    ARCHERS, TPC ALL STARS WIN OPENER
    By Francis Malicdem


    The Archers Basketball and TPC All Stars pulled off confidence building wins at the opening day of the 1st PinoyEXchange.com Invitational Basketball Tournament at the Meralco Gym Saturday night.

    The Archers relied on the hot shooting hands of Daniel Martinez in the early goings before leaning on the clutch baskets of Anthony Castro and Ron Nineza to defeat the Espana Alligators 65-59.



    The Archers raced to an early lead in the first period as their speedy guards took control of the tempo while the Alligators were still groping for form trying to find out the combinations that will click for them.

    As game progressed the same story was witnessed as the Archers who after pulling ahead by 8 to 10 markers will suddenly fall silent giving the Alligators the opportunity to come back in the game


    The Gators got a break when Martinez suddenly had to leave the game in the 3rd period due to emergency and the Alligators capitalized this

    In the fourth period they almost completed the comeback with Jay Maala and Arvy Trinidad leading the Alligators to cut the deficit to just 2 with less than 3 mins remain

    But suddenly the Archers woke up with Castro and Nineza drilling back breaking 3 pointers while Daven Galindez scored a layin to give the Archers a 10 point lead with 2 minutes remaining.



    In the nightcap the TPC All Stars survived the hard fighting MyPBA.com Black Hawk Down 83-79




    Raymond Alborte and Rafael Osorio stood tall for TPC as they combined for 46 points in the game

    Alborte using his heft advantage was nearly unstoppable in the shaded lane while Osorio's daredevil drives had the other team scratching their heads.

    TPC started the game on fire scoring the game's first 12 points as Mypba were caught flatfooted but as the game progressed, The Black Hawk Down found their groove with Robin Galang waxing hot in the 2nd period with 11 markers giving the Mypba Selection a 45-40 lead at the break.




    TPC then went on the attack mode in the third period with Osorio leading the way and regained the upperhand at 60-58

    MyPBA then went on a 6-0 run at the start of the fourth to get the lead back but TPC calmly settled down and returned the favor to take the lead.

    The Red and Yellow team then further increased their lead to 7 at 77-70 as Black Hawk Down succumb to pressure which resulted to back to back turnovers.

    MyPBA tried to get back at the game but they consecutively missed their 3 point attempts which sealed their fate in the game.

    The PinoyEXchange.com Invitationals is organized by One Unite Sports and supported by The Sicilian Express and Beach Hut with media partner: Basketball TV

    FRIDAY ELITE SHOCKS STAGES.
    MOBSTERS DEMOLISH INCONTACT.
    Written by Francis Malicdem




    Friday Night Elite provided the tournament's first shocker as it upset one of the pre tournament favorites Stages Construction 62-49 at the 2nd gameday of the 1st

    PinoyEXchange.com Basketball Invitationals at the Makati Coliseum Monday night.


    Beau Fajahat scored 12 of his 16 points in the pivotal 4th period as the Elite took over the game by running past the Stages.

    At the start, it seemed that the Stages had the game in the bag leading comfortably by at least 10 points courtesy of the hot shooting of Carlo Franco



    But things turned around starting in the 3rd period when Elite made their run slowly but surely chipping away the lead of the Stages.

    They completed the comeback in the last quarter as they dropped a 10-1 bomb to leave the Stages behind at 50-41.


    Franco tried to engineer a comeback for the Stages with a three point play to help the Stages inch closer at 50-44 but Elite would not be denied this game as they finished the game with a 12-5 run.



    In the second game, the Sicilian Express Mobsters demolished Incontact 112-63

    Incontact who came to the game with only 7 players were no match to the Mobsters as they were held scoreless in the first period, setting a league record for least

    points scored in a quarter.

    Incontact was only able to break the dry spell after 2 minutes of the 2nd quarter.

    Rusty Magpoc led the scoring of the Mobsters with 25 points while Jeremy Dela Cruz supported him with 18.

    With their respective wins, Elite and Mobsters joined TPC Selection and Archers Basketball on top of the team standings with a 1-0 win loss record.

    ARCHERS, TPC ALL STARS REMAIN UNBEATEN
    My PBA.com on a roll

    By Francis Malicdem

    Team Archers and TPC All Stars kept their unblemished record intact in the 1st PinoyEXchange.com Invitationals after defeating their respective opponents last Saturday at the Makati Coliseum

    The TPC team withstood the big game of ESP Aligators' Joby Primicias to come away with an 87-76 win in the first game of the triple header

    Miguel Claudio topscored for the TPC team with 21 points including 14 in the crucial 4th period as he helped his TPC restore order as Team ESP were trying to knock on their door

    Claudio got help from slotman Raymond Alborte who finished with 19 markers while Arnich Esperas had 15

    Primcias meanwhile topscored for the ESP with 29 points while Raymond Jorge and James Ilagan had 15 and 10 points respectively

    In the second game, The Archers went through the eye of the needle before defeating the pesky Team Incontact 89-84 in Overtime.

    Waf Fabie imposed his will in the shaded lane as he scored 27 points in the game but it was Lou Abad who came to the rescue for the Archers scoring 7 of his 18 points in Overtime.

    The Incontact team who had been losing by a very big margin in their previous games, surprised the ARchers with their energy as they stuck close with the league leaders all through out the game led by their scoring guard Jun Herrera who finished with 31 points.

    But the Archers maintained their composure in the crucial strech of the game to come away with the victory.

    Aside from Fabie and Abad, Anthony Castro and Daven Galindez contributed with 19 points apiece

    In the main game, My PBA.com Black Hawk Down notched their its second straight win after beating Team Mobsters 83-69

    Robin Galang waxed hot in the third period as he scored key baskets which broke the game wide open while his team's defense tightened limiting the Mobster to just 5 points

    Galang topscored for the Black Hawk Down with 17 points While Jasper Arceo and Paolo Sanguyo had 15 and 12 points for the My PBA.com team

    Allan Dator was lone bright spot for the Mobsters as he scored 23 points including 15 from the rainbow territory.

    Action resumes this Tuesday at the RFM Gym with Stages battling the Incontact at 8:15 pm while The Archers meet the sliding Mobsters at 9:40 pm

    DAY OF THE UNDERMANNED
    By Francis Malicdem


    January 24, 2012 will be known as day of the undermanned in the PinoyEXchange.com Invitationals.

    This after Stages Construction and Team Archers won over their respective opponents despite having only 5 players suit up in the game.

    The Stages survive the winless but hard fighting Incontact 63-54 to move up in the team standings

    Carlo Franco saved the day for the Stages as he scored the last 9 points of his team to help the Stages get the win.

    It was an exciting game as both teams exchange spurts with Incontact waxing hot first in the first quarter before Stages staged their run.

    That run saw the Stages take a commanding 32-21 and 41-28 lead in the third period.


    But the never say die attitude of Incontact suddenly woke up and led by their diminutive guard Jun Herrera, the Incontact roared back to the game and took the lead at 47-45 with 5 mins and 30 seconds left in the game.

    But the Stages quickly tied the game with a quick basket followed by Franco and Jericho Ilagan's baskets which gave the oranged striped jersey team a 6 point lead at 53-47.

    Incontact's Yellah then took matters in his own hands scoring back to back baskets to cut the lead of the Stages to just two at 53-51

    After 2 freebies by Franco, the Incontact then connected from the rainbow territory to inch closer at 55-54.

    Franco then took matters in his own hands by scoring key baskets in the last two minutes while the Stages shut down the offense of Incontact

    Franco led the Stages with 25 markers while Herrera topscored for the Incontact team with 27 points including 16 in the third period alone.

    In the nightcap, Team Archers got the solo leadership in the team standings after demolishing Team Mobsters 91-78

    Lou Abad shot the lights out as he scored 34 points including 17 points in the fourth period

    The Archers took control of the game early and while the Mobsters appeared to close the gap several times, the Archers lead by Abad and Dan Martinez would then frustrate their opponents with timely baskets.

    The Mobsters would then try to speed up the tempo but the Archers would counter it with pricise ball movement and shooting.


    FIRST GAME

    STAGEs 63- Franco 25, Paule 16, Ilagan Jer 13, Ilagan Jen 7 Alabanza 4

    Friday Night Elite and Stages Design and Construction shocked the favored top seeds to enter the finals of the PinoyExchange.com Invitational League

    PEXBALL MVP Michael Bryan Soliven drilled a 3 pointer with 2 seconds left to help the Elite escape an 82-81 win over the top seed TPC All Stars.

    The Elite actually took the early lead in the game until the Team TPC led by Rafael Osorio , Raymond Alborte and Arinich Espinas suddenly woke up in the 3rd quarter and turned the tables around.

    From there it was a tight game until the TPC gained an 8 point lead in the last 2 minutes of the game

    The Elite slowly crawled its way back and with determination and luck on their side, the Friday boys staged the improbable comeback

    Meanwhile the Stages Contrcutions completed the day of the underdogs as they defeated 2nd seeded Team Archers 105-101

    Former collegiate standouts Erick Arejola and JA Coching waxed hot in the 4th period as they hit crucial 3 pointers that helped the Stages come back from a huge deficit early in the fourth period.

    The Archers had a last chance to turn the things around late in the quarter but the Stages relied on its defense to shut down the 2nd seeded team.

    Coching scored 30 big points including 6 3pointers while Arejola scored 15 of his 23 points from the trifecta to push the Stages to the Championship Round

    It was a sorry defeat for the Archers who were led by the sweet shooting Daniel Martinez with 29 markers followed by Lou Abad who finished with 28.

    ELITE VS STAGES The Unexpected Finals Matchup

    Things couldnt get better than this.

    For the Friday Night Elite and Stages Design and Construction, reaching the finals of The PinoyExchange.com Invitationals would be the farthest thing in their minds especially after seeing top seeds Team Archers and TPC All Stars dominate the playing field early on in the eliminations.

    In fact, for the Elite, they both lost to the top seeds in the elims while the Stages struggled with attendance thus both falling in the team standings early on

    But as the season progressed the two teams showed their determination and finished 3rd and 5th respectively in the team standings.

    The Elite then demolished the hapless Mobsters in the quarterfinals while Stages did their job and registered an amazing come from behind victory over MyPBA.com Black Hawk Down.

    In the semifinals, both encountered huge roadblocks in Archers and TPC but the two teams overcame the challenge and won their respective semifinal matches in come from behind fashion.

    With the wins, the two set up in what is expected to be a slam bang championship game where every possession counts, every plays matter and every second is important.

    The Elite will rely on main men Beau Pajahat, Mike Soliven and JR Lozada while Stages has their own big three in JA Coching, Erick Arejola and Paul Franco

    It's Friday Night Elite vs. Stages Design and Construction for the championship of PinoyExchange.com Invitationals at the APC Gym this Saturday.
