    Chiefs shock Lions on Pinto clutch hits

    By Joey Villar

    (The Philippine Star) | Updated May 23, 2013 - 12:00am

    Games tomorrow

    12:45 p.m. – UST vs Lyceum

    2:30 p.m. – Adamson vs UP

    4:15 p.m. – FEU vs St. Benilde

    MANILA, Philippines - Nard Pinto fired nine of his 17 points in the fourth quarter as Arellano U pulled off a shock 67-66 victory over fancied NCAA champion San Beda to close in on a quarterfinal berth in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Cup Premier Cup at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.

    Pinto, a sophomore out of Zamboanga City, took charge for the Chiefs’ fiery windup, hitting clutch baskets as the Legarda-based squad finally beat San Beda after losing all their eight face-offs in the last four NCAA seasons.

    “The players made it happen and Nard (Pinto) is our go-to guy and the leader of this team and his effort today opened the door for us to get this win,” said Arellano U coach Koy Banal, who steered San Beda to the 2006 NCAA title before Frankie Lim took over.

    The victory was the Chiefs’ fifth against two losses as they moved within a win from clinching the second of four quarterfinal berths in Group A paced by National U with an 8-0 mark.

    The Lions fell to joint third with the idle Adamson Falcons at 3-2.

    Rome dela Rosa and Baser Amer paced San Beda with 14 and 13 points, respectively, but the Mendiola-based school failed to draw a strong effort from Nigerian Ola Adeogun, who groped for form and finish with only eight points and six rebounds in only 15 minutes of action.

    University of the East likewise inched closer to the quarters as it foiled Lyceum, 82-72, for a 5-2 slate.

    The Warriors actually struggled from the line and fell by as many as 12 points in the third quarter but made a strong charge in the fourth quarter to fashion out the win.

    “It’s all mental, missing free throws. I just really hate it seeing my players missing free throws,” said UE coach Boycie Zamar.

    Lyceum fell to its fifth straight loss.

    I'm not very sure, but isn't Pinto from Davao City? He used to play with Holy Child of Davao City. The same school where Baser Amer, Van Abatayo, Asilum and Gavia came from.

    ‘Losers’ no more as UE deals La Salle first setback in Filoil Flying V

    By Celest R. Flores

    7:32 pm | Saturday, May 25th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines – University of the East to put the only blemish on La Salle’s record so far, chalking up a 60-53 triumph on Saturday in the 2013 Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at the Arena in San Juan.

    While both teams struggled to pick it up offensively as neither managed to churn out more than 13 in the second and third quarters, the Red Warriors found the needed push to peel away.

    “You have to credit it to the players. They used to be losers, but now, in their own sense, they’re winners. Though its just the pre-season, it’s a big win for us, we have everything to gain,” said head coach Boyzie Zamar.

    UE broke off from a 46-all deadlock over five minutes left to play, starting with a bucket by Roi Sumang — who was once again the spark — and a triple by Jay-ar Sumido, and the Red Warriors kept rolling from there.

    It also helped UE’s cause when it pestered La Salle into commiting 28 turnovers, and then clamping down on the Green Archers on the break.

    But after the lead has been pushed the lead to six, Jeron Teng conjured the next four points for the Green Archers before a triple by Gab Reyes countered a nifty slash move by Chris Javier.

    That was the last time La Salle would score, though, after inching in, 53-54, with 1:05 left as Sumang, UE’s explosive guard, canned two tough jumpers in the next 40 seconds to seal the win.

    Sumang, scoreless in the third quarter, scored half of his total 12 points when the Red Warriors needed it most. Charles Mammie had a game-best 13 points.

    “And they’re back on their feet, they’re ready to fight again just like a real warriors,” said Zamar, whose arrival in UE has injected a new mindset.

    The Red Warriors barged into the quarterfinals of Group B, while the Green Archers — whose five game winning streak was snapped — will have to earn more wins to advance.

    Norbert Torres was the lone player from the La salle who finished in double-digits points with 12 as Jeron Teng only finished with eight on 5-of-13 shooting.

    FEU’s Romeo ‘suspended indefinitely’, says coach

    By Celest R. Flores

    4:24 pm | Saturday, May 25th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines – In an effort to teach Terrence Romeo the “value of humility,” Far Eastern University has decided to suspend the explosive guard “indefinitely.”

    Romeo was only in street clothes in the Tamaraws’ 74-81 setback to St. Benilde on Friday in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup, but joined the team on the bench and in the dugout.

    When asked why Romeo did not suit up, Tamaraws’ head coach Nash Racela told reporters that, “he’s on indefinite suspension for something that he did previously.”

    Racela said they decided upon the suspension after FEU’s game versus San Beda in the pre-season tournament last week, where Romeo came late for the game.

    “It was something after that,” said Racela, who did not elaborate. “It’s something that we see as correctible.”

    “We do things to teach the players. We’re all after their good. We’re just teaching him the value of humility,” he also said.

    The soft-spoken Tamaraws’ mentor cleared, though, that the sanction had nothing to do with Romeo’s performance with Big Chill, which ousted Fruitas — FEU’s team in the PBA D-League — last Thursday in the quarterfinals.

    But Racela hinted that Romeo might be back in action sooner, than later.

    “I was thinking it might be long but with the way things developed the past 2-3 days, the way I see it, it’s going to be short. And the way I see it, it seems there’s an effort on his part to change,” said Racela.

    The Tamaraws spent more than hour after the game in the locker room, where they took the chance to deal with their differences.

    “With the loss, it opened things for the team because I hear a lot of things from them, their relationship with each other. Now it’s out in the open. But we’re very positive,” said Racela.

    Lions, Archers gain QF

    San Beda and La Salle turned it up in the second half to down their respective rivals and clinch quarterfinal slots in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup yesterday at Filoil Flying V Arena.

    Francis Abarcar unloaded 22 points in 22 minutes as the Red Lions crushed St. Benilde, 74-58, to improve to solo third at 5-2 in Group A.

    Almond Vosotros also fueled a late breakaway that boosted the Green Archers past Letran, 64-45, and gave La Salle a share of the Group B lead at 6-1.

    “I think we did a good job in the second half,” said La Salle coach Gee Abanilla. “In the first half we were missing a lot of open shots and free throws. It was just lack of concentration on our part. But by the second half, we were moving the ball well.”

    Vosotros finished with a team-high 16 points, highlighted by three straight triples in the fourth quarter that gave the Archers a huge 55-39 advantage from a slim 30-25 halftime edge.

    La Salle and San Beda’s wins towed idle teams Adamson (4-2) and University of Santo Tomas (4-3) to the quarterfinals. The other early quarterfinalists are National University (8-0) and Arellano (6-2) in Group A and Group B’s Ateneo (6-1) and University of the East (5-2).

    Baser Amer added 15 points and six rebounds for the Red Lions, who outscored the Blazers, 16-6, in the third period to turn a 39-38 lead to 55-44.

    Jeron Teng (11 points) and Norbert Torres (seven points, 12 rebounds) also helped the Archers rebound from an upset loss to University of the East, 53-60, last week.

    “The loss to UE was hard to swallow,” said Abanilla. “We used that loss to further improve ourselves.”

    Emilio Aguinaldo College picked up its first win by nipping Lyceum, 85-82.

    The scores:

    First Game

    SAN BEDA 74—Abarcar 22, Amer 15, Koga 10, Adeogun 10, Semerad D. 6, Dela Rosa 4, Semerad A. 3, Pascual 2, Sara 2, Mendoza 0, Bonsubre 0.

    ST. BENILDE 58—Romero 19, Ongtengco 10, Sinco 8, Grey 5, Argamino 5, Taha 4, Saavedra 3, Jonson 2, Bartolo 1, Carlos 1, Garcia 0.

    Quarters: 19-19, 39-38, 55-44, 74-58

    LETRAN 45—Cruz 10, Gabawan 8, Nambatac 7, Castro 7, Luib 4, Ruaya 3, Publico 2, Almazan 2, Almario 2, Pantin 0.

    Eagles repulse Archers again

    KIEFER Ravena erupted for 31 points as Ateneo turned back fierce rival La Salle, 78-70, yesterday and then announced its withdrawal due to player injuries from the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at Filoil Flying V Arena.

    Fresh from their overseas training, the Blue Eagles came out firing early and pulled away by as many as 20 points, 55-35, in the second half despite missing five men with various injuries.

    The Eagles, who will be gunning for a sixth straight UAAP championship this season, were down to 10 men with big men Kris Porter (knee), JP Erram (MCL) and Gideon Babilonia (shoulder), and Gwynne Capacio (hamstring) and Von Pessumal (fractured finger) in sick bay.

    “I think we can’t go on playing like this, I can’t just play with 10 players all the time,” said Ateneo coach Bo Perasol.
    “Maybe I can sustain that for a game but I don’t think we can sustain that for half a season.”

    “The coaching staff feels if we continue to play 10 players in a game it could mean more injuries,” added Ateneo athletic director Ricky Palou.

    Ateneo’s decision to drop out ceded the top spot in Group B to University of the East, which wound up tied with La Salle at 6-2 but had a higher quotient.

    Earlier, Rome dela Rosa drilled 18 points as San Beda outlasted Adamson, 75-68, to clinch the third spot in Group A with a 6-2 record in the other game.

    Arthur dela Cruz and Baser Amer also teamed up for 25 markers for the Lions, who survived the Falcons’ 13-4 rally in the last four minutes.

    Knights gain

    Eliminated Letran also gained from the Ateneo pullout as league officials picked the Knights (4-4) to complete the Group A quarterfinal cast.

    The quarterfinal round fires off tomorrow with Arellano University tangling with University of Santo Tomas in the 2 p.m. opener.

    University of the East will take on Adamson University in the 4 p.m. main match.

    The scores:

    First Game

    SAN BEDA 75—Dela Rosa 18, Dela Cruz 13, Amer 12, Adeogun 10, A. Semerad 7, Abarcar 4, Pascual 4, Sara 3, Koga 2, Mendoza 2, D. Semerad 0, Ludovice 0, Villaruz 0.

    ADAMSON 68—Cruz 15, Cabrera 10, Petilos 10, Brondial 8, Sewa 7, Rios 6, Monteclaro 4, Abrigo 4, IŮigo 2, Agustin 2, Ochea 0, Cabigas 0.

    Quarters: 18-12, 29-36, 58-47, 75-68

    Second Game

    ATENEO 78—Ravena 31, Tiongson 15, Golla 12, Asistio 6, Tolentino 5, Newsome 4, Elorde 3, Buenafe 2, Murphy 0, Lim 0.

    LA SALLE 70—Perkins 15, Vosotros 14, Teng 14, T. Torres 9, Van Opstal 9, N. Torres 7, Dela Paz 2, Bolick 0, Reyes 0, Salem 0.

    Quarters: 24-15, 42-33, 63-51, 78-70

    UE, Arellano begin Filoil quarterfinal bid today

    By Jasmine W. Payo

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    9:46 pm | Sunday, June 2nd, 2013

    DESPITE a higher seeding, University of the East and Arellano know how dangerous their opponents can be in the Round of Eight of the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup today.

    The Warriors, who clinched the No. 1 spot following the unexpected withdrawal of injury-depleted Ateneo, clash with Adamson in the knockout quarterfinals at 4 p.m. at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    The Chiefs, a revelation in the tournament, tackle University of Santo Tomas at 2 p.m.

    Roi Sumang, Chris Javier and Charles Mammie have led the Warriors’ strong run, which included a 60-53 upset of La Salle in the eliminations.

    “These players used to be losers, so even if it’s the preseason, this is important for us,” coach Boycie Zamar said of his Warriors, who finished near the bottom in the last UAAP season.

    The Warriors wound up tied with La Salle at 6-2, behind Ateneo’s 7-1 record in Group B.

    But the Warriors grabbed the top spot over the Green Archers due to a higher quotient after the Blue Eagles decided to drop out.

    “Our other players have been stepping up, so it’s just a matter of consistency,” coach Leo Austria said of his Falcons (5-3).

    The Chiefs also struggled at eighth place in last year’s NCAA yet pulled off surprises for a second-best 6-2 slate in Group A.

    “We welcome that,” Arellano coach Koy Banal said as the Chiefs earned the favorites’ tag. “It means that we’re gaining respect. It’s good because it will be a morale-booster for us.”

    Unbeaten National University (8-0) will see action at 2 p.m. on Wednesday against Letran (4-4), which gained a second lease on life after Ateneo’s pullout. NCAA champion San Beda (6-2) and La Salle (6-2) collide in the last quarterfinal match at 4 p.m. on the same day.

    Warriors, Tigers gain Final 4, forge KO duel

    By Jasmine W. Payo

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    11:32 pm | Monday, June 3rd, 2013

    Sustaining its surprise run, University of the East rolled past Adamson, 66-58, yesterday to clinch a Final Four berth in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at Filoil Flying V Arena.

    Roi Sumang pumped in 18 points, including six in a 14-4 windup, to lead UE to the next round where the Warriors will face the University of Santo Tomas Tigers.

    The Tigers nailed the first semifinal berth after toppling higher-seeded Arellano, 83-73, in the other knockout quarterfinal match.

    “We have everything to gain,” UE coach Boycie Zamar said of his Warriors, who finished near bottom in last season’s UAAP yet clinched the No. 1 spot in Group B with a 6-2 record.

    “We don’t have the advantage here, because remember, we were seventh in the UAAP. So this win is a good motivation for us.”

    Chris Javier added 11 points for the Warriors, who had a fiery 13-0 start before fending off the Falcons’ persistent rallies.

    Jeric Teng unloaded 23 points and Karim Abdul had a double-double of 18 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Tigers, who finished third in Group B with a 5-3 record.

    “The players refused to lose,” said UST coach Pido Jarencio. “It was a matter of pride. The experience of the players also showed.”

    UST guard Ed Daquioag also stepped up in the absence of injured starting guard Clark Bautista by posting a double-double of 11 points and 10 boards.

    Ranked second at 6-2 in Group A, the Chiefs struggled minus top gunner James Forrester, who sat it out due to a knee injury.

    Zamar said he is impressed with the endurance of his Warriors, who also competed in a recent provincial tournament.

    “We’re very tired,” said Zamar. “But we don’t want to use that as an excuse. I told them we still have to play as a team. And considering that Adamson has been together for several years already, it’s an achievement for us that we were there fighting.”

    The Falcons, led by Rodney Brondial, opened the final period with an 11-0 blast for a 54-52 lead. But the Warriors responded with an 8-0 tear anchored on Sumang to regain the advantage, 60-54, then held the Falcons to just a couple of baskets in the last five minutes.

    The scores:

    First Game

    UST 83—Teng 23, Abdul 18, Ferrer 14, Daquioag 11, Pe 6, Mariano 5, Lo 3, So 2, Hainga 1, Marata 0, Tan 0, Lao 0, Macasaet 0.

    ARELLANO 73—Pinto 13, Bangga 10, Hernandez 8, Nicholls 8, Jalalom 7, Salcedo 5, Enriquez 4, Margallo 3, Gumaru 3, Caperal 2, Cadavis 2.

    Quarters: 26-17, 40-37, 62-53, 83-73

    Second Game

    UE 66—Sumang 18, Javier 11, Sumido 9, Noble 6, Mammie 6, Flores 5, Olivarez 4, Jumao-as 4, Santos 3, Casajeros 0, Bonleon 0, Guion 0, Olayon 0.

    ADAMSON 58—Brondial 19, Sewa 12, Cabrera 9, Cruz 6, Petilos 6, IŮigo 3, Rios 2, Agustin 1, Monteclaro 0, Bernabe 0, Abrigo 0, Mendoza 0, Ochea 0.

    Quarters: 22-12, 32-32, 52-43, 66-58

    Without looking at the stats, Sumang appeared very efficient in this game. There were very few forced and scored right when he should while setting up his teammates. Sumido and Oliverez may have scored just 13 points between them but they constantly put the Falcons' defense on its heels by constantly probing. But Mammie was a disappointment in this game. He kept taunting Sewa but all he did was remind me of Bolick versus Kiefer. He just made a complete ass of himself. Not content with sneaking in an albow or a forearm, he also kneed Sewa a dozen times. I also saw him poke Sewa from behind. If not for their backcourt, which, I think, will be the best in the UAAP, they would have been beaten by the Falcons as Brondial made mincemeat of anybody while Sewa provided solid support.
