UAAP Season 75: Tigers slay another favorite

29 07 2012

After losing a heartbreaker in their opening game of the Season 75 of the UAAP against the FEU Tamaraws, the UST Growling Tigers have 2 defeated two Season 75 favorites in a row highlighted by great comebacks from large deficits.  First, they beat 5-peat seeking Ateneo Blue Eagles last week by rallying from a 15 point half-time deficit to score an awe-inspiring 71-70 win. Yesterday, they cemented their status as one of the teams to watch as they gave the NU Bulldogs a lesson on resiliency as they trailed the whole game and were down 53-63 at one point in the final period before clawing back and winning 77-71.

Jeron Teng conspired with Aljun Mariano, Kevin Ferrer, Melo Afuang and Karim Abdul in a blistering 15-3 run to take the lead at 68-66 from a ten-point deficit.  Teng scored 6 points behind two booming treys in that run.  Bobby Ray Parks Jr. temporarily stopped the bleeding for Bulldogs by making 3-point shot to bring back the lead to NU 69-68.  The Growling Tigers responded with a game-ending 7-0 run for 75-69 lead. After 2 free throws by both teams the score in the end was 75-69 in favor of UST.

Teng led the Tigers with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Karim Abdul had a double-double with 11 points and 15 rebounds along with 2 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.  UST dominated the boards 54-43 with Ferrer and Mariano grabbing 8 boards a piece.

Parks as usual led the Bulldogs with 25 points, 4 boards, 4 assists, 1 steal and 3 blocked shots. NU shot themselves in the foot by missing half of their 24 free throws. Parks and Joshua Alolino each had 4 misses at the charity stripe .

The win moved UST to 2-1 while dropping NU to 2-2.

In the first game, Ateneo walloped rivals La Salle, 71-61.

2012 PBA Governor’s Cup Finals: RoS takes 2-1 lead sans Paul Lee

28 07 2012

Smart Araneta Coliseum – With their top scorer watching in the sidelines wearing a sling, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters gave their top rookie Paul Lee a reason to enjoy the ringside seats as they delivered a stunning performance and won 93-84 over the B-Meg Llamados.

Coach Yeng Guiao backed his guarantee that the Painters can win without Lee. Lee injured his shoulder while attempting to slap the ball away from Peter June Simon‘s hand in the 4th quarter of Game 2. In Game 3, the Painters actually started tentatively as they allowed the Llamados to open the game with 7-0 blast. They managed to bring down the lead to four at 19-23 at the end of the first quarter.

The Elasto Painters controlled the second quarter to emerge with a 2-point lead going to the halftime break. The floodgates opened for Rain or Shine in the 3rd canto as they poured it on and outscored B-Meg 30-20 to extend their lead to 12. The Elasto Painters hit 5 three point shots in the crucial quarter.  They manage to increase the lead to 21 early in the final period before the shock troopers of the Llamados brought the lead back to 7 with under a minute left.  Jeff Chan was steady on the line to ice the game for the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.

Cornley outplays Blakely in Game 3

Jamelle Cornley had a monster game with 26 points, 15 rebounds, and five assists.  He outscored the combined 24-point output of B-Meg counterpart Marcus Blakely, James Yap, and Simon. Jeff Chan contributed 18 big points all scored in the second half. Jireh Ibanes was hot in the first period and ended up with 12.  B-Meg was top scored by Jonas Villanueva‘s 18 markers.

In the post-game interview, Cornley reiterated that he came to the Philippines not to become the best import but to win the championship.  He even quipped that he vote for Blakely as best import and he can keep the trophy if he wants to. Cornley is showing the PBA and RoS fans that he is committed to a championship with or without star rookie Paul Lee.

 

The Scores:

RAIN OR SHINE 93 – Cornley 26, Chan 18, Ibanes 12, Buenafe 11, Norwood 10, Tang 6, Arana 6, Belga 4, Cruz 0, Quinahan 0

Quarters: 19-23, 40-38, 70-52, 93-84
