    Mammie's sterling game carries UE over Adamson

    MANILA, Philippines – Charles Mammie dished out a monster performance while seldom-used Bong Galanza filled in for injured Roi Sumang as University of the East tripped Adamson, 77-60, Saturday in the UAAP Season 76 men's basketball tourney at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Mammie banged in 24 points and hauled down 24 rebounds while Galanza stepped up with 17 markers, spiked by three triples, as the duo led the Warriors' break-away in the fourth canto of the game featuring two ousted squads just battling for pride.

    The Warriors snapped a four-game slide and picked up their sixth win in 13 games while the Falcons absorbed their second straight loss for 4-10 overall in what's likely to be the coach Leo Austria's farewell game with AdU.

    "It's been a month of struggle for us. This win is important because it not only put us back on track but also enabled us to get back at Adamson, which beat us in the first round," said UE coach Boycie Zamar in Filipino.

    The Warriors suffered a spate of misfortunes in the last 30 days, missing Mammie, Ralf Olivares, and Lord Casajeros on suspensions in crucial matches that stymied their bid for a Final Four.

    UE finally kissed its semis aspirations goodbye when it lost to Ateneo last Sunday, 72-77, a game that later led to some boardroom debates due to the presence of suspended Ateneo coach Bo Perasol and banned UE player Olivares in the venue.

    Warriors ace Sumang suffered a strained right calf muscle in that game. He came in uniform Sunday but Zamar decided to give him a rest.

    "He can play but we don't want to risk aggravation. Somebody has to fill his shoes and fortunately Galanza was there, as well as Ralf (Olivares), (Lord) Casajeros, it was really a collective effort," said Zamar.

    Olivares, back after a two-game suspension, added 11 markers while Casajeros chipped in eight.

    Celedonio Trollano shot 15 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for AdU, which sent off graduating players Michael Agustin, Eric Cabigas, Rodney Brondial, Harry Petilos, Roider Cabrera, and Gian Abrigo.

    Austria is possibly in this list as he had already expressed his intention to leave after this season. Austria had piled a record of 40-61 in seven seasons as AdU coach and steered the Falcons to three Final Four appearances.

    "Right now I'm really sure (about not returning) and I think I deserve to take a break," said Austria, whose contract with ADU expires next month. "And there's no indication that they want me back; nobody's talking to me regarding my stint with Adamson. Maybe it's an indication that they want change."

    The Scores:

    UE 77 - Mammie 24, Galanza 17, Olivares 11, Casajeros 8, Alberto 7, Jumao-as 6, Santos 2, Noble 2, Pujante 0, Javier 0, Hernandez 0, Flores 0.

    AdU 60 - Trollano 15, Monteclaro 10, Inigo 6, Cabrera 6, Brondial 6, Agustin 6, Cruz 5, Sewa 3, Petilos 2, Abrigo 1, Garcia 0, Cabigas 0.

    MANILA -- The UE Red Warriors bucked the absence of team leader Roi Sumang to register a 77-60 win over the Adamson Falcons on Saturday's UAAP basketball action at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    Led by the 24 points and 24 rebounds of Charles Mammie, the Red Warriors dominated this year's hosts as seldom used Bong Galanza poured in 17 points for the Boycie Zamar-coached squad.

    "Yung character ng team andun this time," said Zamar, whose team led in almost all statistical categories.

    The Warriors shot 39.5% from the field, outrebounded the Falcons 50-46, and had more assists 16-12. UE improved their record to 6-7 with the victory.

    Zamar admitted that Sumang could have played the game but he opted not to use the cager, who is still recovering from a right knee strain that he sustained in their last game.

    "He can play. But somebody had to play his shoes. Andyan naman si Galanza, (Ralf) Oliveros at (Lord) Casajeros. It was a collective effort," relayed the Red Warriors mentor.

    UE used a solid fourth quarter to draw distance from the Falcons, who ended their Season 76 campaign with a 4-10 mark. They did little improvement as they can only better their Season 75 record of 3-11.

    Celedonio Trollano paced Adamson with his own double-double of 15 points and 12 boards. While Ryan Monteclaro was the only other Adamson player, who came up in double-digit scoring with his 10 markers.

    The match was believed to be Falcons head coach Leo Austria's last game for the San Marcelino-based squad.

    The Red Warriors will wind up their season on Wednesday against the UP Fighting Maroons at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

    UST Tigers end Eagles’ rule, gain Final 4

    By Jasmine W. Payo

    2:34 am | Thursday, September 19th, 2013

    University of Santo Tomas claimed the last Final Four berth while turning Ateneo from a five-time champion into a fifth placer yesterday.

    Surviving Ateneo’s repeated rallies, the Tigers regained their bearings just in time to carve out an 82-74 triumph that ended the Blue Eagles’ dominant five-year reign in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Karim Abdul buried 25 points on top of nine rebounds and five blocks and Jeric Teng also nailed five clutch free throws inside the last 27 seconds to finish with 17 markers for the Tigers, who lost to the Eagles in their title clash last year.

    “It’s a good feeling,” said coach Pido Jarencio after the Tigers secured the fourth spot at 8-6 in their winner-take-all match. “They beat us in the championship last year, now we kicked them out of the Final Four. It’s about time we have a new champion.”

    The Tigers advanced against National University, which holds the No. 1 spot and the twice-to-beat advantage, at the start of the Final Four on Sunday.

    Far Eastern University and La Salle will clash in the other pairing next week after they dispute the No. 2 spot and the last semifinal bonus this Saturday.

    Aside from absorbing a heartbreaking exit, the Eagles also saw an end to their record run of consecutive Final Four appearance at 14.

    Ateneo wiped out UST’s early 18-point cushion, but the Tigers started the fourth quarter with a 13-2 bomb that stretched a slim 52-51 edge to 65-53.

    The Eagles, who played minus suspended coach Bo Perasol, closed in at 75-71 in the last 52.8 seconds but the Tigers proved steady at the foul line by nailing all but one of eight attempts in the last 35 seconds.

    Earlier, University of the East survived University of the Philippines, 76-73.

    The Eagles and the Warriors finished tied for fifth with similar 7-7 records. The Maroons, who had a 73-70 lead, with 1:50 left finished winless at 0-14.

    The scores:

    First Game

    UE 76—Mammie 21, Casajeros 17, Olivares 12, Jumao-as 9, Alberto 7, Santos 6, Javier 4, Sumido 0, Noble 0, Galanza 0.

    UP 73—Marata 22, Soyud 15, Lao 10, Suarez 6, Ligad 5, Gallarza 4, Asilum 3, Wong 2, Harris 2, Ball 2, Gingerich 1, Amar 1, Paras 0, Desiderio 0.

    Quarters: 20-19, 44-34, 66-55, 76-73

    Second Game

    UST 82—Abdul 25, Teng 17, Daquioag 13, Ferrer 10, Mariano 7, Bautista 6, Sheriff 4, Pe 0, Lo 0, Lao 0.

    ATENEO 74—Ravena 20, Newsome 13, Elorde 12, Buenafe 9, Pessumal 8, Golla 4, Erram 4, Tolentino 2, Tiongson 2, Capacio 0.

    UAAP: UE ends season sans Final Four spot; UP still winless

    DESPITE missing the Final Four, University of the East (UE) salvaged enough pride in its last game by scoring a 76-73 win over University of the Philippines (UP) on Wednesday in the second round of UAAP Season 76 men’s basketball at the Araneta Coliseum.

    Although the Fighting Maroons managed to make it a close game in the last period, the Red Warriors stood tall in crunch time to finish the elimination round with a 7-7 win-loss slate which was not enough for a quarterfinal slot.

    “Although we didn’t qualify in the final four, the players remain aggressive in playing basketball today. They wanted to end the season on high note and they did,” said UE head coach Boyzie Zamar, whose team was tagged as a dark horse before the 76 season started.

    “It was very painful for us but we’ll be back.”

    The Red Warriors, who didn’t field in the injured playmaker Shej Roi Sumang, avoided a huge collapse in the payoff period when the UP Fighting Maroons used a blistering 18-10 run capped by graduating big man Raul Soyud’s 10 fourth quarter points.

    Graduating swingman Lord Casajeros, who scored 11 of his 17 points in the second half, also delivered two big shots late in the fourth quarter to save the Red Warriors from the jaws of defeat.

    Along with Casajeros, it was also the last UAAP game for team captain Adi Santos, Ralf Olivares, JM Noble, JR Sumido and Jai Flores.

    6’8 hulking center Charles Mammie scattered 21 points and collected 18 rebounds to lead UE, while Ralf Olivares had 12 points along with four rebounds and three steals and Gino Jumao-as chipped in nine points.

    Samuel Marata posted 22 points to lead the Fighting Maroons, who ended Season 76 winless in 14 games, a lowly feat that they have amassed every 3 years (Season 70, Season 73 and this season).

    UP will lose the trio of Marata, Soyud and Moriah Gingerich to graduation.

    Individual Scores:

    UE (76) – Mammie 21, Casajeros 17, Olivares 12, Jumao-as 9, Alberto 7, Santos 6, Javier 4, Sumido 0, Pujante 0, Noble 0, Hernandez 0, Guion 0, Gallanza 0

    UP (73) – Marata 22, Soyud 15, Lao 10, Suarez 6, Ligad 5, Gallarza 4, Asilum 3, Wong 2, Harris 2, Ball 2, Gingerich 1, Amar 1, Paras 0, Desiderio 0

    Quarter Scores:

    20-19, 44-34, 66-55, 76-73

    Road clear for Chua return as Zamar admits he declined offer to coach Ginebra

    Road clear for Chua return as Zamar admits he declined offer to coach Ginebra
    “Yes, (Ginebra job) was offered to me on a silver platter, pero I have to protect my integrity and be honest with myself,” says Boycie Zamar said. “Ayaw ko namang talikuran yung kontrata ko sa UE. Saka let’s put it this way - I still have to learn the ropes." Jerome Ascano

    BOYCIE Zamar confirmed on Wednesday that he has turned down an offer to coach Barangay Ginebra, clearing the way for the return of Alfrancis Chua or the retention of Ato Agustin despite a dismal first season as coach of the PBA's most popular ballclub.

    Zamar, head coach of University of the East and an assistant to Agustin at Ginebra, told he has talked to San Miguel Corp. big boss Ramon S. Ang, Ginebra governor Robert Non, and team manager Chua three weeks ago informing them of his decision not to accept the offer.

    Reportedly the personal choice of Ang to coach Ginebra, Zamar said he has decided to honor his contract with UE for next season but was also honest enough to admit that he feels he is not ready for such a high-profile coaching job.

    “Yes, it was offered to me on a silver platter, pero I have to protect my integrity and be honest with myself,” Zamar said. “Ayaw ko namang talikuran yung kontrata ko sa UE. Saka let’s put it this way - I still have to learn the ropes."

    As early as July when Chua resigned over differences with former SMC sports director Noli Eala, has already reported that officials have already informed the team that Zamar had been picked to coach Ginebra next season while Agustin took over in an interim basis.

    [For full story, see Zamar next in line for Ginebra job]

    However, Zamar said he has decided to complete his "unfinished business" with the Warriors, who fell short of reaching the Final Four this season.

    “Hindi naman sa hindi ko kinuha pero sinabi ko lang kila boss RSA (Ang), Boss Robert (Non) and Coach Al (Chua) na may obligasyon pa ako sa UE,” said Zamar. “May responsibilidad pa ako sa UE at gusto ko pang matuto.”

    Zamar said Ang gave him a pat on the back after the talk.

    “Natuwa siya kasi honest daw ko. Kung iba daw yun, susunggaban agad yung trabaho,” said the 47-year old Illonggo, who will now be reuinited with his son, Paul, at the UE-Cebuana Lhuillier team in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup starting on October 24.
    “Ang sa akin naman, hindi ako pwedeng tumanggap ng tumanggap ng trabaho … kung may obligasyon pa ako sa isa,” he said with a smile.

    Asked if he is not afraid to pass up on a golden opportunity to coach the most popular team in the country, Zamar gave an honest response.

    “Sa akin, kung darating ulit 'yun, darating 'yun. Focus na lang muna ako sa unfinished business ko sa UE and hopefully make myself better,” he added.

    Zamar's decision now clears the way for the return of Chua, who was convinced to move up to the team manager's position after he resigned as coach at the end of the Philippine Cup.

    There has been a strong clamor among diehard fans for Chua's return, more so after the Gin Kings tumbled out at the quarterfinal stage of the Governors Cup in Agustin's first conference as coach.

    However, it was Agustin who has been running the team since Ginebra returned to practice early this week.

    “Ato has been running the team pa since nung nagbalik ensayo sila,” said Non. “Wala namang changes.”
