    Re: University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP)

    Warriors win UAAP crown
    September 17, 1958

    Olympian Consatancio Ortiz, Jr. sizzled all night long with his outside shots as he bannered defending champion University of the East to its second straight UAAP crown by blasting Manila Central University, 102-88, before a sparse crowd of 4,000 at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Ortiz, the Warriors' top rifleman, mocked all guards thrown at him by the Tigers as he scored a league record of 51 points which eclipsed the 46 registered by University of Manila's Vicente Casado five years ago. Also overshadowed by Ortiz' impeccable outside shooting was the 43-point output of National University's Narciso Bernardo, the best individual scoring record last year.
    With Ortiz running rings around MCU's Damian Lim, Henry Hill and Juan Rivera, the Warriors took a 16-8 advantage, but the Tigers rallied mightily through the heads-up plays of Manuel Abella, Ernesto Gonzalo, Jr. Eduardo Zamora and Rivera to deadlock the game at 16-16.
    Both teams battled evenly as the Tigers gallantly frustrated the Warriors' breakaway bid until the sweet shooting Ortiz resumed his net ripping chores that gave the Azcarraga-based dribblers a 50-42 halftime advantage.
    The Warriors managed to post a 53-44 lead early in the final half but again MCU struck back, chopping the advantage to just five, 52-57. Undaunted, the Warriors with Ortiz getting able support from Roehl Nadurata, Mario Uson and Agapito de Castro, widened UE's lead to 12 points, 82-70, enroute to an unassailable 100-82 advantage with two minutes left.

    The YCO Painters & Ysmael Steel

    Painters turn back Chinese
    October 30, 1958

    Yco Athletic Club frustrated the visiting Keh Nan Tigers, 80-72, in its farewell appearance before some 7,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Carlos Loyzaga, Loreto Carbonell and Martin Urra provided the firepower but it was the excellent playmaking chores of spitfire Eddie Lim which broke the back of the Tigers, 8 of whom are members of the Sino Asiad contingent. Keh Nan is also the reigning Republic of China national champion.

    Ysmael edges Yco, cops title
    November 13, 1958

    Ysmael Steel leaned on its little men to barrel its way to a surprising 88-84 victory over defending champion Yco Athletic Club and rule the Challenge to Champions tournament at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Admiral Cesar Jota, who sizzled all night long en route to a game high 32 points and Tito Villareal, provided the spark and the needed points as Ysmael scored one of the year's biggest surprises in local cagedom before an overflowing crowd of 6,000 fans.
    The other games saw Seven-Up repulse University of the East Warriors, 87-86, in double overtime to cop third place. Both teams battled to a 66-all deadlock in regulation and the first overtime at 77-all, before the Marauders finally surged ahead in the second extension mainly on the hits of Siegfredo Fuentes and Nap Flores.

    September 29, 1959

    The Ysmael Steel Admirals proved as the strongest challenge to the Yco Painters' claim to the national basketball championship this year as they outclassed the six-time national titlists Painters, 86-74, in the Philippine Tuberculosis Society benefit dream game witnessed by 10,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    With Alfonso Marquez taking over from Bobby Flores as the shotcaller for the Admirals, they surged to a 10-point lead, 29-19, despite the presence of Carlos Loyzaga, Edgardo Ocampo and Carlos Badion.
    Yco slugged back with the entry of Eddie Lim and Loreto Carbonell, combined with Loyzaga and Badion, the Painters came close, cutting the Admirals lead to four, 33-29. Cesar Jota and Marquez countered for Ysmael and at halftime, the Admirals led by eight, 45-37.

    Painters outclass Seoul squad, 90-75
    November 3, 1959

    The favored Philippines Yco team won its third straight victory in the Presidential Birthday basketball tournament by defeating the Seoul quintet, 90-75, at the Taipei's Armed Forces stadium.
    Carlos Badion, who led the game scoring with 29 points, and Loreto Carbonell shattered the Korean defense with their accurate long shots.
    The Painters won their first game against the Chinese junior champion team Kuo Kwang, 88-79, in overtime and routed Kokan club of Japan, 87-52, in their second outing.

    Yco five trips Chinese, 97-78
    November 11, 1959

    The Philippine Yco basketball team won its eight consecutive game and the championship of the Presidential Birthday basketball tournament by defeating the Chinese Keh Nan, 97-78, at the Taipei's Armed Forces stadium.
    The soft-spoken coach Leopoldo Prieto caught the Chinese all-stars by surprised by putting for the first time in the tournament, both sharpshooting Loreto Carbonell and Carlos Badion in the court from the very beginning.
    Badion led the scoring honors with 24 points, followed by Francis Wilson, who canned in 17 points.
    The President Chiang-Kai-Shek silver cup was presented to the Yco club in the closing ceremony.

    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.

    Nicholas "Tata" Carranceja was the 1959 NCAA MVP. That performance enabled him to be included in the 1960 "Asian Olympics". I still have photos and articles of the 1959 San Beda Red Lions still buried at the basement. I'll try to post them when I find it.

    Hmmm I had a classmate in SBC HS batch 98 with a surname Carranceja, Martin was his first name. Anak siguro yun.
