    GAME RESULTS

    Aspirants Division
    Pace Academy 73 – Uno High School 66

    Juniors Division
    Pace Academy 66 – Uno High School 55

    TEAM STANDINGS

    Aspirants Division – Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy (5-0), Jubilee Christian Academy (4-1), Grace Christian College (3-2), Saint Jude Catholic School (3-2), Philippine Cultural College (2-4), Pace Academy (1-4) and Uno High School (0-5)

    Juniors Division – Philippine Cultural College (6-0), Saint Jude Catholic School (5-1), Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy (4-2), Grace Christian College (3-3), Pace Academy (3-3), Uno High School (2-4), Jubilee Christian Academy (1-5) and Saint Peter the Apostle School (0-6)

    It was a double victory for Pace Academy Thursday night (February 4) in the 3rd Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) basketball competitions at the Uno High School gym as its Aspirants team (aged 13-and-under) and Juniors team defeated Uno High School.

    In the Juniors Division, Pace Academy beat Uno, 66-55 victory over Uno to gain a share of fourth place with Grace Christian College with identical 3-3 records.

    Pace and Grace will duke it out on Saturday (February 6) with the winner taking the No. 4 spot armed with a twice-to-beat advantage over the No. 5 seed (the game’s loser) in the quarterfinal playoffs. Essentially, it a best-of-three series between the two teams.

    Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy (4-2) is guaranteed the No. 3 seed regardless of the result of its game against Uno on Saturday (February 6) because it has beaten both Pace and Grace and will prevail in a tie-breaker under the winner-over-the-other rule.

    Host Philippine Cultural College (6-0) and Saint Jude Catholic School (5-1) are assured of the No. 1 and No. 2 positions without regard to the outcome of their final elimination-round contests against winless Saint Peter the Apostle School (0-6) and Jubilee Christian Academy (1-5), respectively, on Sunday (February 7).

    In the Pace-Uno encounter, the Uneans knocked in the game’s first six points and were ahead by a point, 15-14, after the first quarter.

    The Pacers, however, came back to take the half, 36-25, as Tyrone Tan (eight) and Pol Antiporda (seven) combined for 15 markers during the second period.

    Pace entered the fourth canto ahead by five, 45-40, before never-say-die Uno crawled to within two points twice, 53-51 and 55-53, with three minutes remaining.

    Jeff Lugay and Tan each drained a triple as the Pacers grabbed 63-55 edge at the 1:31 mark. Jaden Ng scored four straight points to seal the deal, 65-55, for the Pacers with 29 seconds left.

    Pace got 16 points and three assists from Tan; 13 markers and 11 boards from Ng; 11 points (all in the first half) and 13 rebounds from Antiporda; and seven scores (six of them in the final period),14 boards and three blocks from man-mountain Theodore Getson Lim.

    Uno, whose win-loss record dropped to 2-4, was led by hulking Jesse Ching, who chalked up 20 points and hauled down 19 rebounds. Warren Tan added 12 points, five boards and four steals. Unean guard Jozshua Healy was injured early in the first quarter and did not return.

    In the Aspirants Division for players aged 13 and under, Pace Academy registered its first win in five assignments with a hard-earned 73-66 decision over Uno HS.

    Jashper Fernando played the hero's role as he tallied the young Pacers’ final 10 points.

    Pace held the upperhand most of the way, taking the half, 37-31, However, Uno rallied to grab a four-point advantage, 65-61, with 3:57 left behind the inside snipings of hardworking Matthew Lim.

    Lim, who finished with 27 points and 17 rebounds, fouled out with 2:22 left, allowing Pace to reassert its might once again.
    That's when Fernando, a transferee from Philadelphia High School, went to work.
    He netted 10 points while going 6-for-6 from the foul line, grabbed a pair of rebounds and blocked an enemy missile in the final 2:20. It was Fernando himself who broke a 65-all tie.
    Fernando wound up with 18 points and 10 boards for the Pacers, who were led by Airick Jaden Sy's 23 points.
    In addition to Lim’s contributions, Uno, which is still winless at 0-5, got 20 points and 13 rebounds from Gian Chung and 12 scores, five rebounds and three steals from spunky Jaden Alberto.

    PCYAA Boys Baskettball: PCC Juniors Stretches Win Streak to Six
    By Henry L. Liao

    Host Philippine Cultural College pulled off an improbableescape act Sunday morning (January 31), registering a stunning come-from-behind 69-67 victory over Jubilee Christian Academy in the 3rd Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) basketball competitions at the Uno High School gym in Tondo, Manila to stay unblemished in the Juniors Division at 6-0.
    Hotshot Kyle Barraza had 11 points (two triples, a twinner and a three-point play) of his 15 first-quarter points during JCA’s 13-0 start as PCC was held scoreless until Lian Dy connected on a fielder with 4:22 left.
    Jubilee was up, 21-10, after 10 minutes and was ahead by six points, 28-22, at halftime behind Barraza’s 19-point feast.
    Jubilee opened the second half with an 8-0 blast for a 36-22 advantage. Its lead grew to 18, 43-25, as Barraza continued to scorch the nets, chalking up nine points, including his third and final trifecta, in the third quarter. A Jharles Uy three cut PCC’s deficit to 10, 50-40, after three quarters.
    Seemingly, Jubilee was headed for a monumental upset, coming as it did a day after Cultural downed reigning Juniors Division titlist Saint Jude Catholic School, 54-53.
    Instead, it was the Seagulls who engineered a huge comeback, mesmerizing JCA to commit a maze of errors with their suffocating pressure defense. Down by 62-46 with 4.5 minutes left, PCC exploded a 15-0 bomb to come within one, 62-61. Uy sparked the 15-point explosion with eight straight points – a three-point play, a triple and two free throws – off three steals by himself.
    Burly Lanz Tan brought JCC’s lead back to three, 64-61, with a bucket at the 2:18 mark. Seagulls beanpole Daniel Manalang retaliated with a fielder of his own, 64-63; time down to 1:33. Following a Barraza reebie four ticks later for a 65-63 JCA lead, Kimson Chen drained the second of his two threes in the second half as PCC snared its first lead of the game, 66-65, with 1:08 remaining.
    Tan went 2-for-2 from the free-throw line with 30.9 ticks left as JCA regained the upperhand, 67-66. PCC’s John Patrick Garcia split his charity throws (21.1 seconds left) to deadlock the count for the only time at 67-all.
    Then came Chen’s heroics. With 10.8 seconds remaining, he made a layup off his steal to give the Seagulls a two-point lead, 69-67.
    Barraza, who finished with 33 points, had a golden chance to reverse the outcome as he was fouled by Manalang on a three-point attempt with 1.6 seconds left. Under tremendous pressure, Barraza muffed his first two charity shots then purposely misfired on the third as time out.

    Chen spearheaded PCC’s sixth victory in as many assignments with 16 points,10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. Uy contributed 13 points (including two triples and 11points in the second half and eight points in the final quarter) and five steals; John Mark Santos scored nine points; Manalang had nine points apiece and nine boards; and D’lanor Angelo Tan knocked in two triples for six scores.
    JCA, which dropped to 1-5, put to waste Barraza's 33-point effort and big man Lanz Tan's 21-point, 22-rebound feat.
    In other Sunday games in the Juniors Division, Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy climbed to the No. 3 position with an easy 60-45 decision over Grace Christian College and reigning titlist Saint Jude Catholic School cruised to a 77-40 victory over winless Saint Peter the Apostle School.

    7 p.m. – Uno HS vs. Pace Academy

    THE STREAK IS OVER.
    Defending Juniors Division champion Saint Jude Catholic School's 15-game winning streak over two seasons came to a abrupt halt Saturday afternoon (January 30) in the 3rd Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) basketball competitions at the Uno High School gym in Tondo, Manila when host Philippine Cultural College edged the Judenites, 54-53, on a free throw by Michael Manansala with 4.5 seconds left.

    The Judenites botched on its final offensive play when Daniel Pua failed to catch a pass from Joao Filipino.

    With the win, PCC lifted its record to a league-leading 5-0 while the Judenites fell to 4-1.

    Saint Jude Catholic School had posted a perfect 11-0 record during its title finish a year ago and entered Saturday’s game against PCC sharing the leadership with the Seagulls at 4-0.

    The PCC-SJCS encounter was delayed by 25 minutes due to the late arrival of the three referees.

    The Seagulls got off to a strong start, grabbing an 11-4 lead on the strength of back-to-back baskets by Lian Dy and a bucket by John Patrick Garcia. However, the Judenites came right back with a 9-0 blast capped by a fielder and a three by Lance Chan to gain the upperhand, 13-11.

    Stoic Kimson Chen drained a trey to end the first 10-minute quarter with a 14-13 edge for PCC.

    Trailing 22-21 following a basket by SJCS’ Maynard Yap, PCC banked on Jharles Uy’s six-point burst – a 3-for-3 effort from the free throw line and a three – to move ahead by five, 27-22 with 1:35 left at the half.

    Up 30-23 at intermission, beanpole Daniel Manalang opened third-quarter hostilities with a fielder off a Garcia assist as the Seagulls quickly jumped to a nine-point advantage, 32-23.

    SJCS came within one point, 34-33, on a Joao Filipino basket but PCC retaliated with a jumper by Chen for a 36-33 lead.

    That’s when the Judenites made their move, exploding a 9-0 bomb – one triple each from Filipino and Yap, a charity shot by Charles Sy and a field goal by Lance Chan – to register their largest lead in the game, 42-36. Just as quickly, though, Michael Manansala and Chen nailed a three each to deadlock the count for the second time at 42-all (the first at 36-all).
    Frontliner Adrian Pe closed out the third canto for a 44-42 lead by Saint Jude.

    There were four more deadlocks in the payoff quarter at 44-all, 47-all, 51-all and 53-all.

    SJCS had regained the upperhand, 53-51, on a Jared Filipino basket, time down to 1:04. But Manalang hit a soft jumper to equalize the count for a final time, 53-all, with 46.6 ticks remaining.

    After an offensive foul by SJCS (off a timeout) with 40.7 seconds left, Chen had a missed jumper rebounded by Manansala, time down to 11.8 seconds left.

    Play was momentarily stopped when Chen fell due to cramps. And when it resumed, Manansala fished a foul from Yap, sending him to the foul line with 4.5 seconds remaining. Manansala missed the first but made the second for the game-winning point, 54-53.

    Following a timeout, SJCS botched on its final offensive play when Daniel Pua failed to catch a pass from Joao Filipino, sending the PCC gallery into a frenzy.

    With the heart-stopping victory, the Seagulls grabbed the No. 1 spot in the Juniors Division standings with a 5-0 record and most likely secured the top seed entering the eight-team quarterfinal playoffs armed with a twice-to-beat advantage. (The second, third and fourth seeds also own a twice-to-beat incentive against their respective opponents in the quarters.)
