    University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP)

    Goldies Leading
    August 1991

    The University of Santo Tomas Glowing Goldies are turning out to be the big surprise of this year's UAAP varsity basketball tournament. Hardly given a chance after the sudden departure of 7-foot giant EJ Feihl, the Goldies have shamed the sages by winning their first four matches and in impressive fashion at that.
    The Goldies dumped the FEU tamaraws, 114-84 in the inaguarals, clobbered the Ateneo Blue Eagles, 80-60 next, then expectively whipped the NU bulldogs, 87-64. Only the Adamson Falcons for whom Feihl will play next year, were able to test the Goldies to the hilt last Saturday. Powered by 6-9 Marlou Aquino, 6-5 Giovanni Pineda and 6-2 Apollo Lim, the Falcons soared to a 57-32 edge near the end of the first half. Just when the few hardy souls at the Loyola Center thought the game was over, however, the Goldies made their improbable climb.
    They levelled at 101-all, before Vincent Favis tapped in a loose ball for the marginal basket with three seconds left. The incredible comeback was completed and suddenly, the Goldies were legitimate contenders. Especially with the surprise loss of back-to-back champion La Salle to resurgent FEU, 82-80, also Saturday. With La Salle's downfall, UST remained the only unbeaten squad. FEU, the early pick to battle La Salle for the title, is tied with its victim at 3-1.
    UP and Ateneo, both hammered by low average ceiling, were at 2-2, while Adamson, also highly-rated was at 1-3 in company with UE, as usual, NU languishes at the cellar with a 0-4 card.

    55th UAAP Season

    UST on a roll
    August 1992

    Everything's coming up roses for host University of Santo Tomas.
    Playing intensely throughout, UST demolished Ateneo, 77-55, last Sunday and joined three other teams for the lead in the 55th UAAP varsity basketball tournament at the Loyola Center.
    The victory put UST in the company of defending champion Far Eastern University, De La Salle and Admason University with 4-1 records. FEU halted Admason's winning streak Saturday with a 66-62 victory while De La Salle routed University of the Philippines, 83-62. Ateneo is 2-3 followed by UP and National University with similar 1-4 slates. University of the East is winless after five outings.
    UST got the big points from Rey Evangelista and Dennis Espino, who complimented each other in dominating the boards, while Generoso Tengco and Rudolf Belmonte took charge on outside shots. Evangelista lead the Tigers with 25 points on top of 13 rebounds. Tengco and Espino added 12 and 11, respectively.
    From a comfortable 43-28 spread at the half, UST hiked its lead to 76-43 on the combined efforts of Patrick Fran, Tengco and Espino en route to its third straight win. While UST had an easy win, FEU had to struggle past Adamson, which played minus Marlou Aquino.
    The 6-9 Aquino came in street clothes and watched his team succumb to its first defeat. He claimed thieves took his uniform while drying on the clothesline in his Makati residence.
    But Aquino's loss was hardly felt by the Falcons, who gallantly fought the Tamaraws from the start before they lost steam in the final five minutes. Gerardo Hipolito, Jonathan De Guzman and the 7-0 Edward Joseph Feihl broke a 49-all deadlock for a 60-56 Adamson lead. But momentum shifted to FEU in the return play when Henrico Gascon scored a jumper that started the Tamaraws' assault. Johnny Abarrientos split charities off Segundo dela Cruz made it 65-60 but Adamson cut the lead, 62-65, on Arthur Dabao's jumper with 49 seconds remaining.
    De La Salle, as expected, leaned on the game-long brilliance of Zandro Limpot, Jonas Mariano and Dwight Lago in handling UP its fourth loss. Limpot had 21 while Mariano and Lago added 12 each as the Green Archers smoothly coasted to victory.
    In womens basketball, UST defeated Adamson, 72-62, to pace with four straight wins. The loss was Adamson's first after three consecutive triumphs to share second place with FEU, 51-44 winner over De La Salle. UP trounced UE, 60-49, for its second win in four games while UE fell to 0-4.

    Raging Tamaraws
    August 1992

    "Raging" aptly describes the Far Eastern University Tamaraws. Coming off a 90-75 demolition of the UE Warriors last week, FEU will try to fortify its hold of the solo lead when hostilities of the 55th UAAP basketball tournament resume on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.
    After eight games, the Tamaraws were on top at 7-1, De La Salle, Adamson and host UST were in a three-way tie for second place with six wins each.
    De La Salle ran over UP, 86-76, Adamson outplayed Ateneo, 77-70, and UST clobbered NU, 107-64, over the weekend. Having won over the Blue Eagles, 70-64 in the first round eliminations, the Green Archers stand a good chance of moving up the standings. Ateneo and UP dropped into a tie for fifth spot with 3-5 followed by NU with 1-7. UE sank further in the cellar with no win to show in eight starts.
    The Tamaraws banked on an awesome transition play in the second half to insure their victory over the slumping Red Warriors, a 15-2 FEU rally, punctuated by Johnny Abarrientos, sealed the contest.
    Rommel Sanson and Ernesto Quidilla anchored UE's final rally as the red warriors managed to cut the lead to 67-78, 5:03 remaining, but Henrico Gascon and Abarrientos had a basket each for an 82-67 spread.
    Abarrientos topscored for FEU with 18 points, Gascon made 17, Nestor Echano added 16, Arnold Padaong had 14 and Angelo David contributed 10.

    1987 UAAP Finals

    By: Buddy Macaspac

    The Blue Eagles have landed! After having their wings clipped and their flight grounded for nine long years, the once proud and confident Ateneo Blue Eagles finally snared their first-ever UAAP senior basketball crown with a gripping come-from-behind 94-92 win over multi-titled University of the East at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    It took the mutt and jeff combination of Eric and Gilbert Reyes to finally lead the Ateneans to their Promise land. The explosive duo combined to spark a fiery 22-2 assault that finally knotted the score at 85-all after Ateneo trailed three-fourths of the way. Earlier, the Warriors, lined up against the wall with the burden of having to win twice over the Blue Eagles to snatch an unprecedented 18th league championship, spewed fire and sent smoke signals to Ateneo's title drive by taking a huge 83-63 advantage.
    It took the fired-up Ateneans only five minutes to overhaul the seemingly imposing spread and seize control of the match. But it was the Warriors' folly which finally did them in. Slotman Jerry Codinera, irked at his inability to get past Ateneo's triple towers; Reyes, Alejandro Araneta and Danny Francisco, lost his composure and was meted a deliberate foul which gave the opposing team the lead, 87-86, and another 30 seconds on the shot clock. Comebacking UE coach Roel Nadurata was slapped a technical foul for disputing a call made by referee Nic Penaloza. The shorter Reyes made good the gift shot to give the Blue Eagles a four-point cushion, 90-86, with a little over two and a half minutes left to play.
    And when it ws finally over, approximately 6,000 wildly cheering Ateneo students and alumni, led by Senator Raul Manglapus, spilled the court like a huge wave and thanked the victorious cagers for the championship that took a long time coming, "Ibinigay namin ang lahat sa huli, hindi ko na inaasahang mananalo pa kami," beamed an ecstatic Ateneo rookie coach Cris Calilan, still unbelieving at their storybook comeback.
    Ateneo, rich with a history of cage excellence, is no stranger to victory, the Blue Eagles captured a still unsurpassed 16 championships in the older and glamorous though less competitive NCAA since 1924 until their dramatic pullout in 1978 as a result of uncurbed student violence during the games.
    This time, the names that make every Atenean heart swell with pride again are Eric Reyes, Gilbert Reyes, Joseph kenneth Nieto, Nonoy Chuatico, Jaime Gayoso, Joseph Canlas, Alejandro Araneta, Daniel Francisco, Basa, Racela and Jeongco. This batch gave the host school 13 straight wins after an opening day loss to dethroned champion University of the Philippines on the way to a first place finish at the end of the double round eliminations.
    True, they dropped another game against University of Santo Tomas. But that has been erased after Glowing Goldie shooting forward Federico Oblina was found ineligible to play. The young and talented Oblina tampered with his WNCA result and was thus banned from playing in the league for the gross misconduct. The Goldies, therefore, forfeited their four won games, including that against the Blue Eagles.
    This year, it just was not written that a maroon, red or golden yellow flag will fly high. It is the turn of the Blue hues to reign supreme. For the Blue Eagles and their legions of fans, the wait has certainly been long and anxious. But it was well worth it.

    More Sideline Notes: The other article I had have a different view, it is said Nieto's basket gave Ateneo the lead for good, 88-86 (perhaps the technical slap on Codinera came earlier) The Warriors had one chance to turn the game but Modesto Hojilla missed a desperate three-pointer with 16.3 seconds left. Hojilla emerged the goat when he incurred an intentional foul on Chuatico, who split his shots that enabled Ateneo to disengage from a 92-all tie.
    Eric Reyes then put the icing on Ateneo's win with another split off Codinera.

    Re: University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP)

    Its UE's Robert Jaworski vs. UST's Danilo Florencio in the 1965 UAAP basketball finals. The two great basketball warriors later figured in many unforgettable cage wars in the amateur league (MICAA) and the professional league (PBA) in the 6os and 70s.

    Source: Sunday Times Magazine, November 28, 1965



    "Last minute errors, swift steals decide nerve-wracking contest"

    The best of three games for the 1965 UAAP basketball diadem went to the University of the East, but the hero of the third and decisive match came from the losing team. He was Danilo Florencio, a 19-year old UST forward, whom nobody could stop that night--- except the referees. And when Coach Caloy Loyzagaís prized rookie fouled out in the closing minute after a spectacular 40-point performance, USTís retention bid for crown crumbled under the terrific pressure put on by the mighty UE warriors.

    Although spotty officiating hurt the Goldies more than it did the Warriors--- only one of the UST first stringers survived the game--- UE could not be denied its hard-earned victory. But for Florencioís superb showing, Chief Warrior Robert Jaworski was the outstanding star of the evening, grabbing those rebounds like nobodyís business and scattering 29 precious points, the last two of which came off Florencioís fifth and costly foul and tied the score at 84-all, with 10 seconds to go. At this stage, UST was a badly crippled lot, and Loyzaga had to scrape the bottom of a shallow bench; the reserves he sent in to face a still intact UE first team fell apart with a series of boners which enabled the Warriors to pull two sensational steals and put in four points to clinch the thrill-chocked contest.

    The ending reminded fans of USTís triumph in the first of the three-game championship series last Oct. 31, when Florencio made two lightning interceptions in the last few seconds to give his team a hairline 69-67 victory. The Warriors evened matters in the second game, 72-65, by blanking George Lizares, one of USTís chief gunners. And Florencio was not so hot that time, making only 17 points, most of which came rather too late to check a determined UE crew.

    Ironically, that night Florencio was at his hottest--- the entire UE team practically ganged up on him, to no avail--- UST lost the title and made Florencio the most frustrated hero in the history of UAAP cage competitions.

    UE Grabs 6th Cage Crown
    Sunday, October 11, 1970

    University of the East remained the country's top varsity squad for the sixth straight year last night as the Warriors clobbered the National University Bulldogs, 106-95 for the UAAP basketball title at the Rizal Coliseum.

    The temperamental Johnny Revilla pumped in 27 points and had 12 assists as he sparked a savage third quarter attacked that boosted UE to the throne unbeaten for the second straight year.

    Revilla, who maintained his cool for once despite getting deliberately tripped twice, combined with Rudulf Kutch, Rodolfo Soriano and Reynaldo Franco for a 20-4 outburst that gave UE a 20 point bubble at 79-59 going into the last quarter.

    The splurge left NU gagged for good and all that they could do was whittle the lead at gun-time.

    "Hindi sya puedeng magwala basta nasa akin siya", (he has to control his temper when he plays for me), said Virgilo (Baby) Dalupan of Revilla after the match.

    Indeed Revilla was a wonderful sight in his "keep cool" attitude. When he was not feeding or shooting, the RP youth player was hauling rebounds with authority.

    UE's 46-28 edge in rebounds was enough factor for an early breakaway but its 26 errors stifled the spurt time and again.

    The Bulldogs, fighting in their first championship in 16 years, took adavantage of these UE lapses to cling on to the Warriors' back at the half, 42-44.

    Earlier, the NU Bullpups move to within a victory of claiming the high school title by nowing out the Adamson Baby Falcons 54-52, in their playoff tussle.

    The undergoal stab by Bullpup eynaldo Gloria in the last 20 seconds of play insured the victory and gave NU right to shoot for the title against the University of Sto. Tomas Nuggets on Wednesday.

    The UAAP officials beat the Scribes, 86-75 int he day's opener.

    Nice, hope there's more of the 70s Era, so its UE and NU who played for the UAAP Finals in 1970.

    UAAP Update
    Falcons flying higher than Eagles
    By: Jun Santos
    August 1989

    The Falcons are flying high while the Blue Eagles appear to be slowly getting zoomed into extinction in the UAAP. Adamson University upset pre-tournament favorite Far Eastern University in overtime last Sunday, 112-110, while University of the East demolished Ateneo de Manila University, 107-90.
    The Falcons, this year's darkhorses, buckled down to work early with Julius Santos and Edelino Cabanilla heading the onslaught, Adamson went ahead by as much as 50-31 before settling for a 52-37 spread at halftime.
    Rookie point guard Johnny Abarrientos orchestrated FEU's plays in the second half and with big guys like Victor Pablo and Edgardo Postanes scoring inside, the Tamaraws slowly chewed on the lead, with FEU down, 89-92, Alejandro De Guzman unloaded a three-point bomb that tied the count at 92-all with 27 seconds left. Adamson had a chance to take the ballgame in regulation time, but the Falcons muffed three tries at the basket to forge an extra period.
    It was close throughout the overtime with neither team enjoying a lead of more than three points. Jethro Doromal played the hero's role for Adamson when he swished the cords from deep right with four seconds left on their shot clock, 10 left in the game clock. That proved to be the marginal shot.
    "We played them man-zone in defense", said Adamson University coach Angel Ascue.
    Defending Champion Ateneo, which lost 92-102 to FEU last time out, relied on its transition game to post an early 31-19 lead. But UE quickly got its bearings back and knotted the score at 36-36. From a slim 57-54 lead at the interval, the Warriors went full blast, they controlled both boards, ran the breaks perfectly and put up a stonewall defense to erect a big 89-68 lead and never look back.
    "I told the boys not to treat Gilbert Reyes as a special player", said UE coach Roehl Nadurata. Without big men like (Alex) Araneta and (Danny) Francisco, Reyes is easy to stop.
    De La Salle University crushed National University, 94-65, to remain on top of the eight-team field with an immaculate 4-0 record. Adamson, UE and FEU keep themselves company a game behind the Green Archers with identical 3-1 cards. Ateneo, meanwhile, dropped to 2-2.
    University of the Philippines finally barged into the win column, demolishing University of Santo Tomas, 123-81, behind the 37-point performance of Jonas Jaime Mendoza, the highest output so far in the league. The Maroons now have a 1-3 card while UST and NU occupy the cellar with 0-4 slates.
