Tigers open wild-card bid vs Saints

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.

Sana maulit ang upset ng STI over UST sa wildcard phase na ito! :D

But they have to get pass powerhouse teams like EAC, Lyceum and De Ocampo. I believe these teams are very high caliber teams for making it to this level of competition.

Superhuman effort will be needed from the rookies if STI want to pull this one off.
Mendoza and Mabayo must and must contribute BIG in scoring, defense and rebound.

Matira matibay na!!! This is the Wildcard Phase!

Go Olympians!

UST is in the wildcard phase because only the top 4 UAAP teams made it to the Sweet 16 or the zonals outright. Same goes with NCAA's top 4. Check out the PCCL website:

According to the PCCL PowerPoint download, this is the rationale behind the WILD CARD Phase:

"WILD CARD entries are the top three (3) teams of the Metro Manila elimination games to be conducted in the 1st & 2nd week of October. Invited teams would include Runner-ups & 3rd placers of different leagues such as NAASCU, CUSA, UCAA & others."

Isa pala ipinagtataka ko is dun sa format na naka PowerPoint sa website ng PCC,*
3 Wildcard lang ang kukunin at sasama sa Zonal, pero dito sa Wildcard phase di ba may Bracket A at Bracket B, if hindi maghaharap ang Bracket A at B panu madedetermine ang top 3 teams ng Wildcard? ???
Kac after magharap ang mga teams sa bawat bracket we will still have Bracket A top2 and Bracket B top2, which adds to four??? ???

Top 2 teams from each group will get the zonals slot. Round robin against SAME group (3 games) then the teams with the best WIN-LOSS cards will advance. Wala na crossover, 3-day tournament lang sya. Obviously, a pair of W's will almost assure you of that slot...


Isa pala ipinagtataka ko is dun sa format na naka PowerPoint sa website ng PCC,
3 Wildcard lang ang kukunin at sasama sa Zonal, pero dito sa Wildcard phase di ba may Bracket A at Bracket B, if hindi maghaharap ang Bracket A at B panu madedetermine ang top 3 teams ng Wildcard?

Nalito din ako una but the PCC organizers cleared it up before the WC phase (And quite obsolete yung format sa powerpoint format because of recent changes, etc etc...)

FOUR teams na ang kukunin from the WC phase... Because previously, there were supposed to be seeded "host teams" what happened was that since sa Manila na yung Zonals, it was only fair to open up those slots as one of the WILDCARDS.

I don't think there was no need for changes doon sa Powerpoint kasi naman talagang NCR yung suggested venues for Zones 1 and 2. and talagang may wildcards kasali doon aside from host representation. Yung Zone 3 and 4 walang wildcard entries.

Zone 3's supposed host school WLC, and consequently, EVSU reportedly begged off giving the wildcard slot to UC. What is not certain however is whether they really did withdraw voluntarily or was there pressure to accommodate UC as wild card entry without the benefit of wildcard qualifying

Well, there's a big difference between the "host school" and a wildcard slot--- clearly, the former is by invite (volunteer?) and the other one will have to be contested. PCC actually had plans for the Zonals to happen in the provinces. However, because of the strategical location of NCR relative to the composition of zones (budget-wise, indeed that is practical) What happened was nadagdagan yung wildcards slot nga.

As for Vis-Min, like you i am at a loss how UC got it. Maybe another wildcard tourney for such areas would (again) be too costly? Or that the PCC recognizes CESAFI as Cebu's (or that region/area) premier league a la its respect for NC/UA? Nothing wrong with that since i believe they are.

i understand where you are coming from about that. Most schools (or organizations) would feel that way. But as i've said over the last few days, the system is far from perfect, it's a matter of promoting inter-collegiate (local) leagues int he future so that the PCC (and the public) will know if one league deserves a slot more than the other...

Team Standings

Scenario for Bracket B:
*LYCEUM has defeated both EAC and STI, therefore even if they fall against the winless SFAC team they will still advance to the zonals.
*Winner of the EAC vs. STI match-up will join LYCEUM in the zonals.

Bracket A W L
University of Sto. Tomas 2 0
Las Pinas College 1 1
St. Clare College 1 1
SFAC 0 2

Scenario for Bracket A:
*IF UST, SCC win; both schools advance
*IF UST wins, SCC loses; both schools advance
• SCC and LPC will be tied for 2nd place, but win-over-the-other rule apply (FIBA tiebreaker rules)
*IF UST loses, SCC loses; UST and LPC advance to the zonals
*IF UST loses, SCC wins;
• Triple-tie for UST, SSC and LPC
o FIBA tie-breaker apply (goal average)

Triple-tiebreaker scenario:
UST (+9 vs. SCC, N vs. LPC) = +9 + N
SCC (-9 vs. UST, +8 vs. LPC) = -1
LPC (-8 vs. SCC, N vs. UST) = -8 + N

(LPC vs. UST)
IF LPC wins by +11, LPC and SCC advance
IF LPC wins by +8 (but not +11), LPC and UST advance
IF LPC wins by +6 and below, SCC and UST advance

Yeah, tough task ahead of the Blue Lions really. Imagine the pressure of winning against UST, then winning by as much as 6 POINTS to advance. Of course, the Saints will have to take care of business first against St. Francis.

ALSO remember, TOMORROW is going to be the last playing date of the wildcard series, after tomorrow's results the slots will be decided!

Goal average (a rather more specifc point differential actually) ang gagamitin kasi nga FIBA rules, the figures i used were "rounded out" so to speak kasi by hundredths/tenths of a difference unless you really want to go there and speak 0.231 goal average for teams A and 0.321 for team B, etc etc etc

In Zone 3, we have the AMACLC Titans, CSJL Knights, University of San Jose Jaguards, University of Cebu Webmasters and the Region 4 champion (to be decided this weekend). And finally in the last zone, there are the FEU Tamaraws, Xavier U Crusaders, Ateneo de Zamboanga, University of Mindanao Wildcats, Cagayan de Oro College Scorpions and the University of San Carlos Warriors.

UST, two others clinch zonal berths

Saturday, October 18, 2008

University of Santo Tomas, Emilio Aguinaldo College and St Clare College of Caloocan gained the final three spots for the zonal phase after beating separate opponents on the final day of the 2008 Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship wildcard tournament at the Makati Coliseum.

UST finished the three-day tournament with a 3-0 slate by eliminating Las Piñas College, 69-56, while EAC escaped past STI College, 90-88. St Clare, meanwhile, survived against St. Francis of Assisi College, 70-66. They will join Lyceum of the Philippines University for next month’s zonal phase against teams from Luzon.

Lyceum survived a gallant stand by De Ocampo Memorial College in the fourth quarter to post a 77-75 win. Regie Rimando scored 18 points as the Pirates ended with a 3-0 record in Group A.

The Growling Tigers leaned on the efforts of Dylan Ababou’s 24 points along with Mark Canlas’ 11 as they grabbed a commanding 20-point halftime lead at 41-21.

But Kenny Bullo, Sereno Cunial and Marlon Pening combined to cut LPC’s deficit to 10 points, 59-49, with seven minutes to go in the match only for Ababou to score six points in the remaining minutes of the game to keep the Blue Lions at bay.

On the other hand, the Generals relied on the heroics of big man Lowell Yaya and point guard Argel Mendoza’s in the fourth quarter to shut down a pesky rally by the Olympians from a seven-point deficit in the fourth quarter.
Yaya led EAC with 18 points.

while Mendoza and Julius Quiambao added 14 points each as they booted STI out of contention after they finished third in last year’s tournament.

“The game against Lyceum was a wake-up call for us so talagang todo kami ngayon against STI,” said EAC head coach Nomar Isla, who once steered the team to a UCAA three-peat from 2004-2006. “We’re glad na makakasama kami sa susunod na zonal.”

Mendoza recovered from claiming a technical foul for wiping his hands to a game official by hitting six points in the last two minutes while Yaya converted a triple with less than three minutes to go that put EAC on top for good, 78-77.

Lanky Aries Parinas, the NAASCU rookie of the year, scored 20 points while big man Richmond Sibal added 16 as St Clare built a 22-point lead early in the third period before James Castanarez and Rex Leynes led an insurmountable comeback to tie the game at 63-63 with 2:27 left.

But a basket by Sibal off a spin move and a driving layup by Mac Opalia gave the Saints a three-point cushion, 67-64, with 37.5 ticks to go before they eventually stop the Doves’ chance of tying the game on a bungled trey by Jan Dulawan with one second left.

“We’re happy na makakalaro kami sa zonal,” said veteran head coach Jimmy Mariano of St Clare. “Minsan lang naming makalaban yung mga teams sa buong Pilipinas so it’s an honor for the school.”

The zonal tournaments are scheduled next month in Manila with UST and EAC joining Mapua Institute of Technology, University of Luzon from Pangasinan, St Louis University from Baguio City and NCAA South runner-up Lyceum of Batangas in Zone 1.

In Zone 2, St Clare and Lyceum will meet University of the East, University of Nueva Caceres from Naga City, NCAA South champion Don Bosco Technical College and two-time NCRAA title-holder Arellano University.

Iyon din ang sabi sa akin kahapon nung head ng tech comm. Pero binago nga nila, as seen on the website.

Siguro dahil champion ang Arellano sa FMC the organizers deemed it proper to give them a slot in the zonals. And since all games will be played in Makati coliseum, the automatic slot for the host school becomes vacant. Kaya siguro UST lang among the wild cards ang napunta sa zone 1, unlike in zone 2 tatlo.

Don't count St. Claire out. Their core can give any team a run for its money. But, for me, Lyceum poses the biggest threat among non UAAP/NCAA teams. Buti nalang UST is not bracketed with them. Oops, I forgot, Mapua and Arellano are bracketed with UST

Parinas and Sibal are two lanky but energetic big men plus Edu Mustre has been an offensive spark off the bench.

Hmmm, with Mapua and Arellano in the same group papano si coach Leo nyan?

I caught a glimpse of the match where St. Claire was ahead by 20 points in the 3rd kanto.
St. Claire's uniform resembles that of the Argentinian Men's basketball team.

The format for Zones 1 and 2 (which i believe will be used as well in 3 and 4) will be:

+ 6 teams divided into two groups (Group A and Group B)
+ Teams slug it out once against their group mates (minimum: 2 games)
+ Top in each group advances to the Sweet Sixteen (FIBA Tiebreaker rules apply)

Ok, point taken. But even in the regionals (provincial) even the schools had to come up with a budget of their own for their travel and such although the host team/city and sponsors did provide financial support as well (This was true in a couple of regionals) In one regional, there was ZERO sponsor (except for PCC itself)

Again, this is very doable and i agree with a more "national" feel at any stage of the PCC. But it's all about the money and the logistics would have to be studied in the years to come.

Great idea actually. But last time i looked BTV/CS9 will be covering games (four total) in zones 1 and 2 only... For zones 3 and 4, they'd be sending a team to cover the event as news and not as full game coverage (Yeah, that s^cks and some, but we go back to logistics)

In my experience watching the PCC Finals last year, where it is open to all FOR FREE,* the venue in the Arena still failed to have a huge gate attendance (except for the Ateneans of course, they certainly filled their portion of the bleacher).

But i think this will be changed specially if there will be Another ATENEO-LA SALLE duel or if in the FINALS lets say 2 Southern Squad make it and the Finals game be held at a venue in the South, I think the tickets will be sold out. Well just an opinion.* ;)

Somebody mentioned bracket assignments sa zonals are determined by drawing lots. check http://www.gameface.ph/forums/index.php?topic=4090.0

I believe otherwise taking cue from the above quoted posts from our good friend in Ormoc. So now we know the bracket assignments for zones 1, 2 and 3. Interesting how they will assign the brackets for teams in Zone 4. My belief is that this should have been pre-assigned. My hunch would be the most logical assignments for Zone 4 would be FEU and USC on separate brackets, COC-Phinma and Xavier U also on separate brackets:

Bracket A:
FEU
Xavier U
AdZU

Bracket B:
USC
UM
COC-Phinma

That's good sir, i believe that also, mukhang mas mabenta nga ang mga games na tulad ng PCC sa provinces* ;D. The ticket sales will really be of great help. Kaya nga rin na mention ko sa taas na kung if ever* 2 southern squad ang makapasok sa Finals mas maigi na sa south gawin ang Game kac basing from last year hindi gaano talaga mabenta dito (or is it because hindi rin naging successful ang marketing dito).

Manilans set to complete PCCL Sweet 16
By Jasmine W. Payo
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 04:28:00 10/31/2008

Semifinalists from the UAAP and NCAA lead 24 collegiate teams shooting for the eight remaining slots in the Sweet 16 Finals of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship League.

Mapua Institute of Technology, fourth placer in the NCAA, heads the Zone 1 cast that also includes wild-card winner University of Santo Tomas, St. Louis University, University of Luzon, Arellano University and Lyceum University-Batangas.

University of the East has been picked as Zone 2 favorite over University of Nueva Caceres, Don Bosco College-Mandaluyong, Lyceum of the Philippines University, Emilio Aguinaldo College and St. Claire College.

Zone 1 and 2 games will be played at the Makati Coliseum from Nov. 3-6. Admission is free.

Letran College, though, is tipped to have a rough time against top Visayan teams in Zone 3 set Nov. 9 to 11 in Ormoc City. The zone also features West Negros University, University of San Jose Recoletos, University of Cebu, BIT Int’l College and AMA Computers.

Far Eastern University banners the Zone 4 contest that will also have host Xavier University, Ateneo de Zamboanga, University of Mindanao, University of San Carlos and Capitol University. Games will be held Nov. 14 to 16 at the Xavier gym in Cagayan de Oro City.

The top two teams in the four zonal competitions will join UAAP champion Ateneo de Manila University and runner-up De La Salle University, three-time NCAA titlist San Beda College and second placer Jose Rizal University in the Sweet 16.

Other outright qualifiers are champion teams San Sebastian College-Cavite (National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities), University of Visayas (Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc.), Manuel L. Quezon University (Colleges and Universities Sports Association) and Universal College of Nursing (Universities and Colleges Athletic Association).

Warriors seek spot in Sweet 16 versus Generals

Monday, November 3, 2008

Former champion University of the East starts its bid for a spot in the FilOil Flying V “Sweet 16” Final Challenge as the Warriors clash with the Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC) side today in the zonal phase of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship games.

The Warriors, who won the national title two years ago but failed to defend it last year, battle the Generals, a wildcard qualifier, in the 2 p.m. main game.

Fr. Martin Cup champion Arellano University, meanwhile, takes on Region 1 titlist St. Louie University at 10 a.m. while NCAA-South runner-up Lyceum of Batangas tangles with Luzon University at 12 noon.

Three regional champions and nine qualifiers from Metro-Manila leagues are competing for finals slots.

The teams are divided into four groups with Group A composed of Mapua, Lyceum-Batangas and University of Luzon. Arellano University; St. Louis University and University of Santo Tomas make up Group B while Group C includes Lyceum-Manila, Don Bosco-Mandaluyong and University of Nueva Caceres. UE, EAC and St. Clare are in Group D.

The top team in each group will join Ateneo, San Beda, De La Salle, Jose Rizal University, San Sebastian-Cavite, University of Visayas, MLQU and UCN in the elite “Sweet 16”.

Rey Gamboa, Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) chairman, said that admission is free to all the zonal games at Makati Coliseum starting today up to Nov. 6.

This is in line with the PCCL’s objective of providing the students and collegiate basketball fans the opportunity to watch their alma mater teams compete with the best teams coming from the different regions nationwide.

Gamboa also announced that there is an ongoing survey as to the top choices for the remaining eight slots in the “Sweet 16”.

Interested fans may log in at www.CollegiateChampionsLeague.net and submit your choices of teams that will advance to the FilOil Flying V “Sweet 16” Final Challenge. Those with most number of correct choices will receive surprise gifts from the sponsors.

Nakita ko ung 1st 2 quarters ng UE vs EAC, pero di ko natapos kac may lakad pa ;D sa Tindi ng pressure defense ng UE talagang hirap ang EAC kahit maitawid man lang bola sa halfcourt. who was that foreign player of EAC? Tofue ba yun? may laro rin pero not enough to overcome UE's fullcourt pressure defense!

Warriors, 2 others near ‘Sweet 16’
By Joey Villar
Tuesday, November 4, 2008

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.

Don Bosco defeated University of Nueva Caceres; EAC won over St. Clare and Mapua notched a victory over Lyceum-Batangas.

Don Bosco now has a chance to advance to the Sweet Sixteen, without complications with a win over Lyceum Manila tomorrow. EAC bounced back after an ugly loss vs. University of the East yesterday but needs a St. Clare win over UE for a chance (So, tough luck for the Generals)

Mapua, on the other hand, set a date with first day winners University of Luzon tomorrow with the winner of that game advancing to the Sweet Sixteen.

Saw UNC's win against Enverga University (from Quezon) and was impressed with their composure and i thought they showed promise. However, it's not the Sweet Sixteen that they advanced to but the zonals--- still a feat in its own. They were playing good vs. Don Bosco up until crunchtime... Too bad really since it was a close affair almost 90 per cent of the game and they just folded right at the end...

The game of Lyceum Manila and Don Bosco today will pretty much decide if UNC still has a chance of advancing to the PCC Sweet Sixteen.

hi been there in the opening game of the zonal and also stayed for a while in the wildcard phase games, unfortunately there are very few expectators,in fact only a handful, there are plenty of seats available and yes you should bring your own band and drums because the only noise you will hear are the drumbeats, pretty deafening i should say. But in the halftime and breaks the coliseum becomes silently calm* ;D ;D ;D

Good to hear that one, really shows how you love your school and the passion for the game. We need more of that especially from the provincial schools...

i was at the Naga City gym for the Region 2 championships and when UNC battled Ateneo de Naga i can really say that it was even better than some of the NCAA/UAAP games in Manila because of the crowd support.

Here's a little insider info: Zone 2 Championships almost happened in Naga City! The problem was, again, logistics as the host school (UNC or Ateneo) and the local organizers could just not meet the expectations/demands of the PCC. i believe if the Zonals was to happen in Naga, the host team invited would be Ateneo de Naga beacuse UNC had qualified anyway. However, because of the said logistical issues, the zonals happened in Manila and a wildcard slot had to be added.

i imagine that will certainly generate excitement for what could have been another provoincial zonal. But anyway, i'd like to see the glass as half-full--- there are unprecedented efforts being made both from the PCC and its provincial partners.

thanks for the generous and wondrous appreciation of what transpired during zonal elimination here in naga. I am an alumnus of both schools (Ateneo & UNC) and aptly describe myself as an "atenean by blood..UNCean by heart". I heard a lot about the frenzied plan to stage the zonal elimination here in naga but sadly speaking things hasn't been too good for both camps in deciding which and where the elimination shall be held.. :-[ ???It was cited that logistics was the culprit why it was not held here in Naga especially on the media mileage. Anyways, its nice to see our homeboys battling it out for supremacy...thanks...go greyhounds!!!

UST vs ARELLANO is the game to watch today!

11-06-2008, 01:00 PM
^ Yes, that's the match to watch indeed and one of the four games that will be aired over the next couple of weeks on BTV leading up to the S16.

Also the UNC-Lyceum game will be big... Lyceum needs a victory (or lose by 6 points) to up their* bracket record to 2-0 and advance... But UNC has a small chance but they need to win by over 11 points to gain that S16 slot.

The quotients:

Don Bosco: + 1 - (+9 vs. UNC, -8 vs Lyceum)
Lyceum:* +8 + N (+8 over Don Bosco, N vs. UNC)
UNC: -9 + N (-9 vs. Don Bosco, N vs. Lyceum)

Don Bosco wil hope that UNC beat Lyceum by 8 or 9 points only to advances... (Again, these are whole numbers we are talking about since FIBA uses that virtual quotient system using the GOAL AVERAGE, which computes the differences by the hundredths of a decimal which makes it a little more complicated. Let's just say we'll cross that bridge when we get there... Say UNC wins by 10 which will tie them at +1 quotient and we'll have to consider the goal difference/average to get the exact numbers...)

But let's see what UV has got. UE is a UAAP Final Four team, hence it will be a big test for them. 6'11" Greg Slaugther will be tested by the frontline of Pari Llagas and Elmer Espiritu.

Tough luck for UV, though, because IF they get past UE, they will likely be facing DLSU.

How come nobody is updating the latest results on the PCCL website, and we have to go to the Gameface forums to get the latest results of the games?

AU Chiefs have arrived
By Joey Villar
Friday, November 7, 2008

Three-time Fr. Martin Cup champion Arellano U showed its readiness to join the NCAA as it stunned 2006 UAAP champion Santo Tomas, 69-59, yesterday to barge into the “Sweet 16” of the 2008 Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Makati Coliseum.

Orlando Daroya, priming up for his PBL debut for Pharex tomorrow, dished out a double-double performance of 32 points and 10 rebounds while coming up with five steals to power the Chiefs to the big win and a clash with UCAA champion Universal College of Nursing in the main draw.

“I guess teams will start to take notice of us now,” said Arellano coach Leo Isaac, who made a record of sort after he became the first mentor to steer two teams in the Sweet 16 after leading Mapua into the tournament proper the other day.

University of the East and Lyceum likewise advanced to the next phase by routing St. Clare, 108-80, and University of Nueva Caceres-Naga City, 81-60, respectively.

The Warriors arranged a showdown with the 6-9 George Slaughter-led Cebu champion University of Visayas while the Pirates will meet reigning UAAP titlist Ateneo.

The Chiefs, also the back-to-back NCRAA champions bidding to take Phil. Christian U’s slot in the NCAA next season, dominated the Tigers as they led from start to finish to boot out the fancied España-based squad, which missed the services of injured Jervy Cruz and Japs Cuan.

Arellano employed a man-to-man full-court trapping defense to scuttle UST and sustained aggressive offensive game throughout the contest.

Dylan Ababou, a PBL star playing for Magnolia Purewater, scored 22 points for UST.

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

so the rest

DLSU
SAN BEDA
JRU
SSCR-C

are still waiting for the results of the Zone 3 and Zone 4 qualifier and their drawlots.

If i'm from the zone3 and 4 qualifier my first instinct is to get SSCR-C as my first opponent in the Sweet 16, its not that SSC is not that good, but damn I certainly would like to face (DLSU,BEDA or JRU) in the later rounds* :o

Sa case ng Letran, they wont have to deal with San Beda or JRU pero baka La Salle naman makalaban nila. Same with FEU, hindi nila makakalaban La Salle but San Beda and JRU naman possible opponents nila.

but if you move 2 of the Nov 10 games to Nov 11, there would still be teams paying twice in a day... it's really unavoidable... dumating na nga pala sila dito sa ORMOC :D

I think one more extra day of competitions would be best for all teams, keep them all playing on the same level, so to speak. Especially in such a critical tournament. 'Kayang-kaya ni MVP iyan.' :D

Well, it is now unavoidable since they changed the format. The 3-day schedule looked fine in the Luzon Zonals. Must be the demand for basketball in Ormoc they decided to add spice to the tournament. Question is will they apply the same format with the Mindanao Zonals this weekend?

In case Letran advances:

I dont know how coach Joe will do the drawing of lots but if Letran enters the next phase, its either La Salle or Letran are the eligible teams they will face. Teams from the same league are prohibited to meet in the Sweet 16.

During the Zone 1 and 2 tournament, coaches will initially pick two papers containing Bracket X or Y before picking the teams that they could face. With this, probably the second drawing will be eliminated in Letran's case.

@durden,

what is this format Im hearing from the Ormoc Zone 3 qualifiers that only those who figure in the finals will be in the Sweet 16. Given the schedule posted here earlier, it is possible now to place 2nd in a bracket but still have an outside chance of qualifying should they beat the top team from the other bracket.

We need to confirm this. If this is true, I smell another dead fish most likely to accommodate a certain team in Zone 3 who probably are not certain about topping their bracket. So sana the format should be the same sa Zone 1 and 2 where only the top teams in each bracket advance

In the CESAFI thread, they talk of banning recruiters from Manila... and yet when they see other provincial schools with potential players, they themselves are quick to "attack"... if you ask me, you let players choose wherever they want to be, it's not good to retain players who have desires of going to other teams for their heart will no longer be in their mother team, so it would be useless to keep that player... so kayong mga CESAFI teams, kung ayaw nyong maagawan ng players ng teams from Manila, practice what you preach, otherwise wag na kayong mag-reklamo kung may Manila recruiters, because that's just the way it is right now...

Night Game 1: USJ-R def. BIT-IC - 99-74
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

I rooted for UC kahit garapalan nilang lapitan ang top player ko kasi enamored na ako sa Ormocanons and Cebuanos... but still I didn't like the way some of the audience behaved against Letran... sabagay part na ng kantyawan yan... lalo ang mukha pinagdidiskitahan...

i believe it's just the beginning and the future looks bright(er) for the PCC. Somewhere along the way the PCC organizers will have to look hard into it. Maybe an even longer tournament and a dragged format of sorts? Media coverage is indeed CRUCIAL and how the local government and local sponsors can support that aspect will be vital to the actual possibility.

i definitely agree that if there is a Southern team (or any provincial team in other cases) the stadium attendance will be better than that of a Manila venue. However, how do you think the turnout will be if say a couple of teams from NCR do make it to the Finals, would the crowd be as supportive?

Hopefully gate attendance will be better than last year.

Maaring mapuno yung venue if
(1) dalawang big schools from the Metro ang maglaban (100 % Pwede)
(2) Maitapat na walang pasok sa school or office (pero last year i took a day off just to watch the Finals* ;D)*
(3) Kahit may ticket basta maiMarket ng maayos at madessiminate ng tama ang info ng event sa mga schools (especially dun sa schools ng mga nakapasok sa Finals at battle for third).

Kung sakali hindi sikat yung dalawa schools na maghaharap ehhh sana magkaroon parin ng support ang mga tao sa event (pero parang malabo yun, considering the mentality of most Filipinos).

Since the VAAA is going to push through this November 22, Ormoc will be the 2nd home of this tournament... I am not familiar with other cities' courts but the ones who are really into years and years of VisMin basketball tells me that this is the best one in the VisMin area... even the Cebu Coliseum, they tell me, don't have centralized air conditioning... the newly-constructed Tacloban Convention Center was damaged because of leaks dropping into the basketball court and it warped...

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

Knights, Jaguars near ‘Sweet 16’

Wednesday, November 12, 2008

Letran notched its second straight win as it thwarted University of Cebu, 86-76, in the Visayas zonal games of the Philippine Collegiate Championship at the Ormoc Dome, Ormoc City Monday.

The University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars routed the BIT Cruisers, 99-74, to match the Knights’ record and boost their bid for a spot in the Sweet 16.

The Cruisers bowed out of the race after losing to the West Negros U Mustangs, 62-90. The AMA Titans also kissed its hopes goodbye after bowing to the Univ. of Cebu Webmasters, 60-101.

In the crucial crossover matches, Letran faces West Negros U while USJR collides with CESAFI archrival University of Cebu for the two slots in the national finals.

The Philippine Collegiate Championship games, presented by Smart. PLDT, FilOil Flying V and KFC, will move to Cagayan de Oro City for the Mindanao zonal games at the Xavier University gym starting Friday.

that's the achilles heel of fajardo, foul trouble. it seems that he can't cope up and control his fouls.

yeah... I don't know much about basketball but I can really observe he's a little bit careless regarding fouls... I also noticed he is not that good in free throws... what he does best is blocking shots and rebounds of course...


ajardo's freethrow ritual isn't that bad actually, maganda yung dynamics except for one thing: he uses his palm on the release instead of fingers. As to fouls, I have been saying that at intebasket, he actually gets away from a lot of fouls

ok, I have seen him in 3 games so far... and his free throw %age might be around a poor less-than-50%... I have never seen him convert both free throws, it's always 1 or nothing at all... must be because of what you are saying...

Sensiya na sir_hodge ngayon lang naginternet :D

Anyway, sir_hodge told me that RJ Jazul won the game for Letran with one second left. Lumalang pa USJ-R during crunch but bungled four free throws late.

Kawawa Letran, either Baste Cavite or La Salle makakalaban nila but it end up the latter, Sweet 16 pa lang hirap na Knights.

As for USJ-R, it will be an interesting matchup as they will meet a run-and-gun and athletic lanky squad of Baste-Cavite (hope for our fellow Cavite school to do well).

Again, thanks to sir_hodge for the updates.

The boys are loud and clear, they are for USJR... it's the girls that I can't figure out who they are really rooting for... they both scream when both squads make their shots... the video you have seen of the shot must be from the excitement and Letran was sitting in that corner... In all matches Letran played (UC, USJ-R, AMA, WNU) the crowd was against them, Ormocanons really favor underdogs...

Maybe the girls are too much captivated by the handsome boys of Letran... :D

The Mindanao zonal games of the Philippine Collegiate Championship begin today with six teams, led by UAAP third placer Far Eastern U, vying for the last two remaining slots in the “Sweet 16” at Xavier University Gym, Cagayan de Oro City.

The other teams competing in the event presented by Smart, PLDT, FilOil Flying V and KFC are the University of Mindanao Wild Cats, the Ateneo de Zamboanga Blue Eagles, the Xavier University Crusaders, and wild card entries the University of San Carlos Warriors and the Capitol U Stallions.

In the recently concluded Visayas zonal at Ormoc City, Letran Knights swept their matches, including a tough 84-82 win over the University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars, to advance to the national finals.

Letran will meet Naascu champion San Sebastian-Recoletos de Cavite in the first round of Sweet 16.

University of San Juan-Recoletos also made it to the tournament proper along with University of Visayas. The Jaguars will take on NCAA champion the San Beda Red Lions in Group Y.

Other pairings in the first round of the knockout phase are Ateneo vs Lyceum, MLQU vs Cardinals; and Jose Rizal U vs one of the Mindanao zone winners in Group X.

In Group Y, it is UCN Golden Dragons vs Arellano U Chiefs; University of Visayas vs Univ. of the East; and La Salle vs one of the Mindanao zone winners.

The knockout format for the Sweet 16 should be reviewed for next year. It's ok in the US NCAA where 64 teams are competing in the March Madness. Here there are only 16 teams. I'd prefer the 16 teams are divided into two groups of 8 each where the bottom 4 of one group play the top 4 of the other group (much like the crossover now in the Zonals). All of these 16 teams are competitive and it's not farfetched that one team could make chamba for all sorts of reasons. They come to Manila and at least they get to play 4 games instead of one. Of course this will probably add a week or two in the schedule.

I am not in favor of expanded format. Many of the provincial teams are blown off the floor by Manila teams and we don't want to watch those. Once the provincial teams get competitive, then it's going to be ok.

Already logistics is a big problem, so i am not sure if that is a very good suggestions. And KO games are way, way more exciting so i think it is better to stick with the current system.

1. Ateneo ( I havent seen Lyceum play)
2. SBC (USJR will need all the luck in this one)
3. Mapua (I haven't seen MLQU play)
4. DLSU (They are lucky in their first round match)

5. Arellano (I haven't seen UCN play)
6. UE (over UV, i really think UE is the underdog here)
7. SSC-R C (against Letran, this will be very interesting Go NAASCU!)
8. FEU (since JRU is the top seeded, ill go for the underdog)

Sweet Sixteen:

Left bracket
Ateneo over Lyceum
Mapua over MLQU
JRU over FEU
SSC-Cavite over CSJL

Right Bracket
San Beda over USJ-R
Arellano over UCN
DLSU over USC
UE over UV



Left bracket

--I expect Ateneo to make the Finals. Pero mapanuri kong panonoorin ang laban ng Ateneo at Mapua sa rd-of-8. I expect the Cardinals to employ that paralyzing and debilitating slow break. Gaano kaya ka-epektib? (Btw, nasaan nga ba si dela Pena? He was drafted sa PBA but di ko pa nakita maglaro? Makakalaro pa ba siya dito sa PCCL?)

--JRU v FEU. Para sa akin ito ang pinakamagandang laban sa rd-of-16. Lahat ng position may magandang match-up.* In the last UAAP season, FEU was said to be the best foil to Ateneo because of its tall frontline. But that will be tested by an equally big and even more physical JRU lineup. I think JRU will take this one, dahil magpapakamatay talaga ang mga iyan manalo in their aim to get respect.

--An Ateneo-JRU semis on this side of the draw, imo, will be a mismatch! Norman has settled firmly on being the coach of this team and the Blue Eagles are smarter overall. Di yan kayang i-overcome ng kalibre ni Vanguardia at nang Bombers. Pero yung harapan ng players sa shaded area, JRU front line kontra Rabe and AkoSiNonoy, blockbuster yan!

--CSJL kontra SSC-R. If Daa's injury doesn't heal in time, SSC-R -Cavite should prevail. Two short teams will not go far in this bracket.





Right Bracket

--If it materializes, a San Beda- Arellano matchup in the rd-of-8 would be very interesting. The NCAA champion against a team applying for admission to the same league.* A case of one team wanting to prove its worth against the champion no less. Red Lions should prevail against a team that could only win by margin of 20pts or less over Team B's of the NCAA and UAAP. Teka, may rd-of-16 game pa pala ng San Beda kontra USJ-R. Well, all the Red Lions need to do is control the boards and that's it. Cebuano teams are by nature volume shooting teams. Deny them second shot attempts and you will beat them.

--DLSU and UE going up against Cebu based schools should be worth watching. But I will place my bets on the Manila teams based solely on coaching abilities. I saw the Cesafi playoffs on BTV, and I just find it hard to find ryhme and reason on the coaching. (Same also applies to the SBC-USJ-R game.)

--Sa pagtatagpo ng Archers at Warriors sa rd-of-8, I will pick DLSU. Though the last UAAP finals unmasked this Archers line-up as a two man team of JV and Rico and Dindo is a smart coach who can exploit that, I pick DLSU because--- with NABRO NOT blowing the whistle here, the Archers are in a perfect venue to prove its case against the officiating at the UAAP in the last finals. What better motivation can a losing finalist from a NABRO officiated league have?

--San Beda kontra DLSU, I don't expect San Beda to advance from here. Playing an unfamiliar but talented opponent will be difficult for Coach Frankie to make adjustments. Pag nag-abot na sa court ang mga koponan na minsanan lang magtagpo, you always ask how well the coaches will make the adjustments. You can have all the scouting reports on hand, watched the opponents game - live or taped, pero pag nagharap na kayo, iba yun. I don't think the RL coaching staff has the mettle to come up with the adjustments in this high-stakes one-game-affairs.

Finals: Ateneo v La Salle

Who will win? Without the stabilizing presence of a Chris Tiu, I'll give this to the Archers.

Over simplistic ba? Lintek, nagkakatuwaan tayo sa pag-pre-predict, gawing complicated baga! ;)
