    Highest flyers

    Hands down, Hector Calma is Adamson's greatest player. I'm not sure if he was a rookie on Adamson's 1978 UAAP champion team, but I do recall Adamson and him* getting media attention then......He was actually underrated early on in his career, but Ron Jacobs saw his potential then transformed him into one of the greatest point guards ever who possessed great court sense and being the right player in a Ron Jacobs system in the 1982 RP Youth and NCC squads and the SMB dynasty in the pros....very consistent midrange jumper. Never did make full use of the three pointer. Never needed to. With him on the court, the offense never sputtered.

    Other Falcons worth mentioning:

    Fernando "Nandy" Garcia- owned a good* looking jumper and great vertical leap.
    Romulo (Moses Mulong) Orillosa
    Juancho Estrada - very underrated but was a pesky scrapper. You'd want one like him on your team.
    EJ Feihl
    Jherome Ejercito
    Cahanding - Son of the late PBA Ref, was a capable reserve on those Alaska Air Force Teams....

    Too bad about the other big man Adamson produced, he was more trouble than he was worth, and thus not worth mentioning.......wawa naman. Hindi ko sinabing si Bono, pero, dapat na rin siyang mag-ingat, kundi, baka siya maging "could have been" instead of "one of the greatest," kung totoo ang tsismis ni Carrot....

    Nanghihinayang ako sa tuwing ako'y nakakabasa ng ganiyang klaseng tsismis...di hamak ang kaniyang scoring at rebounding numbers. But he seems to be in danger now of being nothing more than just a Big Mac eater now instead of a glass eater that hardcores want to see. He miight eat himself out of the UAAP... Local version of "Round Mound of Rebound"... figuratively. Is there a pun in there?* ......

    I don't know if he could "fly high" at the rate he's taking on excess weight... ;D

    Horacio "Asiong" Madamba could easily have become the greatest Falcon to ever fly were it not for injuries and a few star-crossed episodes in his personal life. He was a hoops legend of the late-1970's to the early 1980's and could do everything: shoot from up to 25 feet, slash and skywalk, dish, defend and play truly inspiring ball. He can still do a lot of those things up to now, even at age 40-plus, but he's mellowed down in the, uh, non-hoops pursuits he used to be into.

    Kenneth Duremdes - the PBA's own Captain Marbel - is yet another great Falcon, having broken scoring records in his time while playing on a great Adamson team that included marlou Aquino and EJ Feihl. That he scored as much as he did with the team he had is a testament to the immense talents of this former King Falcon. Although he tookj a while to fully acclimatize in the pros, he eventually became an MVP, joining the much-heralded ranks of Pinoy hoops gods.

    But if I had to pick between Asiong and Duremdes - in their varsity prime - Asiong would be my prohibitive pick, because he could do the one thing Kenneth had a tough time doing as a collegian: play defense. Plus Asiong reigned supreme in an era when college basketball was not the media event it is now, when fights before, during and after games was a veritable tradition, thus giving him the edge in the hardcore factor.

    Was Hector Calma the MVP during 1977 UAAP season when Adamson won its only title in the UAAP? who were the star players?

    Si Kenneth Duremdes pa din ang pinakamatinding Falcon of all time. Totoo maraming dumaan na magagaling sa Adamson gaya nina Asiong Madamba, Hector Calma, Eddie Laure, Jerome Ejercito, Apollo Lim, Marlou Aquino, Segundo "Bong" Dela Cruz at Melvin Mamaclay. Pero si Duremdes na siguro ang pinaka-gifted sa kanilang lahat, matindi ang abilidad lalo sa scoring. Kahit na mahina siya sa depensang tao-tao, matalino pa din siyang maglaro, alam niya kung saan pwedeng dalhin ang tao niya para may tulong parati.

    He was destined to be the next Jaworski. Same batch nya si Madamba pero siya lagi ang highest pointer ng Adamson then. When Ron Jacobs said just add a few inches to Hector Calma's ceiling, he can play anywhere in the world. Just imagine a 6'-2" Calma. He was a member of the Philippine National Team when he begged off from the Philippine Team due to an accident. He is Hector Calma's basketball idol, Ramon Calma. He was the real high flyer.
