The Freeman

The MLSDF selection opened its back-to-back title campaign on a stellar note, carving out a 68-59 victory in come-from-behind fashion over the Consolacion National High School (CNHS) Black Shama at the start of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

Employing tough defense, host Black Shama of coach Dennis Damalerio scored the game’s first six points and used it as a leverage to dictate the tempo of the match from that point on. Black Shama was ahead by eight at halftime, 30-22, and kept a three-point edge, 50-47, going into the final quarter.

However, the Black Shama mainstays suffered a monumental collapse on both ends of the court in the final three-minute mark of the contest, enabling the MLSDF stalwarts to stage a great escape by hitting bigtime shots and crucial fastbreak plays when it mattered most.

A total of 14 teams halved into two groups of seven are taking part in the three-month tilt organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation though the efforts of its executive director Eddie B. Ybañez.

MLSDF and CNHS Black Shama are under Bracket A together with the Salazar Colleges of Science and Institute of Technology (SCSIT) Baby Skyblazers, Philweb, Athletes for Christ through Excellent Service (ACES), and Southwestern University (SWU) Baby Cobras.

Pooled in Bracket B are the 5th Avenue Telecom, RemEMBER, Jeff Pharma, University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers, Mabolo Christian Academy, Ave Maria Sanctuary Park, and Mandaue City Stallions.

The champion will receive P5,000, while the second and third placers will get P3,000 and P2,000, respectively. The prizes will be donated to charitable institutions of the winners’ choice.

The Athletes for Christ through Excellent Service (ACES) bucked off a sluggish start to turn back Philweb, 83-59, at the resumption of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

Philweb went off to a 4-0 start, but the ACES were consistently chasing in to eventually forge a 17-all deadlock with three minutes left in the first period.

As Philweb remained silent on the offensive end, the ACES made a 6-0 bang to close the opening session with a 23-17 advantage.

It was an all-ACES show from thereon, closing the first half with a 15-point edge, 43-28.

Philweb trimmed the deficit down to a dozen points, 48-60, but the ACES unleashed a decisive fouth-quarter attack, 23-11, to come up with a 24-point demolition.

The champion in the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF)-organized tournament will receive P5,000, while the second and third placers will get P3,000 and P2,000, respectively. Since it is an event for a cause, the prizes will be donated to charitable institutions of the winners’ choice.

Mabolo Christian Academy joined MLSDF, RemEmber and ACES in the winners’ circle after it drubbed the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers, 69-60, in the continuing action of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

The MCA cagers were smoking right after the opening tip-off to take a 15-point advantage, 26-11, at the end of the first period.

The Baby Panthers of coach Camilo Go, however, staged a furious rally in the second quarter to whittle the deficit down to just a matchstick at the bend, 33-34.

Armed with their steady offense, the Baby Panthers eventually grabbed the driver’s seat, 48-47, entering the final 10 minutes of the contest.

It was a tight-rope match the rest of the way, with the Baby Panthers still enjoying a hairline edge, 60-59 at the final five-minute mark of the contest.

But in a sudden twist of event, USPF went scoreless from there, enabling the MCA mainstays to close the game with a fluid 10-0 blast to ice the win.

The champion in the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation-organized tilt will receive P5,000, while the second and third placers will get P3,000 and P2,000, respectively. Being an event for a cause, the prizes will be donated to charitable institutions of the winners’ choice.

The 5th Avenue Telecom of coach Marvin Felicis stepped up bigtime when the game was on the line to upset the Mandaue City Stallions, 68-62, in the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

It was a sorry loss for the Stallions of coach Eugenio Ruiz who were leading most of the way until 5th Avenue Telecom turned the tables on them in the final two-minute mark of the contest.

The Stallions enjoyed an early 20-13 lead and close the first half with an eight-point advantage, 36-28. The last time there were on top was at 61-60 as Talingting sank a bone-cracking triple - his lone output in the game - to change the complexion of the match in favor of 5th Avenue Telecom.

5th Avenue Telecom never looked back from there, sealing its come-from-behind triumph with a blistering 8-0 run.

The Ave Maria Sanctuary Park got off to a slow start but went on a scoring rampage starting in the second period to shackle Liloan selection, 88-72, in the resumption of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

The Ave Maria mainstays trailed by a hairline after the first period, 17-18, but immediately found their offensive rhythm in the second canto to grab the lead at halftime, 38-34, for good.

Ave Maria, manned by upcoming players from the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R), stayed hot after the short break to pad its lead to 11 points, 63-52, heating into the payoff period.

Ave Maria then closed the match with a 25-20 bang to ice the 16-point romp and send strong statement to their rivals of their serious title campaign in the three-month tilt organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF) through the efforts of its executive director Eddie B. Ybañez.

Aside from trophies and medals to the outstanding individual achievers, the champion will receive P5,000, while the second and third placers will get P3,000 and P2,000, respectively. But since it is a basketball event for a cause as agreed upon by all the participating teams, the prizes will be donated to charitable institutions of the winners’ choice.

The MLSDF selection notched its second straight win in as many games at the expense of Philweb, 62-55, in the resumption of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

The MLSDF mainstays waxed hot right after the opening tip-off, scoring the game’s first 10 points en route to a 20-11 lead after the first period.

Philweb, manned by aspiring hoopsters from the University of San Carlos, pulled within three at halftime, 28-31, but the MLSDF stars executed their gameplan with finesse in the third canto to mount a baker’s dozen lead, 50-37, going into the final 10 minutes of the contest.

Again, the hard-fighting Philweb staged a daring rally to knot the count at 55-all in the final two-minute mark but Oteda came to the rescue by drilling in back-to-back field goals to give MLSDF a 56-52 breather. Curiously, those were Oteda’s only points of the game.

The champion in the tournament organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation through the efforts of its dynamic executive director Eddie B. Ybañez will receive P5,000, while the second and third placers will take home P3,000 and P2,000.

The Mabolo Christian Academy crushed Liloan selection, 71-56, for its second straight win in as many games in the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

The MCA chargers did not give host Liloan any breathing space after jumping off to a fying 20-9 start.

The lead grew to 15 points at halftime, 37-24, and by the end of the third quarter, MCA further ripped the game apart, 55-38.

In the other games, the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers and Consolacion National High School (CNHS) Black Shama preyed on separate foes for their first win in the tournament organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF) through the initiative of its executive director Eddie B. Ybañez.

USPF streaked past Jeff’s Pharmadent, 55-50, while Black Shama of coach Dennis Damalerio banked on the game-long brilliance of Lemuel Malagar to stun the Athletes for Christ through Excellent Service (ACES), 73-65.

The Black Panthers trailed by seven at the end of the first period, 6-9, but bounced back with finesse in the succeeding period to wrest the driver’s seat at halftime, 24-23, for good.

Malagar, on the other hand, pumped in nine straight points of his season-high 29 markers to shatter a 60-all standoff and vault Black Shama to triumph.

CEBU - The 5th Avenue Telecoms let loose a powerful endgame punch to clobber the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers, 88-71, in the resumption of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

The Telecoms of coach Marvin Felicis actually kicked off their offensive onslaught in the second canto where they shattered a 17-all standoff to storm the first half with a 39-30 advantage.

The Baby Panthers pulled within, 52-58, but the Telecoms staged a sizzling 30-19 rally in the windup to come up with a 17-point romp and stay unbeaten after two games in the two-month tilt organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF) through the efforts of its executive director and multi-titled coach Eddie B. Ybañez.

In the other game, Philweb overcame a spirited resistance by the University of the Visayas (UV)-Mandaue to eke out a hard-earned 73-70 victory.

Philweb enjoyed a big 40-29 lead at the bend, but UV-Mandaue, behind the efforts of Jeremy Espina, fought back with finesse to erase the deficit and even grab the upperhand, 69-68, with 1:28 left to play. Espina finished with a tournament-high 35 points.

In the ensuing sequence, Labata hit a crucial 3-pointer to put back Philweb in front, 71-69. UV-Mandaue threatened one more time, 70-71, but Te calmly sank a pair of free throws with 12 ticks left before the final buzzer to ice Philweb’s triumph.

UV-Mandaue had a chance to forge an overtime, but flubbed two attempts from beyond the arc as the gameclock expired. —EBV (THE FREEMAN)

Ave Maria Sanctuary Park and Mabolo Christian Academy coasted to their second straight victory in the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

Ave Maria SP of coach Marlon Piodo used a furious third-quarter attack to blow off the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers, 89-58, while Mabolo CA was made to work extra hard before fending off the gritty RemEmber side, 85-81.

Leading by nine points at the bend, 37-28, Ave Maria staged a crippling 29-12 rally in the third period to suddenly break the game wide open, 66-40. That dampened the Baby Panthers’ spirits the rest of the way.

In the other game, Mabolo CA turned to a spirited rally in the second canto to break an 18-all standoff and take a seven-point headway, 46-39, at halftime. Mabolo padded its lead to 10 points, 65-55, keeping RemEmber of Concolacion Vice Mayor Ember V. Alinsug and Poblacion Oriental barangay councilor Paul Alelu Q. Flores at bay from there onwards.

Team Remember dealt Ave Maria Sanctuary Park its first loss but had to pass through the wringer before pulling off an 82-81 squeaker in the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

Ave Maria was leading almost the entire game including at 67-58 after three quarters, but Remember of Consolacion Vice Mayor Ember V. Alinsug and Poblacion Oriental barangay councilor Paul Alelu Q. Flores crept back with savvy to forge an 80-all deadlock with 32 seconds left to play.

In the ensuing sequence, Abing was fouled but could only make one out of two free throws to put Ave Maria of coach Marlon Piodo back on top, 81-80.

Again, Remember equalized the count at 81-all on Somosot’s free throw with 23 ticks left before the final buzzer.

Ave Maria could have snatched the win, but failed to make one good play in its final possession. Ermac only split his charities but it was more than enough to vault Remember to victory with four seconds to go in the contest.

Remember, thus, joined its victim at second place in the overall standings with identical 2-1 win-loss records in the two-month tilt organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF) through the efforts of its executive director Eddie B. Ybañez.

Ave Maria Sanctuary Park went strong at the endgame to walk away with a 68-61 victory over Jeff Pharma in the continuing action of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

Ave Maria of coach Marlon Piodo, a former pro who first shot to fame when he bagged the MVP award in the 1998 CAAA season while playing for the USJ-R Jaguars, took an early 20-17 lead, but Jeff Pharma rallied back in the second period to grab the upperhand at halftime, 33-31.

Jeff Pharma, manned by players from the University of San Carlos (USC), maintained a slim 51-50 lead after three quarters but lost its steam in the crucial moments of the game.

Ave Maria capitalized on the opportunity to close the contest with an 18-10 bang for the kill.

Thus, Ave Maria moved to solo second place with a 2-1 win-loss record in the two-month tilt organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF) through the efforts of its executive director and multi-titled coach Eddie B. Ybañez.

USPF Under-21 sneaks in with 1-point win
www.sunstar.com.ph

THE UNIVERSITY of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Under-21 squad survived a thrilling game to beat the University of San Jose-Recoletos-Ave Maria Sanctuary Park, 73-72, in the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League held at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

Ironically, it was former USJ-R Baby Jaguar Yves Oliver Unabia who sank the pressure-packed free throws that saved USPF under trainees from a crushing defeat.

With USJ-R under-trainees leading, 71-72, with only a few ticks left in the game, Unabia, frustrated his former teammates by showing his nerves of steel to sink the game winning free throws.

USJ-R/AMSP had the chance to steal the win but USPF put up a good defensive stop forcing JR Abing to miss his final attempt.

USPF now tied with USJ-R with 3-2 win in Bracket B.

In the other game, the Athletes for Christ through Excellent Service (ACES) smothered the University of the Visayas (UV)-Mandaue Academy, 85-68. (RCM)

CEBU - The Consolacion National High School (CNHS) Black Shama completed a two-game sweep of MLSDF selection via a 57-56 squeaker to march into the semifinal round of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the Consolacion Sports Complex.

The CNHS Black Shama will challenge next eary qualifier Team RemEMBER of Consolacion Vice Mayor Ember V. Alinsug and team manager Paul Alelu Q. Flores, with the winner advancing into the championship of the three-month tilt organized by M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation executive director and multi-titled coach Eddie B. Ybañez.

It was a heart-breaking setback for Bracket B topnotcher MLSDF cagers as they got off to a sizzling 12-4 start.

Black Shama, however, fought back with savvy in the next two quarters to wrest the driver’s seat, 44-43, entering the final quarter.

The MLSDF selection was ahead for the last time at 56-55 with 32 seconds left. It could have increased its lead but Otida missed a crucial fastbreak play.

In the ensuing sequence, Lemuel Malagar converted a difficult layup to push CNHS back on top, 57-56, with six seconds left to play. That turned out to be the game-clincher for Black Shama as MLSDF couldn’t set up one good offense as the gameclock expired.

Malagar finished with nine points, but it was J. Rio who topscored for Black Shama with a game-high 25 points.

SCSIT outguns RemEMBER to rule 6th M. Lhuillier Under-21 cagefest
Updated January 16, 2009 12:00 AM*

CEBU - The Salazar Colleges of Science and Institute of Technology (SCSIT)Skyblazers capitalized on their superior heft and height to vanquish Team RemEMBER, 84-75, in their sudden-death final to clinch the championship of the 6th M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala Under-21 Developmental Basketball League at the full-packed Consolacion Sports Complex.

From the outset, the SCSIT Skyblazers of coach Jojo Romarate were unmindful of the pressure playing before a boisterous, partisan crowd backed up by a bunch of bass-drum beating fans.

And courtesy of their free-flowing offense, the Skyblazers jumped off to a flying start, 24-13 - a lead they never relinquished until the final buzzer.

Team RemEMBER trimmed the deficit down to eight at halftime, 29-37, but the fully-recharged Skyblazers went back to business in the third period to restore a dozen-point advantage, 59-47, going into the final 10 minutes of the contest.

It was an all-SCSIT show from there onwards. Not even the presence of the team’s staunchest supporters, Consolacion Vice Mayor Ember V. Alinsug and team manager Paul Alelu Q. Flores could uplift the spirits of the RemEMBER cagers.

From 18 points down, the best Team RemEMBER could muster was to pull within 69-71 behind the efforts of Jerome Valles as the more experienced Skyblazers proved to be a tough nut to crack at crunchtime.

Earlier, the Ave Maria Sanctuary Park staged a great escape to stun Consolacion National High School (CNHS) Black Shama in overtime, 81-79, and take home the third place honors.

It was truly a resounding triumph for Ave Maria of coach Marlon Piodo as it did not enjoy a taste of the lead until the final 28 seconds of the regulation period, 69-66. In the ensuing play, Lemuel Malagar hit a buzzer-beating triple to forge a 69-all deadlock, thus, the five-minute extension.

The highly-successul tournament was organized by the M. Lhuillier Sports Development Foundation (MLSDF) through the efforts of its executive director Eddie B. Ybañez and the all-out support of revered businessman-sportsman Michel J. Lhuillier.
