Tamaraws duel Stags
April 30, 2009, 10:05pm

Games Friday (Filoil Flying V Arena)
3:45 p.m. -- SSC-R vs. FEU

Hardly tested in their debut game against the University of the Philippines Maroons, whom they demolished, 73-65, last Wednesday, the Far Eastern University Tamaraws face a more dangerous rival in San Sebastian College Stags as they gun for a second straight win in the 2009 Filoil Flying V Pre-Season MVP Cup at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

At 3:45 p.m. Friday, the Tams meet a Stags squad still giddy from scoring a huge 81-76 upset win over last year’s runner-up San Beda Red Lions late Wednesday. It was the Stags’ second win in a row and the victory should give them the confidence against the undermanned but still explosive dribblers from Morayta.

Ateneo, nursing a 2-1 card, takes on University of Perpetual Help (1-0) in the 12 p.m. schedule, while defending champion University of the East tackles the National University Bulldogs at 5:30 p.m. to complete another 3-game bill in the tournament.

The Eagles are actually coming off a close 77-76 win over the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers last week, and will face an Altas team brimming with confidence after scoring a mild 76-72 upset over the Letran Knights.

SAN SEBASTIAN grabbed the Group A lead as the Stags upset the Far Eastern U Tamaraws, 79-72, yesterday in the FilOil Flying V Pre-Season MVP Cup at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Ronald Pascual unloaded nine of his 21 points in the final period to help lift the unbeaten Stags to their straight victory.

“We played a very good help defense in the fourth quarter,” said new Stags coach Ato Agustin.

Jimbo Aquino knocked in a game-high 22 points for the Stags, who outscored the Tamaraws, 18-8, in the last eight minutes.

The scores:

SAN SEBASTIAN 79—Aquino 22, Pascual 21, Abueva 10, Bulawan 8, Raymundo 8, Semira 6, Bringas 2, Najorda 2, Gatchalian 0.

FEU 72—Garcia 21, Noundou 16, Cervates 12, Eguilos 7, Vinluan 6, Sanga 5, Tanuan 5, Exciminiano 0, Knuttel 0

Blue Eagles inch past FEU, capture fourth straight
by Mia Domingo

IN A potential UAAP Season 72 Finals preview, Ateneo de Manila outlasted the depleted Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 74-72 in the 2009 Filoil Flying V MVP Cup at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City last May 2.

Scoring outbursts characterized this titanic clash. The Blue Eagles lost an early first quarter advantage after FEU launched an 11-0 tirade at the start of the second quarter to tie the count at 25. Both squads traded baskets as the score remained tied after the first half. In the third quarter, the Blue and White unleashed its own 12-0 blast before the Tamaraws cut the deficit to seven with the final 10 minutes left to play.

In the payoff period, FEU rookie guard Ryan Roose Garcia was thrown out of the game with under two miuntes left after being charged a second technical foul. Ateneo playmaker Jai Reyes then sank the technical freebies, extending his team’s lead to eight, 74-66. Cameroonian swingman Pipo Noundou buried a trifecta that trimmed the Blue Eagle lead to two, 74-72. However, that scoreline stood until the final buzzer after the Morayta outfit failed to commit a foul on Ateneo, draining the clock in the process.

Eric Salamat led Ateneo with 15 points, while Cebuano hotshot Oping Sumalinog registered a career-high 13 for the Katipunan cagers, who won their fourth straight assignment. Noundou led the Tamaraws, who played sans RP Development Team members Mark Barroca, JR Cawaling and Aldrech Ramos, with 15.

Ateneo’s win-loss record now stands at 4-1, while FEU is at 1-2.

The scores:

Ateneo 74 – Salamat 15, Sumalinog 13, Baclao 12, Al-Hussaini 10, Reyes 8, Long 5, Salva 4, Gonzaga 4, Chua 2, Baldos 1, Austria 0, Golla 0, Tiongson 0.

FEU 72 – Noundou 15, Garcia 14, Cervantes 10, Tanuan 9, Sanga 8, Eguilos 8, Exciminiano 4, Knuttel 3, Romero 1, Vinluan 0.

MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern U made one big run in the last three minutes as it subdued Mapua, 71-66, to notch its third win in five games in the Filoil-Flying V Pre-Season MVP Cup at the San Juan Arena in San Juan yesterday.

Reil Cervantes scored 13 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter, including nine points in that decisive attack, that shattered the 58-all count in the last 3:49 en route to the victory.

“Reil (Cervantes) stepped up for us, and we are lucky to win,” said FEU coach Glenn Capacio, whose Tams moved up behind unbeaten La Salle (3-0) in Group B.

The Cardinals took their third loss against two wins as they slid to fifth place in Group A paced by Univ. of the East’s 4-0 card.

DLSU breaks losing slump; UE, San Beda win last Filoil games
by Mia Domingo

IN THE final elimination round playdate of the 2009 Filoil Flying V MVP Cup, University of the East, De La Salle University and San Beda College came up with stirring and memorable performances.

UE took advantage of a depleted Far Eastern University quintet en route to a 63-56 victory in the first of three games at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City last June 5. James Martinez led the Red Warrior assault with 16 points while Elmer Espiritu and Paul Lee each contributed 10. The Red Warriors dominated proceedings from the get-go, leading by as many as 15 in the second quarter.

Reil Cervantes led the Tamaraws, who played sans Philippine Developmental Team mainstays Mark Barroca, JR Cawaling and Aldrech Ramos, with 18 points.

The scores:

First game:

UE 63 – Martinez 16, Espiritu 10, Lee 10, Llagas 8, Acuña 7, Duran 4, Alabanza 4, Zamar 3, Lingganay 1, Bandaying 0, Reyes 0.

FEU 56 – Cervantes 18, Garcia 12, Sanga 8, Noundou 6, Vinluan 4, Tanuan 3, Knuttel 3, Caluag 2, Exciminiano 0, Cruz 0, Eguilos 0, Manalo 0, Romero 0.

arroca, pals make Tams top UAAP contender
Updated June 10, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern U, boasting of players who had polished their skills with the Smart Gilas Pilipinas team, has been installed as the team to beat in the 72nd UAAP basketball season which fires off July 11 at the Araneta Coliseum.

Mark Barroca, JR Cawaling and Aldrech Ramos are now back in training with the Tams after taking part in the national developmental squad who competed and trained in China, Serbia, the US, Indonesia and Japan the last six months as part of its buildup for top-level tournaments and possibly a shot at a berth in the 2012 London Olympics.

FEU coach Glen Capacio said the troika has improved tremendously since joining the RP team, admitting this would further boost the Tamaraws’ bid when they open their UAAP campaign next month.

“Skills wise, they’ve improved a lot,” said Capacio, “But I think the most important thing is that their level of confidence is high now compared before,” he said.

Barroca, the co-skipper of Smart Gilas, has become a solid all around playmaker while Cawaling has sharpened his outside shooting and emerged as one of the best wing defenders of Smart Gilas. The 6-6 Ramos has extended his range to the three-point area while improving his defense.

Capacio hopes to draw the best from his starters as FEU slugs it out with the league giants, led by defending champion Ateneo and last year’s runner-up La Salle in what promises to be one of the fiercest title chases in years.

Warriors duel Tamaraws for FilOil crown

MANILA, Philippines - University of the East returns to the finals of the FilOil Flying V Pre-Season MVP Cup, but faces a new foe in Far Eastern University.

The Warriors halted San Sebastian’s off-the-form run with a 90-84 triumph to clinch the first championship berth, but the Tamaraws spoiled a repeat of last year’s title showdown by tripping the San Beda Red Lions, 64-58, in the Final Four last night at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Paul Lee knocked in a game-high 26 points for the Warriors, who pulled off the victory minus several key players.

“We were down by six men,” said UE coach Lawrence Chongson. “They were stricken by flu and they have to be checked. But the boys’ didn’t give up. We need this kind of game to test the team’s maturity.”

Reihl Cervantes drilled 19 markers and rookie guard Ryan Roose Garcia added 15 as the Tamaraws upset the three-time NCAA champion Lions.

Elmer Espiritu buried 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Warriors, while Rudy Lingganay played a key role in the clutch to turn a 74-73 lead into an 80-73 advantage.

The Warriors played minus the veteran pair of Pari Llagas and Toto Bandaying and role players John Rey Albanza, Kenneth Acibar, Erwin Duran and John Michael Noble.

Jimbo Aquino shot 21 points to lead the unheralded Stags, who surprisingly won seven of eight games to reach the semifinals.

The scores:

First Game
UE 90—Lee 26, Espiritu 19, Martinez 10, Zamar 9, Acuna 8, Flores 8, Lingganay 4, Reyes 4, Sumido 2.

SAN SEBASTIAN 84—Aquino 21, Cuevas 17, Maconicido 16, Sangalang 8, Semira 5, Raymundo 7, Pascual 4, Najorda 4, Del Rio 2.
Quarters: 16-21, 42-41, 64-65, 90-84

Tamaraws win 2009 Filoil Flying V Cup
by Mia Domingo

FAR EASTERN University won a tightly-contested and dramatic 2009 Filoil Flying V MVP Cup title game, snatching the plum from last year’s champions University of the East, 84-78 at the Filoil Flying V Arena last June 15.

The Tamaraws took advantage of UE’s sluggish start and led by 18 at the 6:25 mark of the third period. At that same time, however, tempers reached fever pitch as Red Warriors coach Lawrence Chongson was assessed a disqualifying foul for allegedly making contact with the game official after he had sought clarification over a no-call on a Paul Lee play.

A 10-15 minute standstill ensued before Chongson headed to the locker room. However, he wasn’t alone as he took with him six of his veteran wards. Lee, Val Acuña, Elmer Espiritu, Rudy Lingganay, James Martinez and Raffy Reyes all exited the court with their coach, leaving just three players and a total of eight cagers on the team.

Apparently, this served as the catalyst for a huge game and emotional run that would surprise everyone in the venue. At the start of the fourth period, with FEU’s lead down to 14, the six Warriors reappeared. Five of them, sans Reyes, reentered the game in a platoon-like substitution. A lead that stood as high as 24 was cut down to single-digits, thanks to the inside incursions of Lee and the consistent play of Acuña.

The drama, though, was merely beginning. With about 38 ticks left in the game clock, Martinez drove hard to the basket but incurred a bad fall. Medics stretchered him off the court and initial reports indicate that the fifth year guard injured his right knee.

A Pipo Noundou turnover in a subsequent FEU possession handed the Red Warriors a chance to come even closer, something they were able to do after Acuña sank a crucial triple to trim the deficit to two, 80-78, with under 16 seconds left. The Recto unit fouled late in the next possession, and a calm RR Garcia, later named Tournament MVP, sank both free throws before stealing the ball and converting on a jumper as time expired.

JR Cawaling led FEU with 20 points, with Mark Barroca and Garcia scoring 18 and 17, respectively. Lee, meanwhile, had 16 markers for UE.

After the game, a visibly disappointed Chongson voiced his concerns over what had transpired during the game. “Even before the Lee incident, I felt we were getting the raw end of the calls. [As for the referee], he made contact with me since he bumped into me when I [tried to] clarify the no-call. If it were only up to me, I would’ve walked out of the game. But we carry the name of UE. I took my veterans with me, and told them that if the lead would go down, it’d be better for them to return to the game. So they did just that.“

In the battle for third, San Sebastian College-Recoletos redeemed itself from a loss the other day to San Beda in the Nike Summer League’s finals by winning the rematch, 87-78. Stags forward Calvin Abueva had a huge game, scoring 27 points. The Red Lions, meanwhile, were led by Dave Marcelo, who tallied 20 markers.
The scores:

First game:

San Sebastian 87 – Abueva 27, Najorda 15, Aquino 14, Pascual 14, Bulawan 12, Raymundo 5, del Rio 2, Gatchalian 0, Semira 0, Dizon 0.

San Beda 78 – Marcelo 20, Daniel 13, Gamalinda 11, Taganas 9, Pascual 8, Caram 6, Tecson 5, Soliman 4, Villanueva 2, Koga 0, Tirona 0, Sorela 0.

Quarter scores: 19-25, 42-37, 68-60, 87-78.

Second game:

FEU 84 – Cawaling 20, Barroca 18, Garcia 17, Cervantes 12, Noundou 10, Eguilos 4, Caluag 2, Exciminiano 0, Sanga 0, Tanuan 0, Manalo 0.

UE 78 – Lee 16, Acuña 15, Martinez 9, Espiritu 8, Reyes 7, Flores 6, Zamar 6, Acibar 4, Tagarda 3, Sumido 2, Lingganay 2, Duran 0, Alabanza 0.

Quarter scores: 27-16, 47-25, 64-50, 84-78.

Far Eastern University survived a last-ditch stand from hell from their university belt neighbors University of the East to claim the Fil Oil Flying V MVP Cup 84 - 78 in front of a raucous crowd at the Arena in San Juan.

FEU stormed to the 47-25 lead at the lemon time break built upon the relentless transition attacks of Smart Gilas national team players Mark "Babyface" Barroca and JR Cawaling as well as strongman center-forward Reil Cervantes. Center Glen Eguilos, emergent superstar Ryan Roose Garcia and Cameroonian forward Pipo Nuondoo also joined the attack as the Red Warriors were reeling from the wave upon wave of Tamaraw baskets.

UE looked shocked and awed and ready to call it a day in the first half. None of their shots were falling, passes were going awry, and the defense, long a staple of UE, seemed to have gone on an early vacation. After an early James Martinez three-pointer, things quickly headed south for the UE game. Power-leaping forward Elmer Espiritu, who displayed a much-improved offensive game in this tournament, couldn't find the bottom of the net. Paul Lee, the new superstar for the red and white, ran into all sorts of trouble trying to penetrate the FEU zone. Head coach Lawrence Chongson went to his bench early and they just could not deliver.

Showing all the frustration within, Chongson charged a referee right in the middle of the court, got called for the technical foul, and was automatically ejected from the playing court for laying hands on a game official. As he left he took his starting unit with him. Espiritu, Lee, Martinez, Val Acuna and Rudy Linganay left the floor and followed their coach to the dugout early in the third period.

FEU smelled the kill already and were up as much as 61-38. But the UE bench dug deep and suddenly put up a fight that seemed to stun the Tamaraws. Paul Zamar cut up the FEU defense with his dribble-penetration and one-man early offense. Lucas Tagarda nailed a trey from their left quarter court then followed that up with a short jumper. Jairold Flores, a former RP Youth Team member, and centers Ken Acibar and John Alabanza took turns pounding the ball inside against the bigger and more experienced Tamaraws with alacrity. By the time the quarter ended it was down 67-55 for FEU.

In the payoff fourth period, Chongson finally sent his starters back to their bench, and they could not have come at a better time. FEU had opened up another 18-point lead. But Acuna, Martinez and Lee went on a 14-0 tear that made it 75-80 with still two minutes left on a drive by Martinez. Action however came to a halt as Martinez had to be brought off the court in a stretcher.

An Acuna trey made it 78-80 with some 39 seconds remaining. FEU head coach Glen Capacio sued for time. FEU then leaned on Garcia for the insurance freethrows and the final count.

"I'm glad we pulled out the win, it was tough but the boys kept their cool, UE is a really tough opponent," said Capacio in a post-game interview. "Hopefully this will give us some momentum going into the UAAP, sana nga nagdere-derecho na," he added.

Garcia was named tournament MVP, while Lee, Espiritu, Cervantes and Sudan Daniels joined him in the Mythical 5. Cawaling led FEU with 20 points while Garcia had 17. Lee had 16 for UE while Acuna added 15.

Martinez was rushed to the St Luke's hospital and was confirmed with an ACL injury.
