    Javier, Olivares star in 4th quarter run to lift UE past La Salle

    By Celest R. Flores

    5:07 pm | Saturday, July 20th, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines – University of the East mounted a spirited comeback in the fourth quarter and escaped La Salle, 85-83, Saturday in the UAAP season 76 men’s basketball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena.

    The Red Warriors erased a 10-point deficit in the last eight and a half minutes of the game with a rally sparked by Chris Javier and sustained by Roi Sumang, as Ralf Olivares and Dan Alberto completed the comeback for their second straight victory.

    While it was a great comeback, head coach Boycie Zamar rued his players’ lack of mental toughness.

    “We have to develop our mental toughness. It’s not the X-and-Os anymore when you’re down by 10. But we wouldn’t be down like that if we had mental toughness,” said Zamar.

    Sumang wound up with 21 points, seven rebounds and six assists, Charles Mammie added 19 points and 16 boards while Javier had 16 markers.

    From 58-68 down, Javier and Sumang tandemed in a 12-3 run to pull the game even at 73 with 3:21 to play, before Alberto and Olivarez accounted for UE’s last 10 markers.

    A triple from Olivares –who was only used sparingly — gave the Red Warriors their first lead of the final quarter, 82-81, with 42.3 seconds after pouncing on a crucial miscue by La Salle.

    “We have a ‘cat and mouse’ relationship. But it was a good thing he stepped up when I put him in the game,” also said Zamar.

    He also had a crucial split from the stripe in their final offensive possession, but had to rely on luck when Norbert Torres pulled down his missed foul throw.

    The Green Archers were just a basket away from overtime, and had 12.6 ticks to get either a tie or game-winning shot off, but Thomas Torres misfired on their final attempt.

    UE reached the .500 mark (3-3) with just a game left in the first round of eliminations while La Salle dropped to 2-3.

    Almond Vosotros’ new career high of 26 points — built on four triples — went down the drain. Teng, who had 13, was scoreless in the entire second half.

    ^ While Roi Sumang was busy castigating his guys for their half-arsed play that finally knocked some sense into his Warriors, no one stepped up to be a leader for the Archers. Up 10 with eight minutes and change, Almond Vosotros suddenly had to take bad shots because no one else seemed to want the ball in the face of the hot UE rallye. Lasalle needs to figure out who their leader is on the team. LA Revilla should have been that guy, but his less than 100% good health seems to preclude this now. Someone has to step up and be a credible leader for the Archers.

    This time, free throws lift La Salle

    THE FREE throws that doomed La Salle in recent meltdowns saved the Green Archers this time.

    Jeron Teng and Norbert Torres canned five of six free throws inside the last 41 seconds as the Green Archers survived Adamson’s furious rally, 70-67, in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    “I’m still not satisfied with how we finished the game,” said La Salle coach Juno Sauler after the Archers blew a 15-point advantage, 65-50, in the last five minutes.

    “We have to learn how to play for four quarters. We played good for three quarters, but in the end, we turned the ball over, gave second-chance opportunities to our opponents.”

    The Green Archers spoiled the Falcons’ bid to stay in the top two with Santo Tomas grabbing solo second with a 4-2 record.

    The Tigers, with Aljon Mariano and Clark Bautista taking over in the final quarter, held off the University of the Philippines Maroons, 79-69, in the first game.

    The Archers and the Falcons wound up with similar 3-3 records like idle University of the East and National University.

    Teng, who has been shooting miserably from the foul line, nailed two clutch free throws that gave the Archers the lead, 67-65, with 41.9 seconds left after the Falcons staged a 15-0 outburst that tied the game at 65.

    “I’ve been really focused on improving my free throws,” said Teng.

    Torres shot a couple more free throws with 15.9 ticks left off an unsportsmanlike foul slapped on Adamson’s Lloyd Abrigo.

    “It wasn’t a foul, both players were jockeying for position,” a livid Adamson coach Leo Austria said of the controversial call that awarded the Archers two free throws plus possession in the dying seconds.

    Torres finished with 13 points and Jason Perkins had 13 points and 13 boards for the Archers, who recovered from heartbreakers versus Far Eastern U and University of the East.

    The scores:

    First Game

    UST 79–Mariano 18, Ferrer 16, Abdul 14, Bautista 12, Lo 9, So 4, Daquioag 4, Pe 2, Tan 0, Macasaet 0, Lao 0, Hainga 0, Faundo 0.

    UP 69–Marata 16, Lao 9, Wong 7, Pascual 7, Ball 7, Ligad 6, Ginerich 5, Suarez 4, Harris 4, Asilum 4, Gallarza 0.

    Quarters: 21-15, 35-31, 56-48, 79-69

    Second Game

    LA SALLE 70—N. Torres 13, Perkins 13, Teng 12, Vosotros 11, Van Opstal 10. Revilla 6, T. Torres 3, Dela Paz 2, Tampus 0, Salem 0, Bolick 0.

    ADAMSON 67—Trollano 14, Cruz 13 Abrigo 10, Cabrera 9, Iñigo 7, Brondial 6, Sewa 5, Agustin 2, Julkipli 1, Rios 0, Petilos 0, Monteclaro 0.

    Quarters: 18-7, 35-22, 55-42, 70-67

    ^^^ I highlighted that portion because if I were the referee I would have called a foul in that same play myself. Jockeying for position does not mean pushing, shoving, wrestling and elbowing. I will go even further and say there MAY have been an unsportsmanlike foul. From my angle I certainly did not catch it.

    HOWEVER what is highly questionable is that the referee took all of four or five seconds and with clear and utter tentativeness then and only then signal the unsportsmanlike foul. He should have whistled that unsportsmanlike foul IMMEDIATELY and DECISIVELY. Half-arsing it will now give rise to many unsavory speculations.

    Which speculations would be unfair to Lasalle, which kept their composure this time, made their freethrows as Jasmine said up there, and weathered a furious Adamson rally to preserve the win after two collapses previous.

    And which speculations would also be unfair to Adamson, which put on a magnificent rally, and had that been called a regular foul, still would have had a more realistic chance of pulling this one off.

    Ang dapat sisihin dito walang iba kundi si Referee Olivar (I hope I got that name right).

    I have been belatedly informed by the Marco Benitez that there is apparently a rule that fouls committed while the clock is stopped (such as when the ball has not yet been inbound) in the last two minutes are deemed unsportsmanlike fouls.

    So apparently the ref had no discretion whether or not to call it an unsportsmanlike foul or not.

    Tams ward off Falcons, sweep elims

    By Joey Villar

    (The Philippine Star) | Updated July 29, 2013 - 12:00am

    MANILA, Philippines - Terrence Romeo came through with another explosive performance as Far Eastern U survived a hard-fighting Adamson side, 74-71, to complete a sweep of the first round of the 76th UAAP men’s basketball tournament at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum yesterday.

    Romeo sizzled for a game-best 26 points, including the last eight points that stymied the Falcons’ repeated comebacks and anchored the Morayta-based school’s best start since stringing seven straight triumphs to start the 2010 season.

    “Yes, a first round sweep is an accomplishment,” said FEU coach Nash Racela. “But it’s the bigger picture we’re after because the season isn’t over.”

    Meanwhile, the league takes a two-week break to give way to the FIBA-Asia Championship slated Aug 1-11 at the MOA Arena and Ninoy Aquino Stadium. Games will resume on Aug. 14 with La Salle and Adamson clashing at 2 p.m. and FEU battling NU at 4 p.m.

    The solid start gave FEU a big three-win cushion over National U, UST and University of the East, which all ended up with 4-3 cards after the first phase of the elims, in the battle for one of the coveted twice-to-beat incentives in the Final Four.

    NU gained a share of second by turning back La Salle in a scrambling finish, 63-56, in the other match.

    Reigning back-to-back MVP Bobby Ray Parks Jr. came through with 20 points, 14 rebounds and six assists as the Bulldogs rebounded from back-to-back losses to stay in the hunt.

    Still, the day belonged to Romeo.

    After trailing majority of the way and by three, 58-61, midway in the final canto, FEU clamped down on defense to slow down the Falcons while Romeo stepped up to do what he does best – shoot the lights out of the Big Dome.

    The streak shooting Romeo actually had a sluggish start, missing seven of his 11 attempts in the first half until he found his rhythm and range when the Tams needed them most.

    “I was a little tight but I’m happy I got my rhythm back in the second half,” said Romeo, the league’s current MVP race leader.

    The Falcons actually had one last chance to force overtime after FEU’s Mike Tolomia turned the ball over on a five-second violation with 15.9 seconds remaining in the contest.

    But Ar-raouf Julkipli misfired on a desperation three-pointer, sending Adamson to 3-4 in a tie with La Salle and idle Ateneo with UP going winless in seven games.

    NU ends FEU run; La Salle escapes in OT

    By Jasmine W. Payo

    1:29 am | Thursday, August 15th, 2013

    National University ended Far Eastern University’s dream run with Bulldogs star Ray Parks, struggling from the field all game, clinching the win with three clutch free throws.

    Parks finished with a career-low seven points but still emerged the hero as the Bulldogs prevailed, 59-58, and spoiled the Tamaraws’ bid to stay perfect in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    “I’m proud of my teammates for stepping up,” said Parks, a two-time MVP. “I wasn’t playing well but they picked me up.”

    Parks nailed three free throws inside the last 32 seconds before FEU guard Mike Tolomia missed a potential game-winner in the dwindling seconds.

    The Tamaraws still kept top spot at 7-1, while the Bulldogs grabbed solo second with a 5-2 record.

    Almond Vosotros also starred in a first-game thriller by burying a “lucky shot” with 1.8 seconds left that lifted La Salle past Adamson, 70-69, in overtime.

    Vosotros’ game-winner bounced off the rim four times before trickling in to give the Archers their fourth victory in eight games.

    “This is our first close win,” said La Salle coach Juno Sauler. “It’s also good for the team.”

    Vosotros shot a team-high 19 points, including five of the Archers’ eight in the extra period.

    “It was really a lucky shot,” said Vosotros, the senior guard who also collected nine rebounds, five assists and two steals.

    Gelo Alolino topscored for the Bulldogs with 13 and Emmanuel Mbe had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

    Parks sat out for most of the first half after picking up two fouls in his first three minutes of play.

    RR Garcia led the Tamaraws with 20 markers, but top MVP contender Terrence Romeo had a season-low of eight points on a woeful 3-of-16 shooting clip.

    The scores:

    First Game

    LA SALLE 70–Vosotros 19, Van Opstal 13, Teng 9, Torres 8, Perkins 6, Revilla 5, Tampus 4, Salem 3, Monalbo 3, Reyes 0.

    ADAMSON 69–Brondial 19, Cruz 15, Cabrera 11, Trollano 9, Petilos 6, Monteclaro 5, Sewa 2, Julkipli 1, Agustin 1, Rios 0, Ochea 0, Cabigas 0, Bernabe 0, Abrigo 0.

    Quarters: 14-16, 34-30, 52-47, 62-62 (reg.), 70-69 (OT)

    Second Game

    NU 59–Alolino 13, Mbe 10, Khobuntin 10, Parks 7, Villamor 4, Roño 4, Porter 4, Perez 4, Javillonar 2, Alejandro 1, Javelona 0, De Guzman 0.

    FEU 58–Garcia 20, Tolomia 8, Romeo 8, Cruz, 6, Belo 5, Mendoza 4, Hargrove 3, Iñigo 2, Pogoy 2, Sentcheu 0, Jose 0, Dennison 0, Aguilon 0.

    Quarters: 17-17, 31-25, 50-43, 59-58

    Archers pin 2nd loss on tense Tams

    Bulldogs feast on Falcons

    IT’S La Salle’s turn to show that first-round giant Far Eastern University no longer looks invincible.

    Jason Perkins fueled a strong start and Jeron Teng came through the clutch as the Green Archers blasted the skidding Tamaraws, 75-66, yesterday in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament at Mall of Asia Arena.

    “I’ve been telling my players to be mentally tough and prepared,” said coach Juno Sauler after the Archers pinned a second straight loss on the Tamaraws, who have yet to win after a seven-game sweep of the first round.

    Perkins fired 13 of his 18 points in the first half where the Archers pulled ahead by as many as 22 points, 43-21. The Filipino-American rookie also grabbed 13 rebounds.

    Earlier, National University cruised past Adamson, 80-48, and moved within striking distance of the top spot with a 6-3 record, just a game away from the Tamaraws.

    Emmanuel Mbe and Ray Parks powered the Bulldogs’ dominant start where they zoomed to a 21-7 lead and never looked back.

    The Archers crashed the top four with a 5-4 card, while the Falcons fell to 3-6.

    Teng added 16 points, including six in the last six minutes that helped protect the Archers’ lead, 71-62, after the Tamaraws had rallied within a bucket, 62-60, behind Mark Belo.

    “We’ve talked about the mistakes we committed in the first round and we made sure to learn from them,” said Teng after the Archers avenged their first-round heartbreak to the Tamaraws in overtime, 79-83, after blowing a 13-point lead in the last three minutes of regulation.

    Top MVP contender Terrence Romeo, who shot a season-low eight points in the Tamaraws’ 58-59 loss to the Bulldogs last Wednesday, struggled anew with 12 on a 4-of-18 shooting clip.

    Mbe collected 21 points, 10 rebounds and four steals, while Parks also had a solid outing of 16 points, six boards and five assists.

    “It all boiled down to our stops,” said NU coach Eric Altamirano. “Fortunately for this team, we were able to run. We were able to get shots off our transition. That really helped us.”

    The Bulldogs overwhelmed the Falcons in every department, including rebounds (41-30), fastbreak points (23-3) and points off turnover (20-8 ).

    “I’m very proud of the boys,” said Altamirano. “They executed the game plan very well.”

    The scores:

    First Game

    NU 80—Mbe 21, Parks 16, Roño 8, Porter 6, Javillonar 6, Alolino 6, Rosario 5, Khobuntin 4, Neypes 3, Javelona 3, Villamor 2, Perez 0, Labing-isa 0.

    ADAMSON 48—Cabrera 12, Cruz 11, Sewa 8, Petilos 5, Brondial 5, Garcia 2, Agustin 2, Abrigo 2, Monteclaro 1, Trollano 0, Rios 0, Ochea 0, Julkipli 0, Iñigo 0.

    Quarters: 21-7, 37-25, 55-40, 80-48

    Second Game

    LA SALLE 75—Perkins 18, Teng 16, Vosotros 13, Van Opstal 9, Salem 6, Montalbo 5, Torres 4, Tampus 4, Revilla 0, Bolick 0.

    FEU 66—Pogoy 16, Belo 16, Romeo 12, Tolomia 7, Hargrove 6, Garcia 5, Cruz 4, Iñigo 0, Sentcheu 0, Mendoza 0, Jose 0, Dennison 0.
    Quarters: 23-14, 44-33, 60-50, 75-66

    Bulldogs clobber Tigers, gain 2nd

    By Jasmine W. Payo

    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    2:03 am | Sunday, August 25th, 2013

    A HOT-SHOOTING Robin Roño starred off the bench as National University hammered out a 75-61 triumph over University of Santo Tomas to move half a game off the top spot in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Roño fired a career-high 19 points, 15 coming from three-point range, to power the Bulldogs past the Tigers, who lost top gunner Jeric Teng to injury anew.

    The Bulldogs streaked to their fourth straight victory showing they’re more than just Ray Parks as Dennice Villamor (18 points, nine rebounds, four assists) and Gelo Alolino (10 points, four assists, two steals) also delivered in key stretches.

    “It was really a collective effort,” said coach Eric Altamirano after his Bulldogs closed in on solo leader Far Eastern University (7-2) with a 7-3 record.

    La Salle also stayed on a roll as the Green Archers routed University of the Philippines, 85-63, to keep solo fourth with a 6-4 record.
    Jason Perkins dropped 11 of his 19 points in the final canto and grabbed 16 rebounds to lead the Archers’ third straight win in the second round.

    The skidding Tigers had hoped to get a lift from Teng, who returned after getting sidelined for more than a month due to a shoulder injury. But UST’s top gunner went down again in the second quarter due to a hamstring injury and sat out the rest of the game.

    Parks, who had a wrist injury scare in the first period, came back to finish with 10 points, eight rebounds, five assists and a couple of steals.

    Almond Vosotros (16 points, seven assists), Norbert Torres (16 points, 14 rebounds) and Jeron Teng (12 points) also shone for the Archers, who rallied from 35-42.

    “We just shot better in the second half,” said coach Juno Sauler after his Archers spoiled UP coach Rey Madrid’s debut with UP, now 0-9.

    The scores:

    First Game

    LA SALLE 85–Perkins 19, Vosotros 16, N. Torres 16, Teng 12, Van Opstal 7, Revilla 6, Montalbo 5, Tampus 4, T. Torres 0, Salem 0.

    UP 63–Asilum 18, Soyud 11, Marata 11, Wong 6, Lao 6, Harris 4, Desiderio 4, Pascual 3, Suarez 0, Paras 0, Gingerich 0, Gallarza 0.

    Quarters: 23-20, 35-42, 61-56, 85-63

    Second Game

    NU 75– Roño 19, Villamor 18, Parks 10, Alolino 10, Khobuntin 9, Mbe 4, Javillonar 3, Perez 2, Rosario 0, Porter 0, Neypes 0, Javelona 0, Alejandro 0.

    UST 61–Abdul 18, Ferrrer 11, Mariano 9, Daquioag 9, Lo 5, Bautista 5, Teng 2, Sheriff 2, Tan 0, Pe 0, Lao 0.

    Quarters: 17-14, 36-33, 56-44, 75-61

    UAAP: Teng nails game-winner to lift La Salle past Ateneo

    By Celest R. Flores

    6:43 pm | Sunday, September 1st, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines — La Salle gained separation from Ateneo in the race to the final four after a thrilling 66-64 win, thanks to Jeron Teng, Sunday in the UAAP season 76 men’s basketball tournament at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Teng shrugged off a lackluster game and bailed the Green Archers out with a leaning clutch jumper with 1.9 seconds left, allowing them to get a full game edge in the standings.

    La Salle improved to 7-4 and nabbed solo third, while Ateneo dropped to 6-5 and tied with University of Santo Tomas at fourth place.

    With the time winding down and a tied game, the former rookie-of-the-year took it strong to the hoop and past defense of Ateneo’s Chris Newsome.

    “I just told him to make good decisions. He made a good read there, he wasn’t double teamed,” said head coach Juno Sauler.

    “All throughout the game, I couldn’t get my rhythm. But in the last play, I’m thankful that coach trusted me with the last play,” Teng, who only had eight points, said.

    Almond Vosotros sizzled with 19 points, carrying the load for the Green Archers when Teng rode the bench in the third because of foul trouble.

    After starting the fourth period with the lead, the Blue Eagles were made to play catch up in the last five minutes after the Green Archers took a 57-53 lead.

    Down 59-63, Ateneo leaned on a triple by Ryan Buenafe, with 41.9 seconds left, then later on a drive from Kiefer Ravena to knot the game.

    But Ravena left enough time on the clock — a 14.5 ticks — for the Green Archers to take the last shot, which Teng capitalized.

    Juami Tiongson led the Blue Eagles with 14 markers while Nico Elorde added 13. Ravena had 12, but had five turnovers.
