    UAAP Season 74 for the Green Archers

    Mukhang wala pang thread dito for the UAAP games ng Season 74 Green Archers.

    Let's start reviewing on yesterday's game versus FEU.

    Backcourt/Wing: Si Revilla lang ang may magandang laro from La Salle's backcourt yesterday. Napapagod na lang din kaya hindi na makapag-perform ng maayos but kung gugustuhin niya, tingin ko maglalaro siya for 40 minutes. Vosotros was not on his element. Poor-decision-making especially on the offensive end para sa kanya. He cannot get his shots going and wala ring initiative to drive and dish man lang or set-up mga kakampi niya. Masakit din sa mata panoorin si Atkins kahapon. Wala din sa utak maglaro. Threw a lot of shots with good looks pero hindi lang talaga lumalaglag. He even had a botched lay-up.

    Okay sana laro ni Dela Paz kaya lang kulang pa sa aggressiveness to get the basketball and score baskets. Parang ang konti lang ng attempts niya kahapon. Nakatulong sana siya sa opensa had he gotten more scoring opportunities.

    Hindi ko alam kung ano problem ni Marata yesterday kung bakit halos hindi siya pinalaro. Mukha siyang tumaba pero yung iba sinasabi na he just added muscle. Mukhang wala sa kundisyon yung bata and his scoring presence would have helped the team as well.

    Tampus played a bit mature yesterday save for his crucial turnovers sa 2nd half. Hindi na niya pinupwersa mga tira niya and kung may makikita siyang pasa sa ilalim, he makes those passes. Si Andrada ang kanyang paboritong target before Andrada went down with a bad fall nung 2nd quarter.

    Si Webb, ganun pa rin. Walang direksyon ang mga tira. Tentative sa mga galaw sa opensa. Tingin ko nga puede na siya ibangko with his performance yesterday. Takot mapalpal. Hindi man lang kumuha ng body contact sa kalaban to fish for a foul. Basta pag may sumabay sa kanya, ibabato na lang niya na parang ala-hoy.

    Frontline: Magandang grado para kina Torres, Van Opstal, at Gotladera. Kahit na foul-trouble si Torres, bumawi siya sa depensa and gumawa din kahit papaano sa opensa sa kokonting oras na nakapaglaro siya sa loob ng court. Torres also had good looks from the perimeter kaya lang hindi lang din talaga maipasok. Si Van Opstal naman, nagpakita ng tapang sa loob ng court kahit alam mong may halo pang gigil sa kanyang parte. Gotladera also showed flashes of brilliance kahit alam mong gigl pa rin. Lumalaban kahit na beterano yung bumabantay at mas magulang na sa kanya maglaro.

    Nawala si Mendoza kahapon. Hindi nagpakita ng kahit na ano sa paglalaro sa loob ng court. Si Papot, ganun pa rin. Malambot at nagpapatulak basta-basta sa kalaban. Parang tinatamad maglaro kahapon e. Parang mas gusto na matulog na lang sa bahay. Hindi nakapagtatakang wala siya halos playing time.

    Hindi ko alam kung kabado ba ang mga players ng La Salle kahapon. Hindi ko din lubos maisip kung bakit kailangan pa nilang kabahan at yung iba sa kanila beterano na kung tutuusin. Sa opensa, parang kulang ang mga play na pinatatakbo ng coaching staff at yung mga bata ay parang nakakahon sa offensive plays na pinapagawa sa kanila. Dahil ba sa wala talagang go-to guy ang La Salle? O takot lang mapagalitan ng coaches pag hindi sila assigned na tumira kahit na broken play na ang set?

    Hindi naging maganda ang opensa ng La Salle kahapon. Napakasakit sa mata panoorin na kahit lay-up ay nagawa nilang i-mintis. Mabagal din magpatakbo ng offensive sets kahapon. Ang tagal mag-isip kung ano gagawin sa bola, kung ibibigay ba sa poste o paiikutin sa perimeter.

    Wala nang katapusan ang problema sa free throws ng Archers. Parang habit na nila ang mag-mintis ng free throws. Hindi ko rin alam kung kulang lang ba sila sa ensayo mag-free throw o talagang kabado lang din sila sa laro kaya puro mintis ang kanilang mga free throws.

    May anim na araw na puede maghanda ang La Salle para sa Ateneo sa Sabado pero sa ngayon napakadami pang kakaining bigas ng La Salle kung gusto nilang may marating sila this season. Hindi ko rin alam kung saan at paano sila magsisimula pero madami pa namang panahon para mag-adjust. Mahaba pa ang liga pero dapat aksyunan ang dapat aksyunan.

    Green Archers lost in their first game against the Tams.

    Re: UAAP Season 74 for the Green Archers

    FEU ran a play they were already running in the Fil Oil and strangely Lasalle did not adjust to it: JR Cawaling got lots of good looks from outside and sank two treys that helped pad leads for the Tamaraws just when Lasalle was threatening. Those were essentially the same swing-reverse plays to corner and quarter-court shooters FEU ran for Paul Sanga all of last year. I think Coach Dindo Pumaren didn't really put hands in Cawaling's face because unlike Sanga Cawaling can drive when he sees a hard-show by the defense, i.e. dare him to beat you with his long shot than with a dribble-drive. Unfortunately Cawaling sank a good number of those shots. He also got those passes coming off the short pass-back on the dribble-penetration of RR Garcia or Terrence Romeo.

    Also, the Lasalle bigs weren't making hay in spite of all the sun (figuratively speaking) on those offensive rebounds. Norbert Torres, Arnold Van Opstal and even veterans like Maui Villanueva and Jovet Mendoza just weren't converting on the second chance opportunities. Once again the Lasalle frontline is coming under scrutiny. After LA Revilla almost pulled out a win by himself, the onus is now on the bigs to show they can contribute consistently.

    Throwing in the entire roster save for Martin Reyes looked like a panic move on Dindo's part. Uaap na, experiment pa ang ginagawa? Not good man, not good!

    DLSU got beat up by ateneo yesterday. I hope that this is already the wake up call that the team and the organization responds to.
    This UAAP season will be won by the team who will control the paint. Since almost every UAAP team has gotten stronger with their frontline.
    With that said how will la salle fair against the frontline of other teams? Will AVO, Torres, Paredes, Andrada, Villanueva, Gotladera and Mendoza be enough to counter the likes of Slaughter, Ramos, Mbe etc.?

    The answer - things are looking bad as of july 17, 2011.

    AVO is the still the prospect that everyone thought he would be since he has a lot to work on especially in the low post. Fundamentals would be key. But no one can doubt the height and the wide frame that AVO possesses.

    Torres needs to remember that GOD gave him the gift of height and frame. So why not use it in the low post where he can take advantage of it. I don't care if he can sink his three point shots in a pick up game but when he's playing against the defending champs I never want to see him attempt more than 3 shots from outside.

    Paredes, Andrada, Villanueva and Mendoza will have to make the most out of their reduced playing time. These guys can play. What they lack in height, they make up for in speed and hustle.... But working on their free throws wouldn't hurt.

    Gotladera is a rookie who does not get a lot of playing time but he has a lot of talent. He's ready to bang against anyone in the low post. He does not miss open lay ups or put-backs. Out of all the bigs, he's the most physical among them. He should have more playing time!

    Do you guys know who la salle's big man coach is? Because la salle really hasn't developed any superstar big men. How about investing in a better big man coach? Well the current big man coach needs to develop the big men's ability in the low post concentrating on the fundamentals - dribbling for one.

    The frontline needs work. But I'm glad to see Revilla taking leadership. As a vocal leader and as the scoring leader. Build around LA Revilla and Marata's smooth stroke from the outside and we'll be back to winning ways.

    * la salle missed a ton of lay ups and put-backs in yesterday's game and that could be attributed to the loss.
    * Ravena is not invincible. He just happens to have a great IQ and the skills of a veteran, but basketball is a team game. La salle has got what it takes to win the championship this season because they are a team - almost all of their players score in each game. That is a true indication of a team.

    There is a reason big men are supposed to play inside: shots are closer to the basket, rebounds are easier to get. With size, these things become even easier, or so the logic goes. Which brings us to the Lasalle bigs, especially the guy getting the minutes, Norbert Torres. When he took shots inside the paint, he had some success. When he jacked up treys he went 0-7 (by my count), and of course was a non-factor off the boards. Maui Villanueva was good for nearly 10 rebounds per game last year. His reward this year is reduced minutes. Jovet Mendoza had a 22-point game versus FEU in the Fil Oil quarters. His reward is the same as Villanueva's. Arnold Van Opstal was bascially already playing like this in high school. He had a year to get better. He got bigger and stronger, but better, well... let's just say even my Lasalista friends won't go there. Which leaves us with Yutien Andrada, who was injured and couldn't play versus Ateneo.

    I hope all of this is taken up at the team meeting.

    The pressure might be on Dindo to log in heavy minutes for AVO and Norbert because of the support of a number of DLSU boosters.

    As per two games in the UAAP, AVO and Norbert are not as aggressive enough. Kung ako si Dindo ibigay niya ang playing time to Papot, Jovet and Maui. These 3 are willing to bang bodies not unlike the other two who shy away from contact.

    Sigurado ako marami na namang sisisihin ang big man coach ng La Salle (who is a NCAA commentator). Bigs ng La Salle non-factor in the last two games. Ang problema yun isa (Torres) feeling forward kaya tira ng tira sa labas. OK sana pero di naman pumapasok. I agree dapat palitan ang starting frontline. Ibangko na dalawang ito at paglaruin mga beterano.

    If DLSU loses the next game, it would be really be a panic mode for Dindo Pumaren.

    Maybe the veteran bigs should have most of the minutes since AVO and Torres so far have not played well. But then again... Papot, Jovet, Maui and Andrada have had their shot at that role in the past seasons and have proven ineffective. What more now that almost all of the teams have stacked up on bigs. I firmly believe that AVO and Torres will be the key to a title since they have the size and strength to match up against the likes of Slaughter and Mbe. It just so happens that la salle's system right now is not working - especially if you allow Torres to take 7 shots from the arc. La Salle's coaching staff must create more plays for Torres to get the ball down in the low post. I have seen too much pick and pops by LA and Torres, with Torres taking the three point shot. Why not roll to the basket? LA is a good enough passer to make that play happen. This play should be considered everytime la salle is playing in the halfcourt game, right now, it's all just shots from the outside.

    * La salle has been getting a lot of offensive rebounds in the past two games but cannot convert for the second chance points. But I believe as the season progresses they woud get a lot of points off of these opportunities.

    Para sa akin lang naman, AVO played well in those two games. Problem lang, he was benched for a long time after playing good in the minimal time he was inside the court.

    Norbert's shots I think are "play call" shots. He took open shots na nagmimintis lang sa pagkakataon na yun. Had those shots went in, magrereklamo ba kayo why Norbert took those shots? I will agree though that Norbert should mix it up pag alam niyang wala siyang pulso at the moment to take outside shots. Get some confidence muna sa loob then pag okay na, then dahan-dahan extend the range sa labas. Remember guys that Norbert is not a back-to-the-basket player and perimeter ang laro niya so we cannot change it drastically for him to focus only playing inside.

    Ang hindi ko lang maintindihan is yung substitution patterns ni Dindo for the wingmen. Mainit laro ni Oda then all of a sudden ilalabas.

    La Salle still played slow in their halfcourt sets. They should just get back playing simple basketball. Pag tao-tao, use spacing then pick and roll at the top or at the elbow will do things for you. Ball rotation na lang para hindi na mawindang ang mga players sa complex plays. When La Salle made that run last Saturday in the 3rd to 4th quarters, pick and roll lang si LA and Norbert sa elbow then bahala na umikot ang bola later on. When La Salle returned running their usual halfcourt plays involving staggered screens, ayun, nawala na naman diskarte ng mga bata and turnovers started killing them.

    It is imperative as well na magpakita si Atkins and Vosotros. They really have to score and help in the offensive load. If not then tapos na ang season para sa La Salle. They can look forward to season 75.
