TEMPERS flared and a Colegio de San Juan de Letran walkout gave San Beda College its third win in four games at the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Invitational Cup at the Arena in San Juan City last May 22.

Letran came out firing, racing to a 19-10 lead at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, Sudan Daniel ignited a rally by blocking a Raymond Almazan attempt. Jaypee Mendoza eventually tied the game at 24. At the 2:10 mark of the quarter, Franz Dysam was called for an unsportsmanlike foul on Borgie Hermida as he appeared to have put his foot under Hermida as he knocked down a three point basket to give San Beda the lead, 32-31. Hermida went on to knock in 2 technical free-throws to put San Beda up by three, 34-31.

Frustration began to set in on the minds of the Knights, and their game showed it, as it began to slip away as the Red Lions took a ten-point, 47-37 lead after back-to-back three pointers by Garvo Lanete. Letran responded with a 7-0 run, but an Anthony Semerad triple put the San Beda lead back to six, 50-44. The Knights turned the ball over on the next possession and the Red Lions were up and running.

Anthony Semerad went up for a fastbreak lay-up and was fouled by Kevin Alas who tried to draw a charge. It was the fifth and final foul of Kevin Alas and it occurred on the 6:22 mark of the third quarter.

As Alas walked to the bench, he held on to the basketball. Once he got close to his father, Letran head coach, Louie Alas, the long-time Letran coach, got the ball from his son, and threw it high in the air.

The referees slapped a warning on Alas, which apparently prompted San Beda coach Frankie Lim and assistant coach Ed Cordero to stand up and complain to the referee. In a jiffy, Alas, flanked by his players from the bench, fast approached Cordero. Cooler heads tried to pacify both squads, and in particular Alas and Cordero.

The referees ejected both Alas and Cordero from the playing court. Cordero quickly stood up and walked towards the locker room while Alas gathered his team in a huddle. After a few seconds, the entire Letran team walked out of the playing court.

After the game, the two tacticians had differing versions of the incident.

“When I complained to the referees about the warning, cause I wanted them to give me a technical foul, I saw Ed uttering the word, ‘EXPLETIVE’ to me,” Alas narrated in Filipino. “Sa akin siya nakatingin eh. Ang tanong, bakit siya nag-gaganoong salita sa akin. Hindi ko naman matatanggap yun. Lalaki rin naman tayo. Sanay kasi sila na nambubully ng ibang coaching staff. Iba kami. So umalis kami dahil sa tawag nung referee [his ejection]. Hopefully, though, tapos na ito. I take full responsibility for the incident.”

“He is a liar. What happened was he threw the ball high up in the air. So, I complained to the referee and when he saw me complaining, he pointed at me. Ngumarat siya sa akin. Hindi ko naman puwedeng palampasin yun. I am sorry. I should have kept my cool. But, that is what happened,” explained Cordero.

The referees finished all of Letran’s timeots but the Knights did not come out. Thus, San Beda won the game, officially, 20-0.

The scores (at the 6:22 mark of the third quarter):

San Beda 53 – Lanete 12, Mendoza 9, Marcelo 7, Hermida 6, dela Rosa 4, Daniel 4, J. Pascual 4, A. Semerad 3, K. Pascual 2, D. Semerad 2, Caram 0.

Letran 44 – Cortes 12, Dysam 8, K. Alas 6, Espiritu 4, Belorio 4, Belencion 3, Taplah 1, Almazan 1, J. Alas 0, Rodil 0.

Quarter scores: 12-19, 38-33, 53-44.

    ano ba naman yan.. old school ncaa parin. haha.. sana naman tapusin ung game.

  • Jumpman says:

    I think it was Garvo Lanete that got fouled by Kevin Alas.

  • ilmer says:

    yung magkapatid na alas ang aangas lalo na yung bakulaw. ang hilig makisawsaw sa away ng iba. mga feeling siga ang mga loko. mana sa tatay. hahaha

    san kayo makakakita ng team na nagwalkout pero sumilip pa at nanood ng juniors game ng saglit? kung ako magwawalkout, umalis ka na lang ng venue at wala nang bihis-bihis pa.

  • cyrus says:

    i saw the game and i am a fan of san beda but i gotta say this ed cordero acted poorly there’s no reason for him to shout profanities to other coaching staff

  • LOL says:

    walang kwenta talaga ang dalawang universities na yan. puro “rambol” ang alam. no breeding whatsoever. kaya dapat never ipasali sa uaap yan e. mga skwating.

  • Galahad says:

    @cyrus,

    who the hell brought ed cordero to the NCAA anyway? why don’t they let the referees do their job? ed cordero needs to watch himself during the san beda letran match this season. he should look around him especially those wearing red and blue.

  • Little John says:

    @ilmer,

    hindi ko alam na may rules pala tungkol sa team na nag-walk out. saan mo naman napulot itong rules na ito? sa iyong guni-guni. mga bedista nga naman ano!

  • FEU says:

    IM NOT A AVID FAN OF BOTH TEAM. I DECIDED TO WATCHED BEDA LETRAN AFTER OUR GAME (IT LOOK LIKE INTERESTING).. I REALLY SAW WHAT HAPPEN, ONE OF THE COACH OF BEDA MURMURS WHILE POINTING OUT THE COUCH OF LETRAN (PAULIT ULIT)..THEN THE COACH OF LETRAN SAW IT, MAYBE DUE TO FRUSTRATION IN FASTBREAK, NAPIKON UNG COACH NG LETRAN SA NAKITA NYA.. BINABA NG COACH NG BEDA UNG GLASS OF WATER TAPOS HINAMON UNG COACH NG LETRAN.. NAKITA ITO NG PLAYERS NG LETRAN, UNANG LUMAPIT SI KEVIN, TAPOS UNG ISA PA NYANG KAPATID.. START NA NG BRAWL. SABAY WALK OUT NG PLAYERS AT CROWD NG LETRAN..

  • red says:

    Parang ang gulo naman ng statement na to:
    “When I complained to the referees about the warning, cause I wanted them to give me a technical foul, I saw Ed uttering the word, ‘EXPLETIVE’ to me,” Alas narrated in Filipino.

    Ano yun parang ang sinabi ni Alas dapat hindi warning ang binigay sa kanya? Dapat technical ang binigay sa kanya? Anong klase yun? Sya pa may gusto na matechnical sya instead of warning! Ang gulo nun ah!

  • alumina says:

    For me Alas must take his sportsmanship. Laro lang yan, he must act like a professional doing his job as a coach and Not taking actions due to his emotions. Parehas kayo ng former JRU Coach Vanguardia na pinag lalaruan ang emotion ng team kaya sila nagiging matigas din ang ulo sa court ng mga players.

  • RZ says:

    loser tlga Letran!

  • kaboom says:

    boom baby. lets see how the knights tame the koala bear.

  • kaboom says:

    boom baby. lets see how the knights tame the koala bear this coming ncaa season.

  • manong johnny says:

    sinong koala bear? yung whistleblower ng dayaan? aba’y dapat isalang yan sa senate inquiry.

  • Comet says:

    There was no rumble. The referees made sure of that, they stood at the middle of the opposing crowds.

    The only peculiar thing was Kevin Alas wanted to run off and attack anyone except that he was held back but when he was let lose by his team mates for a brief moment, he stood still, seemingly saying to himself “pigilan niyo ko” pero di naman pala kaya panindigan.

    Then the wife of Coach Alas, was almost at the Red Lions staring down at bench side (just behind the officials table) while Ed Cordero was a few feet away at the Red Lions side.

    I was wondering what she is doing there? What are you doing there if not begging for a fight yourself. You should have been beside your husband and not where you where. You should tame the men in your family for lack of sportsmanship. You should tell the men of your family to behave unless you all teach the same to the family and the team. Lady be a lady of grace for Pete’s sake!

    This is a sportsmanship development game, keep it decent.

    The question that begs an answer is why is Letran always roughhousing and when they get penalized they either get thrown out or worse walk out. How many times has Coach Alas been thrown out or penalized in most games with the Red Lions?

  • kaboom says:

    can’t wait to watch the LEtran Beda This coming NCaa season. boombaby. knights all the way.

  • the entire family acted like barbarians in yesterday’s game. they should be ashamed of themselves! from the father, mother and siblings they are all a disgrace! samahan mo pa ng war freak letran players! daming palusot ng SBC haters again, just admit that letran was outclassed, outsmarted by SBC in that game. ang laki ng ulo ni kevin. tama lang umalis sila lantonio and foronda sa knights because of the alas syndicate. lantio’s father is that time the coach of the squires.

  • exciting! says:

    cant wait for the letran vs baste game…..siguradong patayan yan!!!!! puro mga barumbado players nila kasama na rin bench and FAMILY MEMBERS! yahoo!!!!! free for all @ filoil! yan dapat ang theme. hindi badolato cup.

  • bendita says:

    magandang laban kung letran vs sigue sigue sputnik, letran vs OXO, letran vs bahala na gang (BNG), letran vs. Batang city jail(BCJ) choose your pick guys!!!

  • kaboom says:

    anjo latonio is just mere a scientific three point shooter. quality minute player. baby face assasin when he played during the beda letran championship.

  • wth? says:

    alas showed a poor character as a coach, father, leader. he should’ve thought twice before doing it. the entire letran bench was almost at the san beda side malapit dun sa parang line na hanggang dun ang coach ata yun. hindi magandang example si alas lalo sa mga anak niya.

    no doubt why his sons are like that. very funny though, yung banban na alas, yung matangkad, hinamon pa ng suntukan yung isang san beda fan, yung anak ni erap na nasa likod ng bench ng san beda.

  • RE POST says:

    Teams to beat this coming UAAP season 73:

    1.Ateneo
    2.UE
    3.FEU
    4.NU
    5.AdU
    6.DLSU
    7.UP
    8.UST

    >Ateneo possible will let Erram, Siarot, Escueta, and Dumrique IN the line-up.

    >UE have tall players like Sam Razon 6’5, Ortiz 6’9, Limpat? 6’4? uhm he just transferred this year,so definitely he’ll have his 1 year residency.

    >FEU will have Terrence Romeo, Mark Bringas, and hopefully Russell Escoto.

    >NU have 2 african players, and Keith Agovida.

    >AdU have Manyara,the african player and 2-3 rookies from the H.S program.

    >DLSU is under transition, questionable team, uhm A lot of blue chip players tried out for the team like (Roldan Sara, Tampus, DLSZ Players like Van Opstal, Elorde, Dela Paz, Capacio,Herrera, and JRU’s Sarett or Saret)

    >UP of course their favorite players like Mike Silungan, Lao. Alingko? one more year of residency. Some LSGH players tried out also in UP MBT.

    > UST is the underdog team this coming season, but they have good rookies from the HS program, like Cedric Labing-isa, Neypes, and Letran’s Glenn Khobuntin.

    Socrates Rivera is no longer with the UST MBT line-up for personal reasons. Dexter Rosales transferred to Fatima University Phoenix.

    @ BROADY

    HNDI PWEDE MAGING UNIVERSITY ANG LETRAN. OLDEST COLLEGE KASI ITO SA ASIA,.. MARAMING TUTOL DITO, HAWAK NA NG PILIPINAS ANG OLDEST UNIVERSITY AT COLLEGE..

    TIGANAN MO N LANG ANG PROFILE NG LETRAN, BAKA MAGING DREAM SCHOOL MO ITO.

  • Erap Estrada says:

    kasalanan ng refs yang lahat. kung tinawag nila ng technical si Alas, walang gulo.

  • Beda Bulok says:

    ang beda talag synonymous sa gulo tsk tsk tsk

  • @naSAN BEDA, kung wala Basketball? says:

    Nasan ang beda pag walang bball? 6 straight seasons ng champion ang sea lions sa swimming. Champion din sa table tennis (men’s), soft tennis at taekwondo. Di porket overall letran e kayo na magaling. Magyabang kayo pag talagang nakuha niyo lahat ng games. Volleyball, chess at lawn tennis lang naman kayo magaling e. Ang tanong…nasaan na ang bball niyo? lagi na lang bang magwawalkout? Karamihan naman ng tao ang focus basketball. Try mong magtanong kahit kanino, sino nagchampion sa NCAA? Panigurado sasabihin Baste, hindi Letran! Kaya nga ginawa inboundpass kasi maraming tao gusto bball LANG. Kung overall champion ang gusto mong topic para lang masabi mong Letran ang champion, eto website para sayo: http://www.ncaa.org.ph
    Ok? btw, congrats!hahaha
    ARRIBA LETSRUN!

  • broady says:

    @ skywalker

    Sige nga itranslate mo nga kasi sa google chrome nang malaman mo ang tunay na ibig sabihin. ^_^

  • skywalker says:

    @broady

    “Animo” is the Spanish expression for “courage”. The Spanish word animo also means spirit, energy, vitality, purpose and will.. So when we cheer, we use our expressions! We express it and not derive it.. Gets?

  • King Eagle says:

    The Animo originated from the Ateneo, it was an original used by the Ateneans way before the Bedans and Lasallians.

  • Galahad says:

    throwing the ball up in the air was a knee jerk reaction perhaps due to frustration. Did he throw it toward somebody else? did somebody get hurt when he threw that ball? did somebody die when alas threw that ball? now he was getting penalized for it whether it be a warning or a technical foul. At this time the issue was between alas and the referee. Ngayon bigla namang nagpupumilit maki-involve itong gunggong na si ed cordero. Who is he to demand a technical? is he a referee? he’s just a beda coach not even the head coach. beda should get this guy under control. when he got involved, then beda got involved. ang involvement niyo dahil diyan kay ed cordero. siya ang sisihin niyo. wala kayong pake kung ano ang itawag ng referees kay alas.

  • skywalker says:

    @King Eagle

    Eh di sa inyo na! Kayo na nauna!

    Im just reiterating the correct usage of the word “animo” regardless kung sino naunang gumamit…

  • San Beda" nanghahamon pero duwag naman" College says:

    we is prouds of our good-lookings assistant coach eddie cutie pie cordero. he is really the coach and not the balding guy lim. good for him for rushing to the referrees and demanded to give alias a technicals foul. we love you eddie boy corderoy!!!!

  • Utot Sabay Tae says:

    Ed Cordero is from UST, he just happens to be on the San Beda payroll as an assistant coach.

  • 2-1 LAKERS VS SUNS says:

    Ed Cordero is the former UAAP Commissioner and San Beda lead assistant coach.

  • Mike Abasolo says:

    I have to agree with King Eagle that the word Animo was originally used by Ateneo. San Beda then carried the battle cry and made it part of its heritage. As for the rest of the claims, its just share of voice and marketing thus hiding the real truth.

    And Galahad – once you throw the ball up, down or sideways constitutes a rule violation but we are missing the point. Every coach has a right to express/counsel their views. The officials should’ve took charge, implement the rules and restore order. If they acted accordingly, this wouldn’t happen.

  • Andrea Camille from FEU. says:

    And through it all, sarado ang mga bibig nang Letran Gallery, when their business is to make noise.

    I’m from FEU, and I know I have no right na makialam.

    Pero nakita ko ang nakita ko, narinig ko ang mga narinig ko.

  • naSAN BEDA, kung wala Basketball? says:

    @ andrea

    thanks for sharing the truth..

    , PURO TRASHTALK ANG BEDA, PART NG DIRTY TACTICS NILA YUN..

  • broady says:

    Ateneo pala nauna sa animo!

    E bakit ganun? Parang inaangkin ng mga bedista ang animo. Kahit saang forum ako magpunta pag may ganitong topic ang mga bedista laging sinasabi ginaya lang nila yan samin etc. etc. Tapos yun pala sila pala nanggaya!

    Buti pa Ateneo tahimik lang kahit na sila pala original ng Animo. That’s why I really admire Ateneo. They taught their students very good morals.

  • ^ ^ ^

    he he he, nag hanap pa ng kakampi si broady na supot, patuli ka muna hijo at mag hilod ka ng ma-itim mong singit!

  • broady says:

    HAHAHAHA!

    Again! Talaga naman ang mga bedista mahilig talaga sa mga usapang TITI! HAHAHAHA!

    O e bakit di mo sinagot yung tanong? Hindi naman pala inyo yung animo. Inaangkin niyo! Feeling! HAHAHA!

    ANIMO BAKLUSH! ^_^

  • yellow cab says:

    issue was already settled ages ago at gameface.ph the only issue to be settled is your very dark and oily singit. WTF! ever heard of soap and water? 26 yrs old already hindi pa binyagan??? :)

  • naSAN BEDA, kung wala basketball? says:

    @ BROADY

    HAYAAN MO NA..

    WAR FREAK TLAGA MGA BEDA, NAGHAHANAP LNG YAN NG AWAY..

    ANIMO BAKLUSH!

  • rudy hines says:

    this is so funny!!!! letsrun ang sumugod sa bench ng RL and nag dirty finger sa crowd, kasama pa si misis alas! konting kahihiyan naman! naghahanap ng away??? hay naku, instead ibahin mo name mo dito, mag hilod ka nalang ng singit mo!

  • Kimmy Dora says:

    the ncaa really pales in comparison compared to the uaap. at least sa uaap sportsmanship reigns supreme.

  • @ kimi dora

    sad but true. u cud see the behaviour of NCAA students vis-a-vis that of the UAAP ones, bar none. a bunch of insecure wannabees the latter. to think i belong to one of the ncaa teams which by longevity and tradition, should not play into the antics of students from some upstart schools whose claim to fame is basketball ONLY. for instance, there are at least 2 people from a school that if it weren’t for their joining the ncaa some 3 decades ago, would only be known for their church (an admirable one too, to be fair) and a long potential list of police characters.

    This basketball fanaticism is a funny business isn’t it?

    What a shame.

  • the “former” i meant.

  • too bad, their students does not live up to the prestige their church brings. tsk tsk

  • Might i add, as i was going through some of the filthy comments these so-called basketball experts were saying..they were claiming that one of the ncaa schools wouldn’t have made champion if it weren’t for their import. Don’t these people know that most national teams have “naturalized” players? All arab teams have them, a good number of european and south american teams have them. Even Russia, a traditional basketball power has one! It’s called GLOBALIZATION. They (our players)are given chances to learn from these imports as well as them learning from us. To insist on using all-filipino squads is a parochial, nay, provincial way of thinking.

    for several times, our national team insisted on using all-filipino. where did it get us?

    so please, so-called “basketball-experts” who claim their schools to be the greatest because they win with all-filipino players (although, i must say this is admirable albeit non-sustainable)…re-think your position…otherwise, mapapagiwanan kayo.

  • Lastly…has anyone looked at the NBA lately?…lol

    I rest my case.
