Lady Tams seal Finals date with Adamson
Anthony Divinagracia, Tuesday, September 20, 2011.

Manila, Philippines – Far Eastern University (FEU) gave De La Salle University everything it could handle before routing the Lady Archers, 66-44, on Tuesday to set up another Finals meeting with defending champion Adamson University in the 74th UAAP women’s basketball tournament.
Raiza Palmera led the Lady Tamaraws with 17 points while Allana Lim and Camille Sambile added 14 and 11, respectively to punish the lackluster defense of the Lady Archers, who compounded their woes by shooting a woeful 15-of-55 (27.3) percent from the field.
Determined to keep the fourth-seed Lady Archers in their place, the Lady Tamaraws took an early 23-12 headway with Palmera and Lim scoring seven each in the opening quarter.
FEU extended its advantage with a 16-point splurge – eight coming from Sambile – in the second period while limiting La Salle to only nine points.
The Lady Tamaraws relaxed a bit, allowing the Lady Archers to move within 28-38, midway through the third frame.
But that was the closest La Salle could get as Palmera and Lim bombarded the Lady Archers anew in the fourth quarter to seal another Finals date with the three-peat seeking Lady Falcons, who entered the Finals earlier by clawing University of Santo Tomas, 53-45.
Inna Corcuera paced La Salle with 14 points and 10 rebounds while Hannah Viterbo contributed 10 for the Lady Archers, who nipped the twice-to-beat Lady Tamaraws, 57-54, last Sept. 16, to force a winner-take-all encounter.
Game 1 of the women’s finals is set on Saturday, 9 a.m. at the Araneta Coliseum.

The scores:

FEU 66 – Palmera 17, Lim 14, Sambile 11, Borja 9, Columna 8, Valenzona 6, Yazon 1, Siat 0, Rosaldo 0, Supnet 0, Soriano 0, Regidor 0, Albano 0.
DLSU 44 – Corcuera 14, Viterbo 10, Piatos 7, Wilson 6, Abaca 5, Ong 2, Vela 0, Melendres 0, Gonzales 0, Garcia 0, Ramos 0.
Quarter scores: 23-12, 39-21, 46-31, 66-44.

Good luck to Ms. Raiza Palmera. Hope to get your second title. For those curios, here is an album of the team in their game vs DLSU. Palmera is #15. Maganda. So is Wilson of La Salle (#5, the tall 6-1 center) ;D

In women's action, Adamson held FEU scoreless in the final three minutes to steal Game 1 with a 60-56 decision.

The Lady Falcons scored the game's final 11 points to fight back from a 56-49 deficit to move a game away to claiming a third straight women's crown.

Anna Buendia had 18 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and two steals while Snow Peñaranda tallied 17 markers and 12 boards as Adamson seeks to win the crown for the first time without Analyn Almazan, a vital cog in the Lady Falcons' last two title wins.

Almazan is now playing for the national team.

Fria Bernardo had 13 points also for Adamson.

Allana Lim led the Lady Tams, who entered the finals as the top seed, with 17 points while Raiza Palmera and Karen Columna added 15 and 10 markers each. — JVP, GMA News

I think this is the last year of Palmera of FEU. The best SHOOTER I have seen so far in the UAAP. Ang ganda ng form niya (and of course pati rin siya). WILL MAKE THE NATIONAL TEAM IN THE FUTURE.

Palmera's shooting form, very elegant (and pumapasok yan). And if she scored a big shot, she will clenched her fist.

^ The Sambile of FEU is the Camille Sambile who used to play for AMA? How many years can she play in the UAAP?

There will be Games 3 for both the Juniors and the Women.

Apparently both games were played through before the UAAP decided to postpone the Men's Game 2.

NU beat FEU FERN, while FEU beat Adamson, as both divisions go to a Game 3 this Sunday 2 October at the Arena in San Juan.

If I could recall, there have never been a Game 3 for the Lady Tams in their Finals trilogy against the Lady Falcons? The question for FEU is would they got their revenge after three years. And will Raisa Palmera clinch her second title (she get her first against us :( ).

Whoever won, panalo na ang Philippine Women's Basketball team. Recently, we have won the SEA crown. Remember it is the batch of Sandel, Palmera, Mangahas et. al. who led the RP Women's Youth team to a historic finish in the FIBA Asia U-19 tourney. Their entry would began a new era in Philippine Women's Basketball and I can't wait to see them play.

But I hope Raisa Palmera and co will go for their crown. They are ripe for this.

Palmera powers Lady Tams to UAAP title
Josiah Israel Albelda

Even as she sang her swan song in the UAAP, Raiza Palmera proved once more that she is, indeed, the league's Most Valuable Player.
With their foes breathing down their necks in the fourth, Palmera rose to the occassion, banking in seven points in a 9-0 spurt that restored order in Far Eastern University's 68-57 shellacking of dethroned Adamson University in Game 3 of their finals series today.
The Lady Tamaraws waxed hot in the second quarter and limited the Lady Falcons to a measly three points to take a 37-14 lead at halftime.
A trey by the Morayta-based squad padded it to 40-14 as FEU looked invincible in giving the two-time defending champions a neat beatdown.
But Adamson showed why it has reigned the women's circuit the past couple of years, gradually clawing back and closing in at 50-43 after a 29-10 blast, 7:24 left in the match.
Then came Palmera.
The guard, who also helped the Lady Tamaraws cop the crown in 2008, drilled in back-to-back jumpers, fed Finals MVP Allana Lim for a tweener then hit a three-pointer of her own in a 9-0 run that put the game out of hand.
Palmera would finish with 24 points while the burly Lim scored 19 markers and hauled down nine eight rebounds.
"We were just hungry," coach Allan Albano, who was the top lieutenant when FEU lost two consecutive finals stints to the Lady Falcons.
Snow Penaranda led Adamson with 16 points and 19 boards even as Angel Ortega added 14 markers and six rebounds.

The scores:
FEU (68) - Palmera 24, Lim 19, Columna 14, Borja 5, Valenzona 2, Yazon 2, Sambile 0, Tiu 0, Supnet 0
Adamson (57) - Penaranda 16, Ortega 14, Buendia 13, Bernardo 6, Balasta 5, De Leon 2, Taroja 1, Avila 0, Versoza 0, Taller 0
Quarters: 19-11, 37-14, 48-34, 68-57

Congratulations to Raisa Palmera. As I have predicted and said to you last year (salamat sa pagpicture sa akin nun), you are the MVP. Last year mo na nga pala. Congrats in your stint in the National team. Sure slot ka dun with your complete skills.
