Gonzaga beats Duke

NCAA College America

Basketball Philippines Amazing #1 Guide 2

Coming into its showdown with third-ranked Gonzaga, top-ranked Duke had played five games and trailed for a total of 35 seconds — all season. And that’s among the reasons the Blue Devils, after jumping Kansas in the Associated Press poll following the first week of the season, have remained No. 1 everywhere.

They’ve been overwhelming.

This is why what happened here at the Lahaina Civic Center on Wednesday was so surprising. Gonzaga jumped Duke the way Duke normally jumps teams — shot 64.5 percent from the field in the opening 20 minutes, including 60.0 percentage from 3-point range, took a 16-point lead early in the second half, and survived a wild flurry late to record an 89-87 victory and secure the Maui Jim Maui Invitational title.

Folks had been wondering when Duke would first lose.

Basketball Philippines Team Pilipinas big men face a tall order


by Ernest Hernandez

The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) officially release the Team Pilipinas 12-man roster against Iran for the FIBA World Qualifiers that did not include 7-footer Greg Slaughter due to injury.

Even before the announcement, the big men of Team Pilipinas considered the possibility of dealing with Iran’s big men, particularly the 7-foot-2 Iranian center Hamed Haddadi.

With Slaughter out, head coach Yeng Guiao is expected to rotate Christian Standhardinger, Poy Erram, Asi Taulava, Beau Belga, and Raymond Almazan.

Basketball Philippines out to deal with Iran’s ceiling, bench depth

Rick Olivares ( – September 12, 2018 – 1:20pm

MANILA, Philippines – Come to Game Day 7 of the ongoing Asian Qualifiers of the 2019 FIBA World Cup on Thursday; Iran will try to defend its home turf against its old foe from the Far East that has been nipping at their heels for the last 10 years — the Philippines.

Iran is in the midst of a youth movement; However, when they started the Asian Qualifiers on a dour note, they had to call in some old heroes.

With only Oshin Sahakian, the veteran of Iran’s past dominance in the regional competition, it was enough as they fell rather embarrassingly to neighboring Iraq, 66-74, in a match played in Amman, Jordan, since the latter’s current state doesn’t allow the safe playing of matches there.

In the final frame, the Iraqis did well in the even-numbered quarters, outscoring Iran, 19-12.

Although Iran bounced back at home in Tehran with a 65-39 blowout of Qatar, in their second window, they brought back old reliables Samad Nikkhah Bahrami and Hamed Haddadi, who each scored 21 and 20 points in another laugher, 54-75, in Astana, Kazakhstan.

China survives Clarkson, Basketball Philippines with 82-80 squeaker.

MANILA, Philippines — Powerhouse China turned back a pesky Philippine side, 82-80, in Group D play of the 2018 Asian Games men’s basketball tournament Tuesday night at the Gelora Bung Karno Basketball Hall in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Chinese, who sat squarely on the driver seat for the first three quarters, leaned on Zhou Qi to cushion against the hastily-assembled Filipino squad.

However, the Philippines, bolstered with National Basketball Association cager Jordan Clarkson, patiently chafed on the lead. In the second frame, the Filipino-American led a blistering outing that saw the Nationals hold down perennial Asian Games hoops champions to just 16 points.

Japanese basketball players in prostitute ‘disgrace.’

By Nolan Philips

Four Japanese basketball players have apologized for bringing “disgrace” to their nation after being kicked out of the Asian Games to pay prostitutes for sex.

The regional Olympics was hit by scandal after spotting the players in a notorious red-light district of the Indonesian capital Jakarta wearing their national jerseys last week.

The expulsion of Yuya Nagayoshi, Takuya Hashimoto, Takuma Sato, and Keita Imamura will become a major embarrassment for Japan, which will host the Tokyo Olympics in two years.


“I deeply apologize for our careless act that has brought disgrace on not only basketball fans However also all of the Japanese people,” Sato told a news conference. 


Nagayoshi, wearing a black suit and tie, said he “can’t imagine” playing basketball again.

Japan Basketball Association chief Yuko Mitsuya said it would wait for a special committee of lawyer’s reports before formally punishing the four.


“I just feel a sense of shame,” said Yasuhiro Yamashita, the head of the Japanese delegation to the Asian Games, the world’s second-largest multi-sport event.

“We deeply apologize and intend to give the athletes thorough guidance from now on,” he told reporters in Jakarta.

Basketball Philippines Jordan Clarkson can’t wait to learn Gilas’ ‘fun style of play.’

JAKARTA — With around three minutes remaining in the third quarter of the Philippines’ 96-59 win over Kazakhstan in the 2018 Asian Games, cheers erupted from the Philippine bench. Nobody had made a spectacular play on the court; a player of it was causing the commotion.

Jordan Clarkson was finally here.

After days of uncertainty surrounding his stint, the Cleveland Cavaliers guard arrived in Jakarta from Los Angeles and was brought straight to the basketball arena in the sprawling Gelora Bung Karno Sports Complex on Thursday.

Since his plane touched down at around the same time the Philippines-Kazakhstan game tipped off, there was no way he could make it in time. However, we could argue that his mere presence inspired his teammates and raised their level of play. From the moment he took a seat behind the team bench, the Philippines outscored their opponents 38-19.

Clarkson’s arrival culminated a complicated series of events that drew in the NBA, the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, the Philippine Olympic Committee, and the Asian Games organizers, as the NBA initially refused to give the go-signal to his participation. However, in the end, the league relented, and here we are.

Underprepared Basketball Philippines still impresses vs. Kazakhs.

Nelson Beltran ( – August 16, 2018 – 3:11pm

JAKARTA – Though short in preparation and workforce, the Philippine quintet made quite an impression in its initial showing in the 18th Asian Games men’s basketball competition, fashioning out a dominant wire-to-wire 96-59 victory over a hapless Kazakhstan side at the GBK Basketball Hall here Thursday.

Stanley Pringle came out with a sterling performance in his debut as a national player. Simultaneously, Christian Standhardinger, James Yap, Paul Lee, and Chris Tiu had their solid showings in their return to the national squad, leading the Philippine 5 to a smashing first outing Jakarta meeting.

Gabe Norwood, Raymond Almazan, Poy Erram, Beau Belga, Maverick Ahanmisi, and even 45-year-old reserve center Asi Taulava put in their share; the Nationals carved out the important victory that all, however, assured them of a spot in the knockout round (Final Eight).


And on that note, how awesome was Guiao. He should replace Chot Reyes as a national coach permanently cause she showed even with depleted numbers, he still pulled off a win against highly favored Kazakhstan. And not just a win a pummelling. I bet nobody thought we would win by that much over Kazakhstan. Purely awesome the Philippines ‘ very own Chiang Kai Shek and master of strategy. I bet a copy of the Art of War by Sun Tsu was in his bag.

How the first all-pro 1990 Dream Team brought back Asian Games glory

When FIBA formally allowed professional basketball players in international competitions in 1989 with its “open basketball” ruling, the exciting prospect was really witnessing the best cagers to play for their country came true.

And this became such welcome news for the Philippines, given the dearth of competitiveness in world basketball. A case in point was the 1989 Southeast Asian Games, wherein the Philippines lost the gold for the first time in the biennial cage meet to hosts Malaysia after an embarrassing 99-107 loss.

Something had to be done, and the FIBA ruling could not have come at a better time.

“Dream Team”

The country’s basketball governing body, the Basketball Association of the Philippines, immediately forged a deal with the PBA to send only the best Philippine team for the next major international tilt, the 1990 Asian Games in Beijing.

Thus, the Philippine “Dream Team” consisted of an all-star dream selection of PBA players, half of which became part of the PBA’s 25 Greatest Players lists several years later.

The team consisted of active players who were making waves in the PBA at that time, including Mon Fernandez, Hector Calma, Samboy Lim, and Yves Dignadice of the Grand Slam-winning San Miguel Beermen, Chito Loyzaga, Dante Gonzalgo, and the late Rey Cuenco of the most popular Anejo Rhum squad, Benjie Paras and Ronnie Magsanoc of Formula Shell, Allan Caidic and Zaldy Realubit of Presto Tivoli, and Alvin Patrimonio of Purefoods Hotdogs.

Jerry Codinera was originally part of the final lineup However had to beg off due to a bout with hepatitis and was replaced by Realubit. Nelson Asaytono and Paul Alvarez were named alternates. Unfortunately, however, we’re unable to join the team in Beijing.

Clarkson withdraws from Batang Gilas

by Ernest Hernandez

According to sources, the final push to include Jordan Clarkson in the Gilas Pilipinas Asian Games roster suffered a big blow after the NBA did not clear him to join the competition.

The NBA has cited no reason. However, the Cleveland Cavaliers guard has been in trade rumors and could be why he didn’t get the nod while Houston Rockets’ Zhou Qi was allowed to play for China.

TNT Katropa’s Don Trollano will instead replace Clarkson for the final roster spot. After that, the team will head out to Indonesia on August 12.

Narvasa: Will he be fired?

November 02, 2017


EXPECT fireworks when the PBA Board convenes today for a special meeting to decide whether Chito Narvasa will stay as commissioner.

The meeting starts at 8 a.m. at the league offices in Libis, Quezon City, with all 12 members expected to be present.

A long, arduous discussion is expected, with Narvasa’s backers reportedly ready to defend him by asking for a vote of confidence, which requires eight votes.

“The process should drag on,” noted one governor who requested anonymity, pointing out the question would center on whether it’s simply renewal or a case of firing.

According to Al Panlilio, Meralco’s representative to the PBA Board, the league’s best interest is the primary consideration.

“We are all thinking about what’s best for the league, and his performance we would gauge the last two years as commissioner,” Panlilio told Malaya-Business Insight yesterday.

Narvasa came under heavy for approving the controversial trade between Kia and San Miguel Beer viewed as too lopsided. The trade gave the already loaded Beermen the rights to Picanto’s top pick overall, which we used to tab Fil-German Christian Standhardinger.  In return, Kia got some role players and a future draft pick.
