    Talk of the Town

    Bert Flores: Taller frontline a must for FEU next year

    MANILA, Philippines—Far Eastern University tries to shore up its frontcourt rotation as the Tamaraws start their buildup early for the next UAAP men’s basketball tournament.

    Although his team boasted a formidable three-guard combo, FEU coach Bert Flores said the lack of a low-post threat did them in during the Finals series against Ateneo.

    “We have to develop our big men,” said Flores. “We had Aldrech Ramos, but after him, we only had rookies. They’re still very raw.”

    Ateneo swept the Tamaraws, 2-0, in the best-of-three series with Nico Salva, Kirk Long, Emman Monfort and rookie stars Greg Slaughter and Kiefer Ravena combining to give the Blue Eagles a fourth straight crown.

    “They’re a very disciplined team, while we had problems with our ball movement,” said Flores, adding that the seven-foot Slaughter posed a real problem for the Tamaraws.

    “We had all kinds of defense [on Slaughter]—double-team, single-coverage—but it was really hard. We needed at least one more post player.”

    Flores said Pippo Noundou could have helped, but the Cameroonian big man got sidelined by a torn achilles tendon.

    The Tamaraws will lose Ramos, Noundou, Chris Exciminiano, JR Cawaling and Jens Knuttel to graduation, but still boast a formidable backcourt next year with RR Garcia, Terrence Romeo and Chris Tolomia.

    Flores said the Tamaraws are definitely beefing up their frontline with American Anthony Hargrove, former La Salle power forward Arvie Bringas and Mac Bello.

    Is that not something the team should have done as soon as Season 73 ended last year...?

    The real problem is maximizing the three star guards, not looking to get bigger. If Romeo would only be a more willing passer within the motion offense of Flores then even with a thin frontline FEU would still be strong. The problem is that Romeo only passes when he gets in trouble, kapag alangan na, and the other guys have to bail him out. Garcia showed what real high-level guard play is all about, bouncing back from a bad Game 1. Romeo thought he would continue with his lucky shooting streak from Game 1 and went something like 1-13 from the field over quarters 1 through 3. Minalas ang Tams nung binuenas si Romeo in Game 1. Ayon tuloy, akala tuloy-tuloy na ang buenas up to Game 2.

    I think they were busy preparing their case against the eligibility of Slaughter and probably believed they had an iron clad argument and will succeed.
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    I think they were Ready to face ADMu then with complete line-up but they got busted during Pre-season tornament with the lost of PF Papi Noundu to injury (ACL) and on Season 74 SF JR Cawaling knee injury and hardly non factor Christian Sentceuo (darius Miles) plus Reil Cervantes who opted to play Pro. the lost of Papi was crucial for tams because there is no another PF to play alongside with Aldrech Ramos to manned the paint. the Coaching Staff knows from the start that they might end up 50-50 chances getting to F4 but they overachieve themselves by beating twice no.2 seed Falcons F4 playoffs for the right to face the eventual Champions ADmu. the rest is history 4feat Blue eagels . ;D

    PBA Hall of Famer Billy Ray Bates owes a lot to his San Francisco-based Filipino friend and loyal Crispa fan Jimmy Fojas, the environment, health and safety and facilities manager of Zeachem, Inc., a biotechnology company that makes cellulosic ethanol from wood chips in Menlo Park. It was Fojas who brought Bates back to the consciousness of Filipino media by reconnecting the “Black Superman” with local journalists last year.

    Eventually, Bates was contacted by PBA marketing and licensing officer Rhose Montreal through Fojas to inform him of his induction into the PBA Hall of Fame. Montreal arranged for Bates’ visit to Manila for the enshrinement ceremony at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last Oct. 2.

    Bates was initially booked to leave Manila and return to the US on Oct. 5. But he pleaded for more time to work out a job contract. Bates didn’t relish going back to his graveyard shift job as a floor technician in New Jersey and wanted to follow in the footsteps of former colleagues Norman Black and Bobby Parks who are employed here as coaches. Bates moved out of Linden Suites, where he was billeted by the PBA, and checked in at another hotel in Mandaluyong. Player agent Sheryl Reyes, whose clients include Ren-Ren Ritualo and Alex Crisano, came to Bates’ rescue and negotiated a contract as a skills coach with the Philippine Patriots of the Asean Basketball League. Two other agents Matthew Manotoc and Marvin Espiritu are also helping out Bates.

    “Some people I talked to said that all eyes will be on Billy in this new gig to see if he can perform the job well and if he does, maybe Billy will get a lot of attention from PBA teams,” wrote Fojas from San Francisco. “That remains to be seen. I’m just glad that he’s back in Manila and has a job. This will not have happened without the help of Philippine media.”

    Fojas said Grosby, the brand that produced Bates’ signature “Black Superman” sneakers in the 1980s, is set to launch a retro version. “Grosby put him in a hotel for 10 days and they’re working on a contract related to

    releasing his retro shoes and other sports gear,” continued Fojas. “Matt Manotoc e-mailed and told me he’s going to help Billy in any way for nothing in return and it’s because of Billy’s ties to his dad (Tommy). I spoke with Billy long-distance and advised him to write an apology to the PBA on why he missed his scheduled flight back and why he decided to stay and seek opportunities in Manila. I’m happy that his dream to be back and work in Manila has become a reality.”

    UniGames features nation's best student athletes
    (The Philippine Star) Updated October 12, 2011 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - This year’s Philippine University Games or UniGames set Oct. 22 to 29 in Roxas City, Capiz will be a showcase of the finest student athletes in the country.

    It will also give the Philippine Sports Commission, the government’s funding arm in sports, a chance to discover and identify future members of the national pool.

    “The PSC is playing a more active role in the UniGames as part of our grassroots development program,” said PSC commissioner Jolly Gomez during yesterday’s PSA Forum.

    “It will allow us to see athletic talent among the youth, and act on their development during their formative years,” added the PSC commissioner.

    He said this year’s edition promises to be bigger than the previous ones with at least 46 universities to be represented by more than 4,000 students on hand.

    They will vie in 14 sports disciplines, including athletics, basketball, football, lawn tennis, swimming, badminton, table tennis, taekwondo, volleyball, beach volleyball, sepak takraw and billiards.

    Gomez said billiards is the newest sport in the UniGames calendar.

    Colegio dela Purisima Concepcion will host the games with venues almost walking distance to one another, according to Gomez.

    “Roxas City is all out in hosting the event. They even put up new hotels,” said the PSC commissioner.

    Among the competing universities include Ateneo, La Salle, University of the Philippines, Adamson, NU, Santo Tomas, UE, San Beda and FEU.

    “It will also give those from the provinces a chance to gauge their programs against these elite schools from the UAAP or the NCAA,” Gomez added.

    Also sending their best bets are Ateneo de Davao, Holy Angel University, Foundation U, Mindanao State U, Negros Occ. State U, University of San Carlos, University of St. La Salle, University of San Agustin and West Negros, among others.
