PBA: Fonacier out indefinitely with a collapsed lung

NLEX's woes continue. Kiefer Ravena and Kevin Alas are out for the season for different reasons and now, the Road Warriors are set to miss Larry Fonacier for the rest of the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup. In a report by Rappler, Fonacier is confined in the hospital for a fractured rib and a collapsed lung. The veteran guard sustained the injury after getting hit mid-air by Ginebra's Jervy Cruz in an NLEX loss last June 9 in Legazpi City Albay. Head coach Yeng Guiao confirmed the development and Larry is not dealing with anything serious. His recovery however, will require a significant amount of time, forcing him to miss the rest of the mid-season conference. The Road Warriors are currently in 11th place with a 2-7 record.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Kiefer, Mallari make winning plays as NLEX takes 1-0 lead over Magnolia

Alex Mallari, a former Grand Slam champion with San Mig Coffee, just burned his former team. Taking a pass from Kiefer Ravena, Mallari drilled a wide-open triple in the final 14.4 seconds and NLEX dropped Magnolia, 88-87, in Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals Saturday at the Big Dome. Down one, 83-84, Ravena collapsed the Magnolia defense and then found Mallari for the booming go-ahead triple. In the ensuing possession, Paul Lee missed the answer for the Hotshots and Kiefer secured the rebound, making an additional two free throws for insurance. Lee then made up for his earlier miss, connecting on a corner triple with 4.5 seconds to go to cut the deficit to one, 87-88. Magnolia then actually forced a turnover for a chance to win but Ravena saved NLEX, making a counter steal and forcing the Hotshots to foul. JR Quinahan missed two free throws with less than a second left and the Road Warriors managed to hold on, taking a 1-0 lead in the best-of-7. "We knew coming into this game that it would be a defensive matchup so had to finetune our execution," head coach Yeng Guiao said. "So we really worked hard on our execution and at the same time, sinubukan naming humanap ng paraan para ma-control si Paul [Lee] and we actually succeeded at least partly and we won the game," he added. The first half was an ugly defensive struggle for both teams as NLEX only took a 32-27 lead at the break. However, action picked up in the third period as Mark Barroca sparked the Magnolia offense. Both teams then traded blows in the fourth, setting up the wild finish. Cyrus Baguio put up a vintage performance for NLEX, scoring a team-high 17 points, eight in the fourth quarter. Ravena and Mallari scored 16 and 14 respectively for NLEX while Raul Soyud added another 10. For the Hotshots, it was Ian Sangalang that led the way with 21 points while PJ Simon turned back the clock to finish with 20. A cause of concern for Magnolia, more than being down 0-1, is Marc Pingris as the veteran forward left the game left in the final quarter due to an apparent knee injury. Game 2 is set for Monday at the MOA Arena.     The scores: NLEX 88 - Baguio 17, Ravena 16, Mallari 14, Soyud 10, Miranda 7, Fonacier 7, Al-Hussaini 6, Alas 5, Quiñahan 4, Tiongson 2, Ighalo 0, Taulava 0, Gotladera 0. MAGNOLIA 87 - Sangalang 21, Simon 20, Barroca 9, Lee 8, Ramos 8, Reavis 6, Herndon 5, Pingris 5, Dela Rosa 5, Melton 0, Jalalon 0, Brondial 0. Quarters: 14-12, 32-27, 60-61, 88-87.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Bogus: Road construction via China-funded ‘Build Build Build’ program

MANILA, Philippines --- A Facebook post showing a road construction purportedly via the Duterte administration's China-funded "Build, Build, Build" program is a bogus.

UAAP Women s Basketball: Lady Tamaraws back in the Finals after four years, eliminate UST

After four years, the Far Eastern University is back in the UAAP Women's Basketball Finals after overcoming the hungry University of Santo Tomas, 68-66, in a thrilling step-ladder semifinals match Wednesday afternoon at the Araneta Coliseum. It was nip and tuck in the first three quarters but a Clare Castro triple with 1:50 left brought FEU ahead by five points, 47-42. It was the shot that turned the momentum around as the Tamaraws stretched the lead to 10 points. However, UST did not let go without a fight. Courtesy of Season MVP Grace Irebu's three triples and Sai Larosa's fast breaks, the Tigresses chopped the lead down to one, 59-60, with four minutes left. It was a dogfight since then but in the end, FEU held on to their 68-66 lead as they the Tigresses' Jastine Capilit failed to convert a game-tying shot in the game's final play. As the final buzzer sounded, the Tamaraws all jumped in glee as the Tigresses collapsed in despair. UST settled with another third place finish while FEU advanced to the Finals. Castro carried the Lady Tamaraws with 32 points and 15 rebounds. She was heavily credited by FEU head coach Bert Flores for their fantastic run this Season 81. "Hindi namin ine-expect na umabot kami ng Finals. Yung team kasi namin, anim ang nawala," shared Flores, "Pag wala si Clare, ang liliit namin, para kaming minions. Parang may rebounder kami, may [Junemar] Fajardo. Ang laking bagay ni Clare, pasalamat ako sa kanya." He also mentioned how Castro's presence empowers other players to perform as well. Fatima Quiapo produced 12 points and six rebounds while Nina Antiola scored nine points, four rebounds, and four assists. UST's Irebu scored 28 points, 13 rebounds, and four assists. Tantoy Ferrer added 11 points and four rebounds while Sai Larosa had 10 points, eight rebounds, and five assists. Castro credited her experience guarding Irebu in the semifinals as something she can use to sharpen her skills as she faces National University's Rhena Itesi and Jack Animam in the Finals. "Siyempre si Irebu yung katapat ko na pwera pa sa NU eh, so yung mga post-ups ko kanina, parang ano rin siya na preparation na rin siya sa NU kasi kung sa ibang team seal ako ng seal, pasa lang sa akin. Eh yun malalaki so kailangan ko gawan ng paraan para makakuha ako ng bola," Castro shared. The Lady Tamaraws will face the dynastic Lady Bulldogs for the best-of-three Finals series starting on December 1, Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena. The Scores: FEU 68 -- Castro 32, Quiapo 12, Antiola 9, Mamaril 7, Taguiam 5, Bahuyan 3, Vidal 0, Bastatas 0, Abat 0, Adriano 0, Payadon 0.

Roche (Philippines) Inc. launches immunotherapy for previously treated non-small cell lung cancer

As we observe the Global Lung Cancer Awareness Month this November, Filipinos need to be more aware of lung cancer, how it is diagnosed, and the latest treatment options available for patients. According to the latest statistics as of 2018, lung cancer remains to be the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the Philippines. Most cases of lung cancer present at an advanced stage of disease, when it is already metastatic and surgery is not an option anymore. Lung cancer can be broadly classified into two major types -- non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). NSCLC is far more prevalent accounting to up to 85% of all lung cancer cases.

PBA: Ginebra sets up Manila Clasico semis eliminating NLEX

Manila Clasico semis is set. Two-time defending champions Brgy. Ginebra made quick work of no. 8 NLEX Tuesday, taking a 111-75 win in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup quarterfinals. The top-seeded Gin Kings advance and will meet rival Magnolia in the next round. Ginebra took control early in the game, taking a double-digit lead at the break. However, the Road Warriors came out firing in the second half, cutting a 14-point deficit into just five. The Gin Kings would recover behind import Justin Brownlee, who scored 10 of his 13 points in the third to re-establish control for the barangay. Ginebra would land the knockout blow in the fourth, leading by as many as 36 points late. "I thought we did pretty much what we wanted to do throughout the game except that we came out flat in the second half and they made a nice run at us," head coach Tim Cone said. "No doubt there was some jitters there during the timeouts," he added. Ginebra pulled away behind a balanced effort led by Japeth Aguilar and Greg Slaughter who finished with 18 and 16 points respectively. Sol Mercado added 14 while Brownlee had 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists for another triple-double. For the Road Warriors, Aaron Fuller scored 25 but no one else cracked double figures.   The scores: Ginebra 111 - J. Aguilar 18, Slaughter 16, Mercado 14, Brownlee 13, Chan 12, Mariano 8, Tenorio 7, Ferrer 7, Thompson 6, Caperal 5, R. Aguilar 3, Manuel 2.

Jazz rout Davis-less Pelicans

NEW ORLEANS --- When Ricky Rubio learned he wouldn't have to worry about Anthony Davis guarding the paint for the Pelicans, the Jazz point guard figured he better look for Utah big-man Rudy Gobert at the rim whenever possible. "I was looking more to that than anything else," Rubio said, adding that when New Orleans' defense collapsed on Gobert, he was able to take advantage of that as well. Rubio had 28 points and 12 assists, Gobert had 25 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks, and Utah became the first team this season to beat New Orleans, 132-111 on Saturday night. "When Ricky plays like that, it's hard to lose," said Gobert, who had a handful of dunks set up by Rubio, several on al...Keep on reading: Jazz rout Davis-less Pelicans.....»»
