But they seem lost in transition this year. Last year, opponents would bleed in getting a win from them. Now they seem incohesive with the return of their mainstays Orbeta and Cabatu, though it's not fair in placing the blame squarely on the two. Same holdovers, same experienced coach and reinforcements. They should not be underachieving at all.

Paolo Orbeta 5'9" 150 pound pointguard

Chris Cabatu 6'5" 210 pound center

Martin Urra 6'2" 175 pound swingman

Billy Johnston 6'3" 180 pound forward

Jacob Manlapaz 6'4" 195 pound forward-center

Stan Aldover 6'2" 175 pound small forward

Mac Layug 6'4" 185 pound forward

Jon Sevilla 5'11" 160 pound guard

I don't know about you guys but with a lineup like this I cannot belive that St Benilde is at the bottom of the NCAA standings. Those are seven legit players, all of whom have substantial baller experience, some even saw action in several FMC's and HAIL's against the very same teams they face now in the NCAA. How the heck could they possibly be at the bottom of the standings? In their recent game against Letran they let the Knights make a move and beat them in the last 30 seconds of the game. They had every chance to put Letran away and they simply could not finish them off.

Is it time to fire Caloy Garcia...?

They entered the season with 10 holdovers. 2 of the 4 additions to the line-up were not exactly rookies, but veterans - Orbeta and Cabatu. Mga balikbayan, so to speak.

In effect, they have 12 veterans in their Season83 line-up. At any college league, outright lamang ka na sa experience, w/c is always an advantage. But they are losing more terribly than last season.

Dalawang laro lang ng CSB ang napanood ko. Kahit haka-haka di pwedeng gawing batayan yan... Kaya nagtataka rin ako.

Naiba kaya ang sinapit ng St Benilde kung nasa kanila pa 'yung 6'7" na white boy na naglaro para sa Team B nila nung 2006 summer leagues? ALEX BORGES yata ang pangalan niya, very athletic considering na puti, parang Danny Seigle ang dating (PARANG lang ha...) at pure Kano. May magandang pukol sa labas, malakas mag-rebound, magandang kilos sa poste, may konting dribble at passing. Naalala ko medyo hirap mag-match up sa kanya kahit mga malalakas na power forwards at centers gaya nung Jobe ng Ateneo, Vinluan ng FEU at kahit sina Thiele at Llagas namin.

Caloy Garcia has been lucky as a coach in the PBL: he has always had deep and talented teams with the right blend of experience and youth. Heck his Welcoat teams could've been coached by an amoeba, His stint so far with the St Benilde Blazers however has not been so fortunate. As stated above the team does not want for talent, they have at least eight guys who know how to play at least at an above-average level, the great majority of whom are experienced college campaigners. I have no clue what Caloy's full coaching pedigree is since I remember him mostly as a consort of sorts of the great German Moreno.

Perhaps it is time for team management to get a more experienced coach to handle the team, someone with proven coaching credentials and a solid varsity and/or pro ball background. Maybe they should seriously consider getting Mon Jose and Dominic Uy, the tandem that once handled the Lasalle Lady Archers.

St. Benilde player arrested for alleged game-fixing in NCAA

Inquirer
Last updated 04:56pm (Mla time) 08/02/2007

MANILA, Philippines -- St. Benilde shooting guard Paolo Orbeta has been arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation following allegations of game-fixing in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) men's basketball.

The league will conduct its own investigation against the 5-foot-11 player who could be facing lifetime ban from the league and expulsion from the school.

^^^ Hango sa Inquirer.

Ay Apo! Ba't sa NCAA may nahuhuli ang NBI na nanluluto ng laro? Bakit sa UAAP wala pang nahuhuli? Kunwari 'yung mga nagfe-fake ng PEP TCR...!

Sa banda naman ng basketball, ito kaya ang dahilan kung bakit walang nahihita ang Benilde sa NCAA?

Sa pagkakaalam ko may kaya ang pamilya ni Orbeta, bakit naman siya natukso ng ganito? Tsaka teka nga muna, ano ba naman ang St Benilde sa NCAA sa panahon na ito? Kung San Beda pa siguro o Letran hindi ako magtataka at sila ang talagang mga sikat na koponan ng NCAA, maaari silang dumere-derecho sa Finals. Bakit naman ang lintek na St Benilde pang napusuan ng mga fixer?

Sana lang hindi matigil kay Orbeta ang kaso, sana ultimo sa sindikato.

Pareng Wang-Bu, kung nasubaybayan mo ang laro ng CSB sa second round last season, then take into account yung 10 carryovers ngayon at ang pagbabalik nina Orbeta at Cabatu sa lineup, iisipin mo talagang legit contender sila.

Kahit yung mga Bedans, pulos paalala sa team nila na huwag maging pabaya sa huling laban nila kontra CSB, dahil nga kailangan ng SBC ng OT para itumba ang CSB sa isang laro last season. At buo pa rin ang lineup at "pinalakas pa ni Orbeta".

Ngayon, nasagot yung kanilang... aming mga tanong at pagtataka.

NCAA cager Paolo Orbeta nabbed for point shaving
08/02/2007 | 05:52 PM

A National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) basketball player, a policeman, and two others allegedly involved in point shaving were arrested by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in an entrapment in Malate, Manila on Wednesday afternoon.

NBI Director Nestor Mantaring identified the cager as Paolo Nallana Orbeta, 23, a point guard of the College of St. Benilde (CSB) Blazers. Orbeta also played for the Elasto Painters (now the Welcoat Dragons) in the Philippine Basketball League.

Also arrested were James Ryan Rosario Mangaran, 24, schoolmate of Orbeta; Rajan Lachman Amante Chandumal, 31, alias “Howard Gan," salesman, and Inspector Aaron Raemon Abon Elago, 24, detailed to the Philippine National Police-Philippine Public Safety College (PNP-PPSC), Camp Crame in Quezon City.

All are residents of Guadalupe Nuevo, Makati.

The fifth suspect identified as Luigi Guingon remains at large.

The investigation was conducted by the Anti-Fraud and Computer Crimes Division (AFCCD), headed by Assistant Regional Director (ARD) Vicente de Guzman III. The complainant is another student, Wilfred D. Uy.

According to the NBI, sometime last March, Orbeta approached Uy and Guingon at an eatery near CSB to borrow P300,000 to pay for a losing bet in a game of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Uy agreed because Guingon offered a land title, reportedly from his uncle, as collateral. Orbeta assusred Uy that theu can redeem the land title because he could easily make money betting on a rigged NCAA basketball game.

On June 29, Uy handed the amount of P310,000 to Orbeta and the alleged “banker" Chandumal. Uy was informed that he could place his bet at their NCAA games.

The complainant placed his bet for a week from July 9 to 15. But instead of winning, he merely broke even on his bets.

On July 18, Orbeta’s team had a game scheduled with the San Sebastian Stags. Orbeta again convinced Uy to place a bet on a so-called “player’s odd" – P1 million guaranteed with a sure win as the cager would make sure that he would only make less than 11 points in the game.

But the agreement did not materialize. Chandumal, the "banker," said Uy lost the bet and demanded payment. Uy then got hold of information that the bet was a scheme by Orbeta and his group.

Orbeta allegedly called up Uy and threatened him to pay otherwise the group would tell the school administrators of his activities.

On July 27, Orbeta, Chandumal, Luigi Guingon, and Elago went to the victim’s house and threatened physical harm if he would not pay up.

This prompted Uy to seek NBI help and an arranged entrapment was set up the following day.

On Wednesday afternoon, the NBI agents, in coordination with the Manila Police District (MPD), proceeded to the Ate’ Ems eater near Agno Street for the pay-off.

Uy was giving the marked money to the suspects when the NBI agents arrested them.

The suspects are facing violation of PD 1602 (illegal gambling) and Article 294 of the Revised Penal Code otherwise known as robbery with violence against or intimidation of persons. - GMANews.TV

Anthony, thanks for the correction, I get these things mixed up, good thing your prodigious basketball data bank is there to set us straight.

As for the still unfolding Orbeta case: the amounts referred to are staggering. That Orbeta would be involved in cons and scams and with such amounts shakes me to the core. How do these things get under the nose of league officials? For godsakes with those kinds of amounts I find it hard to believe there aren't some school and even league officials themselves involved somehow in these shenanigans.

How I wish the actual crime syndicates behind these operations would finally be caught and prosecuted.

I feel sorry for the young men who have such promising careers ahead of them have their lives ruined because of gambling problems exacerbated by criminals who take further advantage of them.

And if this is happening in a somewhat tony institution like St Benilde I can only imagine how much easier it would be to prey on players from less prosperous institutions and backgrounds. In these hard times it is very difficult for a kid trying to survive on a scholarship, biding his time to try and make his hoop dreams come true, to just say "No" to easy money.

The truly hard part of course is actually proving players are into such shenanigans. Orbeta's arrest was at least the result of a sting operation. Although the NBI, like all so-called law enforcement entities in these beautiful islands, does not exactly have the reputation of Caesar's wife, these are operations and cases for which the benefit of the doubt would generally be given. How about cases of alleged point-shaving? How does one tell the difference between a player deliberately throwing a game and simply having an off game?

Benilde starts probe of Orbeta



By Waylon Galvez
mb.com.ph

Though the College of St. Benilde considers at this juncture that the alleged point-shaving case of its player Paolo Orbeta is an isolated case, its officials will still investigate the player and some members of its seniors basketball team to determine if others are involved.


Henry Atayde, the Blazers’ representative to the NCAA Management Committee, said he and other officials, including those from De La Salle, which is the mother school of St. Benilde, will meet with Orbeta and his parents today so Orbeta can explain the whole story.

"We want to know if other personalities, from players to coaches, were involved," Atayde told the Bulletin yesterday.

"These are all part of the investigation we’re doing. We’ll interview players, coaches if they know this type of behavior (illegal gambling) of Paolo. Is there such a thing as ‘player’s odds scheme’. We want to know," Atayde added.

The 24-year-old Orbeta was arrested in an entrapment by National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents following a complaint by Wilfred Uy, who accused Orbeta and three others of threatening him.

As a result, the NBI charged Orbeta, James Ryan Mangaran, Rajan Chandumal and Police Inspector Aaron Raemon Abon Elago with coercion, threat, extortion and illegal gambling.

Orbeta, at present, as well as his three companions are out on a P2,000 bail each which was granted by the Manila City Prosecutor’s Office (MCPO).

But NBI Anti-Fraud Computer crimes Division chief, Assistant Regional Director Vicente de Guzman III said that the NBI will request the MCPO to reconsider the granting of bail.

De Guzman added that the NBI learned that the charge of robbery with threat and intimidation was reduced by Manila Assistant Prosecutor Exequiel Sison to light threats and ruled that Orbeta and company be released for further investigation with regards to charges of illegal gambling.

The NBI official earlier said that they considered the case of Orbeta as a "breakthrough" as far as their probe on alleged game-fixing is concerned.

The NBI, as per the request of NCAA officials, had been monitoring the NCAA and other collegiate leagues the past two years but no arrests or cases have ever been filed against any individual or team.

De Guzman admitted that it is hard to point an accusing finger on any player for point shaving or at least not playing up to par, as they can easily say that they merely had an offnight but with the arrest of Orbeta, the NBI had hoped to gather more information regarding the prevalence of illegal gambling in sporting events.

"Malalim ito. Mahirap naman basta mag-akusa na lang. Kailangan talaga may insider na makapagbibigay ng impormasyon sa mga transaksyon nila (those involved in illegal gambling)," De Guzman said. —With report from Rizal Obanil

Anong malay natin, meron na ring tinitiktikan ang NBI na ibang mga student-athletes na gumagawa nito. Sayang ang ganitong mga opportunity na binibigay sa ibang mga bata sa ngayon. You get to play basketball plus scholarships kung swerte ka pa and the exposure that you need tapos sa ganito ka lang uuwi.

I was just surprised to see this one. P2000.00? Wow. For extortion, threat of bodily harm, etc. etc. etc. Kaya pala tuloy tuloy ang racket na ito. Even if you jump bail, it's just peanuts. Kung ganito lang yung bail, huwag niyo na ipag bail.

Back on Topic: IMHO, for now, let's just take the two investigations (FBI, CSB) take its course. I'm quite sure na marami pa nga sila tinitiktikan tulad ng sabi ni BFB. Sabi din nga ni Henry Atayde, hindi lang isa pero yung iba pang mga kasapi ng team. Sana man lang ay makuha nila yung nasa taas at nagsusulsol, di yung mga utusan.

Unless they put GPS tracking implants and other such devices into the bodies of these boys even the most vigilant team management cannot account for the whereabouts and activities of all athletes 24/7.

HOWEVER, with the sheer enormity of the amounts being mentioned (P1,000,000 and P310,000 in gambling money!), it does seem a tad strange that the team management has not or did not hear anything at all.

Sir Batangueno baka naman sadyang ganyan na ngang katalamak ang sugal sa college basketball.

Ang mas inaalala ko dito ay kung mayroon pa kayang ibang mga player, mapa-star man o hindi, na sangkot sa ganitong uri ng mga gawaing kriminal. Parang ang hirap isipin, sa ganyang mga halaga ng salapi, na si Paolo Orbeta lang ang sangkot.

Nitong nakaraang UAAP lang isa sa mga player namin, si Bon Custodio, ay nasangkot din sa ganitong uri ng usap-usapan. Bagamat hindi naman siya naaresto gaya ni Orbeta, nasangkot pa din siya. Baka nga masabi pa natin na mas masakit ang nangyari kay Bon dahil mahirap labanan ang chismis. At least itong si Orbeta ay mabibigyan ng pagkakataong ipagtanggol at tanggihan sa husgado ang kanyang kinasangkutan. Papano naman si Bon, at gayun din si JR Gerilla ng FEU?

Kaibigang Wang-Bu, masakit mang isipin pero sa tingin ko ay nagkaroon na ng malalim na ugat ang game-fixing sa larong basketball dito sa Pilipinas, amateur man o propesyonal. Star player o isang pampainit ng bangko, pwedeng masangkot sa gawaing ito. Ang pwede na lang sigurong gawin ng mga namamahala ng mga liga ay ang maging mas mapagmatiyag at gumawa ng mga kaukulang aksyon laban sa mga gawaing kita katulong ang mga awtoridad (NBI, PNP, etc.).

Nakakalungkot isipin na ang mga katulad nina Bonbon Custodio, JR Gerilla at Paolo Orbeta ay nasira ang mga pangarap nang dahil sa pagkasangkot sa game-fixing. Sana lang ay wala nang sumunod pa sa kanila.

The NBI's case against Paolo Orbeta et al is proceeding at a typical snail's pace. I was told that a few court dates were postponed, rescheduled, reset or whatnot coming from both the prosecution and the defense sides.

As to the disbandment of the Blazers, there is some talk going on, however nothing official as of the moment and the team continues to practise and scrimmage, albeit not as heavily as during the season.

Yes sir. The article is in the NCAA forums. Gee will take over coaching chores for CSB this coming NCAA season. I am not just sure if he's going to coach the Blazers in any of the off season tourneys they're in as of the moment since meron pang PBA playoffs. I am not sure as well with the set up with Red Bull if he's going to continue as Yeng's assistant or if he's going to focus on CSB alone. Maybe someone can help us clarify the terms and conditions of coach Gee's stint in CSB.

UE humbles CSB, 92-71.
by Get_Blazed

The game was won by UE's 3-point shooting and pressure defense. Turnovers really killed CSB's chances. Despite getting open looks, the Blazers just had a hard time scoring. They struggled the whole first half and ended trailing UE, 21-7 in the first quarter. The first half wrapped up a 30 point lead by the Warriors. The Blazers started to pick up steam by late 3rd quarter, they started knocking down shot after shot and running the break successfully, but proved too late.

Archimedes David was the only Blazer who successfully made 3 pointers, and he was 3-5 in the perimeter. Meanwhile, UE's James Martinez and Paul Lee was toying in the perimeter as they made a lot of trifectas.

Newbies Mac Abulacion and Dalanon together with veterans Illie Johnston, Harvey Porras, Jacob Manlapaz, Archie David, Jeff Morial, and 2nd year player Gelo Montecastro saw action for Benilde. UE was bannered by Hans Thiele, Elmer Espiritu, Paul Lee, James Martinez, and a lot of newcomers. The highlight of the game was the alley-oop dunk connected by high-flying Elmer Espiritu from a miss by UE's Reyes.

Blazers scorch Knights
by Josef Ramos

The Knights pounded hard but got beat by the Blazers.

The College of Saint Benilde, coached by new mentor Gee Abanilla, refused to call them a “below-par” collegiate squad starting now in the Flying V Pre Season Invitational Cup.

“It shouldn’t be like that. Other teams must respect us,” said Abanilla, after the CSB Blazers outscored the Letran College Knights in the payoff period to eke out a 71-64 come-from-behind win last April 28, 2008 at The Arena in San Juan City. “We should prove our point like what we did today.”

Down by 43-51 at the end of third frame, College of Saint Benilde showed character in the last quarter to bounce back from a sluggish third quarter by unleashing a merciless 28-13 run that handed the Blazers their first win in two games.

“I though we almost lost it, but I’m happy the boys have learned how to win,” said Abanilla, also an assistant coach in Red Bull in the PBA. “I’m hoping all my players will sustain this kind of game.”

Forward Jeff Morial led the Blazers with 11 points, while Jacob Manlapaz collected 13 rebounds and hit 10 markers and Harvey Porras had 10 points.

Morial and Porras merged for 20 points in the final quarter, including the fast break lay up of Porras that pushed the Blazers to a 66-64 lead with 1:12 minutes to go. The Knights could not find a decent shot in the last minute mark while the Blazers had five attempts from the free throw line to peg the final count.

The game was close at first quarter (16-all) and College of Saint Benilde took the halftime lead at 34-36.

Reymar Gutilban led Letran with 14 points with Dino Daa contributing for 12 points. Bryan Foronda and RJ Jazul had 11 points each for the Knights.

Individual Scores:

CSB (71) — Morial 11, Umlas 10, Manlapaz 10, Porras 10, David 8, Montecastro 7, Abolucion 4, Dela Paz 4, Santos 4, Manalac 3, Wong 0, Johnston 0, Dino 0.

Letran (64) - Gutilban 14, Jazul 11, Foronda 11, Daa 10, Cabonce 7, Guevarra 4, Ranises 3, Dangcal 2,
Foronda 2, Latonio 0, Melegrito 0, Cortez 0.

Quarter Scores: 16-16, 36-34, 43-51, 70-64.

Three Cheers for Benilde! Its about time we start winning. Sana trend na. ANIMO! ;D

Buenafe and Reyes saves Blue Eagles from disastrous finish
by Josef Ramos

Incoming freshman Ryan Buenafe finally showed up when it mattered most as the Ateneo De Manila University Blue Eagles survived a dangerous comeback by Saint Benilde Blazers, 76-72, last April 30, 2008 in the Fil-Oil Flying V Pre Season Cup at The Arena in San Juan City .The Ateneo crowd at the arena could not believe what they saw when the Blazers started to crawl thier way back into the game.

“We collapsed in the fourth quarter and nearly lost the game,” said Ateneo head coach Norman Black. “I’m surprised Saint Benilde is starting to mature since Gee (Abanilla) took the coaching job three months ago.”

The Blue Eagles, relying heavily on Rabeh Al-Hussaini’s inside game, outscored the Blazers in the first quarter, 27-13, and eventually controlled the first half, 43-26, with Buenafe providing some offense.

But the Blazers, injected by Abanilla’s never-say-die attitude, did not surrender easily as Aaron Umlas delivered 10 of his 12 points in the third quarter, including three straight baskets, to trim down the Blue Eagles lead to 51-56 at the start of the final quarter.

Saint Benilde outplayed Ateneo in the third quarter, 25-13.

Both teams traded baskets in the early minutes of the fourth quarter, keeping the score close thrice just under the last three-minute mark (68-65), (70-68) and (74-72).

Gary Sevilla, who got 11 points for the Blazers, attempted to steal the limelight with 8.2 seconds remaining, when he fired an open trey but was off the mark.

Saint Benilde fouled Blue Eagles’ Jai Reyes and Chris Tiu and sent them to the free throw line making both thier charity opportunities to peg the final count.

Buenafe scored 6 of his 17 points in the last quarter, while Tiu fired 5 of his 14 points to calm down the Blazers’ scoring rampage in the last period.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini had 17 points in the first quarter and Nonoy Baclao had 11 rebounds. Ateneo improved its record to 3-2 while Saint Benilde dropped to 1-2. Harvey Poras led the Blazers with 13 points

Ateneo 76: Al-Hussaini 17, Buenafe 17, Tiu 14, Buenafe 12, Reyes 7, Long 6, Chua 4, Baclao 3, Baldos 3, Escueta 3, Austria 2.

CSB 72: Porras 13, Umlas 12, Sevilla 11, David 8, Morial 8, Manalac 7, Montecastro 6, Dalanon 5, Manlapaz 2

Quarter Scores: 27-13, 43-26, 56-51, 76-72.

The UPIS boys, Tolentino and Marata, are also up for grabs together with Paredes and Teng of Xavier.

Gee Abanilla seems to have brought some order in the Benilde scheme of basketball. They are now running better-spaced sets in the halfcourt and are better able to find the seams of the defense in transition. Although the Blazers tend to start off on the wrong foot, Abanilla now is able to point out errors, hand out assignments and adjust in the second half. They did it against Letran and they nearly did it to Ateneo.

Archie David and Harvey Porras are the best players on this team. Gary Sevilla and Jeff Morial spread things out from the perimeter and keep defenses honest. These guys can get you in a variety of ways. I especially like the way David and Porras are able to match up against bigger post players and succeed. David's ability to hit the 18-footer allows him to draw out opposing bigs. I'd like to see Jacob Manlapaz and Will Johnston contribute more consistently though. These two have a lot of talent and experience, especially Johnston. That neither of them seems to be a primary contributor is a little disappointing. After their B Team stints I was thinking these two would be superstars by now.

By the way whatever became of Martin Urra and Stan Aldover, finish-contract already?

Will Johnston and Jacob Manlapaz were once on Benilde's B Team, some three or so seasons ago I think. Johnston came from Adamson University and served out his residency, while Manlapaz I think came over from the UPIS but was not lined up right away in the NCAA.

One other guy I miss on this team is Alex Borges (or that's what I recall of his name) a 6'6" or 6'7" American, pure white boy, played all four frontcourt spots but seemed most comfortable as a power forward. He had some good post moves box to box and played on your Team B in one Fr Martin tournament at the same time as Johnston and Manlapaz. Gary Sevilla was also on this Team B along with them. I admit Ateneo tried to steal him from Benilde but in any event I think he simply returned to the US. Had he been around he could have helped Jay Sagad, Paolo Orbeta and Stan Aldover bring Benilde to the Final 4 two or so seasons ago, he was that good.

It appears Benilde will have a hard time getting a quarterfinal seat as UE and FEU are bracketed in Group C as well and only the top two teams will advance.

And I believe they will face teams like UE, UP, and JRU in their last remaining matches.


I have already observed that, sir. Being 3-1, I believe the only real threat we would be facing would be UE. If we could at least put up a good fight against UE and win the other remaining games(in that case losing only to FEU and/or UE, 5-2 standing), then I would still be glad.

But is UP and/or JRU a threat to us?? :o

Even in the past 3 years, sila G. Layug, ok sana pero always in foul trouble. Ok sa rebounding ang blocking pero laging gigil so lagi rin may foul tuwing nagcocontest ng basket on the D.

Kwawa tlga si Porras. When you see him play, you will see his determination. Banging inside, boxing out, scrambling for the rebound, posting up. Lahat, but he cant do it alone. He wont last long kung ganyan lage. I hope Coach Gee could find a worthy second stringer to help ease Harvey of his burdens in the shaded area. :-\

Blazers torch Golden Stags
by Josef Ramos

Since Gee Abanilla came to Saint Benilde, exactly four months ago, the College of Saint Benilde Blazers have finally embraced, well hopefully, a winning attitude.

Abanilla and his College of Saint Benilde Blazers lost to UE and Ateneo, but the preseaons is not over yet, there maybe more victims to come.

Last May 12, 2008, the CSB Blazers buckled up and surpassed the gritty challenge of the San Sebastian College Golden Stags with an 84-74 victory in the Fil-Oil Flying V Pre Season Cup at The Arena in San Juan City.

“We’ve learned from those two losses and the boys are improving well,” said Abanilla, an assistant with the Red Bull Barakos in the PBA. “I just need to be patient. Who knows? Some things might happen not only in this league but also on our way to Season 84.”

College of Saint Benilde took advantage the absence of Jim Viray and Jason Ballesteros, both playing for Burger King in the PBL, to take a 21-10 start.

With John Paul Raymundo and Ian Delgado hitting clutch baskets, the Golden Stags refused to give up early and reduced the deficit by halftime, 30-38.

But the Blazers’ determination prevailed by unleashing a superb 8-0 start to increase their edge, 46-30 with 6:17 minutes to go in the third period. The Stags responded with a quick 12-0 counter to trim the deficit to 46-42 with 1:56 miutes left.

Harvey Porras’ three-point play sparked the Blazers’ 6-1 run to close the third quarter and stay ahead, 52-43.

Angelo Montecastro, kept Saint Benilde on track, as he racked up 13 of his game-high 19 points in the final period. Keith Sevilla established 8 points in the 4th quarter on the way to duplicate his game high 19 points to bury the Stags to a 2-4 slate.

After marking an 80-70 lead in the last 2:44 minutes, the Blazers milked the clocke and matched the Golden Stags’ four baskets with less than 2 minutes left in the game and improve their record to 2-2. Harvey Porras had 15 points and 5 rebounds for the Blazers.

Dave Najorda led the Golden Stags with 17 points, while Jimbo Aquino and John Paul Raymundo added 12 points apiece forSan Sebastian, currently playing for Harbour Centre Head Coach Jorge Gallent in Baguio City.

Individual Scores:

CSB – 84: Sevilla 19, Montecastro 19, Porras 15, David 6, Umlas 6, Johnston 5, Morial 5, Manlapaz 4, Manalac 3, Dalanon 2.

SSC-R –74: Najorda 17, Aquino 12, Raymundo 12, Maconocido 9, Bringas 7, Bulawan 7, Delgado 6, Taha 2, Semira 2.

Individual Scores: 21-10, 38-30, 52-43, 84-74

Jose Rizal nips Benilde
by Jonas Terrado

A strong second half performance put Jose Rizal University out of the tight start to secure a 68-60 nipping of fellow NCAA member College of Saint Benilde in the only scheduled morning game of the 2008 Nike Summer League seniors divisions at the FEU gym in Manila last May 13.

The Heavy Bombers put a stifling defense on the Blazers to lead by double-figures for almost the whole duration of the second half en route to the win and improved their standing to a 3-3 win-loss card.

JRU, however, is in fourth place and appears to be out of contention for a slot in the quarterfinals with unbeaten Group C leaders FEU, University of the East, and the third-place Blazers, who dropped to a 3-2 mark, in front.

An 8-0 run in the last 2:30 of the second quarter gave the Mandaluyong-based squad the lead at halftime, 33-28, capped off by a running fade away shot by Ildefonso Bulangis with 13 ticks left.

In the middle portion of the third, John Wilson hit five points while Raycon Kabigting put up seven markers, including a triple that made it a 50-35 spread with 1:34 in the said period for their biggest margin of the day.

It was the frontline of James Sena and Jayson Nocom who led the Heavy Bombers. Sena recorded 13 points, seven rebounds, and four assists while Nocom contributed a double-double by scoring 10 and grabbing 10 boards on 5-for-6 shooting as both schooled CSB in the paint with their inside presence.

"We have been struggling lately because most of our players are in the PBL at ngayon lang naging buo 'yung team," quoted JRU head coach Ariel Vanguardia. "Hopefully, ngayon mag-gel yung mga veterans at mga bagong players sa team."

The Blazers matched up well with the Heavy Bombers after a 6-0 start while lanky Archimedes David fired three shots from the three-point range as the Taft-based team nailed five triples in the first half.

But Saint Benilde, who was mentored by assistant Richard del Rosario in absence of head coach Gee Abanilla, made just two shots from beyond the arc since and was held to just 13 points in the third canto to trail 54-41.

"We gave them (CSB) a lot of outside shots in the first half," Vanguardia remarked. "Ginawa namin sa second half, dinikitan namin yung mga shooters nila at nacontain naman sila."

David topscored for the black and green squad with 15 points and eight rebounds while Garri Sevilla added 14 points, five rebounds, and five assists. Point guard Anjelo Monteclaro put in nine points along with six assists in a reserve role.

The closest effort for the Blazers to come back was at 37-33 as Sevilla hit a three with 7:56 to go only for them to score just two points the next six minutes to fall behind by a large margin in the third quarter.

"Benilde is a rebuilding team but they are also dangerous, we cannot take them lightly," said Vanguardia, who had seven markers from K abigting with Wilson adding six markers alongside Maui Pradas, who bankrolled two threes in the game.

The Heavy Bombers wrapped up their campaign on Friday against Polytechnic University of the Philippines while Benilde meets University of the Philippines in the curtain raiser on the same day.

Yes it is.
1. DLSU and CSB most probably have similar patterned exams, so if you fail at one, medyo alangan ka na din sa isa.
2. Gee's already formed his team; taking players in and out would be counterproductive.

I hope players from other schools, not just LSGH and DLSZ, consider CSB as good option. I've seen good players come and go through the system and sayang yung potentials nila. Pero with Gee at the helm iba na yung orientation ng team as well as the attitude.

I see CSB moving to the middle of the pack this coming season (probably knock on the F4.) Then hopefully the F4 (and Finals!) within 2-3 years.

For example, first choice ni recruit CSB then hindi siya puede dun, then try muna sa Main if he can get a slot, then if all else fail, then hanap na siya ng ibang school that can help fulfill the players dreams of playing in either the UAAP or the NCAA. This can also happen vice-versa for DLSU's case as well rather than giving the recruit to UE.


Point taken. But again, pls refrain from referring to DLSU as "main", we(from CSB's AKIC and SDA campuses refer to the Taft campus as Main and not La Salle). Remember, we are a different college/school under the DLS umbrella. Otherwise no connection to the university directly.

“By banning Pascual, the ManCom committed a blatant injustice”

Posted: 21 Jun 2008 07:46 AM CDT

Editor’s note: Inboundpass.com received this letter from a lawyer who is, at present, a master of laws student of International Human Rights Law and Criminal Justice in the Netherlands. The sender has asked inboundpass.com not to divulge his/her identity. As such, inboundpass.com has decided to publish the letter in full, while providing two public documents that the sender furnished to us – the report of Mr. Henry Atayde, NCAA ManCom board member, and affidavit of Mr. Elvin Jake Pascual - both of which can be accessed here: atayde-pcu-report.rtf pascual-affidavit.rtf

Dear Mr. Abasolo:

Pardon my intrusion to your Multiply account. I have been searching for your official e-mail address on the Net to reach you. After an ardent search, your Multiply account was the closest I could get to.

I write to you to expose an injustice committed to one of the young players in the roster of the San Beda College Red Lions, Elvin Jake Pascual. Pascual was the 2006 NCAA Juniors Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player awardee, playing for the Philippine Christian University Baby Dolphins. As you may know, PCU was suspended by the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) last year for various irregularities involving falsification of documents and identity switching among its athletes. Four players of the PCU Baby Dolphins were directly involved in these anomalies and have been banned from competition in the NCAA. Pascual moved to San Beda College. Subsequently, the NCAA recommended to San Beda not to include Pascual in its team last year because of certain concerns that were raised that may jeopardize the team. San Beda heeded this and as a sign of good faith, Pascual was not included in the Red Lions’ campaign in Season 83.

On June 5, 2008, the NCAA Management Committee (ManCom) issued a ruling to exclude Pascual from the official Season 84 line-up of San Beda’s seniors basketball team for violating the NCAA rule prohibiting graduating high school students who are repeaters from participating in any competition in the NCAA. Also, his purported submission of falsified documents to the NCAA became a reason for the ManCom’s ruling. As of this writing, San Beda has brought this case on appeal before the NCAA Policy Board.

In 2004, Pascual was sixteen years old and a fourth year high school student of St. Rose Catholic School in Paniqui, Tarlac. His brother brought him to Manila and encouraged him to apply for a basketball scholarship with PCU. On his own volition, he personally came to PCU with the intent to join its seniors basketball team, as he was, at that time, a graduating high school student. He was advised by a certain Pedro “Bong” Sales, head coach of the PCU Baby Dolphins, to repeat his third year of high school to gain experience and be familiar with Manila basketball. According to his sworn statement, Pascual was then instructed to officially drop out from his fourth year high school studies in St. Rose Catholic School in Tarlac, and to bring with him his second year high school report card to officially enrol as a third year high school student at PCU. Mr. Sales facilitated Pascual’s enrolment in PCU High School, enabling him to serve a one-year residency and play for a year with the Baby Dolphins. He succeeded in winning both the Rookie of the Year plum and Most Valuable Player honors in the Juniors Division that year.

From the antecedent facts, it may be inferred that there was no falsification involved in the case of Pascual as he submitted to Mr. Sales his authentic and genuine second year high school report card. Nor in any stage of this process did Pascual have any intent to repeat his third year of high school. There was no intent on his part to violate NCAA rules and regulations. As a minor who knew nothing about his chances to study in Manila, he was merely acting upon the advice of his future basketball coach. In fact, Mr. Sales, who was an athletics official in PCU, was in a position to know the regulations fairly well. The intent to falsify or undertake fraudulent acts must be imputed on Sales. For abusing the innocence and noble intent of Pascual, it is Sales who must be penalized and not the victim, who is Pascual.

The NCAA ManCom took as legal basis Rule 1.2.4 of the NCAA By-Laws to exclude Pascual from the Red Lions line up. It is the contention of San Beda that this rule, which provides that a GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT who is a REPEATER be deemed ineligible to compete in any NCAA tournament (emphasis mine), shall apply only to a current high school student and not to Pascual, who is now a bona fide graduate of PCU High School, and a bona fide student currently enrolled in twelve academic units in San Beda College. This is in faithful compliance with Rules 1.2 and 1.3 of the NCAA, which also concurrently apply to athletes in the Juniors and Seniors Divisions. Pascual’s status as a graduate of PCU High School and his eligibility to play in the Seniors Division was validated by Mr. Henry Atayde in an investigation he headed, one commissioned by the NCAA as well.

Finally, the NCAA ManCom used against Pascual the very facts that he declared to be the best of his knowledge in an affidavit he, together with San Beda College, voluntarily executed and submitted to the NCAA. This was initiated by San Beda to clarify any involvement he may have had with the PCU anomaly. With this affidavit, Pascual actually helped the NCAA gather more information leading to the responsible officials who directly took part in the fraudulent acts. Even in courts of law, an offender, who has collaborated with authorities through his testimony, is lawfully discharged from his case as a state witness. By banning Pascual on the basis of his own statements and readmitting his former Alma Mater PCU to play this season, the ManCom committed a blatant injustice by violating his right against self-incrimination.

I humbly seek your able assistance, hoping that this narration of facts merits the attention of our media, whether through print, broadcast or cyberspace, in fighting the injustice committed on the defenseless. Elvin Jake Pascual left his home in Paniqui, Tarlac, as a sixteen-year-old to secure an education with only his basketball prowess to offer. He took his chances, all knowing that his parents – his father, a tricycle driver and his mother, a simple housewife – were not financially equipped to give him this opportunity. With your help, it is hoped that the dream of this upcoming basketball star lives on.

Thank you for your valuable attention.

Let us talk about the CSB Blazer's RP Youth member, Mark Joel De Guzman.

Who knows about this guy or have seen him play? Kamusta maglaro tong bata? He's a 6'0 guard for the RP Youth team. Alam din nating discouraged maglaro ang RP Youth members sa teams nila for the NCAA and UAAP this season, pero ano kaya maibibigay nito sa Blazers in the future? :)

It was easy to notice the De Guzman kid while he was still playing for the RP-Youth team a couple of weeks ago. He is thin and wiry, but with good height, around 6'0". What you notice about him, is his ballhandling and quickness. He is a flashy type of player, relying on his quick moves to the basket to get a shot of.

He also has that tendency to throw flashy shots, which, unfortunately in the RP-Youth's early games against the PBL teams, he wasn't making. If and when he develops a consistent outside shot, and he learns to hit those difficult, flashy layups, he will be an exciting player to watch. He did start to play relatively well against the PBL teams after their US stint, it was then when he started scoring double-figures in some games.

Let me just repost the whole chunk on the Blazers from inboundpass.com's very own Christian Soler's article so we can maybe have a few topics to talk about on the points he made:

"College of Saint Benilde Blazers
2007 record: 1-11 (7th place)
Additions: MC Abolucion; Chuck Dalanon; Christian de la Paz; Robbie Mañalac; Andrei Martinez; Dustin Posadas; Karl Stephen Santos; Aaron Umlas; Alexander Patrick Wong
Subtractions: Stan Aldover; Antonio Cadiz; Christian Cabatu; Gerald Layug; Harvey Porras; Paolo Orbeta; Kris Robles; David Urra; Martin Urra
Holdovers: Archie David; Ilie Johnston; Jacob Manlapaz; Angelo Montecastro; Jeff Morial; Garri Sevilla

Background: 2007 was the Blazers’ worst campaign in school history. After beating Mapua in its opening game, College of Saint Benilde lost a whopping 11 straight games. As the season progressed, CSB’s performances went from pitiable to horrible. The Paolo Orbeta game-fixing controversy added fuel to the Taft fire, and nothing seemed to go right.

Key changes: The biggest change took place at the coaching helm. Caloy Garcia was replaced by current Red Bull assistant Gee Abanilla. The change has paid dividends, as evidenced by the team’s performance in preseason tournaments. Clearly, Abanilla has injected a new mindset into the Blazer camp, instilling a newfound desire to play tough defense, hustle and do the little things that evade the box score – a clear departure from the laid-back approach past Benilde teams have exhibited.

The team’s make-up has also changed significantly. Orbeta is out, and so are key contributors Martin and David Urra, Kris Robles and Christian Cabatu. Center Harvey Porras was expected to play this year, but was deemed ineligible due to academic reasons. Inevitably, Abanilla has drawn up a new and different offensive scheme for his young lineup. Expected to give the Blazers the scoring sock they need are holdovers Archie David, Jeff Morial and Garri Sevilla.

CSB underwent a huge facelift over the offseason. Rookies Chuck Dalanon, Robbie Mañalac, MC Abolucion and Christian de la Paz will see significant minutes despite being neophytes.

Outlook: To say that this season will be better than last is to state the obvious. Nothing – save for an 0-14 campaign – will be worse, and I don’t think even last season’s Blazers could sink that low. CSB will definitely be more competitive this time around, perhaps better than what most people think. Morial and Sevilla are better players, while David has steadily improved his inside game. And let’s not forget the speedy Angelo Montecastro. He’s a potential zone breaker.

A pressing concern that Saint Benilde needs to address, however, is its offensive source. CSB literally couldn’t buy a basket during some stretches in the preseason, shooting blanks and failing to set up its half-court scheme effectively. If this persists, Abanilla’s wards will confront the situation they least would want to – getting blown out as early as the second or third quarter.

Prognosis: CSB will definitely win more than one game this year. A 4-12 campaign and seventh place will be a good building block for the future, while five to six wins would be huge for the program. A Final Four stint, however, seems quite far-fetched."

Maybe may point ka dun sa ''new players'' pero I think having a new system -plus new coach- can be more of beneficial than it would affect us negatively. If you know what I mean. Lalo na't most players are new, there wouldnt be a problem adjusting to a new system. While we all believe(or hope, for that matter) that Coach Gee would be leaps-and-bounds better than Coach Caloy for the Blazers. With all due respect to Coach Caloy, its just that we saw the Blazers reaping the results immediately after Coach Gee came into the picture. ;)

O wala namang nag a-assure ng certain number of wins dito a. Some one started making predictions about 4 wins and you were ok with that. When I mentioned 2 wins bigla kang nagbanggit nang some other guys. And I wasn't insulting CSB when I mentioned 2 wins. In fact, I gave a good reason for that.

This is not pex my friend. ;)

Have you ever seen him play, sir? Kamusta naman? :)


He played well for me, as per my observation kaya lang if he was asked to play the four or five spots, he was easily boxed out by Walsham or Ferdinand even if they almost have the same height. But I have to say that the guy is talented. So it is all up to coach Gee on how to develop him.

Congratulations for having a sub forum for CSB. Goodluck on your first assignment this Saturday. ANIMO!

I heard that while enrolled si de Guzman sa Benilde, hindi siya kasama sa team dahil sa agreement with the SBP.

That's true. Unless he pulls out of the youth program.

I was not referring to anyone in particular and there was no insult intended likewise on my part. ;)

Sana makita natin production ng mga new guys. Kelangan sila mahasa for the future. Sana makita na muna natin ang significant improvements of the Blazers. ;)

Pinakamatunog na po sa amin yung bagong RP Youth member na si Mark De Guzman. Though di siya pwede makapaglaro for the Blazers this season due to his prior commitment to the Philippine team this year.

Yupyup. Though gusto natin makitang maglaro siya for the Blazers, importante din naman sa atin ang Philippine pride sa international basketball scene. ;)

Actually, sir BC, Greenies ang official name ng LSGH squad. But they are popularly(mistakenly) called the Junior Blazers, to the extent that most people recognized them as such. That is why we use both names informally. :D

To Add: Greenies have been used since the initial NCAA days of LSGH. (Though some of my Titos would say that we were once called LSGH Rangers. Our Grade School Yearbook is called Ranger.) Pareho lang case namin with the DLS Zobel team who are also called Bengals. As G_B said, either way is acceptable (though Greenies is preferred.)

Just probably a note though: there is no such thing as DE LA SALLE GREENHILLS. It is simply LA SALLE GREENHILLS.

nabasa ko rin sa column ni quinito na ginamit din nila ang "Teenarchers" or something to that effect.

OK sana kung may makakapagbigay ng complete history ng team names ng LSGH and other teams as well :)

So Ive heard. Rangers aint bad, either. Pero yan yata yung time na DLSU pa ang kakambal ng LSGH.
Either way, I think it would be fine be it Greenies, or Junior Blazers. Just never call them the Junior Archers. Please. DLSZ yun.::)

And yes, its simply LSGH. ;)

From inboundpass.com, I think this can sum up the lineup of the Blazers this coming NCAA season 84:

Additions: MC Abolucion; Chuck Dalanon; Christian de la Paz; Robbie Mañalac; Andrei Martinez; Dustin Posadas; Karl Stephen Santos; Aaron Umlas; Alexander Patrick Wong
Subtractions: Stan Aldover; Antonio Cadiz; Christian Cabatu; Gerald Layug; Harvey Porras; Paolo Orbeta; Kris Robles; David Urra; Martin Urra
Holdovers: Archie David; Ilie Johnston; Jacob Manlapaz; Angelo Montecastro; Jeff Morial; Garri Sevilla

Medyo sayang si David Urra and Harvey Porras because I like the play of these two players whom I should say are fit to play coach Gee's system.

Are you sure youre referring to David, and not Martin Urra?

Harvey Porras is a big loss for the Blazers. Without him, walang post presence and Benilde. Expect Ballesteros and Co. to swallow up Benilde whole in the paint area. :-\

I just called Ticketnet, damn, Upper B tickets nalang day and Gen Ad ang available for Saturday. Maybe I would get Upper B tickets muna for the Opening pero sana naman pwede magtransfer sa baba kung 8 PM na in time for the CSB-PCU game. Im guessing ghost town na naman ang Araneta by then diba? :-\
