\n

Exile was perfect in five games as they won the championship in the Aquinas School Alumni 3X3 Tournament.

\n

A team led by Joey Valencia alongside Larry Rivera, Paul Gan and Mario Reyes, Exile had an easy job going to the finals after defeating four other\n teams - the 96ers, Ninja Kids, Batch 94, and Mamba.

\n

The Ninja Kids opened the exit door for the Mamba in the first round of playoffs, while the 96ers kept Batch 94 winless to qualify for the semifinals.\n

\n

It was an intense action in the semifinals, but the 96ers was able to escape Ninja Kids to set a match with Exile.

\n

With enough rest going to the final match, Exile did not need the 10-minute time to lapse as they easily reached the 21-point mark to complete a sweep\n of the one-day contest.

\n

\"Masaya ako na naging MVP ako dito sa Aquinas 3X3. Nagpapasalamat ako sa suporta ng boss namin, si Joey Valencia, and masaya akong nakatulong sa school\n namin,\" said 3X3 MVP Larry Rivera.

\n

\n

3X3 as a sport for Aquinians

\n

The game of 3X3 Basketball is continuously gaining popularity in the country. A lot of basketball organizers have ventured in the sport and were successful\n in this program. And so to experience how 3X3 Basketball is being played, the Aquinas Alumni set up their own one-day competition.

\n

Five teams battled for the first Aquinas Alumni 3X3 Basketball title - Exile, 96ers, Mamba, Ninja Kids, and Batch 94 - which was eventually held by\n team of Exile, consisting of Joey Valencia, 3X3 MVP Larry Rivera, Paul Gan, and Mario Reyes.

\n

After the exhausting collisions, some of them gave their thoughts on how the game was played.

\n

\"It's a fast pace game. Mabilis ang transition and halos tuluy-tuloy ang laro. It's a brand new way of playing basketball,\" said Vincent Cortez of\n team Mamba.

\n

\n

Exile's Valencia expressed that this sport is a lot more tiring than the full court matches because of its fast pace nature.

\n

\"It's been 25 years since the last time na naglaro ako ng 3X3. High school pa. Sobrang nakakapagod pala and nakakapaibago yung liit ng bola,\" said\n Exile player Joey Valencia said.

\n

For 96ers' Ibanez, \"Sobrang nanibago ako dito sa 3X3. Napakalaki ng difference nya sa 5 on 5. Sobrang bilis and nakakapagod dahil sa pace ng laro.\"

\n

\n

Upon the success of their first 3X3 Tournament, Cortez said that they would like to make it a bigger event in the future with more teams to participate.

\n

Sports and entertainment are two different fields that are closely related to each other. And if these two joined forces, a huge success in the business\n industry is what to be expected.

\n

Recently, Exile Inc. has joined the pool of partners of Kings of the Court PH. The former as a giant in the entertainment production and equipment, and\n the latter as a well-built sports organizing body in the metro.

\n

But before we discuss the partnership of these two companies, let's talk about the background and history of the newest sponsor of KOTC.

\n

What is Exile Inc.?\n
\n

\n

The Exile Inc. is a professional provider of sound reinforcement, lighting, special lighting effects, LED's and LCD projectors, rigging/aluminum trusses\n and generators for corporate events, product launchings, and a wide variety of touring artists both local and foreign.

\n

Led by its founder and president, Mr. Joey Valencia, Exile Inc. aims to become the country's leading corporate choice partner in providing the most technologically\n sophisticated equipment in the industry.

\n

\"Exile is a provider of lights and soubds for entertainment production. Anything about technical concern, kami ang nagsu-supply,\" said Valencia.

\n

Related to former President Ferdinand Marcos ousting, Valencia and his partners decided to use the term \"Exile\" as the origin of their company name.

\n

The company has been around for 34 years and has catered services to well-known organizations in the entertainment industry, including the two entertainment\n giants, ABS-CBN and GMA.

\n

\n

\n

Exile Inc. Road to Success\n
\n

\n

How Exile Inc. started was quite similar to KOTC. According to Valencia, venturing to this business began as a hobby that eventually turned into a\n serious business.

\n

Just like any other company, Exile climbed up from the bottom to the top and faced hindrances along the way, which according to Valencia was part of\n his company's growth.

\n

\"Financially, since we only started it as a hobby, hindi naging madali. We borrowed capital sa parents namin and 'yon ang ginamit namin to startup,\"\n Valencia remembered.

\n

Having provided excellent service to numerous clients, Exile Inc. has gained popularity in the industry and became the sought-after company for entertainment\n equipment needs.

\n

\n

\n

Partnership With KOTC

\n

Basketball became a part of Valencia's youth. Although he got no time to play for some years before, he is giving the sport another try to help in\n keeping his body healthy.

\n

\"During my high school days, naglalaro talaga kami dito sa Aquinas School. Laro-laro lang, 3 on 3, ganun. Then five years ago, na-invite ako ng kaibigan\n ko maglaro hanggang sa nakahiligan ko ulit and hanggang ngayon, naglalaro pa rin ako,\" Valencia narrated.

\n

\"Sobrang laki ng benefit ng basketball lalo na sa health ko. I'm already 50 (years old), kaya yung pagiging active especially sa basketball ay nakakatulong\n sa katawan. Syempre stop din sa ilang bisyo, sa pag-iinom and sa pagpupuyat.\"

\n

Part of his enthusiasm to basketball is joining some leagues, which became the way for him to know about Kings of the Court. Mike De Castro, also an\n alumnus of Aquinas School, invited Valencia to be part of their team in the OTBL which was co-organized by KOTC.

\n

By then, Valencia has been an active participator in some of KOTC's leagues and formed the team of Exile as a heavy competitor in the Corporate Division.

\n

Satisfied with the services of KOTC, Valencia and KOTC president Cholo Legisma had a meeting and talked about their plan to create a partnership between\n the two companies.

\n

\"I talked to Cholo and sabi ko sa kanya interesado ako suportahan ang KOTC, and in return syempre suportahan niya rin ako. Ganun'ng partnership. Gusto\n ko din maging part ng success ng KOTC and madala din 'yung pangalan ng Exile,\" Valencia concluded.

\n

For Mr. Valencia, to become successful in business, number one is to give focus and be hands on to your business and value your clients well.

\n

Start of a Long Relationship\n
\n

\n

Now that Exile Inc. and KOTC are working as one, a more exciting basketball experience awaits the teams and the players. There is no doubt these\n two companies can be considered as perfect partners, a lasting relationship that we can expect.

\n

New season, new home, new basketball experience.\n
\n

\n

This 2020, Architects Basketball Union (ABU) promised to elevate the game experience of its members as it launched the 2020 1st Boysen Cup at their newest\n home, Aero Center in Quezon City last February 8, Saturday.

\n

\n
\n

\n

\"It's a turning point for the club, a milestone na nakapagpalit kami ng court for the past 12 years, from CCP (Central Colleges of the Philippines) dito\n na tayo ngayon sa Aero Gym,\" said ABU President Don Ferrer.\n
\n

\n

\"As the direction of Board of Trustees, we want to improve the experience of the members and first para doon is 'yung pagpapalit ng court,\" he added.\n
\n

\n

Ferrer also commended the facility of their newest venue as it provided everything they needed, such as the sound system, shower and comfort rooms, parking\n space, accessibility to public transportation, client relation assistants, and especially the wooden basketball court.\n
\n

\n

In the first three games of the season, Wood Prime won against Permacoat as Lester Ong tallied 20 points, 15 rebounds, and two blocks, while Jonathan Dy-Sun\n and Emil Ilagan contributed 28 and 16 markers, respectively.\n
\n

\n

Wylland Oppuer banked on Patrick Rogando's double-double of 15 points and 15 rebounds, and Guio Banigued's 25 as they defeated Titan Elastomeric, 76-69.\n
\n

\n
Bumi Asanza had 10 points, 15 rebounds, and five blocks, Jeff De Guzman contributed 23 markers and 12 boards, and Earl Bello posted a game-high of 30 points\n as they beat Wallguard, 88-73.\n
\n
\n

Being the club's consistent major sponsor, Ferrer acknowledged the continuous support of Boysen which helped in their success.\n
\n

\n

\"We are always grateful sa support ng Boysen dahil sila ang major sponsor ng ABU. But in return, continuous din and support ng ABU members sa products\n ng Boysen to keep the strong relationship,\" Ferrer explained.\n
\n

\n

Like the past years, ABU will be having three conferences for this season: two Boysen Cups and the Corporate Cup in the middle of the year.\n
\n

\n

For the second straight year, ABU tapped Kings of the Court as the official organizing partner for the whole season.\n
\n

\n

Concluding his statement, \"To our members, keep on supporting the club and enjoy the game.\"

\n

\n

 The DLSZ Junior Archers absorbed its 6th  loss in nine outings after succumbing to a momentum shift\n by the UE Baby Warriors in the fourth, 81-68 in the 2nd Round of the UAAP Season 82 Juniors Division. \n

\n

Eionn Montecastro and Naz San Juan drilled back-to-back threes with 1:16 left in the third to erase a 47-deadlock, sparking an ensuing rally that buried\n the Alabang-based squad on this Sunday morning at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

\n

What was a five-point lead at the end of the third ballooned in the payoff period. UE finally sat with its biggest lead at 17 after outscoring DLSZ 24-12,\n avenging its bitter 1stround loss via a Ranz Unisa buzzer-beater.

\n

Vhoris Marasigan erupted for 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Jann Cruz scored 14, as both spearheaded UE’s glaring advantage in fastbreak points 22-8.

\n

While DLSZ had the slight advantage in points in the paint 38-32, cold shooting couldn’t come at a worse time, as they were held to 5/32 from three-point\n territory. Kobe Dalisay was 1/10 from downtown. He would finish with seven points. UE, meanwhile had everything going for them so much that Marasigan\n banked a three with the shotclock winding down at the 3:20 mark of the fourth.

\n

\n
\n

\n

Kean Baclaan held his own with 18 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists, while Ibrahim Omer contributed 12 markers and 5 boards as both heard Coach Boris Aldeguer’s\n directive to attack the basket and not just settle for outside shots.

\n

DLSZ went off to a 6-0 run early in the game care of threes by Uno Del Mundo and Ranz Unisa, but UE countered with a 7-0 of its own. From then on, the\n game became a cat-and-mouse affair wherein the Junior Archers made runs but the Baby Warriors always had a counter.

\n

\n
\n

\n

UE was constantly pressuring Baclaan, so DLSZ always had to switch things up. Both Miko Reyes and Uno Del Mundo got the call to help inside and assist\n executing plays, respectively. For Del Mundo, however, there is still a vast room for improvement.

\n

“Hindi ko ineexpect na bibigyan ako ng ganitong minutes. Sa practice kasi, pinakita ko naman kanila coach kung ano kaya kong gawin. Pero kailangan pa dagdagan\n ang effort ko sa defense at pagtulong sa pag execute ng plays”. Del Mundo was best in efficiency at +4.

\n

\n
\n

\n

John Quimado, last game’s beast, was held to four points but managed to grab the team-high 10 boards. John Cudiamat, meanwile tallied 10 points in the\n game, including a 3rdquarter three that sparked DLSZ’s run to tie the the game.

\n

Ranz Unisa had four, while Jose Milan and Junjun Melecio both finished with two points.

\n

The DLSZ Junior Archers’ next assignment is the defending champions and still undefeated NU Bullpups, January 22, 3:00pm at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

\n

For Coach Boris, the season will always be about learning and improvements. This is a young and growing team that is bound for great things. However, the\n fact that these boys have been fighting throughout is already victory in itself, and the pride they bring in representing the green and white.

\n

After a month-long break, the DLSZ Juniors Archers are back on the winning column.

\n

The green and white shook off the rust in the first half to unleash a furious 16-point turnaround, completing a mastery of the UPIS Junior Fighting Maroons\n 94-81 in Season 82 of the UAAP Juniors Division, Sunday noon at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

\n

Weathering a first quarter UPIS rally that saw them trailing as much as 15 early on, the team got a huge boost from John Quimado who finished with 17 points\n and 11 rebounds, and Kean Baclaan who totaled 18 markers including 12 boards and 5 dimes.

\n

How they did it was simple. The coaches recognized the advantage, and the players responded.

\n

Seeing the advantage inside the paint, John Quimado came out the second half owning the boards in almost every possession, and going hard to the basket\n amidst taller opponents. With him on the floor, DLSZ outscored UPIS 34-10 inside, and 22-4 in the second chance category.

\n

The right mindset and proper conditioning, according to him, was key to his stellar performance. “Palagi kong iniisip nung holiday na nung 1stround,\n hindi ako komportable sa cinontribute ko. Kaya hindi ako nagrelax sa probinsya. I always did extra work. Kahit na may lakad yung pamilya ko, hindi\n na ako masyado sumasama kasi inuuna ko yung kunidsyon ko. Two years nang wala ang La Salle sa Final Four, kaya nagusap usap kami na hindi namin dapat\n pabayaan sarili namin.”

\n

Baclaan, meanwhile, came out a man possessed, scoring 16 of his 18 points in the second half. He drove through the lane any chance he got, both in set\n plays and transition. Come fourth quarter, he would simply become unstoppable. He drilled the dagger trey as he flashed his jersey to the crowd to\n cap off his brilliant outing.

“Bubuhayin ko yung sarili ko at bubuhayin ko yung team para makabalik kami sa 2ndhalf” said the former San Sebastian standout on his performance.\n While he understood the process it takes to be at the top, Baclaan acknowledged the progress of the team, and how he will contribute further. “Ngayong\n second round, mas buo na kami. Mas lalaban na kami at wala na kami kinakatukan. Gusto ko isa ako sa mga maging leader kahit isa ako sa pinakabata.”

\n

DLSZ outscored UPIS 28-19 in the third quarter, and 24-17 in the fourth.

\n

Also notable in this game is team captain Jac Macasaet, who scored all 10 of his points in the first half, keeping his team afloat amidst a lackluster\n first quarter. More importantly, he tallied the highest efficiency rating of +17 in this game. Reynold Tupas, meanwhile had +15 in efficiency.

\n

Ibrahim Omer was Quimado’s partner-in-crime inside, finishing with 10 points and 9 rebounds in the contest. Kobe Dalisay meanwhile, who torched UPIS in\n the first round, did the part once again as he scored 14 points off of four three-pointers. Jon Cudiamat and Ranz Unisa finished with 8 and 7 markers,\n respectively.

\n

The win improved the team’s record to 3-5, providing a much needed springboard in their next outings. For Coach Boris Aldiguer, this win showed the\n fight in them.

\n

 

\n

\n

 

\n

“It’s already natural for the players to think that our backs are against the wall. I was telling them about the sense of urgency; I don’t have to\n motivate them anymore. The status we are in is already motivation to fight back”.

\n

He also acknowledged the progress of his team, given the short period of preparation.

\n

“They’re playing together now. Remember, when we formed this team, it was midway August, so we are still trying to find out our identity. But they’re\n playing well with each other already, and while there are things to work on, this game will help us with that.”

\n

Ray Torres finished with 29 points in full 40 minutes of action for UPIS, while Jose Gomez De Liano tallied 20 in the contest. Sean Torculas and Jean\n Canillas contributed with 11 and 10 markers, respectively.

\n

The team will look to use this win as momentum when they face a dangerous FEU Baby Tamaraws squad (7-1) on Wednesday, 9:00am at the Filoil Flying V\n Arena.

Calm and collected. UST’s Jacob Cortez had the timely answers against the fiery DLSZ run at the stretch to escape with a victory. The baby faced guard\n was masterful even against outstanding DLSZ defense as he scored off a euro-step layup to stave off the Junior Archers, 68-65.

\n

The Tiger Cubs started by dumping the ball to John Lina, who scored the first 7 points of UST. Though height being a disadvantage of the Junior Archers,\n the DLSZ bigs weathered the storm of UST by playing hardnosed defense – highlighted by a huge block by Alonzo Luna.

\n

Down by 6 entering the second period, Miko Reyes was inserted to hound UST’s John Lina. Reyes guarded Lina throughout the length of the court well enough\n to draw a technical foul from the UST center. With UST’s game slightly rattled, guards Kean Baclaan and Reynold Tupas got to work as they cut the deficit\n to just 3 points. With Lina’s game sidelined momentarily, it was the turn of Jethro Escoto and Rojan Montemayor to take the spotlight as they mounted\n a 10-3 run to push their lead to double digits. Kean Baclaan and Jiro Sevilla’s pair of triples helped DLSZ to cut UST’s lead to 38-32 heading to the\n break.

Jacob Cortez started the third canto hot as he quickly scored 6 points to once again bring UST at the helm. Down but not out, Kean Baclaan took the game\n to his own hands as he sliced through the defense of UST to either make acrobatic layups or dropoff passes to our big men. Even slightly hurt, Baclaan\n managed to sink a layup to knot the teams at 50 apiece.

\n

\n

With momentum now on DLSZ’s side, the Junior Archers were able to get contributions from other players such as John Quimado’s triple to start the last\n quarter. At the 5:53 mark of the game, Kean Baclaan was forced to leave the playing court as he was called for his second technical foul. With the\n Junior Archers’ leading scorer unavailable at the crucial stretch, Reynold Tupas stepped up to take the lead. Down 6 with two minutes remaining, Tupas\n scored 4 of the 6 DLSZ points to tie the ball game at 64. Tupas was sensational in leaking out on fastbreaks and even making double pump scoops against\n the towering defense of UST.

\n

Less than a minute remaining, UST put the ball in Jacob Cortez’s hands – and did they make the right decision. Hounded by the guards of DLSZ, Cortez found\n a way to weave through a hard pick then escape the help defender with a euro-step for UST to reclaim the lead at 66-64. DLSZ’s Ranz Unisa then sunk\n 1/2 free throws to cut the deficit to a solitary point. But once again Cortez drove right and eluded the block with a late-released shot to drain the\n winning basket. DLSZ drew up an effective play, leaving Kobe Dalisay free for a three but unfortunately missed the basket. DLSZ recovered the offensive\n board but was little too late to get another decent attempt.

\n

UST’s John Lina led all scorers with 15 points while guards Jethro Escoto and Jacob Cortez added 14 points each. Versatile wingman Rojan Montemayor also\n chipped in with 11 markers while adding 8 boards.

\n

\n

\n

Reynold Tupas led DLSZ with 14 points on 60% shooting. He also added 3 assists under his name. Kean Baclaan scored 13 points. John Quimado was a point\n shy of a double-double with 9 points and 10 boards. Though not evident in the stat sheet, Miko Reyes showed a lot of promise and toughness against\n the big men of UST.

\n

DLSZ will have some time to make adjustments during the holiday break. In fact, for a rebuilding squad, the team has done exceptionally well against the\n other “established” junior rosters. Most of their losses were winnable games – with just some lapses that cause the other teams to break away. Their\n 2-5 record is far and undermining of the talent and elite this team possesses.

\n

\n

\n

\n

It’s also evident that this team has HEART. They bring a fire in every game to compensate for their lack of experience. And not to mention their work goes\n beyond their minutes on the floor. With the lack of crowd support, their bench has to do all the cheering. The number of supporters of the Junior Archers\n are limited to the few relatives of the players – which can be easily counted by hand. An absent pep squad has been a shock as well, as the DLSZ Animo\n Squad has always been a backbone of support in the previous years. This first round? Not so much. The Junior Archers were left without the “Animo”\n of the pep squad in their last four games.

\n

The team is aware of the critics – even from their own beloved alma mater. They handle it well. They’ve braved through several absences of key players\n due to injuries – including their prized big man. Nevertheless, they still brought the Animo. But did you? The team needs your support. Come and fight\n with the team in the second round. Join their journey and experience how and why this team truly Bleeds Green.

With this year’s roster of 11 rookies and a shortage of big men, a rebuilding team will inevitably face adversity. The Junior Archers succumbed to yet\n another double digit loss this time to the hands of the Baby Tamaraws, 80-63. But deep in the locker rooms the boys know that this is the process to\n achieve greatness.

\n

DLSZ started the game on a high note as the boys in green and white possessed a 14-8 lead thanks to Pauloh Villarin’s three triples. Mainly due to an improved\n press break, DLSZ ended the first quarter with an 18-16 advantage.

\n

\n

\n

The second period started with a bad omen as Pauloh Villarin sustained a hip injury after a midair collision off a loose ball. The Baby Tamaraws took advantage\n of the mishap as they mounted an 18-3 run to earn a double digit lead. With exception to hard drives by Kean Baclaan and triples by Ivan Cudiamat and\n Kobe Dalisay, offense was clearly a problem for the Junior Archers as they were consistently forced to shoot with time winding down.

\n

\n

\n

After being down by a dozen in the first half, DLSZ was able to cut the lead of FEU at 46-40 led by Kobe Dalisay’s twin triples and strong finishes by\n John Quimado. But the Baby Tamaraws were unfazed as they went for a 12-2 run on constant second chance points. FEU-Diliman would never look back.

\n

Five Baby Tamaraws scored in double figures led by Anfernee Estacio’s 16 markers. More impressive was three players ended up with double-doubles. FEU center\n Chiolo Anonuevo tallied a stat line of 10 points, 14 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 blocks, and a steal.

\n

\n

\n

\n

Kobe Dalisay once again led the Junior Archers’ offense with 18 points coming off of 6 three pointers. Kean Baclaan yet again impressed with 16 points,\n 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals. Pauloh Villarin finished with 9 points in under 10 minutes.

\n

\n

\n

Coach Boris Aldeguer makes it a habit that his players go home with lessons gained instead of games lost. “Few years ago standing namin sa first round\n 2-5 but we made it to the Final Four. Anything can still happen.”, Aldeguer recalled. He also pleaded for the rest of the team to give their 100%\n effort in every game. “We have to get more production from the others, and I’m not talking about points. I’m talking about yung mga hindi lumalabas\n sa stat sheet.”

\n

In their lone game so far in the Blue Eagle Gym, the drums of the pep squad were deafening. However, it was only the cheers of the Baby Tamaraws heard\n as the Junior Archers went without the support of their pep squad. This is yet another call for Lasallians to give the Junior Archers the attention\n they deserve. YOU can do so as DLSZ faces the UST Tiger Cubs on December 8 to end the first round. Game tips off at 11am as venue shifts back to\n Paco Arena.

When you’re hot, you’re hot. Though not known for being a threat from the outside, the Adamson Baby Falcons used their perimeter shooting to make seven\n triples in the third quarter to create the needed separation over the Junior Archers.

\n

It was a seesaw encounter in the first half as the Junior Archers would drive and kick the ball out to open teammates effectively. With players such as\n Jose Milan and Alonzo Luna lurking under the basket, they would get buckets through dropoff passes by the likes of Ranz Unisa and Kean Baclaan to get\n an 18-16 advantage after the first quarter.

\n

\n

With John Quimado being inserted at the second canto, DLSZ extended the lead to 21-16 – their largest in the game. But there was an uneasiness in the Junior\n Archers’ game as they seemingly continued to miss shots that they usually make. Adamson’s Marcus Nitura and Sherfrazkhan Abdulla made the most of the\n missed opportunities of DLSZ as they slowly crept back in and even snatched the lead at the end of the half, 32-30.

\n

\n

Coming off some momentum at the first half, the Baby Falcons extended their run at the start of the third quarter with Nicole Quinal leading the sharpshooting.\n Adamson drained four straight triples and a couple of inside buckets to amount a 16-0 run. DLSZ’s Kobe Dalisay and Uno Del Mundo struck gold as they\n also hit their own versions of the three-pointer, however, Adamson was just too hot that afternoon, draining 7 of their total 11 triples in the third\n quarter to practically squash the hopes of the DLSZ Junior Archers. Adamson outscored DLSZ 33-16 in the third period to create the needed space to\n break away.

\n

Adamson’s Marcus Nitura led all scorers with 21 points on an efficient 7/12 clip from the field while three other Baby Falcons entered double figures.

\n

\n

For the first time this season, no Junior Archer scored in double digits as they were led by Kean Baclaan and Kobe Dalisay with 9 points apiece. John\n Quimado was specifically effective on the boards as he scored 7 points – most off second chance opportunities.

\n

\n

\n

It was definitely a panicked squad that showed up that afternoon as the Junior Archers turned the ball over in 25 occasions while also committing 26\n fouls. For Head Coach Boris Aldeguer, this is an inevitable lesson that any rebuilding team would have to face.

\n

“Lesson learned here is we lost our composure.”, said Coach Boris Aldeguer. “You have to be composed. You’ll only learn that through experience – and\n ‘eto na yun. Kahit hindi sa basketball. You have to be composed.”

\n

With the players visibly disappointed at themselves, Coach Aldeguer challenged the boys to rise up. “Magmumukmok ba tayo? Or do we welcome this, move\n on, and laban ulit?”

Let’s support the DLSZ Junior Archers as they continue their bid for a Final Four ticket. Their next challenge is against #2 team FEU Baby Tamaraws\n this Sunday (December 1). Venue now switches to the Ateneo Blue Eagle Gym while the game tips off at 3pm.

Height is might, so they say. Now pair that with experience – that for you was the version of the NU Bullpups that our DLSZ Junior Archers faced.

\n

The Junior Archers took an early 5-2 lead via a Jiro Sevilla three pointer and Kean Baclaan coast-to-coast bucket, but the Bullpups never looked back after\n a 12-0 blitz. DLSZ did give NU trouble on the defensive end but the Junior Archers would struggle to convert those efforts into points. On the other\n hand, a couple of threes by Terrence Fortea and Carl Tamayo solidified NU’s first quarter lead at 23-11.

Though the bigs of the Bullpups continued to dominate the paint, the Junior Archers looked sharp on their offensive sets. Kobe Dalisay came out of\n his two game slump by draining three straight triples midway through the second period. DLSZ came as close to just trailing 30-23 when NU went\n on a 19-2 run to finally blow the game wide open.

To add to the woes, Jiro Sevilla dislocated his finger on an attempt to steal the ball but carried on to continue hustling on defense. “Inisip ko lang\n si coach (Boris Aldeguer). Ayoko siyang ma-disappoint. Talagang nag-tiwala siya sa akin. He took the risk. Hindi ako pwede mag give up.”

\n

“We have to play like a team. There were instances may teamwork tayo so we were able to score and connect. But when we started going into isolation,\n doon nakaka-score ang NU.”, Coach Boris Aldeguer uttered. “We move on! Let’s forget about this. Heads up!”

\n

Kobe Dalisay led all scorers with 24 points. He torched the nets with an 8/13 clip from beyond the arc. Ibrahim Omer yet again tallied double digits\n in rebounds with 10 boards, while adding 4 points and 4 assists.

In what should have already been a UE Junior Warriors victory, the DLSZ Junior Archers showed the fight that the whole Lasallian community deserves. Ranz\n Unisa scored the final 5 points of DLSZ, finished by a basket under the goal off a Reynold Tupas tip to elevate the Junior Archers to a 2-1 record.

\n

Both teams and spectators inside Paco Arena held their breaths as the officials reviewed the last play. After what seemed to be an eternity of a minute,\n the lead referee finally ruled the basket as counted to the joy of the whole Lasallian brigade.

\n

DLSZ went hot to create a 9-2 advantage in the first minutes of play led by Pauloh Villarin’s efficient shooting. But after figuring out the Junior\n Archers’ defense, the Junior Warriors continuously drove to the baseline to keep the zone of DLSZ confused. Due to several steals by UE, they eventually\n knotted to score at 15 all before a John Quimado buzzer beater from a dropoff pass care of Reynold Tupas to end the quarter with DLSZ up, 17-15.

With steady guard Uno Del Mundo inserted in the second quarter, the Junior Archers created a 30-23 cushion. Del Mundo set up his teammates off\n pick and roll plays while also draining his own version of a triple. Though not known for their outside shooting, UE mustered an 8-0 run off\n two three pointers by Vehnjamin Maximo and Neil Cabili to take the lead at 31-30. But Kean Baclaan emerged to score two huge baskets beyond\n the arc to give the Junior Archers a 36-31 lead at the end of the half. Baclaan scored 12 of his total 24 points in the second period alone.

\n

UE blitz to a 13-2 run to start the second half as Cyrus Austria slowly chipped in some points. Reynold Tupas and Kean Baclaan continued to drive\n to the paint to keep the game within striking distance as UE’s Cyrus Austria continued to pour in the baskets. With big men Jose Milan and\n Ibrahim Omer finally coming into the play to score baskets inside, DLSZ was finally able to tie the ball game up at 53 apiece. The Junior Archers\n finished strong in the third quarter capped off with a Ranz Unisa euro step layup to for a 57-53 lead.

Momentum on DLSZ’s side, the Junior Archers started off the final quarter with an 11-4 run led by effective big man John Quimado’s short stabs.\n After Omer’s basket to give the Archer’s their biggest lead at 68-59, the Junior Archers went cold in the last four minutes as the Junior\n Warriors waxed hot for a 15-2 run with 1:16 remaining. Though Reynold Tupas missed two free throws on penalty shots, the Junior Archers\n defense sustained by forcing a 24-second shot clock violation against UE. DLSZ swung the ball perfectly from side to side as Ranz Unisa\n knocked down an open three pointer to trail 74-73. Defense yet again held for DLSZ as they forced UE’s Naz San Juan to a traveling violation\n with just 23.1 ticks left. Kean Baclaan then received the ball and drove right to the basket only to be blocked by the big men of UE forcing\n DLSZ to foul. On a give and go inbound play, Kean Baclaan stole the ball from Owen Calimag as he passed the ball to Reynold Tupas. Tupas,\n ahead of the pack, was fouled by UE’s Jann Cruz with just 8.1 seconds remaining.

Reynold Tupas failed to convert on the pair of free throws but John Quimado snatched the offensive board. Quimado, deep under the basket, missed\n two attempts as Tupas tipped the ball to Kobe Dalisay for a corner triple that hit the front rim. With the most crucial tip of the game,\n Tupas tapped the ball with his fingers to Ranz Unisa with just 1.1 seconds who had the presence of mind to turn around and nail the basket\n just as the buzzer sounded.

“First game winner ko yun. Di ko ineexpect na mapapasok yun. Siguro pinanalo kami ni Lord. Thankful ako kay Lord.”, said the guard from Muntinlupa.\n He also attributed the team’s attitude to never give up. “Sa team effort din puso lang talaga nagdala kasi hindi kami sumuko hanggang sa\n dulo.”

\n

Kean Baclaan led all scorers with 24 points while earning 2 steals. Ranz Unisa supported with 15 markers and 5 rebounds. Undersized big man\n was a monster on the glass with 19 boards while scoring 6 points. John Quimado had an all-around game with 6 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists,\n and a block. After being held scoreless in the first 2 games, Pauloh Villarin netted 5 points – all in the first quarter.

Jann Cruz and Vehnjamin Maximo topscored for UE with 12 points apiece.

\n

The DLSZ Junior Archers improved immensely in terms of taking care of the ball. The squad committed just 10 turnovers as compared to 29 against\n Ateneo. The coaching staff lauded the players’ efforts to never let down and classified this outing as a “Character game”.

\n

The DLSZ Junior Archers will have another task ahead this Saturday (November 23) at Paco Arena as they face defending champions NU Bullpups.\n Game starts at 9am.
