Richard Gomez buckles down to work as 18th Asian Games Chef de Mission

Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez began his first official activity as the country’s Chef de Mission to the 18th Asian Games in Indonesia this year by sitting down with the joint technical working group of the Philippine Olympic Committee and the Philippine Sports Commission at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in Manila on Friday. “We have only four months left before the Asian Games,” said Gomez who immediately buckled down to work upon his appointment as CDM by newly-elected POC President Ricky Vargas. Budget, medical and administrative staffing, delegation size and quotas as well as provisions like luggage, track suits and parade uniforms were among the matters discussed by the 2018 Asian Games Task Force. Gomez imparted that they will not be veering away much from the estimated team size given by previously-tasked 18th AG CDM Julian Camacho.   "We still do not have the final numbers, but there will be not much difference from the previous projection," Gomez clarified, with adjustment seen to be applied for measurable sports. “We are strongly considering the inclusion of men’s basketball and women’s volleyball,” he added.  He also expressed his pleasure in seeing good coordination between Judo and Kurash. PSC Chairman William Ramirez said during the meeting that he shall respect whatever number (delegation size and composition) Gomez will endorse for support of the PSC. “We leave the decision to the POC. The PSC shall support as best we can,” Ramirez remarked. Ramirez also gave orders to assemble a medical team from the PSC’s Philippine Sports Institute to assist Asian Games-bound athletes. This is not the first time Gomez will be leading a delegation to battle in a multi-sporting event.  He was also the Chef de Mission in the 2014 Phuket Asian Beach Games, where the Philippines reached its best finish since the game’s inception in 2008 held in Bali, Indonesia......»»

NCAA: Red Cubs, Staglets boost bids for Final Four

STANDINGS LSGH 10-2 MAPUA 9-3 SAN BEDA 9-4 JRU 7-6 PERPETUAL 5-6 ARELLANO 5-6 LPU 5-7 SAN SEBASTIAN 5-8 LETRAN 3-8 EAC 2-10 San Beda High School stayed within striking distance of the top two and San Sebastian College-Recoletos stayed alive and kicking in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament. The two teams made sure the Final Four remained a nine-team race following separate well-earned wins on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The Red Cubs stood strong in the middle periods to take care of business against Emilio Aguinaldo College, 80-71. Winderlich Coyoca built on his breakout game the last time around with 18 points, four steals, two rebounds, and two assists in this one while Winston Ynot and Kent Pelipel chipped in 13 and 11 markers, respectively. Trailing by one after the opening salvo, San Beda turned it on and dominate their opponents by a score of 46-32 in the second and third quarters. That double-digit lead would be more than enough for their ninth win in the last 11 games following a 0-2 start to the season. At 9-4, the Red Cubs are breathing down the necks of top two teams 10-2 College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills and 9-3 Mapua High School. Third-running San Beda also gained separation from fourth-running Jose Rizal High School after it fell to the Staglets, 51-56. Milo Janao did the heavy lifting as always with 19 points and seven rebounds while JP Timbancaya contributed 10 markers and six boards of his own. Behind those two, the Staglets took the fight out of their opponents and charged to 5-8 – still well in contention in the tournament. John Amores paced the Light Bombers with 16 points on top of seven rebounds and three assists. He was the lone scorer in double-digits, however, and as such, saw his squad fail to build on its big-time upset of the Red Robins a week ago. Still, with a 7-6 record, JRU stayed at solo fourth all of University of Perpetual Help (5-6), Arellano High School (5-6), Lycuem of the Philippines University (5-7), Baste (3-8), and even Colegio de San Juan de Letran (3-8) right behind. Meanwhile, the loss pushed the Brigadiers to the brink now at 2-10.

Guiao on being permanent PH coach: ‘If they give it to me formally, I will accept it’

The moment Chot Reyes resigned as national coach, Yeng Guiao was put in the spotlight. He whipped a two-week old squad into fighting form for the Asian Games despite its top player, Jordan Clarkson, joining the team just five days before the tournament started. He kept a suspension-crippled Gilas Pilipinas in the thick of things against Iran until he ran out of tricks to offset the team's hypothermia-hit shooting in Tehran. There is no other coach in the horizon that would be a suitable successor to Reyes' post. But Guiao refused to address the issue until he was done with the Fiba qualifying window he was tasked with. And as that window came to a close via a closed-door 92-81 victo...Keep on reading: Guiao on being permanent PH coach: ‘If they give it to me formally, I will accept it’.....»»

Ahanmisi is hands down Player of the Week after shooting down Ateneo

An opening ceremony as grand as the one the 81st Season of the UAAP had needed an athletic endeavor to match the grandeur - and luckily, there was one hooper who delivered. After Filipino hearthrob James Reid, K-Pop star Minzy, and NBA champion and MVP Steph Curry opened the weekend, Adamson's Jerrick Ahanmisi gladly closed it. From highlight plays to clutch buckets, Ahanmisi had it all as he led the Soaring Falcons to a 74-70 shocker over defending champion Ateneo to be hailed as the season's first Chooks-to-Go/UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week. The Filipino-Nigerian edged out UP’s Juan Gomez de Liaño, National U's Dave Ildefonso, and FEU’s Arvin Tolentino for the weekly plum handed by scribes from print and online covering the beat. Without a doubt, Adamson wouldn’t have pulled off the upset if not for the efforts of Ahanmisi who put up 23 points, on 8-of-17 shooting, while grabbing four rebounds. The third-year swingman's offensive production was the highest for the opening weekend and included a mesmerizing buzzer-beating halfcourt shot that gave Adamson a 40-39 lead heading into the halftime break. His highlights, however, weren’t just for the early parts of the game as he had his hand in Adamson’s crunch time sets. With the game tied, Ahanmisi was given the isolation play off of head coach Franz Pumaren’s timeout and delivered with a clutch layup that gave his team a 70-68 lead with 1:09 left to play. Not long after, they finished the job in their first conquest of the Blue Eagles since 2016......»»
