    TEAM STANDINGS
    Aspirants Division – Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy (3-0), Jubilee Christian Academy (3-1), Grace Christian College (3-1), Philippine Cultural College (2-2), Saint Jude Catholic School (2-2), Pace Academy (0-3) and Uno High School (0-4)

    Red-hot John Patrick Lim exploded for six triples and a tournament-high 33 points as Grace Christian College bucked a last-ditch rally by Uno High School to post an 83-73 victory Thursday night (January 2 in a Juniors Division game in the 3rd Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) basketball competitions at the Uno High School gym in Tondo, Manila.
    It was GCC’s third consecutive win and propelled the team to solo third place in the Juniors standings with a 3-2 record, trailing only reigning titlist Saint Jude Catholic School and host Philippine Cultural College, both of whom sport perfect 4-0 records going into their match on Saturday noon (January 30).
    With the loss, Uno, the 2014 champion, drop to sixth spot with a 2-3 card.
    The Uneans led by four points, 6-2, in the early goings before treys by Lim and Sebastian Choi trey put GCC ahead, 8-6. Following the game’s lone deadlock at 8-8, on a pair of free throws by Kim Tanlo, Choi drained his second triple of the initial quarter to lift his team to an 11-8 advantage.
    GCC never trailed thereafter, grabbing a 16-14 lead after the first 10 minutes – behind six points each by Lim and Choi and four from center Ralph Lim. Tanlo had eight of Uno’s 14.
    GCC started to pull away in the second canto as Lim chalked up three triples and 11 points and Choi scored six on three buckets for a 42-32 edge at halftime. Both Lim and Choi were already in twin-digit scores after 20 minutes with 17 and 12 points, respectively. Tanlo held the fort for UHS with a dozen markers.
    GCC looked to cruise to an easy victory, going up by as much as 18, 63-45, on a Choi fielder with less than two minutes in the third quarter when Uno came roaring back. Jozshua Healy clustered six straight points, including the first completed four-point play in the tournament (a trifecta and an accompanying free throw off a foul), as Uno closed out the period with only a 12-point deficit, 63-51. Yet it could not stop Lim, who netted his second straight double-digit scoring quarter with 10 points and another pair of threes.
    Bridging the third and fourth quarters, though, Uno ignited a 12-0 bomb that was capped by back-to-back threes by Healy and Tanlo to commence fourth-period action, slicing its deficit to 63-57.
    Six unanswered points by GCC restored its lead to 12, 71-59, with 6:05 remaining. A Warren Tan fielder brought Uno within three, 72-69, at the 1:59 mark. But the fiery comeback was extinguished by a 9-0 run by GCC – a fielder by Lim, a surprising corner three by seldom-utilized Aaron Chan, a John Ing jumper and two free throws by Lim – for an 81-69 advantage with 26.9 seconds left.
    In addition to his 33 points (spiked by one three in the first quarter, three threes in the second and two in the third), Lim also hauled down nine rebounds. Two other GCC players tallied in double figures – Choi, 18 points, and Ing, 12 (along with eight boards).
    Chan (who scored all of his points in the fourth quarter) and bulky Ralph Lim added seven apiece for the winning squad. Biggies Ralph Lim and Jehrend Tauro produced 13 and 10 rebounds, respectively.
    For Uno, the leading scorer was Healy with 20 points (16 of them in the second half, including a pair of triples). He also plucked down seven reebies. Tanlo finished with 19 markers (including a triple each in the final three quarters), eight rebounds and three assists. Hulking Jesse Chong contributed nine scores and 18 rebounds and goggles-wearing Marc Cheng also had nine points.
    It was a double celebration of Grace Christian College as its Aspirants team shellacked its 13-and-under counterparts from Uno HS, 108-50, for its third win four assignments.
    Uno fell to the bottom of the Aspirants standings with a 0-4 record. It also marked the second consecutive game that the young Uneans gave up 100 points or more. Last January 23, they dropped a 104-54 decision against Jubilee Christian Academy.
    Marcus Lu finished with 22 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks for GCC while ...
  3. Farewell, King Caloy

    More than his impeccable and immense contributions to Philippine basketball history, I would rather like to remember the late Carlos “Pomfret” Loyzaga for his humility, discipline and dedication to his craft.

    These are the characteristics that Filipino athletes of the young generation should emulate.

    Talent without dedication and discipline, after all, is an unlamented waste.

    Caloy, who crossed the Great Beyond last January 27 at the age of 85, was so humble of his accomplishments no matter how monumental it had been during Philippine basketball’s Golden Era in the fifties and sixties. And the discipline it took to maintain his health in outstanding shape was truly remarkable and admirable.

    To chroniclethe 6-3, 200-pound Loyzaga’s cage exploits is to immortalize the most glorious moments in PH basketball history.

    He was a rarity in that he could play all three positions – center, guard and forward – with equal efficiency.
    The bull-strong, multi-faceted Loyzaga was at his finest in overseas competitions.

    No other prominent Filipino cager since the 1970s – active or retired – has had more experience at the international level than Loyzaga, who was known by various monikers – “The Big Difference,” “The Great Difference” and “King Caloy” among other descriptions – during his heyday for his scintillating all-around hardword performance.

    Caloy wore the Philippine national colors on 10 occasions, including four stints outside the Asian region, the most memorable of which came during the 2nd FIBA World Basketball Championship (known as the FIBA Basketball World Cup since 2014) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1954.

    In that quadrennial meet, the Philippines grabbed the bronze medal for the highest finish ever by an Asian country in FIBA World Cup annals (even until now).

    Loyzaga and his teammates finished with a 6-3 record and Loyzaga ranked third in scoring in the tournament with a 16.4-point average in nine appearances, including a high of 33 points in the Filipinos’ 67-63 win over Uruguay in their final game, to earn a berth on the five-man All-Tournament Team. (To date, no other Asian player has turned in the trick.)

    In three other stints on the world stage, Loyzaga starred for the Philippine Olympic team during the 1952 Summer Games in Helsinki, Finland (3-2, ninth place) and the 1956 Summer Games in Melbourne, Australia (4-4, seventh place) and in the World Basketball Championship in Santiago, Chile in 1959 where the country placed eighth with a 4-2 ledger.

    He also was a hands-down selection for the 1960 Olympiad in Rome, Italy. But he failed to join the nationals due to a broken right wrist he suffered while playing softball at the old Cortabitarte Field, which is now the site of the Ospital ng Maynila.

    Astonishingly, the mestizo-looking Loyzaga brought home the championship hardware in all of his six stints in the Asian scene.

    He snared a gold medal in each of his four Asian Games appearances – 1951 New Delhi, India (4-0); 1954 Manila, Philippines (6-0); 1958 Tokyo, Japan (6-1); and 1962 Jakarta, Indonesia (7-0) – and two more in the Asian Basketball Confederation tournaments (now known as the FIBA Asia Championship) – 1960 Manila, Philippines (9-0) and 1963 Taipei, Taiwan (9-2).

    The 1962 Asian Games marked the most recent time that the Philippines had brought home the men’s basketball crown.

    Loyzaga put together a mind-boggling 58-14 record overall during his illustrious playing tenure with the PH national squad.

    Moreover, Loyzaga, a product of San Beda College, amassed a total of 25 gold medals in his 15-year career that ended abruptly in 1964 at age 34 due to a chronic knee ailment.

    Farewell, King Caloy. You truly are a monumental loss to Philippine basketball history.
  4. PCYAA Basketball: Clash of the Titans

    PCYAA Juniors Division (High School) Standings – Saint Jude Catholic School (4-0), Philippine Cultural College (4-0), Pace Academy (2-2), Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy (2-2), Uno High School (2-2), Grace Christian College (2-2), Jubilee Christian Academy (0-4) and Saint Peter the Apostle School (0-4)
    There are only two unbeaten teams in the Juniors (High School) Division of the 3rd Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) basketball tournament held at the Uno High School gym in Tondo, Manila.

    And when an immovable object meets an irresistible force, something is bound to implode. This is the scenario that awaits defending titlist Saint Jude Catholic School and host Philippine Cultural College when the unblemished teams collide on Saturday, January 30, in their own version of the “Clash of the Titan” or “Gunfight at the O.K. Corral.”

    The description aptly applies as the colossal shootout will be held just 30 minutes after high noon.
    Both schools sport an impeccable 4-0 win-loss record and, more importantly, the No. 1 seed in the eight-school, seven-week competitions is at stake.

    The top two teams after the single-round elimination phase will enjoy a twice-to-beat advantage in the eight-team quarterfinal playoffs and even through the semifinals assuming both advance that far.

    After four games, the reigning champion Judenites have beaten 2014 titleholder Uno High School, 65-56; Grace Christian College, 79-37; Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy, 58-39; and Pace Academy, 62-50.

    The Seagulls, on the other hand, have claimed the scalp of Grace Christian College, 60-40; Pace Academy, 66-58; Uno High School, 58-55; and MGC-NLCA, 57-55.

    Note that victories by both teams have come against common opponents.

    A suffocating full-court pressure defense has been Saint Jude’s passport to perfection so far. What’s amazing is that coach Luis Nolasco’s well-conditioned troops have been able to sustain it from start to finish, forcing its foes to hoist bad shots under time constraints while also creating for itself an avalanche of fastbreak points off turnovers.

    SJCS’ share-the-wealth offense has been effective as well as four players are norming at least nine points per game. They are Maynard Nielsen Yap (11.7 ppg, he missed his team’s season opener), Lance Graeham Chan (10., Jared Christian Filipino (9. and tree-like Kendrick Ong (9.0), who also is averaging a team-best 10.8 rebounds along with 1.0 blocks every time out.

    A multi-faceted frontliner, the left-handed Yap has per-game clips of 6.0 boards, 3.33 steals and 1.7 assists as well.

    Heady Judenites guard Matthew Ang (6.8 ppg) has yet to heat up offensively, 14-year-old Mallechi Colby Lim is a threat from long range and Charles Janzen Sy (2.5 ppg) is a hard worker off the glass (6.3 rpg).

    A concern for Saint Jude is the health of Ong, who sustained a right shoulder injury Sunday against Pace Academy early in the third quarter and stayed on the bench the rest of the way.

    For Cultural, the meal tickets will have to come from veteran frontliners Kimson Chen and Daniel Manalang.
    Chen is one of only two players averaging a double-double (the other being Jubilee Christian Academy’s Lanz Kendrick Tan, who owns norms of 11.5 ppg and a league-best 16.5 rpg). He is netting 12.5 scores and 12.3 reebies along with 2.75 steals and 1.75 blocks.

    Manalang, a 6-2 center with a long wingspan, owns averages of 7.3 ppg, 7.5 rpg and 2.75 bpg. He, too, is capable of making a triple.

    The Seagulls can also count on heady guard Michael Manansala (8.3 ppg), John Patrick Garcia (8.0), bulky John Mark Santos (6.3 ppg, 4.8 rpg) and a pair of three-point shooters who can explode any time in Jharles Uy (4.0) and Lian Dy (4.0).

    No matter which team emerges victorious, the Saint Jude-Cultural encounter is expected to feature some pendulum-like spurts, offensive gems and breath-taking defensive tenacity.

    Defending champion Saint Jude Catholic School joined host Philippine Cultural College atop the Juniors Division standings of the 3rd Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) basketball competitions with a grinding 62-50 decision over Pace Academy Sunday afternoon at the Uno High School gym in Tondo, Manila.
    With the win, the Judenites climbed to 4-0 in a share of the leadership with PCC, which also owns a 4-0 record following Saturday's victory over Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy.
    SJCS took control early with its defensive pressure, forcing the Pacers to bad shots and turnovers. The Mendiola-based school never trailed at any time but neither could it put the Pacers away early.
    The Judenites were up, 14-10, after the first quarter and grabbed a 27-19 advantage at intermission behind frontliner Kendrick Ong's eight markers. Tyrone Tan had a team-high six points and Pol Antiporda had five for the Pacers after 30 minutes.
    Pace was down, 36-25, when SJCS went on a 10-0 run built around reserve Maynard Yap's four points, Charles Sy's pair of free throws and Lance Chan's back-to-back twinners to propel the reigning titlist to a commanding 46-25 lead.
    Jeff Lugay made a fielder to trim Pace's deficit to 19, 46-27, heading to the payoff period. Kelly Lihao provided some spark with teammate Antiporda struggling, tallying all his 10 points in the fourth quarter. But the closest the Pacers could come within was 11 points, 61-50, with 37.4 seconds left and the game already settled.
    In a low-scoring game that was a combination of good defense by Saint Jude and bad offense by both teams, no player from either side tallied in double figures till 8:10 remained in the contest.
    Yap got his 10th and 11th points on a bucket at the time and Jaded Ng was the first PA player in twin digit with a basket for his ninth and 10th markets with 7:24 left.
    Yap finished with 14 points, seven rebounds, four steals and two steals for the Judenites, who play PCC on Saturday January 30.
    Jared Filipino contributed 10 points, seven boards and five steals and Ong and Sy each tallied eight scores. Sy also grabbed nine rebounds and Ong took eight off the glass. Ong hurt his right shoulder with 8:50 left in the third quarter and sat out the rest of the way.
    Ng paced the Pacers with 14 points and seven boards. Lihao totaled 10 scores and Tan had nine. Lugay made eight points, all in the first 30 minutes, and plucked down five caroms. Antiporda was held to six points along with seven boards for the Pacers, whose record slipped to 2-2.
    In the Juniors Division, Grace Christian College posted its second straight win in four games with an easy 77-52 victory over winless Saint Peter the Apostle School in the PCYAA basketball tournament at the Uno gym.
    The game belonged to GCC from the get-go. It scored 10 unanswered points to grab a 14-1 lead, settling for a 20-7 advantage after the first quarter wherein John Patrick Lim duplicated SPAS’ total output.
    Grace Christian was up, 40-22, at intermission behind Lim’s 17 markers. The lead grew to 26, 59-33, after three quarters as SPAS never threatened. GCC enjoyed its largest lead at 31, 64-33, early in the payoff period.
    GCC, which evened its slate at 2-2, got 19 points, six rebounds and two steals from John Patrick Lim; 11 points and six boards from John Ing; and 10 markers from substitute Sebastian Choi.
    Tree-like Jehrend Tauro grabbed 16 rebounds along with five points for the winning team.
    Saint Peter showed up with only nine men (two of whom even fouled out – Earl Gabriel, 5:15 left, and Jomer Lu, 3:45, in the fourth quarter) and offered little resistance as it trailed by at least 20 points since midway through the third canto.
    The Peterians, who at 0-4 share the cellar with Jubilee Christian Academy (0-4), were bannered by guard John Garren Lim’s 16 points (two triples and 12 in the fourth quarter) and five boards, Gabriel’s 14 points and nine reebies and Elijah Sy’s ...
