Tolomia leads Tamaraws' charge over Cardinals


By AARON VALDEZApril 26, 2014 1:24pm

The revamped Far Eastern University Tamaraws started their preseason strong after routing the Mapua Cardinals, 89-77, on Saturday at the FilOil Flying V Arena, in their first assigment of the 2014 FilOil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup.

"Sinong Terrence, sino yun?" FEU head coach Nash Racela jokingly quipped, referring to the Tamaraws' UAAP Season 76 MVP Terrence Romeo, who opted out of his final playing year to join the PBA. "We're past that already as early as the Champions League. The learning continues, important sa amin is we know what we are capable of."

"I told them [Terrence Romeo and fellow star guard RR Garcia] to make the right decision."

Mike Tolomia, who is expected to step into a bigger role with the loss of Garcia and Romeo, met expectations, scored 19 points, leading three other players in double figures.

FEU controlled the tempo in the first quarter, utilizing a running game, which benefitted their smaller, more mobile line-up, as Tolomia tallied a total of seven first quarter points early, while Mapua settled for long-range bombs which rarely fell through. The Tams led by six after a Tolomia jumper, 12-6, but the Cards managed to trim the lead to just three after a hook by Jesse Saitanan, 13-10.

FEU pushed the lead to eight after a three by Francis Tamsi, 18-10, but a stab by Joseph Eriobu cut the lead to six heading to the second canto, 18-12.

The Cards snipped the lead to four points after a dunk off a turnover by Eriobu, 20-16, as both teams found their rhythm offensively, with the lead swinging from four to eight points. Five straight markers from Mac Belo gave FEU a nine-point lead. 33-24, but four in a row by Josan Nimes kept Mapua within striking distance, 33-28. Eight unanswered from FEU rounded out the half, as the Tams entered the intermission with a commanding 41-28 lead.

At the break, sophomore Raymar Jose led the Tams in the scoring department with eight, followed by Mac Belo and Tolomia with seven apiece. Nimes top-scored for Mapua with 11, followed by Saitanan with eight. FEU won the rebounding battle, 26-16, but committed more turnovers than Mapua, 9-5.

Tolomia opened the third quarter with a nifty up-and-under move to expand the lead to 16 points, 44-28. Mapua brought it down to single digits after a lay-up by Leo Gabo, 47-38, but six unaswered from FEU kept the Tams afloat by 13 points, 55-42.

Six points from Nimes late in the quarter downsized the lead to seven points, 62-55, but a five-point swing from the Tams put them ahead by 12. A basket by Nimes inside closed out the quarter, with his team still far behind by 10, 67-57.

The Morayta-based squad maintained the double-digit lead for most of the fourth, until a 7-2 run late in the final canto cut what was once a 13-point lead down to just seven. However, young guns Padilla and Inigo swished back-to-back triples with a minute and a half remaining to keep the lead earnest, 89-75. Mapua couldn't get anything going, as they fell to the Tams, 89-77.

Tolomia fired 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting, to go along with three rebounds and four assists. Belo followed suit with 13 markers, while Jose added 12 points and seven rebounds. Inigo notched 11 with 3-of-4 shooting from downtown.

Far Eastern U crashed the glass 49-32, scoring 24 points off 18 offensive rebounds. The Tams also converted 49 percent of their shots, making 33 out of 68 attempts.

Nimes quietly scattered 28 points on 11-of-20 shooting, while Saitanan joined him as the only two players to have scored in double-digits for Mapua with 15. The Cardinals though had more assists, 20 to 17.

Mapua will face the Lyceum of the Philippines University on Monday, April 28 at 12:30pm, while FEU is set to go against the RP Youth U18 on the same day at 4pm. - JDL, GMA News


The scores:

FEU - Tolomia 19, Belo 13, Jose 12, Inigo 11, Hargrove 6, Pogoy 5, Padilla 5, Cruz 4, Escoto 3, Tamsi 3, Denila 2, Dennison 2, Ugsang 2, Delfinado 2, Escoto R. 0

MIT - Nimes 28, Saitanan 15, Eriobu 8, Cantos 6, Layug 5, Manarin 4, Biteng 3, Estrella 3, Gabo 2, Serrano 2, Brana 1, Canaynay 0

Clutch threes help FEU fend off Mapua in Filoil pre-season cup
By Celest R. Flores
INQUIRER.net 5:04 pm | Saturday, April 26th, 2014


MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University leaned on clutch triples to fend off Mapua, 89-77, to kick off their Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup campaign on Saturday at the Arena in San Juan.

Sophomore guard Achi Iñigo knocked down two triples in the last three minutes for the Tamaraws to cripple the Cardinals’ comeback led by Jonas Nimes.

After Nimes strung up five consecutive points to cut down FEU’s lead to seven, 80-73 with 3:18 left to play, Iñigo rifled in an open triple from the left side to bring the lead back to double digits.

Nimes answered with a step back jumper, but both Arnie Padilla and Iñigo struck from downtown to close out Mapua.

“We treat this tournament as a league where we will learn as a team. We really are not looking for results yet. It’s more on learning about the player, the system, and absorb the system that were trying to instill. But it’s good that we won today,” head coach Nash Racela said.

Mac Belo, one of the most improved players in the FEU side, tallied 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in only 20 minutes of play.

Racela got contributions from his entire 15-man line-up, with Tolomia finishing on top with 19 points.

Jessie Saitanan, meanwhile, put on a monster showing for the rebuilding Cardinals with 28 points to keep them within striking distance of the Tamaraws. Nimes added 15 markers

sir Dark Knight don't expect too much kay Reeve Ugsang, hindi naman siya Hype rookie kung ikukumpara sa ibang top rookies sa ibang schools. he's more on defense and rebounding. we have 7 to 8solid players or atleast veteran presence in our team Hargrove, Russel Escoto, Raymar Jose, Mac Belo, Carl Cruz, Roger Pogoy, Mike tolomia and Achie Iñigo. For me pang laban na sa Final 4 yan. we might have some surprises sa mga recruits naten, but as of now those 7 players yung maasahan naten.

Tamaraws nip PH U-17 in Fr. Martin Cup
ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 04/28/2014 1:23 PM | Updated as of 04/28/2014 1:23 PM

MANILA, Philippines – The Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws drew crucial baskets from two rookies in crunch time to put away the Philippine National Under-17 team, 69-66, in the Fr. Martin Summer Cup last Sunday at the St. Placid Gym in San Beda.

Francis Tamsi, a prized find from Bohol, and Davao standout Jeson Delfinado scored 17 and nine points, respectively, and struck hard in the final minute to lift the Tamaraws to their first win in Group B.

Richard Escoto put the nationals ahead for the last time with a free throw in the last 1:04, 66-65, but the Tams pulled ahead via Delfinado’s jumper with 54.5 seconds left.

Split charities from Tamsi and Delfinado in the last two seconds allowed the Tamaraws to escape with the close win.

Michael dela Cruz and Matt Nieto showed the way for the nationals with 11 points each.

Meanwhile, the National University Bullpups and the Adamson Baby Falcons marched to their second straight wins in the junior division, with the Bullpups getting 16 points from JJ Beldura as they turned back the Chiang Kai Shek Dragons, 85-56.

Gerald Fernandez and JD Tungcab scored 33 and 18 points for the Baby Falcons as they walloped Manila Patriotic School, 120-59.

Las Thursday, the Lyceum Philippines University-B Pirates got 14 points from Joseph Gabayni as they posted their second straight triumph in Group A at the expense of the Centro Escolar University-Malolos Scorpions, 87-52.

Donald Tankoua fired 12 points for the San Beda Red Lions, who beat the LPU-A Pirates, 66-61.

Lee Yu's clutch free throws spare FEU Tamaraws blushes against PH youth team

From: Reuben Terrado
•April 28, 2014, 07:27 pm

JOEL Lee Yu hit two crucial foul shots to help Far Eastern University hold off the Philippine Under-18 youth team, 74-73, on Monday in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

Lee Yu nailed the charities with 5.4 seconds left after Joshua Caracut committed a turnover at the backcourt, allowing the Tamaraws to steal the victory from the Nationals, who are using the preseason tournament as part of their preparation for the Fiba-Asia Under-18 championship in Doha this August.

The Tamaraws sparingly used their top players in the crucial stretch and almost paid dearly for it as their second stringers gave up 12 straight points to the Nationals late in the game.

“Siyempre, gusto rin naming manalo but at the same time, we really want to learn a lot come the UAAP season,” said FEU coach Nash Racela. “’Yung mga ganung instances din sila matututo.”

Jollo Go hit a four-point play and Henri Asilum buried a triple with two minutes left to complete the Nationals’ 12-0 run that put them ahead, 73-72.

Caracut, however, threw an errant pass as he yielded to FEU’s pressure defense in the final seconds, leading to Lee Yu’s game-winning free throws.

Go missed the potential game-winning jumper in the Nationals’ final possession.

The Tamaraws, who only won by three points in the Fr. Martin Cup against the world championship-bound Under-17 squad on Sunday, were ahead 36-31 at halftime after losing a double-digit lead in the early goings.

“We were telling them that our national team is joining the Filoil league because they want to learn how to compete against stronger teams. Utang na loob sa atin ng national team na tulungan sila," Racela said.

“By playing very soft and not giving our best (in the first half), hindi namin sila natutulungan. That is why pinush din namin sila.”

Raymar Jose had 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Mike Tolomia added 11 points, four rebounds, and five assists for the Tamaraws.

The scores:

FEU (74) – Jose 12, Tolomia 11, Pogoy 8, Escoto 8, Padilla 7, Belo 6, Lee Yu 5, Tamsi 5, Ugsang 5, Cruz 4, Belga 2, Dennison 1, David 0.

Philippine U18 (73) – Caracut 17, Tongco 13, Asilum 10, Desiderio 8, Santillan 7, Dyke 5, Subido 5, Go 4, Escoto 2, Manguera 2, Ochea 0, Manguera 0, Balanza 0, Senining 0, San Juan 0, Rivero 0, Armenion 0.

Quarterscores: 20-12; 36-31; 59-51; 74-73.

FilOilFEU fends off late RP Youth Team charge, notches second win

By KEVIN DAVISApril 28, 2014 6:42pm

The RP Under-18 youth team’s run in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup almost began with an incredible upset over perennial UAAP contenders Far Eastern University Tamaraws, but key mistakes in the final seconds of the game did them in, as FEU won 74-73, at the FilOil Flying V Arena on Monday.

Out-muscled, out-hustled and overmatched in the first half, the RP U-18 team looked every bit the high school team that they are. Despite their best efforts, the youth squad’s undersized rotation gave up a 28-19 rebound advantage to the senior FEU team, including a 14-5 mark on the offensive glass and a 12-0 blanking on second-chance points. The RP U-18 team though made the halftime score respectable with a quick 5-0 spurt in the final minute of the half, as Henry Asilum’s buzzer-beating jumper cut the lead to five, 36-31.

After resting their major rotation players for much of the first half, the Tamaraws ran with their starting lineup for most of the third quarter. The RP team found a measure of success defensively against this lineup, using an aggressive full-court press and half-court traps to pressure their more experienced counterparts into uncharacteristic turnovers. After turning the ball over only five times in the first half, the Tamaraws coughed up the ball an additional 12 turnovers after the halftime break. When the FEU starters checked out of the game in the final minutes of the quarter, the Youth team had held them to a relative standstill, 57-51.

The RP team’s quickness and length on the perimeter bothered the FEU guards in the press as well as in the half court, as deflections lead to fast break opportunities or precious seconds shaved off the shot clock, resulting in rushed perimeter jumpers. A four-point play by Jolo Go in front of the RP bench represented a turning point for the game and the free throw cut the lead to two points with 2:42 remaining in the game.

A three-pointer from the top of the key by Asilum gave the RP team their first lead of the game with 2:07 remaining. Both teams traded missed opportunities and when the RP team came down with a rebound with 10 seconds remaining, it looked like the National team would pull off the improbable upset. However, an ill-advised full-court pass by Aslium was deflected in the back court, which led to quick transition offense and free throws for Joel Lee Yu, who calmly sank both for a 74-73 lead with 5.4 seconds left.

Out of a timeout, Go missed a three-pointer over the arms of an outstretched defender and FEU ran the remaining time out.

The game featured a matchup between brothers, Russell and Richard Escoto. Richard plays for the FEU seniors team but was called to national team duty and started matched-up against his brother. The elder Escoto won the individual matchup, eight to two.

Andrei Caracut was the game’s top scorer with 17 points off the bench in just 17 minutes.

“I’ll talk about our discussion at halftime. We were telling them [our team] the reason why the RP team [is here] is for them to learn how to compete against stronger teams. So we said to ourselves, by playing very soft we’re not helping them out. That’s why we pushed them in the second, half especially our starters,” said FEU coach Nash Racela.

“They’re a very talented team. They have a very good coach. He knows how to attack points offensively. Defensively, that’s his strength, pressure a lot trap at times. One thing I saw from Coach Jamike [Jarin] was that his players are not afraid of their opponents and that’s very important especially when you play the international teams,” Racela added.

With the win FEU takes sole possession of first place in Group B in the FilOil Flying V Tournament.

The RP Youth team plays NCAA champion San Beda on Wednesday, April 30 at 2:15pm. FEU is next scheduled to play Letran on Saturday, May 3 at 4pm. - AMD, GMA News

Focus on Tolomia, Mark Belo as FEU adjusts to life without Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia
From: Reuben Terrado
•April 30, 2014, 06:11 pm

LIFE without stars Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia is going smoothly for Far Eastern University so far.

“Terrence? Sino ‘yun?” FEU coach Nash Racela answered in jest when asked if the team has already adjusted to the departure of last season's one-two punch of Romeo and Garcia.

Romeo was the Tamaraws' top scorer and was still eligible to play for a fifth and final year, but the flamboyant guard decided to turn pro after winning the 2013 UAAP Most Valuable Player award.

On the other hand, Garcia, the league MVP in 2010, played out his final year of eligibility with FEU last season. Both he and Romeo ended up being picked in the first round of the PBA draft by GlobalPort.

Racela said the school has already moved on from the Romeo-Garcia era as he expressed confidence the players who were left behind are capable of taking over the team.

“We are past that already,” said Racela. “As early as the PCCL.”

“Ang importante sa amin is we know what we are capable of doing. ‘Yun ang tinuturo namin na may kakayahan sila,” added Racela.

Without Romeo and Garcia, FEU’s attention now turns on Mike Tolomia and Mark Belo in its bid to return to the Final Four after showing marked improvement during the UAAP offseason.

While Tolomia is definitely capable of scoring, Racela said he is starting to develop into a ‘willing passer’ under his team-first approach.

“I’m starting to realize that he is a willing passer. That differentiates him from the others. But at times, meron pa ring mga moments. Pinag-aaralan niya ‘yun. Hopefully come the UAAP, he makes the right decision,” said Racela.

Belo, meanwhile, continues to develop his game after his stint with Sinag Pilipinas during the Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar last year.

“We are preparing him to be a perimeter player. ‘Yun ang target namin. It will help him down the road even after the UAAP. I know he is capable of playing multiple positions. I think he is doing good,” said Racela.

Racela, however, made it clear his Tamaraws are still a work in progress.

“The learning continues. Once you know that you trust your team, hindi ka puwedeng mag-ball hog at tumitira ng wala sa puwesto. My request is to make the right decision, take the open shot or pass kung may other option,” said Racela.

Tolomia, Cruz heat up as Tams trample Knights

By AARON VALDEZ,GMA NewsMay 3, 2014 8:20pm

The FEU Tamaraws charged to their third straight win, demolishing the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights 85-75 on Saturday, at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Knights emerged out of a third quarter deadlock and took the lead early in the fourth but Carl Bryan Cruz’ heroics saved the day for his side, as he sank three crucial triples late to give his team the lead for good. Guard Mike Tolomia anchored the team’s offense with 17 points and nine assists, while Cruz cashed in 16 points, 15 of them coming from downtown, while adding nine rebounds. FEU lorded over the rebounding department with 45 rebounds and dished out 23 assists as a unit.

“This is very different from the setup of the UAAP,” said FEU Head Coach Nash Racela. “It’s for us coaches to know the players na meron kami. We’re going through the same period na dinaanan namin last year with regards to knowing our players better. Siguro kalahati ng team namin bago.”

“Nakita ko nalilibre yung four namin [Cruz] so hindi ko siya pinipilit na ipasok sa loob, ginamit ko yung openings,” said Mike Tolomia.

“Sa offense namin, good spacing kaya ako nakatsamba sa tres,” said Carl Cruz.

This is the Tams’ third straight win, having defeated the Mapua Cardinals and the RP Youth U18 team earlier this week.

Tolomia and his comrades rallied to a hot start, leading 16-11 by the time Letran Head Coach Caloy Garcia pressed for time. Letran had trouble getting through FEU’s pesky defense, as five straight points from Jamil Gabawan and Mark Cruz brought the Knights within striking distance, 18-15.

The Tams’ big men took charge early in the second, as Mac Belo, Raymark Jose, and Russell Escoto all chipped in two points to extend the lead to seven. The lead reached its peak at 11 points after Cruz hit a triple to make it a 32-21 ballgame. Letran, staying true to form, went on a 10-3 run to cut the lead to 35-31 before heading to the second half.

Tolomia and Escoto paced their team with eight points apiece, the former having four assists in 11 minutes of play. Raymar Jose followed suit with six points. The Tams converted seven points off seven turnovers and dominated the boards, 24-15.

Racal topped the Knights in the scoring department at the half with eight, followed by Ruaya with six and Nambatac with five. They converted nine out of 17 shots from within the arc but shot dismally from long range, making only two out of 15 tries.

Mark Cruz sizzled in the third quarter, scoring eight points in the first five minutes to bring them within a point, 44-43. Letran finally stole the lead off freebies after the Tams entered a penalty situation early, 51-50. The final three minutes featured four lead changes until Pogoy and Saldua traded baskets to forge a tie heading to the fourth frame.

The Knights scored 10 straight points early in the fourth, as Cruz’ triple gave them a 67-63 edge over the Tams. The Tams’ own Cruz was not to be outdone, and swished in his own triples, the third of which gave them an 80-72 lead late in the fourth. The Knights tried to convert but ended up creating turnovers, and free throws from Tolomia cemented the win for FEU, 85-75.

Jose added 12 points for the Tams, making six of his nine shots while Escoto chipped in with 10, making five of his six attempts.

Mark Cruz scattered 20 points on 14 shots, while Kevin Racal and Ray Nambatac had 10 apiece. The Knights lost in every other area save for the stripe, where they netted 26 out of 31 tries.

The Tamaraws (3-0) take on the Lyceum of the Philippines Pirates (2-0) on Wednesday, May 7 at 12:30PM while the Knights (0-2) seek to improve their standing on Friday as they square off against the winless Mapua Cardinals (0-2) on May 9 at 4PM. - RAF, GMA News

Carl Bryan Cruz's three-point bombs help FEU Tamaraws put away Letran Knights
From: Reuben Terrado

CARL Bryan Cruz knocked in five three-pointers including three in the fourth period as Far Eastern University defeated Letran, 85-75, on Saturday to remain unbeaten in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

Cruz finished with 16 points and led a critical 8-0 run in the final quarter that allowed the Tamaraws (3-0) to put away the Knights and hold on to the top spot in Group B.

With FEU trailing 69-70, Cruz hit a triple to jumpstart the telling run that gave the Tamaraws a 77-70 lead. He added another three to make it 80-72 with two minutes left in the game.

FEU coach Nash Racela played down the team’s hot start to the preseason tournament which the school is using as part of its preparation for the UAAP season.

“We are not looking at that right now,” Racela said. “Ang importante sa amin is for the coaches to know the players na mayroon kami.”

Mike Tolomia added 17 points and nine assists while Raymar Jose had 12 points for the Tamaraws, who will next face undefeated Lyceum (2-0) on Wednesday.

Letran, still winless after its double overtime defeat to San Beda in the season opener, got 20 points from Mark Cruz.

FAR Eastern University is off to an impressive start in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup, winning its first three games.

However, it was a mere scrimmage that gave FEU head coach Nash Racela a reality check.

Last Friday, the Tamaraws grabbed an opportunity to gauge themselves when they accepted an invitation to play the reigning UAAP champion De La Salle in a tune-up game. The two teams are not in the same group in the Filoil tournament and will not face each other until the playoff rounds.

Unlike in the Filoil preseason tournament, the Tamaraws were thoroughly outplayed by a Green Archers side that has retooled its roster for the defense of the UAAP men’s basketball crown in Season 77.

For Racela, La Salle's win, which he described as ‘dominating,’ only showed that the Tamaraws are still very far from being in the level that he wants them to be, contrary to what its 3-0 record in the Filoil tournament suggested.

“It’s a wake-up call,” said Racela. “After (that game), we realized that we are really, really far from the level that we want. La Salle is a really tough team. They dominated us in all aspects.”



FEU has been winning a lot of games in the preseason — the Tamaraws are also competing in the Fr. Martin Cup. Following wins over Mapua, and the Philippine Under-18 team, they won over NCAA runner-up Letran last Saturday, 85-75, with Carl Bryan Cruz hitting five three-pointers.

But Racela was quick to play down the victories.

“That’s the problem with a lot of our tune-up games. We have been winning majority of them but it’s not the level of competition na lalaruin namin sa UAAP. Sometimes, it gives us false confidence na akala namin magaling kami but we really are not. Malayo kami sa gusto namin,” said Racela.

This week, FEU, preparing for its first season since the departure of former league MVPs Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia, will have another heavy slate of preseason games, playing three games including a back-to-back matches on Wednesday and Thursday.

The Tamaraws are not concerned with their heavy preseason schedule before plunging into the UAAP.

“We realize na our players will learn not really in practice but in games. We don’t want to pass up on those opportunities. There comes a time naman na magpapahinga,” said Racela.

Filoil caging: Unbeaten FEU Tamaraws seek No. 4
By Jasmine W. Payo
Philippine Daily Inquirer 12:04 am | Wednesday, May 7th, 2014


MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern University coach Nash Racela thinks the Tamaraws still play far from ideal even as they vie for four in a row in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup Wednesday.

The Tamaraws, who have found a new leader in Mike Tolomia, shoots for the solo lead against another unbeaten squad in Lyceum in Group B action at 12:30 p.m. at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

“We still have a lot to work on,” said Racela. “Half of our team is new and we’re only getting to know them now.”

Just like the Tamaraws, Jose Rizal U hopes to keep on improving as it goes for a third straight victory versus Cebu’s Southwestern U at 2:15 p.m.

A JRU victory will mean a share of the lead in Group A with idle leader Perpetual Help.

“I told them not to be happy with our previous wins,” said JRU coach Vergel Meneses.

“Every game, we have to improve as a team and as an individual.”

In Group C, San Sebastian targets a second victory against winless St. Benilde at 4 p.m.

The Tamaraws are coming off an 85-75 win while the Pirates are off to a 2-0 start after wins over Mapua (92-83) and newcomer St. Clare (85-82).

Tamaraws turn back Pirates for a 4-0 slate in Filoil caging

INQUIRER.net 3:38 pm | Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

MANILA, Philippines — Far Eastern University remained unscathed and rose to the top of group B after a 78-71 win over Lyceum Wednesday in the 2014 Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup.

The Tamaraws took the control from the get go and posted a 24-16 lead after the first quarter, but allowed the Pirates to stay within striking distance for the remainder of the match.

Twenty two turnovers hampered FEU from pulling away big, though Lyceum failed to capitalize on the miscues and only got 11 points out of it.

“I think we were better in sharing the ball. That’s something we want to teach our players, but there were a lot of turnovers, bad decision making,” said head coach Nash Racela.

The Tamaraws led by 15, 76-61, with 1:40 to go on a basket by Joel Lee Yu, but they allowed the Pirates to end strong with 10 points late in the game.

“Lyceum is a very tough team. Their level of physicality is something we admire and emulate,” said Racela.

While the Tamaraws are now at 4-0, the Pirates absorbed their first loss for a 2-1 card. Idle San Beda, also in the same group, is undefeated at 3-0.

Mike Tolomia led FEU with 22 points built on 4-of-8 shooting from downtown. Mac Belo added 12 points and nine rebounds while Raymar Jose had nine points and 14 boards in 15 minutes.

Cameroonian reinforcement Guy Mbida, meanwhile, finished with 15 points and 12 boards for the Pirates including a split from the stripe that trimmed the lead down to 8 early in the fourth.

But Lyceum failed to press on and allowed FEU to go on an 8-1 to seize the momentum anew.

FilOil:
Tamaraws stomp Pirates, remain perfect at 4-0

By KEVIN DAVIS

The FEU Tamaraws bullied their way past the LPU Pirates in wire-to-wire fashion, 78-71 on Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan City. The win maintains FEU’s top standing in Group B of the FIlOil Flying V Hanes Premier Cupt with a perfect 4-0 record.

Using their superior size advantage on the perimeter, the Tamaraws overwhelmed the smaller Pirate guards and forwards for easy drives to the basket. Mike Tolomia aggressively pursued mismatches and finished with a game-high 22 points in just 22 minutes of play.

The loss is Lyceum’s first of the tournament, dropping them to 2-1, a game and a half behind the table-topping Tamaraws.



FEU’s length seemed to bother LPU on the offensive end as well as the Pirates were denied looks attempts at the basket, resulting in 41 attempts from beyond the arc, with Lyceum converting on just 11 of them, good for a 27 percent clip. The Pirates had even more difficulty finding points from within the arc, finishing 12-of-49 for the game.


The Pirates did find success on the offensive glass, finishing with 31 offensive rebounds led by Joseph Gabayani’s eight offensive boards. Gabayani used his heft and soft touch around the basket to record 11 points in another solid outing for the transferee from UST.


The Tamaraws were uncharacteristically careless with the basketball, recording 21 turnovers led by Tolomia's six.


“Lyceum is a very tough team. Actually the level of physicality of their team is something that we admire, that we emulate. It is something we lack. If we want to go far in this UAAP season, it is something we need to have,” said FEU head coach Nash Racela.


“They’re a great team, they’re very physical. Like coach [Nash] said, that is something we need in the UAAP because a lot of teams will be bigger than us,” said Tams forward Mark Belo.


Lyceum next plays NCAA champion San Beda on Saturday May 10 at 12:30pm. The Tamaraws have a two-week break before their next assignment in the FilOil tournament, when they play St Clare on May 23 at 12:30pm before closing the elimination round against San Beda. - JDL, GMA News

FEU, CEU, NU look to stay unbeaten in Filoil cagefest

By Rick Olivares (philstar.com) | Updated May 15, 2014 - 11:36am

MANILA, Philippines – A trio of unbeaten teams look to keep their slate blemish free when they take on separate opponents Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at the San Juan Arena.

Group B pace setters Far Eastern University Tamaraws who stand at 4-0, battle the 1-2 St. Clare College Saints at 12:30 p.m. The Saints notched their first win in their first stint in the country’s preeminent pre-season college basketball tournament by taking down the recent Seaba gold medalists, RP Youth Under-18, 111-99. The nationals dropped to 0-3.

FEU head coach Nash Racela hopes that forward-center Russell Escoto continues his return to form after recuperating from a knee injury last season.

“He is important to our plans,” bared Racela, who is in his second year with the Morayta-based squad. “We don’t want to rush him. If he can regain his old form he will help us in our options and our rotation as we do not have too many bigs to count on.”

Tamaraws slip past Saints in Filoil caging
By Celest R. Flores
INQUIRER.net 5:04 pm | Friday, May 16th, 2014

MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University slipped past St. Clare College, 86-82, on Friday to stay unscathed in the 2014 Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at the Arena in San Juan.

But the Tamaraws, who led by as many as 17 points in the first half, were made to sweat for their fifth victory as the Saints came to within a point, 79-78 late in the game.

FEU, which struggled with 20 turnovers and measly fastbreak points, closed out St. Clare with a 7-4 run.

“That’s always the goal. Every game, we need to learn something. The ultimate league is the UAAP, and we’re preparing for that kind of games,” said FEU coach Nash Racela.

Racela, who is on his second season of coaching the Tamaraws, took the opportunity to see who will step up for his squad in crunch time, especially when the UAAP opens in July.

“We learn from these close games. Achie [Iñigo] delivered for us in the end game. At least, we saw who are the players who could really play in the end game, who we can rely on when the game’s on the line.”

Anthony Hargrove led the Tamaraws with 16 points, six rebounds, and two blocks while Mark Belo and Iñigo added 15 and 10 markers, in that order.

Meanwhile, five players wound up in double digit points for St. Clare, which managed to claw back from a huge deficit but just lacked the finishing touches.

Jason Ibay finished with 18 points for the Saints, who skid to a 1-3 record, while Radoh Fabien shone with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

FilOil:
Tamaraws dispose of Saints, win fifth straight

By AARON VALDEZ
May 16, 2014 2:19pm

The Far Eastern University Tamaraws stomped their way to their fifth straight win in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup by staving off the St. Clare Saints, 86-82, on Friday at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Anthony Hargrove posted 16 points and five rebounds while Mac Belo helped with 15 points and four rebounds, both playing 19 and 18 minutes respectively. Archie Iñigo chimed in with 10 points, five rebounds, and four assists.

The green and gold stacked as much as 17 points on their opponent but the Saints mounted a furious fourth quarter rally in the closing minutes to come within a point, 79-78. Iñigo hit a jumper over St. Clare guard Athan Ibarra's outstretched arms and Belo banked in a three-pointer to give them a six-point buffer, only for FEU reserve Francis Tamsi to commit an unsportsmanlike foul, yanking St. Clare guard Marte Gil.

The Saints had a chance to tie but Raymond Jamito missed a stab at the basket and free throws from Roger Pogoy sealed the win.

FEU coach Nash Racela said he wanted his team to close out better. "The ultimate goal for us is to prepare for the UAAP and gain experience. Sa close games kami kailangan mag-improve," he said. "We don't really look at the score. If it's a game or the close game, lagi naman sinasabi we have to play the same way, regardless.We were trying to be more specific on how to do thing correctly."

The Tams kept pushing the ball inside while the Saints opted to force drives, a tactic which worked in their favor as they were in the bonus at the 7:05 mark. Far Eastern U got the upper hand after Anthony Hargrove scored seven straight points from the interior, giving his team a six-point lead at 17-11. FEU upped that to 10 at one point, but the penalty situation watered the deficit down, as they led by just six, 25-19, after a quarter which saw them score 16 points in the paint.

The Morayta-based squad led by as much as 17 points as they shifted to a perimeter game, scoring 14 of their 18 second quarter points from range. The Saints shifted their defensive gameplan by employing a press, which forced three quick turnovers. Jason Ibay got his team going by nailing long shots, and the Saints went on an 11-2 run to close out the first half at 43-35.

Hargrove paced his team at halftime with nine points. Belo tallied six while Carl Cruz had five. The Tams shot 61 percent from the field but committed eight turnovers and 13 fouls.

Ibay bore the scoring brunt with 15 points while Jan Acebron added seven. The Saints shot only 28 percent, mostly due to missed opportunities from 13 offensive rebounds.

The Saints came within striking distance, getting within three points after St. Clare reserve Colly Bolos had the hot hand, 53-50. Belo and Hargrove though strung together seven straight for their side as they upped the lead to 60-50. The Saints entered the fourth frame trailing 63-58 despite 13 third quarter points from Bolos.

St. Clare struggled offensively early in the fourth after the Tams switched to a zone, as wing production gave them nothing and the big men were forced to shoot jumpers. FEU restored the lead to 10 after a fast break basket from Pogoy. St. Clare's coaching staf then instructed their charges to milk the penalty situation while employing a press, which generated 10 straight markers for the Saints as they trailed by just three, 79-76.

Mike Tolomia and Pogoy had nine points apiece. FEU converted 58 percent of their shots and assisted on 22 of them.

Ibay led five Saints who scored in double figures, dropping 18. Bolos tallied 16 points and six rebounds while Ibarra logged 13 points, four rebounds, and four steals. Favien tallied a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds while Gil chimed in with 10. The Saints shot only 32 percent but outrebounded the other squad 41-37. The Saints also scored 31 points from the stripe out of 45 attempts.

FEU (5-0) FilOil preseason action goes on hiatus as they wait until May 31 to face the San Beda Red Lions (4-0) at 2:15pm. St. Clare's (1-3) campaign resumes next Wednesday, May 21 at 2:15pm, as they take on the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights (1-2). - JDL, GMA News

Two sides of the game: FEU survives St. Clare College

By Rick Olivares (philstar.com) | Updated May 17, 2014 - 6:12pm

MANILA, Philippines -- There are lessons to learn in defeat and in victory.

All game long, St. Clare College center Raymond Jamito was posted up, pushed around, and even blocked by FEU’s Anthony Hargrove. The word “manhandled” would have been apropos in that sentence. Saints coach Jinino Manansala felt the same way and got on Jamito’s case after Hargrove’s intensity set the tone for FEU. “Bakit ka nagpapatulak?” Manansala thundered. “Takot ka ba? Kayang kaya mo naman pero natatakot ka ba.”

In one instance, St. Clare’s Cameroonian player, Fabien Redoh drove hard for a lay-up only for Hargrove and Mac Belo to simultaneously get a hand on the ball and send it flying out of bounds. The Tamaraws’ bench rose up to celebrate the block.

Redoh, who has been a shining example of a relentless work ethic for the Saints found himself at a roadblock with FEU’s taller players converting the shaded area had become a no fly zone for the NAASCU team.

None of St. Clare’s back-up centers could get the job done and it fell to forwards Jason Ibay and Colly Bollos and their excellent touch from the outside to give the Saints a massive lift. But not all the outside shooting in the world will drop because one has to still rebound and try to score from the inside.

However, with the FEU center out on account of five fouls (the last two questionable calls to say the least) with plenty of time to spare, Jamito breathed a little easier but it didn’t mean that the path to the basket was a free way. There was still the high-leaping Belo, tough as nails frontliner Carl Cruz, and the underrated Raymar Jose in the way.

Then suddenly… Jamito had a chance at redemption. He found himself the recipient of a perfect drop pass from teammate Marte Gil who split the lane and drew the defense to him. It was textbook perfect drop pass. Gil’s eyes gleamed with anticipation.

No Tamaraw met Jamito in the air for the short stab. If it dropped the score would be tied at 84-all with a strong chance to go into an extension.

But the unchallenged shot was painfully short and FEU’s Roger Pogoy corralled the rebound with 2.3 seconds left and was fouled. The graduating FEU swingman hit both his free throws -- as St. Clare was in penalty -- for the marginal points, an 86-82 win, FEU’s fifth straight in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup leaving them in the top position of Group C.

St. Clare painfully dropped to 1-3. In their three losses, they were in the fight for all three. The led San Beda at the half before the Red Lions ratcheted up their defensive intensity to win running away. Against the Lyceum of the Philippines University, the Saints were burned at the stake in the final minute of play for an 85-82 loss.

After the traditional post-game handshake, Jamito stood on the court; the disappointment and pain on his face so evident that one thought he was going to breakdown. Gil, who had played brilliantly in the lastttt three minutes as he single-handedly brought St. Clare back into the game, put an arm around his crestfallen teammate. “Bawi tayo,” he consoled.

The Tamaraws dominated the early goings of the match posting a lead as much as 17 points after Ron Dennison drilled a triple, 41-24, at the 4:18 mark of the second period. The Saints had no answer for the Tamaraws’ incursions from their dribble drive offense. And Hargrove, who finished with a team high 16 points to go with five rebounds, one steal, and two blocks, strung up 10 of FEU’s 12 points in a10-3 first quarter run to give his team a lead they didn’t surrender, 17-11.

Just when the game seemed headed for a blowout loss, the Saints sprung a full court press on the Tamaraws. For much of the second half, it wreaked havoc on FEU. St. Clare closed out the first half with a 7-2 run and held the Tamaraws scoreless in the half’s last two minutes.

In the third period, with the lead chopped down to three, 43-40, FEU fielded its one-man press breaker in Mike Tolomia. All tournament long, FEU head coach Nash Racela has left his starters on the bench in crunch time as he wanted his bench players to learn and try to hold the fort on their own. “This would serve us well in the long run,” reasoned out the coach who is one of the game’s underrated minds. “I do not want the team to be too dependent on others because that will defeat the purpose of them learning.”

The cool cat and quick Tolomia knocked down a triple and a bucket in the lane to give his team some breathing room, 50-42. Hargrove then went to work again scoring his last six points of the game for a 62-51 lead with the third period almost done.

FEU looked to close out the match with 28 seconds left, 84-78, after a Mac Belo reverse lay-up. Ibarra scored quickly to cut the lead to four but a flagrant foul called on FEU’s Francis Tamsi who belatedly knocked down Ibarra gave St. Clare two free throws and possession. Ibarra swished his two free throws and set up Jamito for the equalizer.

“Every game we need to learn something,” said FEU head coach Nash Racela after his team remained unblemished in Filoil play at 5-0. What we learned today is Achi Iñigo (10 points, five rebounds, and four assists) delivered in the endgame for us. We will learn more kapag dikit yung laban.”

Racela has deliberately rested his starters – point guard Mike Tolomia, shooting guard Roger Pogoy, forward-center Russell Escoto, and forward Mac Belo during crunch time to give his young players much needed playing time to prove their worth and gain confidence. “The ultimate goal is the UAAP and this tournament is an opportunity to learn to play as a team.”

Manansala on his part, while disappointed at the result still looked at the positive to take away. “We had a chance,” he enthused. “This gives the team heart because we are playing a very good team that has a very good coaching staff. Just watching them, iba yung level of play. Alam namin that they are resting their regulars and giving the young players a chance to shine. But they are still good. We have to look at what they are doing and learn.”

FEU 85 – Hargrove 16, Belo 15, Iñigo 10, Tolomia 9, Pogoy 9, Jose 8, Cruz 7, Escoto 4, Tamsi 3, Dennison 3, David 0, Lee Yu 0, Delfinado 0, Ugsang 0, Belga 0.

SCC 82 – Ibay 18, Bolos 16, Ibarra 13, Redoh 12, Gil 11, Acebron 7, Jamito 2, Managuelod 2, Lunor 1, Amboludto 0.

Tamaraws overpower Red Lions in Filoil Flying V

5:11 pm | Saturday, May 31st, 2014


MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University overpowered San Beda, 89-79, Saturday to keep a perfect record entering the quarterfinals of the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup.

The Tamaraws cashed in on a strong 24-13 start and sustained the intensity until the payoff period, not allowing the Red Lions to inch closer than six points.

Mike Tolomia led the charge with 26 points, sizzling on 4-of-4 shooting from downtown, along with 10 assists.

“We’re really happy with the win,” the soft-spoken guard said after the game, in which they led by as many as 16 points late in second quarter.

Do-it-all forward Mac Belo added 14 points and seven rebounds along with a steal and a block while Roger Pogoy had 10 points.

Despite a 6-0 card, FEU wound up at second place behind Centro Escolar University, which totes an identical record, due to inferior quotient.

Though it has been, no doubt, a dominant pre-season for the Tamaraws, but head coach Nash Racela will not stop downplaying their chances for the upcoming UAAP season.

“It will be helpful if we continued to do that. Were just being realistic [because other teams improved as well],” Racela said.

“There’s still a lot of fine-tuning needed and we’re still in the proces of teaching them what they could do as well as the limitations.”

The Red Lions, meanwhile, absorbed their first loss of the tournament after they were doomed by 18 turnovers which translated to 24 points for the Tamaraws.

Ola Adeogun had 21 points and 15 rebounds while Ryusei Koga added 15 points, sparking a fourth quarter run that kept San Beda within single digits.

Tolomia posts huge double-double as FEU sweeps elims with victory over San Beda

MIKE Tolomia had 26 points and 10 assists as Far Eastern University completed a sweep of its elimination round assignments with an 89-79 victory over reigning NCAA champion San Beda on Saturday in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

Mark Belo had 14 points and Roger Pogoy added 10 for the Tamaraws, who won their sixth game of the tournament.

The Tamaraws take second seed in the quarterfinals with an inferior quotient behind Centro Escolar University, which also swept its elimination-round matches.

FEU coach Nash Racela was pleased to see the Tamaraws pull off the win over San Beda, which according to him has a similar style of play with UAAP titlist La Salle.

“San Beda plays similar to powerhouse La Salle,” Racela said. “They like going to the post and they have an advantage in Ola (Adeogun). It was a test for us.”

“Anthony (Hargrove) was struggling and was saddled with fouls but that is something that we could learn pagdating sa UAAP. We will be a lot better defending (Arnold) Van Postal. The bigs were ready to play,” Racela said.

FEU led early, taking a 24-13 first-quarter lead. The Tamaraws also scored more turnover points than the Red Lions, 24-2.

Adeogun had 21 points, 15 reounds, and two blocks, while Ryusei Koga added 15 including 13 in the fourth quarter that allowed the Red Lions to come close at 81-75.

Tolomia, however, hit back-to-back baskets followed by Roger Pogoy charities for an 87-75 FEU advantage.

The scores:

FEU (89) – Tolomia 26, Belo 14, Pogoy 10, Jose 8, David 7, Inigo 6, Ru. Escoto 5, Cruz 4, Hargrove 4, Tamsi 3, Ri. Escoto 2, Dennison 0, Denila 0, Lee Yu 0, Ugsang 0, Delfinado 0.

San Beda (79) – Adoegun 21, Koga 15, Tongco 10, Dela Cruz 8, Mocon 6, D. Semerad 6, Ludovice 5, Amer 4, K. Pascual 4, Mendoza 0, Abatayo 0, Cabanag 0, Solera 0.

Like i said, no problem with the eliminations, its the playoffs im worried about. And it just happened a while ago losing losing to La salle and kissing our semifinal hopes goodbye.

No problem with our offense but our defense against La salle frontline is a joke. Opstal, Perkins, Teng are uncontrollable. Plus Torres just just got divine intervention shooting 7 trifectas in the 2nd half, (5 in 3rd quarter alone), that gave La salle cushion going into the 4th canto.

We had a chance actually under 2 minutes when Tolomia hit a trey and gave FEU a 1 point lead but again, we cant stop Van Ospital.

And jeesh................free throws are a thing of the past for the Tams.

FEU's close preseason loss to La Salle gives Racela hope ahead of UAAP season
From: Reuben Terrado
•June 5, 2014, 02:51 pm

FAR Eastern University coach Nash Racela prefers to focus on the big picture following the team’s exit from the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at the hands of De La Salle, turning his sights on the coming UAAP season.

The Morayta-based squad ended their preseason campaign with an 89-94 loss to the Green Archers, the reigning UAAP men’s champion - the Tamaraws' long loss coming at the quarterfinal stage after a sweep of their six games in the preliminaries.

But instead of sulking, Racela said he saw a marked improvement in the Tamaraws against a La Salle team which he believes will be the yardstick by which all UAAP teams will be measured this season.

Thomas Torres hit seven three-pointers for La Salle to finish with 23 points, but Racela wasn’t too concerned about giving up a lot of threes to one player.

“Actually nung halftime, ‘yun ang sabi namin na if they (Archers) hit from the outside, okay lang. But ang story of this game really is we want to gauge and see an improvement from the last time we played them.

“At least, kung titignan namin today, malaki ang improvement namin,” Racela said after emerging from the FEU dugout following the quarterfinal defeat.

Racela has been adamant the Archers are the team to beat in the coming UAAP wars.

To prepare against them, Racela even welcomed a game against San Beda at the end of the preliminaries where he pointed out the Red Lions played similar to La Salle since both teams rely on their bigs for offense.

But the Tamaraws’ five-point loss to the Archers readily gave Racela hope after they were blown away by the same squad in a tune-up game nearly a month-and-a-half ago.

FEU even came close to pulling off an upset when Mike Tolomia hit a huge triple to give the Tamaraws an 87-86 lead with 1:17 left in the fourth period.

But Arnold Van Opstal came to La Salle’s rescue to preserve the victory after the Archers lost grip of a 12-point lead in the fourth period.

“I was very honest to them kanina na after we played La Salle in a tune-up game, I was very honest to say na hindi ko alam how we will beat them. Then, a month and a half after, (this happened),” Racela said.

The close defeat, according to Racela, gives the Tamaraws enough belief in themselves going to their opening day game against the Archers on July 12 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum

“It gives us more confidence now na kaya natin,” said the FEU coach.

To prepare against them, Racela even welcomed a game against San Beda at the end of the preliminaries where he pointed out the Red Lions played similar to La Salle since both teams rely on their bigs for offense.

But the Tamaraws’ five-point loss to the Archers readily gave Racela hope after they were blown away by the same squad in a tune-up game nearly a month-and-a-half ago.

FEU even came close to pulling off an upset when Mike Tolomia hit a huge triple to give the Tamaraws an 87-86 lead with 1:17 left in the fourth period.

But Arnold Van Opstal came to La Salle’s rescue to preserve the victory after the Archers lost grip of a 12-point lead in the fourth period.

“I was very honest to them kanina na after we played La Salle in a tune-up game, I was very honest to say na hindi ko alam how we will beat them. Then, a month and a half after, (this happened),” Racela said.

The close defeat, according to Racela, gives the Tamaraws enough belief in themselves going to their opening day game against the Archers on July 12 at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum

“It gives us more confidence now na kaya natin,” said the FEU coach.
