JRU WILL BOUNCE BACK!!!!!! BIG TIME!!!!!!
coach give agas lopez and apinan more playing time!!!!!!!
Hi I'm alumnus of JRU and Im glad to know that we have our own forum. Hope that we manage to get our alumni united to support our Alma mater. It sad to know that we lost 2 games from Letran and SSC-R so what we need is consistency and no matter what, we just have to bounce back, figure things out. This is what this game was about. This game determined where we are, we took on that challege and we're still standing.
I know RIZALIANS do ordinary things with EXTRAORDINARY results.
^agree 1000% makakabawi din. ganyan talaga nagpapabugbog muna ang bida bago rumesbak at pagtiwala na silang kaya nila HEAVY BOMBERS tsaka reresbak at sisilatin sila.
WUHUHU PANALO DAW TAU AGAINST BENILDE I HOPE THIS WOULD BE THE START OF MANY GREAT THINGS THIS SEASON for OUR BELOVED JRU
WOW glad to know that we won against Benilde too bad it was not televised. But just to ensure that we're heading the right direction teamwork and consistency are very important. Also be at your best when the best is needed.
Powerhouse Bombers want consistency

Over the summer, coach Ariel Vanguardia set a clear direction for the Jose Rizal Bombers.
"We want to achieve what we didn't accomplish last year and that is to get the twice-to-beat advantage (in the semifinals)," said Vanguardia.
And Vanguardia knows very well how the Bombers -- who are still powered by top trio John Wilson, Marvin Hayes and Marc Cagoco -- can tread the path to the Final Four.
"Our main concern is consistency," said Vanguardia. "We had losses early on in the first round last year. If we avoided that, we could have gotten the twice-to-beat advantage. From the start, we have to be consistent."
A surprise run late in the elimination round last seaon propelled the Bombers to third place before the Letran Knights ended their bid in the Final Four.
"I think we've matured," noted Vanguardia. "Hopefully, our maturity will help us get to the next level."
Also returning for the Bombers are veterans JR Sena, Maui Pradas, Raycon Kabigting and John Montemayor.
But Vanguardia is clearly excited about their five freshmen led by Nchoto John Njei, a 6-foot-1 swingman from Cameroon, and Filipino-American guard Nathan Matute.
"Njei is more of a defensive player, he'll help us a lot on hustle," said Vanguardia. "He's very aggressive. He just tried out in the team. Nathan is also just a walk-in."
Other promising finds are Jecster Apinan, former Light Bomber Derico Lopez and Alex Almario of Bulacan State U.
"Our goal is to be in the top two and take it from there," said Vanguardia.
Unfortunately We Lost To Baste!!! Pero Ok Lang @ Straight Wins Na Hope Ko Lang Manalo Tau Sa Beda!!!
