    Re: Golden Stags & Golden Staglets in the NCAA Brazen@87

    Imo, there are two combined factors that would prevent the Stags from going for a sweep-- their shallow bench and the long elimination of 18 games.

    This may manifest in the period of Setp 30- Oct 12, at the end of the eliminations, where they play 3 games - Letran/ Sept 30, Lyceum/ Oct 5 and San Beda/Oct 12.

    The spacing of the games isn't bad for the Stags, but going for 16th, 17th and 18th wins against these teams will be no picnic. Letran and Lyceum are always tough match-ups. No need to elaborate what is at stake in the game vs San Beda.

    From hereon, what would be interesting is to see how Topex gets his bench more involve in offense. If he can lessen the load on the Big 3 and still remain undefeated, I'll pick the Stags to win outright their last 3 games.

    Maybe that's another factor we have to consider -- Topex.

    Paano nya pipigain ang bench, at kakayanin niya din ba ang pressure.
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    "Abueva starred for the Stags with 27 points, 20 rebounds and six assists, though he accounted for a whopping nine of his team’s 21 turnovers. Ian Sangalang was a monster inside with a double-double of his own, 20 points and 11 rebounds, while Pascual and dela Cruz scored 11 each."

    Another MVP performance for Calvin Abueva. And their winning. His other "Pinatubo" brothers are also MVP contenders. Abueva averages 21.8 ppg and 12.8 rpg, Pascual with 19.2 ppg, and Sangalang with 17.6 ppg and 11.9 rpg.Yung top three players nila nasa top five sa scoring. Kahit sila deserving din. Only a suspension might prevent him from not taking the MVP.

    Wala ako problema sa bench if you have consistent trios like this. As long the bench is not a drag it would be OK. Hindi naman ganun. They have embraced their role.

    If their is one factor that would inspire them to a historic 18-0 sweep? Its their hunger to regain the title.

    There will be a Final 4 as the Stags were defeated by Letran by a hairline to repeat what they did to the team in 2009 when former attempted for the sweep. History repeats itself.

    Sweep no more: Knights end Stags’ win run
    by Adrian Dy

    THE Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights showed that history can in fact repeat itself.
    Replicating their Season 85 feat, the Knights was able to snap San Sebastian College-Recoletos’ undefeated streak, ensuring a Final Four postseason format with their 82-81 overtime win in the 87th season of the NCAA last September 30 at the Arena in San Juan.
    Kevin Alas drained a clutch three-pointer with 22.9 seconds left and hauled down Calvin Abueva’s miss to ensure that the Stags would not get a second look at the basket with seconds remaining in the game in a clutch display. “Siguro siyam na tira ko dun, wala [did not go in],” said Alas after the game, giving his theory on why his defender, Ronald Pascual, sagged off him on that crucial basket. Alas also said that he looked at his father and coach, Louie Alas, to see if he should shoot. “Ayaw niya akong tignan,” Kevin said, laughing, a sign that the decision was up to him. Luckily for the Knights, the shot was all net.
    Down a point after 30 minutes, the Knights took a four-point lead after a Franz Dysam triple, his fourth of the game, to make it 58-54 barely two minutes into the period. Letran maintained that buffer all the way to the last minute and a half, on a baseline drive by Alas, but that turned out to be its last shot of regulation. On the other end, Pascual hit two clutch baskets to knot things at 72-all with 30.9 seconds remaining, forcing Letran to sue for time. Alas missed on the set play, but Kevin Racal grabbed the board, leaving his team with nine seconds to make a play. The ball went to Alas again, but he slipped on his drive, forcing him to kick it out to VJ Espiritu in the corner. The sniper heaved up a triple, only to see it sent back outside by Jovit dela Cruz, leaving 0.1 seconds on the clock. Off another timeout, Alas inbounded to an open Jam Cortes, but the big man missed his jumper, forcing the extra period.
    In the overtime, Espiritu redeemed himself by draining a long bomb to put Letran up 79-76 with 1:38 left, before Pascual answered back with a triple of his own, followed by a layup with 1:10 left to give the Stags a slim two-point lead. Off a timeout, a bungled pass by Alas led to a fastbreak opportunity for San Sebastian, but the referees ruled that Abueva traveled, giving the Knights the possession that led to Alas’ triple.
    “Salamat sa history,” joked Louie Alas after the game, referring to the last time the Knights faced the Stags with San Sebastian riding an unbeaten streak of this proportion. In 2009, Letran handed the eventual champions their first loss of the season, 80-63 on September 25. This game was far from a blowout of that magnitude, but the Knights didn’t mind at all.
    Both squads battled hard in the first half, swapping leads along the way. In the third, back-to-back triples by Anthony del Rio, plus a pair of charities by Abueva, propped San Sebastian up 45-40, 5:47 left in the third. On the next trip down, a pump-fake by Raymund Almazan drew Abueva’s fourth foul, eliminating him from the equation until the latter part of the final period. A triple by Dysam and an and-one play by Alas finally put the Knights up 51-49 with 40.9 seconds left, but Ian Sangalang answered back with a hoop and a harm of his own to put San Sebastian up by one.
    Kevin Alas led the Knights with 22 points, along with six rebounds, 10 assists and four steals in his 40-minute stint. Cortes added 13 points, seven boards and four dimes, while Dysam was 4-of-8 from downtown, which accounted for all 12 of his points. It was a fitting reversal of fortunes by the Knights after they had suffered an upset, 68-53 at the hands of the cellar-dwelling Perpetual Help Altas last September 26. “Dito ko titignan kung mama kayo, kung ano yung made of kayo,” said coach Alas. Clearly they responded well to his test.
    The Stags were led by the 25 points of Pascual, who also added five rebounds and four assists. Sangalang chipped in a double-double of 22 points and 13 rebounds, while Abueva played just 29 minutes because of foul trouble, but still managed 16 markers and a massive 20 boards.
    At 13-3, Letran stayed a half-game behind the second-place San Beda Red Lions, but Alas said it didn’t matter if they were the second or third seed. They still have two remaining games, against the St. Benilde Blazers on October 3, and then a matchup against those same Red Lions on October 7. Meanwhile, the Stags dropped to 15-1, still good for first place. They have two remaining games as well on their plate, versus the Lyceum Pirates on October 5, and the Red Lions on October 12.
    The scores:
    Letran 82 – K. Alas 22, Cortes 13, Dysam 12, Belorio 8, J. Alas 8, Racal 4, Almazan 4, Cruz 4, Gabriel 4, Espiritu 3
    San Sebastian 81 – Pascual 25, Sangalang 22, Abueva 16, dela Cruz 9, del Rio 6, Miranda 2, Vitug 1, Maiquez 0, Ferrer 0, Balucanag 0
    Quartervscoring: 20-15, 34-34, 51-52, 72-72, 82-81

    Topex doesn't need this job. Ano man ang mangyari o kahitnan ng Stags, he should just resign at the end of their season.

    Bastusan na ang nangyayari.
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    Di kaya yun ang dahilan kung bakit nag-resign ang previous coach. Mas looking ahead lang yung una at nakita na ang kahihinatnan, kaya't 5 days before the start of the season ay bumitaw na rin.

    Kanina, walang nakialam sa coaching. Si Topex lang ang coach. Pati nga yung mga assistant coaches ay nanatiling nakaupo for most parts of the game unlike in the elims. Apparently they took notice of observations how Topex is being undermined and how confusing the situation becomes when there are more than 1 head coach.
