Growling Tigers slowly climbing the ladder

Sunday, 9 September 2007 9 Comments

Coach Pido Jarencio post game interview:

The Falcons thought they are always in a scrimmage. They would start really strong, even outscoring their opponent. But after awhile, they’d get lost in the game and bury themselves in double-digit deficits until time expires.

The Falcons and the Growling Tigers fought bumper to bumper ending the first quarter tied at 16. However, UST’s consistency overwhelmed Adamson, 74-62, to get win no. 8 at the Araneta Coliseum last September 9.

The Growling Tigers started to move forward in the second quarter that ended with UST on top by eight, 32-24.

Francis Allera nailed a three-pointer with 58.3 left in the third quarter to increase their lead to twelve, 49-37. UST maintained an 11-point advantage, 50-39, after three quarters.

UST sparked a 7-0 run with 9:08 minutes in the clock that put UST on top by fourteen, 57-43. The yellow shirts remained in control all through out the game for a 74-62 finish.

Meanwhile, Coach Pido Jarencio thinks it is too early to talk about the final four.

“Ang importante manalo kami sa next game naming tapos saka na lang iisipin ‘ung standing,� he said.

  • The Dont Mind says:

    Dont mind me

    BUT it is possible for UST to have the #2 spot.

    But there are a few conditions.

    DLSU loses vs. UE

    NU wins vs ADMU

    and UST wins over FEU

    with the three way tie, the quotient system would go into play.

    If we (my barkada) calculated it right,
    the quotient for the three schools would be

    UST +13
    ADMU -7
    DLSU -8

    but then again we’re not that sure of our calculations. feel free to adjust :)

  • nutcase says:

    hmmm… the possibility of ADMU losing to NU is slim but is not impossible. But I hope DLSU wins over UE, because I dont like the “Step-ladder” format.

  • stewie says:

    the don’t mind,

    if you’re going to do some calculations with conditions, might as well consider the probabilities (based on past games performances) on your conditions. for example,

    ADMU vs NU – the probability ADMU wins is probably at 80% or even 90%

    DLSU vs UE – 60-40 in favor of UE

    UST vs FEU – 50-50 with slight edge on UST

    based on this, the scenario you’re trying to predict has a very slim chance of becoming true.

    i know it is possible for UST to be no. 2 but that is wishful thinking. predicting a final four finish for UST is more likely and believable.

  • yellow_we says:

    hey, should UST lose to FEU tomorrow, is UST out in the FInal Four since FEU beaten them twice in the elims or a playoff between the two will take place for the final spot? Please advise.. thanks! ;)

    Thanks for the article. I have generally noticed that almost all people are desperate to lose weight simply because wish to appear slim plus attractive. On the other hand, they do not often realize that there are other benefits for you to losing weight as well. Doctors claim that overweight people are afflicted with a variety of diseases that can be instantly attributed to their excess weight. The great thing is that people that are overweight in addition to suffering from diverse diseases can reduce the severity of their illnesses by simply losing weight. You’ll be able to see a gradual but noted improvement in health if even a negligible amount of weight loss is attained.

    One thing I would like to discuss is that fat burning plan fast can be performed by the appropriate diet and exercise. Ones size not merely affects appearance, but also the complete quality of life. Self-esteem, major depression, health risks, and physical capabilities are affected in excess weight. It is possible to make everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a condition may be the root cause. While too much food instead of enough workout are usually guilty, common health conditions and key prescriptions might greatly increase size. Thx for your post here.

    I realized more a new challenge on this weight reduction issue. One particular issue is that good nutrition is extremely vital while dieting. A massive reduction in junk food, sugary foods, fried foods, sugary foods, red meat, and white flour products may be necessary. Keeping wastes parasites, and wastes may prevent ambitions for fat-loss. While specific drugs briefly solve the condition, the unpleasant side effects aren’t worth it, they usually never offer you more than a short-lived solution. This is a known proven fact that 95% of diet plans fail. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this blog site.

    Thanks for the suggestions shared on your blog. Another thing I would like to talk about is that weight-loss is not information on going on a dietary fads and trying to shed as much weight as you can in a set period of time. The most effective way to shed pounds is by using it bit by bit and right after some basic ideas which can assist you to make the most from your attempt to slim down. You may be aware and be following some tips, although reinforcing expertise never affects.

    I believe avoiding ready-made foods is the first step to be able to lose weight. They could taste great, but highly processed foods have got very little vitamins and minerals, making you take more only to have enough energy to get through the day. If you’re constantly eating these foods, converting to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more energy while feeding on less. Good blog post.
