    Basketball Circa 1950s

    It is said that UCAA is on its 7th.Season, but here is a classical collegiate hoops about the old UCAA back in the late 50s.

    Feati crushes Pythons, 68-62

    October 4, 1959 - Lauro Mumar's Feati University Hi-Flyers sent their UCAA basketball title-retention hopes into course by crushing the MLQU Pythons, 68-62, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Timely drives by Valentine Borromeo, Federico Salonga and Alberto Capito assured the Hi-Flyers of victory after the Pythons, under Charlie Martin had slithered to within a basket off the lead.

    Saints punish Capitol

    October 12, 1959 - San Sebestian College won its third straight victory over Capitol City College, 78-67, in the final round of the UCAA senior cage tournament at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The game was a nip-and-tuck affair in the first half. The SSC saints trailed by three points at halftime, 27-30. paced by Alfredo Eustaquio and Florentino Tolentino, the Saints staged a second half rally to tie the score at 64-all and went on to ice the contest.
    Manuel L. Quezon University stayed hot on the heels of the Saints by topping Lyceum's Pirates, 69-64, to remain in second place.

    Feati, MLQU enter finals

    October 20, 1959 - Feati University and Manuel L. Quezon University gained the finals of the UCAA senior basketball series by overwhelming their respective rivals at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Feati's defending champion hi-flyers, guided by coach Lauro Mumar, handed Capitol City College its fifth consecutive defeat, 91-55

    Feati keeps UCAA Crown

    October 25, 1959 - Feati Hi-Flyers retained the UCAA basketball crown by crushing Manuel L. Quezon University Pythons, 68-52, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Fastbreaking Federico Salonga paced Feati with a game-high 22 points. Much of the credit for the victory went to Coach Lauro Mumar, who moulded the Hi-Flyers into a well-knit squad led by Salonga, Valentino Borromeo, Reynaldo Decena and Alberto Capito.
    The Pythons, powered by Eliseo Mangubat, Claudio Cristobal and Ceferino Tibayan, grabbed the early lead, 22-16. but the Hi-Flyers' floating and pressing zone prevented MLQU's outside shooters from taking clear shots. Feati finished two points behind, 26-24 at halftime.

    Re: UCAA Retro

    BASED on the supplied information, I would guess that this league eventually became the Manila Universities and Colleges Athletic Association (MUCAA) in a few years time. The schools in the story are essentially the same schools that made up the MUCAA.

    MUCAA later merged with the Philippine Integrated Colleges and Universities Athletic Association (PICUAA) circa 1989-1990 to form the Cultural and Athletic Association of Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (CAACUP). Of course, the CAACUP later disbanded to pave the way for the formation of the National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) which in turn set the stage for the formation of today's UCAA.

    I just found a bit of this information that MUCAA actually started in 1977, with PSBA (where I studied) taking the Crown in its maiden year in 1977 and 1979, and Feati university winning in 1978 and 1980, other schools who participate were Lyceum, Philippine College of Criminology, De Ocampo memorial college, NCBA.

    In 1981, MUCAA has had such players like PSBA's Joshua Villapando, Sonny Cabatu, Lyceum's Leo Austria, Danilo Acero, Frederick Ferrer, Dante Gonzalgo, Ricky Cui, Feati's Adonie Tierra, Nazareno Batoon (1980 MUCAA MVP) PCCr's Renato Del Mundo. They were then considered "the other league" certainly has gotten side by side with the NCAA and the UAAP in terms of equalling the glamour of those two popular Collegiate leagues.

    If I'm not mistaken, 1978 RP Youth player and future pro Gary Vargas was a poster boy for this "other league" as a PSBA Jaguar. Credit that to the late Sports Weekly Magazine writer Pyke Jocson who would write about diamonds in the rough and potential superstar collegiate players who were not generally known outside of their respective leagues.

    Re: University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP)

    Favorites register UAAP wins
    July 19, 1959

    Defending champion University of the East, Far Eastern University and Santo Tomas lived up to expectations and posted early victories in this year's UAAP senior basketball tournament which opened at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The FEU Tamaraws, powered by Engracio Arazas who topscored with 26 points, defeated University of the Philippines, 87-85, in overtime. The Regulation score was 74-all.
    Earlier, UST's Goldies turned back National U Bulldogs, 60-52, and in the nightcap, the Warriors issued notice of their title-retention bid by routing the Manila Central University's Tigers, 97-76.

    UST, UP fives bow to rivals
    September 2, 1959

    University of Santo Tomas and the University of the Philippines lost their bids for second round glory in the UAAP cage series when both teamswere defeated by respective opponents at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Goldies, first round titlists, bowed to Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 78-79 while the Maroons dropped an 81-85 decision to the Manila Central U Tigers. Their defeats, their second in the round, pulled the Goldies and Maroons down to third place and left only the unbeaten FEU Tamaraws and the defending champion University of the East in positions to bag the flag.
    The UE Red Warriors stayed in the running by leashing the National University Bulldogs in the nightcap, 63-57 for their third victory in four outings.

    UST thumps UE, regains title
    September 16, 1959

    The University of Santo Tomas displayed a well-knit man-to-man defense to smother the defending champion University of the East, 66-55, and regain the UAAP basketball crown before 9,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    It was the first title for the Goldies after four years of so-so performances. Far Eastern University won it in 1956 and UE took over the next two years. FEU was eliminated by UST this season in the playoffs, 84-67.
    The victory was largely the work of two men who spent most of their playing time on the UST bench this season, rangy Asencion Aparicio and ex-Goldie skipper Angel Pavilano, and old reliable and slippery Rosendo Libunao.
    Established stars of the season, UST's Ramon Cotia and Reynaldo Arenas and UE's Roehl Nadurata, Mario Uson, Herman Dionisio and Tomas Paredes, failed to shake off the jitters. Nadurata, who was usually good for 20 points in tight and crucial matches, was held down to four measly points, all scored from the charity stripe, by? Aparicio.
    The lanky Tommie center didn't only excel in the guarding department. He also spearheaded UST's offensive by scoring 20 points, two points better than Warriors pointman Rizaldo Pabillore's output.
    Aparicio was assisted ably by Libunao whose flawless heaves from quartercourt went for 16 points and Pavilano who checked top UE scoring aces Dionisio, Pabillore and Maximiano Concepcion from doing too much damage.
    This championship was the 10th the Goldies bagged since the loop commenced and, with it, they grabbed the second leg of the three-foot trophy, donated in 1955, that would go to the team that tops the loop thrice.

    National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)

    Red Robins clinch NCAA title
    September 28, 1958

    A jumpshot by rookie Eduardo Remigio in the last three seconds gave the Mapua Tech Red Robins this year's NCAA junior division title with a 62-61 squeaker over the Jose Rizal Light Bombers before 5,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Remigio's effortless jump, coming after teammate Peping Tan had twice missed from inside the keyhole area, gave the Robins their 10th straight victory of the season. The Robins thus regained the junior loop throne which they had abdicated to the Letran Squires last year.
    The Robins played splendidly in the first half leading by 13 points at halftime, 35-22, through the efforts of the unstoppable Tan. But the Lighties staged a great third-quarter rally which wiped out the Robins spread to just one point, 50-51.
    Fifteen seconds from the final gun, the Lighties also took the upperhand, 61-60, when skipper Manuel Manalo drove through the Robins defense to pitch in a running flip, then with seven seconds left in the game, Tan found himself free inside the keyhole but missed the shot, he recovered the ball, shot but missed again, Tan recovered again and executed a pivotal pass to the unguarded Remigio, who calmly sank the winning basket.

    San Beda wins NCAA title
    September 17, 1959

    The San Beda Red Lions survived the late rally of the Jose Rizal Heavy Bombers early in the second half to win this year's NCAA basketball series before 10,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Showing speed, fearsome firepower, domination of the backboards and shifting man-to-man defense, the Red Lions defeated the Heavy Bombers, 81-73. The win gave them the second round flag of the series and consequently, the championship of the glamour loop.
    Six Lions; Alberto Reynoso, Rudolfo de los Santos, Ramon Ascue, Nicholas Carranceja, Jose Oyson and Adel Feliciano, roared loudest in winning for San Beda its first title in four years and ninth in the 35-year existence of the league.
    The Lions were evidently the champions even before the game's final seven minutes ticked off, for they were 17 points ahead, 64-47, having bounced back from a rousing Bomber rally that hacked down their 11-point spread early in the second half to only five, 43-38.
    JRC, fighting for the second round pennant and thereby a best-of-three title series with first round winner San Beda, started under terrific pressure and allowed the Bedans to pounce to a 9-0 advantage.
    After the match, the Bedans were awarded individual medals and the NCAA trophy as a team. They also won the Sportmanlike trophy of Don Manolo Elizalde and Carranceja took the Most Sportsmanlike Player prize.

    Light Bombers snare title
    September 27, 1959

    Jose Rizal College's five year championship famine in the NCAA basketball ended as its Light Bombers took away the junior throne from Mapua Tech Robins with a 40-37 victory in the second game of the best of three title series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Five Lighties - Elias Tolentino, Edgardo Gomez, Renato Perez, Teodoro Galisanao and Reynaldo Valena - stood out somewhat for JRC.

    Manila Athletic Association for Secondary Schools (MAASS)

    Panthers end long drought
    September 26, 1958

    The Union High School Panthers snagged their first Manila Athletic Association for Secondary Schools (MAASS) cage trophy in five years by beating the Philippine Chinese High dribblers, 45-42, before a partly crowd of 800 at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Using the pressing and shifting zone, the Panthers led throughout the game. They led at halftime, 23-17, with lanky Bob Morrow spearheading the attack. The Chinese flubbed several charity attempts in the final minute and these killed their chances of winning the match.
    MAASS president Gerardo Armonio awarded the championship trophy to Union's skipper Rolando Asuncion.

    Adamson trips Union, 61-50, to take title
    October 21, 1959

    The Adamson Baby Falcons clinched the MAASS cage title via sweep by defeating defending champion Union High five, 61-50, at the American School gymnasium.
    The Baby Falcons had earlier swept the first round. Adamson have the game under wraps after posting a 10-point lead, 49-39, in the third quarter. Powered by skipper Danny Bartolome, Eddie Enriquez and Dan Schlatterman, who combined for an output of 43 points, the Baby Falcons buried the Union Panthers with a 33-26 lead at halftime.
    Playing without intensity, Union failed to put up a solid defense against the furious assault of the Baby Falcons, Panthers aces Bob Morrow, Nestor Asuncion and Manuel Tan fared dismally from the field in the face of Adamson's tough defense.
