First off, lemme start by saying that - finally - even the TV Panel guys of the UAAP and the NCAA now call it PCCL. ;D

Now down to the business at hand. Time to see how the Sweet 16 developments are looking in Metro Manila.

1. Ateneo De Manila - Finished the UAAP at 13-1, poised to complete a back-to-back championship

2. San Sebastian College - Established a new NCAA record of 15 straight wins, set to return to the NCAA Finals

3. University of the East - Back in the UAAP Finals, have won eight straight

4. San Beda College - Still looming large enough to complete a 4-Peat championship

5. Far Eastern University - Unraveled in Round 2 of the UAAP, still have a loaded and sizable roster

6. Jose Rizal University - Best JRU team in years looking good in trying to return to the NCAA Finals

7. Santo Tomas University - UAAP Final 4 afterthought looking to prove they can hang with the big boys

8. Letran College - Inflicted the first loss of San Sebastian in the NCAA, the toughest most physical team in Manila

9. San Sebastian Cavite - Won their second straight NAASCU crown, first team since UM to do so

10. Universal College of Nursing - Reigning NCRAA champions, just won the UCAA

11. University of Manila - Returned to NAASCU prominence this season with a return to the Finals

12. Colegio de Santa Monica - Battled veteran UCN in the UCAA Finals

13. St Francis of Assisi College - Reigning UCLAA champions

14. Arellano University - Strong fifth in a 10-team NCAA field

15. Adamson University - Came on too late in the UAAP but still finished fifth overall

16. Manuel L Quezon University - Won the UCLAA preseason tournament

Hopefully whatever happens these teams will send their full rosters to compete in the PCCL, or in the zonals and wild cards.

All systems go for Phil Champions League Visayas elims at WNU Gym
Thursday, October 1, 2009

WEST Negros University Mustangs gun for a slot in this year’s Philippine Collegiate Champions League when they clash against other Visayas varsity squads in the PCCL Visayas elimination tournament.

The tournament is scheduled on October 13-15 at the LNA Memorial Sports Center (formerly the West Negros University Gym) in Bacolod City.

In this three-day tournament, the top cage teams from Iloilo, Dumaguete, Tacloban, Tagbilaran, Ormoc and Bacolod will slug it out for the right to compete in the national championship where the likes of UAAP top guns Ateneo University, De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, and University of the East as well as NCAA frontrunners San Beda College, Jose Rizal College, Letran and San Sebastian, among others, are expected to be among the top contenders for the national title won last year by the DLSU Green Archers.

Reigning NOPSSCEA champion WNU Mustangs, who are currently gunning for their 11th straight NOPSSCEA title, failed to qualify last year finishing fourth behind the Letran Knights and two other Visayan squads during the PCCL eliminations in Ormoc City.

After winning the titles in the National University Games (UNIGAMES) in 2005 and in the Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) National Students Championship (Inter-Collegiate) in 2006, the Mustangs, now mentored by Troy Sarabia, have yet to nail another national cage crown.

Ateneo, Letran and San Beda finished behind DLSU in last year’s edition of the PCCL, an annual event organized by former RP Team coach Joe Lipa.

The FEU Tamaraws salvaged fifth place last year followed by the UE Warriors in sixth place.

Other top 16 finishers last year were the Mapua Cardinals (seventh), Arellano University Chiefs (eighth), JRU Heavy Bombers (ninth), UV Lancers (10th), USJR Jaguars (11th), San Sebastian (12th) and University of San Carlos (13th).

Lyceum University, Manuel L. Quezon U and University of Cebu completed the top 16 finishers last year.

Admission tickets for this year’s PCCL Visayas elims are pegged at P40 (ringside) and P20 (bleachers), according to Jake Azucena of the WNU Sports Office. (hcv)

Ateneo seeks regional crown
Saturday, October 3, 2009
By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

NEWLY-CROWNED Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) Davao City champion Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Blue Knights are eyeing to win the regional championship tentatively set on October 6 to 8 at the Gaisano South (GS) Sky Gym.

Blue Knights head coach Pochollo "Cholo" Elegino bared this to sportswriters during a victory celebration at Pizza Hut inside the Gaisano Mall of Davao on Thursday evening.

"Winning the city championship over defending champion UM (University of Mindanao) Wildcats is very special for all of us," Eligino said. "But I've always reminded my players that we will always be the underdogs in every game so they will be motivated to strive more and not be complacent. I've conditioned their minds to be hungrier in every tournament."

The regional meet, which will feature the champions of General Santos City, Cagayan de Oro City and Zamboanga City, has not even started and yet the Blue Knights are already facing some problems.

Six-foot-five slotman Joseph Conrad Fernando said the schedule of the regional finals falls during examination week.

"It will be very challenging for all of us if the finals pushes through in those dates," Fernando said.

Elegino, however, said he had suggested to organizers to move the finals during weekend instead. But he said organizers have yet to come up with a reply to his request.

Sweet-shooting Richard Madelo, meanwhile, said they have already mastered the art of joggling time between their academics and basketball.

"There were a few of us who have to rush to our classes right after the finals game against UM. It's really tough but we manage to get by," Madelo said in Filipino.

Elegino admitted they could only practice an hour to an hour and a half every day considering the very tight class schedules of his players, some of whom are graduating students including Steven Keith Awad, Miguel Solitaria and pointguard Paolo Mitchell Sta. Ana.

"We are already happy to have reached this state but we will do our best in the regionals," Elegino said.

Completing the Blue Knights roster are John Rey Hiquial, Martin Allan Gadia, Jarius Lloyd Guingguing, Nathariel Sencio, Jeff Von Catre, Iryll Marco Pagdalian, Marc Salvador Serapio, Felix Carmelo Pepito and Ranel Marc Sencio.

The Blue Knights had won the Davao Association of Colleges and Schools (Dacs) basketball title at the expense of Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC) Crusaders.

Resilient Ateneo shines anew
Thursday, October 1, 2009
By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

THE resilient Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Blue Knights put a lot of heart to hack out a 91-82 victory over the University of Mindanao (UM) Wildcats in the Philippine Collegiate Championship League (PCCL) 2009 Davao City finals before a highly appreciative crowd at the Ladislawa Garden Village Gym Wednesday night.

Six-foot-one guard Richard Madelo sparked the Blue Knights' early rally in the first half with 12 points including back-to-back treys even as six-five slotman Joseph Condrad Fernando pitched in eight points.

Martin Allan Gadia and Iryll Marco Pagdalian also showed too much firepower with two three-pointers each early on the first canto to help lift the Blue Knights to a 44-34 lead at halftime.

But Arnold Adormeo and Miguel Plata combined forces to score 11 and 10 points, respectively, as the Wildcats showered 30 markers in their third quarter surge.

The Blue Knights, mentored by Pochollo "Cholo" Elegino, however, put up solid defense and mastered team work to secure the the win behind Madelo and Miguel Solitaria's efforts in the final canto.

"I really did expect UM to stage a late rally. I even warned my players about it during halftime. I told them they have to be ready for the other team's rally and we have to meet up their challenge," Elegino told Sun.Star Davao Thursday.

He said they pulled off the victory despite Fernando's sprained ankle and Solitaria's cramps.

"Heart. That's what made us win. I credit the pride and will power of my players to win. They never wanted to give it up," Elegino said.
Elegino said the win was very special and memorable.

"This is sweetest victory for me. I think it's the first time Ateneo won the PCCL and that against UM," said the coach whose team also captured the Davao Association of Colleges and schools (Dacs) 2009 basketball title against the Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC) Crusaders recently.

Madelo finished with 22 points while Pagdalian added 19 and Fernando 16 for the Blue Knights. Adormeo scored game-high 24 points for the Wildcats.

The Blue Knights will then advance to the Mindanao championship set on October 6 to 8 where General Santos City champion Holy Trinity College and champions of Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro cities will also see action here in Davao City.

Organizers, however, have yet to finalize the venue of the Mindanao finals where the champion will represent the region to the zonal finals in Cebu enroute to winning a slot to the national championship in Manila.

The tournament is sanctioned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) regional director Regino "Boy" Cua.

Top varsities booked for Champs League
By Joaquin Henson Updated October 03, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - The top four UAAP and NCAA men’s senior basketball teams will join the CESAFI titleholder from Cebu and seven zonal qualifiers in the “Sweet 16” competitions leading to the best-of-3 finals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) before the year ends.

PCCL chairman Rey Gamboa said yesterday the champion team will be awarded cash and/or gift certificates and athletic items in the amount of P400,000, the Manuel V. Pangilinan perpetual bronze sculpture “Abutin Ang Tagumpay” for a year and a scholarship grant and/or sporting goods valued at P500,000.

Last year, PCCL champion La Salle was promised a trip to Serbia to play at the World University Games but the plan was aborted when the Philippines was not included in the 24-nation basketball tournament. Instead, trip sponsor Smart gave La Salle a special scholarship grant amounting to P1 Million. Gamboa personally handed the check to Bro. Bernie Oca during the recent presentation of the PCCL format to the UAAP Board.

Gamboa explained that the Philippines was excluded from the Serbia conclave because of failure to participate in over a decade. “Although the participation fee of $5,000 was remitted to FISU (the Universiade governing body), the Philippine application was still given low priority and eventually not included in the final list,” he said.

This year, Gamboa said the process involving 212 collegiate teams from 27 leagues has four levels. The first level will draw out the top four UAAP and NCAA teams and the CESAFI champion. The second level will determine the regional champions for North/Central Luzon to be held Oct. 8-10 in Dagupan City featuring four titlists from the region, South Luzon/Bicol to be held Oct. 8-10 in Naga City featuring the champions of Naga, Legazpi, Quezon, Tabak and Sorsogon, Visayas, excluding Cebu to be held Oct. 13-15 in Bacolod City featuring champions of Negros Occidental, Iloilo, Ormoc, Leyte, Dumaguete and Bohol and Mindanao to be held Oct. 6-8 featuring champions of Cagayan de Oro, General Santos, Davao and Zamboanga.

Level three will gather the four regional survivors of level two, the champions of NAASCU, NCAA South, UCAA, ISAA, UCLAAI, the fifth and sixth placers of the UAAP (Adamson and La Salle), the fifth and sixth placers of the NCAA, the NAASCU runner-up and the second, third and fourth placers of CESAFI. The 17 teams will battle it out for the remaining seven “Sweet 16” tickets. The qualifiers will be held Nov. 12-14 in Naga, Nov. 4-8 in Cebu and Nov. 9-12 in Manila.

The fourth and final level will be the “Sweet 16” which reel off Nov. 23 using a knockout format, meaning win-or-go-home. The 16 teams will be split into four brackets. The first bracket will be made up of the UAAP champion, the No. 2 team from North/Central Luzon/Metro Manila, the UAAP fourth placer and the NCAA fourth placer. The second bracket will be composed of the NCAA runner-up, the No. 3 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila, the CESAFI champion and the No. 1 team from North/Central Luzon/Metro Manila.

The NCAA champion, the No. 4 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila, the NCAA third placer and the No. 1 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila will comprise the third bracket while the UAAP runner-up, the No. 1 team from South Luzon/Bicol/Metro Manila, the UAAP third placer and the No. 2 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila will play in the fourth bracket. The winners of each bracket face off in the semifinals with the survivors advancing to the best-of-3 finals.

Cash, athletic items, gift certificates and scholarship grants will be awarded to the second, third and fourth placers. The runner-up will receive a total worth of P400,000, the third placer P200,000 and the fourth placer P100,000.

Additionally, Gamboa said trophies, medals, athletic items, gift certificates and/or cash in the total amount of P150,000 will be distributed to the regional champions and special awardees for MVP, Mythical Team, Best Coach and Best Performing Referee.

Gamboa also announced that ABS-CBN will provide TV coverage starting the “Sweet 16.”

I think Ateneo is the team to beat in this PCCL 2009. Don't count on San Beda Red Lions because they are defending NCAA champions. Some other teams like San Sebastian and UE.

Favored here will be teams who will continue to be intact for a reasonable amount of days before the Sweet 16. They should be favored until they actually get beaten in this knock out format.

Any team who "losses" a player to Smart-Gilas, PBL or PBA, the chances of that team will be adversely affected. The NCAA and UAAP teams who will not be having a "complete" line-up preparing and during the competition are in effect playing with handicaps.

Sino-sino yung mga team na ito?

Malalamn natin yan sa takdang panahon.

Teams that have booked spots in the Cebu zonals are NAASCU champion San Sebastian Recoletos Cavite Baycats and UAAP fifth placer Adamson University. Spots are also reserved for the Visayas regional champion, the NCAA fifth placer, and the second to fourth placers of CESAFI.

Already assured of spots in the “Sweet 16” Finals are the Ateneo Blue Eagles, University of the East Red Warriors, Far Eastern University Tamaraws, UST Growling Tigers, San Sebastian College-Recoletos Stags, San Beda Red Lions, JRU Heavy Bombers, and the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights.

Regional finals tip off Tuesday
Sunday, October 4, 2009
By Charles Raymond A. Maxey

THE Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) regional championship fires off October 6 to 8 at the Gaisano South (GS) Sky Gym with four teams competing.

The Ateneo de Davao University Blue Knights will lead the cast in the three-day basketball tournament and will be challenged by the Holy Trinity College of General Santos City, Cagayan de Oro Colleges of Cagayan de Oro and another team from Zamboanga.

The Blue Knights under coach Cholo Elegino earned the right to represent Davao City after beating the University of Mindanao Wildcats Wednesday last week.

Elegino said now that they had won the Davao City eliminations, they are not about to stop and are eyeing the regional crown as well.

Leading the charge for the Blue Knights is the trio of Joseph Conrad Fernando, Richard Madelo and Miguel Solitaria.

The regional event will be a short one and teams competing cannot afford to drop a game otherwise they blow their chances of winning the crown and advancing to the inter-zonal.

Tournament director Rico Biliran said the tournament is a single round-robin affair with the team that has the most number of wins will be declared champion.

Completing the Blue Knights roster are John Rey Hiquial, Martin Allan Gadia, Jarius Lloyd Guingguing, Nathariel Sencio, Jeff Von Catre, Iryll Marco Pagdalian, Marc Salvador Serapio, Felix Carmelo Pepito and Ranel Marc Sencio.

The Blue Knights earlier won the Davao Association of Colleges and Schools (Dacs) basketball title at the expense of Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC) Crusaders.

The PCCL regional event is sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) Southern Mindanao headed by its director Regino "Boy Cua.

PCCL cage loop underway
Monday, October 5, 2009
By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

THE Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) Blue Knights are hoping they will carry the momentum of their rousing win over the University of Mindanao Wildcats into the Philippine Collegiate Champion's League (PCCL)-Inday Sara Regional Finals which get underway at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Gaisano SkyGym.

The Blue Knights will be making their debut in PCCL event and would like nothing but the crown when they play against the best collegiate teams from General Santos City, Cagayan de Oro and Zamboanga.

"We should not be complacent. This is our first time to enter the PCCL regional finals. We might as well make the most of this opportunity," Ateneo de Davao coach Cholo Elegino said.

However, despite their conquest of the highly-favored Wildcats, Elegino still would like to describe the Blue Knights as the underdogs in the three-day basketball tournament which ends on October 8.

Elegino will be relying on a young and talented team which has an impeccable outside shooting. Leading the charge will be the troika of six-foot-five center Joseph Conrad Fernando, high-leaping Miguel Solataria and gunner Richard Madelo.

Cagayan de Oro College of Cagayan de Oro City, Holy Trinity College of General Santos City and Southern City Colleges of Zamboanga City are also eyeing a shot for the title and a slot in the Zonal Finals set in Cebu City.

The event is being sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) and supported by Davao City Vice Mayor Sara Duterte.

CAGAYAN DE ORO College and Holy Trinity College ride the momentum of their stunning victories when they see action Tuesday in the Mindanao regional finals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Gaisano Gym in Davao City.

The Scorpions conquered long-time rival Xavier University, 101-96, in the Cagayan de Oro title game to gain a shot at the Mindanao crown.

In General Santos City, the Holy Trinity Wildcats posted an eight-game sweep and qualified to the regionals for the first time.

The Ateneo de Davao Blue Knights, who dethroned the University of Mindanao Seahawks with a 91-82 win, and the Southern City Colleges Bulldogs will also vie in the Mindanao finals, which dangles a berth to the zonal qualifying games in Cebu.

The Bulldogs topped the Zamboanga tournament after downing Ateneo de Zamboanga, 69-54.

At stake in the Cebu zonals of the national tournament sponsored by PLDT and Smart are four spots to the Sweet 16 Finals in Manila.

Naascu champion San Sebastian-Cavite and UAAP fifth placer Adamson have already qualified for the Cebu zonals, where the Visayas regional champion, the NCAA fifth placer and the second to fourth-placed teams in the Cebu Sports Athletic Foundation (Cesafi) will also see action.

So far, only the teams that made the Final Four of the UAAP and NCAA are already assured of spots in the Sweet 16. They are Ateneo, University of the East, Far Eastern University and University of Santo Tomas and San Sebastian, San Beda, Jose Rizal U and Letran.

Expect a slam-bang action on Saturday at Davao City. The XU Crusaders will no longer be there, they lost to a rugged and physical Scorpions of Cagayan de Oro College at the regional level. Or was the loss attributable also to the fact that Crusaders' key players (two of them) were enticed to transfer schooling to join the Blue Eagles next season? The two have to establish one year residence first in Ateneo and so they were'nt seen playing at either team this season.

Expect the front-court bullies in the person of Buna and Lagang to fight any opposition of the Scorpions' quest for supremacy in Mindanao basketball. They defeated the Crusaders and the win wasn't a luck. :)

Cardinals gear up for tough PCCL zonal
Tuesday, October 6, 2009
By Roderick Osis

FRESH from retaking the coveted basketball crown in the Baguio–Benguet Educational Athletic League (BBEAL), the University of Baguio Cardinals now aim for a rare shot at a national title.

The Cardinals who returned to training Friday last week will see action Thursday for the Northern Central Luzon finals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) to be held at the Divine World College in Dagupan squaring off against the University of Northern Philippines (UNP).

UNP made it to the regional finals after bagging the crown in the Southern Central University Athletic Association (Scuaa), which include Pangsainan State University, the Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University and Mariano Marcos State University.

Also in the title hunt are Lyceum Northwestern University of the Private School Athletic Association with eight other schools and United Central Luzon Athletic Association champion Lyceum of Subic Bay.

The winner will advance to the zonal qualifying games where seven seats will advance to the “Sweet 16” Finals.

It is also a return for the most dominant college team in Northern Luzon after more than two years of absence in regional and national competitions.

Last year, Saint Louis University beat BBEAL champion Cordillera Career Development College to advance to round 32 of the PCCL where it bowed to Emilio Aguinaldo College in the first round.

The Cardinals will have a long road ahead before they can enter into the Sweet 16 of the PCCL after the eliminations for the 212 collegiate teams from 27 leagues which has designated four levels.

The first level will draw out the top four teams from the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) champion. The second level will determine the regional champions for North/Central Luzon to be held October 8-10 in Dagupan City featuring four titlists from the region.

The South Luzon/Bicol eliminations will also be held Oct. 8-10 in Naga City featuring the champions of Naga, Legazpi, Quezon, Tabak and Sorsogon, Visayas, excluding Cebu to be held October 13-15 in Bacolod City featuring champions of Negros Occidental, Iloilo, Ormoc, Leyte, Dumaguete and Bohol and Mindanao to be held October 6-8 featuring champions of Cagayan de Oro, General Santos, Davao and Zamboanga.

Level three will gather the four regional survivors of level two, the champions of National Athletic Association of Schools Colleges and Universities (Naascu), NCAA South, Universities and Colleges Athletic Association (UCAA), Iloilo Sports Athletic Association (ISAA), United Central Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAAI), the fifth and sixth placers of the UAAP (Adamson and La Salle), the fifth and sixth placers of the NCAA, the Naascu runner-up and the second, third and fourth placers of Cesafi.

The 17 teams will battle it out for the remaining seven “Sweet 16” tickets. The qualifiers will be held November 12-14 in Naga, November 4-8 in Cebu and November 9-12 in Manila.

The fourth and final level will be the “Sweet 16” which reel off Nov. 23 using a knockout format, meaning win-or-go-home. The 16 teams will be split into four brackets. The first bracket will be made up of the UAAP champion, the No. 2 team from North/Central Luzon/Metro Manila, the UAAP fourth placer and the NCAA fourth placer. The second bracket will be composed of the NCAA runner-up, the No. 3 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila, the Cesafi champion and the No. 1 team from North/Central Luzon/Metro Manila.

The NCAA champion, the No. 4 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila, the NCAA third placer and the No. 1 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila will comprise the third bracket while the UAAP runner-up, the No. 1 team from South Luzon/Bicol/Metro Manila, the UAAP third placer and the No. 2 team from Visayas/Mindanao/Metro Manila will play in the fourth bracket. The winners of each bracket face off in the semifinals with the survivors advancing to the best-of-3 finals.

Cash, athletic items, gift certificates and scholarship grants will be awarded to the second, third and fourth placers. The runner-up will receive P400,000 in cash, the third placer P200,000 and the fourth placer P100,000.

Update on eliminations here in Mindanao: Ateneo de Davao won over Southern City Colleges of Zamboanga yesterday, 86-58. I had to leave at the end of the first half of the Cagayan de Oro CoC Scorpions vs Holy Trinity of GenSan but the game was close. True, CoC has enforcers and a good go-to guy (Caracol). They also look a lot older compared with players of Ateneo de Davao (they'd be meeting tomorrow). CoC's Buna reminds me of that '90s National University player the TV commentators used to call El Aparador. Buna is probably 6'3 or 6'4 but really bulky, probably a 400-pounder, one Holy Trinity player bounced after bumping him in the first quarter.

Cagayan de Oro Colleges still playing Zamboanga Southern City Colleges, but Scorpions likely to have an easy time as per first few minutes of the game. I was told CDO Scorpions beat Holy Trinity of Gensan yesterday. Looks like it would be the Scorpions going to Cebu for the Vis-Min eliminations later this month.

Davao blasts Zamboanga; Cagayan crushes GenSan
Wednesday, October 7, 2009
By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

THE Ateneo de Davao University (Addu) Blue Knights of Davao City and Cagayan de Oro College (CDOC) of Cagayan de Oro City crushes their respective opponents in the opener of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) Mindanao Finals at the Gaisano South (GS) SkyGym Tuesday.

The title-hungry Blue Knights recovered from a dismal start to blast Southern City College of Zamboanga City, 86-58, while CDOC put up a solid defense in the second half to overcome Holy Trinity College of General Santos City, 91-86.

Blue Knights coach Pochollo "Chollo" Elegino said they have to come up with a major adjustment with the absence of Miguel Solitaria, who was sidelined by an injury.

"We made defensive adjustments since we lacked the size," Elegino said. "I told the players to always play smart and to rely on one another."

The Blue Knights were three-point behind at the end of the first canto but they got their acts together with impressive ball rotation, tight defense and excellent shooting led by Richard Madelo, six-foot-five slotman Joseph Conrad Fernando, Iryll Marco Pagdalian, Felix Carmelo Pepito and Martin Allan Gadia to grab a 39-31 lead at halftime.

SCC's Oscar delos Reyes, Jaybee Porlares, Paulino Rebollos and Shefard Santiago, however, sparked a third quarter rally to cut the Blue Knights lead by just five points.

But the momentum of SCC, mentored by Eddie Morones, vanished in thin air as the Blue Knights' Madelo and Fernando went hot and made several big shots, including three pointers en-route to the win.

Madelo drilled in 20 points while Fernando, Pagdalian, Pepito, Gadia, Hiquial and Catre added 13, 11, eight, seven, six and five points, respectively.

Porlares led SCC with 22, while Delos Reyes made 13, Rebollos with 11 and Santiago with six.

Games were scheduled Wednesday with Ateneo facing HTC and CDOC playing SCC.

Games on Thursday pit SCC against HTC at 2 p.m. and CDOC against Ateneo at 3:30 p.m.

The tournament is organized by the PCCL under tournament chairman Joe Lipa and sanctioned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas regional director Regino "Boy" Cua with the support of Smart, PLDT, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Vice Mayor Sara Duterte.

GenSan dribblers stun Davao
Thursday, October 8, 2009
By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

A THIRD quarter surge came too late for the Ateneo de Davao University (Addu) Blue Knights that bowed to the Holy Trinity College of General Santos City, 86-96, on Day 2 of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champion's League/Duterte Basketball League Mindanao Finals at the Gaisano South Sky Gym Wednesday.

HTC led at halftime, 5-40, with Jomar Balmaceda and Meylan Landicho leading the charge but the Blue Knights of coach Pochollo "Cholo" Elegino somehow rallied to come close, 66-68, at the end of the third canto as Joseph Conrad Fernando, Jarius Lloyd Guinguing and Felix Pepito combined efforts to stage a comeback.

But Balmaceda, Landicho and Eric Lamanilao foiled the hopes of the Blue Knights who succumbed to costly turnovers, miscues and shooting errors.

"Our shooting went off as well as our defense. We need to win over Cagayan de Oro College by at least 15 points. It's a tough task but we will do our best," Elegino said.

Blue Knight Richard Madelo, who scored 20 in the first game opposite Southern City College of Zamboanga, was limited to six points this time.

"I was not really feeling well. But our shooting and defense went really bad," Madelo admitted.

HTC's Balmaceda, Landicho and Lamanilao canned 20, 18 and 17 points, respectively, while Fernando sank 18 while Guinguing added 15 and Pepito with 12 for the Blue Knights.

CDOC hacked out its second win at the expense of SCC Zamboanga, 77-60.

HTC and SCC were still playing as of presstime Wednesday before the Blue Knights were set to go up against CDOC.

At stake is the chance to represent Mindanao in the Zonal Finals in Cebu City.

The PCCL Mindanao finals is organized by the PCCL under tournament chairman Joe Lipa and sanctioned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas regional director Regino "Boy" Cua with the support of Smart, PLDT, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Vice Mayor Sara Duterte. (MLSA)

GenSan earns zonal berth
Friday, October 9, 2009
By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan

THE Holy Trinity College (HTC) of General Santos City won a Zonal Finals berth in Cebu next month after pulling off a 96-94 win over Southern City College of Zamboanga City in the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League/Duterte Basketball League at the Gaisano South Sky Gym in Davao City on Thursday afternoon.

HTC topped the Mindanao finals with a clean 3-0, win-loss slate while Ateneo de Davao University (Addu) Blue Knights, who scored a pulsating 97-95 triumph over Cagayan de Oro College (COC) in overtime, placed second with a 2-1 card.

SCC was up, 75-69, in the final eight minutes of the game but HTC rallied with the combined efforts of Jomar Balmaceda, Eric Ram Lamanilao and Kevin Jolan Pragados, whose three-pointer gave the team an 84-82 lead barely 3:58 left.

A series of lead changes and deadlocks then ensued but the hungrier Rey Albano-coached HTC cagers pulled away with a 92-89 margin in the last 24 seconds.

HTC's Meylan Landicho then converted two more charity shots but SCC's Paulino Rebollos countered with trey to come close at 92-94. Landicho, however, snatched the ball from SCC's John Wayned Pagobo in the remaining eight seconds. Pagobo fouled Landicho who wrapped up the match with two more penalty baskets.

Balmaceda led HTC with 23 points while SCC's prolific shooter Rebollos scored game-high 39 points.

In another game, the Blue Knights found a hero in Felix Carmelo Pepito, who led the searing rally in the final quarter with a series of steals and three-pointers that helped force a 79-all deadlock with bigger COC squad at the end of regulation.

Pepito, Richard Madelo, Joseph Conrad Fernando, Iryll Marco Pagdalian and Martin Allan Gadia put up a solid defense and took turns at the basket despite the consistent three-pointers unleashed by the rival team during the game extension.

Jarius Lloyd Guingguing drilled in 20 points for the Pochollo "Cholo" Elegino-mentored Blue Knights while Pagdalian and Pepito scored 18 each. Madelo and Fernando added 14 and 11, respectively.

Alvin Claunan had 17 points for COC and Julius Hinampas added 16.

The tournament was organized by the PCCL under tournament chairman Joe Lipa and sanctioned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas regional director Regino "Boy" Cua.

The event was supported by Smart, PLDT, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Vice Mayor Sara Duterte.

The Zonal Finals is set on November 4 to 8 in Cebu City where the champion will advance to the nationals set in Metro Manila.

Wildcats gain PCC zonal slot
(The Philippine Star) Updated October 12, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Holy Trinity College General Santos City defeated Ateneo de Davao, 96-86, recently to earn the right to represent Mindanao in the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Championship.

The HTC Wildcats advanced to the zonal qualifying games in Cebu City set Nov. 4-8.

The Mindanao champions earlier disposed of Southern City College of Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro in the PLDT and Smart-backed tournament held at Gaisano gym in Davao City.

The COC Scorpions had to earlier forfeit an earlier win for fielding two players that were not part of their lineup during their “mother league” tournament in Cagayan de Oro.

Guinguing has more than filled up for the absence of Miguel Solitaria
Romy Sabaldan
Davao Beat
Sunday, October 11, 2009

AFTER Ateneo de Davao University had shown its return to dominance in college basketball here, the stage is now set for the biggest gathering of the best in basketball nationwide through the Philippine Collegiate Champions League.

Unfortunately, Davao's best college team will not be there as General Santos City emerged the champion in the point system, 2 win 1 loss triple tie that includes early favorite Cagayan de Oro College.

A week before the Mindanao championship, the blue-clad Ateneo Knights had survived a steering comeback bid of the University of Mindanao Wildcats in the Davao City side championship of the games.

Migs Solitaria was the main man in annexing the right to represent the city in the just-concluded 4-team Mindanao encounter that was ably presented through the joint works of the DBL or the Duterte Basketball League and Boy Cua's Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas.

An injury below his chin had sent the star player to the bench with five stitches leaving behind Sencio, and Fernando in the chores of facing the big boys of General Santos and Cagayan de Oro cities.

Zamboanga City had sent the smallest team in the tournament but undoubtedly the speediest and most hardworking five in the Mindanao-side of the 27 mother leagues tourney nationwide.

They moved like Manny Pacquiao. This could be the same psychological edge the GenSan boys were employing to get past the hometown favorites with only Jarius Guingguing showing the same intensity he had consistently done whether the competing players are his size or not.

If there is someone in the Ateneo team who throws his punches above his weight, that's the small, dependable gunner Guingguing.

Thirsting for a national exposure to extend life in the hardcourt, Davao City's Tony Parker-like tear drop shooter Richard Madelo had an off-night giving more chances for GenSan to maintain its lead all the way to the final buzzer.

Mark Pagdalian, who was a hot-shooting three-pointer in the previous games was also unable to find his range under a tight defensively, rugged physical play of the heftier team.

Cagayan de Oro College had a complete heft and height 5-man team whose arms are twice or thrice as much bigger than that of the Ateneo beanpole in six-foot-five Joseph Conrad Fernando.

After Sencio, we are only left with Solitaria with a well-built six-foot two frame to face the basketball hulks of Mindanao. Unluckily, he injured his beautiful chin in a recent game versus Holy Cross of Davao College Crusaders.

When Guingguing, Pepito and Gadia gallop for a drive in the shaded area, it was as if they were hurdling a scramble of bulldozers in the tournament.

It was the same fearless play of Pepito and Guingguing against Cagayan that inspired the team to annex the lead only in the dying minutes of the fourth quarter en route to a 79-all overtime that eventually went the way of Davao City's No. 1 team 96-86.

But this time, General Santos City will take the lead for Mindanao in the bigger and more competitive zonal encounter in Cebu City a week or two from now.

Hopefully, they will survive in Cebu whose teams are always known to be taking the most advantage in home court play.

Already awaiting the Luz-Vi-Min champions for the final round are the NCR-Metro Manila UAAP and NCAA qualifiers which compose half of the Sweet 16 encounter. Leading the NCR cast of winners are the UAAP Seasons 71 and 72 back to back champion Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles and 2008 national league MVP trophy holders De La Salle Green Archers.

PCCL Beat: There can only be one champion.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
Holy Trinity rules Mindanao finals

Holy Trinity College of General Santos City earned the ticket to the Zonal Finals in Cebu after ruling the Mindanao Finals of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champion’s League/Duterte Basketball League late last week at the Gaisano South Sky gym in Davao City.

With eight seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, Meylan Landicho stole the ball from Southern City College of Zamboanga’s John Wayne Pagobo then got fouled to seal the victory for Holy Trinity against the hard-fighting Zamboangueños, 96-92.

Paulino Rebollos Jr., who led Southern City College with 39 points, hit a three-point shot to slice Holy Trinity’s lead, 92-94, eight seconds left but the Zamboangueños lost the chance to equalize the game.

“Tsamba lang talaga, hindi nga maganda ang laro ng mga bata, na pagod kami against Ateneo de Davao last Wednesday,” said coach Apolinar Torrijos.

The victory made team manager Rey T. Albano smile as they will represent Mindanao to the Zonals on November 4 to 8 in Cebu. Jomar Balmaceda top-scored for Holy Trinity with 23 baskets.

Kevin Jolan Pragados, Rafael Lape, Wendy Versoza, John Rey Masana, Paul James de Mesa, Eric Ram Lamanilao, Ray Anthonette de Leon, Reymar Roxas, Christopher Masaglang, Eddie Gosanes Jr., Bryan Charielle Esguerra, Elcar Jick Gabutan and Don Arturo Desaville will also take a break and will be back for practice in a week for the Zonals, said Torrijos.

The tournament is organized by the PCCL under tournament chair Joe Lipa and sanctioned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas regional director Regino “Boy” Cua with the support of Smart, PLDT, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte and Vice Mayor Sara Duterte.

PCCL Visayas finals open today
BY NIDA BUENAFE

Basketball champion teams from Iloilo , Dumaguete, Bohol, Ormoc, Leyte, and host Bacolod will open their bid today for the regional championship crown in this year's edition of the Philippine Collegiate Championship League at the West Negros University Gym.

Newly-crowned NOPSSCEA champion WNU Mustangs will have their hands full against Iloilo's reigning titlist John B. Lacson Foundation (Maritime), Dumaguete's top team Silliman University, Ormoc's Western Leyte College, and the champion squads from Leyte and Bohol, all eyeing the much-coveted seat in the zonals set next month in Cebu.

The Visayas championship among the six teams in the region will start today at 3:30 p.m. Jake Azucena of the WNU Sports Office said there will be three games everyday with the final round to be played on Thursday.

Top four teams in the zonals will advance to the “Sweet 16” Finals in Manila where they will face top squads, among them the champions and runner-ups from the NCAA and UAAP, and the champions of major leagues such as CESAFI ( Cebu ), CUSA, NAASCU and NCRAA/UCAA.

The Mustangs failed to qualify last year in the “Sweet 16” finishing fourth behind Letran Knights and two other Visayan schools in the PCCL elimination in Ormoc City .

La Salle University went on to win last year's National PCCL title followed by Ateneo de Manila University , Colegio San Juan de Letran and San Beda College.

The PCCL was developed to select the “best of the best” collegiate basketball squad by giving more teams an avenue to look beyond their borders.

Whoever grabs the national title for the season, can claim to have survived the tough road to the championship competing with the best teams other provinces and regions in the country have to offer.

The format of the PCCL allows competitive but relatively unknown teams that are not in the media limelight to pit skills with the glamorous and media-hyped teams from Metro Manila.

While the Manila-based teams may claim of having gone through a more rigid and scientific training, through the PCCL, they could learn a thing or two from their provincial rivals and vice-versa.

Through this league, collegiate players are encouraged to aim higher and aspire to be a Champion of Champions. *NAB

(The Philippine Star) Updated October 14, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - The University of Nueva Caceres Greyhounds retained their title in the Southern Luzon-Bicol regional games of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Championship games at the Naga City Center in Naga City recently.

The Greyhounds thus advanced to the South Luzon-Metro Manila zonal qualifying games set Nov. 12-14 in Naga City.

The championship, a nationwide search for the country’s top collegiate team, is sponsored by PLDT and Smart.

The Greyhounds completed a sweep of the single-round regional games that drew champion teams from Legaspi City, Tabac, Sorsogon and Quezon participating.

First to fall was Bicol Colleges, 76-66, followed by a lopsided win over Tabac champion Amano Cope College, 71-40. UNC completed the sweep by outlasting Sorsogon champion CCDI Wildcats, 69-62, and Calayan Educational Foundation of Quezon Cougars, 80-60.

The Greyhounds will join the defending national champions De La Salle Green Archers (UAAP 6th), St. Francis of Assisi Doves (UCLAAI champion) and the NCAA-South champion in the zonal competition.

John B, WNU draw first blood, clobber Silliman, Leyte Colleges

Unrelenting even after a strong start, West Negros University opened its bid in the Visayas Regional Championship of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League with an emphatic101-53 victory over Leyte Colleges last night at the WNU Gym in Bacolod City.

Taking advantage of their height and heft, the Mustangs broke away in the second period and sustained their sensational form up until the end to gain a share of the lead with the John B. Lacson Maritime Foundation Inc of Iloilo.

The Mustangs applied the full-court press and rode behind their sleek run and gun game to beat the Tacloban champions and move within a win of clinching a seat in the crossover semifinals on Thursday.

Slotman Virgilio Dapar topscored with 15 points, including nine in the second quarter when the Mustangs extended a 21-11 lead to 50-21 a minute before the break.

The Mustangs were so dominant they led by as much as much as 50 points at 101-51 in the dwindling seconds.

The convincing win, however, failed to satisfy Mustangs coach Troy Sarabia who expects an improved performance from his team against Bohol Institute of Technology at 6 p.m. today.

“It’s a good start but I’m expecting more from the team,” said Sarabia, who guided the Mustangs to an 11th straight NOPSSCEA crown last week.

“We can’t say that we can win the championship with the way we played.”

JBLMF also banked on a fiery start to repulse Dumaguete champion Silliman University, 71-43, in the first game.

Edwin Peremne and Ken Ferrariz combined for 23 points for JBLMF, which raced to a 22-5 lead at the end of the first period. The Silliman Stallions continued to struggle in the second period, allowing John B. to grab a 35-14 advantage at halftime.

Jetric Sumido contributed 14, while Jeff Jacinto and Alfie Villariza chipped in 13 each for the Mustangs, who were hardly threatened.

Rushmore Catalino had 11 points, Raul Suyod made nine, Francis Merin came through with eight, Briton Javelona added six and Jestoni Agriam and Robert Lauron also combined for six to complete the scoring.*

PCCL REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Mustangs hope to clinch title today

West Negros University overcame a tight start to score runaway 101-53 victory over Bohol Institute of Technology and reach the semifinals of the Visayas region of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the WNU Gym last night.

The Mustangs overwhelmed the champions from Bohol with their run-and-gun game, although it took a while for them to get going.

BIT delivered an early jolt, racing to an 8-0 lead in the first two minutes of the game, before the Mustangs turned their game up a notch to duplicate their triumph over Leyte Colleges Tuesday night.

“We had a slow start,” said WNU coach Troy Sarabia. “Good thing we were able to recover. We cannot afford to play like this in the semifinals that's why we'll be making some adjustments.”

The victory handed the Mustangs the top seed in group A heading into today's knockout semifinals.

The reigning NOPSSCEA champions will meet group B second seed Western Leyte Colleges, whose players, interestingly, are also collectively known as the Mustangs.

John B. Lacson Maritime Foundation University of Iloilo topped group B after dumping BIT, 89-61, for its second straight win.

The Dolphins drew strength from Edwin Peremne who finished with 21 points, including 12 in the first half.

If WNU and JBLMFU hurdle their semifinal opponents, they will clash in the finals, which stakes a spot in the zonal qualifying stage in Cebu next month, at 6 p.m. also today.

Earlier, WLC eliminated Silliman University with a 75-51 crushing, while BIT also booted out Leyte Colleges, 90-80. Silliman and Leyte Colleges will play for fifth place today.

After falling into that early deficit, the Mustangs, with Briton Javelona and Jetric Sumido providing energy off the bench, put on their skates to outscore BIT, 27-11, for the remainder of the opening period.

Javelona pumped in seven of his 9 points in the quarter, while Sumido finished with 18 markers, including 6 in the first period.

Another 30-point burst in the second period put the Mustangs comfortably ahead, 57-31, but the opening minutes of the third quarter had Sarabia concerned at the way his team played.

“They were showboating a little, they could just have made the plays simple,” Sarabia said. The Mustangs, however, were firmly in control.

A two-handed slam by Raul Suyod which had the crowd on its feet punctuated the victory for the Mustangs, who ruled the Bacolod-Iloilo eliminations last year, but fell short in the zonal phase in Ormoc.

The 6-foot- 4 Suyod came through with 18 points, while Rolly Jaca and Alfie Villariza added 13 and 12, respectively. Rushmore Catalino contributed 10, Francis Merin had 7 and Jeff Jacinto and Virgilio Dapar posted five apiece.*

PCCL REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP
Mustangs capture Visayas crown
Friday, October 16, 2009

The West Negros University Mustangs grabbed another crown last night when they swept the Visayas regional tournament of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League in Bacolod City .

Playing their best, the Troy Sarabia-mentored Mustangs delivered as they shrugged off a sluggish start to trounce John B. Lacson Maritime Foundation University, 80-69, in the finals before a big crowd at the WNU Gym.

With the victory, the Mustangs claimed their third title this year, after the NOPSSCEA and the LNA7 Open Basketball Tournament, where they beat a star-studded Ticel-Vladimir Gonzales squad.

The Mustangs overcame a cagey first quarter and finished strong in the second and third periods to beat the erstwhile undefeated Dolphins, who won three games in a row to reach the finals.

“We kept our focus and stayed together because we know they are a very tough team to beat,” said coach Troy Sarabia, whose squad beat Western Leyte College , 122-72, in the semifinals yesterday morning.

“It will take a lot of effort from us to make the Sweet 16, but games like this prepare us for that challenge,” added Sarabia, who expressed gratitude to the university administration, including WNU president Suzette Agustin, for its all-out support to the team.

The Mustangs, who captured an 11th straight NOPSSCEA crown last week, move on to the zonal qualifying phase in Cebu set Nov. 6 to 8.

“We thank God for this victory,” said Mustangs manager Tony Agustin, who is also WNU sports director.

“This win is a testament of our teamwork. Qualifying for the Sweet 16 is our target. But preparing for such a difficult tournament is very important and I am hoping that the coaching staff and the players respond to the challenge.”

It will be an uphill climb for the Mustangs as they slug it out with Adamson, Arellano University , San Sebastian Cavite, Holy Trinity College of Davao and the second to fourth placers of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation for the four places to the Sweet 16 in Manila .

With the Dolphins opting for a more physical approach, the Mustangs used their speed to blow the game wide open in the second half.

The Mustangs also tightened up their defense in the second half to silence the Dolphins, who advanced to the finals via a 103-57 blowout of Bohol Institute of Technology.

Versatile big man Raul Suyod, showing remarkable improvement after sitting out last year, came off the bench to score 15 points, including 10 in the second period.

With the game tied at 30, the 6-foot-4 Suyod caused all sorts of problems for the Dolphins, scoring six in a 10-2 blast to close the second quarter.

The Mustangs came out with a spring in their step in the third period with Alfie Villariza and Jeff Jacinto scoring consecutive baskets as WNU slowly pulled away, 54-43.

A fastbreak lay-up by Virgilio Dapar off an assist by Villariza gave the Mustangs their biggest lead yet at 63-45 with 16 seconds left in the period.

The Dolphins threatened at 61-75 on a triple by Edwin Peremne with 3:20 remaining, but Jacinto's long triple restored order for the Mustangs.

The crafty Villariza registered a game-high 19 points, after exploding for 25 in the semifinal victory over WLC. Jacinto posted 4 points, with six coming from beyond the arc.

Briton Javelona, Rolly Jaca and Jacinto took turns in limiting the effectiveness of Dolphins' chief gunner Peremne. The JBLMFU forward still finished with 17 points, but most of them came when the outcome was already settled.

Ken Ferrariz and David Torbeso contributed 16 for the Dolphins, who emerged champion in the Iloilo PRISAA.

On their way to the finals, the Mustangs also beat Leyte Colleges 101-53, and BIT, 109-53.

So we now have 3 of the regional champions, who now proceed to the zonals -
North/Central Luzon : -
South Luzon / Bicol : U of Nueva Caceres
Visayas : West Negros U
Mindanao : Holy Trinity College (GenSan)

Was wondering why the weren't any North Luzon results, but then realized that might not have pushed through due to the storm and flooding :'( - the tournament was supposed to be in Dagupan. I just hope and pray that they all recover quickly and receive all the help they can get...

Mustangs eye PCCL Sweet 16 berth via Cebu zonals Nov. 6-8
Monday, October 19, 2009
By Henry C. Villalva

IT will be quite a tall order for West Negros University Mustangs, but nailing a berth in the Sweet 16 of this year's Philippine collegiate Champions League.

Coach Troy Sarabia, who also guided the Mustangs to its 11th straight NOPSSCEA crown this year, said after last week's PCCL Visayas victory over the hard-fighting John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University of Iloilo that even if it's not going to be an easy climb to the Sweet 16, games like the Visayas title tiff versus the Dolphins "prepare us for the challenge of landing a berth in the Sweet 16."

No less than team manager Anthony Carlo Agustin, chairman of the West Negros University Committee on Sports Management & Development, acknowledged "it will be an uphill climb," but nevertheless congratulated the Mustangs for winning the Visayas qualifying tournament and admitted "qualifying for the Sweet 16 is our target."

For the Mustangs to make a mark in the Cebu zonals next month, they will have to again get quality minutes from vastly-improved big man Raul Suyod, who led the Mustangs in prevailing over the Dolphins, 80-69, last October 15, when he showcased his versatility finishing with 15 points, 10 in the second quarter when the Mustangs clamped down on their Iloilo rivals via a suffocating defense.

In Cebu on November 6-8, the Mustangs will pit skills against NAASCU champion San Sebastian Cavite, Arellano University, Adamson University, Mindanao champion Holy Trinity College as well as against the second to fourth placers in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc.

Already assured of Sweet 16 slots are UAAP champion Ateneo University, University of the East, Far Eastern University and University of Sto. Tomas; NCAA Final Four squads San Beda College, San Sebastian College, Jose Rizal University and Letran College, plus the Cesafi champion.

WNU failed to land a Sweet 16 berth last year when they were eliminated in the Ormoc Visayas zonals.

PCCL resumes, UB battles UNP
Friday, October 23, 2009
By Roderick Osis

GAMES in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) resumes Saturday after the playing venue in Dagupan was flooded during the onslaught of Typhoon Pepeng.

Organizers said the four remaining games in the regional eliminations will be played in separate venues to ensure the safety of participants during the duration of the games.

University of Baguio will try to regain its winning ways when its goes up against University of Northern Philippines this coming Saturday, October 24 at the Cordillera Career Development College gymnasium while Lyceum Northwestern University squares off with Lyceum of Subic Bay in Olongapo City also Saturday afternoon.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas area coordinator Danny Soria said the games where suspended the other week after floodwaters submerged almost the entire city of Dagupan.

The Cardinals will have a long road ahead before they can enter into the Sweet 16 of the PCCL after the eliminations for the 212 collegiate teams from 27 leagues, which have designated four levels.

UB will have to win against visiting UNP squad and hopes tormentor Lyceum of Subic Bay loses to LNU to advance in the zonal where a tougher field also awaits them.

The Cardinals will try to eye one of the seven seats to the "Sweet 16" Finals which will be at stake at the zonal qualifying games scheduled to be held starting November in Naga City, Cebu City, and Metro Manila.

De La Salle University Green Archers, last year's Philippine Collegiate Champion and sixth placer in the UAAP this year, and the Adamson University Falcons, UAAP fifth placer this year, are solid favorites to barge into the finals via the zonal games.

The Green Archers will be in Naga City for the games on November 12 to 14 while the Falcons are competing in the Cebu City games scheduled on November 4 to 8.

The fifth and sixth placers in the NCAA will also advance to the zonal games with a chance to earn seats in the "Sweet 16" Finals.

The Cardinals earned a slot in the regional eliminations of the PCCL after winning the basketball crown in Baguio - Benguet Educational Athletic League besting Saint Louis University in their best of three showdowns.

UB lost via a four-point squeaker Thursday in their opening game against United Central Luzon Athletic Association (UCLAA) champion Lyceum of Subic Bay, 78 - 82.

PCCL resumes other half of north/central Luzon games
Thursday, October 29, 2009

GAME between the University of Baguio and University of Northern Philippines for the Philippine Collegiate Champions League finally fires off Friday at the Cordillera Career Development College gym.

The Cardinals, Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League champion faces the taller State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association champion Sharks in their 1:30 p.m. duel in a bid to secure a possible slot in the zonal championship of the PCCL.

UB will have a long road ahead before it can enter into the Sweet 16 of the PCCL after the eliminations for the 212 collegiate teams from 27 leagues, which have designated four levels.

UB will have to win against visiting UNP squad and hopes tormentor Lyceum of Subic Bay loses to Lyceum Northwestern University to advance in the zonal where a tougher field also awaits them.

The Cardinals will try to eye one of the seven seats to the "Sweet 16" Finals which will be at stake at the zonal qualifying games scheduled to be held starting November in Naga City, Cebu City, and Metro Manila.

The regional champion will advance to the Manila zonals set Nov. 9 to 12 joining UCAA champions Universal College Dragons, NAASCU runners-up University of Manila Hawks, the ISSA and PISCUAA champions and the NCAA sixth placer.

Last year, Saint Louis University beat BBEAL champion Cordillera Career Development College to advance to round 32 of the PCCL.

SLU bowed to Emilio Aguinaldo College in the first round.

The Philippine Collegiate Championship is a nationwide multi-level competition starting with the "mother league" games.

The various leagues' winning teams will advance to the regional, zonal and the final phase, the "Sweet 16" Final Challenge in Manila.

The tournament will also provide teams and players the opportunity to look beyond their "mother leagues" and aim for higher achievements such as the regional and zonal championships and the chance to be crowned as the Philippine champion.

Aside from the prestige of being crowned the national champion, schools can also look forward to over P2 million worth of scholarships and other grants and prizes at stake in the regional, zonal and national championships.

The grants will be a big incentive especially for schools with limited funds for sports development. (Roderick Osis)

Cardinals stops UNP Sharks in PCCL Games
Saturday, October 31, 2009
By Roderick Osis

UNIVERSITY of Baguio bucked University of Northern Philippines, 92-77, as it kept its hope alive for possible stint in the zonal eliminations of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League.

The event was held at the CCDC gymnasium Thursday afternoon.

UB, who earlier lost to Lyceum of Subic Bay in the other north/central regional eliminations of the tournament, proved to be a tough nut to crack.

Klayrhil Elefante was his usual self, leading the Cardinals against the Sharks unleashing four triples on his 21 points, where UB led all the way after a rousing 14-2 advantage with 5:02 remaining in the first quarter.

From then on, the Baguio - Benguet Educational Athletic League men's basketball champion never looked back as it even posted an eleven-point advantage way back in 8:29 remaining the second quarter.

But the visiting Sharks slowly clawed their way back into the ball game after a 14-6 blast staring at the Cardinals lead by three, 37-34 with 1:58 remaining in the first half.

The Cardinals then went on to a 10-4 blasts to pull away anew, 47 - 38, at the end of the second period.

UNP was unable to find answers to the Cardinals offense with the home team erupting for another 10-0 blitz to finally seize control of the ball game and enjoy a 57-38 with 8:07 remaining in the third period.

An almost free for all almost erupted with 1:07 left in the third quarter after UB's Billy Boado and a UNP Sharks player got entangled inside the shaded lane but cooler heads prevailed to avoid any melee.

Boado and Darwin Balmores chipped in 15 and 11 points, respectively, for the Cardinals who are gunning for a possible stint in the zonal eliminations of the PCCL next month.

UB's loss to Lyceum of Subic Bay is currently under protest after the latter reportedly fielded a player who is not part of the original line up during the Central Luzon Athletic Association.

A source from the PCCL who refused to be named said they are looking for the credentials of the two players who were fielded by Lyceum during their games in Dagupan City.

The source added once they can present their evidence to PCCL and prove their allegations, UB will automatically represent North/Central Luzon in the zonal eliminations of the collegiate league.

WNU, Arellano U post wins in PCCL zonal opener
Thursday, November 5, 2009
By Henry C. Villalva

WEST Negros University and Arellano University gained victories at the start of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League zonal qualifying tournament at the WNU Gym Wednesday night.

The Mustangs coasted to a 93-77 victory over Mindanao champion Holy Trinity College Wildcats, after the Chiefs, fifth placers in the NCAA, survived upset-conscious University of San Carlos, 79-74.

Alfie Villariza, Jeff Jacinto and Jetric Sumido finished in double-figures as the Mustangs prevailed despite an error-prone performance.

The margin for error becomes smaller for the Mustangs when they take on the USC Warriors Thursday. The Chiefs are heavily favored to cruise past the Wildcats in the first game at 4:30 p.m.

A win by the Chiefs and the Mustangs will guarantee the two squads spots to the Sweet 16 tournament.

Defeat, however, could put the Mustangs in a must-win situation against the Chiefs on Friday.

"We cannot expect to win if we play the way we did tonight," said WNU coach Troy Sarabia, who rued the several turnovers committed by his team in the third quarter.

Interestingly, the Mustangs took their biggest lead at 20 points in the third period, where Sarabia opted for a more guard-laden lineup of Villariza, Jacinto, Rolly Jaca and Robert Lauron.

The Mustangs applied the press but it took awhile for them to wear down the Wildcats.

Sumido announced his return by drilling in back-to-back triples for a 69-49 bubble late in the third quarter.

The Mustangs inexplicably lost their focus anew, allowing the Wildcats to come within 70-77 on Eric Lamanilao's triple with seven minutes remaining.

Jacinto quelled the rally with a triple and a fastbreak lay-up. A jumper by Villariza pushed the lead to 12 and a two-handed dunk by Raul Suyod all but wrapped up the victory, 90-75, with 3:05 left.

John Tayongtong starred for the Chiefs with 11 of his team's last 18 points in the final five minutes.

The Chiefs trailed for most of the way as the Warriors ran the fastbreak at every opportunity.

Adrian Celada kept Arellano in the game with 14 of a team-high 21 points coming in the first half, where the Chiefs trailed by as many as eight points.

"I told the players at halftime that we are not here to take a vacation, but to compete" said Arellano coach Junjie Ablan. "We were very sluggish in the first half. The players were not moving well enough. Good thing they responded in the second half."

Tayongtong sank a triple that beat the shotclock for a 78-72 lead with 12 seconds remaining, after June Cantonao made back-to-back treys to cut the deficit, 72-75, with 31 seconds left.

The Warriors grabbed a 62-59 cushion heading into the final five minutes after a triple by Giovanni Padillo. But the Chiefs unleashed a 12-4 spurt, capped by an undergoal stab by Celada for a 71-66 advantage in the last 1:20.

Bacolod Representative Monico Puentevella, who is also Philippine Olympic Committee chairman, graced the opening ceremonies together with Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas official Robert Uy and Negros Basketball Association president Oscar "Dodong" Bascon.

The Scores:

First Game

Arellano 79 - Celada 21, G. Ciriacruz 14, Tayongtong 13, Rivera 9, Agustin 7, Virtudazo 6, I. Ciriacruz 5, Dimla 2, Miranda 2, Reducto 0, Anquilo 0.

USC suffers snag in ‘Sweet 16’ bid at PCCL hoop
Cebu Daily News
First Posted 10:42:00 11/05/2009

THE University of San Carlos Warriors’ bid for a slot in the “Sweet 16” of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League got off to a rocky start after they were outlasted by the Arellano University Chiefs, 74-79, in the zonal qualifying stage yesterday at the West Negros Gym in Bacolod City.

The Warriors were looking to make it back to the quarterfinal stage of the country’s most prestigious gathering of collegiate basketball champions and had the inside track on their first win as they led for most of the game before collapsing in the final period. USC made it to the “Sweet 16” last year by virtue of their third place finish but were eliminated by eventual champions De La Salle University.

USC once again won third place this season but rule changes in the tournament prompted them to go through the zonal eliminations. They led 17-13 after the first 10 minutes of play and also were ahead at halftime, 33-29, behind the hot shooting of CESAFI Mythical Five member Giovanni Padillo and versatile forward Sam Hermosa.

However, the Chiefs, fifth placers in the NCAA basketball tournament, came alive in the second half and rallied behind the effective play of Mythical Team member Gio Ciriacruz and PBL veteran Adrian Celada to take a 52-50 lead entering the final period.

The Warriors were ahead 62-61 with 4:15 left in the game but suddenly crumbled, committing two straight turnovers that Arellano converted for a 68-62 lead. USC got to within four, 69-73, with less than a minute remaining but the Chiefs held steady down the stretch.

Celada led the Chiefs with 21 points while Padillo paced the Warriors with a game-high 23 points. Mike Cantonao and Hermosa wound up with 14 and 13 markers respectively.

Mustangs vs. Chiefs in PCCL zonal featured game Friday
Thursday, November 5, 2009
By Henry C. Villalva

ARELLANO University cruised to a convincing 108-47 triumph over Holy Trinity College for its second straight win in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League zonal qualifying tournament.

The event was held at the LNA Memorial Sports Center (formerly the West Negros University Gym) in Bacolod City.

The Chiefs relied on their outside shooting to break away in the first quarter and coasted to the win that all but ensured their entry to the Sweet 16. Arellano can sweep the zonals with a win over host WNU tonight.

The Mustangs, the reigning NOPSSCEA champions, prevailed over Holy Trinity, 93-77, for their first win Tuesday night.

The Chiefs, who barely survived University of San Carlos, 79-74, buried 16 triples en route to the one-sided victory over the Wildcats, who are no longer in contention for one of the two Sweet 16 slots.

Jerry Miranda led the Chiefs with 24 points, built on six triples, while Isaiah Ciriacruz and point guard Leo Anquillo, who stands a shade above five feet, chipped in 13 each.

Arellano started the game like a house on fire, drilling five treys in the first quarter with Adrian Celada, who topscored with 21 points in the game against USC, tallying two triples.

With the outcome settled early, coach Junjie Ablan didn't see the need to give main man Gio Ciriacruz major minutes. The 6 foot 4 Cciriacruz still finished with 10 points.

Against HTC Tuesday night, the Mustangs took their biggest lead at 20 points in the third period, where Sarabia opted for a more guard-laden lineup of Villariza, jacinto, Rolly Jaca and Robert Lauron.

The Mustangs applied the press but it took awhile for them to wear down the Wildcats.

Jetric Sumido announced his return by drilling in back-to-back triples for a 69-49 bubble late in the third quarter.

The Mustangs inexplicably lost their focus anew, allowing the Wildcats to come within 70-77 on Eric Lamanilao's triple with seven minutes remaining.

Jacinto quelled the rally with a triple and a fastbreak layup. A jumper by Villariza pushed the lead to 12 and a two-handed dunk by Raul suyod all but wrapped up the victory, 90-75, with 3:05 left.

The Scores:

WNU 93 - Villariza 15, sumido 14, Jacinto 14, Suyod 9, Jaca 9, Merin 7, Catalino 6, Javelona 6, Lauron 4, Agudelo 3.

HTC 77 - Roxas 19, Lamanilao 15, Pragados 14, Landicho 8, Masiana 8, Esguerra 6, Masaglang 4, Versoza 2, De Mesa 1.

Quarters: 25-18, 48-38, 73-60, 93-77.

Arellano 108 - Miranda 24, I. Ciriacruz 13, anquillo 13, G. Ciriacruz 10, Catapang 10, Celada 9, Agustin 6, Apostol 4, Salcedo 4, Tayongtong 4, Reducto 4.

HTC 47 - Masaglang 10, Pragados 9, Roxas 7, Desaville 4, Versoza 3, De Mesa 3, Lamanilao 3, De Leon 2, Landicho 2, Masana 2, Esguerra 2.

UC vs. Adamson in Zonal elims today
(The Freeman) Updated November 06, 2009 12:00 AM

CEBU, Philippines - The road to the elite Sweet 16 for the University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters will begin in their own turf when they face UAAP fifth-seed Adamson University Falcons in the main match of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) zonal eliminations at the Cebu Coliseum.

Games today: (Cebu Coliseum)

5:30 pm USJR vs. SSC Recoletos-Cavite

7:15 pm Adamson vs. UC

A slot to the Sweet 16 is waiting for the top two teams of the Cebu leg and another two slots are at stake for the top two qualifiers in the Bacolod zonals where the CESAFI third placer University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors are in danger of being eliminated after losing to the NCAA fifth-ranked Arellano University Chiefs, 74-79.

Another Cebu bet seeking redemption are CESAFI fourth placers University of San Jose Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars, who will host the San Sebastian College Stags-Cavite, the NAASCU champions.

With University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers getting an automatic slot as incentive for winning the CESAFI crown, the Webmasters once again would try to prove a point that there is still a room for adjustment after losing to the powerhouse Lancers.

The Webmasters hope to bank on 6-9 slotman June Mar Fajardo to carry the cudgels.

The Falcons of coach Leo Austria will parade ex-UC junior standout Jan Julius Colina who is among Adamson’s brightest stars.

The team also includes Jeric Canada, Lester Alvarez, Leo Canuday and Mike Galinato, among others.

Last year, the Webmasters failed to adv ance into the Sweet 16 after losing to the Letran Knights of coach Louie Alas held in Ormoc City and this year.

UC coach Roel Gomez hopes to have a better showing this year.

The others who are on hand to fortify the Webmasters’ bid are sweet-shooting Moncrief Rogado, Janssen Abella, Kelvin Juliane, Kevin Quilantang and Rommel Luceno.

Meanwhile, the Jaguars of coach Edito Salacut, will be manned by Edwin Bibera, Kurt Amores, Marin Duran, Abulaiz Suliman, Edmar Pateno and Aniceto Lapiz, Jr. just to name a few.

The PCCL zonals will follow a single round robin format. The three-day joust ends on Sunday. - GGM (THE FREEMAN)

UC bags seat in Sweet 16
Cebu Daily News
First Posted 07:04:00 11/09/2009

THE UNIVERSITY of Cebu (UC) Webmasters made their way to the Sweet 16 of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) after they bested the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars, 103-86, in the Cebu interzonal qualifying competition yesterday at the Cebu Coliseum.

The Webmasters finished the tournament with a 2-1 (win-loss) record and all but insured their slot in the round-of-16, pending a miracle win by the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Baycats over the undefeated Adamson Falcons in the second game yesterday. That match was still being played as of press time.

UC led all the way and was paced by 6-foot-10 June Mar Fajardo's 26 points. Speedy pont guard Kelvin Juliane also had 26 points built on four three-point shots. Robinson Mohamad tallied 16 markers.

The win was a fitting follow-up to their masterful 74-66 win over the two-time NAASCU champions Baycats late Saturday night.

While Fajardo was his usual dominant self, reserve guard Mohamad provided the necessary firepower to tow the Webmasters to the victory as he made up for the absence of star wingman Moncrief Rogado.

Rogado was sidelined after injuring his ankle in their game against Adamson last Friday.

Mohamad exploded for 19 points built on six three-point shots, four of which coming in the second canto, where the Webmasters built a 10-point lead, 37-27, heading into the halftime break. Fajardo scored 23 points to lead UC in that match./Correspondent Jonas Panerio

UC clinches Sweet 16 slot
By Gabby G. Malagar (The Freeman) Updated November 09, 2009 12:00 AM

CEBU, Philippines - The University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters easily demolished the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars, 103-86, to advance into the Sweet 16 of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) last night at the Cebu Coliseum.

As usual, 6-foot-11 center June Mar Fajardo showed the way for the Webmasters with 26 points but it was Kelvin Juliane who stole the limelight by also hitting 26 markers, 22 of them in the first half spiked with four triples in the first period alone.

Robinson Mohamad, who had a lackluster performance in their victory over the Baycats, finished with 16 points and Kevin Quilantang chipped in with 10 points for the Webmasters.

The Webmasters, thus, joined nine-time CESAFI champion University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers and third placer University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors, the qualifier in the Bacolod leg, into the elite stage of the prestigious tournament.

The Jaguars, who were playing in a non-bearing game against the Webmasters, were led by Edmar Pateño and Abulaiz Suliman with 12 points each followed by Marvin Duran with 11.

Adamson University Falcons, meanwhile, are aiming for the second slot but with their 2-0 win-loss record, they could finish as top qualifier. As of this writing though, the Falcons and the Baycats were still playing for final positioning.

The scores

UC (103) - Fajardo 26, Juliane 26, Mohamad 16, Quilantang 10, Abella 8, Cayanong 5, Luceño 4, Tano 3, Bernil 2, Miranda 2, Gomez 1

USJ-R (86) - Pateño 12, Suliman 12, Duran 11, Bibera 9, Lapiz 9, Dela Peña 7, Amores 7, Villaver 7, Dela Rama 3, Albarillo 2, Nudalo 2, Alquizola 1

Halftime: 52-39. – THE FREEMAN

Webmasters bag Sweet 16 slot
Sunday, November 8, 2009
By Marian C. Baring

THE University of Cebu Webmasters got a shot in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League Sweet 16 round after picking up two victories to bounce back from their first day debacle of the PCCL Cebu Zonals.

The Webmasters pulled off a 74-66 win over the San Sebastian College Baycats Saturday night and scored a 103-86 victory over the University of San Jose-Recoletos at the Cebu Coliseum yesterday.

In last Saturday’s game, the Webmasters banked on the three-point savvy of Robinson Mohammad, who badgered the basket to help UC build up a good lead en route to their victory over the two-time Naascu champions.

Close

It was a close game at the start that saw both teams in several deadlocks after SSC took a 15-13 at the first frame.

In the second period, the Webmasters scorched hot from the perimeter with Mohammad scoring three triples. Kelvin Quilantang and Jansen Abella also hit their marks as UC broke away with a 10-point lead 37-27, at the turn.

SSC closed in, 44-41 in the third period behind a 14-7 run but UC’s Mikey Gomez ended it with another booming three-pointer that got UC back on its feet.

June Mar Fajardo, whose presence was almost not felt in their first game, showed his grit once more in the shaded area and led the UC scorers with 23 points.

Mohammad scored 19 on six triples and a free throw, to help UC keep its PCCL dream alive.

Against USJ-R yesterday, Fajardo and Kelvin Juliane steered the team to victory as they scored 26 points each, while Mohammad had 16.

With the win, UC boosted made it to the Sweet 16 round of the PCCL.

Cesafi nine-time champion, University of the Visayas earned an automatic slot by virtue of their Cesafi title, while University of San Carlos Warriors advanced after placing second in the Bacolod Zonals.

The top two will advance to the Sweet 16 round.

Late last night, Adamson and SSC were fighting for the final spot for the Sweet 16 round.

PCCL Cebu Zonals ends with protest
Monday, November 9, 2009
By Marian C. Baring

THE Philippine Collegiate Champions League Cebu Zonals wrapped up last Sunday with the University of Cebu becoming Cebu’s third team to make it to the Sweet 16 round of the PCCL national finals on Nov. 23 in Manila and Adamson University accusing officials of rigging the results.

The tournament did not finish without hitches as Adamson head coach Leo Austria promised to file a protest against San Sebastian College, their final opponent in the tournament.

Austria said the referees were biased toward the SSC because most players were Bisaya.

“There’s a conspiracy. The referees knew how much SSC needed for the quotient and they are helping them get that,” said Adamson head coach Leo Austria, whose star player, Julius Colina, is from Mandaue.

Austria said he will be filing a protest after they lost to the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Baycats, 88-78, Sunday night, that forced them out of the next round of the PCCL.

However, Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy took offense and told Austria off.

“There were some lapses from the referees. But these were very minor. This was not enough for him to accuse our referees with conspiracy. I told him that maybe he should look at his players instead. There were four of them not performing the way they played in their past games,” said Tiukinhoy.

After Adamson’s loss, it figured in a three-way logjam with UC and San Sebastian College with identical 2-1 records forcing officials to refer to the scorebooks and use the Fiba quotient system, to determine the top two teams that will advance.

The SSC Baycats came up with the superior quotient with a 1.06.

The Webmasters salvaged the second spot with 1.013, while Adamson fell short with 0.956.

Tiukinhoy said whatever the outcome of the said protest, UC is already assured of a slot joining early qualifiers University of the Visayas and the University of San Carlos.

COSTLY LOSS
Falcons’ setback to SSC-R denies them of PCCL round-of-16 seat
By Jonas Panerio
Cebu Daily News
First Posted 08:34:00 11/10/2009

The Adamson University Falcons saw their bid for a slot in the Sweet 16 stage of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) go up in smoke after they were denied entry by the San Sebastian College-Recoletos Cavite Baycats, which beat them, 88-78, in the final day of the Cebu interzonal qualifying games late Sunday night at the Cebu Coliseum.

The win by the two-time NAASCU champions pegged a three-way logjam in the standings as the Falcons, the Baycats and the University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters were all tied with similar 2-1 (win-loss) records. The development forced organizers to use the quotient system which meant that the points scored by the three teams would be divided by their points against.

When the dust cleared, it was San Sebastian that came out with the highest quotient with a 1.06. UC came in second with a 1.013 while Adamson, which came into Sunday's game with a clean 2-0 record, finished third with a 0.956.

The Baycats and the Webmasters thus formally booked their slots in the round-of-16 with UC joining Cesafi squads University of the Visayas (UV) and the University of San Carlos (USC). The other early qualifiers are the Ateneo Blue Eagles (UAAP champion), San Sebastian College-Recoletos Golden Stags (NCAA champion), UE Red Warriors, FEU Tamaraws, UST Growling Tigers, San Beda Red Lions, JRU Heavy Bombers and Letran Knights.

Arellano University are also in the national finals after their dominant showing in the Bacolod zonal games.

The Sweet 16 starts off in Nov. 23 at the Ynares Center in Pasig City.

PCCL Sweet 16 games in Cebu scrapped
(The Freeman) Updated November 19, 2009 12:00 AM

CEBU, Philippines - Cebuano basketball fans will miss the opportunity of witnessing two classic games at the Cebu Coliseum on November 30 as the organizers of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) scrapped the Sweet 16 matches involving the host teams.

Earlier this month, the PCCL vowed to bring two Sweet 16 matches here but yesterday, Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) commissioner Felix O. Tiukinhoy, Jr. announced that it has been cancelled.

Instead, the battle involving the top two CESAFI finishers will be played at the San Juan gym in Metro Manila on November 28, with the nine-time champion University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers taking on the Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT) Chirping Cardinas and the University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters going up against the University of the East (UE) Red Warriors.

The third Cebu entry, the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors, will travel to Ormoc City on November 30 to square off against the reigning NCAA champion San Sebastian College (SSC) Stags of coach Ato Agustin. (GGM) (FREEMAN NEWS)

Cebu loses advantage
Wednesday, November 18, 2009
By Marian C. Baring

CEBU teams University of the Visayas and University of Cebu have lost an all-important home-court edge in the Sweet 16 round of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League because of a disagreement in scheduling between Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy and PCCL head Joe Lipa.

This will be a huge blow for the Cebuanos since the Sweet 16 round follows the knockout format.

Tiukinhoy said that they originally agreed on having the Cebu stop on Nov. 30 with UC taking on De La Salle University and UV facing Mapua Institute of Technology.

However, last Monday, Lipa informed Tiukinhoy that it will be moved to Nov. 28. But the new schedule has created a conflict.

“We have booked the Cebu Coliseum for the 30th and it is not available on the 28th. He (Lipa) said the Manila teams have already committed to the Nov. 28 schedule and we can’t do anything about it anymore so we decided to cancel it and Lipa decided to just move the games to Manila,” said Tiukinhoy.

Tiukinhoy said they could not risk organizing a game at a smaller venue after losing money in the Cebu zonals eary this month.

“During the zonals, we had to spend for the venue and the board and lodging of the teams but not a lot of people came to watch because the Under-16 event was held here at the same time,” said Tiukinhoy.

Tiukinhoy added they wanted to bring the first games of UV and UC to Cebu to give the teams the homecourt edge—something they will not enjoy if they’d play in Manila.

Because of this, UV and UC need to double their preparation so as not to get axed early in the tournament.

Today, UV will battle San Beda College in an exhibition match at 5 p.m. at the University of San Carlos gym and UV head coach Elmer Boy Cabahug wants the team to take the match seriously.

“This will be a very good tune-up match before we leave for the PCCL. This will help us gauge our preparedness. There is also a possibility of meeting San Beda again in the PCCL, so, at least, we will already have an idea of their style,” said Cabahug.

Cabahug added they have been practicing non-stop in preparation for the PCCL as they target no less than the title, something that has evaded Cesafi’s nine-time champion for years.

“We want to improve our first runner up finish. Hopefully, it’s this year,” said Cabahug.

MANILA, Philippines - San Beda and Far Eastern U open their title quests as the Sweet 16 Finals of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League begins today at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Coming off disappointing losses in their respective leagues, both squads are favored to enter the tournament’s next stage against unheralded opponents.

The Tamaraws battle NCAA fifth-placer and wild card entrant Arellano University in the curtain raiser at 2 p.m. while the Red Lions take on another wild card team in NAASCU titlist San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite at 4 p.m.

Ranked among the favorites before the start of the UAAP this season, FEU went cold during the latter portion of the tournament before losing to University of the East in the Final Four at the height of the controversy surrounding its star guard Mark Barroca.

San Beda was picked to win its fourth consecutive NCAA title but suffered an embarrassing sweep at the hands of San Sebastian in the finals.

The Chiefs and Baycats reached the tournament’s main phase by winning their respective Visayas-Mindanao zonal qualifiers.

Arellano swept the Bacolod leg while San Sebastian-Cavite upset Adamson on the final day in Cebu to reach the Sweet 16.

The Baycats of coach Egay Macaraya defeated University of Manila to capture their second NAASCU title behind league MVP Jhun Gracilla and 2008 MVP and PBL standout Kris Lucernas.

The Tamaraws are in the bottom half of the draw and will likely face the likes of defending champion La Salle, UAAP runner-up University of the East and NCAA champion San Sebastian on their way to the final.

A win over Arellano would forge a quarterfinal showdown with either UE or University of Cebu.

The Lions, on the other hand, will have to get past UAAP titlist Ateneo, Jose Rizal and CESAFI king University of Visayas to make it to the finals.

Should they hurdle their opening assignment, the Lions would face either the UV Lancers or the Mapua Cardinals in the quarterfinals.

The first round matches of the Sweet 16 Finals, sponsored by PLDT and Smart, will also be played at The Arena and at the Ormoc Dome in Ormoc City.

2 matches fire off PCCL ‘Sweet 16’ cage finals

MANILA, Philippines—San Beda and Far Eastern University start their quest against dangerous foes in the “Sweet 16” of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League on Monday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The Lions, looking to erase the stigma of their NCAA title loss to San Sebastian College, duel the San Sebastian-Cavite Baycats at 4 p.m.

With national developmental pool standouts JR Cawaling and Aldrech Ramos bannering their bid, the Tamaraws, who claimed an outright berth in the tournament by landing third in the UAAP, are heavy favorites over the Arellano Chiefs in the 2 p.m. opener.

The Chiefs will be bannered by Adrian Celada and Gio Ciriacruz, a member of the mythical five in the NCAA where they finished fifth.

Arellano survived a tough zonal tournament in Bacolod City, where the Chiefs beat University of San Carlos and Visayas powerhouse West Negros U early this month.

The back-to-back Naascu champion stunned UAAP fifth placer Adamson University in the Cebu zonal to clinch a slot in the national finals.

The winner of the FEU-Arellano clash will play either University of the East or University of Cebu in the quarterfinals.

The survivor of the San Beda-SSC match will meet the winner of the Mapua-University of the Visayas duel in the next round of the tournament sponsored by PLDT and Smart Communications.

Tams, Lions start bids in Champions League

San Beda and Far Eastern University start their bids to win the national championship as the Sweet 16 Finals of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League begins Monday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

Coming off disappointing losses in their respective leagues, both squads are favored to enter the tournament's next stage against unheralded opponents.

The Tamaraws battle NCAA fifth-placer and wild card entrant Arellano University in the curtain raiser at 2 p.m. while the Red Lions take on another wild card team in NAASCU titlist San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite at 4 p.m.

Ranked among the favorites before the start of the UAAP this season, FEU went cold during the latter portion of the tournament before suffering an upset loss to University of the East in the Final Four at the height of the controversy surrounding its star guard Mark Barroca.

On the other hand, San Beda was picked to win its fourth consecutive NCAA title but suffered an embarrassing sweep at the hands of San Sebastian in the finals.

The Chiefs and Baycats reached the tournament's main phase by virtue of winning their respective Visayas-Mindanao zonal qualifiers.

Arellano topped the Bacolod leg by sweeping the three-day event while San Sebastian-Cavite needed to score an upset victory over Adamson on the final day of the Cebu tilt to reach the Sweet 16.

The Baycats of coach Egay Macaraya defeated University of Manila to capture their second NAASCU title behind league MVP Jhun Gracilla and 2008 MVP and PBL standout Kris Lucernas.

The Tamaraws are in the bottom half of the draw and would likely face the likes of defending champion La Salle University, UAAP runner-up University of the East and NCAA champion San Sebastian in their bid to reach the final.

A win over Arellano would forge a quarterfinal showdown with either UE or University of Cebu.

The Lions, on the other hand, will have to get past UAAP titlist Ateneo de Manila, Jose Rizal and CESAFI king University of Visayas to make it into the finals.

Should they hurdle their opening assignment, the Lions would either face the UV Lancers or the Mapua Cardinals in the quarterfinals.

The first round matches of the Sweet 16 Finals, sponsored by PLDT and Smart, will also be played at The Arena in San Juan and at the Ormoc Dome in Ormoc City.

PCCL Sweet 16: FEU escapes Arellano; San Beda wins
By CLYDE MARIANO
November 23, 2009, 7:43pm

Games on Wednesday (Ynares Sports Center)
2 p.m. — Letran vs La Salle
4 p.m. — Ateneo vs Lyceum

Far Eastern University groped for form against Arellano University before escaping with a 69-59 win on Monday at the start of the Sweet 16 Finals of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig City.

In the other game, San Beda College held San Sebastian College-Cavite to just 14 points in the first half on the way to a 91-50 victory.

The win pushed the Lions to the quarterfinals against either University of Visayas or Mapua.

The Tamaraws, who placed third in the UAAP, raced to a 21-7 lead only to watch the Chiefs rally to within, 32-33, early in the third quarter.

But the Tamaraws hung tough in the closing stages to thwart the Chiefs’ uprising and advance to the quarterfinal round where it will face either University of the East or Cebu-based University of the Visayas.

All but two of 10 players used by Capacio scored with RR Garcia topscoring with 17 points. Aldrich Ramos added 15 and Hippovite Nuonduo 10.

Garcia scored back-to-back treys to fuel a 10-0 run that gave the Tamaraws a 45-34 lead.

But the Chiefs, with Giorgio Ciriacruz, Ed Rivera and Allen Virtudaso on the firing end, rallied to trim the deficit to 45-49.

The 6-3 Ciriacruz, grandson of the late former national player Jacinto “Jumping Jack” Ciriacruz, paced Arellano with 17 points and 10 rebounds.

The tournament resumes on Wednesday with defending champion La Salle taking on Letran and UAAP champion Ateneo battling Lyceum.

First Game:
FEU 69 — Garcia 17, Ramos 15, Nuondou 10, Sanga 8, Cervantes 8, Exicimino 4, Knuttel 4, Cawaling 3, Vinluan 0, Guerrero 0.
ARELLANO 59 — Ciriacruz 17, Tayogtong 11, Apostol 9, Anquilo 7, Rivera 6, Celada 6, Virtudaso 3, Agustin 0.
Quarters: 21-9, 33-29, 52-45, 69-59.

Second Game:
SBC 91 — Gamalinda 18, Pascual 14, Dela Rosa 11, Lanete 11, Villanueva 8, Soliman 7, Solera 6, Caram 6, Daniel 5, Lim 3, Tecson 2.
SSC-CAVITE 50 — Filio 12, Alcasabas 8, Pasapun 5, Ciracilla 4, Lacernas 3, Antipuesto 2, Basa 2, Galindo 2, Acain 2, Reyes 2, Abagan 2, Dela Cruz 2, Pono 2, Escobal 2.
Quarters: 19-6, 46-14, 69-28, 91-50.

Tams, Red Lions advance to Elite Eight

MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern U, a team looking to redeem itself from a sorry foldup in the closing stages of the recent UAAP tourney, returned to action with a flourish yesterday, whipping Arellano U, 69-59, at the start of the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League Sweet 16 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Ryan Roose Garcia, FEU’s new take-charge guy on the exit of Mark Barroca, fired three triples and finished with 17 points, spearheading the Tams charge on the way to an Elite Eight entry in the tourney gathering the cream of varsity teams in the country.

Only 11 Tamaraws suited up for action but all responded to the challenge, taking the full measure of the fierce-fighting Arellano side as they advanced to the next round versus the winner of the University of the East-University of Cebu showdown Saturday at The Arena in San Juan.

“I’m happy the guys played a disciplined game. That’s the key against this Arellano team showing they can’t be taken for granted,” said FEU coach Glen Capacio.

“Now a possible rematch with UE or a showdown with the Cebuanos is up ahead. We have a job cut out for us against either of these two teams. We have to be ready,” Capacio said.

Capacio and his Tams have already matched their finish in this annual event last year. They topped Jose Rizal in the Sweet 16 before bowing to Letran in the Final Eight in the 2008 edition of this elite tourney offering P500,000 to the winner.

The Tams displayed a game that spoke well of their capability to contend for the 2009 crown, erecting a 14-point spread right in the opening period and holding on to foil the Chiefs’ upset bid.

San Beda, another team seeking redemption after being denied of a “four-peat” in the NCAA, got off to a flying start, blasting NAASCU champion San Sebastian-Cavite, 91-50, in the other game.

Bambam Gamalinda, playing his final season with SBC, logged 18 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, leading the Lions to their lopsided win over the Baycats.

The Lions, though short-handed minus some injured players, proved too much for the Baycats, having easy time marching to the second round of the event sponsored by PLDT, Smart, ABS-CBN, The Philippine STAR and Molten.

MANILA, Philippines - Hardly showing any rust, Far Eastern University and San Beda flashed their old winning ways Monday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Playing their first game since losing to University of the East in the UAAP Final Four more than a month ago, the Tamaraws looked sharp in a 69-59 trouncing of Arellano University.

The Lions, one month removed from their NCAA finals defeat to the San Sebastian Stags, turned their “Sweet 16” showdown with Naascu champion San Sebastian-Cavite into a virtual workout with a 91-50 victory.

FEU will clash with the winner between University of the East and University of Cebu, while San Beda awaits the survivor of the Mapua-University of Visayas showdown in the next round of this tournament backed by Smart and PLDT.

The Tamaraws raced to 14-point leads in the first half, but needed a fiery finish to hold off the Chiefs, who moved within four points, 45-49, late in the third period.

“We relaxed after we took a double-digit lead,” said FEU coach Glenn Capacio.

Sanga’s last triple put the Tamaraws firmly in control, 62-48, with seven minutes left.

The Lions overwhelmed the Baycats with their air-tight defense, holding their rivals to 17-of-80 shooting for the entire game.

The scores:

First Game
FEU 69—Garcia 17, Ramos 15, Noundou 10, Sanga 8, Cervantes 8, Cervantes 8, Exciminiano 4, Knuttel 4, Cawaling 3, Guerrero 0, Vinluan 0.

ARELLANO 59—G. Ciriacruz 17, Tayongtong 11, Apostol 9, Anquilo 7, Rivera 6, Celada 6, Virtudazo 3, Agustin 0, Reducto 0.
Quarters: 21-9, 33-29, 52-45, 69-59

Second Game
SAN BEDA 91—Gamalinda 18, Pascual 14, Dela Rosa 11, Lanete 11, Villanueva 8, Soliman 7, Solera 6, Caram 6, Daniel 5, Lim 3, Tecson 2.

SAN SEBASTIAN CAVITE 50—Filio 12, Alcasabas 8, Pasagui 5, Gracilla 4, Lucernas 3, Antipuesto 2, Basa 2, Callado 2, Acain 2, Atangan 2, Dela Cruz 2, Pono 2, Escobal 2.
Quarters: 19-6, 46-14, 67-28, 91-50

Pagisipan naman sana ng mabuti ng mga kinauukulan itong PCCL. Pinadaan pa pala sa Zonal ang San Sebastian Cavite samantalang champion sila ng NAASCU, at back-to-back pa 'yon. Ang St Francis of Assisi na champion ng UCLAA dinaan din sa Zonal sa Bicol at nalaglag sa Lasalle. Ang Lyceum na champion ng first time na liga na ISAA ay pasok ng walang hirap sa Sweet 16, at sa pagkakaalam ko pangalawang taon ng walang tunay na liga ang Lyceum. Napakalakas naman ng Lyceum kina Rey Gamboa at Joe Lipa. Ano 'yon...?

sa pagkaka-alam ko laging dumadaan sa wildcard at inter-zonal ang Lyceum at pinapalad naman makapasok sa sweet 16 and last year nga umabot pa sila top eight. regular kasing nagpa-participate sa Nike Summer League ang Lyceum at medyo maganda naman ang pinapakita nila kaya nasasama sila sa mga wildcard at inter-zonal ng PCCL.
now medyo maganda pagpasok nila coz champion sila sa ISAA na nagkataon sanctioned ng SBP so alam nyo na... hehehe... pagbigyan mo na Lyceum kaibigan medyo need nila ng exposure para sa application nila ulit sa next year NCAA, sila ata ang papalit sa puwesto ng AUF bilang another guest team.

Cebu teams gear up for PCCL stint
Monday, November 23, 2009

THE Cebu teams are ready to plunge into action in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League.

Nine-time Cebu Schools Athtelic Foundation Inc. champion Universtiy of the Visayas, which finished second to Ateneo de Manila University two years ago, is hoping it can do better this time around.

Coach Boy Cabahug’s Green Lancers will be facing the Mapua Cardinals this Nov. 28 in the first round.

“This is the first time that we will face Mapua but I think we have a good chance to win,” Cabahug told Sun.Star Superbalita.

Cabahug is worried about the airconditioning of San Juan Arena, since his players are not used to playing in a cold venue.

The same issue also worries coach Rhoel Gomez of the University of Cebu, which finished second to UV in the Cesafi.

“Kuyawan ko basi’g dili maka-adjust ang atong players sa katugnaw,” said Gomez, whose team will be facing the University of the East also on Nov. 28.

However, Gomez is confident that his wards, led by the 6’10” Junmar Fajardo, can put up a good fight.

The third Cebu team, the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors, are keeping their target modest since they will be facing NCAA champion San Sebastian College-Recoletos Stags on Nov. 30. (ESL of Superbalita)

Correct. ang teams lang na outright pumasok sa sweet 16 ay ang top four teams ng NCAA and UAAP plus ang champion sa CESAFI.. yung iba dumaan lahat yan sa zonals.. punta ka sir Wang-Bu sa website ng PCCL sa www.collegiatechampionsleague.net dun makikita kung paano nakarating sa sweet 16 ang ibang teams..halos lahat sila champions except yung galing sa elite na NCAA and UAAP..

If these are the most important college games of the year (as the promoters would like us to believe), how come the games aren't even televised? No TV, no importance. E kung sa UAAP, NU vs. UP natetelevise. E dito, puro champions kuno. But walang TV coverage.

Conclusion: exhibition post-season league lang talaga.

Just a few thoughts while watching the game:

1. Franz Pumaren played his last NCAA game in 1980 against Letran. Barring a coaching comeback, he coached his last La Salle game versus Letran also.
2. Franz Pumaren is the only La Salle player in 1980 who was still active and played in La Salle’s inaugural UAAP season in 1986.
3. Like wise, Ateneo’s Ogie Narvasa (and some of his teammates who I can’t recall - please inform if you know) also played for both the NCAA and the UAAP for the same university.
4. Bilib naman ako kung kilala niyo kung sino ang naglaro sa UP in both the NCAA and UAAP in the 1930s
5. I know there are also other players who played both in the NCAA and UAAP but not for one university exclusively. Right now, it is only Jenkins Mesina of UP and SBC who is on my mind. Any others? Senior’s competition only. Eric Salamat’s and Paul Lee’s stint as junior players in the NCAA and as senior players in the UAAP do not count.
6. Tinext ako ng utol ko. Sagot niya si Acer Bas at Arnold espino ng MIT at UST. Baka may maidadagdag pa kayo?
7. Kanino kaya kampi si Lolo Freddie, sa apo kaya o sa alma mater?

Ang Lyceum na champion ng first time na liga na ISAA ay pasok ng walang hirap sa Sweet 16, at sa pagkakaalam ko pangalawang taon ng walang tunay na liga ang Lyceum. Napakalakas naman ng Lyceum kina Rey Gamboa at Joe Lipa. Ano 'yon...?


Sir Wang-Bu, dumaan po sa zonal ang Lyceum of the Philippines-Pirates. They played in North/Central Luzon -MM Zonals (A) that includes UM Hawks, UC Dragons, Lyceum of Subic Bay Sharks

hindi sana makapasok ang lyceum pirates dahil tinalo sila nang UM hawks. kaso lang may 2 ineligible players ang UM kaya naforfeit yung panalo nila. dahil dun ang lyceum na tinalo nila sa zonal finals ang nakapasok.

UC vs. UE: It'd be interesting to see how UC's 6'9" player, Junemar Fajardo will play against UE's frontline (Elmer Espiritu, Pari Llagas). Junemar has never really been tested consistently against the top big men of the NCAA and UAAP in a serious competition.

He did well against Letran's frontline in last year's PCCL qualifier (Daa, Foronda), but this will be his first real test against a top UAAP team.

Warriors barge into PCCL quarterfinals
By CLYDE MARIANO

University of the East threw the full weight of its talented crew against University of Cebu on Saturday and the Warriors hammered out a 105-86 rout to advance to quarterfinals in the Sweet 16 of the Philippine Champions League at The Arena in San Juan City.

The Warriors, runner-up to UAAP champion Ateneo, came through with a well-balanced offensive to oust the Cebuanos and join Far Eastern University, Letran, Ateneo and San Beda in the next round.

Hardly feeling the absence of regulars Rudy Lingganay, Toto Bandayen, and Lucas Tagarda, the Warriors dictated the tempo of the game right from the start towin pulling away.

Lingganay and Bandayen are currently playing for the Kuala Lumpur Dragons in the ASEAN Basketball League. Tagarda is recuperating from ACL injury he suffered in the recent UAAP tournament.

Spitfire Paul Lee anchored the Warriors with a triple-double performance of 31 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, He also had three steals in 40 minutes of action.

Pari Llagas added 17 points and seven rebounds, Elmer Espiritu had 14 markers and Paul Zamar contributed 10 points for UE, which finished with a 30 of 51 clip from the field, collared 50 rebounds and issued 29 assists.

Llagas also defended well against June Fajardo limiting the 6-9 behemoth to only three points in the third period. Fajardo finished with 24 points.

UE posted its biggest lead of 23 points at 81-58, on Avila’s charities off Barnett Rogado.

The scores:
UE 105 - Lee 31, Llagas 17, Espiritu 14, Zamar 10, Acuña 9, Reyes 6, Flores 5, Acibar 4, Ayala 3, Sumido 2, Noble 2, Duran 2.
UC 86 - Rogado 25, Fajardo 24, Julianne 13, Quilangtang 6, Tano 5, Abella 4, Luceno 4, Gomez 3, Cayanong 2, Mohammad 0, Bernil 0.
Quarters: 28-23, 53-43, 83-61, 105-86.

Looks like Fajardo had decent numbers, but his team got blown out by 19 points, and Llagas and Espirtu had pretty good numbers against him, too. He could be pretty decent Center somewhere down the line, but not necessarily a dominant one in the PBL/PBA level.

It looks like Slaughter has improved, learning to use his height against smaller opponents. I guess all that being banged around by the better big men at Smart Gilas is starting to bear fruit.

Despite the improvement, though, I think he still has a long way to go. Mapua isn't exactly known as having a solid frontline.

Crafty Cardinals Overcome Slaughter, UV

by Anton Roxas

IN a game filled with unfamiliarity between two protagonists, one team found a way to win.

The Mapúa Institute of Technology Cardinals, who took the longer road to get to the Sweet 16, prevailed against the reigning CESAFI champions, the University of Visayas Green Lancers 76-73 last November 28, 2009 at The Arena in San Juan City.

The UV Lancers, the only non-UAAP or NCAA team that automatically qualified to the 2009 Philippine Collegiate Champions League Sweet 16, failed to make it past the first knockout game of the tournament for the second straight year. However, the victory was no walk in the park for Mapúa as the game saw four deadlocks and 14 lead changes.

“Actually, wala kaming scouting report sa UV eh. Kaya ang hirap. Ang alam lang namin si Slaughter sa inside. So, we adjusted pag-receive ng bola sa post. Collapse lang kami and we adjusted our defense to full-court pressure para magamit namin yung strength namin, yung defense,” said Mapúa head coach Chito Victolero.

CESAFI co-MVP and Mythical Five member Greg Slaughter looked to dominate early on as his teammates threw him the ball in their very first possession. Slaughter caught it with good post position, turned and dumped the ball inside the basket for the first two points of the game. A couple of plays later, Slaughter broke free from his defender using a nifty spin move without the ball. He then received a nice pass deep in the paint and emphatically slammed the ball through the hoop with both his hands. UV was off to a strong start leading by nine at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Mapúa utilized a full-court press defense to counter the size of UV and captured their first lead of the game at 29-28 with 1:22 remaining in the first half. Not to be outdone, the Green Lancers came out of halftime energized and started the third quarter with an 8-0 run. But, Allan Mangahas knocked down two straight three point shots to regain the lead for Mapúa, 37-36. Tempers flared a little bit as a double foul was called at the 3:50 mark of the third quarter on Paul Cinco and Slaughter as the two players got their arms entangled. Another double foul was called with 46.7 seconds remaining the same quarter, this time on Ritchum Dennison and Rodel Ranises.

With the game tied at 60, UV swingman Emman Calo fired a three point shot from the top of the arc that went inside the ring, out to the board, and straight through the net. Calo would score eight more points after that basket for UV. The game was tied again at 71 when Erwin Cornejo somehow found himself with the ball close to the basket. The veteran used the glass and scored right in front of the 6’11” Slaughter to put the cardinals up for good, 73-71.

Mapúa has now won nine straight games since they defeated the Perpetual Help Altas in the second Round of the 85th Season of the NCAA. That winning streak will be on the line next week as they face the San Beda College Red Lions in the Elite Eight on December 2, 2009.

The scores:

Mapúa 76 – Mangahas 22, Stevens 14, Raneses 12, Guillermo 10, Cornejo 6, Paraala 5, Sarangay 5, Cinco 2, Pascual 0, Acosta 0.

UV 73 – Slaughter 22, Calo 13, Lao 8, Cincoflores 8, Dennison 6, Diputado 6, Manigque 6, Mercader 4, Cabahug 0.

Quarter scores: 10-19, 31-28, 45-52, 76-73.

Fajardo had his numbers. Those were expected. So were the numbers of Rogado. For UC, there's just no organization on the floor especially when Juliane left for his first rest of the game. Everything was a mess after that. No movement, everyone just standing there doing nothing. The Webmasters were frustrated they can't get the ball down low to their big man and while they had some good looks, I dont think the percentages were good. On rebounds, they didn't box out. Sure Junmar is tall but he can't outrebound 5 guys on his own. Fajardo also looked tired compared to Slaughter who was more upbeat and in the groove.

As for UV, it was that freak 4-point play that did them in. Officiating was a little spotty but not to the extent that it changed the color of the game. They had a chance to win it. They actually played a lot better than last year against UE when their guards were throwing bricks while Greg had position down low. This time, Greg gets his position and the ball down low with much success complimented by the stellar backcourt play of Emman Calo and the hardwork of Edrian Lao. Then again Pascual and Sarangay are no Llagas and Espiritu.

sagot ni estor_boot dito, 10 PM daw, delayed telecast. nakanampu..? >:(

exchanging text messages with joescoundrel, we both agree that ABS-CBN's treatment of the PCCL sucks. last year's coverage by solar was much better. even the linalangaw games with 3 people in the stands in the run-down makati coliseum got live (or delayed but only by an hour or two -- certainly not the way ABS-CBN is doing it now) telecasts.

methinks the difference is brought about by one group's commitment to the sport, and the other group's commitment to their bottomline -- not that that's bad per se but have you guys seen ABS-CBN's annual report? with long-term debt eating up close to 30% of assets, i wouldn't put my money in there even if you paid me!

solar is in no better a position as, per joe's input, they put up more money upfront -- about half a billion -- to land the broadcasting rights to the PBA. sales from advertising airtime, however, haven't panned out as much as they had hoped for. growing pains, though. and being smaller and leaner, solar can make the adjustments more easily than a behemoth like ABS-CBN.

in the long run, you wanna do biz with someone who keeps his or her word. at least, solar showed in the past -- and even today with mercy broadcasts like the milo's BEST games -- that its commitment to the game is top-most, even if it has to pay an arm and a leg to do it.

as for ABS-CBN? well, you decide.

The problem with ABS is that it is too preoccupied with other things, like entertainment and its stars. Other than the UAAP, its other sports coverages don't really get much attention unlike Solar.

If ABS won the PBA bid, the network would have imposed plenty of conditions unfavorable to the PBA, which was why the pro league went to Solar.

Even ABS's other businesses are not doing well. Maxim Magazine has closed down and its other magazines are now under a new management.

And ABS-CBN boasts of having 2 channels. No excuse talaga iyong they want to cover the World Ten-Ball Championship. They committed to showing the PCCL games live, so they have to show it live and not give the lame and childish excuse that "last year's pccl was also not televised live." This is unacceptable.

According to Wikipedia (I don't know if this is accurate), there are 14 collegiate leagues in the country (not including the women's league). 14 teams is already a big group, that is enough to form an all tournament of champions.

Somehow, a team will breakthrough and this is what is happening now anyway. They are just prolonging the league.

Let's say one of the non-champions in this league gets to win it all? What does the PCCL achieve with that? Look at the champions of the PCCL so far.

2002 - UE - (UAAP Champion: Ateneo)
2003 - FEU - (UAAP Champion: FEU)
2004 - FEU - (UAAP Champion: DLSU)
2005 - Not Held
2006 - UE - (UAAP Champion: UST)
2007 - Ateneo - (UAAP Champion: DLSU)
2008 - DLSU - (UAAP Champion: Ateneo)

It was only in 2003 that the PCCL produced a champion which was a champion in their home league (FEU)! Imagine that most of the time, the winner of the champion's league is not a champion of any of the participating leagues!

As my friend said, it just a name or a title.

Its like the Lakers are the WORLD CHAMPIONS after winning the NBA title.

Now, where are the teams from Angola in the NBA?

Sorry, totally unsimilar to PCCL. ;D

^true Dark Knight but unlike the NBA, the PCCL is quite clear in its objective... that is to crown a 'national champion'. Now the national champion should be a champion in a regional tournament first right?

looked like Baste ran out of gas this time


I don't think so. RR just burned them single-handedly in OT.


or perhaps they ran out of lucky breaks like the ones they had against USC

Why can't we just have the champions participating in this league? No 2nd, 3rd or 4th placers, no wildcards. Just get the champions and maybe this league will become more prestigious. A real champion's league!

According to Wikipedia (I don't know if this is accurate), there are 14 collegiate leagues in the country (not including the women's league). 14 teams is already a big group, that is enough to form an all tournament of champions.


that is a good idea "IF" all 14 collegiate leagues' competitiveness is at par to the level of NCAA and UAAP.


Somehow, a team will breakthrough and this is what is happening now anyway. They are just prolonging the league.

Let's say one of the non-champions in this league gets to win it all? What does the PCCL achieve with that? Look at the champions of the PCCL so far.

2002 - UE - (UAAP Champion: Ateneo)
2003 - FEU - (UAAP Champion: FEU)
2004 - FEU - (UAAP Champion: DLSU)
2005 - Not Held
2006 - UE - (UAAP Champion: UST)
2007 - Ateneo - (UAAP Champion: DLSU)
2008 - DLSU - (UAAP Champion: Ateneo)

It was only in 2003 that the PCCL produced a champion which was a champion in their home league (FEU)! Imagine that most of the time, the winner of the champion's league is not a champion of any of the participating leagues!




This might also indicate the truly high level of basketball played in the UAAP and NCAA. I would think that whichever team makes the UAAP and NCAA Finals play such a high level of basketball that both finalists from the two leagues deserve to be in the PCCL.

Covering the lesser-known tournaments such as UCAA, NAASCU and UCLAA, I do not think the same can be said for these leagues. Certainly the last two years have been very unkind to San Sebastian Cavite, and they are the back-to-back NAASCU champions. Speaking of NAASCU, I no longer recall if the 2006 (?) AMA championship team of Chito Jaime and Rommel Galvez was invited to the PCCL that year.

I no longer recall if EAC, during their own championship reign of just a few years ago, when they still had Nino Songco and/or Ronjay Buenafe, were ever in the PCCL or how they did. That EAC team certainly would have been a pretty good match for any of the UAAP and NCAA teams of that period.

On another front, Rey Gamboa said that one of the reasons they have the PCCL is to encourage homegrown talents to stay home, as it were, and prevent these top players from being pirated by the UAAP and NCAA schools. That will never happen for as long as the UAAP and NCAA are perceived as the real superstar leagues.

This 2009 edition of the PCCL is so low-key even the Finals are held at the smaller Ynares Sports Center instead of the prestige venue known as Araneta Coliseum. TV coverage is not quite what it was compared to previous years, even though it is the UAAP and NCAA coverage team handling the PCCL. Contrast that with the way ABS CBN Sports has been covering the UAAP and NCAA over the last few years and you know immediately who the superstar leagues are.

As for these Finals, fancy that, Ateneo versus FEU, who'da thunk it...?

Araneta today is booked for the PBA. Arena in San Juan would have been a better venue but the UAAP volleyball is already scheduled there.
