    UAAP, NCAA & CESAFI
    BLEACHER TALK By Rico S. Navarro
    The Freeman 07/16/2006

    With the PBA set to wrap up its All Filipino championship series and the PBL on its annual break, what time is it? Whose turn is it to shine on the basketball court? Welcome back college basketball! It's that time of the year again when basketball gives way to that segment of the family that gives us fans a refreshing break from all that we've seen in the pros.

    College basketball has always had a market of its own, at times outselling the PBA in terms of ticket sales and popularity. While the pro league is always considered as the big league in any basketball family, college basketball purists believe that college ball is right up there with the pros. And they do have a point. A brief look at the collegiate scene will reveal that the UAAP and NCAA are acknowledged as the top two leagues of the country with all other leagues following behind. I'd like to put Cebu's CESAFI up there with the "Big Two" but I'll have to be very honest and admit that we're slowly slipping away from them.

    Let's face it. College basketball, with its leagues as its products, is like an industry in itself that is being "sold" to consumers who we'll call the basketball fan. If we were to make a common sense estimate as to which leagues are the market share leaders in terms of "sales" and consumer following, the UAAP and NCAA would come out as top-of-mind replies. Like any other market leader, the UAAP and NCAA stand out above the rest in terms of competition, popularity and following. The biggest indicator for this? They're the only leagues with nationwide live TV coverage, an abundance of sponsors and loyal fans.

    The league's managers have done a good job of building the image of these leagues as the best of college basketball. TV coverage has obviously been a big boost to this position, giving the two leagues exposure to nationwide fans by default as the other leagues don't have TV coverage at all. Aware that it can't directly compete with the PBA, the UAAP and NCAA have taken the approach of owning that segment of the basketball industry that the PBA can't "touch."

    I cite these as an example with the hope that Cebu's very own CESAFI will learn from these case studies and apply these key learning to their thrust to being recognized as a top league in the country.

    But first things first. What is the CESAFI's stand in this regard? Do they want the league to create a name for itself? What are its dreams? Its long term goals? Its vision? Second. Assuming that the CESAFI wants to take this path, it's important that they take a look at things from the perspective of the basketball fan.





    Who is the CESAFI in the eyes of the basketball fan? Does the league have a relevant attachment to the basketball fan? I don't want to pre-empt such a "survey" but I'll make an educated guess that to the eyes of the basketball fan, the CESAFI is just another league outside of the UAAP and NCAA. We're just at the same level as the NCRAA, SCUAA, and all those other alphabet basketball leagues trying hard to be at par with the UAAP and NCAA. Are we satisfied with this or do we want to go beyond this current situation? It may also help if we look back at history and ask how the CESAFI's yesteryears fared. How was the CAAA received in the past? How was it when compared to the UAAP and NCAA? And how is it now?

    The CESAFI finds itself in a situation where it can actually create a big name for itself and has many things going for it. For starters, Cebu schools are the first choices of high school basketball prospects from the Visayas and Mindanao who want to pursue their basketball careers at the collegiate level. But then again, I could be wrong with the trend that has seen a growing number of young Vismin upstarts now playing in the UAAP and NCAA. Moreover, basketball fans in Manila are aware that the best talents from the south are products of Cebu basketball, e.g. Dondon Hontiveros, Junthy Valenzuela, Roger Yap, Donbel Belano, Joseph Ronald "Baby Shaq" Quiñahan, etc. This gives the CESAFI an obvious starting point to build its image, doesn't it?

    From a competitive standpoint, we have proven that we aren't far behind. UV has been a consistent Final Four team in the Champions' League or national inter-collegiate championship. Every time they play in Manila, they're always viewed as a threat to topple either the UAAP or NCAA champs. Their past losses in such tournaments have been to the likes of FEU, UE, and San Sebastian, all top-notch teams. If you drill down to the roots of these losses, it always boils down to the lack of mental toughness due to the absence of quality competition on local shores. From a physical standpoint man-for-man, UV can match up against any team in Manila.

    It's high time that the CESAFI take a stand now before it's too late. Do they want to be recognized to be at the same level as the UAAP and NCAA? Do they recognize the opportunities that are there? Or are they satisfied with what they have and are just willing to coast along? And let the UAAP and NCAA increase their leadership gap? I think the answer is a no-brainer.

    Lancers skewer Warriors
    By Jaime A. Frias
    Sun.Star Correspondent

    The University of Visayas Green Lancers routed the University of San Carlos Warriors, 89-71, in the 2006 Cesafi Basketball Seniors yesterday at the Cebu Coliseum.

    The much-experienced Green Lancers outclassed the Warriors in all quarters of the game.

    UV head coach Boy Cabahug said the victory is a signal that getting their six-straight title this season is possible.

    At the onset, the Warriors relied on bull-strong Enrico John Llanto, the acrobatic Niño Ramirez, sweet-shooting Ryan Carlo Padayao and playmaker Vernini Tanga-rorang to match the Lancers’ run-and-gun play.

    But the Lancers were too tough to crack.

    Slow

    The Warriors' intensity was not enough as the Lancers took the lead in the first quarter, 20-16.

    The Lancers started slow in their offense at the second quarter but still maintained the lead and close down the canto at 41-35.

    Coach Cabahug sent some of his first-stringers to do the demolition job and pulled a commanding 29-14 run to end the third period at 70-49, and maintained a double-digit lead until the endgame.

    "We started good in the first quarter but I have limited cards at my hand. I lack relievers to continue the momentum," said Warriors head coach Jay Ramirez, whose brother, PSC chairman William Ramirez, was watching the game until the third quarter.

    Cabahug, in contrast, said, “I’m confident with my boys. In fact, I sent all my stringers and the bench to have some exposure.”

    Tight fight

    UV's Von Harry Lanete and 6-foot-7 tower Rino Berame tallied 12 points.

    In the first game of the Juniors division, the UV Junior Lancers defeated the Don Bosco Junior Grey Wolves, 80-62.

    From a tight fight in the first half and third quarter, the Lancers outlasted the Grey Wolves at the endgame, capitalizing on the absence of the Wolves' Vicent Villamor, who fouled out in the last 6 minutes.

    In the second game of the Juniors division, the University of Cebu Junior Webmasters dominated all quarters to beat the USC Junior Warriors, 83-67.

    UC's Mark Gil Panerio scored a game-high 19 points while Robinson Mohammad Jr. added 17 points.

    Scores (Seniors):

    UV Green Lancers 89–Lanete 12, Bename 12, Dennison 11, Rodriguez 9, Omolon 9, Akad 6, Diputado 6, Arda 4, Pepito 4, Sendrijas 4, Manigque 4, Pitogo 4, Canoy 2, Lasala 2

    USC Warriors 71–Llanto 25, Ramirez 22, Padayao 8, Tangarorang 5, Cabajar 4, Mercader 3, Gallarde 2, Joven 2

    UV survives UC scare
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 07/31/2006

    UC proved it is a great running team, but UV showed the stuff champions are made of.

    The University of the Visayas Green Lancers extended their unbeaten streak to three after escaping with a 74-72 victory over the University of Cebu Webmasters in the lone collegiate match of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event last night at the Cebu Coliseum.

    For the second consecutive night, the Webmasters blew away chances of winning.

    With the game still within reach after Allain Abellanosa's two free throws that put UC within a hairline, 72-73, in the final one minute of the game, Abellanosa was more than a villain than a hero.

    This as Abellanosa was slapped with a travelling violation as he slipped near the undergoal while on the way for a drive that could have given UC the lead with still 30 seconds remaining.

    Again, Abellanosa failed to complete a steal when he muffed a point blank lay-up in what could have been another chance for UC to grab the lead.

    Worse, Abellanosa was called for foul against Morsie Akad, who then split his charities to peg the final count.

    The Lancers controlled the game most of the way and had their largest lead at 12 points, 29-17, early in the second period.

    Rino Berame worked doubly hard to top UV with 18 points, whileAkad finished with 15 points including the last four-point cluster that sealed UV's victory.

    The Lancers did it even with Jayford Rodriguez scoring only four points and their well-polished rookies going ice-cold.

    Rez, who waxed hot in the first two periods, led UC with 23 points, while Abellanosa and Jonathan Canceran had 16 points apiece. Their efforts weren't enough as UC fell to 1-2.

    The Lancers' cliff-hanger victory became the saving grace as the Baby Lancers earlier suffered a 75-85 loss to the USP-F Baby Panthers.

    In the other secondary game, the USC Baby sWarriors defeated the CIT Widkittens, 90-81, while the USC Lady Warriors defeated the USJR Lady Jaguars, 72-64, to take the solo lead in the women's division.

    The scores

    First game (Women's)

    USC (72)- De los Reyers 27, Ceniza 15, Amoguis 9, Lim 7, Cañete 6, Tan 3, Alerta 2

    USJR (64)- Malinao 29, Gasal 9, Sta. Cruz 8, Trazona 7, Chiong 6, Cabusao 2, Baclaan 2, Sollano 1 Halftime: 27-30

    Second Ggme (Juniors)

    USP (85) - Dysam 22, Dela Cruz 12, Maraño 10, Canoy 8, Boldalba 8,Olivar 6, Muñez 3, Yu 2, Elorde 2

    UV (75) - Lao 35, Mercader 18, Camay 9, Malig-on 4, Malagar 3, Gonzaga 2 Halftime: 36-39

    Third game (Juniors)

    USC (90)- Codilla 26, Bercede 25, Caumenral 16, Delos Santos 7, Negapatan 5, Tiu 4, Saberon 3, Alocillo 3, Otida 2, Omolon 2,

    CIT (81)- Augusto 43, Aranas 15, Labagala 9, Ybañez 7, Quiroga 4, Espinoza 2, Cabrera 2, Isidto 2 Halftime: 44-38

    Fourth game (Seniors)

    UV (74)- Berame 18, Akad 15, Canoy 9, Lanete 6, Dipoutado 5, Rodriguez 4, Sendrijas 4, Arda 4, Dennison 2, Esperat 2

    UC (72)- Rez 23, Abellanosa 16, Canceran 16, Abatayo 8, Julianne 5, Cadayong 2, Fajardo 2 Halftime: 44-36

    CIT, USC seek first win
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 08/02/2006

    The Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT) Wildcats and the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors go up against each other as they both seek for their first win in today's lone collegiate match of the 2006 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the Cebu Coliseum.

    In the first game of a featured double-header, the University of Southern Philippines-Foundation (USP-F) Baby Panthers aim to extend their winning streak to three as they take on the Don Bosco Greywolves.

    The Warriors, one of the pre-tournament favorites, are surprisingly mired at the cellar following back-to-back defeats to the UV Green Lancers and USP, 71-89 and 82-85, respectively.

    To wake up from deep slumber, the Warriors must not only rely on their Three Musketeers who played in commmercial league namely Enrico Llanto, Niño Ramirez and Vernini Tangarorang because in the end, they are likely to do more harm than good especially if the defense are thrown against them the entire game.

    Also, fatigue factor may take its heavy toll on the Warriors should they let the Big Three do all the scoring.

    The Warriors should consider that experience might be the ace for the Wildcats, who are a bit older than them and more intact because the bulk of their reliables last season are still there.

    Some of the Wildcats' key players to turn into are Emilio Aniñon, Sherwin Abobo, Marvin Abapo, Jerry Lumongsod, Ramel Guevarra and Ronel Villarba.

    Last year, the Warriors and the Wildcats had an even 1-1 head-to-head record. The Warriors escaped with a 72-70 win in their first meeting at the Cebu Coliseum, but the Wildcats got even sweat-free as they won by forfeiture over USC, which was serving a one-game suspension at that time for figuring in a 'basketbrawl' with UC at the USC gym.

    Likewise, USP and Don Bosco went on to a 1-1 tie last year. Don Bosco drew first blood, 43-41, in Minglanilla, but USP hit back via a 63-60 decision in their rematch played in Talisay.

    Now enjoying a clean 2-0 slate after victories over CIT, 82-74, and UV, 85-75, the Baby Panthers are headed to their best ever start in CESAFI history if they succeed in slaughtering the Wildkittens early this afternoon.

    Expected to be at the helm of USPF's campaign is ace playmaker Franz Dionne Dysam along with Norman Bordalba Jr., Charles Jan Canoy, Raymund Olivar, URH de la Cruz and Lawrence Miguil Maraño, a hard-working post player.

    Panthers eye win 2 in CESAFI cagefest
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 08/05/2006

    The University of Southern Philippines-Foundation (USP-F) Panthers will eye for their second win as they go up against the Don Bosco College in today's lone collegiate match of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the USC gym.

    For coach Raul Latonio Sr. and his Panthers, winning tonight could be crucial as they will move up to third place for a possible 2-1 win-loss record.

    Also, a victory over the Bosconians is timely as they need a morale booster before they meet the surging USJ-R Jaguars tomorrow in what could be the Panthers most difficult challenge aside from that of the UV Lancers come August 16.

    Likewise, two-time women's champion University of Cebu (UC) Lady Webmasters are seeking for a 2-0 tie with idle USC Lady Warriors when they face the Cebu Doctors University White Mares in the preliminary.

    Another exciting game in store today is the encounter between secondary defending champion University of the Visayas Baby Lancers who collide with the University of San Carlos Baby Warriors.

    In the other high school game, winless Cebu Institute of Technology Wildkittens hope to snap a two-game skid to prevent further agony as they battle against another winless team the University of San Jose-Recoletos Baby Jaguars.

    The 1-1 Panthers are badly needing a victory over Don Bosco, hoping to improve their rcord to 2-1 and thereby also moving up to third place behind UV (3-0) and USJ-R (2-0).

    Against the rookie team Don Bosco, the only danger for the Panthers is an upset and that would be a different story in tomorrow's quest against the Jaguars.

    In their losing debut against USJ-R, 73-112, it was apparent Don Bosco was still disorganized having played in the CESAFI for the first time. Obviously, coach Rudy Enterina must have already learned lessons from that defeat and made some adjustments for today's encounter with the Panthers.

    They can count on some reliables including Moncrief Rogado, Randy Colonia, Bryan Travero, Dominic Ceniza, Jason Bartolabac, Marlon Demape and rookie center Cleford Maguate.

    Mark Abarquez, Russel Litorja, Jefford Aldave, John Lester Sunga, Richard Vargas and Cyril Pedros are among the other Bosconians to watch.

    Meanwhile, the revitalized Baby Warriors rely on Robert Gines Codilla, Dan Junior Bercede, Mark Daniel Caumeran, Nilton John Otida, Jose Adrianne Alocillo and John Philip delos Santos.

    The Baby Lancers who wanted to bounce back from their 75-85 loss to USP-F last week, rely on their starting unit including Edrian Lao, Phil Mercader, Christian Camay, Roger Malig-on and Lymuel Malagar.

    CESAFI 2006 Basketball: Webmasters rebound
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 08/08/2006

    Playing like wounded tigers, the University of Cebu Webmasters made up of their heart-breaking back-to-back losses last week and vented their ire against the Cebu Institute of Technology Wildcats, scoring a masterful 103-81 victory in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) collegiate basketball event the other night at the Cebu Coliseum.

    The Webmasters, who settled to a 1-1 tie with the Wildcats last year, improved their win-loss record to 2-2 and needs only to win their last two games against the USC Warriors this coming Saturday and against Don Bosco College on August 20 to assure themselves of securing at least a spot in the top four behind UV, USP and USJR.

    Last year, the Webmasters made it to the finals but lost to the mighty UV Green Lancers via a sweep but not after snapping the Lancers' 54-0 record by pulling off with a 75-68 win at the UV gym.

    The Webmasters, who were also effective in their halfcourt trap and scoring in transition, kept the Wildcats guessing on their offense because topgunner Allain Abellanosa had found his range later in the third period. But he still managed to score 15 points.

    The tandem of Jonathan Canceran and defensive guard Jared Kane Abatayo led the Webmasters' offense with 17 points apiece while Franco Cipriano finished with 12 points.

    The Webmasters suffered two unforgettable losses last week as they blew up a nine-point lead in the final 2:58 in the final period and lost by five points, 99-104, to the USJR Jaguars who now fell to 2-1 after losing to the USP Panthers, 82-77, in a physical game that resulted into the ejection of Panther offguard Bryan Travero.

    Against UV, the Webmasters collapsed in the closing seconds and what they needed was a basket by Abellanosa that would have been the marginal shot which he missed point-blank due to a defensive pressure.

    The scores

    UC (103) - Abatayo 17, Canceran 17, Abellanosa 15, Cipriano 12, Flanco 9, Rez 8, Ceniza 8, Fajardo 7, Agas 4, Abella 2, Cadayong 2, Tulda 2

    CIT (81) - Lumongsod 15, Aniñon 13, Abobo 10, Guevarra 8, Reyes 8, Villarba 7, Abatayo 7, Abapo 5, Montealto 5 Halftime: 40-38

    UV eyes explosive return
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 08/12/2006

    The well-rested University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers look forward to another romp as they go up against the winless Don Bosco College today in the 6th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event, which shifts action to the USJ-R gym in Brgy. Basak, this city.

    Earlier this afternoon, the University of Southern Philippines-Foundation Baby Panthers, unbeaten in three games so far, shoot for the solo lead in the secondary division when they go up against the University of San Carlos Baby Warriors.

    In the other secondary match, the UV bantams battle the USJ-R Baby Jaguars, while capping the day's quadruple-header is the showdown between the USC Warriors and University of Cebu Webmasters in the collegiate level.

    The Lancers are expected to make an explosive comeback after an 11-day respite since surviving a scare against UC last July 30 at the Cebu Coliseum. In that game, UV was on the brink of defeat, but fortunately grinded through a 74-72 victory to avert what could have been its only second defeat in its five-year dynasty.

    If there's a matter of interest to the viewing public heading into today's UV-Don Bosco battle, it will be the meeting of the minds between two former in Elmer "Boy" Cabahug and Rudy Enterina.

    But with UV's supreme manpower advantage, Don Bosco bench tactician Enterina is already about to accept defeat against the team he helped win at least two CAAA titles during his heydays under coaches Hermes Sumalinog and Raul Latonio, Sr.

    Cabahug is not only banking on height, but also speed and quickness of his players.

    Guys like Rino Berame, Jayford Rodriguez, Morsie Akad, Jayzar Esperat and Von Harry Lanete are among UV's top guns, while Don Bosco's only potential players to watch include Celso Colegado, Jefford Aldave, Russel Litorja, Eduardo Mabano, John Nepomuceno and John Lester Sunga.

    Green Lancers chalk up fourth straight win
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 08/13/2006

    The University of the Visayas Green Lancers demolished the all-rookie Don Bosco College, 127-69, to lead the winners in "The Demolition Sunday" of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the USJR gym in Basak.

    The UV Baby Lancers earlier defeated the USJ-R Baby Jaguars, 85-59, while the University of southern Philippines-Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers pounded on the University of San Carlos (USC) Baby Warriors, 92-65, to remain unbeaten in four starts.

    Now with an overall 62-1 win-loss record, the Lancers were effortless in scoring their fourth straight victory this season, this time coach Elmer "Boy" Cabahug and assistant Al Solis had he luxury of fielding in all his 14 players and all of them scored.

    The Lancers, who will be having another acid test tonight against the 2-1 USJ-R Jaguars, ran the breaks effectively and were scoring easily in transition that the game was already predictable as early in the second period when they took a 55-22 halftime spread.

    With their near flawless offense scoring in transition against Don Bosco by employing a half court trapping defense, the Lancers reached the 100-point plateau as early at 6:03 in the fourth period, 101-48 after two free throws by Jayford Rodriguez, one of the five starting crews, who was only fielded back in the fourth period along with Rino Berame, Eduardo Arda, Morsie Akad and Von Harry Lanete.

    In fact, not the regular starters topscored for the Lancers because Cabahug and Solis were giving Eulogio Lasala Jr. a lengthy playing time to lead their offense with 21 points. Rodriguez and Frangel Omolon had 19 and 17 points, respectively for the Lancers.

    The 0-3 Don Bosco was led by John Lester Sunga with 24 points while the only other player who scored in double figures was Richard Vargas with 11.

    Meanwhile, the 4-0 Baby Panthers of coach Camilo Go was led by Francis Dion Dysam with 26 points while the Baby Warriors, who dropped to 1-4, were led by Robert Gines Codilla with 19 and Nilton John Otida with 14 points.

    The Baby Lancers, who improved their win-loss record to 3-1, were led by Phil Mercader and Christian Camay with 12 and 11 points, respectively.

    Joshua Heredia led the winless Baby Jaguars, who now fell to 0-3, the only winless high school teams so far.

    CESAFI Basketball 2006: Lancers score twin kill
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    The Freeman 08/17/2006

    Morsie Akad anchored a fourth period surge to carry the offensive load for the University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers in scoring an 80-65 win over the University of the Philippines Foundation (USPF) Panthers yesterday in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) basketball event at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Earlier, the UV Baby Lancers defeated the Cebu Institute of Technology (CIT) Wildkittens, 79-63, to complete a twin kill for the Visayanians.

    When the Panthers threatened to come close in the fourth period being down by only four points, 59-83, at the start, Akad took matters into his own hands by scoring nine of his 19 points in the fourth period, including a triple that gave the Lancers their largest lead at 15 points, 80-65.

    The Lancers completed a 6-0 sweep in the elimination and improved their win-lossrecord to 64-1 in a five-year reign.

    Having the height advantage, the Lancers allowed the Panthers to get going in the first half where they engaged into a see-sawn battle but decided to let Rino Berame do his job at the paint where he forced his counterpart from USP, Clefford Maguate, into four fouls.

    Berame finished with 18 points for the Lancers.

    Earlier, the Panthers could not sustain their momentum going into the second half because they lack the playmakers to control the ball compared to the Lancers, who were starred by Von Harry Lanete, Ritchum Dennison, Chris Victor Diputado and Frangel Omolon.

    Except for Berame, the other UV center were not potential scorers last night but too bad, USP ace center Maguare was also out of his element as he was outsmarted by Berame in all aspects not just in offense and defense but also in rebounding.

    One bright offensive contributor last night was rookie Rodel Quinao, who was so effective in his perimeter jumpshots to back-up the scoring cudgels of Moncrief Rogado and Rivera.

    Rogado topscored with 14 points while Quinao and Rivera had 12 and 10 points, respectively.

    The missing links for the Panthers were Randy Colina and Dominic Ceniza, who only made two points each.

    Earlier, Edrian Lao and Phil Mercader proved to be the 1-2 punch for the Baby Lancers as they led their team's offense. Lao had 19 points while Mercader had 14 points.

    The win gave the Baby Lancers a 4-2 win-loss record while the Wildkittens dropped to 1-4.
