Adamson’s 2010 PCCL success continues, reach Finals

Tuesday, 30 November 2010 170 Comments

ALEX Nuyles picked the right game to explode.

After scoring just a combined 9 points in their previous two outings, Adamson head coach Leo Austria’s go-to-guy scored a game-high 15 points to lift his Falcons to victory over the De La Salle University Green Archers in their game last Tuesday, November 30, 2010 at the Fil-Oil Flying V Arena in San Juan City. The San Marcelino outfit knocked off the one-time tournament winners (2008) in the Final Four, ending their inspired 2010 Philippine Collegiate Champions League campaign.

De La Salle University has been playing minus starting forward, David Webb and Gab Banal, in their first two matchups tournament which were against the Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights and the San Beda College Red Lions. The Green Archers played spirited basketball to end San Beda’s win streak at 19 by upsetting them in the quarter-finals, 84-74.

The Green Archers once again opened the game with an active start, and led by 10 points at the end of the first period. But, the Falcons’ bench scoring tied the game at halftime as it outscored the entire La Salle team in the second period, 22-12. Nuyles, a third-year swingman and one of the most athletic players in all of collegiate basketball, did come off the bench in this particular game and did not disappoint.

Adamson has never made it to the PCCL Sweet 16 prior to this year. Last year, they got ousted in the Cebu Zonals via the quotient rule by the University of Cebu and the San Sebastian College-Recoletos de Cavite.

The Falcons will now continue their magical PCCL run as they enter the Finals against the defending champions of the tournament, the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles.

The Finals series is a best-of-three affair that will begin on Thursday, December 2, 2010 at the Ninoy Aquino Memorial Stadium.

Three games will be held on that day and will be aired live on Studio 23 courtesy of ABS-CBN Sports.

Here is the schedule of games:

    laban ng mga ibon to!

  • spider_fan says:

    Congrats Adamson. Congrats Uaap. Good job by DLSU. Atleast we are the ONLY team to beat San Beda this year (excluding pre-season/scrimmages/exhibitions).

    • Bedan says:

      Kudos also to La Salle! You deserve the win against us!


    • upstart says:

      one day fame archers.too bad,like the dodo bird, the dslu vs admu match up went the way of the sbc vs admu match up.

      its the falcons turn now.and i wouldnt bet on the eagles come finals, the falcons have been pretty sharp lately to include their unigames stint.

    “Matagal na namin gusto matalo yung Ateneo na yan” – Alex Nuyles

    Ateneo na yan pala ha. Gumalang nga kayo sa mga nakakataas sa inyo.

  • fau says:

    kaw nmn d kna mabiro… cge na nga, mapagmataas na tlaga kyo

  • tito says:

    although we fell short, the archers made it this far. good luck, falcons.


  • Doug says:

    just curious, what’s with the UST Tigercubs vs. Staglets game? Finals in juniors?

    • nvm says:

      Runners up sa uaap at ncaa juniors, respectively.

      Sa Sunday, ang unang game eh yong mga champs — eaglets at cubs. Ganda to, Ravena (kung maglalaro) vs yong mvp sa Ncaa jrs, ano na nga ba name?

    • Usteg says:

      Ano ito,kasi kahit sino manalo di naman masasabi, “third best” sila sa lahat nang high school teams, walang national exposure so hindi mai-claim na national title unlike the PCCL, dapat nationwide at kasali ibang high school teams kahit walang collegiate level like Xavier, Claret, Don Bosco, dami pang iba!

    • Usteg says:

      Tingin ko meaningless itong game na ito, parang ‘Battle for Third Best High School Basketball squad’ eh hindi naman national in scope, dapat isinali Xavier School, Don Bosco, Lourdes, Claret dami pang iba!

  • geric says:

    its all over for the ATENEO Blue Eagles.. this is a time for ADAMSON Soaring Falcons!!
    you got UAAP, we will grab the PCCL!

  • karen capina says:

    wow! laban ng mga birds, kampi ako sa mas malaking bird! mahilig pa naman ako sa BIRD!

  • geric says:

    UAAP vs UAAP!
    Eagles vs Falcons!
    A battle of the Giant Birds!
    Soar high Falcons!!

  • karen capina says:

    kasya mga birds nyo sa bibig ko! kasa pati mga itlog

  • karen capina says:

    ayoko yung bird ng import ng adamson, mukang puro libag

  • sakin kasya yung sa bulldog! eh yung sa the beast nga kasya sakin eh, bulldog pa??? ang liit naman nun.

  • go adamson!!!!!! go BIG BIRD!

  • wilderness says:

    the blue eagles started this tournament rusty and a little off-focus. maybe not much preparation and it was a long lay-off. but the past two games, they have increased the intensity. they have shown that they are not reliant on buenafe or on any single player; they are a complete team with strong guard play and a solid front-line.

    the falcons are playing very well and are well-coached. revelation this tournament is brondial who has augmented an already deep line-up. they too are a complete team BUT they have a hard time beating the Ateneo. not in pre-season tournaments though … only in the UAAP.

    basketball lovers believe this championship will be hard fought. heroes will emerge. I expect though the bigger bird to prevail if only due to the championship experience. interesting match-up: Austria vs. Austria again. but as i said, bilog ang bola.

    • Ora et Labora says:

      before the uaap season, a lot of good things were said about brondial. i think he was coming off an injury during the uaap season. he’s playing well now though.

  • Yeng says:

    YES!! go go Adamson!! proved again that you can beat ADMU again outside UAAP!

    • muralla22 says:

      galingan nyo adamson…..talunin nyo ateneo….nkksawa na kc…lge na lng admu,dlsu,,ue at feu ang lgeng nsa limelight….its your time 2 shine….go adamson!!!!mdme p nman ako frnds jan…

      • PG says:

        totoo nga ang kasabihang if you can’t beat em join em ano Letran? nakaka-awa ka kasi alam mong hanggang salita at empty threats lang kayo at hindi niyo magawang talunin ang Ateneo.

  • Yeng says:

    ADamson beat Ateneo in UNIgames.. now.. beat it in PCCL!!

    • Yeng says:

      ADamson beated Ateneo in UNIgames.. now.. beat it in PCCL!!

      • PG says:

        ang problema, sino bang may oras para dun? wala. kayo lang kasi tuwang-tuwa kayo na dun niyo lang kaya talunin ang team namin. on a side note, it’s B-E-A-T. not beated. tsk. shame. :)

  • 4peat says:

    This series has been ordained; it was inevitable!

  • yahoo says:

    namiss mo ako noh? b*ding ka talaga. yung boyfriend mong si bobby, iniwanan ka na. padalhan kita ng ice cream at mga dvd ha para medyo umayos ka.

  • 00 says:

    show your guts AdU, its time to kick back, grab the nationals and end the losing streak to ADMU… but surely ADMU will not falter…this will be a good fight

  • TEAM CAPTAIN says:





    • FlyHighBlueEagle says:

      Sorry Falcons, not even luck was on your side this year. Good job Blue Eagles for the consistency you’ve shown! Go for Three-peat in PCCL! Four-peat in the UAAP!

  • nvm says:

    di pa ata nanalo ang adu sa admu since time ni Duremses (sa uaap). At ang tinalo nila sa unigames, feu at di admu. Ang tumalo sa admu sa unigames ay nu na tumalo sa adu sa finals.

    sa elims ng uaap, close yong 2 games pero na sweep ng admu and adu. Sa semifinal four, tambak ang adu dahil kinabahan at na lunod sa pressure at crowd. Di masyadong ‘watched’ finals na to kaya siguro makaka isa na sa wakas ang adu. But then again, kung banderang kapos sila tulad ng dati, hand the trophy to Ateneo please.

    • TEAM CAPTAIN says:

      naks! updated! kahit hindi atenista! haha! haha! haha!
      tama ka NU na tumalo sa adamson, na tinalo ng mapua sa simula palang ng pccl, isa pang haha! haha! haha!

      hindi pala gaanong papanoorin ng tao ang finals!

      baka naman wala ka lang pampanood ng live?
      or baka miski tv nyo walang studio 23?
      haha! haha! haha!

    • yeng says:

      bakit hindi mo yata nabanggit na tinalo na ng ADamson ang Ateneo sa V-league last year lang before UAAP start. yung winning streak ng Ateneo sa Adamson ay sa UAAP lang! magbasa ka muna ha? bago mag comment! lol!

    • geric says:

      @nvn.. para mabasa mo kasi wala kang alam..

      Falcons Nip Blue Eagles On the Way to 3rd Place at Pre-Season Tournament..
      With the clock winding down, fans were jumping and roaring as the Adamson University Falcons rallied behind an unusual hero to defeat UAAP defending champions Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles in the quarterfinals of the 2010 FilOil-Flying V First Five Pre-season Invitationals at the FilOil-Flying V Arena in San Juan.
      According to Coach Austria, the last time the Falcons defeated the Blue Eagles was way back in the 2008 FilOil Tournament which was also a quarterfinal match. “This win was big for us and it is very good for our morale,” the veteran coach added.

      • PG says:

        gets niyo bang mga pipit ang ibig sabihin ng “PRE-SEASON TOURNAMENT GAME”? why, it means it’s an exhibition game. sad.

        • saba diha . says:

          bobits. .iba ang pre-season sa exhibition .. you can play exhibition game khit sa season mismo .. isa pa sa pre-game merong standings..

          • PG says:

            exhibition means a friendly. and what is pre-season games? they’re considered exhibition games. paliwigin po natin ang ating bokabularyo. napaghahalataan kung saang school ka galing. :)

          • saba diha . says:

            ahha. . so based on your explanation. . uaap is also considered exhibition game. coz friendly man lage cja . haha .

          • PG says:

            ows? hindi ako yung tipo na ipapamukha kung saang high school ako grumaduate dahil hindi ako ganon. at hindi pa ako graduate. eh ikaw? out of school ka na kasi kick out ka?

            mukha bang friendly ang UAAP games? nanood ka nga bang talaga? kasi hindi friendlies ang UAAP games. ang friendlies, exhibition games. eh ano ang pre-season tournaments? exhibition games. ano ulit ang exhibition games? friendlies.

          • Sebastian Recto says:

            pag kick out ba ko sa NU pwede ako ba ko pasok ng ateneo.

          • PG says:

            di naman nagmeet ever ang academics at San Sebastian, SR. diyan ka lang sa bangketa ha? babalik ako kasama yung mga leftovers dito.

          • yahoo says:

            @sebastian recto

            malayong hindi.

            pwede ka siguro mag grade school ulit sa FEU kung gusto mo para medyo kayanin mo

  • nvm says:

    At di papayagan ng anak na manalo ang tatay niya (austria)^^ Sa puso ng tatay, bilib siya sa basketball (at education) program ng ateneo over adamson kaya nga lahat ng anak niyang lalaki nagsimula sa prep (blue blooded lahat yan). May batang kapatid pa si Bacon sa Eaglet team. Let’s see if “the (other) son (also) rises”

  • mabuhay ang mga malalaking bird!!

  • migs says:

    Adamson has improved so much. Lester Alvarez and Alex Nuyles with Eric Camson…These three guys are some of the most talented Falcons I have ever seen…Congrats and hope you do well against Ateneo…

    As for DLSU, what a 2010 season…counted out by many at the start, doubted by skeptics during their mother league and faced tremendous challenges in the national championships…well, they managed to upset all those who didn’t think they’ll make it far. Hold your head high Archers…that was one heck of a college basketball season you had. best part is, you’ll get even better in the coming years. I have faith, the whole La Salle community has faith in you. Let’s work hard to get back on top. ANIMO LA SALLE!!! :)

  • maliit ang bird ni abueva!

  • pips. says:

    Haha! 2 bird ba? pwede na sila sa derby!! sabong na ‘to

  • muralla22 says:

    ano mga lasalista…..wla nman pla kayo sa falcons eh…chamba lng pla pgkpnalo nyo sa san beda

    • PG says:

      galing-galing chumamba ng la- salle no? kahit pinilay niyo na at lahat mga players nila, natalo pa rin kayo, natalo pa ang san beda! galing-galing!

      • upstart says:


        pre, hindi ba natalo ang eagles rin sa archers sa last uaap? anong tawag doon,chamba o galing? ano ano sinasabi mo hater ka lang.

        • PG says:

          ang hater yung nasa taas. halata naman na na-out work at na-out hustle nila ang BE sa endgame eh. bago ka pumutak eh sana tignan mo muna maglaro. ang chamba eh yung mga tipong buzzer beater from halfcourt lang. lahat, kung pursigido at masipag ang isang team, kayang-kaya. ..|..

          • upstart says:


            hirap ka kausap.,pabagobago ang kwento..ang sinabi ni muralla22 walang consistency ang game effort ng archers..panolo yterday talo 2dy..sana tuloy tuloy para sabihin hindi chamba..getz mo na?

          • yahoo says:


            pacomment comment ka pa diyan alamin mo kasi yung eksena. Lumalabas yung edukasyon mo. Halatang sarcasm lang ang ginagamit ni pg sa reply niya kay muralla.

    • yahoo says:

      ang ibig sabihin lang ng pagkatalo nila sa Adamson eh kayang kaya din ng Ateneo, FEU at Adamson ang San beda,


  • PG says:

    isipin na lang natin na ito ang magical run ng Butler at ni Gordon Hayward before being stopped cold by Duke with Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singler and Nolan Smith. :)

  • muralla22 says:

    hndi p nman ngllban ang letran at ateneo dis year aa…..di bale pag nkhrap nyo kami m22lad kayo sa san beda

  • muralla22 says:

    i,m admit it dat we are d underdogs…..but hu can say,bilog ang bola……we can pull of a surprise….

  • muralla22 says:

    pare bilog ang bola…tgnan mo nangyare sa san beda…nadisgrasya…bka gnyan dn mangyare sa inyo

    • yahoo says:

      don’t worry. we know adamson very well. San Beda is just used to facing weak teams in general. Lasalle is a strong team in NCAA’s terms.

  • Chona Diomino Balangon says:

    Congratulations! May God Bless you all. Keep it up the Good Work.

    Go, Go, Go FALCON

  • pccl2010 says:

    pccl means best of the best kaya sana maging legit na itong liga na to..

  • FalconBridge says:

    A-D-A-M-S-O-N U!!!

    manalo matalo laban lang..

  • OLD BEDAN says:


  • baurdur says:

    DLSU really isn’t meant to beat AdU this year! We’ll be back next year :)

    I have this feeling that AdU would win it all in this PCCL, then again, I’m still rooting for ADMU, since I like their team better :))

  • the_falcon_way says:

    Kung hindi big deal ang Unigames, FilOil, PCCL. So be it! Atleast we have the guts to face you in any of those league. Hindi yung andaming excuses, kesyo ganon, kesyo ganyan.

    Screw all the Haters here. Loosing streak or not, a ball game is still anybody’s ball game. Go Adamson Falcons!

  • r3xle0 says:

    its about time for adamson to shine in the national spotlight. adamson has never been this good since the time of duremdes, aquino, ej feihl.

    it will be huge for them if they can win the pccl title.
    but then again, ateneo katapat nila. they need to play excellent basketball.

    but one thing is for sure,they will be a uaap powerhouse next year.

  • Abueva says:

    Best to get Fajardo to your school

  • Abueva says:

    yes and ateneo is in the weak bracketing in the pccl compared to adamson

  • muralla22 says:

    yun na nga eh…mas mahihina na nga nkaharap nyo kesa sa adamson,muntik pa kayo masilat ng lyceum….

    • yahoo says:

      But for Ateneo to get to the best spot, Ateneo had to win the championship in the UAAP. Kaya nga top seed siya. We all know how tough it was to win in the UAAP, therefore, it was the tougher road.

  • pepotz says:

    This will be a tougher game now for Adamson, who played with SSC-R and DLSU – teams who have a depleted line-up. Will be a nail biter if both will play team basketball, which ADMU always shows. ^_^

  • Abueva says:

    also ateneo has more rest days based on their schedule compared to adamson. kaya kung di pa sila mag champ niyan, nakakahiya na

  • Direktor says:

    Congrats to the Adamson Soaring Falcons on the come from behind win, 80-78 to take a 1-0 lead in the PCCL finals.

  • That Important Important Rebound says:

    Yehey. Nanalo din Adamson. Congrats po =)

  • Ateneo One Big Fight says:

    Wow! Adamson won yey! Congratulations Falcons. Good thing there is a Game 2 on Sunday and we will try to extend the series, see you on Game 3 Falcons.

    This is not the last flight of the Blue Eagles in the PCCL. GO ATENEO ONE BIG FIGHT!

  • bubuchacha says:

    buti pa AdU umaasenso.

  • Juiced says:

    Congrats Falcons! Hanep galing ni Nulyes!

  • geric says:

    corny pala ha! kung Ateneo pala nanalo hindi corny.. hehe!

  • geric says:

    isa na lang!! Champion na!! lets celebrate!!
