    NCRAA cage tourney gets underway
    mb.com.ph



    Games Today (Olivarez College gym) 9 a.m. opening ceremony 11 a.m. Olivarez College vs ACSAT 12:30 p.m. PATTS vs EAC 2 p.m. UDM vs NCBA



    NEW TALENTS are expected to emerge when the 14th Petron-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament gets going today at the Olivarez College gym.


    The Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals are back from a one-year suspension and will start their campaign to regain the title they should have defended last season when they clash with PATTS School of Aeronautics.

    With playmaker Bong Melocoton gone, the Generals will bank on a new generation of standouts as they plunge into action in the second match of the day at 12:30 p.m.

    Earlier, Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings will try to make their presence felt when they take on host Olivarez College earlier at 11 a.m. after colorful opening rites at 9 a.m.

    Unibersidad de Manila will meet the National College of Business and Arts Wildcats at 2 p.m. in the tournament which has Molten and Mikasa as the official ball.

    "This is a worthy cause which should be supported. A lot of talents come from this league. Petron is all about giving equal opportunity to the youth. We thought this would be a good start," said Charmaine Canillas, who is Petron’s advertising and promotions executive.

    The tournament boasts of 11 cage squads seeing action, and with a proud history of having produced cagers, who have excelled beyond their collegiate years.

    Among the stars who have brought prominence to the league as former Philippine School of Business Administration standout Marc Pingris and the De Ocampo brothers, Yancy and Ranidel, and Chris Pacana, who are all products of the St. Francis Doves.

    This is also the league where Koy Banal started his brilliant coaching career after he once led the PSBA Jaguars to a crown following a 14-0 sweep.

    The Doves, coached by Gabby Velasco, will seek their second straight crown after taking it last year from the Arellano University Flaming Arrows.

    The Flaming Arrows, with Leo Isaac calling the shots, will be bannered by a young set of players, and will give the regular campaigners a hard time as they try to fight their way into the finals again.

    Arellano five tames PSBA; La Salle-Dasmariñas wins



    Inquirer

    Published on Page A23 of the November 21, 2006 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

    GAMES WEDNESDAY (EAC Sports Center)
    9 a.m. -- UDM vs PATTS (men)
    10:30 a.m. -- ACSAT vs Arellano (men)
    12 nn -- PSBA vs EAC (men)
    1:30 p.m. -- St. Francis vs EAC (women)
    3 p.m. -- St. Francis vs EAC (junior)

    ARELLANO UNIVERSITY and La Salle-Dasmariñas displayed what they are capable of doing yesterday in the 14th Petron-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men’s basketball tournament at the San Andres Socio Civic Center court in Malate, Manila.

    Arellano, which changed its moniker this year from the Flaming Arrows to the Chiefs, in honor of the Philippines’ first Chief Justice Cayetano Arellano, sustained a fluid scoring attack to tame Philippine School of Business Administration, 84-75, in this 11-school tournament backed by Petron Corp.

    On the other hand, the La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots squandered a 27-point advantage, but leaned on the heroics of Angel Salado in the endgame to put away the National College of Business and Arts Wildcats, 93-88.

    The victories enabled the Chiefs and the Patriots to join the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals and the Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings in the early lead at 1-0.

    The Wildcats, who missed point guard Lester Opalia to a one-game suspension after he was thrown out during their won game over PATTS School of Aeronautics last Saturday, fell behind with their 1-1 win-loss slate.

    Alfie Martinez and Gio Ciriacruz showed the way with 26 and 13 points, respectively, for the Chiefs in this tournament with Molten and Mikasa as official balls.

    The two got Arellano University’s offense going when they took charge during a 7-0 spurt at the start of the first period, allowing the Chiefs of coach Leo Isaac to move in front, 25-19.

    Salado saved the day for the Patriots when he lured Alvin Cruz into a foul, and then sank two gift shots with 13.2 seconds to go, giving DLSU-D a 92-88 edge.

    The Wildcats rallied from a 56-73 deficit, with Cesar Evangelista capping the 18-0 blitz with a 3-point play, 74-77, six minutes left.

    "This is the sixth time na nakaharap namin sila. And this is the first time na nanalo kami. Kanina nung first half, talagang tambak kami. Ang mga bata, kailangan i-push. Intimidated sila sa team na ito. Sabi ko, walang reason na hindi namin tatalunin ito dahil pinaghadaan namin ito," said Lightnings coach Ricky Alcantara.

    Igtos, who delivered only 11 points with Lito Casil, rose to the occasion with 2:32 left, as he buried a triple and then scored on a drive, putting the Lightnings ahead en route to their second win in four matches.
