Africans Emmanuel Mbe and John Nlepe-Nlepe are now eligible for the UAAP, are they enough of a talent upgrade to finally return the Bulldogs to the Final 4?

Or will NU remain NU...?

Who are the returning veterans for NU?

Are there any new recruits from the local talent pool?

Is there any information on new coach Eric Gonzalez? Is he really just keeping the seat warm for Eric Altamirano?

NU's much-talked about recruitment frenzy netted them a few big names out of the high school class of 2010. Are these boys ready to contribute immediately, or are they going to be in the (no pun intended) doghouse in their rookie years?

UAAP FAN CODE OF CONDUCT

Adopted by the UAAP Board July 2010

Rationale:
Historically, sport was determined to be the more positive way of settling disputes
between warring nation states. Why? Because rules were instigated to effect a measure
of control on the athletes and the conduct of the activity. Next, the officials saw to it that
the rules were applied to all and last, the fans could cheer for their “heroes” who brought
them honor and glory. This illustrates the connection between these three participants
involved in a sport event which has thus remained to the present.
As the official organizing body of the UAAP, the Board of Directors observed the
escalating problem of violence during UAAP games, in particular, those involving
players and fans. With the overall objective of creating a safe, comfortable and enjoyable
experience for all supporters/participants of UAAP games/events, the UAAP Board of
Directors prepared this Fan Code of Conduct as a guide to expected behaviors. These are
the following:
1. Athletes, coaches and sport officials will respect and appreciate each and every fan.
2. Fans will be treated in a consistent, professional and courteous manner by all UAAP/
sport facility personnel.
3. Fans will sit only in their ticketed seats and show their tickets when requested.
4. Fans will enjoy the UAAP sport event free from disruptive behavior, including foul or
abusive language or obscene gestures (i.e. fighting, taunting, or engaging in any action
that may harm, endanger, threaten, or bring discomfort to anyone in the stadium). Any
fan engaging in such will be warned by the UAAP/sport facility personnel. A repetition
of said behavior will subject the fan to ejection from the facility.
5. Fans carrying signs or wearing clothing with obscene, deregatory or indecent messages
will be requested to discard said sign/wear the shirt inside out.
6. Fans observed to be under the influence of a prohibitive substance (i.e. alcoholic
beverage, dangerous drug, etc) may need intervention and must be handled in a prompt
and safe manner by the UAAP/sport facility security/personnel.
7. Fans will not engage in fighting or throwing objects. Those who engage in any of these
actions will immediately be ejected from the game/venue.
8. Fans will smoke in designated smoking areas only.
9. Fans will comply with requests from sport facility personnel regarding facility
operations and emergency response procedures.
10. Fans in possession of any item considered dangerous by the UAAP/sport facility
personnel will be requested to turn over said item which may be retrieved after the event.
Fans may report any inappropriate behavior to the sport facility personnel at 5264553 and
please indicate contact number of UAAP host school .

FEU Tams nip Eagles; Falcons trip Bulldogs

By Jasmine W. Payo

MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University wasted no time backing up its tag as tournament favorite by downing back-to-back champion Ateneo de Manila University right on its first assignment Sunday.

The Tamaraws dealt the Blue Eagles their first opening-game loss in five years, 72-69, to join the early leaders in the 73rd UAAP men’s basketball competition at the jampacked Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

“We’re lucky that we won this game even with 21 turnovers [against Ateneo’s 11],” said FEU coach Glenn Capacio. “We were up against the champion team and I’m just happy that our team didn’t fold up in the endgame.”

RR Garcia, the second-year guard whom Capacio described as “super,” matched his career-high 25 points, hitting the key baskets when the game was on the line.

Garcia completed a key three-point play that pushed the Tamaraws ahead, 70-67, with 1:19 minutes remaining, and then added a free throw for 71-69, with 12 seconds left, after a jumper by Ateneo’s Ryan Buenafe trimmed the gap, 70-69.

Ateneo had a chance to tie the game, but Nico Salva missed an undergoal attempt in the dwindling seconds.

Adamson University joined the early winners with a 60-54 triumph over National University in the first game.

The Falcons’ veteran forwards stepped up as Eric Camson posted a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Janus Lozada and Jan Colina shot 11 markers each.

“We didn’t really shoot the basket well from the outside,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black. “We played hard; it’s just that we also played against a very good team.”

The last time Ateneo dropped an opening game was against fierce rival De La Salle University, 60-78, on July 10, 2005.

It was also the first time FEU prevailed over Ateneo in two years since July 31, 2008, when the Tamaraws took a 72-66 decision.

Adamson also posted its first opening-day victory in five years since the Falcons downed the Bulldogs, 116-103, on July 10, 2005.

“We’ve been running our offense for two years, so I told them there’s no way that [the veterans] would still struggle,” said coach Leo Austria of his Falcons.

La Salle and University of Santo Tomas pulled off upsets against separate opponents last Saturday.

Both Adamson and NU unveiled their African recruits, but it was the Bulldogs’ Emmanuel Mbe who had a stronger debut.

Mbe, a 6-foot-7 center from Cameroon, had eight points, 11 rebounds and a pair of blocks.

In women’s action, last year’s MVP Amby Almazan shot 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead defending champion Adamson to an 84-53 rout of La Salle at the FilOil-Flying V Arena in San Juan City.

The Lady Bulldogs clobbered the University of the Philippines Lady Maroons, 69-56.

FEU coasted to a 72-55 win over UST while Ateneo drubbed University of the East, 74-59, in other women’s games earlier at the Big Dome.

Just when every one thought NU was on its way to being a contender they start the season the way they normally do: with a bad loss to a good team. Whatever Eric Gonzlaez is running his guys aren't getting it, and there was much confusion among Joseph Terson, Jo Javillonar, Toto Tungcul and Ajeet Singh when it came to cutting-flaring on their 4-high offense. Result? Turnovers and botched plays.

Eagles Survive; Archers Fumble

Ateneo de Manila University went through some anxious moments for the second straight game but this time, the Blue Eagles hang tough to score their first win in the 73rd UAAP men’s basketball competition Thursday at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Emman Monfort shone in the homestretch to tow Ateneo to its first victory, a nail-biting 69-66 decision over the hard-fighting Adamson University Falcons.

Monfort canned six free throws in the dwindling seconds, the last two with 6.7 ticks left to keep the Eagles on top after the Falcons had trimmed the lead to just a point, 67-66, with an Alex Nuyles jumper.

“I think Adamson is one of the most difficult teams [to beat] in the league,” said Ateneo coach Norman Black. “We always have a hard time against them. They match up well with us, mainly because of their [big men].”

National University, though, spoiled De La Salle University’s bid to grab the solo lead with a 59-55 upset in the second game.

All four teams wound up with similar 1-1 records.

Emmanuel Mbe, a 6-foot-5 rookie from Cameroon, got the Bulldogs off to a strong start, burying 10 in the first quarter on the way to 21 points on top of 19 rebounds and one blocked shot.

“I just did my job and I’m proud of it,” said Mbe, one of three Africans seeing action in the league this season.

Jewel Ponferrada also stepped up in the final quarter, scoring all of his eight points in the last seven minutes to help the Bulldogs fend off a late La Salle rally.

“We tried to execute well as a team,” said new Bulldogs coach Eric Gonzales. “Our goal is still to be the No. 1 defensive team in the league.”

Kirk Long shot a team-high 12 points, while Nico Salva had 10 points, 11 rebounds and three assists as the back-to-back champion Eagles recovered from their opening-day 72-69 loss to the Far Eastern University Tamaraws last Sunday.

Eric Camson had a chance to win the game for the Falcons, but missed a three-point attempt at the buzzer.

“We went into this season knowing that the first two games we’re going to play are probably against two of the top teams,” said Black. “I have a lot of respect for Adamson. They’re 10-players deep and they’re well coached.”

The Eagles stretched their head-to-head winning streak against the Falcons to 26 games dating back to the 1997 season.

A 5-0 spurt erased the Falcons’ six-point advantage, 63-67, to just a point at 63-62.

Two consecutive turnovers doomed the Falcons as Monfort nailed six free throws to push the Eagles ahead going into the last minute.

It's his prerogative but Altamirano's decision to put in Parks in the end game when the result was all but decided was nothing but a shameless stats padding. And I thought it was just one of those conspiracy theories by them spurned suitors

Brod mali yata napaglagyan mo niyang post mo, Season 73 pa topic dito, hehe!

Anyway, yeah, it was stat-padding, as in kitang-kita ng lahat when he took out Parks with less than two minutes to go that Parks was visibly upset and remonstrating with Eric Altamirano and Vic Icasiano. Altamirano immediately sent him back in for Ajeet Singh. A few moments later he made that chase-down behind-the-back circus shot.

Champeon ;) din naman pala ang NU, although not in the seniors, this is still quite an achievement. Belated Congratulations sa inyo!

From GMAnews.tv: http://www.gmanews.tv/story/234249/sports/bullpups-clinch-1st-uaap-jrs-basketball-crown

National University clinched its first UAAP juniors basketball crown after beating Far Eastern University, 72-63, in Sunday's Game 3 of the 74th season finals at The Arena in San Juan City.

NU, one of the UAAP's founding members, is known to be the league's whipping boys in the past but is expected to shed the tag with SM Group founder Henry Sy Jr. bankrolling the Bulldogs' sports program.

Ralph Tansingco scored 18 points while Ralph Busa added 15 markers for the Bullpups, whose senior counterparts—the Bulldogs—have men's Most Valuable Player (MVP) Bobby Ray Parks in their roster.

NU forward Ralph Atangan tallied 18 points and 11 rebounds to emerge as the finals Most Valuable Player (MVP).

The Bullpups had to labor past the highly-favored Baby Tamaraws, the top seeded squad after the elimination round.

Atangan converted on a layup then sank two free throws to give the Bullpups breathing space, 70-62, with 32.4 seconds remaining in the do-or-die match.

"Hindi kami makapaniwala na nasa finals kami. Naniwala lang kami sa sistema at sa support ng NU community (We can't believe that we played in the finals. We just believed in the system and the NU community's support)," said Atangan.

For Bullpups head coach Jeff Napa, it was a dream come true—an achievement he failed to experience as a Bulldog.

"Ito ang pinakapangarap namin ni [assistant coach] Chico Manabat na hindi namin na-fulfill as a player. Kahit paano nanalo na rin ako sa basketball, as a coach (Assistant coach Chico Manabat and I have been dreaming of this moment, we failed to achieve this as a player. I finally won a basketball title, as a coach)," said the 31-year-old Napa, who was a key player when the Bulldogs made a rare Final Four appearance in the 2001 season.

The Bullpups' road to the finals was tough. They had to beat the La Salle-Zobel Junior Archers twice in the Final Four, before forcing the Baby Tamaraws to a do-or-die match for the title.

FEU won Game 1, 71-67, but lost to the spirited NU squad in Game 2, 57-46, when Typhoon Pedring was ravaging Luzon last week.

Season MVP Jerie Pingoy had 15 points, eight rebounds, six steals and six assists for FEU while Joshua Aguilon chipped in 15 markers. — JVP, GMA News
