Cesafi to put up age group basketball league

AFTER a national TV coverage, another innovation is in the offing for the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi).

In today’s finals of the Reinforced Partners Cup, a Cesafi competition, a new event will be introduced—the battle in the Under 15 event.

The event, patterned after the Paserelle competition of the Milo Best, will be called the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) and is designed as a developmental competition for those 15 years old and younger.

This project, which is the brainchild of basketball patron Rico Navarro, aims to hone age groupers which Navarro said is also important to develop their skills when they play in the juniors and college ball.

“The basketball scene for boys under 15 years old is relatively quiet, and it is our dream to keep them active so we can develop age-group basketball, a crucial part of total basketball development,” said Navarro.

Navarro said this program is just the start of bigger things to come and that the ultimate goal is to turn this into a developmental program for Cesafi.

“Cesafi member-schools are known more for their collegiate and high school divisions. What we would like to achieve is to serve as a program that will enhance or ‘complete’ the over-all basketball programs of these schools: from the collegiate all the way down to the grade school level,” Navarro said.

Cesafi commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy said the idea was pitched to Cesafi president Rolly Villa and feedbacks have so far been positive.

“It is a good plan to develop. It is a good project because it is really important to start developing these kids young,” said Tiukinhoy.

Tiukinhoy added that the idea will be discussed to the board members of Cesafi and if plans don’t miscarry, a competition for the 15-Under just might be a new addition to the Cesafi.

Today’s game between University of San Carlos and University of Southern Philippines Foundation, will show snippets of what the CYBL is all about and will serve as the soft launching for the event.

CYBL, which will officially start on Feb. 9, will be participated by the USC North and South Campuses, Sacred Heart School-Jesuit, University of Cebu, Don Bosco College, Paref-Springdale and USPF.

There will be two age groups to be contested, the 1992 to 94 category and the 1995 to 97 division.

“The over-all plan is to organize basketball activities every January to February, April to May and October to November. These are the most ‘quiet’ periods of basketball for 10 to 15 year old boys,” Navarro said. (MCB)

Baby Webmasters kick off CYBL bid with huge win
Cebu Daily News
First Posted 14:02:00 02/06/2008

The University of Cebu (UC) Baby Webmasters kicked off their campaign in the inaugural Cebu Youth Basketball League with a 92-80 thrashing of the University of Southern Philippines (USP) Baby Panthers yesterday at the Cebu Coliseum.

The Webmasters simply had too much firepower for the lowly Panthers as they established a 35-17 lead in the first period behind the exploits of John Aranas and Patrick Tindoy.

The second period did not offer much of a relief for USP as Christian Taboada exploited the talent disparity to fire off 11 points for a 55-37 halftime lead.

The Panthers showed some fight in the final period behind the hot shooting of Jeffrey Nudalo and Steven Lapina, cutting the lead down to just 10 at one point.

But time ran out for the Baby Panthers as the Baby Webmasters cruised to the win.

Taboada wound up with 15 points while Aranas and Roger Pogoy contributed 14 points apiece.

Nudalo led the way for USP with 21 points while Lapina and Lawrence Escanilla added 12 each.

BOX SCORES:
UC (92) Taboada 15, Aranas 14, Pogoy 14, Tindoy 11, Labo-Labo 9, Palileo 7, Castro 6, Ampoon 5, del Rosario 4, Mohamad 2, Caballero 2, Bayno 1.
USP (80) Nudalo 21, Escanilla 12, Lapina 12, Aying 9, Barro 5, Silon 4, Navarro 4, Cosido 3, Pono 2, Lambujo 2, Salazr 2, Camus 2, Metante 2. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

USC North inks two wins in Cebu Youth Basketball League

THE University of San Carlos North Campus stamped its mark in the first weekend of the Cebu Youth Basketball League as it inked two wins to lead the mini division after Sunday’s matches at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuits gym.

USC North first pulled off a stunning finish with a huge upset over Milo Best Cebu champion and host team SHS-J, 34-26, last Saturday. On Sunday, it mirrored the same thrashing, this time making minced-meat out of Paref-Springdale, 51-15.

USC North, which was paced by John Pajantoy on both occasions, is now on top of the mini division with a 2-0 win-loss record.

After their loss last Saturday against USC North, the SHS-J Eagles recovered and went on to win over Don Bosco College (DBC), 46-39, to improve their record to 1-1, sharing the same slate as that of DBC.

In the midget class, USC North’s sister team, USC-South, also made its own mark as it registered two victories last weekend.

It won over Paref-Springdale, 64-50, last Sunday after their 62-48 trouncing of DBC last Saturday. The team is led by Milo Best veteran Daryl Nazareno, who topscored for the team in both games.

USC South squad currently shared the leaderboard in the midget class with University of Southern Philippines Panthers which has a 2-1 record after winning over DBC, 60-28. (MCB)

Good day. I owe you guys an explanation regarding the CYBL. Below are excerpts from the material that was sent to the various CESAFI school heads and the Commissioner about the Cebu Youth Basketball League....

This should give you an idea of what the CYBL is all about.
Thanks//Rico

---------------------

We would like to give you more details about the kick-off conference of the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL), a tournament/program designed to provide developmental activities and tournaments for the youth (15 years old and younger).

Background: The basketball scene for boys under 15 years old is relatively quiet, and it is our dream to keep them active so we can develop age-group basketball, a crucial part of total basketball development.

The schools that have been invited to become pioneering teams of this tournament are the University of San Carlos North Campus , the University of San Carlos South Campus , Sacred Heart School Jesuit, University of Cebu , Don Bosco College , PAREF Springdale and the University of Southern Philippines Foundation .

As discussed with the coaches of these teams, we will have two age group divisions namely: Midgets (Boys born 1992-93-94) and Mini (Boy born 1995-96-97). We will have a soft opening with one game on February 5, 2008, as a preliminary game to the CESAFI Partners Cup Finals. All other games will run from February 9 to March 2, 2008.

The over-all plan is to organize basketball activities every Jan-Feb, April-May and October-November. These are the most “quiet” periods of basketball for 10-15 year old boys.

Other (important) notes:

This is only the start of bigger things to come, and we are confident that we will reach our dreams of helping the sport among these kids.

The long term dream is to serve as a developmental program for the CESAFI. CESAFI member-schools are known more for their collegiate and high school divisions. What we would like to achieve is to serve as a program that will enhance or “complete” the over-all basketball programs of these schools: from the collegiate all the way down to the grade school level.

Wild Dream: Who knows? What we would like to see in the future is a CESAFI Opening Ceremony that will feature a collegiate team walking hand-in-hand with a 10-year old player from the school’s grade school team.

The term “CYBL” is only temporary. We would like to treat it as a program more than a league per se. The program will include clinics, coaching seminars and tie-ups with other areas.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Should you wish to get to know more about the activity, please don’t hesitate to contact us at bleachertalk@yahoo.com, or cell # 0918-939-3846, 0923-342-8193 (SunCell).

The University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors asserted their dominance in the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) as they continue to lead in the standings of both divisions after the second day of action last Sunday at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuits (SHS-J) basketball courts along Mango Avenue.

In the Mini division, the USC-North followed up its masterful 34-26 victory over Milo BEST Cebu champions SHS-J with a resounding 51-15 thumping of PAREF-Springdale (0-1).

USC was once again led by John Pajantoy, who tallied 11 markers.

The win put the Warriors atop the standings with a 2-0 (win-loss) slate.

On the other hand, the SHS-J Eagles bounced back to equalize their record at 1-1, with a 46-39 victory over Don Bosco. Burly center Reggie Abbu made up for his poor showing in their first outing, by scoring 12 points and combined with forward Adrian Muller to drown the Greywolves (1-1).

In the Midget class, USC-South captured its second straight win after defeating PAREF-Springdale, 64-50.

The other USC squad, the Warriors from the North (1-1) campus, also registered a win as they walloped the reigning Cebu Milo BEST champions SHS-J (0-1), 57-47 while the University of Southern Philippines Panthers (2-1) also got their second straight win, after eking past Don Bosco (1-1), 60-28. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

THE UNIVERSITY of Cebu Baby Webmasters and the University of San Carlos-South Baby Warriors try to solidify their stay on top of the standings in the Midget division when they face separate foes in the Cebu Youth Basketball League-Hapee Cup today at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuits basketball courts along Mango Avenue.

Both the Webmasters and the Baby Warriors tote similar 2-0 (win-loss) cards and will be gunning for win number three today.

UC will be taking on the winless SHS-J Eagles in the curtain raiser while the USC-South will be battling sister team, USC-North in the second game.

The North Warriors hold a 1-1 record after defeating the Eagles, 57-47, last Sunday.

The final game in the Midget class will feature the Don Bosco Greywolves as they try to bounce back from their 60-58 vs. the University of Southern Philippines Foundation against the equally-winless PAREF-Springdale.

In the Mini division, Milo BEST Cebu champions SHS-J Eagles will try to get their second win in three outings when they face USPF.

A Hapee CYBL
BLEACHER TALK By Rico S. Navarro
Sunday, February 17, 2008

For today, I’m going to bend over a bit from Bleacher Talk’S “policies” when I talk about the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL). I normally don’t openly discuss projects which Bleacher Talk directly manages, but this will have to be an exception to the rule and I think you’ll see why.

For some time now, we have always talked about the need to develop basketball among the youth. We’re loaded with a lot of basketball activities at the collegiate and commercial levels, but the youth scene has been very quiet. But when you sum it all up, it doesn’t make sense. We’re top heavy with activities, but the base or foundation isn’t aligned with the top.

To cut a long story short, we just went out and did it. And so the CYBL was born. It sets itself to be a venue for developmental activities for basketball teams in the Under-15 and Under-12 age groups.

The basketball scene for boys under 15 years old is relatively quiet, and it has become our dream to keep them active so we can develop age-group basketball, a crucial part of total basketball development. The only real basketball activity that these age groups have is the Milo Best Center basketball tournament from August to September. Another activity is the Futures Basketball League in December. There is thus a big vacuum of activity from January to July. Somewhere in between, these school-based teams go out on their own to look for exhibition games or tournaments to join with the sole purpose of keeping themselves busy. It is accepted by all that there is no alternative to the real thing: basketball games at the competitive level of a tournament or a basketball league.

With this as a backdrop, we then rushed to get together a pool of coaches who we knew shared the same sentiments and could make quick decisions with the support of their school heads and basketball program managers. It was necessary to meet, decide and act on short notice since the school-year was already approaching its last two months and we needed to launch and end the CYBL’s first activity before the boys take their fourth quarter exams in mid-March.

My first stop was to informally advise the CESAFI about the CYBL through Commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy Jr. Since most of the CYBL teams are CESAFI members, using this network would not only be proper, but strategic as well when looking at the long term. It was no longer surprising to find out that their responses were positive. Our next step will be to reach out to all the other CESAFI member schools and explain the why’s behind the CYBL.

We made it clear to all coaches that the main objective of the CYBL’s first activity was to just simply “get together” and form an initial CYBL group. If we didn’t do it now, the only other time to do so would be in October after the Milo Best tournament. By starting now, we’ll also then have the summer spiced with other CYBL activities that we plan to line up.

Amidst all the rush in getting the group together, Hapee Toothpaste understood our unorthodox-cum-overnight approach and is supporting the CYBL’s opening tournament which is now called the CYBL-Hapee Cup. We’d like to thank Sportsman Jack Huang for being patient and for understanding the situation in which we found ourselves.

We would also like to thank the University of San Carlos North Campus (USC NC), the University of San Carlos South Campus (USC SC), Sacred Heart School-Jesuit, University of Cebu (UC), Don Bosco College (DB), PAREF Springdale and the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) for joining the CYBL’s kick-off conference or tournament.

We set up two age groups: the Midget and Mini divisions. The Midget division (and they’re no midgets) are for boys born in 1992, 1993 and 1994. The Mini division is for boys born in 1995, 1996 and 1997. We had a soft opening when we UC defeated USPF in a game that served as preliminary game at the recently-concluded CESAFI Partners Cup.

Now that it’s off and running, we can already see what the CYBL can become further down the road. This is only the start of bigger things to come, and we are confident that we will reach our dreams of helping the sport among these kids.

The long term dream is to serve as a developmental program for the CESAFI. CESAFI member-schools are known more for their collegiate and high school divisions. What we would like to achieve is to serve as a program that will enhance or “complete” the over-all basketball programs of these schools: from the collegiate all the way down to the grade school level. There are already a few examples of local hardcourt heroes starting their careers at the Mini level, growing up through the Midgets, dressing up as Juniors players before capping their student-athlete days by donning the jersey of just one school. Nino Ramirez (USC), Enrico Llanto (USC) and all those Milo SBP/Pasarelle veterans are examples of this unique loyalty feat. In Manila , the more popular examples are the likes of Ateneo’s Enrico Villanueva, Larry Fonacier, the Reyes brothers and more.

Since there’s no stopping our wild dreams for now, what we would like to see in the future is a CESAFI Opening Ceremony that will feature a collegiate team walking hand-in-hand with a 10-year old player from the school’s CYBL Mini team.

But before anything else, we’re all have to start somewhere and I’d like to believe that we’ve made a pretty good start. I’m also confident that it has the potential to last. But we’ll need everyone’s support. Let’s all help each other to build the CYBL. In the end, we’ll all be a Hapee CYBL.

Webmaster, USC South fortify posts in Hapee Cup

UNIVERSITY of Cebu Webmasters and the University of San Carlos South Campus solidified their hold of the top of the standings in the Cebu Youth Basketball Association-Hapee Cup following another strong win last weekend at the Sacred Heart School Jesuits.

UC clobbered Sacred Heart School-Jesuits, 67-49, at the latter’s home court, while USC SC defeated sister team, USC North Campus, 53-45.

Their wins put them on top of the midget division standing with identical clean 4-0 win-loss slates.

Christian Taboada led UC’s scoring rampage as he tallied 19 points for the team. Roger Pogoy added 15. Leading the offensive for the losing team is Gabe Branzuela, who scored 15.

In the other midget game, Daryl Nazareno made his presence felt once more as he topscored for USC SC with 17 points.

SHS-J continues to spiral downwards as it suffered its third straight loss in the competition. On the other hand, this was USC NC’s second loss after four games.

Meanwhile, Don Bosco College finally barged into the win column of the midget division at the expense of Paref-Springdale, 53-46, to improve its slate to 1-3.

Don Bosco’s counterparts in the mini division, mirrored its midget team’s exploit as it also trounced Springdale in a 61-12 carnage.

Joshua Castro and Iannes Paulus Tabasa paced Don Bosco with 11 points each.

In the other mini game, SHS-J logged another win after defeating University of Southern Philippines Foundation, 63-21, to improve its record to 3-1.

Adrian Muller 14 and Reggie Abbu 12 led SHS-J’s scoring.

The CYBL-Hapee Cup is a developmental league for boys in the Under 15 and Under 12 age groups. This tournament is only a front act to the main events, which are the summer competitions and another year end contest. The competition is also supported by Crunchicken. (MCB)

The University of Cebu (UC) Baby Webmasters vaulted into the top spot in the Midget division of the Cebu Youth Basketball League-Hapee Cup after beating the gritty University of San Carlos-South (USC-South) Baby Warriors, 79-75, in double overtime game last Saturday at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuits (SHS-J) basketball courts.

With a guaranteed finals slot on the line, both teams battled tooth and nail but USC got the upper hand early on, as they raced to a 15-point advantage in the first half, 31-16.

However, UC’s deep bench carried the Baby Webmasters back into the game as stalwarts Roger Pogoy and Gilbert Ampoon combined to keep the Webmasters in the ballgame.

Two free-throws by Pogoy with six ticks remaining in regulation tied the game at 59-all.

USC-South had a chance to win the game on the ensuing possession but Dominic Nazareno’s point-blank shot rimmed out as time expired.

The first overtime session ended in 68-all but UC finally seized control of the game in the second extra session as it went on a 10-3 run to finally put away the Warriors.

Pogoy scored a game-high 20 points while Ampoon contributed 17 markers.

In other games, USC-South clobbered the University of Southern Philippines, 64-48, while SHS-J beat PAREF-Springdale, 64-29.

In the Mini division, USC-North claimed the last finals slot as it edged Don Bosco, 35-32. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

UC, USC North Score Sweeps in CYBL

The University of Cebu (UC) and University of San Carlos North Campus ( USC NC ) scored close wins over upset-conscious foes to sweep their respective divisions at the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) – Hapee Cup over the weekend.

UC scored a close 79-75 win over USC South Campus ( USC SC ) in double overtime to take solo leadership of the Midget division. USC SC was on its way to scoring a big upset over the pre-tournament favorites as they led UC throughout the game. And with the game tied at 59-all and six seconds left, USC SC broke down the full-court trap of UC perfectly, but Daryl Nazareno missed from point blank as time expired. The first overtime was a repeat of the last five minutes of regulation as both teams traded baskets and lead changes. With UC down 67-68, UC’s Gerald Ampoon had a chance to lead UC to a win, but could only split his charities to tie the game anew and send it into a second overtime. The second overtime was an all-UC show as they streaked with 10-3 run that broke the backs of USC South Baby Warriors.

In the Mini division, USC NC nipped Don Bosco, 35-32 to sweep the division and arrange a championship showdown with rival Sacred Heart School Jesuit (SHSJ). USC NC started out hot to take a 14-9 first quarter lead, but Don Bosco retaliated by holding USC North to only a basket in the second period to take a 19-16 halftime lead. USC then countered with a crippling full-court trap to limit Don Bosco to single point to tie the game at 20-all at the end of the third. Rey Arnejo and John Pajantoy then took over in the fourth, combining for nine points to score the win.

In other Midget division games, USC North defeated USPF, 64-48. SHSJ scored it first win over Springdale , 64-29, but fell to Don Bosco a day later, 57-65. USC South recovered from the UC loss with a 57-43 humping of USPF as UC pounced on Springdale 88-32.

UC will now face USC South in the championship game of the Midget division while USC NC will go up against SHSJ in the Mini division. These games will be played at the City Sports Club Cebu on March 2.

Team standings have UC on top with a 6-0 slate in the Midget division. They are followed by USC SC (5-1), USC NC (3-2), USPF (2-3), Don Bosco (2-3), SHSJ (1-4) and Springdale (0-6). The final elimination round standings in the Mini division sees USC NC at 4-0, SHS (3-1), Don Bosco (2-2), USPF (1-3) and Springdale (0-4).

The CYBL-Hapee Cup is the kick-off tournament of the CYBL which seeks to provide a venue for basketball activities for the youth. The Midget division is for boys born 1992-1994, while the Mini division is for boys born 1995-1997. The opening salvo is also supported by Crunchicken.

UNIVERSITY of San Carlos (USC) North Campus and Sacred Heart School Jesuits (SHS-J) battle for the mini division crown of the Cebu Youth Basketball League-Hapee Cup today at the City Sports Club Cebu basketball court.

In the midget division on the other hand, University of Cebu and USC South Campus will square off for the crown.

The mini division final battle will showcase USC, a strong defensive team against the SHS-J’s strong inside scoring.

SHS-J Eagles will have vengeance on their minds after USC North Campus hacked the upset axe on them during the elimination round. SHS-J is considered the seeded team in this division since it is the reigning SBP champions of the Milo Best competition.

The Eagles’ charge will be led by its top gunners Reggie Abbu, Adrian Muller and Kiefer Lim.

USC North Campus, on the other hand, which aims to complete a sweep over the Eagles, will be led by Rey Arnejo, John Pajantoy and Tecson Gacrama.

In the midget division, USC North Campus will be up for a gargantuan task as it will be going up against an undefeated UC team.

The two teams have been tightly contesting the top spot during the elimination. When they finally faced each other, UC survived USC North Campus in double overtime, thus taking the pole position.

Expected to lead the carnage for UC are Roger Pogoy, Christian Taboada and Gerald Ampon.

USC South Campus meanwhile, which had a strong outside shooting, will have Dominic and Daryl Nazareno, Joven Sepe and Jake Gabuya to pace the team.

The championship match in the mini division will start at 9:45 a.m., while the midget championship will be at 11. The finals matches follow the battle for third place between Don Bosco and University of Southern Philippine Foundation in the mini division and USC North Campus and USPF in the midget class. (MCB)

ALL USC SHOW IN CYBL

It was an all USC show at the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) Championship Sunday as the sister schools from the North and South Campuses scored contrasting wins to bag the Mini and Midget division championships of the CYBL-Hapee Cup.

USC South controlled most of the game, succumbed to a spirited rally, only to recover just in time defeat the University of Cebu, 77-72 in overtime to win the Midget division championship. In the Mini division, USC North scored a dramatic come-from-behind win over the Sacred Heart School Jesuit, 46-41 to complete a perfect run to the championship.

USC South went to their full-court trap from the onset to control the first half of the game, controlling the first quarter 24-13, and enjoying a 35-23 lead at the half. Joven Sepe and Dominic Nazareno took over in the first quarter while Jake Gabuya took care of the second period. UC, however, bounced back with a strong third quarter behind Roger Pogoy’s eight points, closing the gap to 41-44 at the end of the third period. This set the stage for a nerve-wracking fourth quarter where UC rallied from behind to send the game to overtime. UC cut the lead down two points twice at 49-51 and 56-58 with 40 seconds remaining in the game. Christian Taboada completed the rally, registering the only tie of the game at 58-all with an outside jumper with 20 seconds left to send the game into overtime.

USC South immediately went to their full-court trap to start out the overtime with a 6-2 run, capped by an offensive foul on Taboada and a UC turnover. UC moved to within three at 63-66, but Dominic Nazareno replied with a lay-up to give USC South a 68-63 lead, with 1:45 left in the game. And just as Roger Pogoy pushed UC to 64-68, MVP Jake Gabuya drilled a triple and a scored on a lay-up to give USC South a comfortable 73-64 lead with 1:10 left.

Gabuya led USC South with 21 points including 13 in the fourth quarter and overtime. Sepe chipped in 16. Pogoy led UC with 22 points while Taboada added 12.

In the Mini division, USC North rallied from a 14-point third quarter deficit to complete a sweep of all their games in the league. SHSJ was in control of the game and was headed for a victory, leading 39-25 at the start of the fourth quarter. USC then went to their vaunted full-court trapping and limited SHSJ to only two free throws in the pay-off period. The Warriors scored 16 unanswered points to take a 41-40 lead, 2:44 left in the game. SHSJ scored its first point of the fourth period with 2:17 left in the game. John Pajantoy made up for a lackluster second quarter performance by ripping the SHSJ defense with 15 of his 18 points in the final period alone.

Pajantoy led USC North with 18 points while Rey Arnejo added 10. Adrian Muller and Reggie Abbu combined for 24 points to lead SHSJ.

The CYBL is a developmental league that was established and designed to provide a venue for basketball activities for teams in the Under 15 and Under 12 age groups. The next activity will be the CYBL Summer League 2008 in May. The CYBL-Hapee Cup is also supported by Crunchicken.

USC Baby Warriors sweep 2 CYBL crowns
March 6, 2008, Thursday

by Marian Baring

THE University of San Carlos Baby Warriors pulled off a twinkill in the Cebu Youth Basketball League Hapee Cup after winning the mini and midget division titles yesterday at the City Sports Club Cebu basketball court.

USC North repeated their elimination round exploit over Sacred Heart School Jesuit with a 46-41 come-from-behind win to claim the mini division crown.

USC North had to pass through the eye of the needle before taking the win. The Baby Warriors were running out of time as they were behind by as much as 17 points in the final quarter. But instead of just accepting defeat, USC NC, with the leadership of John Pajantoy, fired up and went on a searing 21-2 run to steal the title.

Pajantoy scored 18 points in the rally to help the team win the crown, earning the Most Valuable Player title. USC NC center Rey Arnejo also scored in double digits after scattering 10 points for the team.

Winning the title completed USC’s bashing of SHS-J, which is the defending regional champion of the Milo Best basketball competition. USC first defeated SHS-J in the elimination round and proved the win was no fluke as they finished off the team in the final round.

Meanwhile, after having been undefeated for the entire tournament, the University of Cebu Baby Webmasters suffered its lone loss in the competition at the most inopportune moment—the championship round.

UC Baby Webmasters badly lost to USC South, 72-77 in overtime to concede the midget division title to the Carolinians.

USC South were actually ahead in the first half but squandered its 13-point lead when it allowed UC’s Roger Pogoy to fire up his team. UC managed to level the game, forcing the extra period.

The Baby Warriors regrouped in extra time to eventually win. USC’s Jake Gabuya was again the vital cog in the team and scored nine of his 21 points in the extra period for their win. Gabuya also earned the MVP.

John Sepe and Dominic Nazareno also scored 16 and 11 points, respectively, for USC in the finals.

With the conclusion of the competition, organizer Rico Navarro said he is confident that the league has a potential to last.

“The response from coaches, players and parents were very positive, and we hope to build from here as we prepare for our other activities later in the year,” said Navarro.

“It wasn’t easy to start it off but we’re happy to have pulled it off. Our basis for evaluating the kick-off league will always be if there is a potential for the league to grow as a venue for youth basketball. So far, so good. We’re all in this for the development of the sport among the youth,” he said. (MCB)

CYBL Kicks Off

The Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) 2009 kicks off Saturday with a nine-game opening salvo at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuit Mango Campus. Expansion is the thrust this year as 29 teams will be seeing action in three different age groups, a big jump from CYBL 2008 that featured 12 teams in two age groups.

The 16-Under division is for players born in 1993, 1994 and 1995. The Tropang Growee 13-Under division is for players born in 1996, 1997 and 1998, while the Tropang Growee 10-Under division is for players born in 1990, 2000 or younger.

Grouped in the 16-Under Division A are defending champions University of San Carlos South Campus, University of Cebu , Sacred Heart School-Jesuit (SHSJ), Don Bosco College A, University of Southern Philippines Foundation and University of San Carlos North Campus-A. Comprising the 16-Under Division B are Cebu Institute of Technology, Salazar Colleges & School of Institute of Technology, SHSJ-B, PAREF Springdale, USJR, Don Bosco College-B, USC North-B, and Bradford Christian School.

The Tropang Growee 13-Under Division A features defending champion USC North, Royal Oaks Int’l School, USC South, SHSJ and Don Bosco College-A. Playing in the Tropang Growee 13-Under Division B are USJR, Southwestern University, Don Bosco College-B, PAREF Springdale and USC North-B.

The youngest cagers will be featured in the Tropang Growee 10-Under age group. Playing here are PAREF Springdale, USC South, Royal Oaks, Don Bosco College and SHSJ.*

In the 16-Under division, all eyes are on the SHSJ team that won the Visayas Regional championship of the Milo BEST SBP/Passerelle tournament and was second in the national finals. Out to thwart them are traditional powerhouses USC North, UC and defending champions USC South.

Milo BEST Cebu SBP champions USC North is favored to repeat in the Tropang Growee 13-Under division, but will expect resistance from Don Bosco and SHSJ. Newcomer Royal Oaks is expected to spring a few surprises. It’s a wide open race in the Tropang Growee 10-Under division.

The 16-Under and Tropang Growee 13-Under age groups have been divided to two divisions according to the strengths of the teams. The objective here is to optimize the level of play among the competitive teams and provide a balanced level of play among the smaller schools. Division A teams are the top teams based on their performance in CYBL 2008 and the BEST SBP/Passerelle basketball tournaments. Division B is composed of the smaller schools with relatively weaker basketball programs.

All the games will be played every weekend at either the SHSJ-Mango Campus or the Don Bosco College Gym in Punta Princesa. The CYBL 2009 is organized in partnership with Growee.

2ND CEBU YOUTH BASKETBALL LEAGUE
UC routs USPF

Cebu Daily News
First Posted 02:53:00 02/08/2009

THE UNIVERSITY of Cebu (UC) Baby Webmasters wasted no time in asserting their might over the competition in the elite 16-under A division of the 2nd Cebu Youth Basketball League, as they waylaid the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers, 98-44, in the tournament's opening games yesterday at the Sacred Heart School-Jesuits (SHS-J) basketball courts along Mango Avenue.

UC capitalized on their manpower advantage with blitzing rallies in the second and third periods, wherein they played four-on-three and five-on-four, respectively.

The tournament is utilizing rules similar to those of the Milo BEST tournament, which ensures playing time for everybody on the squad.

After leading by just nine at the end of the first period, the Webmasters unleashed a crippling 26-12 run that gave them a 46-22 lead at halftime.

Things turned for the worst for USPF in the ensuing period, as they managed to score just five points while allowing UC to belch out 29 markers, for an impregnable 48-point advantage heading into the final stanza.

James Lyle Sumayang, a former player of the USC, led all scorers with 18 points while Alvin Labo-Labo, another standout from the UC squad that won the juniors crown in the Cesafi, added 12 points.

In the 16-under B, the Cebu Institute of Technology Hoop It Up was victorious over SHS-J, 61-28. Elvin Lima-Lima led the way with 12 points while Wilkins Sanchez and Charles Cabanero each had 10 points. The Salazar Institute of Technology also eked past PAREF-Springdale, 45-41.

SHS-J bounced back in the 10-under division, by winning over Don Bosco, 34-21. (Correspondent Jonas Panerio)

UC Baby Webmasters nail another victory

Cebu Daily News
First Posted 13:54:00 02/09/2009

The University of Cebu (UC) Baby Webmasters made mincemeat out of the Sacred Heart School-Jesuits (SHS-J) as they shot down the Eagle in emphatic fashion, 68-48, in a battle of junior basketball powerhouses in the elite 16-under A division of the 2nd Cebu Youth Basketball League Sunday at the SHS-J basketball courts along Mango Avenue.

The game between the Baby Webmasters, champions of the juniors crown in the Cesafi tournament, and the Eagles, regional champions and runners-up in the national finals of the Milo BEST tournament, was billed to be a blockbuster match-up.

UC, however, ambushed SHS-J from the get-go and led, 31-24, at halftime behind the brilliant play of guard Gerald Ampoon.

The game turned wholly into UC's favor in the third stanza as they broke the game wide open with a 17-3 run behind the hot hands of Kris Nalam, Rhuel Padilla, James Sumayang and Kareem Alocillo, along with SHS-J's own offensive ineptness and lack of energy on the defensive end, which gave the Webmasters a commanding 50-32 lead, entering the final period.

Ampoon led the balanced attack with 11 points while Sumayang and Alvin Labo-Labo each added 10 markers.

Meanwhile, the defending champions University of San Carlos-South got their title defense off to a great start after they defeated their sister team, the USC-North, 46-39.

SHS-J bounced back in the 10-under division as they routed PAREF-Springdale, 28-12, behind the 13 points of Jed Colonia.

In another game in the 16-under B division, the Cebu Institute of Technology-Hoop It Up notched their second win in as many outings as they blasted the University of San Jose-Recoletos, 66-52. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

The final cast for the playoffs of the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) was set over the long weekend with the University of Cebu and Sacred Heart School-Jesuit (SHSJ) grabbing the top seed of their respective divisions.

In the Tropang Growee 13-Under division, the SHSJ Eagles grabbed the top seed via the tiebreaker as they were tied with University of San Carlos (USC) North and USC South for the top three spots with identical 3-1 slates. The Eagles lost to USC North 48-51 in overtime over the weekend, but bounced back to defeat Don Bosco-A, 39-35. USC South also defeated Don Bosco-A, 45-43 to create the three-way tie. Using the quotient system, SHSJ claimed the top spot with a 1.21 quotient, followed by USC North’s 1.02 and USC South’s 0.79.

Things were less complicated in the Tropang Growee 10-Under division as SHSJ streaked to a 4-0 record after defeating Royal Oaks International School (ROIS), 36-12. Don Bosco wound up second with a 3-1 record after they beat PAREF Springdale 27-13. SHSJ and Don Bosco will face in each other for the Tropang Growee 10-Under championship.

In the elite 16-Under Division A, UC cruised to its fifth straight win with a 69-36 trashing of USC South. USC North outlasted SHSJ, 64-54. The Baby Webmasters are going into the semifinals as solid favorites to make it all the way. Following them is a three-way tie for second through fourth places among USC North, USC South and SHSJ who all ended with 3-2 records. Using the quotient system to break the tie, USC North came out on top with a 1.03 quotient, followed by USC South’s 1.02 and SHSJ’s 0.96. UC will face the fourth-seeded SHSJ in the semifinals while the sister USC teams face off against each other. Don Bosco-A defeated USPF, 79-73 in a non-bearing game of previously winless teams.

In the Tropang Growee 13-Under Division B, USJR inched its war to the top ranking with a 31-25 win over Don Bosco-B. Don Bosco-B had earlier nipped USC North-B, 36-35. Southwestern University defeated USC North-B, 50-36.

In the other divisions, USJR sealed its place in the finals of the 16-Under Division B after nipping Don Bosco-B, 39-38. The Baby Jaguars also defeated PAREF Springdale, 81-42. Springdale bounced back from the loss to defeat SHSJ-B, 54-42. In other 16-Under Division B games, Don Bosco-B ousted SCSIT, 61-51 and Springdale 75-31. USJR will face idle CIT-Hoop It Up (4-0) in the finals.

The CYBL goes in to its last weekend of elimination round games with all teams already preparing for the semifinal round games. The Growee-backed CYBL 2009 is on its second season with 26 teams playing in three age groups.

SHS-J Eagles enter CYBL 10-U Finals
Cebu Daily News
First Posted 12:53:00 02/24/2009

Several championship clashes were set in the 2nd Cebu Youth Basketball League after last weekend’s games at the Don Bosco College and Sacred Heart School-Jesuits (SHS-J) basketball courts.

The Eagles of SHS-J barged into the finals of the 10-under division as they swept their elimination round assignments, disposing of the Royal Oaks International School in convincing fashion, 36-12.

Leading the way was Andrei Chua who scored 10 points as he helped the Eagles finish the preliminary round with a 4-0 (win-loss) mark.

They will be meeting the Don Bosco Greywolves, who wound up with a 3-1 record after defeating the PAREF-Springdale, 27-13.

Lemuel Jumao-as paced the Bosconians with 15 points.

The 16-under B division's final round has also been settled after the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Baby Jaguars eked past the Don Bosco-B, 39-38.

The win by USJ-R broke the tie between them and Don Bosco and they will now be advancing to the finals. Awaiting them in the championship round will be the Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT)-Hoop It Up who currently are undefeated with a 4-0 mark.

Meanwhile, the semifinal cast of the elite 16-under A division has been competed and it featured a three-way tie that had to be broken with the use of the quotient system.

The rankings were complicated after the University of San Carlos (USC)-North Baby Warriors embarrassed the Milo Best regional champions SHS-J Eagles on their own home floor, 64-54.

In other results, Springdale beat SHS-J, 53-42 for their first win of the tournament. The loss dropped the Eagles to the bottom as they finished their assignments without a single victory.

The win forged a three-way logjam as defending champions US-South, USC-North and SHS-J all ended up with similar 3-2 records. After the quotient system was applied, USC-North grabbed the second seed with a 1.03 quotient while USC-South followed with a 1.02 quotient. SHS-J wound up with the fourth seed as it only had a 0.96 quotient.

The undefeated University of Cebu Baby Webmasters will now face SHS-J in the semifinals, while the USC sister squads will battle for the right to advance to the finals. The semis are slated March 6.

In other games, USC-South edged Don Bosco A, 45-43, in the Tropang Growee 13-under A class but unfortunately, the Carolinians got thrashed by Royal Oaks, 29-57, in their next game.

SHS-J also won via default over Don Bosco to bump their record up to 3-1. The 13-under B class saw Don Bosco beat USC-North B, 36-25. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

USC, Don Bosco Seal Title Clash in CYBL

The University of San Carlos (USC) North Campus and Don Bosco scored convincing wins to arrange a showdown for the championship of the Tropang Growee 13-Under Division A of the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL). USC North upstaged sister team USC South, 44-27, while Don Bosco downed an undermanned Sacred Heart School Jesuit (SHSJ), 52-26.

USC North, which lost in overtime to USC South in the elimination round, made sure that the game wouldn’t be another OT thriller as they broke open a close game courtesy of a big third quarter run. Up by only three at the half, 13-10, the Baby Warriors limited USC South to only five points in the third quarter to take a 31-15 lead after three periods. They then thwarted all USC South attempts to stage a rally. In the other game, Don Bosco exploited the depleted SHSJ line-up that had four players in sickbay and three others still recovering from the flu by starting out hot, taking an 18-6 lead after one quarter and streaking to a 26-8 halftime lead. It was cruise control from then on. The USC NC-Don Bosco clash will be a rematch of the Milo BEST SBP Tournament championship won by USC last year.

In other games, PAREF Springdale recorded its best ever finish in a basketball tournament, finishing third in the Tropang Growee 10-Under division after nipping Royal Oaks International School, 13-12. Down 4-12 after three quarters, Springdale shut down the Royal Oaks offense with their full-court pressure and scored nine points in the fourth quarter to score the come-from-behind win.

In the Tropang Growee 13-Under Division B, USJR/Ave Maria Sanctuary and Don Bosco-B likewise arranged a championship clash for themselves. USJR trounced USC North-B, 53-24, while Don Bosco-B nipped Southwestern University (SWU) in overtime, 44-37. SWU came back a day later to defeat USC North-B, 46-22, to claim third place in the division. In the 16-Under Division B, Salazar College of Science and Institute of Technology (SCSIT) claimed third place after outplaying Don Bosco-B, 73-60.

The championship games of the Tropang Growee 10-Under, 13-Under Division A and 16-Under Division A of the CYBL will be held on Saturday at the Cebu Coliseum, serving as preliminary games of the ongoing CESAFI Partners Cup playoffs. SHSJ faces Don Bosco in the 10-Under division, while the finalists of the 16-Under division will be determined later this week.

Summary of Results

Tropang Growee 13-Under & 10-Under Division:

The University of San Carlos (USC)-North and Don Bosco arranged for themselves a title clash in the Tropang Growee 13-under A division of the 2nd Cebu Youth Basketball League as they won convincingly over their respective opponents in the games last weekend.

USC-North avenged their stinging overtime loss to USC-South in their earlier encounter as they trounced their sister team, 44-27, while Don Bosco capitalized on Sacred Heart School-Jesuits’ (SHS-J) lack of manpower to win via a rout, 52-26.

The 13-under B class also saw their championship match arranged as the Ave Maria Sanctuary-University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) and the Don Bosco-B defeated their respective opponents in the semifinals.

USJR trounced USC North-B, 53-24, while Don Bosco-B nipped Southwestern University (SWU) in overtime, 44-37. SWU though managed to claim third place honors after they defeated USC North-B, 46-22, later in the day.

In the 16-Under Division B, Salazar College of Science and Institute of Technology (SCSIT) claimed third place after outplaying Don Bosco-B, 73-60.

The finalists in the elite 16-under A class will be known this Friday when the semifinals are scheduled to commence.

Press Release

UC, USC NC, SHSJ Top CYBL

In a message to send that youth basketball is very much alive and balanced among the different school-based ballclubs, five different teams ruled the five divisions at the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) 2009 season that ended over the weekend.

In the elite 16 Under Division-A, the University of Cebu (UC) avoided a repeat of the same finals story from last year as they overcame an end-game rally to defeat defending champs University of San Carlos (USC) South Campus, 69-60. UC was in the driver’s seat through most of the game, until complacency turned into an opportunity for USC South to stage a fourth quarter rally that got them to as close as three, 53-56 with five minutes left in the game. USC South was looking to repeat their comeback story of 2008 where they came from behind to defeat UC in overtime. But the Baby Webmasters recovered just in time behind Alexander Nazareno who scored all seven of his points in the fourth period after team leader Gerald Ampo-on fouled out with 3:55 left. Ampo-on led UC with 15 points. He was backed by James Sumayang’s 12. Arsenio Uy III and Joseph Juariza had 11 and 10 points, respectively to lead USC South.

It was a similar story in the Tropang Growee 13 Under Division-A Finals as USC North defeated Don Bosco, 49-34 to record back-to-back CYBL titles. Down 13-18 at halftime after Don Bosco seemed to have the upper hand in controlling the game, USC North went to their dreaded full-court press and the scoring of Michael Balankig to seize control of the game in the third period. USC North went on a 20-4 run to start the quarter and never looked back. Balankig, a role player known more for his defense and rebounding, had a breakout game, scoring 14 points to lead USC.

It was Sacred Heart School-Jesuit’s (SHSJ) turn to shine in the youngest age group, the Tropang Growee 10 Under division where they outscored Don Bosco, 26-20 to become CYBL’s first-ever 10 Under champions. After a close first half with SHSJ on top 8-6, the Eagles went to team captain Jed Colonia who delivered nine of his game-high 13 points in the second half to break the game wide open. SHSJ stretched the lead to 15-10 after three periods then pulled away in the fourth to seal the win. Benedict Andre Chua added six points to support Colonia. Lawrence Hapin led Don Bosco with 12 points while crowd favorite Lance Lemuel Jumao-as had 6.

The University of San Jose Recoletos (USJR)/Ave Maria Sanctuary Park made a big statement in its rookie performance in the CYBL, winning the Tropang Growee 13 Under Division-B championship, toppling Don Bosco-B, 40-31. USJR started out hot, taking a 19-8 lead after the first quarter and thwarted all Don Bosco rallies, switching to cruise control for the rest of the game to bag the championship. Rendel Thomas Senining led USJR with 13 points. Ashton Samson led Don Bosco with 11.

In the 16 Under Division-B, Cebu Institute of Technology/Hoop It Up overcame a tough University of San Jose Recoletos squad, 48-43, to win the championship. The game was nip and tuck all throughout the match with CIT/Hoop It Up always on top but never able to seize a big lead. In the end, it was a case of breaks and the steadier shooting of CIT’s veterans that iced the win. Clyvin Limalima led CIT/Hoop It Up with 12 points, while Jude Go and Stephen Eborlas had eight apiece for USJR.

CYBL Tournament Director Rico Navarro said that for a two-year old league, the CYBL is well within it road map to meeting its long-term goals. “The CYBL 2009 shows that there is a competitive balance among the different school-based teams in Cebu with no single school dominating the competition. We hope this wide base of interest in the sport will multiply and make Cebu Basketball more competitive in the long run.” Navarro said.

The CYBL 2009 tournament is the second season of the league that was established to support the development of youth basketball. This year’s run was organized in partnership with Growee. Plans are now underway to stage a summer league in May.

Summary of Results:

16 Under Division-A Finals: UC d. USC South, 69-60

Tropang Growee 13 Under Division-A Finals: USC NC d. Don Bosco, 49-34

Tropang Growee 10 Under Finals: SHSJ d. Don Bosco, 26-20

16 Under Division-B Finals: CIT/Hoop It Up d. USJR, 48-43

Assumption College Davao Beats USC North

The Assumption College of Davao (ACD) led from start to finish to defeat the University of San Carlos North Campus (USC NC), 80-66, at the start of the CYBL-DYBL Tropang Growee Goodwill Games at the USC North Gym Tuesday.

ACD, which won the championship of the Davao Youth Basketball League (DYBL) Tropang Growee Cup last month, took control of the game early, opening up a 22-14 lead at the end of the first quarter and extending the lead to 41-30 at halftime. ACD then posted a 62-46 lead after three quarters before USC staged a rally, cutting down the lead to as little as eight points in the fourth period. ACD, however, retaliated behind the leadership of Henry Asilum and Zairil Carbonell, dousing any chance of an endgame rally from the hosts.

Four Blue Archers delivered in double digit scoring with Jefferson Roxas leading the attack with 18 points. Carbonell added 16, while Rudolph Zuniga and Asilum added 14 and 12 points, respectively. Michael Balankig and Tecson Gacrama led the hosts with 11 points apiece. The USC NC team was the champion of the Tropang Growee 13 Under Division of the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) 2009.

The CYBL-DYBL Tropang Growee Goodwill Games is a joint project of the CYBL and the Davao Youth Basketball League (DYBL). Both leagues seek to establish an annual summer tournament featuring the best teams from Cebu and Davao.

“This is a good start for us. This goodwill games is only the beginning of more regional action between Visayas and Mindanao, something that both regions really need. We’re proud to have gotten this off the ground and this proves that local sportsmen, with the cooperation of the school-based teams, can get it done. We hope to bring in teams from Bacolod and Iloilo in our next series of games,” CYBL Tournament Director Rico Navarro said.

The visiting ACD Blue Archers are composed of a mix of 14 and 13 Under players and were rewarded with a trip to Cebu for winning the DYBL 2009 tournament. They will also face the 14 Under teams of Sacred Heart School-Jesuit and Don Bosco on their three-day visit to Cebu. The Davao delegation is led by DYBL Tournament Director Rael Diaz and ACD Coach Henry Asilum.

ML Kwarta Padala Backs CYBL 2010

Cebu Basketball’s youth scene received a big boost as ML Karta Padala (MLKP) has stepped up to support the Cebu Youth Basketball League (CYBL) 2010 tournament which kicks off on Sunday at the Sacred Heart School Jesuit Mango Campus Gym. The CYBL’s 2010 tournament will now be called the ML Kwarta Padala Cup.

The ML Kwarta Padala Cup of the CYBL is a tournament featuring Cebu’s top schools playing in three age groups: 16-Under, 13-Under and 10-Under. Some 21 teams have signed up spread across the age groups. Leading the pack in the 16-Under age group is CYBL 2008 champion and 2009 runner-up University of San Carlos (USC) South Campus. They will be challenged by sister school USC North and Sacred Heart School Jesuit (SHSJ). Other teams in the 16-Under age group are Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT), University of San Jose Recoletos USJR)/Ave Maria Sanctuary Park, Springdale, and USC South-B.

The 13-Under age group is divided into two divisions: Division A and the Developmental division. USC North will defend its CYBL 2009 championship and will face stiff opposition from 2009 Milo BEST SBP Cebu champion USC South-A, SHSJ-A and SHSJ-B. The 13-Under Developmental division is composed of USJR/Ave Maria Sanctuary Park, Springdale, Southwestern University and USC South-B. SHSJ will be hard-pressed to defend its 10-Under age group championship. The age group also features USC North, USJR/Ave Maria Sanctuary Park, USC South and Springdale.

“We’re very delighted and excited to have ML Kwarta Padala as our partners. They’ve been a force in the commercial scene for so long, and we’re fortunate that they’ve decided to work with us in the development of youth basketball,” CYBL Tournament Director Rico Navarro said. As part of the MLKP-CYBL partnership, MLKP will donate school equipment to the champions of the different age groups.
