarter.

They were still down by four before Basa knocked in a triple coming off the bench then Francis Allera sank a charity to tie the count at 89-all with 47 ticks left.

Macky Acosta drew a foul from Allera and also scored a charity as the Cardinals — losing NCAA semifinalists – held the lead for the last time at 90-89.

Khazim Misa missed a triple in the ensuing play but Basa came to UST’s rescue, pulling down the offensive rebound and scoring on a putback to make it 91-90.

Kelvin Banal, crowded by a UST defense, missed the target on a desperation heave at the buzzer.

National Collegiate Champions League
UST advances after close win
By waylon galvez
Manila Bulletin
Tuesday, November 13, 2007

DARRYL BASA played only five minutes, but he came through with two heroic plays for University of Santo Tomas.

With his team facing another early exit, Basa came off the bench to score five of his team’s last six points as the Tigers eliminated the Mapua Cardinals with a nail-biting 9190 win in the Fil-Oil/Flying-V National Collegiate Champions League (CCL) yesterday as the SBC Gym.

Back-to-back NCAA champion San Beda College hammered a convincing 105-48 win over Tacloban’s Sacred Heart University to advance in the Round of 8 in the other game.

San Beda will next face UST in the quarterfinals round on Monday at The Arena in San Juan.

Basa, a former Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the UST Tiger Cubs, came in the late stage of the game and quickly made a big play by nailing a three-pointer that closed the gap at 88-89 with 1:03 left.

In the next play, Francis Allera, fouled by Sean Co, split his free throws that tied the count at 89-all with 47.5 seconds to play.

Mapua, a semifinalist in the NCAA, retook the lead when forward Macky Acosta made one of two foul shots to make it 90-89, 27.2 seconds remaining.

Then Basa made the game’s winning play when he scored on a put back off a missed trey by Khazim Mirza that gave UST the lead, 91-90, with 3.1 seconds left.

"Surprise pick s’ya (Basa) in the endgame, pero alam ko kaya n’ya mag-contribute shooter kasi," said UST mentor Pido Jarencio.

"Importante talaga ‘yung first game or first round sa amin even sa UAAP. Dito sa tournament na ‘to second year pa lang namin kaya gusto namin talaga umabante sa next round," added Jarencio.

The Cardinals called for timeout and designed a play for rookie point guard Jonathan Banal. However, Banal was forced to take a running jumper that hit the front rim as time expired.

Last year, the Tigers, then the UAAP champion, were eliminated in the first round by the Heavy Bombers of Jose Rizal University.

Nitorreda: Wildcats not afraid of Archers
Sunstar Davao
Tuesday, November 13, 2007

THE University of Mindanao (UM) Wildcats will earn an easy ticket to the last eight if the De La Salle University (DLSU) Green Archers withdraws in the 2007 collegiate Champion's League.

The Wildcats-Green Archers match-up is set on Thursday at the San Juan Arena.

"I've read from the papers Sunday that DLSU is withdrawing from the competition. When that happens, we will advance to the next round which is the last eight," Wildcats coach Atty. Manny Nitorreda told Sun.Star Davao.

The Wildcats earned the right to represent Davao after beating the Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Blue Knights, 77-57, recently.

"La Salle is a formidable team. But we're not afraid. We are prepared for them. We practiced last weekend immediately after our game with Ateneo," Nitorreda said.

"The pressure is on them (DLSU) because they are expected to win. We have nothing to lose," he added.

Roderick Conda and Augusto "Tata" Banzali will assist Nitorreda in coaching the Wildcats who are also joined together with the University of Visayas Green Lancers and Lyceum University Pirates in Group A.

The University of the East (UE) Red Warriors, STI Olympians, FEU Tamaraws and MLQU Stallions are in Group B while Group C is composed of the St. Benilde College Red Lions, Sacred Heart College Stallions, UST Growling Tigers and Mapua Cardinals.

Playing in Group D are the ADMU Blue Eagles, San Sebastian College Stags, JRU Bombers and West Negros Colleges Mustangs. (MLSA)

That 1 point victory by UST to Mapua is an eye-opener. If the trend of close games between UAAP & NCAA teams continue, it should show that there really isn't a huge gap between both leagues as some expect.

It's nice to see that UST is showing a different attitude compared to last year, they seem to mean business this season. From the get go of the game against Mapua until scrapping to the win they could be this year's dark horse. Mapua did a good job too in regaining the lead in the 4th, kudos to both teams for a great game!

Just shows that some teams do give it all no matter what league the are playing in... di lang umiikot ang basketball world sa UAAP and NCAA...

Regarding the gap between NCAA and UAAP, I agree that there is little to no gap at all... Both teams finished 4th in their leagues and the game was decided by a single point in the final seconds.

Question: Is Jervey Cruz playing in the next game against San Beda?

Champs League: Best of collegiate caging
SPORTS FOR ALL By Philip Ella Juico
Tuesday, November 13, 2007
Philstar.com


After one of the most hotly contested University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) basketball seasons in memory that saw the De La Salle Green Archers sweep the favored University of the East Red Warriors for the coveted basketball title, the first championship encounter in 54 years between the San Beda College (SBC) Red Lions and the Letran Knights in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and various regional championships, now comes the Collegiate Champions League (CCL).

The CCL is an attempt of basketball aficionados and sportsmen led by former Shell executive, entrepreneur and STAR business columnist Rey Gamboa to bring together not just the much-hyped teams from Metro Manila-based basketball leagues such as the NCAA and the UAAP but also equally talented teams from other leagues in and around Metro Manila and from basketball hotbeds in the Visayas and Mindanao.

CCLs format calls for the top 16 collegiate teams in the Philippines participating in a knockout competition to determine the winner of the Fil-Oil Flying V National Collegiate Champion Cup. The 16 are ranked based on inputs from various sectors including sports media and then divided into four groups.

Teams come from, among others, the UAAP, NCAA, the Colleges and Universities Sports Association (CUSA), Visayas and Mindanao collegiate league champions and two wild card entries, the Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws which won the 2007 University Games (Unigames) and Unigames third placer Lyceum University Pirates.

The teams competing are DLSU which is in Group A and ranked one. With the Archers are the following and their rank: University of Mindanao (16); and University of Visayas (8); and Lyceum University (9).

Group B is comprised of UE (4); STI Olympians (13); FEU (5) and Manuel L. Quezon University or MLQU (12). Group C consists of SBC (2); Sacred Heart College (15); University of Sto. Tomas (7) and Mapua (10). Group D is headed by Ateneo (3) and followed by Jose Rizal University (JRU); West Negros Colleges (11) and San Sebastian College (14). A notable absentee is NCAA runner-up Letran.

(La Salle and UE have decided to withdraw from the tournament but organizers are hoping they would change their mind. Sports ed)

The selection process of CCL basically follows the procedure employed by the US NCAA for the men’s division I basketball championship. The selection committee of the US NCAA determines which 65 teams will join the tournament known as “March Madness” and the team rankings. Of these teams, 30 have what is called automatic bids by virtue of winning their respective conference tournaments.

The 34 other teams, called at-large squads, rely on the selection committee to earn a spot in the tournament. These at-large teams come from college basketball’s major conferences like the Big East, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac 10.

Gamboa, who is CCL chairman, says that “to be called the greatest, one has to beat the best or one of the greatest. Such a cliché could not be more correct than in sports, particularly collegiate basketball where there are just too many teams and leagues, making it difficult to name the real king of college hoops.” Thus was born the CCL five years ago.

With the support of the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) – Samahan ng Basketbolista ng Pilipinas (SBP), CCL organizes and manages the collegiate national championship as part of its contribution to the promotion and development of collegiate basketball.

Gamboa adds that the collegiate teams should look beyond just winning the championship of their respective leagues. Their aim, Gamboa insists, must be higher – that of being the national collegiate champion. A more fitting gauge of the team’s strength and skills is its ability to measure up to the challenge of other rivals beyond their borders. That’s what CCL’s collegiate national championship is all about – gather the best, and pick the best among the best, according to Gamboa.

CCL takes pride in the fact that the tough tournament makes each game an explosive must-win situation for all teams, no time for loafing around or resting on one’s laurels. The teams compete in a knock-out format where a single loss eliminates the loser. Last year’s champion was UE followed by San Beda, JRU and Mapua.

The champion of the league will have the distinction of being the best collegiate basketball team for the current season. The champion school will receive support from Fil-Oil Flying V for its scholarship/sports program amounting to P800,000. The first, second, third and fourth placers will receive P500,000; P200,000; P100,000 and P50,000 respectively. SMART will provide special awards, the foremost of which is the Most Valuable Player who will receive the M.V. Pangilinan award.

it seems the chances of the provincials teams winning the championship in this league are slim. most of the good provincial players are already playing for the various teams in the ncaa and uaap. the provincial teams' participation in this league is just for the experience and exposure to the ncaa and uaap player scouters. for sure the most talented ones were already recruited while still in highschool and will never suit up for any provincial team..

Media press releases keep claiming that Lyceum was the third place team in the recently staged Unigames.. This is not true. West Negros College beat Angeles University Foundation for third place. How did Lyceum qualify for this tournament?
