    Eagles clip Falcons, climb to fifth spot

    Posted on Sunday Aug 25th at 5:27pm

    MANILA, Philippines --After a gloomy start, the Ateneo Blue Eagles are back in the hunt for a six-peat.

    The Eagles took their fifth win in the last six games staving off a furious fourth quarter rally from the Adamson Falcons to hack out a 79-66 victory in the 76th season of the UAAP men's basketball tourney at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Sunday.

    Kiefer Ravena and Ryan Buenafe starred for the Blue Eagles chipping 18 points apiece to improve their record 5-4 win-loss card and moved closer to the top four teams.

    "When Adamson made a huge run in the fourth quarter, I was holding on to my timeout because I wanted them to experience those kind of situations and see how they would react," said Ateneo coach Bo Perasol.

    "I have to commend the boys because they stepped up and we won but we're still behind in the standings so this win was important to us," he added.

    Ateneo started the second half strong with a whopping 14-1 run capped by a Buenafe runner at the 5:09 markto take a 47-28 lead.

    The Blue Eagles kept on pounding on the hapless Falcons and took a huge 57-32 lead entering the payoff period, outscoring their counterparts 24-6 in the third quarter.

    Adamson responded in a big way midway of the fourth canto with a blistering 19-0 blast to cut the deficit down 59-51 after Ingrid Sewa completed a 3-point play.

    Ravena though had other things in mind and scored eight of the next 12 points for the Blue Eagles to give them their composure back and extend their lead 71-59 with 2:55 remaining.

    Buenafe virtually knocked the wind out of the Falcons flickering hopes with a back-breaking three-pointer to beat the shot clock buzzer giving Ateneo a comfortable 74-61 advantage with 1:56 remaining.

    "Adamson is a very capable team they showed it especially in the fourth quarter if not for the 20 point lead it would've been a different story," said Ravena.

    "I have to commend my teammates because they did the little things pero mali yung nag relax kami sa huli we have to take away that habit," he added.

    Adamson fell short of their furious rally and committed crucial turnovers down the stretch to bow out but not with a gallant effort dropping to 3-7 ahead of cellar dweller UP.

    Ingrid Sewa led the Falcons with 17 points while Jansen Rios, Rodney Brondial and Jericho Cruz scored 14 points each.

    Ateneo used a balance scoring effort in the first half with nine player contributing to take a 33-26 at the break.

    Awesome Eagles destroy Tams

    Ateneo has turned from a struggling defending champion to a dangerous contender yet again.

    A sizzling Ateneo squad broke loose early and the Blue Eagles went on to overwhelm the Far Eastern Tamaraws, 92-73, for their fifth straight victory in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Juami Tiongson and Kiefer Ravena fueled a dominant start where the Eagles shot nearly 60 percent from the field in the first half and built a 23-point spread, 51-28, at the break.

    The surprise blowout win pushed Ateneo to a share of third with arch rival La Salle at 6-4, a huge turnaround from a 0-3 start in its bid for a sixth straight crown.

    “The kind of winning mentality that Ateneo had in previous years is coming into play now,” said Ateneo coach Bo Perasol. “I believe that’s what’s happening, and of course, there’s our emphasis on making stops.”

    In the second game, University of Santo Tomas arrested a three-game slide with an 80-67 blasting of Adamson.

    Karim Abdul collected 19 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks while Ed Daquioag and Aljon Mariano sparked the Tigers’ pivotal fourth-quarter breakaway.

    “This season has been disappointing because we have so many injuries,” said coach Pido Jarencio as his Tigers remained in sixth place with a 5-5 record.

    UST top gunner Jeric Teng, who sat out anew due to a latest injury on his hamstring, had been listed as “day-to-day.”

    Tiongson drilled 20 points built on a 7-of-10 shooting clip and Ravena added 18 points, nine boards and five assists to lead the Eagles, who spoiled the Tamaraws’ bid to secure at least a playoff for a Final Four slot.

    “The significance of this win is that now we’re in the top four,” said Perasol, who still called the shots despite a recent kidney stone surgery.

    The scores:

    First Game

    ATENEO 92—Tiongson 20, Ravena 18, Newsome 11, Tolentino 9, Golla 9, Buenafe 9, Pessumal 5, Elorde 5, Capacio 4, Erram 2, Murphy 0, Enriquez 0, Asuncion 0, Asistio 0.

    FEU 73—Romeo 19, Garcia 11, Tolomia 9, Pogoy 9, Hargrove 6, Belo 6, Jose 5, Iņigo 3, Cruz 3, Lee Yu 2, Sentcheu 0, Mendoza 0, Luz 0, Dennison 0, Delfinado 0, Aguilon 0.

    Quarters: 26-11, 51-28, 73-45, 92-73

    Second Game

    UST 80—Abdul 19, Daquioag 17, Mariano 16, Lo 8, Ferrer 8, Bautista 6, Sheriff 4, Hainga 2, Pe 0.

    ADAMSON 67—Brondial 15, Cruz 13, Trollano 12, Rios 12, Sewa 6, Cabrera 5, Monteclaro 2, Iņigo 2, Petilos 0, Julkipli 0, Agustin 0, Abrigo 0.

    Quarters: 15-18, 31-30, 51-47, 80-67

    Sa totoo lang, ys. I also noticed those coaches. Medyo off-line nga kung kumilos. They just do not leave the instructions with Coach Leo. They go talking to the players during timeouts. I just hope hindi malito yung mga players. Medyo eyesore kasi. I wonder who those short assistant coaches are???

    REGAINING his fiery form, Terrence Romeo erupted for a season-best 32 points as Far Eastern University drubbed Adamson, 92-80, yesterday to barge into the Final Four of the UAAP men’s basketball tournament at Mall of Asia Arena.

    Romeo got off to a sizzling start, dropping 19 points in the first two quarters before Mac Belo and RR Garcia starred in a strong finish that sent the Tamaraws to their ninth victory in 13 games

    “We’re not relieved because we know our job isn’t over,” said coach Nash Racela after his Tamaraws joined National University (9-3) in the semifinals.

    “Our initial goal was just to make it to the Final Four. It’s within our reach and all we had to do was get it. Today, we made a major step toward our eventual goal.”

    Belo poured in 18 points, including seven straight to spark a 19-5 outburst that gave the Tamaraws an 18-point spread in the third period, 63-45, after a narrow 44-40 halftime lead.

    Earlier, Aljon Mariano fueled a second-half breakaway as University of Santo Tomas roared to a 63-39 rout of a poor-shooting University of the Philippines.

    Mariano finished with a double-double of 18 points, 12 coming in the second half, and 10 rebounds in the win that gave the Tigers solo fourth at 7-5.

    “We still have a long way to go so we can’t relax,” coach Pido Jarencio said of his Tigers, who are tightly battling for the remaining two semifinal slots with La Salle, Ateneo and University of the East.

    Romeo, one of only four players in the last 10 years to score multiple 30-point games in a season, also grabbed eight rebounds and dished out four assists.

    “I’ve been shooting badly in the last two games, so I really did some extra shooting in practice,” said Romeo, one of the leading MVP candidates this season.

    The scores:

    First Game

    UST 63—Mariano 18, Ferrer 12, Teng 9, Daquioag 9, Abdul 7, Bautista 3, Pe 2, Faundo 2, Lao 1, Tan 0, Sheriff 0, Lo 0, Hainga 0.

    UP 39—Marata 12, Lao 6, Soyud 5, Ball 5, Wong 2, Suarez 2, Gallarza 2, Desiderio 2, Asilum 2, Harris 1, Pascual 0. Paras 0, Gingerich 0, Amar 0.

    Quarters: 14-13, 23-20, 40-33, 63-39

    Second Game

    FEU 92—Romeo 32, Belo 18, Garcia 14, Cruz 8, Mendoza 7, Tolomia 5, Sentcheu 2, Pogoy 2, Lee Yu 2, Jose 2, Iņigo 0, Luz 0, Dennison 0, Delfinado 0, Aguilon 0.

    ADAMSON 80—Trollano 25, Cruz 13, Rios 11, Brondial 9, Iņigo 7, Sewa 6, Petilos 3, Cabrera 3, Cabigas 2, Monteclaro 1, Ochea 0, Julkipli 0, Agustin 0.

    Archers repulse Tigers

    La Salle forges playoff for No. 2 spot vs FEU

    LA SALLE pulled off a surprise second-round sweep to earn a shot at the last semifinal bonus in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at Mall of Asia Arena.

    Drawing another clutch outing from Jeron Teng, the Green Archers downed the University of Santo Tomas Tigers, 69-64, to wrap up their elimination run at 10-4 and forge a winner-take-all match for the twice-to-beat advantage against Far Eastern University.

    “We never thought of it,” coach Juno Sauler said of the Archers’ perfect 7-0 run in the second half of the eliminations. “There wasn’t really any adjustment. It’s what we did right from the start. It just took time working on what we need to work on.”

    The Archers wound up in a three-way tie on top with National University and FEU, but the Bulldogs clinched the No. 1 spot and the first semifinal bonus due to a superior quotient.

    Teng unloaded 19 points, the last four inside the final 54.2 seconds that helped the Archers quell the Tigers’ late surge.

    UST fell into a share of fourth place with idle Ateneo at 7-6 and the two squads, both finalists last season, will dispute the last Final Four berth on the last day of eliminations on Wednesday. The winner will advance against the Bulldogs in the semifinals.

    The Archers and the Tamaraws will clash in the other semifinal duel, making their playoff for the Final Four bonus next weekend a start of a virtual best-of-three duel.

    Teng finished with a double-double by also grabbing 11 boards, while Norbert Torres came out big with 14 points and 13 rebounds.

    Earlier, University of the East snapped a four-game losing skid with a 77-60 drubbing of Adamson in a battle of eliminated teams.

    Juniors action

    In juniors action, the NU Bullpups clinched an outright championship slot after completing a 14-0 elimination sweep as Ateneo’s Thirdy Ravena bagged the Most Valuable Player award.

    John Cauilan (23 points, 13 rebounds), Hubert Cani (21 points, 6 assists) and Mark Dyke (18 points, 20 rebounds) led the Bullpups past the Blue Eaglets, 82-81, in overtime.

    The Eaglets finished with a second-best 11-3 card and will hold a twice-to-beat edge in the stepladder semifinals.

    Ravena bagged the top individual plum after amassing 79.57 statistical points (SPs) with averages of 18.7 points, 11.2 rebounds and 4.3 assists.

    Cheerdance up
    Meanwhile, the league takes a break from basketball action as the cheerdance competition gets going today at Mall of Asia Arena.

    University of the Philippines will vie for a fourth straight crown in the blockbuster event where FEU, NU and UST have also been tagged as favorites.

    NU hopes to finally nail the top plum after an overhaul of its program this season.

    “That’s our mission, to join the best of this 19-year-old cheerdance league,” said NU assistant coach Gabby Bajacan.

    The scores:

    First Game

    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.

    ADAMSON 60–Trollano 15, Monteclaro 10, Iņigo 6, Cabrera 6, Brondial 6, Agustin 6, Cruz 5, Sewa 3, Petilos 2, Abrigo 1, Garcia 0, Cabigas 0.

    Quarters: 11-13, 43-38, 62-55, 77-60

    Second Game

    LA SALLE 69–Teng 19, N. Torres 14, Vosotros 11, Perkins 7, Van Opstal 6, Revilla 6, T. Torres 3, Salem 3, Reyes 0, Montalbo 0, Dela Paz 0.

    UST 64–Abdul 18, Mariano 16, Teng 10, Bautista 6, Sheriff 5, Ferrer 5, Lo 2, Daquioag 2, Pe 0, Faundo 0.
    Quarters: 15-13, 39-30, 53-45, 69-64

    Mammie's sterling game carries UE over Adamson

    Olmin Leyba | Updated Saturday September 14, 2013 - 6:03pm

    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.

    Adamson great Duremdes gets head-coaching job as Austria 'takes a break'

    From: Reuben Terrado

    September 20, 2013, 11:31 am

    KENNETH Duremdes will take over as head coach of Adamson replacing Leo Austria, who decided not to renew his contract with the Falcons.

    Team manager Gilbert Cruz confirmed the choice of the former PBA Most Valuable Player as the Falcons' new head coach to take over from Austria, who formally expressed his intention not to return to the Falcons bench earlier this week.

    [For full story, see Falcons coach ready to fly the coop as Adamson yet to make contract offer]

    “He (Austria) wants to take a rest and give Adamson a free hand in selecting a new coach,” said Cruz of Austria, who is also coach of San Miguel Beer in the ABL and an assistant coach at PBA ballclub Petron.

    Cruz said that selecting Duremdes as the team’s new coach was an easy decision considering he is one of the greats in Philippine basketball and played for the Falcons in the early 1990s.

    “He is one of the most decorated players at Adamson,” said Cruz.

    Duremdes, who was one of Austria’s deputies at Adamson this season, was part of the last Falcons team that reached the Finals in 1992 along with giants Marlou Aquino, Edward Joseph Feihl, Giovanni Pineda, and Gerry Hipolito. They were swept in two games by the FEU Tamaraws bannered by the great Johnny Abarrientos

    The Marbel, South Cotabato native went on to play in the pro league, where he won the MVP award with Alaska in 1998 and was named one of the PBA's 25 Greatest Players.

    Duremdes held the Coke coaching job briefly in the pro league before being named team manager and later assistant coach of the now-defunct Powerade under head coach Bo Perasol.

    His appointment is set to be made official in the coming days.

    Cruz said that Adamson is still open to Austria returning in any capacity.

    “We told him that the door is always open for coach Leo returning to Adamson,” Cruz said.
