View Full Version : Collegiate Champions League

10-11-2007, 09:26 AM
One of the most gratifying news in winning the NAASCU championship is representing the NAASCU in the forthcoming Collegiate Champions League. In a letter sent to STI through its President Dr. Jay G. Adalem, it said that the Olympians will represent NAASCU come the opening of the CCL on November 10., 2007. The Champion team will go home with a prize of 500k in scholarship funding and athletic equipments.

I just have to clarify but i believe the last two NAASCU representatives, AMACU & UM, lost in the first round. So when the seedings come out we hope that we get a good draw and hopefully make the NAASCU proud by making it to the second round at the very least.

Good luck to the Olympians. we will just post any news about the CCL and the Olympians on this page.

Mr. Mighty Lion
STI and San Beda had a tune up game this morning.
Your Red Lions ate the heart of my players. Grabe raw yung Menor and your new big man.
Tinambakan kami..did not bother to ask for the score.
The only highlight was that we started 8-0 and then Frankie Lim called a timeout.

Well, it was also okay na rin since the team had almost two months rest.
Sabi ni coachnapagod ang team namin when they pressured the ball handlers..just
shows na malayo pa sa kondisyon..hopefully by wednesday next week game ready na ang team!
Hope to meet you sa wednesday...ako yung gwapong team manager ng STI na Aga Muhlach lookalike

Olympians shock Tams; Eagles defuse Bombers

2 p.m. -- UV vs STI
4 p.m. -- UST vs Ateneo

MANILA, Philippines -- One was pretty much expected, the other absolutely a shocker.

STI College and Ateneo de Manila University -- schools seldom mentioned in the same sentence especially with regard to basketball -- fashioned out contrasting triumphs Wednesday to grab the last two semifinal berths in the Fil-Oil Flying V National Collegiate Champions League at The Arena in San Juan City.
The STI Olympians, the reigning National Athletics Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities champions, downed the more famous Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 77-72, to take their place among the best collegiate teams in the land.

Later in the day, UAAP heavyweight Ateneo slammed NCAA’s Jose Rizal University, 81-71, behind the torrid outside shooting of stalwarts Chris Tiu and Nonoy Baclao.

STI advanced against University of Visayas, while Ateneo will take on University of Santo Tomas on Monday in no-tomorrow semifinal matches.

Tiu, on loan to the national team preparing for the Southeast Asian Games, fired 16 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter to help the Eagles seal the victory.

That visibly pleased coach Norman Black, who pounded on deliberate and physical brand of basketball against the NCAA’s tough guys.

“It’s nice to see Chris making those big shots,” said Black.

Mark Balneg scored five points in the homestretch, including a three-pointer that proved to be the telling blow for the Olympians.

The scores:

First Game

STI 77—Mabayo 12, Balneg 12, Flor 11, Micutuan 10, Cabangon 8, Porto 7, Tiongco 6, Mendoza 5, Juan 4, Tolentino 2.
FEU 72—Baracael 15, Barroca 10, Ramos 10, Adolfo 10, Alisbo 7, Fernandez 7, Cawaling 7, Cervantez 5, Abarring 1, Cabagnot 0, Knuttel 0.
Quarters: 20-14, 35-35, 51-51, 77-72.

Second Game

ATENEO 81—Arao 18, Tiu 16, Barrascoso 12, Baclao 11, Baldos 7, Long 6, Reyes 4, Escueta 3, Al-Hussaini 2, Salamat 2, Sumalinog 0, Austria 0.
JRU 71—Wilson 26, Pradas 13, Sena 10, Nocom 10, Bulangis 6, Se 4, Hayes 2, Lituania 0, Kabigting 0, Cagoco 0.
Quarters: 20-17, 37-34, 57-54, 81-71

^ Sir Mhel meron info regarding the profile of STI players na kasali sa CCL? Im particularly curios about the height of STI frontcourt players.

11-22-2007, 01:36 PM
With regards to the height 2 lang malaki, almost 6'5 si Howard Flor and Darryl Mendoza.
There are a lot of forwards and guards around 6'0-6'2 while the 4 point guards are
no taller than 5'7. for more information about the Olympians just click this site


thanks for looking us up.

i favor sti to win this pm. I was impressed by their team's play. Full-court pressing all game long tired out the Tams. They all played like veterans. Kahit maliit iyong iba, mukhang sanay naman sa inter-barangay. Good luck!

11-26-2007, 02:26 PM
I am rooting for STI in this game against the UV Lancers. Go Olympians!

The best way to end the tournament is to live to fight another day

STI College had its eye on the consolation prize.

The STI College Olympians used their never-say-die attitude to prevail against UST Growling Tigers, 87-81, in overtime and settle for third place last November 28, 2007 at The Arena in San Juan City.

The STI Olympians, in a grueling battle in regulation, displayed their impeccable three-point shooting skills in the extra-five minute mark and outscored the Growling Tigers, 14-8, to seal the victory.

"It's our three-point shooting that bailed us out of this game," said STI College mentor Vic Ycasiano, referring to the Olympians' 13 triples – including four in overtime. "It's also the desire of the players.

Former Letran guard Mark Balneg was on fire and exploded for 5-of-9 shooting from the three-point area, hitting 3-of-7 shots from midrange and one free throw for a total of 22 points along with 5 rebounds and 3 steals.

"Third place is alright," said Balneg, who made 9 points in the last quarter, including two important baskets that kept the game close, 70-73, with a minute left in the fourth period. "At least, we proved to everyone that we could also play here."

Haddy Porto, with only six points, delivered the crucial basket in the game – a three-pointer in the final seconds in regulation that pushed the game into overtime. UST was ahead in the first two quarters (18-16 and 32-31) but couldn't take off as planned.

Dexter Micutuan had 13 points, while James Tolentino and second mythical team selection Ramon Mabayo contributed 10 points each.

Jervy Cruz and Dylan Ababou paced UST with 21 and 20 points, respectively.

The 28 turnovers of UST cost them the game. STI College also gained 28 points from UST's lapses. The Olympians committed only 18 turnovers and the Growling Tigers only had 9 turnover points.

STI College got more assists (18-15), steals(12-8) and blocks (5-4) against UST.

Individual scores:

STI 87 — Balneg 22, Micutuan 13, Tolentino 10, Mabayo 10, Mendoza 9, Porto 6, Macabasco 5, Cabangon 5, Flor 4, Tiongco 3, Reyes 0, Dimas 0, Bartolome 0.

UST 81 — Cruz 21, Ababou 20, Mirza 11, Taylor 10, Canlas 6, Cuan 6, Allera 5, Cortez 2, Badua 0, Gile 0.

Quarter scores: 16-18, 31-32, 50-49, 73-73 (reg), 87-81 (OT)
