Two nice pre-season tournament game wins were seen for the new look Green Archers. This thread will serve as the talking point of Green Archers basketball for the next three months before the real war starts in July. You may post all game information, analysis, insights, and comments on Green Archers' games in the FilOil and Nike Summer League.

The Green Archers started their FilOil campaign with a 69-53 win against JRU last Sunday and they followed it up with a win against STI-Sta Rosa to the tune of 72-49. Next games for the Archers is on April 25 for the Nike Summer League against Metro Manila Colleges at 10AM in FEU gym while three days after, they'll face San Sebastian Manila at 6PM in the Arena in San Juan.

Looks like Barua is the "real deal". He has bulked up this year.
But last year, Mangahas enjoyed more playing time at the 3-spot (small forward) compared to Barua.

Joe, sorry sa late response. Na-post na yung final score in yesterday's game against SSC-R. I wasn't expecting a blowout game though so nagulat ako nung nalaman ko final score because I wasn't able to watch the game due to work reasons (bad trip talaga ito hehe). I expected that Baste will give a tough fight due to their height inside.

Next games for the Green Archers are as follows:

Nike Summer League: May 3, Saturday, 8:30am, FEU gym versus PCCr
Fil-Oil Invitational: May 5, Monday, 4pm, Arena in San Juan versus NU

SSC actually is one of the dark horses for the upcoming NCAA season. I think they were faring well in the offseason games until they met La Salle so kudos to La Salle, looks like they are on their top gear even if it is just the summer season.

^ DLSU will have around 5 rookies for Season 71 and they're not the hyped variety. We're contenders in the eyes of many simply because we're the defending champions but on paper we're definitely not the top seed. What's assured is we'll play competitively on a game to game basis even against the #1 team like last year. ;)

Sa tancha ko e mga 5th seed siguro kami entering July sa UAAP. I'll rate FEU, UE, UST, and even Ateneo higher than us. Seriously, mas alangan pa ako sa FEU, UE, and UST because these are the normal teams na laging may matatangkad na wingmen and very versatile at that na puede mo silang isaksak sa kahit na anong posisyon depending on the matchups provided by the opposing teams. It will be a tough climb for the Archers again this year in our quest for a back-to-back championship.

Eto ang hindi ko alam how the team manages consistently yung timing when to peak every season. Siguro the team has learned their lesson through the years especially during those bridesmaid finishes in the mid 90's. But I have to admit this is one thing that the Green Archers have mastered from the past seasons up to present.

I noticed in the past years that kahit na 1st round, nageexperiment pa din si Coach regarding the combinations of the team. I guess this is one of the factors kung bakit di napapagod masyado yung players at nabibigyan ng opportunity yung iba in terms of confidence and experience. Pag dulo na ng season, doon niya nilalabas yung mga alas niya at potent combinations.

Agree on this one, so many players have matured and made good because of this. In recent years, TY Tang, Poch Villanueva, Kish Co (especially the last game), Rico Maierhofer (vs Arwind Santos in the Finals), Ferdinand, Bader Malabes (especially on defense), JR Aquino to mention a few.

3rd or 4th year SF, 21 years old, has at least 3 more years of eligibility w/ the Green Archers. His 1st 2 years of play hasn't been very impressive, but if he keeps up this kind of performance up to the regular season, he could be up for a breakout season.

La Salle needs a consistent scorer and leader on the floor. In fact, he is their number 1 scorer. The Archers need Casio in the starting five. It would also be Casio's final year, Bader can take a back seat and wait for his turn next year.

I like Mangahas in the starting SF. Pumaren used him more last season. Barua could come off to relieve him as to balance the scoring.

I mean no disrespect for JVee here but there is a tactical/strategic reason for this. I often think about why coach puts JVee off the bench... seriously -- it doesn't make any sense - your best scorer off the bench??? W_F ... BUT JVee easily plays the 1 or 2 positions. As I've seen in the past years, it's been Franz's ploy to put JVee in where he could be effective or create mismatches. If there is trouble with either position, Franz places him there and seals the gap. If you've noticed JVee is very effective this way. But, ika nga, it really depends on the team we're going up against.

From another angle, JVee provides leadership and stability to the second team. Last year, TY and Cholo provided leadership for the 1st/2nd fives respectively. Rico and Simon can provide leadership in the 1st 5 and JVee for the 2nd team. This clearly shows Franz's trust in JVee's leadership skills. IMHO, leadership is much more needed with the 2nd/3rd stringers.

Though I don't mind who starts, I'd still want JVee to finish the game and take that last shot.

James usual position is the 3 spot and he can create mismatches because of his height 6'4" and athleticism.

di rin siguro. UAAP teams usually have 4 bigs in rotation, and they already have 4 reliable, veteran bigs in Maierhoffer, Walsham, Ferdinand (who I'm expecting to break out this year) and Batricevic, plus, an exciting rookie in former Jrs MVP Villanueva. that's a solid rotation right there!

we'll see about that.* rico is ok, but low post move is not his forte, he uses his athleticism more than anything (more like arwind).* walsham is just a big body who IMHO gets easily intimidated, ferdie, i dont think is quite there yet, Marko ...well...he still has yet to suit up this year so we dont know how he'll complement the others.* Maui i think will play a lot of 3 and 4...but at the end of the day...he's still a rookie.*

i mean i hope they do well, i want them to do well....but i'm just more realistic that we develop the 1,2,3 positions better than the 4 and 5 compared to the blue eagles which can even turn Ford into a monster.

Ang nakikita ko na disadvantage for La Salle is in the point guard spot. Second year Atkins and rookie Revilla. Teams with a more experience point guards may try use this against the Archers. That is why I feel it is important that Casio remains to be a starter to alleviate the inexperience backcourt of La Salle.

La Salle remains solid in the small forwards and at the center spots.

He does not have to start but He will be ( needs to be ) there during the 4th quarter. It does not matter who starts but who finishes. Agree with you on the weakness.

i have no worries with regard to the guard rotation of lasalle. all of them are good ball handlers and can be relied upon to score at will. La is seen by others as someone who does not have an outside shot, that is because he is a pass first PG by instinct but give him space and he will surprise you by shooting in your face. ;)

The point guard isn't a problem for DLSU - Franz can easily rotate 3 people (JVee, Simon, LA) at point as well as have bigger guards (Bader, Hyram) carry the ball down. We could even have a 2 PG setup with Simon/JVee, LA/JVee.

I think it's not a case of lack of talent or height for the Bigs - Maui, Ferdie, JM, Michole, Marko have talent no doubt. It's more a matter of experience. Ferdie has only played 3/4 of the year last year and the rest do not have extensive UAAP minutes. The summer leagues will be a big boost for them in terms of exposure and confidence.

It is correct. The lack of experience. In close games, you will see the difference.
Kaya in some situations, you might see Casio and Malabes at the backcourt.

My pick for La Salle's best offensive five are:
Casio (PG)
Malabes (SG)
Mangahas (SF)
Barua (PF)
Maierhoffer (C)
Small ball, Fast, athletic, excellent perimeter shooting and versatile defenders.

Guys, sure na bang makakapaglaro na si Marko this coming UAAP season? La Salle needs this guy to beef up the center position. Hindi naman pwede kasi na palagi na lang si Rico, lalo na kapag napikon siya. Si Maui naman, bukod sa rookie ay baka more of a shooter siya sa halip na pampatibay ng ilalim. ???

Yes. I noticed that. Pumaren starts Maui at the 4-spot (power forward) but he doesn't play like a power forward. He's a big and versatile guy but from what I observed he is comfortable in the perimeter and not inside the paint.

Kabayang The_Big_Cat, Maui seems to be like Mike Silungan of UP- a 6'4" tall guy who is more of a shooter than a power forward-center guy. Due to his size, Coach Franz may opt to Maui start at the 4 but this kid isn't really meant to be a 4 given the fact that he is more comfortable of staying in the perimeter and doing those jump shots. If that will be the case, then the 4 and 5 spots would still be manned by Rico and Marko. ???

^ I think the 5 will be manned by Ferdie and JWalsh. From what I've seen i think Marko plays 4-5, leaning a bit to the 4. Marko has a nice outside shot as well. Rico plays 4. I'm not sure if Rico would be as effective in 5 because he's more comfortable playing facing the basket. JM could be played as a bit undersized 4, we've seen Franz successfully do this with JR Aquino and Kish Co.

Right now, nilalaro pa ni Franz yung mga plays niya at combinasyon. So, I guess we have to be patient with how Franz plays Maui and all the new guys.

ang baba naman ng iskor, parang pang-halftime ;D kwento naman dyan...


Boss Kid, we played poorly yesterday. Medyo masama start ng set up ng mga half court sets ng mga bata which enabled Adamson to take an early lead. I have to say that we were sloppy all throughout the game. Nadudulas during ball handling down court, which resulting to out of control ball handling and then causing a lot of turnovers later on. I think this is one of the worst games that I have seen the Archers play in years. Hindi na kami nagtaka kung bakit ganyan ang score.

Even sa mga binibigyan namin ng update e ayaw maniwala na yan nga ang score ng game. We had silly mistakes as well taking shots na dapat shoot na pero nilalaro pa kaya ayun, mintis. Adamson finally took advantage of our silly play in the 3rd quarter wherein they made 3 or 4 consecutive fast break shots to pad the lead to 10 points and then we tried to catch up sa huli, the last is Barua's trey with 50 seconds left. Change possessions later on and then we had the last shot kaso Rico made an air ball which finally gave the victory to Adamson.

We were lucky enough to lose by only 3 points kahit na ang sama ng laro ng mga bata. As I've said in AP.com, natatakot ako every time our players slip onto the floor ng FEU gym, because masasama yung bagsak nila pag nadudulas. For example, Rico tried to make an attempt during a fast break na medyo malalim na siya sa ring, he elevated and medyo masama bagsak niya, buti na lang he never attempted anymore baka napasama pa lalo bagsak niya if he did try to attempt that shot. No chance din naman na pumasok since malalim na siya sa ring.

That was the reason why Simon got injured. He slipped during one of those plays while fighting off the screen to receive the ball from the inbounds pass. As of yesterday, bugbog daw sa tuhod yung injury pero no definite time as to when he'll have to be sidelined. Obvious na obvious din yesterday yung kahirapan ng team due to the absence of a true PG when Simon went out in the 2nd quarter. Hyram just had a hard time setting up and he always results to turnover pag siya nagbaba ng bola.

During the stretch na medyo hirap si Simon, it was James who took over bringing down the basketball but it took away his scoring since it was James who was pacing us in the scoring department on the game. LA and Jvee didn't play due to injuries as well.

Casio will surely be a point guard when he joins the PBA in 2010.

You don't want Casio bringing down the ball. It will be a total exhaustion for him plus the fact they play pressure defense all game long. This goes the same for Malabes.

On close games, we may see both Casio and Malabes at the same time.

Yes inexperienced pero I don't think it will be much of a problem. We tried to live and die with a young Ty Tang years back and malamang ganun din ang mangyayari this year with Simon, LA, and Jvee at times manning the PG spot. Puede din si Hyram pero I doubt if he'll have good stretches during the game because for now, I still assess him as hirap playing the PG role. Mas okay pa performance ni James yesterday doing the point forward role.

With the departure of TY & cholo, our backcourt stability is going to be a suspect this year.

And with such predicament, here is where the summer leagues come into great use. These tournaments bring out the kinks and some minor problems that we don't usually see during practices or even practice games with other teams.

Simon maybe out for the remaining games of these tournaments (based on early findings but nothing is final until we know the trues status of his injury) and here is where adjustments have to be carried out.

With a system heavily dependent on a stable backcout, defending the crown is going to be a real big test for us.

So come uaap time... we'll see.

^^ BFB, salamat sa kwento. based on your report, mukhang nag-alay na kayo ng isang masamang laro sa altar ni don anton ;D

anyway, we also had an unbelievably low-scoring game at NSL, against NU. although we won, our final score was a forgettable 54 points, probably even less than that. i recall that ateneo had a number of prolonged stretches wherein we couldn't buy a basket even at close range. you're right about the slippery hardcourt in the FEU gym. madalas ang dulasan sa sahig kasi ubod ng init at alinsangan, lalo na nung peak ng summer.

FGT said it right that the offseason is the right time to analyze and survey the readiness of a UAAP team. however, i feel the supposed rawness of your backcourt is a bit overestimated on offense. the valid concern, i should say, is how DLSU's rookie guards will hold their own against the league's more veteran backcourt combos. pero knowing how well you guys train and prepare for the long haul, the green archers should never be discounted.

Yes. TY t@ng filled quickly the shoes left by Mike Cortez.
But nahirapan si T.Y. sa mas beteranong Dennis Miranda of FEU.
He led FEU to the 2003, 2004 finals, winning the 2003 and also the 2004 after the DLSU disqualification. Miranda outplayed T.Y. in the 2004 finals.
And the versatile Jonas Villanueva in the 2005 Finals.

Kaya medyo suspect ang PG position for this season.

The PG position will definitely be suspect for the Archers this coming season. I know that JV's official position is 1/2 but he will not start on the 1 spot. It will either be Atkins or Revilla on the 1 spot and, sadly, both of them need to mature quick enough or the PG position will become problematic for Coach Franz Pumaren and the rest of the DLSU squad.

However, if ever Coach Franz decides to make JV the starting PG, who can be the potential starting SG? ???

A lot actually. Bader, PJ can play 2 backed up by Hyram, Rejan. Bader may be erratic in the past for his shooting but his defense has improved a lot since he came in. PJ is slowly and surely recovering from the injury last year. Rejan is probably our best 1-1 defender.

^Malabes and Casio are the solid choices for the SG position. After them wala ng iba ka pa pipiliin doon sa bench. I see Casio playing in some situations moving at the point playing alongside Bader at the backcourt.

These two are the best catch-and-shoot players of DLSU and excellent in the pick-en-rolls especially Casio.

We still have roughly 2 months to clean up our mess and hopefully make a valiant effort saving our solid backcourt reputation to the satisfaction of the pundits... afterall, it is expected. We expect this season to be our transition year thus we are truly vulnerable. Eventhough we're the defending champs, and to some it gives the team a certain mystique, we know by now that its weight or value is only good on papers. And with 4 other teams with really good chance of making the final4, it's gonna be tight this season... very very tight.

To those astute with the summer tournaments, they don't expect the teams, especially the real contenders, to show their true potential in these tournaments. While we may see a hint of what they are intending to perfect, it is still not the total package. And for this reason, we don't expect much or criticize to a certain length the mistakes and errors committed by our players. Winning or losing has little bearing to the true intention in joining these tournaments. Good for us if in the end we would be able to defend our Nike and Fil-oil title but if not then congratulations to the new champs. This is somewhat our mentality when it comes to summer tournaments... for what it is worth, we just enjoy the games.

Actually, we're lacking in both ends --- not having yet a solid backcourt and still short on dependable big men. It's quite noticable in these pre-summer tournaments and we know that there's no fast and easy solution to theser problems For sure adjustments are going to be made and some may even play dual roles in a game but these adjustments are mostly case to case basis - adjustment is dependent to the composition of the opposing team. And these initial adjustments are only good up to the 1st round... by the 2nd round (when the other teams noticed or had been familiar with your plays and vice versa), another adjustment has to be made to make the team competitive in the crucial stretch of the uaap season.

There's no intention here of downplaying our chances (futile to do so) *but in the last few years, we've have learned to respect the capacity of the other teams to play well - sometimes very very well - and their pure intention of winning also the uaap plum. We hope to keep pace with the progress of the other teams and maybe, even slowly, we're going to give a decent try come uaap season.

Moving the Athletes Special Entrance Exam to an earlier date has been suggested (feb) to the Admins as early as 2 years ago but up to now it has not been changed. We see athletes take their ASEE by April.

We're still seeking for changes to be made as it is futile to see aspiring players suit for the Green Archers during the summer leagues then one day they are gone. For quite some time now, we've been going through such illogical motion but it must stop now. Such practice maybe okay a few years ago but with fast-pace recruitment style now, it is no longer useful & helpful to our cause.

Hopefully by next year, maybe it's time to bang up the gongs and make some noises now for us to be heard.

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

As for jeric going to ust....

The coaching staff focused their attention more to LA. Not that jeric is less talented than LA but in the eyes of the coaching staff but they see LA as more suited to the system.

When it was apparent (as no feelers being sent to him) that he would have no (or little) chance making the team, it is only fair for him to try his luck somewhere else.

If it's his dream of playing immediately in the uaap, it is not for us to kill such dream and keep him waiting & waiting in the background for quite a time... we're happy to see him fulfill his dream even if it means somewhere else.

* added inside story --- When Jeric asked for his release and called a coaching staff, franz & his staff were in Malaysia. They could have waited for the facilitation of his release until they come back but instead immediately called La Salle to issue his release.

We wish jeric goodluck with the tigers! Definitely, he's with a good team with a good basketball program... wag nya lang sanang masyadong galingang pag La Salle ang kalaban. ;D

He could have been snug fit with the Tiger wing men who love to run. It could have been a very hard decision for DLSU. Walang itulak-kabigin. So far things are working out well for these two.

again all these talks about picking LA over Jeric is just crazy.* again, LA didnt get picked over Jeric and vice versa.* if Jeric stayed, he wouldve had his slot in DLSU, as we dont even have 15/16 players to complete the lineup yet.*

As early as last year pa nililigawan itong si Revilla.
If Jeric would have stayed he would be given a spot but the minutes, it is a big "?".

As a hotshot point guard from UAAP juniors champion, I don't think he would like to be the second fiddle to a fellow rookie that is a not homegrown.

Let's hope for the better for these two kids.


so what if since last year pa nililigawan si LA? *since last year rin naman nagprapractice si Jeric with us. *

yes there is no guarantee of minutes....not even to Jeric, not even to LA. *its unfortunate you think that just because you are came from Zobel or Greenhills that you should have an advantage over someone (who also came from a La Salle prior moving to SBC). *what ever happened to equal chances?

My personal assessment is that Jeric has the better PG skills and team accomplishment than LA, although LA seems to have the backing from the people involved in the DLSU basketball program. Ganun talaga ang buhay at wala na magagawa dun.

Kaya Jeric galingan mo to play point for UST to prove your critics wrong.

I don't think this is true. Both kids were given chances to strut their stuff and compete to prove their worth as team A material. It's like your tone is also questioning the coaching staff's prerogative in selecting those who will get the spots.

In the Nike summer league, the maximum number of players allowed is 20. If equal chances, Jeric should have been included in the line-up but he was not. We didnt even maximize the roster. Unfair for him not to be included and unfair for those players who will be dropped later on due to dismal performance in the entrance exam.

Let's just put it this way. If you've been given a chance to join the Green Archers in the summer leagues then the team is interested and you have a pretty good chance of making the team. If not then it means you simply did not make the cut.

Harsh it maybe but that's the reality of DLSU Basketball.



We didnt even maximize the roster. Unfair for him not to be included and unfair for those players who will be dropped later on due to dismal performance in the entrance exam.


You already got your answer.

For the reason that we don't want to give empty promises to these aspiring players, we only alllow those players that the team is really interested to join the summer leagues. What's the use of maximizing the roster when you know that some of the players are bound not to make the cut?

Unfair? From the very beginning, the aspiring players were informed that they need to pass the April entrance exam, wait for the result and even wait a little longer if reconsideration is needed. And even when they play for La Salle during the summer leagues, they knew that their chance is dependent on the result of their entrance exam. If the reconsideration appeal failed then it simply means that's the end of their journey in trying to become a Green Archer.

It is only going to be unfair if La Salle would try to hold back the players leaving him with no more options. Facts would prove that some of those who joined the Green Archers during the summer leagues and failed to become as a Green Archer immediately found a new home somewhere else.

PJ had an basketball related accident 2-3 months before the season started last year that took him out of action. The coaches decided to take it easy on him.

The Archers played well in the first quarter. Shooting percentage was high and extra passes were dished out. The extra passes resulted in easy layups which accounted for the very high percentage from the field. In the middle of the first quarter, coach Franz substituted his entire first five and the second five delivered as well. First quarter ended with the Archers up, 29-18.

The second quarter was a different matter. The Archers suddenly relaxed, much like what happened to the Celtics in the 4th quarter of game 2 in the current NBA championship. The lead was cut down to 1 at 41-40 before Maui Villanueva scored on a follow up to peg the halftime score at 43-40, in favor of La Salle.

As expected, Coach Franz gave the guys a severe tongue lashing at halftime. This woke the guys up and they responded. The first quarter effort came back and the Archers took control once again, going up 68-59 at the end of the third quarter.

Mapua suddenly couldn't buy a basket in the fourth quarter as the Archer's defense stepped up. Mapua was still scoreless with already half of the 4th quarter gone while the Archers were scoring at will. The game ended in a blowout, 91-66.

Jayvee Casio and Bader Malabes still didn't play for the Archers.

Mapua's three point shooting was impressive in the first three quarters and this kept them in the game. Ian Mazo, Jonathan Banal, Kevin De la Pena and even Jason Pascual had at least 2 each. Allan Mangahas had a so-so game. Mapua also missed the services of Coach Leo Isaac.

For us, I guess we have to adjust with the fact that we only have 1 active point guard in the roster for the SBC game. Hyram and Rejan will most probably converted to play the Point. James could also play point but with the SBC height, he's much more needed on the front.

I look forward to this game with San Beda, 1) we're playing a good solid team, 2) our rookies will be given a baptism of fire of sorts (LA, Maui, Hyram, -- sama mo na si Marko kung fit na siya -- sayang wala si MJ) 3) looking forward to the adjustments made by the coach.

Congratulations to San Beda for advancing to the FilOil preseason tournament finals. Our injury problems have gotten worse after LA Revilla suffered another injury (in which I hope is not that serious) which converted Hyram and Rejan as PG's. Peejay Barua had a superb game to lead the Archers but it just wasn't enough to lead the green and white to a victory. Nevertheless, we are still proud that despite the depleted lineup, the Archers fought all the way to make life a little bit hard for the Red Lions.

It's now time for our players to have some rest and focus on healing and rehabilitating those injuries.

It's always a pleasure playing against an excellent team like San Beda. We're not going to make any excuses as both teams played very well but San Beda was indeed the better team today and they had the bigger more enthusiastic crowd (oh well, the green fair-weathered fans did not show up as expected).

Just like yesterday's game against ateneo, we did try to make a comeback but the Red Lions were confident and stable enough to repel all the threats coming our way. And with the way they are playing, they are just about to peak come NCAA time and a 3-peat is the likely scenario.

As for us, it's back to the drawing board again and hopefully our players are going to get healthy come uaap season.

Jvee still has his injury sa wrist. It seems that they are still checking if surgery is needed (sana wala and therapy lang). Atkins has pulled hamstring muscle but it seems rest lang din naman kailangan. Bader has viral infection (rest lang din ito) and si LA naman, nabugbug ang thigh, so rest lang din naman. So far, si Jvee yung pinaka-critical because there's the possibility of him not being able to play season 71 depende sa magiging healing measure nung injury niya.

Marko is 100% na but kailangan i-pacing before he gets back his regular playing minutes in the roster. For now, ubos ang backcourt namin but hopefully they can all recover come UAAP time, which is three weeks from now.

As bfb said, his injury looks to be completely healed, but he's not yet in game shape after that long layoff. Hopefully he'll be able to get more conditioning in the short time left before the UAAP. With all the injuries, the team will not be able to get into fighting shape all at the same time. The uncertainty about JV's being able to play this season is bound to affect our chances of defending the crown. Talk about starting the season with a handicap.

Rico M. is ready for the pros. And coach Franz did a masterful job in getting the most out of his depleted lineup.
I'm sure all 7 teams want him to apply for the draft THIS year.

is Liwag (from LSGH) still in La Salle's team B? if yes, he may be the 16th man for the Archers specially now that Atkins, Revilla and Casio are injured.

Based on reports both Bader and LA played, with LA topscoring with 19 pts. Simon and JVee are still in sickbay.
