UAAP Starting 5: Week 8

first_imgThe king is back and he brought back the same form that made him the UAAP’s most formidable force.After a lackluster week prior to this one, Ben Mbala wreaked havoc like no one other than himself can.The reigning MVP put up 21 points and 12.5 rebounds to lead La Salle to two wins this week.Forward: Alvin Pasaol (University of the East Red Warriors)ADVERTISEMENT Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 MOST READ Although Alvin Pasaol was limited to a season-low eight points against Ateneo, Pasaol still averaged a respectable 15.5 points in the two games this week while averaging eight rebounds.Oh, and Pasaol’s struggles on the field against the Blue Eagles was the product of pure defense Ateneo employed on him.Plus, Pasaol’s 23 points against La Salle were scored with Mbala playing as his main defender.Forward: Thirdy Ravena (Ateneo Blue Eagles)It’s a fact that Thirdy Ravena can straight up ball—and not just on the offense.Ravena was a major factor why Pasaol put up his worst offensive output this season, hounding UE’s star pretty much the whole way with Vince Tolentino helping in the flanks.And Ravena put up an efficient 17-point, eight-rebound, four-assist afternoon while shooting 67 percent from the field in 19 minutes of play.Guard: Jerrick Ahanmisi (Adamson University Falcons) Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Honorable mentionsRicci Rivero (De La Salle Green Archers)As Ben Mbala returned to form, Ricci Rivero promptly took the backseat.Rivero, though, still produced more than respectable numbers of 14.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, three assists, and three steals in La Salle’s two wins this week.Marvin Lee (University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers)Alright, forget wins for a second because Marvin Lee looked like the lone Growling Tiger from University of Santo Tomas who put up a fight.Lee was awfully quiet in UST’s 75-70 loss to Adamson as Growling Tigers head coach Boy Sablan preferred to have Oliver De Guzman as the main point guard.Against La Salle, however, Lee felt the pressure of an impending 0-14 season that he singlehandedly dogged a UST fight despite losing by 35, 94-59.Lee scored a game-high 25 points, on 10-of-20 shooting, while grabbing seven rebounds.Those numbers, though, doesn’t hold justice to Lee’s efforts since the UST captain visibly tried to hold his emotions when the final buzzer sounded.

Devance relishes break from guarding hulking Smith

first_imgGinebra’s Joe Devance. Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netJoe Devance heaved a sigh of relief after getting a short break from defending the heftier Joshua Smith Thursday night.Smith played just nine minutes before complaining on a pain on his right foot, forcing TNT to go all-Filipino from the midway point of the second quarter to the end of the game.ADVERTISEMENT “Just the minutes that I had on him was tough. He’s huge, he’s the biggest player I played, by far,” said Devance, who was tasked to battle Smith for the series.Without the hulking reinforcement, Ginebra ran away with a 125-101 win to take Game 3 and avoid a sweep, extending the series to another do-or-die Game 4 on Saturday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutDevance also took advantage of the chance as the veteran forward had much more gas to contribute to the cause of the squad and finished with 10 points, five rebounds, and three assists in the victory.But he hopes nothing but the best for Smith, saying: “He’s a great player, he seems like a great guy, and he plays well in their system. I heard he got injured. I hope it’s nothing serious.” Regardless of the situation surrounding TNT’s reinforcement, Devance believes that the Gin Kings were just the better team in Game 3. “I think we played a lot better and I think we’re more prepared today. In both games, we had chances to win the game and I just think we had mental lapses. Today, we kind of manned up, had each other’s backs, and played a lot better,” he said.Devance is looking to ride this wave of momentum going to Game 4 on Saturday, where he expects a loud Cuneta Astrodome crowd to back Ginebra in the do-or-die tiff.“It’s rowdy at Cuneta and it’s always for us. But we just got to go out here and get this next game,” he said. “I’m not worried about Game 5, I’m worried about Game 4. We got to get this Game 4, play harder, play smarter, play together, and we’ll see what happens.”ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games 1 dead in Cavite blast, fire LATEST STORIES NBA: Warriors spend $150K on champagne at nightclub after title win View comments Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextcenter_img Heart Evangelista admits she’s pregnant… with chicken Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
