    ^ I'd take Austin Manara and Brian Stignette. Randy Susuico is a big and burly 6'4" 235-pound center with limited skills. Manara can do everything Susuico can do PLUS he's a legit 6'6" and 205 pounds with a 36-inch vertical leap and nearly-seven foot arm span. Stignette looks legitimately 6-feet tall and can play up to three positions, although he seems to be a natural pointguard, one of those scoring pointguard types who can advance the ball against pressure and break down defenses with his dribble-penetration.

    Fr Martin Action was typically hot on a warm December day yesterday at the La Consolacion gym in Manila. Unfortunately it was a very bad day for NAASCU teams.

    NCAA newcomer Arellano came back from a listless first half to down NAASCU power STI College 75-61 for their third straight victory. STI played very solid on-ball defense in the first half only to succumb to the dreaded press of Arellano in the second half.

    Miggy Maniego and Mike Silungan led a balanced attack for State University as the Fighting Maroons beat up Informatics 77-57. It was no contest right from the get-go as UP moved the ball way to good for the sluggish Informatics halfcourt defense. A few more transition baskets put the game away for the Maroons. Maniego had 13 points to lead all scorers while Silungan added 11.

    NCAA champion San Sebastian leaned on their two super rookies - Calvin Abueva and Ian Sangalang - to rip Centro Escolar 90-69. It was the second straight blowout victory for the mighty Golden Stags. CEU was never really in this game as the veteran Stags didn't let the Pink Scorpions put up a fight. Abueva had 23 points and nine boards while Sangalang added 22 with 10 rebounds and three blocks.

    Adamson took home their first victory of this tournament as they out-steadied Fatima University 77-66. 6'6" African import Austin Manara pretty much had his way with the much smaller Phoenix frontline to lead the Falcons with 23 points and 11 rebounds.

    Falcons hope to finally soar with Kenyan import

    The Adamson University Falcons, a team known for countless setbacks than victories, is hoping to change its fortunes in this year’s Universities Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) cage wars.

    And Adamson coach Leo Austria is hoping that a mainstay of Kenya’s Under-20 national basketball team will help the Falcons finally take their flight in UAAP Season 73.

    Kenya’s Austin Manyara has just completed his two-year residency and is now ready to suit up against the other squads that are also beefed up by their own foreign players.

    “We’re pretty excited in the coming season," said Adamson coach Leo Austria. “We like our chances now with Austin (Manyara) playing for us."

    Manyara is a versatile 6-foot-6 forward and could be the Falcons’ much-awaited savior in ending more than three decades of frustration.

    “Austin can play three different positions (small and power forward, and center). We believe we have strengthened our frontline with him around. Our objective is to make it to the Final Four, because once you get there, anything can happen," added Austria, who gave up his coaching post with the Welcoat Dragons in the Philippine Basketball League (PBL) to take over the Falcons’ basketball program in 2008.

    But while Adamson made a minor upgrade on its roster, Austria believes the other teams are still getting better using their strong recruitment program.

    “Ateneo has a strong recruitment program like La Salle," said Austria. “National University will have two Cameroonians playing this season and will have a new coach so expect some improvement on this team."

    It’s been more than three decades since Adamson soared on top of the UAAP basketball tournament when Hector Calma led the Falcons to the 1977 title. – GMANews.TV
    And that's the bottom line, because I said so!

    Last Saturday was particularly muggy at the Lyceum Gym, but the action was even hotter.

    In the featured game, Adamson showed lots of end-game poise and a determined defensive stance in the second half to upend Arellano 60-57.

    Down by as much as 15 late in the first period, the Falcons came back behind King Importante, Lucio Margallo, Lester Alvarez and Jeric Canada. They tightened up on defense in the second half and started getting out on their own transition game. With African import Austin Manara tending the inside, the Falcons found the fuel for their fastbreak.

    Arellano was having its way thanks to their patented run-and-gun offense, as Adrian Celada, Ice Ciriacruz, Ed Rivera and Ian Virtudazo busted out on transition practically at will.

    Canada had 11 points in a well-spread offense for Adamson, while Virtudazo led all scorers with 14 markers.

    Austin Manara is tall, long-limbed, agile and very athletic. Unfortunately he has quite a ways to go in terms of being a difference-making superstar, certainly he is not the guy by which the Falcons will live and die. In the ongoing Fr Martin Open he has seen maybe 18-20 minutes of action, mostly off the bench. He gets most of his rebounds on sheer length and leap, still does not position himself that well, evidenced by his inability to keep Arellano center Ed Rivera out of that guy's own sweet spots on the left box. Considering Rivera is some two inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter than Manara, that cannot be good news. Plus Manara still cannot make a freethrow, meaning he is a liability in tight situations, and can become victim of a hack-attack strategy.

    On the plus side, you really cannot teach height and athleticism. Manara can jump out of the gym, run fast going both ways, has a lot of fighting heart and never gives up on a play. If and when he learns better positioning and maybe make even just 2-out of every-3 freethrows then he will be well on his way to genuine superstar status.
