Question: Does participating teams have a free hand in choosing their line-up? Or they are forced to submit the same line-up as their mother league? Can they replace an injured player?

MANILA, Philippines—University of Santo Tomas tries to make up for its fifth-place finish in the UAAP wars as the Tigers gun for a wild-card slot in the FilOil Flying V “Sweet 16” Final Challenge starting Wednesday at the Makati Coliseum.

The Tigers, who struggled in the UAAP even with a formidable lineup led by Jervy Cruz and Dylan Ababou, open their campaign against the St. Claire Saints in a noontime clash that is part of a heavy four-game bill.

Four wild-card berths for the two zonal competitions of the Smart-PLDT-KFC Philippine Collegiate Champions League are at stake in the short, eight-team tournament.

The Tigers have been grouped with St. Francis of Assisi, Las Piñas College and St. Claire, while the other bracket is composed of Emilio Aguinaldo College, STI College, De Ocampo and Lyceum of the Philippines.

The top two squads from each bracket will gain the wild-card berths.

The curtain-raiser at 9 a.m. pits EAC against De Ocampo with Lyceum tangling with STI in the next match at 10:30 a.m.

St. Francis takes on LPC in the last match at 1:30 p.m.

PCCL national tournament director Joe Lipa said four zonal championships have been set with the top two teams in each zone advancing to the finals.

The Tigers are hoping to become the third UAAP team to clinch a place in the Sweet 16.

The early finalists in the tournament’s final phase include UAAP titlist Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles, NCAA champion San Beda College Red Lions, De La Salle University Green Archers, Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, University of Visayas Green Lancers, San Sebastian College-Cavite Baycats, Manuel L. Quezon University Stallions and the Universal College of Nursing Golden Dragons.

The Far Eastern University Tamaraws are already entered in the zonal phase.

University of Santo Tomas overcame a sluggish performance in the first half to defeat NAASCU fourth-placer St Clare College of Caloocan, 80-71, yesterday in the Wild Card phase of the 2008 Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship at the Makati Coliseum.

Francis Allera led a strong second half assault for the España-based squad which played without star players Jervy Cruz and Japs Cuan to take its first win in the three-day Wild Card phase.

Allera, who has already completed his playing years in the UAAP this season, finished with 22 points, 19 of them coming in the second half while reserve center Chris Camus recorded 13 points.

Dylan Ababou, Clark Bautista and Mark Canlas made 11 points each to highlight the team’s well-balanced attack.

“Wala kami sa kundisyon dahil halos ilang araw lang kami nag-ensayo,” admitted UST head coach Pido Jarencio. “Pero kahit one-point, two-points or 20 points pa yan, a win is a win.”

“Gusto din namin umabot sa Sweet 16 para kahit papaano masaya din yung mga graduating players,” he added.

The Growling Tigers will be without Cruz, Cuan, Canlas, Camus, Chester Taylor and Mel Gile next season.

Aries Parinas, the Rookie of the Year winner, led the Saints with 25 points while Edu Mustre added 10 points, including a buzzer-beating three that gave them a 42-41 halftime lead after trailing by 11 points late in the first period.

A basket by Richmond Sibal gave the Saints their last taste of the lead, 53-51, until Camus, Ababou and Bautista connected on consecutive triples to put UST on top for good, 60-53, with 1:15 remaining in the third.

Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University survived the strong challenge of NAASCU runner-up STI College to score an 88-86 win.

Joseph Araya and Glen Taguiba led the team with 19 and 14 points, respectively.

The Pirates rallied mightily from a 75-85 deficit but bungled a potential game-tying shot.

In other games, UCAA runner-up Emilio Aguinaldo College defeated De Ocampo College, 80-70, as Julius Quiambao made 26 points for the Generals, while Las Piñas College trounced St. Francis of Assisi, 62-53.

The tournament will be a single round robin with the top two teams of each group qualify for the zonal tournament set next month.

The top two teams in the four zonal phases will advance to the Sweet 16 tournament on November 24 joining Ateneo de Manila, San Beda College, University of the Visayas, De La Salle, Jose Rizal University, San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite, Universal College of Nursing and Manuel L. Quezon University

Tigers scramble past Saints
By Francis Ochoa
Philippine Daily Inquirer

GAMES THURSDAY (Makati Coliseum)
9:00 a.m.—EAC vs. Lyceum
10:30 a.m.—De Ocampo vs. STI
12:00 p.m.—St Clare vs. Las Pinas College
1:30 p.m.—UST vs. St Francis

MANILA, Philippines—Against a team that hammered out one of the most stunning upsets in history, sluggish and practice-deprived University of Santo Tomas needed a pair of trey-aided runs in the second half to keep itself from falling victim to a shocker.

The Tigers, getting key baskets from beyond the arc when they needed it most, held off the St. Clare Saints, 80-71, at the start of the wild card phase of the Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship Wednesday at the Makati Coliseum.

Francis Allera and Clark Bautista combined for 11 points built around three triples that gave the Tigers a 75-61 spread in the final period and helped move UST to within a win of at least a tie for one of two slots in their group that will get tickets to one of four zonal competitions next month.

But judging from how the Tigers looked Wednesday, that win may be tough to clinch.

“We’re out of shape,” coach Pido Jarencio said in Filipino after the victory. “We basically only had three days to prepare for this tournament.”

UST started out strong in the first period to take a 20-9 lead. But the sluggish Tigers kept throwing the ball, allowing the Saints to rally. The Tigers trailed by a point at halftime, 41-42, and, early in the third, crammed three turnovers in a 20-second stretch.

But Chris Camus, Dylan Ababou and Clark Bautista hit their triples late in the third as UST started peeling away, 61-53.

St. Clare is known in basketball circles as the team that snapped University of Manila’s amazing 86-game winning streak in the most dramatic way possible—Dennis San Pedro hitting a three-point heave from mid-court at the buzzer for that historic 81-80 victory three years ago.

Allera led five UST cagers in double figures with 22 points.

Aries Pariñas finished with a game-high 25 points for the Saints, who are coached by basketball legend Jimmy Mariano.

In other games, Emilio Aguinaldo College downed De Ocampo, 80-70, while Lyceum, riding on the heroics of Joseph Abuya, watched STI’s Mark Cabangon miss a short stab at the buzzer to hang on to an 88-86 triumph. Las Piñas College, meanwhile, waylaid St. Francis, 62-53.

Lyceum of the Philippines University earned a berth in the zonal phase even as University of Santo Tomas bagged its second straight win in the resumption of the 2008 Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship wildcard tournament at the Makati Coliseum.

The Pirates, who were among the 16 teams who participated in last year’s tilt, pulled away in the fourth quarter to defeat UCAA runner-up Emilio Aguinaldo College, 86-80, while the Growling Tigers dumped St. Francis of Assisi College in a tension-filled 64-51 triumph.

The victories enabled both teams claim top spot in their respective divisions heading into today’s final day of hostilities with UST needing a win against Las Piñas College to reach the next phase.

“Yung quickness talaga naming sa both ends ang nagpanalo sa amin,” said Lyceum head coach Bonnie Tan. “Masaya kami na makakapasok ulit kami sa next phase ng tournament.”

Edgar Difuntorum topscored with 21 points while Joseph Abaya added 17 markers as the Pirates pulled away from a slim one-point lead with under seven minutes in the game.

An 11-1 blast in a span of three minutes gave LPU an 81-70 lead as Difuntorum hit six points during that telling run.

Jon Santos led the Generals with 15 points with Julius Quiambao adding 12 markers.

On the other hand, Dylan Ababou recorded a game-high 30 points as UST, who finished a disappointing fifth in the recent UAAP season, led by a high of 19 points in the final canto, 56-37, after sailing through with a comfortable lead during the first three quarters.

St Francis, who captured the UCAA title in 2007, managed to trim a large margin into seven, 58-51, on a triple by Jan Dulawan with 2:19 left only for Ababou to convert a trey on the following play that virtually sealed the win.

A minor altercation with 35.2 seconds left in the game led to the ejection of UST big man Mel Gile and St Francis’ James Castanarez and Rex Leynes.

Leynes led the Doves with 19 points while Dulawan chipped in with 17 markers.

Meanwhile, St Clare College of Caloocan kept its hopes of making the zonals alive when they defeated LPC, 74-68, as southpaw guard Edu Mustre scored 25 points.

The Saints, fourth-placer in the NAASCU tournament, made a booming 25-1 run to end the second quarter as Mustre scored 23 points during that said burst.

Point guard Red Nacianceno added 14 points for St Clare while Blue Lions big man Sereno Cunial scored 20 points in a losing cause.

In another match, STI College forced a virtual rubber match with EAC for the final Group A slot in the zonal phase with a convincing 76-65 rout of De Ocampo Memorial College as Ramon Mabayo led the NAASCU second placers with 19 points.

GAMES FRIDAY (Makati Coliseum)
9 a.m.—STI vs EAC
10:30 a.m.—Lyceum vs De Ocampo
12 noon—St. Francis vs St Clare
1:30 p.m.—UST vs Las Piñas College

MANILA, Philippines—Speedy Lyceum of the Philippines University broke away from Emilio Aguinaldo College in the fourth quarter to tally an 86-80 victory Thursday and return to the zonal phase of the 2008 Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship League wild-card tournament.

The Pirates’ second win in as many outings overshadowed the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers’ 64-51 conquest of the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves in the last game of a quadruple header at the Makati Coliseum.

Though UST, which is trying to atone for its disappointing fifth-place finish in the UAAP, carries a similar 2-0 slate, it still needs to hurdle Las Piñas College on Friday to reach the 16-team next phase.

With Edgar Difuntorum hitting six points in a telling 11-1 run in a three-minute span in the fourth period, the Pirates stormed ahead, 81-70. The Generals fell to 1-1.

Thriving on fastbreak plays, Difuntorum wound up with 21 points while Joseph Abaya chipped in 17 markers for the Pirates of coach Bonnie Tan.

“Yung quickness talaga namin sa both ends ang nagpanalo sa amin (It was our quickness on both ends that enabled us to win),” said Tan. “Masaya kami na makakapasok ulit kami sa next phase ng tournament (We’re happy to enter the next phase of the tournament).”

Former Philippine Youth player Dylan Ababou tallied a game-high 30 points as UST led by as many as 19 in the final canto, 56-37.

St. Francis, winner of last year’s UCAA title, moved within 58-51 on a triple by Jan Dulawan with 2:19 to go, but Ababou answered with a trey to quell the rally.

An altercation in the last 35.2 seconds led to the ejection of UST big man Mel Gile and St. Francis’ James Castañarez and Rex Leynes, the Doves’ topscorer with 19 points.

St. Clare College of Caloocan, drawing 25 points from southpaw guard Edu Mustre, kept its zonal bid alive with a 74-68 win over LPC.

STI College dumped De Ocampo Memorial College, 76-65, to forge a virtual rubber match with EAC for the last Group A slot in the zonals.

Ray Gamboa, chief of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League, formally launched the PCCL last night at the Collegiate Basketball Awards Night of the UAAP and NCAA Press Corps. Inquirer sports writer and assistant editor Jasmin Payo hosted the event on behalf of the Philippine Sportswriters Association. Gamboa spoke concisely but accurately on the philosophy and principles behind the national collegiate championships, explaining the various benefits of the tournament not just for the participating schools but also for Philippine basketball in general. "We are looking forward to truly making this tournament an institution," Gamboa declared in an interview before he spoke on stage.

SBP President and Smart Chair Manuel V Pangilinan also stated that the award winners that evening - JV Casio, Chris Tiu, Rabeh Al-Hussaini, Jason Ballesteros and Nigerian Samuel Ekwe might just be on the next national team that will be seeing action in the 2010-2011 qualifying tournaments of FIBA for the London Olympics. "We want to see all of the best young players form the core of national team that hopefully will represent the Philippines in the London Olympics in 2012, that is why we are very excited to see all of the best young players here tonight," said Pangilinan in an interview after the ceremonies were over.

Pangilinan doubles prize money in Collegiate meet

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Manny V. Pangilinan has raised the stakes for next month’s Philippine Collegiate Championship League after disclosing that he will match the prize money given to the top four winners of the annual event.

Pangilinan said during the 2008 Collegiate Basketball Awards last Tuesday night that the additional money will be given to the team’s and the winning coach in order to give the PCCL more interest.

"We doubled the money so that the teams would fight for that kind of money and also to make the league more interesting," Pangilinan said.

The PCCL gives cash prizes in support of the sports developments and scholarships of the winning schools. R500,000 will be given to the champion team, R200,000 for the runner-up, R100,000 for the third placer and R50,000 for the fourth-placed team.

"A national championship of this magnitude is very taxing and very costly," said PCCL chairman Rey Gamboa. "But it takes time and effort for the teams to pass through this process so we lined up with a number of prizes and grants."

Gamboa added that the champion team will represent the country in the 2009 Universiade Games in Serbia.

Ateneo de Manila captured the PCCL title last year after trouncing CESAFI champion University of the Visayas in the finals.

Several teams from 25 mother leagues around the country fought have in several qualifying rounds for the zonal phase set next month in Manila, Ormoc City and Cagayan de Oro City.

The top two teams from the four zonal tournaments will fill out the remaining eight slots in the Sweet 16 tourney set on November 24.

Ateneo, UV, NCAA champion San Beda College, De La Salle, Jose Rizal University, NAASCU titlist San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite, Manuel L Quezon University, and UCAA winner Universal College of Nursing have been given outright slots.

The PCCL said that it is either the UCAA or NCRAA champion that would represent the Sweet 16 but its should be logical to have the UCAA titlist in the Sweet 16 because it is synchronized with the schedule of the other leagues. And besides, the FMC should not be a part of the PCCL.

As for Lyceum, yes they should be included in the PCCL dahil wala naman talaga silang nirerepresent na liga.

Ganito yan, bata.....

Yung mula sa PCCL mismo ay para sa paaralan. Walang nakakaalam kung aabutan ng paaralan ang coaches at players ng kahit maliit na bahagi mula sa prize money na ito.

Yung ibibigay ni MVP ay nakalaan mismo para sa coaches at players.

Malaking incentive yan para sa team, lalo at papalapit na ang pasko pag natapos ang torneong ito.

Kung marapat bang bigyan ng cash prizes ang mga bata at coaches nila can be made a point of argument for the hypocrites who say that being student-althletes they shouldn't be getting such cash prizes.

Sa akin, they deserve it, kahit sino pa ang manalo.

For so many years, the schools and other people have benefited from the achievements of these kids. They are literally walking advertisements for their schools and nagpapalaki sa ego ng mga kung sinong mga mapapel.

Isipin mo, ang isang magaling na line-up generates so much free media mileage for the school and its sponsors. I-suma total mo ang ginagastos para sa team - scholarship, food and lodging, etc. barya lang yun kung paaralan mismo ang gagastos para sa media mileage nakukuha nila. Simply, ga-milyon ang halaga ng press na nagmumula sa mga magagaling na team, barya lang ang gastos sa team kung ikukumpara.

Sabi ni MVP para sa team mismo ang pera. Sa players at coaches.

Marapat lang!

Never mind the zoning and how the teams ended up in the wild card. The thing is, if the team "gifted" with a slot doesn't win, they won't progress anyway.

I think one issue they have to address is "conflict of interest" or "delicadeza" in terms of sponsorship. They all know that MVP supports 2 schools included in the competition and yet they took in Smart and PLDT as sponsors. And now comes this additional cash flow he'll give to winners.

WNC will be in the Zone 3 qualifiers for the PCCL in Ormoc Nov 9-12. It is interesting that fellow Zone 3 entry USJ-R struggled in Dumaguete. WNC beat USJ-R 74-66 and now emerges as Bracket B favorites in Ormoc. The Jaguars will have vengeance in mind when they meet again soon. That should be war out there in the Ormoc Superdome.

Sharp UE overpowers EAC, shoo-in for PCCL hoops 'Sweet 16'
11/03/2008 | 05:34 PM


MANILA, Philippines - Pari Llagas scored 23 points and the University of the East Red Warriors used a late scoring binge to rout the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals 92-74 in the Luzon zonals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League basketball tournament Monday at the Makati Coliseum.

The Warriors didn't trail in the match but they were up by only 73-69 at the 6:11 mark of the fourth. UE launched a 19-5 scoring blitz to pound the Generals into submission.

The Luzon zonals are divided into four groups with UE, EAC and Saint Clare bunched in Zone 2-Group B.

Other groups include: University of Luzon, Mapua and Lyceum-Batangas in Zone 1-Group A; Santo Tomas U, Saint Louis (Baguio) and Arellano in Zone 1-Group B; and Don Bosco Mandaluyong, University of Nueva Caceres (Naga) and Lyceum (Manila) in Zone 2-Group A.

The teams which come out on top in each of the four groups advance to the PCCL Sweet 16 slated next month.

In other games, Arellano, the National Capital Region Athletic Association champion, made short work of Saint Louis University 82-36 while University of Luzon defeated Lyceum-Batangas 79-62.

Orlando Daroya led Arellano with 22 points and 12 rebounds. Norman Ilao's 21 points and 14 rebounds paced Luzon U.

"We have a difficult time playing EAC because we're basically the same size," said UE coach Dindo Pumaren, whose Warriors need to beat Saint Clare in their next game to advance.

James Martinez, whose back-to-back three-pointers made it 80-69 in favor of UE with 3:53 to go, finished with 19 points, four assists and three steals.

Elmer Espiritu added 13 points, three steals and two blocks for the Warriors, who missed big man Hans Thiele (fractured right foot).

Eight teams have already been seeded into the "Sweet 16", led by University Athletic Association of the Philippines finalists Ateneo de Manila and De La Salle and National Collegiate Athletic Association finalists San Beda and Jose Rizal University.

San Sebastian-Cavite, the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities champion, Manuel L. Quezon U (Colleges and Universities Sports Association), Universal College of Nursing (Universities and Colleges Athletic Association) and University of Visayas (Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc.) were also given automatic berths in the PCCL final tournament.

Besides the four teams which will advance from the Luzon zonals, two teams each from the Visayas and Mindanao legs will earn slots in the "Sweet 16". - GMANews.TV

University of the East, University of Luzon and Arellano U hurdled their respective rivals yesterday to move a win away from sealing their berths in the “Sweet 16” of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Makati Coliseum.

The Warriors rode on a big run down the stretch to outlast the upset-conscious Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, 92-74, while Univ. of Luzon cagers, the Region II titlists, smothered the Lyceum-Batangas side, 79-62.

The Chiefs, on the other hand, showed too much class and power against the Baguio City-based St. Louis U quintet, 82-36.

The victories thus moved the three teams closer to the tournament proper where they would join the first eight qualifiers – all champions in their respective leagues headed by UAAP’s Ateneo and NCAA’s San Beda.

The winner in the national finals will gain a berth in the 2009 Universiade in Serbia.

The tournament, sponsored by Smart, PLDT, KFC, Flying V, Fil-Oil and The Philippine STAR, is also putting up P500,000, P200,000 and P150,000 in scholarship grants with an extra P500,000, P200,000 and P150,000 in cash for the first, second and third placers, respectively, courtesy of telecommunications main man Manny V. Pangilinan.

UE coach Dindo Pumaren, whose wards need to beat St. Claire on Thursday to clinch a Sweet 16 spot, said he’s satisfied with the win considering they have yet to practice as a team since the conclusion of the UAAP cage season.

“To tell you honestly, this is the first time we played as a team since the UAAP,” said Pumaren, who is missing the services of Marcy Arellano (no-show) and Hans Thiele (fractured foot).

Pari Llagas, James Martinez, Elmer Espiritu and Raffy Reyes stepped up in the absence of Arellano and Thiele by firing 23, 19, 13 and 10 points, respectively.

The Chiefs, who also won the Fr. Martin Cup three times, said they hope to sustain the momentum of their rout against the St. Louis cagers when they face the heavily favored Santo Tomas Tigers, the 2006 UAAP winners.

“All we want is a win that would give us some positive thoughts when we face UST on Thursday,” said Arellano mentor Leo Isaac.

Orlando Daroya exploded for 22 points to lead the Legarda-based cagers.

University of Luzon, meanwhile, squares off with Mapua, which made it to the Final Four in the 84th NCAA season, tomorrow.

St Clare College of Caloocan bowed to UCAA powerhouse Emilio Aguinaldo College in the second day of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League zonals at the Makati Coliseum 65-62.

The Saints went up by as much as 10 points in the first half behind the scoring of 5-foot-10 swingman Mark Mustre and the play-making of 5-foot-7 pointguard Chester Opalia. But the Saints failed to continue on their march when 6-foot-4 NAASCU rookie of the year center Aries Parinas had to sit down early in the second period due to three personal fouls. 6-foot-3 power forward Jun Manio and 6-foot-5 center Ryan Borja tried to hold strong in the post when Parinas sat down.

EAC however leaned on veteran 6-foot-5 center Alain Musni's strength inside and the scoring of 5-foot-9 guard Argel Mendoza and 6-foot-2 forward Ace Quiambao. Musni used his veteran wiles to hold his position inside and get the tough rebounds and the post-up opportunities against the relatively leaner St Clare frontline. Mendoza and Quiambao went toe to toe against the St Clare perimeter.

In the third period 5-foot-8 guard Red Nacianceno, Opalia and 5-foot-10 guard Roy Coronel broke out on transition to bring St Clare back from a 32-36 deficit and go up 39-36. Parinas also came back and controlled the defensive boards apart from getting some inside scoring against the EAC interior; more importantly Parinas stayed away from foul trouble without sacrificing his defense.

The payoff fourth period however was touch and go with EAC busting out to knot the count at 62-all coming back strong from a 55-46 deficit. "Tiyagaan lang sa depensa," said one EAC assistant coach. With only 49 seconds left Musni split his charities to give EAC a 63-62 lead. St Clare bungled a chance to knot the count or grab back the lead when 6-foot-3 forward Richmond Sibal muffed two freethrows in the return play.

Musni sank two more freethrows for the final count, even as St Clare couldn't bungled at least two attempts to turn the outcome around.

Quiambao had 19 points to lead all scorers while Musni had 13 points and 11 rebounds. Parinas had 18 markers, 12 boards and two blocks for the Saints.

Erstwhile longtime head coach Nomar Isla resigned and was no longer on the bench. Isla resigned after EAC's African import - 17-year old 6-foot-6 forward-center Emanuel Mbe - decided to transfer to Coach Pido Jarencio's Santo Tomas University. Mbe was no longer with the team when they competed in the Uni Games in Dumaguete last week, although the talented African was still with the Generals during the wild card phase.

MIT did win earlier today over Lyceum so their game against UL will pretty much decide which team advances to the S16.

In other news, it's going to be Arellano vs. UST for another spot unless St. Louis-Baguio learn how to play basketball at this level. Also Don Bosco and Lyceum Manila is going to be big as well as the former needs just another win to advance... UE is pretty much set with that whopping win over EAC.

In the Mbe-EAC-UST case, I think what UST should've done, was to make some amends to EAC to keep too much bad blood from the whole incident. Like, for example, donate athletic equipment. Or send the EAC Coaching Staff to respected basketball seminar abroad. That is what other schools have reportedly done in other cases. It is a win-win situation: UST gets the player, and EAC gets to improve their basketball program in some way. With this model in use, you could see an improvement in basketball programs trickling down even to the lesser known schools in the country.

TG Guillermo and Ian Mazo stepped up and combined for 32 points as Mapua waylaid University of Luzon, 77-59, yesterday to clinch the ninth spot in the “Sweet 16” of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Makati Coliseum.

Guillermo scattered 18 points while Mazo tossed in 14 points as they took over for the Cardinals, who hardly missed the services of 2007 NCAA MVP Kelvin dela Peña, who is now in the PBA.

“We needed someone to take charge in place of Kelvin,” said Mapua coach Leo Isaac. “At least in this game, we saw players who stepped up.”

The Cardinals thus joined the eight early qualifiers, all champions in their respective leagues including the UAAP’s Ateneo and the NCAA’s San Beda, in the main draw.

Mapua will play College and Universities Sports Association titlist Manuel Luis Quezon U in the first round.

University of Santo Tomas, the 2006 UAAP champion, and Lyceum, meanwhile, posted their first wins in the first of a series of qualifiers to stay in the hunt.

The Tigers, backstopped by several PBL standouts, overpowered the St. Louis dribblers from Baguio City, 102-52, while the Pirates outlasted the Don Bosco boys from Mandaluyong City, 87-79.

Badong Canlas, Jeric Fortuna, Chris Camus and Jackson Wong each fired 11 points while Emilian Vargas chipped in 10, enabling the likes of Dylan Ababou, Chester Taylor, Kashim Mirza and Francis Allera enough rest for their crucial match with Arellano U today, a knockout duel.

The tournament, sponsored by Smart, PLDT, KFC, Flying V, Fil-Oil and The STAR, is staking P500,000, P200,000 and P150,000 for the first to third placers in scholarship grants. Another P500,000, P200,000 and P150,000 in cash are also up for grabs courtesy of telecommunication boss Manny V. Pangilinan.

GAMES SUNDAY (Ormoc City Superdome)
5 p.m.—Opening Ceremony
5:30 p.m.—West Negros vs USJ-R
7 p.m.—Letran vs AMA Computer

MANILA, Philippines—University of the East, Arellano University and Lyceum-Manila took similar routes to the Sweet 16 of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship zonals at the Makati Coliseum Thursday.

Arellano marched into the elite group after stunning 2006 UAAP champ University of Santo Tomas, 69-59, in their knockout duel in Group B.

Orlando Daroya pumped in 32 points on top of 10 rebounds and five steals to power the Chiefs, who opened up a 28-15 lead in the first half.

The Warriors will clash against perennial Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. champion University of Visayas after topping Group D by crushing St. Clare in a 108-80 victory marred by a choking incident.

UE rookie Lucas Tagarda fired 19 points and eight steals in the match where St. Clare assistant mentor Rey Ariola got ejected for physically assaulting a referee in the fourth period.

Lyceum-Manila will tackle UAAP champion Ateneo de Manila University next following an 81-60 rout of Bicol’s University of Nueva Caceres in Group C.

The Chiefs of coach Leo Isaac arranged a Sweet 16 match against Universities and Colleges Athletic Association titlist Universal College of Nursing just a day after Isaac’s NCAA squad Mapua Institute of Technology secured a top 16 berth.

The champion in the national tournament backed by Smart Communications Inc. and PLDT and supported by KFC, Flying V and Fil-Oil will bag a P1-million total cash prize and represent the country in the 2009 Universiade Games in Serbia.

PCCL Zonals starts in Ormoc City today
Sunday, November 9, 2008
The Freeman

ORMOC CITY — The Area 3 Zonal Elimination of the Philippine Collegiate Championship League (PCCL) starts today in Ormoc Superdome.

Colegio de San Juan de Letran, a powerhouse NCAA team from Manila, leads all entries in the tournament that runs until November 12.

The other participants are Cebu’s University of San Jose-Recolotes (USJ-R), first runner-up in the 2008 CESAFI tournament, Bohol Institute of Technology, West Negros College from Bacolod, and Region 8 champion AMA Computer Learning Center of Ormoc City.

The champion and runner-up in this tournament will join16 other collegiate teams in the PCCL finals in Manila slated in the middle of this month.

Ormoc City Councilor Ruben Capahi, the chairman of the committee of sports, said the city is prepared for the staging of the tournament. He further said that the tournament is a very significant development for basketball enthusiasts in the city because the games will be played on “another level,” as some of these visiting players have already showed their talents in the PBL.

Al Aberca, the city sports coordinator, echoed the city’s preparedness and added that the superdome is ready for the tournament as well as the officials that will handle the games.

As of this writing, however, only Letran and AMA Computer Learning College had arrived in Ormoc. Teams from Bacolod, Bohol and Cebu are all stranded in Cebu because of the weather.

The FREEMAN learned from Ormoc City officials that if the other teams won’t make it to Ormoc, the opening of the tournament will push through with a game between Letran and AMA Computer Learning Center.

Courtside seats cost P30, lower box is P20 and general admission is only P10 for the first two days of the tournament. The prices of tickets, however, will increase to P50, P30 and P10, respectively on the third and fourth days of the tournament.

Patron tickets with special seats are available for P500. —Robert C. Dejon

Night Game 2: Letran def. UC - 86-76

USJ-R pulled away in the last quarter... The 2nd game was very much exciting because of the Visayan crowd heavily favoring somewhat of an underdog and their fellow Visayan of course, UC... sigh, sabagay ugaling Pinoy na talaga ang kantyawan pati hitsura ng players... UC led by as much as 7 pts in the 2nd quarter, 29-22 but Fajardo picked up a 3rd personal foul in the late 2nd quarter and Letran was able to snatch the lead again... Fajardo further got into foul trouble early in the 3rd quarter picking up his 4th foul and had to be sidelined for the rest of the 3rd quarter... Gomez lost his 3-pt touch in this game...

Crossover will be:
Letran vs. West Negros University
USJ-R vs. UC

AMA and BIT-IC are the ones eliminated in their respective brackets...
AMA lost to powerhouses Letran and UC while BIT-IC lost to WNU and USJ-R

bakit may crossover pa eh hindi naman ganun yung sa zones 1 and 2


May i directly quote Mr. Rey Gamboa on this one:


The zonal format at Visayas (being played at Ormoc City) and Mindanao (to be played at Cagayan de Oro City) is slightly different from the Luzon zonals (held in Makati). This is to give provincial collegiate basketball fans the opportunity to watch more games particularly those of visiting teams from Manila and Cebu. This is in line with PCCL objective of promoting collegiate games in the provinces. This objective was considered in designing the format of this nationwide-based tournament.

Again, we all go back to logistics. Not that i entirely agree with it because i feel that there should be one and only one format for all zonals for a fair competition. Maybe in the future this can be addressed and ironed out. But for now it is clear what the "slight" difference's purpose was/is.

Come to think of it, "fair" on this end is unfair because they all have seen the format used in the Luzon Zonals. But if we flipped the situation, it might as well be the Luzon qualifiers that can also be whining because the second-place teams in their respective brackets did not have a chance of advancing because of the format used in their zone while the Vis-Min teams second placers got that second lease on life by applying that crossover format.

Again, to avoid issues of being fair and such the PCC should look into it and just apply the same format across all zonals.

The crowd in Cebu is very different compared sa Manila. College teams in Manila have the strongest line up pero iba ang crowd sa Cebu, mas passionate sila sa basketball, kahit anong league iba ang support nila. I saw it personally during my vacation sa Mactan where I stayed sa Tambuli beach resort. My Cebuano friend brought me sa game ng UV at USJR and wow, no match and cheering sa Manila. I also saw a game between commercial teams in one of the local leagues there and again, grabe ang crowd parang nanunuod ka ng football match sa England sa sobrang ingay.

Letran, UC lead Visayas winners
By Jonas Terrado
Manila Bulletin

Letran and University of Cebu scored convincing wins at the start of the Visayas interzonal phase in the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship Sunday at the Ormoc Superdome in Ormoc City.


The Knights, who made in to the Final Four of the 84th NCAA season, crushed hometown squad, AMA Computer Learning Center, 96-65, while the Webmasters, fourth-placer in the CESAFI tournament, pummeled AMA, 101-60, behind the effort of 6-foot-7 big man Junmar Fajardo.

Both teams are currently facing each other as of presstime to determine which squad will take top spot in Group A.

The winner of the Letran-UC tiff will meet the second-ranked team in Group B while the top team of Group A will battle the loser of the other game.

Meanwhile, CESAFI runner-up University of San Jose Recoletos, bannered by star guard Luke Justiniani, defeated 10-time NOPSSCEA champion West Negros University, 88-77, in the tournament’s opening game last Sunday.

Despite the defeat, the Mustangs were able to bounce back yesterday when they crushed BIT-International College, 90-62, to end the elimination round with an even 1-1 record.

A win by the Jaguars against BIT-IC will earn them and West Negros a spot in today’s semifinals. Both are also playing as of presstime.

The two finalists in this phase will advance in the Sweet 16 of the event presented by SMART, PLDT, FilOil Flying V and KFC.

NCAA champion San Beda, NAASCU titlist San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite, De La Salle and Jose Rizal University are the remaining teams that have yet an opponent.

Mapua Institute of Technology and Arellano University are the top two teams in Zone 1 while University of the East and Lyceum of the Philippines bagged the spots in Zone 2.

Game 1: Letran def. WNU - 90-78
Game 2: USJ-R def. UC - 95-87

Fajardo was fouled out in the middle of the 4th quarter... During the first half UC was in command, lots of 3-pters inside the floor... they led by as much as 14-15 pts i think... but USJ-R slowly crept during the 3rd quarter when again, Fajardo needed to be sidelined for collecting his 4th foul... USJ-R actually gained the lead in the 3rd quarter and there was no turning back...

Games tomorrow:
3:30PM AMA vs. BIT-IC
5:30PM UC vs. WNU
7:30PM Letran vs. USJ-R

All-Cebu war
www.sunstar.com.ph

THINGS had not worked out as planned for the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) schools University of San Jose Recoletos Jaguars and the University of Cebu Webmasters after the two teams absorbed contrasting fates in the Zone 3 championships of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League Monday night at the Ormoc Dome in Ormoc City.

The USJ-R Jaguars, the Cesafi runners up handily trounced Bohol Institute of Technology International College,98-74 but the UC Webmasters bowed to the Letran Knights, 79-88.

Because of this, the two Cebu teams found itself pitted against each other in the cross-over semifinals. Only the two finalists in the zonals will advance to the main draw of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League.

“We were hoping that both teams will qualify to the PCCL if only both USJ-R and UC made it to the final round. But since they have to eliminate each other out in the semis, then at least we are assured that one of them will surely make it to the nationals,” said Cesafi commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy.

The Jaguars made use of a balanced offensive and its trapping defense to run away with the easy victory.

“It was easy because only one person was scoring for the opponent. He scored more than 40 points that our statistician no longer tallied his points because he ran out of space in the scoresheet,” said USJ-R guard Jabe Delfino.

Delfino was referring to BIT’s center Ferdinand Lusdoc, who starred BIT’s one-man show as he scored 44 points for the team.

Pacing the team against BIT were USJ-R’s veterans Luther Justiniani and Randy Pogoy, who scattered 19 and 15 points respectively, while Jemar dela Peña added 11.

The winner between USJ-R and UC will book a sure slot to the PCCL final list or the Sweet 16, where it joins another Cebu team, University of the Visayas, which gained automatic entry by virtue of winning the Cesafi title.

The winner between the two teams will face either West Negros University or Letran in the zonal finals.

Cesafi third-placer, University of San Carlos, will also get its shot to make it to the Sweet 16 when it embarks on its bid in the Zone 4 championships this weekend in Cagayan de Oro City. (MCB)

Fajardo, a member of the CESAFI Mythical Team, topscored for the Webmasters with 23 points even as Janssen Abella and Robinson Mohamad scored 15 and 10, respectively.

Jaguars make PCCL Sweet 16
www.sunstar.com.ph

THE University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) booked a slot to the Sweet 16 of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League following a masterful 95-87 win over compatriot University of Cebu Webmasters Tuesday night at the Ormoc Dome in Ormoc City.

The Jaguars struggled at the start but their championship experience allowed them to keep their cool that despite losing two players to injuries, they still prevailed over UC, which squandered a good lead when it crumbled at endgame.

With the most-coveted slot to the main roster of the PCCL up for grabs, UC, which finished at fourth place in the recent Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi), showed its prowess early in the game and built a 10-point advantage, 25-15, in the first period.

Upset

The Jaguars, the runnerup in the Cesafi, could not seem to contain the rampaging Webmasters who managed to keep them at bay and still owned the period enjoying a seven-point lead going into the final half, 45-52.

The game would have headed for an upset had USJ-R not recovered in time.

The Jaguars finally showed their championship experience to finally wrest the lead from the Webmasters, 67-66 for the first time in the game.

However, it came at a cost.

USJ-R lost Jan Malinao after he was rushed to the hospital for stitches for figuring in a clash with a fellow Jaguar, while Kurt Amores badly sprained his ankle

Still, the Webmasters displayed a never-say-die attitude and challenged USJ-R until the 6:30 mark, when they last held USJ-R to a deadlock at 71.

When its pivot man Junemar Fajardo had to be benched for fouling out, UC found itself without a go-to-guy and its perfectly sturdy offenses completely fell apart.

Luther Justiniani led USJ-R’s cause with 26 points, while Jabe Delfino added 15.

USJ-R was to face the National Collegiate Athletic Association powerhouse Letran Knights in the zonal finals at press time last night.

Letran easily trounced West Negros College, 70-85. (MCB)

USJ-R ousts UC to reach PCCL last 16 stage
Thursday, November 13, 2008

Cebu’s University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars and NCAA’s Letran Knights secured a slot into the Philippine Collegiate Champions League Sweet 16 after ousting their respective rivals the other night at the conclusion of the PCCL Ormoc Zonals at the Ormoc Superdome.

The Jaguars clawed the University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters, 95-87, in an all-Cebu knockout match,* *while the Knights, third placer of the 84th NCAA season behind three-peat champion San Beda Red Lions and Jose Rizal University, crushed the West Negros University, 70-58.

Thus, the Jaguars and the Knights made it to the PCCL Final 16 that will be completed after the Cagayan de Oro qualifying round this week. The University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers gained automatic slot being the reigning CESAFI champion.

The Jaguars and the Webmasters were still at each other in the final 6:30 of the contest when the score was tied at 71-all, but the early exit of 6-foot-8 giant June Mar Fajardo on fouls took its heavy toll on the UC side. (GGM)

Jaguars, Knights gain Sweet 16 slots
By Cedelf P. Tupas
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—Letran College kept its bid alive in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League Visayas zonals as the Knights clinched a spot in the Sweet 16 by trouncing the West Negros U Mustangs, 70-58, Tuesday night at the Ormoc Superdome in Ormoc City.

Finding enough energy after surviving a physical contest with University of Cebu, 86-74, Monday night, the Knights used a balanced attack led by skipper RJ Jazul to break away from a tight contest in the third quarter.

University of San Jose-Recoletos also claimed its place in the Sweet 16 by downing UC, 95-87, in an all-Cebu semifinal showdown.

The Knights and Jaguars were to play for the zonal crown Wednesday night.

The Jaguars became the second team from Cebu to move into the Sweet 16, after the University of the Visayas Lancers advanced at their expense in last month’s Cesafi finals.

USJ-R couldn’t solve UC’s torrid outside shooting in the first half as the Webmasters buried nine triples in the first half to grab a 52-45 lead at the break.

But June Mar Fajardo, the Webmasters’ 6-foot-9 center, was hobbled by foul trouble and fouled out with 6:20 left, opening up the shaded lane for USJ-R big men Jan Malinao, Jerome Villaver and Jabe Delfino.

The Webmasters got a break when Malinao left the game with a gash on the head following an accidental collision with Delfino.

Already in the Sweet 16 are UAAP titlist Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, University of the East, Lyceum of the Philippines, San Sebastian College-Cavite, Manuel L. Quezon University and Universal College of Nursing.

FEU Tamaraws, USC open PCCL bids
By Lynde Salgados
www.sunstar.com.ph

MANILA's Far Eastern University and Cebu's University of San Carlos are favored to hurdle their opening game assignments in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League which fires off here Friday at the Xavier University gym.

The FEU Tamaraws battle Ateneo de Zamboanga while the USC-Cebu takes on homegrown pride Capitol University in a double-header which starts shortly after the 5 p.m. ceremonial tip-off to be attended by Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar S. Moreno, Cagayan de Oro 2nd district Congressman Rufus Rodriguez and former mayor Rey Baula of Sumilao, Bukidnon.

Erstwhile Cagayan de Oro College standout JR Cawaling, who already made an impact in the UAAP Games, gets the chance to play before hometown fans as he spearheads the FEU's quest for the regional final slot slot in the PCCL's Zone 4 qualifier.

"It's exciting to watch him play here again. We're proud to have local talents like him excel in the UAAP," said Gerardo "Boboy" Sabal, athletics director of Xavier University, referring to the versatile Cawaling who has physical semblance with Air 21's ace forward Arwin Santos.

On Saturday (Nov. 15), Cawaling and the fancied Tamaraws will face the challenge of host Xavier University Senior Crusaders top-billed by the likes of GB Tagarda, Bee Datinguinoo, JP Erram, Julian Bagares and Paul Siarot. It will be followed by an equally interesting match between the USC and Davao's University of Mindanao.

"Of course, I'll be rooting for my former team in college. With the FEU going here to play is like a trip down memory lane," mused Anton Pabillore, who used to play back-up guard of Johnny Abarrientos with the FEU Tamaraws.

Sanctioned by the BAP-Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, the PCCL aims to discover basketball talents left untapped in the corner due to lack of opportunity and exposure.

Former PBA chairman and Pilipinas Shell Executive Ray Gamboa heads the list of organizers with former National Coach Joe Lipa as the tournament director.

Each team gets to qualify in the PCCL through the local qualifiers such as the UAAP, NCAA, Cesafi, Cosaa and the like.

Winners of the local qualifiers play in the Regional Finals and the Regional winners advance to the Zonal Finals.

The top 2 teams in the 4 Zonal Championships will then join the 8 seeded teams to compose the "Sweet 16".

Zamboanga Champions Ateneo de Zamboanga University, Davao Champions University of Mindanao, UAAP 3rd placer FEU, CESAFI (Cebu) 3rd placer University of San Carlos, COSAA champion Xavier University and Wild Card entry Capitol University will be slugging it out for the Zone 4 Championships.

Knights nip Jaguars, top PCC Visayas
By Cedelf P. Tupas
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—RJ Jazul buried a layup with barely a second left as Letran College completed a stirring comeback from 17 points down to nip University of San Jose-Recoletos, 82-80, Wednesday night and conquer the Visayas zonals of the Philippine Collegiate Championship at the Ormoc Superdome in Ormoc City.

The Jaguars from Cebu looked headed for an upset win as they led, 80-74, with less than a minute left, before Jazul came to life with a couple of game-turning plays and made the Jaguars pay for their poor free throw shooting.

A Dino Daa split and Reymar Gutilban’s three-point play following four missed free throws by USJ-R sliced the lead, 78-80. Jazul tied the game at 80 from the charity stripe with 20 ticks left.

Jazul grabbed the rebound on Manny Gabas’ flubbed free throws, rushed down court and nailed the winning basket as time expired.

“Our defense in the fourth quarter really spelled the difference,” said Letran coach Louie Alas.

The Knights will meet the San Sebastian College-Cavite Baycats in the Sweet 16, while the Jaguars drew NCAA champions San Beda Red Lions.

Jazul pumped in 15 points to match Daa’s output while Jan Malinao and Luther Justiniani finished with 22 and 20, respectively for the Jaguars.

Two more slots to the Sweet 16 will be contested starting Saturday in Cagayan de Oro City, where University of San Carlos, Far Eastern University, Xavier University, Ateneo de Zamboanga, University of Mindanao and Capitol University will be playing.

USJ-R got a lot of respect for nearly beating Letran, but now we see USC losing to an unknown school like Capitol University?

CU shocks Cebu's San Carlos in OT
By Lynde Salgados
www.sunstar.com.ph

THEY might be the underdog in the six-team field, but the Capitol University (CU) showed a lot of heart on Friday's nail-biting tussle with Cebu's University of San Carlos University at Xavier University gym in Cagayan de Oro City.

Just a wildcard entry in the ongoing Philippine Collegiate Champions League, the CU Stallions made it sure upset will mark the PCCL Zone 4 qualifier's opening day action by overpowering the SCU Webmasters USC Warriors in overtime, 87-84.

Top favorite Far Eastern University (still locking horns with host Xavier University Crusaders as of presstime) fashioned out a lop-sided 105-55 win over Ateneo Zamboanga in the opener.

CU's Stephen Go stood as the nightmare for the Cebuanos' heart-breaking debut when he sizzled for a game-high 39 points that mattered the most in overcoming the Stallions' twin-digit deficit in the early goings.

"Go was at his best scoring element as knocking off those big numbers is a thing that you would always take pride to remember," enthused XU's assistant coach Arvin Martinez.

"Showing big fighting heart is a quality that CU coach Jonas Molawan can be proud of his intrepid Stallions. They really worked hard all-night long to earn the victory," added XU athletics director Gerardo "Boboy" Sabal.

The Webmasters Warriors, who finished third in Cebu's Cesafi, controlled the pace most of the way, leading by as much as 11 points. Complementing Go's gigantic effort that broke the game wide-open in the fourth quarter, Estroga made a clutch basket with time ticking away to force overtime.

It was a big Stallions show in the extension period as the foursome of Go, Estroga, Baja and Tinoy continued to run the offense from outside for a complete reversal of fortune .

Far Eastern University survived a gallant stand by home team Xavier University, 77-71, to enter the crossover semifinals unbeaten in the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship Mindanao zonal phase at the Xavier University gym in Cagayan de Oro City Saturday night.

The Tamaraws silenced the boisterous crowd as Mark Barroca, Jonathan Fernandez and Paul Sanga came through with clutch baskets in the payoff period to seal the win.

FEU finished the single round elims with a perfect 2-0 record and will meet the second-ranked team in Group B.

In the first game, University of San Carlos recovered from a shocking 87-84 defeat to host Capitol University by crushing University of Mindanao, 81-51.

The Warriors, who finished third during the recent CESAFI tournament, ended the elims with an even 1-1 record while UM would need a win over Capitol to force a three-way logjam for third. Both teams are playing as of presstime.

Also meeting as of presstime are Group A squads Xavier and Ateneo de Zamboanga, who lost by 30 points to FEU last Friday. The winner will advance to the semis against the top team in Group B.

A win by Capitol University over UM will automatically give the host squad the top spot in Group B.

The semifinal winners of the event presented by PLDT, KFC and Smart will enter the Sweet 16 to be held next Monday at The Arena in San Juan.

Rumble at XU Gym
By Lynde Salgados
www.sunstar.com.ph

A FREE-for-all rumble has spoiled Sunday night's penultimate action of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League at Xavier University gym in Cagayan de Oro City.

Although the on-court brawl involving the players and coaching staffs of Xavier University and Ateneo Zamboanga did aggravate the XU Crusaders' stained reputation as local "bad boys" in basketball, it did help a lot to change the momentum of what billed as the deciding game of the night.

Just trailing by a point, 42-43 before the bench-clearing fracas occurred with still four minutes and 18 seconds to go in the third quarter, the home squad was able to regain its bearing as it managed to outscore the now intimidated Zamboangueños in the same quarter, 21-12, and proceeded to dominate the fourth and final quarter to win the match, 80-61.

Ateneo Zamboanga earlier controlled the first two quarters at 15-14 and 24-20 with the streak-shooting Miguel Delos Santos bewildering the favored charges of coach Rocky Calingin with a barrage of treys.

Delos Santos, whose father and coach Bobbidic had figured in a heated altercation with Calingin that proved to be the last straw for igniting the melee, finished the game with 22 points laced with six three pointers.

Emotions flared up when XU's Bee Datinguinoo was fouled hard while playing the post. Shoving, pushing and trash talking then followed with the head coaches of the two teams unable to hold their feelings.

"That incident was really regrettable for we can gain nothing from it. We can beat Zamboanga in any normal circumstances. In fact, we're at a disadvantage kon na-suspended pa `mi wala nay dula sa Manila nga mapa-abot in the event nga modaug `mi sa crossover round ugma sa gabii (Monday)," Gabriel "GB" Tagarda, who paced XU scorers with 19 points, told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

The PCCL Zone 4 qualifier's crossover matches were still played as of this writing Monday (5 to 7:30 pm) with the unbeaten top-seed Far Eastern University against number 4 Capitol University and number 2 XU Crusaders opposite number 3 Cebu's University of San Carlos.

Former national coach Joe Lipa, the PCCL tournament director, has confirmed Tagarda's fear on the possible aftermath of the incident.

Lipa said had the XU-Zambo tussle was aborted, he would not hesitate to suspend the warring teams and be banned for the rest of the PCCL tourney.

"Coaches should not forget their responsibility to the crowd who deserves utmost safety while being entertained. Paano na lang kung `mi mangyaring stampede dahil sa kaguluhan," said Lipa in also reminding XU athletics director Boboy Sabal who quickly embraced the youthful coach Calingin, former mayor of Claveria town, Misamis Oriental, upon his first impulse during the Crusaders' inaugural match with FEU Tamaraws.

"Gabantay ko pirme to prevent any untoward incidents ni-una man sab gud og panumbag ang pikas (Zambo)," Sabal later told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

It was the second time around the Crusaders gets indulged in a physical confrontation at the same venue.

Perhaps, the only big difference was that the Crusaders lost to Capitol University Stallions in their riot-marred championship match early this year. Calingin's assistant coach was also meted with disciplinary action in that incident.

Wild card entry CU Stallions, despite losing to Davao's University of Mindanao (74-83) on Sunday's nightcap tussle, still made it to the top-4, owing to the UM Wildcats' inferior tiebreak points. UM beat CU by 9 points, but USC Webmasters defeated the Wildcats by 30 points, 51-81.

Both CU and UM finished the eliminations game with 1-1 win-loss slate.

Survivors of Monday's crossover matches will play in the Zonal Finals. The top-two winners in the four Zonal Championships will then join the eight seeded teams to compose the PCCL's so-called "Sweet 16".

The score:

XU Crusaders 80--Tagarda 19, Datingguinoo 10, Yaranon 8, Siarot 7, Erram 7, Simon 6, Dahilan 5, Contreras 5, Cabanes 4, Bagares 2, Besinga 0, Sol 0.

Ateneo Zamboanga 61--Delos Santos 22, Ramiso 14, Galea 9, Herbano 5, Alfaro 4, Sakinani 4, Lao 4, Wee Sit 2, Barandino 1, Sabban 0, Guingona 0, Pacatang 0, Candado 0, Avila 0.

XU VS. USC

University of San Carlos started strong in the 1st Quarter as they rode to a 3-13 run behind Padillo's 3/3 shooting from the 3pt line. They extended their lead to 13pts when Hermosa converted a reverse lay-up and a bonus freethrow when he was fouled by Tagarda of XU. Xavier answered back with 2 straight baskets ending the Quarter 8-16 in favor of USC Warriors. Early in the 2nd Quarter, Xavier U cut USC's lead down to 3 with 7:42 remaining in the Quarter as they scored 5 straight points. From their, both teams traded baskets but USC was still in the lead 17-22 with Hermosa scoring the last 6pts for USC. With 1:02 remaining in the half, Joven of USC stole the ball and converted a lay-up extending their lead to 9. Once again, Xavier answered back with 4 straight points courtesy of Ampuan's back-to-back baskets, cutting the lead to 5 and ending the Quarter 24-29 in favor of USC. In the 3rd Quarter, Xavier rallied back from 5 pts down and rode to a 7-2 blast to tie the score 31 all with 7:48 remaining in the Quarter, but USC countered back and scored 6 straight points, once again regained the lead 31-37. With 5:35 minutes remaining in the 3rd, it was Xavier's turn to make a run and scored 8 straight points, the last 3, courtesy of Jan Siarot scoring a basket plus a foul, and Xavier got their first taste of the lead 39-37 with 4:32 left in the Quarter. Xavier ended the Quarter strong, making a 6-2 run, ending the Quarter 51-47. In the 4th Quarter, the game became more intense, and just when all people thought Xavier was already in control of the game, USC scored 9 straight points with Gallardo and Joven converting 3 straight 3 point baskets, and USC regained the lead 59-61 with only 3:46 left in the final Quarter. Xavier began to rattle and they couldn't buy a basket as the Warriors defended them well w/ their pesky man-to-man defense. USC then scored 4pts in their next 2 possessions extending their lead to 6 with only 1:48 remaining. From there, Xavier continued to struggle including in the free throwline and Xavier kept on fouling USC and hoped that they will miss their freethrows but Pallardo and Joven converted 4 out of 8 freethrows for USC and they were in the lead 63-68 with 0:10 seconds remaining in the game. Xavier then called a timeout and JP Erram converted a 3pt basket at the right corner cutting the lead to 2 with only 3 seconds left in the game. Then they immediately fouled Joven but he sanked 1/2 in the freethrow line leading by 3, 66-69, with 1sec left in the game. In the final possession, Xavier missed a desperation shot from the halfcourt and the USC Warriors won the game 66-69.

Congratulations USC Warriors! :)

Far Eastern U and Univ. of San Carlos came away with victories in varying fashions to clinch the last two berths in the Sweet 16 of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship.

The Tams routed the Capitol U Stallions, 106-49, while the USC Warriors survived the tough Xavier University Crusaders, 69-66, at the close of the Mindanao zonal games.

The Tamaraws will thus face the Jose Rizal U Heavy Bombers in the first round of the knockout phase in the Sweet 16 while the Warriors will square off with the La Salle Green Archers in the tournament presented by Smart, PLDT, FilOil Flying V and KFC.

The other teams in the national finals are UAAP teams Ateneo and UE and San Beda Letran and Mapua in the NCAA.

For the first time in the Champions League, the CESAFI is represented by three teams – University of Visayas, Univ. of San Jose-Recoletos and the University of San Carlos.

Completing the “Sweet 16” roster are NAASCU champion San Sebastian-Recoletos de Cavite, MLQU of CUSA, UCN of UCAA/NCRAA and zonal qualifiers Arellano U and Lyceum.

At stake is a prize pool amounting to P1.7 million worth of scholarship grants and cash awards to be given to the schools and to the members of the top four teams. The national champion will also represent the Philippines in the Universiade Games in Serbia next year.

Forecast for the Cebu teams:

SBC versus USJ-R:
Minus Ekwe, I'd like to think it's even. As seen in the CeSAFI 2008 Finals, USJ-R has difficulty containing size(i.e. Greg Slaughter). Considering Ekwe is much stronger than Slaughter, USJ-R will need to use their big men wisely. The one good thing that USJ-R has in this match-up is their notoriety to play hard physical ball, they just have to keep their tempers in check. Odds for a USJ-R win=15%.
Key matchups: Ekwe vs. Amores/Gabas, Menor vs. Malinao/Delfino, Escobal vs. Ponce(if Escobal plays)

DLSU vs. USC:
I'd even consider USC lucky to get this matchup. Although USC will still have the height disadvantage, they at least avoid a team with a taller frontline in the round of 16. Mas mabuti na ito over a matchup with JRU and Sena or UE and Llagas/Espiritu. USC is the only team that lost a game in their bracket in the zonals and seems like they are actually 16th seed in the round of 16 and is being counted out by many as early as now. USC's season in 2008 can best be described as a roller coaster ride and consistency is an issue. Adding to USC's woes is the absence of main man Bogs Llanto who went under the knife. But DLSU should not make the mistake of taking them lightly as this USC squad can be very lethal when they play their A-game. DLSU's press might be a puzzle but USC has big men who has handles, so we might be looking at a half-court game among 2 squads that are probably better off running the break. Odds for a USC win: 20%.
Key matchups: Maierhofer vs. Rowe/Bakker, Barua vs. Hermosa/Gallarde, Casio vs. Padillo/Cantonao, Villanueva vs. Cortes

UV vs. UE:
Probably the only Cebu team with an advantage over their Round of 16 opponent. I believe UE does not have the manpower to stop Greg Slaughter 1 on 1 and will have to use some double teaming. Slaughter is a good passer off the double team and this could create problems for UE. UV's backcourt is also a talented bunch and despite Slaughter's apparent lack of speed, UV has a crew that can run(Lasala, Dennison, Cincoflores, Lanete on the floor). UE's advantage could be at the wing, but with Marcy Arellano's reported absence, this one will go to UV. Odds for a UV win: 70%.
Key matchups: Slaughter vs. Thiele/Llagas, Lasala vs. Espiritu, Lanete/Diputado/Cincoflores vs. Lee, Dennison vs. Arellano(should he resurface ;D)

Edited to add: No matter what the odds are, I'll be rooting for the Cebu teams to go as far and deep into the PCCL Sweet 16...Go Cebu :D ;D :P :)

just wondering whats with this "Cebu" tag on the schools of USJR and USC?? I'm just curious why UV doesn't have that tag? Well it is the only well-known school in the Visayas-Mindanao area?

Well USC is the oldest school in the Philippines, which was once known as Colegio de San Yldefonso in 1595....

PCCL ‘Sweet 16’ unwraps today

Manila Bulletin

Top seed Ateneo stakes its claim as the finest collegiate ballclub of the land when it goes for its third major title this season at the start of the Fil-Oil-Flying V "Sweet 16" Final Challenge of the Philippine Collegiate Championship today at the San Juan Arena.

The Blue Eagles, the reigning Universities Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) champions, go up against Lyceum in the opener of a doubleheader at 2 p.m.

National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) titleholder San Beda College, the No. 2 pick, takes on University of San Jose Recoletos in the other game at 4 p.m.

Last year, the Eagles defeated University of Visayas in the final to win the event presented this year by Fil-Oil- Flying V and sponsored by Smart, PLDT and Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) President Manny Pangilinan will toss the ceremonial ball assisted by PCC League (PCCL) Chairman Rey Gamboa.

With a powerhouse cast led by Chris Tiu and Rabeh Al-Hussaini, the Eagles dominated the UAAP, dropping only one game in the double round-robin eliminations. They went on to sweep the playoffs, including back-to-back wins over arch rival La Salle in the finals.

The Eagles followed up their UAAP conquest with another victory in the recent UniGames in Dumaguete where they defeated Emilio Aguinaldo College in the final.

Eric Salamat emerged as the tournament Most Valuable Player, underscoring the team’s depth and talent.

A victory over Lyceum put the Eagles in the quarterfinals against either Mapua or Manuel L. Quezon University.

Far Eastern University and three NCAA teams — No. 4 Jose Rizal University, San Sebastian and Letran — are also in Ateneo’s draw.

The Lions will miss the services of Pong Escobar, who is now playing for Talk ’N Text in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA). But they remain formidable with Sam Ekwe, Ogie Menor and Borgie Herminda in the lineup.

Should they hurdle USJ-R, the Lions will face the winner between Universal College and Arellano University.

The Lions will also have to contend with No. 3 La Salle, University of the East, University of Visayas and University of San Carlos in their side of the draw.

Except for one play date, all games will be held at the San Juan Arena.

The Ynares Sports Arena will play host to Round of Eight twinbill on Nov. 30.

The tournament, which is open free to the public, ends on Dec. 8.

Eagles, Lions start bid in 'Sweet 16'
November 24, 2008
Philippine Star

UAAP champion Ateneo and NCAA three-peat titlist San Beda start their drive to a dream title showdown as they take on zonal qualifiers Lyceum and University of San Jose-Recoletos, respectively, in the Sweet 16 of the Philippine Collegiate Champions’ League which fires off today at The Arena in San Juan City.

The Eagles, who swept archrivals the La Salle Archers to capture this year’s UAAP crown, tangle with the Pirates at 2 p.m. while the Lions, who edged the Jose Rizal Bombers in sudden death to clinch a third straight NCAA title, collide with the Jaguars at 4 p.m.

Twelve other teams are vying in the knockout style format stage of the tournament with the champion gaining a berth in the 2009 Universiade in Serbia.

Ateneo, however, will likely suit up without Jobe Nkemakolam and 2009 Rookie of the Year Ryan Buenafe and probably star guard Chris Tiu.

“Jobe will not play because he’s busy with something while Chris didn’t practice yesterday (Saturday) and might not play tomorrow (today),” Ateneo’s league representative to the UAAP board Ricky Palou yesterday told The STAR.
Buenafe, a vital cog in the Eagles’ recent title conquest, will not play to focus on his studies for him to be able to stay with the team next season.

Nkemakolam, on the other hand, was reportedly stricken off the list after he, according to a reliable source, failed to attend team functions while Tiu is doubtful starter because of his busy schedule.

But MVP Rabeh Al-Hussaini, Finals MVP Nonoy Baclao, Eric Salamat, Jai Reyes, Nico Salva, Yuri Escueta and Bacon Austria are all expected to suit up against the Pirates.

The Lions, on the other hand, will parade an intact roster headed by two-time NCAA MVP Sam Ekwe of Nigeria but without guard Pong Escobal, who is now with the pros.

“Everybody will play except Pong,” said San Beda mentor Frankie Lim.

“Sam is okay, and we’re still looking forward to win games with him around,” said Lim of his 6-9 reinforcement.

Ogie Menor, Borgie Hermida, Jake Pascual, Jay-R Taganas, JR Tecson, Chico Tirona, Bam Bam Gamalinda and Dave Marcelo are the other stars backstopping San Beda’s campaign.

Lim, however, cautioned his wards not to take the Jaguars lightly.

“USJR is a strong team, very aggressive and they have good shooters. We have to deal with that,” said Lim.
The Pirates gained a spot in the Sweet 16 in the Zone 2 qualifier while the Jaguars advanced to the elite round via the Zone 3 eliminations.

Aside from the trip to Serbia, the champion will pocket the top purse worth P1 million – half through scholarship grants courtesy of Smart, PLDT, KFC, Flying V, Fil-Oil and The STAR and the other half in cash through SBP chief Manny V. Pangilinan.

Eagles, Lions open Champs League bid
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—Two champions bannering two Most Valuable Players kick off the last phase of the search for the finest varsity team in the country this year.

Odds favor Ateneo de Manila University and San Beda College as they battle separate foes at the start of the “Sweet 16” competition of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship on Monday at The Arena in San Juan City.

MVP Rabeh Al-Hussaini aims to lead the reigning UAAP titlist Ateneo Blue Eagles anew against the Lyceum Manila Pirates in the 2 p.m. opener of the knockout-style contest.

The San Beda Red Lions, who dominated the NCAA with Nigerian Sam Ekwe in the last three years, clash against the University of San Jose Recoletos Jaguars at 4 p.m.

Both the Eagles and the Lions, along with six other champion squads, earned outright berths in the tournament that gathers the top collegiate teams in the country.

The Pirates advanced to the top 16 after qualifying in the Metro Manila zonals, while the Jaguars advanced from the Visayan leg.

The winner of the Ateneo-Lyceum duel will make the Last 8 against the winner of the Mapua-Manuel L. Quezon U clash.

If the Red Lions hurdle the Jaguars, they will play the winner of the first-round duel between Universal College of Nursing and Arellano University.

Ateneo, which won the PCCL crown last year over the University of the Visayas, will most likely miss ace gunner Chris Tiu as well as rookie Ryan Buenafe and power forward Jobe Nkemakolam.

The Eagles, though, will remain formidable as they welcome the return of UAAP Finals MVP Nonoy Baclao, who has recovered from tendonitis on his right knee.

Except for skipper Pong Escobal, who is already ineligible after signing up with Talk N’ Text in the PBA, San Beda will have all the players of its champion squad.

The champion of the national tournament sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas and backed by Smart, PLDT, FilOil Flying V and KFC, will represent the Philippines in the 2009 Universiade Games in Serbia and bag a P1-million total cash prize. Jasmine W. Payo and Cedelf P. Tupas

MANILA, Philippines - It's a league that plays the country's best collegiate champions.

NCAA champion San Beda? The Lions are in a league of their own.

JR Tecson tallied 15 points and five steals, Sam Ekwe had 14 points, nine rebounds and four blocks and the San Beda Red Lions demolished the San Jose-Recoletos U Jaguars 98-83 in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League basketball tournament on Monday at The Arena in San Juan.

This was over almost as quick as it started, as the Lions ran over the Jags in a 20-5 run in the second quarter to go up 51-29 near the close of the first half.

"We surprised them with our traps [and] we beat them on rebounds," San Beda head coach Frankie Lim said. "In the second half, we just tried to finish the game."

Borgie Hermida added 10 points and 13 assists, while two other Lions had 10 points.

San Beda faces the winner of the game between Universal College of Nursing and Arellano.

Guard Luther Justiniani led San Jose with 17 points.

Eagles, Lions advance to Last Eight
By Nelson Beltran Updated November 25, 2008 12:00 AM

http://philstar.com/Article.aspx?ArticleId=418476&publicationSubCategoryId=69


Seeded teams Ateneo and San Beda lived up to their billings, crushing zonal qualifiers Lyceum and San Jose-Recoletos, respectively, at the start of the 2008 Champions League at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.

The Blue Eagles, the UAAP champs, sized up the Pirates in the early goings before stepping up their game on the way to a 77-56 victory.

The Red Lions, the NCAA titlists, buckled down to work early and never let up in clobbering the Jaguars, 98-83.

“It was tougher than before. We’d played them couple of times in the past and it’s always difficult,” said coach Norman Black after his Eagles disposed of the Pirates to advance to the Last Eight against the winner of the Mapua-MLQU match tomorrow in the same venue.

Six-foot-6 Rabeh Al-Hussaini, the 2008 UAAP MVP winner, asserted himself against smaller defenders and piled up 19 points and 18 rebounds with Eric Salamat, Jai Reyes and Nico Salva contributing at least 10 points each.

Guard Joseph Abaya paced the losing team with 16 points that went with five assists and four rebounds.

The Pirates were able to put up a good fight early on, fighting the Eagles through three deadlocks with the last at 37-all in the third quarter.

The Eagles pulled away for good as Al-Hussaini imposed his strength at the paint while Salamat and Reyes came through with clutch baskets in the fourth quarter.

Ryan Buenafe and Jobe Nkemakolam skipped the game due to conflict with their studies. Chris Tiu isn’t playing in the tourney.

“We surprised them (the Jaguars) with our traps. We got a big lead early and held on to it,” said San Beda coach Frankie Lim on their victory.

“We need only four wins to win the championship. We’ve got one and we intend to get three more,” added Lim whose Lions failed to get past the quarterfinals last year.

Sam Ekwe and Borgie Hermida had solid all-round games for the Lions with the former churning out 14 points, nine rebounds, four blocks and one steal and the latter getting away with 13 assists, 10 points and four rebounds.

Off-the-bench player Bam Gamalinda paced the Lions in scoring 18 points in 19 minutes of action.

San Jose-Recoletos starters Luther Justiniani, Manny Gabas, Jabe Delfino, Arman Ponce and John Malinao all finished in double figures in the contest watched by former Jaguars Jojo Lastimosa and Roger Yap.

UAAP champion Ateneo De Manila and NCAA grand slam champion San Beda took similar routes in advancing to the "Elite 8" of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League. Both teams played minus key stars in their title campaigns but still manages to easily dispose of their upstart foes. Ateneo played without team captain Chris Tiu, rookie of the year honoree Ryan Buenafe and power forward Jobe Nkemakolam but still smashed Lyceum University 77-56. San Beda was without PBA rookie Pong Esobal yet still cruised to the 98-83 win over San Jose Recoletos of Cebu.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini, the 6'8" most valuable player of UAAP Season 71 had 19 points, 18 rebounds and two blocks to lead the Blue Eagles. He was joined by at least three other Blue Eagles with double digits in scoring including Jai Reyes, Eric Salamat and rookie Nico Salva. Ateneo leaned on Al-Hussaini's strength down low, the strong on-ball defense of Salamat, and the perimeter sniping of Reyes to erect their first double-digit lead at 49-39 early in the second half. They were never threatened from there.

Bam Gamalinda came off the bench to lead the Red Lions with 18 points and seven rebounds. JR Tecson, Borgie Hermida and 6'8" NCAA Season 84 most valuable player Sam Ekwe conspired early to give the Red Lions a 39-18 lead midway through the first half and they never looked back. San Beda went up by as much as 31 points late in the third period 69-38 and were already taking it easy. With still some eight minutes left in the game head coach Frankie Lim emptied his bench and sent in Gino Soliman and Jerome Villanueva.

All told it was just a sheer show of superior basketball by the two champions as they exploited mismatches on both ends of the court. Ateneo pounded the ball into their taller frontline, even as defensive player of the year Nonoy Baclao held his usual block party against the relatively smaller Lyceum squad. San Beda came out hard on transition and played a match-up zone to shock and awe Recoletos.

Archers, Stallions take on qualifiers
Updated November 26, 2008 12:00 AM
Philstar




CUSA titlist Manuel Luis Quezon U and UAAP runner-up La Salle are the seeded teams taking on zonal qualifiers in Day Two of the 2008 Champions League Sweet 16 at The Arena in San Juan today.

The MLQU Stallions battle NCAA third placer Mapua Cardinals at 2 p.m. while the Archers tackle Cebu-based University of San Carlos Warriors at 4 p.m., disputing berths in the Round of Eight of the tourney which stakes to the champion the right to represent the country in the 2010 Universiade in Serbia on top of a P1 million cash and scholarship grant.

Favorites Ateneo and San Beda have advanced to the next round of the event sponsored by Smart, PLDT, KFC, Flying V, Fil-Oil and The Philippine STAR.

La Salle is favored versus San Carlos though the Archers are said to be lacking in preparation and setting out for today’s match minus playmakers Simon Atkins and LA Revilla.

“We haven’t practiced since the UAAP so we will just come out fighting with our system and hearts,” said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren.

USC, for its part, is playing without head coach Jay Ramirez, who’s left in Cebu for health reason. Assistant coach Mike Reyes will call the shots for the team that produced four-time PBA MVP winner Ramon Fernandez.

Odds are about even in the MLQU-Mapua tiff.

“They (MLQU) can’t be champions if they’re not good. We’ll surely have a difficult time against this team,” said coach Leo Isaac, who’s calling the shots for both Mapua and Arellano in this event.

Isaac said Kelvin dela Peña has left a big void in the team on his graduation to the pro league.

Other teams taking part in the Sweet 16 are Universal College of Nursing, Letran, San Sebastian-Cavite, UE, University of Visayas, JRU and FEU.

The second and third placers will win P400,000 and P300,000, respectively, in scholarship and cash prizes.

Archers shackle USC 5

La Salle, with little preparation due to conflict of schedule, banked on an unrelenting pressing defense to get past University of San Carlos, 71-51, in the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Champions League Sweet 16 at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.

The Archers, the 2008 UAAP losing finalists, played full-court defense throughout, giving the Warriors a tough time to set up their halfcourt plays.

Hitting their strides offensively, the Archers opened up a 16-point spread at 31-15 and went on to complete the win to arrange a quarterfinal duel with the winner of the University of the East-University of Visayas clash today.

La Salle became the third seeded team to make the Final Eight after Ateneo and San Beda while San Carlos became the second provincial team to be booted out of the elite tourney after San Jose-Recoletos.

“We’re lucky to be bracketed with San Carlos because I don’t think we had a decent practice due to conflict of schedule. In our last practice, we only had seven players present,” said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren.

“There’s no question this is a good tournament but, in my personal opinion, they (league officials) should look for ways to schedule it in such a way that’s favorable to all the teams concerned. Maybe, February is a better schedule just like the old inter-collegiate tourney,” added Pumaren complaining his team was out of sync due to lack of practice.

La Salle did appear to be sluggish in the early going, allowing San Carlos to take the early initiative.

The Archers seized control towards the end of the first quarter, though, and kept the Warriors at bay the rest of the way.

Pumaren said JV Casio, James Mangahas, Rico Maierhofer, Peejay Barua, P.J. Walsham and Rejan Lee have commitments in the PBL and he can’t force them to practice with La Salle if they have a game or practice with their commercial teams.

Earlier, Mapua came out smoking from the halftime huddle and held off Manuel Luis Quezon U, 97-85.

“They’re (the Stallions) unscouted. We had to use the first half to scout them before buckling down to work,” said Mapua coach Leo Isaac.

Neil Pascual, Jonathan Banal, Ian Mazo and Jayson Pascual teamed up in a searing third-quarter attack carrying the Cardinals to the win and to a Last Eight encounter with the Blue Eagles Sunday.

Banal buried three triples and finished with a team-high 20 points while Pascual and Mark Sarangay both came through with a double-double efforts for Mapua which became the first qualifier to make it past the opening round of the tourney sponsored by Filoil, Flying V, PLDT-Smart, KFC, Molten, Adidas, Accel and The Philippine STAR.

Warriors zap Lancers; Chiefs oust Dragons
By Nelson Beltran
Philippine Star
November 28, 2008


University of the East eased out the last of the three Cebuano teams in the Fil-Oil Flying V Champions Cup Sweet 16 Final Challenge as the Warriors upended the University of Visayas Green Lancers, 68-62, yesterday at The Arena in San Juan.

The Warriors used a pressing defense and a running attack to cut the tall UV team, bannered by 6-foot-11 Fil-Am center Greg Slaughter, down to size.

“Like La Salle, we didn’t have much preparation for this tourney. Good thing for us is we have a system already in place. We used the strategy we had against Sam Ekwe (of San Beda) and Jervy Cruz (of UST) to neutralize Slaughter,” said UE coach Dindo Pumaren.

Getting past Slaughter and his teammates, the Warriors, qualifiers from the Luzon zonal, reached the Last Eight against the La Salle Archers in this elite tourney sponsored by Smart, PLDT, Fil-Oil, Flying V, KFC, Adidas, Accel, Greenwich and The Philippine STAR.

“We’re in the tougher bracket. Having overcome the CESAFI champions, we next play La Salle. If we survive them, we’re likely to play next NCAA champion San Beda,” said Pumaren.

Though smaller by at least six inches than Slaughter, Elmer Espiritu held his ground at the paint, pulling down 19 rebounds and putting in 13 points.

Earlier, 6-foot-3 forward Orlando Daroya sizzled with 31 points, nine rebounds and nine blocks, powering Arellano U past Universal College of Nursing, 76-61.

Arellano walloped UNC twice in four days, thus, advancing to the next round versus NCAA titlist San Beda. The Chiefs also defeated the Dragons in their face-off in the NCRAA last Monday.

Espiritu joined forces with Lucas Tagarda and Pari Llagas in a telling fourth-quarter run breaking the backs of the Lancers of coach Boy Cabahug and assistant Al Solis.

The Lancers threatened to pull away, 51-46, on a 13-to-nothing run on a four-minute stretch bridging the last two quarters.

The Warriors, however, reorganized after a timeout, and came through with a 7-0 counterattack to regain the lead at 53-51.

Slaughter collected 16 points and 15 rebounds for the Lancers.

Outsider SSC-Cavite out to break into Elite 8 in Champs League

San Sebastian-Cavite hopes to become the lone provincial team to make it past the opening round of the Fil-Oil Flying V Philippine Collegiate Champions League Final Challenge when it battles Letran today at The Arena in San Juan.

Jose Rizal and Far Eastern U clash in the other game in the final double-header in the Sweet 16 phase of the elite tourney staking to the winner the right to represent the country in the Universiade in Serbia next year.

The winners in today’s matches face each other in the quarterfinal round of the event sponsored by Smart, PLDT, Fil-Oil, Flying V, KFC, Adidas, Accel, Greenwich and The Philippine STAR.

SSC-Cavite is the lone provincial team left following the exit of Cebu-based squads San Jose Recoletos, San Carlos and University of Visayas.

The first six quarters slots went to Metro Manila teams Ateneo, San Beda, La Salle, Mapua, Arellano and UE. The Eagles, the Lions and the Archers are seeded teams while the Cardinals, the Chiefs and the Warriors are qualifiers.

Though seeded in the tourney being the NAASCU champions, the Baycats of coach Egay Macaraya are expected to have their hands full against the Knights bannered by a number of players exposed in the PBL.

Narrowly missing the NCAA finals, the Knights of coach Louie Alas had to go through the zonals to make the Champions League proper.

Like Letran, FEU is a qualifier that should not be taken for granted.For one, the core of the Tamaraws plays for Harbour Centre in the PBL.

JRU coach Ariel Vanguardia himself is wary of the Tams.

“They’ve a solid lineup with good players in all positions. We expect a battle,” said Vanguardia

Dindo Pumaren leaves UE Warriors
By Jasmine W. Payo
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—He bowed out just as his squad made its exit.

The University of the East Warriors came out of their dugout in tears Sunday not because of their narrow loss to the De La Salle University Green Archers in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League’s Filoil-Flying V “Sweet 16” Final Challenge.

The Warriors mourned the shock departure of coach Dindo Pumaren.

After manning the UE bench for five seasons, Pumaren officially bid goodbye to the perennial UAAP title contender, citing other future plans.

“I already resigned two days after our UAAP Final Four game, but [UE’s representative to the UAAP board Carmelita] Mateo requested that I continue coaching the team in the PCCL,” Pumaren told the Philippine Daily Inquirer (parent company of INQUIRER.net).

“I decided to stay on, but I now have (to pursue) other personal plans.”

Pumaren’s announcement came minutes after his older brother Franz’s Green Archers pulled off a 75-72 escape over the Warriors in the PCCL quarterfinals, Eliminating UE from the tournament.

Under Dindo, the Warriors reached the UAAP finals for the first time in two decades following a phenomenal 14-0 sweep of the elimination round last year.

But Franz and his multi-titled crew wound up stunning them for the 2007 men’s basketball title.

Pumaren, a former star Purefoods point guard in the PBA, debuted as collegiate coach in 2004, taking over a UE squad reeling from the departure of standouts James Yap and Paul Artadi.

The 43-year-old mentor still managed to steer the ragtag squad to a Final Four stint and led the Warriors to the semifinals in the next four years.

The Warriors finished fourth this season. “We had good runs and of course heartaches, but overall, it was a good learning experience,” said Pumaren.

Four teams vie for last two PCCL semis spots

MANILA, Philippines – San Beda, Far Eastern University (FEU), Letran and Arellano University (AU) vie for the last two semifinals slots in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League when they clash in Wednesday’s quarterfinal round at The Arena in San Juan City.

Reigning NCAA titlist San Beda takes on two-time NCRAA champion Arellano University in the 4pm main game after the 2pm opening match between collegiate powerhouses FEU and Letran.

The winners will join early semifinalists Ateneo and La Salle. The winner of the San Beda-Arellano match will face La Salle while Ateneo battles the victor of the FEU-Letran game.

The Red Lions roughed up University of San Jose-Recoletos, 98-83, in the Round of 16 on November 24 while the AU Chiefs leaned on Orlando Daroya’s 31-point explosion to complete a 76-61 decision against Universal College on November 27.

The Knights, meanwhile, coasted to an 80-65 triumph over NAASCU titlist San Sebastian College-Cavite while the Tamaraws advanced by disposing of NCAA runner up Jose Rizal University, 84-75, both on November 29.

At the start of Sunday’s quarterfinals, Ateneo clawed Mapua, 67-53, while La Salle squeezed out a 75-72 victory over fellow UAAP team University of the East. – GMANews.TV

San Beda and Arellano meet in a duel of champions to decide which team advances to a semifinal showdown against La Salle in the Fil-Oil Flying V Champions League at The Arena in San Juan today.

Letran and FEU, losing semifinalists in their respective leagues, clash in the day’s other game with the winner facing top favorite Ateneo in the Final Four of the tourney which gathers the cream of the collegiate teams for the right to represent the country in the Universiade in Serbia next year.

The Eagles clobbered the Mapua Cardinals, 67-53, while the Archers shot down the UE Warriors, 75-72, to gain the first two semis seat in the event sponsored by Fil-Oil, Flying V, Smart-PLDT, Adidas, Accel, Molten and The Philippine STAR.

It could become an exciting UAAP-NCAA showdown should San Beda and Letran dispose of Arellano and FEU.

However, the Chiefs, the reigning NCRAA champions, are raring to gatecrash the big guns’ party.

“We’ll take the chance to beat one of the strongest collegiate teams in the country right now. We’ll give it our best shot,” said Arellano coach Leo Isaac.

Arellano banked heavily on Orlando Daroya’s 31-point game as it overpowered UCAA titlist Universal College, 76-61, in the Sweet 16 phase.

“That’s our problem. Coach Frankie Lim and his staff have scouted Daroya. He’s now a marked man,” said Isaac.
Letran and FEU clash in a battle of teams with players toughened up by their PBL stints.

The Knights, who have a number of players playing for Toyota-Balintawak, walloped the SSC-Cavite Baycats, 80-65, while the Tamaraws, the core of them playing for Harbour Centre, rapped the JRU Heavy Bombers, 84-75, in the opening round Saturday.

San Beda, La Salle eye semis seat
By Jonas Terrado
Manila Bulletin

NCAA champion San Beda eyes a rare date with UAAP powerhouse De La Salle in the semis when it tangles with Father Martin Cup and NCRAA champion Arellano University today in the resumption of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship Elite Eight at The Arena in San Juan.

The Red Lions are coming off a convincing 98-83 victory over Cebu’s University of San Jose Recoletos in the Sweet 16 opener last Nov. 24 and coach Frankie Lim is hoping they could do the same against the Chiefs when they clash at 4 p.m.

Reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player Sam Ekwe will lead the squad along with Ogie Menor, Borgie Hermida, Jake Pascual and even seldom-used JR Tecson, who has been doing well for Burger King in the PBL.

But Arellano is hoping to pull off a mighty upset over its neighbor from Mendiola with head coach Leo Isaac expected to rely against wingman Orlando Daroya.

The 6-foot-3 Daroya, who hails from Pangasinan and plays for Bacchus in the PBL, pulled off a one-man show last week when he almost hit a triple-double of 31 points, nine rebounds and nine blocks against Universal College of Nursing.

Isaac will try to lead the Chiefs to the final four this time after his other team Mapua bowed to Ateneo last Sunday.
The winner will meet the Green Archers on Saturday. The Taft-based cagers defeated University of the East, 75-72, to advance to the semifinals.

In the curtain raiser, Far Eastern University and Letran meet to see who will play Ateneo in the next round.

The Tamaraws are coming off a tough 84-75 victory over NCAA runner-up Jose Rizal University last Saturday while the Knights had an easy time in routing NAASCU champion San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite, 80-65.
During the Sweet 16, FEU got strong performances from guard Mark Barroca, Jonathan Fernandez and Riel Cervantes.

Barroca spearhead the Morayta-based cagers’ charge when he scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half en route to the ouster of the Heavy Bombers.

Shooting guard RJ Jazul, Dino Daa and Kojack Melegrito will lead the Knights’ assault in hopes of moving on to the semis for the first time ever.

Tams seek Final Four berth vs Knights
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University aims to become the third UAAP team in the Final Four of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League on Wednesday when the Tamaraws face the Letran Knights at The Arena in San Juan City.

Gametime is at 4 p.m. with the Tamaraws picked over the Knights, owing to their resounding 84-75 thumping of NCAA losing finalist Jose Rizal University in the first-round.

The Knights, third placer in the NCAA, reached the elite eight by dumping the San Sebastian-Cavite Baycats, 85-70, Saturday.

FEU coach Glenn Capacio sees a physical battle with the Knights, who will be led by the trio of RJ Jazul, Carl Melegrito and muscular forward Dino Daa.

Capacio also hopes some of his players will be able to deal with the tough grind of playing in the Philippine Basketball League and the PCCL for two straight days.

“I think they will be okay,” he said, referring to Andy Barroca, Benedict Fernandez, Aldrech Ramos, Reil Cervantes and JR Cawaling, who played for Harbour Centre Tuesday in the PBL.

Barroca and Cervantes combined for 31 points in the victory against JRU.

Clashing for the other semifinal berth at 2 p.m. are NCAA champion San Beda College and Arellano University.

The winner of the FEU-Letran match will face UAAP champion Ateneo de Manila University in the semifinals.

If the Lions hurdle the Chiefs, they will face the De La Salle University Archers for a place in the finals.

Ateneo booted out Mapua Institute of Technology, 67-53, while La Salle overcame University of the East, 75-72, in the quarterfinals.

Foremost on the Red Lions’ defensive pattern will be the stopping of Arellano’s explosive forward Orlando Daroya.

The 6-foot-3 Daroya flirted with a triple double in the 76-61 Sweet 16 victory over Universal College of Nursing, tallying 31 points, nine rebounds and nine blocks.

San Beda eliminated University of San Jose-Recoletos, 98-83, in the first round, behind the hot hands of Bam Gamalinda.

Lions coach Frankie Lim is also pinning his hopes on Sam Ekwe, Ogie Menor, Borgie Hermida and JR Tecson.

Letran ousts FEU, battles Ateneo next
San Beda advances to semis
By Cedelf P. Tupas
Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—It was just one of those days when Carl “Kojack” Melegrito played with reckless abandon and the result was ideal for the Letran College Knights.

Melegrito thrived on his role as go-to-guy in crunchtime and Letran torched Far Eastern University with its outside shooting for a 94-93 quarterfinal upset Wednesday to forge a showdown with UAAP champion Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippine Collegiate Championship Final Four at The Arena in San Juan City.

Melegrito took the ball away from Mark Barroca, leading to the possession where he nailed a triple from the baseline to shatter a 91-all deadlock with 16 seconds left.

“You know, Kojack, he will either show up with a good game or a bad game,” said Letran coach Louie Alas. “But he gave us the win on this one.”

Barroca made a short stab with six ticks left, but Letran ran out the clock following a timeout to make the semifinals for the first time.

The Knights buried 16 out of 28 attempts, highlighted by Rey Guevarra’s 4-of-4 clip.

San Beda College also advanced to the semifinals with an 87-72 victory over Arellano University that sealed an interesting match-up with UAAP first runner-up De La Salle University.

The Lions bucked the departure of top playmaker Borgie Hermida, who suffered a cracked bone on his right knee following a bad fall in the third quarter, as they applied the full-court press during the entire fourth quarter to take the Chiefs out of their rhythm.
“Arellano gave us the biggest scare of our lives,” said San Beda coach Frankie Lim, whose Lions trailed by eight points in the first quarter.

The scores:

First Game

LETRAN 94—Guevarra 20, Daa 17, Jazul 15, Melegrito 15, Cortes 9, Belencion 6, Gutilban 5, Cabonce 3, Ranises 3, Del Rosario 1, Dangcal 0.

FEU 93—Fernandez 16, Barroca 16, Baracael 14, Ramos 14, Cawaling 11, Cervantes 10, Adolfo 6, Knuttel 4, Tanuan 2, Sanga 0.

Quarters: 22-24, 44-42, 71-70, 94-93

Second Game

SAN BEDA 87—Pascual 15, Gamalinda 14, Ekwe 12, Lanete 11, Menor 8, Hermida 7, Marcelo 6, Tirona 4, Taganas 4, Tecson 4, Taupa 2.

ARELLANO 72—Daroya 33, Melano 15, Agustin 9, Rivera 8, Celada 5, Del Rosario 2, Ciriacruz 0, Anquillo 0.

Quarters: 19-25, 39-31-56, 87-72

Final Four: Ateneo faces Letran; SBC tests DLSU
December 06, 2008
Philippine Star

Four of the country’s top collegiate teams mix it up today in the semifinal round of the Fil-Oil Flying V Collegiate Champions League Final Challenge at The Arena in San Juan.

It’s Ateneo versus Letran at 2 p.m. then La Salle against San Beda at 4 p.m.

Never have these four high-profile teams been together in the same stage before – not even in the NCAA despite accounting for a combined number of 49 championships since the Final Four format was instituted in the collegiate league only in 1998.

But they certainly have figured in classic matches in the past.

The Blue Eagles and the Green Archers have brought their rivalry over in the UAAP and they may again face each other in a title match should they hurdle their NCAA foes.

The Knights and the Lions, however, are determined to put up a tough challenge, raring to make the final of the elite tourney sponsored by Fil-Oil, Flying V, Smart-PLDT, Adidas, Accel, Molten, KFC, Greenwich, Gourmet Coffee and The STAR.

The Lions have remained optimistic of their chances although they’d lost ace playmaker Borgie Hermida to injury suffered in the quarterfinals against the Arellano Chiefs.

Hermida is set to undergo operation Wednesday and he’ll be out for at least six months.

“My other guards have to step up and my big guys have to support our backcourt players. It will be hard but we’ll be there fighting,” said San Beda coach Frankie Lim.

The fact that San Beda beat La Salle in their most recent tiff in the last Fil-Oil event makes the Lions more confident they can survive the test.

Chico Tirona and Jerome Villanueva will alternate at the point in the absence of Hermida. Lim has full trust and confidence on the two, both grizzled warriors entering their fifth and final year in the NCAA. – Nelson Beltran

Ateneo and La Salle pulled off nail-biting semifinal victories over Letran and San Beda yesterday to forge a rematch of their UAAP finals in the 2008 Fil-Oil Flying V Philippine Collegiate Champions League Final Challenge.

The Eagles blew hot and cold before coming through in the clutches to edge the Knights, 61-60, while the Archers came alive in the fourth quarter to stun the Red Lions, 62-61, before a good weekend crowd at The Arena in San Juan.

The archrivals dispute the crown in the finale at 4 p.m. tomorrow at the Araneta Coliseum.

UAAP MVP Rabeh Al-Hussaini scored a game-high 24 points but it was Ryan Buenafe, playing his first game in this tournament, who delivered the go-ahead basket for the Eagles.

Letran had a chance to snatch the win but Rey Guevarra missed a short jumper as time expired.

“Defense saved us again,” said coach Norman Black, whose Eagles got a crack at a title repeat in this tournament sponsored by Fil-Oil, Flying V, Smart-PLDT, Adidas, Accel, Molten, KFC, Greenwich , Gourmet Coffee and The Philippine STAR.

San Beda, the reigning NCAA three-peat champion, had looked headed to forging a much-anticipated title duel with Ateneo as it led by as many as 14 points in the third quarter only to collapse in the fourth period.

JV Casio, playing his last year with La Salle, shrugged off a scoreless first half, exploding for 11 points in the last two quarters including a seven-point binge in the final canto.

Casio’s biggest moment came when he stole off JR Tecson and scored on a fast break lay-up with 6.6 ticks to go. The Archers won the game when Ogie Menor missed a lay-up in the waning seconds.

“We trailed for most part of the match but the boys hung in there. When the opportunity came, we grabbed it,” said La Salle mentor Franz Pumaren.

“It’s going to be a thrilling final. I guess this win showed the UAAP is the better league,” he added.

San Beda, which was looking forward to settling the issue on which is the country’s best collegiate team, instead settled for a knockout battle for third place with Letran, its NCAA nemesis.

Playing without Chris Tiu and Jobe Nkemakolam, the Eagles still had enough firepower to race to a 17-point lead in the second quarter.

But the Knights toughened up on defense and even managed to grab a 60-59 lead with 54.4 seconds remaining on a five-point binge by RJ Jazul.

Ateneo and La Salle face off again today to dispute a cage championship for the second time in three months with the Eagles out to score a repeat and cap a banner year for the Loyola-based squad.

At stake is the 2008 Fil-Oil/Flying V Philippine Collegiate Champions League crown, a P 1 million prize in cash and scholarship, a spot in the 2009 Universiade in Serbia, plus the bragging rights as the country’s No. 1 collegiate basketball team.

Gametime is at 4 p.m. at the Araneta Coliseum where the Eagles swept the Archers to capture this year’s UAAP championship last September.

The duel marks the teams’ seventh meeting this year with the Archers winning their first encounter in another Fil-Oil/Flying V-backed tournament early this year and the Eagles taking the next five.

“Aside from their line-up, they (Ateneo) have practiced together since they have only few players playing in the PBL while we only have one practice as a team because most are in the PBL,” said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren.

“I don’t know about that. We’ll see,” said Ateneo mentor Norman Black, who steered the Eagles to their first UAAP crown in six years by sweeping La Salle.

The Eagles and the Archers pulled off a pair of one-point victories in the semis Saturday to force another title clash with the former nipping the Letran Knights, 61-60, and the latter edging the San Beda Red Lions, 62-61.

Meanwhile, the Lions and the Knights dispute third place honors at 2 p.m.

The event is backed by Fil-Oil, Flying V, Smart-PLDT, Adidas, Accel, Molten, KFC, Greenwich, Gourmet Coffee and The Philippine STAR and Smart chair Manny V. Pangilinan.

Ateneo swept La Salle in four games in this year’s UAAP season, including in the best-of-three championship. Its other win came in the semifinals of the Nike Summer League where it also emerged champion by edging University of the East.

“Of course, we want to get back at them and maybe settle the issue,” said La Salle’s JV Casio, who is playing his last official game as an Archer.

Ateneo, however, will miss the services of Chris Tiu and Jobe Nkemakolam while injured Yuri Escueta is a doubtful starter.

La Salle, for its part, will play without point guards Simon Atkins and LA Revilla, who are out with injuries.

“We’re practically playing without a point guard,” said Pumaren.

La Salle took the best dished out by UAAP’s best and won the crown that seemed to matter most for the Archers, who shot down the undermanned Ateneo Blue Eagles, 71-62, to capture the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Champions League championship at the Araneta Coliseum last night.

The Archers, swept by the Eagles in their recent showdown for the UAAP title showdown, got untracked in the third quarter then poured it all out in the fourth behind JV Casio to fashion out the victory.

It didn’t only avenge its loss in the UAAP finals but the win also clinched for the Archers a berth in next year’s Universiade in Serbia plus the top prize worth P1 million, half in scholarship grants.

“We won the big one. At least we can say, based on the tournament format, we’re the No. 1 collegiate team in the land,” said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren in the din of celebration at center court.

The event, sponsored by FilOil/Flying V, The Philippine Star, KFC, Accel, Molten and Adidas and PLDT and Smart chair Manny V. Pangilinan, drew the best collegiate teams in the land with the Archers beating the reigning three-peat NCAA titlist San Beda in the semifinal round.

“It’s a nice feeling to know that we’re still considered the No. 1 college team in the Philippines because the best of the best in college basketball were here,” said Pumaren.

Casio fired 20 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, in his last game as an Archer, capping an impressive stint with a team he led to two championships.

“Playing Ateneo draws the best in us, it’s nice to win my final game with La Salle,” said the soft-spoken Casio.

But La Salle beat an Ateneo squad that played without three of its mainstays, including team captain Chris Tiu, top rookie Ryan Buenafe and Jobe Nkemakolam.

Tiu was still in the US while Buenafe was reportedly ill.

“Congratulations to La Salle, they deserve to win this particular game,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black. “Of course, this is not the same team that played in the UAAP so what can I do. We can only do our best with what we have.”

“Ryan is sick, Chris is in the US. What can I do?” he added.

It was only the second win by La Salle over Ateneo in seven matches this year. The Archers won their first game in a pre-season event last summer, lost one in another tournament before the Eagles swept them in four matches in the UAAP.

The Archers put up a resolute defense to limit the production of Ateneo’s top scorers outside the duo of Tiu and Buenafe - Rabeh Al-Hussaini and Eric Salamat.

Jai Reyes tried to carry the load by unleashing 22 points, including six triples, but the talented Ateneo guard’s efforts proved not enough.

Earlier, Letran stunned San Beda, 75-67, to clinch third place.

There can only be one. And once again it was one Lasalle basketball.

De Lasalle University's multi-titled Green Archers added another one for the trophy case back home in Taft Avenue, besting arch rival Ateneo De Manila 71-62 to capture the 2008 Philippine Collegiate National Championship before a raucous crowd at the historic Araneta Coliseum.

JV Casio, the superstar guard who had delivered many other previous titles to the Green Archers, saved his best game for his last time in a Lasalle uniform. After a tight first half that ended with Ateneo on top 29-28 at the lemon time break, Casio presided over a 15-4 run that turned a 32-33 deficit into a 45-33 bubble for the Green and White. Ateneo never recovered from there as the Blue Eagles groped for form and head coach Norman Black could not seem to find the right combination. He could not get any consistency from his boys as they ran into a mess of turnovers all throughout that pivotal third period run by Lasalle.

Black missed his leading scorer from Season 71, Chris Tiu, and Season 71 rookie of the year Ryan Buenafe. Tiu did not see aciton anymore in the PCCL while Buenafe was reportedly suspended for this game for coming to the last practise very late and offered no excuse for his tardiness.

Casio on the other hand got going and soon got his whole team going as well. He nailed a trey, fed James Mangahas and Bader Malabes in transition off back to back steals and generally just got into the zone as he literally walloped Ateneo almost by himself. He did of course get plenty of help, not the least from PJ Barua, who attacked the baselines, shot well form the perimeter and was an overall pest on the defensive end.

Ateneo made one last attempt to rally behind Jai Reyes. Reyes shot Ateneo back within 47-53 late in the third period with some defensive help from Nonoy Baclao and offensive rebounding from reigning UAAP most valuable player Rabeh Al-Hussaini. Al-Hussaini was off-form the whole game and looked every bit the bungling clod he was in his first three seasons with Ateneo thanks to the great Lasalle defense. Casio and James Mangahas soon made it 57-47 again though.

In the payoff fourth period Ateneo came within 62-68 on a buzzer-beating trey by Reyes and two freethrows by Al-Hussaini. But that was about as good as it got for the Blue Eagles as Casio, Mangahas and Barua wrapped it up form the line for the Green Archers.

Lasalle's defense was patent green and white all throughout this game. Without the insurance of Tiu's perimeter game and Buenafe's slashing, Ateneo found itself jammed for points. Reyes was the only consistent scorer in this game and he was hounded no end by the bigger and stronger Lasalle guards. With the fiullcourt press and the 2-3 match-up zone in full effect, Ateneo came nowhere near threatening Lasalle. Lasalle also got superb performances from their entire roster, as opposed to the unproductive bench of Ateneo.

"It just feels great to win this championship, this is for all of the fans, and I'd like to thank every one for their support, thank you to every one," said an ecstatic Casio in one post-game interview.

Casio was named most valuable player of the tournament, the last feather in his collegiate basketball cap. He led all scorers with 22 points. Reyes led Ateneo with 21 markers, going 6-12 from three-point range.

De La Salle avenged its title loss to Ateneo de Manila in the UAAP by hacking out a 71-62 decision yesterday to claim 2008 Fil-Oil Flying V Champions League crown at the Araneta Coliseum.

JV Casio, playing his last game as a Green Archer, made his valedictory address by scoring 17 of his 20 points in the second half and was adjudged as the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

With the victory, La Salle not only became the country’s best collegiate team but received the Perpetual Trophy plus half of the P1 million cash purse at stake in the tournament. The Green Archers also gained the right to represent the country in the 2009 Universiade in Serbia.

"Well at least we won a big one," said La Salle coach Franz Pumaren. "I thought we would get zero this 2008 but at least we could say that based on the format, we’re the number one collegiate champion."

After trailing, 28-29, entering the third quarter, the Archers came through with a telling 17-4 run, capped by a teardrop from Casio at the 5:19 ark, to race to a 45-33 advantage.

The Blue Eagles threatened, 46-51, at the close of the third period but this proved to be their last best stand as they failed to make headway in the final 10 minutes as Casio uncorked 10 more points that all but ensured La Salle’s win.

Peejay Barua added 10 points to the Archers’ cause while Bader Malabes and Ferdinand added eight and seven points, respectively.

Casio shot 7-of-13 from the floor while adding six rebounds, six assists and three steals in 20 minutes of action.

"I told him that this is his last game wearing the La Salle jersey and at least try to end his career with a bang so I think he deserves this," Pumaren said of Casio.

Jai Reyes led Ateneo with 22 points on 6-of-12 treys while Rabeh Al-Hussaini had a dismal 2-of-10 shooting for 10 points and four rebounds.

The Blue Eagles played without Chris Tiu, Jobe Nkemakolam and Ryan Buenafe, who is sick.

In the first game, Letran defeated NCAA champion San Beda, 75-67, to salvage third place in the tournament sponsored by Smart, PLDT, KFC, Gourmet Coffee, Adidas and Greenwich.

RJ Jazul exploded for 15 of his 17 points in the second half to lead the Knights to the win.

Sam Ekwe led the Red Lions with 21 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks with JR Tecson and Ogie Menor scoring 11 and 10, respectively.

Casio, Al-Hussaini, Rico Maierhofer, Nonoy Baclao and Jazul were named to the Mythical Five.

The scores:


First Game

LETRAN 75 — Jazul 17, Daa 16, Guevarra 9, Melegrito 9, Ranises 8, Cabonce 6, Belencion 5, Cortes 2, Gutilban 2, Del Rosario 1, Dangcal 0.

SAN BEDA 68 — Ekwe 21, Tecson 11, Menor 10, Pascual 7, Taganas 6, Villanueva 4, Gamalinda 4, Marcelo 2, Lanete 2, Taupa 0, Soliman 0, Tirona 0.

Quarters: 15-15; 35-32; 50-53; 75-67.


Second Game

LA SALLE 71 — Casio 20, Barua 10, Malabes 8, Ferdinand 7, Mangahas 5, Bagatsing 5, Maierhofer 5, Webb 5, Mendoza 2, Lee 0.

ATENEO 62 — Reyes 22, Al-Hussaini 10, Gonzaga 6, Salva 5, Baclao 4, Baldos 4, Salamat 2, Escueta 2, Long 2, Sumalinog 0.

Quarters: 9-13; 28-29; 51-46; 71-62.

Search for national collegiate champions ends
By Ed Picson
December 12, 2008
Manila Bulletin

Since the UAAP and the NCAA fight their own battles, and with dozens of other collegiate tournaments in different venues and areas around the country, the establishment of the Philippine Collegiate Championship League addressed the crying need for a true national collegiate championship.


A brainchild of former PBA chairman Rey Gamboa of the defunct Shell Turbochargers, the PCCL has grown by leaps and bounds in the three years that it has existed.

For how can one dispute the numbers? This year, there were 212 collegiate teams that joined the rigid process of elimination.

The beauty of it was that the system developed by Gamboa and his group afforded all the collegiate leagues all over the country a chance to showcase their stuff and vie for the coveted plum.

The country was divided into nine regions and their mother leagues held their own tournaments, to determine their respective regional champions.

The following are the nine regional champions for 2008: Region 1 (Ilocos/Baguio) – St. Louis University, Region 2 (Pangasinan/Pampanga) – University of Luzon, Region 3 (Quezon/Bicol) – University of Nueva Caceres, Region 4 (Bacolod/Iloilo) – West Negros University, Region 5 (Bohol/Dumaguete) – BIT International College, Region 6 (Tacloban/Ormoc) – AMA Computer Learning Center, Region 7 (Cagayan de Oro) – Xavier University, Region 8 (Davao/GenSan) – University of Mindanao, and Region 9 (Zamboanga provinces) – Ateneo de Zamboanga.

24 teams, including the above-mentioned regional champions, along with the top performers in Metro Manila and Cebu leagues, and ‘wild card’ qualifiers advanced to the zonal level to compete for 8 of the 16 slots in the slots in the ‘Sweet Sixteen’, the final phase of the Philippine Collegiate Championship games.

The 8 teams that emerged from the zonal competitions were the Mapua Cardinals, Arellano U Chiefs, University of the East Warriors, Lyceum of the Philippines Pirates, Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights, University of San Jose Recoletos Jaguars, Far Eastern University Tamaraws and University of San Carlos Warriors.

The other 8 that comprised the ‘Sweet 16’ were those seeded based on their performances in their respective leagues in Manila and Cebu. These were the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles – UAAP Champion, San Beda Red Lions – NCAA Champion, De la Salle Green Archers – UAAP runner-up, JRU Heavy Bombers – NCAA runner-up, University of Visayas Green Lancers – CESAFI Champion, MLQU Stallions – CUSA Champion, San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Cavite – NAASCU Champion, and Universal College Golden Dragons – UCAA champion.

Out of the 16, the teams were further cut to the ‘Elite Eight’ – Ateneo, Mapua, FEU, Letran in Group X and San Beda, Arellano U, DLSU and UE in Group Y.

Curiously, after the Elite Eight, the Final Four that came out were teams from the UAAP and the NCAA – Ateneo, DLSU, Letran and San Beda.

La Salle and Ateneo eventually faced each other in the Finals with the Green Archers clinching the championship while Letran won over San Beda for third.

The champion took home the Manuel V. Pangilinan Perpetual trophy (they get to keep it for a year) and also won a P500,000 scholarship grant from FilOil Flying V. There were also P400,000 in prizes from SBP President Mr. Pangilinan. Further, the Green Archers will represent the country in the Universiade Games in Serbia next year.

It was indeed a grueling yet satisfying search for the national collegiate champions of the year. Congratulations are in order for the La Salle squad for their victory, and while some are disappointed that provincial teams were unable to enter the final levels of competition, we are certain that they will prepare better for future competitions.

We all know that the countryside does not lack for talent and skills in the game.

One damper in the proceedings was a statement attributed to the winning coach, Franz Pumaren who was said to have stated that the Finals proved the dominance of the UAAP over the NCAA. This was certainly uncalled for since as far as I know the tournament did not seek to settle a score between the two Manila collegiate leagues. Is there one to settle?

Ateneo beat Letran by one point in the Final Four and La Salle barely squeaked by San Beda, also by one. That’s dominance?

Perhaps we all need to revisit the objectives of these collegiate leagues-they’re for sportsmanship, camaraderie and yes, a test of athletic endurance and prowess. But the last time I looked, it was not one of gamesmanship, one-upmanship or breast-thumping.

We cannot allow ourselves to get all caught up in the hoopla and the passion and lose sight of the more important things in life aside from winning a basketball game.

One damper in the proceedings was a statement attributed to the winning coach, Franz Pumaren who was said to have stated that the Finals proved the dominance of the UAAP over the NCAA. This was certainly uncalled for since as far as I know the tournament did not seek to settle a score between the two Manila collegiate leagues. Is there one to settle?[/size]

Ateneo beat Letran by one point in the Final Four and La Salle barely squeaked by San Beda, also by one. That’s dominance?[/size][/b]

Primer on 2009 Philippine Collegiate Championship Games

After the completion of the provincial “mother leagues” and the Regional Championships, the next stage of the nationwide multi-level search for the best collegiate teams in the country is the Qualifying Zonal games.

At this level of the competitions, the Regional Champions from North/Central Luzon, South Luzon-Bicol, Visayas (excluding Cebu) and Mindanao will compete with teams from Metro-Manila and Cebu leagues. The Qualifying Zonal games will determine the teams that will join the “Sweet 16” Finals of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Championship games.

Luzon-MetroManila Qualifying Zonal Games
Nine teams will advance to the Luzon-MetroManila Qualifying Zonal games, namely: the North/Central Luzon Regional Champion; the South Luzon-Bicol Regional Champion; the Champion teams from the following MetroManila leagues, NCAA-South, CUSA, UCAA, NCRAA, UCLAAI, and the sixth placers in the UAAP and NCAA.

The top three (3) teams will qualify to the “Sweet 16” Finals. The games are scheduled to be held starting November 6 at either Lucena City or Naga City.

VisMin-MetroManila Qualifying Zonal Games
The eight teams that will advance to this stage are: the Visayas (excluding Cebu) Regional Champion; the Mindanao Regional Champion; NAASCU Champion; three CESAFI teams (no. 2, no.3 and no.4) and the fifth placers of UAAP and NCAA.

The top four (4) teams will qualify to the “Sweet 16” Finals. The games will be held on November 9 at Cebu City.

Starting with 212 teams belonging to 27 provincial and Metro-Manila leagues, the multi-level competitions will reduce the number of teams that will compete for the title, Philippine Collegiate Champion for 2009, to the “Sweet 16” Finalists.

Ateneo leads 'Sweet 16' cast
(The Philippine Star) Updated September 23, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Ateneo de Manila leads eight schools that have secured spots in the “Sweet 16” Finals of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Championship.

The Blue Eagles, last year’s losing finalists, emerged as the No. 1 team at the close of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) elimination round.

The rest of the UAAP teams that reached the Final Four also made it into the finals, namely: Far Eastern University, University of the East and University of Santo Tomas.

The semifinalists in the ongoing National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) also booked berths in the PCC finals. They are unbeaten San Sebastian, San Beda College, Jose Rizal University and Letran.

Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) chairman Reynaldo Gamboa said eight more slots would be filled up, including one berth reserved for the champion of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI).

Seven slots would be disputed in zonal qualifying games set in November in Naga City, Cebu City, and Metro Manila.

Defending champion De La Salle University, which placed fifth in the UAAP, will have to go through zonal qualifying on Nov. 12-14 in Naga City.

Adamson University, on the other hand, will compete in the Cebu zonal qualifying on Nov. 4-8.

The fifth and sixth placers in the NCAA will also see action in zonal qualifying. At present, Arellano University Chiefs, College of Saint Benilde Blazers and Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals are in contention.

Learned through Archers' Pride forum that the management of PCCL has offered a settlement package for the brouhaha caused by its inabibility to meet all of its commitments towards the Archers during its last tournament. DLSU accepted. Terms and conditions of the settlement could not be disclosed. Thus, I guess this is the end of the story.

PCCL Vis-Min zonal up in Bacolod
Updated November 05, 2009 12:00 AM



MANILA, Philippines - The Visayas-Mindanao zonal phase of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League
got under way yesterday in Bacolod City.

Arellano University, University of San Carlos, West Negros University and Holy Trinity College from General Santos City will dispute the two available spots in a single-round robin format.

The top two teams in the three-day event will advance into the “Sweet 16” Finals set Nov. 23 in Metro Manila.

Arellano played as a guest team in the NCAA and finished fifth while USC placed fourth in the just-ended CESAFI championship.

West Negros, the 11-time NOPSSCEA champion, won the Visayas regional tournament while Holy Trinity was the surprise winner in the Mindanao regional phase.

Meanwhile, another Zonals tournament begins today in Cebu City featuring UAAP fifth-placer Adamson, NAASCU champion San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite, sister school University of San Jose Recoletos, the CESAFI third-placer and league runner-up University of Cebu.

The top two teams will also earn a spot in the Sweet 16.

The third and last Zonals will be held Nov. 12-14 in Naga City with defending national champion La Salle heading the cast.

The Zonal winners will join early qualifiers UAAP champion Ateneo, NCAA champion San Sebastian College, University of the East, Far Eastern University, University of Santo Tomas, San Beda, Jose Rizal University and Letran in the finals of the nationwide series sponsored by PLDT and Smart.

PCCL chairman Rey Gamboa also announced the launching of the “Champions League Fantasy” contest. All fans are invited to submit their top choices of the seven teams that will advance to the “Sweet 16” Finals.

Those submitting the most number of correct choices will be given surprise gifts.

“Joining the contest is easy and for free. Just log in at the official PCCL website, www.CollegiateChampionsLeague.net and submit your choices. One can submit as many entries on or before Nov. 15,” Gamboa said.

CESAFI earns distinction from PCCL organizers
By GGM (The Freeman)
Updated August 02, 2010 12:00 AM

CEBU, Philippines – The organizers of the 2010 Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) led by chairman Rey Gamboa and tournament director coach Joe Lipa said that they effected two major changes in the tournament format by sending to the Sweet 16 the champion and runner-up of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI), giving the latter due credit for being the stakeholder of Cebu's primary collegiate teams.

The first round of CESAFI and the Regional Islands eliminations, which is the qualifying round to the Sweet 16, will be played at the Cebu Coliseum from November 14-17 via knockout match. The CESAFI champion will take on the Vis-Min Zonal no. 2 qualifier, while the runner-up will go up against the Vis-Min Zonal no.1 qualifier.

Not only that, the CESAFI third and fourth placers will also advance to the VisMin Zonals, joining the Visayas and Mindanao regional champions that will possibly give the CESAFI four slots to the Sweet 16 depending on their performances in the regional level.

The zonal elimination games in Cebu will be televised by the ABS-CBN.

Teams from Manila will also be coming over here for the Southern Islands finals and they are the no. 3 team in the UAAP and the no. 4 in the NCAA. The winner in Cebu will be crowned as Southern Islands Collegiate Basketball Champion and will automatically get a slot for the Final Four.

The Northern/Central Luzon elimination will be hosted by Vigan, Ilocos Sur, while the Southern Luzon/Bicol qualifying will be hosted by Sorsogon.

From 16 squads, it will be trimmed down do eight, with four teams coming from Luzon including Metro Manila and two each from the CESAFI and Vis-Min regional champions.

Since the PCCL's inception in 2003, no team yet outside Manila has won the crown, not even the University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers who advanced into the Final Four for at least five times in seven apperances. The defending champon is the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) Blue Eagles.

The PCCL national champion, who will take possession of the Manuel V. Pangilinan bronze trophy for one year, will receive P500,000, while the second to fourth will pocket P200,000, P100,000 and P50,000, respectively.

The members of the winning team will also recieve gift items and cash amounting to P400,000 for the champion, P200,000 for the runner-up, P100,000 for the third and P50,000 for the fourth placer. (THE FREEMAN)

Sam Miguel
10-20-2010, 11:57 AM
^^^ Maybe someone can clarify something: is that UCLAAI the same as the UCLAA ruled by St Francis of Assisi of Coach Gabby Velasco the last two years?

If not, how come the ISAA started by the late Tany Gonzalez gets an automatic slot after only one season running (their inaugural last season) while UCLAA with its third season set for the second semester of this year and its more established schools such as St Francis, PCCr, De Ocampo and NCBA does not seem to be on the minds at all of the PCCL brass?

It is not as if St Francis has been idle: they are in the semifinals of the Fr Martin Cup 2nd Division after sweeping their elims 8 - 0. Why isn't the UCLAA getting any love from PCCL?

IN a tournament as short as this one, teams cannot afford to trail early with a huge deficit.

The Arellano University gym hosted the Luzon-Metro Manila Zonal round last November 10, 2010. From a field of 12 teams, only 4 of them will advance to the Sweet 16 phase of the 2010 Philippine Collegiate Champions League.

After the two games that were held in the morning, four more teams saw action in the afternoon with the tip-off of the third game featuring the NAASCU Champions, the University of Manila Hawks and the Champions of the NCAA-South, the University of Perpetual Help – Laguna Saints.

KEN Acibar’s two-handed slam dunk and Emmanuel Mbe’s monster blocks were just some of the moves these UAAP superstars introduced to their respective opponents this afternoon.

NCAA? UAAP? It didn’t matter. As long as the school was a member of either of these two leagues, their foes were treated to a lesson in advanced basketball.

The third game for the second day (November 11, 2010) of the Luzon-Metro Manila zonal phase in the 2010 Philippine Collegiate Champions League featured the University of the East Red Warriors who finished the 73rd season of the UAAP at 6th place with a 6-8 record. Their opponents were the champions of the NCAA-South, the University of Perpetual Help-Laguna Saints.

UNLIKE the previous year, wherein the University of the East Red Warriors and the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights both secured an automatic berth in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) Sweet 16, this year, both squads had to earn that right to be among the country’s best.

UE, who finished at 6th place in the UAAP this season with a 6-8 record, easily dismantled the University of Manila Hawks, 100-74 last Friday, November 12, 2010 at the Arellano Gym. It was the final day of the Luzon-Metro Manila zonal leg in the 2010 PCCL.

USC surprises UV
By Rommel C. Manlosa
Thursday, November 18, 2010

THE University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors picked the right time to beat University of the Visayas Green Lancers, 71-64, booting out the nine-time Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. champions from in the Sweet 16 of the 2010 Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) at the Cebu Coliseum yesterday.

In the main game, reigning Cesafi champions, University of Cebu Webmasters bucked a slow start to rout the University of Iloilo Wildcats, 96-66, to move to the quarterfinal round.

However, only one Cebu team will advance to the semifinal round as the Warriors and the Webmasters will meet each other for the first seat to the Final Four in the main game today at 4 p.m.

Today’s opener is between the UAAP runner-up Far Eastern University Tamaraws and the NCAA third placer Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers at 2 p.m.

FEU won two of the previous PCCL titles in 2004 and 2005 under the leadership of
Arwind Santos and Dennis Miranda.

Roller coaster

It was a roller coaster ride for the Warriors who lost a slim lead in the first quarter, trailed in the next two quarters before pulling some aces in the final canto to eliminate the Green Lancers.

Sam Jordan Hermosa scored 10 of his 25 points in the final quarter to lead USC to the quarterfinal round.

Joven Cid Cortes also added 18 and Michael Cantonao finished with 13 for the Warriors, while Ralf Olivares scored 15 points and John Abad added 12 for the Green Lancers.

In the second game, UC broke used a 14-0 run in the third quarter to put up 38-points lead, 86-48, for an easy sailing to the quarterfinal round.

Val Cueva scored the game high 15 points from the 3-point land, while Junemar Fajardo was again unstoppable as he scored 14 points. Fajardo also had 16 rebounds, three assists and three blocked shots.

Gerald Ampoon scored 15 points, Kevin Julianne added 14 and Krist Edward Pao had 12 for UC. Bernard Tibor led the Wildcats with 15.

Parala was provoked, according to Fr. Lana's logic. The superior genes of Mbe provoked the local player and the dirty play and rough tactics are well justified.

MIT Cardinals defeated the eventual PCCL CHAMPEON NU Bulldogs. I'm so eager to know what would be the reactions of Sampaloc Kid and his bossing. L0L

Games today (Filoil Arena)

2 pm -- San Sebastian vs Adamson
4 pm -- Ateneo vs Lyceum

LIVE on Studio 23

As for Parala, his action is not covered by the PCCL's rules, which is why he will still play in Mapua's next game.

baste lost by 11 points to ADU today.

Looking at their lineup, i'd say baste is now a team as strong as letran.
