^Ahhh... now I know what type of sites you are visiting... don't worry bro, pareho tayo... :D

Anyways, I noticed that most Filipinas mixed with foreign blood are exceptionally pretty (one case in point: Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls)...

one reason why Fil-am cagers like Vicky looks stunning... :D

RP cagebelles have yes on SEAG gold after drubbing Singapore

Games Sunday
(Keelapirom Stadium)
3 p.m. Philippines vs Indonesia (M)
5 p.m. Philippines vs Thailand (W)

NAKHON Ratchasima -- The Philippine womens cage team went full steam ahead for three quarters Saturday and primed itself up for a shot at a first-ever gold medal in the Southeast Asian Games.

Fil-American Melissa Jacob led a searing charge by the Filipinas in the first half, where they broke the game open before cruising in the final period to win impressively over Singapore, 67-55, at the Keelapirom Stadium here.

And that makes the 5 p.m. (6 p.m. Manila time) Sunday showdown with the dangerous and defending champion Thais the winner-take-all match even if both teams would still be left with one more game in the elimination round.

The Filipinas, who held Singapore to just nine third quarter points, will still clash with Malaysia on Wednesday while the Thais, who debut Tuesday against Singapore, are also scheduled to battle the Malaysians on Thursday.

If we win tomorrow [Sunday], it would be all over, beaming head coach Fritz Gaston said. For all intents and purposes, that would be the championship match. And it wont be easy.

Jacob, a 5-foot-10 guard who hails from Pangasinan, scored the bulk of her team-high 19 points in the first half while Joan Grajales finished with 11 markers.

The victory underscored the preparedness of the Filipinas in trying to snap an age-old drought in the event and Gaston has the lineup that could finally do it only two of all 12 women fielded scoring.

Jacob also finished with seven rebounds while hitting all but one of seven free throws.

Easy was the way the Filipinas disposed of the Singaporeans as they opened up a 24-13 lead after the first before taking a 53-38 bubble into the fourth quarter where Gaston still tried not exposing his aces so much.

Thailand has grown wary of the Filipinas after seeing so many new names in the RP roster, and this resulted in the schedule of the womens games being revised so many times before action finally opened on Friday.

The feared Filipinos, meanwhile, also play a crucial match Sunday, locking horns with Indonesia at 5 p.m. in what coaching staff later described was their version of the title match.

That will be our championship game, mens coach Junel Baculi said just after a light workout Saturday even if his wards had come from a 136-82 shellacking of Cambodia the night before.

Gabe Norwood will be a marked man against the Indons, not that he was flashy against the Cambodians, and all, but because the offense of the Filipinos rotated most of the time around him.

The former George Mason University standout in the United States finished with 11 points and was one of nine in double figures for Baculi.

The Scores:

PHILIPPINES 67 -- Jacob 19, Grajales 11, Brick 9, Valencia 8, Tioseco 6, Narcisa 5, Tolentino 3, Vega 2, Adriano 2, Issa 2, Jose 0, Matsuno 0.

SINGAPORE 55 -- Zhou 19, Poon 12, Koh 8, Toh 6, Lin 5, Ho 3, W. Ang 2, J. Ang 0, Tan 0.

Quarters: 24-13, 35-29, 53-38, 67-55.

EVEN if they don't win the Gold Medal, the RP Women's NT gave a very good performance. At least this time, the Gold Medal was in reach. A Silver Medal is more than ok, hey how many Silvers have we won before anyway?!

This is a good sign for the 2009 SEA Games and the coming qualifying tournaments for the FIBA-Asia Women's Championships where we hope and pray that the Filipinas will be finally promoted to Division I after years of languishing in Division II.

Nothing against coach Gaston but I think we should hand-over the women's NT program to a higher profile coaching personality and the only one that comes to mind at this point is former NT mentor Joe Lipa.

Joe is free from any coaching engagements to-date (after his unceremonious and politically-charged exit from the UP men's team) but still is one of the country's most brilliant basketball minds.

His highly-principled approach to the game (w/c at times puts him in trouble with meddling officials and egotistic players) may be what the women's game in our country needs.

Unknown to many, he has already coached the RP women's NT back in the 1985 SEAG. I'm excited to see what he can do with all the talent at hand right now.

He has a lot to prove after what UP did to him and I can feel his hunger to make a point can only translate to a more determined effort on his part. The SBP should give him a call.

Also the weakness are they're lack in fundamentals, slow, flat footed players... They need to use suicides during their practice esp. shooting, conditioning. Their shooting drills must surely shot if didn't make she should give penalty suicides. Should our boys must teach them how to win ball games.

Yeah, SUICIDE is RUnning, touching the floor then runs again. But if you mean that no player's left because players are to be tired of it, then let's hope they'll make some other sacrifice. Suicide is common for Endurance.

Coach Lipa is a good candidate for the coaching position, but I think we can find a better one. Coach Lipa was good, yes no question about it. He coached the only men's championship for UP, but it seems that age is catching up to him. Not questioning his fire and fervor for coaching, but his "old" methodology for coaching didn't caught up with the ever evolving game. He is not connecting to young players anymore and he always forget our names on practices, games, etc. You would find it funny when you hear him call a certain player a couple of names before hitting the right one, or not at all.

Team Pilipinas Women down to Thailand

Pall of gloom quickly descended on the venue when the RP women, armed with their first solid shot at the gold for the first time in SEAG history, were held to just four points in the third quarter in an ugly 70-54 loss to the hosts.


That 16-point losing margin could very well tell on the RP ladies, who will still play Malaysia on Wednesday needing to win by a bigger margin while hoping that Thailand loses one of its last two matches to forge a tiebreak for the crown.

The elimination-round topnotcher in both divisions automatically wins the gold medal. As it currently stands, the RP women are minus 4 on quotient after two outings.

For a while, it looked like the RP women would carve a historic achievement in the biennial meet. The RP ladies took a 32-29 lead into the third period. There, however, they started coming apart, falling prey to errors and taking low-percentage shots against a Thai defense that wouldn't allow any other option.

Leading scorer Melissa Jacob had to sit out most of the period because of fouls.

Thailand took a 50-36 bubble after the third that was never threatened until the end.
THAILAND 70--Yothanan 18, Tunsaw 13, Banmoo 12, Ludrodkil 9, Charoenrat 6, Pungkoksoong 5, Mathuros 4, Suksomwong 3, Chirdpercharat 0.

PHILIPPINES 54--Brick 18, Grajales 11, Valencia 7, Tioseco 6, Jacob 5, Tolentino 3, Matsuno 2, Narciza 2, Vega 0, Issa 0.

Quarters: 15-18, 29-32, 50-36, 70-54

suicide is a practice drill that doesn't involve shooting. it's a form of punishment for the players who have lackadaisical plays from previous games. specially when they lost stamina in the middle of the game. but that's not what he meant. refer to previous post:D

Emelia Vega was head coach of the women's team before the SBP appointed Fritz Gaston to the post. She is also the head coach of the highly-successful Adamson Lady Falcons. I believe this should be the last time she plays in the SEA Games. She would be better off calling plays from the bench, not on the court.

Women cagers earn a bronze



By REY C. LACHICA

NAKHON RATCHASIMA Forget a historic gold medal for the Philippine womens basketball team.


Despite being reinforced by Fil-foreign players, the RP womens team still absorbed a 56-74 beating at the hands of the Malaysians yesterday in the 24th SEA Games here.

With the loss, their second straight after a 70-54 loss to defending champion Thailand last Sunday, the RP cagebelles settled for a bronze medal.

It was a big disappointment.

The RP womens team arrived in this laid back province in high spirits but after its setback yesterday, the members of the team felt as if the world crashed on them.

Coach Fritz Gaston offered no excuses.

"Nagulat kami but I think mas appropriate yung natameme kami," Gaston said after the one-sided match.

Using their quickness and aggressiveness, the Malaysians took a 38-23 lead at halftime. The RP cagebelles, however, managed to cut the lead down to 10 early in the fourth through the effort of Joan Grajales and Vicky Brick.

But it proved to be their last hurrah as the Malaysians poured on the heat even more to finally settle the outcome of the game.

"I thought malakas kami but they (Malaysians) are more prepared than us and some of my players are not in shape," a dejected Gaston said.

The only team the beat was Singapore in the four-team tournament.


The scores:

Malaysia 74 Chow Siao Foong 16, Goh Beng Fong 14, Kew Sulk May 13, Teo Won Yuen 8, Beh Siew Lian 7, Yong Shin Min 6, Low Bee Chuan 4, Pee Yann Yann 3, Hee Shook Ying 3, Chan Ying Chee 0, Thoh Chai Ling 0, Lee Siew Fun 0

Philipiines 56 Grajales 13, Brick 10, Tioseco 7, Tolentino 7, Jacob 6, Vega 6, Issa 6, Velancia 1, Jose 0, Narsiza 0, Adriano 0, Matsuno 0.

A foreign coach Again? It's not necessary of hiring a foreign coach. I think, we can produce or have a good coach. (here in RP), the women's team needs training and familiarity. The line up is a contender but the plays. They gave much playing time to Jacobs and Issa which are new to the team. Even Vicky is new. SO, all they need is FAMILIARITY. Those Malaysian and Thailanders have been together for years. I dont even think RP has been together for 3 months. (all of them as a team).

TJ Breiz Miller - 5'4 age 14 yrs old

Dannika Lugtu and TJ Breiz Miller, both 14, didnt lose their cool as whistles blew, the crowd yelled Defense! and arms were flung in front of their faces, at the 2007 Amateur Athletic Union 13 and Under Girls National Basketball Championships held in Kings Island, Ohio. Their team finished third among 96 of the best teams in the nation in this years tournament.
Three years ago at the same tournament, they ended up in 26th place. The following year they finished ninth.
Breiz Miller, who is African American and Filipino, said her ethnicity has never been a barrier to the sport. You dont have to be a certain race to do something, said the Rebels point guard and captain. You can be a Chinese basketball player like Yao Ming. Its on you.
She cited Manny Pacquiao, Filipino professional boxer and reigning World Boxing Council International Super Featherweight champion, as a model who drives her to persevere. Hes a great example. If he can make it, I can make it too.
Lugtu, who is Filipino, said she sometimes senses discrimination from opposing players of other races. Some people may think that Filipinos or Asians dont work as hard as other races. The truth is, all players work to their desire. If they want to succeed, they will work five times as hard as everyone else and thats what I do.
Classmates are confident that Breiz Miller will make it to the WNBA, although she stands only 5 4. Ill play even harder if my opponents are taller than me, she said. I feel like its more of a challenge.
Likewise, guard Lugtu, at 52, is not worried about her height. To me, size doesnt matter. Its the heart.
She calls Dawn Staley, the three-time Olympic gold medalist who at 56 is one of the shortest players in the WNBA, an inspiration.
Breiz Miller used to have a more masculine mentality when she first started playing. Women are more team players. Women are more cooperative, she said. For the first three years, I wanted to be a star, and I wanted it to be about me. Now Im the one who passes the ball to my team to score a point, to make others shine.
Breiz Miller looks to Denver Nuggets shooting guard Allen Iverson as an exemplary team player and even selected the same jersey number as an homage. She also admires WNBA Most Valuable Player Lisa Leslie and Olympic gold medalist Sheryl Swoopes.
A native of California, Lugtu became interested in basketball after becoming aware of the sports immense popularity in the Philippines. I was actually influenced by that because it was nice to see Filipinos playing my favorite sport on TV, she said. Her father played basketball in high school in the Philippines, and she follows San Beda College sports in Alabang. Basketball also runs in Breiz Millers family: her grandfather is the director of a recreational league in the Philippines.
This fall, Breiz Miller and Lugtu will try out for the Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory high school basketball team as freshman.

No longer the poor sisters
THE GAME OF MY LIFE By Bill Velasco
Monday, March 3, 2008 - Philstar

Womens basketball in the Philippines is on the verge of a big breakthrough, just as US womens basketball was back in 1995. The American women toured the world, playing mens teams and any competition they could find to drum up attention, compiling a spotless 50-win record before hitting the Atlanta Olympics like a storm. Immediately after, the Womens National Basketball Association (WNBA) was born, bringing the sport fully into the mainstream.

If you watch basketball in the Philippines, youd think no women played it. Only mens UAAP and NCAA games are televised, except for the womens finals. In one instance, an exhibition game had top womens teams using mens size basketballs. (Men use a size 7, women a size 6.) Last year, the Philippine womens team finally got some attention, but was it because they had talented Fil-Ams joining the team, had good-looking players, or because they were talented? Those questions are now being answered as the Philippine womens hoops team prepares for the 2009 Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) and Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) competitions.

After two years of suspension, the Philippines was given back full active membership by the FIBA (the international governing body for basketball). One of the goals of the new BAP-SBP was to win gold medals in the womens SEABA and SEA Games. We had hardly ever beaten Thailand and Malaysia, unlike in the mens competition, where we regularly trounced them. To make things worse, in our absence, they had gotten stronger by playing against tougher Asian competition.

SEABA was really intense. The level was so different from college, admits Cassy Tioseco, the six-foot forward-center from Ateneos champion UAAP team. Everyones emotions were so high. But I think we did surprisingly well given the short time we trained.

In that competition, they beat defending champion Thailand in their opening game, and were suddenly expected to sweep. But in the finals, Thailand got even, and relegated the RP women to second.

Considering the team was formed barely six months before the SEA Games in my opinion we played good enough last year, declares new head coach Haydee Ong, a former assistant who took over from Fritz Gaston after the SEA Games in Thailand in December. Everybody was expecting to get the gold medal after the silver medal finish in SEABA but unfortunately we failed to deliver the gold.

The team had gained a lot of attention with the arrival of 57 Fil-American guard Vicki Brick, a former US high school all-American. As a freshman for the University of Maryland, the do-it-all guard had 3.1 steals and 4.3 assists per contest in 26 games as a starter, the second and third best efforts, respectively, by a first-year player in NCAA history. Brick also suited up for Sydney in Australias WNBL, where she shot 40 percent from beyond the three-point line.

At the SEABA, we were almost all new, and younger, says AA Adriano, a swift forward from FEU. Vicki hadnt been with us long. At the SEA Games, the expectations were so high. Our defense fell apart, and our offense didnt click.

The hosts tried everything in the book to unsettle the Filipinas. This writer arrived in Nakhon Ratchasima right before the opening ceremonies to witness a shouting match involving basketball officials, who were surprised when the organizers suddenly switched schedules without FIBAs approval. Then-coach Fritz Gaston was informed on opening day that they would be playing the next morning, instead of two days later. And their first opponent would no longer be Thailand, but lightweight Singapore, giving the hosts a precious opportunity to scout them.

They were surprised that we had three new players in our roster, including two more Fil-Ams. Thats why they arbitrarily changed the schedule, Gaston said at the time. Theyre scared of losing to us.

The changes in schedule threw off the teams tight preparations, and deflated their morale, since the uncertainty in schedule kept them from joining the parade of athletes in the opening ceremony, which would have been a memorable first for almost all of them. They settled for playing pusoy at the athletes village and watching the opening on TV. Again, we fell short, losing to Thailand and eventual champion Malaysia. But to be fair, the referees consistently made bad calls against any team that was a threat. And the Philippines was the biggest threat out there.

Usually, you have a set sked that you follow, Tioseco says. We were really excited. Ive never been to an opening ceremony. We knew it would be a distraction. It may have affected some people. We expected to play two days later. You have to learn to adapt to those things.

After the losses in Thailand, rumors surfaced, rumors that there was discontent and disagreement among the players, and jealousy over the supposed preferential treatment (and bigger allowances) the Fil-Am players were receiving.

No there is no issues about the Fil-Am players and allowances, Ong affirms. Basically, the core of the team is still intact; only the Fil-Ams went back to the States. Basically the strength and weakness of the team will depend on how athletic and skilled the Fil-Am players will be, and to what the team needs in the future.There is nothing wrong in getting Fil-Am players.

Because of the success of the V-League, which includes national players reinforcing school-based teams, and great TV coverage from ABS-CBN, womens basketball now has a template to follow. And a commercial league will be born in April, the Filipina Basketball League.

The timing is now perfect, because many of SEA Games champion Malaysias players are retiring, and Thailand is also going to change its roster. At least two of our Fil-Ams are coming back, full-time, and many new, younger and taller players are trying out for the RP team.

Vengeance will be sweet in Laos.

Finally, a women's league.:)

RP women's juniors holds second tryout (March 6, 2009)

CDOs 65 Fretzie Oyao considered


WISHING to really get the best of best among the countrys youth women basketball players, the Careline-Philippine Womens Junior and Youth teams will hold another tryout for Metro Manila aspirants on March 7 at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.

During the first tryout last February, 40 lady cagebelles appeared but RP Womens Youth chief backer Dioceldo Sy, chairman of Ever Bilena Cosmetics, Inc., said he knows there are more talented girls out there waiting to be discovered.

As of now, the team is considering getting the services of Fretzie Marie Oyao, a 6-foot-5 player from Cagayan de Oro City.

Sy said he expects more to come on Saturday before the coaching staff, led by Patrick Aquino, shifts its focus to the provinces in the hope of tapping the best available talents around for future international tournaments.

From the 40 who joined the first tryout, 18 of them will be asked to return as Aquino hopes to form the team next month in line with the effort of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas under its president Manny V. Pangilinan and Executive Director Noli Eala in boosting womens basketball in the country.

We believe in the vision of SBP that for the country to become No. 1 in both the mens and womens divisions, we should maintain an elite and grassroots program for the womens youth sector. And that is the commitment of Careline to the SBP and to the country, said Sy.

The tryout for the RP 16-and-under team starts from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Participants must bring photocopy of their birth certificates.

Players who wish to join the tryouts will get complimentary Careline products and t-shirts from Freego Jeans. PNA

Fretzie Oyao has gigantism as per my talk with Coach Eric Altamirano, he also told me then that the SBP is having her checked by the doctors here in Metro Manila as gigantism is fatal as a brain tumor might develop attached to his pituitary gland that the over-produces growth hormones.

But have not heard any updates about Fretzie lately.

Ong open to try out Fil-Am star
By Joaquin Henson Updated March 15, 2009 12:00 AM

Jessica de la Cruz
MANILA, Philippines National womens basketball team coach Haydee Ong said yesterday the door is open for Fil-Am star Jessica de la Cruz of San Joaquin Delta College to try out for the squad now preparing for the SEABA tournament in Thailand on June 1-5 and the FIBA-Asia Championships in Taipei on June 21-28.

De la Cruz, a 5-7 shooting guard, is averaging 13.1 points in 30 games, including 28 starts, for the Lady Mustangs as a sophomore this season. She is shooting .427 from the field, .419 from three-point distance and .750 from the line. The 19-year-old Big 8 Conference MVP was born in Sacramento and her father Jeff is Filipino. Last Monday, de la Cruz hit 21 points, including 7-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 free throws, to lead Delta to an 88-60 win over Ohlone College in Stockton, California.

The victory raised the varsitys record to 29-6 and brought the Lady Mustangs to the state finals against Antelope Valley College.

Ong, however, said she has no way to contact de la Cruz whose biofile was furnished The STAR by blogger Ferdie Alayon, a Filipino accountant based in Sacramento. Alayon, who writes as VicOngasis and heads a worldwide network of STAR bloggers known as Wanbol Uni, said he will try to track down de la Cruz and check on her availability for the national team.

In her varsity profile, de la Cruz said the one place she prefers to spend her vacation is the Philippines to keep in touch with my roots.

Ong, 39, said the national squad will play a series of tune-up games in Shanghai on March 26-April 5. A budget of P1.3 million was raised for the trip mainly by team manager Cynthia Tiu of Discovery Suites. Tius nephew Chris plays for the Philippine developmental team. Another patron Jimmy Tan has arranged for Ongs squad to live in townhomes in Shanghai during the training tour for free.

Ong said the cagebelles will play teams from Shanghai University and the Shanghai military, among others.

Two years ago, the Philippine team swept its elimination games but lost to Thailand in the finals of the SEABA Championships in Phuket. The squad went on to bag the bronze at the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games with coach Fritz Gaston and Ong as assistant.

Six players from the SEA Games roster are back - two-time UAAP MVP Cassie Tioseco, PBA cager Kiko Adrianos sister Aurora, Diane Rose Jose, Fatima Tolentino, Sylvia Marie Valencia and Joan Grajales. Added to the 16-strong lineup were Trina Limjengco, Bernadette Mercado, Chovy Borja, Ewan Arayi, Maritess Gabian, Karen Lomogda, Marichu Bacarro, Len Buenacosa, Flor Mata and Jesamine de los Reyes.

Missing are the three Fil-Ams who played in the SEA Games - Vicki Brick, Melissa Jacob and Amira Issa.

Im in contact with Vicki and Melissa, said Ong who coaches Ateneo and played on four UST championship teams in the UAAP from 1987 to 1991. Unfortunately, theyre not able to commit to three months training because of work. Theyre willing and excited to play for the national team again but they just cant take a long leave from work. When they played in the SEA Games, they trained less than a month and it wasnt enough. Well welcome them to join if they could only stay for at least three months.

Valencia, 29, is the oldest in the team and the 6-1 Mata, 21, is the youngest and tallest. Mercado, Borja, Adriano and Jose play for UAAP champion FEU.

Ongs staff is made up of assistant Ron Camara and strength and conditioning coach Pat Esmundo. She joined the national team as Bai Cristobals assistant for the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok and stayed with the staff until 2004. She succeeded Gaston as head coach last year.

The Philippines hasnt played in the FIBA-Asia Womens Championships since 2004 when the team finished third in Level 2 or ninth overall.

Ong said Fil-Am twins Angel and Jessica Roque, who play for Cleveland State in Division I, were in Manila on vacation last October and attended three practices but couldnt commit to the national team until they graduate because of NCAA restrictions.

The Roques, 20, are juniors. Angel, 5-5, is averaging 6.9 points and Jessica, 5-7, 10.6 this season. They were born three hours apart in Ontario. Their father Ric is Filipino.

SBP executive director Noli Eala said if de la Cruz is interested to play for the country, she should express her intent now so a tryout could be scheduled.

I dont know her but if shes interested, we can try her out, said Eala. The team is leaving for Shanghai to train so I suggest she should already work out with the team.

Delta s season is about to end and de la Cruz should be free in a few weeks. Ong said there is still no confirmation if the SEABA tournament will be held although it has been calendared. If the SEABA joust is cancelled, there will be a lead time of about three months from now to train for the FIBA-Asia Championships starting June 21.

Malaysia Aims For Top Position In Fiba Asia Championship


By Farhanah Azmi

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 9 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian women's basketball team, currently playing in Level II at the 23rd International Basketball Federation (Fiba) Asia Women Championship in Chennai, India (Sept 17-24), has targetted to end their campaign in the top two positions.

Under the tournament regulation, the top two from Level II will play-off against the bottom two of Level I, in an attempt to earn promotion for a place in the next edition's Level I.

"We want to finish the competition in the top two positions which will enable us to be promoted back to Level I of the championship. So, the players need to give their best performance, this time around," assistant coach Yoong Sze Yuin told Bernama.

She noted that the Malaysian women's team were relegated to Level II after losing to India in the play-offs at the 22nd edition of the championship in Incheon, South Korea in 2007.

In Chennai, Malaysia are grouped with Kazakhstan, Lebanon, The Philippines, Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan in Level II, while China, Taiwan, India, Japan, South Korea and Thailand are in Level I.

Malaysia are scheduled to take on the Philippines in the opening match on Sept 17.
"It will be a good fight against the Phillipines. We have not played against them since the 2007 Korat Sea Games and we don't know their strength...whether they would field the same squad or a new line up," said Yoong.
She added that the team which comprised seven senior and five junior players were currently beefing up their trainning at the Malaysian Basketball Association Stadium and will be leaving for Chennai on Sept 15.

"These players are currently the best in the country and they have been going through intensive training in preparation for this championship," she added.

Malaysia's best achivement at the Fiba Asia Women Championship was in 2005 when they were promoted to Level I for the first time, after topping Level II Group A and finishing their campaign in eighth position at the 21st Fiba Asia Women Championship held at Qinhuangdao, China.

SBP: Chinese ace to boost RP ladies five (http://sports.inquirer.net/amateur/amateur/view/20090907-223939/SBP:_Chinese_ace_to_boost_RP_ladies_five)

GOING WITH THE INTERNATIONAL TREND of hiring foreign athletes, the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas also wants to recruit a 6-foot-3 Chinese to beef up the womens national team.

SBP executive director Noli Eala said the federation is interested in hiring Zheng Xiaojing, a Fujian native, through naturalization to provide the womens squad a much-needed frontline presence.

Zhengs inclusion will add ceiling to the RP team, which has the 6-1 Cassy Tioseco of Ateneo and 6-2 Amira Issa from Meredith College in the United States as its tallest aces.

According to Internet scouting reports, the 25-year-old Zheng was the top player of the Fujian team, which ranked eighth last year in the Womens Chinese Basketball Association.

Were hoping to get Zheng on board and expedite her naturalization process along with American CJ Giles, said Eala.

Fresh from the NBA training camp, Giles, who played briefly for the Los Angeles Lakers, will arrive today from the US after signing a one-year pact to reinforce the Smart Gilas Pilipinas team in the 2010 Asian Games.

Eala said RP team coach Haydee Ong first saw Zheng in China during one of the training camps for the womens squad in 2004.

The cagebelles are training for the Fiba Asia womens championship set Sept. 17 to 26 in Chennai, India.

The SBP favors the less complicated legislative procedure to secure Filipino citizenship for Zheng and Giles.

Eala said the SBP ruled out the administrative and judiciary procedure because of the 10-year residency requirement.

The womens team won the bronze in the 2007 Southeast Asian Games in Thailand.

Ong open to try out Fil-Am star
By Joaquin Henson Updated March 15, 2009 12:00 AM

MANILA, Philippines National womens basketball team coach Haydee Ong said yesterday the door is open for Fil-Am star Jessica de la Cruz of San Joaquin Delta College to try out for the squad now preparing for the SEABA tournament in Thailand on June 1-5 and the FIBA-Asia Championships in Taipei on June 21-28.

De la Cruz, a 5-7 shooting guard, is averaging 13.1 points in 30 games, including 28 starts, for the Lady Mustangs as a sophomore this season. She is shooting .427 from the field, .419 from three-point distance and .750 from the line. The 19-year-old Big 8 Conference MVP was born in Sacramento and her father Jeff is Filipino. Last Monday, de la Cruz hit 21 points, including 7-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 free throws, to lead Delta to an 88-60 win over Ohlone College in Stockton, California.

The victory raised the varsitys record to 29-6 and brought the Lady Mustangs to the state finals against Antelope Valley College.

Ong, however, said she has no way to contact de la Cruz whose biofile was furnished The STAR by blogger Ferdie Alayon, a Filipino accountant based in Sacramento. Alayon, who writes as VicOngasis and heads a worldwide network of STAR bloggers known as Wanbol Uni, said he will try to track down de la Cruz and check on her availability for the national team.

In her varsity profile, de la Cruz said the one place she prefers to spend her vacation is the Philippines to keep in touch with my roots.

Ong, 39, said the national squad will play a series of tune-up games in Shanghai on March 26-April 5. A budget of P1.3 million was raised for the trip mainly by team manager Cynthia Tiu of Discovery Suites. Tius nephew Chris plays for the Philippine developmental team. Another patron Jimmy Tan has arranged for Ongs squad to live in townhomes in Shanghai during the training tour for free.

Ong said the cagebelles will play teams from Shanghai University and the Shanghai military, among others.

Two years ago, the Philippine team swept its elimination games but lost to Thailand in the finals of the SEABA Championships in Phuket. The squad went on to bag the bronze at the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games with coach Fritz Gaston and Ong as assistant.

Six players from the SEA Games roster are back - two-time UAAP MVP Cassie Tioseco, PBA cager Kiko Adrianos sister Aurora, Diane Rose Jose, Fatima Tolentino, Sylvia Marie Valencia and Joan Grajales. Added to the 16-strong lineup were Trina Limjengco, Bernadette Mercado, Chovy Borja, Ewan Arayi, Maritess Gabian, Karen Lomogda, Marichu Bacarro, Len Buenacosa, Flor Mata and Jesamine de los Reyes.
Missing are the three Fil-Ams who played in the SEA Games - Vicki Brick, Melissa Jacob and Amira Issa.

Im in contact with Vicki and Melissa, said Ong who coaches Ateneo and played on four UST championship teams in the UAAP from 1987 to 1991. Unfortunately, theyre not able to commit to three months training because of work. Theyre willing and excited to play for the national team again but they just cant take a long leave from work. When they played in the SEA Games, they trained less than a month and it wasnt enough. Well welcome them to join if they could only stay for at least three months.

Valencia, 29, is the oldest in the team and the 6-1 Mata, 21, is the youngest and tallest. Mercado, Borja, Adriano and Jose play for UAAP champion FEU.

Ongs staff is made up of assistant Ron Camara and strength and conditioning coach Pat Esmundo. She joined the national team as Bai Cristobals assistant for the 1998 Asian Games in Bangkok and stayed with the staff until 2004. She succeeded Gaston as head coach last year.

The Philippines hasnt played in the FIBA-Asia Womens Championships since 2004 when the team finished third in Level 2 or ninth overall.

Ong said Fil-Am twins Angel and Jessica Roque, who play for Cleveland State in Division I, were in Manila on vacation last October and attended three practices but couldnt commit to the national team until they graduate because of NCAA restrictions.

The Roques, 20, are juniors. Angel, 5-5, is averaging 6.9 points and Jessica, 5-7, 10.6 this season. They were born three hours apart in Ontario. Their father Ric is Filipino.

SBP executive director Noli Eala said if de la Cruz is interested to play for the country, she should express her intent now so a tryout could be scheduled.

I dont know her but if shes interested, we can try her out, said Eala. The team is leaving for Shanghai to train so I suggest she should already work out with the team.

Delta s season is about to end and de la Cruz should be free in a few weeks. Ong said there is still no confirmation if the SEABA tournament will be held although it has been calendared. If the SEABA joust is cancelled, there will be a lead time of about three months from now to train for the FIBA-Asia Championships starting June 21.

so is this the same line-up for Level II at the 23rd International Basketball Federation (Fiba) Asia Women Championship in Chennai, India (Sept 17-24)?

maybe sbp should reconsider accomodating fil-ams like vicki brick and melissa jacob. i think their talent alone should more than compensate for the 3-month training coach heidi ong requires. hmmm.... given the recent histoty of the philippine women's NT, i think the 3-month training requirement could have been designed precisely to exclude the fil-ams.

they cannot accomodate the any player who cannot commit to said training period as they previously did that in the last SEA Games to accomodate 2 out of the 3 Fil-Ams but it created resentment among the homegrown players that resulted into a Team mutiny vs then Head Coach Fritz Gaston. That team had a lot of promise going into that tournament but the last minute insertion disrupted the team chemistry that was already in place as Fil-ams got a lot of minutes even though they were creating misplays due to their unfamiliarity with the system and their team mates. Coach Haydee then an assistant coach understood the homegrown players sentiments thus she implemented said minimum training period requirement.

But please note the resentment was not actually versus the presence of the Fil-ams but on the situation it created which there is a cloud of favoritism and unfairness as the homegrown players were required to train for almost the whole year and some were forced to drop or take a leave of absence from school.

no cassie tioseco? hmm....

and no flor mata? two 6-1 players gone??? :confused:

diane jose also gone?

i don't claim to know much about philippine women's basketball, but this team seems to definitely lack ceiling. i don't think this line-up is better than the 2007 SEA games bronze medalists. i just hope coach heidi ong proves me wrong. :(

note: maria susan bambico and cherrylyn lubiano are the veterans said to have been eased out by fil-ams mellisa jacobs and amira issa in the 2007 sea games.

2. ???
3. merenciana "ewon" arayi (i think she has middle eastern blood)
4. aurora adriano (kiko's sister)
5. cassy (or cassie) tioseco - why is she not in the current lineup?
6. stephanie "pipay" villanueva - now working as a computer analyst in the u.s.
7. diane jose (bobby's daughter)

if asiabasket is to be believed, the only hold-overs are arayi and adriano.

It depends on the SBP and Coach Haydee Ong, Vicki is enplaning to Manila on Oct 5 to acompany his brother Jon who is looking to find a team.

Please also note Amira Issa has been in town since late last month and has been training with the National Team.

I believe Amir Issa is in the line-up as shown by the pics of Nardy. It will still be an uphill climb since the team did not have international exposures as well as their lack of ceiling. In the 2007 SEA games, the RP team had international exposures and still no luck come SEA Games.

But I believe the team is more cohesive now. Let's just hope RP gets promoted to Division I pero suntok sa buwan ata.

Hey everyone! So guess where I am(Twitter followers already know)..Give up?....Im in Lebanon! Beirut to be exact. Ya, crazy random I know (didnt exactly see myself living in the Middle East any time soonor ever).
But Im here playing basketball for the Lebanese National Team for the next three months. No, Im not Lebanese by birth but somehow its legal so Ima go with it, haha. Its nice to be back on the court and although its not at WNBA level, its a good place to get my rhythm back and get some game film to play in Europe afterwards. Ive been here almost a week and I love it so far. So I figured Id write and give yall some initial thoughts and insight into my life over here.

My first reaction when walking out of the airport: OMG yall have palm trees here! Yay! Second reaction: What?! Yall got Krispy Kreme?! (upon seeing a billboard for my fav donut place). Yep, they sure do. In fact, its so Americanized here I didnt even have to exchange money. I can pay with dollars anywhere I go. Too cool. In addition to Krispy Kreme, Ive also seen Ace Hardware, Osh Kosh Bgosh, Shell gas stations (theyre called
Coral hereget it? Coral, Shell, haha), Crocs, GNC, GoodYear, Dunkin Donuts, and Radio Shack. And of course McDonalds, Burger King, and KFC are givens.

The city is absolutely beautiful. Sunny, modern, and right on the water (I can look out my window and see the Mediterranean Sea). And the food here is delicious. Usually when players go overseas they end up losing lots of weight because of the lack of acceptable food options; but I dont see that being a problem here. We also only have one practice a day so I better not eat too much because I will be spending lots of time in a bikini. Might even post some pics from our team outing to the beach next week ;-)

My teammates are very nice and all speak English. Actually, lots of people here speak English, but French is the most prevalent language, other than Arabic of course. Many people speak all three and its not uncommon to hear words from each in the same sentence. I have two tattoos in Arabic and Ive gotten lots of questions about them. Thankfully they say what I meant them to say because Im in a place where people can actually read them. The only thing I've found so far that sucks: everyone smokes everywhere. I DETEST cigarettes. If I'm around them too often I get sick, so I have to be extra careful.

Thats why we need those fil ams.the twins, dela cruz etc.

Our team is still better than the Lebanese team they just have that Good naturalized payer but our bench are dfntly better.

now its going to be Kazakhstan,malaysia,phils and now Lebanon for the div I.:D

am sorry the SBP does not do quickfixes or patchwork. They had set programs, if the player could not commit, the SBP would not force the issue. Playing for the National Team needs dedicated players, they invited the Fil-foreigners and explained the program but said players could not commit as they have other priorities. As I posted earlier, a National Team is not in the business of begging, so whatever we have we'll live or die with them. Another thing submission of 12 player Final line-ups had already prescribed and actually the FIBA-Asia tournament is about to startg

PHI / MAS Gritty Filipinos ward off Malaysia
17/09/2009

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - Malaysia stuttered at the start of their claim to regain a place in Level I, going down 55-61 to a gritty Filipino outfit in a level II game also the opening game of the Championship on Thursday.

Malaysia coach Tan See Wah, however was satisfied with the way his girls played.

We (the Malaysian National team) has been struggling for the last couple of years and we are in a transition period. In that sense, I think we played rather well, the veteran coach said.

They caught us surprise. Of course they gave us a scare, Tan See Wahs Filipino counterpart Haydee Ong said.

Pithy point guard Sylvia Valencia used all her experience to good stead for the Philippines and top scored the game with 15 points, in an otherwise all-round scoring pattern,

There are not many problems as far acclimatization is concerned. The weather is the same as back home in Manila and the conditions are pretty good. The only point is we hope can keep the intensity and move ahead, Ong said.

Philippines have a game against the much taller Kazakhstan on the morrow, while Malaysia take on Lebanon.

Kew Suik Mays 14 points was the highest for Malaysia.

it's a good thing cassie tioseco is also in.

missing are adriano (feu), bacaro and buenacosa (ust), and limgenco and tiu (admu).

Looking at the line-up, most if not all are out of school already so how come there were no international exposures? I do recall someone replying that the reason being was that most are still in school so they just trained locally. But perhaps it's just financial reasons.

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - Naturalization of women players in Asia is not common.

American Chantelle Anderson naturalized by Lebanon a couple of weeks ago belongs to that rare group.

The 28-year-old justified her induction in style, using her 199-cm presence to leave a tall literally impression on Lebanons opening game Level II win against Uzbekistan in offense (19 points) as well as in defense (six defensive rebounds in a total of eight for the game).

The former WNBA player spoke exclusively to chennai2009.fibaasia.net after the game.

FIBA Asia: What is the main reason for you choosing to play for Lebanon?

Anderson: This was just a great opportunity to play for an up and coming country in basketball.

And the Lebanese basketball community is very active, passionate and intense.

I really like how motivated they are to up their level of Lebanese womens basketball. Its a great thing to be a part of.

This is a great team, great girls. Very fun. I am just having a good time.

FIBA Asia: The Lebanese mens team has had great results in the last couple of years

Anderson: I know the Lebanese mens team is getting better. We would like to further the Lebanese womens team to emulate them.

We would like the womens team to continue to grow as a team, as an organization, as a program and as a country.

FIBA Asia: Given the vastly experienced background that you have, what is the singularly impressive aspect that you would point out in this team?

Anderson: They have great heart. They fight till the end. They never give up.

You know, we have a relatively smaller team height wise. But this team never gives up and keeps fighting.

They just love each other on the court and play for each other. And thats fun to be a part of.

FIBA Asia: What is that one singular thing where you would like them to improve?

Anderson: Well. This is actually not about the team, but something which is not necessarily in their control.

Any program starting out will go through some growing pangs.

Its basically that these girls need to continue to play at a higher level more often.

Theres nothing they can do right now. Its just a matter of time and continuing to play at this level.

Playing this FIBA Asia (Women) Championship is an awesome move in that direction.

FIBA Asia: Personally, what are you looking for personally?

Anderson: My basketball career has been through a lot of ups and downs.

And I just want it to be on a high-note right now.

Im having a great time with this team, this organization and this country.

My personal goal here is to play at as high as a level as I can and be a good example.

I want to be someone who my teammates can count on when push comes to shove. Thats the most important thing for me to be somebody my teammates like playing with.

Yes, but pls backread several postings have been made in pages 18 and 20 of this thread.

She's former WNBA player 6'6 Chantelle Anderson.

But what I could not understand is that Anderson was a member of the Gold Medal-winning USA Basketball Jones Cup Team in 2000 as well as being on the Gold Medal-winning U.S. team at the World University Games in 2001. With this, it gives me hope that we have a chance of getting FIBA approval for Christian Standhardinger.

Second Day of the 23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship, Chennai (India).

KAZAKHS ROLL PAST PHILIPPINES

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - Kazakhstan opened up the game in the second quarter and then built on it to beat Philippines 71-52 on Thursday.

The win perched Kazakhstan as the only unbeaten team in Level II having won both their games. Philippines have a 1-1 win-loss record.

Lyudmila Sedova scored five of her games nine points and Anastassia Alishauskite scored five of her team-high 18 in the second quarter as Kazakhstan outscored their opponents 15-6 in the second to move decisively ahead.

Oxana Ivanova and Mariya Protsenko took over from there and consolidated Kazakhstans position in the second half.

Ten of Protsenkos 12 for the game and eight of Ivanovas ten came in the second half.

Philippines played with their usual effervescence, but were outsized by the much taller Kazakhstan.

For the record, Kazakhstans average height is 182.45 cms as against Philippines 170 cms.
That Kazakhstan won the battle of boards 58-38 with Ivanova, Sedova and Natalya Kuzmicheva each collecting 11 rebounds reflected the difference in size.

Merenciana Arayis game-high 26 points was the highest for Philippines.

Chovi Borja chipped in with 16 points.

the team is just too small.

oh well....

^ Thanks.

So let me get this straight (correct me if i am wrong on this)

Philippines (as well as Level II teams) don't have the chance to qualify for the FIBA Worlds but has a chance to up their level.

Level II teams (where RP belongs) need to make the top four in their group then to the semis of this level (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3)

The winners from this point will battle the 5th and 6th teams in the other Level... And the winners of which will be elevated (or remain) on the next level and the losers will be relegated (or remain) on the other level. Correct?

Just posting this here. And yeah, i am a bit confused :D

It's like Davis Cup Tennis wherein teams are grouped into different levels and teams could be promoted and relegated due to their performance.

In the Womens FIBA-Asia, Only the the teams in Level I would be compeating for World stage slots. In this Chennai tournament, the top three teams from Level I will book their ticket to the 2010 FIBA World Championship for Women scheduled to be held in Czech Republic from Sept 23 to Oct 3, 2010. Please not unlike the Men's tournament, there is no Wildcard tournament or no Wildcard Qualifyers.

http://www.chennai2009.fibaasia.net/images/web/Events/10/FWCW/_org/road_to_CZE.jpg

The bottom 2 teams in Level I had the risk of being relegated to Level II. The Top 2 teams in Level II are rewarded by their performance in the current tournament by having the chance of promotion to Level I. The play-off would be:

Game 1: 5th Level I vs 2nd Level II
Game 2: 6th Level I vs 1st Level II

With the winners going to Level I and the losers to Level II for the next FIBA-Asia tournament in 2011.

PHI/UZB Filipinos scrape past Uzbekistan
19/09/2009

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - Philippines and Uzbekistan waged a see-saw battle before the former closed their defense together in the dying moments to eke out a 81-73 win in a Level II game on Saturday.

The win has left Philippines 2-1, while Uzbekistan are 1-2.

Joan Grajales scored on the paint to put Philippines 79-73 ahead, the highest lead for the team in the fourth quarter, and converted both the free-throws on Irina Poluninas unsportsmanlike foul.

That this lead came when there was very little time left on the clock proved decisive in Philippines favour.

For Grajales it was an ideal way to cap a fruitful day.

The 30-year-old had six assists and rebounds apiece to add meat to her game-high 22 points.

Fortunes for most part of the game had swung like a yo-yo, but Philippines solidified at just about the right juncture.

Philippines who turned the ball over 20 times in the first three quarters, pulled up their socks and cut it down to a mere three in the fourth quarter.

Merenciana Arayi maintained form with 20 points for Philippines.

Yelena Khusnitdinova was the highest scorer for Uzbekistan with 15 points.

Guzal Burieva, Polunina and Alla Krasovskaya each had 10 points.

Malaysia has the easiest road and will most likely net that top spot (4-1 record); Assuming we lose to Lebanon, they are going to climb to 3-1 and even they lose against Kaz, we'd still have the short end of the stick because we lost to both teams (tied at 3-2) which leaves us outside looking in...

Day 3 Level 2 Round-Up - Malaysia down Kazakhstan; Filipinos pip Uzbeks
19/09/2009

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - With four teams locked at two wins and one loss apiece, Sundays rest day is sure to be well utilized by the lead protagonists of the Level II competition here.

With two games left and a lot of cries-crossing results to be counted, the full effect of Saturdays results will be known only when the final whistle is blown.

None more than Philippines well-fought 81-73 triumph over Uzbekistan.

Malaysia and Lebanon had earlier in the day also posted their second win in three outings.

Malaysia defeated a much taller opponent for the second day running in their 71-57 win over Kazakhstan. And Lebanon carried too many guns to quash Sri Lanka 96-54.

The defeat pulled Kazakhstan to 2-1 and Sri Lanka are yet to win.

In terms of improvement in performance, Malaysia are way ahead than the rest of the teams not only in Level II, but the entire 12-team fray.

The SEABA nation rode on that very factor and handed Kazakhstan their first defeat.

Malaysia, who fell from Level I at the last edition in Incheon, thus improved their chances to regain their place in the elite group.

Ang Siew Teng came off the bench and led the Malaysian charge with a game-high 20 points.

Pee Yann Yann continued her good showing with 16 points and four assists.

Kazakhstan won the rebounds battle by a whopping 58-28 margin, but shot a miserable 28% in field.

Nataliya Kuzmicheva was the highest scorer with 18 points.

American Chantelle Andersons second quarter splurge put Lebanon in firm control and the West Asian hopefuls cruised along thereafter against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka did manage to breathe down on their much better-equipped rivals for a major part of the first quarter, when the scores were locked 20-20.

But Anderson who was rather subdued till then scored 13 of her game-high 22 points in the second quarter as Lebanon outscored Sri Lanka 29-11 and surged ahead.

Rebecca Akl continued the Akl familys services to Lebanese basketball elder brothers Rodrigue and Ralph play for the Lebanese mens teams with 16 points, in a superb 70% field record (7/10).

Premila Beruwalage was the highest scorer for Sri Lanka with 16 points, but eight of them in first quarter.

Philippines and Uzbekistan waged a see-saw battle before the former closed their defense together in the dying moments.

Fortunes for most part of the game had swung like a yo-yo, but Philippines solidified at just about the right juncture.

Philippines who turned the ball over 20 times in the first three quarters, pulled up their socks and cut it down to a mere three in the fourth quarter.

Joan Grajales had six assists and rebounds apiece to add meat to her game-high 22 points.

Merenciana Arayi maintained form with 20 points for Philippines.

Yes .... I know but I was really puzzled why the Lebanese players names and stats were suddenly removed from the Chennai website. As I said, my purpose was for Noli to get tips from the Lebanese on how they got FIBA Approval.

hmmm... i'm not sure about the tie-break that will be used just in case. but if KAZ and PHI end up identical 4-1 (assuming they both beat LIB), we might not be able to surpass the 19 point deficit in the loss to KAZ (assuming the rule is not winner over the loser, which i doubt is the rule for tie-breakers here). if the tie-break is PTS FOR - PTS AGST, then PHI has to beat SRI by more than 60 points to have a chance of surpassing KAZ (KAZ beat SRI by 54 pts).

best scenario is that PHI wins over LIB, and LIB wins over KAZ.

LIB is beatable as they lost to MAS by 15 pts. PHI beat MAS by 6 pts.

in any case, i think PHI is already overperforming. as i said before, the PHI lineup is not the best one sent to international competitions in recent years (2007 SEAG team is better, i think).

No. FIBA rules quotient is the same for all competitions so the win-over-the other apply.

If there's a lone tie between Kazakhstan and Philippines, we end up 2nd on that tiebreak because of the win-over-the-other rule.

In case there's a triple tie with Kazakhstan and Lebanon, the records are considered first then the quotients.

There's even a quadruple tie if Malaysia manages to lose to one of Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan.

i see. in that case, PHI has to beat LIB and LIB has to beat KAZ. I don't think MAS will lose to UZB.

if the above happens, PHI and MAS end up identical 4-1 and PHI gets no.1 because of the tie-break.

but at this point, the likeliest scenario is we're tied at no. 2 with KAZ. in which case, we lose the tie-break. we may also lose to LIB and end up tied at no.3, in which case we lose the tie-break again.

oh well....

at this point, we just have to pray. go team pilipinas!!! :)

cassie tioseco is obviously very articulate. also in the interview are joan grajales and aurora adriano.

by the way, charlene is what? 5'11"? if her busy sked permits, maybe she should try out for the team. :p

The girls basketball team made up of Jonah Mari Melendres, Tara Araneta, Danica Jose and Tricia Piatos with an RP team official during a break in their event.

Methinks the caption is wrong. So i'll try to identify the players (from L-R):
Danica Therese Jose, Tricia Piatos, Tara Araneta, Jonah Mari Melendres, and unidentified RP team official.

here's a vid of their game against sri lanka. the 6'1" danica jose is pretty impressive. now if only fretzie oyao can move like her, then the future looks bright for the philippines.

with less than 3 minutes to go at the 3rd qtr the Philippines is getting pumelled by Chantelle (15pts) and the Lebaneses women 59-33 as it is Chovi Borja who is the only one among the Filipinas who is finding a way to score with 19 pts. Everybody else was practically shutted down by Lebanon. They scouted our team so well that the Lebanese seem to know what our players would do before they could actually make their move.

The Philippines was simply outclassed by Lebanon as the Lebanese posted a 78-54 win. Only Chovi Borja was able to score for the Filipinas in the 1st three qtrs with 19 pts but the Lebanese was able to limit her to only 2 pts in the 4th qtr so she ended up with 21 pts and 4 rebounds for the whole game. When the game was practically over two other Pinays (Diana Jose and Cassie Tioseco) were able to finish at double figures at 11 pts as the next 2 scorers (Arayi and Tolentino) only managed 3 pts. Tioseco had 9 rebounds while Mercado had 2 assists, Arayi 2 steals and Grajales 6 rebounds 1 block. Not a single Filipina played more than 29 minutes as Coach Haydee kept on shuffling to get the right combination as 7 players played at least 20 minutes.

The top performers for Lebanon are Nasr 16 pts 5 rebounds 6 assists, Chantelle 15 pts 8 rebounds 2 assists and El Charif 10 pts 16 rebounds 2 steals 4 blocks. Najem also topscored at 16 pts and they got 14 pts from Alameddine. Anderson, El Charif, Aldmeddine and Nasr played more than 30 minutes while Najem had 24 minutes.

When I say "same predicament", I was referring more on them having represented other countries before. As for the salaries and finances, that's almost a given, considering that the RP women's team did not even have any international exposure etc.. But if SBP is really serious in beefing up not only the men's team but the women's team as well then perhaps the girls should be given a respectable financial compensation. Tiu's Discovery group will be very helpful and Mikee Romero as well. I've worked with Noli way back and I think he is open to the women's revitalization given the right talents.

we are really working on finding Filipino blooded talents overseas and are thankfull to the Discovery group, Ever Bilena and the other supporters of women's basketball but there is really a need for big money businesses to come in. MVP cant do it alone especially now he is also supporting Amateur Boxing and a lot of teams and individuals under the umbrella of SMART Sports. Mikee Romero is now preoccupied with the ABL and Philippine Cycling aside from the PBL.

Since we could not yet give basketball salaries so that our women's players can concentrate on playing we could not even attract filipinas based overseas to comeover. A number of them are willing to come but only for a short period of time as they need to earn a living. Even our more talented homegrown Female players had opted to work at the corporate world or become OFWs in order to earn a living. As of now our current women's team sponsors could only spare to give allowances but does not find it viable to give salaries for basketball.

the Philippines avoided a disastrous ending by recovering their bearing and beat Sri Lanka 70-55. Key were Arayi's 23 points and Tioseco's 11 rebounds.

I think another thing which we Filipinos should learn is to control our emotions after each game as an emotional loss usually affects our performance at the next game. I do not know how the other teams do it but we should learn to do so.

Despite the victory, a disappointing end to the Philippines' campaign. After a promising start in Game 1, we faltered. Lack of experience (and a naturalized player) was what hurt us the most. To win against Sri Lanka by only 15 points when others blew them out by 50 is almost like a loss in my mind. To totally dominate that game would have given momentum to our team for the next events.

Even on this last day, I was hoping for a Malaysia loss which would have moved us up in the rankings. But alas, you have to admire Malaysia, to come from behind and defeat both Lebanon and Uzbekistan. That is the kind of poise and end-game heroics we need.

I do think we will move up in the FIBA World Rankings, though. That is at least something to cheer about. I hope our Girls' Under-16 will do well in November!

I do feel we already found somebody who's capable of leading us .... Fretzie Oyao. At 17 years with a 6'6 height and still growing, it's just she needs the appropriate training in order to improve her capabilities. If only La Salle would let her join the SBP program, that would probably be a good start.

Basketball is our national sport, yet for some reason, the Thais and Malaysians dominate SEA on the women's side. I'm not sure I understand how and why. That's like if our women's football team were to dominate the Malaysian and Thai teams, both of which consider football their national sport -- it won't happen.

We need to take back what is rightfully ours! To be the best in basketball in SEA for both men's and women's (at all age levels)! C'mon SBP and other corporate supporters of women's hoops!

LIB/PHI Lebanese solidity takes them past Filipinos
21/09/2009

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - West Asian hopefuls Lebanon played were at their cohesive best in the Championship and overpowered Philippines 78-54 in a crucial Level II game on Monday.

The win took Lebanon to 3-1 and left them needing a win against Kazakhstan on Tuesday in order to qualify for the Level I play-offs.

Philippines sank to 2-2, but pin on their hopes on extraneous factors.

Sandra Najems strike of form was the singular reason for the Lebanese dazzle.

The Homentmen Antelias guard inducted only in the second quarter fired in nine points of her 14 points, as Lebanon pulled away from a tricky 18-14 lead to a comfortable 38-24 comfort going into the changing rooms.

I guess things are beginning to fall in place the way we want, finally, said Lebanon coach Elie Nasr.

Chirine El Charif rose to the occasion with a double-double 10 points and a staggering 16 rebounds.

Nayla Alameddine, Chada Nasr and Chantelle Anderson were significant as usual.

Alameddine and Nasr shared the scoring honours for Lebanon with 16 points each the latter adding value with five rebounds and six assists.

Andereson had a 6/11 field record for her 15 points and eight rebounds.

Chovi Borjas game-high 21 for Philippines went in a losing cause.

the Philippines avoided a disastrous ending by recovering their bearing and beat Sri Lanka 70-55. Key were Arayi's 23 points and Tioseco's 11 rebounds.

I think another thing which we Filipinos should learn is to control our emotions after each game as an emotional loss usually affects our performance at the next game. I do not know how the other teams do it but we should learn to do so.

@sir nardy

I watched this game on the Indian channel on cable TV and Arayi is really heads and shoulder above the rest of her teammates as far as talent and physique. I admire Tioseco's 11 boards but she's too frail IMHO and was easily pushed because of her high center of gravity.

Also caught the Malaysia-Uzbekistan game and the Malaysians have at least two real good 3-point threats and they're closely resembling the way the East Asians hoist their perimeter shots (with a little kick for that added push). I hope we can hire a shooting coach (maybe Chinese or Korean) for the ladies since I believe this skill will leap-frog us out of Level 2 when we get consistent at it.

The Malaysian Women also showed that having height disadvantage is not a hindrance to them. And I think our team is as tall or a bit bigger than our Southeast Asian neighbor. My observation on their players is that they are not awed nor are they intimidated even if the opposing team is much bigger. Unlike the Filipinas whose body language shows uneasiness before the start of their games against the Kazakhs and Lebanese.

Lebanon would be playing at Level I at the 2011 FIBA-Asia Championship for Women after they demolished Thailand, this year's 5th place Level I team. The Final Score was 83-58. So dominant were the Lebanese that Chantelle Anderson had 24 points and 15 rebounds. He was ably supported by Chada Nasr with 23 pts, 9 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals, Nisrin Dandan 15 pts, Chirine El Charif with 8 pts and 13 rebounds; and Nayla Alameddine with 4 pts, 5 assists and 7 rebounds. Thailand only had Suksomwong 21 pts, Banmoo 13 pts 8 rebounds, Jantakan 13 pts 8 assists and Mathuros 8 pts 7 rebounds leading their fight. Lebanon made their break-aways in the 2nd and 4th quarters.

LIB/THA Lebanon rout Thailand, enter Level I

http://www.chennai2009.fibaasia.net/images/web/Events/09/FASCW/daybyday/092309/tha-lib/_483x332/ADNA0429.jpg

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - Seasoned campaigner Nisrin Dandans solid second quarter display steered Lebanon towards a comfortable 83-58 win over Thailand.

The win achieved what Lebanon set out for a promotion to next editions elite Level I competition.

Thailand, on the other hand, will have to play the qualifying Level II in the edition for the first time after 1995.

Lebanon took their time to settle down, but grew in strength and confidence as the game progressed.

Dandan, the only member of the Lebanese womens team when they last played in the FIBA Asia Women Championship in 2001 in the Thai capital, sparked the Lebanese march.

The 32-year-old Antranik guard scored nine of her games 15 points in the second quarter and effected one steal as Lebanon found the missing link in their offense chain.

The girls had put themselves under tremendous pressure about this game and very nervous at the start. Nisrins presence and experience helped us calm the nerves, said Lebanon coach Elie Nasr.

The last time I was a part of the team things didnt really end happy. But this time around we had a great team. And if my contribution was to going to count, it had to be in this game, Dandan said.

Chada Nasr and Chantelle Anderson took over in the second half and Lebanons control on the proceedings and the scoreboard increased with every move.

American Anderson poured in 15 of her game-high 24 points and completed another double-double also grabbing 13 rebounds.

Chada Nasr who effected eight of her nine assists for the game in the first half stepped up her scoring and returned 23 points 16 of them in the second half.

This is what we came for, Chada Nasr said.

But this is only the beginning. We hope the interest for womens basketball in Lebanon grows, she added.

Its like this, said Elie Nasr.

The federation invested in this team and gave us an opportunity to play here. We are grateful for that, but more importantly we have given them enough reasons to invest more in Lebanese womens basketball, the coach added.

Charothai Sukomwong was the highest scorer for Thailand with 21 points.

IND / LIB India remain in elite level; Lebanon earn promotion - Sep 23, 2009 (by Maarouf Mawloud)

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship): India and Lebanon scored dominating victories in the Level I play-offs on Wednesday.

India gave their tallest player Harjeet Kaur the longest game-time in the Championship and defeated Malaysia 90-74 to retain their place in Level I.

Seasoned campaigner Nisrin Nisrin Dandan (172-G-77)s solid second quarter display had earlier steered Lebanon towards a comfortable 83-58 win over Thailand, and the promotion to play in Level I in the next edition.

Malaysia, who were relegated to Level II after losing to India in the play-off in the last edition, will have to wait for another two years to take a shot regaining their position in Level I.

And Thailand will play the Level II for the first time after 1995.

Lebanon took their time to settle down, but grew in strength and confidence as the game progressed.

Nisrin Dandan, the only member of the Lebanese womens team when they last played in the FIBA Asia Women Championship in 2001 in the Thai capital, sparked the Lebanese march.

The 32-year-old Antranik guard scored nine of her games 15 points in the second quarter and effected one steal as Lebanon found the missing link in their offense chain.

The girls had put themselves under tremendous pressure about this game and very nervous at the start. Nisrins presence and experience helped us calm the nerves, said Lebanon coach Elie Nasr.

The last time I was a part of the team things didnt really end happy. But this time around we had a great team. And if my contribution was to going to count, it had to be in this game, Nisrin Dandan said.

Nasr Chada (83) and Chantelle Anderson (199-C-81, college: Vanderbilt) took over in the second half and Lebanons control on the proceedings and the scoreboard increased with every move.

American Anderson poured in 15 of her game-high 24 points and completed another double-double also grabbing 13 rebounds.

Nasr Chada who effected eight of her nine assists for the game in the first half stepped up her scoring and returned 23 points 16 of them in the second half.

This is what we came for, Nasr Chada said.

But this is only the beginning. We hope the interest for womens basketball in Lebanon grows, she added.

Its like this, said Elie Nasr.

The federation invested in this team and gave us an opportunity to play here. We are grateful for that, but more importantly we have given them enough reasons to invest more in Lebanese womens basketball, the coach added.

Charothai Sukomwong was the highest scorer for Thailand with 21 points.

India owed their success to a change in their game-plan coming to age of Harjeet Kaur.

Harjeet had averaged 13 minutes per game in Indias five previous outings, but fielded her for 30:51 today.

And the 190-cm forward justified the faith reposed in her by returning a game-high 31 points, much higher than the 2.8PPG she carried into the game.

The 21-year-old also collected 16 rebounds another game-high again much higher than the 3RPG she had earlier.

Geethu Anna Joses 21 points and 11 rebounds thus found some unprecedented support.

It was a part of our game plan to use our height advantage, said India coach JP Singh about using Harjeet for the long period of time.

Our coach told us this morning we have one bullet left. We can either use it well or die in the battle. Just that things worked well for us, said Harjeet.

I think motivation was the key factor for us today, said JP Singh.

True we had lost all the games in Level I, but if we had lost today, we would have had to wait for another four years to play in the top level. And I think all the girls were aware of that, he added.

Malaysia were caught by surprise by Harjeets extended presence on the court, but more importantly their three-pointer percentage suffered.

We didnt expect Harjeet to play that long at all. We had made our plans for Geethu and Kiranjeet Kaur. But this was a surprise, Malaysia coach Tan See Wah said.

In a way we have helped India realize Harjeets potential, he chuckled.

Goh Beng Fong was the highest scorer for Malaysia with 15 points and Pee Yann Yann contributed 14.

Day 5 Level 2 Round-Up - Malaysia, Lebanon make play-off - Sep 22, 2009 (by Maarouf Mawloud)

CHENNAI (23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship) - Malaysia and Lebanon booked their place in the Level I play-off with eye-catching, albeit for different reasons, wins to round off their Level II campaigns on Tuesday.

Malaysia played an incredible final five minutes outscoring Uzbekistan 24-7 and eked out a 78-77 win.

Lebanon also defeated a Middle Asian nation team but dominated Kazakhstan throughout before winning 83-58.

Philippines completed the Middle Asian rout beating Sri Lanka 70-55.

Malaysia, now will take on the sixth placed team from Level I in all probability India, a team they lost to in the play-off in the last edition.

We have our plans ready, Malaysia coach Tan See Wah said.

Obviously it will revolve around stopping Geethu (Anna Jose) and we are ready to play her, he added.

The girls have showed a lot of spirit in winning a couple of very good games, including today. Now we need to continue that for one more game, he said.

Against Uzbekistan, down 54-70 midway through the fourth quarter, Kew Suik-may fired in a three-pointer to kick start Malaysias resurgence.

The 26-year-old went on to score four more points during the rest of the game and topped the scoring for Malaysia with 18 points.

Yong Shin-min scored 13 for the game six of them in the final five minutes and Goh Beng Fong scored all her seven during this time.

Pee Yann Yann had five of 11 as Uzbekistan were left gasping.

Irinina Polunina topped the game in scoring with 19 points, but none in the dying moments and only two in free-throws at that of Yelena Khusnitdinovas 18 came in the closing moments.

Uzbekistan, thus finished 1-4 and took the fifth place.

American Chantelle Anderson, naturalized recently, led the Lebanese barrage against Kazakhstan.

The former WNBA player scored 10 points and grabbed six rebounds in the opening quarter as the Elie Nasr maintained a firm control of the proceedings right from the word go never to give it up.

Anderson went on to return a double-double of 23 points and 13 rebounds both game-highs.

Chirine El Charif (185-F-84) grabbed a dozen rebounds and points each

Chada Nasr was as crafty as ever in making the plays and scoring as well.

The Antranik star had a game-high five assists to go with her five rebounds and 13 points.

Sandra Najem too had 13 points.

The team is coming along very well, said Elie Nasr.

We have definitely improved from the first game. But I think we are beginning to play the way we should. The last two games especially have been very satisfying, he added.

Nataliya Kuzmicheva continued her good work for Kazakhstan and led their scoring with 15 points.

Nadezhda Kondrakova contributed 14 points.

Kazakhstan finished third in Level II.

Merenciana Arayis game-high 23 points and Cassandra Tiescos 11 rebounds were the significant factors in the Filipino victory.

Philippines thus finished fourth.

Sri Lanka who had finished 12th in the Incheon edition of the Championship two years ago remained in that position.

Premila Beruwalage and Inoka Juwan Pedige led the scoring for Sri Lanka with 12 points each.

IND Twelve in fray for inaugural FIBA Asia U16 Championship for Women

PUNE (FIBA Asia U16 Championship for Women) Twelve teams drawn into two groups of six teams each will match wits in the inaugural FIBA Asia U16 Championship for Women to be played in this historic city near India's financial capital Mumbai from Nov 30-Dec 6, 2009. The draw for the Championship was conducted on Monday, along side the draw for the FIBA Asia U16 Championship (for Men) at Malaysian city Johor Bahru, which will host the men's event.

"Since this was the inaugural Championship, we decided to conduct a draw for the preliminary round," explained FIBA Asia Secretary General Dato' Yeoh Choo Hock.

"From the next Championship, we will consider dividing the teams will be divided into Level I and II like how we do for the other women's events," he added.

The top two teams from the Championship will represent FIBA Asia in the inaugural FIBA U17 World Championship for Women to be played in France from July 16-25, 2010.

Ten of the teams figuring in the FIBA Asia U16 Championship for Women played in the recently concluded 23rd FIBA Asia Women Championship.

Singapore and Hong Kong replace Lebanon and Uzbekistan from the fray that played at Chennai, but neither of them are new comers to FIBA Asia competitions especially among women.

Hosts India have been drawn in Group A, which also features China and Chinese Taipei. Both Singapore and Hong Kong have been drawn in Group A with Philippines completing the challenge.

Korea and Japan head the competition in Group B with challenge coming from Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Kazakhstan.

The top two teams from each group will qualify for the semifinals. The winners of the semifinals will play for the gold medal and the losers for the bronze.

The teams playing the gold medal game would have already qualified for the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championship for Women.

Groupings for Preliminary Round:

Group A: China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, India, Philippines, Singapore
Group B: Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka.

Sir Nardy, is there a continous program for the women's elite team?
Are they still in practice? I just got curious because Machiko told me she is attending the practices every once in a while so it got me to thinking that maybe they are still in continous training even though they are not looking forward to competing in the near-future as there's no basketball in the SEA Games..

And about Machiko, she refuses to answer if she would make a comeback..:D:D:D But she's attending some of the practices..atleast, that's what she told me..

Am not really sure but probably the team which became close to each other decided it is wiser to train together even if there is no immediate international tournament to compete in plus maybe Machiko is just trying to get back to shape coz didn't she gone to Japan for awhile. The Women's National Team just competed in the FIBA-Asia so aside from the school teams they are a team which Machiko could practice with. From what I know the WPBL is soon to open, so maybe Machiko is preparing to join that league.

kinda off topic but i guess there is a need for SBP to help map a plan for the women's basketball too. thailand and malaysia are slowly carving out names in this region. even in volleyball where it used to be china, korea and japan. now thailand is the new asian champion dethroning china. if we are able to set up smart gilas for the men's basketball, maybe we can put up as well same program for the women's.

Blind Plan

Indian basketball coach Trithesh Guha feels performance on the day will be more important than strategy

By Salil Kulkarni
Posted On Saturday, November 21, 2009 at 01:13:41 AM

Trithesh Guha interacts with the players during a practice session Pune: It sounds a bit strange and also surprising that the Indian basketball coach Trithesh Guha has no strategy and plans for the forthcoming FIBA Asian Basketball u-16 Girls Championship.

The reason given by the coach is that it is the first tournament of its kind in Asia, where performance on a particular day will work out rather than a strategy or a plan.

The twelve-nation tournament which begins from November 30 at Sports Complex , will be the first international basketball tournament to be held in the city.

The Indian team along with the coach arrived in the city on Friday and started their training at the Table Tennis hall venue for the championship.

The team went through a stretching session under the guidance of Trithesh Guha, who took some time out and spoke to Pune Mirror on the teams preparation and the teams chances in the event.

Excerpts
How the preparation has been so far ?
I have been with the team for the last two months and the camp at Bolpur (West Bengal) was the only and ideal way to prepare for the event.

You said only;, whats the reason ?
In the 14-member team only two players have international expo-sure. Rest of the players have only played national events. Few matches against international teams during the camp would have made a lot of difference. During the camp we played against a lot of practice matches against Bolpur district teams and I am happy to say that we lost just one match. We even defeated the West Bengal junior mens team.

Which country start as favourites ?
Hard to say, in the age group level tournaments. Its anybody game. Going by the records China and Japan. They are top two womens team at the international level.

Have you designed any strategy or a plan for the event ?
No strategy and no plan. We have not even decided our formation and still are working on it.

No strategy, no plan ?
You can design a strategy only if you have some idea or know your opponents. There is no information available about any team. This event will be on how you play on a particular day and for a change strategy will take a backseat.

Any players to watch out for ?
All 14 are good. All the players are equal for me I will not take any names.

Any goals set for the championship ?
Too early to say anything. But we are aiming to finish in the top-4. The team will surely all the teams a tough fight. You will see this team not giving up easily.

Problem is that our senior players cannot really devote full time as they need to make a living. Corporate Sponsors are not willing to give salaries to the players and are only ok to give allowances which are quite small.

Hopefully in due time the Commercial Women's Leagues would get enough support from the public.

Also the school leagues are getting better. Hope to get a PCCL type of tournament but again, the problem is sponsorship. At this time of recession and with election next year, money is not easy to get.

Is this an SBP or BAP-affiliated league? I'm quite confused because its supported by Pichay but there's an RP team involved in the tournament.

As I have mentioned before, joining a BAP-sponsored tournament does not automatically mean outright support for BAP. What it exposes is the lack of competition in those areas they are now claiming to serve. The ill thing about it though, is that there might be the expectation of support as a form of utang na loob

this should be look into seriously by SBP, Our women's national team and/or youth team joining a league run by BAP personalities? hope the SBP could really organize an NBTC-like tournment for the girls division and a commercial league for the women's sector.
