Lady Tams down pesky Lady Bulldogs
By Donjie Carreon Posted Jul 8th 2013


Defending champion Far Eastern University earned its second win of the UAAP 76 women's basketball tournament after beating National University.

Defending champions Far Eastern University hunkered down on defense in the final period to outlast a pesky National University, 57-50, to claim its second win in the UAAP Season 76 women's tournament on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

In the fourth quarter, the Lady Bulldogs had a harder time getting to the basket as the Lady Tamaraws packed the paint and only gave single coverage to penetration attempts. After a 17-point third quarter, NU only managed nine in the last period as they committed a string of their 23 turnovers then with the new defensive look from FEU, which scattered 18 points.

The FEU took control with three straight baskets in the final minutes, but NU would not back down employing a full court trap to up to the last seconds despite the comfortable lead by the Lady Tamaraws

FEU's Vangie Soriano led all scorers with 20 points with six rebounds while Camille Sambile was all over the court with 11 points, 10 rebounds and six assists while also disrupting NU on the defensive end with six steals and two blocks. April Siat, meanwhile, had 11 points and eight boards. Risa Paig and Kristine Abriam, scored 11 each for the Bulldogs.

In other games, runner-up De La Salle University recovered from the University of Sto. Tomas's third quarter explosion to escape with 58-56 win.

The Lady Archers saw their nine-point half time lead evaporate in the third period as the Tigresses quicked the pace and deployed a full court press to get 20 points and tie the game at 44 all going into the fourth. La Salle, however, engaged UST in that game and deployed similar tactics, which proved effective as the Tigresses saw their turnover count pick-up.

UST had no answer for Ara Abaca, who was a force in the paint as she scored 20 points and hauled down 17 boards, while Camille Claro and Inna Corcuera added nine and eight points, respectively. Marian Mejia led UST with 17 points while Lore Rivera, Jeannine Ong and Maica Cortes each had 10.

Adamson University, meanwhile, whipped the University of the Philippines, 72-53, as the Lady Maroons repeated fumbles gave the Lady Falcons a huge 30-10 edge in turn over points.

Adamson kept the pressure on UP throughout the game to tally 11 steals, and with Katrinne Topacio and Sheerose Luna the most frequent mugging victims as they couched up the ball eight and 10 times each. Overall, UP had a whopping 34 turnovers.

Jinky Balasta led a balanced attack from Adamson with 20 points while Analie Tongco and Joy Cochio had 12 and 11. Janelle de Castro also added 10 points with 13 rebounds. Antonia Wong and Bea Baez had 12 apiece while Topacio and Patricia Tatel each scored 10 for the Lady Maroons.

Lady Tams, Lady Archers tie at 3-0
By Anthony Divinagracia Posted Jul 11th 2013

The defending back-to-back champion Lady Tamaraws repulsed Ateneo in its own backyard while last year’s runner-up Lady Archers edged Adamson in overtime to post identical 3-0 marks.

Perennial title-contenders Far Eastern University (FEU) and De La Salle University disposed of separate opponents Thursday to remain unscathed in the 76th UAAP women’s basketball tournament at the Blue Eagle gym.

The defending back-to-back champion Lady Tamaraws repulsed Ateneo de Manila University in its own backyard, 51-48, while last year’s runner-up Lady Archers edged Adamson University, 45-43, in overtime to post identical 3-0 marks.

Camille Sambile scored 14 points while Vangie Soriano added nine and 13 rebounds to lead FEU, which took a 38-28 advantage before the Lady Eagles mounted a searing 11-2 attack that knotted the count at 39-all early in the fourth quarter.

But the Lady Tamaraws quickly responded with a 9-2 counterattack to retake the lead, 48-41, for good.

Danica Jose chipped in an all-around performance of 12 markers, 18 boards, five assists, and four blocks to pace Ateneo. Binky Uy de Ong backstopped Jose with 12 points.

La Salle meanwhile played catch-up to the Lady Falcons in regulation before Trisha Piatos nailed a go-ahead three-pointer to put the Lady Archers up for the first time, 40-37, with 4:14 in the extra period.

Adamson would later wrest the upperhand in the last 1:24 of the contest as Analie Tongco and Kanille de Castro buried a triple and a freethrow, respectively to make it 43-42. Yet there was no denying the Lady Archers, who thwarted several Adamson incursions on the other end before finalizing the count on a Camille Ramos basket and an Ara Abaca split.

None of the Lady Archers managed to score in double figures with Cass Santos and Abaca tallying 8 and 7 markers to lead La Salle. The duo however grabbed 12 and 17 rebounds for good measure.

Tongco top-scored for Adamson with 13 points, while De Castro hauled down a record of 19 caroms, with eight coming from the offensive glass.

In other games, University of the Philippines claimed its first win by outlasting University of Santo Tomas (UST), 51-49, while National University returned to the win column via a 62-41 shellacking of University of the East.

Lady Tams through roller coaster for fourth-straight win
By Donjie Carreon Posted Jul 14th 2013


Defending champions Far Eastern University defeated the University of Sto. Tomas for its fourth straight win but not before going through a fourth quarter scare.

Far Eastern University continued to remain unbeaten in 76th UAAP women’s basketball tournament but it had to go through a scare from the University of Sto. Tomas for its fourth win, 52-51, as a series of late miscues almost cost the defending champs the game on Sunday at the Flying V Filoil Arena in San Juan.

Camille Sambille led FEU with 18 points and 13 boards, seven of which came from the offensive end, while Vangie Soriano had 10 points, eight rebounds and five steals. UST got 13 points and 14 rebounds from Maica Cortes and 11 each from Jeannine Ong and Marian Mejia.

Half way through the fourth quarter, the Lady Tamaraws built a 52-40 lead on a left elbow jumper by Sambile. The Tigresses, however, responded with nine straight points to narrow the gap, while preventing the Lady Tamaraws from converting any of its shots, including an easy putback by Sambile with a minute left.

UST failed to score on the next possession, but Soriano turned the ball over after the Tigresses trapped her near the right three point elbow. With five seconds remaining, Mejia converted a tough driving lay-up to the middle and drew contact but missed the bonus free-throw allowing the Lady Tamaraws to escape.

FEU coach Allan Albano joked that he was just trying to replicate the excitement from the escape act the men’s team pulled over De La Salle University on Saturday, but admitted that his team made it tougher with mental lapses.

“We built the lead through hustle and defense… (But we allowed UST to get into the game) with our mental lapses and poor decision making,” he said.

It was the third straight heart-breaking loss for the Tigresses, who would have been among the league leaders if not for its repeated late game miscues.

Lady Tams bounce back against Adamson; DLSU beats NU
By Donjie Carreon Posted Aug 25th 2013

La Salle avenged its first round loss to NU even as defending champion FEU bounced back from its first loss in the UAAP 76 women's basketeball tournament.

Far Eastern University bounced back from its first loss of the UAAP Season 76 women’s basketball tournament by outlasting a pesky Adamson University, 50-45, on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.

FEU limited Adamson to just three points in the first period but failed to pull away as the Lady Tamaraws only mustered 13 points of their own. The Lady Falcons clawed their way back in the second quarter thanks to Jinky Balasta’s timely shots and poor shooting from the Lady Tamaraws.

Camille Sambille led the Lady Tamaraws with 16 points and 11 boards while Vangie Soriano and Marites Albano added 15 and 10 points each. Balasta and Jesusa Avilla each had 10 for the Lady Falcons.

FEU improved to 9-1, while Adamson fell to 3-6

FEU coach Allan Albano is happy that his team recovered in time to get the win, but admitted being hungover from their loss against the University of Santo Tomas.

“Bumagsak yung morale namin dun sa talo. Nasanay sila na laging panalo kaya mahirap iparamdam na isang talo lang yun. Buti na lang pinakita ulit nila yung refusal to lose kaya kami nag-bounceback, “ he said.

Albano commended Adamson for its gritty play and said that the tough match, like the game against UST, showed that FEU needs to improve its execution.

“Smarter play pa. Kailangan pa naming gawin yun,” he said.

In the first game, the De La Salle University defeated National University, 77-69, to avenge its first round loss. La Salle improved to 6-3 but remained at third place, while NU is still at second with an 8-2 record.

FEU 50- Sambile 16, Soriano 15, Albano 10, Tanaman 4, Siat 4, Chan 1

Adamson 45 - Balasta 10, Avila 10, Garrido 6, Taller 5, Tongco 4, Cochico 4, Quingco 2, Mateo 2, De Castro 2

Quarter scores: 13-3, 22-19, 34-31, 50-45

Lady Tams accept forfeiture of won games but not giving up on repeat bid

The Lady Tamaraws are currently in first place with an 11-1 win-loss card but expects to have most of those wins forfeited due to a eligibility violation committed by one of their players.

FAR Eastern University's women's basketball team expects to have most of its wins forfeited after one of its members was found to have played in another league while the UAAP season is ongoing, but is not giving up hope of retaining its championship.

Anton Montinola, the school’s representative to the UAAP board, said the Lady Tamaraws' Vangie Soriano has admitted to school officials that she had played in a commercial league during the season - a violation that could cause the forfeiture of all the games she played in this season.

The Lady Tamaraws are currently in first place with an 11-1 win-loss card.

“Apparently, she played one game in a championship game of some league which happened after the start of the UAAP that we didn’t know. She admitted, but it’s okay,” Montinola said.

The UAAP board has not officially meted a sanction on the Lady Tamaraws, but Montinola said they are expecting most of their wins to be forfeited.

“A lot,” said Montinola when asked how many games he expects the team to forfeit.

Still, Montinola said there are still enough games remaining for the Lady Tamaraws to make up for the forfeited games and make the Final Four.

“Fortunately, we have enough games to win in order to reach fourth place. So we still have a chance.”

Montinola said the school will respect the sanction the UAAP board will slap on FEU during the league’s regular board meeting on September 9.

“Her admission to us is good enough,” said Montinola

In 2011, the UAAP board also decided to forfeit several wins after four volleyball players were found to have played in a so-called ‘ligang labas’ in Carmela Garbin and Clarisse Yeung of La Salle, Lorraine Chua of University of the Philippines, and University of the East’s Alyssa Paril.

All four played in the tournament called the Viking’s Cup.

Bullpups whip Junior Maroons to move closer to elims sweep at UAAP 76 juniors basketball

MANILA, Philippines — National University moved closer to an outright finals berth, while Ateneo secured a semifinals spot after separate victories Saturday in the UAAP season 76 juniors basketball competition at the Blue Eagle gym.

One more victory separates the Bullpups from a trip to the finals with a precious three-to-beat edge.
Ateneo improved to 11-2, which also earned the Bullpups a twice-to-beat edge in the semifinals — regardless of the format.

The Blue Eaglets have a shot at spoiling the Bullpups’ bid as they tangle on September 13 at the same venue.

Meanwhile, reigning titlist Far Eastern University-Diliman and De La Salle-Zobel also formalized their entry to the semis after dispatching cellar dwellers Adamson and University of Santo Tomas, respectively.

The Baby Tamaraws clobbered the Baby Falcons, 67-42 behind Richard Escoto’s 20 points, while the Junior Archers survived the Tiger Cubs with a hard-fought 49-46 victory.

Lady Bulldogs edge Lady Tams, Adamson stays in Final Four hunt

By Anton Roxas Posted Sep 11th 2013

Despite NU win's over FEU, the Lady Tamaraws will still finish as the number one seed going into the Final Four while the Lady Bulldogs will come in as the number two team.

National University got the better of Far Eastern University, prevailing 66-63 in their second round matchup in the UAAP Season 76 Women’s basketball tournament on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Starting center Anne Gupilan converted on a tough bank shot with 7.6 seconds remaining in the game to put NU ahead 66-63, preserving the victory. Gupilan finished with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists.

NU matched the 12-2 record of the defending champions, however, because FEU has a higher winning margin against the Lady Bulldogs, (FEU d. NU in the 1st round: 87-83) the Lady Tamaraws will hold the number one position while NU will finish at second place going into the Final Four.

In the second game, Adamson University kept its Final Four hopes afloat by stunning De La Salle University, 54-52.

The Lady Archers had several chances to tie the game in the last two minutes but were unable to manufacture baskets. DLSU’s leading scorer Ara Abaca only managed to score 4 points as she was hampered by flu-like symptoms.

DLSU dropped its third game of the season but already locked up third place with 9 wins.

Adamson (6-7) and the University of Sto. Tomas (7-6) are the two remaining teams battling for the last slot in the Final Four.

The Lady Falcons will play winless Ateneo de Manila University in their last game while UST will face the University of the Philippines (5-8).

Box scores:

First game:

NU 66 – Gupilan 20, Tongco 10, Escoto 9, Paig 8, Abriam 8, Bernardino 7, Bonleon 2, Antiquiera 2, Seno 0, Cenarosa 0.

FEU 63 – Sambile 20, Gesalan 15, Gabriel 8, Siat 7, Albano 5, Valenzona 4, Tanaman 2, Chan 2, Lozano 0, Castro 0, Basa 0.

Quarter scoring: 19-10, 37-30, 56-46, 66-63.

FEU Lady Tams on brink of elimination after five won games forfeited by board

FEU Lady Tams on brink of elimination after five won games forfeited by board

THE UAAP board officially forfeited five won games of the Far Eastern University women’s basketball team on Thursday after one its players was found to have suited up in a commercial league this season.

The league made the decision during its regular board meeting when Vangie Soriano was discovered to have played in a tournament that was held simultaneously with the ongoing Season 76.

Soriano was disqualified from playing this season after seeing action in a championship game of a 10-day commercial league last July 14.

The forfeiture resulted in the three-peat seeking Lady Tamaraws dropping to an even 7-7 record for fifth place after finishing the eliminations with a 12-2 slate last Wednesday.

The team however, is still in a precarious position in its title defense as it is currently in fifth place behind University of Santo Tomas and Adamson (7-6) going into the two teams' final game of the season.

UST will face University of the Philippines (6-7) on Saturday, while Adamson will have a relatively strong opponent in second-running De La Salle (11-2) on Wednesday.

FEU Baby Tamaraws knock out DLSZ

By Anton Roxas Posted Sep 17th 2013

FEU-Diliman eliminated DLSZ to advance to the next phase of the stepladder semis against Ateneo.

Defending UAAP Juniors basketball champion Far Eastern University-Diliman held off a furious rally from De La Salle-Zobel to prevail, 65-55, in their step-ladder semifinals match on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at the Blue Eagle Gym inside the Ateneo de Manila University campus in Loyola Heights, Quezon City.

Trailing 51-37 to start the fourth quarter, the Junior Archers were not ready to let their season slip away just yet as they utilized a full-court press that helped them go on a 16-6 run to cut the deficit to just four points, 57-53, at the 4:28 mark.

But, FEU-Diliman responded with a 4-0 run capped off by a booming triple from the left wing by Jj Domingo, giving the Baby Tamaraws a 61-53 lead with 1:48 to go. That shot proved to be the finishing blow as DLSZ would only score two more points before the final buzzer sounded.

Domingo had an all around performance with a game-high 18 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals.

Renzo Subido finished with 17 points in his final UAAP game as a Junior Archer.

FEU-Diliman will advance to the next phase of the stepladder semifinals in UAAP Season 76 to face the number two seeded Ateneo Blue Eaglets, who will be armed with a twice-to-beat advantage.

Small consolation for Lady Tams as Sambile runs away with MVP honor

FAR Eastern University's Camille Sambile captured MVP honors in the UAAP Season 76 women’s basketball tournament, a small consolation after the Lady Tamaraws missed out on a trip to the Final Four.

Sambile was simply dominant this season after tallying 81.3571 statistical points, according to the official statistics report provided by Imperium Technology and Smart Bro.

The FEU stalwart averaged 19.7 points, 11.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.9 steals, and 1.6 blocks for the Lady Tamaraws, who had five games forfeited after Sambile’s teammate Vangie Soriano was found to have played in a commercial league during the season.

The controversy had the Lady Tamaraws dropping from No. 1 at 12-2 to an even 7-7 and out of the Final Four, ending their bid for a third successive league championship.

But not even the deduction of statistical bonus points gained from team victories could stop Sambile from becoming the third straight Lady Tamaraw to win the MVP plum after Allana Lim in 2010 and Soc Borja in 2011.

Ara Abaca of De La Salle was a far second in the MVP race with 65.5714 SPs, followed by Afril Bernardino of National University with 61.5741 SPs.

Ateneo’s Danica Jose, daughter of former PBA cager Bobby Jose, wound up in fourth place with 61.5714 SPs, while Maica Cortes of University of Santo Tomas finished fifth with 61.5 SPs.

Lore Rivera of UST came in sixth (61.0714 SPs), Joy Cochico of Adamson was seventh, (59.1429), Anne Gupilan of NU (58.5714) was eighth, and Antonia Wong of University of the Philippines (53.6429) was ninth.

Incidentally, Soriano even finished 10th with 50.7 SPs in the statistical race, the lone basis for the individual awards.
