    Zamboanga Uno Latinos

    ZAMBOANGA named "Amores"

    All roads lead to Marcian Garden Hotel today for the launching of the Zamboanga Amores basketball team, a newly-created team composed of carefully selected young and promising local players, which has been chosen as one among 16 basketball teams from the entire country, to play in the recently established Liga ng Pilipinas.


    Liga ng Pilipinas is founded and headed by the famous former PBA Commissioner Noli Eala.

    Noted local player Junie Navarro, who is the team coordinator, disclosed that the Zamboanga City team has decided to name their team “Zamboanga Amores” which derived from Congressman Erbie A. Fabian’s “Amor Con Amor Se Paga” in recognition of the congressman’s continuous assistance and support to the promotion and development of sports.

    The launching ceremony is slated at 5 p.m. where prominent guests such as city officials, sports officials, and business leaders are invited to witness the presentation of the drafted local players who will compose the team.

    Fifty percent of the Zamboanga Amores come from the Zamboanga City basketball team that bagged the championship in this year’s National PRISAA.

    “Our Zamboanga Amores team is really composed of strong and promising players. They are at par and even can surpass their rival teams in the Liga ng Pilipinas,” said Rolando Navarro, noted sports enthusiast and promoter.

    He said that out of 26 teams from the entire country, only 16 teams were chosen to compose the national basketball conference.

    Zamboanga City was chosen as one of the four teams that come from the Mindanao region.

    “It is an honor that our team is selected to play in the Liga ng Pilipinas,” Navarro emphasized.

    They also expressed gratitude to Rep. Fabian for assisting them during the creation and organization of the Zamboanga Amores. — Jemuel E. Mojica

    Zamboanga Uno Latinos

    ZAMBOANGA CITY – The M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos tallied to their 13th straight victory in as many games by whipping the host Zamboanga Uno Latinos, 123-97, to begin action at the Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference III Zamboanga City Leg at the Summit Centre inside the Universidad de Zamboanga campus Wednesday night.

    The Latinos need to finish at least in Third Place in this their final leg assignment in order to make the playoffs for seats in next month’s Super Leg that will determine the next National Champion of the conference supported by Smart, Molten, Accel, Calcium-Cee, Gatorade, Air 21 and Burlington and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP). The Ninos of Michel J. Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba are assured of an outright berth.

    Starter Stephen Padilla fired nine triples en route to 29 points while Ian Saladaga backed him up with 23 off the bench. Jayson Rebollos paced the Latinos with 21 points and six rebounds while Christopher Concepcion added 20 points and six assists.

    In the first game, the defending National Champion Misamis Oriental Meteors of Gov. Oscar S. Moreno fueled their hopes of gaining an outright Super Leg seat with a 95-64 dumping of the EKB-Apayao Rapids of Gov. Elias K. Bulut.

    The Meteors under Coach Jun Noel flexed the same deadly form that made them win the tough Second China-ASEAN Invitational last week in Guangxi Zhuang, China.

    “The China trip raised the players’ individual confidence and bonded the team closer,” said Coach Noel. “We learned a lot playing against taller opponents and our outside shooters clicked well.”

    Patrick Cabahug continued from his hot showing in China by scattering six triples for 28 markers in only 27 minutes of play. Center Ronald Lamocha, who played last conference for the MP Warriors of GenSan, marked his first Liga game as a Meteor with 15 points and six rebounds. Alvin Vitug topped the Rapids with 15 markers followed by former Tagaytay-Cavite Hero Lawrence Bonus with 12 points and six rebounds.

    Choice games from the Zamboanga City Leg will be aired next week on Solar Sports from Wednesday to Saturday. Also, Liga Pilipinas Classics are seen daily on Viva Prime Channel. For more information, visit www.ligapilipinas.net.

    Re: Zamboanga Uno Latinos

    ZAMBOANGA CITY – Liga Pilipinas’ centerpiece rivalry will add another chapter after the defending National Champion Misamis Oriental Meteors and former champion M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos crushed separate opponents Thursday evening to arrange a titular showdown for the Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference III Zamboanga City Leg at the Summit Centre of the Universidad de Zamboanga.

    Improving to similar and unreachable 2-0 win-loss cards, both teams will dispute the title tonight starting at 6:00 PM. Host Zamboanga Uno Latinos and the EKB-Apayao Rapids will play for Third Place at 4:00 PM.

    The Meteors of Gov. Oscar S. Moreno and Coach Jun Noel punished the Latinos in the main game, 122-77, and remained in the hunt for the second automatic seat in November’s Super Leg that will crown the next National Champion of the league backed by Smart, Accel, Molten, Calcium-Cee, Gatorade, Air 21 and Burlington and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    Melvin Mamaclay topped the Meteors with 24 points and 10 rebounds followed by Patrick Cabahug with 21 points off five triples. The reliable duo of Christopher Concepcion and Charleston Bolias again led the Latinos with 24 and 14 markers respectively but lacked support from the rest of the team.

    Meanwhile, the Ninos of Michel J. Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba stretched their undefeated card to 14-0 by punishing the Rapids of Gov. Elias K. Bulut, 107-72.

    “We want to enter the Super Leg on a positive note,” declared Coach Alcoseba. “Our goal is to bring back the National Championship to Cebu.” The Ninos were crowned the very first Liga Pilipinas National Champions on September 18, 2008 after they swept Taguig in the best-of-five series, 3-0

    The same players from Wednesday’s 123-97 thrashing of the host Latinos reprised their roles with Ian Saladaga powering the blowout with 18 points and four assists. Stephen Padilla added 13 as six other Ninos submitted at least eight markers in a balanced attack. Leimar Navarro paced the Rapids with 12 points. Gester Ebuen recovered from a scoreless outing against the Meteors the other day by knocking in 11 points.

    The best games from the Zamboanga City Leg will be aired next week on Solar Sports from Wednesday to Saturday. Also, Liga Pilipinas Classics are seen daily on Viva Prime Channel. The league’s official website may be accessed at www.ligapilipinas.net.

    How They Scored:

    First Game

    CEBU (107) – Saladaga 18, Padilla 13, Dacia 11, Nailon 10, Santos 10, Mepana 10, Malinao 8, Poligrates 8, Ababon 7, Magsumbol 5, Enriquez 3, Basco 2, Escobal 2.

    ZAMBOANGA CITY – The M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos continued their undefeated run by stopping the defending National Champion Misamis Oriental Meteors, 78-73, in a preview of the championship game of the Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference III Zamboanga City Leg Friday evening at the Summit Centre of the Universidad de Zamboanga.

    With the win, the team of Michel J. Lhuillier and Coach Raul "Yayoy" Alcoseba remained undefeated in all their 15 games thus far in the conference backed by Smart, Molten, Accel, Calcium-Cee, Gatorade, Air 21 and Burlington and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP). They also picked up a two-point bonus for sweeping all their three preliminary games in the leg.

    After winning their Wednesday and Thursday games via routs, the Ninos and Meteors finally faced an acid test in each other as they battled through nine deadlocks and six lead changes.

    Coach Alcoseba drew a big performance from big man Frank Nailon, who came off the bench to outplay the opposing centers.

    Nailon, who played for the Meteors in Conference I last year, banged in 18 points and six rebounds to lead the Ninos. Mark Ababon followed with 16 points. Patrick Cabahug paced the Meteors with 23 points followed by Eder Saldua with 21. However, the rest of the Meteors struggled, unable to back up their two gunners.

    The Meteors of Gov. Oscar S. Moreno and Coach Jun Noel hope to get back at the Ninos in Saturday’s leg finale in order to earn 10 points and move into Second Place overall in the Tour Standings, strengthening their hopes for an automatic berth in the five-team Super Leg that will determine the next National Champion this November.

    In the nightcap, the EKB-Apayao Rapids registered the franchise’s very first Liga Pilipinas win by trouncing the host Zamboanga Uno Latinos, 100-77.

    Losing their first six games, the Rapids of Gov. Elias K. Bulut raced to a 27-18 lead after one period and never looked back. The Latinos have one last chance to snatch the last playoff berth for the Super Leg should defeat the Rapids in the Third Place game. The MP Warriors of GenSan currently hold Eighth Place with eight points compared to the Latinos’ five points.

    Nat Cruz played his best game as a Rapid with 18 points, 11 rebounds and four assists off the bench. Starter Leimar Navarro supported him with 17 points in only 15 minutes of play. Charleston Bolias topped the Latinos with 21 points and eight rebounds followed by Jayson Rebollos with 15.

    Choice games from the Zamboanga City Leg will be aired next week on Solar Sports from Wednesday to Saturday. Also, Liga Pilipinas Classics are seen daily over Viva Prime Channel. The league’s official website is at www.ligapilipinas.net.

    Re: Zamboanga Uno Latinos

    ZAMBOANGA CITY – Golden perfection! The M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos became the first team to achieve a clean sweep of all their touring games after they halted defending National Champion Misamis Oriental Meteors, 91-81, for the championship of the Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference III Zamboanga City Leg Saturday night at the Summit Centre of the Universidad de Zamboanga.

    The Ninos of Michel J. Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba won all their 16 games to finish with 60 out of a possible 60 points and grab the undisputed top seeding entering the Super Leg later this month that will crown the next National Champion of the league made possible by Smart, Molten, Accel, Calcium-Cee, Gatorade, Air 21 and Burlington and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    Limited to only an average of four points in the preliminary round, power forward Ariel Mepana exploded for 19 points off the bench to lead the Ninos. Mark Magsumbol added 16 points in his best performance as a Nino. Eder Saldua fired 28 points for the Meteors but designated shooter Patrick Cabahug was limited to only 13 points after averaging 23.3 points in their first three outings.

    The Ninos will now await the identity of the second outright qualifier plus the three wild cards. The Meteors of Gov. Oscar S. Moreno and Coach Jun Noel earned five points for placing second and finished with 33 total points, enough to push them to Third Place past Forward Taguig that has 32 points. The Quezon Red Oilers currently occupy Second Place with 35 points as they await the results of the final leg this week in Apayao.

    The Third to Fifth Placers will be paired with the Sixth to Eight Placers in three separate series with the higher-ranked team enjoying the twice-to-beat and home court advantage. The three series winners advance to the Super Leg with the two outright qualifiers.

    Meanwhile, the EKB-Apayao Rapids of Gov. Elias K. Bulut went home with Third Place after repeating over the host Zamboanga Uno Latinos, 105-84. The Rapids thus registered back-to-back wins and gives them good momentum as they prepare to host the final leg starting this Wednesday when they welcome the Trace-Laguna Stallions, Smart-Pampanga Buddies and Cebu Landmaster-Mandaue.

    The loss caused the Latinos to miss the playoffs for the third straight conference with only six points and one win in 16 games. The MP Warriors of GenSan thus claimed the eighth and final playoff seat with eight points. The Latinos remained winless at home, dropping all 13 games since last year.

    Ismael Junio led the Rapids with 23 points followed by Leimar Navarro with 15. Jayson Rebollos paced the Latinos with 25 points while Charleston Bolias added 21 points and 11 rebounds.

    Selected games from the Zamboanga City Leg will be aired next week on Solar Sports from Wednesday to Saturday. Also, Liga Pilipinas Classics are seen daily over Viva Prime Channel. For more details, visit www.ligapilipinas.net.

    How They Scored:

    For Third Place

    APAYAO (105) – Junio 23, Navarro 15, Robles 13, Bonus 13, Cruz 11, Vitug 10, Dizon 6, Santos 6, Cabico 4, Bumanglad 2, Lustestica 2, Yambao 0, Evangelista 0, Ebuen 0, Villareal 0.

    ZAMBOANGA (84) – Rebollos 25, Bolias 21, Concepcion 16, Graebel 7, Merced 6, Necesito 5, Lozano 4, Navarro 0, Yap 0.
