Lyceum, Adamson take early lead in Fr. Martin Cup

Posted at 04/08/2014 1:06 PM | Updated as of 04/08/2014 1:06 PM
MANILA, Philippines – The Lyceum Philippines University-B Pirates and the Adamson Baby Falcons turned back separate rivals to grab a share of the early lead in the 20th Fr. Martin Summer Cup Monday at the Trinity University of Asia gym.

Sophomore Winston Baltazar and Joseph Gabayni struck hard in the dying seconds as the Pirates spoiled the debut of new Arellano University coach Jerry Codinera with a 71-66 victory over the Chiefs.

With the win, the Pirates joined the University of the Philippines at the top of the leaderboard in Group A.

The 6-foot-3 Baltazar fired 20 points, including a crucial triple in the last 1:21 to allow the Pirates to shatter a 66-all tie after Ralph Salcedo’s putback with 1:33 to go had tied the game for the last time.

Gabayni’s putback with 45 ticks to go later handed the Pirates a five-point edge which they preserved until the end of the game.

“It was a close fight. Arellano played differently, and we’re not used to their game with their new coach,” said Pirates coach Bonnie Tan. “It was a challenge playing against Arellano.”

Keith Agovida scored 16 points for Arellano.

Meanwhile, Robbie Darang scored 18 points for the Baby Falcons, who outplayed the Emilio Aguinaldo College-ICA Brigadiers, 57-44, in the juniors division.

The Baby Falcons took a 55-38 lead in the last 2:51 behind the efforts of Darang and Ralph Chua.

Adamson is now tied with Manila Patriotic School in Group A of the juniors division.

FEU Survives RP U17, Ateneo B Blitzes EAC

By Joseph W Buduan

27 April 2014, St Placid Gym, San Beda Mendiola, Manila - FEU used their veteran wiles to survive a tough RP Youth Team 69-66 in the main game of the ongoing Fr Martin Cup summer tournament on a blistering hot Sunday.

Ateneo Blue Eaglet star guards Jolo Mendoza and Matt Nieto combined, FEU Junior Tamaraw center Richard Escoto, and new FEU recruit Arnie Padilla of Cebu all chipped in during ppivotal runs late in the third and early in the fourth periods to keep the youngsters in the game.

Putting on a three-quarter court press on defense and disrupting the passing lanes, the U17 Nationals prevented the Tamaraws from breaking away in spite of FEU's clear advantage in size and experience.

Mendoza, Nieto and Nieto's twin brother Mike even combined to give the Nationals a 65-66 lead with time down to under two minutes. But new recruit Toto Tamsi, a sweet shooting 5'9" combo-guard, nailed a long jumper to restore the lead to FEU 67-66.

In the ensuing play of a U17 timeout, a fracas nearly ensued when Boy Belga of FEU, a stocky 6'1" swingman, pulled a sneaky jewel tap on UP rookie guard Paul Desiderio. Desiderio crumpled to the floor, prompting U17 Coach Jigs Mendoza to storm the court. The rest of his coaching staff were able to restrain Mendoza even as game officials kept things from getting further out of hand.

Unable to score on this possession, the Nationals fouled Belga, who made a pair of pressure freethrows for the final margin.

Tamsi led all scorers with 20 points, while Jolo Medoza led the U17 with 15 points to go with three steals.

In the next game, Ateneo B pulled away in the third period and never really looked back for the 82-66 victory over Emilio Aguinaldo College.

Anton Asistio, the one-time Blue Eagle, went 5-7 from three-point range to propel the Ateneo to a 65-54 lead late in the third period after a closely fought first half.

Jan Hamon and import Noube Happi tried to bring the Generals back into the game, coming within 66-60 early in the fourth period.

That would be as good as it would get for EAC though, as Coach Gerry Esplana's boys could not solve the full court pressure and quick transition game of the B Eagles.

Asistio led the Ateneo with 20 points while newcomer KMark Carino added eight points to go with his 10 rebounds and three blocks. Happi led the Generals with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

Mbomiko powers Lyceum over Trinity in Fr. Martin cagefest

(philstar.com) | Updated April 30, 2014 - 10:26am

MANILA, Philippines – Abdulaziz Mbomiko struck with 27 points as the Lyceum Philippines University-B Pirates escaped with a 66-59 beating of the Trinity University of Asia Stallions, 66-59, , last Sunday in the 20th Fr. Martin Summer Cup basketball tournament at the St. Placid gymnasium of the San Beda College campus in Manila.

Mbomiko’s triple in the last 1:45 allowed the Pirates to get away with a 10-0 windup and register their third straight win.

This allowed them to share the Group A leadership with the University of Perpetual Help Altas.

LPU-B’s latest triumph came as LPU-A picked up their first win in two games in Group B following a 93-89 win over the National University-A Bulldogs in overtime.

In the junior division, the Tyler Tio-led Xavier School Golden Stallions turned back the San Beda-A Red Cubs, 95-93, for their first win in two games in Group B.

The SBC-B Red Cubs crushed the Emilio Aguinaldo College-ICA Brigadiers, 79-63, for their second victory in three matches in Group A.

The Pirates were struggling with their 56-59 deficit when Mbomiko struck with his trey and tied the match for the last time, 59-all.

Christian Pamulaklakin then stepped up with his split free throw, and so did Peejay Soliman, whose drive in the last 1:03 gave LPU-B a three-point spread, 62-59.

Mark Doligon hit 18 points for the Trinity Stallions, who are winless after two outings.
