    Condolences to the family of the late Tanny Gonzales. Aside from being a well respected sportsman, Tanny is also a long-time barangay chairman in his home village in Sta. Ana Manila; greatly respected and loved. A great guy all around and he will surely be missed by a lot of people.

    Rest in Peace Tanny!

    Bonnie Tan’s Lyceum chapter comes to a sad end

    by Angelo Falcon on February 3, 2015

    MANILA — After a surprising quarterfinals stint in the D-League, Bread Story’s Cinderella run came to a halt after it fell victim to a vengeful CafeFrance squad. 81-68 in the quarterfinals.

    For head coach Bonnie Tan, there’s always a silver lining to every story, such as being the first rookie team to actually make the playoffs in the tournament.

    “It was a good run, not the ending that we wanted. Dito na nagtatapos ang story ng Bread Story,” said Tan.

    But it wasn’t only Bread Story’s story that will be ending, it also marks the end of Tan’s story with Lyceum, a team he handled for 11 years.

    After announcing his retirement last October from the school, Tan’s last tour of duty with the Pirates is with the same Bread Story squad composed mostly of his Lyceum players. More so than the painstaking loss, it is his separation with the boys and the institution that he handled which affects him the most.

    “Malungkot siyempre. After 11 years, talagang I cannot explain yung feeling,” he said. “Mixed feelings kasi nga last game na namin magsasama, hindi maganda yung pagkatalo, at the same time last game namin.”

    But despite that, he opted to dwell on the positives and assured his players that this is not the last time that they will cross paths.

    “Kanina sa dugout, instead of malungkot, sinabihan ko lang sila na ang basketball iikot lang ng iikot yan. Magkikita naman kami at magsasama pa kami,” he concluded. — Rivals 2015

    New Lyceum coach Topex Robinson starts practice this week

    by Angelo Falcon on February 2, 2015

    MANILA — After months of speculation, it is finally confirmed that coach Topex Robinson will be taking over the coaching duties in Lyceum from longtime head coach Bonnie Tan.

    It was none other than Tan who confirmed the rumors surrounding the former San Sebastian coach and added that Robinson will be starting practice with the team this week.

    “I wish him all the best,” Tan said.

    Under Robinson, the Stags have been a constant Final Four team, missing only the semis last year when they finished with an atrocious 6-12 record.

    But despite that, Tan is confident that Robinson will be successful with the Pirates.

    “Di natin masabi (yung performance) pero sa tingin ko may experience naman siya,” he said. “Tingin ko okay naman si Topex at di niya pababayaan yung team.”

    Tan added he’s pretty hopeful about Lyceum’s chances of being a regular member in the NCAA, as this year marks the end of the school’s probationary status and their membership will now be on the NCAA policy board’s hands.

    “Before I left Lyceum, I’m positive na yung probationary stage which is four years, nameet namin and naaccomplish namin,” he said. “We’re not that high sa standing pero we’re not that low naman. Hopefully nakapagbayad na ng tuition fee yung Lyceum sa NC and sana matanggap sila as regular member next season.”

    “On the basketball part, sa tingin ko nagawa namin yung mga dapat gawin ng probationary team sa NCAA,” he added. – Rivals 2015

    Ang Ateneo talagang ayaw sa magagaling na players.

    All's well that ends well though, at mukhang on his way to being the NCAA MVP si CJ Perez. I hope he takes Lyceum to the Promised Land.

    Four-way race looms for MVP as frontrunner Prince Eze, Perpetual out of playoff picture

    From: Christian Jacinto

    October 3, 2017, 07:11 pm

    THE MVP race for NCAA Season 93 just lost its frontrunner as Prince Eze's University of Perpetual Help team has bowed out from playoff contention.

    With the Altas eliminated from the Final Four race, runaway statistical leader Prince Eze became ineligible from winning the league's top individual plum as NCAA rules dictate that the winner of the MVP should come from teams who made the semifinals.

    The highest award Eze can now get is an inclusion in the Mythical Team despite posting averages of 17.2 rebounds and 2.6 blocks, both league bests, to go with 15.5 points, good for fifth among Season 93's top scorers.

    The Season 93 MVP race is now reduced to a close battle among four players. Mike Nzeusseu and CJ Perez of the unbeaten Lyceum have become strong candidates to take over Eze, considering they were running second and third, respectively, in the race after the first round.

    Nzeusseu is currently averaging 10.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks despite playing limited minutes. But Perez is having a stronger showing in the second round, padding his averages to 18.6 points per game, 6.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals.

    JV Mocon and Rey Nambatac, from rival schools San Beda and Letran, respectively, are also in the MVP debate and could build their case with a strong finish to the season.

    Mocon has been a stable double-double guy for the Red Lions, putting up averages of 12.5 points, 10.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists in leading San Beda's 13-game win run.

    Among the four, Nambatac will have the most to play for with the Knights' Final Four hopes still hanging in the balance. Still the graduating Letran guard is putting up MVP-worthy numbers with 16.6 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.3 dimes a ball game.

    This close race is an interesting sub-story to the league that's slowly reaching its climax with still five teams fighting for two spots in the Final Four.

    For the curious, the last time a non-semifinalist won the NCAA MVP award was back in Season 80 in 2005 when Jay Sagad of College of St. Benilde took the plum.
