    RP WINS by 141 Points

    No mercy.
    The Philippines' 20 and under men's basketball team booked itself a finals slot in the SEABA Young Men's Tournament atfer clobbering Brunei Darussalam, 160-19, yesterday at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.
    The Nationals completely dominated the game from start to finish, forcing the Brunei players to commit an eye-poping 73 turnovers, which in turn led to an avalanche of easy baskets. At one point, the RP squad reeled off 33 consecutive points and twice fired 28 in a row.
    It was a pitiful sight to watch the Brunei players fumbling the ball on almost every occasion as they were simply no match against the much taller and more skillful Filipinos. Brunei only managed to score seven points in the final 20 minutes after trailing 12-71 in the opening half.
    Eight out of the 11 players fielded in by Coach Boyzie Zamar scored in double figures led by Jenkins Mesina with 25 points.
    The Filipinos, who notched their second win, will meet Malaysia for the crown today at 3:30 PM. The Malaysians defeated Singapore, 71-62 in the night cap.
    Scores: Philippines 160- Mesina 25, Zagala 20, Tiongco 19, Magsumbol 19, Menor 18, Sotto 17, Kong 16, R. de Ocampo 13, Reroma 7, Coronel 4, Y. de Ocampo 2
    Brunei Darussalam 19- Lim Aik Hock 5, Po Yung Hai 4, Lim Chee Pin 2, Chong Ching Poh 2, Ho Pu Kok 2, Yong Chin Aull 2, Tay Kai Sen 2.
    Halftime: 71-12

    (141 points difference; is this the biggest spread in winning a basketball game in international play? Does any Gameface member have any statistics on this record? Thanks...Toto Battung

    * * *I can proudly say that I watched this game live at the venue.* Talagang nagmukhang kaawa-awa ang mga batang Brunei.

    * * *By the way, Yancy de Ocampo was limited to only two points because he sustained a cut on his eyebrow early in the first period during a loose ball scuffle.* He never returned.

    * * *Also missing from the box scores is forward Nelbert Omolon.

    * * *Just to give a perspective, the Brunei center and tallest player was a fat kid who stood a shade above six feet.* They had at least one more player at the 5'11 to 6'0" range and the rest were from 5'5" to 5'9".

    * * So what happened to this RP Team?

    * * Nelbert Omolon (Sta. Lucia), Christian Coronel (Sta. Lucia), Ervin Sotto (Alaska) and brothers Yancy de Ocampo (Talk 'N Text) and Ranidel de Ocampo (Talk 'N Text) are still active in the PBA;

    * * Jenkins Mesina had a brief PBA career with Purefoods;

    * * Mark Magsumbol (Quezon), Ronnie Zagala (Taguig) and Mark Kong (Misamis Oriental) are currently playing for different teams in Liga Pilipinas. *Magsumbol (Sta. Lucia/Air 21) and Kong (Alaska/San Miguel/Red Bull) also made it to the PBA;

    * * Britt Reroma is an assistant coach at San Beda-Rizal;

    * * Romar Menor and Patrick Tiongco are OFW's in the Middle East. *Menor played one season of pro ball with Cagayan de Oro in the MBA's final year in 2002;

    * * Coach David "Alamat" Zamar is currently coaching in Indonesia.

    Re: Sports Torch- " A Page from Yesteryear"

    AnthonyServinio, Wow...I knew I've heard about "walking encyclopedia". You have so much information on basketball. There is always interest on "Where are they now?" and you gave some good information on players that played on that 2000 SEABA.
    Emon74, how thick is your binder on Philippine basketball? It's great to read all your clippings. We might not know it yet, but we must be building a thread that future historians might be able to get information on their research for future books or a comprehensive study on Philippine Basketball History. Also connections to families whose relatives once had a part in Philippine basketball.
    Thanks.

    agreed toto, pwede na nga gumawa ng annual or book about the MICAA, since we had knowlegable historians here and the MyPba website who had rich recollections of philippine basketball history from 1950-onwards, amazing is it, if you notice lang I missed out the 1970s era where wala ko mga files, its a good thing I keep more for future references. Thanks too.

    Re: Sports Torch- " A Page from Yesteryear"

    I have previously posted, "Unrivaled Rivalries in Philippine Basketball; Yco-Ysmael, Toyota-Crispa and La Salle-Ateneo" as part of A Page from Yesteryear. Now a new part will be: "The Game that Matters: Basketball's Title Clinchers". Whether its a best of 3, best of 7 or knockout there's the game that counts: the title clincher. It's nice to put the the first story on National University Bulldogs, the so called perennial cellar dwellars of UAAP. Fifty five (55) years ago, they are the toast of Phillippine college basketball. They were champions before and they can be champions again. Never say never. Read on.

    NU Cops 1954 UAAP Title
    by: Tirso L. Rodriguez

    The inspired National U Bulldogs, playing in their now-or-never year, furiously battled the pace-setting Far Eastern U Tamaraws in a make-or-break game and clobbered the Tamaraws, 41-36 to ticket their way into their first varsity title since 1938 last night as the drawn out 1954 University Athletic Association of the Philippines cage loop rang down it's curtains at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Earlier, the University of Santo Tomas stopped their staggering ways and pounded out a 79-65 win over the fighting University of the Philippines Maroons. In the afternoon appetizers, the UST Golden Nuggets bulldozed its way into their first postwar high school championship when they snapped the long-reign of the FEU Baby Tamaraws in the prep division with a 42-33 victory while the NU Bullpups eked out a razor-thin 62-60 win over a determined University of Manila Rammites to move into third honors of the high school circuit.
    There were no signs that an impending crash was upon them nor were the gods unkind to last year's runner-up, the highly favored FEU Tamaraws, as they jumped into an easy 9-1 lead through the wicked outside shooting of Amador, Relosa and Alcabao. Then when the familiar rout was on its way, the lowly Bulldogs, sparked by the brilliant playing of skipper Tony Villamor suddenly came to life as Calara erupted twice in a row to chop the Tamaraws advantage. Amador and Ligeraldo stretched their spread but Verzosa from the side and Villamor with a long flip kept them in the fight, 14-11. Alcabao and De Jesus traded compliments from way out, 16-13. Relosa countered with a charity and Villamor from under made it 17-15. Another long shot from Relosa pulled the Tamaraws further but De Jesus could not be denied as he retaliated with the same dose, 19-17. Then Relosa was fouled by Verzosa which he made good followed by a grand slam by Ligeralde to give the Tamaraws the driver's seat at lemontime.
    With their back against the wall, the Bulldogs were at their best as Tony Villamor electrified the 12,000 crowd with his rebound savvy, feinting and scoring sock. Aided by the tight patrolling of the backlines by De Jesus and Calara and the high geared shooting of San Juan and Verzosa, the Bulldogs were able to slash the commanding lead of the Tamaraws, 28-27. Figueroa from the foul line and Santos with a hook pulled the Tamaraws away from the fire. Then with 5:45 to go, De Jesus scored twice from the outside to knot the count at 31-all. Seconds later he converted a charity to put the Bulldogs into the lead, 32-31. Amador in no time levelled the count again to 32-all from the foul area when De Jesus came through with three conversions from the bucket line to forge once more into the lead.
    A temporary crisis hit the NU crew when Villamor had to rest from cramps and Calara fouled out with four minutes to go. Relosa kept the Tamaraws in the thick of the fight from the charity line, 33-35. De Jesus fired another charity and Teh came through with a "long Tom" for a 38-33 bulge. Teh and Relosa exchanged a shot each after misses from the foul line, 38-34. Verzosa stretched the lead to 39-33 followed by Villamor's twin charities to wrap the game. A long shot by Relosa proved to be the last stand of FEU, as the gun barked ending hostilities.

    Unrivaled Rivalries: Yco-Ysmael (MICAA)

    Yco nips Ysmael Steel, 79-77, one game away from title

    Manila, August 29, 1961- Yco came from behind to nose out Ysmael Steel, 79-77 to move within a game of retaining the MICAA cage championship before 10,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Painters fought it out with the Admirals toe to toe until the homestretch, but three lanky Olympian Cristobal Ramas, who had played heads up game, enable Yco to break loose in the last 50 seconds of regulation play.
    Yco cashed in on Ramas' error when Carlos Badion, who, with Christino Arroyo, Edgardo Ocampo and Robert Littaua carried the Painters in the clutches, baited Ysmael forward Cesar Jota for two free throws to seal the fate of the game.
    The Admirals took command at halftime, 44-42, behind the sweet-shooting Narciso Bernardo, who topscored the game for 25 markers, but Yco gained fire when Bernardo fouled out with five minutes to play.
    The win was the 11th for the Painters in 12 matches, U-Tex snapped Yco's 10-game winning streak by edging out the Painters, 70-69, last week.

    November 10, 1987

    Magnolia Ice Cream clinched the third outright semifinals berth in the PABL Maharlika cup at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum after a spirited 102-87 win over Sta.Lucia Realty.
    A 25-10 salvo by the Ice Cream Makers in the middle of the second half was the decisive turning point of the game as they posted a commanding 14-point advantage.
    Magnolia joined early semifinal qualifiers RFM-Swifts and Lhuillier. Sta.Lucia, on the other hand, joined Philips Sardines, Purefoods and Miescor in a two-round elimination that will determine the last team that would qualify into the next round.
    In the other games, Bahrain downed the fledgling RP Youth team, 88-84, while Lhuillier escaped Miescor, 111-104.

    November 15, 1987 (Asian Basketball Confederation)

    Defending champion RP mustered its enough strength and unleashed a superb offensive in the second half to crush tall Jordan, 97-91.
    Trailing by 15 points, the Locals bankrolled on successive shots by Joshua Villapando, Nelson Asaytono and Ronnie Magsanoc to jam the Jordanians.
    Added bonus to the boys in their elimination round campaign was the non-appearance of Iran which was scheduled to be their next assignment. The extra day off will be used by coach Joe Lipa to scout the rest of the top contenders.
    In the other game, Thailand treated the homecrowd with a victory over Indonesia, 85-68.

    YCO Raps SMB, 105-81
    Heacock's Scares PAL

    Viscounts Win by 77-70,
    Admirals Play Crispans
    7-Up vs. Yellow Taxi Tonight

    The Evening News
    The Leading Afternoon Daily
    Date: ?

    YCO Athletic Club's Redshirts, shooting beyond the century mark under pressure from San Miguel Brewery's hard-trying Braves bagged their second triumph in as many tries at Rizal Coliseum last night by pounding out a 105-81 decision, the first time this round that a team went beyond two figures.
    Philippine Airlines Viscounts, paced by Venture for Victory Crusaders' Tine Hardemann and Bud Shaeffer, with added scoring sock by Nilo Fuentebella and Benjamin Rosello, broke away from the Heacock's Speed Merchants in the final five minutes of the game for a 77-70 victory.
    Surprisingly, both encounters were thrillers, the Yco-SMB tilt, though only up to a certain point.
    Wiping out a 4-point deficit at the half, which ended at 37-35, the Speed Merchants on the drives of tall Benjamin Falcon, bulky Andres Manaol and little Adriano Mora romped ahead to a 62-58 with little over five minutes left in the game.
