    The Growling Tigers will be without Cruz, Cuan, Canlas, Camus, Chester Taylor and Mel Gile next season.

    Tigers scramble past Saints
    By Francis Ochoa
    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    GAMES THURSDAY (Makati Coliseum)
    9:00 a.m.—EAC vs. Lyceum
    10:30 a.m.—De Ocampo vs. STI
    12:00 p.m.—St Clare vs. Las Pinas College
    1:30 p.m.—UST vs. St Francis

    MANILA, Philippines—Against a team that hammered out one of the most stunning upsets in history, sluggish and practice-deprived University of Santo Tomas needed a pair of trey-aided runs in the second half to keep itself from falling victim to a shocker.

    The Tigers, getting key baskets from beyond the arc when they needed it most, held off the St. Clare Saints, 80-71, at the start of the wild card phase of the Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship Wednesday at the Makati Coliseum.

    Francis Allera and Clark Bautista combined for 11 points built around three triples that gave the Tigers a 75-61 spread in the final period and helped move UST to within a win of at least a tie for one of two slots in their group that will get tickets to one of four zonal competitions next month.

    But judging from how the Tigers looked Wednesday, that win may be tough to clinch.

    “We’re out of shape,” coach Pido Jarencio said in Filipino after the victory. “We basically only had three days to prepare for this tournament.”

    UST started out strong in the first period to take a 20-9 lead. But the sluggish Tigers kept throwing the ball, allowing the Saints to rally. The Tigers trailed by a point at halftime, 41-42, and, early in the third, crammed three turnovers in a 20-second stretch.

    But Chris Camus, Dylan Ababou and Clark Bautista hit their triples late in the third as UST started peeling away, 61-53.

    St. Clare is known in basketball circles as the team that snapped University of Manila’s amazing 86-game winning streak in the most dramatic way possible—Dennis San Pedro hitting a three-point heave from mid-court at the buzzer for that historic 81-80 victory three years ago.

    Allera led five UST cagers in double figures with 22 points.

    Aries Pariñas finished with a game-high 25 points for the Saints, who are coached by basketball legend Jimmy Mariano.

    In other games, Emilio Aguinaldo College downed De Ocampo, 80-70, while Lyceum, riding on the heroics of Joseph Abuya, watched STI’s Mark Cabangon miss a short stab at the buzzer to hang on to an 88-86 triumph. Las Piñas College, meanwhile, waylaid St. Francis, 62-53.
    What you grinning at Pyscho?

    Lyceum enters zonal phase in collegiate tiff

    Lyceum of the Philippines University earned a berth in the zonal phase even as University of Santo Tomas bagged its second straight win in the resumption of the 2008 Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship wildcard tournament at the Makati Coliseum.

    The Pirates, who were among the 16 teams who participated in last year’s tilt, pulled away in the fourth quarter to defeat UCAA runner-up Emilio Aguinaldo College, 86-80, while the Growling Tigers dumped St. Francis of Assisi College in a tension-filled 64-51 triumph.

    The victories enabled both teams claim top spot in their respective divisions heading into today’s final day of hostilities with UST needing a win against Las Piñas College to reach the next phase.

    “Yung quickness talaga naming sa both ends ang nagpanalo sa amin,” said Lyceum head coach Bonnie Tan. “Masaya kami na makakapasok ulit kami sa next phase ng tournament.”

    Edgar Difuntorum topscored with 21 points while Joseph Abaya added 17 markers as the Pirates pulled away from a slim one-point lead with under seven minutes in the game.

    An 11-1 blast in a span of three minutes gave LPU an 81-70 lead as Difuntorum hit six points during that telling run.

    Jon Santos led the Generals with 15 points with Julius Quiambao adding 12 markers.

    On the other hand, Dylan Ababou recorded a game-high 30 points as UST, who finished a disappointing fifth in the recent UAAP season, led by a high of 19 points in the final canto, 56-37, after sailing through with a comfortable lead during the first three quarters.

    St Francis, who captured the UCAA title in 2007, managed to trim a large margin into seven, 58-51, on a triple by Jan Dulawan with 2:19 left only for Ababou to convert a trey on the following play that virtually sealed the win.

    A minor altercation with 35.2 seconds left in the game led to the ejection of UST big man Mel Gile and St Francis’ James Castanarez and Rex Leynes.

    Leynes led the Doves with 19 points while Dulawan chipped in with 17 markers.

    Meanwhile, St Clare College of Caloocan kept its hopes of making the zonals alive when they defeated LPC, 74-68, as southpaw guard Edu Mustre scored 25 points.

    The Saints, fourth-placer in the NAASCU tournament, made a booming 25-1 run to end the second quarter as Mustre scored 23 points during that said burst.

    Point guard Red Nacianceno added 14 points for St Clare while Blue Lions big man Sereno Cunial scored 20 points in a losing cause.

    In another match, STI College forced a virtual rubber match with EAC for the final Group A slot in the zonal phase with a convincing 76-65 rout of De Ocampo Memorial College as Ramon Mabayo led the NAASCU second placers with 19 points.

    GAMES FRIDAY (Makati Coliseum)
    9 a.m.—STI vs EAC
    10:30 a.m.—Lyceum vs De Ocampo
    12 noon—St. Francis vs St Clare
    1:30 p.m.—UST vs Las Piñas College

    MANILA, Philippines—Speedy Lyceum of the Philippines University broke away from Emilio Aguinaldo College in the fourth quarter to tally an 86-80 victory Thursday and return to the zonal phase of the 2008 Smart-KFC-PLDT Philippine Collegiate Championship League wild-card tournament.

    The Pirates’ second win in as many outings overshadowed the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers’ 64-51 conquest of the St. Francis of Assisi College Doves in the last game of a quadruple header at the Makati Coliseum.

    Though UST, which is trying to atone for its disappointing fifth-place finish in the UAAP, carries a similar 2-0 slate, it still needs to hurdle Las Piñas College on Friday to reach the 16-team next phase.

    With Edgar Difuntorum hitting six points in a telling 11-1 run in a three-minute span in the fourth period, the Pirates stormed ahead, 81-70. The Generals fell to 1-1.

    Thriving on fastbreak plays, Difuntorum wound up with 21 points while Joseph Abaya chipped in 17 markers for the Pirates of coach Bonnie Tan.

    “Yung quickness talaga namin sa both ends ang nagpanalo sa amin (It was our quickness on both ends that enabled us to win),” said Tan. “Masaya kami na makakapasok ulit kami sa next phase ng tournament (We’re happy to enter the next phase of the tournament).”

    Former Philippine Youth player Dylan Ababou tallied a game-high 30 points as UST led by as many as 19 in the final canto, 56-37.

    St. Francis, winner of last year’s UCAA title, moved within 58-51 on a triple by Jan Dulawan with 2:19 to go, but Ababou answered with a trey to quell the rally.

    An altercation in the last 35.2 seconds led to the ejection of UST big man Mel Gile and St. Francis’ James Castañarez and Rex Leynes, the Doves’ topscorer with 19 points.

    St. Clare College of Caloocan, drawing 25 points from southpaw guard Edu Mustre, kept its zonal bid alive with a 74-68 win over LPC.

    STI College dumped De Ocampo Memorial College, 76-65, to forge a virtual rubber match with EAC for the last Group A slot in the zonals.
    It's BASKETBALL that makes the World go round!

    Re: PCCL News and Updates

    Ray Gamboa, chief of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League, formally launched the PCCL last night at the Collegiate Basketball Awards Night of the UAAP and NCAA Press Corps. Inquirer sports writer and assistant editor Jasmin Payo hosted the event on behalf of the Philippine Sportswriters Association. Gamboa spoke concisely but accurately on the philosophy and principles behind the national collegiate championships, explaining the various benefits of the tournament not just for the participating schools but also for Philippine basketball in general. "We are looking forward to truly making this tournament an institution," Gamboa declared in an interview before he spoke on stage.

    SBP President and Smart Chair Manuel V Pangilinan also stated that the award winners that evening - JV Casio, Chris Tiu, Rabeh Al-Hussaini, Jason Ballesteros and Nigerian Samuel Ekwe might just be on the next national team that will be seeing action in the 2010-2011 qualifying tournaments of FIBA for the London Olympics. "We want to see all of the best young players form the core of national team that hopefully will represent the Philippines in the London Olympics in 2012, that is why we are very excited to see all of the best young players here tonight," said Pangilinan in an interview after the ceremonies were over.

    Pangilinan doubles prize money in Collegiate meet

    Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Manny V. Pangilinan has raised the stakes for next month’s Philippine Collegiate Championship League after disclosing that he will match the prize money given to the top four winners of the annual event.

    Pangilinan said during the 2008 Collegiate Basketball Awards last Tuesday night that the additional money will be given to the team’s and the winning coach in order to give the PCCL more interest.

    "We doubled the money so that the teams would fight for that kind of money and also to make the league more interesting," Pangilinan said.

    The PCCL gives cash prizes in support of the sports developments and scholarships of the winning schools. R500,000 will be given to the champion team, R200,000 for the runner-up, R100,000 for the third placer and R50,000 for the fourth-placed team.

    "A national championship of this magnitude is very taxing and very costly," said PCCL chairman Rey Gamboa. "But it takes time and effort for the teams to pass through this process so we lined up with a number of prizes and grants."

    Gamboa added that the champion team will represent the country in the 2009 Universiade Games in Serbia.

    Ateneo de Manila captured the PCCL title last year after trouncing CESAFI champion University of the Visayas in the finals.

    Several teams from 25 mother leagues around the country fought have in several qualifying rounds for the zonal phase set next month in Manila, Ormoc City and Cagayan de Oro City.

    The top two teams from the four zonal tournaments will fill out the remaining eight slots in the Sweet 16 tourney set on November 24.

    Ateneo, UV, NCAA champion San Beda College, De La Salle, Jose Rizal University, NAASCU titlist San Sebastian College Recoletos de Cavite, Manuel L Quezon University, and UCAA winner Universal College of Nursing have been given outright slots.
