Cebu Daily News
Last updated 04:06pm (Mla time) 11/12/2007

CEBU CITY, Philippines - After two unsuccessful stints abroad, NBC-Spring Cooking Oil will try to finally bring home the bacon when it competes in the 2007 Johor Invitational Basketball Tournament slated November 13 to 18 in Malaysia.

The Oil Masters, spearheaded by NBC President Nathaniel “Tac” Padilla, previously competed in Malaysia and Taiwan but could not come up with a positive result as they came up empty in those campaigns.

NBC, however, remains hopeful that it can still win abroad and show that the Filipino cagers are still one of the best in Southeast Asia.

The upcoming tournament is organized by the National basketball League (NBL) and will have Indonesia Basketball League’s Aspac, collegiate teams from China, the Singapore and Hong Kong and the national team of Malaysia.

The Oil Maters are composed of Niño Marquez, Mar Reyes, Don Villamin, Nani Epondulan, Danny Capobres, Ariel De Castro and new recruits Henry Fernandez, Ronald Lamocha, Allan Quibod and Paul Napo.

Former RP Team coach Boysie Zamar will serve as head coach and will be assisted by Efren “Yong” Garcia and Dodong Cagampang. /Correspondent Calvin D. Cordova

NBC-Spring rips Indons in Johor Invitationals

Monday, November 19, 2007

JOHOR, Malaysia: The NBC-Spring Cooking Oil Selection dumped Indonesia Basketball League’s Aspac team, 85-67, Saturday and boosted its bid for a top two finish in the 2007 Johor Invitational basketball tournament at the Larkin Stadium here.

The Cooking Oil Masters of NBC President Nathaniel “Tac” Padilla and Tagaytay Mayor and league EVP Bambol Tolentino tightened their defense in the payoff period to turn what had looked a thriller into a runaway triumph, the Filipinos’ third in four games.

Henry Fernandez’s hot perimeter shooting and Danny Capobres’ dominating performance in the shaded area lifted the Filipinos’ spirit after their sluggish play in the first three quarters.

“We played smarter basketball in the second half and we started hitting our targets. That’s the key to our win,” said coach Boysie Zamar.

The Filipinos trailed 18-20 after 10 minutes and were held by the Indons’ pesky defense to a 39-all standoff at the turn.

But NBC-Spring finally hit its stride in the third to move ahead, 62-57, going into the last canto.*

Last updated 02:09pm (Mla time) 11/20/2007

CEBU CITY, Philippines - NBC-SPRING Cooking Oil’s third international stint this year had a decent result as it scored a come-from-behind 93-75 win over China-Parklane for a silver finish in the 2007 Johor Invitational Basketball Tournament at the Larkin Stadium in Johor, Malaysia.

NBC wrapped up its campaign with four wins and one loss, just slightly behind host team Malaysia, which won the championship trophy after going 5-0 (win-loss).

Tournament format states that at the end of the competition, the team that has the most number of wins will be declared champion.

Malaysia defeated NBC, 87-75, in a game that the Filipinos could have won after taking control in the first three quarters only to collapse in the final period.

NBC trailed China after the first period, 14-20 and at the half, 41-45.

Ronald Lamocha, Henry Fernandez and Niño Marquez then went on to work for NBC as they masterminded a tide-turning run that saw the Filipinos taking a 68-61 lead with one quarter left.

NBC went unstoppable in the fourth en route to the convincing win, allowing the Filipinos to bounce back from two unsuccessful campaigns abroad last month. Lamocha topped NBC with 18 points.
