PBA: Arwind Santos, Vic Manuel just waiting for Gilas call

ANTIPOLO, RIZAL -- Have no fear, because Arwind and Vic are here? The two opponents may be at war now, but their hearts have agreed on one thing: suiting up for Gilas Pilipinas.  Commissioner Cup semis opponents Arwind Santos and Vic Manuel have put their names into the proverbial hat of possible Gilas replacements during the second window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifers as 10 different players have been suspended by the world's basketball governing body for a different number of games. The San Miguel forward, who had last represented the Philippines with Powerade Team Pilipinas back in 2009, is very open to the possbility of suiting up again for flag and country. He also relished at the possibility of playing with San Miguel teammates June Mar Fajardo, a current Gilas pool member, and Marcio Lassiter, a member of the first batch of Gilas players. "Okay lang naman ako. Wala namang problema. Lalo na't kasama ko sina Marcio, sina June Mar. Okay sa akin. At saka para sa ano natin. Mga nawala natin. Siyempre, sino pa maglalaro sa atin? Kung kailangan, sige. Nandoon lang naman ako," the 37-year old Santos said.  Meanwhile, for Vic Manuel, the conference's revelation, having 'Pilipinas' emblazoned across his jersey has always been a dream for him much like any basketball player, and with it, the probablity of making it has increased as Alaska head honcho Dickie Bachmann has provided his blessings for him to join the squad if called upon. "Kung mabibigyan ng chance, bakit hindi? Siyempre malaking bagay yon. Siyempre ako rin dream ko rin makapaglaro para sa bansa. Siyempre, ayun, gusto ko rin makatulong sa kanila."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»

PBA: Lalaban tayo hanggang sa huli -- Aces coach Compton

ANTIPOLO -- Down 0-2 in a best-of-five semifinals series against the best and most star-studded team in the league, Alaska could’ve waived the white flag. But the Aces aren’t going down without a fight. Faced against overwhelming odds, Alaska stood its ground and made giant San Miguel Beer know that if it wants to advance into the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals the Beermen must go through them first. Even with their import Diamon Simpson playing hurt, the Aces blew out San Miguel, 125-104, to deny the Beermen a series sweep and live to fight another day Friday at the Ynares Sports Center here. “I thought everybody contributed at a time where, obviously, we’re still down, at a time we’re very down,” said Alaska coach Alex Compton, whose bench produced 71 points. “To tell you what guys, I love my guys. You heard me say it before I love my guys they don’t give up.” “We’re down 2-0 against the best team in the league, there’s every possibility to give up but they didn’t,” he added. The Aces dropped the series’ first two games including a painful Game 2 loss where Alaska squandered a 16-point lead. Ahead by nine points in at the half in Game 3, Alaska this time kept its hold of the lead and even extended it to 17 heading into the payoff period for a comfortable cushion. “Yun ang hiningi ko sa kanila, ‘lalaban tayo hanggang sa huli’. Lumaban sila,” said Compton. “You know we have to play great to beat San Miguel, I thought we played great tonight.” The mentor also praised his wards for stepping up as Simpson played with a sprained ankle he sustained in Game 2.     “I’m really proud of the guys when I had to sub him out when he looked like he was really hurt in the second quarter,” Compton said. “They were able to maintain and even at point extend our lead a little bit.” Vic Manuel delivered 24 points while Simpson still managed to score 21 markers and grab 13 boards. JV Casio also contributed with 15 markers while Simon Enciso flirted with a double-double with 10 points and eight assists in a time Alaska need all the help it could get. “It just feels like it was one of our days. Alam naman naming na doon sa kabila hindi biro ang bigat ng kalaban but we got one and we needed to get one,” said Compton. Now Alaska has a chance to get back in the series and take an equalizer on Sunday in Game 4.         ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles      .....»»

PBA: We can t get too excited -- Simpson on Aces win

Alaska finally woke up from a slump in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup best-of-five semifinals series Friday with a rout of defending champion San Miguel Beer. With their bench producing 71 points led by Vic Manuel and import Diamon Simpson providing his usual numbers despite playing with a sprained ankle, the Aces crushed the Beermen, 125-104, at the Ynares Sports Center here.     But there’s still much work to be done for Alaska to end a two-year tournament championship stint drought. The Aces still trail SMB, 1-2, in the series. “That was a good win but we can't get too excited,” said Simpson, who played through pain to register 21 points and 13 rebounds. Manuel led Alaska’s bench scoring with 24 points, Simon Enciso came off the bench to add 10 points and eight assists while Nonoy Baclao and Chris Exciminiano had nine markers each to highlight the Aces total team effort.  “I thought the whole team played well, not just the bench, the starters, I think everybody contributed which helped us win,” Simpson said. “So, congratulations to our team. We just gotta keep going.” The win gave Alaska the much-needed morale boost for an underdog playing against a deep and talented SMB squad, which came into the game looking for a sweep and a record 40th Finals appearance. But the Aces spoiled the Beermen’s party.  “I think they kinda look at it that way at first. But we just persevered, and keep going, and have faith that we can compete with them, and not worried about wins or losses but attitude and effort,” said Simpson. Game 4 is on Sunday at the Big Dome. And Alaska will be ready to force a decider and ultimately get a shot at its 31st PBA Finals stint. “We gotta come back and play them again Sunday and try to play with our heart again and see if that's enough,” Simpson said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

PBA: San Miguel players sent home early to prepare for Game 4

ANTIPOLO, RIZAL -- The San Miguel Beermen simply lost the will to win in Game 3 of the best-of-five Commissioner's Cup. Pair that with the Alaska Aces' infinite source of energy, it resulted to a Game 4 on Sunday at the Big Dome. Beermen head coach Leo Austria seems to agree with the premise, as he sent home his players ten minutes after the final buzzer to aid them in their recovery for Sunday's big game, which could spell either another conquest of the Aces or a winner-take-all Game 5. Austria knew it was do-or-die for Alaska this time around, but their opponents' energy, motivated by their desire to extend the series, proved to be the difference Friday evening. "In terms of energy, wala talaga kaming energy kanina. It's hard to win all games eh. Considering na Alaska ang kalaban namin, alam namin na this third game na, their backs are against the wall. Ibibigay nila ang lahat ng makakaya nila, and it happens. But on our part, we did not play our game. We played their game. Outhustled kami, outplayed," the multi-titled coach explained. The coach credited Alaska's heart at the Ynares Sports Center, pointing out the most glaring differences in the game: second chance-points and field goal attempts. Alaska scored 33 second-chance points to SMB's 16, while the Aces attempted 103 field goals to the Beermen's 82. "It is a wake-up call for us, because it is an opportunity na hindi namin put into waste. Sabi ko sa kanila, hindi na kailangan ng another conference to recover and to recharge and to regroup, so we still are in a position na may advantage." What also was noticeable in the game was the benching of Renaldo Balkman, who rode the pine for the last eight minutes of the game. The coach explained that he wanted to prevent any sort of injury to the former New York Knick, as his team failed to respond to the Aces' vicious offensive and defensive attack. "He's playing around 42 minutes per game and ngayon lang siya bumaba ng kaunti, which is 37. So I think he needs rest that time dahil for you to come back dahil it requires a lot of energy to pressure, hustle, to rebound, lahat gagawin mo and we're trying to avoid na something might happen, baka mamaya kakapwersa niya, ma-injure pa siya or ganyan." "So I think that's the right thing to do for some of the players to taste some precious playing time for them." The tactician also admitted that overconfidence had crept to their minds, but they were given a rude awakening by their second-seeded opponents by way of an emphatic 21-point victory. Could it be the Aces' last gasp? Austria hopes so, pointing out the team's virtual twice-to-beat advantage for the rest of the series. "We will try to watch what happened tonight and I hope na we come out next game na talagang full of energy. I think na energy-wise, wala talaga kaming energy kanina. I don't know kung nakatulong ba yung 3 days off prior to this game." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary.  .....»»

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Elizabeth Cambage had 35 points and 17 rebounds, breaking the WNBA's two-game scoring record, and the Dallas Wings beat the Washington Mystics 90-81 on Thursday night. Coming off a historic 53-point performance Tuesday, Cambage broke Minnesota star Maya Moore's record two-game total of 80 points set in 2014. Cambage also became the first player with back-to-back 30-point, 10-rebound games since Moore in 2014. Kayla Thornton added 15 points, and Glory Johnson had 13 for Dallas (14-9). Dallas had three players score in double digits in the first half. Cambage had 17 points and nine rebounds, and Thornton and Johnson each scored 10.

NCAA: Escamis, Red Robins exact revenge on Jr. Blazers

STANDINGS PERPETUAL 2-0 ARELLANO 1-0 LPU 2-1 JRU 1-1 LSGH 1-1 MAPUA 1-1 SAN SEBASTIAN 1-1 LETRAN 0-1 SAN BEDA 0-1 EAC 0-2 This early in the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament, the finalists from a year ago have faced off. It was the same close contest for Mapua High School and College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills, but the result was definitely different. Clint Escamis did the heavy lifting while Dan Arches and Jonnel Policarpio provided the backup as the Red Robins avenged their Finals loss to the Junior Blazers with a convincing 95-81 victory on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Escamis, who fouled out in his first game in the season, bounced back big-time with 28 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. “Ginawa lang talaga namin yung gameplan namin. Nagbunga naman yung preparations namin so credit talaga sa mga bata,” head coach Randy Alcantara said post-game. The graduating guard also stepped up when it mattered most, dropping 10 of his output in the final frame. It was Escamis’ highlight layup and triple that capped off a massive 32-11 tidal wave bridging the third and fourth quarters that broke open a tied tally of 59 all and built up a 91-70 advantage in favor of Mapua. Arches and Policarpio did their part during that run and the former finished with 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists while the latter ended with 15 markers and four boards to help the Red Robins get into the win column after experiencing an upset to start the season. Last year, CSB-LSGH bested Mapua in three games to capture its first-ever championship. Now, the Red Robins are nothing but determined to reclaim the crown they were wearing before last season. “Siyempre, may gigil, pero dapat composed. Siyempre, ‘di kami papayag na 0-2 kami,” Alcantara said. For the defending champions, Joshua David fronted the effort with 19 points and eight rebounds while Joel Cagulangan had 14 markers, seven assists, and six boards. They suffer their first setback after a tournament-opening win. Meanwhile, Lyceum of the Philippines University is now streaking after John Barba lifted them over Jose Rizal University, 88-87. Barba dropped 30 points, including the basket and bonus in the dying seconds that proved to be the difference for the Junior Pirates. He also had eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals in the Junior Pirates’ second straight win in three games. On the other hand, the Light Bombers lost for the first time in two games despite a career-best effort from John Amores who scored 32 points.

Reports: Mavericks reach deal with Ferrell, close with Dirk

NBA.com staff report The Dallas Mavericks are making sure one of their young, talented players stays in the fold and are working to keep their franchise icon from going anywhere, too. According to ESPN's Tim MacMahon and Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, the Mavs have an agreement in place with guard Yogi Ferrell on a two-year contract. In addition, Mavs all-time leading scorer Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs are making plans to finalize a one-year deal with the former Finals MVP, Charania writes. Last week, the Mavs rescinded Ferrell's qualifying offer, which made him an unrestricted free agent. However, that move was just a formality, MacMahon writes, as the sides were in the final stages of working out the new deal (which costs Dallas slightly less in annual salary). Here's more from Charania on the deal Ferrell and the Mavs reached: Free agent guard Yogi Ferrell has agreed to a two-year, $5.3 million deal to return to the Dallas Mavericks, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Ferrell returned to the Mavericks with the promise of being the backup shooting guard next season, league sources said. The second season of his deal includes a trigger date on July 7, league sources said. Ferrell, 25, earns a two-year contract after spending his first two NBA seasons with the Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets. He joined the Mavericks on a 10-day contract in January 2017, one month after the Nets waived him. Ferrell was an instant success, and had a performance of 32 points and nine 3-pointers against the Portland Trail Blazers on Feb. 3, 2017, leading to a two-year deal. Last season, Ferrell averaged 10.2 points, three assists and 2.5 rebounds per game as he started 21 of 82 games played for Dallas. Per both ESPN and Yahoo Sports, the Mavs are expected to use the remaining salary cap room they have to give Nowitzki a contract. Here's more from Charania on that deal: In what could be Dirk Nowitzki’s final NBA season, the future Hall of Famer and the Dallas Mavericks plan to finalize a one-year, $5 million deal, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Nowitzki and the Mavericks are not in a rush to sign the contract, but Nowitzki remains a Maverick for life. The Mavericks and guard Yogi Ferrell agreed to a two-year, $5.3 million deal on Thursday, leaving the team with $5 million in salary cap space to re-sign Nowitzki. In late June, Nowitzki and the Mavs mutually opted out of his contract for next season to give Dallas more room to make moves in free agency. The Mavs made a sizable splash in free agency this summer as they added former All-Star center DeAndre Jordan. Nowitzki, who has played his entire NBA career with Dallas, became the first international member of the NBA's 30,000-point club in 2017. He is the team's all-time leader in points scored, games played, rebounds, blocks, field goals made and attempted, free throws made and attempted and 3-pointers made and attempted. The Mavericks haven't won a playoff series since taking the title almost seven years ago, cycling through dozens of roster moves to try to give Nowitzki another shot at a title. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report......»»
