    [B[SIZE=6]]‘Win or go home’[/SIZE][/B]


    By Rommel C. Manlosa
    Wednesday, October 3, 2012

    PUSHED against the wall, the Southwestern University Cobras are hoping to correct the mistakes of Game 3 in order to survive for one more game.

    Commit those mistakes again and the University of the Visayas Green Lancers will be celebrating an unprecedented 10th championship if they win today’s Game 4 of the 2012 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) College Basketball Championship Series at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Game time is 5:30 p.m. but Cesafi Commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy and the Cebu Coliseum management advised spectators to come earlier to avoid the long lines.

    The coliseum will open its gates at 3 p.m., while they will try to address traffic and parking woes to accommodate the expected huge crowd.

    Citom Chairman Sylvan “Jack” Jakosalem told Sun.Star Cebu that traffic enforcers will be deployed along Leon Kilat and Sanciangko Sts. to man the traffic flow, which is expected to get heavy from 4 p.m.

    With its hope to win its first Cesafi title getting dimmer, SWU coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba is egging his boys to do better.

    “Win or go home,” was his short but honest comment.

    UV coach Felix “Donbel” Belano Jr., knows that SWU will try to get back in track that is why he and his coaching staff prepared the Lancers for an all-out war this afternoon.

    “Yes definitely. They will try to bounce back, but we are ready. This is what we had prepared for one year and it (title) is just a win away, the chance is already there.

    We will go for it,” Belano said.

    SWU played a solid game for 26 minutes last Monday but collapsed gradually right after Benoit Mbala’s in-your-face dunk over Steve Cedrick Akomo at the 4:10 mark of the third.

    In fact, the Cobras were leading in three periods before they lost composure in the final period.

    “We will try to minimize our turnovers, make those free throws and grab rebounds.

    These were the things that made us lose last time,” Alcoseba added.

    SWU committed a total of 27 turnovers while UV gave up only nine. The Cobras, however, were more accurate in free throws, missing only 15 of 39 attempts (62 percent) against UV’s 12-of-24 free throw clip (50 percent). But it was the four straight misses in the last 17.4 seconds that mattered most.

    The guards will be the center of attraction in this afternoon’s game – SWU’s Monbert Arong, who scored nothing in Game 3, Bonifacio Guillena, Joseph Nalos and Benito Ortuyo have to play over the above the level of UV’s John Abad, Phil Mercader, Eman Calo and Jerome Silva to force a deciding game.

    SWU tries to extend series to Game 5
    UV GOES FOR KILL

    Green Lancers look to end two-year title drought, SWU tries to extend series to Game 5

    By Jonas Panerio
    Cebu Daily News 7:07 am | Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012
    Game today:

    Cebu Coliseum
    5:30 p.m. – UV vs. SWU

    The University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers will try to complete their long and arduous climb back to the top as they gun for the championship when they face the Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras in Game Four of the best-of-five finals series of the 12th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. men’s basketball tournament at the Cebu Coliseum.

    The Lancers have a 2-1 lead going into today’s game.

    UV won the league’s first nine titles before its reign was disrupted by June Mar Fajardo and the rest of the University of Cebu Webmasters in 2010 and 2011.

    The Lancers took the pivotal series lead after their 69-65 win in Game Three.

    Team manager Gerald Anthony “Samsam”Gullas, though, remains wary of the prospect of a do-or-die Game Five, a scenario that he hopes to avoid by finishing it all today. “Hopefully, we can end it now,” he said. “We will do everything we can to do that. Kay kung mag-Game Five pa, it would be very dangerous since the momentum would be on their side.”said

    As with all the other games in this much-watched series, Game Three was another classic with UV dodging a bullet in the waning seconds to hack out the victory.

    The Lancers led by three, 68-65, when Steve Akomo was slapped with both a personal foul and a technical foul, giving SWU the chance to take the lead with four freethrows and possession afterwards.

    But SWU choked big-time with Junrey Ortuyo and Justin Aboude bricking their freethrow attempts. The Cobras also came up short on their game-tying attempt from three.

    WIN OR GO HOME

    SWU head coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba, summed up the team’s battlecry for today in a simple text message: “It’s win or go home.”

    Cobras team manager Ryan Aznar also recited their recipe for success if they were to have any hope of extending the series. “They really must have the heart and the composure. They must have it, the will to win,”Aznar said.

    Lancers gun for jugular tonight
    By Gabby G. Malagar (The Freeman) Updated October 03, 2012 12:00 AMComments (0)

    CEBU, Philippines - The University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers shoot for the clincher, but they must brace for another tough challenge from the Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras in today's Game 4 of the best-of-five collegiate basketball finals of the 12th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) season at the Cebu Coliseum.

    The Lancers and the Cobras will lock up horns at 5:30 pm, with the UV side of coach Felix "Donbel" Belano, Jr. seeking to finish off the series, which they currently led at two games to one.

    The Visayanian hardcourt warriors are just one win away from claiming their 10th CESAFI crown and whether or nor they could celebrate that milestone hinge on how the Cobras would fare after dropping two straight games they could have possibly won.

    The Cobras of legendary coach Raul "Yayoy" D. Alcoseba dropped a bombshell in the series opener when they vanquished the previously undefeated Lancers, 77-72.

    UV nearly went down a deep 0-2 hole, but was lucky enough to avert such kind of disaster after escaping with an 81-79 triumph in Game 2.

    The Lancers then showed the stuff that champions are made of in a 69-65 conquest of the Cobras in Game 3 last Monday.

    In that heart-rending debacle, the Cobras could have snatched victory from the jaws of defeat when trailing by only three points, 65-68, with 17 seconds left to play, UV's 6-foot-7 Nigerian recruit Steve Cedrick Akomo was whistled four a technical foul for resenting a call.

    The Cobras, however, wasted away that golden opportunity when Benito Ortuyo and Justin Aboude missed four consecutive free throws. Still, SWU had the chance to at least send the game into overtime, but the Cobras couldn't make one good offensive in their final possession to complete their agony.

    Aside from Akomo, the Lancers will again count on the likes of Jerome Silva, Phil Mercader, John Abad and Eman Calo to carry their offensive load. Hernal "Wowie" Escocio has yet to show up and prove he is worthy of the MVP award.

    The Lancers can also bank on Rene Saycon, Chris Perolino and Vincent Mendoza as they hope to end their two-year title drought.

    After winning an unprecedented nine straight championship, the Lancers were eventually dethroned by the University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters, then led by June Mar Fajardo, back in 2010. UV did not make it to the finals last season.

    The Cobras, on the other hand, are pinning their hopes on Aboude and Benoit M'Bala, their Cameroonian twin towers who are highly effective in containing UV's big men at the post.

    Among SWU's local gunners to watch out for are Monbert Arong, Benito Ortuyo, Bernie Bregondo, Bonifacio Guillena, and Joseph Nalos. The Lancers should keep an eye on them especially Arong, who is expected to bounce back after a disgraceful performance in their previous match where he was held scoreless in the entire 40-minute skirmish.

    Korona tuyo karon sa UV
    Ni Gabby G. Malagar (Banat) Updated October 03, 2012 12:00 AM

    CEBU, Philippines - Bugtong tuyo sa University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers mao ang paglangkat sa korona, apan kinahanglan nga sagubangon nila ang laing lisud nga hagit batok Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras karong adlawa sa Game-4 sa ilang "best-of-five" title series sa 12th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) diha sa Cebu Coliseum.

    Ang Lancers ug Cobras magsangka sa alas-5:30 sa hapon.

    Bitbit ang 2-1 nga baraha, ang Lancers ni coach Felix 'Donbel' Belano Jr. kinahanglan na lang nga mopakita sa ilang maayong duwa karon aron tapuson ang serye ug masakmit ang ilang ika-10 nga korona sa CESAFI. Samtang ang Cobras ni coach Raul 'Yayoy' Alcoseba miangkon sa Game-1 sa iskor nga 77-72. Nameligro ang Lancers nga mausban, apan swerte kay nakaipsot kini human moposte og 81-79 nga kadaugan sa Game-2 aron tablahon ang series, 1-1.

    Sa ilang kulbahinam nga Game-3 niadtong Lunes, higayon na sab unta nga modaog ang Cobras dihang milabaw sila og tres puntos, 68-65 sa nahabiling 17 segundos sa duwa dihang ang 6-foot-7 sa UV nga si Steve Cedrick Akomo gitawgan og upat ka technical foul tungod sa reklamo sa tawag sa reperi. Apan giusikan sa Cobras ang kahigayonan sa pagdaog dihang sila si Benito Ortuyo ug Justin Aboude misipyat sa ilang upat ka sunod-sunod nga free throws hinungdan sa ilang kapildihan.

    Gawas ni Akomo, ang Lancers magsandig sab nilang Hernal 'Wowie' Escocio, Jerome Silva, Phil Mercader, John Abad ug Eman Calo nga maoy modala sa ilang opensa.

    Maghangad sab ang Lancers nilang Rene Saycon, Chris Perolino ug Vincent Mendoza sa tuyo nga matambalan ang ilang kauhaw sa korona sud na sa duha ka tuig.

    Human midaog og siyam ka sunod-sunod nga kampiyonato, ang Lancers gihinginlan sa ilang trono sa University of Cebu (UV) Webmasters nga kaniadto gipangulohan pa ni June Mar Fajardo niadtong 2010. Ang Lancers wala na makabalik sa final sa miaging season.

    Sa laing bahin, ang Cobras maglaum sa ilang Cameroonian twin towers nga sila Aboude ug Benoit M'bala uban nilang Monbert Arong, Benito Ortuyo, Bernie Bregondo, Bonifacio Guillena ug Joseph Nalos. (BANAT NEWS)

    Matud pa ni Coach Toroman.... Fajardo learned to play basketball 6 months ago? huh? nigawas daw ni sa isa ka interview og sa national newspapers gahapon.

    Fajardo loses in PBA debut
    By Frank C. Calapre and Mike T. Limpag

    Wednesday, October 3, 2012

    PBA top pick Jun Mar Fajardo of the University of Cebu lost in his pro league debut with Petron, 102-86, against a gutsy Rain or Shine in the PBA Philippine Cup last night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    Fajardo scored on his first attempt JR Quiñahan but that was just one of the few bright spots for Petron. The 6’10” Cebuano finished with nine points and 13 rebounds and made only 5 of 11 free throws.

    On the other hand, Rain or Shine rookie Chris Tiu had an even worse debut, aggravating a hamstring injury. The former Smart Gilas captain could be out for two or three games.

    In the first game, Ronald Tubid and Sean Anthony combined for three points in the last 78 seconds to lift Barako Bull past Air 21 Express, 90-87.

    The Energy Boosters proved to be the much better team than the Express as they outlasted their sister team down the stretch to post their opening victory and join Ginebra at the leader board.

    “We last played together just two weeks ago. Enrico (Villanueva) is still groping for form when it comes to our system. But it’s good he recovered in the second half. We hav a lot of new faces in our team and we need to build up chemistry as soon as possible,” said Barako Bull coach Junel Baculi.

    Both were tied at 87-87 with only 2:07 remaining but the 6’4” forward Anthony, a transferee from the now defunct Powerade Tigers, split a charity to move the Energy Boosters up-front, 88-87.

    “We struggled defensively throughout the game. We have to respect their shots and their ability. Danny Seigle sat this out because of a flu. He will be back hopefully for our game against Petron. Sean Anthony has his moments, with the exit of Willie Miller. It’s time for Ronald Tubid to step up the play. He is now the main man,” added Baculi.

    DECIDING GAME 5
    SWU Cobras outlast UV Lancers to extend Finals to rubbermatch
    By Jonas Panerio

    Cebu Daily News 7:28 am | Thursday, October 4th, 2012

    Like a bad movie on perpetual replay, the Southwestern University Cobras built double-digit leads in the fourth period only to watch in horror as the University of the Visayas Green Lancers took them all away.

    However, this time around, the movie had a different ending, thanks to Cameroonian Ben Mbala and Bernie Bregondo, whose crucial makes in the dying seconds pushed the Cobras to a, 68-64 victory in last night’s Game Four that sent the best-of-five Finals series to a deciding Game Five in the 12th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) men’s basketball tournament at the rowdy Cebu Coliseum.

    In a series that has seen the heart, the passion and the will of both teams tested to the limit, it was only fitting that this series pitting these age-old rivals would get sent to a winner-take-all duel. But it nearly didn’t happen as SWU went back to its old habits and wasted a double-digit lead in the final canto for the third straight game.

    The Cobras led by as much as 14 points in the first half and still had a 58-47 advantage heading to the payoff stanza after a 10-0 run at the end of the third instigated by both Mbala and Bregondo.

    But UV, whose wins in these series were of the come-from-behind kind, rallied once more and unleashed a 15-2 blast capped off by four free-throws by Mythical Five forward, Jerome Silva, which gave them a, 64-62 lead, 2:07 remaining.

    MBALA TO THE RESCUE

    Just when all seemed lost for the demoralized Cobras, Mbala injected energy into their title quest as he fished a foul on a ferocious drive and calmly sank two free-throws to tie the game at 64-all. SWU regained possession and went to Bregondo who quickly drove it to the rack for the go-ahead lay-in, 66-64, 29.4 ticks on the clock.

    UV sued for time but their possession provided zilch as Eman Calo airballed his attempt from beyond the arc. Monbert Arong, SWU’s Mythical Five guard, then sealed the win with two free-throws with 6.8 seconds remaining. He finished with 18 points after going scoreless in Game Three.

    Mbala atoned for his sub-par performances in the last two games with 23 points, 12 rebounds and five blocked shots. UV got 17 from MVP-Rookie of the Year Wowie Escosio, who in this series, has made just one single free-throw. Calo had 13 markers.

    GAME 5 MOVED, UV OBJECTS

    However, there appears to be some controversy regarding the staging of Game Five, which originally was scheduled to be played today. But according to tournament official, Danny Duran, the game was cancelled and moved to Saturday, a move that was strongly objected to by Congressman and UV president, Eddie Gullas.

    “UV objects to the postponement of the game. The schedule was arranged before the start of the championship round. The UV Lancers will be at the Cebu Coliseum, ready to play tomorrow as scheduled. We understand that two of SWU’s players are injured but that’s part of the game,” said Gullas in his statement immediately after the game.

    SWU forges rubbermatch
    Game 5 'postponed' to Saturday, but UV will show up at the Coliseum today
    By Emmanuel B. Villaruel (The Freeman) Updated October 04, 2012

    CEBU, Philippines - The Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras wasted away twin-digit leads twice, but fought hard when it mattered most at crunchtime to turn back the University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers, 68-64, and forge a deciding match in their best-of-five series for the 12th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) collegiate basketball crown at the Cebu Coliseum.

    The deciding Game 5 is set for Saturday as announced by the table officials on orders of CESAFI commissioner Felix "Boy" O. Tiukinhoy, Jr. but expect the UV Lancers to be in full force at the playing venue today.

    "UV objects to the postponement of the game. The schedule that was arranged before the start of the championship round calls for Game 5 to be played tomorrow, October 4, at 5:30 pm. The UV Green Lancers will be at the Coliseum ready to play tomorrow (today) as scheduled," said UV President and Cebu First District Rep. Eduardo "Eddiegul" R. Gullas.

    "The CESAFI is not controlled by only one man and there is no Board resolution with regards to such postponement. We should play by the rules so expect us to be there at the playing court tomorrow (today)," added Gullas.

    Tiukinhoy, in a text message sent late last night, said he will make a formal announcement on when Game 5 will be played in a press conference at 10:30 this morning at the USJ-R conference room.

    After losing a 14-point advantage, 19-33, late in the second quarter and again a dozen-point edge, 46-58, with only 18 seconds left in the third period, the Cobras survived another monumental collapse, interestingly, with a big help from their rival player in Hernal "Wowie" Escosio, whose horrendous free throw shooting spelled UV's doom.

    Escosio, who had been largely criticized for his lackluster performance that ironically came after he was given the MVP award, shot a pitiful 1-of-10 from the stripe.

    When the Lancers needed someone to cling to as they struggled hard to catch up with the Cobras, Escosio turned out to be a big disappoinment as he fired blanks from the foul line including two crucial attempts at the final 1:21 mark of the contest that could have turn things around for UV.

    Trailing by 11 at the start of the final canto, 47-58, the Lancers staged a blistering 17-4 run capped by Jerome Silva's four consecutive hits from the charity lane that pushed them ahead by two, 64-62, with 2:07 left to play.

    After a turnover by the Cobras, the Lancers could have padded their lead and complete their huge turnaround, but their hopes vanished in thin air when Escosio flubbed his charities off a foul by SWU's 6-foot-6 Cameroonian banger Benoit Mbala with 1:21 to go.

    Moments later, Escosio was whistled for a foul against Mbala, who then calmly cank his gift shots to knot the count at 64-all with 59 seconds remaining.

    In the ensuing sequence, Silva was called for a traveling infraction, thus, setting up the stage for Bernie Bregondo's endgame heroics.

    "I saw an opening in that particular instance and I have no other thing in mind than to drive past UV defenders. Luckily, the ball went in," said Bregondo, whose crucial basket off a barelling drive put the Cobras on top for good, 66-64, with 29 ticks left before the final buzzer.

    The Lancers still had a chance to forge an overtime or even steal the win with a 3-pointer, but Eman Calo made an ill-advised attempt from beyond the arc that went airball.

    In an attempt to buy time, the Lancers quickly fouled Monbert Arong, who then took it as a golden opportunity to offset his dismal showing in Game 3 where he was held scoreless in their 65-69 defeat. Arong calmly sank his pressure-packed charities that broke UV's backs with six seconds to go.

    For SWU coach Raul "Yayoy" D. Alcoseba, their tying the series at two games apiece is a good indication that his wards have learned their lessons well after dropping two straight games they could have possibly won.

    In the same breadth, however, Alcoseba said it was no reason for them to celebrate.

    "We're happy to have tied the series but definitely it's no reason for us to celebrate," said Alcoseba after a post-game huddle with his players at their dugout. "What is important is that we learn from our mistakes. What we have now is that we did not give up. We did not quit. That has been my principal motivation to them."

    When Justin Aboude went ice-cold on the offensive end, his tag parner Benoit Mbala stepped up bigtime with 23 points. Arong also rose to the occasion with 18 markers, including a crisp triple in a decisive opening assault that vaulted the Cobras to an early 12-2 lead.

    After being down by as much as 14 points, the Lancers staged a courageous fightback to seize the upperhand, 39-38, only to falter in the end.

    On a bad night he must forget, Escosio still paced the Lancers with 17 points followed by Calo with 13.

    As judgment day beckons, possibly today, Escosio needs to conjure all skills and strength he could muster so as not to further subject himself into public ridicule for not dishing out an MVP-caliber performance in the entire series, even just for once. (FREEMAN)
