    Bombers shatter Archers, grab lead

    MANILA, Philippines -- The Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers overhauled a four-point deficit in the final 1:21 of the game to turn back the UAAP heavyweights De La Salle University Green Archers, 82-79, Sunday and grab the solo lead in the Filoil-Flying V Preseason Invitational Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

    With four wins in the 13-team field, JRU likewise secured a slot in the quarterfinal round which begins June 4.

    The Archers controlled the game most of the way, holding a 79-75 spread after team captain Tyrone Tang connected on a triple with 1:21 left.

    But Heavy Bomber John Wilson converted three free throws while Jason Nocom scored on a breakaway layup off a steal from Tang, giving the Mandaluyong-based squad its first taste of the lead, 80-79, only 21.8 seconds to play.

    DLSU coach Franz Pumaren designed a final play for JV Casio but a triple team forced the veteran Archer to miss a 10-foot heave.

    Wilson recovered the loose ball and sank a layup for the final score.

    DLSU, the six-time UAAP men’s champion team which was suspended from the 2006 season due to ineligibility violations, dropped to 2-1.

    Playmaker Mark Cagoco paced JRU with a game-high 23 markers, Wilson added 15 and Marvin Hayes contributed 11.

    La Salle was led by Tang with 16 points while Rejan Lee and Cholo Villanueva chipped in 12 markers each.

    The Scores:
    JRU 82 -- Cagoco 23, Wilson 15, Hayes 11, Sena 9, Se 8, Nocom 6, Pradas 5, Bungahis 3, Cunanan 2, Kabigting 0.
    LA SALLE 79 -- Tang 16, Lee 12, Villanueva 12, Co 7, Casio 6, Atkins 5, Ilad 5, Malabes 4, Mangahas 4, Cua 2, Walsham 0, Batricevic 0, Ferdinand 0.
    Quarters: 18-21; 39-40; 59-65; 82-79. Changing The Face of The Game!

    What is it with JRU and Lasalle in the hardcore tournaments?

    Lasalle plastered JRU in the Finals of the Homegrown Cup several months back. Now JRU has gotten back at Lasalle in the ongoing Fil-Oil Preseason.

    Looks like Cagoco, Wilson, Sena, Nocom and Hayes have actually gotten better collectively in the absence of erstwhile King Bomber Floyd Dedicatoria. The sheer speed, athletic ability, toughness and overall court smarts of these guys has developed almost exponentially over the last two months. Kudos to Coach Ariel Vanguardia because it seems he has found just the right buttons to push for these Bombers. Beating the Green Archers is no easy trick (Ateneo and the rest of the UAAP know this only too well) and this kind of a masterful show of composure and determination by the Heavy Bombers is nothing to scoff at. I daresay the rest of the NCAA better watch out in Season 83.

    Filoil-Flying V Pre-Season Invitational Cup

    JRU aims for perfect slate

    JOSE RIZAL University will try to keep its unblemished record intact when its tackles Letran today in the Filoil-Flying V Pre-Season Invitational Cup at The Arena in San Juan City.

    The Heavy Bombers of JRU (4-0) are on top of standings in Group A and are already assured of a quarterfinal slot while Letran (2-3) are aiming to improve their record in Group B where they trail co-leaders De La Salle University and National University with identical 2-1 cards.

    Far Eastern University (2-0) is aiming to fortify its drive for a quarterfinal slot in Group A when it goes up against the De La Salle University at 2 p.m.

    Despite the win-loss record, the FEU Tamaraws are not yet assured in the tournament second phase and will be hard-pressed to win against La Salle, which absorbed its first loss in three games at the hands of the Jose Rizal University last Sunday.

    La Salle has a 2-1 card and is tied with National University atop in Group B. However, the Green Archers and Bulldogs will have to secure victories today to get ahead of the pack.

    Mapua (1-2) battles winless University of the Philippines (0-2) in the opening game at 12 noon while University of Perpetual Help System Dalta (1-1) faces NU (2-1) at 4 p.m. The Bulldogs are riding crest of an 18-point massacre of Ateneo last week.

    The quarterfinals (June 4), semifinals (June 11) and finals (June 13) will be broadcast live over Basketball TV of Solar Sports. Afficonados who wish to see live action at the ARENA may get their tickets from TicketNet or at the Arena gate.

    DLSU, Mapua beat foes in Filoil tourney

    DE LA Salle University (DLSU) used a fourth quarter run to upend Far Eastern University, 82-76, to complete a come-from-behind win and increased their chances for a quarterfinal slot in the Filoil-Flying V Preseason Invitational Cup played at The Arena in San Juan City.

    Trailing 64-58 after the third quarter, La Salle coach turned to veterans Tyrone Tang and Rico Maierhoffer who combined for 17 of the Green Archers’ 24-point blast to book their third win in four games in Group B.

    Tang, La Salle’s team captain, finished with 14 points, Marko Batricevic made 12 and Maierhoffer and JV Casio contributed 11 points each.

    FEU, limited to 12 markers in the pay-off period for their first loss in three games for a 2-1 mark in Group A, was paced by the 18 of Ricardo Cawaling while MVP statistical leader Marnel Baracael struggled all afternoon for a measly eight points.

    Mapua defeated University of the Philippines, 83-76, in the other match to improve to second in the standings with a 2-2 win-loss record, just a game behind La Salle.

    The Cardinals, who stared at a 40-44 deficit halftime, clamped their defense in the third quarter to grab a two-point lead at 64-62. Sean Co had eight and Kerby dela Peña added seven in that stretch.

    Co led the way for Mapua with 20 markers and was ably backed up by Dela Peña who had 14. Maroons’ Veejay Serios and Woody Co canned 13 points apiece for UP.

    Bulldogs face Warriors; UP takes on UST

    Last updated 06:13am (Mla time) 05/20/2007

    GAMES TODAY (The Arena)
    2 p.m.—Perpetual vs Letran
    4 p.m.—NU vs UE
    6 p.m.—UP vs UST

    MANILA, Philippines—The race for quarterfinal berths in the FilOil-Flying V Pre-season Invitational Cup heats up at The Arena in San Juan, with all six protagonists today still in the thick of the fight.

    National University, which shares the Group B leadership with idle De La Salle at 3-1, has the inside track as a win over University of the East in their 4 p.m. match would assure the Bulldogs of at least a tie for one of four quarterfinal seats in their group.

    The UE Warriors, holding a 2-0 mark, are pinning their hopes on veterans Marcy Arellano, James Martinez and Elmer Espiritu to carry them past the Bulldogs.

    NU’s victims include defending NCAA champion San Beda College, which it beat, 84-76, on May 2, and three-time UAAP winner Ateneo de Manila, 81-63, on May 11.

    The top four teams from each group would advance to the next stage. Only Jose Rizal University, Group A topnotcher at 5-0, is assured of advancing to the next round.

    Letran, reeling from back-to-back losses that include a 78-76 defeat to JRU Friday night, faces Perpetual Help at 2 p.m.

    The main game pits defending UAAP champion University of Santo Tomas against winless University of the Philippines at 6 p.m. Romina S. Austria Changing The Face of The Game!

    Knights survive Altas; Warriors pull off No.3

    Last updated 03:27am (Mla time) 05/21/2007

    MANILA, Philippines -- Letran College gained a playoff for a Group B quarterfinal berth while University of the East remained unbeaten in Group A Sunday in the Filoil-Flying V Preseason Invitational Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

    After a dismal start that saw both Letran and University of Perpetual Help scoring just nine points apiece, coach Louie Alas’ Knights found their range in the second half to score a 71-69 decision.

    Letran improved to 3-4 and gained a playoff for a quarterfinal seat.

    Perpetual tasted its second straight loss for 1-3 and must sweep its last two matches to stay alive.

    In the other featured match, the UE Warriors upended the National University Bulldogs, 76-72, to remain unscathed in three starts in Group B.

    The Bulldogs dropped to 3-2.

    The Knights picked up the pace in the third with swingman RJ Jazul scattering 11 points, helping Letran cut down the lead to four, 53-49, with just a full quarter remaining.

    Jazul topscored for Letran with 18 markers and Miko Quinday made 11.

    Raffy Inyon led Perpetual Help with a game-high 22 points while Nat Salanga contributed 11. Inquirer Sports Staff Changing The Face of The Game!

    La Salle, UE gain Filoil tilt q’finals

    By Romina Austria
    Last updated 03:58am (Mla time) 05/24/2007

    MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University and University of the East crushed separate foes Wednesday to barge into the quarterfinals of the Filoil-Flying V Preseason Invitational Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

    La Salle, with all but one of 14 players fielded in by coach Franz Pumaren contributing, overpowered University of the Philippines, 72-56, to become the first quarterfinalist in Group B.

    UE joined Jose Rizal University in the Group A quarterfinals with a 98-78 rout of University of Santo Tomas in the second game.

    The Green Archers, who were led by slotman Rico Maierhoffer’s 12 points and 10 rebounds, improved to 4-1.

    The UP Maroons slumped to a 1-4 slate but are still in contention for the remaining two quarterfinals slots in Group A.

    The Warriors outclassed the Tigers in the other match, leading by as many as 22 points, 57-35, at the start of the second half when Raffy Reyes sank a triple.

    UE is unbeaten in four games, a game behind idle Group A leader JRU, while UST, despite relegation to the Group B cellar at 1-4, still has a slim chance of advancing to the next phase. Changing The Face of The Game!

    Altas, Tams, Cardinals eye quarterfinals

    Last updated 00:16am (Mla time) 05/27/2007

    MANILA, Philippines—Mapua sets its sights on a quarterfinal berth while the chances of Far Eastern University and Perpetual Help hinge on each other’s performance as the Filoil-Flying V Pre-Season Invitational Cup enters the penultimate playing day of the elimination round today at The Arena in San Juan.

    A win by the Cardinals over the University of the East Warriors in the 6 p.m. main game will send them to the next round along with fellow Group B squads La Salle and National University.

    However, a Mapua loss would allow Letran to tie at 3-4 while also giving Philippine Christian University a slim chance to equal their marks with a victory against San Beda College on June 1.

    The quotient system will be used in case of ties.

    FEU eyes a win against University of Santo Tomas at 2 p.m. and will hope for a La Salle victory over Perpetual Help in the 4 p.m. match for a trouble-free ride to the quarterfinals.

    San Beda would also qualify outright as neither Perpetual nor University of the Philippines would be able to catch the Red Lions’ 3-2 slate.

    But if FEU loses and Perpetual wins, the Altas get the quarterfinal seat.

    Should both FEU and Perpetual win or lose, the quotient system will be applied as they would emerge with 2-4 cards.

    The Green Archers will try to improve on their 4-1 card to strengthen their hold on the top spot in Group B.

    UE is already in the Group A quarterfinals while UST is still fighting for a slot in Group B.

    Jose Rizal University has also qualified to the Group A quarterfinals.

    The quarterfinal round which begins on June 4 would pit the No. 1 team against the No. 4 while the No. 2 and No. 3 squads collide.

    The group winners meet in the June 11 semifinal while the championship game is set on June 13. Changing The Face of The Game!
