Federation ito ah.. ndi ito tiong lian.. hehe.. Xavier joined the San Juan league if I'm not mistaken.. ndi sumasali Xavier sa league na ito though the rest of the TL teams kasama dito excluding NRYS and PCC (though PCC part ng TL way back in the 70s ata)..

sir, who are the strong contenders in this tournament?


I believe HCHS and CKSC are the strongest teams this season, apart from Xavier ofcourse. CKSC halos buo pa rin line-up with last year. 2 lng ata nawala. Expect a much stronger and more mature CKSC team this season. Last year nga they almost have beaten the likes of Xavier, HCHS and SJCS na eh, this year pa kaya. HCHS rin super malakas this season. Intact pa rin line-up nila. HCHS is also currently doing well in Fr. Marin Cup. SJCS can be the darkhorse. Ligad is still there but Lam and Lo wala na. But overall, malakas pa rin ang bench ng St. Jude this season. HCHS and CKSC have a great chance of beating Xavier School this year in TL especially with the departure of Manuel and Ong (ata). No idea for SSHS and UNO but I think these two teams are in a rebuilding mode including GCC. My top three picks for FED (not TL) are HCHS, CKSC and SJCS..

from what i've heard, sjcs defeated sshs.

i also think that hchs is the team to beat even in the this year's MMTLBA. sjcs is relatively weaker this year with the departure of kim lo and derrence lam. ligad must be their go to guy this year especially after his incredible performances last year

HOOPSTER: CKSC, Hope Christian share Federation lead
by Henry Liao for philippinebasketball.ph (09/04/2010)

Standings:
Hope Christian High School (3-0)
Chiang Kai Shek College (3-0)
St. Stephen’s High School (2-0)
St. Jude Catholic School (2-1)
Philippine Cultural College (1-2)
NRYS (0-2)
Grace Christian College (0-3)
Uno High School (0-3)

Chiang Kai Shek College and Hope Christian High School registered their third straight victories last Saturday to share the early leadership in the 21st Filipino-Chinese Amateur Athletic Association Federation high school basketball tournament at the CKSC gym.

Chiang Kai Shek College manhandled winless Grace Christian College, 95-49, and Hope Christian HS knocked St. Jude Catholic School out of the unbeaten ranks with a masterful 94-67 decision over the defending league champion.
In the main game of a tripleheader, Philippine Cultural College broke into the winning column after two consecutive losses following a come-from-behind 60-49 win over winless Uno High School.

St. Jude jumped to a 49-41 lead at halftime, but Hope Christian came roaring back at the start of the second half to take a 68-60 lead going into the payoff period.

Hope Christian, which has nine years with pure Filipino heritage on its roster (including 6-5 freshman J. Apacible), banked on the perimeter shooting of third-year guard Janrey Garido and the inside scoring of sophomore center Errol Villar to post its third win in as many assignments.

Hope Christian tightened its defense in the final 10 minutes as an exhausted St. Jude team lost steam and scored a measly seven points during the payoff period.

Garrido topped Hope Christian with 25 points. Villar scored 19 and 6-2 rookie DJ Mendoza added 13 for the winners.
St. Jude, which lost for the first time in three starts, was bannered by senior star Jason Ligad, who tallied 26 points. Much-improved strongman Richard Sy contributed 15 markers for the Judenites, who beat Chiang Kai Shek College to claim the Federation crown last season.

Ligad, who is averaging 16.7 points in the tournament, is currently practicing with a UAAP Final Four school that is dominated by sophomore and rookie players.

HOOPSTER: Hope Christian, CKSC Sizzle
by Henry Liao for philippinebasketball.ph (09/06/2010)

Standings:
Chiang Kai Shek College (4-0)
Hope Christian High School (4-0)
St. Jude Catholic School (3-1)
St. Stephen’s High School (2-1)
Philippine Cultural College (2-2)
Northern Yorklyn School (0-3)
Uno High School (0-4)
Grace Christian College (0-4)

Championship hopefuls Chiang Kai Shek College and Hope Christian High School continue to sizzle in the 21st Filipino Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation high school basketball tournament, posting their fourth consecutive victories in as many assignments last Sunday at the CKSC gym in Tondo, Manila.

Chiang Kai Shek College crushed Uno High School, 84-54, and Hope Christian blasted winless Northern Yorklyn School, 84-46, to share the tournament leadership with identical 4-0 records in the round-robin elimination phase that will send the top four teams to the crossover semifinal round.

In the other contests, defending Federation titlist St. Jude Catholic School returned to its winning ways with a close 53-47 decision over erstwhile unbeaten St. Stephen’s High School, and Philippine Cultural College registered its second win a row with a 72-65 triumph over winless Grace Christian College.

The SJCS-SSHS match was not decided until the final five minutes. The Stephenians kept the Judenites at bay, even taking the upperhand, 38-37, early in the payoff fourth quarter as St. Jude hotshot Jason Ligad was kept on the bench in the last 15 minutes due to anemic shooting.

With Ligad struggling with his perimeter shots, SJCS coach Goldwyn Monteverde went to foul-plagued Kurt Uy for instant offense.

Uy was forced to the sidelines after drawing his fourth foul midway through the first quarter. He returned at the start of the fourth period and knocked in 11 consecutive points – including three triples – as SJCS broke away from a slim 44-42 lead to go ahead, 50-42, at the 4:54 mark.

Uy, who eventually fouled out, had a team-best 13 points. No other Judenite scored in double digits. Ligad was held to six markers, all in the first half.

St. Stephen’s HS was bannered by bull-shouldered Kent Lao, who collected 17 points. The Stephenians lost for the first time following victories over Uno High School (53-47) and Grace Christian College (54-50).

The schedule for this week’s games (at the CKSC gym) is as follows:

September 11, Saturday (starting at 1:00 p.m.) – CKSC vs. SJCS, PCC vs. NRYS, Uno HS vs. Grace Christian College and Hope Christian HS vs. St. Stephen’s HS
September 12, Sunday (starting at 1:00 p.m.) – SJCS vs. Uno HS, GCC vs. NRYS, Hope Christian HS vs. PCC and CKSC vs. St. Stephen’s HS.

HOOPSTER: Tionglian goes for a double
by Henry Liao for philippinebasketball.ph (09/07/2010)

For the first time in its tradition-steeped history, the Metro Manila Tiong Lian Basketball Association will employ a double round-robin format in the elimination phase of its Juniors Division competitions.

The MMTLBA, which was instituted in the late 1960s, will start its 2010-11 season on December 6 (3:00 p.m.) with Chiang Kai Shek College taking on St. Stephen's High School at the SSHS gym.

The first-round games will be held on a home-and-away basis. In contrast, all the games in the second round, which will commence on Saturday, January 15, 2011, will be played at the CKSC gym.

As in previous years, the forthcoming Tiong Lian wars will feature seven schools participating in the Juniors level. Xavier School, which is gunning for an unprecedented fourth consecutive title, heads the cast. Also seeing action are St. Jude Catholic School (the runner-up in 2009 and 2010), Hope Christian High School, Chiang Kai Shek College, St. Stephen's High School, Uno High School and Grace Christian College. CKSC is this season's host.

Other first-round games that have already been scheduled this early include:
Dec. 8 (5 p.m.) - Hope Christian HS vs. Uno HS at HCHS gym,;
Dec. 11 - Uno HS vs.CKSC (2 p.m.) and GCC vs. SSHS (4 p.m.) at CKSC;
Dec. 15 - HCHS vs. St. Jude CS (3 p.m.) and Uno HS vs. GCC (5 p.m.) at Uno gym;
Dec. 19 - St. Jude vs. Xavier School and CKSC vs. SSHS at St. Jude CS or Xavier School;
Dec. 22 - GCC vs. HCHS (2 p.m.) at Xavier School.

Through the years, the Tiong Lian league has sent a number of its products to the country's premier collegiate basketball leagues in recent years. This include UP's Jose Anton Manuel and Woody Co of Xavier, UST's Kim Lo (St. Jude), Jeric Teng (Xavier) and Paolo Pe (Xavier), De La Salle's Gabriel Banal (Xavier), Ateneo de Manila's Justin Chua (CKSC), Mapua Tech's Jake Pascual (St. Stephen's HS), Letran's Patrick Ang (Grace Christian) and College of St. Benilde's Alexander Wong (CKSC).

RP Under-18 national team member Jeron Teng, who also competed for the Philippines in the 3-on-3 basketball tournament in the 1st Youth Olympic Games, is spearheading the Xavier Golden Stallions' "four-peat" title bid. Teng was named the 2010 Tiong Lian MVP after leading XS to a 2-0 sweep of St. Jude Catholic School in the best-of-three finals.

HOOPSTER: Hope Christian, CKSC Dispute Federation Leadership
by Henry Liao for philippinebasketball.ph (09/13/2010)

Team Standings:

Hope Christian HS (6-0)
Chiang Kai Shek College (6-0)
St. Jude Catholic School (4-2)
St. Stephen’s HS (3-3)
Philippine Cultural College (3-3)
Grace Christian HS (2-4)
Uno High School (0-6)
Northern Rizal Yorklin School (0-6)

Carrying identical 6-0 records, Hope Christian High School and Chiang Kai Shek College battle each other on Saturday, September 18 (3:30 p.m.), at the close of the preliminary round of the 21st Filipino Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation high school basketball tournament at the CKSC gym in Tondo, Manila.

At stake in the game is the No. 1 seed in the Final Four playoffs to be held on September 25. The loser is relegated to the No. 2 spot.

Nonetheless, both Hope Christian and CKSC have already earned the twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinals over their respective opponents. The Final Four pairings are No. 1 vs. No. 4 and No. 2 vs. No. 3.

In the first game (1 p.m.) of a quadruple-header on Saturday, St. Stephen’s HS and Philippine Cultural Collegel dispute the fourth and last ticket to the Final Four party.

In other matchups, St. Jude Catholic School, which is assured of the No. 3 seed, takes on Grace Christian College while Uno High School and Northern Rizal Yorklin School knock each other off in a battle of winless squads.

Over the weekend, Hope Christian and Chiang Kai Shek College pick up two more victories apiece to bring their record to a perfect 6-0.

Hope drubbed St. Stephen’s HS, 74-26, Saturday night behind Jessiery Pedrosa’s 19 points then posted an easy 67-49 decision over Philippine Cultural College the next day behind Don Mendoza’s 13 points and Janrey Garrido’s 12.

CKSC took care of St. Jude CS, 47-40, on Saturday and followed it up with a close 54-47 success against St. Stephen’s HS the following day.

Grace Christian, which dropped its first four assignments in the eight-school competitions, also won twice over the weekend – 79-74 over Uno HS in double overtime and 86-35 over NRYS.

The twin victories meant that Grace Christian will retain its Group A status next season. Uno HS and NRYS, as this year’s last two placers, will be relegated to Group B in 2011.

Results of the other games on September 11-12: Philippine Cultural College defeated NRYS, 69-57, and St. Jude Catholic School (Kurt Uy and Jason Ligad scored 17 points each) beat Uno HS, 71-61.

Negotiations are ongoing for a television coverage of the semifinals and finals of the FCAAF high-school basketball tournament.

May I ask if there was anything wrong with winning against a team that only came with 7 players?

Dont you think that SJCS intentionally came with 7 players considering it was a no bearing game?

Aren't the 7 players who suited up for the game their main guy? or were they bench warmers? it would be a shame for GCC to loose if the 7 players of SJCS were bench warmers, otherwise it's quite even because i know that SJCS takes pride in their basketball and would not allow themselves to be defeated by a young GCC team who did not win a single game in Tiong Lian.

From what i've heard, the SJCS team that GCC beat last saturday is only composed of 2 of their usual starters (ligad and justin uy) and a 2nd stringer in kurt uy. I didn't know what happened to the st.jude team only bringing 7 players

Team Standings:
Hope Christian High School (7-0)
Chiang Kai Shek College (6-1)
St. Jude Catholic School (4-3),
St. Stephen’s High School (4-3)
Philippine Cultural College (3-4)
Grace Christian College (3-4)
Uno High School (1-6)
Northern Rizal Yorklin School (0-7)

Top seed Hope Christian High School clashes with No. 4 seed St. Stephen’s High School and No. 2 seed Chiang Kai Shek College takes on No. 3 seed St. Jude Catholic School on Saturday, September 25, in the semi-finals of the 21st Filipino Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation high school basketball tournament at the CKSC gym.

The doubleheader starts at 3:30 p.m. Hope Christian HS and Chiang Kai Shek College enjoy a twice-to-beat advantage over their respective opponents.

Victories by St. Jude Catholic School and St. Stephen’s HS on Saturday will force a rubber match in both series on Sunday, September 26, also at the CKSC gym.

In the final playdate of the elimination round last Saturday, St. Stephen’s HS beat Philippine Cultural College, 61-47, to gain the fourth and final semifinal berth; Grace Christian College scored a come-from-behind 65-62 decision over defending champion St. Jude Catholic School; Hope Christian HS blasted Chiang Kai Shek College, 79-60, to gain the No. 1 ranking; and Uno High School avoided a last-place finish with a victory over Northern Rizal Yorklin School.

Grace Christian College won its last three assignments, including a pulsating 65-62 decision over St. Jude CS on a three-point play by Kristian Furigay with 4.1 seconds left that broke a 62-62 deadlock.

Frank Gomendoza tallied 20 points and Furigay added a dozen markers for Grace Christian, which tied Philippine Cultural College with a 3-4 record but finished in sixth place following the application of the winner-over-the-other rule. PCC beat Grace, 72-65, in their encounter.

Kurt Uy, the younger brother of former Judenite Vance Uy, led St. Jude with 23 points. Hotshot Jason Ligad, who misfired on a potential tie-making three-pointer at the buzzer, had 13.

In a battle between unbeaten squads, Hope Christian gave up the game’s first five points then scored nine consecutive points to go ahead, 9-5.

Hope Christian never trailed thereafter and went up, 21-11, after the first quarter. The team took a 29-19 lead midway through the second period on frontliner Errol Villar’s twinner and was ahead by at least 10 points for the rest of the game.

Hope Christian owned a 40-27 halftime advantage as cat-quick and pesky playmaker Janrey Garrido knocked in 13 points, including three triples.

CKSC was behind, 58-40, after three quarters and trailed by as much as 25 points (70-45 and 75-50) midway through the payoff period.

Garrido wound up with 24 points, including 12 from the three-point area, for Hope Christian. Frontliners Jessiery Pedrosa and King Benemerito contributed nine markers each. Raymond Tan and Villar, who suffered a left ankle sprain in the final minute of the first half, added eight apiece for the winners.

Chiang Kai Shek College was bannered by Paul Aduana, who scored 11 points, and Cyril Mopas, who had 10 (all in the first half).

Yes, I watched the first three games last saturday.. Most people were shocked as SJCS only had 7 players in their bench.. But from what I heard in the reserved area, majority of their players are either "injured" or "sick".. Though I saw some of their players sitting in the reserved area of the gymnasium and looked pretty well.. I think I saw Ryan Chua and Leslie (forgot the surname) in the reserved area.. On the other hand, it is also possible that it's SJCS strategy as the next game after their game is between CKSC and HCHS in which they will be facing the losing team in the final four regardless of their game against GCC.. Nevertheless, I still believe that SJCS can easily win against GCC if their line-up is complete.. GCC just really wanted more to win that game as they are coming from a 2 game winning streak prior to their win over SJCS.. They even won against NRYS by 51 points even exceeding the winning margin of CKSC and HCHS over NRYS..

I think HCHS can upset Xavier School in the coming season of MMTLBA.. They have blasted the entire TL Teams.. Their smallest winning margin in Federation was against CKSC (19 points).. They dumped the other remaining TL teams at an average of points.. They def. SJCS by 28 or 29 pts., def. GCC, UNO and SSHS by 40 something points..

It is still hard to tell, Tiong Lian is still 2 months away. not all players in the line up of HCHS will be eligible for Tiong Lian because of residency rule.

yeah i agree it's still too early to tell since we haven't seen xavier play yet and some players from hchs still have to serve residency before they could enter tiong lian. But i think if xavier didn't get any good players on their line up for this yr they are in big trouble for sure i'm sure they wouldn't get as clean of a record as they had the last 2 years at Tiong Lian

if ever HCHS beats XS in this year's MMTLBA, i wouldn't consider that as an upset. i think that HCHS has a big chance of winning the crown this year since their team is pretty much intact (like SJCS last season) compared to XS who lost their go to guy in Manuel and other players who served as key players during their last championship e.g. Kevin Lee, Dizon etc

I totally agree with this!

I think HCHS is really the team to beat this MMTLBA and not XS. HCHS already won a game in a summer tournament over XS, but loss the winner-take-all championship game to XS. That means, after last year's MMTLBA season, they are 1-1 on their head to head meeting.

Yeah right, I nearly forgot the residency rule. If that's the case then I think Xavier and CKSC can evenly match HCHS. But HCHS is really strong this season. They are currently standing at 7-0 in the 21st FCAAF and 5-0 (beating the team A and B of the Juniors division of some of the UAAP and NCAA schools) in Fr. Martin Cup Division II. I guess this has been the strongest HCHS team that I've ever seen. As early as now, I can already see a three-cornered fight (Xavier-HCHS-CKSC) in this year's TL. Though I can sense already a HCHS-Xavier finals this TL, we should still be wary of CKSC, which I think would be the darkhorse this season. CKSC is also a strong team this season as nearly all of their players are still playing this season. The only problem with this team is that their big men are not as talented as those of HCHS; that's why they were defeated by a huge 19 points by HCHS at the end of the elims in FCAAF. Ofcourse, not to mention other teams like last year's finalist and defending FCAAF Champion SJCS, Kent Lao bannered SSHS and the young but upset conscious squad of GCC. These teams will do everything to take every single game out of their opponent. For UNO, who finished 1-6 (winning only over NRYS, which is expected as the latter is not a TL Team) at the end of FCAAF, a lot of things should be done for them to be a contender in this season. Just an opinion..... ;D

Manong,

I'm sure it does. Pe is with you because of Thomasian roots of the aunt, right? Anyhow, I was conversing with someone yesterday, and it seems that ever since other UAAP schools amped up recruiting, UST's "usual suspects" no longer turn out to be sure shots. When was the last time you came up with a Henry Ong or an Estong Ballesteros? Tagal na rin ano? Sa bagay, with even Ateneo and Lasalle looking SSC's and Mapua's way, your competition for fresh blood as increased. Samantalang dati, inyo na nga iyon, nakakakuha pa kayo ng Manong Cruz sa amin, Binky Favis sa LSGH, Gerard Francisco sa CSA, etc.

Para on-topic, if before sa Tiong Lian nakahanap kayo ng Luanzon, nakakuha naman ngayon ang Ateneo ng Chua. (Xavier boys excepted, brother school naman kasi.)

No worries though, in time another Jervy Cruz will surely surface and terrorize the league with his board work again, leaving us to ponder the question --"where the flying f_ _ _ did he come from?"

On Jervy's part, he went to UST daw without invites. Napadpad lang because he heard there was open try outs. He was supposed to stay in Team Benavidez for just a year but academic problems. Good thing he was able to sort out his academics when coach Pido came. If it were another coach he would not have been given the same opportunities as coach Pido gave him.

HOOPSTER: Hope Christian, CKSC in Federation Finals
by Henry Liao for philippinebasketball.ph (09/26/2010)

Top seed Hope Christian High School and second-ranked Chiang Kai Shek College will clash on Saturday, October 2 (4:00 p.m.) in the one-game finals of the 21st Filipino Chinese Amateur Athletic Federation high school basketball tournament at the CKSC Main Gym in Tondo, Manila.

In the semifinals last Saturday, Hope Christian HS and Chiang Kai Shek College made short work of No. 4 seed St. Stephen’s High School and No. 3 seed and 2009 Federation titlist St. Jude Catholic School, respectively, to advance to the championship game.

Hope Christian, which handed St. Stephen’s HS a 74-26 shellacking during the elimination round, repeated with a 72-51 decision over the Stephenians and clinched it's eighth consecutive win in as many games in the eight-school competitions that started last August 28.

St. Stephen’s HS offered a bit of resistance until late in the first half, forging a 26-26 deadlock on a three by bulky center Kent Lao. However, Hope Christian came roaring back, knocking in seven straight markers to enjoy a 33-26 halftime lead on guard Janrey Garrido’s three-pointer.

It was part of an 18-0 blast by Hope Christian bridging the second and third quarters that gave the tournament’s only unbeaten squad a commanding 44-26 advantage.

Jessiery Pedrosa scored 10 of his game-high 23 points during the crucial stretch.

Hope Christian cruised to a 50-35 lead entering the fourth quarter and was never threatened the rest of the way.

Hope Christian’s big men Errol Villar (16, including 12 in the second half)) and Don Mendoza (15) combined for 31 points in support of Pedrosa, who earned Freego Player of the Game honors. Garrido had a couple of threes and finished with eight markers, all in the first 20 minutes.

Lao topscored for St. Stephen’s HS with 23 points, including three three-pointers in the first half.

In the other semifinal game, Chiang Kai Shek College sent St. Jude Catholic School to an early vacation, coming up with an easy 66-49 victory in a rematch of last year’s Federation finals.

The Blue Dragons also beat the Judenites, 47-40, during the preliminary phase.

CKSC jumped to a quick 11-0 start on baskets by Cyril Mopas, Marc Yip, Paul Aduana and Arvin Faustino (a two and a three) and was never seriously threatened by St. Jude from thereon.

The Blue Dragons were ahead 20-10 after the first quarter and took a 36-20 edge at halftime as the Judenites’ main man, Jason Ligad, was visibly frustrated by the leech-like, in-your-face defense of CKSC’s Wilmer Kho.

Ligad missed a pair of free throws and knocked in his lone field goal of the game in the first 20 minutes. Held scoreless in the entire second half, he also was whistled for an unsportsmanlike foul in the third period.

CKSC was ahead by at least 10 points throughout the final 20 minutes, carrying a 46-34 advantage into the fourth quarter. The Blue Dragons enjoyed their biggest lead of 21 points (62-41) late in the payoff period.

Aduana, the Freego Player of the Game, scored 18 points for CKSC, whose only loss in eight assignments was a 79-60 shellacking at the hands of Hope Christian HS on the last playdate of the elimination round.

Faustino, who missed the game against Hope Christian due to a groin injury, collected 11 for the winners.

St. Jude Catholic School, which lost to Kim Lo (now with the University of Santos Tomas Growling Tigers in the UAAP) and Derrence Lam to graduation, got 15 points each from Kurt Uy (three threes) and Richard Sy (seven free throws).

The semifinal and final games of the Federation tournament will be aired on Viva Prime Channel 82 via Destiny cable television starting October 2.

The boxscores:

Hope Christian HS (72) – Jessiery Pedrosa 23, Christian Errol Villar 16, Don Louis Mendoza 15, Janrey Garrido 8, King Benemerito 6, Raymond Tan 3, Elijah Tancauco 2 and Clint Doliquez 0.

St. Stephen’s HS (51) – Kent Lao 23, Emarson Que 8, Jet Fernandez 5, Matthew Yeo 5, Matthew Cua 4, Nikki Co 3, Adrian Te 2 and Karlo Koa 1.

Chiang Kai Shek College (66) – Paul Aduana 18, Arvin Faustino 11, John Baytan 6, Joshua Tan 6, Lorenzo Yan 5, Gregorio Gimado 4, John Nieles 4, Wilmer Kho 4, Marc Yip 3, Kimlee Bayquin 2 and Cyril Mopas 2.

St. Jude Catholic School (49) – Kurt Uy 15, Richard Sy 15, Justin Uy 7, Ryan Chua 4, Leslie Tan 3, Mark Ong 2, Oscar Tan 2 and Jason Ligad 2.

HCHS def. CKSC 68-65

HCHS was severely challenged by CKSC. CKSC trailed as much as as 12 points throughout the game but came back strong in the 4th quarter to nearly pull off an upset over the "RECRUIT" based team HCHS (9 out of its 15 players are recruited from other provinces and/or other schools). This was the smallest winning margin of HCHS in this year's season FCAAF. Prior to the finals, their smallest winning margin was against fifth seeded PCC by 18, followed by the very same CKSC team by 19 points at the end of the elimination round. It was almost a decade since HCHS last won its title in FCAAF. The 9-0 sweep by HCHS enabled them to become the league favorite in the upcoming season of MMTLBA, together with four-peat seeking Xavier School and upset-conscious CKSC who nearly pulled off an upset against powerhouse HCHS.

Nice observation about powerhouse HCHS regarding "RECRUIT". But if you look at CKSC, the team that started this recruiting business, they also have quite a number of "RECRUITS" in their line-up. I think CKSC has about the same number of recruits in their current FCAAF roster as to that of HCHS. So we could say that these two "RECRUIT" based teams should be quite even when we talk about recruits. In fact, CKSC still has some recruits in their "other" teams. They even have a recruit and some other prospects from fellow FCAAF and Tiong Lian schools.

So if we call HCHS "RECRUIT" based team? How should we call CKSC?

youngdude
10-03-2010, 11:29 PM
^ yes, i agree with u naz-t, CKSC has about 5-6 recruits in their current line-up.. I only called HCHS as "recruit" based team since in their current line-up, majority or should I say all of their key players come from their recruits. I mean they can surely have hard time winning games if you remove these players because these are the ones who consistently play well for their team. On the other hand, CKSC, yes also a "recruit" based team, but the only difference is that they win games not solely because of their recruits. This team can still win games even if you remove their recruits because its more of a group work that this team has. In short, their offense come from almost all of their players unlike for HCHS in which the recruits are usually the top scorers or the ones who consistently play well. This is the reason why HCHS is more evident now when it comes to recruit because sila yung laging napapansin at nagdodominate sa team nila. Unlike CKSC na halos lahat gumagawa and they do not solely rely on thier recruits from what I have observed. But yes, at the end, these two teams are "recruit" based team. No doubt about that. CKSC started it all with Justin (not sure with the spelling) Chua, who now plays for the ADMU Blue Eagles. This is ofcourse based from my personal observation. I have nothing against these two teams.

I think Saint Jude is the only school that doesn't have a recruitment program the reason being that every student has to start from its own preschool to be able to study there. So all the players are home grown talent.

Question lang ah no idea kasi... does Xavier school have a recruitment program? kumukha ba sila ng players from outside their school? Kasi parang yun latest news about recruitment parati na lang nasa hope, chiang kai etc.. never heard a thing about xavier if they recruit from other schools or not.

Include UNO and GCC? Don't think Xavier recruits players from other schools. They dont need to do that since all boys school naman sila. Their homegrown players are already enough for them to win and dominate MMTLBA. Though we see some names of the famous basketball clan like those of Banals, I believe they were not recruited by Xavier but instead, their parents opted them (their son) to go to Xavier School. No wonder if we see the likes of Eala, Ejerecito and more in Xavier's line-up in the years to come.

youngdude, i think it's the other way around. 5-6 guys in the current line-up of CKSC are not recruits. Majority are recruited from Bacolod and some from other school. Some of the recruits have either chinese surname or chinese sounding surnames which would confuse people, iisipin mo homegrown pero recruit din. I think kahit na group scoring ang ginagawa ng CKSC majority parin ng contribution galing sa recruits nila. Hindi concentrate sa konting players ang contribution nila kasi nga karamihan sa players ng CKSC ay recruit kaya sayang naman kung hindi mo papakinabangan. Pinaggastosan nila kunin, pakainin, paaralan at paggastusan tapos hindi rin masyado gagamitin, sayang naman. At iisipin mo rin na homegrown sila kasi nga bata palang nagre recruit na sila. Like Nieles, naglaro na yan sa ibang teams ng CKSC. Hindi lang nga recruit gawa ng CKSC, parang Pirata na nga kung iisipin. Kasi pati sa mga nakakalaban nila kumukuha sila. Parang win at all cost na nga.

HOOPSTER: Hope Christian Captures Federation Crown
by Henry Liao for philippinebasketball.ph (10/04/2010)

Hope Christian High School survived a last-ditch rally by Chiang Kai Shek College to register a pulsating 68-65 victory in the Group A finals of the 21st Filipino Amateur Athletic Federation high-school basketball tournament at the CKSC gym in Tondo, Manila.

Hope Christian, which won all of its nine assignments in the eight-school, five-week tournament, went ahead for good after trailing just once (4-3) in the first three minutes of the one-game finals. The Stevenson Tiu-coached team was ahead, 25-16, after the first quarter and owned a 40-31 advantage at halftime as Jessiery Pedrosa, who earned Freego Final Four MVP honors, scattered 16 of his game-high 21 points in the first 20 minutes.

With its plethora of big men frolicking in the lane, Hope Christian enjoyed its largest lead at 51-39 and was up by nine points, 57-48, entering the payoff quarter. It was still ahead by eight, 65-57, on an Errol Villar jumper with four minutes left before Chiang Kai Shek went on an 8-1 run to trail by just a point, 66-65, at the 1:14 mark.

Coach Joel Yap’s Blue Dragons had several opportunities to take the lead in the final minute but failed to connect in any of their field attempts. After guard John Nieles failed to complete a three-point play that would have sent the game to a 66-66 deadlock, big man Greg Gimado missed a jumper.

Pedrosa went 1-for-2 from the free-throw line with 29.1 seconds left to lift Hope Christian to a 67-65 edge. He again split a pair of freebies with 10.4 ticks remaining after CKSC guard Arvin Faustino’s jumpshot bounced off the rim.

CKSC still had a chance to send the game into overtime but Gimado missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.

Hope Christian, whose big men dominated the offensive glass to win the rebounding battle, got 12 points (including eight in the second half) from Villar, who was voted Freego Player of the Game, and 10 from Don Louis Mendoza.

CKSC, whose only two defeats in nine games came at the hands of Hope Christian, was led by Faustino, who knocked in 18 points. Paul Aduana (15) and Lorenzo Yan (10) also scored in double digits for the Blue Dragons.

In the third-place game, Jason Ligad scored 23 points to power 2009 Federation champion St. Jude Catholic School to a 59-51 victory over St. Stephen’s High School.

In the Group B finals, Makati Hope Christian School captured the championship with an 87-75 win over erstwhile unblemished Philippine Academy of Sakya.

Senior Joshua Cordoves, the Freego Player of the Game and Freego Final Four MVP, collected a double with 38 points (including 24 in the first half and 10-for-16 from the free-throw line) and 15 rebounds to lead Makati Hope, which dropped a three-point overtime decision to Sakya during their elimination-round encounter for its only setback in 10 appearances in the tournament.

Cordoves, the son of former Chiang Kai Shek College player Bobby Cordoves, averaged 28.8 ppg in four playoff games.

Sakya, which finished with an 8-1 record, was powered by Bryan Meraplis, who had 36 points in a shootout with Cordoves.

Philippine Chen Kuang downed Quezon City Christian Academy to place third in the Group B competitions.

The first semifinal game between Hope Christian HS and St. Stephen’s HS will be shown at Viva Prime 82 via Destiny cable television on Oct. 9 (Saturday, 1130 a.m.).
