    Pirates welcome back Cameroonian Mbida, add to Letran Knights' misery


    A REINFORCED Lyceum compounded the early misery of Letran as it held off the Knights, 74-70, on Friday to register in the win column of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.

    With one of their Cameroonian reinforcements, Guy Mbida, surprisingly back in the fold and Jeremiah Taldua now healthy from a viral infection, the Pirates bucked an early deficit before showing steely resolve down the stretch.

    The Pirates thus notched a first win after dropping their first assignment against Arellano, while dealing the Knights, last year’s runner-up, second successive defeat.

    “It’s all about mental toughness,” Pirates coach Bonnie Tan said. “Medyo nagkulang kami sa rotation before, pero ngayon hindi na kasi yung two players natin, bumalik na.”

    But it was Dexter Zamora who shone brightest with 16 points, including 11 in the second quarter where the Pirates turned the game around, while Wilson Baltazar was on target with three triples and Shane Ko ably aided Zamora in quarterbacking the squad.

    Mbida, who was suddenly activated after initially being him from the lineup over what Tan felt were “demands” he had with compatriot Aziz Mbomiko, delivered in his debut with a double-double of 15 points and 12 boards. The Cameroonian forward fired nine of his scoring output in the fourth quarter, where the Pirates pounced on the Knights’ crucial turnovers to pull off the stunning victory against an Intramuros rival.

    The scores:

    LPU 74 – Zamora 16, Baltazar 15, Mbida 15, Ko 10, Bulawan 6, Gabayni 5, Soliman 3, Taladua 2, Maconocido 2, Pamulaklakin 0, Lesmoras 0, Elmejrab 0

    CSJL 70 – Racal 13, Gabawan 11, Singontiko 11, Publico 11, Cruz 6, Quinto 5, Luib 3, Castro 2, Ruaya 2, Tambeling 2, Dela Pena 2, Nambatac 2, Calvo 0, Apreku 0 Quarterscores: 13-21, 39-35, 55-52, 74-70 Follow the writer on Twitter: @KarloSacamos More on this story

    Lyceum’s Mbida returns to help Pirates shoot down Letran Knights

    Lyceum Pirate Wilson Baltazar goes for a three-pointer against Letran’s Kevin Racal. KC Cruz


    A reinforced Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates team compounded the early misery of the College of Letran Knights, as they held off their foes, 74-70, on Friday for its first win of the season in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    With one of their Cameroonian reinforcements, Guy Mbida, surprisingly back in the fold and Jeremiah Taldua now healthy from a viral infection, the Pirates bucked an early deficit before showing steely resolve down the stretch.

    The Pirates thus notched their first win, after dropping their first assignment against the Arellano University Chiefs, while dealing the Knights, last year’s runner-up, their second successive defeat.

    “It’s all about mental toughness,” Pirates coach Bonnie Tan said. “Medyo nagkulang kami sa rotation before, pero ngayon hindi na kasi yung two players natin, bumalik na.”

    NCAA launches inquiry into 'demands' of Pirates' foreign players

    THE NCAA has launched an inquiry into comments made by Lyceum coach Bonnie Tan over certain "demands" made by the Pirates' foreign players, which raised a red flag over the compensation these student athletes receive from league teams.

    In a June 30 interview with Spin.ph, Tan admitted that team management decided to drop Cameroonian players Aziz Mbomiko and Guy Mbida from the Pirates' roster at the last minute after the team and the foreigners failed to find a middle ground on "certain principles."

    Asked to expound on the principles disagreed upon, Tan cited certain “demands” that taller, touted foreign recruits usually get that Mbida and Mbomiko are trying to negotiate with Lyceum.

    Although the issue has since been ironed out, with the rookie Mbida making his debut in the Pirates’ 74-70 win over Letran last Friday, the league’s management committee has continued an inquiry into the matter, asking Tan to explain his comments.

    ManCom chair Paul Supan said Tan's comments have raised concerns. “Vinerify lang yung mga statements kasi una pang lumabas (sa media) bago kami na-inform, so hindi namin alam yung status ng players,” Supan told Spin.ph.

    “We just asked if the statements there are true.” Lyceum and Tan have since submitted a letter to explain the school's side, but Supan said the league has yet to discuss the reply of the Intramuros-based school, which is in its final probationary year and is looking to become a regular league member next season.

    The Jose Rizal University ManCom representative admitted that the Pirates coach’s comments somehow left an “effect” on the league. “In a way, yes, (naapektuhan). Hindi naman namin i-ve-verify (yung statements) kung walang effect sa NC.”

    Being an amateur/collegiate league, the NCAA forbids the practice of compensating players in exchange for their services. Schools are allowed to offer full scholarships, accommodation, and allowances but nothing more.
