if Emell will have a good game. i think they have a chance. they can really rely on their top 3 players, rowe, llanto and cortes. it's the supporting cast that should give their share this time.

Emel Rowe had another measly 3 points as USC's shooting woes continue bowing to the Jaguars, 77-64

i hope they will win this time because if they don't their finals hope is in peril since it's hard to sweep the 2nd round. they still have to met UC and DBC in the 1st round.

there's only 1 round of elims, quarterfinals is up next

USC tries to arrest a 2-game slide when they face a dangerous USPF Panthers squad who almost beat the UV Lancers the last time out, definitely a team USC cant take lightly

08-15-2008, 11:19 AM
im starting to doubt if USC will advance to the semis with that two game losing streak. what happened to emil rowe? he is not doin well in that 2 loses.

08-15-2008, 01:08 PM
Emel Rowe averaged 1.5 points in the 2 losses. They are still in the thick of the fight as the only assignments they have left will only have UC as a heavy opponent

what's the score of emel in this game? it was reported that it's a balance attack topscored by padillo with 11.

08-22-2008, 11:47 AM
7 points, but he was definitely more aggressive. And he just showcased his passing strength in that game. He could have easily had 8 assists in that game if only all his assist passes were converted. Sadly there were fastbreak misses and gimme misses which happens so that's fine

USC survives UC

Cebu Daily News

The University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors scaled the man-mountain named Junmar Fajardo and the rest of his University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters, as they finished their elimination round assignments with a courageous 110-101 victory Sunday evening in the seniors division of the Cesafi basketball tournament at the Cebu Coliseum.

Playing without two-time MVP Enrico Llanto, the Warriors buckled down and raced off to a double-digit advantage in the first half before holding on in the endgame for their fifth win in seven matches.

Leading by three points at the end of the first period, the Warriors turned to former Philippine Christian University Dolphin Sam Hermosa for offense and the 6-foot-2 forward delivered, scoring 11 straight points to help USC take a 39-32 advantage.

USC finished the first half with a flurry of booming three pointers as it went on a 14-4 run for a 53-38 lead.

The Webmasters tried to come back in the third canto as they exclusively went to Fajardo, who scored 15 points in that stretch.

But the Warriors had every answer against UC to continue to lead by 15, 82-65, heading into the final canto.

The fourth period saw a breakthrough for UC as it continued to pound the ball down low to Fajardo, who delivered 18 of his game-high 38 points in that stretch.

A basket and a free-throw by Raf Ramos finally got the Webmasters to within 98-99 with less than two minutes remaining in the ballgame.

However, the Warriors refused to crumble and quickly responded with a fearless putback by Hermosa.

A crucial rebound by Giovanni Padillo led to a knifing left-handed layup by Fil-Aussie Emel Rowe to peg the score at 103-98. Gene Gallarde put the Webmasters away with a three-pointer from the baseline with 45.3 ticks remaining.

Padillo and Hermosa were both unstoppable as they scored 28 points each. UC dropped to 2-3 (win-loss).

USC (110) Hermosa 28, Padillo 28, Cantonao 15, Cortes 10, Gallarde 8, Rowe 7, Bercede 3, Bakker 3, Joven 3, Igao 2, Blanes 1.
UC (101) Fajardo 38, Ramos 17, Abella 10, Pao 10, Mohamad 9, Flanco 8, Luceno 3, Agas 2, Quilantang 2.

i think the best thing that the coach can do is to make the returnees fight for their spots. it's unfair to the reserves that these guys be given free passage considering the reason why they sitout for a year.

11-18-2008, 12:34 PM

University of San Carlos started strong in the 1st Quarter as they rode to a 3-13 run behind Padillo's 3/3 shooting from the 3pt line. They extended their lead to 13pts when Hermosa converted a reverse lay-up and a bonus freethrow when he was fouled by Tagarda of XU. Xavier answered back with 2 straight baskets ending the Quarter 8-16 in favor of USC Warriors. Early in the 2nd Quarter, Xavier U cut USC's lead down to 3 with 7:42 remaining in the Quarter as they scored 5 straight points. From their, both teams traded baskets but USC was still in the lead 17-22 with Hermosa scoring the last 6pts for USC. With 1:02 remaining in the half, Joven of USC stole the ball and converted a lay-up extending their lead to 9. Once again, Xavier answered back with 4 straight points courtesy of Ampuan's back-to-back baskets, cutting the lead to 5 and ending the Quarter 24-29 in favor of USC. In the 3rd Quarter, Xavier rallied back from 5 pts down and rode to a 7-2 blast to tie the score 31 all with 7:48 remaining in the Quarter, but USC countered back and scored 6 straight points, once again regained the lead 31-37. With 5:35 minutes remaining in the 3rd, it was Xavier's turn to make a run and scored 8 straight points, the last 3, courtesy of Jan Siarot scoring a basket plus a foul, and Xavier got their first taste of the lead 39-37 with 4:32 left in the Quarter. Xavier ended the Quarter strong, making a 6-2 run, ending the Quarter 51-47. In the 4th Quarter, the game became more intense, and just when all people thought Xavier was already in control of the game, USC scored 9 straight points with Gallardo and Joven converting 3 straight 3 point baskets, and USC regained the lead 59-61 with only 3:46 left in the final Quarter. Xavier began to rattle and they couldn't buy a basket as the Warriors defended them well w/ their pesky man-to-man defense. USC then scored 4pts in their next 2 possessions extending their lead to 6 with only 1:48 remaining. From there, Xavier continued to struggle including in the free throwline and Xavier kept on fouling USC and hoped that they will miss their freethrows but Pallardo and Joven converted 4 out of 8 freethrows for USC and they were in the lead 63-68 with 0:10 seconds remaining in the game. Xavier then called a timeout and JP Erram converted a 3pt basket at the right corner cutting the lead to 2 with only 3 seconds left in the game. Then they immediately fouled Joven but he sanked 1/2 in the freethrow line leading by 3, 66-69, with 1sec left in the game. In the final possession, Xavier missed a desperation shot from the halfcourt and the USC Warriors won the game 66-69.

Congratulations USC Warriors! :)

ok game story mo ah, hehe...Xavier earned its respect from Philippine basketball fans by giving both FEU and USC a good fight. XU should keep building on its program and they will be a force to reckon with in the near future

JP Erram & Jan Siarot still have 4 more years in college. These guys have a lot of room to improve. Both of them are the cornerstone of Xavier U Crusaders. So, I have a lot of reasons to be optimistic. ;D

Sana you get to keep them. Marami gustong kumuha sa kanila.

Now that Llanto is no longer eligible to play in the CESAFI, I hope that USC Warriors' coaching staff can come up with a strategy how to fill up the gap at the center spot. Cortes is really a versatile player but he is undersized for that position. I would suggest that they should try searching abroad for fil-am big men.

we have already identified quite a number of prospects heights ranging from 6'5 to 6'8(around 3 of them) ;)

To have a much better chance of playing in the PBA or at least in the PBL, it is wise for a cebuano to showcase his talents in Manila-based collegiate basketball leagues. But how about if a really talented player from here can't bear the expenses of staying in Manila? No problem coach Yayoy will surely let him play in his multi-titled team.....but, the sad reality is: most of the PBA players right now are from manila-based collegiate basketball leagues. The worst for him: a six foot plus tempura or balut vendor...
How could we improve our amateur leagues here??????? so that maybe next year a cebuano team can the champion in the not so Sweet 16 at least for now? Let's care for cebuano basketball.....tagay ta brad...

12-04-2008, 11:35 AM
its a sad reality indeed. Gone were the times where a Mon Fernandez came out of USC, a John Ferriols, Abet Guidaben and Roger Yap came out of USJ-R, Rhoel Gomez, Dondon Hontiveros and Dodie Rams came out of UC, Boy Cabahug, Al Solis, and Bonel Balingit came out of UV, a Jojo Tangkay, Dodie Miego came out of SWU, Junthy Valenzuela and Jimwell Torion came out of Salazar Institute, Gilbert Demape came out of CIT and made it all the way to the PBA.

Bleachertalk said it well that Manila teams may have been 2 or 3 steps ahead in development, but I am personally hoping that Cebu basketball leaders are doing something that should close that gap. It is rather important for Cebu to be able to retain talents and develop them to their full potential but certain things need to be in place such as the proper conditioning and nutrition environment, better coaching, as well as better media exposure

11-06-2009, 07:55 AM
looks like USC is headed for the Sweet 16 for a 2nd straight year beating WNU 71-58 in the Zonals. A win over HTC should clinch that

(The Freeman) |

Updated August 13, 2013 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines - The University of San Carlos (USC) SBP team is on a roll and is virtually unstoppable. The defending champions coasted to their fourth straight win with a 63-22 annihilation of the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) at the resumption of the SBP division games of the BEST SBP Passerelle Twin Tournament at the USC North Gym. USC jumped on their opponents from the opening tip, outscoring them 11-1 in the first period. The lead grew to 29-5 at halftime and it was cruise control through the last two periods.

Antonio Czar Octaviano led USC with 12 points while Vince Razo added 10.

In other games of the SBP division played over the long weekend, the University of the Visayas (UV) outlasted Sacred Heart School Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC), 32-26, while CEC stopped SHS-AdC, 51-27.

In Passerelle division, USC scored its second straight win via a thrilling 67-62 win over Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu. Down 31-19 at halftime, USC clawed back slowly but surely by going to their press in the third quarter and cutting the lead to 50-46 going into the payoff period.

USC then kicked off the fourth quarter with an 11-0 run to take the lead for good at 57-50. SHS-AdC countered to cut the lead to 60-58, but USC stretched the lead to 65-60 to put the game out of reach.

John Galinato led USC with 15 points while Scott Aying added 13.

In other Passerelle division games, UV jumped on SWU, 72-10, while Cebu Eastern College stopped USJR, 93-36.

USC coach apologizes to Cesafi head, league

Cebu Daily News

9:27 am | Thursday, August 29th, 2013

THE University of San Carlos Baby Warriors’ head coach Britt Carlo Reroma has apologized to the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) for the recent trouble that he has found himself in and added that “he has nothing but the highest respect for league commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy.”

Reroma got himself in hot water after Tiukinhoy recommended that the latter be suspended for a year for what was allegedly an “unethical conduct” during their first game last Aug. 3 at the Cebu Coliseum.

The brouhaha stemmed from Reroma’s attempt to field center Scott Aying into their game against the University of the Visayas Baby Lancers 3 in spite of the latter’s floating status at the time.

Later, Aying was decided to be ineligible to play this season after suiting up for Don Bosco back in 2011. League rules state that players transferring from one Cesafi member school to another must serve a two-year residency.

“Mr. Reroma acted arrogantly in fielding in Mr. Aying as he fully knows that Mr. Aying is not qualified to play,” narrated Tiukinhoy in his incident report.

According to Reroma in his letter to Cesafi president Fr. Manny A. Uy, he said that he was merely following school orders after a letter appealing Aying’s eligibility was furnished by USC’s Basic Education Director, Fr. Felino Javines to the league’s screening committee headed by Tiukinhoy.

During the second period of the said game, seeing as Aying was getting ready to check in to the game, Tiukinhoy approached the USC bench and told Reroma that he not put in the youngster or run the risk of completely forfeiting the match.

Reroma said that he heeded Tiukinhoy’s warning “since I respect him as our Commissioner.” /Correspondent Jonas Panerio

USC takes third spot after elimination round with 80-59 rout of USJ-R Jaguars

By Jonas Panerio

Cebu Daily News

7:32 am | Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

Games today:

USJ-R Basak

5 p.m. – UV vs. UC

6:45 p.m. – USC vs. CIT-U

The University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors emphatically took the third seed heading to the quarterfinal round as they battered the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars, 80-59, at the close of the elimination round of the 13th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. men’s basketball tournament last night at the Cebu Coliseum.

The Warriors got off to a fast start and repeatedly turned back several comeback attempts by the Jaguars to claim the win and finish the elimination round with a 4-2 (win-loss) record.

USC will face off against the sixth-seeded University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters on Friday, armed with a twice-to-beat advantage.

USJ-R, on the other hand, will face the Cebu Institute of Technology-University (CIT-U) Wildcats tomorrow. The Jaguars will also have a twice-to-beat bonus by virtue of their top four finish.

Victor Rabat got the Warriors off to a fast start by scoring seven of his 19 points in that pivotal first period. He also sealed the victory with a three-pointer, his fourth of the game, that put USC on top by 20, 70-50, with 4:51 remaining.

Import Ahmed Salihou and Stephen Que tallied 12 points each while Christian Laude chipped in 10 markers for USC, which set the tone of the game early as they led, 17-4. The Jaguars came within nine on several occasions but the Warriors broke the game wide open with a 14-0 blast led by Rabat, Que and Ian Ortega for a 56-32 lead late in the third.

USJ-R was led by the 12 of Miguel Tabaloc and the 11 of Christian Parker.

In the juniors division, the UC Baby Webmasters spoiled the Cebu Eastern College (CEC) Dragons’ bid for the second seed with a 77-72 win.

Justine Dacalos was the biggest thorn on CEC’s side as he scored 29 points to push UC to a 3-5 record, good for the seventh seed in the next round.

UC will be tangling with the second-seeded University of the Visayas (UV) Baby Lancers (6-2) while the third-seeded USC Baby Warriors (6-2) will be facing off against the CIT-U Wildkittens (3-5).

Both UV and USC will be armed with a twice-to-beat advantage. The Dragons’ loss dropped them to 5-3. Worse, it had dire consequences as they now must face the fifth seeded University of Southern Philippines Foundation Baby Panthers in the quarterfinal round.

Cobras take Game One with gritty 64-52 win over UV

By Jonas Panerio

Cebu Daily News

8:04 am | Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

The defending champions Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras dug deep to outlast the University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers, 64-52, in Game One of the best-of-five championship series of the Cesafi men’s basketball tournament before a raucous crowd at the Cebu Coliseum yesterday.

With their most productive player of the night Daryl Goloran and top import Landry Sanjo fouling out one after another late in the game, the Cobras turned to the crucial makes of Bernie Bregondo, Monbert Arong and Mark Jayven Tallo to log the win and take a step closer towards a second straight title.

SWU’s golden boy Mark Jayven Tallo played out of rhythm most of the game when ranged against the physical defense of UV but luckily had Goloran—a reserve forward—step up to lead the team with 13 points and eight rebounds.

Sanjo finished with 10 points, 14 boards and four blocked shots while Arong added nine points and five rebounds.

Tallo gave up the ball eight times but made up for it with eight points, six rebounds and seven assists, including two straight drop passes in the dying seconds to Arong and Fabrice Siewe that led to buckets which doused UV’s comeback attempts.

“We really had to solve the double-teams that they were throwing at (Mark Jayven) Tallo,” said SWU coach Yayoy Alcoseba. “At first, he kept on forcing the issue but I told him to stay at it and find the open man. Fortunately for us, he did it in the end.”

The Cobras’ fluid offense was subdued by the deliberate pace of the Lancers early on but the former was still able to find ways to score and take a 49-39 lead to the final canto. UV persevered behind the surprise performance of Miko Marquez, who sparked a 13-5 run that got them within five, 54-49.

Compounding the woes of the Cobras were the disqualification of Goloran at the 3:47 mark and Sanjo with 2:13 remaining.

Mike Nzuesseu and Wowie Escosio had 12 apiece for UV while Marquez wound up with 10.

In the first game, the University of San Carlos (USC) Baby Warriors took a 1-0 lead in their best-of-three series for third place with an 82-72 win over the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Baby Jaguars.

Game Two of the both series will be played tomorrow at the same venue.
