Sudan’s triple-double reminds everybody why he’s called ‘Superman’

Wednesday, 28 July 2010 50 Comments

“MONSTER game for Sudan,” said the San Beda College Red Lions’ Head Coach Frankie Lim.

“We just hope that he plays like that every game.”

Second-year center, Sudan Daniel recorded his first NCAA career triple-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocks as his team dominated the University of Perpetual Help System Dalta Altas, 101-77 last Wednesday, July 28, 2010 at the Arena in San Juan City. It was the 5th straight win for the Red Lions in the 86th season of the NCAA.

Garvo Lanete ignited an early San Beda run in the first quarter by scoring 7 points. In the second quarter, rookie Jaypee Mendoza took over by scoring 11. By the end of the first half, the Mendiola five have built themselves a huge 20-point lead.

After a quiet first twenty minutes of play, Perpetual’s Jett Vidal came alive in the second half by hitting three, three-point baskets in the third quarter. He would go on to duplicate that feat in the final period, but San Beda’s defense and fastbreak attack more than negated his effort.

“I was afraid that they might come back. They put it low to 12 points and they just tried to stay close to us going into the fourth quarter. Na-prevent naman namin. At least my starters had a good rest,” said Lim.

All fifteen Red Lions saw action in the contest. San Beda’s bench was huge, outscoring the Altas’ starters 65-60. Former RP-Youth Under-18 National team member, Jaypee Mendoza led the Red Lions in scoring with 17 points.

“Very aggressive. He (Mendoza) was always a recipient to our fastbreak. Then we also had 30 assists. So, that means the ball is going around. We shared the ball. Unselfish kami, lumalabas. That’s nice to see,” said Lim.

With the victory, San Beda is not at the top of the team standings with a 5-0 win-loss card. Head Coach Frankie Lim was asked after the game if there was anything he would fear as his team goes along in the season.

“I’m afraid of injuries. If my players get hurt, you’ll never how long will it take them to recover and to be back in game shape. Most teams and most coaches will always be scared of injury,” revealed Lim.

The Altas are the only remaining team without a win as they have lost all their six games so far.

The NCAA games resume on Friday, July 30, 2010 at the Arena in San Juan City for what should be another very exciting afternoon of college hoops.  The Mapúa Institute of Technology Cardinals (2-2) face off against the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights (1-2) at 2:00 P.M. while the main game features the defending champions, San Sebastian College-Recoletos Golden Stags (4-0). Their undefeated record will be challenged by the streaking Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers (4-1) in their game which is scheduled at 4:00 P.M. The games will be covered live by ABS-CBN Sports and broadcast over Studio 23.

The scores:

San Beda 101 – Mendoza 17, Daniel 16, Lanete 16, J. Pascual 11, Villahermosa 8, de la Rosa 6, K. Pascual 6, A. Semerad 5, Hermida 4, Marcelo 4, Moralde 4, Lim 2, Sorela 2, Caram 0, D. Semerad 0.

Perpetual Help 77 – Vidal 21, Allen 12, Danganan 12, Alano 8, Sumera 8, Ynion 7, Arboleda 7, Elopre 2, Jolangcob 0, Asuncion 0, Sison 0, Kintanar 0.

Quarter scoring: 22-13, 50-30, 76-51, 101-77.

    if you think it aint mah time, it’s because your watch is broken -sudan

  • Garvo-man says:

    10 blocks?whew. It’s like Sudan’s swatting every shot while sitting on top of the rim.

  • lets-run says:

    next game…

  • Huh? says:

    Yeah, right!

  • San Mateo Laker says:

    Really? You think last year’s championship game was fixed? I think the Refs just allowed the boys to “play”.

    And oh, you’re Superman CHOKED!!!
    BIG TIME!!!!

    Did you see his freaking face during the crucial stages of that game? It’s like, AAAAAHH!!! GET ME OUTTA HERE!!!

    But that was last year. Hopefully, nagbago na.

    • red guard says:

      @san mateo laker
      what’s not “playing” are phantom fouls on one team coupled with a inability to see fouls the other way..

      Ask the feu tams what happened in the last fil oil finals..

    • Hellboy says:


      Choked? You’re living in the past. The guy just had a TRIPLE-DOUBLE.

      I’m sorry if your players (from your team) doesn’t have this recogntion (this season) yet…



      • Jaded says:

        Little Boy, I was referring to last year’s championship game, not this game. And little boy, I said something positive. And Little Boy, Sudan, all 6’8 of him did choke big time!

        Just facts, Little Boy.

        • fried chicken says:

          yup he choked alright and that was last season. Probably he was disgusted about the unfair calls of those bastard refs. Anyways he learned a lot from last year. He has got to assert himself more and play wise and cool. It’s not all about those fancy jams in your face but he has gotta move well like lebron or kobe.

  • mike says:

    Hi Fried Chicken,

    It’s most likely due to Boris Aldeguers’ system. Unlike last season, Elopre and Ynion do not get many touches. Vidal and Allen are the primary recipients of the system.

  • hahaha says:

    sana next time na tambak na, wag na gamitin si sudan. di na makahabol tuloy yung kalaban. midway pa lang ng 2nd qtr pinatay ko na yung tv kasi alam ko na results.

    • fried chicken says:

      yeah it was an overkill, coach Lim should have fielded in the other tall players for more good exposure.

  • Easy Boy says:

    He used all 15 players.

    • fried chicken says:

      yeah but what i mean is more time exposure of the other tall reserves who don’t really get quality playing time.

      • Red Comet says:

        I agree, Lim should have have played Sorela longer along with K. Pascual and the twins…play caram and mar at point.

  • redzone says:

    did they actually believe that that it was an honest championship series (last year)? did they expect a clean series from a jueteng financer?

    • Red Comet says:

      Look at Ronald Pascual’s benefactor in the article here…a Pineda…do you think he will leave any stone unturned for his “finds” to melt away. I don’t think so. Its not to belittle the skills of the Beast and Pascual, its the lord whom I am very concerned about.

  • bomberista says:

    ano ba yan? di pa rin kayo nakapag move on? past is past. ika nga ng metro pacific investments, “let’s move forward”!

  • tupangusa says:

    dami pa rin turnovers ng RL..!

  • vaunted says:

    i think they are just being vigilant.. because there is a high probability that last year’s jueteng pay-up will repeat itself. history repeats itself right? hahaha gud luk and tough luk!

  • TigeGrrr! says:

    Waith till Superman meets Abueva, the Kryptonite man. Lalambot yan.

  • big_red_machine says:

    where is roldan sara? hnd ba xa npunta sa team a ng beda?

    • Dragon Fly says:

      Dan Sara is part of the RP Under-18 team preparing for the 2010 SEABA and FIBA-Asia Under-18 Championships. As to where hs is studying right now, some say he is now with Team B of DLSU.

      • fried chicken says:

        wala even our own boys in high school hindi maligawan ng maigi ng seniors and now he is La Salle tapos team B pa.

        • big_red_machine says:

          aww…dme nasayang na player ah..even baser amer inaasahan
          ko na hnd sa beda mpunta yan..gnda offer ng admu haha

          • red guard says:

            baser to big blue..dont think so..RLs know they need him..villahermosa most likely gone after next year (he played 2 or 3 years in Cebu already) and caram perhaps as well..

            besides will Black still be big blue’s coach next year?..i heard this could be his swan song..

        • Dragon Fly says:

          The reason why Sara is on Team B is because he will be concentrating on his Under-18 team stint for this year like what Joseph Marata, Joel Tolentino and Gab Banal did in 2008 before finally suiting up for the Green Archers last year.

          • itlog says:

            baser to ateneo? will mvp even allow that? probably if mvp dont trust ateneo to win it all next year.. san beda already has promising guards anyway (minus lim). still i will feel bad if baser will go to ateneo. it just doesnt feel right.

  • itlog says:

    i am not surprised that arthur dela cruz went to ateneo. he will never have the chance to flourish in the RLs because we’re stacked with very good bigs -plus black is good in developing bigs.

    baser on the other hand is a different story. im crossing fingers that he wont go else where (ateneo). i hope the boosters make sure baser’s well taken care of.

  • RED says:

    actually, there is already a buzz that baser will go to ateneo together with ravena and slaughter. salamat is graduating next year. Long has two more years. MOnfort will be left to man the point. may be that is the reason why ateneo is courting Baser to wear the Blue instead of the Red uniform. Ateneo will have a talented team next year.

    • fried chicken says:

      Crazy thing is why not merge UAAP and NCAA so we won’t have any trouble with players transferring to other schools anymore. To each his own just taking care of the high school players ready for transfer to the seniors when the time comes.Anyway there are only a few teams really in the UAAP, if the two merge the more the merrier…and so we will also know who’s the best!

      • Hellboy says:

        masarap isipin pero mukhang malabo. If ever man naisip nila yun, ano naman ang name ng liga? UAAP o NCAA?

      • chellotte8 says:

        hindi nila papayagang magmerge, at tuluyang mapigilan ang transfer ng mga players.

        E sa NCAA jrs lang nmn kumukuha ang UAAP srs ng players db?

        pag nagmerge na yan, e san na sila kukuha ng players…?

  • Red Pride says:

    ** Amer will stay in the DEN. I’m sure of it.

  • itlog says:

    how sure are you?

  • itlog says:


    that’s a stretch. we already have pre-season leagues with the same intention. what u try to suggest is not only merge ncaa and uaap but to destroy it as well. we are talking of almost 100 years of bball heritage.

    anyway san beda already has an invite from uaap so why not join them instead? ncaa is sbc’s home but we must protect our interest as well.

  • bedaonuaap? says:

    parang di na lilipat ang beda sa uaap, di naman sila univ. besides ncaa is their home.

    maganda ba yung jacket ng beda made by adidas? wer can i buy it?

    • A BEDAN says:

      adidas Gateway.. by d way AUG. 18(wed) san beda vs baste, very exciting game to watch!! GO SAN BEDA FIGHT!


    • fishball says:

      you may find san beda merchndise in most adidas stores. check it out bro. i bought my white jacket at trinoma.

    • SBU-on-2013 says:

      oo dude. sa 2013 ang year na mgiging university sila at sasali sa UAAP. It will be good dahil mas competitive don. Dito kasi sa NCAA di alam kung sino mggng final 4, instead alam na agad ang mgllban sa finals or mgcha2mpion. Hope may point ako. hehe. peace. =)

  • TigeGrrr! says:

    I heard SBC’s status was downgraded to level II kaya na delay maging university. I wonder if this is true. Maybe that’s the reason why the transfer to UAAP has fizzled out.

  • Mas magaling pa nga c anjo kesa kay MAR pero mar had a lot of time playing..

  • chellotte8 says:

    i think San Beda is good enough either way.

    And they can field San Beda Alabang to NCAA if ever they decide to transfer.

  • Tax says:

    Everyone should get a black guy, then we can call ourselves National Collegiate African Association or University African Athletics of the Philippines. If we merge it we can have Philippine African Athletics League.

  • dyango says:


    May Team B ba ang La Salle aside from Benilde?
