    By Celest R. Flores

    5:59 pm | Thursday, November 28th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines—National University drew huge support from its bench and disposed of University of the East, 73-63, Thursday to continue its journey in the Philippine Collegiate Champions’ League Sweet 16.

    Bobby Ray Parks was just two dimes shy of a triple double, finishing with 18 points, 15 rebounds and eight assists, but had help from the second and third units.

    Guard Gelo Alolino, meanwhile, chipped in 15 points, while Tristan Perez had 12 points for the Bulldogs, whose bench contributed 30 points against the Warriors’ 14.

    NU faces San Sebastian or Far Eastern University on Monday in the hopes of inching closer it to the final four and joining La Salle, San Beda and Southwestern University.

    The Warriors bowed out of the tournament despite valiant effort from guard Roi Sumang, who had 20 points, five rebounds and five assists.

    Charles Mamie also had 13 points and 20 rebounds for UE.

    PCCL: Belo, Iņigo step up for the Tamaraws in win over Stags

    By Celest R. Flores

    11:26 pm | Thursday, November 28th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University hardly looked like it was missing its two best players as the Tamaraws defeated San Sebastian, 83-73, to continue their 2013 Philippine Collegiate Champions League campaign.

    The Tamaraws didn’t have their star guards Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia, who both have moved on to the pros, but had others to carry the cudgels.

    “It’s a different team but everything’s positive on our side,” said head coach Nash Racela.

    Mark Belo stepped up for FEU in the post-Romeo/Garcia era, delivering 19 points and 14 boards while sophomore guard Achie Iņigo connected on four triples for a 14-point showing.

    Big man Anthony Hargrove also turned in 14 markers and 15 points, while Mike Tolomia contributed 11 points, six rebounds and eight dimes.

    The Tamaraws face earlier’s winner National University on Monday with a chance to continue their bid in the PCCL sweet 16, and into the final four.

    The Stags drew 20 points from CJ Perez, but it wasn’t enough to propel them further in the competition.

    Tigers upend Knights; Tams maul Bulldogs

    By Joey Villar

    (The Philippine Star) | Updated December 3, 2013 - 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines - University of Santo Tomas and Far Eastern U came away with a pair of routs to arrange a showdown for the last semifinal berth in the 12th Philippine Collegiate Champions League at the Ynares Sports Center in Pasig City yesterday.

    The Tigers rode on a big third quarter run to blast the Letran Knights, 77-60, in a duel of runners-up in this year’s collegiate leagues, while the Tams also struck in the second half to smother the National U Bulldogs, 88-70.

    UST and FEU face off at 4 p.m. today with the winner joining NCAA champion San Beda and UAAP titlist La Salle and Visayan Leg winner Southwestern U in the round-robin semis starting Dec. 9 at The Arena in San Juan City.

    Clark Bautista buried seven triples and topscored with 23 points while finishing with six assists and three rebounds. He sizzled in the fourth with four treys as the Tigers put away the Knights, whom they eliminated for the second straight year.

    The Tams proved more impressive with a dominating run in the second half as American Anthony Hargrove and Mike Tolomia combined for a whopping 52 points in blowing away the Bulldogs, who led at the turn, 42-36, but were outscored, 11-29, in the third.

    “Going to the first two games, I didn’t really know what to expect,” said FEU coach Nash Racela, after losing the prolific pair of Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia to the pros.

    “But so far I’m getting surprises by the game. Ball movement and defense were good today (yesterday) especially in the second half,” he added.

    The Tigers and the Tams are both ex-champions of this annual league staking P100,000 to the winner with the former going all the way last year and the latter reigning supreme twice in 2004 and 2005.

    The Knights, who edged the Tigers by a point in their benefit game for victims of Typhoon Yolanda two weeks ago, appeared in control after racing to a 24-16 lead after 10 minutes.

    But UST cut the deficit to 32-33 at the break and like FEU, surged to a 52-42 heading to the fourth.

    Belo again carries load as FEU Tamaraws beat Tigers for place in PCCL Final Four

    From: Reuben Terrado

    December 3, 2013, 07:38 pm

    FAR Eastern University built a big first-quarter lead that proved enough to overcome a furious University of Santo Tomas fightback, 71-68, to claim the last semifinal berth of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) Tuesday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

    After opening a 15-3 edge in the opening period, the Tamaraws stretched their lead to as much as 21 points, a cushion big enough to hold off the Tigers’ fourth-quarter rally to claim the Luzon-Metro Manila slot in the Final Four.

    The semifinals kick off on Monday at the Blue Eagle gym.

    The Tamaraws join UAAP and NCAA champions De La Salle and San Beda, along with Southern Islands champion Southwestern University in the Final Four.

    The absence of Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia, was obviously felt by the Tamaraws when the Tigers clawed their way back to grab the lead, 67-65, behind a 29-8 run.

    But FEU made its free throws down the stretch behind Mark Belo and Carl Bryan Cruz to clinch the win.

    “Na-expose talaga ‘yung weakness namin because we lost two guards,” FEU coach Nash Racela said. “Siguro hinahanap namin ‘yun. Tama lang ‘yun, kahit ako ‘yung coach (ng kabilang team), gagawin ko ‘yun.”

    “It was about what they didn’t do,” said Racela, referring to UST’s 1-of-14 shooting from the field in the first period.

    Belo topscored with 19 points, including two free throws following an offensive rebound that settled the final count in the last 4.6 seconds.

    Kevin Ferrer missed the potential game-tying triple at the buzzer.

    Earlier, Jan Sheriff hit a lay-up to give UST a 67-65 lead with 1:54 to play.

    But Belo countered by scoring two free throws following an unsportsmanlike foul by Ferrer to tie the count for the last time, before Cruz hit the go-ahead basket for the Tamaraws.

    Karim Abdul split his two free throws as UST threatened for the last time, 69-68.

    Racela won’t be with the Tamaraws during the Final Four, being one of the deputies of coach Jong Uichico with Sinag Pilipinas team in the 2013 Southeast Asian Games.

    “Nasa Myanmar na ako. Nagawa ko na ‘yung part ko,” Racela said.

    The scores:

    FEU (71) - Belo 19, Tolomia 9, Cruz 9, Inigo 8, Hargrove 8, Pogoy 6, Mendoza 5, Aguilon 3, Dennison 2, Sentcheu 2, Luz 0, Lee Yu 0, Delfinado 0, Jose 0.

    UST (6 - Abdul 20, Ferrer 15, Pe 9, Bautista 9, Daquioag 7, Lo 4, Sheriff 2, Faundo 2.

    Quarterscores: 15-3; 35-24; 57-38; 71-68.

    Cobras, Tamaraws trip seeded rivals

    By Jasmine W. Payo

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    9:48 pm | Monday, December 9th, 2013

    Southwestern University and Far Eastern University brought down reigning collegiate champions in a pair of upsets at the start of the round-robin Final Four of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) yesterday at Blue Eagle Gym in Ateneo.

    Seldom-used Melvin Holper knocked in clutch triples as the SWU Cobras stunned the UAAP titlist La Salle Green Archers, 68-58, in overtime, while Mike Tolomia erupted for 23 points to lift the Tamaraws past four-time NCAA king San Beda, 62-56.

    Holper’s back-to-back three-pointers pushed the Cobras ahead, 64-58, as the Archers wound up scoreless in the last two minutes of extra period.

    “He was the game changer,” SWU coach Yayoy Alcoseba said of Holper, who played 13 of his 14 minutes in the fourth and overtime periods. “He’s just a reliever. This is his longest playing time ever.”

    Mobert Arong paced the Cobras with 17 points and Mark Tallo, the MVP in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) who had a brief stint with La Salle, delivered 13 points, six rebounds and six assists.

    Tolomia unloaded all but two of his 23 points in the second half, where the Tamaraws staged a 15-4 blast at the start of the third quarter to turn a 24-30 halftime deficit into a 39-34 edge.

    The Tamaraws pulled off the upset minus veteran forward Mac Belo, who is playing for the Philippines in the Southeast Asian Games, and head coach Nash Racela, who is also part of the national team coaching staff.

    “Coach Nash reminded us to play 100 percent defense from start to finish,” said FEU deputy Eric Gonzales.

    A Holper triple gave the Cobras their first lead, 44-43, at the 6:58-minute mark in the fourth quarter after trailing by as many as 10 points, 9-19, in the first half.

    “To win against a UAAP champion is an honor, we have to take it,” said Alcoseba. “I think they weren’t able to scout us. And also in the first half, we were not making our shots.”

    La Salle’s Almond Vosotros and Jason Perkins missed potential game-winners in regulation after a Jeron Teng free throw tied the count at 52, time down to 45.8 seconds left.

    Thomas Torres topscored with 12 and Perkins had a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds for the Archers, who missed the services of big man Arnold Van Opstal due to a hip injury.

    The scores:

    First Game

    SOUTHWESTERN 68—Arong 17, Tallo 13, Mohammed 12, Sanjo 11, Holper 9, Goloran 4,Siewe 2, Pardo 0, Bautista 0, Panerio 0, Bregondo 0.

    LA SALLE 58—T. Torres 12, Perkins 10, Teng 7, Salem 7, Vosotros 6, N. Torres 4, Tampus 4, Montalbo 2, Dela Paz 2, Reyes 2, Bollick 2.

    Quarters: 9-16, 23-30, 33-37, 52-52 (reg.), 68-58 (OT)

    Second Game

    FEU 62—Tolomia 23, Cruz 11, Iņigo 8, Hargrove 8, Pogoy 4, Jose 4, Lee Yu 2, Mendoza 2, Dennison 0, Sentcheu 0.

    SAN BEDA 56—Dela Cruz 13, Sara 12, Dela Rosa 10, Adeogun 9, A. Semerad 3, Amer 3, Pascual 2, Abarcar 2, D. Semerad 2, Ludovice 0, Koga 0.

    Quarters: 14-14, 24-30, 46-40, 62-56

    12TH PCCL Championship La Salle, San Beda force sudden death

    By Joey Villar

    (The Philippine Star) | Updated December 11, 2013 - 12:00am

    Games tomorrow (The Arena, San Juan)

    2 p.m. – SWU vs FEU

    4 p.m. – La Salle vs San Beda

    MANILA, Philippines - UAAP champion La Salle and NCAA titlist San Beda bounced back with lopsided victories over Far Eastern U, 80-60, and Southwestern U, 77-49, respectively, yesterday sending the final semis playdate in the 12th Philippine Collegiate Champions League into a pair of sudden death matches at The Arena in San Juan City.

    Stung by a loss to the Tams last Monday, the Red Lions vented their ire on the upstart SWU Cobras, scoring a runaway victory while the Archers broke away in the second quarter to fashion out the easy win after bowing to the Cobras earlier.

    All four teams thus posted 1-1 records heading to tomorrow’s games with San Beda facing La Salle and FEU colliding with SWU. The winners will dispute the crown and the top P100,000 in a best-of-three series starting Monday.

    Mat Salem fired a game-high 17 points, including three triples, while Jeron Teng bounced back from a mediocre seven-point outing with a 13-point performance.

    Earlier, Nigerian Ola Adeogun overpowered fellow Africans Landry Sanjo and Fabrice Siewe and came away with 22 points to power the Lions back into the title hunt after absorbing a stinging 56-62 loss to the Tams at the Blue Eagle Gym last Monday.

    Adeogun also hauled down 11 rebounds, made three blocks and issued two assists, outplaying the equally wide-bodied Sanjo and Siewe, who combined for 22 points and nine boards.

    “I hate losing,” said the 6-7 Adeogun, member of the college basketball’s mythical first team picked by sports scribes covering the beat that included La Salle’s Jeron Teng, Letran’s Raymond Almazan, FEU’s Terrence Romeo and National U’s Bobby Ray Parks Jr.

    “And we never lost two in a row this year so we went out aggressively because we really want to win this game,” he added.

    San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez, however, said defense did the trick as the Lions shackled the Cobras’ top gunners, including reigning CESAFI MVP Mark Tallo, Monbert Arong, Adams Mohammad and Daryl Holper.

    The four ended up with a combined 12-point output after exploding for 51 points in SWU’s shock 68-58 triumph over UAAP titlist La Salle, also last Monday.

    “We knew SWU is a very dangerous team after beating a powerhouse team like La Salle so we made it a priority to shut their shooters down,” said Fernandez. “I have to give credit to the players for getting the job done.”

    The win thus tied San Beda with its victim in the single round robin semis phase.

    A win over La Salle in tomorrow’s last semis playdate will net San Beda a berth in the best-of-three finals starting on Monday and a crack at a first ever championship in the annual event staking P100,000 to the champion.

    The Yayoy Alcoseba-mentored Cobras, seeking to become the first provincial team to win the annual event, also try to rebound from the blowout with a win over the Tams.

    The scores:

    First Game

    San Beda 77 – Adeogun 22, Pascual 14, dela Cruz 10, dela Rosa 8, A. Semerad 7, Amer 5, Sara 3, Ludovice 2, Villaruz 2, Mendoza 2, D. Semerad 1, Abatayo 1

    SWU 49 – Sanjo 13, Siewe 9, Goloran 8, Mohammed 6, Bautista 3, Tallo 2, Ortega 2, Holper 2, Arong 2, Bregondo 2, Panerio 0

    Quarterscores: 23-7; 37-24; 65-38; 77-49

    Second Game

    La Salle 80 – Salem 17, Teng 13, Vosotros 11, Bollick 10, N. Torres 6, Tampus 5, Perkins 4, Reyes 4, T. Torres 3, dela Paz 3, Montalbo 2, Van Opstal 2

    FEU 60 – Pogoy 14, Mendoza 14, Hargrove 12, Jose 7, Cruz 6, Tolomia 4, Luz 2, Agiolon 1, Inigo 0, Santcheu 0

    Quarterscores: 21-16, 49-31, 67-41, 80-60

    Cebu’s SWU stuns FEU for a ticket to PCCL finals

    By Celest R. Flores

    5:09 pm | Thursday, December 12th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines — Southwestern University already had a return flight to Cebu, but the Cobras weren’t planning to go back home just yet.

    Cesafi runner-up SWU stunned Far Eastern University with a convincing 86-71 victory Thursday to book a ticket to the finals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) next week.

    “We already have a ticket tomorrow morning at 8 a.m., I told the boys, we haven’t even arrived yet but they’re already sending us home,” said head coach Yayoy Alcoseba in jest.

    SWU became only the second Cebu team next to the Greg Slaughter-led University of Visayas to make to the final round in the national championships.

    The visiting Cobras broke the game wide open in the second quarter and leading by as many as 19, 50-31, then fended off all of the Tamaraws’ attempts for a comeback.

    SWU, though, was quick to recover from FEU’s flurry of triples that brought the lead down to 10, as the Cobras ended the third with a stable 65-50 lead.

    The Tamaraws, who had a splendid run to the final four sans erstwhile stars RR Garcia and Terrence Romeo, tried anew to storm back, this time inching to within 59-67 on a 9-0 run led by Mike Tolomia.

    But the Cobras refused to budge and just held on to the lead, as Landry Sanjo, Monbert Arong, Adams Mohammed, Mark Tallo fueled their final attack.

    “As I told my players, we just have to hold on. And they delivered and finished the game and we won,” said Alcoseba whose team will face either San Beda or La Salle in the finals.

    Arong shone anew with 23 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals for the Cobras while the Cameroonian Sanjo added 19 points and 15 rebounds.

    Tallo had another blistering output with 16 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals while the Fil-Canadian Mohammed chipped in 15 points, six rebounds and four dimes.

    Gryann Mendoza led the Tamaraws, who played sans coach Nash Racela, led with 16 points along with seven rebounds and six assists in his last game in an FEU jersey.

    Carl Cruz added 15 while Tolomia, who is expected to take on a bigger role for FEU in the next UAAP season, finished with 14 points, along with seven rebounds and five dimes.

    Teng stars in clutch as La Salle beats San Beda for PCCL finals berth

    By Celest R. Flores

    7:19 pm | Thursday, December 12th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines — Jeron Teng thrived in clutch and towed La Salle to a 64-60 win over San Beda Thursday, assuring the UAAP defending champions a slot in the finals of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL).

    Teng unleashed seven points in the final four minutes for the Green Archers and sank a nifty go-ahead bucket off the glass and a freebie with 1:37 to play for a 60-58 edge over the Red Lions.

    Almond Vostros buried a jumper with 34.2 seconds left then turned his miss into a timely assist to Jason Perkins for the game-icing undergoal stab with 6.6 ticks on the clock.

    “They came up with big plays, we grabbed the offensive rebounds. We played big in the final minutes,” said head coach Juno Sauler after the game.

    Teng muscled his way to a sterling 23-point, eight-rebound performance for La Salle. Perkins had 15 points and Vostoros 12.

    “You can see how bad Jeron wants it especially in the endgame. Even if [he's in foul trouble], he’ll play hard defensively. He motivates his teammates,” said Sauler.

    “Sometimes he’s going to take bad shots but that’s what I have to live with. I like his mentality in the end game.”

    Down the stretch, Teng and La Salle’s aggressiveness, especially in the offensive glass, made all the difference against Ola Adeogun and the NCAA champions.

    San Beda last took the on a three-point play by Art Dela Cruz, 58-53, with 3:34 left but didn’t score again until the 32.8 seconds left with La Salle already in the lead by four.

    “Just by playing the NCAA champs, the players get to learn a lot, I got to learn a lot. Just the experience more than the result, that is what I’m thankful for,” said Sauler.

    The Green Archers also kept the streak of UAAP teams making it to the finals of the national championship since 2002 alive. They face Southwestern University in the finals next week.

    “SWU is a very strong team. Their style of play is very hard, tough. We just have to review what we did wrong [in our loss to them],” Sauler said.
