    Retooled UE Red Warriors go all-in for Final Four bid
    Looking to improve from a forgettable 1-13 finish last season, the UE Red Warriors boast a new-look squad

    MANILA, Philippines – The UE Red Warriors definitely don't want to stay at the cellar any longer once the UAAP Season 82 rolls around.

    Instead of fully investing on young talents amid the departure of Season 81 MVP candidate Alvin Pasaol, the team has doubled down on veteran presence with the recruitment of two-time CESAFI MVP Rey Suerte and former JRU leading scorer Jed Mendoza.

    And with Senegalese big man Adama Dikahite joining the fray as UE’s first foreign student-athlete in 5 years, Suerte and Mendoza were clearly not brought in just to fill out the youth-laden Red Warriors roster.

    “Ito kasi yung team namin ngayon, talagang team. Basketball naman kasi team sport kasi yan hindi naman pwedeng isa lang yung gumagawa e,” said graduating team captain Philip Manalang.

    “Siguro yun lang yung comparison ko sa last year kasi itong mga bata, siguro dahil bago pa sila talagang nakikinig sila sa sasabihin ng veterans sa kanila, sa mga coaches, talagang ginagawa lang nila yung role nila. Di sila nagseselos kung sino man yung gumagawa sa team namin.”

    (This team we have right now is a real team. Basketball is a team sport so one guy can’t do it all. That’s my comparison from last year because these kids, maybe because they’re still new, they really listen to what the veterans and coaches tell them. They really fulfill their roles and they’re not envious of whomever does the most work in our team.)

    With an established veteran core ready to lead the team, UE is looking to vastly improve from its forgettable 1-13 finish last season and perhaps even contend for a coveted Final Four spot.

    “Sino namang player sa UAAP na 'di gustong pumasok sa Final Four 'di ba?” quipped Suerte, a three-time CESAFI champion with the University of Visayas Green Lancers.

    “Yun lang yung goal namin na first. Step by step yung goal namin, galing sa baba, paangat nang paangat. Yun lang yung goal namin.”

    (There’s no player who doesn’t want to go to the Final Four, right? That’s our primary goal. We’ll do it step-by-step from the bottom before rising to the top. That’s our only goal.) – Rappler.com

    UE coach Joe Silva resigns a day before UAAP Season 82
    Bong Tan, the son of school owner Lucio Tan, takes over as Red Warriors head coach

    MANILA, Philippines – University of the Eas head coach Joe Silva has left the Red Warriors’ den just a day before the start of the UAAP Season 82, a source who requested anonymity confirmed to Rappler Sports on Tuesday, September 3.

    Bong Tan, the son of school owner Lucio Tan, is set to replace the former UAAP juniors champion coach who amassed a dismal 1-13 record last year in his seniors division debut.

    The development came as a surprise, to say the least, for the revamped Red Warriors, who are set to field a trio of experienced talents in Senegalese big man Adama Diakhite, two-time CESAFI MVP Rey Suerte and former JRU Heavy Bombers leading scorer Jed Mendoza.

    Prior to his resignation, Silva heaped praises on his squad and believed they're on the cusp of a Final Four return.

    “We want this team to fight,” he said. “We want this team to be the best they can be. We want this team to overachieve. We want this team to work hard.”

    “And at the end of the day, results will follow so that’s what we want,” added Silva, who mentored the Ateneo Blue Eaglets before joining the Warriors

    “So we want this team to really embrace everything and go get those wins.”

    However, as it now turns out, Silva will no longer be a part of that future.

    Now fielding Diakhite, Suerte, Mendoza, captain Philip Manalang and steady prospect Harvey Pagsanjan, the new-look Red Warriors will start off the new season against the UST Growling Tigers on Wednesday, September 4, at 10:30 am at the Araneta Coliseum. – Rappler.com

    Joe Silva steps down as head coach a day before UE's first game in UAAP 82
    Norman Lee Benjamin Riego on Sep 03, 2019 03:21 PM

    For the second straight season, University of the East will be undergoing a coaching change.

    Joe Silva has stepped down after his first and only year as head coach for the Red Warriors. "Since management has decided to move in a different direction, I am resigning as head coach of UE," the youthful mentor said.

    After a successful stint as shot-caller of Ateneo de Manila High School, the crown jewels of which were two championships, Silva guided UE to a 1-13 record in a year wherein Alvin Pasaol and Philip Manalang were the only capable and confident weapons in their arsenal.

    Things seemed to be looking up this time around, however, as the Red Warriors are now a fully loaded team steered by steady Manalang and strengthened by 6-foot-9 Senegalese Alex Diakhite, Hope Christian High School standout Harvey Pagsanjan, three-time champion and two-time MVP in CESAFI Rey Suerte, ex-Jose Rizal University super scorer Jed Mendoza, former Ateneo de Manila University forward John Apacible, defensive stopper Neil Tolentino, and Filipino-Kiwi swingman Ritchie Rodger.

    Now, however, the red and white will have to adjust to a brand new head coach just a day before they start their season opposite University of Sto. Tomas on Wednesday at Araneta Coliseum.

    Meanwhile, the staff made up of ex-pros Paul Artadi, Estong Ballesteros, and Rob Labagala as well as new Jr. Warriors mentor Anton Brodett remains in place.

    For his part, Coach Joe went on to say he will take some time off before making his next move.

    What's certain, though, is that he will only be better after this. "I will continue to work on my craft and learning and improving so I will be better in what I do," he said.
