As seen on Inboundpass.com, Gino Jumao-as has opted to stay with SSC-R. The Tams lose out on him.

Yeah.. also the pinatubo twin tower staying put too..oh well you'll never know where their playing coz a lot of Uziseros and Posers trying to misled the Fans to whom nor where to go but an official line-up of every teams to be submit or submitted is only proof to rely on. like what you said Gino jumao-as stayed put , I also waiting the FEu's Varsity line-up so that we can put to rest if Ramos, Cervantes, Knuttel opted or forgo their playing years. jumao-as is not a loss of tams they still have new and intact old faces Tolomia Garcia and Romeo to speak off. his (gino) services are much needed in Baste than in Feu to counter the San Beda in NCaa Wars afterall Coach Turo Valensona asked them to stayed.

FEU still has a tendency to cruise and coast in the end-game after building a big lead. Adamson nearly overhauled their lead. UP had a pretty good chance to upset last season's runners up in regulation as well. It's like the Tamaraws are tempting fate by allowing the opposition to build confidence and then scrambling to beat them. So far the only real strong game for FEU was their walloping of Mapua.

By the way, will Aldrech Ramos be off on Gilas duty during the invitational tournament to be held at ULTRA in the coming weeks?

Manila, Philippines - Far Eastern U stamped its class on Jose Rizal U, breaking away early en route to a 79-63 rout and a seat in the quarterfinal round of the Filoil Flying V Hanes Pre-Season Premier Cup at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

The Tamaraws pummeled the Heavy Bombers right in the opening period and kept the beating throughout as they preserved a clean slate at 6-0.

RR Garcia came through with 16 points, three rebounds and two blocks while Pipo Noundou, Terrence Romeo and Chris Tolomi chipped in at least 10 points each.

San Sebastian outplayed Lyceum in the clutch and enhanced its own quarterfinals bid with an 81-74 decision.

In the other game, University of the East came from behind to beat winless St. Benilde, 74-66.

Ronald Pacual and Ian Sangalang both churned out a double-double numbers for the Stags with the former logging 20 points and 10 rebounds and the latter tallying 20 points and 13 rebounds.

The scores:

Surging Tamaraws destroy St. Benilde

THE Far Eastern University Tamaraws continued to flex their might over Group B with a dominant 81-49 triumph over the College of Saint Benilde Blazers in the 2011 FilOil Flying V Pre-Season Premier Cup last May 20 at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Tams buried CSB early, coming out of the box with a 25-5 first quarter that saw the Blazers fail to score until the 2:55 mark.

Despite coming into the game with a big target on their backs as the only remaining undefeated team in the tournament, FEU simply couldn’t be fazed, outscoring the hapless Blazers in each quarter.

Terrence Romeo led the Tams with 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting and added four assists. All 14 Tams fielded by coach Bert Flored scored at least a point, including the returning Aldrech Ramos, who finished with three points, five rebounds, a steal and a block. Ramos had missed the last three games due to an ankle injury and a prior commitment to the national team.

With the lead at 43-18 at halftime, FEU continued to keep its foot on the gas. A 12-0 run near the end of the third, fueled by fastbreak points, put the advantage at a high of 31, 64-33. The runners-up in last year’s FilOil Flying V Pre-Season Cup and UAAP tournament even wound up scoring the last six points of the game as St. Benilde missed on a series of gimmes, with Christian Sentcheu putting the exclamation point on the blowout with a putback slam of a Jolas Guerrero miss.

Jonathan Grey was the only Blazer who finished in double figures, scoring 14 points. Luis Sinco added nine, while last season’s NCAA Rookie of the Year Carlo Lastimosa had just two points in 18 minutes.

The Tams held CSB to just 34 percent shooting, while making 48 percent of their own field goals. The Blazers didn’t exactly help their cause as they converted just 8 of their 21 charities.

FEU head coach Bert Flores shrugged off his squad’s undefeated record, saying, “Ang playoffs ang importante; yung mga UAAP [teams] sa kabilang group. Dun namin matetest ang sistema ko.”

The mentor who last guided FEU to a UAAP championship also added that it was unlikely that DLSU-transferee Arvie Bringas would play for the Tams this season, saying, “Hindi siya na-release nila [DLSU].” Arvie, whose brother Mark already plays for the Tams, will probably have to sit out an additional year of residency.

The Blazers sunk to the bottom of the standings with a 0-7 record. W5

The score:

FEU 81 – Romeo 14, Noundou 12, Tolomia 9, Garcia 8, Knuttel 6, Cruz 6, Sentcheu 5, Mendoza 4, Escoto 4, Foronda 4, Cawaling 3, Ramos 3, Bringas 2, Guerrero 1

CSB 49 – Grey 14, Sinco 9, McCoy 5, Tan 4, Fikowski 4, Altamirano 3, Taha 2, Romero 2, C. Lastimosa 2, de la Paz 2, Musngi 2, Deles 0, Garcia 0, Maconocido 0, de Guzman 0, Carlos 0

Quarter scoring: 25-5, 43-18, 64-37, 81-49 :P

05-22-2011, 12:56 PM
Folks , No Arvie Bringas this coming UAAp S74 ...DLSU didnt released his Papers...well as expected what else is new. ;D 8)

Tams, Stags beat separate foes in FilOil preseason tourney05/20/2011 | 06:04 PM

Far Eastern University (FEU) remained unbeaten in Group B, while San Sebastian College-Recoletos (SSC-R) joined Ateneo on top of Group A after beating separate foes in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Preseason Premier Cup at The Arena in San Juan City.

FEU coasted to an 81-49 victory over College of Saint Benilde, with the Tamaraws clinching their seventh straight win to move one game away of sweeping their elimination round assignments. The Blazers remain winless after six games.

The Stags downed Arellano, 82-68, in the final game to join idle Ateneo on top of their group with a 5-1 card.

The Morayta-based squad pulled away early for the easy win. FEU used a 20-0 start before settling for a 25-5 count at the end of the first quarter.

The Tams hope to complete a seven-game sweep of their Group B assignments when they face the Letran Knights on May 28.

FEU coach Bert Flores said the Tams’ real test will be in the next round, where the top four teams in their group will face the other group in the crossover quarterfinal round.

"Kahit wala kaming talo sa eliminations, kung matalo kami sa quarterfinals, wala na rin," said Flores.

Terrence Romeo led the Tamaraws with 14 points while Pipo Noundou scored 12.

The Stags, meanwhile, erupted for 27 points in the third period to turn a 36-34 halftime lead to a 63-44 advantage entering the final 10 minutes of the contest. The Stags were never threatened after that.

Ian Sangalang, who led San Sebastian’s third quarter breakaway, finished with 17 points and seven rebounds while Jonathan Semira added 13 markers, eight rebounds and five assists.

Calvin Abueva tallied 11 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists also for the Stags.

Arellano dropped to 1-5.

Earlier, Nate Matute drilled in two key three-pointers to lift Jose Rizal University to a 74-68 win over Emilio Aguinaldo College.

Matute had 20 points on a 5-of-7 shooting from beyond the arc to help the Heavy Bombers end a three-game slide and improve their record to 3-4.

He hit back-to-back triples to put JRU ahead, 66-60, in the 2:57 mark of the final period.

FEU clobbers Letran, sweeps way to knockout round
by inboundpass
Saturday, 28 May 2011 Views / 5 Comments FAR Eastern University remained the only unbeaten team in the 2011 FilOil Flying V Pre-Season Premier Cup after throttling the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights, 72-56 to complete a sweep of Group B last May 28 at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Tamaraws, tournament runners-up in 2010, flashed their much-improved transition game and pressing defense, scoring 22 turnover points while holding the Knights to just five in the same category.

Pipo Noundou led the FEU attack with 15 points and seven rebounds. Last season’s UAAP Rookie of the Year, Terrence Romeo, added 15 points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals, while Season 73 MVP RR Garcia fired in 11.

FEU led from start to finish, but Letran did its best to keep in step with early on, trailing by just five, 18-13, after the first quarter.

Andrei Mendoza converted on a wide-open look late in the second quarter that cut the FEU lead to four, 32-28, before the Tams closed the half with a 7-2 run that gave them their first double-digit lead of the game, one they didn’t let go of.

Despite their sterling record, FEU head coach Bert Flores chose to caution his charges, telling them, “Kahit sweep kayo, mas importante ang semis, kasi nandun ang ibang mga UAAP teams. Wala ka namang advantage [if you finish with a sweep in the elimination round].”

Kevin Alas led all scorers with 17 points while pulling down eight rebounds. Kevin Racal added 12, while Jam Cortes and Raymond Almazan combined for 20 rebounds.

Letran turned the ball over 27 times, with Alas and Cortes tallying six each in that department.

The transition attack was an area of focus for Flores, one of the few changes he installed after taking over for Glenn Capacio, the previous Tams head coach. “Nakilala na nila ang sistema ko,” Flores said happily.

All 14 Tamaraws got minutes in this game, but team management is hopeful that two more players will suit up for FEU by next week. One is former San Sebastian Staglet Gino Juamo-as, while the other is a fresh high school graduate from Cebu. FEU next plays on Monday, June 6, where it awaits Group A’s fourth-placer.

The Knights had a commanding 47-29 advantage in rebounds, including 25-10 on the offensive glass. But Letran simply couldn’t convert, as they shot just 33 percent for the entire game. W5

The scores:

FEU 72 – Noundou 15, Romeo 15, Garcia 11, Cawaling 7, Ramos 7, Cruz 5, Knuttel 4, Exciminiano 4, Tolomia 2, Sentcheu 2, Escoto 0, Bringas 0, Mendoza 0, Guerrero 0

Letran 56 – Alas 17, Racal 12, Cortes 6, Almazan 5, Belorio 4, Cruz 4, Mendoza 4, Dysam 3, Lituania 1, Espiritu 0

Quarter scoring: 18-13, 39-29, 54-40, 72-5

05-29-2011, 12:59 PM

FEU finishes off De La Salle
by inboundpass
Monday, 6 June 2011 Views / 28 Comments THE Far Eastern University Tamaraws forged a rematch of last season’s UAAP Finals with the Ateneo Blue Eagles after a hard-fought 73-68 win over De La Salle University in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Fil-Oil Flying V Pre-Season Premier Cup last June 6 at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Displaying grace under fire, the Tams knocked in nine out of 10 free throws in the last two minutes of the game, blunting a late Green Archer comeback attempt that saw Joseph Marata cut their lead to just two points with 9.9 seconds left to play.

LA Revilla expended his last foul to send Terrence Romeo to the line, where last UAAP season’s Rookie of the Year hit his first charity, but missed his second. Luckily for Romeo, Pipo Noundou scooped up the miss and drew another foul from Luigi de la Paz. With 7.4 seconds left, Noundou hit both, restoring a five-point, 73-68 disparity that the Archers didn’t have enough time to overcome.

Last season’s MVP, RR Garcia, had his best game of the summer, pouring in 30 points, to go with five rebounds and assists. RP National Team member Aldrech Ramos added 12 points and seven boards, while Noundou, a possible MVP candidate in this tournament, scattered eight markers and hauled down an impressive 17 rebounds, with eight on the offensive end.

Though FEU drew first blood on a layup by Ramos, De La Salle responded with a 14-2 blast fueled by baskets from Arnold Van Opstal and Jovet Mendoza. Luckily for FEU, JR Cawaling was able to hit a triple to close out the quarter with just a seven-point deficit staring his team down, 20-13.

“May mga lapses sa game plan. Nagigil sill dahli sa long break,” said FEU head coach Bert Flores.

After a quick sermon, FEU responded with one of its best defensive efforts in the entire tournament as it shut down the Green Archers in the second quarter, holding them to a single field goal and three free throws. The 18-5 quarter allowed FEU to jump ahead, 31-25 at halftime.

In the third quarter, Garcia took over, nailing three triples and an easy layup to give FEU a double-digit lead at 50-40. That advantage was extended by another corner triple from Cawaling.

With the Tamaraws running away with the game, La Salle turned to Mendoza once again, and the former NU Bullpup responded, scoring his team’s first seven points and whittling down the lead to single-digits, 55-47. A put-back of a missed Romeo triple by Noundou and another triple courtesy of Garcia restored the double-digit lead, 60-47, before De La Salle went on a 10-1 run to chew away on the lead, 61-57. With 27.5 seconds remaining in the game, LA Revilla looked to take on the hero’s role that he assumed in his squad’s June 4 encounter versus the Blue Eagles, nailing a triple to get within three, 66-63. Time wasn’t on the Taft unit’s side, however, as DLSU exited the tournament in the same phase it did last year.

Mendoza paced La Salle with a whopping 22 points, the only Green Archer in double-figures. He also set the gold standard for his teammates as he sank a sterling 12 of 13 charities from the line, a far cry from the 57 percent-clip his team was norming entering the game. Revilla added seven points and seven dimes, while big men Van Opstal and Papot Paredes combined for 14 points and seven rebounds.

La Salle was short-handed, however, playing without the injured Norbert Torres, who is expected to miss two weeks after sustaining an elbow injury. Senior Joshua Webb also sat out the game due to knee troubles but was on the Archers’ sideline in street clothes.

The win has the Tamaraws moving on to put their unbeaten Group B record against the second placer in Group A, Ateneo, the same squad that swept them in two games in the Finals of UAAP Season 73. “Maganda nag sistema nila,” admitted Flores, who will try to steer his squad to a return trip to the Finals of the annual preseason tournament.

The taller, more experienced FEU frontcourt outrebounded the younger Green Archers, 50-38, including a 21-12 advantage on the offensive glass. W5

The scores:

FEU 73 – Garcia 30, Ramos 12, Noundou 8, Romeo 8, Cawaling 6, Cruz 5, Bringas 2, Exciminiano 1, Knuttel 1, Tolomia 0, Escoto 0

DLSU 68 – Mendoza 22, Revilla 7, Van Opstal 7, Paredes 7, Atkins 6, Andrada 6, Marata 4, Vosotros 4, de la Paz 2, Sara 2, Villanueva 1, Tampus 0, Gotladera 0

Ateneo Knock out FEU

THE last seniors match in the 2011 FilOil Flying V Pre-Season Premier Cup will be the same one that kicked off the entire tournament.

Seven-foot University of the Visayas transferee and national team member Greg Slaughter scored six of Ateneo de Manila University’s last eight points to keep the Far Eastern University Tamaraws at bay and out of the tournament, 82-74 in the semifinals at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan last June 10.

The victory sets up a rematch of last April 9′s season opening encounter between the Blue Eagles and San Beda College, a game that Ateneo won, 90-87, behind 26 points from Slaughter. The title game will be played at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 12.

Remarkably, it will be Ateneo’s first crack at the FilOil Flying V trophy since the tournament’s inception as a postseason affair in 2006. “The last four years, coming back from the US, we had quaterfinals games and lost,” noted Ateneo coach Norman Black. “When we came back this year, we still had an elimination game versus La Salle, which we lost. If that was a quarterfinals game, we would have [been eliminated]. We played much better tonight.”

In this game, Slaughter led all scorers with 24 points, part of a double-double with his 14 rebounds. Veteran Blue Eagle guards Emman Monfort and Kirk Long broke out of shooting slumps and combined for 26 points, five triples, six rebounds and eight assists. Kiefer Ravena added nine markers.

Up two, 35-33 near the end of the second quarter, Ateneo scored eight unanswered to stretch its lead to double-digits. The celebration was short lived, though, as Russel Escoto made a wide open basket to pull FEU to within eight, 43-35 at the break.

After halftime, the Blue Eagles came out still looking to score, jumping out to a 6-2 run. At the 6:52 mark of the third quarter, two technical fouls were slapped on FEU mentor Bert Flores for excessive complaining. Flores was ejected from the game, paving the way for Monfort to troop to the line for four charities. The Ilonggo guard made them all and extended the Ateneo lead to its highest, 53-37.

In the final canto, FEU had multiple chances to seize the advantage. A put-back off a Pipo Noundou miss by Aldrech Ramos cut the lead to four, 70-66, but a hook shot from Slaughter and a triple from Ravena increased it to nine. The Tamaraws responded with six unanswered to get within a triple, 75-72, only to convert just one more score, a long deuce by Terrence Romeo, as the stingy Ateneo defense held them to just those two points in the last 3:23 of the game.

Ramos, Slaughter’s teammate on the National Team, and last season’s UAAP MVP, RR Garcia, had 15 points each. Former Rookie of the Year recipients JR Cawaling and Terrence Romeo added 11 apiece for the erstwhile undefeated Tams.

Tournament MVP candidate Pipo Noundou left the game early at the 2:18 mark of the fourth quarter as he fell down awkwardly after a layup attempt. After the game, the Cameroonian was diagnosed with a mild sprain on his left ankle.

Aggressive play by the Blue Eagles got them a 30 to 11 advantage at the line, with Ateneo converting 23 of its 30 foul shots. The Tams’ perimeter defense also made a normally poor-shooting three-point team look spectacular, allowing the blue shirts seven makes on 14 tries.

When asked about their chances against San Beda, Black said, “[They are] one of the best teams in the country. They have the size to match us. We’ll just have to rely on our defense.”

Before they play the Red Lions, however, the Blue Eagles take on the National University Bulldogs in the semifinals of the parallel Father Martin Summer Cup at 2 p.m. at the San Beda gym along Mendiola. W5

The scores:

Ateneo 82 – Slaughter 24, Monfort 15, Long 11, Ravena 9, Salva 8 Chua 6, Sumalinog 5, Golla 2, Erram 2, Austria 0, Gonzaga 0

FEU 74 – Garcia 15, Ramos 15, Cawaling 11, Romeo 11, Exciminiano 7, Noundou 6, Escoto 6, Bringas 2, Knuttel 1, Sentcheu 0, Tolomia 0, Cruz 0

Tamaraws blank Adamson to bag third
by inboundpass
Sunday, 12 June 2011 Views / Be the first one to comment ALDRECH Ramos halted a spirited Adamson Falcons comeback with a booming triple, clinching a third place finish for his Far Eastern University Tamaraws in the 2011 Fil-Oil Flying V Pre-Season Premier Cup last June 12 with a 65-57 victory at the Fil-Oil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The national team big man showcased his improved range by hitting three triples and leading all scorers with 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting. The versatile center also hauled down nine rebounds, issued two assists, and added a steal and a block. UAAP Season 73 MVP RR Garcia had 13 points and five dimes, while last year’s Rookie of the Year Terrence Romeo fired in 10.

For the majority of three quarters, the two teams went back and forth until a 12-6 burst by last year’s UAAP runners-up closed out the third period and saw them lead, 50-44.

Smelling blood in the water, FEU went on a 10-0 blast at the beginning of the fourth to grab its first double-digit lead, 60-44, with back-to-back jumpers by Romeo capping off the run.

Adamson replied with a 10-0 blast of its own and took advantage of FEU’s penalty situation from the 5:51 mark onwards. But with the score at 60-54, Ramos rose up and nailed that long bomb, giving the Falcons a nine-point deficit to climb out of with 1:45 left.

On the ensuing possession, Garcia hit Lester Alvarez on a triple attempt. But the normally steady Falcons floor general could only convert the last of his three charities, making it 63-55 and essentially ending the Falcons’ charge.

Birthday celebrant Eric Camson was the only Falcon in double-digits, finishing with 10 points and four boards. Three Falcons finished with nine points: Alex Nuyles, Jerick Cañada and Alvarez, with the latter adding five rebounds and seven assists as well.

Despite getting a huge advantage in foul shot attempts, 24 to 9, Adamson simply couldn’t piece togther a strong enough comeback, due in part to the team’s 18 turnovers. W5

The scores:

FEU 65 – Ramos 19, Garcia 13, Romeo 10, Exciminiano 7, Escoto 4, Cruz 4, Cawaling 2, Knuttel 2, Bringas 2, Foronda 2, Mendoza 0, Tolomia 0, Sentcheu 0

Adamson 57 – Camson 10, Nuyles 9, Alvarez 9, Cañada 9, Colina 6, Manyara 6, Brondial 4, Lozada 2, Cruz 2, Etrone 0, Cabrera 0

Quarter scoring: 15-12, 32-28, 50-44, 65-57
