    ACSAT stays alive, beats La Salle-Dasmarinas; Arellano U still on top

    The Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings survived a furious end-game rally to beat the La Salle Dasmarinas Patriots 89-80 in the 14th Petron NCRAA men's basketball tournament held at the Arellano Gym in Legarda.

    ACSAT gunner Nico Pupos scored 7 straight points to break a 68-all tie and give the Lightnings the lead for good midway thru the 4th quarter. The Patriots who trailied by as much as 14 points took their largest lead in the game at 68-64 on a putback by slotman Rovie Ryd Baguio. Baskets by ACSAT's Welland Munoz and Rey Burgos knotted the score setting up the heroics of Pupos.

    A double technical foul called on the Patriots Jun Salado and ACSAT's Harvey Igtos somewhat broke the momentum for La Salle. The referees caught both players exchanging elbows during a play in La Salle's front court. This proved costly for La Salle since this was Salado's 5th foul which sent him to the bench.

    With the win, the Lightnings remained in the hunt for a semifinals seat with a 6-3 win-loss card. They have to win their last assignment against the dangerous PATTS Sea Horses on Saturday to have at least a tie for the 4th slot.

    In the first game, the Arellano University Chiefs remained in first place with a masterful 88-68 trashing of UDM. Big men Gio Ciria Cruz and Orlando Daroya kept UDM at bay with both their offense and defense together with the hot shooting of swingman Alfie Martinez.

    As of this writing, the SFAC Doves and the PUP Maroons are still playing. Both teams are in contention of landing a final four slot as the tournament winds down to its last few games.

    Doves boost Final 4 bid

    Philippine Star

    Raymund Ilagan chipped in a game-high 23 points, including one of two charities in the endgame to power the defending champion St. Francis Doves to an 82-79 beating of the Polytechnic Univeristy of the Philippines Maroons yesterday in the 14th Petron-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament at the Arellano Legarda gym.

    The Doves' seventh triumph in nine matches strengthened their claim to the first Final Four seat as they moved to the top of the standings while putting the Maroons' bid in jeopardy.

    Last year's runner up Arellano University and the Asian College of Science and Technology stayed in the hunt for the second twice-to-beat privilege as they turned back separate foes.

    The Arellano Chiefs got 26 points from Gio Ciriacruz as they whipped Unibersidad de Manila, 88-68, and moved to second spot with their 6-1 win loss slate.

    Alfie Martinez hit 16 points for the Chiefs, and made 11 points in the first period as Arellano U quickly dictated the pace with a 26-11 spread.

    PATTS College of Aeronautics stepped on the gas early and stunned the Arellano University Chiefs, 88-71, in the 14th Petron National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament.

    Impressive shooting form JB Ferreria in the first period enabled the PATTS Sea Horses to remain in contention for a Final Four slot after they registered their fifth win in seven games at the Emilo Aguinaldo College Sports Center.

    This enabled the Sea Horses to catch up with the Emilio Aguinaldo Generals, who are in fourth position after their 103-81 beating of the Olivarez College Sea Lions.

    Earlier, Jesus Patambang banged in 20 points for La Salle-Dasmarinas as it downed Unibersidad de Manila,93-59, to hike its record at fifth spot to 5-3.

    In the women's side, Josephine Alday led with 20 points as La Salle-Dasmarinas downed Emilio Aguinaldo College, 75-62 and bagged the first finals slot in the women's division.

    The Chiefs' loss, their second as against six triumphs, dropped them to second behind the St. Francis Doves (7-2)

    Ferreria made 16 points, and unloaded 11 of it in the first quarter, enabling PATTS to take charge with a 20-8 spread.

    The Sea Lions forced numerous turnovers in the second period, and with James Abugan making 11 of 17 points, they went on to post a 51-31 halftime advantage.

    RJ Cui showed the way for the Sea Lions with 19 points and is expected to again lead the team when it battles the Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings in a crucial 1:30pm clash today at the Arellano-Legarda gym.

    The game will decide if PATTS can keep their hopes alive of making it to the semis.

    EAC, SFAC, PATTS prevail. PUP stays alive.

    4 teams stayed in contention for a semifinals slot while two other teams virtually bowed out of contention in the 14th Petron NCRAA men's basketball tournament held at the Arellano Legarda gym. The EAC Generals had no problems in disposing of the Olivarez College Sea Lions to improve their record to 6-2.

    In the third game, the St. Francis of Assisi Doves edged the Arellano University Chiefs 56-55. Doves big man Raymund Ilagan connected on a short jumper just below the 15 foot line for the go-ahead basket with 6 seconds left. Arellano had a chance to win the game but the last second attempt by Gio Ciria Cruz was long and bounced out the back rim. The Doves improved to 8-2 to assure themselves of at least a tie for the 2nd semis spot while the Chiefs dropped to 6-3 with their second straight loss.

    Host school the Asian College of Science and Technology Lightnings virtually bowed out of contention with a loss to the PATTS Sea Horses in a hotly contested game. The Sea Horses where virtually ahead throughout the game but the pesky Lightnings led by big men Welland Munoz and Rey Burgos kept the game close. There were instances that fights between the players of the opposing schools almost broke out but cooler heads prevailed. The Sea Horses improved to 6-2 while the Lightnings closed out the single round elimination with a 6-4 mark.

    In the last game of the day, the PUP Maroons won a fight marred game against the De La Salle Dasmarinas Patriots. A fight broke out with time down to 19 seconds PUP ahead 74-58. The Patriots conceded the game and requested the officials to run out the clock to avoid any more untoward instances. During the first half, the two guards of both schools also figured in an inbound scuffle which almost led to a bench clearing incident. The Maroons stayed alive with a 5-3 mark while the Patriots fell to 5-4.

    Chiefs stay in hunt for Final 4 seat

    Philippine Star

    Tylon Dar Juan hit a triple and Gio Ciria Cruz scored two charities at endgame as the Arellano University Chiefs stunned the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals, 82-78, yesterday in the 14th Petron-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) men's basketball tournament at the EAC Sports Complex.

    The victory thus enabled the Chiefs to stay in the hunt for one of three remaining Final Four seminfinal slots with their 7-3 win-loss record.

    Orlando Daroya topscored for the Chiefs with 22 points, including the go ahead basket off Ciria Cruz's pass in the 1:53 of the contest.

    The Generals who blew a five-point lead in the last five minutes, forced the game's last deadlock at 75-all when Ronjay Buenafe sank two free thorws with 1:34 left.

    Dar Juan's triple with 30 ticks to go shattered the tie, while Ciria Cruz's two free throws in the ensuing play enable the Chiefs to stay in the lead.

    "Defense on their shooters did it. And so did our heads up plays in the crucial minute," said Chiefs coach Leo Isaac, whose wards tied the Generals in fourth spot.

    Buenafe fired a career high 39 points and a league record eight triples for the Generals.

    Doves, Generals eye championship berths

    The defending champion St. Francis Doves are seeking a chance to preserve their championship tradition and the Emilio Aguinaldo Generals want to have a date with destiny.

    The Arellano University Chiefs will try to get even against the Asian College Science and Technology Lightnings, who are out looking for respect.

    All four squads will try to get the wishes of their hearts when the rubber match of the 14th Petron-National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) menís basketball semifinals gets going today at the EAC Sports Center.

    The Generals (1-0) have the upperhand when they clash with the Doves at their own homecourt at 9 a.m. while the Lightnings (1-0) have the psychological edge in their 10:30 a.m. clash with the Chiefs later at 10:30 a.m.

    EAC will be shooting for their third straight collegiate title, counting the University Games and the Universities and Colleges Athletic Association.

    The Nomar Isla-coached Generals and the Ricky Alcantara-mentored Lightnings gained the momentum when they beat their heavily favored foes at the start of their Final Four semifinals at the jampacked Arellano-Legarda gym last Tuesday.

    Gester Ebuen banged in 14 points and delivered the baskets which carried the Generals to a 68-64 beating of the Doves, who had a twice-to-beat privilege with the Chiefs.

    Welland Munoz hit 27 points, including two baskets which spelled the difference in the last three minutes and powered the Lightnings to a 75-67 beating of the Arellano Chiefs.

    Isla said that the Generals will need to contain the Dovesí shooters if they want entry into the championship round.

    They are looking for a repeat of the good season they had in 2005, when they won three collegiate titles.

    Dovesí coach Gabby Velasco is confident that his boys will have the maturity to handle the pressure of trying to make it to the finals again.

    The Lightnings will try to come up with their best finish since joining the league only last year. For the Chiefs, it will be their chance to prove that they still have the fighting form which enabled them to challenge the Doves for the title last year. Changing The Face of The Game!

    Arellano bags NCRAA crown

    THE ARELLANO University Chiefs banked on the steady free-throw shooting of Gio Ciriacruz in the endgame to claim their first-ever title in the 14th Petron-NCRAA basketball tournament yesterday.

    Ciriacruz handed it to the Chiefs after scoring two free throws off Alain Musniís foul with 3.8 seconds to go, giving Arellano a 67-64 triumph over the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

    The six-foot Ciriacruz made only six points and got a chance to win it for the Chiefs when Musni got in his way after receiving an inbound from Bonlex Magcawas.

    His effort enabled the Chiefsí to improve on their runner-up finish after losing in the finals to the St. Francis Doves last year.

    "We wanted the game na medyo dragging. Kung may takbuhan, tatakbo tayo. Gusto namin na mababa ang score, magkalapit ang score dito. In this instance, makakatsamba kami," said Chiefs coach Leo Isaac.

    Earlier, Adriel de Leon delivered 22 points, while Earl Limboy had 21 in powering the Arellano Baby Chiefs to the junior crown with a 99-74 beating of Olivarez High School.

    The Chiefs finished the best-of-three title series with a 2-1 win-loss record after bowing to the Generals, 77-65, in Game 2.

    It was an emotional win for the Chiefs, whose supporters and that of the Generals had to be restrained from pelting each other with debris and water bottles.

    Magcawas showed the way for the Chiefs with 18 points, including two charities with 50.3 ticks to go off Ronjay Buenafeís foul, 65-62.

    Tylon Darjuan, who was adjudged the league MVP, tallied only nine behind Nathaniel Estiloís 12. Changing The Face of The Game!
