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. Watch the entire breakdown below: .....»»

LPU, Letran outfitter opens first-ever store and showroom

A year after returning to the local market, Team Rebel Sports Pilipinas looks to strengthen its hold with the opening of its first-ever store. Back in 1998, company founder Joel Cu, who was just 21 years old back then, opened a start-up company in Santolan that focused on making sports uniforms. Twenty years later, they are back to where it all began. "We are back in Santolan. We opened our first store here a few blocks from here," recalled Cu. "This showroom is made for our kababayan nating Pilipino. We want to produce good uniforms to our fellow Filipinos. Gumagawa nga tayo ng uniform sa ibang bansa pero ngayon, we are opening ourselves back here," he added. During the 2000s, Rebel decided to shift its model to outsourcing to foreign clients. It proved to be a success as the US and Australian markets embraced the brand. But it felt empty as Cu's main goal was to give Filipinos a local brand they can be proud of. Enter Lyceum Pirates assistant coach Jeff Perlas. "We had this informal chat last year. Sabi ni Joel, 'Jeff, how can we be active in the local sports market?' I was busy in LPU nun," shared Perlas. "For me, one way of promoting a brand is through the athletes. That's the key for this. What I did was we used the players from LPU and other players na kilala natin. From there, we were able to experiment with the power of social media.  "Surprising na last year, umakyat yung sales three-fold. Yung market reacted," added Team Rebel's consultant. PBA club team Northport Batang Pier came knocking a few months later. It was the breakthrough moment they needed. "It's our entry point last year when we rigged the jersey of Globalport," Cu shared. With the local demand growing, Cu and his staff expanded the operations of its factory in Antipolo. Twenty-four hours, seven days a week with a staff of almost 200 people were needed to accomodate the orders. At present, Rebel is the outfitter, not only of Northport, but also of collegiate powerhouses Lyceum and Letran. To cap of Rebel's year, the company opened its first store, a showroom by all accounts, at 290 Santolan Road Corner 5th Street West Crame, San Juan City. And they are hoping that this would help cater to more Filipinos. "The vision for Rebel is to focus on all sports on all levels. Marami pa e. For the public schools, we want to help them out by sponsoring their varsity teams. We are also researching more on how we can give our women's athletes the right uniforms," Cu disclosed. “Hopefully, in 2019, we can offer more to our kababayan.”.....»»

Raptors coach Nurse s 94-year-old mother dies

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse has rejoined his team in Los Angeles after the death of his 94-year-old mother. Nurse says his mother, Marcella Nurse, died Monday in Iowa, where he was born in the city of Carroll. He plans to coach Tuesday night (Wednesday, PHL time) against the Clippers and Wednesday at Golden State before returning to Iowa. “I’m here because my mother wouldn’t want it any other way,” Nurse said before the game. In June, Nurse was promoted from assistant to head coach of the Raptors after Dwane Casey was fired. He has led the team to a record of 21-7, best in the NBA. “She had a big impact because she had nine of us and I was the last one,” the 51-year-old coach said. “Lots of games — 94 years, nine kids and about 80,000 games watched are her final stats.” Marcella Nurse lived in Carroll for more than 60 years. She endured a suspenseful wait in June before Nurse was elevated to head coach of the Raptors. “The anticipation was just something you wouldn’t imagine,” she told the Daily Times Herald newspaper in Carroll. Marcella Nurse followed her youngest son’s playing exploits in basketball, football, baseball and track and field. “He was always busy, trying to learn about all kinds of sports,” she said. Marcella Nurse was preceded in death by her husband, Maurice. He died in July 2015 at age 89......»»

NU stuns defending champion Thailand at ASEAN University Games

The Philippines, represented by reigning UAAP men's champion National University, stunned titleholders Thailand, 30-28, 25-23, 25-19, in the curtain-raiser of the 19th ASEAN University Games volleyball tournament in Naypyitaw, Myanmar. The shock Pool A win virtually sealed the Filipinos' spot in the semifinals of the five-day event. The Philippines will play Malaysia on the final day of pool action Wednesday, with the Filipinos eyeing to clinch the No. 1 ranking in their group. The Thais ended up with an even 1-1 record following a 25-14, 25-12, 25-21 conquest of the Malaysians on Tuesday. The six teams were divided into two pools in the round-robin preliminaries. Only top two teams from each group in the preliminaries will advance to cross semis, with Pool A winners taking on Pool B second placers and the No. 1 team in Pool B facing Pool A runners-ups. Pool B is comprised of Singapore, Indonesia and host Myanmar.   The Burmese swept the Indonesians, 25-18, 25-16, 25-19, in their opener. The semifinals is set Thursday, while the medal matches will be played on Friday.

Aetas take part in Allianz Conquer Challenger

Allianz is doing something that has never been done before. The global insurer is celebrating the strength of indigenous people, particularly the Aetas of Porac, Pampanga, by introducing them to the rising sport of obstacle course racing (OCR). Last December 9, Sunday, the third leg of the Allianz Conquer Challenge was held in Clark Global City in Pampanga, where 20 Aetas, between 16 to 21 years old, raced together with 20 Allianz employees in the pairs category.  The Aeta participants are students of Villa Maria Integrated School, an adopted public school of Allianz PNB Life, atop the mountains in Porac, Pampanga. “We recognize the strength of the Aetas. So, aside from educating them with the basics of personal finance through our financial literacy program, we would like to impart to them the value of committing to achieve goals that they have to set. We want to give them a fair chance of having employment opportunities in the future,” explained Gae Martinez, chief marketing officer, Allianz PNB Life. Sunday’s race was a 10km-race composed of 25 obstacles, which was the same trail tackled by professional racers who competed for a slot in the upcoming South East Asian (SEA) Games. Just last month, OCR was announced a new addition to the SEA Games to be held in Clark, Pampanga.  Some of the obstacles during the race were hurdles, taho carry, tirador, spider web, monkey bars, wall of tire, slip wall, commando climb, among others. Those who incurred penalties for not being able to perform an obstacle had to carry a 30-pound sand bag. “OCR is an up and coming sport. It is gaining popularity in the Philippines. Allianz as a company uses sports to connect with communities. The Aetas from Villa Maria is one of the communities that Allianz here in the Philippines has chosen to support.  This is, in line with our advocacy to promote social inclusion, one of the pillars of our company’s Corporate Citizenship Strategy,” Martinez further said. One of the Aeta participants, Reyna Baclay, was thankful to be given the opportunity and to discover the sport that she said is closely similar to the activities they do in everyday life. “They carry sand bags here. In the mountains, we carry 50 kilos of camote or ube that we bring to the lowlands. If we sell, our families will have money to spend. By joining the race, I can tell people, I have a dream, too. I want to work in IT (information technology). I hope I can continue after I graduate,” said Baclay, who at age 18 is still a grade nine student. Another Aeta youth, Miracle Lansang, 20, grade 12, is dreaming of someday working for the air force. “I want to work for the air force. But they say I will not qualify because of my height. I have not lost my hope that it can still come true,” he said. Renz dela Cruz, 21, was a graduate of the same school. However, he had to stop and work giving a ride on his motorcycle, because his parents cannot afford to send him to college. “I dream of becoming a civil engineer. My family needs me now. I have brothers and sisters, who are studying,” he said. With the project “Sanlahi” of Allianz in the Philippines, there is hope for these Aeta youth. “Allianz is here to provide the courage to move forward, the courage to overcome life’s obstacles, for them to have better life,” Martinez said, ”As our tag line goes - we dare you to, because we’re with you.”.....»»
