    Basketball kicks off Olympic Festival today
    mb.com.ph




    BASKETBALL KICKS off the staging of the first Philippine Olympic Festival, the Philippine Olympic Committee’s own version of the national games, today with four teams, two each from the UAAP and the NCAA, clashing today at the Tinga Stadium in Taguig City.


    Far Eastern University, the reigning back-to-back champion in the UAAP, collides with San Beda College in the main game at 3:30 p.m., each raring to come out strong and gain the momentum in the week-long tournament.

    Philippine Christian University and National University tangle in the first game at 2 p.m., both also hoping to set each other’s bid in motion in the single round robin tournament organized by the Philippine Basketball Federation, Inc.

    Under the format, the teams will be credited with 2 points for a win, 1 point for a loss and 0 for a default. Ties will be resolved by FIBA rules on tiebreakers.

    The top two teams after the single round elims will clash for the gold medal while the two other squads dispute third place honors.

    POC chairman Robert Aventajado will grace the opening rites set at 1 p.m. while City Mayor Sigfrido Tinga will declare the games open.

    The RP Olympic Festival is actually slated June 21-25 in 17 different venues all over the country with basketball getting the honor to kick off the inaugural staging of the event held in conjunction with the worldwide celebration of the Olympic movement.

    The Olympic Festival, expected to draw in a record field of more than 7,000 athletes in 27 sports disciplines, is patterned after Australia’s national games, which also synchronizes the hosting of sporting event annually.

    It also hopes to promote the Olympic ideals of friendship, solidarity and fair play.

    The Tams, bannered by the pro-bound Arwind Santos, battle the NU Bulldogs at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday (June 15) while the Red Lions and the Dolphins mix it up in the 2 p.m. opener.

    The tournament, hosted by the City of Taguig through Mayor Sigfrido Tinga, takes a rest day on Friday before play resumes on Saturday (June 17) with San Beda taking on NU at 2 p.m. and FEU facing PCU at 3:30 p.m.

    The finals is set on June 21 with the top two teams clashing for the gold medal at 3:30 p.m. while the two others fight it out for the bronze at 2 p.m.

    Dolphins, Tams score in opener

    The Philippine Star 06/15/2006

    Philippine Christian U rode on two big scoring splurges bridging both halves to seize control then hung tough in the clutch to fashion out a 65-59 victory over National U at the start of the basketball competition in first Philippine Olympic Festival at the Tinga Stadium in Taguig City yesterday.

    Gabby Espinas came through with a double-double performance of 14 points and 13 rebounds while Jason Castro and Lisztian Amparado each had 11 points for the Dolphins, who built a 52-38 lead after three quarters to cushion the impact of their faltering finish.

    The victory thus gave the Taft-based cagers the big headstart in the four-team tournament which kicked off the staging of the Philippine Olympic Committee’s own version of the national games slated June 21-25 in 17 different venues all over the country.

    Jeffrei Allan Chan fired 22 points while Jonas Villanueva added 13 as Far Eastern U blasted San Beda College, 93-80, in the other game.

    The Dolphins, priming up for the NCAA, held the Bulldogs to seven second quarter points while scoring 17 of their own to turn a 15-20 deficit into a 32-27 lead at the turn.

    They sustained that momentum in the third and outscored their rivals, 20-11, to pad their lead to 52-38 at the end of the third period.

    The Bulldogs, with Edwin Asoro and Jason Malcontento on the firing end, made one big run in the fourth but ran out of time, enabling the Dolphins to clinch the victory.

    Asoro and Malcontento combined for 28 points but the duo failed to draw solid support from the rest with Dave Catamora and Howard Flor scoring nine and seven, respectively.

    The Dolphins also outrebounded their foes, 50-31, and scored 15 second chance points as against the Bulldogs’ nine.

    Despite missing the services of Aljamal and Gamalinda, the Red Lions defeated the PCU Dolphins this afternoon by a margin of 3 points.

    PCU reportedly walked out of the game due to perceived bad officiating but the team eventually returned to finish the game.

    Lions bounce back; Tams in final

    The Philippine Star 06/16/2006

    San Beda College scrambled for a 59-57 victory over Philippine Christian U yesterday to get back into the thick of things in the basketball competition of the first Philippine Olympic Festival at the Tinga Stadium in Taguig City yesterday.

    Far Eastern U outplayed National U in the second half and coasted to a 63-54 victory to clinch one of the two final berths with its second straight victory.

    The Tams, who beat the Red Lions, 93-80, Wednesday, silenced the Bulldogs in the third period as they broke away from a tight 27-26 game at the turn to post a 47-40 lead en route to the victory.

    The Red Lions nearly came out winner by forfeiture as the Dolphins walked out of the game with still 1:46 left in the contest and San Beda holding on to a 56-51 lead.

    This came after PCU coach Junel Baculi refused to leave the playing court after being assessed a second technical foul.

    Jun Bernardino, in his capacity as commissioner of the NCAA where San Beda and PCU are members, and in consultation with tournament director Nic Jorge and chairman Moying Martelino, stepped in and asked the volatile PCU mentor to leave and let assistant coach Joel Dualan and his players finish the game.

    Baculi did leave, and so were his players, prompting tournament officials to issue a 15-minute warning for the Dolphins to come back and finish the game or lose by forfeit.

    The Dolphins finally came out to resume play, nearly snatching the victory if not for a missed three-point attempt at the buzzer.

    Baculi was earlier given a warning and a technical for incessant complaining. A second technical was slapped on him in the last 1:46, but he refused to leave and continued to rant against officiating.

    John Escobal fired 13 points while Samuel Ekwe chipped in eight for the Red Lions.

    San Beda, set to play with National U at resumption tomorrow of the event backed by Globe, Fontana Leisure Park, Petron, Ama Computer University and Creativity Lounge, thus evened its card to 1-1, in a tie with PCU, which beat NU, 65-59, also Wednesday.
