Filoil Cup: Tams to lean on talented backcourt

MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern University, twice runner-up to Ateneo in the UAAP the last two years, hopes to come out on top this time with a team teeming with talent.

The Tamaraws are raring to showcase their stuff right in the 2012 Filoil Flying V Pre-Season Hanes Cup, presented by Bostik Phils., Inc. unfolding next month with former UAAP MVP RR Garcia teaming up anew with Terrence Romeo and the vastly improved Mike Tolomia.

Easily, they form the most formidable backcourt combination in the ranks, making the Morayta cagers one of the early favorites in the upcoming pre-season tournament beginning April 14 at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

FEU, however, lost a few good men who operate around the paint, including Chris Excaminiano, Jens Knuttel, Pipo Noundou, JR Cawaling, John Foronda and Aldrech Ramos.

But FEU coach Bert Flores is confident the likes of Carl Cruz, Russell Escoto, Mark Bringas and Roger Pogoy will step up and provide the needed inside strength and threat.

But while FEU still looks formidable with their host of shooters, University of the East continues to build from scratch after turning in a dismal seventh place finish in last year’s UAAP.

Second year coach Jerry Codiñera, however, is upbeat of their chances heading to the pre-season Filoil Flying V Hanes Cup tourney, held in cooperation with Total Phils and supported by major backers BDO, Bayo and Molten, the official ball.

“Again, I consider our team to still be underdogs but we’ll do the necessary things to improve our season this time around with more maturity and familiarity,’’ said Codiñera.

The Warriors lost three key players in Paul Zamar, Biboy Enguio and Lucas Tagarda to graduation, and are left with holdovers Lord Casajeros, Roy Sumang, John Noble and upstart BJ Zosa.

Another team to watch out in the pre-season is National University, which placed fifth in the last year’s UAAP.

The Bulldogs will still rely on last year’s UAAP MVP awardee Bobby Ray Parks Jr., with teammates Emmanuel Mbe, Glenn Khobuntin, Cedric Labing-isa, Denice Villamor, Jeff Javillonar and Joseph Terso expected to provide added firepower.

‘’We all know what we can get from him (Parks). It’s now about the other players fitting well,” said NU coach Eric Altamirano.

FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup bares sked

Collegiate hoops begins its comeback on April 14, when the UAAP four-peat champions Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles and the NCAA back-to-back titlists San Beda College Red Lions figure in the opening day of the 2012 FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup.

The schedule, released first online on the collegiate hoops website Inboundpass, has Ateneo taking on Kevin Alas and the rest of the Letran Knights in the first game of the 2012 incarnation of the tournament at 2 p.m., San Beda battling a Jeron Teng-reinforced La Salle Green Archers at 4 p.m., and the JRU Heavy Bombers clashing against the NU Bulldogs at 6 p.m., after a 1 p.m. opening ceremony on April 14, at the San Juan Arena.

One of the most notable features of the tourney is the fact that UAAP teams go up against NCAA squads, and this year is no exception, with all 18 colleges and universities from the two leagues participating.

Divided into two divisions of nine teams each, Group A has Ateneo, La Salle, Letran, San Beda, the Mapua Cardinals, the University of Perpetual Help Altas, the UE Red Warriors, the UP Fighting Maroons and the UST Growling Tigers.

Group B meanwhile features NU, JRU, the Adamson University Falcons, the Arellano University Chiefs, the EAC Generals, the FEU Tamaraws, the Lyceum of the Philippines Pirates, and San Sebastian College Golden Stags, and the College of St. Benilde Blazers.

Each team will play against all of their groupmates, with the four squads with the best record in each division advancing to a single elimination, cross-over bracket to the Finals.

Like in the two mother leagues, only one foreign player per team may be on the court at a certain time. But in contrast to last season, only players eligible to be fielded in the upcoming UAAP or NCAA season can be added to the roster, disqualifying players who have just begun their residency period.

The Blue Eagles notched their first championship in the tournament last year, beating the Red Lions in the Finals, 75-56. - KBK, GMA News

FilOil: Bulldogs rip Tamaraws for second win

The National University Bulldogs notched their second victory in the FilOil Flying V Pre-season Cup on Friday, taking a bite out of the debuting Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 85-74 at the Arena in San Juan

Second-year swingman Bobby Ray Parks led an impressive scoring display from his team. The reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player exploded for 29 points and 9 rebounds on 11 for 16 shooting, using a variety of driving moves and draining long jumpers with ease. Forward Denice Villamor and rookie Mark de Guzman complimented Parks' output with 15 points apiece.

Entering this year with the loss of several major figures including Aldrech Ramos and JR Cawaling, FEU is still searching for offensive cohesion. The Morayta-based squad had no answers for the Bulldogs' imposing zone defense, making only two of 12 three point tries. The Tamaraw backcourt triumvirate of RR Garcia, Terrence Romeo and Chris Tolomia especially struggled to find their shot, shooting a combined 27.3 percent on 9 for 33 shooting.

FEU scored its first points on an alley-oop bucket from RR Garcia to Roger Pogoy as they raced to an early 7-4 lead. The Tams were in attack mode at the dawn of the first quarter with repeated incursions into the lane by guards Terrence Romeo, RR Garcia and Chris Tolomia yielding results. But the Bulldogs closed out the quarter with a 6-1 run to keep the Tamaraws at bay. Parks scored seven points in the opening period and finished the half with 15.

After back to back baskets by Terrence Romeo at the start of the second quarter, Parks immediately checked back in and triggered a decisive run for the Bulldogs. He and center Emmanuel Mbe benefited from their team's stingy defense and crisp ball movement, and combined for a 9-0 run.

Alolino scored five of NU's last seven points to buffer a 42-29 lead at the half. Forward Arvie Bringas was the lone bright spot for FEU after two quarters. The former Green Archer had eight points on 60 percent field goal shooting.

The Bulldogs continued to impose their will on the Tamaraws in the third quarter, limiting them to a game-low 10 points. Offensively, their performance was punctuated by flashy play from guards Gelo Alolino and de Guzman, in addition to four triples from the entire team.

A dunk from FEU center Anthony Hargrove brought the Tams' defense and dribble penetration alive in the fourth quarter. It produced a run that saw more contributions from forward Roger Pogoy and Arvie Bringas, but it was not enough as the Tamaraws could not bring the deficit below eleven points. Pogoy scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half, but Parks shut the door on FEU with a two-handed dunk of his own that resulted in the final score. - AMD, GMA News


The scores:

NU 85: Parks 29, Vilamor 15, De Guzman 15, Alolino 10, Mbe 9, Neypes 4, Javillonar , Rono 0, Celda 0, Singh 0, Labing-isa 0

FEU 74: A. Bringas 13, Pogoy 12, Romeo 11, Tolomia 9, Garcia 8, M. Bringas 8, Hargrove 6, Foronda 3, Belo 2, Mendoza 2, Escoto 0, Jumao-as 0

Parks with 29 points as NU downs FEU in Filoil Pre-season Cup
By Celest R. Flores
INQUIRER.net
7:13 pm | Friday, April 20th, 2012 share107 106MANILA, Philippines – Behind a 29-point explosion from Ray Parks Jr., National University thwarted Far Eastern University, 85-74, Friday in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Pre-Season Cup at the San Juan Arena.

The Bulldogs, trying to further bolster their line-up for the coming UAAP season, also found a gem in transferee guard Mark De Guzman who he added 15 points.

With another dominating victory, NU emerged as one of the early contenders in the annual pre-season league with a 2-0 record.

But head coach Eric Altamirano downplayed the victory over the last year’s UAAP finalist FEU, despite NU leading by as huge as 25 points in the third quarter.

“We have to keep in mind this is a pre-season tournament, that’s not yet the real game of FEU,” said Altamirano. “We’re still a work in progress and hopefully we develop the maturity of the players.”

The Tamaraws, who now have bruiser Arvie Bringas in tow after serving his two-year residency, took a fair beating and failed to get anything going in time for a comeback.

Bringas collected 13 points while Roger Pogoy had 12 points and eight boards but former UAAP MVP RR Garcia struggled as he went for 3-of-14 from the field for only eight markers.

After trailing for most of the game, FEU was only able to bring the lead down to 73-85 but with only a little over a minute left to play.

FAR EASTERN’s Anthony Hardgrove (right) tries to stop Lyceum’s Shane Ko in yesterday’s game at the FilOil Flying V Arena. AUGUST DELA CRUZ
Brandishing its awesome firepower, Far Eastern U overwhelmed Lyceum, 72-50, yesterday in a fight-marred game, even as University of Santo Tomas also pulled through in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Hanes Cup.

The Tigers proved steadier down the stretch to repulse the Perpetual Help Altas, 70-66, and barge into the victory column at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

RR Garcia and Arvie Bringas shot 11 points each as the Tamaraws raised their card to 1-1.

The court almost transformed into war zone when FEU guard Terrence Romeo pushed Lyceum’s Faustine Pascual, triggering the scuffle that also involved FEU player Clarence Foronda with three minutes remaining.

Romeo was slapped with an unsportsmanlike foul, along with a disqualifying foul, leading to his ejection, while Foronda was also given a disqualifying foul.

Andrei Mendoza, a former Pirate, rushed out of his seat behind the Lyceum bench and into the court, before punching Gryann Mendoza of FEU.

Romeo and Foronda have been slapped with one-game suspensions while Mendoza has been barred from entering the venue. With a report from Randolph Leongson

FilOil: Romeo, Foronda ejected in fight-marred Tams win

The Far Eastern University Tamaraws gored the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates in a 72-54 win that was disrupted by a fight late, Monday, in the FilOil Flying V Pre-season Tournament held at the Arena in San Juan.

With 3:14 left in the game, a scuffle broke out on the floor that saw FEU Tams Terrence Romeo and Clarence Foronda awarded disqualifying fouls, resulting in their ejections. Former UAAP Rookie of the Year Romeo was also assessed an unsportsmanlike foul for his actions.

But in the midst of the confusion on the court, reserve forward Gryann Mendoza of FEU walked away holding the right side of his face. Andrei Mendoza, a former Letran Knight serving out his residency with Lyceum, was identified as the culprit, and the FilOil tourney organizers quickly banned him from entering the game venue for the rest of the year.

Tamaraws head coach Bert Flores suggested that frustration got the best of Romeo, his fiery point guard, who only hit one of his eleven field goals before getting sent to the locker room early. "Masama ang laro niya sa past two games," he said, "So noong nainis, pumutok na."

According to Article 11, Section C of the league's rulebook, players ejected by game officials are automatically suspended for the next game.

The Pirates started on shaky ground, tallying only 14 points while allowing FEU to put up 23 markers.

In the second period, Lyceum went on a 7-1 run courtesy of made baskets by Dexter Zamora, Floricel Guevara and Arwin Azores. FEU in contrast, only managed its first field goal at around the 5:03 mark, courtesy of a right baseline jumper from RR Garcia.

An offensive put-back by Mark Bringas briefly spelled the Tamaraws, but the Pirates' once again held them scoreless, this time for the next three minutes, their defensive effort punctuated by a two-handed block by Joseph Ambohot. Then from defense to offense, Lyceum struck with back to back triples from sniper Gian Mallari.

It wasn't enough however, as former Green Archer Arvie Bringas woke his team up, scoring the final four points for the Tams to hold off the Pirates at the half, 29-32.

FEU came out as a more aggressive team in the third quarter, repeatedly getting scoring opportunities in the paint and they forced Lyceum into the penalty situation just two and a half minutes into the period.

Lyceum's frustration cost them a 12 point deficit in an 11-2 run, with all of FEU's points coming from the charity stripe. FEU clogged the driving lanes and forced Lyceum to shoot over their outstretched arms, limiting the Pirates to only four field goals. That resulted in a 21-8 quarter for FEU, putting them up 53-37 with a period to play.

The Tamaraws pressed on in the final quarter, showing their dominance with Russel Escoto converting on an alley-oop jam. And aside from the melee, FEU managed to go on cruise-control to close out the game.

Despite the blowout win, Flores said his players were still struggling. "Magulo pa kami," said Flores. "Galing kami sa dalawang linggong bakasyon, tapos marami kaming bagong players." Regardless, he gave his assurances that his wards would be prepared for the UAAP opening in two months.

Arvie Bringas and RR Garcia led the the Tams with 11 points each, with Bringas adding nine boards, and Garcia chipping in six dimes. Cris Tolomia also dropped 10 markers on 50 percent shooting from the field.

Floricel Guevarra and Shane Ko had eight points apiece, as the Pirates struggled to connect from the field, making just 18 field goals for 28 percent shooting as a team.

Lyceum dropped to 0-3 after dropping games to Adamson and EAC prior, while FEU evened their record at 1-1. - AMD, GMA News

Tams battle Falcons sans 2 mainstays

MANILA, Philippines - Far Eastern U guns for a second straight victory against an unbeaten Adamson sans its two key players in today’s resumption of the 2012 Filoil Flying V Pre-Season Hanes Cup at The Arena in San Juan City.

The Tams will be playing the Falcons in their 3:30 p.m. encounter minus Terrence Romeo and John Clarence Foronda, who will serve out their one-game suspensions assessed on them for disqualification foul they committed in the fight-marred 72-50 rout of the Lyceum Pirates Monday.

Romeo and Foronda were just two of the three individuals sanctioned by the league after it also banned a fan, Andrei Mendoza, from entering the venue for the rest of the tournament for punching FEU’s Gryann Mendoza without provocation during the melee.

Another win will push FEU closer to Group B leader National U, currently unscathed with a 3-0 (win-loss) record, although it is expected to face roughsailing against an Adamson squad that is also seeking a second win in a row following an 80-64 win also at the expense of Lyceum.

“Adamson is always a tough match up for us, it got tougher because we’ll be playing without two of our key players,” said FEU coach Robert Flores in Filipino.

Letran and La Salle, meanwhile, collide in Group A action of this event presented by Bostik Phils., Inc. in cooperation with Total Phils. Corp with major sponsors Vulcaseal, Kia Motors, TMS Ship Agencies, Inc., Bayo, Molten, BDO, Nature’s Spring and Oxycan.

The Louie Alas-mentored Knights have split their first two outings while the Gie Abanilla-coached Archers are looking for a first victory after dropping their initial assignment when the two clash at 5:15 p.m.

The San Beda Lions, the reigning NCAA champions, lead Group A with a pristine 4-0 record followed by the Ateneo Eagles, the defending UAAP and league champions, with a 3-1 slate.

The absence of Romeo and Foronda will leave FEU relying heavily on RR Garcia and youthful Cris Tolomia from the backcourt and La Salle transferee Arvie Bringas up front against an already formidable and seasoned frontline by Adamson.

FEU relies on backcourt men to beat St. Benilde in Filoil Preseason Cup

8:53 pm | Saturday, May 12th, 2012 share11 11MANILA, Philippines – Far Eastern University relied on its solid backcourt to beat St. Benilde, 74-67, Saturday in the 2012 FilOil Flying V Preseason Hanes Cup at the San Juan Arena.

RR Garcia shot a game-high 22 points on four triples while Cris Tolomia added 11 points, including timely baskets to put the Blazers away.

“Our rebounding has improved but we have to learn how to always share the ball,” said FEU coach Bert Flores.

The Tamaraws kept their hold of second place in Group B with a 3-1 slate.

CSB, despite the absence of its star guard Carlo Lastimosa due to suspension, didn’t go down without a fight as it battled back from a 15-point fourth quarter deficit and moved to within striking distance down the stretch.

Joel Tolentino’s 16 points paced the Blazers, who absorbed their third defeat in four outings.

FilOil: FEU gets win number three behind RR’s 22

The Arena in San Juan announcer Rolly Manlapaz branded Far Eastern University Tamaraws guard Ryan Roose Garcia as “The Rooster,” and cawed like one after each of his baskets.

Manlapaz did a lot of cawing that evening.

Garcia scored 13 of his 22 before halftime and Anthony Hargrove added 13 of his own to lead FEU over the College of St. Benilde Blazers, 74-67 Saturday, in the FilOil Flying V Pre-season Tournament.

FEU kept the lead for most of the game, after Hargrove completed a three-point play to give them a 7-4 edge over the height-challenged Blazers. CSB took the lead only once throughout the forty minutes, after CSB goes on a mini-run led by standout Jonathan Grey and capped off by a Dexter Garcia lay-in.

Hargrove and incoming sophomore Mike Tolomia answered with a run of their own with Hargrove scoring seven and Tolomia chipping in five to complete a 12-0 burst to put a dampener on CSB’s hot streak. Garcia then closed the half with a triple, maintaining a 10-point distance at the half, 44-34.

Tamaraw Terrence Romeo and Blazer Rhoele Maconocido traded barbs early in the third quarter, resulting in double technical fouls for both. An incensed Romeo responded by going for five straight points, with an ankle-breaker that left Maconocido on his heels. After a Romeo triple, FEU led by as much as 16, and continued to maintain it at 15 by the end of the third after another floater by Garcia.

The Blazers came back to life late in the fourth, after a fast break lay-in by Grey drew them within five, 69-64. A three-point play and two pairs of free throws by Mark Romero jumpstarted the blitz, and contributions from former Green Archer point guard Joel Tolentino and Ronnel Lastimosa added to the barrage.

With time winding down however, Blazers head coach Richard Del Rosario resorted to fouling in the dying minutes, but his Blazers weren’t able to convert anything from the field as center Robert Bartolo fumbled on most plays, in no small part to Hargrove’s interior defense. FEU’s free throws further inflated their lead, and a split forward by Gryann Mendoza iced the game at 74-67.

Garcia led FEU with 22 points, including a 3-of-5 shooting clip from deep, while Hargrove scored 13 points and hauled down nine rebounds.

For Benilde, Joel Tolentino shot his way to 16 points against some familiar opponents, followed by Grey with 14 and Romero with 10 of own.

The Tamaraws cruised to their third win of the season while the match handed the Blazers their third loss overall. - AMD, GMA News

The Far Eastern University Tamaraws shook off a turnover-filled start to win big against the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers, 69-52, Friday in the FilOil Flying V Pre-season Tournament at the Arena in San Juan.

Five early FEU turnovers allowed JRU to build a 10-4 advantage, but FEU was able to come right back, getting to within a point on an Arvie Bringas lay-up at the end of the first ten minutes, 16-15.

A 6-0 blast by former Technological Institute of the Philippines Engineer Anthony Hargrove and Terrence Romeo gave the UAAP runners-up the lead for good in the second quarter though, after they broke through a 24-24 tie.

Lay-ups by John Lopez and Romnick Mendoza kept JRU close, but FEU saved their best for the end of the second quarter, exploding for nine unanswered to enter the break, up 41-28.

In the third quarter, JRU managed just seven measly points as the Tams' defense proved formidable. In the latter part of the period, FEU allowed just two free throws, while RR Garcia's fingerprints were all over his side's 13 points in that same span, making it 58-35 with ten minutes left to play.

There wasn't much the Heavy Bombers could do from that point on, though they did eat into the deficit late, closing out the game with a 5-0 blast against the third-stringers of FEU.

Taking stock

After the game, FEU head coach Bert Flores commended his team for a good job on the boards, as they out-hustled their opponents 55-27 on the glass. Rebounds, he said, were a point of emphasis, after defeats to Ateneo in the UAAP Finals and to NU in the first game of their FilOil campaign.

Terrence Romeo torched JRU for 17 points, and he also chipped in five rebounds and three assists. RR Garcia had an off-night from the field, making just 1-of-8 tries from downtown, but he tallied a team-best seven dimes to go with his nine markers.

Big men Mark Bringas and Carl Bryan Cruz added eight each.

JRU drew 12 points and eight rebounds from power forward John Lopez, and 11 scores from point guard Alex Almario, but no other Heavy Bomber scored more than six, including Fil-Am sharpshooter Nate Matute, who missed all five of his triple tries.

The win improved FEU's mark to 4-1, behind the Group B-leading National University Bulldogs who are currently loss-less, versus seven wins. JRU on the other hand, dropped to the .500 mark with a 3-3 slate. — ELR, GMA News

FilOil: San Sebastian Stags outlast FEU Tamaraws
RENEE FOPALAN, GMA News May 31, 2012 8:51pm
3 16Email1ShareThis20
San Sebastian College defeated Far Eastern University, 81-70, to avoid a quarterfinals clash with defending UAAP champions Ateneo in the FilOil Flying V Preseason Cup.

Calvin Abueva scored 21 points in the second half to lead the Golden Stags against the Tamaraws' veteran backcourt tandem of RR Garcia and Terrence Romeo, who struggled to combine for 17 points in 32 attempts from the field.

The two teams started out solid, with the Stags grabbing an early 7-4 lead on a Michael Miranda jumper.

Jon Rebollos' free throws gave the Stags a 12-6 spread. Soon after Abueva comes in, he is called for an unsportsmanlike foul for swinging an elbow at Anthony Hargrove, who played sticky defense against the San Sebastian slotman.

Hargrove's free throws moved FEU within two, 12-10. The Stags, however, remained on top after Miranda's two charities, 18-15, entering the second period.

Ian Sangalang opened up the second quarter with an undergoal stab from a Michael Juico drive and dish to make it 20-15.

Jovit Dela Cruz' back-to-back hits gave the Stags a seven point spread, 24-17, but the Tamaraws woke up, with Roger Pogoy scoring six of FEU's 15 straight markers for a 32-24 edge in favor of the Morayta-based quintet.

Juico responded with a drive and a tough bank shot to stop the bleeding, but he, too, fouls Romeo while the FEU guard was attempting a three-pointer with 3.9 seconds remaining in the first half. Romeo made all three charities for a 35-28 halftime tally.

In the third, the Stags started to outrun the Tams. After two consecutive trips to the line, Abueva pulled San Sebastian within one, 45-43. Michael Miranda hit on an offensive putback and a fadeaway as the Stags regained the lead with less than four minutes left. The exchange continued with the more active Stags finding themselves on top at the end, 55-49.

In the final period, a Rebolllos three-pointer gave the Stags a 60-53 early advantage. But the Tams continued to fight, with Cris Tolomia cutting the deficit to two, 62-60. Abueva then scored six straight to give the Stags some breathing room at 68-60.

A Romeo three and Arvie Bringas' two free throws cut San Sebastian's lead to three with three minutes remaining, 68-65.

But a six-point cluster from Sangalang and Dela Cruz sealed the win for the Stags, 81-70.

Calvin Abueva had 23 points, 10 of them coming from the free throw line. He also collected 11 rebounds, seven assists and had eight turnovers. Ian Sangalang added 17 points, 13 rebounds, two steals, and four blocks.

Romeo had 17 points for FEU with a 5 of 19 shooting clip. Hargrove chipped in 13 points and 14 rebounds, while Garcia struggled with only 10 points, shooting 4-of-13 from the field. — JVP, GMA News

FilOil: Blue Eagles defeat Tamaraws anew, fly into semifinals

After missing last Saturday’s duel against arch-rivals De La Salle, “The Sergeant” went back to work immediately.

Greg Slaughter’s 29-point, 11-rebound performance powered the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles to a win over the Far Eastern University Tamaraws in the FilOil Flying V Preseason Tournament quarterfinals, Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Terrence Romeo and his eight first quarter points kept the game close for the Tams early on, as the UAAP second placers led by a point after 10 minutes, 16-15.

Then it was FEU big man Anthony Hargrove’s turn put on a show in the second period, making three of the four dunks in the quarter. The first one came off a pass from Roger Pogoy, the second one coming off a miss, and the last one a posterizing slam over Blue Eagles center J.P. Erram.

Dunks aside however, things got testy as both teams muscled with each other downlow, which reached its zenith after FEU forward Arvie Bringas received two technical fouls after being caught trash-talking Slaughter and harassing an official for the earlier technical.

With the former DLSU forward ejected, Ateneo was awarded four free throws, two of which Kiefer Ravena made to inch them closer at 31-29, although FEU closed the half in control by three points, 33-30.

Ateneo blitzed out of halftime, as the third period started, going on a 13-2 run until FEU forward Gryann Mendoza hit a three to keep the Tams close at 43-38.

The reigning four-time UAAP champs’ offense continued to click, as a pair of threes from incumbent starting point guard Juami Tiongson and contributions from Slaughter helped the Eagles keep the lead, 51-50, by the end of the third quarter.

Entering the fourth, Blue Eagles bench spark Tonino Gonzaga scored eight points for his team, providing answers to FEU baskets with a lay-in and a pair of triples.

Those baskets gave Ateneo a six-point lead that ballooned all the way until it reached thirteen points, though a split at the line by center Christian Sentcheu, making his first appearance after missing the entire eliminations round, resulted in the final score, 75-63.

The Blue Eagles controlled the tempo of the game, playing on halfcourt sets designed for Slaughter and out-rebounding the Tamaraws, 50-37. FEU tried to compensate by committing less errors, losing the ball just seven times compared to Ateneo’s 11, but they only managed six turnover points, as they were unable to punish the Eagles for their mistakes.

Slaughter’s 29 points came on 11-of-16 field goal shooting and a 7-of-10 clip at the line, in addition to 11 rebounds, two assists and a block. Tiongson added 12 points, while veterans Nico Salva and Tonino Gonzaga had nine each.

“The Phenom” Ravena continued to struggle with his shooting though, producing just six markers on a 2-of-11 night. He compensated though with nine rebounds, second-highest on the team, and a massive seven assists.

FEU was led by former UAAP rookie of the year Terrence Romeo’s 13. Hargrove just missed a double-double, getting 12 points and nine rebounds, while RR Garcia and Cris Tolomia each added eight.

Former UAAP MVP Garcia struggled though, misfiring to the tune of 2-of-13 shooting. He did add six assists and a steal, in 31 minutes of play.

With the win, Ateneo forges a possible UAAP Finals preview, drawing the NU Bulldogs in Saturday’s semifinals. - AMD, GMA News
