Mukhang di na baste ang bad boys ngayong season. Mababait na players namin. Siguro si the beast na lang ang kailangang i temper dahil sa "emotions". Balik na sa Letran ang bad boys tag. First game pa lang nila muntikang riot na! One unit gumalaw ang 5 manlalarong stags pag nasa loob. Patay kayo sa amin bedaboys.
Tama prediction ko so far. SBC, SSC-R, MIT and CSJL. Nagulat lang ako sa talo ng cardinals kahapon. Contained yung bigman nila. Good game kay kevin alas. Reliable inside si Jam Cortez. Pero masyado siya maliit sa center position. Goodluck na lang sa ibang teams. Bravo!!
Tama na yan, sa War Thread na lang kayo mang-troll!
Rampaging Generals rally past Chiefs

THE Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals pulled off a stunner for the ages, storming back to score 34 points in the fourth quarter to upend bitter rival Arellano University, 84-77 in NCAA Season 87 last July 4, 2011 at the Arena in San Juan City.
Reenergized by a trio of new recruits, the 2011 Generals looked nothing like last season’s version, refusing to be put away and providing a memorable fightback at the expense of their hated foes. One of those recruits, Jolas Paguia, a former FEU-FERN Baby Tamaraw and showbiz personality, led all scorers with 22 points off the bench, making nine out of his 14 shots, and adding nine rebounds and two blocks. The 22-year old rookie was a key part of a 19-2 EAC fourth quarter rally that saw three big triples in succession, one each from Paguia, Milan Vargas and Jan Jamon that turned a nine-point Arellano lead into a 69-61 deficit for the Chiefs with a little more than five minutes left to play.
Unfazed, Arellano fought back, starting with a jumper by Rocky Acidre, and five straight points by Season 86 Mythical Five selection Andrian Celada to get to within a point, 69-68. Both squads traded baskets before Paguia launched another triple with no hesitation to extend EAC’s cushion to five, 78-73 with a minute left on the clock.
After back-to-back turnovers by both teams, Kim Pagayunan found himself at the line after grabbing a missed Acidre triple. But the reserve guard could only halve his charities with 27.7 seconds left to play. Vargas then nailed a clutch layup in transition to extend the lead to six, 80-74. Arellano center Prince Caperal nailed a triple with 15 seconds left to play to cut the deficit to three, 80-77, before Franz Chiong hit both free throws off a Chiefs foul to seal the game.
Vargas, who was injured for much of the preseason, tallied 18 points and five assists in support of Paguia, while Jan Jamon added 15 markers. Freshmen guards Igee King and Joshua Torralba combined for 12 points, five rebounds and five assists in their NCAA debut.
It was the first win for head coach Gerry Esplana since taking over for the team last season with three games to go, prompting him to joke, “The monkey’s off my back. I’m relieved”.
“There’s a lot of pressure handling an NCAA team. Half of the team are rookies…but this is part of the long-term building of the basketball program of Emilio Aguinaldo College,” the former pro added.
Acidre led the Chiefs with 21 points. Celada scored 15 and tallied seven rebounds and five assists, while Vergel Zulueta chipped in with 13 markers, another seven boards and three dimes. But both Celada and Zulueta were a combined 0-for-9 from beyond the arc for the Chiefs, who blew a 59-45 advantage late in the third quarter.
A combination of “opening day jitters,” according to Esplana, and Arellano’s tough zone defense made it hard for the Generals to score over the first three quarters of the game. EAC adjusted by making a concentrated effort to run more in the fourth, and the decision paid dividends, as 10 of their 34 fourth quarter points came off fastbreaks.
EAC 84 – Paguia 22, Vargas 18, Jamon 15, Cubo 7, King 7, Torralba 5, Yaya 3, Morada 3, Sanchez 2, Chiong 2, Diolanto 0.
Arellano 77 – Acidre 21, Celada 15, Zulueta 13, Caperal 12, Lapuz 7, Pagayunan 5, Palma 2, Gumaru 2, Okpe 0, Casiño 0
