    Pareng maroonmartian, salamat for taking the initiative for starting a new topic about the Soaring Falcons line-up for UAAP Season 74. People might get the impression that Hector the Heckler is Adamson and vice versa :D

    I read before (can't remember where) that Stinnet is one-and-done for Adamson.

    Maybe some people who is more-in-the-know could shed a light.

    ^ Will Stinnet enrolled late and wound up sitting two and a half instead of only the requisite two years. Basically inabutan siya ng maximum age of 25 years old. Had he enrolled earlier he could have played two seasons, pero last season would really have been his last.

    May isa pa siyang kasabay na isa pang taga-Guam si Stinnet, a brawny 6'5" center-forward Brian Susuico. With Austin Manyara in the lineup it came down to a choice between Stinnet and Susuico, since they were both the same age and enrolled at the same time, Adamson chose Stinnet to shore up the perimeter.

    I think both players returned to Guam already.

    Defensive stops key Ateneo’s 29th straight win over Adamson
    by Adrian Dy

    DEFENDING, three-peat champion Ateneo de Manila University tightened up on defense when it mattered the most, holding Adamson University scoreless in the last 6:56 of the fourth quarter while scoring 11 straight points to nab a come-from-behind win, 55-51, last July 10, at the Araneta Coliseum.
    Having crafted a 51-44 lead over Ateneo, the Falcons were looking forward to finally ending a 28-game losing streak to their foes. But when push came to shove, the Blue Eagles relied on their defense, forcing Adamson to miss its last 14 shots en route to just seven points in the final canto.
    “Our advantage is that we could dump it down to Greg [Slaughter] in the post,” said Ateneo head coach Norman Black after the game. Indeed, Ateneo took full advantage of their 7’0″ transferee and returned to the more post-centered system it utilized with center Rabeh Al-Hussaini two years ago. Slaughter led all scorers with 23 points, eight rebounds and two blocks as his bulldozer-like performance in the post confounded the Adamson big men. Kirk Long added 10 and Nico Salva had eight for Ateneo, which had to put up with the sub-par debut of blue-chip rookie Kiefer Ravena. The highly touted ex-Blue Eaglet went scoreless in 14 minutes.
    “This was a tough game for Kiefer because normally we use him as a two [shooting guard]. They started posting him up [with Janus Lozada and Alex Nuyles]. It’s something he’s going to have to adjust to,” explained Black.
    The Eagles got off to a blistering 8-2 start, setting up Slaughter in the post immediately. Long and Salva then added their firepower to the mix as Ateneo stretched the lead to a game-high 11 points, 16-5. But the Falcons battled back and took their first lead of the game, 34-33 after a triple by Lester Alvarez. Adamson continued to bomb away from outside before an Austin Manyara tip-in handed coach Leo Austria’s unit its largest advantage of the game, 51-44. Unfortunately for the Falcons, that proved to be their last basket of the game.
    With 2:15 left, the Eagles went back to their money man, Slaughter, who took Jan Colina’s fifth foul while tying it at 51-all. Long then converted on a layup in transition after referees ruled it was tipped away after it had hit the backboard, infuriating the Adamson side of the arena. That turned out to be the go-ahead basket, putting the Eagles up, 53-51.
    On the succeeding possession, Adamson missed four attempts on offensive boards by Rodney Brondial and Eric Camson. The Falcons lucked out though, with Manyara forcing a turnover on Slaughter on the next possession. But a pass by Alvarez slipped through Cabrera’s hands. That set-up game-clinching free throws by Emman Monfort, who once again closed Adamson out from the line.
    The tightness of the game was not a surprise to Black, who said, “It’s pretty much what we expected. For one, they’re well-coached. Two, they’re very talented. They scouted as well, they know our plays.”
    Alex Nuyles led the Falcons with 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting. Point guards Alvarez and Cañada combined for 14 points and eight assists. The Falcons got balanced scoring, 24 from the starters and 27 from their bench, while the Eagles banked hard on their starters, getting just eight from their second-unit.
    The scores:
    Ateneo 55 – Slaughter 23, Long 10, Salva 8, Monfort 6, Erram 3, Gonzaga 3, Austria 2, Ravena 0, Tiongson 0, Sumalinog 0, Golla 0, Chua 0
    Adamson 51 – Nuyles 11, Alvarez 8, Cañada 6, Camson 6, Cabrera 6, Manyara 5, Lozada 3, Etrone 2, Brondial 2, Colina 2
    That almost 7 minute scoring drought equals their team's 29th losing streak to this team. Frankly they could have won it. They just fell in love with the three. The same weapon that brought them back failed them at the closing minute of the game.

    Falcons claw Tams for first win
    By Alder Almo

    MANILA, Philippines -- The Adamson Falcons soared high and took the Far Eastern University Tamaraws by the horns with a huge 78-59 confidence-boosting win in the UAAP Season 74 at the Araneta Coliseum today.

    Alex Nuyles scored 10 of his game-high 22 points in the opening canto as the Falcons jumped the guns on the unsuspecting Tamaraws.

    Adamson sustained its surge in the succeeding quarters to get its first win of the season after losing their first game to defending champion Ateneo.

    The Tamaraws came closest at 56-60 on RR Garcia's three-point play, but the Falcons quickly buckled down to work. An 8-0 spurt by Adamson capped off by a well-executed alley-oop pass by Jerick Canada to Janus Lozada extended the lead back to double digits, 68-56, with 3:56 left.

    The Tamaraws, who opened the season with a win over De La Salle Green Archers, failed to find their groove in this game, shooting just 37.5 percent from the field.

    Third year forward Eric Camson churned out a double-double performance with 12 points and 10 boards to back up Nuyles, while five more Adamson players chipped in five or more points.

    Garcia and Aldrech Ramos led the Tamaraws with 20 and 14 markers, respectively.

    The scores:

    AdU 78 - Nuyles 22, Camson 12, Lozada 8, Colina 8, Manyara 6, Petilos 5, Canada 5, Etrone 4, Cabrera 3, Brondial 2, Alvarez 2, Monteclaro 1, Manuel 0, Agustin 0, Rios 0, Olalia 0.

    FEU 59 - Garcia 20, Ramos 14, Cawaling 11, Romeo 5, Tolomia 4, Cruz 2, Exciminiano 2, Escoto 1, Sentcheu 0, Pogoy 0, Foronda 0, Bringas 0, Knuttel 0.

    Quarters: 25-16, 42-34, 56-45, 78-59.
    Statement game. They are a serious contender for the Finals.

    Falcons hand UST 1st defeat
    by Adrian Dy

    IT’S quickly becoming second nature for Adamson University to run its opponents into the ground early.

    Following up their 78-59 drubbing of the FEU Tamaraws, the Falcons burst out to a 16-2 start against the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers and never looked back, successfully fending off repeated fightbacks to grab their second straight win in the 74th season of the UAAP, 81-71 last July 24 at the PhilSports Arena.
    Alex Nuyles scored eight, and Janus Lozada added four in that run after Chris Camus gave UST its first and only lead of the game, 2-0 on a fast break layup. The Tigers, egged by their head coach Pido Jarencio, didn’t roll over and die, though, clawing back over the next two quarters before finally trimming the lead down to single digits on an and-one play by rookie Kevin Ferrer with 7:30 left in third, 46-37. They got it down to eight twice later on in the same period, once on a basket by Karim Abdul, and then two possessions later on a bucket by Camus off a Karim Abdul dish, 52-44. But in that last instance, Adamson countered with seven straight, including a triple from Nuyles, to keep them at an arm’s length.
    A last-ditch effort in the tailend of the fourth cut the deficit down to nine, 76-67 on a bank shot by Jeric Teng, before Eric Camson played hero, nailing a triple from the top of the key with 1:08 left to play and ensuring that the Growling Tigers would suffer their first loss of the season. “This is a very important game dahil UST [was] 2-0 going into this game,” said Falcons head coach Leo Austria. “In order to solidify our spot in second place below Ateneo…we could not afford to lose this game.”
    Four Falcons finished with double-digit scoring, led by a career-high 21 points from Janus Lozada, who played just 22 minutes due to foul trouble. Camson added 19 and seven rebounds, Nuyles flashed his all-around game with 16 points, six rebounds and three assists, and Lester Alvarez came off the bench to score 11 points and dish out four dimes.
    Looking to limit the production of the perimeter scorers of UST, the Falcons were successful to a large extent, allowing just 15 points from Teng on 3-of-9 shooting, and preventing Ferrer, who had nine, and Jeric Fortuna, eight, from scoring in double-digits. In their absence, reserve forward Melo Afuang and Abdul combined for 27 points and 13 rebounds, though the Cameroonian rookie was whistled for an unsportsmanlike foul in the second quarter for elbowing Camson on the head. All in all, the Growling Tigers shot just 24 percent from the perimeter on 25 shots for 14 points, a far cry from their usual production.
    The now 2-1 Falcons shoot for win number three on Thursday, July 28, against the 0-4 UE Red Warriors, while the Tigers, who sport the same record as their tormentors, look to get back their winning ways when they face 3-1 FEU on Saturday, July 30.

    The scores:
    Adamson 81 – Lozada 21, Camson 19, Nuyles 16, Alvarez 11, Manyara 5, Colina 4, Etrone 3, Cañada 2, Petilos 0, Brondial 0, Cabrera 0
    UST 71 – Teng 15, Afuang 14, Abdul 13, Ferrer 9, Fortuna 8, Camus 8, Pe 2, Vigil 1, Lo 1, Tan 0, Sheriff 0
    Quarter scoring: 16-5, 42-29, 64-48, 81-71

    Four players in double figures. Another win where the Falcons raised the lead early, their key for their victories so far. I also notice their half-court man to man defense. Maybe one of the best in the league.

    Adamson has show consistency across the board against two teams expected to give them trouble if not beat them, FEU and UST. Keeping it simple has certainly helped. Use the man-zone or Box-1 on defense to force out the opposing guards. Hit the gas for the early offense whenever possible. Move the ball quickly and reverse just as quickly in the halfcourt. It even almost worked against Ateneo.
