    Basketball Classics 1960s Era

    Feati raps SSC, Wins UCAA title

    November 22, 1960 - Feati University routed San Sebastian College, 84-56, to retain the UCAA senior basketball crown at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    It was a one-sided, no contest match as coach Lauro Mumar's charges outclassed the SSC quintet in all departments from beginning to end.
    The hi-flyers sewed up the ballgame as early as the first half when they filed up a 26-point cushion at lemontime, 46-20. The defending champions enjoyed their biggest margin in the fifth minute of the second half when they strung up 10 points in a row for a 58-23 spread.
    Red-hot Florentino Tolentino and Renato Libunao sparked SSC rally midway in the final half but Alberto Capito, Valentino Borromeo and Virgilio Gutierrez doused it to keep Feati out of trouble.
    Capito and Guitierrez, a pair of scrappy forwards, led Feati in scoring by chalking up 18 points apiece while Borromeo canned in 17 pts.
    In the junior division, Lyceum captured the title by whipping Araneta, 64-53.

    MLQU rips SSC Cagers, 96-84

    Manila, December 6, 1961 - Manuel L. Quezon University routed San Sebestian College, 96-84, for its sixth straight victory in the UCAA basketball series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Game was the Python's final outing in the one round loop but a protest lodged against them by the University of Manila Hawks prevented MLQU from hauling the title. the Hawks protested MLQU's fielding of 13 players in their meeting two weeks ago. If the protest is upheld. the Pythons will forfeit one of their victories and faced defending champion Feati University in the playoff in the event the Hi-Flyers win their final assignment.

    Manila, July 17, 1960 Pre-season favorites Far Eastern University and University of the East rocketed off to an early lead with impressive victories in the opening of the UAAP cage series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The tamaraws leaned on Engracio Arazas and Romeo Diaz to post a 41-24 lead in the first half to smother the Manila Central University Tigers with an 82-67 rout in the first game.
    The Warriors rallied from a two point, 37-39, deficit at halftime to tame the National University Bulldogs, 79-66, Jose Sison paced the warriors with 21 points.
    Defending champion University of Santo Tomas was ahead over the University of the Philippines, 90-88 when the game was called off, a minute and 36 seconds of play in the second overtime. Both teams were deadlock at 75-all in the regulation play and 83-all in the first overtime.
    The UAAP board decided to discontinue the game when rowdy fans started throwing paper balls and bottles on the floor. It happened when referee Conrado Garcia called a blocking foul on one of the parrots who tried to stop UST hatchetman Rosendo Libunao from scoring.

    Warriors outshoot Tamaraws

    September 17, 1961 University of the East subdued Far Eastern University, 78-74 in the second round of the UAAP basketball series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    But the crowd of 9,000 got an unexpected show after the final buzzer when cagers from both teams engaged in an impromptu brawl on the floor.
    The fight was triggered off by a last-second scuffle for the ball between Tamaraw Romeo Diaz and Warrior Carlos Quitzon. Quitzon had the ball and was being harassed by Diaz when the gun barked and hell broke loose.
    Searing blast by lanky Jimmy Mariano and clutch baskets by Jose Sison and Wenceslao Olaguera at the homestretch saved the Warriors after they were behind by six points. Mariano scored twice on a twisting shot to regain the lead for UE, 63-60, with five minutes left in the game.
    Is this the actor? I seem to recall reading somewhere that one of the Diaz actors played for FEU. I know Joko played for FEU juniors in the early 90s.

    Yes, the Actor Romy Diaz himself, who plays kontrabida in Philippine Cinema, from what I gathered too, he and his brother paquito, naglaro daw sa FPJ All stars some years back and it was known that he used to play for FEU in the 60s bago siya maging full time movie star.

    The MICAA

    Painters clobber Admirals
    August 10, 1963

    Yco regained the MICAA basketball crown with a smashing 81-69 victory over arch-rival Ysmael Steel before 10,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Propelled by Roberto Yburan's 22-point output, the Painters roared to a big 44-20 halftime advantage and coasted in the second half to reclaim the title they last won in 1960.
    Three Painter aided Yburan by canning in double figures. Elais Tolentino fired 16 points, Freddie Webb added 11 and Orlando Castelo with 10 markers. Engracio Arazas topscored for the losing team with 22 while Narciso Bernardo and Eddie Pacheco had 14 points each.
    The lopsided victory was the ninth straight win for the Painters and avenged their 72-74 loss to the Admirals in the last senior cage tournament. It also gave them a berth in the elimination series with the Admirals to determined the Philippine representative to the Australian international invitational tourney set late this month.
    Other teams included are BAA champion Fil-Hispano and Crispa, which earlier subdued Yutivo, 85-76, to finish third.

    1963 UAAP Season

    Protest Holds UST Victory
    October 20, 1963

    University of the East denied University of Sto. Tomas' claim to the UAAP basketball crown with a protest after the Glowing Goldies edged the Warriors again, 57-56, in the second game of their best-of-three championship series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    UE professor Jesus Espiritu questioned the eligibility of UST player, Tomas Pacheco, who allegedly played for Botica Boie in the National Seniors in March.
    Pacheco played in the first game of the championship series which UST won by three, 67-64. If the protest is upheld, a knock-out match will determine this year's champion.
    Renato Reyes, a member of the national team to the Asian Basketball Confederation (ABC) led the Goldies with 19 points in the second half.
    The Warriors led by Jaime Mariano, Hector Bulaong and Norman de Vera combined to close the gap at 49-48 late in the game, but Reyes collaborated with Howard Teck, Bibiano Martinez and Romeo Ramos to pull UST out of trouble 57-52. Bulaong scored the last 4 points including a buzzer-beater to close the final tally at 57-56.

    Bullpups jr. champs
    October 27, 1963

    National University captured the UAAP junior basketball crown by rolling back University of the East, 48-44, in their playoff at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Bullpups Vidal Ogao, Antonio Suing and Ramon Chua engineered NU's blazing rally in the last five minutes of play to wiped out the Pages' 38-33 lead in the third quarter.
    After the Bullpups had tied the count at 42-all, the trio started NU's breakaway. Chua fueled Manuel Conejero before Ogao slammed the door on UE with a fastbreak, 48-42, with 45 seconds left. Gerardo Manlapao broke UE's scoreless spell with a useless layup in the last 10 seconds.

    The MICAA / National Open

    The Manila Industrial and Commercial Athletic Asssociation (MICAA) is a league that existed from 1938 to 1981. It was a basketball league for amateur players. It is the first legitimate basketball league in the Philippines until 10 of its teams broke away and formed the first professional league in Asia, the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) in 1975.

    Ysmael Steel wins MICAA Crown

    Manila, May 15, 1962 -

    The Ysmael Steel Admirals behind a steady defense all throughout the game took a precious 69-62 victory over the YCO Painters, to retain the MICAA basketball crown at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The game played before 10,000 fans started with the Painters at their best with a line up of Carlos Loyzaga, Edgardo Ocampo, Jose Laganson, Carlos Badion and Joe Braun.
    The Painters took an early 9-6 lead but a strong defense, consistent outside shooting and heads up play in the clutch gave the Admirals their third MICAA championship.
    The heroes for the champs were Kurt Bachmann, Manuel Jocson, Eduardo Pacheco, Eddie Cruz, Narciso Bernardo and coach Enrique Crame.
    Leading scorers were Bernardo and Pacheco with 14 points apiece. Cruz and Jocson added 13 and 12 points respectively.

    An article on the beginning of Crispa basketball team, a storied franchise with so much history. Here applying for the MICAA. Year was not readable.

    FLORO applies to MICAA

    HCGBA to sponsor trip of BAA Champs Next month

    Danny Floro's Crispa Redmanizers will display their wares abroad for the first time since their formal organization a few years ago if negotiations for their exhibition tour of Hong Kong next month push through.
    The Redmanizers, two-time Businessman's Athletic Association champions have been invited to play in the Crown Colony sometime next month by the Hong Kong Chinese General Basketball Association.
    Floro had already wired the association of his approval of the invitation. He is still waiting for another reply from Hong kong before he will seek the PAAF's sanction of the trip.
    Crispa which is powered by Olympian Carlos (Boom Boom) Badion, had the distinction of offering the Taylor U Trojans the stiffest battle in their recent Far East tour.
    The Redmanizers lost, 61-64, after leading the Towering Venture for Victory dribblers by nine points in the last eight minutes of the game.
    Meantime, Floro submitted to Leanardo (Skip) Guinto of the MICAA, Crispa's application for membership in the inter-commercial association the other day.
    If its membership is approved, Crispa is going to put up teams for all events in the MICAA. As of now, Crispa has basketball, football and volleyball squads.
    Olympian Mariano Tolentino and hustler Arturo Calara will likely reinforce the Redmanizers if their trip to Hong Kong goes through. The duo may also become regular members of Crispa in the event it is accepted into the MICAA fold.

    Is it true that Ysmael Steel started the tradition of shaving their heads after a particularly heartbreaking loss to their perennial tormentors YCO Painters?

    Re: The MICAA

    jkad...yes, the Ysmael Steel players to the ballboy shaved their heads after losing to the Yco painters. That's how intense the rivalry is for the two teams.
