Cebu posts 2nd straight win

ILOCOS SUR — The Cebu Nino’s picked up its second straight win yesterday, downing Quezon, 86-84, in the northern phase of Liga Pilipinas at the People’s Coliseum in Sto. Domingo town here.

The other day, the Ninos, behind Rino Berami who had 23 points and ex-pros Bruce Dacia and Stephen Padilla (22 and 21 points, respectively) turned back the Taguig Batang Global in overtime, 98-93.

The Ninos lost a 12-point lead with two minutes remaining, with Taguig’s Marco Fajardo hitting consecutive baskets in the waning seconds of regulation to set up the extra five-minute period, 82-all.

Cebu fell behind, 88-85, halfway in overtime, but Berami and Padilla combined to take control, steering the Ninos away from trouble down the stretch.

Against Quezon, it was Dacia once more who took up the cudgels for the Ninos, sending the Red Oilers to their second heartbreaking defeat.

In the opener Wednesday, Marlon Kalaw beat the buzzer with four-tenths of a second remaining to lift host Ilocos past Quezon, 84-82.

Eder Saldua of Ilocos had earlier tied the game, 82-all, with 1:17 to go before the Bravehearts’ defense forced a Red Oilers miss, setting up Kalaw for the game-winner.

Late in the evening, Laguna edged Baguio, 91-90, on Abby Santos’ free throw for the Stallions’ second straight win in the southern leg at Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro.

Meanwhile, Quezon battles Taguig at 3 p.m. today at the People’s Coliseum in Sto. Domingo, Ilocos Sur followed by the 5 p.m. encounter between opening day winners Cebu and host Ilocos Sur.

Pagadian upsets Cebu Niños in Liga Pilipinas

PAGADIAN City - The Cebuanos in the Pagadian Explorers lineup played villain to the cause of the M. Lhuillier-Cebu Niños as the host team scored a stirring upset over the highly favored visitors, 57-55, in the opening day of the Pagadian leg of the 2008 Liga Pilipinas.

Former University of the Visayas Baby Lancer Robert Labagala played hero as he drilled the winning basket with three-tenths of a second left to break a 55-all deadlock to gave the Explorers the win.

Talisay City born Jan Villaver also provided support as he scored the game-tying jumper at the 4:26 of the fourth. Villaver, who once saw action with the SCSIT Skyblazers and is the second leading scorer for the Explorers, finished with eight points.

Cebu, however, did not give up as coach Yayoy Alcoseba mapped out the last play to forge an overtime. However, Jayford Rodriguez’s alley-hoop basket was nullified after he released the leather a bit late to beat the buzzer.

The defeat came following an exhausting 15-hour trip from Cebu to Pagadian.

The Niños were clearly groping for form as evident of their sub-par performance—sinking only 18-of-60 attempts from the field while giving up 17 turnovers. In the final quarter, the Niños did not score a point in the last 7:26 of the game.

While Marlon Basco and Stephen Padilla had their usual numbers Bruce Dacia and Rodriguez failed to display their valuable performance.

Dacia, the Ilocos Sur leg Best Player, came into the game with an average 18.0 and Rodriguez normed 11.2, but the two explosive duo only scored two points each.

In contrast, Misamis Oriental leg Best Player Mark Yee, displayed another monster game as he nailed 12 points on top of 20 rebounds, while Labagala topped all scorers with 18.

Liga hostilities in high gear
SPORTING CHANCE
By Joaquin M. Henson
Tuesday, August 12, 2008

The wildcard phase is now underway in Liga Pilipinas’ inaugural season and action is furious as eight teams try to survive head-to-head matchups on the way to the quarterfinals.

Liga CEO Noli Eala said the grueling 13-leg, seven-week eliminations showcased the potential of a truly nationwide league with a home-and-away “tour” concept.

“Our format mimics international conditions so in that respect, we’re different,” added Eala. “In the eliminations, each leg featured a mini-tournament of five straight days where teams played for a championship. There was a lot of pressure on players to get and stay in shape. Otherwise, they wouldn’t last. I think we’ve proved the concept works with fans appreciating the excitement it brings.”

A point system was used to rank Liga’s 13 teams at the end of the eliminations. A championship in a mini-tournament was worth 10 points. Second place earned five points, third gained three and fourth counted for zero. A win in a game meant a point.

Here was how the teams ranked: 1. Cebu Ninos, 2. Pagadian Explorers, 3. Taguig Batang Global, 4. Pampanga Buddies, 5. Lipa, Batangas Barakos, 6. Baguio Victory, 7. Misamis Oriental Meteors, 8. Laguna Stallions, 9. Tagaytay-Cavite Heroes, 10. Ilocus Sur Bravehearts, 11. Iloilo Mang Inasals, 12. Quezon Red Oilers and 13. Zamboanga Amores.

Cebu, Pagadian, Taguig and Pampanga booked automatic quarterfinal slots. In the wildcard phase where the higher seed has a twice-to-beat advantage, the pairings are Batangas vs. Quezon, Baguio vs. Iloilo, Misamis Oriental vs. Ilocos Sur and Laguna vs. Tagaytay-Cavite. Eliminated was Zamboanga for bringing up the rear.

* * *

“Although Zamboanga didn’t qualify, it showed a lot of promise because the team enlisted 10 homegrown players, two over the required minimum,” said Eala. “Personally, I was impressed with Pareno, a sweet shooter who’s deadly from three-point range and a jumpshooter with a high elevation like Sunday Salvacion. I was just as impressed with point guard Chris Concepcion who reminds me of L. A. Tenorio.”

Eala said watching the Liga games opened his eyes to other talents.

“One of the most outstanding players is Pagadian’s main man Mark Yee who played for San Sebastian Cavite,” said Eala. “He’s a 6-2 wingman with long arms like Philip Cezar. There’s Iloilo’s Chito Jayme who’s applying for the PBA draft. He’s very athletic, a shooter and penetrator. Baguio has Edvert Ton who shot eight triples in a game and Banares who’s a strong point guard like Wynne Arboleda. Cebu has Jayford Rodriguez who plays like Allan Caidic and Ian Zaladaga who plays like Samboy Lim. Quezon has a new Fil-Am Ramsey Williams and Ryan Regalado. Williams had 11 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals in Quezon’s win over Batangas in a wildcard game the other day. Pampanga’s Jared Dillinger hasn’t dominated as expected but I think it’s because he’s a marked man. No doubt, he’s a gifted player and I know he’s applying for the PBA draft.”

Eala said the coaching level in Liga has made the games even more exciting. Former UST champion coach Aric del Rosario is back on duty to call the shots for Pampanga. Multi-titled Yayoy Alcoseba is on the Cebu bench. Others who are performing above par are Pagadian’s Eric Samson, Taguig’s Jude Roque, Batangas’ Roger Sia, Baguio’s Djalma Arnedo, Misamis Oriental’s Jun Noel, Laguna’s Nomar Isla, Tagaytay-Cavite’s Ato Morano, Iloilo’s Jerry Jaranilla and Quezon’s Oliver Bunyi.

* * *

The wildcard games are shown on NBN-4 from 10:30 p.m. to midnight from Wednesday to Sunday. Starting the quarterfinals next week, the schedule will be 2 to 4 p.m. from Monday to Thursday.

Pagadian and Taguig will begin hosting the best-of-five quarterfinals on Monday next week while Pampanga will take its turn on Wednesday, Aug. 20 and Cebu on Thursday, Aug. 21. The semifinals and finals are also best-of-five affairs.

“At the start, the players looked a little lost on the court because of our format,” said Eala. “But after seven weeks of play, everyone has adjusted to the system. The players are in shape, they’re showing good teamwork. The games are getting better and better in terms of quality so is the performance of our core of 17 referees. We’re still a work in progress but every day, we’re seeing improvement in our systems, in our games, in our coaches, in our referees and in our players.”

Eala said Liga’s sponsors Smart Sports, Pagcor, Laptop Exchange, Metathione, Molten and Burlington are solidly behind the promotion of the innovative league.

“More and more prospective sponsors are starting to believe in Liga, in what we stand for,” continued Eala. “The passion is evident. We’re bringing basketball back to where the fans want it – on their homegrounds. We’re seeing the benefits of a nationwide league and the country’s basketball program can only get better for it. It’s equally gratifying to note that Liga has provided at least 221 jobs for players and team officials so that’s another major contribution. Liga is truly revolutionizing the game

Here is your official Liga Pilipinas website

http://www.ligapilipinas.net/pages/

This league has the making of becoming the premium super basketball league in the Philippines, so long as the inceptioners would not bring over their heads the little progress this league has shown so far, it won't be a surprise if they'll topple the PBA in the future.

One key for the future success of Liga Pilipinas is to invest for a foreign coach that has the technical know-how on international basketball.

The PBA could only get good gate receipts and TV ratings when a popular team is on contention, this is because the intelligent Pinoy basketball fans has acknowledged that our brand of basketball can't jive what international basketball want us to do, so it follows that our brand of game does not meet international standard. It seems the PBA is too old and stubborn to bend fully its game to international standard.

Liga Pilipinas is young and full of promise, this is the perfect league to mold for international brand of basketball. It is obvious Noli Eala is stepping on a different direction from the PBA, but one key here is to invest for an international coach from South America or Europe. I tell you guys, it will hurt the league financially at the start but it will proved a worthwhile investment in the end. Ron Jacobs proved it to us.

Liga Pilipinas may want to look into that program of hiring a foreign coach, I wish they make it as part of their program in partnership with teams that are willing to do it.
