UAAP Season 77 Men’s Track and Field Day 3 Recap

Dominant.

This is the kind of performance that enabled Far Eastern University to clinch the championship even after just the 3rd day of competition in the 77th season of the UAAP track and field championships at the Philsports Arena Oval in Pasig City. After claiming three of the possible five gold medals up for grabs in day three of the competition, FEU sealed the deal to win their 5th straight championship. Had a 2009-2010 University of the East not beaten them, the team from Morayta would have made it a 10-peat considering they had another 4-peat in the bag prior to the 2009-2010 season. Even if the battle for the top spot is already in the books, look for FEU to still bring the heat in every event they are a part of, hence the word, dominant.

Track Events

Due to changes in schedule regarding the typhoon that was supposed to hit the National Capital Region, the events were condensed into one day. This led to a rescheduling of one of the day’s most exciting events into an earlier slot, the 400m dash.

From the heats to the finals, the race didn’t disappoint. Heat 1 of the elimination round featured two of the heavy favorites in the 400m dash as sprint double champion Clinton Bautista from FEU went head to head against 2nd generation athlete Michael Del Prado from De La Salle University. Both athletes finished in the low 50-second mark with Bautista only outrunning Del Prado by .08 seconds with a time of 50.03 seconds to place 2nd overall in the qualifying round. Del Prado placed 3rd overall in the first round. Although all eyes were on Del Prado and Bautista, it was be Gabriel Soriano from the University of the Philippines who stole the show by placing 1st overall in the heats, and going on to win the gold medal and ruin Bautista’s plans of achieving the sprint treble- a rare feat of winning the gold medals in the 100m, 200m, and 400m dashes. Soriano topped the elimination round by being the only athlete to break the 50-second barrier with a time of 49.86 seconds. The finals proved to live up to the hype of the eliminations as Soriano, Bautista, and Del Prado all finished within tenths of seconds away from each other. The 20-year old Soriano posted a personal best of 49.41 seconds to earn himself the gold and improved on his bronze medal finish the previous season. Bautista and Del Prado finished 49.52 and 49.89 seconds respectively to round up the top three.

Meanwhile in the 3000m steeple chase, the event witnessed the rising of a new champion. Season 76 3000m steeple chase silver medalist John Rey Moreno posted a new personal best of 9:35.52 to win DLSU’s 2nd gold medal for the competition. Not to be outdone was University of Sto. Tomas’ Rustom Nava who clocked in at 9:39.72 to claim 2nd place in the event. FEU’s Jomar Angus repeated his bronze medal performance from the previous year with a time of 9:41.36, almost 3 seconds slower than his time last year of 9:38.59. All members of the top eight finished a shade under the 10-minute and 30-second mark.

Relays are undoubtedly the highlight of each track and field competition and they lived up to their reputation on the 3rd day of competition. Apart from FEU, four other teams finished in the 43-second mark, showing how close the race was. FEU, which blazed through the competition, clocked in a time of 42.39 seconds in a race that was close up until the 3rd and 4th legs of the event. With Bautista and decathlon silver medalist Mark Ian De Los Santos running the last 200m for FEU, the competition could only do so much as they gave the last necessary push to make their win decisive. DLSU came in 2nd as Jasper Tanhueco anchored the team from Taft Avenue and out-dove a hungry and young UP team. DLSU only won by .03 seconds against UP with a time of 43.28 seconds. UE came in 4th with a time of 43.63 seconds and Ateneo de Manila University finished 5th, clocking in at 43.68 seconds. UST placed 6th with a time of 44.15 seconds and to round up the top seven was a 45.26 second performance from Adamson University.

Field Events

It was nearly an all-FEU medal haul in the two field events for the day as the top four winners in the javelin throw were all from FEU. While in the triple jump, had it not been for a 13.87m jump from DLSU’s Gerald Layumas, FEU would have brought home all medals possible for the field events on day three.

FEU’s dominance in the javelin throw showcased all four of their athletes throwing at least 46m. Kenny Gonzales took home the gold medal by throwing 56.35m, six meters off his personal best and his teammate and shot put champion Brayan-Jay Pacheco threw 53.89m to claim the silver medal. Decathlon champion Janry Ubas came in 3rd with a 47.98m throw. Completing the sweep was Rejohn Gadian who came in 4th with his throw of 46.23m.

Ubas wasn’t done for the day as he led the way in the triple jump as well with an uncontested jump of 14.84m. FEU decathlete and silver medal finisher De Los Santos finished in 2nd with a jump of 14.19m, the only other athlete to leap past the 14m mark. As mentioned earlier, DLSU’s Layumas placed 3rd to foil the all-FEU medal haul for day three. Ubas is competing for the Most Valuable Player Award this season against his compatriot Bautista and with two gold medals each, it will be up to their performances in the remaining individual events to determine which Tamaraw will be declared MVP.

FEU clinches championship; UP, DLSU, and UST all within striking distance of podium finish

With FEU in the clear, there are three teams within striking distance of the other two spots on the podium. With two gold medals apiece, UST and DLSU can make the last day of competition interesting with several events up for grabs but UP, who has a total of six medals, can still spoil the party for both UST and DLSU. As the final day of competition unravels, look to these teams to push each other to the limit to earn the coveted podium finishes that they have been training for all year-round.

Christian Standhardinger goes perfect from stripe in Hong Kong’s rout of Formosa

Published

on

After going a horrid 5-for-17 from the stripe during their first loss of the season last January 9, Christian Standhardinger made sure to make good on his free throws to power the Hong Kong Eastern Basketball Club to a dominant 99-79 rout of the Formosa Dreamers, Thursday evening in Southorn Stadium.

The 6-foot-8 Filipino-German, who tallied 37 points and 19 rebounds in the overtime loss to Saigon, went a perfect 9-for-9 from the foul line. He finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds.

The contest itself was not close, as the defending champions were able to impose their will on the bottom-ranked squad, leading by as much as 23 points, 93-70, after two free throws by Standhardinger with 2:58 remaining.

If Standhardinger was having a good day with his free throws, the entire Formosa squad could not say the same, going 13-of-27 from the line.

Tyler Lamb had 25 markers as well for Hong Kong, while Ryan Moss grabbed a triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.

Lenny Daniel paced Formosa with 25 points and 11 rebounds. World Import Ronnie Aguilar had 14 points and 16 rebounds but went just 5-for-14 from the field.

With the win, Hong Kong goes to 8-1, while the Dreamers fell to 1-8.

2018 FIBA 3X3 World Cup

Chooks-to-Go President hopes 3×3 World Cup breaks Philippine Arena record

Published

on

Last October 27, 2017, Game Seven of the PBA Governors’ Cup Finals between heated rivals Barangay Ginebra San Miguel and Meralco Bolts saw 54,083 people troop to the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan. The attendance broke all records for both the venue and the PBA.

Come June this year, the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas and Chooks-to-Go are hoping that the upcoming 2018 FIBA 3×3 World Cup will surpass that record.

“We look at 3×3 as our best hope, really, to get a medal in the Olympics. Kami naman sa Chooks, we are behind SBP realizing that dream. Kanina pinag-uusapan na, if we’re going to break the record in attendance,” said Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. president Ronald Mascariñas on Thursday afternoon during a press conference held at BGC High Street in Taguig.

“I think the question there is not if we’re going to break, but how many more times. Because FIBA should see how passionate the Filipinos are about basketball. That’s a given,” one of the patrons of Gilas Pilipinas added.

Besides the event itself, the local government of Bulacan has pledged to make the week of the tournament filled with activities to celebrate the Philippines’ 120th year of Independence.

For their part, Chooks-to-Go vowed to help out the SBP in organizing the event and in building the team.

“We are throwing our support not to improve on our finish, but we want to help SBP organize, to win the championship — not just to improve our ranking,” Mascariñas shared.

And the experience he and his company gained after backing the Pilipinas 3×3 team during last year’s tournament will only help.

“In past tournaments, we’ve lost some games na maninipis lang talaga,” he recalled about the team composed of Kobe Paras, Kiefer Ravena, Jeron Teng, and JR Quinahan that competed in Nantes, France.

“This time around, with five months to go, we need to organize and put in the best t

Ilocos United takes leave from PFL

Published

on

Another one bites the dust

After months of speculation, Ilocos United has formally announced their absence from the Philippines Football League for the 2018 season.

A statement signed by Ilocos Chief Executive Officer Tony Lazaro and posted on the club’s Facebook page broke the big news.

“Unfortunately, after months of negotiation, efforts to attract a new naming sponsor for the Team were unsuccessful,” the statement opened. “Consequently, it has become financially prohibitive to continue participation in the PFL.

“Primarily, the lack of broadcasting exposure in 2017 created an apprehension in the corporate community, cascading into a series of afflictions that has ultimately led to our withdrawal from the competition.”

Ilocos finished last during the inaugural season, tallying 1 win, 6 draws, and 21 losses with a -49 goal differential.

Still, Ilocos gave their thanks to those who supported the club during the inaugural PFL season.

“We are cautiously optimistic of a potential return to the PFL for the 2019 season, whereby secured broadcasting exposure will hopefully lead to higher confidence from potential sponsorship partners.”

While their PFL operations will fold for the time being, Ilocos will continue the grassroots programs they have started within the area. ¨In the meantime, the foundation of football development we helped to build in Ilocos will continue, including grassroots initiatives at local schools, women’s futsal, Special Olympics, and, of course, the IUFC Academy.¨

The latest development will be another big blow for the young league. Meralco Manila pulled out of the competition beforehand, and now Ilocos´ absence leaves only six teams in the competition.

Now more than ever, something needs to be done by the PFL or even the Philippine Football Federation to ensure the feasibility of the clubs and the league itself for years to come.

Football is a hard sport to build in the Philippines despite its resurgence since 2010. There are limited corporate boosters for the sport which is in dire need of a financial push to sustain its growth.

Ilocos´ leave and Meralco´s folding now forces local football´s stakeholders to take a step back and examine the next moves to build the sport.

CJ Perez, Jaycee Marcelino in unison: D-League is a whole other level

Published

on

After falling just two games short of copping Lyceum’s first-ever NCAA crown, the Pirates went to the PBA D-League to gain experience. However, in their first foray in the second league, the Lyceans realized that it was a whole different beast.

Going up against the veteran-laden Marinerong Pilipino Skippers, the Zark’s Burgers-backed squad suffered a slow start as they adjusted to the tougher calls of the league. The Jawbreakers were down by as much as 17 points early in the third frame, 37-54.

“Yung physicality hindi naman ako masyadong nagulat pero sa mental toughness, yung pagod ka na, tapos may babanggga pa sa ‘yo, ang iniisip ko kailangan mas maging tough,” admitted reigning NCAA Most Valuable Player CJ Perez.

“Nangangapa kami nung una lahat kasi first game namin ito, pati dito sa court na ‘to first game din namin,” added Jaycee Marcelino.

It served as a wake-up call. Adjusting on the fly, Perez and Marcelino rallied the Jawbreakers back — even fashioning multiple attempts to take over the contest late in the game. However, they fell short, 92-94.

“Binalik lang namin yung laro namin dati, pass the ball, hindi yung puro dribble, i-run lang namin yung plays,” shared Marcelino, as he and Perez combined to score 16 points in the final frame.

The 21-year-old Marcelino finished with a game-high 20 points on an efficient 7-of-9 shooting to go along with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, and a block. The 24-year-old Perez added 19 points, five assists, two steals, and a block.

With their first game in the bag, the duo — and the rest of the Jawbreakers — now have the experience under their belts. And they plan to put in the work to prove that they belong.

“Sa NC naman kasi puro ka-level namin kalaro namin, dito puro beterano ang naglalaro,” said Marcelino. “Hindi talaga namin masabi na yung ginawa namin sa NC magagawa din namin dito.

“Mageextra work pa kami para masustain namin kung ano kami sa Lyceum.”

“It’s a good experience. Ibang iba pala talaga yung laro ng D-League sa NCAA,” expressed Perez, who is a consensus top three pick for the upcoming PBA Rookie Draft.

“Sobrang grateful kami na nakalaro na rin kami sa D-League.”
