Blue Eagles flying to Greece, Singapore, Australia for UAAP 82 preps

With the 2019 PBA D-League championship all wrapped up and headed to Katipunan, Ateneo de Manila University can now set its sights on its title defense for the upcoming UAAP 82.  For that, the Blue Eagles will finally get to leave their nest and get themselves some overseas training. "We're leaving next week and we'll have a training camp in Greece. That'll be pretty brutal to be honest," head coach Tab Baldwin told reporters not even half an hour after they hoisted their trophy in the developmental league, Tuesday at Ynares Center in Pasig.  He then continued, "Then we'll go to Singapore and play against the Singaproe national team before heading down to Australia. We have a few games in Perth and also in Melbourne."  This is the second year in a row that Ateneo will be flying to Greece in preparation for its title defense. Obviously, the last time they did so worked wonders as they won back-to-back championships.  More than that, though, it's the bond between his boys that coach Tab wants to see get better. As he put it, "It's a great experience, I think, for the boys to understand the difficulties that long tours represent. They got to be away from home and get to bond together as a team."  He then continued, "That's where we learn to help each other through everything that we face. And you know, that's a lot when you go on tour."  Along with that, the overseas training will also be the ideal time for the Blue Eagles' coaching staff to see who are more than capable to fill out the rest of their roster – as two spots were vacated by graduated Anton Asistio and Aaron Black who is now starring in the MPBL and two more may be left open by Raffy Verano and Jolo Mendoza who are both dealing with academic deficiencies.  With that in mind, the two-time collegiate champion coach mentioned former NCAA Jrs. MVP Troy Mallillin, former UAAP Jrs. Champion Jason Credo, and Filipino-Kiwi forward Patrick Maagdenberg as Team B players who will be going along to Greece, Singapore, and Australia.  Coach Tab also said that new recruits Dwight and Eli Ramos will also be joining them there. Dwight had been a 23 for 23 Gilas Pilipinas cadet, but will still have to undergo one year of residency while Eli, who most recently opened eyes with FilAm Sport USA in the 2019 NBTC, will be good to go right away.  Still, no roster spot is assured as Ateneo gets down and dirty in preparation for another title defense. "We've had to expand the pool a little bit so we'll take those guys overseas. There, we'll let them fight it out," their brilliant tactician said.  ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

PVL: Cool Smashers seek win no. 8; Lady Troopers try to secure semis spot

Defending champion Creamline eyes to keep its hot streak going as it takes on PacificTown Army on Wednesday in the penultimate elimination round playdate of the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Reinforced Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The semifinals-bound Cool Smashers are riding the crest of their seven-game winning romp including a 25-18, 21-25, 25-19, 26-24, victory over first round tormentor PetroGazz on Saturday. Creamline marches back into action at 3:00 p.m. with hopes of taking a slice of the lead with the Angels (8-1 win-loss record). The match will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream. Imports Kuttika Kaewpin of Thailand and Venezuelan Ale Blanco, who showed the way for the Cool Smashers in their rousing win over the erstwhile unbeaten PetroGazz, will again be at the helm of Creamline’s charge together with locals Alyssa Valdez, setter Jia Morado, Michele Gumabao and Risa Sato. Meanwhile, the Lady Troopers try to seal the third Final Four seat to join Creamline and PetroGazz. PacificTown Army holds a 4-4 slate and still in a precarious position in the race for the last two Final Four seats with BanKo (3-5) and Motolite (3-6) still in the thick of the battle. The Lady Troopers are coming off a 27-29, 20-25, 14-25, loss to the Angels last Sunday in Binan, Laguna. PacificTown Army will pin its hopes on Ukrainian Lena Lymareva-Flink, American Jenelle Jordan, Jovelyn Gonzaga, Jem Gutierrez, Royse Tubino and setter Alina Bicar.     ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

MVP a pleasant surprise, but Isaac Go s eyes still on the championship prize

Isaac Go has been recognized as the MVP of the 2019 PBA D-League. The Ateneo de Manila University stalwart was adjudged the tournament's top individual player among a fine field that also included teammate Thirdy Ravena as well as the Valencia-San Sebastian awesome twosome of Allyn Bulanadi and RK Ilagan. Go's averages weren't eye-popping by themselves, but his presence was, without a doubt, key to the Cignal-Ateneo's flight to the Finals where they now stand one win away from the championship. Still, the 22-year-old was the first to acknowledge that, with his per game counts of 9.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists, he did not expect the MVP at all. "When they were announcing the nominees (for MVP), I didn’t really expect to be called. Then I got called and I was like, okay," he shared. He then continued, "And then, boom! I was even more surprised they called me again as the winner." Make no mistake about it, though, Go is nothing but thankful. "I think it's nice to have and it was a nice surprise to have this. As you saw, I was shocked that I got it," he said. At the same time, however, the 6-foot-8 big man made it clear that being the top individual player never mattered for him - or for all the Blue Eagles, for that matter. As he put it, "I feel blessed, but this is just one step towards the goal. It was never my goal to win this." He then continued, "My goal was always to win the championship, improve as a player, and always put my best foot forward. This is just a bonus." That is exactly why Go reminded everybody that he and his teammates still have their sights set on wrapping up the championship in Game 4 of the best-of-five series on Tuesday. "I will enjoy this, but then again, we have another game. We will still be focused for that," he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
