    Gaisano South Cup

    5th Gaisano South Cup
    Ateneo ends title drought

    The Ateneo De Davao University Blue Knights didn’t let their title drought reached to a decade after beating Agro Industrial College Sailors, 62 – 59 in sudden-death Game 3 and win its first title in nine long years Sunday night at the close of the 5th Gaisano South Cup 2007 at a jam-packed GS Citimall Skygym.

    The Blue Knights displayed excellent composure down the stretch in trouncing the Sailors who had the chance to win the ballgame but crumpled en route to their heartbreaking defeat. Shooting guard Richard Madelo came out as the Blue Knight in shining armor, saving the day for the Cholo Elegino-mentored Jacinto-based quintet with his clutch baskets.

    Madelo, the finals MVP, drilled a triple and chase with a tear drop shot to score Ateneo’s last five points that in haste dramatically change the outcome of the winner-take-all match.

    Trailing by two, 57–59, Madelo who finished 16 points, hit a triple from an exceptional offensive play to take the lead, 60 – 59 then followed it up with a tear drop shot in the ensuing possession for the final count with 30 seconds left. The reed-thin Madelo who was held to only three points in the first three quarters carried the load for Ateneo after regular season MVP Miguel Solitaria and center Condrad Fernando fouled out with more than two minutes left.

    Solitaria, the regular season MVP and Fernando canned 11 points apiece.

    Ariel Fortuna had a chance to propel the game into overtime but missed a three-pointer that could have tied the count.

    Obed Batoy paced the Sailors with 22 points.

    The Blue Knights took the series opener with a 78 – 64 victory but the Sailors bounced back in Game 2 sailing to a 92 – 90 in overtime to force a rubber match.

    Genry Curso scored 12 of his total 14 points in the first period to give Agro a 16 – 11 lead after ten minutes of play.

    But Ateneo went into scoring rampage in the second quarter behind Paolo Sta. Ana, who had seven points, to take the lead 32 – 28 at the half.

    In the other winner-take-all match, Ateneo De Davao University clobbered Holy Child School of Davao, 75 - 60 to win the Cadet Category title.

    Paulo Dailisan topscored for Ateneo with 17 points while Jess Evangelio, the finals MVP, chipped in nine points.

    Holy Child fought hard but just couldn’t keep pace with Ateneo despite the excellent showing of regular season MVP Mario Emmanuel Bonleon, Daniel Sumalinog and Ralph Nayve.

    Bonleon had 17 points while Sumalinog and Nayve had 14 points each. (Rico Biliran/Mindanews)

    Gaisano South (GS) Cup, Home of the Rising Stars
    By Marianne L. Saberon-Abalayan
    www.sunstar.com.ph

    IT HAS embarked on a city-wide grassroots sports basketball program for the past 14 years but little has been known about how the Gaisano South (GS) Cup, formerly known as JS Gaisano Cup, specifically on how it came to be or how vast is its contributions to local sports.

    Get updates and join Dabawenyos Kadayawan 2008 celebration

    Not to mention the many prominent players who played on its court just like Purefoods Tender Juicy Giants' Peter June Simon who steered the University of Mindanao (UM) Wildcats to a series of championships and earning the coveted most valuable player (MVP) for three straight years.

    And who could ever forget former six-foot-nine Wildcats slotman Samigue Eman, who made quite a stir in the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) and now a mainstay of PBA's Magnolia Beverage Masters? He, too, was a GS Cup MVP along with UM teammate Eder John Saldua. Both cagers also had stints in the RP Team that saw action in international tournaments.

    Sunday Salvacion, a former Rizal Memorial Colleges (RMC) Bulldog, is also making a name in the pro league as a reliable member of the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings. He also played in Davao's longest-running cage loop as well as former Holy Cross of Davao College (HCDC) Crusader John Paul Escobal of San Beda College in the NCAA.

    Karla Palermo-Corcino, Ad and Promo Head of the Gaisano South Citimall, recalled, "It was sometime in 1994, that former owner Sir John Gaisano and Sir William "Butch" Ramirez planned the basketball program already named JS Gaisano Cup. It started out with a few teams being played at the Almendras Gym or at any gym that was available."

    Humble beginnings

    Corcino, in an interview with Sun.Star Davao at her office recently, said it was only in 1997 that Sir John put the league at its newly built SkyGym. The JS Gaisano Cup, which then featured college and high school divisions, at last found a place it can call home.

    On the same year, according to Corcino, the GS Cup Board of Commissioners was formed to help organize the league.

    "I think it was in the 3rd JS Cup in 1997 that we had our first motorcade from PTA to JS to usher the opening rites. It was like institutionalizing the league that's why we had the official logo and the rest of the staff and organizers had official shirts, too," she said.

    With its noble aim to provide the city with a true and viable grassroots sports development program on basketball, the JS Cup included the mini and cadet divisions in 2000 upon the encouragement of Basketball Association of the Philippines (BAP) regional director Regino "Boy" Cua.

    It has also introduced its own All-Star Game that attracted hundreds of spectators who filled the SkyGym to the rafters.

    The girls' event was included only later and in 1999, the search for Miss JS Cup made its debut.

    Corcino added: "In 2002, there was a change of management. Sir John continued the JS Cup in Gaisano Tagum while our new chairman Benito Gaisano, also wanted to keep the program. So the Gaisano South (GS) Cup was born. We're now on our eighth year. It's just the name of the league that changed but its noble objectives and good intentions for the city's youth are the same."

    This year's season of the region's premier youth cagefest also made another milestone with visitors Holy Trinity College of General Santos City and Panabo State College of Davao del Norte.

    "This is the biggest season ever with a total of 66 teams entered in the meet. We are very happy with this development. This just proves that the league is making a good impact on our youth and schools in the region," she said.

    She said mounting up one season of the league costs the management some P700,000 or more.

    She went on saying: "There was even a time, we hit P1 million but the budget was sliced in later seasons. It really costs so much considering that this is not a sales-generating event. The P7 or P10 ticket sales every game could not even cover half of the operating expenses. We are really happy that management decided to give its all-out support despite the budgetary requirements. It's a good feeling that we get to help these kids hone their skills and start a career path for them in basketball one way or the other."

    Meanwhile, Joseph Encabo, chief-of-staff of Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) chairman Ramirez, said: "GS Cup for me is a sporting event that promotes a true talent identification program - from a raw talent to elite. This has been proven after it has produced players now playing in PBA and PBL."

    Veteran sports scribe Jon Develos, who once served as member of the GS Cup board, recalled, "I think it was Joshua Ramirez of Ateneo who was named the first MVP of the league."

    The GS Cup, according to tournament director Rico Jhone Biliran, has also become BAP-SBP's basis for Davao City's representation in national inter-school tournaments. A true indication that the league is indeed the true home of rising basketball stars.

    GAISANO SOUTH CUP
    SPPCI survives
    against Ateneo 53-51

    www.dailymirror.ph

    The Southern Philippines Polytechnic College survived a fiery Ateneo De Davao University last minute surge to pull away with a 53 – 51 victory last Sunday evening in the ongoing 6th Gaisano South Cup Junior Division 1 at the GS Skygym.

    The Ateneans waxed hot in the pay off period, wiping out SPPCI's double digit lead midway of the fourth quarter, but just fell short to absorb their first setback.

    With the score at 53 – 51 with eight seconds left, Jannus Gio Bulseco had the chance to win the game for Ateneo which was trailing all throughout. Bulseco who had 10 points found himself open behind the arc following a broken play but the prolific for-ward undesirably missed the shot before the final buzzer.

    Forward Ronald Bangoy had a double-double performance for SPPCI drilling in 13 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. Jess Linus Evangelio paced Ateneo with 15 points.

    Unlike the junior's team, Ateneo de Davao University-Team A streaked past Stella Maris Academy, 75–20 in the Girl's division match.

    Reigning Most Valuable Player Trisha Anne Piatos lived up to her star billing as she scored 14 points and dished out 4 assists to open Ateneo's title retention bid on a bright note.

    Piatos, a product of the Davao Eagles Summer Cage Clinic back in the day led Ateneo to the championship last year. She drilled 9 of her total points in the opening canto where Ateneo established a commanding 25 point advantage, 29–4 after only ten minutes of play.

    Krystine Cloe Timtim and Tara Araneta chipped in 14 and 8 points respectively for the Juan Carlo Salvador mentored Ateneo girl's Team A.

    In the other matches, defending junior's division 2 champs St. Therese College of Science and Technology demolished Ford Academy of the Arts, 102–61.

    In the Mini division, University of Immaculate Conception defeated Ateneo de Davao University, 67–58 while Holy Child School of Davao trounced Magallanes Elementary School, 81–49.
