    Generals Conquer Stags

    (The Philippine Star)

    Updated August 19, 2012 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - San Beda leaned on the heroics of Jake Pascual and Baser Amer yesterday as it whitewashed Lyceum, 77-47, to snare the solo lead in the 88th NCAA basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.

    Pascual came through with 17 points and 16 rebounds while Amer had a career-high 16 assists he topped with nine points and five boards as the Lions zoomed to the top with an 8-2 card ahead of idle Jose Rizal (7-2), San Sebastian (7-3) and Perpetual Help (6-3).

    The Pirates fell to their eighth defeat against two wins.

    Earlier, undermanned Emilio Aguinaldo College drew the best from Igee King as it pulled off a shocking 77-67 victory over last year’s runner-up San Sebastian to put some life on its Final Four hopes.

    King, son of former PBA star Abe King, fired his league-best 17 points he spiked with five rebounds to help the Generals snare their third win against seven losses that kept them in the Final Four race.

    It was EAC’s first ever victory over the Stags since joining the oldest collegiate league three seasons ago.

    And the Generals did it in the absence of their coach Gerald Esplana and two players Remy Morada and Francis Munsayac, who all served one-game suspensions for their misconduct in EAC’s 76-61 win over the St. Benilde Blazers last Aug. 4.

    EAC also avenged its heartbreaking 93-94 defeat to San Sebastian in their first round encounter last July 30.

    “We lost to them (San Sebastian) by only a point in the first round but it showed us that we can compete against them,” said EAC assistant coach Andy de Guzman, who handled the coaching chores in Esplana’s absence.

    Russell Yaya provided the needed help with 18 points and six caroms while Cameroonian slotman Noube Happi did the rest with 17 points and 10 boards.

    EAC, which finished the first round of the elimination at the bottom of the standings with a 2-7 mark, led all throughout the game. leading by as many as 15 points in the first half.

    The Generals though felt threatened in the third quarter when they saw their lead cut down to just a hairline going into the final quarter.

    But EAC kept its head up while San Sebastian just couldn’t as reigning MVP Calvin Abueva was slapped a technical foul for a misconduct that turned out his fifth and last foul with still over six minutes remaining in the game. – Joey Villar

    That was all the Generals needed to hang on to the victory that ended their miseries while giving them hope for a berth in the Final Four.

    It also ended a milestone for Abueva, whose run of double-double performances of nine straight games came to a screeching halt after being held to just nine points and only eight rebounds.

    Curiously, Abueva, who is expected to go high in today’s PBA draft at the Robinson’s Place in Manila, is coming off a 21-point, 21-rebound and nine-assist effort in an 80-71 win over reigning champion San Beda last Monday.

    It was the Stags’ second loss in their last three games and third overall against seven triumphs that sent them outside the leaderboard.

    Earlier, San Beda stretched its amazing run to 10 with a mind-boggling 171-22 victory over Lyceum while San Sebastian slammed EAC, 96-50, to improve to 9-1 in the high school division.

    With the surprise "resignation" of Topex Robinson and Calvin Abueva possibly "following" his coach, I can't help but think of Aric del Rosario and Don Allado.

    Why Aric del Rosario? Topex says he resigned in order to concentrate on his assistant coaching job with Alaska. Coach Aric was an assistant for several years with Alaska and the UST 4-peat even coincided with Alaska's domination in the 90's (the last of the 4-peat was in 1996 which was the same year Alaska won a grandslam).

    Why Don Allado? The UAAP has a so-called Don Allado rule. The said rule states that once a current UAAP player applies for the PBA draft, he will automatically lose his eligibility. Incidentally, the rule was made after Allado was drafted in 1999 by guess what team, Alaska! Allado only played for Alaska in the 3rd conference or after leading DLSU to the UAAP title against Aric's UST team.
    "Every person must, in the exercise of his rights and in the performance of his duties, act with justice, give everyone his due, and observe honesty and good faith."

    Stags zap Chiefs, secure solo 2nd

    By Cedelf P. Tupas

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    12:26 am | Friday, August 31st, 2012

    Ian Sangalang asserted his might inside the paint, while Ronald Pascual broke out of his slump as San Sebastian dumped Arellano, 79-71, last night to vault into solo second in the 88th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    The 6-foot-6 Sangalang played the entire game and finished with 22 points and 14 boards to help the Stags survive the absence of the suspended Calvin Abueva.

    Pascual, who just recovered from flu, shot 18 points that went with nine rebounds.

    The Stags looked in control until early in the final period when the Chiefs went on a 10-0 blast to tie the game at 63.

    But the Stags figured out a way to solve the Chiefs’ fullcourt press and Pascual fired two triples sandwiched by short jumpers from Sangalang as the Stags, pulled away at 73-63.

    In the second game, St. Benilde arrested a four-game slide with an 87-73 trouncing of Lyceum.

    The scores:

    SAN SEBASTIAN 79—Sangalang 22, Pascual 18, Juico 9, Miranda 9, Maiquez 8, Dela Cruz 7, Gusi 6, Binuya 0, Balucanag 0, Antipuesto 0.

    ARELLANO 71—Hernandez 21, Forrester 13, Pinto 10, Zulueta 8, Caperal 8, Cadavis 4, Acidre 4, Salcedo 2, Bangga 1.

    Quarters: 24-25, 41-35, 63-57, 79-71

    Abueva heroics key: Stags rout vs Blazers

    By Joey Villar (The Philippine Star)

    Updated September 04, 2012 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - Back in harness, Calvin Abueva was back in his triple-double ways, powering San Sebastian to a 92-72 rout of St. Benilde yesterday in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at the Arena in San Juan.

    Abueva, back after a one-game suspension for a disqualification foul, tallied 17 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists that made up for his nine turnovers as the Stags stayed in solo second with a 10-3 (win-loss) record.

    In the nightcap, Jett Vidal matched the season-best 32-point output of SSC’s Ronald Pascual as Perpetual Help walloped Jose Rizal, 88-72, to tie its victim at third place with 8-3 slates.

    It was Abueva’s third triple-double effort in this final season for the Stags after a 15-point, 15-rebound, 11-assist effort in an 80-65 win over Perpetual last July 3 and a 16-point, 23-board and 10-assist performance in an 87-79 win over Lyceum last July 23.

    Abueva, the No. 2 overall pick by Alaska Milk in the recent PBA rookie draft, continued to lead the statistical points race for the MVP award but the fiery SSC gunner is no longer qualified to vie in any individual awards after his suspension.

    The Pampanga pride, however, took it all in stride.

    “My only focus right now is to help my team win a championship and my teammate, Ian Sangalang, win the MVP for me,” said Abueva.

    Sangalang, who leads the MVP race now following Abueva’s disqualification, exploded for 16 of his 20 points in the second half while Pascual matched his output, highlighted by four triples.

    It was also San Sebastian interim coach Allan Trinidad’s third straight victory since he took over from Topex Robinson.

    “I have to give it to the players for responding to the challenge,” said Trinidad.

    Carlo Lastimosa led all scorers with 22 points but the Blazers had no answer to SSC’s triumvirate’s (Abueva, Sangalang, Pascual) firepower.

    St. Benilde fell to 4-9.

    In juniors play, San Sebastian downed La Salle-Greenhills, 62-51, while Jose Rizal leaned on a 20-point, 25-rebound effort of Ginno Abrew as it turned back Perpetual Help, 74-70, to boost their Final Four bids.

    The scores:

    First Game (Srs)

    San Sebastian 92 – Sangalang 20, Pascual 20, Abueva 17, Gusi 11, Maiquez 10, Miranda 6, Juico 4, Antipuesto 2, dela Cruz 2, Rebullos 0, Binuya 0

    St. Benilde 72 – Lastimosa 22, Taha 13, Grey 9, Grey 6, Altamirano 6, Tan 6, Sinco 4, Bartolo 2, Deles 2, Dela Paz 2, Maconocido 0, Garcia 0, Romero 0, Carlos 0

    Quarterscores: 18-12; 43-28; 69-48 92-72

    Second Game (Srs)

    Perpetual Help 88 – Vidal 32, Thompson 13, Allen 12, Omorogbe 9, Alano 7, Babayemi 6, Elopre 5, Paulino 4, Jolangcob 0, Arboleda 0

    Jose Rizal 72 – Matute 16, Lopez 14, Carampil 12, Villarias 8, Camasura 6, Mabulac 4, Almario 4, Diapera 3, Dela Paz 3, Mendoza 2, Salaveria 0, Maconocido 0, Monserat 0

    Quarterscores: 23-18; 42-32; 65-52; 88-72

    Bombers rip Stags, stay in Final 4 race

    By Joey Villar

    (The Philippine Star)

    Updated September 28, 2012 12:00 AM

    Games tomorrow

    12 p.m. – EAC vs Letran (Jrs)

    2 p.m. – Perpetual vs San Beda (Jrs)

    4 p.m. – EAC vs Letran (Srs)

    6 p.m. – Perpetual vs San Beda (Srs)

    MANILA, Philippines - Jose Rizal fed on an explosive first half offensive and bucked repeated rallies by San Sebastian for an 82-74 victory that kept the Bombers Final Four hopes afloat in the 88th NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan City yesterday.

    Byron Villarias unleashed a game-high 28 points he spiked with a season-high tying eight triples as the Bombers snared their 10th win against seven losses to move just half-a-game behind joint third running Perpetual Help Altas and Letran Knights (10-6).

    Jose Rizal survived a second half explosion by Calvin Abueva, who struggled in the early going but finished strong and wound up with 26 points, 20 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

    But the Bombers, who nearly squandered a 20-point bulge at the turn, made the right plays at the right time on both ends down the stretch to preserve the victory while dealing Stags their fifth defeat againt 11 triumphs.

    “I’m just happy the players showed character in the end,” said Jose Rizal coach Vergel Meneses.

    JRU’s win likewise gave reigning champion San Beda the top seeding with a 14-2 card.

    Earlier, Fil-Canadian James Forrester fired 24 points as Arellano U trounced an undermanned Lyceum side, 58-49, in a non-bearing game.

    Forrester highlighted his scoring binge with five triples as the Chiefs took control in the second quarter and went on to dominate the Pirates to hike their record to 6-10.

    Although out of the Final Four race, Arellano U coach Koy Banal still told his players to play their best.

    “Whether it’s a championship game or just a practice match, I always tell players to give it all,” said Banal, who hopes to figure well in the semis race next year with an intact roster.

    The Pirates, who have played without Chris Cayabyab, Vence Laude, Mark Francisco and Floricel Guevarra for the third straight game due to academic deficiencies, fell to 3-14.

    In juniors’ play, San Sebastian fought off a furious challenge by Jose Rizal as it carved out a 79-70 victory to seize the solo lead and clinch the first twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four with a 15-1 record.

    Arellano U routed Lyceum, 125-36, in another non-bearing contest to improve to 7-9.

    Jose Rizal fell to 6-11 while Lyceum took its 16th straight loss.

    NCAA: Abueva downplays historic feat, focused on team goal

    By Mark Giongco

    6:18 pm | Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

    MANILA, Philippines—Calvin Abueva put the exclamation point in San Sebastian’s statement win over San Beda, viciously throwing down a two-handed dunk.

    And the rest was history: Abueva went on to become the first player ever in the country to lead a major basketball league in average points, rebounds and assists.

    “The Beast” as he is fondly called, unleashed 23 points, 16 rebounds and three assists to finish the elimination round of the NCAA Season 88 men’s basketball tournament with an unmatched average of 20.1 points, 16.4 rebounds and 6.5 assists.

    “Masaya ako (with what I’ve achieved) pero mas pinaghahandaan namin yung games namin,” downplayed Abueva, who needed to shoot 22 points coming into their game versus San Beda.

    And with 23 markers, the second overall pick of the Alaska Aces edged Letran’s Kevin Alas in the scoring department by just .1.

    Abueva also nipped the Red Lions playmaker Baser Amer with the same slim margin in assists while being the runaway best rebounder in the league with Emilio Aguinaldo College’s Happi Noube a far second norming 12.1 boards per game.

    “Ang focus ko kasi at ng team is yung championship,” added the double-double machine Abueva, who would’ve been this year’s clear-cut MVP before getting suspended.

    The Stags, who earned the no.2 spot and the twice-to-beat incentive after turning back the Red Lions anew, 69-55, will battle the surging Knights in the Final Four.

    Letran swept San Sebastian in the elimination round and it only gets tougher for the Stags with Ronald Pascual’s automatic suspension after getting tossed out early versus San Beda.

    Calisaan erupts for 36 as Baste enters Final Four again

    By Norman Lee Benjamin Riego on Oct 24, 2017 05:45 PM

    Michael Calisaan wanted nothing more than to keep playing in the NCAA 93 Men?s Basketball Tournament.

    And so, from start to finish on Tuesday at the MOA Arena, he towed San Sebastian College-Recoletos in their knockout bout.

    Scattering a career-best 36 points, Calisaan was the engine that drove the Golden Stags right through the very game Knights, 74-69, and all the way back into the Final Four.

    While the versatile forward was a beast all game long, it was team captain Ryan Costelo who came through when the engine was sputtering. "These two guys are my veterans. Siguro naman, nakita rin nang lahat yun sa laro," a more than satisfied head coach Egay Macaraya said.

    Costelo scored nine of his 13 points in the last four minutes as Baste turned a two-point deficit into a one-point lead with 1:50 remaining.

    After Bong Quinto tied the tally at 69-all, it was again the pint-sized point guard who made good on a short stab that proved to be the go-ahead layup.

    Following a defensive stop, Calisaan then put the finishing touches in their big-win with a booming triple for the five-point edge that would eventually end up as the margin of victory.

    Behind those two, San Sebastian punched a ticket into the Final Four as the four-seed. They will move on to face third-seed Jose Rizal University in another do-or-die game on Friday at the same venue

    This will be their first trip onto the next round since 2013. "Deserving ang mga bata especially sa nilalaro nila ngayon. We deserve to be in the Final Four and hopefully, ito na yung start ng medyo magandang character ng San Sebastian," Macaraya said.

    Calisaan also hauled in 10 rebounds while RK Ilagan and Renzo Navarro chipped in six points apiece.

    For Letran, Jeremiah Taladua topped the scoring column with 16 points while Bong Quinto posted a 15-point, 11-rebound double-double.

    The magic ran out for them, however, as they fell short this time around coming off must-win games over College of St. Benilde and Arellano University.

    Rey Nambatac, playing in his last game, had 11 points and two assists while plagued by foul trouble.


    SAN SEBASTIAN 74 ? Calisaan 36, Costelo 13, Ilagan 6, Navarro 6, Valdez 4, David 3, Gayosa 3, Bulanadi 2, Baetiong 1, Calma 0, Capobres 0, Mercado 0

    LETRAN 69 ? Taladua 16, Quinto 15, Calvo 11, Nambatac 11, Vacaro 8, Ambohot 3, Balanza 3, Balagasay 2, Mandreza 0, Gedaria 0

    QUARTER SCORES: 18-16, 32-30, 53-54, 74-69

    San Sebastian College welcomed back Coach Edgar Macaraya with a 107-90 spanking of University of Perpetual Help System-Dalta at the resumption of the 95th National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) at the FilOil Flying V Centre Friday. The fiery mentor served a one-game suspension but his return was enough to push the Stags to their fourth win in seven games and move back into contention for a Final Four berth. READ MORE
