Gutsy Batangas crowned as first-ever king of MPBL

On the ground for the very first time in the playoffs of the inaugural Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) Anta Rajah Cup, Batangas wasted no time in standing back up. And not only did they stand up, the Athletics also marched forward, right through overmatched Muntinlupa, 68-66, to claim the throne as first-ever kings of the new national league. Big guns Bong Quinto and Paul Varilla as well as key reserve Moncrief Rogado all came to play and made sure the visitors didn’t waste another shot at history. Quinto wound up with 12 points, Varilla had 10 points and nine rebounds, and Rogado dropped a season-high 14 points of his own. Two days ago, Batangas suffered its first setback in the playoffs and saw their opponents cut their deficit in the best-of-five series to 1-2. “There’s no safe lead. We were up by 15 tapos nawala diba,” head coach Mac Tan said. Indeed, Pari Llagas and Dave Moralde yet again willed the Cagers in this one, rallying them from as much as 15 points down to up 65-63 inside the last two minutes. Quinto and Jhaymo Eguilos had the answer for the Athletics, however, and connived for five unanswered points and a 68-65 advantage in their favor. With 18.2 ticks to go on the clock, the home team still had several shots to force overtime, or even win the game, but Moralde and Llagas combined to convert only one of their four free throws. The clutch makes of Quinto and Eguilos, along with the crucial misses of Moralde and Llagas, proved to be more than enough for Batangas to take home the title. “Ang adjustment namin, yung willingness ng players na ayaw na nilang bumalik pa ‘to ng Batangas,” Tan said. The well-earned win was just the perfect ending for a maiden campaign which saw them romp through the eliminations and rise as the top-seed of the playoffs and the favorites for the title. The Athletics only lived up to the hype, sweeping both the quarterfinals and the semifinals then ringing off back-to-back wins in the championship round before losing Game 3. Bouncing back big-time in Game 4, they cap off their playoff run with a standout 7-1 record. For Muntinlupa, Llagas topped the scoring column with 19 points to go along with 14 rebounds and two blocks. Moralde chipped in 14 markers, seven boards, and two assists. They will be looking back at their woes from the line as the foremost reason why their conference has come to a close. In all, they muffed on 15 of 31 free throws that, without a doubt, would have changed the complexion of the contest. BOX SCORES BATANGAS 68 – Rogado 14, Quinto 12, Varilla 10, Teodoro 9, Eguilos 7, Santos 6, Acuna 5, Olayon 4, Villamor 1, Grimaldo 0, Alvarez 0, Pasculado 0 MUNTINUPA 66 – Llagas 19, Moralde 14, Reverente 12, Mangahas 11, Ylagan 7, Jaime 3, Apreku 0, Vergara 0, Stevens 0 QUARTER SCORES: 16-12, 43-28, 54-47, 68-66 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

MPBL inaugural champ Batangas sends statement at expense of QC

Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League inaugural champion Batangas has wasted no time in proving it remains one of the top teams now in the 2018 Anta Datu Cup. Leaning on former pros Bong Galanza and Dennice Villamor, the Athletics fought off a late rally by expansion team Quezon City for a 95-90 decision on Wednesday at the Caloocan Sports Complex. Galanza, who last played for Mahindra (now Columbian), was red-hot in his league debut and wound up with a game-high 28 points while former Ginebra Gin King Villamor had for himself a 20-point, 12-rebound double-double in their season-opening win. It was also those two who connived in the fourth, delivering the clutch makes even as the Capitals had a 31-point outburst in the quarter. The two new recruits were backstopped by a couple of players who had already played for Batangas when they won the championship last conference. Paul Varilla tallied 15 points, seven rebounds, and five assists while Teytey Teodoro chipped in 11 markers of his own. QC was at the losing end in its debut even after ex-PBA D-League standout Jay Collado’s 21-point, 12-rebound effort as well as 19 points from former University of Sto. Tomas hero Jojo Duncil. Meanwhile, home team Caloocan made good use of its homecourt advantage, burying Pasig in the final frame for a 91-81 come-from-behind win. The Supremos (1-0) had six players in double-digits led by Mar Villahermosa who had 18 points on top of six rebounds and three assists. Bernzon Franco paced the Pirates (0-1) with 15 points. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Bataan keeps rising in MPBL

The Bataan Risers are now beginning to pick up their second wind in the 2018-2019 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Datu Cup, this after the squad posted yet another tough win last Monday at the packed People’s Center in Bataan.   Bataan has added Muntinlupa to its growing list of victims as the up and coming squad repulsed last season’s runner-up, 67-63, to continue staying on top of the standings. The win enabled the  Risers to improve their win-loss record to 19-2. They are the No.1 seed in the tough northern division and are already assured of a top four berth and home court advantage in the playoffs.   But head coach Jojo Lastimosa would rather want to see his team staying on top for a better reason.   “If we get the No.1 spot, we’ll be having home court advantage in each round in the playoffs,” added Lastimosa. “We want to win our remaining games as we want to carry the momentum all the way to the playoffs.”   Beating Muntinlupa was a great test and the Risers were able to live up to the challenge posed by the formidable Cagers team that battled the host squad toe-to-toe.   The biggest play of the night happened in the closing seconds of the game made possible by prized guard Yvan Ludovice.   Picked up in the free agency after being released by Pasay, Ludovice challenged the defense of Muntinlupa then fed Rob Celiz for the marginal basket that ensured the Risers’ victory.   Muntinlupa suffered its third straight loss and fell to a 12-8 card. It’s the second time this season that the Cagers have lost three in a row and the latest setback put them just half a game ahead of closest pursuer Batangas City Athletics in the southern division.   Earlier, Laguna turned to Ralph Olivarez and frontliner Raymond Ilagan as the Heroes outplayed the Valenzuela Classic, 74-66, in    Olivarez finished with 20 points while Ilagan had a double-double performance of 15 points and 17 rebounds as the Heroes stayed in the hunt for a playoff berth by improving their win-loss record to 10-13, good for eighth spot.   The loss was a crucial one for Valenzuela, which dropped to an 8-14 record and fell to 11th spot. Its chances of catching a top eight berth has been reduced from slim to none at all. .....»»

Ateneo imposes will on UV to be crowned kings of PCCL

Blue Eagle, the king, in all of the Philippines. At least, that’s what Ateneo de Manila University can now claim after outclassing University of the Visayas, 95-71, on Monday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in the Finals of the 2019 Philippine Collegiate Champions League. The UAAP champions still didn’t have their full-force lineup, but, as they have been trained to do in head coach Tab Baldwin’s system, each and every active player did their part in securing the convincing victory. Isaac Go had 15 points to lead four other teammates in double-digits. Brilliant throughout their championship campaign, he was also recognized as the tournament’s MVP. Thirdy Ravena then contributed 12 points, four assists, and three rebounds while youngsters BJ Andrade, RV Berjay, and SJ Belangel chipped in 13, 12, and 10 markers, respectively. The Green Lancers didn’t stop battling until the final buzzer, but just didn’t have enough firepower to go toe-to-toe with Ateneo which built up a lead of as much as 33. That was no more evident than in the disparity of bench points which the blue and white dominated, 38-8. The 24-point rout punctuates what has been a in impressive week for the Blue Eagles in the nationwide tourney. Dropping the first game in the best-of-three semifinals series against San Beda University, they won back-to-back to move on to the Finals. There, Ateneo left no doubt that it rules collegiate basketball. This is their first title in the PCCL in nine years and their fourth overall. Rey Suerte showed the way for UV with 26 points, six rebounds, three steals, and two assists. BOX SCORES ATENEO 95 – Go 15, Andrade 13, Ravena 12, Berjay 12, Belangel 10, Wong 9, Kouame 8, Mamuyac 7, Tio 3, Credo 2,  Ma. Nieto 2, Mi. Nieto 2.

Ateneo, San Beda banner record 20-team PBA D-League in 2019

Twenty teams will lock horns once the 2019 PBA D-League season rolls on February 14 at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig. Go for Gold-CSB, the champions of the past 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup, will be back in the fold as it tries to extend its dynasty against a stacked field, which includes UAAP champion Ateneo, NCAA king San Beda, and NAASCU titlist St. Clare. Fifteen school-based teams will be joining the tilt as the record number of teams led the league to scrap the two-conference format and push through with the lone season staging. League pioneer Centro Escolar University, last season's back-to-back runner-up Che'Lu Bar & Grill, and holdovers Marinerong Pilipino, Batangas-EAC, and AMA Online Education will all be part of this season's competitions, as well as returnees Perpetual and Wangs Basketball. UAAP teams FEU, UST, and NU, together with NCAA contenders Letran and San Sebastian are all raring to test their mantle in the developmental ranks. Newcomers Diliman College, Phoenix-Enderun, Trinity College, and McDavid will also make their debuts this season to complete the field.

Makati cruises to eighth win in a row in MPBL

Makati kept its streak going and notched its eighth straight win in its last elimination game of the year in the 2018 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Datu Cup at the Batangas City Coliseum last Wednesday.   The Super Crunch outplayed the Pasay Voyagers, 67-59, to fortify their chances of moving up further in this tournament. After picking up their 14th win in 18 games, the Super Crunch are now within striking distance of the third-seed San Juan Knights in the northern division. But host team Batangas City was not as successful in extending its winning run, this after Manila played the spoiler’s role.     The Stars turned to Chris Bitoon to lead them in a thrilling 80-79 win over the Athletics that stopped the host team’s seven-game win run.   Bitoon finished with 13 points, including the go-ahead layup that propelled Manilato its 15th win in 18 games, just a game behind tournament leader Bataan Risers.   The loss was the seventh in 18 games for the Athletics.     Bitoon, the spitfire guard, delivered the crucial basket in the last five seconds of the game as his getaway layup proved to be the difference..   The Athletics had one last chance of salvaging a win, but Jhaymo Eguilos missed a jumper, allowing the Stars to snatch their third straight since losing to San Juan......»»

2018 PBA Draft Baller Breakdown: Bong Quinto

Ever since he was a young boy who grew up playing 3-on-3 streetball in Barangay Pasong Tamo, Quezon City, Kierjohn “Bong” Quinto dreamed about making it to the PBA. Tomorrow, his lifelong dream will finally be realized. The only question is, which team will draft the NCAA’s best small forward? STRENGTHS At 6’1”, Quinto was a match up problem for any team that faced the Letran Knights. Because of his strength, there was nobody in the NCAA who could handle him in the post. Quinto would attack the defense any way he wanted. If the defender was smaller, he would usually back him down and shoot a fadeaway. If the defender was bigger, he would face-up and make a powerful move towards the basket. Either way, it was easy money for Quinto. In his fifth and final season with the Knights, Quinto ranked 8th in scoring averaging 15.1 points a contest. He also averaged 8.1 rebounds and 6.5 assists, solid all-around numbers that earned him a spot in the Mythical Five. Prior to participating in Season 94, Quinto helped the Batangas City Athletics win the inaugural MPBL Championship, proof that he is experienced enough and ready for the physicality of the big boys in the PBA. WEAKNESSES At 6’1”, Quinto might be too small to be a forward in the PBA. Right now, he is labelled as a “tweener”. So, assuming he would have to play shooting guard, there’s a lot of aspects in his game that he has to work on. The first and obvious thing would be his shooting. Quinto only took 22 three-point attempts the entire NCAA season and made seven of them. He also rarely took mid-range jumpers because he didn’t have to. His shooting is a huge question mark as of the moment. In order to be effective in the pros, Quinto will have to show everybody that he has a shot because his “bully ball” style of play will not work on every one at this level. Another thing he will have to improve on is his speed. Although Quinto has shown surprising athleticism at times especially when he would dunk the ball during fast break opportunities where he found himself uncontested, his speed does not blow you away. If he really does makes the transition to the two in the PBA, he might have to shed off some excess pounds to be able to keep up with explosive guards like Chris Newsome or Terrence Romeo.    .....»»

Lao hopes to join UP teammates Desiderio, Dario in the PBA

He may have taken the road less travelled, but Kyles Lao has no regrets with the path he took in his basketball career.   Opting to forego his final playing year in the UAAP, the former Xavier standout missed on a chance to be a part of the UP Fighting Maroons, which reached the Finals of the recently-concluded Season 81 cage wars and finished runner-up to defending champion Ateneo.   But rather than look on what could have been, all he feels is pride with what his alma mater was able to accomplish.   "A part of me is happy and proud na UP overcame the culture of losing and became a finalist this season," Lao said as the Fighting Maroons reached the championship round for the first time since 1986.   It doesn't mean that Lao drew the short end of the stick, too.   The UAAP Season 76 Rookie of the Year have made the most of his time away from Diliman, suiting up for AMA Online Education in the PBA D-League and Manila Stars in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL), and now, will be making the biggest gamble of his career as he enters the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft.   "Instead of going back to UP, I've joined a lot of commercial leagues, MPBL and D-League which I've learned a lot from. My teammates and coaches imparted a lot of knowledge on me, on how I prepare myself and how I approach the game," said Lao at the weekly Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum presented by San Miguel Corporation, Tapa King, and the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) at Tapa King-Cubao on Tuesday.   "I'm not saying na hindi ko siya makukuha sa UP, but it's not a bad path that I took. I have no regrets because this is where I am now," he said.   Lao is one of the 48 hopefuls who are set to infuse new blood to the 44-year-old professional league through the annual rookie draft proceedings, set on Sunday at Robinson's Midtown in Ermita, Manila.   Coming in confident on what he feels is "the best shape of his career," Lao also wouldn't mind linking it up with former UP brethrens in Paul Desiderio and Diego Dario, both of whom are also making the leap to the pros, wherever that team may be.   "Syempre, I would be happy. Being with familiar faces isn't bad in any case,” said Lao.   “I know how Paul and Diego play and within the system of any coach, I know I can jell with them easily. To be given the chance, it will be reminiscent of our UP Maroon days kung bibigyan kami ng pagkakataon," Lao added.  .....»»

Mets deGrom gets Cy with record-low wins; Snell takes AL

By Jake Seiner, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — After a season marred by narrow defeats, Jacob deGrom became a runaway winner. The New York Mets ace easily won the National League Cy Young Award on Wednesday night, a reward for a historically fruitless season in Flushing. The right-hander had just 10 victories, the fewest ever by a Cy Young-winning starter. The AL prize also reflected a change in voters’ values, with Blake Snell of the Tampa Bay Rays narrowly beating out past winners Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber for his first Cy Young. Snell pitched just 180 2/3 innings, fewest ever by a Cy Young-winning starter. Over full seasons, Snell is the second starter to win the award with fewer than 200 innings after Clayton Kershaw logged 198 1/3 in 2014. “I definitely think the game has changed in that aspect,” deGrom said. “I feel like it’s just turning more into quality of work and what did you accomplish in those innings,” Snell said. “I think that’s just the way it’s going.” DeGrom easily beat out Washington’s Max Scherzer, who was seeking a third straight Cy Young and fourth overall. DeGrom got 29 first-place votes and 207 points from members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Scherzer had the other first-place vote. In his first season after chopping off his distinctive long hair, deGrom cut down hitters from start to finish despite little help from teammates. He had a 1.70 ERA, the lowest in the NL since Zack Greinke’s 1.66 mark in 2015. Yet the 30-year-old right-hander went 10-9, eclipsing the low bar among starters of 13 victories set by the Dodgers’ Fernando Valenzuela in 1981 and matched by Seattle’s Felix Hernandez in 2010. DeGrom allowed three runs or fewer in 29 consecutive starts to close the season, breaking Leslie “King” Cole’s 108-year-old record of 26 such outings. Yet the Mets were 11-18 in those games and 14-18 overall with deGrom on the mound. “My thought process was, ‘Hey, take the ball every fifth day and continue to try to put this team in position to win and control what you can control,’” deGrom said. Hernandez’s Cy Young victory signaled a major shift from voters, who once prioritized pitcher wins. The push toward advanced analytics made deGrom’s candidacy possible, and by September there was little debate deGrom was worthy, even as the Mets regularly wasted his dominance. “This was one of my goals,” deGrom said. “The team didn’t end up where we wanted to be this past season, but you kind of set personal goals, and I think being able to accomplish something that has been a dream of yours is just something special. To be a Cy Young Award winner, you’re in great company, and it truly is an honor.” Perhaps no pitcher had ever been such a hard-luck loser. New York averaged 3.5 runs in games started by deGrom, second only to Cole Hamels for worst support in the majors among qualified pitchers. During one stretch late in the season, the Mets totaled 10 runs over seven of deGrom’s outings, and four of those were driven in by the pitcher himself. DeGrom nearly produced more wins above replacement than actual wins — an unfortunate sabermetric feat that has only been accomplished once, when the Philadelphia Athletics’ Eddie Smith went 4-17 with 4.1 WAR in 1937. Baseball-Reference calculated deGrom for 9.6 WAR. The 2014 NL Rookie of the Year, he became the seventh rookie winner voted a Cy Young, joining fellow Mets Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden. R.A. Dickey was the only other Met to win a Cy Young. The Mets unveiled a deGrom bobblehead featuring the Cy Young Award shortly after deGrom was crowned. They will give away 25,000 prior to a home game April 7 against Scherzer’s Nationals. Snell got 17 first-place votes and 169 points to 13 first-place votes and 154 points for Verlander. Kluber had 71 points, followed by Boston’s Chris Sale and Houston’s Gerrit Cole. Snell had a 1.89 ERA, third best in the AL since the DH was introduced, trailing only Ron Guidry (1.74) in 1978 and Pedro Martinez (1.74) in 2000. The 25-year-old pitched had 33 1/3 fewer innings than Verlander, but his dominance was enough to sway the electorate. The lefty nicknamed Snellzilla wreaked havoc against the AL’s top lineups. He was 3-0 with a 1.08 ERA in four starts against the World Series champion Red Sox, and 2-0 in two starts each against the Astros and Indians. The Yankees roughed Snell up twice, but he got threw five scoreless innings in a victory Aug. 16. That came during a late-season run of nine consecutive wins for Snell, including a victory against every team in the AL East. He also made five starts against former Cy Young winners and went 3-0 with an 0.59 ERA. Snell was the first player 25-or-younger to win 21 games since Barry Zito in 2002. He was highly regarded as a minor leaguer for his electric arsenal, but subpar control led to struggles during his first two major league seasons. He was even demoted to Triple-A for a month in 2017. It all came together this year. Snell was a stalwart for a most unusual pitching staff, taking the ball every fifth day while manager Kevin Cash successfully experimented with reliever “openers” to start games in between. Snell led the Rays with 31 starts, and no other traditional starter had more than 17. After longtime franchise ace Chris Archer was traded to the Pirates on July 31, Snell went 9-0 with a 1.17 ERA. “I felt with the opener, I had a bigger role on the team,” Snell said. Snell is the second Rays pitcher to win the award, following David Price in 2012. Scherzer went 18-7 with a 2.53 ERA and led the majors with 220 2/3 innings and 300 strikeouts. He was attempting to become the first player since Randy Johnson to win three consecutive Cy Youngs. He got the first-place vote of John Maffei of the San Diego Union-Tribune, 29 seconds and 123 points. Aaron Nola of the Philadelphia Phillies was third with 86 points, followed by Colorado’s Kyle Freeland and Arizona’s Patrick Corbin. Verlander led the AL with 290 strikeouts while going 16-9 with a 2.52 ERA for AL West champion Houston. This is his third second-place finish since winning the Cy Young and MVP in 2011 with Detroit. Kluber was attempting to win his second straight Cy Young and third overall. He went 20-7 with a 2.89 ERA for AL Central champion Cleveland and led the AL with 215 innings......»»
