    ACT Knights bounce back

    Games today (Cebu Coliseum)

    5:30 pm – USJ-R vs SIT
    7 pm – USC vs ACT

    THE Asian College of Technology Cyber Knights made up for their lackluster performance in their first outing, by beating the Salazar Institute of Technology Skyblazers, 90-84, in the Hotel Fortuna Cup 2, yesterday at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Crushed by the powerhouse Southwestern University Cobras, 97-83, in the main game last Tuesday, the Cyber Knights vented their ire on the Skyblazers on an incredible first half performance by Elmer Aparice to take a 46-36 lead in the second period. Aparice, a burly forward, tallied 19 points while wingman Joel Vistal had 13 before the halftime buzzer.

    The lead ballooned to 14 in the third canto as Aparice continued his dominating showing by scoring four quick points, for a 57-43 tally. However, foul trouble sent him to the bench which opened the door for the Skyblazers, who jumped to an, 11-0 run, cutting the lead to just three, 63-66, heading into the final stanza.

    SIT crept to within a basket, 81-83 with 2:26 remaining before the Cyber Knights finished the game with a 7-3 run, for their first win. Tempers ran afoul with 11.2 seconds left as SIT's Kenneth Tampus and Vistal got into a brief altercation, resulting in technical fouls on each player.

    Aparice wound up with 28 points for ACT while Vistal added 21 points.

    In last Tuesday's match, the SWU Cobras dominated the game from opening tip-off, and led by as much as 27 points, en route to the easy win. Clifford Maguate paced the Cobras with 23 points, while Alfred Belande and Eric Zanoria, had 19 and 16, respectively.

    BOX SCORES:

    ACT (90) Aparice 28, Vistal 21, Doy 10, Batiancila 9, Nunez 7, Dela Pena 6, Suico 5, Paraguya 4, Valencia 2

    SIT (84) Calma 18, Tampus 15, Jabadan13, Gacramo 9, Amarado 6, Rabaya 6, Gabica 6, violango 5, Ong 2, Kintanar 2, Aribal 2 /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

    USJ-R, SWU share lead in La Fortuna cagefest
    Friday, January 25, 2008

    The University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJR) Jaguars stymied a late rally by the Salazar College-Salazar* Institute of Technology (SC-SIT) and scored a 114-109 victory to share the lead with Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras in the ongoing La Fortuna Cup II basketball tournament at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Games today (Cebu Coliseum)

    * 5:30 pm SIT vs. USC
    * 7 pm SWU vs. USJR

    Luther Justiniani and Manny Gabas sank pressure packed freethrows late in the game to give USJ-R the cushion after SC-SIT came within 100-104 with a triple by Gilbert Violango, Jr., 46 seconds left in the game.

    Justiniani finished the game with 23 points for the Jaguars while Bobby Hatague contributed 20 points for the team’s second victory.

    Violango led the Skyblazers with 26 points after back-up point guard Jun Gabia needed three stitches to close a cut he suffered during the game. Benjie Calma also had a big night with 20 points.

    Meanwhile, the SWU Cobras also chalked up their second straight victory, the other day, with a close 90-84 victory over the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors.

    Peppery guard Eliud Poligrates, who sometimes drew the ire of Coach Dodie Miego for being too fancy, settled down in this game and scored 21 points for the Jaguars. His buddy, Eric Zanoria chipped in 19 points.

    Clifford Maguate and Alfred Belande, former USPF Panthers, were a great help in steadying the Cobras’ offense that started to waiver in the face of a furious fourth quarter rally by USC led by Niño who finished with 16 markers.

    The La Fortuna II caging is sponsored by Hotel Fortuna, La Fortuna Bakery, Pepsi Cola and Nature’s Spring.

    The scores:

    USJ-R (114)- Justiniani 23, Hatague 20, Ponce 18, Gudez 14, Gabas 8, Bibera 7, Pogoy 6, Malinao 4, Pateño 3

    SC-SIT (109)- Violango 26, Calma 21, J. Tampus 17, Jabadan 11, Aribal 11, Gabica 9, Ong 6, Kintanar 5, Amarado 4, JP Tampus 2 Halftime: 49-46 (GGM)

    Hatague, Justiniani tow USJ-R over SCSIT

    BOBBY Hatague scored 14 of his 20 and Luther Luke Justiniani went nine-of-nine from the free throw line to lead the University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars to a thrilling 114-109 victory over the undersized Salazar Colleges of Science and Institute of Technology Skyblazers in the opening game of the Hotel Fortuna Cup 2 Inter-Collegiate Basketball Championship at the Cebu Coliseum last night.

    Hatagaue and Justiniani had an awesome 22-of-23 free throw shooting clip that kept the Jaguars afloat when the hard-fighting Skyblazers rained triples and aggressive plays in the entire fourth quarter.

    The win earned the Jaguars a share of the leadership with the Southwestern University Cobras at two wins each.

    However, that record will end today as both teams are set to fight in the opening match at 5:30 p.m. today.

    The Jaguars have the edge in offensive firepower as they averaged 102 points per game against SWU’s 93.5. But the Cobras, however, proved to be tougher in defense as it limited its opponents to just 83.5 against USJ-R’s 95.5.

    In the main game, two winless squads—the Skyblazers and the University of San Carlos Warriors—will shoot for their first win in the tournament.

    At press time last night, USC was still playing Asian College of Technology Cyber Knights in the main match.

    The Jaguars had it tough against the Skyblazers as the smaller and shorter SCSIT players crushed the board hard and hustled on defense.

    Not even the string of turnovers that USJ-R forced in the final period could dampen the spirits of the Skyblazers as they continued to pound the taller and more exposed opponents with 3-point shots and fast break points.

    However, the story changed when SCSIT’s bruiser Jeff Tampus fouled out of the game at the 2:10 mark and the Jaguars diligently sank their free throws unlike the previous quarter when they went 8-of-14.

    The last time the Skyblazers gave the Jaguars a scare was in the final 46.1 seconds of the game after Gilber Violango Jr. sank a triple that put SCSIT behind 100-104. (RCM)

    The University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars and the Southwestern University Cobras vaulted into a tie for the lead in the standings after posting impressive wins against their respective opponents in the Hotel Fortuna Cup 2 at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Both stand atop the leaderboard with identical 2-0 slates after the Jaguars slipped past the Salazar Institute of Technology Skyblazers, 114-109, yesterday and the Cobras defeated the University of San Carlos Warriors, 90-84, in the main game Wednesday evening.

    In yesterday's match, the Jaguars had trouble getting rid of the Skyblazers, who surprisingly kept the game close behind the three-point bombs of Benjie Calma and Gilbert Violango.

    USJ-R turned to Bobby Hatague and Luther Justiniani as both fired 14 and 11 points, respectively, in the final canto to buoy the Jaguars.

    With SIT within just four points, 104-100, after Violango hit the last of his five three-pointers, the Jaguars displayed their ice-cold veins as they hit 10 straight free-throws to notch their second straight victory of the tournament.

    Justiniani top-scored for USJ-R with 23 markers while Hatague had 20 points.

    SWU, on the other hand, leaned on the breakout game of Camotes-native Eliud Poligrates, who scored 21 points while also getting significant numbers from Eric Zanoria who had 19 and Clifford Maguate, who added 14 markers.

    BOX SCORES:

    USJ-R (114) Justiniani 23, Hatague 20, Ponce 18, Gudez 14, Gabas 8, Bibera 7, Pogoy 6, Malinao 4, Pateno 3

    SIT (109) Violango 23, Calma 21, Tampus 17, Jabadan 11, Aribal 11, Ong 6, Kintanar 5, Amarado 4, Tampus 2. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

    USJ-R nears La Fortuna cagefest crown
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    Saturday, January 26, 2008

    The University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars took advantage of a fourth quarter collapse by the Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras to score a 95-85 comeback victory last night in the La Fortuna II Cup at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Games today: (Talisay gym)

    7 pm SIT vs. SWU
    8:30 pm USJR vs. ACT

    The win put the Jaguars on top of the standing with a 3-0 slate. Only a blow-out loss to the Asian College of Technology tonight will prevent the Jaguars from advancing to the one-game final.

    Southwestern University Cobras were in control of the ballgame and were ahead 73-65 entering the final period when the Jaguars made a run and crept to within 82-83. A booming triple by Lyndon Gudez made it 85-83 and the Jaguars took control from then on as the Cobras folded.

    The Cobras (2-1) will try to gain the other final seat when they play Salazar College-Salazar Institute of Technology (CS-SIT) in the first game of the twinbill tonight.

    Should USJ-R lose and SWU win, then a triple tie ensue between USJ-R, SWU and SC-SIT. The tie will be broken via the quotient system.

    Meanwhile, the ACT Cyber Knights beat the University of San Carlos 84-76, the other day, to keep their title hopes alive should they prevail against USJ-R.

    The scores:

    USJR (95) – Gudez 20, Villahermosa 17, Justiniani 10, Gabas 10, Pogoy 9, Ponce 8, Pateño 7, Bibera 6, Malinao 6, Hatague 2

    SWU (85) – Zanoria 24, Maguate 14, Diango 11, Belande 6, Gianchard 6, Litorja 6, Armecin 6, Poligrates 5, Jalandoni 4, Divinagracia 2 Halftime: 33-44

    A step closer
    Cebu Daily News
    First Posted 08:33:00 01/26/2008

    The University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars took one step closer to claiming a championship berth as they outclassed the Southwestern University Cobras, 95-85, in the battle of the undefeated teams in the Hotel Fortuna Cup 2 yesterday at the Cebu Coliseum.

    The Jaguars climbed back from a 12-point deficit in the second half to keep their record unblemished after three games.

    Seemingly frustrated by the erratic play of his main weapons, head coach Edito Salacot of USJ-R turned to his shock troopers to complete the comeback win.

    Led by the outside shooting of Jessmar Villahermosa and the frenetic defense of Edmar Pateno, the Jaguars managed to slice the lead down to just six, 65-71, heading into the payoff period.

    A 12-5 run finally put USJ-R in the driver’s seat at the 5:50 mark of the final stanza, 76-75, before the starters put the game away, scoring the game’s last nine points en route to the convincing victory. USJ-R improved to 3-0 (win-loss) while the Cobras fell to 2-1.

    Gudez led the way for the Jaguars with 20 points while Villahermosa chipped in 17.

    Justiniani and Manny Gabas each had 10 markers.

    The top two teams in the five-team tournament after the elimination round will advance to the winner-take-all championship game while the third and fourth placers will battle for the third place trophy.

    Meanwhile, the University of San Carlos Warriors continued their downwards spiral as they fell to the Asian College of Technology Cyber Knights, 82-74, in the main game Thursday evening.

    ACT now holds a 2-1 record while USC remains winless with a 0-3 record.

    BOX SCORES:

    USJ-R (95) Gudez 20, Villahermosa 17, Justiniani 10, Gabas 10, Pogoy 9, Ponce 8, Pateno 7, Malinao 6, Hatague 2
    SWU (85) Zanoria 24, Maguate 14, Django 11, Belande 6, Litorja 6, Poligrates 5, Armecin 4, Divinagracia 2. Correspondent Jonas Panerio

    Jaguars battle Cobras for La Fortuna Cup title

    THE University of San Jose-Recoletos Jaguars and the Southwestern University Cobras booked slots to the final round of the second Hotel Fortuna Cup after finishing first and second in the elimination round last Saturday at the Talisay City Sports Complex.

    Both teams punctuated their elimination round bids with emphatic victories over separate opponents in Talisay.

    The USJ-R squad kept a steady hold of the top spot after winning all of their matches, ending their elimination round with a 98-86 win over the Asian College of Technology Cyber Knights to pluck the first slot to the finals with a 4-0 win-loss record.

    The SWU Cobras, on the other hand, advanced to the title round after trouncing the hapless Salazar Institute of Technology Skyblazers, 102-77, to take the second place with a 3-1 ledger.

    The top two teams will battle it out in the do-or-die title round, which stakes P15,000 for the winning team.

    In the game, after holding on to precarious leads in the first period, the Jaguars initiated a blazing 15-0 run in the second period to enjoy a 22-point lead going into the final half. Nothing was stopping the Jaguars as they toyed with their opponents until the final buzzer sounded.

    Leaders

    Luther Justiniani led the Jaguars’ assault with 21 points, while Randy Pogoy and Lyndon Gudez were the other two players scoring in double digits with 16 and 15, respectively.

    In the other game between SWU and ACT, SWU’s Eluid Poligrates, who used to be the one frequently reprimanded for his theatrics on court that usually cost the team their victory, showed a different side and lifted the team to win.

    Poligrates scored 27 markers for the team. His presence became more apparent in the final stretch when he initiated the 23-5 run, which eventually sealed the deal for the Cobras.

    Eleazar Armecin added 16 points, while Richard Gianchand and Mariano Canonigo scattered 11 each.

    All however is not lost for ACT as it managed to arrange a ticket to the battle for third place against the University of San Carlos. The final round is set on Feb. 1 at a still to be determined venue.

    USJ-R (9—Justiniani 21, Pogoy 16, Gudez 15, Ponce 9, Gabas 8, Hatague 7, Malinao 6, Villahermosa 6, Pateno 4, Suliman 4, Duran 2. ACT (86)—Nunez 22, Vistal 18, Aparice 16, Paraguya 9, Batiancila 7, Valencia 5, Doy 5 (MCB)

    USC winds up third in La Fortuna hoop
    By Gabby G. Malagar
    Sunday, February 3, 2008

    Giovanni Padillo scored 12 of his team-high 18 points in the final quarter to buoy the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors to an 89-84 victory over the Asian College of Technology (ACT) Cyber Knights and clinch the third place honors of the 1st La Fortuna Cup basketball tournament yesterday at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Padillo’s heroics were better felt late in the fourth period when he stole the ball after a mad scramble for possession and completed a three-point play that gave the Warriors a three-point lead, 85-82, with only 20 ticks left before the final buzzer.

    Padillo also grabbed the last rebound of the game and then hit two free throws to settle the final tally.

    The Cyber Knights actually took a 71-65 edge on a three-point swing by JC Ver Paraguya, but they paid dearly for not being consistent with their free throws. Elmer Aparice muffed two crucial free throws* when the Warriors were already poised of wresting the driver’s seat.

    Interestingly, Aparice’s charities gave the Cyber Knights a shaky 78-75 lead,* but Padillo hit a game-tying triple, 78-all. The last time the Cyber Knights were on top was at 79-78 as Padillo handed back the lead to the Warriors for good, 80-79.

    Padillo was heavily backed up offensively by Niño Ramirez and Joven Sid Cortes with 15 points apiece.

    Paraguya paced the Cyber Knights with 22 points followed by Aparice and Vistal had 14 markers each.

    The scores

    USC (89) - Padillo 18, Ramirez 15, Cortes 15, Joven 6, Gallarde 6, Bautista 6, Bakker 5, Hermosa 5, Blanes 4, Codilla 4, Igao 2

    ACT (84) - Paraguya 22, Aparice 14, Vistal 14, Nuñez 13, Doy 7, Batiancila 7, Cadiz 4, Valencia 3, De la Peña 2

    Jaguar man

    VETERAN guard Luther Luke Justiniani played like a man possessed for the University of San Jose-Recoletos as he scattered 29 points including six triples to lead the Jaguars to a 102-83 mastery over the Southwestern University Cobras in the knockout championship game of the Hotel Fortuna Cup 2-Inter-Collegiate Basketball Championship held at the Cebu Coliseum last Saturday.

    The University of San Carlos Warriors, on the other hand, scored a come-from-behind 89-84 win over Asian College of Technology Cyber Knights to win the third place trophy.

    The Cobras were pretty much tough customers in the first half as they managed to stay close behind the Jaguars despite the early assault of Justiniani who came in as neutralizer for USJ-R in the second.

    After USJ-R had a slim 19-18 lead at the opening quarter, SWU took over the driver’s seat following a 7-3 blitz.

    However, Justiniani kept the Jaguars afloat as he scored 11 in the second while his scoring partner Lyndon Gudez also made his presence felt by nailing five markers. John Malinao also scored four to give USJ-R a 46-43 lead at the turn.

    The third quarter proved to be a trying moment for the Cobras as the Jaguars suddenly erupted with a 17-6 binge for a 63-49 lead midway to the third.

    From thereon, the Cobras crumbled into pieces as the Jaguars comfortably erected an 82-65 lead going to the fourth quarter.

    Despite the huge efforts from Eric Zanoria, Lloyd Poligrates and Chris Litorja, the Jaguars seemed to play flawless basketball and coach Dodie Miego seemed to give up all hopes in the final three minutes of the game.

    Aside from Justiniani, Malinao, Jessmar Villahermosa, Gudez, Bobby Hatague and Arman Ponce all scored in douuble digits, while Zanoria, Poligrates and Litorja combined for 37 points for the Cobras.

    Meanwhile, hardworking Giovanni Pardillo played the unlikely hero for the University of San Carlos Warriors in defeating the Asian College of Technology Cyber Knights.

    Pardillo scored 12 of USC’s 16 points in the final three minutes as the Warriors completed the surprise win over the Cyber Knights.

    USJ-R received the top prize P15,000, SWU got P10,000 and USC went home with P5,000 all courtesy from tournament organizer Lorenzo “Chao” Sy. (RCM)
