Second half blitz lifts Ateneo over San Beda

THE RED Lions came in strong, but the Blue Eagles proved to be stronger.

Ateneo de Manila University leaned on a second half explosion to post an impressive 84-73 win over San Beda College in the first game of opening day action at the FilOil Flying V Tanduay Preseason Invitational at the Arena in San Juan.

Eric Salamat fired two consecutive three pointers in the four-minute mark of the third period to lead the Blue Eagles’ rally against the Mendiola five, which led by as many as 11 points in the first half.

Indeed, it was a tale of two halves, with San Beda owning the first. Sudan Daniel and Jake Pascual joined hands in a critical second quarter push, while Borgie Hermida’s breakaway lay-up with under 10 seconds gave the Red Lions their 11-point halftime edge.

Ateneo coach Norman Black said his squad’s nine three-point shots and 16 assists in the second half helped them bounce back in the game. The Blue and White also committed 10 less turnovers in the last 20 minutes after coughing up the ball 19 times in the first half alone. Black said his boys were not in good condition when the game started. “The goal [this summer] is to be in better condition to play better basketball,” he added.

But the collective efforts of Salamat, Nico Salva, Emman Monfort, Ryan Buenafe, rookie Jason Escueta and Chris de Chavez helped Ateneo maintain its hold on the game until the end. Salva was adjudged the game’s best player with 16 points and nine rebounds.

A short opening ceremony welcoming the 17 participating teams preceded the game.

The scores:

Ateneo 84 – Monfort 16, Salva 16, Salamat 12, Escueta 10, de Chavez 10, Golla 5, Austria 4, Long 4, Buenafe 3, Gonzaga 2, Tiongson 2, Chua 0, Erram 0.

San Beda 73 – Dela Rosa 14, Lanete 12, Marcelo 12, Daniel 11, J. Pascual 5, A. Semerad 5, Hermida 4, Caram 2, Mendoza 2, K. Pascual 2, D. Semerad 2, Mendoza 2.

Quarter scores: 15-19, 32-43, 60-57, 84-73.

    Go Ateneo!!
    One Big Fight!!

    San Beda, hanggang laki lang!!
    Walang composure!!

  • KFC Krushies says:

    BTW, sinung nanalo?
    Baste, or JRU.
    My educated guess will be the Golden Stags, mainly because the Heavy Bombers lost more key materials than the Stags.

  • Enderun says:

    Guys, its too early pa sabihin kung sino mapupunta sa finals… malay nyo ung di inaasahan ang mkapasok… tska yung adidas-beda issue na yan stop na..wala nmn mangyayari kahit magsagutan pa kayo kasi wala naman sa 2 parties ang magpapatalo…syempre sagutan parin yan… kaya STOP na please? di ba basketball ang usapan dto???

    Ok? at ung mga PIKON, FEELING MATALINO, MAYAYABANG, HAMBOG, MANLALAIT dyan… at kung anu-ano pang anek anek… magsitigil na nga kayo!

    HIHIGUPIN kayo ng LUPA! bleh!

  • KFC Krushies says:

    Oo nga pala. Noticed Manny V. Pangilinan was in blue, And not a single red in his outfit?
    Wonder what this proves……
    Hehehe.

  • sayona says:

    KFC Krushies,

    sa inyo na lang si MVP sige. kayo na din ang pinakamagagaling sa lahat. walang composure ang SBC nag collapse nung endgame. si monfort na ang pinakagwapong player pati na rin si salamat sige lahat ng sa inyo gwapo at magagaling. ok ka na satisfied ka?

  • Junior Tubero says:

    baka may bagong sinusuportahang student athlete si MVP sa ateneo. :D wala na si chris tiu eh.

  • Matt says:

    Talaga naman o, ka aga pa e may gusto nang mag flamebait. KFC, sisiw ka pa lang!!

  • Calling it as it is says:

    Guys, please ignore people like KFC. I think he is just doing this to make Ateneo look bad. I dare say that he is just posing to be an atenean. If he is, in fact an atenean, then his attitude is quite unbecoming of a real Atenean.

    Even though Ateneo won, I still think that they are far from a good team. San Beda on the other hand have some promising big guys.

    Just my two cents

  • What's that? says:

    What? Nag-level 3 ba sila? Level 2 na lang ngayon? Mas mataas pala ang JRU na level 3.

  • yosi muna tayo says:

    Ayaw ko na sa Ateneo puro HAKOT! Basketball Mercenaries!

  • medyo tahimik ang bedan ngayon at naubusan ng hangin dahil talunan kahapon. pusta ang sisi nanaman ng mga yan kay coach frankie. pero kilig na kilig to the bones ang mga bedans kahapon laban sa ateneo.

  • argh says:

    “nine three-point shots and 16 assists in the second half helped them bounce back in the game.” – black
    admittedly it was thanks to frankie’s zone defense.. yipee talaga! bwset!

  • argh says:

    Red cubs talaga Red lions killer time and again

  • Ka Tropa Precious says:

    YAHOOO

    GO ATENEO PARA BALIK NAKARAANG LABAN SA MGA BEDISTA YAN!!!!

  • PP says:

    Taeneo and San Beda = Sister Teams

    Just like watching Ginebra at San Miguel hahaha

  • Exskulliber says:

    bat wla si Art Dela Crtuz?

  • out of the blue says:

    @exskulliber: art de la cruz jr is currently participating in his high school’s palarong pambansa campaign…

    kudos to ateneo for showing composure down the stretch… however, i agree with the real ateneans on this thread… ateneo looks far from being competitive; most of its players look like they were hogging the lines at krispy kreme…

  • out of the blue says:

    can’t wait for capacio and banal (both are in the under 18 youth team) to take their place in the admu line-up… however, knowing coach norman’s penchant for placing some of his recruits in team b, they will likely sit out the year practicing with team glory be para at least pagdating ng 2nd year nila they will be more seasoned and game-ready…

    ONE BIG FIGHT!

  • Milo96 says:

    Ateneo and San Beda are not sister teams. Ateneo and San Beda were in fact more bitter rivals in the NCAA than ADMU and DLSU.

    Having common alumni does not make the two teams siblings. In that case, UP and Ateneo are more siblings.

    Those who insist that the two teams are sisters are naively thinking that because of MVP the two teams become siblings. Having common Godfathers never make erstwhile unrelated kids siblings.

    Rather, due to the common Jesuit roots, all the Ateneo and Xavier schools are siblings. Much like all schools under the La Sallian brothers are siblings.

  • KFC Krushies says:

    @ out of the blue,
    Di ba si Erik Salamat lang ang graduating ngayun? And definitely, ang kapalit niya ay walang iba kung hindi si KEIFER RAVENA.
    Walang lugar sina Capacio at Banal sa team….

  • crab & crap si KFC KRUSHIES says:

    bago mo siraan bro ung ibang school alamin
    mo muna ung history ng basketball or ncaa at uaap ok?

    nico salva is from san beda hs, i can’t imagine
    na isang tga beda din un isang reason kung bakit
    nanalo admu, and isa pa c art dela cruz..

    i see a big future for him.. sana lang wag mapunta
    sa admu sina roldan sara, baser amer..sana

  • deadonarrivalmode says:

    SAWANG SAWA NA KO SA ATENEO-SAN BEDA NA YAN!

    IBAHIN NYO NAMAN USAPAN! >:)

    HEHE…

  • KFC Krushies says:

    Wow, pikon.
    Hina mo naman brod, sobra kang affected.
    Naiinis lang ako sa physicality nang Red Lions kahapon. Nabwiset ako kay Dave Marcelo, at iyung mga nanggugulpi kay Emman Monfort. I saw a lot of closed fists plays by the Red Lions.
    At hindi ko lang talaga ma take yun.

    So kung hindi kayang gumanti nang mga Blue Eagles, ako na lang! Pero hanggagng ganito lang. Wala pa ngang magiging effect ito eh.

  • KFC Krushies says:

    @ dead on arrival mode,

  • KFC Krushies says:

    @ Crab & Crap,
    I doubt kung mareretain niyo sina Baser Amer at Roldan Sara. Anung pangalan nung nasa UP, Carlo Gomez ba yun. I’m pretty sure ganun din ang mangyayari sa dalawang yun kung magstay sila.

    The thing is, to us Ateneans, we don’t care how ugly or good looking our players are. What’s important is that they bring a good-looking team record and statistics.

    If you Bedans think that looks are so important to you, then this just proves the Bedan stereotype: HOMOSEXUALS.

    @Milo96

    Well the only school who thinks that Ateneo and San Beda are sister schools is just San Beda. You know how pathetic they are in trying to cling on other institutions with good branding.

    @deadonarrival mode

    The article is a writeup about yesterday’s Ateneo-San Beda game. Baka lang hindi mo alam.

    @val-ADAMSON

    Wrong thread.

  • wye says:

    no surprise here…ateneo looks as dangerous and as potent as ever…norman black is now the best coach in the collegiate ranks (thanks to franz’s decision) and he knows how to keep his boys hungry and in shape. san beda was simply overwhelmed but they too are still a powerhouse team. baka kulang lang sa practice pa.
    btw, san na napunta si saret? i thought sa ateneo sya. tsaka san galing si de chavez and escueta? both are not highly touted rookies but looked rock solid.

  • dabaw eegol says:

    Chris De Chavez was already on the ADMU team last year. He studied HS in Benedictine International in QC, together with Clark Bautista of UST. Jason “Jumbo” Escueta is a Fil-Am who had to take 2 years’ residency …

  • baste says:

    saksakan nalang.

  • emeka says:

    SBC should change it’s coach. he is the weakest link on the team.

  • guest says:

    Ang galing ng basketball IQ ng Ateneo plus nandun parin yung confidence nila kahit lamang ng 11 pts SBC after 2 quarters. While I think mas atheletic ang SBC players at medyo out of shape ang Ateneo, ibang klase ball rotation ng Ateneo. Magugulat ka nalang, may assist na pala tapus shoot!

    Not to say na bopol ang mga Red Lions. In fairness, maganda execution ng plays nila. Yun lang nga, they weren’t able to improvise nung nabasa na ng Ateneo yung offense nila…one good case where IQ beats atheleticism…at least for this game.

    Sayang, mas kumpleto sana kung hindi injured si Oping but maganda pinakita ni Escueta at de Chavez.

  • KFC Krushies says:

    @ Emeke,
    Couldn’t agree more, man, couldn’t agree more.

    @ Wye,
    Kinakalawang pa nga eh, hehehe.

    But I really have to air my concern about Ryan Buenafe. He just creates too much turn overs and gets blocked too much. IN OTHER WORDS, HE’S GETTING TOO PREDICTABLE.

    @ guest,
    Oh yes man. The Blue Eagles frontline know they cant out jump the Red Lions frontline, so what they do is they tap the ball to a waiting teammate.

    THAT’S PLAY OVER POWER, BABY, YEAH!!!

  • Turd says:

    ang taba ni buenafe. if his work ethic ever matches his skill, he’ll be a uaap mythical 5. even mvp. but he’s far from it today. he’s slower, sloppier, and has less jump. sayang ka bata kung di mo aayusin. konting disiplina lang sa lamon at mas maraming cardio

  • out of the blue says:

    @kfc krushies

    eric salamat looks like the only one who’ll be leaving next year but ael banal and capacio have already said that they’ll be in admu…

    there is a glut of talent in the admu stable and i think that’s one good problem to have… i think team b is competitive enough to be included in the uaap…

    @wye
    joshua saret has been included in the feu line-up.

  • mengelberg says:

    Watch near the end of this video and see your coach in action:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MslAtWQF74s

    He told Sudan “that’s all you can say, I’m sorry?” Then he turns to Caram and just lambasts him about his execution. He then proceeded to waste around 8 seconds saying nothing but just glaring at his players instead of talking strategy. Perhaps he has the right to get mad at certain players but a good coach would reserve this after the game. During the game, the coach’s job is to provide confidence and talk strategy for the next play and not waste a timeout shouting at his players. This dude does not have the temperament to be a coach. He does not have the composure and I doubt if he is able to inspire his players to play hard for him. It is time for san beda to get a real coach. I feel bad for the beda players and fans.

  • the best thing that happened during the fil-oil opening is the tribute to coach ato badolato… kudos to the man.

  • sally says:

    frankie lim is a poor excuse for a coach. i think he’s the worst coach ever that san beda has. mahina ulo ni kalbo when it comes to coaching. if alas is the coach of sbc. then sbc is the team to beat.

  • Jumanji says:

    Capacio of dlsz ba ang nrecruit ng admu?

  • simonsmug says:

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNN……

    *nyap*-*nyap*-*nyap*

  • Tanggalin si Lim!!! says:

    I agree with mengelberg. Sobrang lakas ng San Beda players, di lang nagagamit ng tama. Sobrang poor ng mga strategy ni Lim kalbo. Malaki, malakas, mabilis, magaling yung mga players pero pag pinagsama-sama, parang walang unity. Bibihira lang yung nakikita kong magandang play, ang dali pang basahin ng kada galaw nila.

  • Jumanji says:

    Dapat ibalik ng beda si koy banal or kht sinong coach,bsta dpt palitan na nla c Lim.. kung pano p sya mag-coach,nawawala ang kumpyansa ng mga players,pahiyain mo p sa harap ng camera..sayang ang lakas ng team nila..

  • shane says:

    pag nag laban ang 2010 red lions vs. AUF mag mumukang seniors vs midgets ang laban. ha ha ha. center ng auf na si carney 6’3 lang.
