If I'm not mistaken, the core of the Mapua team including Coach Joel was "borrowed" for a number of inter-company tournaments.* Even met Coach Joel once. Kevin and I would bump into each other a number of times over the years and would still exhange pleasantries.

    I got to play with Boogie in a Bicolano inter-association tournament held in San Beda.* Everybody who didn't knew him would just reder to or call him "Bobby Parks" because of the perceived physical resemblance.

    In the mid-90's I got to play with and became good friends with ex-Cardinals John Bernales, Eric Abdullah and George Baltazar when we were playing for the Philippine Navy Basketball Team. They were all brought to the Navy by another one time Cardinal, Peter Tioseco.* Eric is now working in a call center while John and George are with regular service of the Philippine Navy (George is a Navy Leutenant, Army Captain equivalent, the last time I spoke to him).

    Great to read your stories.* Hope to bump into you more in the threads.




    Hi Blue bruiser. How come we did not meet there in Philippine Navy? I was ahead of John by 1year and same batch with George. Anyway maybe those were the days when I am pre occupied with my other course in V Luna Hospital for MAC course. So much stories you have there with the Ex cards. You must be good in playing ahrd ball during your peak days. I hope we bump into each other someday. Maybe if i visit Manila one of these days. i am based now in Davao and have my own small business here. Check out my website maybe you have something in mind that we can do business with. www.redwoodlogistics.net , good memories from your college days huh. bye for now.

    Medyo may kulang na info yung post ko Chester.

    I actuall played for only two years and officially got out before you came in. I was with the batch that included Donking Sasuman and Django Rivera (1995). The Navy was just a temporary thing. A way for me to scratch my itch to play competitive ball while doing other things with my life. And it got complicated. Didn't really sign up to be a soldier boy. Just to play some hoops. Plus real life got int he way as I was already a senior in law school at the Ateneo when I got my enlistment and passed the bar before the end of my term. I was invited to join the NJAG and seriously considered it as my Dad was a former Navy officer but I decided to pursue a different career path.

    We probably bumped into each other a couple of times (and even probably properly introduced) as I would still pop in once in a while during the practices to get a good run. This was around 1998-99 already. I played a bit more pick-up ames later between 2001-2004 (and hanged around with the boys more of course) just to get into shape and the Navy team was always a good place to get a great game going. I was running my own business then and had more time to burn. On my level of play, I just had enough. Nothing like you guys of course.

    Lots of great memories with the Mapua boys and have made a lot of real good friends.

    I'll tell Pet that I bumped into you in the threads. We still meet up on a regular basis.

    Regards.

    ^Yup. I sparred and trained with the Philppine Navy Boxing Team. Regular sparmates ko yung malalaki nila.* Middleweight pataas. Karamihan dun nasa TEAM PHILIPPINES pa.* Sumasabay din ako minsan sa TEAM PHILIPPINES pag nasa Rizal sila.* Been boxing since 2001.* Baka nga nakita mo na akong nagtrain with the Navy boxing team.* Mas regular ako sa boxing. Trained everyday. Minsan nga twice a day pa.

    I'm not hard to miss also. I'm 6'2", 230 lbs. I'm almost the same body type as John. Big target. ;D

    Blackwater five takes it

    By Cedelf P. Tupas

    9:56 pm | Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

    Playing with a lot of tenacity in the second half, Blackwater Sports ended the reign of NLEX in the PBA D-League with a pulsating 80-74 victory yesterday, completing a sweep by the Elite of the Foundation Cup finals at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

    Robby Celiz and Justin Chua showed up their more touted rivals by starring in a torrid second-half assault that boosted the Elite from 18 points down in the third period and eventually dethroned the Road Warriors, who ruled the first four conferences with ease.

    Undaunted by the Road Warriors’ winning tradition, the Elite, owned by businessman Dioceldo Dy, proved tougher when it mattered in Games 1 and 2.

    “It wasn’t easy but all we had to do was believe in the players and in the system, and instill discipline on offense and defense” said Blackwater coach Leo Isaac.

    “Down (14 points) at halftime, we knew we can’t win if we lose our composure, so we took it possession by possession and took good shots.”

    More importantly, Blackwater, playing with a thin rotation, was undaunted by NLEX’s star-studded lineup.

    Celiz, a seldom-used guard playing out of National U, fired 20 points, including 11 in the third quarter that sparked the Elite’s comeback from 40-58 down.

    Motivated by the thought of playing against his more heralded collegiate teammates in Greg Slaughter and Nico Salva, former Ateneo center Chua delivered 17 points and six boards.

    Allan Mangahas dished out a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

    “We feel sorry for him not winning the MVP award, but he proved that he is the team’s MVP,” Isaac said of the former Mapua court general.


    The Road Warriors leaned on Slaughter to take a 52-38 lead at halftime. They padded it to 18 in the third, before back-to-back triples by Celiz set off the fightback.

    Baser Amer tied the game for NLEX at 72 with 2:17 left, but Mangahas buried a runner in the lane and Celiz followed up a Chua miss with 41.2 ticks to go.

    The scores:

    BLACKWATER 80—Celiz 20, Chua 17, Mangahas 13, Ferrer 12, Llagas 11, Ciriacruz 7, Bagatsing 0, Austria 0.

    NLEX 74—Salva 14, Lanete 12, Slaughter 11, Long 9, Alas 8, Garcia 7, J. Pascual 6, Amer 5, Villarias 2, Ganuelas 0, R. Pascual 0, Camson 0.

    Quarters: 21-22, 38-52, 60-62, 80-74

    ^^^ Allan Mangahas was the true difference-maker in this series. He totally outplayed the more heralded Baser Amer and RR Garcia.
