Centro Escolar University completes a rare NAASCU Seniors Three-Peat!

Centro Escolar University completes a rare NAASCU Seniors Three-Peat!

NAASCU on Facebook     MANDALUYONG CITY – The Centro Escolar University Scorpions annexed its third straight National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) Seniors basketball championship by downing archrival Saint Clare College of Caloocan Saints, 71-62, and sweep the best-of-three series Saturday (October 3) at the Rizal Technological University Gym. Earlier in the day, the Lady Scorpions made it a double celebration of sorts by capturing the Women’s Division title for the fifth year in a row via a 53-37 decision over the RTU Lady Thunder.

Samboy de Leon went berserk at the start of the third period as he scored CEU’s first 12 points and build a 42-30 advantage. That proved to be enough cushion as the Saints had great difficulty at reducing their deficit with the Scorpions’ lead going to as high as 16 markers, 47-31.

Hoping to force a Game Three, the Saints staged one final rally in the fourth and closed in by seven points on the strength of back-to-back three-point plays by Jonathan Ibarra and Jeffakins Aguara with 3:34 to play, 56-63. The Scorpions countered with solid free throw shooting by Aaron Jeruta who made five gift shots in the crucial stretch before the final minute of action.

Rodrigue Ebondo then delivered a thundering dunk at the 45-second mark for the virtual knockout blow. By then both teams went through the motions with Saint Clare coach Jino Manansala and his staff crossing over to congratulate the victorious Scorpions with still 16 ticks to go.

De Leon went on to lead all scorers with 20 points followed by Jeruta with 15. Aris Dionisio came off the bench to pace the Saints with 12 points and seven rebounds followed by Jeffakins Aguara with 11 points and 16 rebounds.

For CEU coach Edgar Macaraya, the win also meant his fifth NAASCU title, including a back-to-back with the San Sebastian College-Cavite Baycats from 2008 to 2009. He is now tied with Philippine Christian University consultant Loreto Tolentino Sr. who bagged five straight titles with the University of Manila Hawks from 2001 to 2005.

Saint Clare started hot as Jordan Rios canned two quick baskets en route to a 10-6 lead. However, the CEU defense forced the Saints into a major scoring drought to tie the game after the first period, 12-12, and taking the lead for good on Jason Opiso’s field goal to open the second period scoring parade.

On his third season with the Scorpions, the hardworking exchange student Ebondo from the Democratic Republic of the Congo finally got the recognition he deserved as he was named as the season’s Most Valuable Player. Joining him in the Mythical Five were teammate Alvin Abundo, Saint Clare’s Bong Managuelod and Jonathan Ibarra and RTU’s Sandy Cenal with Mark Maloles of RTU chosen as Rookie of the Year.

The Scorpions finished the season unscathed in 10 games. They swept their six games in the elimination phase followed by a controversial 2-0 sweep of PCU in the semfinals and then the 2-0 romp in the finale against the Saints.

Other members of the champion team are JK Casino, Joseph Celso, Jhan Anunciacion, JM Vargas, Joseph Manlangit, O’Neil Arim, Sonny Boy Saber, Jeremy Gallemit, Rey Telen, Kenneth Kurt de Leon, Art Patrick Aquino and John Raphael Aranas. Assisting Coach Macaraya are Yong Garcia, Agustin Tiongco, Oscar Torres, Jay Cambarihan and Timothy Taclas with trainers Philip Go, Alex Almonte and Rachel Santos.

The Lady Scorpions are still the Queens of NAASCU Hoops, reigning since 2011!

The Lady Scorpions are still the Queens of NAASCU Hoops, reigning since 2011!

In Women’s Division play, the Lady Scorpions overcame a very sluggish start and used a strong second half performance for the school’s fifth straight championship since 2011. Just like the Seniors, the Lady Scorpions won all their six assignments as they overcame RTU for the third year in a row.

Making the achievement more remarkable was the fact that CEU for the second straight season used only nine players. Just like last season, Coach Cambarihan had to contend with a lot of player losses due to injuries or academics but it hardly mattered as the compact unit bulldozed their way to the trophy.

Limited to only four points in the first three periods, Janine Pontejos exploded for nine points in the fourth period as CEU outscored RTU, 19-6. The Lady Thunder never recovered as the Lady Scorpions cruised to the victory.

Tin Caranto had 18 points in the finale, enough for her to get the nod as the season’s Most Valuable Player. Completing the Women’s Mythical Five are Pontejos, RTU’s Angelica Jaberto, Our Lady of Fatima’s Angela Buenamente and Saint Clare’s Sam Mendoza with OLFU’s Kat Servillon as the Rookie of the Year.

Jaberto paced RTU with 10 points followed by Wiz Duazo and Rogelyn Inoferio with five points each. It was a tough loss for the Lady Thunder and Coach Gogoy Bagares as they led at halftime, 21-17, and looked well in control to force a rubber match until the second half collapse.

Completing the nine-player roster are Mary Ann Doloque, Divine Lacson, Mercy Lawan, Stefhanie Ventura, Jenina Solis, Ria Matos and Arlain Galgo. Also present to receive the trophies were CEU officials Dr. Clarito Olaer and Prof. Juanita P. Alamillo.

Meanwhile, the defending champion Saint Clare Junior Saints prevented a triple celebration as they stayed alive and forced a Game Three for the Juniors Division crown, 72-71, thanks to the marginal basket by Steve Fongue with 22 seconds to go. After a Moh Sayed Ascano miss, Ramil Tero grabbed the crucial defensive rebound and was fouled at the two-second mark, missing both his free throws but had the presence of mind to collar the offensive rebound and preserve the victory.

Phaul Rojay Santos led the Junior Saints with 15 followed by Michael Galay and Normel de los Reyes with 10 apiece. Ascano and Judel Ric Fuentes topped the Junior Scorpions with 13 points each.

Game Three of the Juniors finals will be on Monday (October 5) at the RTU Gym starting at 10:00 AM. The simple closing ceremonies for the tournament will follow immediately.

Chiefs Shame Red Lions, 91-72

NCAA Season 91     SAN JUAN City – Arellano University further complicated the playoff picture of the 91st National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) basketball tournament after crushing defending champion San Beda College, 91-72, last Thursday (October 1) at the San Juan Arena. The win boosted the Chiefs’ chances of landing a twice to beat advantage while the Red Lions bungled their chance to earn the advantage outright.

Jiovani Jalalon set the tone early by firing the first seven points of the game then added four more to complete the Chiefs’ first period romp, 27-18. The Chiefs never allowed San Beda to at least tie the game nor come close.

Jalalon was not done as he continued to pepper San Beda with timely hits in the second and third cantos. By then, Arellano held a commanding 73-56 cushion entering the final period.

The win came after the Chiefs dropped their last two games against Mapua Tech (76-81) and Letran (81-87). “This game really showed the players character coming from the two losses, they really want to make the Final Four,” said Coach Jerry Codinera after they defeated their tormentors in last season’s finals for the second time in a row.

Jalalon had another superb all-around game with 25 points, seven rebounds and eight assists. Allen Enriquez followed with 15 points, seven coming in the final period.

Ola Adeogun paced the Red Lions with 17 points and seven rebounds. Art de la Cruz was next with 10 points as no other Red Lion tallied twin digits.

In the Juniors Division, the defending champion Red Cubs moved to within one game of registering an 18-game clean sweep of the elimination round by coming from behind to thwart the Arellano Braves, 80-76. The Red Cubs will play the also-ran Letran Squires for their 18th and final assignment next week.

Samuel Abuhijleh scored six points in the fourth period en route to 23 points on top of 13 rebounds. JM Lagumen backed him up with 11.

Carlo Abadeza led the Braves with 24 point and 10 rebounds. Lars Sunga was next with 19 markers.

Meanwhile, the College of Saint Benilde Blazers clipped the Lyceum Pirates, 59-56. The La Salle Green Hills Greenies kept their playoff chances alive by beating the Lyceum-Cavite Junior Pirates, 81-66.

How They Scored:

Juniors Division

SAN BEDA-RIZAL (80) – Abuhijleh 23, Bordeos 13, Lagumen 11, Nelle 10, Alfaro 8, Tagala 5, Velasquez 5, de la Rosa 5, Etrata 0, Bonalos 0.

ARELLANO (76) – Abadeza 24, Sunga 19, Espiritu 13, Tamayo 7, Battaler 5, de la Torre 4, Calapine 2, Danas 2, Dularte 0, Fornis 0.

CEU Nears NAASCU Prize

NAASCU on Facebook     MAKATI CITY – Defending champions Centro Escolar University Scorpions are one win away from capturing their third consecutive National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) Seniors basketball championship after they subdued the tough Saint Clare College of Caloocan Saints, 83-78, Thursday (October 1) at the Makati Coliseum. Rodrigue Ebondo hit big shot after big shot to propel his team to a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series.

Reigning Most Valuable Player Samboy de Leon hit a one-hander from left side to break the game’s final tie, 74-72, and 1:35 to play. After a defensive stop, the Scorpions rushed down the court but Aaron Jeruta missed only for Ebondo to tip in the offensive rebound for more cushion at the 54-second mark, 76-72.

In a crucial moment, Jordan Rios committed a five-second inbound violation to return possession to CEU. Ebondo then delivered a booming triple from top of the key to knock the wind out of the Saints, 79-72, and 33 seconds to play.

Alvin Abundo then insured the win by sinking four free throws and adding a steal for good measure. Ebondo was the undisputed choice for Player of the Game with 13 of his 19 points in the fourth period to go with 13 rebounds.

More heroes stepped up for the Scorpions of Coach Edgar Macaraya. Abundo, Jeruta, de Leon and Jason Opiso all hit twin figures as they took turns at leading the offense for the first three periods that ended in a 55-55 stalemate.

Jonathan Ibarra tried his best to lift the Saints by firing 12 of his team-best 18 markers in the fourth period. Aris Dionisio came off the bench to chip in 11 points and seven rebounds.

Meanwhile, CEU’s entries in the other divisions completed the school’s sweep of the opening games beginning with the defending champion Lady Scorpions of Coach Jay Cambarihan routing the Rizal Technological University Lady Thunder in the Women’s Division, 66-51. Reigning MVP Janine Pontejos led the way with 22 points followed by Tin Caranto with 16.

The Junior Scorpions of Coach Yong Garcia took the first step in regaining the crown from the defending champion Junior Saints in the Juniors Division for players aged 19 years and below, 64-54. Guards Orlan Wamar, Paul Galinato and Kurt Trangia all scored in double figures as they keyed the breakaway in the second half.

Game Two in all three divisions will be on Saturday (October 3) at the RTU Gym in Mandaluyong City starting at 9:00 AM with CEU seeking a rare Triple Crown with all three teams ending the season with perfect win-loss records.

Scorpions and Saints Part IV

NAASCU on Facebook     MAKATI CITY – Saint Clare College of Caloocan booked the second spot in the finals of the 15th National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) basketball tournament by routing Rizal Technological University, 80-54, in rubber match of their best-of-three semifinal series Tuesday (September 29) at the Makati Coliseum. The Saints will now play defending champion Centro Escolar University in best-of-three series beginning at 12:00 PM of Thursday (October 1) at the same venue.

Coach Jino Manansala’s gambit of using a small lineup paid off as they scored six straight points to seize the lead for good, 12-7. Overall, starter Bong Managuelod dropped six markers as the Saints easily took the first period, 19-15.

From there, it was an all-Saint Clare show as they would play mostly with three guards and one big man. “Aside from playing small, I also decided to give more playing time to the experienced players,” explained Coach Manansala.

After his good showing in the first, Managuelod returned to further fuel Saint Clare’s breakaway in the second half. He finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and three assists to earn Player of the Game honors.

Jonathan Ibarra came off the bench to pump in 18 points. Aris Dionisio and Jordan Rios both had 15 markers and combined for 17 rebounds as Saint Clare dominated the boards, 51-34.

Despite the Blue Thunders’ constant attempts to rally, the Saints always had a ready answer and before long, the lead stretched to as much as 28 points late in the fourth period, 78-50. “I’m still proud of my players; they were just a win away from the finals and they will continue to improve next season,” said RTU coach Johnedel Cardel.

RTU main man Sandy Cenal led the way with 12 point and eight rebounds. Team skipper Storm Riva had a pair of triples in the first period for total of 10 points on top of four assists.

The Scorpions and Saints will mark the fourth straight year that they will dispute the NAASCU crown. Saint Clare was triumphant in 2012 while CEU has won the last two tournaments and is aiming for a rare three-peat.

CEU also qualified in the championship series in the other divisions. The defending champion Lady Scorpions will be challenged by the RTU Lady Thunder while the Junior Scorpions hope to snatch the trophy from the defending champion Saint Clare Junior Saints.

How They Scored:

SAINT CLARE (80) – Ibarra 18, Rios 15, Dionisio 15, Managuelod 14, Mendoza 5, Acebron 4, Aguara 4, Lunor 3, Galvelo 2, de Leon 0, Esguerra 0, Umbreit 0.

RIZAL TECH (54) – Cenal 12, Riva 10, Maloles 9, Tabi 7, Bangeles 6, Pronto 3, Malimban 3, Saborrido 2, Estoce 2, Senires 0, Villareal 0, Flores 0, Mayuyo 0, Santos 0, Peralta 0.

CEU In Finals; RTU Still Alive

NAASCU on Facebook     MAKATI CITY – Centro Escolar University claimed the first spot in the championship series of the 15th National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) by plastering Philippine Christian University, 97-75, and sweep the best-of-three semifinal series Monday (September 28) at the Makati Coliseum. The win though came at a great cost as both teams engaged in a free for all with 14.7 seconds left and the outcome long decided.

Timely intervention of game officials and security personnel prevented the trouble from further escalating. NAASCU officials decided to forego the remaining seconds and awarded the game to the Scorpions.

Even before the game could start, drama started to unfold as CEU refused to take the floor to protest the presence on the PCU bench of reserve player Fidel Castro who was serving his residency but arrived wearing a uniform. After over five minutes of negotiations, Castro quietly left and the contest finally got underway.

The Scorpions’ tactics seemed to backfire as the Dolphins started with a lot of spunk and energy, 17-9, behind a rain of triples from Yves Sazon and Dexter Mescallado. CEU recovered to eke out a one-point cushion after the first, 23-20.

Suddenly, the Dolphins’ chances hit a major snag as key players Michael Ayonayon and Brent Palattao lasped into foul trouble. Adding to their woes was the ejection of reserve center Paolo Bautista for elbowing Rodrigue Ebondo from behind with 2:20 before the halftime break.

That was the cue for the Scorpions to go for the early jugular. The lead proceeded to balloon to as high as 28 markers, 90-62.

A total of five CEU players submitted twin digits, led by Aaron Jeruta with 16 and Jason Opiso with 15. Mescallado and Sazon tried their best to prop up the Dolphins with 27 and 21 points respectively.

CEU’s advance and the ensuing events clearly stole the limelight from the Rizal Technological University Blue Thunder who forced a deciding Game Three by derailing the Saint Clare College of Caloocan Saints in the first game, 71-64. The rubber match will be on Tuesday (September 29), still at the Makati Coliseum starting at 1:00 PM.

RTU rallied from eight points down midway in the fourth period, 50-58, by rattling off 10 unanswered points courtesy of Sandy Cenal, Storm Riva and Cyrus Tabi and seize back the lead for good at the 3:20 mark, 60-58. Jeffakins Aguara briefly evened the count, 60-60, but the Blue Thunder responded with Riva dropping six straight points and Cenal added two more free throws to give them a 68-60 advantage with a minute to play.

Back-to-back baskets allowed the Saints to slightly threaten for the last time with 30 seconds left, 64-68. Fittingly, Cenal and Riva capped their fourth period heroics by icing the game and the final tally from the free throw line.

Cenal bucked early foul trouble to power RTU with 20 points and six rebounds. Tabi complemented him with 15 points and eight rebounds followed by Player of the Game Riva with 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Aris Dionisio came off the bench to pace the Saints with 15 points and 11 rebounds followed by Aguara and Nico Galvelo with 12 points each. CEU and Saint Clare have met in all the NAASCU Finals since 2012 while RTU is enjoying its best season ever since debuting in 2013.

Meanwhile, NAASCU Secretary General Jose “Pepe” Sanchez vowed to crack the whip on all erring parties from the day’s CEU-PCU fracas. “I am in consultation with Commissioner Matt Calizar and we will review the videos and hand out the sanctions before our next playing day,” said Coach Sanchez.
