Basketball at its purest
THERE’S a familiar sea of red and white whenever the Coca-Cola Tigers Junior Super League comes into play at its regular venue, Xavier School, and at other school venues in Metro Manila.

Different schools garbed in resplendent Coca-Cola uniforms, courtesy of Anta, make up the 50-member cast of the league that is set to take Philippine basketball by storm now and in the coming years, while pushing Coca-Cola’s Healthy and Active Lifestyle (HAL) initiative.

Having worked with the Coca-Cola organization before as its head coach, this writer believes that the league provides a competitive environment in which basketball players can further harness their skills individually and collectively.

The cast is a mix of the best and the aspiring. There are established schools such as University of Santo Tomas (UST), Adamson and Xavier, but also teams like St. Jude and Antipolo Lady of Lourdes School (ALLS), among others, which are raring to make a mark and are showing their best form during the tournament.

In the past few games, the scores do not reflect the intensity of how the games were played. While there were classics, there are games that players should take on as lessons and use these as motivation to play better next time.

Tournament organizer and long-time Coach E instructor Tyrone Limon believes this so, and invites everyone to watch the games held every Saturday and Sunday and during weekdays. The tournament lasts until the early part of September.

These games are, by far, the purest form of play, without a care for fame or fortune but solely for the enjoyment of the game.

The participating teams in the boys’ 1-2 division are Adamson University (AdU), ALLS, Chiang Kai Shek College (CKSC), Don Bosco Technical College-Mandaluyong, Don Bosco Technical Institute-Makati (DBTI), Ernesto Rondon High School, Holy Trinity Academy, Hope Academy, Hope Christian High School, Immaculate Heart of Mary College (IHMC), Jose Abad Santos Memorial School (JASMS), Lourdes School-Mandaluyong (LSM), Rizal High School, School of St. Anthony, St. Jude Catholic School (SJCS), St. Patrick School, St. Stephen High School, St. Vincent School, University of Santo Tomas High School (USTHS) and Xavier School.

The cast in the boys’ 3-4 division are ALLS, CKSC, Don Bosco-Mandaluyong, Don Bosco-Makati, E. Rondon High, Holy Trinity Academy, Hope Academy, Immaculate Conception Cathedral School, IHMC, International Christian School, La Salle-Greenhills, LSM, Philippine Science High School, Rizal High School, School of St. Anthony, St. Dominic de Savio College,* St. Patrick School, St. Stephen High School, St. Vincent School and USTHS.

Taking part in the girls’ division are AdU, Holy Trinity, Hope Academy, JASMS, Miriam College, Philippine Science High, Rizal High, School of St. Anthony, St. Scholastica’s-Santa Rosa and St. Stephen High School.

The league, this early, is already enjoying tremendous success and is destined to be the premier junior league of the future.

1st Runner-Up Finish for Aspirants Basketball Team
Posted by Larry Delas Penas on Monday, 8 September 2008 at 3:14 pm · Filed under Athletics

The Xavier Aspirants Basketball Team succumbed to the pressure applied by Hope Christian High School(HCHS), 49 - 57, and finished 1st Runner-Up in the Coca-Cola Tigers Junior Super League(JSL) Tournament. The championship match was played last 07 September at the Jacinto Tiu center court of Xavier’s Rafael Cortina Sports Center.

Hope Christian poured on a 10-0 run right after the tipoff and even led by as many as 20 points in the 2nd quarter sending the Xaverians on a steep uphill path to get themselves back into the game in the succeeding periods.

HCHS made 8 treys compared to Xavier’s 3. And the Stallions crucially made only 10 out of 34 free throws for a very low 29.5% clip, while HCHS made all 7 of their free throws.

The Xavier team is a mixed group of players from two Passerelle/Aspirants teams. Coaches Lito Vergara and Jojo Imutan wanted to experiment and give more exposure to their players never expecting to play in the finals.

The Xaverians gruelingly inched their way to close the gap at 46 - 48 as the 2-minute buzzer sounded. HCHS however got their second wind and went on a 9 - 3 rampage giving an exhausted Xavier squad no chance at coming back.

Paolo Cabero(H1E) and Jeron Teng(H1C) got special awards as members of the Coke JSL Mythical Five Selection.

Congratulations to the Xavier Coke JSL Aspirants Team! We are proud of you! Luceat Lux!

Ask Coach E
A boost to basketball players everywhere
by Eric Altamirano

ALTHOUGH deep in the preparations for the upcoming National Basketball Training Center (NBTC) D-League, this corner won’t let the opportunity pass without thanking those who backed the recent Junior Super League (JSL).

Indeed, the JSL was given the big boost when the red-and-white colors of Coca-Cola adorned it for the past two months. It is definitely a delight seeing players shedding their school colors for a while to wear the uniforms provided for by Anta.

Whether the games were close or blowouts, the players and the supporters cheered their hearts out for their teams in the eliminations, semifinals and finals. As I said in a previous column, this league definitely presented the purest fun that basketball could offer without the fame and fortune in its later years.

In the finals, Hope Christian beat Xavier School for the boys’ 1-2 crown, Miriam College bested Adamson for the lone women’s crown while La Salle Greenhills nipped University of Santo Tomas for the boys’ 3-4 crown.

We would also like to say thank you to the participating teams, namely, Lourdes School of Mandaluyong, Don Bosco Mandaluyong, Holy Trinity Academy, IHMC, Rizal High School, University of Santo Tomas (UST), Xavier, Adamson, St. Vincent, Chiang Kai Shek College (CKSC), St. Jude, St. Stephen, Ernesto Rondon, Hope Academy , Antipolo Lady of Lourdes School, St. Patrick, Don Bosco Makati and JASMS for the boys 1st and 2nd division.

For the third and fourth year division, the teams are Lourdes School of Mandaluyong, Don Bosco Mandaluyong, School of St. Anthony, Ernesto Rondon, St. Vincent, ALLS, Rizal High School, St. Dominic, CKSC, UST, Immaculate Conception Cathedral, Philippine Science, Hope Academy, St. Patrick, St. Stephen, Holy Trinity Academy, International Christian School, Don Bosco Makati and IHMC.

For the girls division, the honor roll includes Miriam, Rizal High School, St. Stephen, Philippine Science, St. Scholastica’s, Adamson, Holy Trinity Academy, School of St. Anthony, Hope Academy and JASMS.

To these teams, particularly the players, coaches, supporters and the administration, we say our congratulations and heartfelt thanks.

Kudos is also directed to the organizers, led by Tyrone Limon and the hard-working Coach staff.

On the surface, it might be just another school tournament, but of course, this corner will insist that it will be something more in the future.

Among the array of young and eager basketball players for 50-plus teams, there will surely emerge players who will define the Philippine Basketball landscape in the coming years.

Speaking of changing the basketball landscape, we do hope that the NBTC D-League does that when it comes off the wraps on October 25. For this we thank Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas headed by Manny V. Pangilinan, with executive director Noli Eala. We will also take to heart the invaluable advice of Youth Basketball Commission chairman Nic Jorge and the support of Nokia. We can’t wait until the games actually kick off on that date.
