Arao Shines Brightly For Ateneo

by JP Abcede

The sun was not out Sunday afternoon for UAAP men’s basketball because Claiford Arao was inside Cuneta Astrodome, working overtime in Ateneo de Manila University’s win against a relentless Adamson University, 69-63, on July 8.

Arao’s ten points before fouled out :19.7 left of extra time was more than enough buffer for the Blue Eagles.


“Basta inisip ko kailangang manalo,” said the Ateneo giant, fighting off Roel Hugnatan, Jan Colina, or whoever the AdU defense sent his way.


Arao ticked a double-double with 20 points and 15 rebounds. Jai Reyes contributed 11.


“Sometimes, we have to win ugly,” said ADMU head coach Norman Black.


Patrick Cabahug, who sent the game into OT with his leaner at the buzzer, led the Falcons with 28 points and 11 rebounds. Fellow veteran Roel Hugnatan followed with 14 and 11.


Adamson almost mirrored the first game the day before initiating an 11-0 rally.


“Nobody plans a bad start,” Black mentioned. “It just happened.”


Cabahug, Hugnatan, and Leo Canuday led the first quarter surge for the Soaring Falcons.


Ateneo de Manila took the reigns in the next ten minutes as the San Marcelino-based squad found the lid closed for almost half of the second period. Jobe Nkemakolam casted the first die with four consecutive points and ended by a Reyes trey, 18-22, 7:53.


Error followed violation for the Falcons before Hugnatan faded off Rabeth Al-Hussaini from a post-up stance to score Adamson’s first points of the second quarter. Chris Tiu and Reyes then stringed five points to make it 25-28, 1:05. Cabahug finished the period with a nifty fade away turnaround from the corner.


Tiu was able to tie the score at 30-all via three freethrows off a foul from Paul Gonzalgo, but the Eagles eventually took the upper hand with Arao’s charities, 36-35, 3:10 in the third. This started a 9-2 blast that closed the quarter.


Nkemakolam laid it in to give Ateneo a nine-point lead, 48-39, 7:59. However, they got stuck at that score for seven minutes as Cabahug boomed a three-pointer off Ken Barracoso, 51-48, 1:19 to go.


“That is what kept the game close,” enthused Black. “We could not make our freethrows and outside shots.


Al-Hussaini registered a three-point play while Tiu sank two charities to retake the lead for the blue and white, 53-51. In the final play, Cabahug escaped Barracoso’s defense and leaned in for a buzzer-beater.


Arao then took over as he made the Katipunan-based team’s first eight points in extension period, 61-55.


Ateneo’s next task for the season is University of the Philippines on July 12.


“Obviously, we have a lot of adjustments to do,” Black pointed out.

My take on the Tigers for this 1st game of the season:

1. Badua was great especially at the start. He knows when to look for his own shot and when to attack & pass to an open teammate. Unfortunately, he made some crucial errors in the 2nd half. Badua needs to step up and help Jerby Cruz I know he have huge shoes to filled due to Duncil's idea to enter the PBA Draft.

2. Jervy was impressive as usual except for his foul trouble which limited him. And good thing the sprain he got in the 1st quarter was a minor one. ( Jerby Norm 16 Points, 9 rebounds and a couple of Block Shoots.

3. Anthony and Dylan were both non-factors in the game. Taylor and Japs were the ones giving ample support to Jervy. Japs being one of the smaller player in the court at 5'7 blow away the defense of the UE RED Warriors.

4. Mirza looks promising while Basa did not get enough playing time to show his game.

5. They lost out on 2 factors; rebounding and outside shooting.

Anyway, congrats to UE.

Kaya pa yan UST Tigers!

Power Rankings

Week 1 (by Sidney Ventura)


Ford Arao (ADMU) – Ford Arao. Power Rankings. Somehow, those were two sets of words you never thought you'd see together -- until Arao's 20-points, 15-rebound effort against Adamson last Sunday. The oft-maligned big man came through with 10 points in the extra period to help the Blue Eagles escape the upset axe. But can he keep it up?

Cholo Villanueva (DLSU) – The underrated off-guard highlighted La Salle's triumphant return after a one-year absence by chalking up 19 points (on 7-of-13 shooting) and four rebounds, while again reminding everyone that Migs De Asis can’t play defense. The savvy veteran next goes up against Leo Canuday and the Falcons.

Joseph Lingao-lingao (NU) – The Bulldogs' big man was a force in the middle last Saturday against FEU, logging stats of 17 points, 13 rebounds and five blocks as NU staved off the Tamaraws in overtime. The one blemish on his game line: 3-of-10 shooting from the foul stripe. But make no mistake, the guy's gonna be dominant this season.

Patrick Cabahug (AdU) – The sweet-shooting Cabahug just couldn’t do it by himself last Sunday, try as he might. Even though he sent the game into overtime with a brilliant floater at the buzzer, his 28 points and 11 rebounds weren't enough to prevent Adamson from losing to Ateneo for the 22nd straight time. But you have to admire his determination, plus his output was the highest of any player over the weekend.

Edwin Asoro (NU) – An almost identical stat line with Lingao-lingao (17-13), only difference is he shot even worse from the stripe (1-of-10). As long as NU keeps winning the versatile forward should remain in the top five.

James Mangahas (DLSU) – Perhaps the least-heralded of La Salle's starting five, Mangahas made the most of his elevation to starter status by scoring 14 points and grabbing seven boards last Saturday. If he plays like this consistently the Archers will be even more deadly.

Mark Borboran (UE) – Borboran led a balanced UE attack last Sunday with 13 points and four boards, going perfect from 2-point land (5-of-5). But like the two NU stalwarts, he needs to practice his free throws (0-of-4).

Jervy Cruz (UST) – My early bet for MVP got off to a good start statistically, scoring 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting and hauling down nine boards. Too bad the defending champs got manhandled by UE. But expect him to average a double-double again this season.

Roel Hugnatan (AdU) – Foul trouble slowed him down in the second half, but the Falcons' big man still put up decent numbers of 14 points and 11 rebounds. If only he had made his shots in the fourth period, Adamson could have registered an upset.

James Martinez (UE) – The converted point guard knocked down two crucial triples in the fourth to help the Warriors put away the UST Tigers for good. He went on to finish with 12 points and three assists.

UST vs. FEU Saturday


This one is a tough call based on the performance of both teams last week. UST got crushed in the fourth while FEU managed a comeback but ran out of gas in OT. Hmmm.... I'll go for UST by the slimmest of margins.

Three Keys for UST to win:

1. Jervy Cruz all day. Jervy disappeared in the 2nd half against UE and as the Tiger's best player (and offensive weapon) he has to constantly put pressure on opposing defenses with his scoring and offensive rebounding. If Lingao-lingao and Asoro were able to dominate the paint against FEU Jervy should be able to do the same.

2. Make the freebies. Japs and Jervy are not really money from the line but they've got to make at least 70% of their foul shots. 14/25 FT shooting is a common sight in college basketball but UST has to understand that they don't have a wide array of offensive weapons unlike last year so they have to take advantage of every opportunity to score.

3. Anthony Espiritu. 0/5 in 22 minutes of action with 5 turnovers. Anthony Espiritu has failed to follow-up on his strong Final Four and Finals performance a year ago. He failed to show patience and also showed instances of hesitancy. He's got to be more aggressive against FEU because Jervy needs all the help he could get.

Three Keys for FEU to win:

1. Set the player rotation. Capacio used every Tamaraw at his disposal but he has to come up with a set rotation so that he has continuity. He could still be finding the right mix of players but I think it would be best if he has a set rotation of 9 or 10 players.

2. Shoot the damn ball: 9/22 Freethrows and 5/27 3-point field goals. That's just plain horrible. It's too horrible I've ran out of words.

3. Play defense early and often. The only time FEU really locked down on D was in the late stages of the 3rd and the entire 4th. If they fail to play consistent defense I'm sure UST will take full advantage of this.

^ I believe UST will make the Final 4 but with the twice to beat DISADVANTAGE. they lost to a rookie-laden FEU squad by a big margin. hey, you are the defending champs! UST will be crushed by DLSU when they meet. DLSU will lead by as much as 20points if UST will continue to play that way.

my final 4: (in order)
1. DLSU
2. UE
3. UST
4. NU or ADMU(but, i think NU has the advantage over admu)

Mark Agustin is already 22 yrs.old the last time i saw him play is in the PBL Last Conference. Maybe he have some academic deficiencies that is why he is not included in the Adamson Falcon Roster.

FEU’s Youngsters Lead Charge Against UST

by JP Abcede

The rookies played like veterans as Far Eastern University took advantage of University of Santo Tomas’ atrocious shooting, 81-66, to hand the Tiger’ second UAAP men’s basketball defeat this season on July 14 at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

“Masaya dahil first win. Tinalo pa namin defending champion,” FEU coach Glenn Capacio beamed. “Nakakataba ng puso.”



The Tamaraws led by as much as 24 with a Sanny Abaring three-point shot early in the fourth quarter then held off a UST scare in the final minutes to secure the victory.



Paul Sanga and Marlon Adolfo shared topscoring honors for the Tams with 15 points. Ric Cawaling put out 11 markers and four assists.



Jervy Cruz led UST with 19 points and 22 rebounds, 17 offensive. Khasim Mirza figured in the late comeback and finished with 11.



Japs Cuan had ten markers on 4/13 shooting from the field and 1/6 at the freethrow line. He also had 14 boards, four assists, and two steals.



The backbreaker for Santo Tomas is that they only shot 28%, 4/28 from beyond the arc, and missed almost half of their freethrow attempts.



FEU is tied with idle National University, who they lost to at opening day, at 1-1.



One would have realized there was trouble brewing in the black, gold, and white squad when Far Eastern stormed to an 11-2 start. Adolfo and Cawaling teamed together to string a 12-0 breakaway to end the first period.



Alfred Gerilla gave the Tams’ their biggest lead of the first 20 minutes with a basket midway of the second quarter, 38-17 is the score.



It became apparent that things were not going in favor of the Espańa-based campus when they made only 20% of their shots in the first half. It was highlighted when Cruz could not finish his putbacks while Cuan found it hard to drive the lane with his patented layups.



With USTe at a loss, the green and gold was about to coast when they erected a 24-point bubble in the fourth period. However, Mark Canlas started a rally, which was continued by Cuan and Mirza.



Cruz’s freethrow turned it into a single-digit margin a few seconds before the game hit the last two minutes, 63-72. Mark Barroca, though, ended the run with a jump shot at the key.



The Tigers were stopped in their tracks when Cruz was called for three fouls, the last one an unsportsmanlike violation against Ron Cabagnot and the Morayta-based crew getting the offensive glass from missed freebies.



“Sa Thursday, sana ganito rin ipakita ng mga bata,” the rookie mentor hoped, who would be next facing nemesis De La Salle University on July 19. “Beatable din sila. Hindi pa (lang) namin nakikita weaknesses ng (De) La Salle.”



As for DLSU coach Franz Pumaren’s charge that the rookie-laden Far Eastern roster are actually composed of veterans, Capacio answered, “Rookies talaga ito. Ages 18, 19, 20 lang sila. May potential lang. Mga bata talaga ito.”

Jerby Cruz for Season 70 MVP...

Tigers Find Rhythm In Time to Beat Falcons

by JP Abcede
The events of the University of Santo Tomas victory against Adamson University, 96-84, at Ninoy Aquino Stadium on July 19 for their UAAP men’s basketball game nearly resembled the previous night’s PBA Finals.



Advertisement: UBelt.com's Virtual Team Manager (VTM) is back! Click here to play and win prizes!

Just like Talk N’ Text, the Falcons had a blistering first quarter only to sputter later on as Francis Allera bundled a UST comeback in the second period with his three-point baskets.


The Growling Tigers broke away for good in the final canto with main Falcon Patrick Jan Cabahug fouling out midway to make things easier. Who else but Allera gave Santo Tomas’ biggest lead with a three-pointer, 94-78, 2:09.


“Naga-adjust pa rin kami,” confessed UST coach Pido Jarencio. “Malaking bagay si Jojo (Duncil).” He had to instill on his players that they should move on from the recent crisis of losing their top player.


As to when would the adjustments take effect, “As soon as possible,” Jarencio stressed. “Ang laro dire-diretso.” Speaking of, their next game would be on Saturday against struggling University of the Philippines.


Allera lighted the board with 26 points, going 6/10 from the three-point area, plus grabbing eight rebounds. Jervy Cruz had 24, making hay at the freethrow line, making 14 of 17. He also heaved 23 boards.


Japs Cuan and Mark Canlas were the other double digit scorers for USTe with 11 and ten, respectively.


The Tigers burned the nets with 10/33 shooting from the three-point country and 19 second chance points.


Roel Hugnatan carried the Soaring Falcons with 32 points, shooting 13/24, and eight rebounds. Cabahug had another double-double game with 24 and ten. Leo Canuday was good for 12 and six.


AdU unleashed a 10-1 blitz in the first quarter with big guys Hugnatan and Junard Yambot leading the attack. Allera was already working on the comeback, swishing two threes before the quarter ended.


Although they trailed in the first ten minutes, the Tigers did not commit a single foul. However, Jarencio saw it differently, “Siguro hindi kami aggressive.”


Cortez catalyzed the three-point barrage in the second period with Allera following it with two more, the Tigers only down by one, 27-28, 8:19. Adamson was able to expand the gap once more to nine before Allera made another triple. The last five minutes of the half saw the San Marcelino-based squad make only six points as Dylan popped a one-hander one minute to go, 47-43, UST up.


Cabahug was a virtual one-man show at the middle part of the third quarter, tying together six points, 60-54. That was however the last Adamson spurt as Cruz made the go ahead freethrows, 65-64, entering the final ten minutes of the match.


Cuan initiated the big fourth quarter run with seven points, while Allera took care the middle part with four straight, and Cruz finishing it with a quick foray to the goal, 84-71, 3:59. Cruz’s three-point play off Rey Gorospe and Allera’s trey turned it into an unreachable 94-78 count.
