Caption:Defending champion NU rode on the game-long brilliance of main man Ralph Atangan to debut on a winning note.Defending champion National University (NU) rode on the game-long brilliance of main man Ralph Atangan on Wednesday to sneak past De La Salle Zobel, 80-74, and jumpstart its campaign with a flourish in the 75th UAAP juniors basketball tournament at the San Juan Arena.

Atangan, last season’s Finals MVP, racked up 25 points including back-to-back baskets in the final 4:31 of the contest to give NU a 73-64 lead that buffered the impact of Zobel’s last-ditch offensive. The 5’10 Atangan also grabbed six rebounds and issued three assists to lead three Bullpups in double figures.

First year guard Hubert Cani, a member of National under-16 squad, scored 15 markers while fellow newcomer Reggienal Morido threw his weight around the paint en route to a double-double debut of 14 points and 10 rebounds.

With Morido patrolling the lanes, the Bulldogs claimed a 46-29 rebounding edge against the Junior Archers who took a slim 14-11 margin in assists.

Third year court general Henri Subido snipped for 20 points to lead the Junior Archers while Joaquin Banzon and Alexander Saubier, who conspired in a 6-0 blitz that pushed Zobel within 70-73 with 2:38 left in the fourth quarter, chipped in 14 and 13 respectively.

Far Eastern University (FEU)-FERN, which the Bullpups disposed of in last season’s Finals, also barged into the win column with a 69-58 victory over foremer three-peat champion Ateneo de Manila University.

Season 74 MVP Jerie Pingoy tallied 17 points, seven assists, seven rebounds, three steals, and two blocks to underscore a virtuoso performance for the Baby Tamaraws who clinched their biggest lead at 58-36 with 7:37 in the fourth period.

Yet the Eaglets responded with a 16-2 blast to narrow the gap, 53-60 with 2:46 left before Pingoy scored six points in a 10-5 exchange that dashed Ateneo’s comeback hopes for good.
Rookie Antonio Asistio paced the Eaglets with 14 points.

University of Santo Tomas for its part out-steadied University of the Philippines Integrated School down the stretch to prevail, 77-73.

The Tiger Cubs got a big lift from rookie Prince Martin who tossed in 18 points while Vaughn Soriano and Alvin Ungria added 15 and 11 respectively. Soriano hauled 14 boards to cop a double-double.

Early in the day, Adamson University subdued University of the East, 73-67, behind the 19-point, 10-rebound output of fourth-year forward Alwin Margallo.

The Lady Tamaraws relied on good ball movement in the first half to race to an early advantage, which they were able to maintain throughout the contest.

Camille Sambile put on a scintillating performance for a game-high 24 points to lead FEU to the win while Lore Rivera paced UST with 13 points and 8 rebounds.

Allan Albano, who took over coaching duties from Mike Oliver, was delighted to earn his first win for the Lady Tams.

“Masaya kasi pressure na nung nanalo yung Juniors. Naka 1-0 na ang Juniors, 1-0 na rin ang Seniors. Ako nalang ang hinihintay mag 1-0 eh. Masaya ako. Masyang-masaya.”

In the second game, the Lady Falcons fell short of completing an inspiring comeback as the Lady Archers utilized a 5-0 run to clinch the win.

Adamson was able to claw back from a 15 point deficit late in the second period to cut the lead to just three points, 55-52, 1:15 left in the fourth quarter.

However, Ara Abaca responded with a fastbreak layup and a three point shot by Hannah Viterbo moments later sealed the win for DLSU.

FEU continues mastery of men's beach volleyball
By Donjie Carreon Posted Sep 2nd 2012

Far Eastern University won its 20th consecutive match in men's beach volleyball.
Putting the Red Warriors before a rampaging two-man Tamarraw stampede is not the best way to stop the charge.
Reigning men’s beach volleyball champion Far Eastern University (FEU) proved this on Saturday as it closed in on its third straight elimination round sweep in UAAP Season 75 by thumping University of the East (UE) in straight sets at the latter’s Caloocan sand court.



FEU was never threatened in the game as it displayed its offensive and defensive prowess that has allowed it to rule the tournament unmolested for the past two seasons.



After taking the first set 21-16, FEU’s Arvila Avila and Karl de la Calzada quickly asserted control in the next by building a 12-5 lead using a mix of spikes, blocks and soft knuckle shots. UE’s Karl Justine Roque and Milover Parlon answered by each scoring spikes, but this provoked FEU to score six straight points, two coming off blocks by de la Calzada.



UE again fought back stringing together seven straight to make it 18-14. The Red Warriors, however, committed two more miscues between a hit by FEU for the final count, 21-14.



The win increased FEU’s winning streak to four and extended the Tamarraws’ victories to 20 dating back to Season 73. UE, meanwhile, tied with Adamson at fourth place with its 2-2 record.



The victory also further raised FEU’s confidence, with its coach admitting that the team is not just looking to dominate this season.



“Ang target talaga namin tatlong sunod na championship para grand slam, pero sa tingin ko kaya hanggang apat at lima [because we are already preparing the next set of players,]” FEU coach Joseph Santos told UAAPSports in an interview.



Santos added that the team is setting its eyes on another sweep to initiate a stepladder format, where FEU gets a thrice-to-beat advantage that will make it harder for other teams to unseat the Tamarraws.



The FEU coach said he is not afraid of his team succumbing to pressure or overconfidence due to the duo’s experience.



“Matagal na sila magkasama. Kaya na nila i-handle yun. Injury na lang talaga ang kalaban namin,” he said.



In other matches, National University (NU) defeated runner-up UST, 21-16 and 21-17, to improve at second place. NU improved to 3-1, while UST dropped to sixth with a 1-3 record.



Adamson University further buried winless Ateneo de Manila, 21-11 and 21-16, while De La Salle University kept pace with NU by escaping University of the Philippines, 21-14,19-21 and 15-11.

The Growling Tigers handily won in their first two assignments with a pair of identical 5-2 victories over University of the East and Ateneo to grab the early lead with a 2-0 card.

Powered by Winlove dela Cerna, Season 72′s top rookie, the Lady Tamaraws made short work of the Lady Eagles, 6-1.

Reigning men’s MVP Dane Pio de Roda led the onslaught of UST, the 10-time champion which is trying to repeat its unbeaten run last year.

In other men’s results, 2010 champion La Salle whipped Ateneo, 5-2, UP stunned Season 74 third-placer FEU, 4-3, and UE gave tournament newcomer National University a rude welcoming, 6-1.

Posing as a big threat to FEU’s reign, La Salle scored a couple of shutouts after the Lady Archers blanked the Lady Warriors, 7-0, and the Lady Bulldogs, 7-0.

Behind the efforts of returning Jade Zafra, the 11-time titlist Tigresses walloped University of the Philippines, 6-1. The Tigresses are looking to bounce back from their fourth-place finish last year.

The Lady Maroons though, got back to their feet after getting staggered by the Tigresses as they delivered a 7-0 win over the Lady Eagles.

FEU-Diliman took advantage of Adamson’s inability to take care of the basketball by scoring 21 points off the Baby Falcons’ 19 turnovers. The second quarter was crucial for the Baby Tams as they held Adamson to just 4 points while scoring 25 in that quarter alone.

FEU-Diliman is now 12-0 and just two wins away from an elimination round sweep which would give them an outright Finals berth armed with a thrice-to-beat advantage.

Adamson remained at 7th place in the team standings with a 2-11 record.

FEU Baby Tamaraws near outright UAAP finals berth
By Mark Giongco
INQUIRER.net

7:04 pm | Wednesday, September 19th, 2012
MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University-Diliman moved to within a win away from an automatic finals berth after defeating also-ran La Salle-Zobel, 71-56, Wednesday in the UAAP Season 75 juniors basketball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan city.

But it won’t be a walk in the park for the Baby Tamaraws to nail that rare “thrice-to-beat” incentive. Not with the defending champions National University Bullpups standing in their way.

NU and FEU will go at it on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

Reigning MVP Jerie Pingoy played second fiddle this time, with Jose Domingo leading the Baby Tamaraws with 26 points.

Pingoy, though, still contributed 20 points, five rebounds and four assists for FEU, which remained unstoppable in 13 games.

NU, behind John Cauilan’s double-double of 26 points and 11 rebounds, downed University of the East, 86-78, for its 12th win in 13 outings.

Meanwhile, Ateneo secured the last semifinals berth with an 86-64 rout of Adamson.

Antonio Asistio pumped in 18 points for the Blue Eaglets, who remained in fourth place with an 8-5 slate.

Nicko Bahia flirted with a double-double with 12 points and eight rebounds to lift University of Santo Tomas over UP Integrated School, 61-52.

The Tiger Cubs upped their win-loss record to 9-4 for third place.

The Junior Archers formally bowed out of contention with their fifth loss in 13 assignments, along with the Junior Maroons (3-10), the Baby Falcons (2-11), and the Junior Warriors (0-13).

THREE-PEAT FOR UP. The University of the Philippines shows off its winning form as it tops the UAAP Cheerdance Competition for the third straight year. Photo by JASMINE PAYO/Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines — Even a major error in its final stunt couldn’t stop the University of the Philippines pep squad from reigning in the UAAP Cheerdance Competition, becoming champions for the third straight year.

The eigh-time champions stayed true to their theme of “freedom and equality” as everyone in the squad, even the women performers, went bald for Saturday’s event at the Mall of Asia Arena.

It was actually the second “three-peat” for UP – the last from 1999 to 2001.

They also tied the University of Sto. Tomas with the most number of titles.

The UP pep squad’s overall performance, with its ingenious dance moves, was enough to bring home the crown despite a fall by one of the dancers in its final stunt.

The Far Eastern University’s fierce and wild performance, which gave the crowd the feel of the jungle, was good for first runner-up – an improvement from its last year’s third place finish.

UP fans show their support for their pep squad, forming the bulk of the 19, 509 spectators that filled up the Mall of Asia Arena for the UAAP cheerdance competition Saturday, Sept. 22, 2012. CELEST FLORES/INQUIRER.net

The National University Pep Squad’s Disney-inspired routine, meanwhile, got a happy ending as it barged into the top three for the first time.

It was a festive Brazilian carnival-themed performance for the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe that missed out on a chance to remain the only squad in history to bag eight titles.

This year also marked the back-to-back losses for Salinggawi,, which finished fourth again.

The DLSU Animo Squad packed a punch but failed to score a knockout with its boxing-inspired performance, missing out on the top three honors after a first runner-up finish last year.

As far as the Ateneo Blue Babble Battalion, with their sleek black, blue and white costume, is concerned, not even Voltes V could save them from a sixth place finish.

The Adamson Pep Squad tried to win the judges over with a K-pop performance “Gangnam Style” but could only muster seventh place.

The University of the East Pep Squad rocked The Arena with their red cape and blonde “do” but ended last.

Lady Tams sweep elimination round
By Anton Roxas Posted Sep 24th 2012

Far Eastern University barged into the Finals after sweeping the elimination round of the women's basketball tournament.

Far Eastern University held off a desperate challenge by National University to win 58-50 in the last game of the elimination round in the Women’s basketball tournament of UAAP Season 75 held Sunday, September 23, 2012 at the Araneta Coliseum. More importantly, the Lady Tamaraws earned an outright Finals berth with a thrice-to-beat advantage.

Last year’s Finals MVP Allana Lim led the defending champions with a game-high 23 points. Soc Borja also contributed largely to the Lady Tams’ cause by scattering 14 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists.

The Lady Bulldogs held a five-point lead, 13-8 early in the second period. It was also their biggest lead of the game. That seemingly woke up FEU as they went on an 11-0 run to take advantage 19-13 with 8 of those points coming from Lim.

But, NU bounced back, reclaiming the lead at 32-30 after a basket by Carmina Laquindanum at the 1:35 mark of the third quarter. This would be the last shining moment for the Lady Bulldogs as the Lady Tams’ once again went on a run, this time scoring 8 straight points with 5 courtesy of Borja. At that point, FEU was up 38-32 and never looked back.

FEU is now in the Finals for the fifth straight year and they are also the first team in the history of the UAAP Women’s division to have earned an outright Finals berth and a thrice-to-beat advantage.

With the loss, NU finished the elimination round with a 7-7 record, identical to that of Ateneo de Manila University. The two teams will square off in a knockout game to earn the right to face Adamson University, who finished 3rd with a 10-4 record. The winner would advance to the Semifinals where De La Salle University, who finished at second place with an 11-3 record, will be waiting armed with a twice-to-beat advantage.

Bullpups and Baby Tams set-up title rematch
By Anton Roxas Posted Oct 1st 2012




Far Eastern University and National University won their respective Final Four assignments to arrange a rematch of last year's Juniors Finals.

Far Eastern University-Diliman’s quest to capture its first ever Juniors title was preserved after they edged Ateneo de Manila University, 70-67 in their Final Four matchup in the 75th Season of the UAAP held last Sunday, September 30, 2012 at the Arena in San Juan City. Defending champion, National University also booked their return ticket to the Finals after dismantling the University of Sto. Tomas, 78-66.

The Blue Eaglets failed to capitalize on several opportunities in the endgame to change their fortunes. With 1:27 to go in the contest, the Baby Tamaraws came off a timeout leading 69-65 and faced an intense Ateneo press that led to a Thirdy Ravena steal. Ravena quickly found Mike Nieto for a fastbreak bucket to cut the lead to just two points, 69-67.

On the other end, Woo You missed a triple to give the Blue Eaglets a chance to tie the ballgame or take the lead. Ravena drove hard to the basket and was forced to put up a wild shot that hit the backboard hard. As the ball ricocheted off to the other direction, Mike Nieto jumped up for the offensive rebound but misfired on the putback.

With a chance to seal the game, FEU-Diliman could only manage to have its number one option, Jerie Pingoy dribble the ball at the top of the key and hoist up a long three as time expired. Pingoy’s shot missed the mark badly, giving Ateneo another golden opportunity. But, once again, the Blue Eagles just couldn’t catch a break as Anton Asistio’s three point shot rattled out.

Joshua Aguilon was then fouled and sent to the line with just 9.6 seconds remaining in the game. He missed the first and converted on his second try to give FEU-Diliman a three point advantage, 70-67. Ateneo Head Coach Joe Silva then called a timeout to set up their last attempt at survival.

Moments later, the Blue Eaglets found Aaron Black on the left corner for a game-tying triple. The shot fell short and although Ateneo got the offensive rebound, there was little time left as Asistio rushed another triple attempt that misfired.

FEU-Diliman is back in the Finals for the fourth time in the last seven years. However, they have not been able to win at the big dance despite winning the first game of the Finals on two separate occasions, including last year against NU.

In UAAP Season 74, the Baby Tamaraws won Game 1, 71-67 before losing two straight games to the Bullpups, who captured their second Juniors title overall.

The UAAP Season 75 Juniors Basketball Finals is scheduled to take place on Sunday, October 7, 2012 at 3:30 P.M. at the Arena in San Juan.

Box scores:

First game:

FEU-Diliman 70 – Pingoy 19, Aguilon 19, Domingo Jos. 10, You 6, Palacio 5, Delfinado 5, Escoto 3, Domingo Joh. 2, Domingo R. 1, Magbuhos 0, Completo 0, Hassan 0, Belgica 0, Lee Yu 0.

ADMU 67 – Nieto Mi. 16, Asistio 12, Nieto Ma. 10, Ravena 8, Gamboa 8, Puno 5, Escaler 4, Capacio 4, Vitangcol 0, Mendoza 0, Black 0.

Quarter scoring: 10-10, 29-30, 50-48, 70-67.

La Salle gals forge hoop title showdown with FEU

By Jasmine W. Payo

Philippine Daily Inquirer

10:40 pm | Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

La Salle arranged a title showdown with the unbeaten Far Eastern University in women’s basketball as University of Santo Tomas completed a rare sweep in judo in recent UAAP action.

Aracelie Abaca had an all-around game of 20 points, 18 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and a couple of blocks as the Lady Archers downed Adamson, 81-73, in the semifinals to advance to the championship for the first time in 10 years yesterday at Filoil Flying V Arena.

UST, meanwhile, captured the men’s, women’s and juniors judo crowns behind Most Valuable Players Al Rolan Llamas and Jewel de Castro over the weekend at Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

The Tigers amassed 51 points to cop their second straight title, while the Tigresses extended their reign to three seasons after topping with 53 points. The Tiger Cubs also scored a breakthrough by snapping Ateneo’s six-year reign.

La Salle faces the formidable FEU squad, which holds a huge thrice-to-beat advantage, in the women’s cage Finals starting this Sunday.

The Lady Tamaraws earned the incentive along with an an outright title berth after sweeping the 14-game eliminations.

Lim helps Lady Tams move closer to perfect season
By Olmin Leyba, The Philippine Star
Posted at 10/07/2012 9:12 PM | Updated as of 10/07/2012 9:12 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- MVP shoo-in Allana Lim waxed hot in the payoff period as spotless Far Eastern University (FEU) tripped La Salle, 64-56, Sunday to pull within a triumph of a perfect championship season in the 75th UAAP women's basketball finals at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

Lim, who topped the statistical points race, fired 10 of her 17 points in the fourth to lead the Lady Tams' breakaway to their 15th straight win after a sweep of the elims, earning the distinction of being the first basketball team in the league to go 15-0 in a season.

The Lady Tams, who enjoy thrice-to-beat finals incentive owing to their elims sweep, will try to put the punctuation mark to an immaculate title run with a title-clinching 16th victory on Thursday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

"We need one more win. As I've been telling them everytime we win games, we don't have the right to celebrate yet. Not until we win the crown," FEU coach Allan Albano said in Filipino.

He said they expect the Lady Archers to give them a tough time in the second game.

"We'll be ready for the second game. We'll prepare hard, especially knowing La Salle's determination to bounce back and their proven system,"said Albano, looking to give FEU its second straight diadem and 11th overall.

After a scoreless stint in the first half, Lim asserted herself in the last 20 minutes, doing the most damage in a 9-2 salvo that gave FEU a 58-49 cushion entering the last 4:57.

Lim was hampered by cramps in the stretch but Soc Borja (13 markers, five steals) and Camille Sambile (11 points, 12 rebounds) took the cudgels and put the finishing touches to FEU's conquest.

Trisha Piatos paced the Lady Archers with 15 points while Aracelie added a double-double effort of 10 makers and 12 boards.

The scores:

FEU 64 - Lim 17, Borja 13, Columna 12, Sambile 11, Gesalan 5, Soriano 2, Siat 2, Tanaman 2, Supnet 0.

DLSU 56 - Piatos 15, Abaca 10, Viterbo 9, Wilson 7, Melendres 5, Santos 4, Garcia 4, Ong 2, Corcuera 0

Baby Tams collar Bullpups, draw first blood
By Olmin Leyba, The Philippine Star
Posted at 10/07/2012 9:14 PM | Updated as of 10/07/2012 9:14 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- Roger Domingo hit a booming triple as FEU-Diliman survived the limited stint of MVP Jerie Pingoy in a hard-earned 78-77 victory Sunday over defending juniors champion National University (NU) Bullpups that moved the Baby Tams closer to the plum.

Domingo's clutch shot from the beyond the arc capped a gutsy fightback by the Baby Tams from seven points down in the last 3:07, with Joshua Aguilon (11 points) filling in for Pingoy, who struggled with 16. Pingoy sat out the first three minutes of the fourth due to injury and was hobbled with foul trouble when he came back in, fouling out with 1:07 left.

"We just focused on our defense since we're having difficulty making shots. Pingoy struggled, fouled out and fortunately, Aguilon stepped up. Even though we're down by seven, we never gave up on defense, believing we can still do it," said Baby Tams coach Michael Oliver.

He said Pingoy's disqualification was a blessing in disguise. "NU's defense was thrown off in the crucial part since they didn't know who would take charge without Pingoy," he added.

Joel Lee Yu backstopped Pingoy with 12 points while Domingo, Aguilon and Jeson Delfinado had 11 apiece for the Baby Tams, who will go for the clincher on Thursday.

Raphael Atangan fired 23 points for NU, but he couldn't get hold of the leather in NU's final offensive against Lee Yu, sealing their downfall.

FEU 78 - Pingoy 16, Lee Yu 12, Delfinado 11, R. Domingo 11, Aguilon 11, J. Domingo 8, Escoto 4, Completo 2, Belgica 2, Lumba 1, You 0, Palacio 0.

NU 77 - Atangan 23, Morido 16, Cani 16, Busa 10, Battad 6, Lapiz 4, Canaynay 2, Mosqueda 0, dela Cruz 0, Claveria 0, Cauilan 0, Castillo 0, Biteng 0, Banawan 0.

Quarterscores: 15-12, 40-31, 50-55, 78-77.

I thought the baby Tams have the same malady as our Mens team. Becoming obsolete in the 2nd half. After leading by 11 points in the 1st half, we allowed the Puppuies to 24 points in the 3rd while we scored only 10. I thought, eto na naman.

But we stayed with NU. In the latter part of the 4th, NU is still up, and to add to our woes, Jerry Pingoy suffered an injury. Domingo, Aguilon and Lee YU saved the day for the Tams. Delfinado should work on his FT. In the dying minutes, NU up by 4 points, Aguilon scored a Kobe Bryant type of a shot. We made a defensive stop and Domingo drilled in a trey to give FEU a 1 point lead. NU fumbled on the inbound and was stolen by Lee Yu.

Busa pulled a fast one on Pingoy by slightly kicking him on the leg.

Atangan, Cani and Battad are all great plyers for NU.

I love Lee YU. The spark plug.

FEU for the crown

Far Eastern closes in on cage title double

By Jasmine W. Payo

FAR Eastern University inched closer to a double UAAP basketball title romp yesterday.

The Lady Tamaraws moved within a win of a perfect season while the Baby Tams survived a thriller to take a 1-0 lead in the juniors championship series yesterday at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Allana Lim fired all her 17 points in the second half as the Lady Tamaraws downed the La Salle Lady Archers, 64-56, and stretched their unbeaten run to a record 15 games in the women’s caging.

Roger Domingo was the hero in juniors action, nailing the game-winning triple with 11.8 seconds left to lift the Baby Tams past the defending champion National University Bullpups, 78-77, in the series opener.

The Baby Tams pulled it off minus Jerie Pingoy in the crucial stretch as the back-to-back MVP fouled out in the final minute after a team-high 16 points, four assists and five steals.

“It was a blessing in disguise because they (Bullpups) didn’t know who will take the shot,” said FEU coach Michael Oliver.

Joshua Aguilon fueled the Baby Tams’ rally from eight points down, 63-71, in the last three minutes by firing all but two of his 11 points in the final period.

The Bullpups fumbled their last play after Reggie Morido gave NU its final taste of the lead, 77-75.

Lim shot 10 of the Lady Tamaraws’ 21 points in the final quarter where they pulled away, 62-53.

Aside from setting the longest win run in league history, the Lady Tams moved a win from becoming the first team to complete a season sweep since the Final Four format was implemented in 1994.

“We’re so pressured because there are a lot of things that go into your head after the 14-0 [elimination sweep],” said FEU coach Allan Albano.

The Lady Tamaraws and the Baby Tams hope to lift FEU’s basketball campaign after its favored men’s team surprisingly missed out on the Final Four for the first time in five years.

Meanwhile, University of Santo Tomas coach Pido Jarencio may just get away with a warning following his outburst against the referees in Game 1 of the men’s basketball championship won by Ateneo, 83-78, last Saturday.

League commissioner Ato Badoloato is set to decide early this week if Jarencio’s cut-throat gestures and furious confrontation with the referees after the game will merit a sanction.

“He may get a warning but it will still depend on the board,” said Badolato. “There’s no decision yet.”

The Lady Tamaraws earned an outright title berth and a thrice-to-beat bonus as incentives for sweeping the eliminations.

Thus, the Lady Tamaraws only need to win twice while the Lady Archers must win three times to clinch the title.

The scores:

First Game (Women)

FEU 64—Lim 17, Borja 13, Columna 12, Sambile 11, Gesalan 5, Soriano 2, Siat 2, Tanaman 2, Supnet 0.

LA SALLE 56—Piatos 15, Abaca 10, Viterbo 9, Wilson 7, Melendres 5, Santos 4, Garcia 4, Ong 2, Corcuera 0.

Quarters: 9-8, 18-21, 43-41, 64-56

Second Game (Jrs)

FEU 78—Pingoy 16, Lee Yu 12, Delfinado 11, R. Domingo 11, Aguilon 11, J. Domingo 8, Escoto 4, Completo 2, Belgica 2, Lumba 1, You 0, Palacio 0.

NU 77—Atangan 23, Morido 16, Cani 16, Busa 10, Battad 6, Lapiz 4, Canaynay 2, Mosqueda 0, Dela Cruz 0, Claveria 0, Cauilan 0, Castillo 0, Biteng 0, Banawan 0.

Quarters: 15-21, 40-31, 50-55, 78-77

Lady Tams trip Lady Archers, complete perfect run
By Josiah Albelda Posted Oct 11th 2012

Far Eastern University completed a perfect run to the UAAP 75 women's basketball title as they beat De La Salle Unviersity in Game 2 of the Finals.

Perfect.

Far Eastern University completed an unbeaten run to the championship after disposing of De La Salle University, 70-66, in their 75th UAAP women's basketball tournament finals series Thursday morning at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Lady Tamaraws engaged the Lady Archers in a fierce battle before a quick 5-0 spurt gave them enough cushion to seal the win late in the game.

After Hannah Viterbo tied the game with a triple, Vangie Soriano responded with a connection from rainbow territory of her own before a Camille Sambile basket put them up, 64-59, with two minutes left.

La Salle star Ara Abaca scored off a hook shot to trim the gap to three but season MVP Allana Lim fittingly ended her career for FEU by dooming the Lady Archers' hopes with two free throws, 66-61.

Viterbo drilled in three free-throws but the Taft-based squad could not pull off a defensive gem as the Lady Tamaraws annexed their 11th crown in UAAP history, tied for the most with University of Santo Tomas.

"Sobrang pressured talaga," said coach Allan Albano, who won his second championship in as many years at the helm. "Trabaho, dasal at talagang naniwala lang kami sa sistema namin."

Lim poured in 15 points and 12 rebounds even as Sambile shone bright in the Last Dance with 16 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks.

Marilourd Borja, who was named Finals MVP, chipped in with another all-around performance of 14 markers, five boards, seven assists, four steals and a swat while Soriano had 12 points and six rebounds.

On the other hand, Piatos led La Salle with 16 points and two steals and Abaca struggled once more to finish with 12 points and five rebounds.

The scores:

FEU (70) - Sambile 16, Lim 15, Borja 14, Soriano 12, Siat 4, Columna 3, Valenzona 2, Gesalan 2, Tanaman 2

DLSU (66) - Piatos 16, Abaca 12, Wilson 10, M. Ong 9, Viterbo 6, Santos 6, Corcuera 4, Garcia 4, A. Ong 0, Melendres 0

Quarters: 16-21, 33-33, 55-49, 70-66

'Secret weapon' powers FEU to juniors crown
By Richard Hahn Posted Oct 11th 2012


Far Eastern University outlasted National University in triple overtime to bag its first UAAP juniors basketball crown since 1987.

He was their "secret weapon." And when Far Eastern University finally unleashed him, he proved to be unstoppable.

Roger Domingo hustled for offensive boards and drilled in all-important three-pointers to power Far Eastern University to a pulsating 113-109 triple-overtime triumph over hard-fighting National University and get the 75th UAAP juniors' basketball crown Thursday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Both teams refused to give up, but it was Domingo who delivered the biggest blows for the Baby Tamaraws, who won their first crown since transferring to Diliman.

"Siya yung secret weapon namin," said coach Mike Oliver. "Biruan na namin yun last year pa."

Domingo, also the hero of their Game 1 win, scattered five triples and finished with 23 points and nine rebounds while season MVP Jerie Pingoy had another monster effort with 32 markers, 11 boards, seven dimes and three steals.

"Yung mga bata ayaw mag-give-up," Oliver added. "Sabi ko, focus lang tayo at maglaro."

The Baby Tamaraws seemed on the verge of pulling away after Joshua Aguilon streaked for a layup, 78-73, with 3:20 remaining in the fourth quarter.

But NU fought their way back and, aided by a free throw from Rookie of the Year Reggie Morido, forced overtime.

The next two periods saw both squads exchanging clutch basket after clutch basket before Domingo and Pingoy sealed the Bullpups' fate with an 8-2 blast that settled matters.

Raph Atangan played 51 minutes and tallied 26 points and seven rebounds before fouling out while Hubert Cani helped NU stay alive in the third overtime and finished with 19 points, eight boards, seven assists and two steals.

The scores:

FEU (113) - Pingoy 32, R. Domingo 23, Aguilon 15, Delfinado 14, J. Domingo 11, Lee Yu 9, Lumba 3, You 0, Magbuhos 0, Hassan 0, Escoto 0

NU (109) - Atangan 26, Cani 19, Biteng 17, Cauilan 13, Morido 10, Battad 9, Canaynay 7, Lopena 3, Busa 3, Dela Cruz 2, Mosqueda 0, Lapiz 0, Castillo 0, Banawan 0

FEU wins juniors, women's UAAP crowns
By Olmin Leyba, The Philippine Star
Posted at 10/11/2012 6:54 PM | Updated as of 10/12/2012 8:19 AM

MANILA, Philippines – Far Eastern University (FEU)-Diliman leaned anew on Roger Domingo's clutch shooting to outlast National University (NU) in three overtime periods, 113-109, to crown themselves 75th UAAP juniors basketball champions dethroning the Bulldogs today at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Domingo, who starred in FEU's 78-77 triumph in Game 1 with a pivotal trey, hit two of his five triples in the third extension as the Baby Tams ascended to the throne for the first time since rejoining the league in 2005. It was also Baby Tams' first juniors crown since their former team from Morayta led by Johnny Abarrientos won in 1987.

The Baby Tams' triumph completed a double for FEU as the Lady Tams earlier dispatched La Salle, 70-66, to batter their way into the women's title via an unprecedented sweep of all their 16 assignments this year.

Domingo finished with 23 points on a five-of-10 shooting from beyond the arc in 47 minutes, his last triple giving the Baby Tams a 112-106 lead with 1:18 left, en route to the Finals MVP plum. Back-to-back season MVP Jerie Pingoy fired 32 points in 43 minutes, including four in OT 3, to go with 11 rebounds and seven asists.

"Ang biruan namin simula nung last year, siya yung S.W. namin, secret weapon. Talagang binuka namin sa kanya yan, sabi namin, ‘ready ka lang’ (We're fondly calling Roger Domingo our secret weapon. We really set those kick-out plays for him, telling him to just be ready)," said FEU coach Michael Oliver, who went to the courtside seats to hug and kiss his wife immediately after the final buzzer.

The Baby Tams actually enjoyed an 11-point lead in the third but allowed the Bullpups to catch up. FEU also had the upperhand entering the stretch of the fourth, the first overtime and second extension but failed to deliver the coup de grace against a resilient rival in each time.

"Nung first at second overtime, may chance manalo ang problema nagkaroon ng miscommunication sa defense. Yung mga bata ayaw mag-give up; sabi namin laro lang, pare, focus, depensa. (We had a chance to win it outright if not for miscommunication in defense that allowed NU to tie it. The boys wouldn't want to give up)," said Oliver.

Joshua Aguilon added 15 points while Jeson Delfinado had a 14-point, 10-rebound effort to complement Pingoy and Domingo.

Raphael Atangan paced the Bullpups with 26 markers, backstopped by Hubert Cani's 19 and Exiquiel Biteng's 17.

Sweep for Lady Tams

The Lady Tams authored the first sweep of the entire basketball season since the institution of the Final Four. University of Santo Tomas previously went unbeaten in the 14-game elims in 1993 and got the outright title as per rules back then. University of the East also swept the elims in 2007 to get automatic berth to the best-of-three finals but lost to La Salle, 0-2.

"Trabaho, dasal saka paniniwala lang sa system. Grabe ang pressure na mag-16-0 (It was a product of hard work, prayers and belief in the system. Pressure to go 16-0 was too much)," said FEU coach Allan Albano, recalling how expectations got higher and higher when the team went 7-0, then 14-0, and when they won the first game of the finals, 64-56.

Camille Sambile dished out a 16-16 effort while season MVP Allana Lim added 15 markers and 12 boards and finals MVP Soc Borja chipped in 14 points, seven assists and four steals to contribute to thrice-to-beat FEU's second straight tiara.

"Sobrang fulfillment kasi for five years, naka-three championships ako. Record pa, 16-0. Ang saya ng exit. (This is a graceful exit for me, third title in five years, record 16-0)," said Borja, who was rewarded with finals MVP plum with averages of 13.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block.

Trisha Piatos paced the Lady Archers with 16 markers followed by Aracelio Abaca's 12 and Kady Wilson's 10 and 12 boards.

FEU's double championship somehow made up for the Tams' disastrous campaign in the men's division, where they failed to reach the Final Four.

The scores:

1st game (women's)

FEU 70 - Sambile 16, Lim 15, Borja 14, Soriano 12, Siat 4, Columna 3, Valenzona 2, Gesalan 2, Tanaman 2

DLSU 66 - Piatos 16, Abaca 12, Wilson 10, Ong 9, Viterbo 6, Santos 6, Corcuera 4, Garcia 3, Ong 0, Melendres 0

Quarterscores: 16-21, 33-33, 55-49, 70-66

2nd game (juniors)

FEU 113 - Pingoy 32, R. Domingo 23, Aguilon 15, Delfinado 14, J. Domingo 11, Lee Yu 9, Lumba 6, Completo 3, You 0, Magbuhos 0, Hassan 0, Escoto 0

NU 109 - Atangan 26, Cani 19, Biteng 17, Cauilan 13, Morido 10, Battad 9, Canaynay 7, Lopena 3, Busa 3, Dela Cruz 2, Mosqueda 0, Lapiz 0, Castillo 0, Banawan 0

Quarterscores: 26-21, 46-41, 59-59, 78-78, 89-89, 100-100, 113-109

Baby Tamaraws bring back UAAP jrs hoops glory; Roger Domingo wins finals MVP

FEU Baby Tamaraws win UAAP basketball title

MANILA, Philippines—It took the best effort from best player Jerie Pingoy and another clutch showing from Roger Domingo to finally nab the UAAP juniors basketball title after two and half decades.

Pingoy was just at the top of his game, but Domingo took care of the clutch shots as FEU-Diliman outlasted National University, 113-109, in a gruelling three-overtime match Thursday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Pingoy, who also claimed the Most Valuable Player award, dropped 32 big points—more than half of it in the three extensions—11 rebounds, seven assists and three steals.

“Medyo gigil si Pingoy, but in the end, he was still the one who carried us,” said Oliver of the star guard.

The last time the Baby Tamaraws won the title was in the time of Johnny Abarrientos in 1987, and Oliver thinks Pingoy could be in the mold of the legendary guard.

Pingoy banked a shot with a minute and half left, but it was a triple from Domingo which stretched the lead to six points, 112-106, which came as a huge relief in such a tight game.

“We’ve always joked since last year that Domingo is our ‘secret weaopon’,” said head coach Mike Oliver. “He proved today how much of a shooter he really is.”

Domingo, who also nailed a game-clinching triple in the first Baby Tamaraws 78-77 win, added 23 points, nine rebounds and two assists.

It was fitting that the finals MVP plum was awarded to Domingo, who also played his final game with FEU, for his heroics all finals-long.

Domingo and Pingoy’s presence in the extra time was critical after exhaustion has taken its toll on the Baby Tamaraws as some have to be helped off the bench due to cramps.

“We actually had a chance to win in the first and second OT, but we had a miscommunication problem on the defense,” said Oliver.

Raphael Atangan led the Bullpups with 26 points as his squad leaned on his big buckets in regulation and the first two overtimes before fouling out of the game.

NU managed to send the game into another five minutes after Atangan found Exiquiel Biteng, who knocked down a game-tying trey at 100, from the corner.

Hubert Cani added 19 markers for the Bullpups, who was the only squad who managed to defeat the Baby Tamaraws but ultimately failed on their title defense.

UAAP Champion Eyes PSSBC Title

After winning the UAAP crown, Far Eastern University also hopes to win the first Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship (PSSBC) to cap a glorious year.

Through the exploits of MVP winner Jerie Pingoy and Roger Domingo, the Baby Tamaraws outlasted the National University Bullpups, 113-109, in triple-overtime to finally end a 25-year title drought.

The Baby Tamaraws also won the Fil-Chinese Basketball League early this year.

The 5-foot-7 Pingoy is touted as the heir apparent of Johnny Abarrientos for his wondrous moves, silky touch and court leadership – traits that made him now one of the most-sought after collegiate rookies.

Standing its way are reigning champion San Beda College and San Sebastian College from NCAA and multi-titled Chiang Kai Shek College and Xavier School from Tiong Lian.

Also invited in the tournament sponsored by Jumbo Plastic Linoleum, Wrangler, Dickies Underwear, MEC Networks, Ironcon Builders, Blackwater Sports, Hapee Toothpaste, and Welcoat House Paints are many-time UAAP champion, Ateneo, University of Santo Tomas, Letran, Hope Christian High School and La Salle Greenhills.

The tournament opens shop on Oct. 27 at The Arena in San Juan.

Meantime, league chairman Dr. Cecilio Pedro maintained that the prize money – P30,000 plus trophy and gift checks from Wrangler – won’t be the driving force for the players to excel.

FEU, SBC storm past rivals in PSSBC opener

(The Philippine Star)

Updated October 29, 2012 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines - UAAP Jrs. champion Far Eastern University-Diliman and NCAA titlist San Beda College needed clutch plays from their top guns to turn back their respective rivals at the start of the first Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship (PSSBC) at The Arena in San Juan over the weekend.

MVP Jerie Pingoy scored 22 points as the Baby Tamaraws repulsed the Chiang Kai Shek College Dragons, 81-77, in overtime.

The 5-foot-8 Pingoy knocked in two crucial jumpers in the extra period to help carry the Baby Tams past the Metro Manila Tiong Lian Basketball Association (MMTLBA) champions.

Billed as the next Johnny Abarrientos of FEU, Pingoy also set the plays for his teammates, including Roger and JJ Domingo who chipped in 12 points each.

The Dragons, led by Joshua Tan and Al Salim, had two chances to steal the win in regulation but blew them both as the Baby Tams toughned up on defense.

San Beda also found the going tough against Hope Christian High School, another team from MMTLBA, as it came from behind to post a 95-91 victory in the other game.

University of Santo Tomas and San Sebastian College also struggled before hurdling their respective rivals.

Former Philippine U-18 standout Arvie Tolentino imposed his will inside as the Red Cubs, with a record 20 NCAA titles, turned back the Hope Christian side, which led majority of the way.

The HCHS cagers led, 65-58, early in the fourth period but made poor shot selections, enabling the Red Cubs to strike back and snatch the win in the tournament backed by Ironcon Builders, Jumbo Plastic Linoleum, Wrangler, Dickies Underwear, MEC Networks, Blackwater Sports, Hapee Toothpaste and Welcoat.

UST, on the other hand, downed last year’s UAAP champion National University, 72-63, while SSC also posted a 108-98 overtime win over multi-titled MMTLBA champion Xavier School.

Though CKSC, Hope and Xavier lost, league vice chairman Dioceldo Sy, who played for Uno High School during his Tiong Lian days, was happy with their performance.

“The Tiong Lian teams are fast catching up with UAAP and NCAA teams, sooner or later, they would be able to beat them,” said Sy, who thanked Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) executive director Sonny Barrios and The STAR columnist Quinito Henson for gracing the affair.

Meantime, the FEU-CKSC game will be aired on Basketball TV (Channel 34) on Wednesday at 11 p.m. through the sponsorship of Davies Paints and Bon Chon Chicken.
