San Beda survives Mapúa

DAVE Marcelo turned trash into treasure, salvaging a broken play after Garvo Lanete slipped to the floor by coming up with the loose ball and nailing an up-and-under layup to give San Beda College a four-point lead with 27.2 seconds in his squad’s tiff with the Mapúa Institute of Technology. The basket was also enough to hand the defending champions a 74-68 win, its seventh straight in the NCAA’s 87th season, after 40 minutes of tough play against a feisty Cardinals quintet.

Prior to that conversion, it was all touch and go for the reigning champions as Mapúa overcame a 61-47 San Beda lead early in the fourth quarter. Baskets by Allan Mangahas, Mike Parala and Mark Sarangay cut the lead down to six, 61-55, with 6:06 left to play in the fourth as the Cardinals took advantage of sloppy San Beda offensives. After the Red Lions rebuilt the lead to 10 on back-to-back trips to the free throw line by Lanete, Mangahas and Sarangay teamed up again to cut the lead to four, 70-66 with Sarangay connecting on a hook shot over Marcelo, with 1:49 left to play. San Beda then committed a 24-second infraction, awarding the ball back to the Cardinals, who got nothing on their first try. But luckily, a Red Lion had tipped the ball out trying to get the rebound, allowing Mapúa to reset with 1:04 left. Yousef Taha missed on his drive, but Kenneth Ighalo was there for his fifth offensive rebound of the game, throwing it back to “The Snake” Mangahas, who nailed a floater with 47.2 seconds left that made it a two-point, 70-68 game. Off a San Beda timeout, the play coach Frankie Lim drew up was being executed perfectly, until Lanete slipped after using a screen to shake off his defender. Luckily, Marcelo, the screener, pounced on the ball, faked, and tossed it up, to pad the lead to 72-68. Mapúa called its last timeout, but Mangahas whiffed on a triple, and Anjo Caram nailed a layup off a Lanete pass to close the game.

Lanete top-scored for San Beda with 18 points despite shooting just 5-of-13 from the field, to go along with his six rebounds and three assists. Marcelo had the best game out of all the San Beda big men, a double-double of 13 points and 12 rebounds, while Caram added another 13 markers, plus three dimes.

The Red Lions found themselves down early, 12-7, before a 9-0 run that included a Baser Amer triple and an and-one play by Melo Lim gave them a 16-12 lead. Mapúa was able to knot things in the second quarter though 25-all, off a triple by Mangahas with 5:54 remaining in the first half. Mangahas and Jason Pascual then teamed up to give the Cardinals a 40-32 lead with a minute left in the first half, but a triple by Caram, a transition basket by Lanete, and a split at the line by Anthony Semerad allowed San Beda to slice that lead to just two points, 40-38 at the half.

The two teams went back and forth coming out of the break, but the Red Lions put on an impressive display of scoring, closing out the third period with a 16-1 blast that was padded by a technical foul on a Mapúa assistant for excessive complaining. The run was carried over to the fourth after Rome de la Rosa hit a triple and Marcelo scored on a putback, creating the 61-47 bulge that the Cardinals ate into. “I just thought we had a [strong] third quarter,” said Lim, who pointed to it as the game’s turning point. “We limited them to just seven points. That was huge for us.”

Mangahas led all scorers with 25 points, while also pulling down nine rebounds. Mike Parala excelled in his short stint with 12 points and six rebounds in 11 minutes, before fouling out, while fellow big man Sarangay added 10 and six. Taha scored just four points, but had 14 rebounds and two blocked shots.

Early on, the Cardinals gave the Red Lions fits on the glass by going with three big men, a tactic that helped give Mapúa a huge 54 to 32 advantage on the boards. Lim countered by going to a zone defense. But with not enough shooters on the floor, the Cardinals threw up a lot of misses. Eventually, Mapúa head coach Chito Victolero relented and returned to a more conventional lineup, a decision compounded by Parala’s foul trouble. “As far as I remember, this was the only game where we were beaten badly in rebounds and still won the game,” said Lim about the department the Red Lions are used to dominating. “I’m very disappointed with the way the guys backed down and rebounded. I got to give credit to Mapúa, they scouted us well. ”

San Beda still has two foes to conquer before sweeping the first round, the JRU Heavy Bombers on Wednesday, August 10, and the much-anticipated finals rematch with the San Sebastian Stags on August 19. The now 2-5 Mapúa Cardinals still have the Stags as well on August 10, before finishing their first round assignments with host school Perpetual Help Altas on August 15.

The scores:

San Beda 74 – Lanete 18, Marcelo 13, Caram 13, de la Rosa 11, A. Semerad 8, D. Semerad 4, Amer 3, Lim 3, K. Pascual 1, J. Pascual 0, Villahermosa 0

Mapúa 68 – Mangahas 25, Parala 12, Sarangay 10, Pascual 5, Taha 4, Nimes 4, Banal 3, Ranises 3, Stevens 2, Ighalo 0

Quarter scoring: 20-17, 38-40, 56-47, 74-68

      ZZZZzzzzzz eslep ka muna 2-4 enyu e.

    • bozoink says:

      Oo.San Beda asa kay Dave!di kasi petiks si Dave eh!nyak!

    • Together-on-three says:

      This is the first time I watched the Cardinals game to see how true this strong team is overhyped. And well, its really true. Celebrating during beautiful plays even if the game is not finished and closed. And when it comes to Yousef Taha, I thought he was a 6’7 muscular and agile guy. He was only single-handedly contained by Dave Marcelo, who is smaller. He has to learn a lot yet in this league. And the Cardinals should also learn that Garvo will shoot the ball no matter how horrible his point production will be. You have to contain him until the final buzzer sounds. ^_^

  • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

    FEAR THE ‘FRO!

  • you’ve got to hand it to the cardinals. they always manage to give us a hard time – ALWAYS!

    i dread the day when their players mature.

    kudos to dave, anjo and gabo!!!

    they carried us through.

    • Escudo says:

      SCD, I would rather have a close game like this now so we do not tip toe on any team. This keeps them challenged.

      • banned says:

        on the other hand, wins like this and the one against csb might just give the team the impression that we can play lousy for 2 or 3 quarters and still come out with a win.

        we didnt exactly give our best defense tonight. the first and second quarters were terrible. the first six minutes of the third was pretty much the same thing until the trademark tough defense of the red lions carried us thru.

      • Dennis says:

        I hope we don’t overlook JRU. They always bring their A game against us.

      • i agree my bro! better now than in the latter phase of the tourney.

        FYI, i caught the game on TV…laughed my a** off w/those spot interviews by abs on the so-called recto boys’ big three.

        they claim to cruch us when we meet them. hehe

        • JUAN DIEGO says:

          SO BE IT. Remember during the FROLICS Sangalang was at the campus trying to apply as a REDLION. That’s his way of expressing himself after being rejected by the coaching staff.

          • Escudo says:

            @JD and SCD

            This is true. After the Fr. Martin’s game vs DLSU. Borgie was speaking with Ian, who when asked if he wanted to play with the Red Lions, said “Kayo po, kung puede po, kasi walang pa kaming Coach at practice”. To mean that since the end of the PCCL, they have had no practice. So, we some of the alumni connected him to the proper channels. That was the polite thing to do. But, the coaching staffs decision has always been not to poach most especially from the Recto school, its not that we are lacking in talent. As a matter of fact, without boasting too far off, our Team Behold can be in the championship standing as our Red Lions, it would be a great match to see the two play against each other. I assure you all, that Team Behold is of Championship calibre.

            This TV clip was ostensibly supposed to hype the unfinished business we have with each other since we stand on the same standing now.

    • banned says:

      always. hats off to you, cardinals. if your highly touted rookie showed more than just tantrums on the court, you might have taken this game away from us. what a baby.

      • Escudo says:

        You forgot the word ‘big”. He kinda resembles Baby Huey, no?

        • banned says:

          shall we call him big baby then? haha! i just hope we don’t offend big baby davis, this big baby nickname for taha is just for all the wrong reasons. sir red cafe, can we get ronnie manlapaz to try this out during the next game of mapua? :)

          • Escudo says:

            No! Rolly would get a stare down!

          • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

            bro when is the fr martins cup game?

          • Escudo says:

            today at la co. a few of us are going 12nn. paxbedan, red rampant, banned, etc.

          • banned says:

            rolly pala! haha!

            yh, we talked with ibp group yday not to discuss matters concerning our team behold, our new recruits, inside information concerning the team,etc., here in the inboundpass. if you have fb, you may add pula or san beda red lions. i’ll just post schedules there. this goes to all the rest of the ibp bedans here. i know we’re all excited for our team next year, but let’s all understand that we have to set a limit at what goes out to other teams. first, we do not want to put any additional pressure on our incoming players. secondly, and this is more important, we do not want our recruits to be pirated by other teams. we have one of the best recruitment programs and if we broadcast it here, we may just see that come to an end. let’s discuss these things in our fb pages or better yet, meet up with us during the games or at the fellowship after. i guarantee you will get more than just gossips and rumors. you get the real thing, straight from the horse’s mouth.

            pax to all. animo!

          • banned says:

            sir escudo! red cafe just said it yday eh! haha! anyway, i think this was already discussed in a previous thread before so no sense in keeping it a secret. but as asked by keyman and red cafe, let’s keep everything on the down low here in ibp. delicates mga recruits natin.

          • Escudo says:

            Team Behold claws JRU 101 – 70 something. With a bench clearing incident from a punch by no 7 of JRU to Moralde. Earlier Moralde dunked on this guy kaya na pikon siguro…lol

          • red rampant says:

            YOUSEF TAHA (TAHA-N) Tahan na sa iyak.

          • Dennis says:

            Moralde can dunk?

          • paxbedan says:

            @dennis

            yes sir i saw with my own two eyes. the bench clearing incident happened because of number 7′s act, some say he punched moralde while other say he pulled moraldes jearsey. either way, foul yung no 7

          • Dennis says:

            Tsk tsk team B pa lang kung ano ano na natututunan

          • bedanrower says:

            @Sir Escudo

            Sir pati ung coach ng jru team b napikon din ata sa pagkatambak nila sa team behold. I overheard ludovice after the game. knkwento niya kila mar and melo kinausap siya nung coach ng jru sinasabi magsuntukan nalang daw sila ni number 7(from jru) sa baba ng laco gym. tsk tsk..

          • banned says:

            now, that’s good coaching, eh? kaya pala ganyan players ng jru. i hope this also serves as extra motivation for our a team to destroy the mabuhey team next week. we win by 15 points at least.

          • Escudo says:

            i had us by 11 with letran, and by 8 with mit. near.

            the red lions were there at fr martins and they will repay.

          • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

            saw that #7 guy raised his finger while moving away. tsk tsk. saw vice talking with the coach i thought he was trying to explain their side and wanted vice to talk to our boys to keep cool. gusto pala nya pagsabungin yun mga bata. e kung kami na lang kayang dalawa ni coach? :)

          • the_curse_of_webb says:

            There is also a discussion in pex regarding San Beda’s recruitment.

          • Dennis says:

            Sino ba coach ng team B nila?

          • Escudo says:

            Yh, eh di ginalunggong na tinapa labas ng JRU coach, nasa Mendiola tayo. Malayo-layo ang Mental etse Shaw…

          • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

            @dennis

            moralde can dunk! it was a dunkfest!

            @banned

            i was wondering for how long can we keep these boys a secret. they are too explosive to get unnoticed. :)

            @escudo

            i rushed to the la co gym when u told me the game is @12nn because of curiosity and it was worth it. :)

          • Escudo says:

            Truly Team Behold ya bra?

            Am a believer too! Was with Su, Juice and David last nite at dinner at Red Cafe’s gig .

          • red rampant says:

            Good I was not there, I might have rolled my Saturday newspaper and hit that coach in the head three times, I repeat, THREE times para matauhan. Dare me, I’d do that the next time around.

        • Red Cafe says:

          Escudo, Actually that’s my wifey calls him since she first saw him at my birthday party 4 years ago.Lol…

    • sketch says:

      caram’s performance yesterday was, dare i say, borgie-esque. he provided veteran leadership amidst the RLs woes on offense early in the game. he was playing so well that he played heavy minutes. i think they played taha well on defense, giving him different looks.

      • Escudo says:

        caram good performance merited his almost 4th Q playtime. I agree with the Borgie-esque style. He can handle the leather and create. Actually he was tired towards the end. Paolo should have played as well to speed things up. But Frankie got disappointed and shortened the rotation. Am sure he wanted to throw the whole book at MIT.

        • sketch says:

          i think caram played almost the entire 3rd quarter, was given some time to rest during the 4th but had to be reinstated into the line-up to steady things when mapua made its comeback. good thing he still had enough gas to finish the game. got to sit near ola and juice yesterday, and boy they were not happy with taha. looks like they can’t wait to have a crack at him next year.

          • Escudo says:

            i recall anjo got pulled out when we have our big lead and baser and jake came in. but were immediately inserted when the cards scored 6 or 8. anjo and ant came in for baser and jake.

            oh i know where you sat! red rampant was among you and you didnt know. juice was there with ola and juice was even standing cheering.

          • sketch says:

            haha. i just went on a whim. i thought i wouldn’t catch the game. thank goodness for the first game for going into overtime.

          • banned says:

            sketch, if you were among the group of rampant and the team b players, i was just right there as well, in my usual corner. sayang, could have introduced myself na pala. i had to leave right after the game, did you get to meet up with the ibp guys after?

          • sketch says:

            @banned

            nope. had to leave early too. maybe next time. i was laughing everytime the two had something to say to taha.

          • banned says:

            that was the start of taha’s downfall.. he was affected by the crowd na. he kept on looking at your group as ms o. had something to say as well. haha!

            next time, bro.

          • sketch says:

            next time. i’ll try to catch the JRU game as well, if i finish work early, that is.

          • red rampant says:

            He, he. Ola, Juice, Ms. O and myself were of service. We cheered, yeah cheered more than our voices can. It was fun because we got into the head of Taha. What a rookie he is.

          • sketch says:

            @red rampant

            i think i have a good idea who you were in that group. you guys really got taha’s attention, hehe.

    • red rampant says:

      This game reminds me of the 6 point difference from last year’s encounter with the Cardinals.

  • McWurm says:

    Congrats to the Red Lions., though another close game for them.,came from a very slow start., specially in rebounding..,

  • Dennis says:

    Good job RLs. Muntik na

  • peyups drop out says:

    cheap shot from jake pascual, a low blow to Y. Taha :P

    • banned says:

      did you see all the elbows he threw to kyle and jake’s face? for some reason, he never tried anything against big dave. takot siguro.

      • Escudo says:

        Taha got blocked silly by Big Dave. And, I also liked Jake’s chase off a Nimes lay up! Boom your gone baby!!!

        • banned says:

          posted dave up? bata ka pa, big baby! don’t try that again!

          that was a great block for jake. imo, he’s the best weak side defender and chase-down shot blocker in collegiate basketball today. yutien andrada is a close second.

          nimes. this kid will be a very, very good player in a year or two. watch out for this kid. his crossover dribble reminded me jamal crawford’s.

          as for taha, i sincerely hope that he learns to throw more than just tantrums on the court. if he develops into a very good inside presence, he can be of good use to the national team.

          best of luck on your next game mapua! get that w!

      • AnimoSanBeda says:

        Takot sa fro ni Big Dave.

      TOMOOOOO…

    • Wrestlers says:

      Let’s get ready to rumble!!!
      Suntukan na lang daw sabi ni Jake Pascual.

  • Red Cafe says:

    That was a close game. Maturity and composure on end games paved the way to our victory! Those were 2 crucial baskets by Big Dave. One was the put back and the other was the twist and turn and fake then shoot basket! Man, it sure brought the house down! Nice game Cards!

  • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

    rebs are awful. but the free throws are worse!

  • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

    big dave is the man! fear the ‘fro!

  • Bedanpride says:

    Animo!

  • RM says:

    saan na mga haters? =)

  • do you realize that mapua’s front line is bigger than ours? 6’6, 7, 8! that’s why nahirapan tato nung 1st half. they beat us on every dept. – INCLUDING REBOUNDS – where we were supposed to dominate.

    yun lang, we had the right idea in attacking their bigs. they got into foul trouble and couldn’t sustain their D.

    experience pulled us through – this time.

    • Escudo says:

      Our biggest is Kyle at 6’6, Dave 6’5, Jake 6’4, Dj and Ant 6’5…

    • red rampant says:

      Mapua rebounds were 26 defensive and 28 offensive making it 54 while San Beda got 18 defensive and 14 offensive rebounds with a sum of 32. This paved way for Mapua to have 18 second chance points and San Beda was limited to only 8 points. This disparity was the worst stats the Red Lions have played in 6 years. Our Red Lions need to improve on boxing out the bigs of other teams. They beat us down in every aspect of the game except for their fouls which were 24 and Red Lions 17. The 15 out of 27 (56%) free throws gave much of the numbers. But in the end, Cardinals cracked under pressure, specially their hyped center Y. Taha. He is a big joke playing almost the entire game. An individual record of 39 mins. He had 4 points and 14 rebounds. 8 of those rebounds were worthless of a score. So it was just 6 for contribution. A liability as I noticed. His team mates would not even want to pass the ball to him in the last canto.

      • sketch says:

        the boys got outworked on the glass, that’s why they couldn’t get their running game going. they also have to work on the freethrows. they did miss plenty. even our best shooters missed a lot.

  • AnimoSanBeda says:

    Practice those free throws. The boys missed a lot of them earlier.

  • thinker says:

    kaya pa yan cards. congrats for the win bedans.
    wag tayo magalit sa haters. they just don’t understand the game like we do.

    • Dennis says:

      Thanks pare. Goodluck on your next game

      • Escudo says:

        Baste right? Yeah, Go Cards beat Baste!!!

        • Dennis says:

          Yup. Gandang matchup

          • Escudo says:

            Taha must focus on his game and not complain if he wants to make a dent at the offensive plays. Abueva will make mince meat of him if he gets swallowed into the mind game.

          • Dennis says:

            Si J.Pascual na daw bahala kay the Beast.

          • red rampant says:

            Y. Taha is like a child who keeps on complaining. When he scored his second and last basket, he over reacted as if he won the lotto. This fella needs to mature. He wants the ball and his team mates would not even pass it to him in the last quarter.

  • Thinker says:

    dun naman ako bilib sa san beda. hindi naiintindihan ng mga hater na hindi lang si sam ekwe and sudan ang dahilan kung bakit lagi una kumakanta ng school hymn after the game ang sbc. magaling talaga ang training staff na nadedevelop nila ang players each game. good job. kaya naman always deep ang bench nila e. mental toughness. namamaximize ang talent ng lahat ng players hindi katulad sa ibang school gumraduate na bench warmer lang. agree? exhibit a – Lanete.

  • thinkerS says:

    imo, time pa nila dela pena, ian mazo, neil pascual, sean co then entered banal then mangahas magaling naman ang players e? you can see the talent in games pero alam natin na marami pang kaya gawin e?

    now, i believe that the roster of mapua is championship caliber but i think the coaching staff and the players themselves do not know that.

    • Dennis says:

      Lakas ng Mapua nun. Yun yun season na nalaglag yun Baste sa stepladder match di ba? Tapos nanalo kayo ng 1 game samin sa F4.

  • x3nt says:

    MAPUA

    The Good:
    -Was able to control the boards
    -Controlled the pace/tempo of the game, forced the RL’s to half court plays
    -Was able to keep up with the the RL’s intensity

    The Bad:
    -Got into foul trouble in the crucial stages of the game
    -Taha was limited to just a few baskets, he was a NEAR no factor in offense

    The Ugly:
    -Technical fouls, they could have won this game if not for the technical foul called against their assistant coach. This started SBC’s run.

  • informer says:

    paulit-ulit yung mga commentators asking who is the last decent big man of mit before taha? butch said si ramas & cheng imho that is way too long. anung tawag kay nat cruz and the human eraser omanzie rodriguez? most of the commentators nowadays do lack in historical backgrounds of the teams and the good old ncaa. talagang mapapaghalataan mong they just followed the games recently.

  • x3nt says:

    San Beda

    The Good:
    -Ball distrubution as always
    -There’s alway someone who’s willing to step up each and every game. It was Big Dave Marcelo this time (Kudos)
    -Was able to setup a fairly decent half court offense
    -Contained Taha

    The Bad:
    -Wasn’t able to execute their running game
    -Was out rebounded

    The Ugly:
    -Freethrow, freethrow, freethrow

    • Escudo says:

      We needed leaders to finish and Dave delivered. Very patient inside. Get Taha to be more emotional he goes pfft.

      They were bigger than us w a 6’7 6’8. Thus offensive Rb’s got 2nd chance points.

      Ft’s could be a matter of death next time. We usually do well here but not at this game.

    • banned says:

      let’s add this to the list of things we need to work on for the next 2 games:

      we were outhustled with almost every single loose ball out there. mapua has an even bigger front court than us, though they really couldn’t control all the rb’s, they were able to tap them out to the guards lurking outside. our guards need to find their man and not allow them to pick up these loose balls.

      on the ugly side, we need focus! the team seems to play at less than 100% on a lot of stretches, esp at the start of the games. we can get away with this against jru, but definitely not against baste, which is known to start games at a very fast pace.

  • Army Green says:

    This one’s for all UAAP and NCAA teams & fans. Good luck everyone!

  • red rampant says:

    Another big joe aside from Y. Taha is Keneth Igahalo who played 23 mins and scored none! Just 6 rebounds and 2 assists. Only 3 of his rebounds were converted into points by his teammates.

  • bystander says:

    I’m always kinda torn everytime San Beda plays against Mapua…Nah, the thought that the Cardinals will just hand it over to the Red Lions never entered my mind. In the end, I’m happy that SBC won. Yet proud of the way MIT gave them a good fight!

  • sketch says:

    Great game yesterday! Big dave saved the day for the Red Lions! it feels great cheering for the team again while watching it live!

  • shobe says:

    fear the FRO! BIG BAD DAVE is the MAN!

    Animo!

  • La Furia Rojo says:

    Dumi nung Taha, grabe.

  • Anti-heat says:

    The fact that Mapua can stay with San Beda up to the game’s closing minutes means they are a talented team themselves. I still think the coaching staff of Mapua are not able to maximize the talent and the potential of the team, the top 3 teams of the league I guess is pretty much determined already and there about 5 teams fighting for that last spot, they better start racking up the wins.

    • Escudo says:

      That’s correct A-H, they can stay and they have the ceiling to match us. We do not have the top predator Su, so they have the advantage in that area. Notice that by not controlling the boards, it limited our fastbreak runs to almost nil. They are the only team who has that kind of edge, for now. Lyceum to me can barge into the F4 if they play right. SBC, SSCR, CSJL and LPU, MIT, JRU or CSB at the last F4 spot. It will be a slugfest at that grouping.

      Watching out for MIT at round two. If they get into the F4 it will be a different fit altogether.

  • a.v.o.o says:

    nasobrahan na naman ata sa work out redlions kaya nawala yung pulso sa freethrow… haha…

    kala ko talaga upset na buti nalang si big dave nagstep up..
    kahit magisa lang ako nanood kahapon tumatalon ako magisa haha..

          • Army Green says:

            What a hell of a game! Cheers to the UE Red Warriors! Panalo na sana pinatalo pa ni BRP.

          • Z says:

            it’s doubly hard to swallow, UE is not supposed to beat any team with that line up. AT ALL.

          • Dennis says:

            WTH is happening to NU? From preseason favorites to final four hopeful. Hihihi huhuhu

          • Anti-heat says:

            @Z

            You made it sound more humiliating than it already is. LOL

          • Army Green says:

            NU plainly underestimated UE

          • What Everybody Said says:

            MY OBESRVATION: NU needs to work on team issues. Down on the last 3 to 4 plays of the game for the Bulldogs, when the ball is in the hands of BRP, the other 4 only stare and look. They don’t move for space or any rotation. So, I believe in practice, it’s even a one man show. Of course, you execute what you are familair with, which is in training.

          • Z says:

            @A-H

            can’t help it man. these team boldly said championship. no can do sir. :P

            @Dennis
            sir, this is what you call a PRETENDER. the biggest one i’ve ever seen.

          • incognito says:

            What a MELTDOWN indeed!!! Well, this only proves my point that there is no easy way to get into the F4. Not even when $$$ is involved. Hay. Wawa naman SK. NU looks like will be in the BOTTOM 4 again. I don’t expect they can beat DLSU, UST, AdU, FEU and ADMU. All hype… No show… Better luck next time!!!

          • SK says:

            mga insulares ! tsamba lang

          • What Everybody Said says:

            SK, wag sasama ang loob. Lahat ng recruits underperforming, kahit si BRP. Kahit pa 20ppg pa siya, underperforming pa rin siya. Hindi chamba yun. 4 losses na kayo, ibig sabihin apat na beses na. hindi lang kayo consistent.

          • SK says:

            ah ganoon ba yon. kala ko pwede pa kaming sa champeonsheep.

          • red rampant says:

            NU was over hyped by the media and themselves. I expected the team to be on top side by side with the Blue Eagles this year. This really shows that a single player can’t carry the burden for the entire team. M. Jordan took a couple of years to get a championship. NU might get it within the playing years or R. Parks. I saw and met the resident players of NU in team B. Man, they are big, really big.

          • SK says:

            endi mo pa nakita 2x 7’0″ sa tsina hihihi huhuhu

          • red rampant says:

            Dadmi haters nyo if that will be the case. We only have one eh dami ha haters. Now we do not have Sudan, meron pa din. be ready. Too much power needs bigger responsibilities. Look at what happend to Arellano and JRU.

    • What Everybody Said says:

      SK iyak ka na! BRP got blocked when forcing the issue to score a clutch basket, gets denied by the defense, then misses two FTs, had the rebound but just can’t finish. Looks like there’s no such thing as a walk in a park in UAAP. Tough luck, BRP.

  • dreingineer says:

    hay talo na naman :c

  • Bro_ellu says:

    Anu daw?

  • Anti-heat says:

    Di ko alam yon ah, ang daya naman ng San Beda nawawala yung mga players nila LOL.

  • What Everybody Said says:

    The last thing I heard was this: The San Beda Red Lions cannot afford to hire referees to fix the games.

  • What Everybody Said says:

    I though the last true all-filipino champion was in the year 2009. Looks like it’s 2005 pala. Kidding.

  • Crimson Fury says:

    Full of bitterness, if I may say so.

  • Crimson Fury says:

    Lame.

  • bydpogi says:

    Ganda nung game! Sayang kinapos MIT, Congrats San Beda!

  • Mav says:

    alas for cryin’ out loud you talk like chopsuey

  • Tax says:

    Hmmm, I just can’t comprehend how San Beda players can deny-intimidate when they aren’t even visible. Must be some sort of multi-million magical device only the rich schools can afford. Better yet, it affects the brainwaves of opponents in a Professor X sort of way. Imagine you’re just even beginning to think of driving down the lane and the next thought “Oh no! I got blocked by a San Beda black!”

    That’s just amazingly excellent! I’m thinking of getting one myself.

    Not in the case for my school which money is not an issue , for the spirit of being fair in the name of the game,LETRAN doesn’t want to land any race without a Filipino blood! >> i can only shake and scratch my head if this is the kind of education that (supposedly) good schools like letran is teaching kids these days. no wonder our country is the sick man of asia.

    • Dennis says:

      Naku lagot na. Nakita na nila yun invisible players natin!

    • red rampant says:

      We have only one for your info. Did you claim before, the Semerads were “import”. Then your bashing comment was erased 30 mins ago. You remind me of this columnist. You share the same wavelength. Sad is, he is smarter judging based on your sentence construction.

    • red rampant says:

      Huli ka nanaman. You are not from Letran! They do not teach your kind of english and even your tagalog is lost somewhere between the tissue of your brain and skull. They will disclaim you for your sentences. Letran will not allow such product like you. Your principle and language is far beyond the ones I know from Letran.

    • Mav says:

      pity you Alas i think you have a sense of false nationalism. Wake up buddy boy and look around you! You’re the laughing stock in this thread, you are lagging behind already due to your pinoy pride when only all it means is to put yourself and your fellowmen down. You can’t and won’t allow to move forward even if it will benefit us in the end. What a neanderthal you are :D

    • bystander says:

      Sounds to me like you’re the one in denial (this is the way that word should be spelled btw).

      You deny, for example, the arguments repeatedly put forth that San Beda’s so-called “imports” are legitimate students and are therefore qualified to play.

      You deny too that your real problem is that you can’t keep up with the “recruitment system” which San Beda didn’t start in the first place. So you hide under the cloak of your preference to go “All-Filipino”. Again, in denial of the fact that your school has fielded foreign players in the past not just in basketball but in other sports as well.

      Puru IMPORT? Puru 6’9 pa? Listen to yourself. Are you saying if our “import” were only 5’11 it would have been alright with you? Is that the reason why we hear nary a word nor whimper from you when Perpetual had 2 (not just 1) foreign player who were both small and never really made an impact.

      Sounds to me like you’re sourgraping only because ours are making an impact and your team can’t keep up. But the way you’re doing it…You’re not helping your cause. You are only embarassing your school!

      (As if naman SBC will stop getting dominant players just because you said so. Prepare yourself for more bitter years to come!).

    • red rampant says:

      @ alas. Just for fun. My 7 year old nephew (who plays basketball) is with me right now and I let him read your comment. To my surprise, he said “confusing words tito”.

      • banned says:

        were you really surprised? haha!

      • red rampant says:

        Dapat nga hindi coz si alas nga pala yun.

      • Escudo says:

        alas pano ka na? 5 yun na 6’9 up to 6’11 namin. Puro pinoy. wala na kaming import. pinoy ito pinsan ni japeth, slaughter, fiehl, marlou aquino and espino.

        oops nadulas sorry po mga bedans.

      • red rampant says:

        @ alas. Alalay po ako nila na laging handang maglingkod sa abot ng aking kakayahan. Opo P.A. ako nila. They need me and I need them and I need you as well. Reading your comments makes my day. Hirap kasi maging P.A. Kapagod.

    • Escudo says:

      alas so what your actually saying is being intimidated isn’t part of the game?

      Where do you think Alas got the move of shooting loopers, teardrops and lay off’s the glass? He learned to IMPROVISE because if our big!!! If not for that he will have no other weapon than the 3. Open your eyes! Puro 6’9? Eh wala nga kaming import! pinaka malaki namin 6’6 si Kyle Pascual–PINOY!!!

      Ikaw ang in denia and regression mode. Alas are you SBF/TIDR?

      ano ba yan, denial ba dapat or dental? di namin kasalanan kung lahat ng players nyo denied intimidated. whatever the heck that means.

  • YounghusbandsPLAY4SanBedaFC says:

    i watched the team behold early this afternoon and they are a bunch of bad people. the officials had to realign the hoop because of ola, moralde and juice’s excessive dunking. i think they had 5-6 dunks in the 3rd! there’s 3 straight possession ending on a slam! my gaddd!!! what’s going on!!! :))

    • red rampant says:

      You are a hopeless case. My friend is one of the brilliant minds in neuropsychology in the Phlippines. Your nervous system might have been damaged resulting to a poor cognitive function. You see alas, you always like to put yourself into shame. You have been schooled countless times by myself and different people. Some even from the school you claim is a part of your education, which I qualm. I and some of the gentlemen here, Bedan or not would be gratefull if you SHUT THE F#@K UP!

    • red rampant says:

      I told you. I watched them play 2 weeks ago at the FMC. Next year, the Red Lions will be like a pro team. Fast, agile and smart. It will be the strongest line up ever.

      @alast

      baka maihi ka sa pantalon mo, next year pa naman sila lalaro. pilit mo inaalala yun line-up namin next year na parang samin nakadepende kung magchampion kayo. kung mahina ba kami, sa tingin mo kayo ang magchampion? may baste csb mapua pa! di hamak na mas maganda programa at recruitment nila kesa sa inyo!
