I*strongly believe that this league's creation is an off-shoot of the SFAC*Doves' unceremonious removal from the last UCAA tournament. Don't expect to see the Las Pinas City-based school in the coming NCRAA wars as well.

Also, they should check their league name which is similar and confusing withh the United Central Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) which has a thread of its own in this forum.

Tss. I guess SFAC would never make it to the NCAA then. Parang BAP to, gawa ng gawa ng ligang walang patutunguhan. Excuse me for whatever my statement would suggest. ::)

Who's behind this league?

BAP-influenced ba ito? or is it SBP?

but i observe parang sa 2nd sem sila magsisimula ng maiden season nila, so therefore, wala silang representative sa PCCL.

and kung BAP-influenced league ito, ibig sabihin sila sila mismo nag aaway away, this is an off-shoot of the NCRAA na hawak ni Abundo who is a staunch BAP hardliner.

ibig sabihin din nito, multiple identities nanaman para sa mga teams na kasali. Member na sila ng NCRAA, UCAA or CUSA tapos ito pang isa UCLAA.

ano ba ito, paramihan ng liga na walang substance eh pwede naman na isang liga na lang.


Down with the BAP!!!

Deport Graham Lim Now!!!

Support the SBP!!!

Long Live Philippine Basketball!!!

St. Francis of Assisi College looms as the favorite to reign in the newest regional basketball league in the country – the Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) – which fires off Nov. 25 at the Makati Coliseum.

Having won six titles in its 17-year participation in its former league, host school SFAC, which has produced notable cage talents like brothers Yancy and Ranidel De Ocampo, is widely considered by nine other teams to be the front-runner in the newly-formed league which aims give schools from the different points of Luzon to be part of a recognized athletic association.

The nine other participating schools include Colegio De Sta. Monica in Las Piñas, De Ocampo Memorial College in Manila, Las Piñas College, Metro Manila College in Novaliches, National College of Business and Arts in Quezon City, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa, Philippine College of Criminology and St. Jude College both from Manila and University of the Philippines-Los Baños.

"Siguro ang magiging mahigpit naming kalaban ditto ay NCBA, De Ocampo and Las Piñas College. Sila kasi yung mga na-meet na namin sa ibang mga liga," SFAC coach Gabby Velasco said during yesterday’s press launching in a restaurant in Intramuros, Manila.

Among the first-timers in the big league include UPLB, which will try its luck when it plays for the first time outside the Laguna area.

"Since this is the first major league, we’ll just try to be as competitive as possible," UPLB coach Vir Marilag said in the same conference.

For Colegio De Sta. Monica coach Dandy Navarro, who has also a rookie team, their stint will be a valuable experience, saying: "Our school is only on its fifth year and our athletic operations started only January this year. Sa totoo lang, yung team namin pang junior pa. Pero we’ll try to be in the thick of the fight."

UCLAA season 1 officers were also inducted. Sworn in by Sapian, Capiz Mayor Arturo Orosca were Arturo Oñas, president, Ma. Angeles Prats, vice president, Rizalito Delmore, secretary, Francisco Quinio Jr. treasurer, Rommel Balancio, P.R.O. and Genaro Cuaresma, auditor.

* * *Just as I predicted more than a month ago, Saint Francis did indeed withdraw from the NCRAA and they managed to bring NCBA-Cubao along with them.

* * *This is also a bad sign for another college league, the CUSA, which did not hold competitions this first semester as usually scheduled.* We see five CUSA members in De Ocampo, LPC, MMC, PCCr and Saint Jude on the UCLAA roster.

* * *While the UCLAA seeks to have a Luzon-wide constituency, nine of the 10 teams are based in Metro Manila with UP-Los Banos as the lone provincial entry.* Saint Jude and NCBA though have campuses in Dasmarinas, Cavite and Taytay, Rizal respectively but their basketball team remains based in the Metro Manila mother campus.* Based on their initial press release, they had Olivarez College-Tagaytay but the team has apparently backed out.* Yes, the main Olivarez campus in Paranaque is part of the NCRAA.

* * *Saint Francis, Santa Monica, NCBA and Las Pinas competed in the UCAA, the NCRAA's first semester "sister" league.

* * *It is only Muntinlupa and UP-Los Banos that have not competed in any major college sports organization.

* * *Hopefully, the UCLAA will grow and sign up more schools from the provinces by next school year.

HOST St. Francis of Assisi College displayed its dominance inside the paint to overwhelm National College of Business and Arts 85-49 at the start of the Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association Tuesday at Makati Coliseum.

Rex Leynes led the Doves with 21 points while Raymund Ilagan chipped in 18 points.

“Very impressive and happy, it’s because of the excitement of the school being the host of this league and the team was able to translate it with a win,” said veteran coach Gabby Velasco, who gave the Doves six titles.

“We’re happy with our performance today, We’re able to execute what we did in practice, everyone went hard and did not relax,” said Leynes, who took over the position of star player Leo Losentes.

John de Guzman led the Wildcats with 12 points while center Samuel Razon contributed nine points.

“Poor, because we’re basically a young team, we lack experience and personnel and we were also not able to practice for two weeks because our gym is undergoing repair,” said National College of Business and Arts rookie coach Monel Kallos.

“I’m very positive that the team will bounce back and go to the championship and face St. Francis.”

There are 10 participating schools in the UCLAA:

Host school St Francis of Assisi College DOVES
National College of Business and the Arts WILDCATS
University of the Philippines at Los Banos MAROONS (apparently there is an "at" in their official school name, ala the UC schools in California)
Philippine College of Criminology ENFORCERS (where Lasalle's Brian Ilad came from)
Las Pinas College BLUE LIONS (formerly called the Huskies when Dennis Daa was still there)
Pamantasan ng Lunsod ng Muntinlupa MARSHALS
St Jude College CRUSADERS
Metro Manila Colleges BISONS
Colegio de Santa Monica COUGARS
De Ocampo Memorial College COBRAS

Yes indeed, the UCLAA was an offshoot of St Francis and NCBA bolting the NCRAA. Apparently there are leadership issues there pertaining to a lady who is notorious in the basketball circles. Art Onas of SFAC is the UCLAA President. Jojo Villa is the basketball tournament commissioner.

A couple of schools including the University of Baguio, the University of Bulacan. Lyceum of Batangas and Lasalle Dasmarinas are apparently on "observer status" and will join the association next year. And yes, this is a second semester league. They are under the SBP, thanks mainly to wanting not to have anything to do with the aforementioned lady.

Buo na ang Final 4 sa buena manong torneong pambusluan ng UCLAA sa pagkakapanalo ng De Ocampo Cobras at Las Pinas Blue Lions kontra Santa Monica at MMC ngayong araw sa San Andres Sports Complex sa Maynila.

Muntikan pang abutan ng Cougars ang Cobras sa unang laban ngunit masyado lang talagang malaki ang napundar na lamang ng mga bata ni Coach Toto Dojillo sa second half upang magwagi ang mga taga-ilalim ng Nagtahan 76 - 69. Kumamada ng 23 puntos si Allen Morales upang pangunahan ang Cobras, samantalang naka-16 puntos naman si Jay Bachicha para sa Cougars.

Sa panglawang sagupaan naman tila ginahasa ng sobrang buenas ang Blue Lions salamat sa isang freethrow ni Ron Kintanar. Sa dikdikang labanan nila kontra Bisons, talagang nagmuntik-muntikan ang mga taga-Timog Kamaynilaan. Sa tablang bilang na 65-all naka-dalawang pagkakataon pa sana ang MMC ngunit sadyang hindi nila naitakbo ang gusto nilang play. Na-foul nila si Kintanar na may dalawang saglit pang nalalabi. Sablay ang unang buslo ni Kintanar ngunit swak na swak naman ang pangalawa para sa 66 - 65 na panghuling talaan. Pinamunuan ni Marlon Pening ang LPC sa kanyang 20 puntos at si Jericho Puno naman ay naka-21 para sa MMC.

Umaatikabong bakbakan ang Final 4 kapag nagkita na ang De Ocampo kontra St Francis of Assisi samantalang ang PCCr naman ang makakatunggali ng LPC. Lamang sa twice-to-beat ang Doves at Enforcers gawa ng kanilang estado na waiting matapos ang eliminations.

Good luck to all Final Four teams. :)

De Ocampo Memorial College and Las Piñas College eked out close wins on Friday to barge into the semifinals of the first Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) at the San Andres gym in Manila.

De Ocampo made it past Colegio de Sta. Monica, 76-69, while Las Piñas nipped Metro Manila College, 66-65, to make the Final Four.

Allen Morales tallied 23 points while Cris Otacan made 11 for De Ocampo, which will take on host St. Francis of Assisi College in tomorrow’s semifinal round.

Marlon Pening topscored anew with 20 markers for Las Piñas, which arranged a Final Four meeting with elimination topnotcher Philippine College of Criminology.

Las Piñas also hurdled National College of Business and Arts, 79-55, last Jan. 28, in the stepladder quarterfinals before edging MMC.

SFAC downed De Ocampo, 65-53, in their previous encounter last Dec. 3. PCCr was similarly victorious, 59-58, over Las Piñas last Jan. 26.

Winners of tomorrow’s matches will dispute the first UCLAA cage title in a best-of-three series beginning Wednesday. PCCr and St. Jude College also open their junior titular series on that day.

Mang Inasal, Air21, Besuto prawn crackers, Villa De Oro Boracay, Magarbo, Magnolia, Basketbolista Magazine and www.gameface.ph are supporting the inaugural UCLAA season.

In the volleyball finals set to start Tuesday at the NCBA Fairview gym, St. Jude eyes two more titles in the men’s and women’s divisions.

St. Jude battles NCBA for the men’s championship while the women’s duel will pit the Mendiola-based squad against host St. Francis.

Philippine College of Criminology leaned on the hot shooting of superstar guard Arjay Dionero to eke out the close 59 - 58 decision over hard-fighting Las Pinas College at the San Andres Gym in Manila. PCCr thus became the first team to make the Finals of the UCLAA inaugural season men's basketball tournament.

The Enforcers took a 25-23 lead into the lemon time break in a poor-shooting first half for both sides. The Blue Lions however then opened the pivotal third period with a telling 12-0 run that brought boys from Las Pinas to the game's first double-digit lead at 35-25. PCCr suddenly went cold from the field and could not execute as Las Pinas tightened up on their halfcourt defense. They brought that up to 40-29 on the play-making of pointguard Jonas Kintanar and the transition attacks of swingman Rob Escatron.

Just as the game seemed well in hand for the Blue Lions and Dionero could not buy a basket, guard Julius Manalo suddenly came alive to knot the count at 40-all to start the payoff fourth period. A shootout then ensued as lead changes, single-basket leads and knotted scores became the theme midway through the quarter. Dionero and forward Mark Fraginal went basket for basket against Kintanar and center Mike Espa.

But with Las Pinas up 58-56 on an Escatron basket, Dionero nailed a long trey fom the right quarter court to push the Enforcers to the lead and the 59-58, time down to 14 seconds. Las Pinas set up one mroe play but couldn't find the bottom of the net for the final count.

In the second game, founding member and inaugural host St Francis of Assisi blew a 23-point first half lead and then watched Cris Otacan sink a desperation three-pointer form the top of the key clear off the glass, as upstart De Ocampo College forced a do-or-die game against the multi-titled Doves with the 72 - 71 cliffhanger.

Right at the opening tip it seemed the Doves would waltz their way to the Season 1 Finals against undefeated PCCr. Star guard Rex Leynes conspired with swingman Erwil Santos and powerful center Randolf Enrera to erect their first 20-point lead at 37-17 in the second period. De Ocampo played off-kilter and out of control as the Cobra guards could not set up their plays and kept failing to come down against the St Francis transition.

Things started to come together for the Cobras in the second half though as twin pointguards Mel and Will Tibay played the passing lanes, made of with several steals and got the De Ocampo transition going. Rio Flores nailed back-to-back layups to cut down the deficit to 65-58. It didn't help that St Francis suddenly started missing freethrows and insisted on feeding the post instead of going to the motion offense that built their huge first half spread.

Off-guard Narcy Cobacha knotted the count at 69-all with two pressure freethrows time down to 24 seconds and change.

Leynes drove hard to the rack on a beautiful staggered screen play to give th Doves the lead at 71-69 time down to a little over seven seconds.

Otacan got the inbound pass but could not find an open man as their play evaporated. He swung the ball to the middle and heaved up the Hail Mary play with the seconds winding away. The bank was open for Otacan just as time ran out.

Game 2 of the St Francis-De Ocampo playoffs will be this Saturday again at the San Andres Gym.

Sayang hindi matutuloy ang Battle of Las Pinas finals, maybe there's still next year.

Hopefully Dionero's exploit would get him a spot in a PBL team soon.

One thing I've noticed with the Final 4 teams in UCLAA: they have little size but they do have a ton of heart. Dionero and company kept their heads in it and just kept plugging away at the Las Pinas lead. Even when the Blue Lions went on that 12-0 run to start the third quarter they just played their game. They knew they didn't have much in terms of size and didn't force the ball into the post. They stuck with Manalo and Dionero from the perimeter and in transition, and you know what they say about shooters.

De Ocampo's Tibay twins and the rest of their perimeter also stuck with what they did best and were able to complete the Hail Mary play in the end. St Francis inexplicably went to a tired Rex Leynes in the end-game and he nearly salvaged the W for the Doves. Things might have been different had head coach Gabby Velasco stuck to his drive and draw plays with Enrero hanging around the baseline right under the basket. That's how they built up their big early lead, and that's how Leynes got his slashing and Santos his shooting going, with Enrero and Ilagan pounding the inside and providing rebounding coverage. When the Doves went to feeding the post straight up that's when they unravelled.

PCCr makes UCLAA finals
Daily Tribune
02/03/2009

A three-point shot put Philippine College of Criminology in the finals while De Ocampo Memorial College relied on another triple to force host St. Francis of Assisi College into a winner-take-all match for the second finals berth in the 1st Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) yesterday at the San Andres gym in Manila.

Arjay Dionero sank a triple with 14 seconds left to lift PCCr over Las Piñas College, 59-58, and into the best-of-three championship set to start next week. Dionero finished with a game-high 17 points while Julius Manalo backed him up with 15.

In the other semifinal game, Cris Otacan’s desperation triple heave just before crossing the midcourt found its mark to give De Ocampo a 72-71 squeaker over St. Francis. They will dispute the other finals berth on Saturday, also at the San Andres gym.

Rex Leynes had earlier scored on an inside stab to hand St. Francis a 71-69 lead, only seven seconds remaining. The host school applied pressure on De Ocampo but Otacan, who finished with six points, managed to weave out of the defense and sink the game-winner as the final buzzer sounded.

Rio Flores led all scorers with 16 markers and Mel Tibay added 13 for De Ocampo, which trailed by as much as 19 points, 50-31, halfway into the third period.

Host St. Francis of Assisi College made sure there won’t be any end-game lapses this time as it dominated De Ocampo Memorial College, 72-58, to barge into the best-of-three championship of the 1st Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association yesterday at the San Andres gym in Manila.

Starring the trio of Erwilson Santos, Rex Leynes and Raymond Ilagan who combined for 60 points, the Doves controlled most parts of the match to set up a championship clash with Philippine College of Criminology. The series starts on Thursday at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

Erwilson Santos coolly sank 10 straight freethrows all in the last two and a half minutes to lead multi-titled St Francis of Assisi College over stubborn De Ocampo Memorial College 72 - 58 in their knockout match at the San Andres Gym in Manila. Santos presided over an incredible 16-1 run in the end-game that completely turned things around for the Doves of veteran head coach Gabby Velasco.

Down by as much as 18 points at 37-19 late in the first half, St Francis looked headed for elimination in this inaugural season of the UCLAA. Rio Flores, Allen Morales and the Tibay Twins, Mel and Will, got off to a hot start, nailing the long jumpers and attacking relentlessly on transition to build up that huge first half lead. Santos, Rex Leynes and Mark Ilagan however chipped away at the big deficit by pounding the low post and going to the secondary break. Head coach Toto Dojillo's Cobras still took a 37-27 spread into the lemon time break.

In the second half St Francis dug deep and went on that searing rally. Leynes went to the basket hard on their early offense at every opportunity. Santos bombed away from the perimeter, Ilagan provided inside insurance with his offensive rebounding. A Santos trey midway through the payoff fourth period made it 55-56. An Ilagan layup finally gave St Francis the lead at 57-56, and it was all red and white from there.

St Francis will thus face unbeaten Philippine College of Criminology in the Best 2-out of-3 final series. The first UCLAA Basketball Finals will be at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum in downtown Manila on Thursday 12 February starting with the high school division Finals at 9:00 AM.

St. Francis of Assisi College’s air-tight defense worked wonders yesterday as it blasted Philippine College of Criminology, 77-52, to move within a win away from topping the 1st Universities and College of Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) seniors basketball tournament at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

From a tight 35-32 halftime lead, the host Doves limited the Enforcers to only eight points in the third quarter, including a mere basket in the last 4:20, to erect double-digit spreads which the Sta. Cruz, Manila-based PCCr never recovered from.

James Castañarez nailed a triple from the side in the 6:29 mark of the third period for the Doves’ first double-digit advantage, 46-36.

St. Francis goes for the clincher on Monday, Feb. 16, at the San Andres gym in Manila. If necessary, Game 3 will be played on Wednesday, Feb. 18 at the Pasay City Sports Complex.

In the juniors championship, PCCr routed St. Jude College, 86-70, to likewise near the inaugural season crown. Albert Francisco paced PCCr with 23 points and Rannel Marte added 16.

“Defense was the key and we will tighten it more next game,” said St. Francis coach Gabby Velasco. “We never relaxed even if we were leading by a big margin. We’ve learned from our past mistakes.”

Five straight points by Lex Leynes and a jumper from Erwilson Santos had St. Francis soaring to the game’s biggest lead, 75-50, only 50 seconds left in the match.

Four St. Francis starters scored in double figures, with Santos making 19 markers, Leynes 16, center Raymond Ilagan 14 and Jan Dulawan with 14.

Only Julius Manalo turned in a double-digit performance for PCCr with 11 points.

Inaugural host St Francis of Assisi College dealt Philippine College of Criminology their first loss of the season, and what a time for it to come: the Doves rolled over the Enforcers 77 - 52 to take Game 1 of the Best 2-out of-3 Finals and are now one win away from the first UCLAA senior division basketball title. PCCr had their 10-game season win streak snapped and must win Game 2 this Monday at San Andres to force a winner-take-all Game 3.

Rex Leynes completely outplayed Arjay Dionero in this battle of superstar guards. Leynes had eight points in a pivotal second period burst that gave St Frances their first lead at 24-23 as the Doves took a slight 35-32 edge into the lemon time break. Dionero for his part could not find the bottom of the net even though he was getting good looks. Pointguard Julius Manalo carried the cudgels for PCCr in the early goings. It did not help the Enforcers that center Mark Garcia got saddled with three first half fouls and had to sit out most of the second half.

In the third period center Raymond Ilagan split his charities to give the Doves their first double-digit spread at 46-36 and it was practically an all-St Francis show from there. Guard Jan Dulawan made it 66-48 midway through the payoff fourth period even as Manalo and forward Mark Fraginal tried to keep PCCr in the fight. Two Leynes drives made it 73-50, while hotshot guard Erwilson Santos gave St Francis their biggest lead at 75-50 with less than a minute left.

Santos led all scorers with 19 points to go with four steals and four assists while Leynes had 16 markers of his own. Manalo was the only Enforcer in double figures with 11. Dionero finished with nine points on 2-12 shooting.

Inaugural host St Francis of Assisi College won the first UCLAA senior division basketball title 70 - 57 over hard-fighting Philippine College of Criminology.

Star guard Rex Leynes exploded for 37 points to go with his five rebounds, four assists and two steals in a brilliant all-around game for the multi-titled Doves.

A trey by guard E-yes Santos gave St Francis their first double-digit lead at 39-27 early in the third period. The Enforcers had a tough time getting through the match-up zone defense of the Doves and struggled early on for points. Forward Mark Fraginal and guard Mac Pedroso carried the fight for the Enforcers in the early goings.

Leynes waxed hot in the payoff fourth period as he scored 10 straight points in a 15-0 run that gave St Francis their biggest lead at 57-35. Guard Julius Manalo came strong for PCCr in the end-game scoring his team's last eight points but it was too little too late.

Manalo led his side with 14 points. Star guard Arjay Dionero was totally out of it in these Finals as he was held scoreless, and was unable to help his team in other areas.

Center Raymond Ilagan was named tournament Most Valuable Player, narrowly beating out his teammate Leynes in statistical points.

St. Francis claims first UCLAA title
Updated February 19, 2009 12:00 AM
Philstar

MANILA, Philippines - Host St. Francis of Assisi College reasserted its mastery over Philippine College of Criminology, 70-57, to sweep the first Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) senior basketball championship at the Astrodome last Monday.

The Doves, behind Rex Leynes and Erwilson Santos, took charge early, fended off the Enforcers’ fightback in the middle quarters before cruising to the victory in the last period.

St. Francis, which took the opener, 77-52, held the Enforcers to their second lowest output this season. PCCr normed 75 points heading into the finals.

The junior PCCr team, meanwhile, routed St. Jude College, 86-68, for the crown.

St. Jude had earlier collared the men’s and women’s volleyball titles.

PCCr top gunner Arjy Dionero was also held scoreless in the first half while Leynes finished with a game-high 38 points, including 16 in the first two periods.

Mang Inasal, Air21, Besuto prawn crackers, Villa De Oro Boracay, Magarbo, Magnolia, Basketbolista Magazine and www.gameface.ph were the event’s backers.

St. Francis salvaged third place in the juniors division after dumping National College of Business and Arts, 81-65, while De Ocampo Memorial College took second runner-up honors in the seniors level, beating Las Piñas College, 64-67.

In the junior division of the UCLAA Season 1 PCCr claimed the title with an 86 - 68 victory over St Jude. Junior division MVP Jerome Rosal, a high-leaping 5'10" swingman who had a showtime dunk in the third period, conspired with forward Albert Francisco as the Junior Enforcers completed a full season sweep.

St Jude Forward Jerry Balansag who scored 39 points in Game 1 of the Finals succumbed to massive cramps towards the end-game and the Junior Crusaders could not make up for his absence. 5'9" forward Jeff Libunao however provided some consolation as he outdid Rosal's dunk with a two-handed vertical leap slam of his own.

Philippine College of Criminology - contrary to the expert prediction of tournament director Nilo Fernandez - upended Lyceum 60 - 54 in the ongoing Women's Metro Basketball Tournament Division A.

Down as much as 32-15 at the start of the third quarter, the Lady Enforcers could not match up against 6-foot-1 former Lasalle center and their current assistant coach Ros Flormata inside.

But Grace Quemada and former PMI superstar Janice De Guzman turned up the tempo in transition even as Stinelli Casakit found the range from beyond the arc to make it 47-41 midway through the fourth quarter. Flormata was neutralized by former RP Team mainstay Kat Garcia down low. Garcia used her superior athleticism to great effect in spite giving up at least five inches to Flormata. With Garcia collaring the rebounds and finding De Guzman, Quemada and Casakit for the outlet pitches, PCCr soon turned the tide.

Lyceum, the back-to-back WNCAA champion, was laughing it up earlier in the contest when they were up by double digits. By the final buzzer though they were hardly laughing and even went to the usual ridiculous exercise of questioning some calls by the referees. Letting yourselves get beaten in the end-game after building a big lead is no body's fault but one's own.

De Ocampo served notice to the rest of the UCLAA today: the Cobras walloped NCBA 83 - 49 in the ongoing FMC summer tournament behind a very balanced attack. Allen Morales led De Ocampo with 11 points while Jake Vista added 10; every player fielded by Coach Toto Dojillo scored. Bic Ilas was the only bright spot for NCBA as he led all scorers with 20 points.

Rio Flores, Narsi Cobacha, Cris Otacan, Morales and Vista will all return for the UCLAA 2nd Season in October. The wondrous Tibay twins are gone, but there are three forwards staning around 6'3" who will play for the Cobras of Dr Tony Boy De Ocampo, including the younger brother of PBL star Ronnie Matias.

It was all over in the second quarter. Ateneo B needed about 11 minutes to find its bearings before clobbering UCLAA powerhouse De Ocampo Memorial College 85 - 60 in the ongoing eliminations of the 16th Fr Martin Cup at the San Beda Gym in Manila.

Jake Vista and newcomer Jack Ramsey, a pair of half-negro forwards, teamed with pointguard Al Corpuz and swingman Narsi Cobacha as the Cobras slugged it out toe to toe with the Blue Eagles. De Ocampo ruled the opening quarter at 24-22 on a last-second alley-oop by star guard Rio Flores.

Ateneo adjusted soon enough and opened up the second quarter with an 11-0 run to storm ahead at 35-26 and De Ocampo would never recover from there. Holding the Cobras to only eight points in that quarter, Ateneo took the 46-32 lead into halftime.

At the end of the third quarter, the Blue Eagles had their largest lead at 70-45 thanks to three treys in that quarter by diminutive gunner Eman Monfort. Newcomer Mick Adornado, playing both guard positions, tossed in two three-balls of his own as the Blue Eagles found the range from the arc time and again.

Using mostly end-of-bench players throughout the fourth quarter, Ateneo still kept De Ocampo at bay. Ramsey, showing his frustration, almost got into a fracas with newcomer Paul Siarot in one sequence and then former Blue Eaglet star Carlo Balmaceda in another. Ramsey got nailed with a technical foul.

Monfort had a game-high 18 points, on six three-pointers, while Bon Jovi Cipriano had 10 with two three-pointers of his own. Nick Hubalde and Corpuz each had 10 for the Cobras.

any developments from this league?will this league's champion join the PCCL?

The UCLAA is currently conducting its preseason tournament. The eight participating schools are inaugural UCLAA champion Saint Francis of Assisi College, National College of Business and Arts, Manuel L. Quezon University, Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa, De Ocampo Memorial Colleges, Philippine College of Criminology, Central Colleges of the Philippines and FEU-FERN College (a.k.a. Far Eastern University Team B).

Most of the games are held at the San Andres Gym in Malate, Manila. Some of the schools take turns at hosting as some games have been played at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex and the CCP Gym along Aurora Boulevard.

The second season of the UCLAA will be played in the second semester later this year. All eight teams will be back plus some surprise additions.

Yes, UCLAA is affiliated with the SBP. The commissioner is Igmidio "Boy" Cahanding Jr., the only Filipino licensed FIBA commissioner. Of course, the referees are from the SBP.

As I recall a league / association must have held at least two regular tournaments over two consecutive years before being considered a regular member of the SBP. Although UCLAA is SBP-affiliated, the champion here has yet to be invited or seeded into the PCCL. We might also consider that UCLAA is a second semester tournament, and that the PCCL comes sometime in the second semester as well, so scheduling conflicts might come into play. I recall last year that Arellano had an NCRAA game in the morning and their PCCL Elite 8 game versus San Beda in the afternoon, and Arellano lost that game due to fatigue and exhaustion.

Coach Bang tumapat wanted dionero to shoot the ball even he already missed his ten shots... because he believes that was dionero's job... to shoot and score... like i said even he already missed his first ten shots.. you know what, and if they won the championship, i dont think dionero will be included in mythical 5... it will be manalo and fraginal.. nakakalunkot isipin na me mga players na nagpapakamatay para manalo ang team but walang compliments... even from their coaches...

When dionero played in juniors he was a shooter... and MVP of junior CUSA... he has talent but maybe not for senior division yet.. in senior you need to create, learn how to defend and many more... because seniors are the best of the juniors...

This team manage to compete without DIONERO, to SAN BEDA COLLEGE last summer in NIKE... You know what san beda is one of the dominating team... and they dont give mercy on that league... they even held MaDocs team scoreless in a single quarter... but SAN BEDA WON the game from PCCr with only nine points...

this team also beat a NCAA TEAM last summer in NIKE... UPHDS.... and UPHDS never taste the lead in the entire game, they did it without dionero and another main man Fraginal .. only their 2years veteran Manalo left and some other rookies, sophomores and reserves.

this team has a great teamwork... they dont mind if they dont one of their key player, this still gonna play as a team.

Game 1: NCBA versus De Ocampo

Host NCBA and Season 1 Final 4 contender De Ocampo squared off in one of the best opening games in the entire collegiate basketball calendar.

All throughout the first half it was a contest between the veteran lineup of De Ocampo and the hustle-and-heart squad of NCBA.

In the first period, forward Allen Morales and guards Rio Flores and Chris Otacan led the charge for De Ocampo. Otacan waxed hot from long range, Morales was strong in the lane, while Flores was attacking the basket with fast drives and breaking out in transition.

NCBA Team Captain John Rey De Guzman and rookie Jong Cubo kept the host school in the fight with constant outside shooting. De Ocampo closed out the first period ahead 20 – 16.

A contest of wills and attrition ensued in the second period. De Guzman knotted the count at 22-all with a clutch three-pointer. Big man Dax Castellano soared in for a transition layup to give NCBA the lead at 24-22. De Guzman, Castellano, center Mark Duran, forward Mac Reyes and guard Jon Merano kept up the pressure to keep NCBA in the lead.

Coach Ron Dojillo’s boys were missing badly even though they were rebounding well, allowing NCBA to put together a few mini-runs. De Ocampo however fought back as Otacan nailed another triple to make it 38-all late in the second period. Forward Mac Lascano tied the game up anew with a short jumper to beat the halftime buzzer. It was 40 – all at the half.

NCBA started out hot in the third period, racing to a 49-42 led behind Castellano, De Guzman and Cubo.

De Ocampo came back with a 7-point cluster courtesy of tough guy forward Mark Berry. Berry, a transferee from National University and former UAAP player, nailed back-to-back layups to tie the game at 49-all midway through the third period. Another Otacan three-pointer put De OCampo back in the lead at 52-49. It was Berry’s hard work in the third period however that spelled the difference. De Ocampo was up 58-53 after three quarters.

Once the payoff fourth period got going, the action got even tighter. NCBA buckled down heavier on defense to choke the De Ocampo offense. Pointguard Mac Macalalad brought NCBA within 57-58 to start the quarter. Castellano made it 63-all with a good shot in the lane. A Cubo three-pointer restored the lead to NCBA 66-65.

De Ocampo tried to fight back to come within 69-70 in the last two and a half minutes. Miscues, bad shots and even a few bad bounces however blunted the De Ocampo rally. Pointguard Jon Torrente nailed pressure freethrows to seal the NCBA victory 74 – 69.

Cubo, a renegade from the newly-formed Fatima varsity, had a heck of a debut for NCBA with 15 points, while Castellano added 12.

Otacan had 14 points to lead De Ocampo, including four three-pointers, while Morales added 13 and Berry 12 points with 11 rebounds.

Game 2: MLQU versus PCCr

Manuel L Quezon University had quite an intimidating introduction into the UCLAA – they won the first UCLAA Preseason tournament about a month and a half before joining the regular season. In this second game of opening day they proved they are for real.

Taking on Season 1 second-placer PCCr, MLQU started strong behind the veteran duo of forward Jopher Custodio and guard Mark Tamayo. Tamayo easily ran rings around the relatively smaller guards of the Enforcers, even as Custodio asserted his might in the lane. MLQU took an easy 16 – 9 lead to end the first period.

In the second period, it was swingman Jun Vasquez and guard Jon Manalili’s turn to shine with Tamayo and Custodio resting on the bench. They ran the score up to 20-9 on a variety of strong layups in the paint against the faltering PCCr defense. Another Vasquez basket made it 26-12 as he also employed jackrabbit rebounding, prompting PCCr to sue for time in the face of the MLQU onslaught.

PCCr just could not come up with a solution for the strength and athleticism of the MLQU side. PCCr could not run its usual plays, and they were being forced into bad shots and miscues by the strong MLQU defense. With Vasquez at the helm, MLQU went into the halftime break with an imposing 43 – 25 lead.

In the third period it was practically an all-MLQU show as the lead went as high as 51-29. Custodio and Tamayo had returned and they were joined by the timely hits of guard Jon Manalili. With MLQU hitting on all cylinders there was very little that PCCr could do.

Veteran PCCr pointguard Julius Manalo and swingman Jun Pelayo tried to bring PCCr back into the fight. They were not getting much help from the rest of their teammates though. Even veteran forward Mark Fraginal was absent, missing shots and unable to rebound. Although they made a little headway, the MLQU lead stayed between 11 and 14 points throughout the third period.

In the payoff fourth period, PCCr made one last desperate run to try and turn the game around. Pelayo, Manalo and pointguard Jack Jacinto attacked the inside and slashed fearlessly into the paint. A Jacinto three-pointer made it 65-73 late in the fourth period as MLQU sued for time. That was about as good as it got though, as Custodio and Manalili took turns dousing the PCCr rally. MLQU eventually took home the 77 – 67 victory.

Custodio and Manalili led all scorers with 17 points each, with Custodio also hauling down 10 rebounds and taking best player honors. Pelayo and Manalo each had 15 for the Enforcers.

Game 3: MMC versus Muntinlupa

In the last senior game of opening day, it would be another lopsided affair, as two teams who barely missed the Final 4 last season tangled: Metro Manila Colleges and Pamantasan ng Lunsod ng Muntinlupa.

All throughout the first half it was practically an all-MMC show. MMC came out strong behind the veteran trio of guard King Go, forward Mart Danao and center Raffy Puno. The Bisons of Coach Florian Pineda, using tough defense and quick transition, easily took the first period 25 – 8.

In the second period it was more of the same. It seemed the Marshals of Coach Rommel Balancio just could not get a break. Although Boss Racal, Mark Crespo and Jun Masaday tried to keep up with the Bisons, they just had too many errors and gave up too many easy shots. Halftime had MMC ahead 37 – 26.

Crespo and Masaday however would put together a searing rally once the third period rolled around. A Crespo three-pointer broke the double-digit barrier at 39-30 for the first time since the opening period. Another Crespo triple made it 41-33 as Muntinlupa built up some momentum. Masaday hit a good shot to bring it all the way down to 43-37 as MMC sued for time.

Danao however nailed back-to-back triples while the MMC defense tightened up anew as the Bisons broke away again 59-42 late to close out the third period.

In the payoff fourth period, Muntinlupa simply broke down. MMC raced to its biggest lead at 66-44 behind the inside incursions of Puno, the sniping of Danao and the playmaking of Go and the other MMC guards. Masaday, Crespo and Racal kept plugging away but simply could not sustain any momentum. MMC had the runaway 73-56 victory.

Danao had 16 points for MMC while Puno had 12 points and 10 rebounds. Masaday had a game-high 20 points, Racal added 14, while Crespo had 10.

Game 4: NCBA versus St Francis (Juniors)

In the lone junior division game host NCBA took on St Francis. It was practically an all-NCBA show as the Junior Wildcats upended the Junior Doves.

St Francis started strong as they went to 6-foot-4 Jun Repuya inside. With the tall lefty scoring inside, NCBA found the early going tough.

Soon enough though, NCBA found their rhythm in transition behind the fleet-footed trio of 6-foot-3 Aylon Pineda, 6-foot-1 Jimmy Favila and pointguard Pocholo Alcantara.

Favila, Pineda, Vargas and strong boy Mike Diomeda erected the biggest NCBA lead at 73-55 late in the payoff fourth period. NCBA would go on to the runaway 78 – 64 victory.

Favila had an opening day-high of 27 points to lead NCBA, while Pineda added 20.

Enriquez led St Francis with 24 points and Repuya added 12 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks.

Quarterfinal action in the ongoing Fr Martin Cup Division II was cardiac all throughout yesterday at the San Beda gym in Manila.

St Francis, still unbeaten after nine outings, needed five extra minutes to outlast JRU B 73-66. Freethrow woes saw rgulation end at 59-all.

NU B leaned on the heroics of Rey Parks to pull out the 71-66 win over hardfighting St Benilde B. Parks rained all five of his treys in the second half to lead all scorers with 39 points.

EARIST upended UE B in overtime 85-77. Roy Sumang, a one-man gang for the B Warriors, forced the extension with key baskets to knot regulation at 67-all.

Lasalle B rode the backs of comebacking LA Revilla and Norbert Torres to hang on for the 64-63 win over erstwhile unbeaten TIP.

Semifinal action is this Wednesday at San Beda in Manila, with NU B going against St Francis, and Lasalle squaring off against EARIST. Games commence at 1:30 PM.
