UAAP: Winning Maroons join rainy UP Lantern Parade

The rain did not bother the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball runners-up as the Fighting Maroons participated in the annual Lantern Parade Friday at the University of the Philippines in Diliman. Seven members of the history-making team namely UAAP Season 81 MVP Bright Akhuetie, Jun Manzo, Javi Gomez de Liano, Janjan Jaboneta, Gelo Vito, Diego Dario, and Will Gozum rode a truck that slowly went around the campus' massive academic oval. During the ride, they took selfies with fans along the road. Happening now: #UAAPSeason81 silver medalists UP MBT participating in the annual Lantern Parade. Players are riding a truck as they take selfies with fans around the academic oval. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/cIQ5wXJ3Fr — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 14, 2018 UP MBT's turn to be introduced in the Quezon Hall. Several fans still showed up to witness the team despite the rainy weather. @abscbnsports pic.twitter.com/VuaNR1MjSl — Danine Cruz (@the9cruz) December 14, 2018 It was drizzling the whole afternoon but the players and fans still continued the parade. The crowd chanted 'Atin 'To!' and 'UP Fight' while the drummers kept hitting their signature beats just a few vehicles away from the basketball team's truck. The participation of the team in the yearly tradition of the community is in celebration of the men's basketball program ending a 32-year medal drought in men's basketball. "Sobrang sarap ng feeling. At least for one last time lalo na ngayong Pasko na nakita namin yung buong community, na kahit umuulan andito pa rin para sa amin, todo suporta pa rin. We are really blessed as a team and as individuals to have this opportunity and probably this is the best UP experience for me if you're gonna ask me," said graduating player Gelo Vito. "It's really a blessing, may mga naririnig pa nga ako na may dumayo pa from UP Baguio to be here," added Vito. Akhuetie was thrilled to see the warm reception from UP supporters. "It's awesome. I can't wait to make these guys proud by getting the championship. Look at the hearts these people are pouring out. There is nothing you can do for them that can be too much. Despite the weather, the rain and all, they still showed up." However, Akhuetie expressed that despite the love they have been getting from the community, a bridesmaid finish is not enough. "I just couldn't get it in my head that 'Oh okay, for them to be this happy, I've done enough' I still feel we have to do more so I like it, it's okay but I'm not carried away by it," he said. Aside from the basketball team, the men's track and feld team, which ended a 36-year title drought, also had their own truck to celebrate the achievement. Aside from the UP MBT, the track and field team also has a truck of their own in the Lantern Parade.

Proven ‘winner’ Alex Mallari brings leadership to table at Phoenix

MANILA, Philippines---It cannot be denied that Alex Mallari has a wealth of experience in his relatively young PBA career. Mallari was drafted third overall pick in the 2012 PBA Draft by Petron but was not able to complete a full season with the Blaze Boosters and he was dealt to sister team San Mig Coffee. But it was in Magnolia that Mallari blossomed into one of the finest role players as an off guard leading to four straight titles including the Grand Slam. And it's this quality that got Phoenix head coach Louie Alas's attentionwhen the Fuel Masters traded for Mallari. "Mallari's a veteran and he's a winner," said Alas Thursday at Gatorade Hoops Center during the PBA D...Keep on reading: Proven ‘winner’ Alex Mallari brings leadership to table at Phoenix.....»»

PBA Draft: Perez or Parks Jr. for 1st pick? Legends debate

Lyceum star CJ Perez and Alab Pilipinas captain Bobby Ray Parks Jr. are the concensus top-two picks for the upcoming 2018 PBA Draft this Sunday. What's unsure, however, is who Columbian Dyip, the owner of this year's top pick, should actually draft. PBA legends Gary David and Dondon Hontiveros were on hand at The Score's studio along with LA Tenorio and Beau Belga last Thursday to break down the exciting rivalry of sorts between Perez and Parks that's been adding spice to the PBA Draft. SPORTS SQUAD RELOADED! @dhonts7, Gary David, @LA_Tenorio, Beau Belaga and @micohalili discuss the possible top picks of the 2018 rookie draft! Who ya got? pic.twitter.com/56urqgJVFD — The Score (@TheScorePH) December 13, 2018 The question: Who should go first, and why? Hontiveros, who now plays for Alab Pilipinas in the ABL, obviously had Parks Jr. as this year's top pick.  The Cebuano hotshot was all praise for Parks Jr. and his ability to take charge and lead the team, which has already been proven with Alab's championship run last season.  David, Tenorio, and Belga, however, are all for CJ being the top pick. They all cited Perez's all-around game, his defense, and his ability to lead by example after two seasons with Lyceum.  What sets his apart, says Tenorio, was his willingness to learn, which is as important as any trait, said the Ginebra guard.

Harden s 50-point triple-double leads Rockets over Lakers

By Kristie Rieken, Associated Press HOUSTON (AP) — James Harden had 50 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, scoring 11 points during a big fourth-quarter run to lead the Houston Rockets to a 126-111 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Harden grabbed his 10th rebound with less than 90 seconds left to give him his second triple-double this season and the 37th of his career. LeBron James finished with 29 points for the Lakers, who had won their previous two games. Houston's lead was three after Kyle Kuzma's soaring dunk, but Harden was fouled on a three-pointer and made all three free throws to make it 112-106. Harden then made three-pointers on consecutive possessions to push the lead to 12 and cause Lakers coach Luke Walton to call a timeout. James was in Harden's face on the second one and Harden fell to the court as the ball rolled around the rim for a couple of seconds before dropping in. James added a dunk before Clint Capela and Harden made consecutive baskets to compete the 13-2 run and make it 122-108 to put the game out of reach. It was the first meeting between these teams since Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo got into a fight on Oct. 20 (Oct. 21, PHL time) that led to suspensions for both players and Brandon Ingram. There wasn't an altercation this time around in a game where Rondo sat out as he recovers from surgery to repair a broken right hand. But there was a spate of technical fouls late in the third quarter that led to the ejection of Nene. The Lakers scored six straight points, highlighted by a dunk from James, to get within 74-72 midway through the third quarter. Los Angeles ran off six in a row later in the period to tie it up before Harden ended the run with a jump shot. Nene then received a foul after being knocked to the ground trying to defend Kuzma as he drove to the lane. He yelled at officials and received a technical foul. Kuzma made his free throws but Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed the technical shot. Nene made a hook shot before fouling Kuzma again on the next possession. He continued to scream at officials and was hit with a second technical foul and was ejected. Harden attempted to calm him down, but Nene continued to be agitated until he was escorted to the locker room. Kuzma made all three foul shots and added a three-pointer with Harden in his face after a triple by Harden to leave the Lakers up 88-87 with 9.9 seconds left in the quarter. Kuzma was called for a foul after that and Walton got a technical for arguing about that call. Harden made the technical shot and Paul added two more free throws to leave Houston up 90-88 after three. TIP-INS Lakers: Kuzma received a technical foul in the first quarter for arguing about a foul call. ... Brandon Ingram missed his fourth straight game with a sprained left ankle. ... Kuzma had 24 points to give him 20 or more points in a career-best six straight games. Rockets: Brandon Knight played in his first game since Feb. 15, 2017, after recovering from surgery to repair a torn left anterior cruciate ligament. He came in with about four minutes left in the first quarter and played about four minutes with one assist and one rebound. ... James Ennis sat out with a strained right hamstring. UP NEXT Lakers: Visit Charlotte on Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time). Rockets: Visit Memphis on Saturday night  (Sunday, PHL time)......»»

By Carlos Rodriguez, Associated Press MEXICO CITY (AP) — Nikola Vucevic scored 26 points, including a tie-breaking jumper with 28 seconds remaining, and the Orlando Magic snapped a three-game losing streak with a 97-91 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time) in their first of two games in Mexico. Vucevic shot 11-for-21 from the field and grabbed 10 rebounds, while D.J. Augustin added 15 points for the Magic. Zach LaVine scored 23 points but the Bulls (6-23) lost for the 10th time in their last 11 games and remained with the worst record in the Eastern Conference. After Lauri Markkanen tied it at 91 with 1:06 left to play, Vucevic nailed a 15-foot jumper to put the Magic ahead and Augustin iced the game with four free throws in the final seconds. The game was the NBA's 27th in Mexico, and Orlando will play Utah on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time). Only the United States and Canada have hosted more.
