Players and team officials of UAAP and NCAA who made great impact this year will be honored when the UAAP and NCAA Press Corps hold the 2007 Collegiate Basketball Awards presented by ANTA on Oct. 25 at the Manila Pavilion.


Coach Franz Pumaren leads the list of winners as Coach of the Year for steering La Salle to an improbable sweep of Univerity of the East in the UAAP finals.

San Beda’s Rogemar Menor is named San Miguel Corp. Scoring Champion for averaging in double figures in their two-game sweep of Letran in the NCAA finals.

Yousif Aljamal, another star from San Beda who is now playing for Talk 'N Text in the PBA, leads the Mythical First Five along with NCAA MVP Kelvin dela Peña, UAAP MVP Jervy Cruz of University of Santo Tomas, UE’s Mark Borboran and Ateneo de Manila’s Chris Tiu in the event supported by San Miguel Corp., the Philippine Sports Commission, Hapee Toothpaste, Harbour Centre and Toyota Balintawak.

JV Casio was Menor’s counterpart in the UAAP while teammate Cholo Villanueva bagged the Mr. Clutch plum for making big play at cruncht time.

Villanueva coincidentally shared the UAAP Finals MVP honor with Casio.

Best of UAAP, NCAA honored

MANILA, Philippines -- Coach Franz Pumaren of UAAP champion De La Salle University was in the mood for a few laughs after receiving the Coach of the Year award during the 2007 Anta Collegiate Basketball Awards Night recently at the Manila Pavilion.

“Thank you to Malacañang for this package,” said Pumaren -- alluding to the political controversy on bribe money in paper bags -- after receiving a gift package that came with the recognition.

The awards night was jointly put together by the UAAP and NCAA press corps to honor the top performers of both varsity leagues. And when it was his turn to pass off the honor bestowed on him, Pumaren took on a less humorous tone.

“But seriously, I wouldn’t be here without my players, coaching staff, the management and the La Salle community.”

And neither would he have been feted if not for what he accomplished: Steering La Salle from the depths of suspension into collegiate glory; piercing through the heart of the steam-rolling University of the East on the way to the UAAP title.

It was a painful defeat for the elimination-sweeping Warriors, but the awards night provided a balm of sorts for some of its staunchest officials.

“The award somehow soothes my broken heart that has been hit by an arrow,” UE executive vice president and team manager Carmelita Mateo said after accepting the UAAP Executive of the Year award.

Archers playmaker TY Tang was named Super Senior, sweet-shooting JV Casio hailed as San Miguel Scoring Champion, Cholo Villanueva as Mr. Clutch and Rico Maierhofer as Energy Player.

Back-to-back champion San Beda College led the best athletes in the NCAA with Yousif Aljamal named to the Anta Collegiate Mythical Team, Ogie Menor as the San Miguel Scoring Champion and 6-foot-8 Sam Ekwe as the San Miguel Defensive Player of the Year.

Louie Alas of runner-up Letran College picked up the NCAA Coach of the Year award, while UAAP Most Valuable Player Jervy Cruz of University of Santo Tomas, NCAA MVP Kelvin dela Peña of Mapua Institute of Technology, UE’s Mark Borboran and Ateneo de Manila University’s Chris Tiu completed the Mythical Team.

UAAP secretary-treasure Felicitas Francisco also received a tribute for her contribution to UST’s reputable sports program.

Honored with posthumous citations were former UE assistant coach Gido Babilonia and former Abante Tonite reporter Ace Pasco.

Other awardees: UE’s Paul Lee and Letran’s Rey Guevarra (Sixth Man), Ateneo’s Ford Arao and Letran’s Bryan Faundo (Most Improved), Far Eastern University’s JR Cawaling and Mapua’s Jonathan Banal (Rookie), Letran’s RJ Jazul (Mr. Clutch), Jose Rizal University’s Marvin Hayes (Energy), Ateneo’s Nonoy Baclao (Defensive), UE’s Jorel Cañizares and College of St. Benilde’s Kris Robles (Sportsmanship), JRU’s Vincent Fabella (Executive), La Salle’s Hero Yu and Terry Capistrano and San Beda’s Mike Advani (Team Managers of the Year), La Salle-Zobel’s Joshua Webb and San Sebastian College’s Ryan Buenafe (Juniors MVP) and Ateneo’s Kiefer Ravena (Juniors Rookie).
