    Crispa routs SMB five, 94-74
    October 30, 1960

    The renovated Crispa Redmanizers finally found their bearings in the phase B of the second round of the MICAA basketball series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Crispa, winless in phase A, rolled back San Miguel Brewery, 94-74. The Redmanizers had the ballgame all sewed up as early in the first eight minutes of play as they posted a 10-point lead over the Greenshirts, 24-14.
    Crispa's triggermen; Leonardo del Pilar, Constancio Ortiz and Roberto Yburan, finally found the range of the basket. Yburan paced the Redmanizers by scoring 25 points. Lanky Roehl Nadurata controlled the boards for Crispa.

    Crispa trips SMB, 67-64, to advance
    November 13, 1960

    Crispa moved to the championship round of the MICAA basketball series by squeezing out a hair-thin 67-64 victory over San Miguel Brewery at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Crispa trailed most of the way, lagging behind by three points, 37-34, at lemontime. But the Redmanizers rallied in the last five minutes of play. The rally was ignited by forward Constancio Ortiz, who scored seven points in a row to give Crispa a three-point cushion, 64-61.
    The fold up began when Redmanizers Roberto Yburan, Dominador Servillano, Bienvenido Papa, Leonardo del Pilar and Ortiz were on the floor. The five put Crispa on the road to recovery. Working behind a man-zone defense, the Greenshirts held Crispa aces Yburan, Roehl Nadurata and Ortiz in tow in the first half.

    August 19, 1960

    Adamson University, Union High and the Philippine Chinese High School posted victories in the opening games of the Manila Athletic Association of Secondary Schools (MAASS) cage series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The defending champion Adamson Baby Falcons, powered by skipper George Gallent and Teodoro Martinez, trimmed the American School Indians, 49-43, in the first game.
    Union High clobbered Rizal Central College, 69-55, in the second match while PCHS used its height to advantage in the third game, beating Polytechnic, 53-42.

    Union takes MAASS Crown
    October 7, 1960

    Union High rallied in the last four minutes of play to dethrone Adamson High, 53-48, in the 1960 MAASS basketball series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Panthers, paced by steady play of Edgardo Argana and skipper Leonardo Cabardo, broke loose in the last minutes of the fourth quarter to win the tight tussle. The Panthers led at halftime, 25-23.
    The score was deadlocked at 39-all with five minutes left in the ballgame. But Argana scored on a free throw and Cabardo tallied from the outside, to give the lead to Union High. The two scored once more on jumpshots against a lone marker by Jose Zarzuela, Jr. of Adamson to put the Panthers with a comfortable 46-41 margin.

    October 18, 1961

    Union High nosed out Adamson, 48-43, in a torrid battle to retain the Manila Athletic Association of Secondary Schools (MAASS) cage title at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

    La Salle trims Letran in a protest match

    August 18, 1960 - La Salle posted the first victory in the second round of the NCAA junior cage series by thumping the Letran Squires, 63-60, at the Letran gym.
    The game was protested by Letran coach Sergio Villanueva, questioning a technical foul called by referee Antonio Escalabanan on Robert Chang for touching the ball after his team made a basket. Escalabanan said a new NCAA rule prohibits players of the team scoring a basket from touching the ball before the throw-in.
    The Greenies, utilizing an air-tight zone defense, forced the Squires to take their shots from the outside. Paced by Jose Luis Arrastia, La Salle led all quarters and were never in danger except for sporadic rallies by Letran in the last 10 minutes of play.
    La Salle coach Dionisio Calvo started off with Casimiro Baradiwan, Jose Mari Velez, Eugenio Muniosguren, Jr., Jose Labayen and Peter Ruebenfeldt against Villanueva's Aldanese, Gaspar Arcilla, Richard Bucoy, Angel Manzano and Chang.

    Letran, SBC, JRC share NCAA lead

    August 21, 1960 - Letran, San Beda College and Jose Rizal College shared the lead in the second round of the NCAA senior cage tournament by beating their respective rivals before 3,000 fans at the Araneta Coliseum.
    The Knights downed the La Salle Green Archers, 67-64, in the opening tussle while the defending champion Red Lions topped the Mapua Tech Cardinals, 72-66, in the second game. The Heavy Bombers on the other hand, unfeathered the Ateneo Blue Eagles, 82-72, in the nightcap.
    JRC, top favorite to win this year's championship, notched its sixth straight victory this season after shaking off late rallies by the Blue Eagles. The Heavy Bombers doused the threat with the jumpshots of rookie Lucio Lim, the taps of elongated Elias Tolentino and the heads-up play of Thelmo Santos.

    Cardinals stop Bombers, 79-77

    August 28, 1960 - Mapua Institute of Technology won over first round winner Jose Rizal College, 79-77, in the NCAA basketball series at the Araneta Coliseum.
    A lean crowd of 3,000 fans thrilled to the evenly-contested game that was extended to two overtime, 66-all at the regulation period and 70-all in the second extension. Both squads were also deadlock 19 times.
    Mapua's swelling man-to-man defense that half-paralyzed JRC's post plays, skipper Leonardo del Pilar's return-to-form performance, heads-up plays of diminutive Manuel Sordan and timely baskets and slip-aways by Romeo Yanga, Rodolfo Canete and Adolfo Bonita, all contributed to spell victory for the Cardinals.
    The Mapua-JRC tussle also saw for the first time in the current NCAA circuit a cager knocked out cold unintentionally by another player. Bienvenido Papa, the 6'1" center of JRC, was knocked out flat on his back at exactly 63 seconds left in the second overtime. Papa received a blow from Fernando Pacia who was coming down after a jumpshot.

    San Beda Red Lions Smother Letran five, 90-67

    September 4, 1960 - Defending champion San Beda College grabbed the top spot in the second round of the NCAA senior cage series by smothering Letran, 90-67, at the Araneta Coliseum.
    It was the third straight victory by the Red Lions in the second round. Playing without regular center William Jance, the Knights failed to stop the keyhole and under-the-basket sorties of the Bedans who, paced by lanky Alberto Reynoso, Adel Feliciano, and rookie Eladio Gadin, pulled away from a tight first half battle.
    The Red Lions also dominated the game by scoring from quartercourt, Nicolas Carranceja and Rudolfo de los Santos chalked up 14 points apiece with quartercourt shots that gave San Beda a comfortable cushion throughout the tussle.
    In the opening match, Jose Rizal College, the first round champion, whipped La Salle, 67-59. Mapua Tech nipped Ateneo, 75-74, in the hotly contested second game.

    UST Goldies rip UE, 87-82
    July 23, 1961

    University of Santo Tomas overpowered defending champion University of the East, 87-82, in a bristling duel in th eongoing UAAP basketball tournament before 10,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Goldies broke up the contest after a 74-all deadlock with four minutes left in the regulation play on superior under-the-basket gunnery. Playmakers Romeo Ramos and Valentino Rosabal darted through UE's tight man-to-man defense and slipped in the winning markers. Rosabal faked two UE guards to push UST ahead, 76-74. Warrior Wenceslao Olaguera made an error in the return play and Rosabal scored again from under to give his team a four-point cushion.
    Rizaldo Pabillore, who carried the fight almost single-handedly for the Warriors, kept UE within distance when he sank two charities but Ramos broke loose in turn and baited a foul to regain a four-point spread for UST. The triumph installed the Goldies up front in the league with two victories in as many outings together with Far Eastern University, which outclassed Manila Central University, 83-71, in the opening game.

    UE blasts NU, 73-69, stays ahead of pack
    August 27, 1961

    The University of the East Red Warriors caged the National University Bulldogs, 73-69, to keep the lead in the UAAP basketball series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The triumph was the sixth in seven starts for the defending champion UE while the bulldogs, despite the setback, stayed in third place with three wins and four losses.
    University of Santo Tomas and Far Eastern University shared second spot in the standings by winning their respective assignments in the other games. The Goldies shellacked Manila Central University, 77-62, and the Tamaraws crushed University of the Philippines, 86-65. Both teams have identical 5-2 slates.

    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.

    Light Bombers triumph
    July 13, 1960

    Defending champion Jose Rizal College dumped San Beda College, 60-49, in the NCAA junior encounter at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Paced by lanky Edgardo Gomez, the Light Bombers team captain, JRC dominated the backboard and had the Red Cubs catching the air. The Light Bombers scored many of their shots from follow-ups and tip-ins of their own misses. Utilizing a man-to-man defense, the JRC quintet held the Red Cubs at bay and forced them to take shots from quartercourt.

    Knights outsmart San Beda
    July 24, 1960

    Letran, Ateneo and Jose Rizal College lived up to expectations in the NCAA triple bill at the Araneta Coliseum.
    The Knights squeaked past defending champion San Beda, 61-60, while the Blue Eagles outclawed the Mapua Tech Cardinals, 63-56. The Heavy Bombers routed the Green Archers of La Salle, 78-64.
    The Victories placed Letran, Ateneo and JRC on equal footing for first place in the first round standings of the league with 3-1 slates. Letran coach Bibiano Ouano opened up with his first team of Rodolfo Gayatin, Clemente Bargas, Freddie Webb, Basilio Go and William Jance against coach Arturo Rius' second stringers Ramon Ballesca, Reynaldo Roxas, Edgar Arceo, Tito Acuna and George Zubiri.
    The Knights jumped to an early lead, 9-4, and held the Red Lions at bay with a man-to-man. San Beda caught up with Letran and even took the advantage late in the first half. But the Knights regained the upperhand, 36-29, with the unstoppable Go and Jance.

    JRC Light Bombers rap SBC Red Cubs

    September 13, 1960 - Defending champion Jose Rizal College crushed San Beda College, 70-49, in the NCAA junior basketball encounter at the San Beda gym.
    The Light Bombers' victory pulled them to a share of the third spot in the second round standings with Letran and Ateneo, each has two wins and two losses. The Light Bombers led all the way and were never in danger except in the second quarter when the spirited Red Cubs, paced by Rodolfo Francisco, Wilfredo Rivera and Dominador Cruz, exploded with deadly outside snipings to narrow the gap, 25-23, at halftime.
    Deadeye and lanky skipper Edgardo Gomez of JRC powered his team out of trouble by stringing up five field goals at the start of the second half. Assisted by teammates Leonardo de los Santos and Edgardo Santos, Gomez placed the Lighties on a comfortable 48-31 cushion at the end of the third quarter.

    Lions rip Eagles, 92-82

    September 18, 1960 - San Beda College won over Ateneo, 92-82, in the second round of the NCAA loop before 6,000 fans at the Araneta Coliseum.
    The victory clinched the second round flag for the defending champion and a slot in the title round with the first round winners Jose Rizal College and Letran. The Blue Eagles enjoyed a comfortable 48-42 spread at lemontime and were ahead, 54-48, with 16 minutes to play but the Red Lions caught up in the last six minutes when Ateneo skipper Cristino Arroyo fouled out on a charging drive against Adel Feliciano.
    With Arroyo gone, the Blue Eagles failed to keep up with the heated tempo of the Red Lions. Nicolas Carranceja, a veteran of the Asian Basketball Confederation, lived up to the honor he earned last year as the loop's MVP.

    JRC beats SBC, 64-62, in OT, nears NCAA title

    September 25, 1960 - Jose Rizal College defied tradition as it nosed out San Beda College, 64-62, in an overtime battle in the NCAA championship round at the Araneta Coliseum.
    The Heavy Bombers ripped the adage that first-round champions never beat the second-round champions in the title round of the loop with a devastating attack in a five-minute overtime after the score was tied at 54-all at the end of the regulation period.
    Jumpshots by Franklin Yang, who sent the game into an extra period for JRC, put the heavies just one game away from their objective for the last 11 years - the NCAA championship. JRC started off with a two-one-two zone, but it didnt click. Coach Francisco Calilan tried the man-zone defense and it worked as the Heavies pulled ahead, 17-9.

    Letran Wins NCAA Title

    October 2, 1960 - Letran clinched the NCAA senior cage crown by edging out Jose Rizal College, 75-73, in a thrill-packed match witnessed by 11,000 fans at the Araneta Coliseum. The title was the first for the Knights since 1950.
    Rookie Basilio Go, a 20-year-old commerce freshman, wrapped up the contest with a jumpshot from the top of the charity circle with about five seconds left in the regulation period.
    Letran, which was in the cellar last year, also became the only team in the loop's history to win the championship without clinching a round. Coach Bibiano Oano's three sophomores; Clemente Bargas, William Jance and Augusto Cepeda, and rookies Freddie Webb, Go, Ramoncito Fernandez and Rodolfo Gayatin, fashioned the magnificent triumph.
    It was the defensive plays by Oano that kept the Heavy Bombers on the trail. The Knight's man-to-man defense forced a fast tempo on the set-playing, slow-moving Bombers. Webb, Bargas, Go and Jance supplied the scoring punch and Gayatin was a strongman in Letran's backline.

    Tamaraws beat Crispa, 101-99
    February 15, 1960

    Far Eastern University chopped the Crispa Redmanizers, 101-99, in the nightcap of the National Open basketball championship at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Young Arturo Valenzona, crew-cut rookie of the Tamaraws and a newcomer at bigtime competition, dealt the winning blows as he sank two foul throws on an intentional foul by Crispa guard Antonio Manikan with 30 seconds to play. The two markers capped a magnificent rally by the Tamaraws who came from behind a six-point, 50-44, deficit at halftime.
    Earlier, Yco, leaning on the outburst of ABC veterans Carlos Badion, Mariano Tolentino, Carlos Loyzaga, Kurt Bachmann, Eddie Lim, Emilio Achacoso and Loreto Carbonell, outclassed Manila Central University, 107-54.

    Crispa gets door
    February 26, 1960

    The Crispa Redmanizers were knocked out of the pennant race in the National Open cage championship at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Far Eastern University wrote the Redmanizers out of the list of contenders with a 94-93 triumph on a foul shot by guard Arturo Valenzona. It was the second straight setback for Crispa in the semifinal round.
    University of the East shaded Philippine Air Lines, 75-73, to dim the Viscounts' title chances. But Pre-tournament favorites; Yco and Ysmael, continued their winning ways. The Painters routed the Armed Forces of the Philippines, 103-59, while the Admirals downed Jose Rizal College, 99-80.

    Re: The MICAA

    Ysmael walks tightrope vs Redmanizers, 76-72
    November 20, 1960

    Ysmael Steel chalked up a hard-earned victory in the championship round of the MICAA by nosing out Crispa, 76-72, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Three errors by the Redmanizers capped by a timely tip-in by Ysmael's Serafin Vida in the last minute of play saved the Admirals from an early upset.
    Ysmael was ahead by two, 73-71, with less than a minute left in the game when Crispa center Roehl Nadurata committed his fifth foul on Vida during a battle for the rebound. Vida muffed his free throw but made up for it seconds later with a neat follow up of a miss by teammate Narciso Bernardo to give Ysmael a four-point lead, 75-71. A charity by Olympian Edgardo Roque sewed up the ballgame for the Ysmael quintet.

    Ysmael Steel nips Yco, 91-87, ties series
    November 27, 1960

    Ysmael Steel came from behind to beat Yco, 91-87, to force a best-of-three series for the MICAA cage crown before 16,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Top performances by Admirals Narciso Bernardo and Nicolas Carranceja, an air-tight defense, deadly shooting in the clutches and a strong bench enabled Ysmael to wipe out a 13-point Yco lead, 18 minutes before regulation period's end and deadlock the score at 77-all for a five-minute extension.
    Bernardo was limited to only five points by Edgardo Ocampo in the first half but broke loose in the final half to pump in 15 of his 24 points to pace the Ysmael rally. He was assisted by Carranceja, who managed to check Yco scorers Roberto Littaua and Loreto Carbonell.

    Redmanizers Score
    January 15, 1962

    Crispa made an auspicious debut in this year's National Open basketball championships by flattening Manila Central University, 106-80, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Redmanizers blew the game wide open in the fifth minute of the second half and placed the outcome of the game as early as 10 minutes before the final buzzer. Olympian Constancio Ortiz led Crispa to triumph by chalking up 28 points.
    In the first game, Botica Boie drugged the National University Bulldogs, 83-77, and Seven-Up bowed to General Textiles, 60-83, in the second tilt.

    Tamaraws clip U-Tex
    January 19, 1962

    Far Eastern University snapped back in the race for honors in the National Open cage championships by surprising Universal Textiles, 85-81, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The speedy Tamaraws, dethroned as the National Intercollegiate champions, pulled the trick with a tight zone defense that forced U-Tex players to shoot from the outside.
    Romeo Diaz spearheaded the Tamaraws in their brilliant performance after they dropped their opening game in the series to the AFP Reds.
