Manny V. Pangilinan, Basketball Association of the Philippines-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP) president and telecommunications magnate, is the guest of honor in the simple opening rites.

THE Asian* College of Science and Technology Lightnings put away the returning Rizal Technological University Blue Thunder, 77-70, yesterday at the start of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the Ateneo Blue Eagle gym.

But the Blue Thunder quickly bounced back through the efforts of MJ Magbanua and Jaypee Alas, who led with 23 points as RTU caught up with Acsat at 23-25.

The Blue Thunder then overtook the Lightnings on Alas’ triple and drive before the end of the first half, 31-29.

11/25/2007

The Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings and the Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners turned back experienced foes in the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the Rizal Technological University gym.

The Lightnings got the spark they needed to pull away at the start of the last period from Chris Bularon and came away with a 74-62 stopping of the La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots.

Their second straight win enabled the Lightnings to share the early lead with the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves, who earlier downed the Olivarez College Sea Lions, 67-60.

Leomer Losentes made 18 points for the Doves, while Michael Rabor and Rex Leynes contributed 14 and 11, respectively.

Jerry Lumungsod unloaded 15 points, while Jordan Canico had 13 points for the Mariners as they weathered a late rally by the National College of Business and Arts Wildcats, 61-58.

Canico’s trey capped the Mariners’ 9-1 blast at the start of the third period, allowing them to overcome a 35-36 half-time deficit.

The Wildcats, who slipped to their second straight setback, almost forced an overtime, but a three-point attempt by Jun Sibal at the buzzer rimmed out.

Eric Suguitan led the Lightnings with 19 points, while Chris Bularon and Rey Burgos fired 14 and 13 points, respectively.

The Lightnings will try to remain in front when they meet the defending champion Arellano University Chiefs at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday at the Emilio Aguinaldo College Sports Center.

After the Patriots stayed close for the last time at 50-55, Bularon unleashed a trey and touched off a big scoring run as the Lightnings took a commanding 69-59 advantage.

NCRAA: Sea Horses silence Blue Thunders, 96-91
11/26/2007 | 06:12 PM

The PATTS School of Aeronautics Sea Horses used the free throw line in the dying seconds to outlast the Rizal Technological University (RTU) Blue Thunders, 96-91, in the 15th SMART-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament at the RTU Gym.

Don de los Santos and JV Ferreria sank the four, game-winning free throws in the dying seconds to carry the Sea Horses to their second straight victory, according to a league statement issued on Monday.

This enabled the Sea Horses to join the Asian College of Science and Technology (ACSAT) Lightnings and the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves in the lead.

De los Santos put the Sea Lions out of trouble with 20.9 seconds left when he converted two charities which handed them a 94-91 advantage.

The Blue Thunders, who dropped to their second straight setback, tried to force an overtime. But Julio Magbanua bungled a hurried triple in the return play, turning the ball over to the Sea Horses.

Ferreria then kept the Sea Horses out of danger when he scored two more charities with 6.4 seconds left in the game.

"Come-from-behind na naman ang panalo namin," Sea Horses coach Mel Alas said. "The boys wanted to win maski na may homecourt advantage ang kalaban."

RK Cui showed the way for the Sea Horses with 23 points while Richard Cruz hit 18.

The Sea Horses will go for their third straight triumph when they play the Doves in their 11:30 a.m. showdown this Saturday at the La Salle-Dasmariñas Gym.

The Blue Thunders, who led by as much as 10 points in the third period, lost the upper hand after Cui fired a triple to tie the match at 88-all and Rodney Santos drove in and gave the Sea Horses a 90-88 edge. - GMANews.TV

NCRAA: Lightnings strike down Chiefs in OT, 85-79
11/27/2007 | 05:06 PM

The Asian College of Science and Technology (ACSAT) Lightnings banked on Eric Suguitan to defeat the Arellano University Chiefs, 85-79, in overtime Tuesday in the 15th SMART-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament at the Emilio Aguinaldo College Sports Complex.

The 6-foot-7 Suguitan, a league statement said, scored after a miss by Harvey Igtos with 2:02 to go, allowing the Lightnings to gain enough momentum to post their third straight triumph.

The win moved the Lightnings ahead of the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves and PATTS School of Aeronautics Sea Horses, who hold 2-0 cards.

Suguitan's basket handed the Lightnings an 83-79 advantage, and slowed down the Chiefs' offensive in the ensuing plays.

Chris Bularon led the Lightnings with 24 points while Rey Burgos chipped in 13.

The Chiefs are the NCRAA defending champions.

"Breaks ang nagpanalo sa amin," Lightnings coach Ricky Alcantar said. "Sinuwerte lang at pumutok kami sa overtime."

The contest was later put under protest after it was learned that Harvey Igtos donned a wrong uniform.

The Lightnings were enjoying a 71-62 advantage in the last two minutes when the Chiefs came charging back to force overtime, 73-all.

Gio Ciriacruz showed the way with 22 points, including an outside shot, which coach Leo Isaac questioned when it was not counted as a triple.

Ciriacruz's jumper touched off an 11-2 spurt, allowing the Chiefs to send the match into an extra five minutes.

In the earlier game, Marlon Vizcarra and Jeff Pria topscored for 17 points as they carried the Olivarez College Sea Lions to a 72-65 beating of the National College of Business and Arts Wildcats.

The contest was later put under protest after it was learned that Harvey Igtos donned a wrong set of uniform.



Igtos was wearing the team's uniform from last year wherein there was a patch logo of then Lightnings apparel supplier 'Champion'. This year's uniform does not have that logo. The said logo is around 3 inches wide and 1 inch in height. Also, the game took almost 3 hours to finish because of the controversial call made by the referees regarding the supposed 3-point shot of Nat Estilo.

This led to a heated discussion between Chiefs coach Leo Isaac, NCRAA board members Ted Talens, Tisha Abundo, Nomar Isla, table officials and referees. This happened after the regulation period wherein the score was tied. Coach Isaac is demanding that the table officials award Arellano the extra point for the controversial Estilo shot and eventually declare them the winner. The game was furthered delayed when the EAC sports complex shook because of the earthquake.

Yes, it is true dat harvey igtos wore the jersey from last year but the only difference between last years uniform and this years uniform is that patch from champion. But other than that... they look exactly the same... the numbers are the same... the colors and the design are the same.

I would like to think that jerseys have nothing to do with winning games... So i hope that the board would not forfit that game due to a little patch on a jersey.

The lightnings won the game fair and square.

Go lightnings!!!

Admittedly, ACSAT might have to forfeit their win against Arellano due to the Igtos uniform issue. However, if I was Arellano, I would rather have a hard earned win than a victory handed on a silver platter due to a technicality such as this. But that is just me.

Also, what is happening to EAC? 2 straight losses to open the season against teams they normally defeat. EAC hasn't been the same since they figured in a brawl in the latter part of the 1st round in the recently concluded UCAA season.

11-28-2007, 09:44 PM
I think EAC has lost some key players due to eligibility but we dont know and I was surprised to see that they even lost to us yesterday despite an expected weaker squad than the UCAA team we had.

As for the uniform issue, why forfeit because of a petty reason? Sayang, sure it would reverse an outcome but it seems not right when the team obviously won the contest.

11-29-2007, 12:43 AM
I felt that the return of Alain Musni would more than offset the loss of Bong Melocoton in the Generals lineup. The Jaguars really prepared for their game against EAC. And I don't think the loss of Lenon Lasin would have weakened the Patriots specially with the addition of the versatile Rico Rivera. I'm sure Coach Isla's team will definitely bounce back from these two losses.

Adrian Celada led with 17 points for the Chiefs, who bounced back from a 79-85 upset loss to the Lightnings last Tuesday. The Lightnings dropped out of the lead, and now shares the same 2-1 slate with the Chiefs

The St. Francis of Assisi College Doves continued to fly above the rest of the field in the 15th SMART-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament following a 72-66 decision over defending champion Arellano University Chiefs at the Emilio Aguinaldo College Sports Complex Thursday.

Raymund Ilagan, Leomer Losentes, and Michael Rabor combined their efforts in the Doves' last-quarter assault, propelling the Gabby Velasco-coached Doves to their fifth straight win, the league said in a statement.

The Chiefs kept matters close after Jerome Agustin fired a jumper at the end of the third quarter to tie the count at 47-all. They then held the Doves scoreless for some two minutes before penetrations from Angel Celada and Ciriacruz pushed the Chiefs in front, 51-47.

Losentes tallied 11 points, with his second of two triples in the final period enabling the Doves to push themselves further ahead by seven, 70-63. Rabor finished with nine points, including a putback off Ilagan's miss with still 46 ticks to go, for the final count.

Ilagan showed the way with 16 points, including two charities with 2:06 left to extend the Doves' lead, 67-63.

This touched off a 10-0 windup by the Doves, who handed the Chiefs their second setback in five matches. The Chiefs dropped to fifth, with a 3-2 mark, the same record of the La Salle-Dasmarinas Patriots.

Ilagan's freebies came right after Gio Ciriacruz drove in to hand the Chiefs their last taste of the lead, 63-62.

Leomer Losentes, Raymund Ilagan and Michael Rabor contributed double-digit performances as they led the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves to a 74-66 triumph over La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots in the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament at the Arellano University gym.

Losentes powered the Doves with 16 points to help the Gabby Velasco-coached dribblers soar to their seventh straight triumph, the league said Sunday.

Ilagan and Rabor chipped in 14 and 13 points, respectively, as both came up with big baskets and tight defense that limited the Patriots to only eight points in the second half.

The Doves moved four wins closer of completing a rare 11-game sweep of their elimination-round assignment.

The defending champion Arellano University Chiefs turned to their defense in the dying seconds to edge Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners, 74-73.

After Mariner hotshot Jordan Canico unloaded a trey that put the Mariners to within a point, the Chiefs tried their best to keep possession of the ball in the remaining time, enabling Arellano U to grab a share of the fourth spot with the Mariners with a 4-2 slate.

Angelo Celada led the Chiefs with 19 points while Gio Ciriacruz and Jerome Agustin had 12 apiece.

The Doves will seek to continue their winning streak when they meet the red-hot Philippine School of Business Administration Jaguars at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Emilio Aguinaldo College Sports Complex.

The Jaguars are two games behind the Doves at 5-1 and are in contention for the finals after a 10-year title drought.

The Asian College of Science and Technology (ACSAT) Lightnings banked on a fiery first quarter explosion to defeat the Philippine Merchant Marine School (PMMS) Mariners, 97-91, on Monday at the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament at the Emilio Aguinaldo College Sports Center.

The Lightnings shackled the Mariners to just five points in the first 10 minutes, and never looked back as they went on to post their fifth triumph in eight matches, the league said.

The Ricky Alcantara-coached Lightnings moved up to third position, while the Mariners fell behind with a 4-3 win-loss card.

The Mariners now share the same slate with the La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots, who won by default over the City Colleges of Manila.

Nikko Pupos led the Lightnings to victory with a score of 29 points and Harvey Igtos hit 22 points.

Igtos tallied nine points in the first quarter and Pupos put in eight as they made a big 31-5 spurt which decided matters in the Lightnings' favor.

Pupos had eight points in the second period, including two of three triples which enabled the Lightnings to post a 46-29 lead at halftime.

The Mariners tried to charge back into the lead off baskets coming from Jay Aranzaso, who single-handedly cut down the Lightnings' 54-40 spread to just nine, 67-58, at the end of the third quarter.

But two treys from Igtos in the final 10 minutes kept the Lightnings

Defending champion Arellano University and PATTS School of Aeronautics continue their quest for seats in the Final Four when the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament resumes today at the Arellano Legarda gym.

The Chiefs battle the Olivarez College Sea Lions at 11:30 a.m. and will try to catch up with the Philippine School of Business Administration Jaguars. The champs carry a 4-2 win-loss record in fourth position after they pulled off a 74-73 triumph over the Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners before the holiday break of the tournament also backed by Petron, Mikasa and Molten Balls.

Defending champion Arellano University and La Salle-Dasmariñas opened the New Year on a high note at the resumption of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the Arellano Legarda gym.

Gio Ciriacruz asserted himself as the Chiefs walloped the Olivarez College Sea Lions, 71-37, and moved in contention for a Final Four semifinals seat.

Rico Rivera chipped a game-high 40 points as the La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots turned back the PATTS School of Aeronautics Sea Horses, 83-80, in the tournament also backed by Petron, Molten and Mikasa.

Ciriacruz poured in 12 of his 16-point tally in the third quarter as he single-handedly widened an Arellano U four-point halftime advantage to 19 at the end of the third quarter, 49-30. Ed Rivera, Nathaniel Estilo and Leonard Anquillo backed up Ciriacruz with eight points apiece.

The Chiefs improved to 5-3 as they now share third spot with the Patriots, Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, and the Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings

Rivera’s four free throws and a putback in the last 2:28 carried the Patriots to their fifth win in eight games. He made his big moves right after the Patriots forced a 77-all deadlock.

The win allowed the Patriots to overtake the Sea Horses (4-3).

“May pag-asa pa. Malaking bagay itong panalo namin,” Patriots coach Ephraim Serrano said.

Ciriacruz poured in 12 of his 16-point tally in the third quarter as he single-handedly widened the Chiefs' four-point halftime advantage to 19 at the end of the third quarter, 49-30.

Backingi up Ciriacruz were Ed Rivera, Nathaniel Estilo, and Leonard Anquillo with eight points apiece.

The Chiefs improved their win-loss card to 5-3 as they now share third spot with the Patriots, the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, and the Asian College of Science and Technology (ACSAT) Lightnings

Patriots vs Sea Horses

Rico Rivera chipped a game-high 40 points as the La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots turned back the PATTS School of Aeronautics Sea Horses, 83-80.

Rivera's four free throws and a putback in the last 2:28 carried the Patriots to their fifth win in eight games.

He made his big moves right after the Patriots forced a 77-all deadlock.

The win allowed the Patriots to overtake the Sea Horses (4-3).

"May pag-asa pa. Malaking bagay itong panalo namin," said Patriots coach Ephraim Serrano.

Leo Pelayo and Rudy Onde backed up Rivera with 12 points apiece.

Rivera's last charity came with 10 seconds left, and it finalized the count right after James Abugan allowed PATTS to threaten anew with a triple. - GMANews.TV

Mariners drown Sea Horses

THE Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners sizzled with their triples in the second period and whacked the PATTS School of Aeronautics Sea Horses, 83-59, yesterday in the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association men’s basketball tournament at the Olivarez College Gym in Sucat, Parañaque.

Jay Aranzaso unloaded 11 of his 13 points in the second period, helping the Mariners rip the game apart and post their sixth triumph in nine outings.

Aranzaso’s baskets included three of five treys, which the Mariners unleashed in the last 10 minutes of the first half to take charge with a 40-29 half-time advantage in the tournament also presented by Petron, Molten and Mikasa Balls.

Earlier, the defending champion Arellano University Baby Chiefs and the St. Francis of Assisi Dovelets turned back separate rivals to grab the lead in the junior action.

Earl Jay Limboy showed the way with 21 points as the Baby Chiefs turned back Olivarez College High School, 76-72.

Sanijay Trinidad topscored for 27 points as he carried the Dovelets to a 69-48 win over the Immaculate Conception Academy, the junior squad of Emilio Aguinaldo College.

The Mariners moved in contention for a Final Four semi-finals slot as they now share the same (6-3) record with the Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings and the La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots.

It was the Mariners’ first win after two straight setbacks in the absence of power forward Jessie Bustos, who is back in action after suffering a sprained ankle.

“Naka-recover na kami at nakakuha na rin ng momentum,” said Mariners coach Lency Aranzaso.

The Mariners unleashed a 13-3 run off the efforts of Roger Malig-on and Jerry Lumongsod at the start of the third canto to grab a 52-32 spread. Peter Atencio

Assisi a win from finals

THE ST. FRANCIS of Assisi College Doves survived the spirited challenge of the Asia College of Science and Technology Lightnings, 73-68, and moved within a win of clinching the first finals berth the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association men’s basketball tournament yesterday at the Olivarez College gym in Sucat, Parañaque.

Leomer Losentes, Rex Leynes, Raymund Ilagan and Jay Tan struck hard in the last three minutes to help Doves notch their 10th straight win in the tournament also supported by Petron, Mikasa and Molten Balls.

The Doves can claim an outright finals berth should they hurdle the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals in their last elimination-round game on Jan. 29.

The Philippine School of Business Administration Jaguars, on the other hand, stayed firm at second spot by routing the Olivarez College Sea Lions, 88-78.

The Jaguars picked up their seventh win in nine outings and are the top candidates for the second slot in the Final Four, where a twice-to-beat incentive is at stake.

Vic Manuel poured in 32 points for the Jaguars, while Ryan Molina and Rodel Sagon tallied 15 and 13 points, respectively.

Ilagan showed the way for the Doves with 20 points, while Losentes and Leynes contributed 15 and 12 points, respectively.

"Naging maganda ang preparation namin sa kanila, We were aggressive against them. Lagi kasi kaming nata-trap. Pero ngayon, inatake namin ang press nila," said Doves coach Gabby Velasco.

EAC boosts semis bid

GESTER EBUAN scored 22 points, including four in the extra period, as Emilio Aguinaldo College beat Asian College of Science and Technology, 76-72, Sunday to boost its semifinals bid in the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the EAC Sports Complex.

It was the seventh win in 10 games for the Generals, who gained a share of third spot with Philippine Merchant Marine School in this tournament also supported by Petron, Mikasa and Molten Balls.

EAC will earn the No. 2 spot in the Final Four with a victory over St. Francis of Assisi College at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Olivarez College Gym.

The Doves, on the other hand, will advance to the finals if they complete an 11-game sweep of the eliminations.

“We can still have a twice-to-beat advantage. But we have to beat St. Francis and keep them from sweeping the eliminations,” said Generals coach Nomar Isla.

The Lightnings, who struggled in the last two minutes after key players led by Nikko Pupos fouled out, finished the elimination round with a 6-5 record. They threatened for the last time at 68-70 after Harvey Igtos split his charities.

But the Generals stayed ahead with 39 ticks to go after Ebuen converted a free throw and Argel Mendoza scored on Ebuen’s assist, 73-68.

Valderama made two more charities with 25 seconds to go to preserve the Generals’ five-point lead, 75-70, before he fouled out in the ensuing play.

The Generals forced the extension period at 60-all when Cameroon-born Romeo Fotue scored on a barreling shot with eight ticks remaining.

Defending champion Arellano University hacked out an 86-69 victory over Rizal Technological University to boost its semis bid in the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament yesterday at the Arellano gym in Legarda, Manila.

With their 8th win in 10 games, the Chiefs overtook the Philippine School of Business Administration for second spot. The Jaguars are toting a 7-3 slate.

Emilio Aguinaldo College ended its elimination round on a high note by crushing St. Francis of Assisi College, 77-58, in a win that enabled the Generals to tie the Philippine Merchant Marine School at 8-3.

Despite the loss, the Doves still clinched the top seeding in the semis owing to their 10-1 record.

Gio Ciriacruz led the Chiefs with 25 points while Adrian Celada contributed 16, and Ricky Nulla had 15.

The Chiefs took control early, with Ciriacruz scoring one of Arellano’s four treys in the first period.

Chiefs back in NCRAA finals

DEFENDING champion Arellano University earned a return trip to the finals of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament.

The Chiefs weathered a spirited stand from the Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners, 97-83, yesterday for the win which gave them the golden opportunity to seek a second straight NCRAA crown.

Adrian Celada led the Chiefs with 27 points, including 12 points in the first period as the champs dictated the tempo of the game early with a commanding 27-16 edge.

Jerome Agustin, who provided 12 of his 17-point tally in the first quarter, also gave the Chiefs a big lift. His triple sparked a 14-6 run, which gave Arellano U that 11-point lead from a shaky 13-10 advantage.

"It’s the pressure of the game. Buti na lang at nawithstand nila. Hanggang sa dulo, nanduon pa rin sila. Salamat sa Diyos at nakabalik kami sa finals," said Chiefs coach Leo Isaac.

A triple from Rey Neil Samartino and a putback from Jessie Bustos allowed the Mariners to gain some ground, 66-75, but Jordan Melanio’s incursions with 4:24 left kept the Chiefs ahead in the remaining time, 88-75.

Earlier, Kervin Vercasion banged in 27 points for Olivarez College as it downed Rizal Tech, 90-71, in the junior action.

Generals force ‘rubber’
By Peter Atencio

Cameroon native Romeo Fotue shone the brightest for Emilio Aguinaldo College as the Generals denied St. Francis of Assisi College Doves a trouble-free trip to the finals with a 78-71 win on Thursday in the Final Four of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association men’s basketball tournament at the Olivarez College Gym in Sucat, Parañaque.

Fotue scattered 28 points, four of them treys, to lead the Generals in forcing a no-tomorrow showdown for the right to challenge defending champion Arellano University Chiefs for the title for the second straight year.

The Generals and the Doves clash again in the winner-take-all contest today at 11 a.m. at the EAC Sports Complex.

A win by the Generals will deny the Doves a chance to advance to the finals in this tournament also presented by Petron, Mikasa and Molten.

“We’ll play them [St. Francis] in our own homecourt. We hope we can take advantage of this,” said EAC coach Nomar Isla.

The Chiefs earned a return trip following a hard-earned 97-83 win over Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners, 97-83. The victory lines up Arellano U for a chance to win back-to-back crowns.

Leomer Losentes, who led the Doves with 19 points, had 10 in the first quarter as the Doves took an early 11-point spread, 24-13.

But the Doves, who missed injured big man Michael Rabor, failed to sustain their fire as Losentes was held scoreless by Fotue’s tight defense.

With Losentes cuffed, the Doves were held to a mere four points in the second quarter, allowing the Generals to move ahead, 28-26, at half time.

The Generals then turned to John Valderama, who scored key baskets in the next two quarters.

Valderama, who had 17 points, scored on a jumper and a trey to give the Generals a 51-50 third-quarter bubble in the middle of an 8-0 spurt that put the Generals safely on top, 70-59, with 3:17 remaining.

It's Arellano versus St Francis for the NCRAA title

Chiefs face Doves in best-of-3 finals

Undermanned St. Francis of Assisi College Doves banked on defense in the final minute to defeat Emilio Aguinaldo College, 79-76, Saturday at the Emilio Aguinaldo College Sports Center and barge into the finals of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament.

The Doves forced two crucial turnovers in the last 55 second-defensive plays, which propelled the Gabby Velasco-mentored quintet to the best-of-three finals against the waiting defending champion Arellano University Chiefs, the league said also on Saturday.

With the Doves hanging on to a precarious 77-76 advantage, Generals' standout Argel Mendoza lost control of the ball to the pesky defense of Rex Leynes, who then assisted a double-teamed and foul-troubled Raymund Ilagan to the winning jumper with 35 ticks left.

The Doves then kept their composure and held their ground afterwards as Mendoza missed an attempt for EAC in the return play and St. Francis' Jay Tan bungled two charity attempts with eight seconds left.

The Generals, who were looking forward to another finals showdown with the Chiefs, bungled another golden opportunity to win it as time expired on John Valderama, who was all set to fire a game-tying triple.

Leomer Losentes, who led the Doves with 35 points, forced the second turnover when he snatched the ball away from Valderama.

"Despite his foul trouble, I kept Raymund inside, and he was able to hang on," said Velasco, who will now try to steer the Doves to another title against the Chiefs after a year's absence.

Ilagan, who took on the role of injured Michael Rabor, tallied 21 points, while Tan had nine.

The Generals, who lost main man Gester Ebuen to an ankle injury last week, got 22 points from Alain Musni, while Cameroon standout Romeo Fotue and Valderama had 17 and 15 points, respectively.

Game 1 between the Chiefs and the Doves is on Tuesday.

Chiefs beat Doves, 73-69, in Game 1 of NCRAA caging finals

Defending titlist Arellano University defeated St. Francis of Assisi College, 73-69, in Game 1 of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament finals on Tuesday at the Olivarez College Gym in Parañaque.

The victory propelled the Chiefs closer to defending the crown they bagged last season against the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, according to an NCRAA statement issued on Tuesday.

Defensive plays by Jerome Agustin and Jordan Melano in the last 10.5 seconds ensured that the Chiefs will move one win away from posting back-to-back title victory.

"It was a great game for both teams," Chiefs coach Leo Isaac said. "We just maintained our discipline up to the last second."

The Chiefs will go for the clincher on Thursday.

In the other game of the day, the Emilio Aguinaldo Generals salvaged a third place finish with a 98-88 win over the Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners.

John Valderama provided the offensive lift for the Generals with his 29-point performance while temmate Romeo Fotue added 18. - GMANews.TV

AU Chiefs claim NCRAA finals edge
02/20/2008

Defending champion Arellano University relied on two big defensive stops at endgame to turn back St. Francis of Assisi College, 73-69, yesterday in Game One of the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the Olivarez College gym in Sucat, Parañaque.

Turnovers forced by Jerome Agustin and Jordan Melano in the last 10.5 seconds enabled the Chiefs to move a win, shy of retaining the crown they won last year from the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals.

After Gio Ciriacruz scored on a putback, Agustin kept the ball in the Chiefs’ possession with his steal off James Castanarez.

Agustin’s two charities with 1:15 to go, allowed the Chiefs to move ahead by five, 72-67.

Es Santos managed to keep the Doves within striking distance with his driving shot, 69-72, with 57 seconds left, before turnovers killed their chances to turn the game around.

Earlier, the Generals claimed third place following a 98-88 beating of the Philippine Merchant Marine School Mariners in the tournament also backed by Petron, Mikasa and Molten balls.

John Valderama led the Generals with 29 points while Cameroon cager Romeo Fotue had 18.

The Doves lost a chance to send the game into an overtime when Melano forced Losentes to miss an attempt with 10.5 ticks remaining.

Team skipper Nathaniel Estilo then sank two charities 9.6 seconds left to give the Chiefs a four-point cushion at endgame.

Ciriacruz showed the way for the Chiefs with 19 points while Adrian Celada and Agustin provided 18 and 11 points, respectively.

The Chiefs will try to clinch the second straight crown when they clash with the Doves on Thursday.

Chiefs beat Doves, 61-60, to bag NCRAA caging title
02/21/2008 | 06:40 PM

The smallest player on the floor made the biggest shot on Thursday to propel the Arellano University Chiefs to getting a back-to-back title in the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament.

Five-foot-one Leonard Anquillo made a quick steal off an inbounding Leomer Losentes in the last six seconds and sprinted for a layup at the buzzer, propelling the Chiefs to a thrilling 61-60 victory over the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves to keep their NCRAA title on Thursday at the jam-packed Arellano gym in Manila.

According to an NCRAA statement, the Chiefs swept their best-of-three series with the Doves, 2-0, after taking Game 1 with a 73-68 win.

Anquillo, who was elevated to the collegiate ranks for his gutsy plays which handed the Arellano University Baby Chiefs the junior crown last year, scored only two points.

He made his move right after topscorer Adrian Celada brought the Chiefs closer, 59-60, with his sixth triple for the afternoon.

"Our hard work paid off in a miraculous way," Chiefs coach Leo Isaac said.

Celada led the Chiefs with 24 points, while team skipper Nathaniel Estilo banged in 12.

Celada was later named as Most Valuable Player, while Losentes, who scored 23 points, earned Mythical Five honors, along with Raymund Ilagan of S. Francis, Gio Ciriacruz of Arellano, and John Valderrama of Emilio Aguinaldo College.

A triple from Celada tied the count at 56-all, for the last time. Then, the Doves fought their way to a 60-56 advantage on charities coming from Es Santos and Francis Martin.

Inside plays from Losentes at the start of the third quarter allowed the Doves to bounce back from a 26-36 half-time deficit and force a 40-all tie off his trey.

Baby Chiefs vs Baby Technocrats, 65-59

In the men's juniors game, the Baby Chiefs turned to the free throw line in the endgame to stop Rizal Technological University Baby Technocrats, 65-59, and moved a win shy of sweeping the elimination round.

EJ Limboy and Jenel Javier fired crucial charities in the last eight seconds to carry the Baby Chiefs to their eighth straight victory.

Limboy and Javier struck with their free throws moments after RTU came threatening by three, 59-62.

Levi Hernandez topscored for the Baby Chiefs with 25 points.

Earlier in the women's games, RTU won over St. Francis, 78-48, while La Salle-Dasmariñas defeated Emilio Aguinaldo College, 56-55. - GMANews.TV

Arellano Repeats As NCRAA Champs On A Miracle Win (http://www.ubelt.com/tourney/evt/story.aspx?tourney=ncraa&evt=mbb&id=1497)
by Jonas Terrado

It took a steal by the smallest player on the floor to hand Arellano University its second straight title after defeating St Francis of Assisi College, 61-60, in a dramatic Game 2 of the 15th Smart-NCRAA men’s basketball finals at the Arellano University gym in Legarda, Manila last February 21.

Leonard Anquillo came through for the Chiefs when he stole the ball off a deflected inbound pass with five seconds left before racing all the way for an uncontested layup, his only basket of the match, as time expired to send an overflow partisan crowd in euphoria.

It was a pulsating win for Arellano, who blew a big 20-point second quarter lead and trailed by four points in the waning seconds to become the first team since St Francis' five straight from 1999-2004 to repeat as champions.

"Sabi ni coach (Leo Isaac), last five seconds pigilan namin 'yung inbound tapos kapag hindi bigay kami ng foul, pero sakto nagkataon na naagaw ko yung bola," said Anquillo, a current fourth-year high school student who was inserted into the senior's squad because he reached the league's maximum age limit to play for the juniors' team.

A desperate three by Adrian Celena off a looseball cut the margin to 60-59 with six seconds remaining after Doves guard Rex Leynes missed a driving layup on the other end that could have sealed the contest.

After a timeout, and a non-shooting foul that slashed a second off the clock, a pass coming from the midcourt line intended for Leomer Losentes was deflected by an Arellano defender allowing Anquillo to retrieve the ball that set up the game-winning score.

"This shows that hardwork pays off, if you work hard, you will be rewarded," said Isaac, who last year steered the Legarda-based school to its first cage crown in only their third season as NCRAA member.

Celada finished with a game-high 24 points, 11 coming in the final canto, to come away with the Most Valuable Player honors along with a Mythical Five selection.

It was a sorry loss for the Las Piñas-based cagers, who flirted for a clean slate in the elimination round and an outright finals berth. But the Doves lost their last game of the season and barely made it past Emilio Aguinaldo College in the final four to reach the championship round.

After a tight start, Arellano blew the game wide open as they stormed to a 33-13 edge in the first half, thanks to a bursting 14-0 blitz in between the first and second periods while holding St Francis without a field goal during a span of 10 minutes.

But the Doves chopped the margin to 36-26 at halftime before Losentes exploded for 13 of his 23 points in the third quarter to give St Francis a 47-45 lead.

St Francis took control for the majority of the fourth quarter with Francis Martin sinking a three-point play for a 56-53 mark with 4:59 left only for Celeda to tie the count for the final time on a triple, 56 seconds later.

Two charities by Martin and a Jay Tan layup, off a Chiefs miscue on the other end, gave the Doves a four-point cushion, 60-56, with 2:22 remaining and stopped several offensive attempts by the hosts during the homestretch.

"Narelax sila masyado, akala nila di na lalaban ang St Francis pero buti naman nagkaroon kami ng second chance para manalo," said Isaac.

Nathaniel Estilo and Jerome Agustin scored 12 and eight markers, respectively, for the Chiefs while Leynes, Martin, and Raymund Ilagan all had nine for the Doves.

During the awarding rites, Celada joined teammate Gio Ciriacruz, Losentes, Ilagan and EAC's John Valderama as member of the league's Mythical Five.

Back-to-back for Chiefs in NCRAA (http://www.mb.com.ph/SPRT20080222117626.html)

Arellano University leaned on the end-game heroics of guard Leonard Anquillo to eke out a pulsating 61-60 victory over St. Francis of Assisi College and retain the 15th Smart-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) basketball crown yesterday at the Arellano gym in Legarda.

The 5-foot-1 Anguillo, who also starred for their high school’s championship last year, scored only two points but his lone basket proved lethal.

After Adrian Celada knocked in his sixth triple that pushed them to within 59-60, Anquillo intercepted an inbound pass by Leomer Losentes in the last six seconds and sprinted to their court for the game-winning shot.

With the win, the Chiefs swept their best-of-three series with the Doves. They took Game 1, 73-68.

Meanwhile, the Arellano University Baby Chiefs used the free throw line to escape with a 65-59 win over Rizal Technology and move a win shy of sweeping the elimination round.

I thought Leonard Anquillo was not allowed to play in the Chiefs' remaining games due to the fact that he is a "part time" high school student. Meaning he has only 4 subejcts enrolled in high school. di ba dapat pag high school student ka, all subjects enrolled ka or not enrolled at all? dapat na forfeit ang lahat ng games na nag laro si Anquillo. ano magic nanaman kaya ang nangyari dito? overaged na siya for high school kaya sa college na siya nag lalaro.

curious lang ako ano nangyari sa issues regarding sa players na ito.

1. Carino of PSBA (walang pinasang subject for the last 2 years nung nasa RTU pa siya)
2. PMMS player na identity switching daw.

THIS WAS a rule that existed during the old days of the NCAA, wherein outstanding high school seniors may see action in the college division. Of course, the rule has been discontinued now.

1. I dont want to be a conspiracy theorist but sinu ba host ng NCRAA? Diba PSBA at sinu ba ang athletic director ng PSBA and president of the NCRAA?
2. As mentioned in the other thread, nakalusot daw sa NCRAA board ang PMMS player dahil nakapagpresent sila ng document proving that he is indeed carrying the name.
