    Meteors acquires new players for second season
    Sports & Leisure By John Montalvan
    Saturday, November 29, 2008

    After a frustrating third-place finish in the inaugural staging of Liga Pilipinas, Misamis Oriental Meteors has strengthened its line-up by acquiring new yet experienced players.

    “We really need a legitimate center,” says Meteors head coach Jun Noel during a television interview on Friday (Nov. 21) when he presented two of the team’s acquisitions, the six-foot-seven behemoth Mark Kong and six-foot-five bulky Ian Daja. Both Kong and Daja alternately controlled the boards and covered the paint when they played with the Pagadian Explorers last season.

    Noel said they have also acquired the services of Joey Mente who has carved a name in PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) for his do-or-die plays and aggressiveness on the floor as well as collegiate standout Lyndon Gudez.

    In a separate television show, Misamis Oriental Governor Oscar S. Moreno also announced the coming in of Jeffrey Bombeo and Rocky Sanchez, both natives of Misamis Oriental.

    Moreno said they have retained the services of point-guards Ramil Tagupa and Mark Moreño, forwards Jerome Paterno, Dexter Mikotoan, and Jerome Numeran.

    “What is important is teamwork, that each player contributes to the team,” stressed the governor, who himself plays the game as the captain ball of the Misamis Oriental Executives, and sits as chair of the Liga Pilipinas and in the Samahang Basketbolista ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    Opening of Liga Pilipinas second conference is set in Cebu City on December 10, this year.

    Re: Misamis Oriental Meteors

    * * *GINGOOG CITY – Will the surging Misamis Oriental Meteors finally win one leg for the home teams?* That question will be answered as the team of Gov. Oscar Moreno and Coach Jun Noel play hosts to the defending National Champion M. Lhuillier-Cebu Ninos, Quezon Red Oilers and Iloilo Mang Inasals in the Misamis Oriental Leg, the last of 11 legs that make up the 2009 Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference II.

    * * *With three legs under their belts, the Meteors are installed as the heavy favorites as action unfolds tonight and tomorrow at the Mayor Arturo Lugod Gym.* The venue shifts to the Xavier University Gym in Cagayan de Oro City for Friday’s and Saturday’s games.

    * * *No host team has successfully defended their home courts this conference backed by Smart, ML Kwarta Padala, Accel, Air 21, Burlington, Laptop Phoneshop Exchange, Nature’s Spring and Molten and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    * * *The Meteors – who are supported by Holcim Cement, Hanjin and Hapee Toothpaste – captured legs in Zamboanga City, Los Banos, Laguna and last week in Cebu City.* Focus will be on Friday’s meeting with the Ninos, who the Meteors defeated in controversial fashion last Saturday for the Cebu City leg at the University of San Carlos-Main Gym.

    * * *Revenge will be on the minds of the Cebuanos, who lost the game thanks to two free throws by Mark Yee off an Ariel Mepana foul with 0.3 seconds left, 68-69.* The Ninos also hope to pick up enough Liga Tour Points to barge into the Top Four and grab home court advantage in the first round of the National Playoffs later this month.

    * * *Yee, the current leader in the race for the conference’s Most Valuable Player, will again be at the forefront of the Meteors’ charge along with Cebu City Leg MVP Joey Mente, Mark Kong, Erian Daja, Ramil Tagupa, Dexter Micutuan and Mark Moreno.* Completing the Meteors’ roster are Rocky Sanchez, Jerome Numeran, Jerome Paterno, Jeff Bombeo, Ferdinand Go, Lyndon Gudez, Welland Munoz and Mel Latoreno.

    * * In order to fortify their chances, the Ninos have enlisted help in the form of former Trace-Laguna Stallion banger Abby Santos and balikbayan swingman Mike Dizon from Florida.* The Ninos of Michel Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba have been playing with injuries to players Ronald Bucao, Jayford Rodriguez and Alex Cainglet.* They occupy Fifth Place in the standings with 26 points.

    * * *The Meteors are also in good position to overtake the Stallions for the top spot of the standings, a position held by the wards of Erwin Genuino and Coach Nomar Isla since the opening week of the conference last January 14.

    * * *Aside from the interest generated by the Meteors-Ninos rivalry, the Red Oilers and Mang Inasals hope to use this final leg to improve their playoff position.* The Mang Inasals (14 points) of Robert Uy and Coach Jerry Jaranilla need nothing less than a win in the preliminary round coupled with a Third Place finish in order to dislodge the idle MP Warriors of GenSan (17 points) for the eighth and last playoff berth.

    * * *Meanwhile, the Red Oilers of Gov. Raffy Nantes and Coach Oliver Bunyi hope to continue their string of three leg finals appearances this conference as one of Liga’s most improved franchises.* The Red Oilers currently occupy Third Place with 29 points in a tie with the Manila Capitals.

    GINGOOG CITY – The defending National Champion M. Lhuillier-Cebu Ninos found renewed energy in the fourth period to crush the Quezon Red Oilers, 92-75, the begin the Misamis Oriental Leg of the 2009 Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference II Wednesday night (March 11) at the Arturo S. Lugod Memorial Sports and Cultural Center.

    After Roberts Labagala put the Red Oilers on top for the last time at the 5:46 mark of the final period, 66-65, Mark Ababon completed a three-point play to ignite a 22-4 M. Lhuillier blast en route to an 87-70 lead with 1:10 left in the contest. Woodraw Enriquez, Marlon Basco and Stephen Padilla joined Ababon in methodically transforming the once tight contest into a runaway for the Ninos of Michel Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba.

    The Ninos then coasted to the win and hiked their Liga Tour Points total to 27 and remained at Fifth Place, two points behind the Third Place Red Oilers of Gov. Raffy Nantes and Coach Oliver Bunyi. In between are the idle Manila Capitals, who also have 29 points, but the Red Oilers hold the better tiebreak quotient.

    Padilla and Ababon led the Ninos with 18 points each followed by Basco with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Mark Magsumbol paced the Red Oilers with 18 markers while Ramsey Williams chipped in 15.

    The thrilling contest saw four deadlocks and 19 lead changes as the Red Oilers hung tough against the Ninos for three and a half periods. Coach Alcoseba drew commendable performances from new recruits Abby Santos and Mike Dizon, who pumped in eight points each with Santos adding 11 rebounds. The duo joined the team last Monday.

    The main game between the host Misamis Oriental Meteors and the Iloilo Mang Inasals was reset for Thursday morning after the ship carrying the Mang Inasals failed to arrive on time. The evening games will proceed as scheduled.

    GINGOOG CITY – The visiting Quezon Red Oilers ambushed the host Misamis Oriental Meteors, 67-64, in front of a big crowd Thursday night (March 12) at the Arturo S. Lugod Memorial Sports and Cultural Center in continuing action from Day Two of the Misamis Oriental Leg of the 2009 Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference II.

    After Mark Yee gave the Meteors a comfortable 64-59 lead with 2:28 to play, the hosts suddenly could not buy a basket and lapsed into a series of errors that led to five total free throws by Red Oilers guard Roberts Labagala to threaten, 63-64.

    Labagala then completed his end-game heroics with a daredevil drive to the basket at the 13-second mark to push the Red Oilers of Gov. Raffy Nantes and Coach Oliver Bunyi ahead, 65-64. The Meteors had a chance but Ramsey Williams intercepted the Joey Mente inbound. Williams drew a quick foul and converted both free throws for the final tally with 10 seconds on the clock. The Meteors then fired a hurried triple but to no avail.

    The Red Oilers were comfortably ahead at halftime, 42-30, despite missing key players Jorel Canizares and Mark Magsumbol due to injuries. The Meteors – who are supported by Holcim Cement, Hanjin and Hapee Toothpaste – leaned on a 16-2 blast to begin the third period behind Yee and Mente for a 48-44 lead. The Red Oilers though fought back and both teams ended up tied entering the fourth and final period, 50-50.

    Labagala finished with 15 points, nine in the crucial fourth period to lead the Red Oilers’ charge. Hafer Mondragon scored 12 of his 14 points in the first half on top of his 10 rebounds. Mente paced the Meteors of Gov. Oscar Moreno and Coach Jun Noel with 16 points while Yee added 15 points and 11 rebounds.

    The games of Liga Pilipinas Conference II are made possible by Smart, ML Kwarta Padala, Accel, Air 21, Burlington, Nature’s Spring, Laptop Phoneshop Exchange and Molten and are under the supervision of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP). Selected games may be viewed over Solar Sports and Viva Prime Channel.

    In the first game, the defending National Champions M. Lhuillier-Cebu Ninos roared to their second straight win by destroying the Iloilo Mang Inasals, 94-54. The Mang Inasals absorbed their second straight defeat.

    It was total domination by the Ninos of sports patron Michel J. Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba, save for the initial 8:30 of the contest with Eugene Tan towing Iloilo to a 12-8 edge. Back-to-back triples by Jerry Cavan and Danny Aying followed by two-pointers by Abby Santos and Mark Ababon signaled the Ninos’ comeback and eventual breakaway for good, 18-12.

    The Ninos then went on a crippling 15-3 run to begin the second period en route to a 43-27 halftime advantage. The lead further ballooned to as much as 42 points in the fourth period, 90-48.

    Cavan powered the rout with 14 points followed by Aying, Rino Berame and Mike Dizon all with 12 markers each. Dizon and Berame added 11 and 10 rebounds respectively. Center Francis Barcellano led the Mang Inasals of Robert Uy and Coach Jerry Jaranilla with 16 followed by Tan with 12.

    CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The defending National Champion M. Lhuillier-Cebu Ninos and the Quezon Red Oilers survived a pair of thrillers, fittingly on a Friday the 13th, to arrange a titular showdown for the Misamis Oriental Leg of the 2009 Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference II at the jam-packed Xavier University Gym.

    The Ninos leaned on a jumper by reigning Liga MVP Marlon Basco to shatter a 58-58 deadlock with 40 seconds to go, 60-58. The Meteors tried to recover but Mark Moreno missed a triple and Mark Ababon snared the defensive rebound plus a foul. Not yet in the penalty situation, the Meteors were forced to foul Stephen Padilla, sending the veteran shooter to the free throw line at the 14-second mark.

    Padilla missed the first but made the second. Meteors coach Jun Noel called a timeout and the ball went to Joey Mente, who fired an off-balanced triple that was eventually batted out of bounds by Bruce Dacia with two ticks to go. The Meteors burned their final timeout. Jerome Paterno took a quick heave from way beyond the arc that went no where, leaving the Meteors out of leg finale for the first time and marking the first back-to-back losses for the team this conference. The Ninos registered a clean sweep of the preliminary round and picked up a two-Liga Tour point bonus for doing so.

    Woodraw Enriquez opened the fourth period with back-to-back triples that pushed the Ninos to their biggest lead, 52-41. However, Mark Kong led a spirited rally by the Meteors, capped by a Moreno triple with a minute to play that tied the game for the last time, 58-58.

    Basco recovered from his scoreless output the night before with 16 points and eight rebounds. Dacia added 14 points. Mark Yee led the Meteors of Gov. Oscar Moreno with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Kong submitted eight of his 10 points in the fourth period.

    In the first game, the Quezon Red Oilers needed an extra five minutes to eliminate the Iloilo Mang Inasals, 90-88. An unlikely hero emerged in center Arden Guiyab, who nailed the winning basket from the left corner with four seconds to play. Iloilo coach Jerry Jaranilla called a timeout but Stanley Tizon launched a hurried triple that went nowhere.

    Earlier, Guiyab gave the Red Oilers a two-point edge with a free throw off the final foul of Francis Barcellano, 88-86, and 1:11 on the clock. Eugene Tan then tied the game for the last time at the 26-second mark on two free throws off the fifth and final foul of Hafer Mondragon, 88-88.

    Ramsey Williams forced the overtime by making a free throw with still 1:41 left in regulation. Both teams lapsed into a series of errors to set the stage for the overtime.

    Roberts Labagala paced the Red Oilers of Gov. Raffy Nantes and Coach Oliver Bunyi with 17 points while Jorel Canizares added 14. Jojo Laborte led the Mang Inasals of Robert Uy with 20 points but shot only six out of 14 from the free throw stripe. Sanny Abaring followed with 15 markers.

    The Ninos and Red Oilers faced off for the Manila Leg crown last February 21, with the Ninos of Michel Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba prevailing, 93-84. Both teams shoot for their second leg title this conference supported by Smart, ML Kwarta Padala, Accel, Burlington, Air 21, Nature's Spring, Laptop Phoneshop Exchange and Molten and supervised by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).
