Here are some trivias about the premier amateur league in the 80s the PABL, which starting 1990 was renamed PBL.

Did you know that,,,,

-In 1986, Magnolia captured the PABL Founders cup title without a single loss in the tournament, the team was bannered by allan caidic, elmer reyes and the core of the fabled NCC, they beat ESQ marketing, led by their former teammate Hector Calma, 3-0 in the finals. that the Purefoods team debut in Philippine basketball on that same tourney.

-Allan Caidic also holds the record for the most number of three point shots converted in the PABL with 15 triples while playing for Magnolia in 1986, he previously hit 12 triples broken by Ed Macaraya with 14.

-In the 1987 Int. Invitationals, the PABL with chairman Joey Concepcion of RFM, allowed the semifinal teams to get players from teams eliminated to be competiive against the guest foreign squads, his team, Swift benefited from getting players like Jojo Lastimosa and Nelson Asaytono, which led to the franchise first PABL title, beating the Alvin Patrimonio-led Yco shinemasters via 2 game sweep, somehow Swift's rival Purefoods stand firm not to beef up its lineup and paid dearly for it in the semis.

- there has been so many brawls, rumbles in Philippine basketball but for old timers, the match between the Swift-USA all stars and PABL-Philips has to go down as the worst ever basketbrawl, from what I recall the game was never finished after our locals (the '87 national team) rallied and were up by four 83-79 with less than two minutes left. an american player somewhat elbowed benjie paras on the neck which triggered and empty both benches.

- In 1990, from PABL to PBL, under then commissioner Andy Jao, the PBL begin serving as the farm league of the PBA, the use of 4 Quarters, 40 minutes instead of two halves, and thus eliminating the one on one and the right to waive during the penalty situation, one classic change Jao used which never happened in any basketball tourney was the first to score 7 points in the extension period, instead of a 5 minute overtime period. the PBL also began playing with imports starting that year.

triple-doubles are extremely rare in the PBL. Only a handful of players have achieved this feat: Asi Taulava, Jerome Ejercito, and, surprise, surprise: Tonichi Pinzon!

1990 PBL Finals Recap

Magnolia Ice Cream subdued Philips Sardines 98-93 in OT, to retain their Maharlika Cup Crown in Game 4 at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium. Just when the sardines canners thought there would still be Game 5, Jun Limpot, the tournament MVP took charge, with Philips ahead 81-70, Limpot banged in nine points in a 13-3 run as the Ice cream makers threatened at 83-84. Regulation of play ended at 89-all. In the extension which makes use of the “first to score seven” rule, Johnedel Cardel, perhaps unaware that Magnolia needs only a point to win, flicked a triple that swished the net and sent the Magnolia supporters into a frenzied celebration.

The Crispa Redmanizers won its first PBL Crown since joining the league in 1989, via three game sweep over highly touted Philips Sardines Canners and completed a 14-game roll in the PBL Challenge cup. Crispa’s prized import Derrek Taylor, eventually named Best Import, average 37 points in the aborted Best of five series, Johnny Abarrientos, chosen MVP tallied 22 an outing and 10 assists, while Bong Hawkins contributed 15 points and 10 rebounds per game. “I told them to play hard whether (andy) Grosvenor will be around or not. And they responded,” said Atoy Co, the first rookie coach to snare a PBL plum after Crispa’s 106-99 clincher at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum. The Redmanizers also took Game 1, 97-87, and Game 2, 107-88. “memories, parang nararamdaman ko nung kapanahunan namin,” added Co.

Sta.Lucia Realty finally won its first ever PBL title by winning the PBL Philippine Cup crown, beating Burger City 94-83 in Game 4, for a while, fate appeared set to intervene again in the realtors frustrating bid for the best of five titular series, Burger City got a buzzer beating triple from Rafael Dinglasan to win Game 3, 82-81 and avert a Sta.Lucia sweep of the playoffs, but the realtors will not be denied in the series-clinching win as Eugene quilban scored 17 points and issued six assists and was hands down choice as MVP of the title series. SLR center Marlou Aquino skyhooked his way to 24 points in Game 4.

2000-2001 PBL Challenge Cup Finals

Despite a very impressive record in the PBL challenge cup, nobody gave Shark Energy drink a ghost of a chance to win the title against the highly touted Welcoat Paint masters.
Welcoat had gained a measure of success as a PBL superpower after pulling off three straight titles in the country’s premier amateur commercial league, In Contrast, Shark was just an upstart team that entered the PBL fold only this year after buying the franchise of Chowking chinese fastfood.
In Shark’s first conference last year, the power boosters made it to the finals against the paint masters but the series went Welcoat’s way as the Wel-bel franchise posted a 4-0 sweep in the league’s first ever Best of Seven duel.
So when the Challenge Cup came along, it was up to coach Leo Austria to proved skeptics wrong, Austria steered Shark to a league-best 13-2 win-loss record at the end of the elimination and semifinal rounds, compared to Welcoat’s 11-4 slate. Defying the odds, Shark rallied from a 0-2 deficit in the finals to win four of the next five games to eventually win its first-ever PBL crown and, at the same time, end Welcoat’s dreams of further extending its dynasty.
The Power Booster’s 67-54 triumph over the Paint Masters in the seventh and deciding game was a testimony to the way Austria expertly outwitted his former mentor, Welcoat’s Junel Baculi, for most of the series. And it was all a matter of heart. “we proved our critics wrong” Austria said inside the Makati Coliseum pressroom after his team’s pulsating win.
Actually, Shark could have won the series in six games had it not been for its 75-76 loss to Welcoat in Game 5, which was tinged with controversy. After the Paint Masters guard Anton Viloria shoved his team ahead with a jumper, 1.7 seconds left in the game, Shark guard Roger Yap was fouled while taking a three point shot but referee Manolito Quilengen didn’t give Yap three foul shots and instead ordered an inbound, which Yap failed to complete. The Power Boosters camp protested the game’s outcome but through the intercession of team owner and PBL chairman Dioceldo Sy, the protest was withdrawn.
Welcoat earlier opened the series with 72-59 and 92-86 wins in Games 1 and 2 before Shark came back to tie the playoffs with 65-50 and 62-50 wins in Games 3 and 4.
The Power Boosters were clearly the underdogs heading into Game 6 but thanks to a crucial steal by Yap that led to a fastbreak dunk by Chester Tolomia, Shark sent the series to a deciding seventh game with a 60-54 win.
Game 7 was close for most of the way although Welcoat managed to control the tempo with Brandon Sison, Viloria and Eugene Tan scoring repeatedly from all angles. But with Yap waxing hot with three triples in the third quarter and Rysal Castro doing his damage inside the paint, Shark took command with a 49-45 lead late in the third period. Eventually, Welcoat collapsed in the final quarter as Shark unleahed a game-ending 14-4 run that sealed the issue.
Yap, who was chosen as Finals MVP, finished with a game high 22 points while Castro, the FEU starting center, added 20 aside from limiting Welcoat’s star big man Yancy de Ocampo to just seven points and ten rebounds. Shark’s swarming defense also limited the production of conference Most Valuable Player Renren Ritualo. The La Salle hotshot was held down to just eight points in Game 7 after averaging 18 points in the first six games of the series.
Austria’s win for Shark was his first big triumph as a PBL coach. He first started coaching in the league with Chowking two years ago but couldn’t steer the team to the finals due to the presence of strong teams like Tanduay and Red Bull. He gave credit to Sy and co-owner Raul Panlilio for keeping tne team alive and agreeing to buy the Chowking franchise and give it a more appealing look by renaming it as Shark. For now, its time for the rest of the PBL to fear the Shark Attack.

PBL Files (1998 Centennial Cup)

Tanduay bites the dust

Tanduay’s Rhummakers plunged themselves into the gutter. The mission to sweep this years’ PBL Centennial cup gone with it. And Welcoat found the defending champion out of sync, unspirited, lackluster and simply out of its mind.
“they were in another planet,” was the simple analysis of an observer who watched Tanduay destruct against Welcoat, 92-80, last Monday ending the highly-regarded defending champion’s win-run to nine.
Although the paint specialists, starring Samboy Lim, played up-par basketball, it was Tanduay which could not find rhythm, cohesiveness and teammanship all game long.
The loss dropped Tanduay’s record to 9-1 while Welcoat drew near the semifinal line at 6-5. The big win livened up the Welcoat camp, the same group which appeared headed for oblivion after dropping a match against a lowly Zest-O squad last week.
Meanwhile, Jimwell Torion, the plucky cebuano spitfire, continued to draw raves for playmaking-wizardry and point-making. He teamed up with Lordy Tugade in lifting Red Bull to a hair raising win over Wilkins Distilled Water, 86-84. That put their team in second place of the standings with a 7-4 slate.
The game was so tight that Torion had to feed Tugade in the closing phase of the match for a jumper which spelled the difference for coach Nat Canson. The speller took place with 51 seconds to go with the score tied at 84-all. Torion got a pass from Rene Suba and the wily guard wove through Toto de Guzman, Bong Dela Cruz and Michael Orquillas to find Tugade open for a twinner.
Wilkins finished the double-round eliminations with a 6-6 card and coach Jummy Martires and his staff are now hard-pressed to bring the winning attitude to his players.
Aside from topscoring with 29 points, Torion got nine rebounds and nine assists plus five steals, Tugade sizzled for 28 points, including 20 in the first half.

Renewed Tanduay scores

Tanduay zoomed out of the stymied position and continued its march in the Centennial cup of the PBL semifinals with a rousing win over Chowking, 65-51, Sunday at the Makati Coliseum
The defending champion came out with a redemption of sort for an overall 12-1 card in the five-team semis. Bobby jose, coming off an injury, tallied 17 points and three assists, wax hot from the three point line, drilling in four treys in the final half, Chowking charted its seventh loss in 13 outings.
In another match that launched the semis, Welcoat again showed its off-and-on effort in whipping Wilkins distilled water, 86-75, sans ace player Samboy Lim.
Glenn peter Yap and Dino Manuel combined for 19 points in the final half as the paint masters scored their seventh win in 13 outings.

Meek Tanduay

The PBL Centennial Cup’s semifinal round has become topsy-turvy after two teams were blessed by the meek. Batang Red Bull and Wilkins distilled water, two teams hotly contesting the remaining finals berth, have been gifted with boosters by Tanduay in matches where the defending champion was bullied and decked to submission.
Very few heads turned when the rhummakers were bludgeoned by Red Bull, 70-56, in a one-sided match where the charges of alfrancis chua played decent basketball for one quarter then threw trash the rest of the way. Then came the spirited water distillers of coach Arlene Rodriguez, blowing hot and cold but finally emerging victory over the bemadalled rhummakers, 75-71 last Monday. The losses did not affect Tanduay’s lofty position in the finals. It has qualified as early as last week with a 14-3 card.
Former UST standout Richard Yee played hard and effectively for Wilkins with 21 points and 10 rebounds while mainstay Don Camaso teamed up with Bong Dela Cruz in staging the coup de grace. Erik Menk, the league’s first rookie MVP, was held to just five points while Jomer Rubi delivered a point in 18 minutes of play.
Chris Calaguio and Cesar Romero were the headliners as Chowking continued to spurt after an overtime win over Welcoat, 71-69. The victory placed the charges of Leo Austria on equal footing with Red bull at 8-7. Welcoat is now 7-9 while the food masters’ triumph moved them just two wins away from gaining the other finals seat via the 5-of-8 incentive scheme.

For instance, I believe Blu Detergent has also used Dazz Dishwashing Liquid. Magnolia has used its cheese, ice cream and now its pure water products. Bacchus will be known as Cobra Energy Drinks this conference.

Magnolia actually used the monickers Ice Cream, Juice Drinks and Cheese spread and at one time they were known as Instafood before, Swift must have the most number of products used with Swift hotdogs, New Pop Cola, Sarsi, Carol Ann's and Rica hotdogs.

Why Philips is Winning
By: Jeffrey Cruz
April 1990

Individually, Philips Sardines will rank lowly in the PBL Maharlika Cup. As a team, however, the Sardine Canners are tough nut to crack. Credit that to coach Joe Lipa’s expertise in handling and motivating his gritty bunch of over-achievers.
After absorbing an initial 78-92 licking from Defending Champion Magnolia, Philips has bounced back with three convincing wins to occupy solo second in the eight-team field. Bolstered by the return of 6-6 center Alejandro Araneta, the Sardines makers hurdled Burger City, 79-72, subdued Agfa Color XRG, 91-81; and trounced Sta.Lucia Realty, 87-64, to pose a threat to the Ice Cream Makers’ ambitious two-round sweep bid. The Sardines Makers, who also acquired promising center Joey Valdez from Adamson University to bolster their frontline, could have notched victory No.4 at the expense of Sarsi were it not for a power failure which the postponement of some games two weeks ago.
Burger City, which underwent a massive recruiting and rebuilding program before the season started, also looms as a title contender. With newcomers Vergel Meneses, Ferdinand Ravena, Peter Naron, Allen Sasan and Eric Quiday proving to be worthy acquisitions, the Burger Masters have notched two wins, the last a 94-91 palpitator over Sarsi last Monday, when blackout again caused the resetting of two more games. Sta.Lucia was leading Agfa, 73-59, with six minutes left in the second game when darkness engulfed the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.
It was a frustrating thing to happen to Sta.Lucia as the Realtors, who dropped their first three matches, could have gotten back on track with a win over the Film Specialists. Now, they have to wait for the decision of PBL commissioner Andy Jao on whether the aborted game will be replayed entirely or will it proceed from the original time left. Jao said he will study the rules on such incidents, but for the meantime, he has written Meralco to alter the brownout schedules on the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex so that the league can proceed according to schedule. Apart from juggling, the playing schedules, the brownouts have also affected the PBL attendance, which prior to the two brownouts, were on the upswing.
Crispa 400, another fancied team, along with the surprising Sarsi Sizzlers are also in the thick of the fight for semifinal slots with 2-3 records. Sta.Lucia, no less than a five-time runner-up to Magnolia in the last two years, hugged the cellar along with Agfa. Don’t count them out however. The Realtors and the Film Specialists are still capable of springing back.
They must do it immediately though as the Realtors and the Film Specialists are raring to go back to war. Meralco permitting.

PBL Court Report
The Race to the semis is getting hotter
Weekly Scoreboard April 27-May 3, 1992

As the days of summer get hotter and hotter, the race for the smeifinals in the ongoing Maharlika cup of the PBL also got its temperature on the rise. Six slots are open for the nine ballclubs for passage in the next round and it seems that a photo finish among the last three qualifiers is not remote.
Sta.Lucia Realty (7-2) Triple-V (6-2) and A & W hamburger (6-4), the top three teams in the standings right after the Holy Week break, are seeded to earn their berths to the semifinal round although they may still miss the bus with a sudden reversal of form.
On the coattails of the top three quintet are Crispa White Cement and Burger Machine, who both tote even 5-5 slates owing to stinging setbacks to lowly teams Wednesday last week. Next is powerhouse Magnolia Ice Cream, which is unexpectedly mired in the sixth spot with a 4-4 record. Just half a game away from Crispa, Burger Machine and Magnolia is Casino Rubbing Alcohol with a 4-5 mark. RC Cola (4-6) follows in eighth position while the seemingly-talented Pop Cola is at tailend with a dismal 1-9 slate.
The Sizzlers, which had racked up eight losses in going down in all of its first round assignments, apparently came to life in their first outing in the second round of eliminations with a stirring 77-75 triumph over league-leading Sta.Lucia just before the holy week break. It took a buzzer-beating jumper from Ramil Cruz to give Pop Cola its very first win in the tournament.
Eyeing a sweep of the second round to firm up its semifinals bid, Pop Cola sought win number two against the hamburger Pioneers in the first triplebill after Easter Sunday. The RFM five made up for a lackluster first quarter by turning up the heat in the second quarter as it narrowly took the half, 35-33
But A & W woke up in the third canto as rookie Wilmer Ong rattled off 10 of his 12 points in the period while the team’s stonewall defense curbed the Pop Cola offense to give coach Joe Lipa’s charges a gapping 13-point spread, 61-48, going into the final ten minutes.
With the versatile Pat Codinera and the shifty Boybits Victoria leading the offense, A & W maintained tis composure in the fourth quarter and paraded an 82-69 conquest of the Sizzlers at the end of the game. The hamburgers’ scoring was as even as can be, with Codinera leading with 13 points, Ong making 12, Victoria scoring 11, the pair of Mike Mustre and Jorge Gallent tossing in 9 points eachand Olsen Racela with 8 markers.
In the second game that afternoon at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium, RC Cola leaned on a last minute collapse of the Food Service Specialists to thwart Burger Machine, 82-79 in a closely-fought tussle, with the count at 79-all with 16 seconds left in the contest, Delfin Rizane followed up on a missed attempt by Benny Cheng to give the Super Coolers an 81-79 edge. In the ensuing Burger Machine inbound, ex-pro Lawrence Merced intercepted a pass which paved the way to a split from the free throw line by Genesis Sasuman. Another faulty inbound by the specialists sealed their fate and pegged the final tally.
In the third game, the Alcohol Makers made full use of Jojo Lim and Max Delantes in seeking revenge on their former team as well as added scoring sock former PBA players Carlito Mejos, Willie Generalao and Rey Yncierto to subdue Crispa, 72-63. Casino dominated the last three quarters to turn back the Cement Mixers, who only took control in the first quarter.
The elimination round of the Maharlika Cup is now on the crucial homestretch and if the upset trend holds on, it looks like the fans of the league are in for a round of exciting games.

Burger City’s record win
By: Jeffrey Cruz
June 8-14, 1989

For a long time there, Burger city and Agfa Color waged a furious struggle. But there could only be one winner, and in the end, the better, if not luckier team won. Bullish Stevenson Solomon tipped in a miss by teammate Arthur Ayson as time expired to lifted Burger City past Agfa, 120-119, last Saturday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.
The power-sucking encounter ushering the PABL Freedom cup had taken a record four overtimes and all of two hours and 45 minutes to complete. With nary a complaint of boredom from the engrossed crowd. They’ve just seen the pendulum of fortune at its swinging best and human endurance at its faltering limit.
Manny Elosida could have clinched the game for Agfa in the second overtime when he stepped into the charity stripe with four seconds left on a foul by Jojo Lim and Burger City ahead, 95-94. Elosida, however, sank only one of the two free throws awarded him. In the fourth extension, the Color Specilaists looked headed for victory when they led, 119-118, with barely 26 seconds to go. Agfa coach Egay Gomez ordered his wards to stall while Burger City mentor Mollet pineda instructed an all-out harassing defense. The Color Specialists were fouled twice but waived both trips to the free throw line.
Then came the Carlson Samlani blooper. An errant inbound pass by the former pro returned ball possession to the Burger experts, 13 ticks remaining. Spitfirish arthur ayson dribbled from coast-to-coast and drove right through the belly of Agfa’s defenses for a layup that rimmed out, only to be stuffed in by Solomon.
Solomon, who had only three points, suddenly became a hero. While Samlani, who had built that last Agfa edge on a medium-range jumper was transformed from hero to heel. Burger City followed up the pulsating triumph with a stirring 86-82 conquest of Philips Sardines Wednesday night and surge on top of the 10-team field.
Crispa, pouring the heat only in the final six minutes, tamed the fighting but raw Pampanga Selection, 92-82, and tied Invitational Cup runner up Sta.Lucia Realty, 83-81 victor over Swift Squeeze Drinks.
Favorite Magnolia was beaten by Philips, 102-98, also on opening Day. Other teams competing are Marsman of Davao, which dumped another provincial entry, United Bicolanos, 94-78, last Monday

Trivia:

Did you know that former PBA player Angelito "Itoy" Esguerra, after his playing years, became part of the PBL's roster of technical officers, and in the closing seconds of Game 2 of the 1991 Maharlika Cup Finals between Crispa and Mama's Love, Esguerra mauled and kicked a disabled utility boy of Mama's Love who allegedly threw a baby powder (or was it ice cube?) into the playing court causing a 20-minute delay. Had the hotheaded Itoy not left the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in a fast and lightning manner, he could have been confronted by at least five hundred Mama's Love supporters outside the stadium. the angry crowd could not stomach what he did to the limping utility man. and that Stevenson Solomon and Julian Rabbi Tomacruz even hunted him down to no avail.

The fact-finding committee headed by Elmer Yanga, later condemned Esguerra's act in full view of the paying public and gave him the option to resign or get fired.

When they dropped the "A" in the PABL and became PBL, they stopped the hypocrisy of being so-called an amateur league.

I think the reason we didn't hear or read anything about "trades" is because-- Players were usually signed to "one conference contracts" or "1 year/ 3 conference" contracts.

Hence, players were "free agents" at the end of each conference or season.

ESQ's Macaraya tops Caidic 3-Pt shot record

Forty days after Allan Caidic made basketball history by breaking the existing national 3-pt shot record in a single game with 12 triples during the ESQ Marketing-Lhuillier game in the 1986 PABL Invitationals, ESQ's Edgar Macaraya topped Caidic's record to establish a new national record of 14 triples. The record setting achievement occurred during the opening game of the PABL second conference Founder's Cup last Wednesday, August 6, between the ESQ Merchants and Country Fair Hotdogs, with about three and a half minutes left in the game and ESQ coach Nat Canson playing Macaraya the whole second half after he had matched Caidic's record of six triples in the first half, Macaraya notched his 12th 3-pt shot to match Caidic's record with plenty of time to spare, the Rizal Memorial crowd, realizing the possibility of Macaraya surpassing the existing record, cheered the former San Sebastian Stag and encouraged him to make the record-breaking feat which officially installed Edgar Macaraya as the king of the 3-pt shot. Macaraya finished with a PABL highest individual record of 48 points.

Mel
02-11-2014, 02:05 PM
this article is from that period...and I believe Chris Tiu later joined this team



With only Jervy Cruz, the former University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Most Valuable Player from University of Santo Tomas, as only marquee player left in the team, Abanilla strongly believes that Hapee Toothpaste—owned by industrialist and philanthropist Dr. Cecilio Pedro—has a good chance to win again.

Team manager Bernard Yang and Pedro’s top lieutenant Ding Salvador can attest to that, saying the growing excitement of the players is the result of Abanilla’s excellent rapport and motivating power.

“He’s a good motivator and very understanding to our players and that’s the reason why he easily got the respect of the team,” said Yang. “We hope he can help relive our happy days in the league.”

Hapee Toothpaste has yet to win a title since ruling the 2003-04 season although they made it to the finals in three of the last four conferences.

“It’s a tough task but we’ll be ready each game. We have a tradition to live,” Yang, the longest serving team official in the league, added.

Besides Cruz, Abanilla hopes to squeeze the best out of rookies Lance Covento and Joshua Vanlandingham—both blessed with a good shooting arm. The other new faces in the team are Bacolod’s Ely Olarte, Jeff Morial and Dave Najorda.

Dino Daa, Roel Hugnatan, Alfie Grijaldo, Anthony Espiritu will provide experience and the needed muscle in the shaded lane while Earn Saguindel and Jim Viray will supply the needed firepower and poise.
