    San Sebastian notches first win, keeps Southwestern U. winless
    Job B. De LeonApril 22, 2013 2:45pm

    (Updated 5:10pm) The San Sebastian College-Recoletos Golden Stags evened their record in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Preseason Cup, defeating the winless Southwestern University Cobras, 84-73, Monday, at the FilOil Flying V Arena.

    The Cobras, hailing from Cebu's CESAFI league, showed progress in getting acclimated to the level of competition in the Manila-based tourney. But Leo De Vera and the rest of the Stags were there to fend off Southwestern U's rallies, turning them away at key moments and leading by no less than four points in the second half to keep the win.

    The Stags now sport a 1-1 record, while Southwestern U has lost all four of their games so far in Group B play.

    Jon Rebollos led all scorers with 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting. De Vera added 18 points, while Jovit Dela Cruz had 13 points and six assists. Raffy Gusi notched 11 markers, while Jaymark Perez had 10 points, 10 rebounds and four steals.

    We're trying out our wing combinations since this is what's left of our team from last year. We're a bunch of no-namers and it's something we take pride in," said Stags head coach Topex Robinson.

    Last year, San Sebastian graduated its "Pinatubo Trio," the core group of Calvin Abueva, Ian Sangalang and Ronald Pascual, which led them back to relevance in the last half-decade in the NCAA.

    "Jon [Rebollos] has been around for a long time, but again it's about the team. We're just trying to prove to the basketball community that San Sebastian is here to compete," the former PBA player and current Alaska Aces assistant said.

    Robinson added that he hopes to carve out an identity for the team as a hardworking group that competes against all odds. "I always tell them to check on my story. I wasn't gifted skill-wise, but it's all about hard work and the determination to compete. They're here not because we lost someone else, but they're here because they deserve to be here."

    The Cobras held the momentum in the first quarter, making progress with Landry Sanjo in the post. Though they didn't fare well with their transition attacks, the center anchored Southwestern U with six points as they held a 9-6 lead.

    San Sebastian got the Cobras in foul trouble with under four minutes to play and capitalized from the line. Jaymark Perez added a couple of breakaway lay-ups as well, as the Stags poured on eight unanswered points.

    However, the San Sebastian struggled to close out the last two minutes with a line-up featuring reserves, as Fabrice Siewe got an and-one putback, leading the Cobras to knot the game after the first period, 16-all.

    Southwestern U's miscues early in the second quarter proved costly, as the Stags were quick to run out off misses and turnovers. SSC-R was also able to get inside using their halfcourt sets, as a drive by Jon Rebollos capped a 10-2 run, 26-18.

    Melvin Holper checked in halfway through the quarter and provided instant offense for the Cobras, draining a three-pointer to lead them in a shoot-out against the Stags. Rebollos and Leo De Vera replied for San Sebastian, but a halfcourt presence improved Southwestern U's fortunes greatly, as Holper knocked down his second trey to get within one, 39-38, with under two minutes to play.

    This time, the Stags took care of business, as they pushed the pace for a 10-0 run, including six points by Gusi, to take a 49-38 advantage at the half.

    After two quarters, the Stags had a 15-4 margin in turnover points, thanks to an 8-15 turnover difference. Holper had 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting in six minutes of play to lead the Cobras. While on the other bench, Rebollos led San Sebastian with 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting.

    In the third quarter, the Stags seemed to get to the rim at will, as De Vera dropped seven points in a 9-2 run for his squad. The Cobras tried a change of pace and went back to Sanjo around the key, and the big man responded with six in a 7-2 run, 60-48.

    San Sebastian offset the Cobras' forays inside with their outside shooting, as Perez and Raffy Gusi each drained a triple in the last four minutes to keep Southwestern U at bay after three quarters, 68-57.

    The Cobras carried their momentum into the fourth quarter, as Mark Panerio and Holper made triples to help cut the lead to five, 70-65. However, San Sebastian took advantage of the Cobras' turnovers, and another trey by De Vera buoyed a 76-67 tally for the Stags. Southwestern U continued to struggle with turnovers and giving up fouls, as charities by Guinto and Rebollos made it a 78-67 game with less than four minutes to play.

    Monbert Arong gave the Cobras some hope as he nailed a trey with three and a half minutes remaining, but Rebollos stepped up and nailed two from beyond the arc as well, offsetting another trey by the Cobras' Adam Mohammed, 84-73, with two minutes to play.

    The Stags shot 10-of-24 from beyond the arc en route to a 29-of-70 mark for the game (41 percent). The Cobras made 10-of-23 from range and finished 27-of-64 overall (42 percent).

    San Sebastian lost the rebounding battle (54-37), but led in fast break points (21-2) and turnover points (21-4).

    Landry Sanjo led the Cobras with 16 points and eight rebounds. Melvin Holper added 15 points and five boards, finishing 6-of-10 from the field. Monbert Arong rounded out the double-digit scorers with 12 points and six rebounds. - AMD / RAF, GMA News

    The New Beast: Striking similarities as Baste rising star keen to mirror Abueva success
    By Mei-Lin Lozada
    April 26, 2013, 04:02 pm

    Jaymark Perez not only looks, moves, and sounds like Calvin 'The Beast' Abueva, but the young shooting guard's life story is also eerily similar to his role model. Jerome Ascano
    THE glory days of San Sebastian appears to be over after the departure of the 'Pinatubo Trio' of Calvin Abueva, Ian Sangalang and Ronald Pascual, but there's hope on the horizon for Topex Robinson's revamped Stags.

    His name? Jaymark Perez.

    The 19-year-old incoming San Sebastian freshman not only inherited Abueva's No. 7 jersey number, but he also has the moves and boundless energy on court of the former King Stag.

    Perez also makes no effort to hide the fact that he looks up to 'The Beast' as his role model.

    "Idol ko talaga si Calvin kaya kinuha ko jersey (number) niya, nakalaro ko na siya dati sa ligang labas," he said. "Nakaka-pressure pero kaya naman eh. Maglalaro lang ako at para sa team ang gagawin ko, walang para sa akin."

    Comparisons therefore are inevitable as Perez attempts to pump life into the San Sebastian basketball program a year after the departure of Abueva, who led the Stags to a championship and last season distinguished himself as the first player to lead a major league in points, rebounds, and assists.

    "Medyo nakaka-pressure din kasi Calvin Abueva siya, 'The Beast' siya," Perez added. "Pero work hard lang then pakikisama sa team para mawala ang pressure."

    This early, Perez has shown glimpses of his immense potential. The 6-2 guard led the team to the Fr. Martin Cup finals late last year and in his debut in the 2013 Filoil Pre-season Premier Cup last week had a well-rounded game against Ateneo marked by 13 points, eight rebounds, and three assists.
    No wonder Rolly Manlapaz, the veteran coliseum barker who christened Abueva as 'The Beast,' has given Perez the moniker 'The New Beast' during the game against the Blue Eagles.

    Perez, though, isn't too comfortable, both with the moniker and the attention he has been getting.

    "'The New Beast?' Wala pa naman akong napapatunayankaya stay muna ako as sarili ko," he said. "Kaya magwo-work hard ako para masundan ang yapak ni Calvin."

    "Kung may opportunity na maging Calvin ako, why not,... Pero ngayon work in progress pa ang lahat at para sa team muna," says San Sebastian rookie Jaymark Perez. Photo by Jerome Ascano
    Perez not only looks, moves, and sounds like Abueva, but the young shooting guard's life story is also eerily similar to his role model.

    Born in Hong Kong to a Filipina overseas worker and a Nigerian national, Perez, like Abueva, has yet to meet his father. Mother and son later came home to the Philippines, where he was raised with the help of his grandparents in Bautista, Pangasinan.

    And like Abueva, he sees basketball as his family's ticket out of poverty.

    "Sana (maka-angat din ako) para makaahon sa kahirapan," he said.

    Although they may have the same life story, the San Sebastian rising star said he prefers to carve his own niche.

    Perez, though, admits things won't be easy for the Stags a year after the departure of Abueva and Co. as well as the falling-out between the school and former patron Dennis Pineda that saw the team lose most of its upcoming talent except Perez who opted to stay put.

    "Sa team namin parang mahihirapan kami kasi bagong team nga, mahihirapan kami maka-angat kasi puro bago ang players at coaching staff. Pero susubukan namin maka-angat," he said.

    "Hindi ko masasabi na madadala ko ang team sa championship pero sa pagtutulungan namin ng team baka siguro makarating kami doon," he said.

    Jaycee Asuncion, 21, is one of Perpetual’s reserve shooting guards. A former Philippine Christian University Dolphin, the 5-foot-11 off guard averaged 5.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 11.6 minutes in Season 87. Transferee?

    WHAT A GAME!!!

    OVERTIME! 89-87! BASTE!

    Leo De Vera for 3! Nakalimang trey ata si De Vera sa bilang ko! Hehe!

    Tapos last 3 mins. nafoul out si Bradwyn! Pumalit si Tano! Tapos bago matapos yung regulation nafoul out din si Tano! Si Balucanag pumalit!

    So for the whole 5 mins of overtime ang nagbabantay kay Charles Mamie si Balucanag! How did Baste survived that?! Hahaha hirap pa rin paniwalaan talaga! Pero ang ganda talaga nung game grabe! Hats off to UE! And napaka sports ng cheering squad ng UE. They clapped while we sing our Alma Mater Hymn!

    BTW lucky 3 for Vergara! Siya ata yung nagpatabla o nagpalamang kaya tayo nanalo! Hehe

    Nga pala ang pinatugtog ata ng jammerstags kanina yung San Sebastian March ata instead na yung Alma Mater Hymn! Astig! Lupet!

    Good game rin para kila Perez, Guinto and Dela Cruz! Nice! Nice! Si Perez high-flyer talaga! Pero kailangan pa nya iimprove inside game nya! Halatang naiintimidate pag malaki yung kalaban. Hehe


  15. #35
    Si Bai Cristobal ba part pa rin ng coaching staff ng Baste? Kasi nasa side siya kanina ng UE.Or does he serve as an assistant coach to both teams?

    Kailangan talaga natin ng 1 pang malupit na big man tsaka 1 pang steady PG! Masyadong babad si Guinto! Sana may makuha tayo sa palaro o kaya sa ibang HS!

    Si De Vera ang lupit talaga! Parang hindi napapagod! He plays with a lot of intensity talaga! And he really has 3 point shooting! A unique ability for a big man to have! Astig!

  16. #36
    Nice Game!!! Perez is making heads turn. Beast V2 (diba si Balucanag to?!?!). Everyone is helping out. Ang leader natin ngayon is Dela Cruz. Consistent and good defender. Anyway, sana magtuloy tuloy!!! Bravo Baste!!!

    brod sf talaga laro niyan sa cali kaya may laro sa labas. napilitan lang mag pf because of his height and kulang tayo sa decent big man. dami niyang force turnover sa kabila plus yung sunod sunod na tres ala jessie bardaje.

    two thumbs up for the team they never gave up. showing a lot of class & character despite of all the odds.

    Vergara’s lone basket wins it for San Sebastian over UE in OT
    By Mark Giongco
    5:45 pm | Wednesday, May 1st, 2013

    MANILA, Philippines—Gio Vergara only had one basket in seven tries but it turned out to be the biggest shot of the game.

    Vergara buried a go-ahead triple with only 19.4 seconds left as San Sebastian escaped University of the East, 89-87, in overtime Wednesday in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at the Arena in San Juan.

    “It all boiled down to who wanted it more. We never gave up,” said SSC head coach Topex Robinson. “I wasn’t even calling the shots, they (my players) just don’t want to quit.”

    “What we do in practice like we shot in the gym pa around 8 p.m. and it paid [off],” said the five-foot-six Vergara, who added six assists against one turnover in 28 minutes.

    The Golden Stags, who are basically an entirely different team this year with the departure of their
    ‘Big Three’ of Calvin Abueva, Ian Sangalang and Ronald Pascual along with other key pieces, went toe-to-toe with the Red Warriors, a team expected to have a breakthrough year in the coming UAAP Season 76.

    The game was slowly slipping away from San Sebastian when UE’s Charles Mammie powered his team to an 85-81 lead with just 1:32 left in the extra period.

    CJ Perez, a prized recruit out of Pangasinan, completed a three-point play set up by a pretty shot fake on Jay-ar Sumido before Vergara nailed the game-winning trey.

    The 19-year-old Perez, who has drawn comparisons to Abueva with his high motor and ability to play multiple positions, flirted with a triple-double with 20 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists to go along with two steals and two blocks to offset his six turnovers.

    “Sabi lang ni coach go hard lang ako palagi, nagawa ko naman pero kulang pa (Coach told me to go hard always, I did but it’s not enough),” said Perez.

    Leo de Vera also came up big for the Stags with 20 points on five-of-six shooting from deep, including the game-tying trey that forced extra session with 24.3 seconds left in regulation.

    The Fil-American de Vera, a matchup nightmare at the power forward spot with his quickness and ability to step out from deep, also had eight rebounds and six steals.

    Flashy guard Roy Sumang topscored with 23 points on top of six rebounds, nine assists and three steals but missed a leaner that would’ve tied it at 87 with only 5.6 ticks left.

    Mammie scored all of the Red Warriors’ points in overtime en route to 23 points to go along with 16 rebounds.

    San Sebastian improved to 2-2 while UE slid to 1-2.

    San Sebastian survives University of the East, evens record with OT win
    Job B. de LeonMay 1, 2013 4:40pm

    (Updated 5:30pm) The San Sebastian-Recoletos Golden Stags crippled the University of the East Red Warriors, 89-87, in the FilOil Flying V Hanes Preseason Cup elimination round, Wednesday, at the FilOil Flying V Arena.

    The Stags went on a 24-10 run bridging the latter two quarters to lead by four, 67-63. But the Warriors took advantage of San Sebastian's lack of an inside presence to keep close, only for Leo De Vera to nail a trey to tie the game with 24 seconds to play. UE came up empty on their next possession and narrowly escaped into overtime as De Vera missed a desperation tip-in.

    Since Bradwyn Guinto and Mark Tano had fouled out, UE center Charles Mammie had free reign in the paint. The Warriors dumped the ball down to Mammie on each trip and he scored their first nine points, 87-82.

    However, the Stags pulled the rug underneath them in the final minute, as CJ Perez converted an and-one play on the block to get San Sebastian within two with 48 ticks remaining. Gio Vergara then followed it up with a corner trey with 19 seconds remaining.

    UE pushed the ball and Sumang tried to score off a leaner, but the shot rimmed out and fell out of bounds, granting possession to San Sebastian. The Warriors sent Perez to the line, but the Stags secured the rebound after Perez missed his second attempt, allowing them to dribble out the clock.

    "Thank God," said De Vera, commenting on his game-tying triple. "Coach said that whatever we do in practice we just do in the game.

    "Everybody has the opportunity to take that shot. The only time you're going to regret that shot is if you don't work on it," added Stags head coach Topex Robinson. "I told them I don't care if you miss those kinds of shots as long as we grow together. It's okay to make mistakes."

    The Stags notched their second win of the tourney to improve to 2-2, while the Warriors suffered their second straight loss, to stand at 1-2, in Group B play.

    San Sebastian held the advantage early after catching UE flat in transition, but the Warriors soon recovered to post a 10-8 advantage, capped by a Roi Sumang to Adrian Santos alley-oop. The Warriors then unleashed a 10-4 run in the last two and a half minutes, ending on consecutive baskets by Charles Mammie, to take a 20-12 lead after the first period.

    SSCR began the second quarter by sending double- and triple-teams towards Mammie and pushed the ball off the ensuing turnovers. Jovit Dela Cruz and CJ Perez combined for eight points in the 15-4 run, to steal ahead 27-23.

    The Warriors adjusted and tried scoring from outside, unsuccessfully, but got by on hustle plays by Chris Javier, 31-29. But in the last two minutes they went back to Mammie in the post as he and Sumang combined for an 8-2 run, and Sumang buried a trey over Perez at the buzzer to lead 37-33 at the half.

    UE shot only 12-of-44 from the field after two quarters (27 percent) but compensated with a 10-of-16 mark from the stripe (63 percent). San Sebastian made 15-of-43 field goals (35 percent) but was just 2-of-7 from the free throw line (29 percent).

    Triples by JR Sumido and Mario Bonleon kept the Warriors afloat in the third quarter, stretching their lead by as much as 13 points. Meanwhile, Mammie's presence frustrated most of San Sebastian's forays in the paint and the Golden Stags were forced outside, as Raffy Gusi made 2-of-3 after a fouled triple attempt, 53-43.

    Jovit Dela Cruz made a trey with three and a half minutes remaining, and San Sebastian began to hit their stride. With Mammie on the bench, the Stags used pressure defense to fuel their transition attack. Dela Cruz combined with Gusi for nine points in a 14-5 run to close the third period trailing by just one point, 58-57.

    Perez immediately gave the Stags their first lead of the game in the final period after consecutive drives, and a Leo De Vera three-pointer capped a 10-5 run with five and a half minutes to play, 67-63.

    Curiously the Warriors didn't take advantage of the Stags' penalty situation and opted to overcome them from the outside, as Sumang and Sumido nailed triples to match those by De Vera, knotting the game at 72-all.

    With three minutes to play, Mammie fouled out Stags center Bradwyn Guinto, clearing the lane for the Warriors. UE attacked the basket for a 6-3 swing, taking a 78-75 lead on a Sumang and-one with a minute and a half to play.

    The Stags called a timeout and traded empty possessions, before De Vera buried his fourth three-pointer of the period from the top of the key, knotting the game with 24 seconds remaining. San Sebastian forced a jump ball after the next Warriors inbounds to snatch possession backwith 20 seconds left, but fortunately for UE, De Vera's last-second tip-in rimmed out to send the game into overtime.

    Jaymark Perez narrowly missed a triple-double, tallying 20 points, 10 rebounds, and seven assists, in addition to two steals and two blocks. Leo De Vera added another 20 markers, 15 coming on three-pointers. He also produced eight rebounds, four assists and six assists.

    Jovit Dela Cruz notched a double-double of 19 points and 12 boards, while Bradwyn Guinto scattered 10.

    Roi Sumang and Charles Mammie had 23 points each to lead the Red Warriors, with Sumang adding six rebounds, nine assists and three steals and Mammie producing 16 rebounds and a block.

    Jay-ar Sumido produced 14 points, while Chris Javier and Mario Bonleon each chipped in 12, along with a combined 17 rebounds. The rest of the team however produced just three markers all-in-all.

    The Stags finished converting 41 percent from the field, while holding UE to only 33 percent shooting. They also out-ran their foes with a 23-12 difference in fast break points, and dished out more assists, 28-18. - AMD, GMA News

    Wala ba tayong pwedeng makuhang big man sa Staglets? Tsaka sana bigyan ng mas mahabang playing time yang si Gusi. Sayang magaling pa naman. Tsaka dapat sya nalang kapalitan ni Vergara sa PG position kasi sa ngayon ang kapalitan ni Vergara si Rebollos e! Hindi pwede yun. Scorer si Rebollos! Mas ok kung siya ang iseset-up!

    Si Jaymark bata pa yan! Pwede pa tumangkad! Hehe

    Basta kulang nalang talaga satin 1 pang big man at 1 PG pwedeng pwede na tayong makipagsabayan talaga!
