    FEU coach ecstatic at huge turnout in Lady Tamaraws’ open tryout
    by Lester Niere on April 16, 2015

    MANILA — After leading Far Eastern University returned to the UAAP women’s volleyball Final Four, a horde of Lady Tamaraw hopefuls trooped to the gym in Manila to try out for slots in the team.

    Coach Shaq delos Santos was ecstatic about it.

    More than 50 volleyball players were at the FEU R. Papa Gym on Wednesday, exceeding Delos Santos’ wildest expectations.

    “Alam namin na may dadating pero yung ganito kadami, medyo nagulat din talaga kami,” he said after leading the volleyball drills. “Pero happy kami na maraming gusto pa din mapunta sa FEU.”

    The hopefuls were tested through a series of challenges, including a scrimmage among co-aspirants to challenge not only their skills but also their attitude inside the court.

    Looking for the right players who can match the intensity that the likes of Bernadeth Pons and Gen Casugod give the team, the assistant coach of Petron admitted that they have specific positions that they need to fill in.

    “Unang-unang hinahanap namin ay middle blocker kasi si Casugod at Palma malapit na matapos ang playing year,” he revealed. “Setter kailangan din. Yung alam nating pang-compete na.”

    Delos Santos added that they are more meticulous in choosing recruits as they aim for a higher spot next season.

    “Sensitive kami sa pag-pili kasi siyempre alam naman natin na yung competition ngayon tumataas na talaga yung level,” he said.

    For all the hopefuls who attended the FEU tryout, Delos Santos has nothing to say but pure gratitude.

    “Katulad ng sinabi ko sa kanila, kailangan lagi lang ibigay yung best sa kung ano man gagawin nila o kung saan man sila magt-try out.” — Rivals 2015

    'Big Mac' Belo steps up as Gilas cadets nip Indonesia to retain SEA Games basketball gold
    From: Reuben Terrado

    SINGAPORE - The Philippines found another hero in Mac Belo as it survived a gripping finale against Indonesia, 72-64, to retain the basketball gold medal in the 28th Southeast Asian Games.

    Belo scored 22 points and time and again kept the heads of the Gilas cadets above water in a game played before a predominantly pro-Filipino crowd at the OCBC Arena that didn't breathe easy until the final seconds.

    The victory gave the Philippines its 17th basketball gold medal in the SEA Games, where it has reigned supreme in all but the 1989 edition in Kuala Lumpur. No basketball competition was held back in 2005 when host Philippines was under suspension from world basketball body Fiba.

    However, the gap between the Philippines and its regional rivals is fast closing.

    Just a day after having to survive a tough stand by Thailand in an 80-75 semifinal victory, Tab Baldwin's cadets were again made to sweat by an Indonesian side toughened by stints in the Asean Basketball League (ABL).

    The Indonesians lost to the Gilas cadets by 56 points in the Seaba tournament and by 29 in their preliminary meeting here. This time they battled back from 18 points down to stay within three points going to the final stretch.

    Skipper Kiefer Ravena also made a big play late, intercepting a crosscourt pass by Indonesia and scoring on a layup that eased the pressure on Gilas, 61-56, with 4:31 left.

    A visibly relieved Baldwin was given the traditional victory ride later and doused with water by Filipino players, most of whom played in this biennial showpiece for the first time.

    “It’s obvious there is a lot of love between this basketball team and coaching staff. We worked hard,” said Baldwin.

    The gold medal was also the 29th overall for Team Philippines, sparing the 700-strong contingent the ignominy of falling below its 29-gold output in the 2013 Games in Myanmar.

    Ravena finished with 12 points as he clinched his third SEA Games gold medal. Troy Rosario added 11 points to make up for another lackluster showing by Marcu Douthit, who finished with three points.

    The scores:

    Philippines (72) — Belo 22, Ravena 12, Rosario 11, Ferrer 6, Thompson 5, Vosotros 5, Amer 4, Douthit 3, Jalalon 2, Khobuntin 1, Torres 1, Rivero 0.

    Indonesia (64) — Kurnaiwan 16, Sitepu 11, Wisnu 10, Gunawan 8, Wuysang 7, Enguio 7, Putra 3, Indrawan 2, Santosa 0, Sanjaya 0, Dhyaksa 0.

    Quarterscores: 22-15, 39-26, 58-47, 72-64.
