Guys naisip ko lang gumawa ng thread tungkol sa mga recruits ng Baste. Since mukang gumanda na ulit ang recruitment ng Baste siguro it's time na rin para gumawa tayo ng ganitong klase ng thread. Let's discuss in this thread all the possible recruits of Baste. Let's discuss all the players that would be a future Stag!* ;) 8)

So sa lahat kindly post any updates tungkol sa recruitment ng Baste! Thanks!* :D

^ I think the most important recruiting question in everyone's mind is: Are Arvie Bringas and Raffy Gusi moving up to the Stags roster for Season 85? Bringas most especially has been the hot blue chip recruiting topic and was reportedly on his way to Loyola Heights to join former Staglet teammates Eric Salamat and Ryan Buenafe. Apparently that is not a done deal and he may wind up staying put in CM Recto. Gusi has been seen watching many non-Baste games after Season 84 ended with a fourth straight NCAA junior division championship for Baste. He's been seen with recruiters / boosters of a couple of UAAP and NCAA schools.

Without a doubt both Bringas and Gusi could serve as the cornerstones of the Stags' future if and when they come in. Bringas is the multi-skilled forward and Gusi the heady and athletic pointguard.

Speaking of Staglets, Almond Vosotros and Yutien Andrada are another big-small pair whom the Stags need to keep in their pen. Vosotros and Andrada may not be as physically imposing as Bringas-Gusi, but these two bring their own unique skill sets. Vosotros plays both guard positions without missing a beat and is a far better scorer than Gusi, possibly the best scorer in the NCAA junior division outside Keith Agovida. He can slash and shoot and will take it into the gut and in the face of any defense. Andrada, a young 6'6" center, is all arms and legs and is easily bounced about in the lane, but is still all of 6'6" and has plenty of room for physical growth and skills development. He grabs seemingly out-of-reach rebounds and blocks a lot of shots thanks to his long arms and big hands.

If the Stags are able to keep these four in CM Recto they will be competitive for the next three to four years, possibly winning another crown or two before these boys are done.

On the developmental front, there is that Jericho De Guzman boy now on the Fr Martin Open lineup of the Stags. He is a gangling 6'9" or so and needs plenty of work the way a 1967 Rambler needs work, but 6'9" is still 6'9". He is joined on the FMC Open lineup by two very athletic Gabby Espinas-type players in the 6'4" range with multiple skills and incredible speed and footwork. The most impressive one wears Number 13 and is an Espinas clone including the relentless pounding off both boards and the explosiveness into the air.i

I think Baste is not that keen to Raffy Gusi kasi parang hindi siya ganung nababanggit sa recruitment ng Baste. But with Arvie I think Baste is really serious on keeping Arvie. But Arvie is still undecided. Arvie asked Baste to give him until April to decide. But Baste gave him until the end of March.

Why is SSC not keen on Raffy Gusi considering that even UAAP powerhouses will surely love to have him in their team? Are the current guards of SSC that good? Also, I think that Raymundo and Maconocido have just 1 or 2 playing years left and surely a PG like Gusi will come in handy.

Ang di pagbigay ng pansin kay Gusi ay malaking pagkakamali.

The kid has good perimeter shooting, can drive and has good basketball IQ. As a Staglet, he commits less mistakes than Eric Salamat did when the latter was still playing for your school. The roles of these two are comparable at the Juniors level, mas matapang nga lang si Salamat, pero more calculating si Gusi. In different situations each will have an advantage. Bottom line, parehong magaling.

Nawala sa inyo si Salamat ng ganon na lang, pati ba naman si Gusi?

03-10-2009, 09:08 PM
Sayang nga si Gusi kasi may potential talaga ang bata. Kaso In my opinion, mas kelangan ng Stags big man. Siguro kung pwede. Team B nalang muna si Gusi, pag alis nalang ni Pamboy tsaka sya iangat. Yun ay kung makakapaghintay sya. :D

Can somebody correct me if I am wrong but isn't Gusi related to the athletic director of Baste? There may not be the overt courtship because the ace in the hole for Baste is the uncle.

Sa kalakaran ng recruitment ngayon, a relative holding a key position will not deter other schools from making offers. Pag nandyan na yang mga alok na yan, tao lang ang mga iyan para di tanggapin ang pinakamagandang alok.

Kung tahimik man ang Baste dahil pinagpaubaya na nila sa matandang Gusi ang pagpapanatili ng bata sa SSC-R, maging tahimik sila sa madla, pero dapat ipakita nila sa bata yung importansya.

i agree the guy has the talent. now that baste is slowly reviving the recruitment prowess i think baste must not only focus on having arvie. imho they must also consider in acquiring former talented staglets like vosotros, gusi, ortuste, andrada & delgado before other teams acquire them. ;)

IMHO kung hindi man masyadong interesado ang Baste kay Raffy Gusi hindi naman ibig sabihin nun na hindi siya binibigyan ng importansya ng Baste. The thing is limited lang ang slots at hindi naman pwedeng lahat e isama sa lineup. Ako rin I believe may talent talaga yung bata pero sa tingin ko kaya hindi siya ganung nababanggit sa recruitment ng Baste e dahil hindi pa talaga kailangan ng Baste ng iba pang PG. Sa ngayon sa tingin ko ok pa naman ang lineup ng Baste sa backcourt positions with Pamboy, Maconocido and Semira. I believe si Pamboy may 2 years pa sya including this year kung hindi ako nagkakamali. And si Maconocido ang alam ko may 3 years pa sya including this year. So fully occupied pa yung backcourt positions in the next 2 years. Kaya siguro sa tingin ko hindi pointguards ang priority ng Baste na irecruit. And another thing ang balita e 4 or 5 players from pampanga ang ilalineup sa season 85. Kaya mahigpit talaga ang labanan ngayon para sa slots ng Stags. Pero malay natin baka kaya tahimik ang pagrecruit sa kanya e dahil pasok na siya sa stags dahil nga sa connection nya sa athletic director ng Baste.

I think every one you listed down is done with high school, as is Marco Cam.

San Sebastian should seriously develop two big kids still with the Staglets: Estrada and Mamaril. These two do not just have height and length but some mass as well. These two could stop growing now and are already physically legit college-size players. To my knowledge Estrada is only 15 while Mamaril only 16, which means physically and in terms of basketball development, both of them have a lot of room for growth and improvement. I am especially intrigued by Estrada. I believe by his fourth year in high school he should be close to what Arvie Bringas was in Season 84, plus he is taller and slightly heftier than Bringas.

I think all of them already used their last year of eligibility to play in the juniors division. But I think one of them, Vosotros is not yet graduating this March. Next year yata siya gagradute.

Yung bumabantay sa kanya, halos kasing laki lang ni Bulawan, pero easy easy lang kung itulak sya, hindi sya makapwesto sa ilalim. Mas ok pa si De Leon.

Sa ngayon team b lang muna si JDG! Di pa niya kaya makipagsabayan sa NCAA. Siguro sa ngayon training lang muna ang kayang ibigay ng Baste sa kanya. Naghire ang Baste ng personal trainer para mabuildup ang katawan niya. Kaya lang tamad daw ang bata. Tamad magwork out. Hopefully if things work out well baka isama sya sa lineup next year. Pero kung hindi, Baste might release him.

IT IS sad to find out that sister school San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Cavite will not be joining the coming NAASCU Season XI. Therefore, is there a possibility that a lot of the Baycats will jump over to the Manila campus?

Last year, point guard Lyle Antipuesto transferred and is already eligible for the coming NCAA season. He was part of the Baycats' back-to-back NAASCU championships in 2008-2009 and 2009-2010.

What happens to this program when Calvin Abueva and Ronald Pascual are done? Those two are rare finds and will be nearly impossible to replace. Perhaps San Sebastian would be best served by looking to Africa for a good big man, someone at least 6'7" and 240 pounds with some skill, even if not necessarily a superstar-type.

Falling behind as much as nine points early in the fourth period, the B Eagles clamped down on defense with Nico Elorde, Miko Sollano, Zach Aquino and Kevin Gamboa then found Fran down low, Adornado at the arc, and Newsome everywhere else in a 17-0 run that turned a 55-62 deficit into a 72-62 bubble. The B Blazers came back behind the three-point shooting of NCAA veterans Jon Argamino and Jun Garcia to come within 72-70 with still 38 seconds left. Head coach Yuri Escueta sued for time, and Newsome split two freethrows with eight second to go for the final count.

Newsome led Glory B with 22 points and six rebounds. Fran added 15 points, all in the second half, plus 10 rebounds. Elorde had 11 points and five assists including a crucial swing pass to Adornado for a breakaway trey.

Glory B will face either UP B or UE B in the Gabby Severino Quarterfinals this weekend, named in honor of the former Glory B coach who was the moving force behind the innovation started only in 2009.

Bart Bartolo led the B Blazers with 18 points and 11 rebounds, while Garcia added 15 points.

UE B for its part edged San Sebastian B 62-58. Falling behind early on, the B Warriors leaned on the three-point shooting of newcomers Nike Montalvo and Jun Pedrito to suddenly pull ahead at 49-39 from a 36-39 deficit. Sam Razon was also brilliant all game long, controlling the boards and the lane.

Razon led UE B with 20 points and 10 rebounds while Montalvo added 14 points.

Former junior division star Raffy Gusi led the B Stags with 11 points while Yser Edora added 10 markers.

The Arellano University Chiefs struck hard in the second quarter to upset the defending champion San Beda Red Lions, 89-60, last Sunday to clinch one of the last two semifinal berths in the 10th Fr. Martin Division 2 Cup basketball tournament.

Giovanni Jalalon banged in a gamehigh 17 points for the Chiefs, who joined the San Sebastian College-A Stags in the semis when action ended at the Arellano University gymnasium in Legarda, Manila.

The Allan Trinidad-coached Stags, led by Jason Pusiquit and Jaymar Perez with 20 and 13 points, put away Informatics, 63-56, in this cagefest which is supported by Gerry’s Grill.

In the junior division, Hope Christian School drew 13 from from John Apacible and blasted the University of Santo Tomas Tiger Cubs, 105-56, while Kim Lee Bayquin shot 19 points for Chiang Kai Shek-A, which turned back the Jose Rizal University Light Bombers, 72-65.

The Stags in the FMC cam easily send 5-6 players to their Team A led by steady big man Guinto, raw but with sky is the langit upside and Wang-bu look-a-like Musomethung DSLU discard Perez, Guinto, the high flying trio of Grilla, Perez and Cortez and the hardly used 6'3+ kid who can also sky.

The downside for Grilla is he lets rough plays get to him. He got ejected at the start of the 3rd canto when, while on the bench, he tried to get to a Bomber who gave his teammate a hard foul earning another gatorade-plastic-bottle-whipping from Cabalen Allan. Aruuu mateku! Lol.

Cortez is a poor man's Dylan Ababou, constantly attacking the lane but can pop the jumper if needed. He also comes with a great attitude. Very Ababou in that aspect and also has some of that boy next door charm, even elliciting some giggles from the JRU crowd.

Guinto is, again, impressive with his understated inside game. He plays in control and plays like a veteran. Reminds me of Coach Lawrence's big man during his stint at the UE bench. Just can't recall his name

Wang-bu2 is very long and uses his length together with his uncanny timing to protect the rim. Still has a long way to go pn offense but, with his defense and wang-buesqe looks, he'll go places :D

Perez is the best pick up for Baste. The DLSU discard is UAAP ready and his game is made for the bright lights of Espaņa. He definitely looks good in gold but with black and white trimmings. He'll even love rhe original than the copystag... Go USTeeeeeeee! USTeeeeeeee!USTeeeeeeee!

From Peter Atencio:

The University of the East Warriors forced the San Sebastian College-A Stags into four big turnovers to pull off a 77-72 overtime win Monday afternoon, and clinch the senior division crown of the 10th Fr. Martin Division 2 Cup.

Six-foot-five American cager Charlies Mammie showed the way with 22 points for the Warriors when action ended at the Trinity University of Asia gymnasium in Quezon City.

Earlier, Hope Christian School drew 20 points from Arjan de la Cruz as they prevailed over Chiang Kai Shek, 68-60, for the junior division title.

Ralph Olivarez, who had 17 points, settled the issue in the last 16.7 seconds for the Warriors, who barged into the finals following a 78-70 beating of the Arellano University Chiefs last Friday.

The 21-year old business management sophomore first scored on a putback off RR de Leon’s miss in the last 16.7 seconds to put the Warriors up by three, 75-72, in the last 16.7 seconds.

Olivarez then cashed in on a traveling error by Gio Vergara with and two charities off Pusiquit’s foul in the last 7.6 seconds to help the Warriors earn the crown with their five-point advantage as time expired.

“Credit goes to the players. They wanted to win the championship,” said team B coach Bai Cristobal, who jointly calls the shots for the squad with Bong Ramos.

Jaymar Perez led the Stags with 24 points, and he put the game into an extra five minutes when he scored off his own miss in the last 17 seconds, 65-all.

The Stags, who made it to the finals with their 73-68 win over the Josen Rizal University, were enjoying a 70-69 edge in the last 3:05.

They lost the momentum when Perez and Vergara gave up the ball twice in succession, Jason Pusiquit missed a shot and Bradwin Guinto fumbled with the ball in the remaining three minutes.

The series of miscues allowed the Warriors to grab the momentum, and move ahead, 73-70, off Cameroonian Mustapha Arafat’s two charities and drive with 51.7 seconds to go.

Guinto tried to keep the Stags in the thick of the fight with his layup in the last 34 seconds, 72-73, but the Warriors found a way to keep their distance 18 seconds later.

The boxscores of the 10th Fr. Martin Division 2 Cup finals:

First Game (juniors)

Hope 68 – de la Cruz 20, Galoso 14, Doliguez 11, Apacible 10, Go 7, Villanueva 4, Guion 4, Rubiano 2.

Chiang Kai Shek 60- Gallego 19, Salim 12, Young 10, Tan 7, Jimenez 5, Larin 4, Bayquin 3.

Quarterscores: 16-11, 37-19, 55-41, 68-60.

Quarterscores: 13-11, 33-21, 49-39, 65-all, 77-72.

^^^ Bradwin Guinto is a bigger and more talented and athletic version of UE's Pari Llagas (and didn't Llagas come from San Sebastian Cavite?). Ateneo had been trying to get Guinto as far back as two or three years ago when the family was all still in Australia, but his father has old ties with Turo Valenzona and even then he indicated he's pick Baste if he did come to the Philippine Islands. Guinto looks like a legit 6-foot-5, maybe 6-foot-6, strongly built with broad shoulders and meaty arms. His footwork looks pretty solid and he shows good touch on the freethrows, crashes the boards hard as well.

Leo De Vera, a Fil-Am who looks like he's in the 6-foot-3 to 6-foot-4 range is probably the second-best athlete among the new recruits. He can dunk as easily as stick the medium jumper, can drive and post up with equal ease, might be the most fundamentally sound among the recruits as well. He is a tisoy version of Ford Arao. He had a put-back slam in traffic against the tough Informatics Icons in the semis.

Jaymar Perez came in by way of Lasalle, supposedly one of Danding Cojuangco's favorite provincial players out of Urdaneta, Pangasinan. This kid is a 6-foot-1 swingman who is relentless driving to the basket, can nail jumpers all the way out to the three-point arc and windmill dunk with two hands, cuts up defenses with his dribble-drive.

Larry Muyang looks like a legit 6-foot-5 and could indeed pass of as our resident UE guy Wangbu. Muyang is a classic lean big guy who gobbles up rebounds, gets a block here and there, and has some nifty post moves on his strong hand. He will need to put on at least another 20 meaningful pounds of muscle though since at his height he looks only 180 pounds soaking wet.

Joshua Grilli might be the odd man out here, a 6-foot-4 Fil-Am forward who hasn't figuerd out if he is a perimeter guy or a post guy. He's a solid enough athlete who can get up in the air but often gets double earfuls from Coach Allan Trinidad for being out of position on offense and defense, and not getting back down fast enough on the transition defense. He should probably stay at least another year on the B Stags to define his game.

Lean 5-foot-9 shooting guard Jason Pusiquit and stocky 5-foot-7 pointguard Gino Vergara will be hard pressed to dislodge any of the current NCAA Stags. Pusiquit has funky shotting mechanics and as of now cannot help his side if he isn't connecting from the outside. Vergara isn't quite getting the plays set for the B Stags, quite an indictment since all Allan Trinidad runs are variations of the motion offense and some pick-roll / screen-roll action.

Yes, Guinto reminds me of the polished version of Llagas with more size. If he takes on Pari's grit and toughness then he's going to be a force to reckon with as long as his eligibility allows. What happened with Guinto and ADMU? As far as 4 years back I heard he has committed to ADMU.

I was actually refering to De Vera and not Cortez. Second best athlete by with the best attitude. I'd take him over anybody else in this B team. He hardly complains, listens to his coaches, doesn't hesitate to ask questions, relates well with game officials, and jost goes hard each and every time he's on the court. And he's the best cheer leader on the bench. After a bone-headed move, Coach Allan was ready to chew his head off when he immediately aplogized and showed coach what should have done. Parang na shave bigla ang balbas ng cabalen at naging maamo :D.

The game comes to Perez easily. If he has his game on, basketball looks so easy, including acrobatics. Lakay Jaymar, call me maybe :D.

Grilli needs to get his head screwed in the right places. If setting plays were outlawed, this kid will be the next star. But plays and Grilli just can't be mentioned in the same sentence. Perhaps a year in Espana will help him better in defining his game.

Apparently Larry Muyang, the tall kid wearing Number 14 with hsi hand on Turo Valenzona's shoulder, is now with Lyceum. He is a big loss for the Stags.

Lyceum, Benilde in Upset Wins at FMC Div II

27 July 2013

St Placid Gym, San Beda, Manila - The Lyceum Philippines University B Pirates and College of St. Benilde B Blazers came up off with upset wins in the 11th Fr. Martin Division 2 Cup basketball tournament.

The Pirates, bannered by 6’7" Cameroonian Victor Ngudjol’s heroics in the dying seconds, waylaid the Ateneo B Eagles, 83-79, to post their second straight win in Group A at the St. Placid gymnasium of the San Beda College-Mendiola campus in Mendiola.

The Blazers, led by Earvin Flores with 29 points, stopped last year’s finalist San Sebastian Stags, 73-71, to catch up with the Pirates.

Allyn Malabanan led the Pirates with 12 points, while Ngudjol delivered 10 points apiece with Jasper Ayaay and Rhoel Maconocido.

Ngudjol came into the picture with the less than 30 seconds left, and scored a layup which shattered a 77-all deadlock. Lyceum was down as much as 70-61 early in the payoff fourth period after going up 53-61 to start the final period.

The Pirates then relied on the split free throws of Malabanan and former San Sebastian aspirant Larry Muyang in the ensuing play to ensure the win.

The Blue Eagles, behind Joma Adornado and Jerie Pingoy with 15 and 11 points, played without one of their two big men, 6’6" Nigerian Chebweezee Ikeh, who was sent out in the third period for goal-tending.

It was a bad day from the referees for the B Eagles. Pingoy was tossed in the third period after incurring two upsortsmanlike fouls. Ateneo's other Nigerian, 6'8" mastodon Sega Ewenike got a monstrous two-handed follow-up dunk but was assessed a technical foul for hanging too long onto the ring.

Bereft of their two big Nigerian imports, the Pirates were able to catch up with the Blue Eagles. Ngudjol, Malabanan, Ayaay and former UE and San Beda aspirant Kinsman Frando all pitched in for the fiery Lyceum windup.

Carlo Young, who had 11 points, scored on a split charity with 1.1 seconds left to carry the Blazers past the Stags.

The win was a follow up of the Blazers’ earlier 83-72 beating of the Arellano University Chiefs.

Melvin Rodriguez scored the winning layup in the last 8.9 seconds to lift the Altas to a 69-68 beating of the San Beda Red Lions.

Mbala shot 17 points, while Alexander Torres, John Boo and Abu Tratter hit 16, 14 and 10 points respectively for the Green Archers, who went on to post their third straight win in in Group B of the senior division.

This put the Green Archers in strong contention for the semifinals, according to commissioner Robert de la Rosa.

The Green Archers turned the tables on the Green Archers, and were ahead at halftime, 25-15, and after trailing, 7-13, in the first quarter.

Rodriguez’s heroics allowed the Altas to have an impressive start in their Group B campaign.
