San Mig, Harbour clash in opener

AN early collision between top contenders San Mig Coffee and Harbour Centre banners the exciting doubleheader ushering in the 2008 Philippine Basketball League Unity Cup which unfurls Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

The Batang Pier, reigning Unity Cup champion and gunning for a fifth straight title, clash with the Coffee Kings shortly after the curtain-raiser featuring Burger King and comebacking Noosa Shoes (formerly Blu Detergent).

Harbour and San Mig clashed in the semifinals of the last V-Go Extreme Energy Drink Cup, with the Batang Pier surviving the Coffee Kings in their best-of-three series that went the full route.

The Batang Pier went on to beat Hapee Toothpaste in the finals to win their fourth straight championship.

The Coffee Kings, Batang Pier and the Hapee Tootpaste Complete Protectors are among the teams fancied to win the league’s season-ending tournament.

Coaches of both San Mig Coffee and Harbour Centre downplayed their chances in yesterday’s PSA Forum at the Shakey’s UN Avenue branch along with their counterparts from the rest of the competing teams represented by Ariel Vanguardia (Toyota Otis), Allan Gregorio and Jerry Codiñera (Burger King), team manager Pat Aquino (Noosa Shoes), Lawrence Chongson (Bacchus) and Gian Carlo Tan (Pharex).

"We’ll take it one game at a time. We made it to the semis last conference so we’re looking first to surpass that achievement and then we’ll take it from there," said San Mig Coffee assistant coach Glenn Capacio, representing head coach Koy Banal.

"They’re always taking about Harbour being the favorite, but the league is not just about us," said Batang Pier mentor Jorge Gallent. "Marami rin namang teams capable of winning the title, like Hapee Toothpaste, San Mig, Toyota and yes, even Bacchus."

Also appearing in the forum sponsored by Shakey’s and Pagcor were Harbour Centre stalwarts TY Tang and Jason Castro. Only Hapee Toothpaste, now handled by Louie Alas, failed to send a representative to the public sports program.

PBL superstars such as JV Casio, Rico Maierhoffer, Dilan Ababou, Chester Taylor, RJ Jasul, Sam Ekwe, Pong Escobal, Ogie Menor and Kelvin de la Pena have all been pulled out from their respective mother teams to play for their schools in the coming collegiate season.

But they would be hardly missed with the return of members of the RP men’s team to their respective teams and the emergence of several new faces and comebacking players.

"We’ve lost a couple of players in (JV) Casio and RJ Jasul, but Patrick Cabahug and Eugene Tan will be back with the team," said Vanguardia. "Toyota has been consistent being in the semis, kaya gusto naman namin ngayon makapasok sa finals."

Burger King Whoppers’ Allan Gregorio admitted losing the rights to Jervy Cruz to Hapee Toothpaste was a big blow to the franchise’s title bid, but is nonetheless proud to have pulled off a coup by signing former PBA greats Jerry Codinera and Vergel Meneses as assistant coaches.

"Of course, Jervy Cruz is Jervy Cruz. Pero everything is water under the bridge and we’re ready to move on. Ang maganda lang sa team ngayon, we’re able to sign up Jerry (Codinera) and Vergel (Meneses) as assistant coaches, and alam naman natin ’yung kind ng wisdom they can give to the team," said Allan, one-third of the three Gregorio siblings involved in basketball.

San Mig-Harbour showdown kicks off Unity Cup

An early clash of titans in San Mig Coffee and Harbour Centre kicks off the 2008 Philippine Basketball League (PBL) Unity Cup on Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

The Batang Pier, reigning Unity Cup champion and gunning for a fifth straight title, clash with the Coffee Kings in the main game at 4 p.m., shortly after the curtain-raiser featuring Burger King and comebacking Noosa Shoes (formerly Blu Detergent).

Harbour and San Mig faced each other in the semifinals of the last V-Go Extreme Energy Drink Cup, with the Batang Pier surviving the Coffee Kings in their best-of-three series that went the full route. The team went on to beat Hapee Toothpaste in the finals to win its fourth straight championship.

(Burger King), team manager Pat Aquino (Noosa Shoes), Lawrence Chongson (Bacchus) and Gian Carlo Tan (Pharex)

But their absence will be negated by the return of members of the RP men’s team to their particular ballclubs, and the emergence of several new faces and comebacking players.

That meant the likes of national players Jason Castro, Jonathan Fernandez, Jeff Chan, Beau Belga, Chad Alonzo, Allan Salangsang, Patrick Cabahug and Boyet Bautista as well as newcomers Mark Balneg, Mark Moreno, JP Alcaraz, Joel Solis, Leomer Losentes, Cebu standout Rino Berame and ex-pros Francis Barcellano, Chris Baluyot and Ronnie Bughao will be strutting their stuff in the league this conference.

“We’ve lost a couple of players in (JV) Casio and RJ Jasul, but Patrick Cabahug and Eugene Tan will be back with the team,” said Vanguardia. “Toyota has been

After getting their ears wet last conference, Tan said the Pharex team “improved a little, but the other teams also improved.”

Harbour Centre’s all harnessed for ‘Unity’
*
Harbour Centre has no less than four aces up its sleeves when it guns for a record fifth straight Philippine Basketball League (PBL) title.

With the deadly duo of TY Tang and Solomon Mercado already onboard, two more veteran stalwarts in the persons of two-time league Most Valuable Player (MVP) Jason Castro and Jonathan Fernandez are bound to join the Batang Pier roster, easily making the team’s backcourt rotation the most dreaded in the season-ending Unity Cup that fires off this Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

Castro and Fernandez, key players when Harbour Centre won the championship of the same conference a year ago, were on loaned with the Philippine men’s basketball team at a time the Batang Pier pulled off the latest in their string of four PBL title rings.

In their absence, Tang and Mercado rose to the occasion, leading the team to an inspiring series win Harbour Centre capped by miraculously rallying from a 19-point deficit in the decisive Game Three of the V-Go Extreme Cup Finals and beat hard-luck Hapee Toothpaste in overtime.

The team could just get even better with two of its regular starters back in the fold.

“It’s a case of four heads are better than two,” said Harbour Centre owner Mikee Romero. “But seriously speaking, I think with the return of Jason and Jonathan, our backcourt has become more solid and steadier.”

Four others from the national team are actually set to play for the Batang Pier this conference—old-timers and Harbour’s long-time brute forces Beau Belga and Chad Alonzo, together with new acquisitions Jeff Chan and Boyet Bautista.

With a lineup already filled with league stars in the mold of Dylan Ababou, Chester Taylor, Edwin Asoro, Al Vergara and Jerwin Gaco, keeping the players happy is the single daunting task that makes coach Jorge Gallent’s job a difficult one. The other members of the team are Gilbert Malabanan and Allan Gamboa.

Team manager Erick Arejola is convinced Gallent can well take care of the problem.

“How to jell the team is really our concern right now. We’ve just started practicing beginning this month, so kumbaga sa basketball, medyo hindi pa nagkaka-amuyan,” said the well-known son of equally popular pelotari George Gallent.

“So we had our team-building last week for the players to be at ease with each other and, at the same time, know exactly what their roles will be with the team.”

Tang, adjudged Finals MVP last conference, agreed with his mentor, stressing it’s a matter of the players understanding their roles for them to be in the same page with the rest of the team.

“I think the bottom line is we’re all committed to winning. So you have to identify what roles you will have to play for the team. Kung rebounder ka, your job is more on rebounding. Kung designated ball handler ka, then that’s what you do,” said the former La Salle point guard, playing in his final season in the amateurs.

To the San Mig Coffee Kings belong the distinction of first testing the mettle of the newly reinforced Batang Pier. The two title contending teams clash early on in the 4 p.m. main game of this weekend’s double-header.

No way to go but up for Burger King five (http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php?issue=2008-02-22&sec=7&aid=50236)

With an intact roster, Burger King is eyeing no less than a semifinal stint in the PBL Unity Cup that fires off tomorrow at The San Juan Arena.
* *
The team formerly known as Mail and More has retained the same core that reached the quarterfinals of the V-Go Extreme Energy Drink Cup last conference, the main reason why coach Allan Gregorio is optimistic about the Whoppers’ chances of making it to the semifinals this time.
* *
“The team is intact, so there’s no reason why we can’t improve on our quarterfinal finish the last time,” said Gregorio when the entire Burger King squad was formally presented yesterday.
* *
“The chemistry is there so we just have to improve it further.”
* *
University of the East top gunner Marcy Arellano will again lead the Whoppers’ campaign, with solid back up to be provided by ex-PBA player Mike Bravo, Nestor David, Khiel Misa, Kelvin Gregorio, Lawrence Bonus, Jason Ballesteros and Mark Canlas.
* *
Also to reinforce the Whoppers are former pros Chris Baluyot, Abby Santos and Francis Barcellano while Nicko Popus is the team’s new acquisition during the off-season.
* *
Gregorio said the team could have become even more solid at the frontcourt had it acquired reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player (MVP) Jervy Cruz, now with Hapee Toothpaste.
* *
“Jervy Cruz is Jervy Cruz.* * * * *But we already moved on, reviewed our roster without him and come up with the best possible lineup,” said Gregorio, brother of Purefoods mentor Ryan and BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP) executive director Patrick.
* *
Team officials said the change in corporate name from Mail And More to Burger King is part of the company’s strategy in enhancing its image among high school and college students.
* *
“Since our major stakeholders are into basketball, we decided to reposition our marketing strategy, the reason why we are in the PBL right now. We at Burger King, and the PBL share a common vision which is to help the sport grow further and also help nurture the talents of these young men,” said Burger King President Raul Nazareno.
* *
He said among the major stakeholders of the company are telecommunications tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan and his top lieutenant Ricky Vargas, Bert Lina and Lito Alvarez of Lina Group of Companies.
* *
“They are very supportive to us, even our mother company in the US is also backing us,” said Nazareno.
* *
“I also believe that the strong commitment of our players will make us a force to reckon with in the league in the future.”
* *
Burger King, which lost to Toyota Otis in the quarterfinal series of the last conference, battles comebacking Noosa Shoes in the opener tomorrow at 2 p.m.*

Not too long ago, reporters take the effort and would exercise enough diligence to include in their reports the complete line-up of players per team.

What's ironic, if you come to think about it, trading and player movements were very minimal then...then would be at least MICAA days. Yet, every write up on opening day will have a supplementary report on the composition of each team.

Ngayon na fairly common ang player movements, saka naman walang nakalagay na line-up.

Parang hindi umuusad ang reporting kasabay sa pagtakbo ng panahon. :-[ :'(

Games Today
(The Arena, San Juan)
2 p.m. – Burger King vs Noosa Shoes
4 p.m. – Harbour Centre vs San Mig Coffee

The 2008 PBL Unity Cup, considered as the toughest tournament of the league, starts today with Hapee Toothpaste and six other teams, including comebacking Noosa Shoes, all focused on one mission: Stop Harbour Centre at all cost.
* *
With the return of its marquee players who were loaned to the Philippine team in the last conference, Harbour Centre is heavily favored to win its fifth straight championship owing to its formidable line-up.
* *
Despite the vagaries of having a star-studded cast, Harbour Centre owner Mikee Romero believes coach Jorge Gallent is very capable of combining the team’s youthful promise and exuberance with its vast championship experience.
* *
“Having won a record four championships gave us the feeling of security in terms of sharing one’s responsibility,” said Romero. “The players know their respective roles and they can’t veer away from that.”

First to test Harbour Centre’s mettle in the season-ending conference are the San Mig Coffee Kings who are out to exact revenge from the very same that ousted them from the semis of the last conference.
* *
The Coffee Kings, who started practicing since January in the hope of ending a two-year title drought, collide with the Batang Pier at 4 p.m. at The Arena in San Juan.
* *
Clashing in the opening game at 2 p.m. are Noosa Shoes (formerly Blue Detergent) and Burger King (formerly Mail And More).
* *
The Dioceldo Sy-owned Noosa squad may not have star players in its fold right now but coach Leo Isaac and team manager Pat Aquino are convinced that their players’ great working ethic and resolve will be the team’s biggest weapon.

“Even though we don’t have big stars yet in the team, we intend to make one and hopefully, we can challenge the league’s giants,” said Sy, who served as the league chairman for three consecutive years before his company took a leave of absence two years ago.
* *
Hapee Toothpaste, beaten by Harbour Centre twice in the finals, including the V-Go Extreme Energy Cup last December, won’t see action until Tuesday —same thing for Toyota Otis, Pharex and Bacchu Energy Drink.
* *
The Philippine Youth, which is gearing up for two major international tournaments this year, will be playing as a guest team. It will see action beginning on Saturday next week against Burger King.
* *
Burger King, meantime, will be parading practically the same team that landed in the quarterfinals last conference.

San Mig tests Harbour in early battle of favorites (http://www.malaya.com.ph/feb23/spor1.htm)
SATURDAY |FEBRUARY 23, 2008
www.malaya.com.ph

SAN Mig Coffee tests Harbour Centre and its returning stars today when the 2008 PBL Lipovitan Amino Sports Cup, considered as the league’s toughest tournament, gets going today with a pair of tough matches at The Arena in San Juan.

The Harbour-San Mig Coffee match is set at 4 p.m., to be preceded by the 2 o’clock match between Burger King (formerly Mail And More) and comebacking Noosa Shoes.

Hapee Toothpaste, the losing finalist in the last conference, and six other teams, including Noosa Shoes, are all focused on one mission–stopping Harbour Centre at all cost.

With its marquee players back in the team after their Philippine team stint in the last Southeast Asian Games, Harbour Centre is heavily favored to win its fifth straight championship.

Harbour Centre owner Mikee Romero believes coach Jorge Gallent is capable of combining the team’s youthful promise and exuberance with its vast championship experience.

"Having won a record four championships gave us the feeling of security in terms of sharing one’s responsibility," said Romero. "The players know their respective roles and they can’t veer away from that."

The Coffee Kings are out to exact revenge from the very same team that ousted in the semis of the last conference. They have started practicing for that mission, and their desire to end a two-year title drought, since last month.

The Dioceldo Sy-owned Noosa squad may not have stars in its fold but coach Leo Isaac and team manager Pat Aquino are convinced their players’ work ethic and resolve will be the team’s biggest weapon.

"Even though we don’t have big stars yet in the team, we intend to produce one, and hopefully we can challenge the league’s giants," said Sy, who served as league chairman for three years before his company took a leave of absence two years ago.

Hapee Toothpaste, beaten by Harbour Centre twice in the finals, including the V-Go Extreme Energy Cup last December, won’t see action until Tuesday along with Toyota Otis, Pharex and Bacchu Energy Drink.

The Philippine Youth, which is gearing up for two major international tournaments this year, will play as a guest team. It will see action Saturday next week against Burger King.

Burger King will parade practically the same team that landed in the quarterfinals last conference.

Veteran Marcy Arellano and former pros Mike Bravo, Chris Baluyot and Abby Santos will lead Burger King which is hoping to land in the semis this time.

Back to display their skills anew with Harbour Centre are back-to-back MVP winner Jason Castro, shooter Jonathan Fernandez, center Beau Belga and defense specialist Chad Alonzo.

The team also has new recruits in Boyet Fernandez and Jeff Chan who also played for the RP team in the Thailand SEA Games.

The return of Castro and Fernandez and the acquisition of the wily Bautista have added teeth to Harbour’s already formidable backcourt crew. The team also boasts of top guards in Ty Tang, Al Vergara and Fil-Am Solomon Mercado, aside from their exciting frontcourt combo of Jerwin Gaco, Chester Taylor and Dylan Ababou.

San Mig coach Koy Banal will again lean on the ever-reliable Bonbon Custodio, promising Glenn Bolocon, Neil Raneses, Jerby del Rosario and Ateneo’s Ford Arao.
