The Games That Play Us: New King Archer?
DLSU GREEN ARCHERS over UE RED WARRIORS, 67-59
When UE’s Adrian Santos hit a short stab to cut the deficit to a solitary point, 50-51, with less than 7 minutes left, not a few La Sallians probably felt a little anxious. Perhaps they entertained thoughts of their team succumbing to the same jarring fate that befell their archrivals earlier in the day.
Instead, they witnessed the second installment of the evolving Jeron Teng saga.
After Santos trimmed the gap to just 1, Teng scored 5 points in a decisive 12-0 run in the fourth quarter that all but negated UE’s spirited challenge. The resulting 13-point La Salle lead was the biggest of the game, as neither team was really able to breakaway before that juncture.
UE was actually the first team to scatter a bunch of points, leading 8-3 mid-first period. Mainly behind Teng and fellow rookie Thomas Torres, however, the Archers rallied and ended the quarter enjoying a 2-point lead, 13-11.
Thanks to Santos and the brilliant play of former Letran Squire Roi Sumang, the Reds of coach Jerry Codiñera stuck to DLSU, always within striking distance. Sumang was awesome again in this game as he scored 20 points on top of 5 boards, 3 dimes, and 3 triples. His timely hits in the second and third stanzas prevented the Green & White from pulling away. The prolific guard, though, never scored again after hitting a three late in the third canto.
De La Salle did such a good job limiting Sumang in the last 10 minutes that, technically speaking, he didn’t contribute anything to the UE cause in the fourth period. That is, unless you count one missed shot and one turnover as significant contributions.
In contrast, Sumang’s green counterpart, LA Revilla, was once again quite impressive. Revilla picked up from where he left off last Sunday, hitting shots, grabbing rebounds, and distributing the ball. Overall, the La Salle playmaker remained steady with 11 points, 6 rebounds, and 4 assists while shooting 2-of-2 from rainbow country. He did, however, commit 4 turnovers.
One curious thing was Norbert Torres playing just 13 minutes because of foul trouble. Last week’s best big man scored just 3 points on 1-of-4 FG shooting, while collecting just 4 caroms and 1 assist. Jovet Mendoza and Arnold Van Opstal, though, shored up the middle quite well, combining for 16 markers and 13 rebounds all in all. What this shows very clearly is that La Salle’s frontline is more than just Torres’s bulky physique.
For UE, it’s also quite clear that Roi Sumang is the be-all and end-all of the Warriors. He is to the Recto squad what LA Tenorio once was for the early 2000s Ateneo teams. Sumang is at an unenviable position, having to both score and distribute the ball in quality fashion. I doubt he’ll be able to score 20+ points in every encounter, but he will be a significant factor, and constant headache, in every game for UE. Their next game? The Soaring Falcons on Saturday.
Yes, it’s just two games in for La Salle, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist, nor an armchair analyst, to see that Jeron Teng looks to be as good as advertised. New ABS-CBN Sports commentator Charles Tiu mentioned in the telecast how scoring is the best thing Teng does. La Salle can count on him to score aplenty this season, and, more importantly, the Greenies can also count on the young former Xaverian to be someone the Archers have sorely lacked the past few seasons – a consistent clutch performer, a guy who’ll give DLSU a chance to win in every game.
Throughout the past three or four seasons, ever since JV Casio and Rico Maierhofer both graduated, there has seemed to be a leadership vacuum in the La Salle roster. With Teng in the fold and playing without the requisite nerves lesser rookies are bound to have, it looks like the Taft five may have found its new leader – a leader who may not be very vocal (leave that to Revilla), but a leader who won’t shy away from the critical moments (in fact, Jeron seems to chase after these moments).
Maybe it’s still too early to name Teng as the new King Archer, but it’s easy to see he is exactly what La Salle has been looking for.

0 - 2 na UE RED WARRIORS wala pa ring HIMALA!!!! kailan kaya maaalis ang sumpa ng pagiging talunan!!!!
watched the replay. ue red warlols. andaming broken plays, passes, shots. si sumang konting aggressiveness pa baka magkainjury na yan. sana maganda ang conditioning niya, ipahinga kahit konti, bigay todo, sagad na sa buto eh.
Lakas ng DLSU, 2-0 agad.....OH WAIT!!
UP at UE??
Kaya sana ipanalo ng team ang game na ito.
Eto lang mga napansin ko
1. Poor Perimeter Defense(since Jerry's day 1)
Ilang beses pinabayaan sina Vosotross at Revilla sa tres, eh mga shooter yun. Nakashoot na pinapabayaan pa din. Di man lang nakapag-adjust. Sakit talaga to ng team since Day 1 ni Jerry. Hindi ko alam kung pinapa-sag nya ang depensa sa gitna para sa rebound kasi kulang tayo sa malalaki.
2. Useless fouls
Ang daming And-1 ng DLSU, yung mga tipong fou-foulin pa nila kahit nakatakas na sa depensa yung player ng DLSU. Mas maganda kung pinabayaan na lang yung mga yun, hindi pa sila nakafree-throw di pa nadagdagan yung team fouls, hindi tayo mapepenalty kagad.
Sana kung magbibigay ng foul eh yung siguradong di na makakashoot. 4-5 And-1 plays ang binigay natin sa DLSU. That's 4-5 free-throw points para sa DLSU. Imagine mo, 4 lang yung lamang. Tapos ang dami pa nating free-throws na di nashoot.
3. Puro Iso plays kay Sumang
Sumang is a great scorer. But he must also let his other teammates work.bMay 1 play na libre si Galanza(na naka 2 basket before that play) di nya pinasahan at diniretso lang nya that resulted to a turnover. Dapat maging pass-first pg muna sya. Tiwala lang sa mga kakampi. Maganda yung pinapakita nina Olayon at Galanza.
Ang daming plays na pagkapasa ni Sumang ibabalik kagad sa kanya.
4. Rotation, rotation, rotation,
Ang gulo talaga ng rotation ni Coach Jerry. Hindi tama yung mga adjustments nya sa ginagawa ng kalaban. Magugulat ka na lang naghahabol tayo ilalabas yung mga umiiskor. Tsk.
I have to commend Adrian Santos for his double-double efforts, and also Sumang.
Consistency lang from Santos and Sumang. Sana mabigyan pa ng plays si Olayon at Galanza. They can score if given the chance.
Villarias also showed flashes of what he can do.
Yung nawawala eh yung mga veterans. Flores, Duran, Sumido gising!
Si Hernandez, sana bigyan din ng playing time. Sobrang laki ng improvement nito sa off-season. Masipag magrebound at mataas tumalon. Gamitin mo naman coach. I'll prefer Hernandez over Razon any time of the day.
Sana makasilat mamya against the Adamson Falcons.
Go Fight Red and White!
OH MY! My Jeron Teng is soooooo in the zone...except for his poor free throw shooting. I hope that his A-game will show against the Tamaraws later.
1. team defense (perimeter and transition) - matamlay talaga at malamya something is lacking in our players yung intensity, tapang at angas
2. Rotation - magulo talaga last year wala pa rin pagbabago
3. very predictable na yung offense puro SUMANG iso play, wala ba post play, pick and roll, ball screen, motion offense
4. Players development - what happen to Ivan Hernandez sayang yung potential nya and also Chris Javier. Si SUMIDO ewan ko ba kung bakit malaki playing time nito eh liability naman sa defense.
All of the above points to the weakness ng Coaching Staff at ng Head Coach
yung coaching skills ni Jerry higly questionable na unless he starts winning (which i doubt against ADMU, ADU, FEU & UST) baka nga sa UP eh matalo pa tayo.
When you check his win - loss records as a head coach from PBL, PBA-DL and UAAP yung panalo nya baka di pa umabot ng 10 games. wala syang winning records as a Head Coach, as part of the coaching staff ng UP under coach Aboy meron sya 0 - 14 once or twice (not sure though)
and he might be the worst Head Coach of UE RW in UAAP Campaign in UE history
sorry to all UE RW SUPPORTERS medyo nawalan na ko ng pagasa that we will improve this season 75. STILL NO IMPROVEMENT malabo na yata maka 3 panalo tayo just like last year.
maybe and just maybe baka 2 panalo lang (wag naman 0 -14)
SO HELP US GOD
