Mabilis lang yan! Just be aware with Xavier coz they are a good team* *;)

they shouldn't be worried w/ xavier. they should be aware of UM instead.

i think lighter ang bracket ng FEU as they only have Xavier and Ateneo de Zamboanga to contend with, pero probably cannot take Xavier lightly too since that team has good size although I havent seen them play. Its a toss-up between USC and UM in the other bracket pero di rin pwedr i take lightly yung Capitol ba yun(or COC-Phinma), its always hard to play a team you are not familiar with

MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University scored a 105-55 demolition of Ateneo de Zamboanga Friday night to pace Group A of the Philippine Collegiate Championship Mindanao zonals at the Xavier University Gym in Cagayan de Oro City.

The Tamaraws, third placers in the UAAP, can clinch a spot in the Sweet 16 with a victory over Xavier University today.

Capitol University of Cagayan de Oro and University of San Carlos were playing in the lone Group B match as of press time.

Also vying for a slot from Group B is the University of Mindanao.

The group winners in the Mindanao zonals will meet either UAAP first runner-up La Salle or NCAA losing finalist Jose Rizal University in the Sweet 16 tournament starting on Nov. 24.

Among the players suiting up for the Tamaraws are Mark Barroca, JR Cawaling, Reil Cervantes, Jens Knuttel, Aldrech Ramos, Jon Alisbo and Jun Tanuan.

The other Sweet 16 pairings pit UAAP titlist Ateneo against Lyceum Manila, NCAA champion San Beda versus University of San Jose Recoletos, University of the East against University of Visayas, Mapua against Manuel L. Quezon University, Letran versus San Sebastian Cavite, and Arellano against Universal College of Nursing.

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.

MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University and University of San Carlos posted contrasting victories in the crossover semifinals of the Philippine Collegiate Championship Mindanao zonals to punch their tickets to the Sweet 16 in Manila.

The FEU Tamaraws, led by Andy Barroca and JR Cawaling coasted to a 105-55 victory over Capitol University Monday night at the Xavier University gym in Cagayan De Oro City.

The Warriors became the third team from Cebu City to enter the next phase and ousted the only Mindanao team in contention, Xavier U, 87-84, in the other semifinal match.

The Tamaraws set up a first-round duel with NCAA runner-up Jose Rizal University Bombers.

Sweet 16

Nov 29. vs JRU at Arena in San Juan. 4pm

FEU probably has the toughest assignment in the PCCL this year with JRU for Round 1 then if they survive mostly likely Letran and Ateneo in the later rounds.

11-20-2008, 01:46 PM
Inspired lang naman ang JRU pag San Beda ang kalaban. I doubt if the Bombers will have the same intensity against the Tamaraws in this game.

FEU won over JRU today. FEU was able to rotate only 3 guys - Ramos, Cervantes and Baracael - at the 4 and 5 positions. With Vinluan and Eguiloz playing center next season, Cervantes and Ramos can slide into the 4 position. Pipoo will be SF while Ryan Roose and the Olongapo guy will reinforce the guards. Looks formidable.

Far Eastern University looked very formidable as they disposed of Jose Rizal University 84-75 in the ongoing Fil Oil Flying V Sweet 16 tournament at the Arena.

Mark Barroca and JR Cawaling got the Tamaraws off to a red hot start as they went up 17-5 right on the first period. With the always tough FEU defense at its finest the Heavy Bombers struggled and failed to reach double digits in the first period, looking up at a 9-24 deficit at the end of One.

JRU however regained some of their bearings in the second period, fighting back behind shock trooper Jester Apinan. Apinan went to the transition attack early, as he used his long-limbed 6-foot-2 frame and quick springs to take it strong to the basket before the FEU defenses could set up. Kenyan Nchotu Njei also got into the act, disrupting the guard play of FEU with his tough defense and freakish athleticism. Njei played the passing lanes and took away the FEU transition attack by getting down quickly on defense and deflecting outlet passes.

JRU head coach Ariel Vanguardia, putting on his usual hyper histrionics, was tossed from the game after getting back to back technical fouls late in the first half. Elder JRU fans seated behind the Heavy Bombers bench were livid and throwing all sorts of vitriol at the game officials; one of them even hurled a water bottle onto the court but was not removed from the venue by the venue security people.

Come the second half the Heavy Bombers went into high gear behind Apinan, Marc Cagoco, Jayson Nocom and JR Sena. JRU's starters had a lackluster first half and now went on a tear to bring the Heavy Bombers within 46-47. Sena got going from his favorite spot on the left box, Nocom picked up some good second-chance opportunities, Cagoco and Apinan slashed right into the gut of the Tamaraws' defense. FEU however responded behind veteran post players Riel Cervantes and Mac Baracael to separate themselves from JRU 54-46. "I told the boys to just settle down and follow our game plan. Kaya nakahabol ang JRU kasi hindi na namin nasunod ang game plan namin ung third quarter," explained FEU head coach Glenn Capacio.

It was still very much a nip and tuck affair in the payoff fourth period as the two teams exchanged baskets and miscues. But Barroca and Benedict Fernandez conspired with Cervantes and Baracael on the high-low plays and the high pick and rolls to put FEU on top 80-71 time down to less than three minutes. Barroca and Fernandez nailed a couple of pressure freethrows to seal the outcome in the end-game.

Barroca led all scorers with 19 points to go with eight rebounds and two steals. Baracael added 10 markers and 10 boards of his own.

Apinan was a surprise scoring leader for JRU with 14 points, while Cagoco and Nocom had 13 markers each.
