The 2013 Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup: May 1, 2013 Roundup

NU remained undefeated after keeping FEU at bay in today’s edition of the 2013 Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup at the San Juan Arena. SWU and SSC were also big winners today as both teams got their second wins in contrasting fashions.

Roundup: In the first game, the San Beda Red Cubs started their Filoil campaign on a bright note by defeating NCAA rivals La Salle Greenhills, 70-65. This game featured a plethora of former RP-Youth players take center stage. Foremost among these was San Beda’s Rev Diputado, who scored 15 points while handing out 4 assists and getting 3 steals. He was ably supported by Javee Mocon’s 12 points and 10 boards, while another former RP-Youth campaigner, Arvin Tolentino, registered 10 markers and 5 rebounds. LSGH was led by two former RP-Youth players, too – Rashleigh Prince Rivero (transferee from NU) and Kobe Paras (who spent one year in the Ateneo HS). Rivero scored 23 points and hauled down 13 boards, while Paras, the younger bro of UP’s Andrei Paras, added a dozen markers. The Greenies fell to 0-1.

The second game saw the De La Salle Lady Archers hand the Lyceum of the Philippines Lady Pirates their second loss, 59-53. Ara Abaca led DLSU with 14 points and 19 rebounds, while Cass Santos had 7 points and 11 boards. Lyceum’s Chack Cabinbin led all scorers with 30 points and 14 rebounds, but it was all for naught.

In the third game, the Southwestern University Cobras nailed their second W at the expense of the EAC Generals, 80-75. Landry Sanjo and Adam Mohammed paired up for 39 points, with Sanjo also recording 16 rebounds and 5 rejections. The Cobras utilized a strong finish in the fourth period to thwart the Generals’ efforts, highlighted by Mohammed’s big triple with a little more than a minute left for a 76-71 lead. EAC enjoyed great contributions from Francis Munsayac and Jan Jamon, both of whom combined for 50 markers.

                                                                                       The fourth game featured San Sebastian’s new dynamic duo, Jaymark Perez and Leo De Vera, finally explode and lead the Stags to a landmark overtime win over the vastly improved UE Red Warriors, 89-87. Perez, dubbed by coliseum barker Rolly Manlapaz as “The New Beast,” did unload a beastly line – 20 points, 10 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks, while De Vera shot the lights out, hitting 5 triples to end up with 20 points on top of 8 boards and 6 steals. Jovit Dela Cruz completed the three-headed monster attack for coach Topex Robinson with 19 markers and 12 caroms. On the other end, UE was led by Roi Sumang and new big man Charles Mammie, who scored 23 points each. Sumang also had 9 assists and 3 steals, while Mammie collared 16 rebounds in their second defeat of the tourney. The Stags, meanwhile, hiked their slate to 2 wins against 2 losses.

UE's machinations this season.

The last match of the day resulted in NU’s fourth win in as many games. This time their victims were their UAAP rivals, FEU, 67-64. Big man Alfred Aroga was a tower of power, scoring 20 points to go along with 11 boards. This he did despite the return of Emmanuel Mbe to action. Apparently, Mbe has been cleared to play in the summer league and perhaps we can assume this means he is also eligible to play out one final season in the UAAP. Ray Parks, who released a statement confirming that this coming collegiate season would be his last, scored 18 points, while another RP-Youth standout, Jay-J Alejandro, netted 10 markers to backstop Aroga. The Green & Gold, meanwhile, were led by the backcourt pair of Terrence Romeo and RR Garcia. Romeo scored 25 points and had 7 rebounds, while Garcia, who is an active member of the Gilas PIilipinas cadet pool, scattered 14 markers and also 7 boards. Coach Nash Racela’s Tamaraws absorbed their second loss against just one win so far.
