    JUNIORS DIVISION

    Defending Juniors Division champion Saint Jude Catholic School registered a hard-earned 65-56 victory over Uno High School.

    Uno led by as much 11 points (21-10) late in the first quarter (which ended at 21-12) and was still ahead by 10, 36-26, with 7:21 remaining in the third quarter on a basket by Warren Spencer Tan when the Judenites detonated a 10-0 bomb within two minutes on three-point plays from both Lance Chan and Kendrick Ong and a Joao Filipino fielder to deadlock the count at 36-all.

    Following another deadlock at 38-38, SJCS outscored UHS, 6-2, the rest of the third period to take the upperhand, 44-41.

    Coach Luis Nolasco’s boys applied fullcourt pressure in the fourth period and never trailed thereafter as Chan exploded for 12 points, including a triple with 3:29 left that gave the Judenites a commanding 61-46 advantage.
    SJCS, which beat Jubilee Christian Academy, 2-0, in last year’s finals, posted its biggest lead, 65-47, before the Uneans scored the final points to make the score more respectable.

    Saint Jude, which kept top player Maynard Yap on the bench throughout the game for unspecified reasons, got 21 points from Chan, including 19 in the second half. Tree-like Kendrick Ong registered a double-double with16 points and 15 rebounds and Jared Filipino added 11 markers for the winning squad.

    Uno, which lost high-scoring Kenric Kok and Kyle Tan from last year’s fourth-place team due to graduation, was led by Warren Tan, who wound up with 19 points and seven reebies, and Kim Tanlo, who knocked in 12 scores, including 11 in the first half (eight in the first 10-minute quarter).

    Host Philippine Cultural College led from start to finish in beating Grace Christian College, 60-40, at the start of Juniors Division competitions.

    The Seagulls were up, 16-10, after the first 10-minute quarter and took a 28-18 advantage at lemon time. They heaed into the final 10 minutes with a 40-26 edge.

    John Patrick Garcia collected 13 points, five rebounds and three steals for PCC. Michael Manansala, Rafael Pangilinan and Edric Ngo each contributed eight points and Kimson Chen struggled with his field attempts, scoring only seven markers, but he grabbed 12 rebounds and stole the rock four times. Beanpole Daniel Manalang had five blocks to go with his three rebounds, two assists and two points.

    John Lim paced GCC with 21points, 10 rebounds and four steals and played heavy minutes as his team did not have the services of high-scoring Sebastian Choi and Seth Sim due to health-related problems.

    ASPIRANTS DIVISION

    Defending Aspirants Division titlist Saint Jude Catholic School whipped Uno High School, 85-45.

    The 13-and-under young Judenites jumped to a 13-0 advantage and was ahead from start to finish.

    If it's any consolation, Uno, which showed up with just eight players, outscored SJCS, 32-26, in the second half after storming to a 59-13 halftime lead. SJCS coach Joseph Guion kept skipper Kiefe Chu, Andrew Choa and Josiah Filipino on the bench in the third period, which Uno won, 18-5, after the trio combined for 31 points in the first 20 minutes.

    SJCS headed into the payoff period with a 64-31 edge. Chu finished with 22 points, including four triples and 14 scores in the second quarter. Choa totaled 19 markers and Filipino added 17.

    Matthew Lim topped Uno with 21 points, including 9-for-21 from the foul line. GianTimothy Chung added 13 markers for the losing squad.

    Big boy Marcus Lu collected 16 points, seven rebounds, eight steals and four blocks as Grace Christian College defeated Philippine Cultural College, 67-48, to open the Aspirants Division competitions.

    PCC raced to a 9-0 getaway before Lu was fielded in to douse off the fire. GCC trailed by just one point, 14-13, at the end of the first quarter and was still down by three, 29-26, at the half when rookie Ren Cobie Tolentino went to work.

    Tolentino, a point-sized playmaker who was fielded in with a minute remaining in the second quarter, went to work in the third quarter, tallying nine points in a huge 25-10 turnaround by GCC during the stretch.

  2. Season 3 PCYAA Goes Full Blast

    Season 3 of the Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) league goes full blast on Saturday, January 9 (10:00 a.m.), with the resumption of the basketball competitions and the inaugural staging of ladies’ high school volleyball.

    The PCYAA is composed of eight Chinese-Filipino schools in the Metro Manila area. These are Grace Christian College, Jubilee Christian Academy, Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy, Pace Academy, Philippine Cultural College, Saint Jude Catholic School, Saint Peter the Apostle Church and Uno High School.

    This year’s host is Philippine Cultural College, the school that produced all-time legendary Fortunato (Atoy) Co Jr., who later starred for Mapua Institute of Technology in the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the fabled Crispa squad in the professional league and is now the head coach of the MIT Cardinals.

    There are four divisions in the PCYAA basketball activities, two of which will get underway on Saturday and the other two having already been completed last month.

    Upcoming are the Juniors (High School) Division for players aged 18 and under and the Aspirants Division for boys aged 13 and under.

    All games at the juniors and aspirants levels with a round-robin elimination format and Thursday-Saturday-Sunday weekly playdates are to be held at the tradition-steeped Uno HS gym in Tondo, Manila.
    Saint Jude Catholic School is the defending titlist in the Juniors Division, having whipped Jubilee Christian Academy, 2-0, in last year’s best-of-three finals en route to a lily-white 11-0 win-loss overall finish.
    The Judenites remain a solid contender for a back-to-back crown despite losing two-time PCYAA leading scorer Renzel Yongco to graduation. (The epitome of a legit student-athlete the 6-1 Yongco is currently on the reserved list of De La Salle’s University Athletic Association of the Philippines unit and is the lone player on its 18-man cast to be on the academic Dean’s List taking up a tough – hold your breath – Industrial Management Engineering).

    Key veterans Maynard Yap, a bull-strong scoring and rebounding wizard; Matthew Ang, Lance Chan and Kendrick Ong and rookies Mallechi Lim and Charles Sy are back for former Jr. NBA Coach of the Year Luis Nolasco’s troops.

    In the Aspirants Division, reigning champion Makati Gospel Church-new Life Christian Academy is bidding for a second straight championship.

    A year ago, it beat first-year (2014) champion Philippine Cultural College, 2-1, in the titular series behind streak-shooting Ike Jordan Lim, who finished with a 21.8-point average – second-highest in the Aspi division behind Jubilee Christian Academy’s Kyle Nathan Barraza’s 27.1 ppg.

    Lim is returning with MGC’s Aspi team this year while moonlighting also as a member of his school’s Juniors squad. Barraza, on the other hand, has moved up to JCA’s Juniors contingent along with his Aspi mates Janaro Bautista. The duo is expected to help out holdover Lanz Tan, a burly frontliner, following the graduation exit of main men John Miko Cheng and Paolo Ismael Lim.

    Expected to offer MGC-NLCA tough opposition in the Aspirants Division are Grace Christian College, which has Season 2’s third-best point-maker Marcus Nathan Lu (17.6 ppg) back in its fold; Saint Jude Catholic School and Jubilee Christian Academy.

    Only seven schools are taking part in the Aspi games as Saint Peter the Apostle School has withdrawn at the 11-th hour.

    The inaugural PCYAA girls’ high school volleyball tournament will have five entries – Philippine Cultural College, Grace Christian College, Saint Jude Catholic School, Saint Peter the Apostle School and Pace Academy – with a double-round elimination format and the top-ranked team automatically advancing into the finals.
    All volleyball games will be held at the PCC Main gym in Manila.

    Earlier last month, Uno High School downed Jubilee Christian Academy to retain the ladies’ high school basketball title and Saint Jude Catholic School swept Pace Academy, 2-0, in the best-of-three finals of the boys’ basketball Developmental Division (for players age 11 and under) for a second consecutive championship.
  3. 2015 MASA Boys High School Basketball: A Perfect Season for Hope Christian HS

    Hope Christian High School capped a perfect 11-0 season with an emphatic 89-54 victory over Saint Stephen's High School Thursday afternoon (December 3) in the finals of the 18th Metropolitan Amateur Sports Association (MASA) high school basketball competitions at the Philippine Cultural College Main gym in Tondo, Manila.

    The Warriors jumped to a 10-0 lead and never looked back as the Stephenians offered little resistance since midway through the first 10-minute quarter.

    Marvel Jimenez tallied seven points and Kris Harvey Pagsanjan and Ryan Quiambao each totaled five - all three had a triple each - as HCHS grabbed a 26-10 edge after 10 minutes. Tree-like Luigi Laroco was the lone bright spot for SSHS with three buckets and six scores.

    HCHS' big men frolicked in the second canto as Mac Jacob (seven) and John Sacundo (five) combined for a dozen markers in the second quarter, offsetting hardworking Franz Yap's seven-point output for SSHS, to take a 48-26 lead at halftime.

    A 33-14 count in the third period propelled coach Jerson Cabiltes' charges to a commanding 81-40 lead heading into the final period as Pagsanjan knocked in three triples, Quiambao had two treys and he and Sacundo netted eight points apiece.

    HCHS was up by as much as 43 points, 85-42, before allowing its foe to score 10 consecutive points with its reserves on the floor.

    Hope Christian High, which placed third a year ago, produced four players with double-digit scores - Pagsanjan, 15; Quiambao, 13; Sacundo, 13; and Jacob, 11.

    Jacob also grabbed nine rebounds. Pagsanjan sank four threes and Quiambao had three triples.

    Saint Stephen's HS, which ranked fourth in 2014, was led by Yap, who registered a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds along with five steals. Laroco got nine points and six boards and Sean Ng shot only 3-for-19 from the field and was held to eight points.
  4. 3rd PCYAA Basketball: Uno Retains Ladies HS Crown

    2015-16 Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association
    Girls High School Basketball

    Girls just wanna have fun.

    And along the way, the Uno High School women’s basketball team has won back-to-back Philippine Ching Yuen Athletic Association (PCYAA) championships with an unblemished win-loss record each time.

    Last Tuesday (December 1), the top-seeded Uno belles scored a stunning 52-51 victory over second-ranked Jubilee Christian Academy in the Ladies Division finals at the Uno High School gym in Tondo, Manila. The win capped an 11-0 finish by the Lady Uneans for a second straight season in the tournament that also featured Grace Christian College, Immaculate Conception Academy, Saint Jude Catholic School and PCYAA season host Philippine Cultural College.

    The Uneans had swept the double-round elimination phase and entered the finals with a twice-to-beat advantage.

    In 2014, then-host Uno crushed Saint Jude Catholic School, 81-22, on Valentine’s Day in the PCYAA Ladies finals to complete an immaculate 11-0 campaign.

    Unlike before, the Lady Uneans this time had to scramble for the hard-earned title repeat as Jubilee Christian Academy gave them a run for their money.

    Uno trailed for much of the game. A floater by Michaella Angelica Co with 43 seconds remaining pushed the Uneans ahead. Teammate Gelsey Nikka Taguibao knocked in the first of her two free throw attempts with five ticks left for a 52-51 advantage before misfiring on her second that JCA rebounded for another crack at the basket on it offense.

    Uno, though, had one foul to give at the time and utilized it with 2.3 seconds left in the game clock. The Jubilee belles then made a last-ditch attempt at victory but were unsuccessful in their field try.

    That pushed the Uno ladies’ record to a lily-white 22-0 record over two PCYAA seasons under head coach Haina Lee, a former Most Valuable Player awardee (2010) in the Metro Manila Tiong Lian Basketball Association (MMTLBA) league during her heyday.

    Assisting Lee on the bench were Hiu Sheung Chan, Tiffany Co and Kharl Oaferina.

    “I want to thank the Uno community for its unwavering support,” said Milton Yu, Uno High School Sports Director and Prefect of Discipline. “One of the team’s great assets was that it played as a TEAM. Nobody cared for the individual stats or who would wind up as the highest pointer of the team. The unconditional support of the parents also played a huge role in our success this year.”

    Like Uno High School in the Ladies Division, Saint Jude Catholic School also retained its crown in the Developmental Division (for boys aged 11 and under).
    The Judenite kids swept Pace Academy, 2-0, in the best-of-three finals for a championship repeat. A year ago, SJCS edged Philippine Cultural College, 29-27, in their titular showdown.

    Meanwhile, the 3rd PCYAA basketball competitions resume on January 9, 2016, with games in the Juniors Division (Boys High School) and Aspirants Division (Boys aged 13 and under) to be held in the Uno High School.

    Defending titlists are Saint Jude catholic School in the Juniors Division and Makati Gospel Church-New Life Christian Academy in the Aspirants Division.
