    NCAA: CSB holds on to beat struggling Arellano

    MANILA, Philippines — After a string of close losses, College of St. Benilde has finally built a winning streak.

    The Blazers added misery to slumping Arellano Chiefs, 69-62, Monday as the NCAA Season 89 men’s basketball tournament resumed from a two-week break at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Swingman Mark Romero came through anew for CSB with 18 points to lead three other Blazer in double-digit scoring.

    Sharp-shooting Fons Saavedra, burly two-guard Paolo Taha and flashy guard Jonathan Grey added 12 points apiece for the Blazers, who held on for their second straight win after losing five very close games in a row.

    St. Benilde led by nine, 64-55, with only 2:33 left before Arellano trimmed it to three, 61-64, a minute later as the Blazers were back into a perilous situation where they blow a big lead and lose.

    But not this time as CSB seemed to have learned through pain as it managed to cling on to its lead and win — dealing Arellano a similar 2-5 record.

    The Chiefs, who came in as preseason favorites but have struggled, were led by Prince Caperal’s game-high 20 points. James Forrester chipped in 10 points.

    The league went on a break to give way to the just concluded 27th FIBA Asia men’s Championship, where host Philippines broke through for a silver medal finish and a ticket to the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain.

    Altas survive Blazers in OT

    Perpetual Help had an answer to every shot that St. Benilde nailed in an overtime to remember, hacking out a thrilling 90-89 triumph last night to gain a share of second spot in the 89th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Juneric Baloria and Nosa Omorogbe delivered 25 and 22 points, respectively, but it was Chris Elopre who fired the decisive basket with 15 seconds left in overtime that lifted the Altas to a 7-2 record, in a tie with idle San Beda.

    The Blazers again fell short in another tight game, losing for the sixth time in nine outings, although Jonathan Grey and Mark Romero did their part in pushing the Altas to the limit with explosive performances with 29 and 25 points, respectively.

    The Lyceum Pirates earlier survived a fourth-quarter slump to repulse the San Sebastian Stags, 60-55, and snap a five-game losing slide and end the first round with a 3-6 record.

    The Pirates entered the final period with a 58-33 lead but were held to a season-low two points before pinning a fourth loss in nine games on the Stags.

    “It felt like the other team was winning by the end of the game,” said Lyceum coach Bonnie Tan, whose team won for the first time since July 6, when it dumped Mapua, 74-59.

    Almost lost in the din of the bizarre ending was the 19-point explosion of Wilson Baltazar, Lyceum’s struggling shooter, who found his range with a 5-of-11 clip from beyond the arc.

    Baltazar did the damage in the middle quarters, helping the Pirates erect a 27-point buffer at 58-31 near the end of the third period.

    The scores:

    First Game

    LYCEUM 60—Baltazar 19, Lacastesantos 12, Taladua 9, Mendoza 6, Mbomiko 4, Alanes 3, Evangelista 2, Ambohot 2, Ko 2, Garcia 1, Soliman 0, Lesmoras 0.

    SAN SEBASTIAN 55—Perez 16, Ortuoste 9, Guinto 8, Dela Cruz 7, Tano 6, De Vera 5, Gusi 2, Trinidad 2, Rebollos 0, Vergara 0, Aquino 0, Magno 0.

    Quarters: 18-4, 36-21, 58-33, 60-55

    Second Game

    PERPETUAL 90—Baloria 25, Omorogbe 22, Arboleda 19, Alano 19, Elopre 4, Oliveria 1, Dizon 0, Thompson 0, Bantayan 0, Paulino 0, Jolangcob 0, Bitoy 0.

    ST. BENILDE 89—Grey 29, Romero 25, Taha 14, Saavedra 9, Bartolo 8, Jonson 3, Ongteco 1, Sinco 0, Argamino 0, Garcia 0, Deles 0.
    Quarters: 24-13, 45-42, 60-62, 80-80, 90-89 (OT)

    Elopre layup lifts Altas over Blazers in OT

    By Mark Giongco

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    9:27 pm | Monday, August 26th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines – Chris Elopre scored the game-winning layup as Perpetual Help became the latest team to deal College of St. Benilde another heartbreaking loss 90-89 in overtime Monday night in the NCAA Season 89 at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Elopre only had four points but all of it came in the extra session including a lay in with 14.7 ticks left as the Altas chalked up their seventh win in nine starts.

    “Masarap yung feeling pero mabigat din sa dibdib kasi ang laki ng lamang namin tapos humabol. Buti na lang yung mga players ko matibay yung loob,” said Perpetual Help coach Aric del Rosario, whose team blew a 16-point lead, 39-23, late in the second quarter.

    “Yung tira ko, hindi ako yon, si God yon,” said the graduating guard Elopre, who opened up the extra period with a basket, 82-80.

    The Altas trailed by four in the final 1:16 of regulation after back-to-back triples by Mark Romero. They trailed again, 88-89, after an undergoal stab by Paolo Taha with 36.4 seconds remaining.

    But on both times, Perpetual Help managed to respond.

    Juneric Baloria had 25 points, including a basket to cut CSB’s lead down to two, 80-78. Justine Alano added 19, two of which tied the game at 80, with 44 ticks to go.

    Nosa Omorogbe also gave St. Benilde problems with 22 points and 12 rebounds.

    The Blazers started flat before getting their groove with Jonathan Grey exploding for 23 points in the first half, 21 in the second quarter alone to lead a 19-6 run to close the first half.

    Grey, who finished with 29 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the field, cooled off in the second half but Mark Romero took over from there.

    Romero scored all of his 25 points in the second half and overtime including his fourth triple that made it, 83-82, with 4:00 left in OT.

    Romero though, missed an open trey from the left wing with 5.5 seconds left before Luis Cinco threw the ball away off the inbound pass as time ran out.

    Harold Arboleda also produced quite a performance for Perpetual Help with 19 points and 16 rebounds.

    The Blazers slid to 3-6 after winning three in a row with all of their losses just two points or less.

    CSB ‘slowly maturing’ after close win over JRU, says coach

    MANILA, Philippines — Showing signs of maturity, College of St. Benilde kept its composure down the stretch to eke out a 57-55 win over Jose Rizal University in the NCAA Season 89 men’s basketball tournament Monday night at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    The Blazers have now won four out of their last five games after a series of sorry losses to move just a game behind fourth place still held by the Heavy Bombers, who slipped to 5-5.

    “Siguro marami kaming babawian na games dito sa second round but I must say that I think that we’re learning from our mistakes,” said CSB head coach Gabby Velasco, whose squad avenged its two-point overtime loss to JRU in the first round.

    Mark Romero led St. Benilde with 15 points while Jonathan Grey made big plays in the fourth quarter that also keyed in the Blazers win.

    Grey side stepped his way for a basket before setting up Robert Bartolo seconds later to give the Blazers a 55-50 cushion with 2:11 remaining.

    Philip Paniamogan nailed a triple to cut JRU’s deficit to one, 55-56, after RJ Argamino split his charities with 16.7 seconds left.

    Romero also made one-of-two at the line to extend CSB’s edge to two before Michael Mabulac missed a well-contested baseline attempt as the buzzer sounded.

    “Like I said, I tried to instill into their minds how to handle situations like that. Clear na sa mind nila. Slowly, we’re maturing and learning,” added Velasco.

    The Blazers won despite missing the services of their reliable rookie Fons Saavedra, who sprained his ankle during practice Sunday.

    Paniamogan paced JRU with 19 points on four triples as starting point guard Paolo Pontejos failed to score a single point in 13 minutes.

    Altas nose out Chiefs, tie Lions

    By Cedelf P. Tupas

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    10:33 pm | Monday, September 2nd, 2013

    It was Harold Arboleda’s turn to shine for Perpetual Help last night.

    Arboleda knocked in two pressure-packed free throws with 6.8 seconds remaining as the Altas nipped the Arellano Chiefs, 82-80, and tied the idle defending champion San Beda Red Lions for second place in the 89th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Arellano actually had a chance to forge overtime with 1.8 seconds left, but AJ Serjue missed the front end of his two foul shots. He intentionally missed his second free throw hoping to turn the rebound into a followup basket, but the ball went out of bounds.

    Arboleda was fouled by Ralph Salcedo while going for an offensive rebound, then nailed both attempts as the Altas rose to 8-2 like San Beda.

    Arellano lost for the sixth time in its last seven games and fell into a share of eighth spot with Lyceum with a 3-7 card.

    St. Benilde also hacked out a close 57-55 decision over Jose Rizal in the second game and improved to 4-6. The Bombers took their fifth loss in 10 games.

    Playing in the shadows of more explosive teammates like Nosa Omorogbe and Juneric Baloria, Arboleda proved his worth for the Altas by norming 12.4 rebounds an outing in the first round.

    “I’m so happy for him (Arboleda) because he’s done almost everything for us and now he’s also helped us with his offense,” said Omorogbe, who topscored for the Altas with 26 points and also grabbed 12 boards.

    The game was close throughout with no team leading by more than eight points and both teams battling to eight lead changes.

    “We need these close games because we learn a lot from them,” said Altas coach Aric Del Rosario. “We know we’re going to need the experience when we go farther in the tournament.”

    The Altas also got a lift from Scott Thompson who bucked a hurting back to tally 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting.

    Keith Agovida poured 15 of his season-high 17 points in the second half to lead the Chiefs, who missed forward James Forrester.

    The scores:

    First Game

    PERPETUAL HELP 82—Omorogbe 26, Baloria 14, Thompson 11, Arboleda 9, Alano 9, Jolangcob 6m Elopre 3, Dizon 2, Bitoy 2, Oliveria 0, Ylagan 0, Bantayan 0, Lucente 0.

    ARELLANO 80—Agovida 17, Hernandez 16, Caperal 14, Pinto 12, Nicholls 5, Salcedo 4, Bangga 4, Serjue 4, Jalalon 3, Gumaru 1, Cadavis 0.

    Quarters: 21-19, 40-39, 59-53, 82-80

    Second Game

    ST. BENILDE 57—Romero 15, Bartolo 8, Garcia 8, Grey 8, Taha 7, Argamino 6, Sinco 2, Deles 2, Ongteco 1.

    JRU 55—Paniamogan 19, Mabulac 11, Balagtas 8, Lasquety 6, Grospe 5, Benavides 4, Sanchez 2, Pontejos 0, Juanico 0, Dela Paz 0, Diego 0.

    Altas turn back pesky Blazers

    By Cedelf P. Tupas

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    11:39 pm | Thursday, September 12th, 2013

    Perpetual Help survived St. Benilde’s late onslaught and escaped with a 68-64 triumph last night to stay within striking distance of the leaders in the 89th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Rookie Juneric Baloria and Scott Thompson buried clutch free throws inside the last 35 seconds as the Altas nailed their ninth win in 12 games and firmed up their hold of third spot.

    The Altas nearly wasted a nine-point lead as the Blazers mounted a searing rally capped by a Mark Romero triple that tied the game at 64 heading into the final 51 seconds.

    The ending followed a familiar script for the Blazers, who again lost a game decided in the final seconds and dropped to seventh spot with a 5-7 card. St. Benilde has lost seven games by a combined 11 points.

    In the first game, John Pinto knocked in a fadeaway jumper with 1.7 seconds left to lift Arellano to a thrilling 76-75 win over Lyceum.

    Pinto’s shot over the outstretched arms of Jeremiah Taladua capped a sensational fightback by the Chiefs, who erased a seven-point deficit in the last 2:50 and notched only their fourth victory in 12 games.

    Prince Caperal also came up with a monster performance for the Chiefs, finishing with 25 points and 16 rebounds.

    Pinto shone in the final period where he fired 11 of his 15 points.

    “It was a miracle shot,” Pinto said. “The play was for Prince, but they (Pirates) sagged on him, so I had to create my own shot.”

    The scores:

    First Game

    ARELLANO 76—Caperal 25, Pinto 15, Agovida 11, Salcedo 8, Forrester 8, Hernandez 5, Margallo 4, Gumaru 0, Jalalon 0, Nicholls 0, Bangga 0, Serjue 0, Cadavis 0.

    LYCEUM 75—Mbomiko 17, Zamora 15, Ko 15, Baltazar 6, Francisco 6, Ambohot 6, Lesmoras 4, Lacastesantos 3, Azores 2, Mendoza 1.

    Quarters: 15-14, 31-31, 55-55, 76-75

    Second Game

    PERPETUAL 68—Baloria 18, Arboleda 15, Omorogbe 14, Alano 11, Thompson 6, Ylagan 2, Elopre 2, Oliveria 0, Dizon 0, Jolangcob 0.

    ST. BENILDE 64—Taha 17, Romero 12, Bartolo 11, Garcia 7, Saavedra 5, Argamino 5, Grey 5, Ongteco 2.

    Quick-fire San Beda Red Lions hammer Blazers to regain NCAA solo lead

    From: Karlo Sacamos

    September 19, 2013, 08:33 pm

    San Beda wasted no time putting the outcome beyond doubt this time.

    Taken to the limit in their first meeting, the Red Lions coasted to a 65-46 victory over College of St. Benilde on Thursday to claim the provisional lead in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.

    The three-time defending champion Lions underscored their status as the league’s best defensive team, limiting the listless Blazers to a measly two points in the first quarter where they zoomed to a 23-point lead that practically took the fight out of their opponents.

    The Lions thus notched an 11th triumph in 13 games that put them a half-game ahead of archrival Letran.

    “We had an aggressive start and it’s all a team effort,” said Lions coach Boyet Fernandez, whose wards had to lean on the buzzer-beating alley-oop finished by Art dela Cruz to escape with a 71-70 win over the Blazers in the first round.

    Dela Cruz stood at the forefront of the Lions onslaught anew as he emerged as the lone double-digit scorer with 14 points, while four others scored at least seven points.

    The Blazers dropped to a 5-8 win-loss card in seventh place.

    In one of the worst scoring outputs in a quarter in recent memory, the Blazers failed to make any of their 14 field goal attempts in the first period, with all their two points coming from the charity stripe by Jonathan Grey.

    Benilde, which shot just 29 percent from the field overall, tried to make a comeback, but came no closer than 19 points.

    The scores:

    SBC (65) – Dela Cruz 14, Adeogun 8, Ludovice 8, Koga 7, Pascual 7, Dela Rosa 5, Mendoza 4, Sara 3, Abarcar 2, A. Semerad 2, Amer 2, Abatayo 2, D. Semerad 1, Bonsubre 0, Villaruz 0.

    CSB (46) – Romero 12, Taha 10, Sinco 7, Grey 7, Bartolo 5, Ongteco 5, Jonson 0, Nayve 0, Saavedra 0, Argamino 0, Carlos 0, Garcia 0, Deles 0

    Quarterscores: 25-2, 34-12, 48-29, 65-46

    Generals slip past Blazers

    Bombers clobber Cardinals

    By June Navarro

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    10:57 pm | Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

    John Marco Tayongtong dropped a layup with 1.2 seconds remaining as Emilio Aguinaldo College nipped College of St. Benilde, 85-83, to boost its Final Four hopes in the 89th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    Tayongtong eluded Travis Jonson then banked in the winner off Mark Romero as the Generals raised their record to 8-7, just off the 8-6 mark of the idle fourth-running San Sebastian.

    “They were attacking us inside the paint because our big men were in foul trouble. But again, John bailed us out,” said head coach Gerry Esplana as EAC won for the fourth time in five outings.

    The Blazers absorbed a third straight defeat, their ninth overall in 14 games.

    Defending champion San Beda (13-2) has already secured a semifinal slot with Letran (11-3) and Perpetual Help (11-5) assured of the other qualifying berths.

    Tayongtong repeated his heroics in their first-round encounter with the Blazers, where he also single-handedly carried the Generals in the closing minutes.

    The 5-foot-6 court general picked up where Cameroonian Cebric Happi Noube left off, scoring eight of his 17 points in the fourth quarter capped by a decisive layup.

    Noube finished with 20 points but was saddled by fouls late in the third when the Blazers, led by Paolo Taha’s incursions, hit 13 free throws in the period.

    Taha, who had nine free throws during that span, also had 20 points before cramps hit him near the end of the fourth.

    In the second game, Jose Rizal University kept its semis bid alive after a 73-56 whipping of also-ran Mapua.

    The Bombers rose to 6-8 while dealing the Cardinals their 14th loss in 15 outings.
