    Yco Painters vs Ysmael Steel

    YCO trips Ysmael in Dream tussle
    March 8, 1964

    Metropolitan Open South Division champion Yco subdued North Division titlist Ysmael Steel, 90-78, in their dream game before 8,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Painters speared 11 unanswered points in the last one minute and 20 seconds of play to prevail over their arch rivals. The breakaway came after the Admirals had charged back to within a point, 78-79, on a blistering rally that saw them bust a big YCO bubble, 75-66. Edgardo Roque, a former Admiral, started YCO's winning drive with two charities off Manuel Jocson. Edgardo Ocampo followed it with another free throw after he was tripped by Eduardo Pacheco. Roque free throw anew, Arturo Valenzona scored on Ocampo's feed and charities off Engracio Arazas, and Ocampo stabbed from under on Freddie Webb's assist for YCO's final points.
    But it was veteran Roberto Yburan who did the most damage for the Painters by flashing good performance offensively and defensively. He led YCO with 24 markers.
    The win was the Painters' second victory over the Admirals this year. Both teams, considered the top squads in the local cagedom, had split their first two encounters in Cebu City last January

    Re: The MICAA / National Open

    YCO Painters MICAA Kings
    December 18, 1960

    Yco patched up basketball's biggest feud by overwhelming Ysmael Steel, 70-55, to win the much-ballyhooed MICAA cage championship before 30,000 fans at the Araneta Coliseum.
    The Painters wrapped up the championship - their first since 1957, unofficially in the first half when the Admirals applied a full-court press. Yco, who lost the title to Ysmael in 1958, wrought havoc on the full-court press by playing slow-break to secure a 37-31 halftime spread and then by attacking, with wild calvary-like charges, in the final half to put Ysmael behind by as many as 15 points in the homestretch.
    All Yco players did their share in winning the crown. Carlos Badion was hot all night scoring 19 points to pace the Yco attack. Playing coach Carlos Loyzaga mapped out the set plays that demolished Ysmael's full-court press. Mariano Tolentino and Kurt Bachmann helped control the boards while Edgardo Ocampo limited Ysmael hotshot Narciso Bernardo to just 11 points.
    Loreto Carbonell put Yco in the thick of the fight in theopening minutes of play with accurate long toms from quartercourt. And Yco's pair of youngsters; Roberto Littaua and rookie Jose Laganson, were responsible for nailing Ysmael's setback with splurges in the second half.

    Ysmael Steel flays Yco, 100-89, to win National Open tilt
    January 29, 1961

    Ysmael Steel demolished Yco, 100-89, in the championship of the National Open basketball series before 10,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The victory ended the seven-year reign of Yco in the league and was also the first time a local team posted a total of 100 points against the highly-touted Painters in the crucial match.
    Some Yco fans protested, saying the Admirals won because of the one-sided officiating by referee Skip Agcaoili in the crucial stage of the ballgame. It happened when the Painters cut Ysmael's lead to just three, 66-69, with eight minutes left in the regulation period. Agcaoili awarded three free throws to center Cristobal Ramas, two for the alleged foul by Kurt Bachmann who tried to block Ramas from making a lay-up shot, and the other one for a technical called against Carlos Badion for protesting the call.
    Six admirals scored in double figures. They were Marquez with 22, Geronimo Cruz who had 15, Cesar Jota with 13, and Narciso Bernardo, Ramas and Edgardo Roque who canned in 12 points apiece.
    Loreto Carbonell led the Painters with 24 points, Bachmann and Carlos Loyzaga scored 18 and 17, respectively, while Badion was limited to only eight points.

    Re: University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP)

    Tams, Warriors score impressive victories
    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.

    FEU Tams overwhelm UST, 77-67
    August 21, 1960

    Far Eastern University got off to a brilliant start in the second round of the UAAP basketball championship by walloping defending champion University of Santo Tomas, 77-67, before 8,000 spectators at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Powered by Romeo Diaz, Engracio Arazas, Oscar Lopez, Arturo Valenzona and Pelagio Simon, who was responsible for checking UST hotshot Rosendo Libunao as well as Ramon Cotia, FEU applied air-tight defense to force the Goldies to shoot from long range.
    The Tamaraws limited Libunao to only two points while Valentin Rosabal, who averaged at least 10 points per game for UST, was blanked.

    Tamaraws Capture Pennant
    September 9, 1960

    Far Eastern University tucked in the first round pennant of the UAAP senior basketball circuit by crushing National University, 91-70, at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The victory qualified the Tamaraws in a championship round of four.
    The Tamaraws came from behind an eight-point lead piled up by the Bulldogs in the early minutes of the first half. Pelagio Simon, Rodencio Paunan and Rohimust Santos powered FEU to catch up and even take a six-point advantage at halftime, 35-29.
    Dead-eye Engracio Arazas kept the lead for FEU with his long toms from quartercourt in the second half action. The Bulldogs were left behind as their shooting aces, Antigono Peralta, Silvestre Amoroso and Mario Panlilio, failed to find the hoop.
    Outside shooting by rookie Joselito Roa and plucky drives by Romeo Diaz sewed up the ballgame for the Tamaraws.

    Warriors, Tamaraws dispute championship
    September 25, 1960

    University of the East will face Far Eastern University in the championship tussle for this year's UAAP cage crown after both teams defeated their respective rivals at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Red Warriors and the Tamaraws maintain their clean slates in the championship round. UE routed the University of the Philippines, 87-71, in the first game and FEU kicked defending champion University of Santo Tomas out of contention, 91-81, in the nightcap.
    The Tamaraws broke away from a sticky fight put up by the Goldies in the early minutes of play and coasted to an easy victory on the record-breaking performance of Romeo Diaz, as he scored 40 points, 29 of them in the first half. He now holds the record fro the highest individual score in the loop.

    Warriors bag UAAP crown
    October 1, 1960

    University of the East nosed out Far Eastern University, 87-86, to win the UAAP basketball crown before 9,000 fans at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    A lay-up by Ramon Figueroa in the last 15 seconds of play sealed the victory for the Warriors and the four-foot El Oro trophy that went to them permanently for winning their third championship since the trophy was placed at stake. UE copped the championship in 1957 and 1958 but lost the crown to University of Santo Tomas last year.
    A dogged stand and heads-up shooting by sophomore Rizaldo Pabillore set up the Warriors' triumph. The Azcarraga quintet trailed the heavily-favored Tamaraws most of the way but grabbed the reins in the dying minutes of the final half.
    FEU led 81-75 with three minutes to play but UE staged a magnificent comeback to sew up the ball game. The rally started with a time out by coach Virgilio Dalupan. Norman de Vera ignited it with two charities on a foul by Rohimust Santos to narrow the gap. Pabillore kept it burning with two interceptions.

    Crispa upsets Ysmael with a 72-70 triumph
    July 13, 1961

    Crispa fashioned out a stunning upset over Ysmael Steel, 72-70, in the MICAA cage series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    The Redmanizers booby-rapped the National Open basketball champion with a calculated, slow-break that broke up the rhythm and the flow of the fast-stepping Admirals.
    Rome Olympic veteran Narciso Bernardo committed the error after Leonardo Del Pilar returned the lead for Crispa with a jumpshot from the corner. Ysmael lost its chance of winning the game when Bernardo hurried his shot in the next play. Abelardo Ortiz grabbed the ball but was fouled by Bernardo. Ortiz made his free throws.

    Ysmael five rips PAL, 102-79
    August 3, 1961

    Ysmael Steel found the going a little rough but mustered enough long range shooting power to overcome Philippines Airlines, 102-79, in the MICAA cage series at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    PAL, powered by Americans Tine Hardemann and Bud Schaeffer and Nilo Fuentebella, gave the Admirals a stiff scare in the opening minutes of the game. The three wove through Ysmael's loosely-framed man-to-man defense to take a four-point cushion, 18-14.
    The Admirals, who shot from abandon from the outside becuae they dominated the boards, took the lead at halftime, 46-40, with bombs from Cristobal Ramas, Manuel Jocson, Nicolas Carranceja and Eddie Pacheco.

    Ysmael beats SMC in 2nd round opener
    October 20, 1960

    Ysmael Steel used its manpower advantage to the hilt to demolish San Miguel Corporation, 79-58, in the MICAA cage tournament at the Rizal Coliseum.
    Enjoying the services of six national team members and a highly-rated collegiate star, the Admirals broke the game wide open early and finished the contest with plenty to spare for their first win in the second round eliminations. Olympian Narciso Bernardo, Edgardo Roque and Manuel Jocson stood tallest among the Admirals pushing Ysmael to an early 8-0 lead before padding this to 38-23 at halftime.
    Philippine Airlines demolished Yellow Taxi in the other contest, 84-63, also for their first win in second round action.

    UE five retakes diadem
    October 7, 1962

    Underrated University of the East recaptured the UAAP senior cage championship by demolishing University of the Philippines, 70-55, before a crowd of 5,000 at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.
    Coach Virgilio "Baby" Dalupan, the winningest mentor in the circuit with four championships tucked on his belt, hinged on the shooting of Carlos Quitzon, Angelito Flores and Norman de Vera, the excellent rebounding of Godofredo Realubit and Jaime Mariano and heads-up defensive plays by rookie Nathaniel Canson, the speediest dribbler of the league, to post the victory.
