Only one summer basketball tournament plays every day in true hardcore fashion and that's the Nike Summer League.

A senior and junior division featuring over 20 schools and 25 teams will be on tap for the 2009 edition.

Ateneo De Manila and San Sebastian Recoletos won the senior and junior divisions last year and are looking to make it back-to-back title reigns this year. The Blue Eagles were saved by Chris Tiu's last-second shot to nip the UE Red Warriors while the Golden Staglets ran all over Lasalle Greenhills behind Arvie Bringas and Raffy Gusi.

Keep it logged on to www.gameface.ph for all the latest news, developments and updates.

Here's a little something from our archives...

Ateneo De Manila leaned on the end-game heroics of team captain Chris Tiu to nip the UE Red Warriors 65-64, bagging the Nike Summer League 2008 title.

UE played near-perfect basketball for over 39 minutes. In the last 34 seconds of play though they suddenly forgot how to fight through staggered screens as Tiu came off two screens then nailed a picture-perfect jumpshot from the top of the key, the ball ripping through the nylons with still 26 seconds left.

In the ensuing play the Warriors had two chances to pull out the victory but just could not buy a basket: Paul Lee had a shot back-rim and Hans Thiele bungled a point-blank shot. UE still had the ball with just 2 seconds remaining but the ball just wouldn't go in for the Warriors. Tiu rebounded the last UE miss as time expired to complete his save of Ateneo. "That was really the play. Even if he doesn't make all his shots you can't leave him open with the game on the line," said coach Norman Black of Tiu's game-saving shot.

Eric Salamat was declared the MVP after the game. Joining him in the Mythical 5 were UE's Pari Llagas, Lasalle forwards Rico Maeirhofer and PJ Barua, and FEU pointguard Mark "Babyface" Barroca. In the opening game FEU bagged third place after beating the undermanned Green Archers.

The Adamson Lady Falcons took home the title in the women’s division after beating the Lady Tamaraws of FEU, while Arvie Bringas led his San Sebastian Staglets over Lasalle Greenhills to bag the junior division crown.

Last summer the UE Red Warriors played two title games in two days and nearly became a double summer champion. Maybe this year will finally be their year.

^^^ Agree. With a solid veteran core, and a couple of talented newcomers, and maybe two returnees, Far Eastern should make the most noise in the Nike.

Dapat pahiyang na ang UE from these pre-season events. If they have to participate, do so just to keep in shape and not necessarily win.

Ilang taon, dekada na nga yata, laging sinasagasaan ng UE ang mga kalaban sa summer leagues, pero pagdating ng Sep o Oct, ayun luhaan lagi.

Bukod tanging sila ang consistently competitive sa tag-init na laging talunan pag papalapit na ang tag-lamig!

Pamahiin o feng shui, bahala sila... pero kung ako ang tatanungin, mas gugustuhin kong huwag makita sa itaas ng leader board ang UE ngayong summer. ;)

Mas OK din para surprise pag sila nagchampion sa UAAP. I think FEU have the greatest chance of winning the NSL. Saka, sa kanila ata ang homecourt ;D

^^^ Tournament organizers are looking either at April 17 or 18 for opening day, over at the Far Eastern Gym in R Papa in Manila.

Just to add to the FEU-UE buzz: while that is indeed the FEU homecourt, it is not within the main FEU campus and it is right outside the Lepanto gate of UE, heh-he-he! So I guess the FEU-UE game should be a doozy.

FEU will have Aldrech Ramos, Reil Cervantes, JR Cawaling, Paul Sanga, Andy Barroca and Jenz Knuttel as their veteran core. They will definitely have Pipo Nuondoo, Glenn Eguiloz and RR Garcia as well-practiced newcomers. They might have Sonny Abaring and Jun Vinluan back. They might also include that other pointguard who came from MMC, Manalo I think is his surname. All of these guys have been practicing together everyday for the last year and a half to two years, and they are on the FMC Open lineup of FEU that went undefeated and are now in the Finals.

On the other hand there is UE, who to my knowledge, still does not have any recruit of stature, but who will instead rely on holdovers and kids who have been on their sidelines for the last year or two. James Martinez, Paul Lee and Pari Llagas are the only sure holdovers at the moment, although the likes of Hans Thiele, Elmer Espiritu, Rudy Linganay, Paul Zamar, Raffy Reyes, Toto Bandaying and Lucas Tagarda might all still make the Nike lineup.

On paper at least, no way can UE beat FEU man for man. And with Coach Glen Capacio, no way newbie coach Lawrence Chongson can pull a rabbit out of any hat.

Go FEU haha :D seems that FEU is really the team to beat this year in all leagues. Their veteran core are all good and their rookies and key returnees are all experienced i think they just have to balance their offense and and defense :)

Anyway, do post the schedule when the tournament will start so that i can watch live! really want to watch the games :) Thanks :)

But being defending NCAA-South champions, kaya yan. :D

Sa juniors naman, nasa groups B and D ang magagandang laban.

Hmmm... at wala din ang De La Salle-Dasma dito. Mukhang bakasyon grande sila.

Reigning titlist Ateneo De Manila got off to a rousing start in their NSL campaign besting hard-fighting Emilio Aguinaldo College 71 - 64 in the first game of the NSL 2009.

A pair of Eric Salamat freethrows gave the Blue Eagles a 61-51 cushion with under four minutes left in the game as Ateneo looked set to cruise to the win.

But the Generals came within three points 62-59 as star swingman Ferdinand Aquino nailed eight straight points with a little over two minutes left.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini nailed a jumper from the left elbow then Jai Reyes iced the final count with a couple of end game freethrows himself.

Al-Hussaini had 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Blue Eagles while Aquino had 22 for the Generals. Salamat added 16 while Cameroonian Romeo Foutue chipped in 13 for EAC.

Keifer Ravena, Cedric Labingisa and Jeron Teng turned it up in the closing minutes as the RP 16-and under team survived a late game surge by Lasalle Zobel to prevail 77 - 72.

Zobel, featuring a taller lineup than the Nationals, were keeping themselves ahead for most of the first half, the last time at 29-23 late in the second period behind veterans Luigi Dela Paz, Gwayne Capacio and 6'7" newcomer Arnold Van Opstal.

Ravena and Teng then conspired with Kevin Ferrer, Paolo Romero and Von Pessumal in a 12-0 run to end the first half, as the Nationals seized a 41-33 lead going into the lemon time break.

In the third period it was practically an all-RP show as the lead went as high as 59-43 late in the quarter. Romero used superior pivots in the lane to score against the taller Zobel frontline. Ravena cut up the Zobel defense with his dribble-penetration and patented double-clutch layups. Teng waxed hot from trey range. And the RP Boys tightened up with their own full court press and halfcourt trap on the defensive end to generate turnovers and frustrate the Zobel guards.

Just when the Nationals looked headed for an easy cruise to victory, Capacio took charge himself and went on a fourth period tear, scoring eight straight points to cut down the lead to 67-63 with still four minutes and change to go.

Ravena however would not let the RP Boys falter as he made four straight freethrows and once again scrambled the Zobel offense with his quick darting hands, disrupting the passing lanes and taking the ball away handily from Nico Elorde and Dela Paz.

Capacio responded with another cluster of four points on strong drives along the baseline, and the Ravena-Capacio duel was coming to a climax. Zobel was now within 75-72.

In the end though it would be the freethrows of Teng that sealed the win as Zobel ran out of timeouts to set up plays in their last two possessions.

Capacio led all scorers with 21 points to go with 14 rebounds and two blocks. Dela Paz added 16 on 3-4 shooting from trey range.

Ravena led the Nationals with 15 points and five steals, Teng added 13 with three treys, while Romero had 10 points and nine rebounds.

Zobel is known as a speed team with great perimeter shooting, but in this game the RP Boys beat them at their own game. "We really lack size, so we make up for it with speed on transition and outside shooting," explained RP head coach Eric Altamirano.

Their participation in this tournament is meant as a tuneup for the coming months. "We wanted to get a taste of top-level competition, that is why we joined the NSL," said Altamirano. "We have the FIBA-Asia Youth tournament in November this year, and we might go to China in June. I'm trying to get as much training as possible now because the boys go back to their school teams in June and July," he added.

Pirates submerge De La Salle; Red Cubs remain undefeated
by JP Abcede
nikebasketball.com.ph/nsl2009/news.php


In a time when upsets are the order of the day in the major leagues, Lyceum of the Philippines University-Manila pulled off the same feat against De La Salle University, 74-73, on May 22 in the 2009 Nike Summer League at the Far Eastern University Gym.

Joseph Abaya scored the game-winning basket with 17 seconds to go for the Pirates. De La Salle still had a chance to win it but James Mangahas’ attempt missed its mark.

This outcome complicates the playoff picture in seniors Group C. In the event that the Intramuros-based squad wins its final assignment and the green and white crew drop theirs, there would be a triple tie in second among the two teams and idle Mapua Institute of Technology.

Lyceum-Manila owns a 2-2 standing with its last game of the eliminations against Universidad de Manila on May 25 at 9am.

The Green Archers, on the other hand, would go up against FEU also on Monday at 10:30am. This is DLSU’s first defeat in the tournament this season.

To review the three teams’ head-to-head matchups, the Cardinals won against LPU-M, 61-51, on April 29 and the Archers were victorious against Mapua, 72-53, just two days ago.

Everything would be moot though if the Taft-based team takes care of the Tamaraws. Just the same, there would be a playoff for the first seed in their group on May 26.

Abaya topscored for the Pirates with 17 points and three assists. Jerard Ong and Rich Guevarra combined for 27 markers as Chris Aqualiful had a double-double with 11 and ten rebounds.

Peejay Barua led the losing squad with 23 points and five rebounds. James Mangahas hit 12 and Bader Malabes pumped 11 markers and four boards.

Meanwhile, San Beda College-Rizal won its fourth straight game by chipping on Malayan High School of Science, 89-50.

Arthur dela Cruz stood on the sholders of giants with 16 points and 14 rebounds. Dave Moralde wrote in 15 markers with Yvan Ludovice scoring 11.

Ace Basas led the flock with 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Finally, Hope Christian High School won via default against Jose Abad Santos Memorial School.

When you click on PLAYERS menu on the homepage, it doesn't give results but when you click on the SCORES AND SCHEDULE menu (still on the homepage) and then on the name of the SCHOOL, it will direct you to the TEAM ROSTER and TEAM STATS. Finally, clicking on the name of the PLAYER on the roster will give you the individual player's stats.

But it's not really that accurate. For example, on the May 22 game of SBC Juniors, clicking on SBC will give the roster of the SBC Seniors. I have to look for past SBC Juniors game to see the correct SBC Juniors roster and stat.

Tams edge La Salle in Summer League
05/25/2009 | 02:10 PM


MANILA, Philippines – Ryan Roose Garcia hit the game-winner as Far Eastern edged La Salle, 66-65, on Monday in the Nike Summer League at the FEU gym.

Recovering the ball from a scramble, Garcia scored the marginal basket with four ticks left then the Tams foiled the inbounds of the Archers on the other end to seal the win.

FEU thus completed a sweep of Seniors-C and advanced into the quarterfinals against Perpetual Help on June 4.

Reil Cervantes showed the way for the Tams with 12 points and five rebounds while JR Cawaling added 11 points and Mark Barroca had 10 points, six rebounds, and six assists.

Bader Malabes spearheaded the Archers with 19 points as Peejay Barua pumped in 13 points and Kish Co posted a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.

In the other game, Lyceum-Manila routed Universidad de Manila, 81-64, to force a triple tie with DLSU and Mapua. –GMANews.TV

Rookie hits game-winner to lead FEU past La Salle
by Jonas Terrado
Nike Summer League website
May 25, 2009


Rookie Ryan Garcia delivered late to help Far Eastern University complete a five-game sweep after a thrilling 67-66 win over De La Salle in the 2009 Nike Summer League seniors' division at the FEU gym last May 25.

After both teams battled for the rebound, Garcia finally got the hold of the ball before sinking a follow-up teardrop with 4.3 seconds left to give the Tamaraws a one-point lead.

La Salle had a last ditch attempt to steal the game away from the host squad but failed to convert a shot on the next play as the buzzer sounded.

The victory earned FEU, the top team in Group C, a date with University of Perpetual Help in the quarterfinals set next month. The Altas earned a spot in the final eight after finishing second in Group B.

On the other hand, the Green Archers, who ended the elimination round with a 3-2 record are forced to play Lyceum of the Philippines in a one-game knockout for the remaining quarters spot next week. The winner of that game will face San Beda in the quarters.

The Pirates forced a rubber match after beating City Colleges of Manila, 81-64, as Joseph Abaya had 13 points while three others registered 12 points apiece in the rout.

Lyceum was the same team that stunned La Salle, 74-73, last Friday for the latter's first defeat of the tournament.

The winning basket with Garcia's eighth-point of the game while hauling down four rebounds in the contest. Big man Reil Cervantes led the way for the Tams with 12 points and five rebounds as he was responsible in bringing his team back from a seven-point deficit.

RP team mainstay JR Cawaling had 11 points and four boards while fellow national squad member Mark Barroca, who is coming off a spectacular 30-point effort in the Philippine Basketball League, delivered 10 points, six rebounds and six assists.

It was a strong effort for both players, who along with teammate Aldrech Ramos, will depart for Japan in the evening to play alongside the nationals in an invitational tournament.

Before Garcia's shot, Bader Malabes gave La Salle a 66-65 lead when he drove past Barroca for a basket with 18 seconds remaining after trailing by four points a minute earlier.

The Green Archers held a 51-44 advantage with over a minute gone by in the final canto on a basket by Malabes but three-point play by Ramos with 5:34 to go give the Tamaraws a 57-55 lead after completing a 13-4 blast.

FEU held a 65-61 advantage with 1:34 left to play before La Salle's Hyram Bagatsing sank a triple to cut the deficit to one with 58 ticks to go.

Malabes led La Salle with 18 points, Peejay Barua added 13 points and three rebounds while big man Kish Co, who fought toe-to-toe with the FEU frontline, registered a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Meanwhile, National University won via a forfeit over University of Santo Tomas after the latter failed to show up for their scheduled game during lunch time. The win ended the Bulldogs' campaign at 2-3 while the Growling Tigers finished with a dismal 1-4 card.

Could anyone tell why UST did not appear on the NU game?
By the way, Arvie Bringas was absent during the DLSU/FEU game. I think he is fixing his papers in SSC.

FEU, three NCAA powers complete Nike Final Four cast
by Mia Domingo
inboundpass.com

THE FINAL Four of the 2009 Nike Summer League is locked, loaded and ready to go.

Far Eastern University warded off the University of Perpetual Altas with a convincing 89-51 triumph in the first of four quarterfinal matchups at the FEU Gym last June 8. Bannered by the Philippine Developmental team trio of Mark Barroca, Aldrech Ramos and JR Cawaling, the Tamaraws were on cruise control from the get-go and converted from almost all corners of the hardwood.

Barroca led the way for the tourney hosts with 16 points, six rebounds and six assists, while Ramos and Reil Cervantes combined for 23 points. Raffy Ynion was the lone bright spot for the losing Altas, tallying 15 points.

In the second game, San Sebastian College-Recoletos survived a late Jose Rizal University surge, 77-75. The biggest lead of the game for the Recto-based squad stood at 13, 61-48 at the end of the third period, but a four-minute scoring drought coupled with a JRU surge trimmed the lead to just two, 76-74 with 15 ticks left in regulation. Jimbo Aquino then split his charities to up the Stag lead to three with 10 seconds remaining. In the ensuing possession, JRU gunner John Wilson was fouled from behind the three-point line in the act of shooting with three seconds left, giving the Shaw unit a chance to send the game to overtime. However, he muffed two of his three free throws, costing coach Ariel Vanguardia’s wards a seat in the semis.

Aquino led the Stags with 13 points while Gilbert Bulawan added 12. Wilson paced Jose Rizal with 22 markers.

Later in the day, San Beda College and Lyceum of the Philippines University-Manila finished out their game, which was stopped after the first half of action last Thursday, June 4, because of a slippery playing court. After a close opening 20 minutes that saw the Red Lions lead only by two, the NCAA champs stepped on the throttle in the third quarter to pull away, 60-46 with 10 minutes left to play and never looked back en route to an 86-70 win. Bam Gamalinda led the Red and White squad with 14 points and four rebounds with Chico Tirona and Garvo Lanete adding 11 apiece. Joseph Abaya had 13 points for the Pirates.

Letran completed the semifinal cast with a 55-46 win over Adamson University in the nightcap. The Falcons led early on but squandered the lead for good at the start of the fourth quarter after rookie Roider Cabrera sent center John Foronda to the charity stripe. Foronda duly obliged, sinking both freebies as the Intramuros outfit never looked back, even leading by as many as eight with 43 ticks left after a Reymar Gutilban jumper.

Rey Guevarra led the Knights with 14 points and six boards while Jam Cortes added a double-double performance of 10 points and 14 boards. Junard Yambot, on the other hand, led the Falcons with nine points. No Falcon scored in double figures but had a balance in scoring.

The semis begin this Thursday, June 11, at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City. The curtain-raiser at 2:30 p.m. pits the Stags and Knights in an all-NCAA showdown. At 4 p.m., the Red Lions will lock horns with the Tamaraws.

Letran wins summer league juniors crown
06/10/2009 | 04:52 PM


MANILA, Philippines – Letran needed late-game stops in pulling off a 79-76 win over University of Santo Tomas to claim the 2009 Nike Summer League juniors crown Wednesday at the Far Eastern University Gym.

The Squires led by as many as 16, 39-23, midway in the second period but needed the breaks of the game to complete the win.

JR Ongteco scored from an Archie Iñigo drop pass gave Letran a 78-71 breathing room that they protected until the final buzzer.

“I am happy for my players. They deserve to win," said coach Elmer Latonio. “I hope that they gained some experience in time for the NCAA tournament."

This is Letran’s second postseason crown after winning the Filipino-Chinese Basketball League against De La Salle-Zobel last month.

Jarelan Tampus, who was named the NSL most valuable player, paced the Squires with 25 points and five rebounds while fellow mythical team member Glenn Khobuntin added 19 points and seven rebounds.

Ongteco tallied in 16 points and seven rebounds while Iñigo scored 10 points and had three assists.

Molline Gonzales led UST with 21 points while Kyle Neypes helped out with 17 points, six rebounds and three assists. Jazreel Jimenez scored 16 points.

Other mythical team members are Gonzales, Neypes and Louie Vigil of the Jose Rizal University Light Bombers.

JRU won third place after an 88-85 overtime win over La Salle-Zobel with Vigil leading the Light Bombers’ scoring with 29 points.

Richard Lontoc fired seven three-pointers to finish with 25 points while also grabbing seven rebounds. Joshua Saret scored 16 points to go with his seven rebounds and three assists.

Luigi dela Paz paced the Junior Archers with 29 points while Arnold Van Opstal missed a double-double with 20 points and nine rebounds. Anton Sevilla fired 11 points.

The seniors’ semifinals will be played Thursday at the Ynares Sports Center with Letran facing San Sebastian at 2:30 p.m. to be followed by the FEU-San Beda-Manila 4:00 p.m. match – GMANews.TV

With all due respect, brother Joe,

I watched the game this afternoon.
I believe FEU played with a complete lineup,
including those from the Smart-Gilas team.

Actually, sila ang gumagawa, quarterbacked by Barroca,
kaya lamang ang FEU most of the way. Double digits pa.

Persistence and playing with "heart", saved the day for the Red Lions.
It was a come from behind win.

Just to correct mis-impressions. Thanks.

I am concerned with players getting sick either of AH1N1 or dengue or ordinary flu this coming UAAP and NCAA. Several Adamson players were down with the flu in their quarters both in the Nike and Filoil while several Ateneo Team B players in the FMC did not play because they were also sick.

Stags, Red Lions set up all-NCAA Nike title tussle
by Mia Domingo
inboundpass.com



San Sebastian College-Recoletos and San Beda College set up an all-NCAA title game thanks to contrasting semifinal wins in the 2009 Nike Summer League at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City last June 11.

After watching the Letran Knights breeze through the opening 10 minutes of action, the Stags turned the corner to book a finals ticket, 92-79. Coach Ato Agustin’s wards exploited a three-minute Letran scoring drought with an 8-0 second quarter blitz to pull away from the Muralla unit. They extended their lead to as high as 15 in the three-minute mark of the third period after two Dave Najorda charities. The quintet from Recto was on cruise control thereafter as the Knights failed to execute their offense and ignite any kind of rally.

Veteran swingman Jimbo Aquino paced San Sebastian with 20 points, with Najorda tallying 17 and second-year guard Raymond Maconocido registering 15. Guard RJ Jazul, meanwhile, led carried the Knights’ cause with 21 points.

In the other semis tussle, San Beda managed to hold off UAAP powerhouse Far Eastern University, 74-72, in a tightly-contested matchup. FEU dominated the opening minutes of the game, leading by as many as 13 in the first quarter. However, the Red Lions slowly got back into the game led thanks to guard JR Tecson and American Sudan Daniel. A triple by Tecson at the end of the third period finally handed the Mendiola unit the lead, 57-56.

At the start of the fourth quarter, the Tamaraws were able to tie the count at 59 and even led by six with 6:11 remaining in the game after a basket by Pipo Noundou. The Lions took the lead back, 71-69, after a Garvo Lanete conversion at the 1:40 mark. A series of muffed FEU possessions forced Mark Barroca to foul Tecson in the dying seconds of the game. The guard calmly sank both charities to extend the San Beda lead to four, 73-69.

Tamaraws forward JR Cawaling hit a crucial trey to trim the deficit to one, 73-72, with 9.9 second in the game clock. Teammate RR Garcia then sent Chico Tirona to the 4.5-meter line where the San Beda playmaker made one out of two freebies. In the ensuing possession, FEU big man Reil Cervantes committed a traveling violation, effectively sealing his squad’s fate.

Tecson led the Red Lions with 25 points while Daniel added 19 points and six boards. Cawaling had 25 markers for the Tams.

The title game of the 2009 NSL is set on Saturday, June 13, at 4 p.m. at the Ynares Sports Arena. Preceding the finals is the battle for third at 2:30 p.m.

The scores:

First game:

Letran wins summer league juniors crown
06/10/2009 | 04:52 PM


MANILA, Philippines – Letran needed late-game stops in pulling off a 79-76 win over University of Santo Tomas to claim the 2009 Nike Summer League juniors crown Wednesday at the Far Eastern University Gym.

The Squires led by as many as 16, 39-23, midway in the second period but needed the breaks of the game to complete the win.

JR Ongteco scored from an Archie Iñigo drop pass gave Letran a 78-71 breathing room that they protected until the final buzzer.
The Squires just had answers to every Tigercub salvo. They've got a good offensive system that really finds the open man either at the wing or at the post. Tampus was great all game long (actually I only saw the game at the tail end of the 2nd period) while the tall guys Khobuntin and Ongteco supported him well. Tampus is really a great offensive player because he can score on the ball or off the ball. I wonder how would they have done if Romeo did not transfer to FEU. That would have been a killer of a backcourt/wings.

The Tigercubs just came short as Storm Rive missed a potential game-tying 3 near the buzzer. The boys were tired after playing in the FMC quarterfinals the day before in the FMC which the Squires defaulted. If it's any consolation, the Tigercubs missed two starters, Ferrer and Labingisa, who were with the U16 team.

The league was sort of a coming ouit party for Molline Gonzales who never got his game going until the NSL. He was limited to playing the main defender against the opponents best wing men. This season he really matured and has learned to mix up his game. Previously all he does is jack up 3s. This season he has shown the ability to take it to the hoop and take the shot himself or issue a drop pass.

Red Lions roar to NSL title
Written by jonas_terrado

It seems that San Beda is ready to win its fourth consecutive NCAA title after routing San Sebastian College, 85-69, and captured the 2009 Nike Summer League crown at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The Red Lions led for most of the game as they put on a strong finishing kick to become the first NCAA team to win a title in the league's four-year run.

University of the East, De La Salle and Ateneo de Manila, all coming from the UAAP, were the three previous winners of the annual tournament with the Green Archers and the Blue Eagles eventually bagging the championship in their league.

Following the victory, San Beda hopes to repeat such feat when the NCAA begins its 85th season on June 27.

"This win is a great momentum-builder for us heading into our campaign," said San Beda head coach Frankie Lim. "I think overall, were pretty much in NCAA shape."

American recruit Sudan Daniel, tagged to fill up the void left by Sam Ekwe, was impressive against the San Sebastian frontline with 12 points and eight rebounds and was later adjudged as the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

Daniel was also included in the league's Mythical Five alongside teammate JR Tecson, San Sebastian's Jimbo Aquino, Far Eastern University's Ryan Roose Garcia and Letran's Reymar Gutilban.

He was one of five players who scored in double figures with Bam Gamalinda and Garvo Lanete sharing top-scoring honors with 16 points apiece while Jessmar Villahermosa tallied 12.

The Red Lions by 12 points early in the second half but the Stags, shorthanded with the absence of head coach Ato Agustin and rookie big man Ian Sangalang, among others, charged back as Jonathan Semira hit a triple at the buzzer to end the third quarter behind by just two points, 65-63.

However, Lanete, Villahermosa and Daniel conspired by scoring eight straight points at the start of the payoff period for a 73-63 lead for the Red Lions before pulling away in the end.

Aquino, who has made several double-digits scoring efforts in the preseason tournaments, led the Recto-based dribblers with 18 points. Gilbert Bulawan had nine points, rookie Calvin Abueva tallied eight markers while Raymond Maconocido scored seven.

San Sebastian still has one more opportunity to get back at San Beda when they meet on Monday for the consolation prize of third place in the Filoil Flying V Preseason MVP Cup.

Earlier, FEU salvaged third place after beating Letran, 70-69.

It was a rough and tumble game but in the end San Beda hung tough for the pull-away 85 - 69 victory to claim the 2009 Nike Summer League championship over San Sebastian.

In a game that saw a couple of warnings, technical fouls and unsportsmanlike fouls whistled as early as the second period, the Red Lions showed true grit and would not be drawn into a fracas.

Veteran guards Ray Maconocido and Pamboy Raymundo were the prime culprits as they snuck in cheap shots of all manner against San Beda newcomer Jessmar Villahermosa. Maconocido snapped a couple of rabbit punches into Villahermosa's midsection, even as Raymundo deliberately tripped him in an ensuing play. Villahermosa however kept his cool and even baited the two Stags to keep up with the cheap shots even in front of the referees. Both were slapped with technical fouls and later on unsportsmanlike fouls and simply never got into the game.

In the third period, when San Beda was pulling away at 53-41, Gilbert Bulawan tried the same roughhouse tactics against American import Sudan Daniels. Taunting Daniels after he made a basket, Bulawan was warned by referee Boyong Manalac. Daniels later on scored got his own licks in as he nailed Bulawan when he secured a defensive board for the Red Lions. Bulawan had to be pulled out after he crumpled to the floor under the east basket.

Had the Stags just stuck to their usual play, they might have made this a little more interesting. Apparently they tried to foolishly make up for the absence of 6'6" top recruit Ian Sangalang and head coach Ato Agustin with dirty play, a ploy that obviously backfired. Sangalang and Agustin are reportedly in sick bay.

By the last three minutes, head coach Frankie Lim's boys had started to pull away from 71-63, as JR Tecson, Daniels, Garvo Lanete and Bam Gamalinda went in for the kill baskets.

"This gives us good momentum going into the NCAA," said Lim after the game. "I'm proud of the boys for doing a good job and maintaining their composure," he added.

Daniels was named MVP of the tournament. "This is just so special not just for me but for the team. Hopefully we can bring this all the way to the NCAA," he said.
