Me too...i will make this as one of my to do list for this year...im excited to see the future of the philippine RP team. we may try not to put our bets on these kids but being a Filipino die hard fan of basketball, im sure we will. :cool:

so can we post here the schedule of the actual games...i love to see gabe norwood teaching real basketball lessons to these kids that may toughen up and be a better baller. hehehe

or jervy cruz crushing whatever interior defense they put on him...let the learning begin...:D

If what they say is true about Philip Paredes. That he is a 16-year-old 6-6 behemoth then here is a possibility:

He can still grow taller which might make him reach 6'7" - 6'9". Since he'll be playing the 4-5 positions, I bet he can be a promising player in the future; however, I wanna watch him first play his game b4 I jump into anything else.

if he can beat junmar fajardo 1 on 1, he's ok. i think the disparity in age is not that big since fajardo is just 18 or 19 yrs old only.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe Gian Chiu was 6'7" when he was 17-years-old. Now he's 6'9" which reminds me, don't worry about GChiu's pt making because it's his defense we need.

Read some good feedback about Pepot Paredes from those who've seen him play thus far. He's only 15 or 16, so he'll likely grow at least an inch more, hopefully even more in the coming years, to 6'7" or 6'8".

JUSTIN CHUA, JUNMAR FAJARDO & PHILIP PAREDES, possibly the future, quality Centers in Philippine basketball.

we are still in the stage forming the national rp youth team. we already have shortlisted list of players. they are very promising players but lack in height. We don't have 7 footers like some countries do specially china and iran. hopefully this team will do good.

Unfortunately, we still in a "dire" need of a tall player to man the middle. But one thing is good though, the current Philippine youth team coach is the very best right now to handle the job. Good luck to Lebanon too, see you at the next youth asian championship. What are your chances by the way ?

Honestly,last year we didn't perform good in Waba U17 in iran,maybe bcz we went without a coach, and with the absence of the 3 best players in the youth team.This year hopefully Bashir Saad and Hayk Kokojian who are training in USA will join the team,plus a new coach has taken the responsibility of the team.

Paredes is actually in the RP Youth Team. You should watch more PBL games to see him. However, he suffered an injury (I think it was an ankle sprain) but will recover in time to make it to the Abunassar camp.

I'm more excited about Kyle Pascual out of Esperanza HS in LA, though. This kid is a stud. 6'5", 210 pounds, a junior in high school, can shoot the lights out.

School in the US and Canada ends in May. They may not have enough time to jell with the rest of the team. Then again, it's SEABA, so what the hell. We're gonna beat the rest of the field with or without them anyway. :D

There's nothing to prove really or a need to seek vengeance, we lost by a mere 8 points (85-93) to the Indons with their imports in full force.

“We’re not aware one of the Philippine imports won’t be allowed to play. Even then, I was surprised how they challenged us playing the game mostly with a local lineup. I salute the Philippine team,” said SM Britama-Indonesia coach Fictor Roring, a former ward of Filipino coach Nat Canson.

It is interesting to note that our Indonesian friends are gaining ground in southeast asian basketball, beating a very good Philippine ballclub is an achivement in itself. We still command respect and admiration from our neighbors.

Kudos to SM Britama, a well deserved win.:) ;)

I'd say we go all Filipino against Zamar's Malaysian team.

We are still the powerhouse in southeast asia are we not ? a single loss wouldn't mean that the quality of basketball in the Philippines is going on a downtrend. The Indonesians are just simply getting better each year, thanks to our coaches and local players recruited as imports in the IBL whom they now employ.

Harbour Centre, is one of the best amateur ballclub, the hottest in fact in the PBL, being beaten by the Indonesians is a great achievement for our neighbor regardless of imports.

It is also interesting to note, that when they recruited Sam Ekwe, their offensive and defensive pattern was centered (focused) on this Nigerian behemoth. His inability to play did them in. Harbour Centre was not prepared for that.

I'd say again, against Zamar's Malaysian team, we go all Filipino. They are a much better cohesive unit playing without imports. That I want to see.

They can vindicate "the Harbour team". Let us hope we have the right preparation.

We have added two filipino-american players, Pascual and Torres, i hope the SBP would provide this time with the proper documentaion and certification in regards to Pascual and Torres. As what happened to Sam Ekwe.

IMO, I couldn't really say that Indons truly have beaten us in an equal battle... true that Coach Boyzie might have been a factor to this but, I mean their 2 imports did most of the damage, in fact, scored more than half of the whole team's total points... Could they had manhandled Harbour Center if they both played importless? I don't think so really... :)

well, at least we're still in the FIBA Asia Club Championships. That is what matters right now...

Against a selection of UAAP/NCAA stars ?, the Indonesian National Team (the very best in Indonesian basketball) will prevail hands down.

But against a selection of South Korean or mainland Chinese college basketball stars ? they'll blow us out. These young guys can even compete with the best teams in the Philippine Basketball League (PBL).

To borrow a quote from one of our Lebanese friends, indeed a historical day for Indonesian basketball to beat the best performing and the hottest amateur basketball team, Harbour Centre with one lousy import in Michael LeBlanc.

KOREKEK (Correct), :D SM Britama is being coached by Fictor Roring, a former ward of Filipino coach Nat Canson, the same indonesian team who gave the same Harbour Centre team a rude awakening in the 2007 SEABA club championship, that with two good imports they are capable of beating the best amateur ballclub the Philippines could offer.

The Indonesian mindset and confidence had grown in just a year, with the right preparation and extreme luck they got a chance. The Philippines never learned from this lesson, even if we're still the best in southeast asia, an ill-prepared and over confident amateur team can be beaten. I guess in their early years, they never really joined the boy scouts of the Philippines or forgotten what is to be ready.

The Philippines was then represented by Northern Cement Consolidated (NCC) in the 1985 World Interclub Tournament in Gerona, Spain, featuring 4 champion teams from Europe, Asia and the United States. In this tournament, the Philippines lost to the US by a rout in the first game, failing to cope with the solid zone defense employed by the Americans. In the second game, they lost by a solitary point against the Brazilians, 78-77, before defeating Banco De Roma, Italy to achieve third place in the tournament.

We still have the bragging rights that no current asian club team can duplicate that feat another page in our great basketball history.

And correction, sorry my bad, it was the Spanish crowd not the Italian crowd who went gaga over the smallest team in the tournament.

The player being referred to is guard Oliver Sejas Tingin. He was a role player in Malaysia's 2002 Young Men's NT that competed in the SEABA Championship held here against the likes of Britt Reroma, Christian Coronel, Ronnie Zagala, Patrick Tiongco, Mark Kong, Jenkins Mesina, Romar Menor, Mark Magsumbol, Yancy de Ocampo, Ranidel de Ocampo, Ervin Sotto and Nelbert Omolon and coached by the legendary Boycie "Alamat" Zamar (ironically the new Malaysian NT coach).

Tingin should be around 27 years old by now. He even shared stories that he grew up in the Cubao, Quezon City area before going to Malaysia with his family, using a mix of English and Tagalog as his language! Tingin even inquired about playing in Filipino leagues.

RP Youth takes on Malaysia in opener



The Nokia-Philippine Youth team opens its title bid against Malaysia when the SEABA Championship for Junior Men starts on May 1 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas Executive Director Patrick Gregorio said the Nationals, who are currently fine-tuning in the PBL tournament, leave for the Malaysian capital on April 28.

After the Malaysians, the Nationals take on Thailand the following day before going up against Indonesia on May 4.

Singapore will be the last team they will face in the single-round, five-country tournament which is limited to players 18 years and under.

The No.1 team after the elims will be declared champion.

So far, there are 19 aspirants in the team but coach Franz Pumaren hopes to cut it to 15 by next week.

Aside from playing in the PBL, the team trained for two week in the USA recently.

Gregorio sees the host team as the country’s toughest opponent in the five-day tournament.

Expected to lead the team are Xavier’s Gabriel Banal, Ryan Garcia, Mark Lopez, Mark Mendoza, Frank Golla, Jaypee Mendoza, Joel De Guzman, Jed Manguera, John Sumido and Jairold Flores.

Other members of the team are Philip Paredes, Jeric Tang, Joseph Terso, Jerome Ramos and Ian Sangalang. —Rey C. Lachica




Youth 5 opens SEABA campaign vs Malaysia
By Nelson Beltran
Friday, April 18, 2008

The Nokia RP Youth team will be facing four challengers in the sixth SEABA junior men championship, starting its campaign versus host Malaysia on May 1 at the MABA gym in Kuala Lumpur.

The youth tournament will be a short one round-robin affair like in the recent SEABA men’s championship in Ratchaburi, Thailand, the SEA Games in Nakhon Ratchasima also in Thailand and the SEABA Champions Cup in Jakarta, Indonesia, with the team with the best record after the event automatically declared champion.

Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore are the three other teams entered in the competition serving as qualifier for the FIBA-Asia youth championship in Tehran, Iran late this year.

The RP juniors of coach Franz Pumaren take on the Thais on May 2, the Indons on May 4 and the Singaporeans in the final day of competition on May 5.

Pumaren is hopeful they can dominate the tourney especially with the addition of two foreign-based Filipino young behemoths in Norbert Torres from Toronto, Canada and Kyle Pascual from California, USA.

Participation in the ongoing PBL Lipovitan Amino Sports Cup, Pumaren said, could also hone up the team looking to regain the Asian youth crown the country last won in 1981 under the program of then basketball project director Danding Cojuangco.

Nokia RP Youth squad to shape up in NBA training center

By Jasmine W. Payo
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 22:34:00 02/29/2008

NO LESS than the training ground of NBA superstars will serve as the summer camp of the Nokia Philippine Youth Team.

The under-18 squad mentored by Franz Pumaren will head for the Abunassar Impact Basketball (AIB) at Carson City, California in the United States for an intensive two-week training program starting March 15.

AIB has been the venue for off-season training sessions of NBA superstars including Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics, Detroit Pistons' Chauncey Billups and Tayshaun Prince, New Jersey Nets' Vince Carter, Utah Jazz's Andrei Kirilenko, Golden State Warriors' Baron Davis and former Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker.

Joe Abunassar, the head trainer of the camp, has also worked with the legendary, feisty college mentor Bobby Knight.

AIB features a 125-acre, state-of-the-art athletic complex that boasts of three NBA regulated hardwood courts, world-class weight and performance facilities and 18 teaching stations.

"We'll try to be a very defensive team," said Pumaren, who will be assisted by his younger brother Dindo, Sandy Arespacochaga and Jack Santiago.

"Like what I stressed to the players, I don't think we can outscore our opponents, especially in the Asian level," Pumaren added. "So we'll try to be really aggressive, press a lot and give emphasis more on defense. I think that's the only way for us to compete."

The Nokia RP Youth Team is composed of team captain Frank Golla of Ateneo, La Salle Zobel's Jed Manguera, Xavier's Gabriel Banal and Alvin Teng<(maybe this was a typo), University of the Philippines' Mark Lopez, Joseph Tolentino and Joseph Marata, National University's Jovet Mendoza and Joseph Terso, Far Eastern's Ryan Roose Garcia, Jose Rizal's Jerome Ramos, St. Benilde's Mark Joel de Guzman, Tarlac State's Jaypee Mendoza, Iloilo Central High School's Jhon Sumido and Jairod Flores and Sacred Heart-Cagayan de Oro's Philip Paredes.

The squad will plunge into its first international competition in the Southeast Asian Basketball Association (Seaba) youth tournament in Malaysia on May 1, followed by the Asian Youth Championship in Iran in September.

The 2002 Philippine NT18 players have to play in PBA? I know they're vulnerable and they were trashed out to PBL teams by 50points. Where they are? They're all bust!!! I know that Rommel Balboa of former UPHDS is already to play for Brgy.Potrero team in Inter-Barangay league of Malabon even he have not residence there.

I...don't understand what you're implying here but who is this Rommel Balboa? I'm from Malabon and I haven't heard of him playing here.

Well, thing is, Kyle Pascual and Norbert Torres are based in the US and Canada, respectively. They'd finish schooling there and maybe, just maybe, they'd return here to play pro ball like Gabe Norwood.

If RP want to win the game depend on force,OK you are win !But i think it's not play basketball.
I head many RP poster here said RP is just for the basketball game.
Now i see some defferent one.
But if we real need to face that kind of" basketball players",our NT just need a SAN DA player like DONG JIANJUN 208CM,he just need one foul to knock
down that 7'3'' wrestler.
But do you think that's basketball sports?

Some are just trying to put some humor to the subject, which to certain extent is okay because a lot of our posters here tend to be super serious on the subject.

It isn't easy to get live feeds of games, especially in tournaments held abroad and which do not have a big enough ASEAN audience to justify sending a broadcast crew.

For the SEA Games, for example, NBN 4 did not send a crew of cameramen and OB vans. Instead, they relied on the raw transmissions of Thai TV (hence the misspellings in the names of players) and overdubbed them with broadcast crews (Chino Trinidad) at the international broadcast center at the SEA Games village.

Let's face it. The Malaysians, except for Dato Yeoh, do not even give a damn about their junior team. Only the Philippines does, and I'm willing to bet every cent I have that NBN's budget people have decided that their boring talk show "BOSES" has a better potential audience share than the future of Filipino basketball. Talk about screwed-up priorities. :D

NOKIA PILIPINAS SCORES CONVINCING WIN OVER MALAYSIA 98-67
by Val Victa (http://rpyouth.com)


Kuala Lumpur 2245hrs - After a shaky first half which saw our national team down by 4 points 43-47, the Nokia Pilipinas RP Youth Team pulled their act together to give defending champion Malaysia its first numbing loss 98-67.

The crucial turnaround happened in the third quarter when our boys buckled down to business and clamp down on defense limiting Malaysia to only 4 points in the entire quarter. Power forward Gabriel Banal, son of coach Joel Banal (who was also rooting among the pinoy OFW crowd) shot the vital point that tied the two teams 49 all on his free throw and from that moment on the host team's defense degenerated as he (Banal) together with Norberto Torres, Kyle Pascual, Joseph Emmanuel Tolentino, Samuel Joseph Marata, and Mark Joel de Guzman combined for a 29 point explosion that saw the team up at the end of the third quarter 72-51.

A zealous pinoy OFW crowd led by Consul Marford Angeles came to provide the team with invaluable moral support. And though they were grossly outnumbered by a home team mob that was there in full force due to the holiday (May 1 Labor Day) our OFW brothers and sisters, filling only one fourth of the stadium, refused to be drowned out and cheered and screamed at every hard earned point the team put in. Team Malaysia lost two of its star players duw to cramps at the beginning minutes of the fourth quarter which contributed greatly to the teams offensive effectivity. Coach Franz Pumaren at the end credited the boys superior physical conditioning as the key to this victory. "The worst is not yet over as our team is set to square off with Thailand tomorrow" says Pumaren. "That's why I'm sending them off to bed early right after our victory dinner with Mr. Jun Sy".



Quarter scores: 1st quarter: Malaysia 27 Philippines 19, 2nd quarter: Malaysia 20 Philippines 24, 3rd quarter: Malaysia 4 Philippines 29, 4th Quarter: Malaysia 16 Philippines 26. Total: Malaysia 67 Philippines 98



Individual scores: Garcia: 9, Manguera: 5, Sangalang: 7, Terso: 2, J. Mendoza: 4, Marata: 9, Golla: 7, De Guzman: 11, Tolentino: 9, Pascual: 10, Torres: 9, Banal: 16

With two 6-foot-6's and one 6-foot-7 their future looks bright.

I guess coach Franz did a terrific job in adjusting to the game in the second half by outscoring the Malaysians 29 to 4. The lack of scouting or unfamiliarity of the opposition, most likely, led to a slow start in the first half.

Good first win for the kids, and looking forward for another one against Thailand.

Malaysia thrashed in opener
By: DEVINDER SINGH

DEFENDING champions Malaysia were outclassed 98-67 by the Philippines in their opening match of the Southeast Asian Junior Men's Basketball Championship at the Maba Stadium in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Malaysia held a 47-43 lead at halftime but were blown away in the third quarter as the Philippines embarked on a 18-0 run to break a 49-49 tie.

The Philippines ended the quarter with a 72-51 lead.

Malaysia were unable to reduce the deficit in the fourth quarter as the Philippines cruised through.

"Tiredness crept in which caused my boys to lose concentration. They failed to follow instructions and started playing their individual game which cost us this match," said a displeased Malaysia coach Tan Kok Heng.

RESULTS -- Thailand 82 Indonesia 50; Philippines 98 Malaysia 67.

FIXTURES -- Today: Philippines v Thailand (6pm); Singapore v Malaysia (8.45pm) (Note: all matches at Maba Stadium).

You should scrap that Philippine Flag from your avatar [unnecessary]. Any team playing for flag and country should be supported by their countrymen. or maybe your canadian fil players would much rather play for Canada or for themselves. If they wanted to strut their wares for the country they should have tried to get in touch with the SBP. Did they? No. so quit bitching around about quality of opponents. Winning is a hell of a lot better than losing in a qualifying tournament. If they were losing you would have had more criticism about this team. Quality of opponents will improve once they start playing the best of asia after this tourney. Oh wait, or are you saying that the Canadian-fil team is better that Chnia, Iran, South Korea, Lebanon or Japan? Maybe you should put up your own country [unnecessary] :cool: :eek:

It is the Southeast Asian regional tournament for the young men's basketball. Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines.

It happens to be that the number 1 sports in the Philippines is Basketball while for the other nations it is Football (Soccer).

Malaysia back in the hunt with huge win over Singapore

The Star Online -Saturday May 3, 2008
byAftar Singh

KUALA LUMPUR: Defending champions Malaysia bounced back from their opening day defeat to the Philippines to trounce a hapless Singapore 101-47 in the SEABA boys’ basketball championship at the Maba Stadium last night.

Malaysia are now back in the hunt for a top two finish in the tournament, which will enable them to qualify for the Asian qualifying tournament in Iran in September.

Malaysia, who lost to the Philippines 67-98 on Thursday, were aggressive against the Singaporeans and took a comfortable 30-4 lead in the first quarter before extending it to 58-13 in the second.

Malaysia continued to pile on the points for an 89-30 lead in the third quarter before slowing down the pace in the final quarter.

Ooi Beng Seang and Ong Chun Khee were the top scorers for Malaysia, contributing 17 points each.

National coach Tan Kok Heng said their real challenge would be against Thailand today.

“Our hopes of finishing in the top two hinges on the outcome of this tie. The Thais gave the Filipinos a good fight and they will definitely be going all out to get the better of us,” said Kok Heng.

The Philippines defeated Thailand 92-76 in the other match yesterday.

RESULTS

Philippines 92 Thailand 76, Singapore 47 Malaysia 101.

TODAY'S FIXTURES

Indonesia vs Singapore (7pm) Malaysia vs Thailand (9pm)

On the 9PM schedule, Thailand will prevail.

I think our young basketball players from CESAFI are much better, whereas, the Top 20 schools in Ontario (province of Canada) are much better off playing ice hockey.:D :)

You should scrap that Philippine Flag from your avatar [unnecessary]. Any team playing for flag and country should be supported by their countrymen. or maybe your canadian fil players would much rather play for Canada or for themselves. If they wanted to strut their wares for the country they should have tried to get in touch with the SBP. Did they? No. so quit bitching around about quality of opponents. Winning is a hell of a lot better than losing in a qualifying tournament. If they were losing you would have had more criticism about this team. Quality of opponents will improve once they start playing the best of asia after this tourney. Oh wait, or are you saying that the Canadian-fil team is better that Chnia, Iran, South Korea, Lebanon or Japan? Maybe you should put up your own country [unnecessary] :cool: :eek:

nope...I'm just saying that it's not the time to celebrate or be proud yet. wait till they start winning against good caliber teams...then I'll be the first one to congratulate them :)

so, relax...don't be boosting rpyouth too much...they need a lot of hardwork to improve... they won't improve against low quality teams:)

actually, with all due respect, basketball is not for pinoys...basketball is for tall people. :p

Not exactly. Though most good basketball players are tall, there are also those who are no gifted with height but are as good or even better thatn taller players. Tall people have their advatage, but overall it's skill which determines the winner. All you have to do is to use your strength.

No one was overhyping the RP Youth Team, people were just appreciating the fact that they won.

Malaysia down Thailand to stay in hunt for second place
By AFTAR SINGH
Sunday May 4, 2008
http://thestar.com.my

KUALA LUMPUR: Defending champions Malaysia put up a gutsy display to defeat Thailand 85-68 for their second consecutive win in the SEABA boys basketball championship at the Maba Stadium here last night.

With the win, Malaysia have a good chance of finishing second in the five-nation meet. The top two finishers in the meet will compete in the Asian qualifying tournament in Iran in September.


It’s mine: Malaysia’s Ong Chun Khee (left) vying for the ball with Thailand’s Montananuchart Nuttapol and Muangboon Nattakarn during the SEABA boys championship last night. Malaysia won 85-68. – SIA HONG KIAU / The Star

Malaysia, who won the tournament in 2002 and 2006, however, had to stave off a strong challenge from Thailand, who are trained by former Malaysian coach American Felton Sealey, before prevailing.

The erratic Malaysians trailed 13-24 in the first quarter before storming back to level at 37-37 in the second quarter.

Thailand rested sharp-shooter Sukhdave Ghogar in the third quarter after he had committed four fouls in the second quarter. Another foul and he would have been out of the match.

In his absence, Malaysia took a 39-37 lead at the start of the third quarter and from then on dominated the match to win by 17 points with Ong Chun Khee the top scorer with 28 points.

The Philippines, who won the first two matches against Malaysia and Thailand, are tipped to win the tournament.

National coach Tan Kok Heng said that he was delighted with his charges for their fighting spirit.

“I was a bit upset in the first quarter as we made several errors and were trailing. But we managed to overcome Thailand, who are our biggest hurdle in the tournament.

“We are just one match away from finishing second in the tournament to qualify for the Asian qualifiers in Iran,” said Kok Heng.

Malaysia take on Indonesia tomorrow.

“I am confident that we will give our best to beat Indonesia,” said Kok Heng.

Indonesia are last in the standings after losing their second straight match. Indonesia, who lost to Thailand in the first match, were beaten 50-68 by Singapore yesterday.

Results:

Indonesia 50 Singapore 68;

Malaysia 85 Thailand 68.

Today:

Thailand vs Singapore (7.00pm);

Philippines vs Indonesia (9.00pm).

"There were some reports that cited that one or two of the Malaysian Youth players look a bit more "mature" for an 18-year old (ahem).

With this loss to the RP Youth team, though, I sort of get the feeling that we might end up seeing more "mature" 18-year olds from other teams come the next Youth tournament. After all, if 1-2 "mature" 18-year olds are not enough to help them win against us, then more of these "mature" 18-year olds might do the trick."

overage players is an issue in the youth tournaments expect more in the asian champs

Safe in RP-Nokia’s hands?
By Jun Lomibao

KUALA LUMPUR—At 2-0 in a five-team field and with the strength—and especially the weakness—of Indonesia and Singapore no longer a mystery, the RP-Nokia Youth team could very well be labeled as champions of the seventh Southeast Asia Basketball Association Junior Men Championship.

But for head coach Franz Pumaren and his battery of staff who would not leave anything to chance, the job is not done yet. In fact, they intend to go all-out in their two remaining games against the Indons at 9 p.m. Sunday and the Singaporeans at 6 p.m. on the last day, Monday at the Maba Gym here.

We’re still going to play hard,” said Pumaren Sunday noon, as the entire delegation celebrated the 45th birthday of team manager and TAO Corp. head Julio Sy Jr. at the Seri Angasa revolving restaurant atop the Kuala Lumpur Tower. “I believe the boys are going for a clean slate and we are going for the juggernaut.”

The Philippines was champion of the Seaba Junior Men in 2004, but was unable to defend in 2006 because of the International Basketball Association (Fiba) suspension on the country that lasted almost two years.

“We are considering our last two games as carryovers to the Asians,” explained Pumaren. “We don’t want to create bad habits here. We want to end the campaign on a winning note.”

In this championship for young men aged 18 or younger and where the top two would advance to the Fiba-Asia level in September in Tehran, the Filipinos have become not only the favorites but the barometers of sorts. And that’s what’s keeping the team on its toes for its last two outings.

“We have shown what we could do, and we have become the barometer here. That’s why every team here would like to play its best when it plays us,” said Pumaren. “And with that, we could not relax.”

Malaysia was a scare in the first two quarters on opening day Thursday, but then, the hosts went for the aggressive press early and could not last long enough and lost, 98-67. In that game where the Filipinos were calculating and furious from all over, three Malaysians suffered cramps one after the other—and so did their bid to top the event on home soil.

The Filipinos were no different Friday against the Thais, coached by a familiar American face in the region—Felton Sealy, a former Phoenix Suns draftee.

Against the Thais, though, the Filipinos were very much on their toes early and went on to book their second massacre, 92-76.

And all of a sudden, the competition was reduced to which team would join the RP-Nokia Youth five in the Iran continental championship—where the topnotcher would advance to the worlds.

Malaysia made sure—as what it looked forward to when the rules were changed in a manner that the top two, and not just the champion, would advance to the Fiba-Asia championship—that it would be representing the region with the Philippines.

Backed by a boisterous and flag-waving home crowd and already armed with the lesson of not pressing early to be in shape all four quarters, the Malaysians blasted away at the Thais, 85-68.

On the same Saturday night when the Filipinos spent the day off watching movies at the mall and savoring home-cooked adobo prepared by former broadcaster now Kuala Lumpur-based Teresa Guanzon, the Singaporeans, the youngest-looking among the five participants, sent the Indons reeling, 68-50.

With two playing days to go, the Philippines was alone on top unscathed and looked to sweeping the tournament; Malaysia was at second, secured of the trip to Iran; Singapore could go home with some pride with 1-2; and Indonesia would need to deeply evaluate its junior program with 0-2.

Exactly my point if Canadian competition is so intense then why do good canada players go to the US?

It's not about intensity. Canadian university athletes don't get full scholarships.They only get a maximum of $5,000. So, all talented Canadian players are scooped up by US universities. US coaches regularly visits Toronto to scout for talented players, and there are a lot of them!


Here's the truth, Canada is a ice hockey playing nation, the very best in the world. As a basketball nation ? they are good but not great.

Yes, Canada is not a basketball nation, but, unlike Vancouver and other Canadian cities, TORONTO is a BASKETBALL CITY, the only city outside the US with an NBA team!!! :p Coming soon is a Toronto NFL team!!

Also, Toronto is a city with a lot of Filipino basketball clubs/tournaments.
Here are just some of them:

Unfortunately, due to lack of height, majority of pinoy kids can only compete against non-pinoys from their early age up to around the age of 16 (midgets). After that age they stop growing taller that they can no longer compete against much taller, talented and very athletic black kids. Pinoys are left on the sidelines watching black kids showing off their dunking skills.

RP wins SEABA jr crown
from Manila Bulletin by kristel satumbaga

KUALA LUMPUR – The Nokia Philippine Youth team trounced Indonesia, 123-43, late Sunday night to wrap up the title in the Southeast Asia Basketball Association (SEABA) Championship for Junior Men crown with still one game left at the Malaysian Amateur Basketball Association gym here.


The Filipinos came out smoking and never let up to remain undefeated in three games in this five-nation, single round tournament.

The Filipinos try to formalize the championship late Monday when they meet Singapore for their last assignment.

Although it’s a remote possibility, a loss to the Singaporeans will still give the Philippines the crown.

The hosts carry a 2-1 record while Thailand has 2-2. Indonesia, made up of players from national juniors club champion Medan Sumatera Utanu Basketball Club, remained winless in three outings behind Singapore’s 1-2 slate.

The win also served as a sweet gift to the team’s benefactor, Jun Sy, who celebrated his 45th birthday Sunday.

It was a balanced performance for the Nationals with virtually anyone sent in to play scoring double figures. In fact, of 12 sent in, only four scored in single digits.

Jaypee Mendoza, an 18-year-old from Tarlac, led the Filipinos with 14 points from a perfect 7-of-7 field goal shooting while grabbing eight rebounds and making two steals.

"I think everybody contributed to this. We can’t just single out one player," RP Youth coach Franz Pumaren said. "It’s a collective effort because when you put somebody from the bench, they still contribute one way or another."

The Filipinos raced to a 10-0 start before slowly but surely increasing the pressure with shots from behind the arc.

By the end of the first period, the RP Youth had already nailed four booming treys from Joseph Tolentino, Ryan Garcia and Gabriel Banal.

The closest Indonesia could get was at 24-34 at the start of the second frame courtesy of its star player Rocky Chentra’s three-pointer. Chentra, however, was pulled out midway the period after dislocating his right shoulder from a bad fall.

The 17-year-old, 5-foot-8 shooting guard finished with 19 points in 20 minutes of action.

So confident was the RP squad that the players remained on the court during the halftime break as Pumaren abstained from the usual halftime huddle in the locker room with .

The Filipinos led, 65-26, at the turn.

"We still have high respect for the Indonesian team. They played with a big heart," Pumaren said.

"Consistency is our main thrust whether we play a strong or weak team in this tournament and in future competitions. We tried to play hard because there’s a tendency for us to relax and that should not be the case," he added.

The Filipinos converted 50 of their 103 attempts from the field for a 49 percent average. They put in 11 of their 33 triesd from downtown area. They also controlled the boards with 59 rebounds compared to Indonesia’s 33, and have 22 assists compared to their rivals’ four.

Indonesia’s 35 turnovers also contributed to their downfall.

Indonesian coach Agus Salim Lim praised the Filipinos’ talent and firepower.

"The Philippine team is very strong," Lim, whose team only trained for three weeks, said.
The scores:

NOKIA RP YOUTH 143 — Mendoza 14, Pascual 13, Banal 13, Torres 12, Garcia 11, Sangalang 11, Marata 11, Manguera 10, Terso 8, Tolentino 8, Golla 6, De Guzman 6.

INDONESIA 43 — Chentra 19, Gozali 11, Ang 5, Sofian 2, Teddy 2, Suwandy 2, Fahmi 2, Herbert 0, Tanadi 0, Utama 0, Wirhendy 0, Wijaya 0.

Quarters: 34-21, 65-26, 95-32, 123-43.



The Indonesian's just trained for 3 weeks, they didn't stand a chance.

Next stop U18 Asia-FIBA in Iran, way to go Team Philippines.

RP Youth crowned SEABA champs (From Philstar.com)

KUALA LUMPUR – The real challenge now beckons for the Nokia RP Youth team after expectedly dominating the regional championship here.

Powerhouse teams from all over Asia now await the Philippines after its triumphant return to the SEABA junior men championship, capping a four-game sweep with a 96-55 demolition of Singapore at the MABA gym here Monday.

The RP juniors topped the five-nation tourney in fiery fashion, clobbering the opposition by a whopping average margin of 42.2 points.

With their domination of the field, the RP juniors gained the lion’s share of individual honors during the awards rites. Norberto Torres was named Most Valuable Player, Mark Joel de Guzman Best Defensive Player and Franz Pumaren the Best Coach.

But as the RP squad savored the victory, the real test looms in four months when the Nationals face teams like China, South Korea, Iran and Qatar.

The RP juniors take a trip to Tehran, Iran in September in search of the crown the country has never won in almost three decades now.

It has all been a frustrating run for the Philippines in this biennial tourney for boys 18 years old and under since the Hector Calma-led 1981 RP team triumphed at home turf.

“It’s going to be hard but I don’t think it’s impossible,” said coach Franz Pumaren, hopeful they can pull off the feat in the Iran joust where the top two teams gain the right to represent the region in the 2009 World Youth Championship in New Zealand.

“In terms of the level of competition, I think we can compete. I just hope they’re (the opposition) not too big,” Pumaren said.

“We’re now going to the Asian level. Our goal is not to win just one game but to represent the country well and play above expectation,” said Tao Corp. president Jun Sy, the chief benefactor of the team.

Pumaren said the team is taking a rest in the next two to three weeks before going back to work most possibly with the addition of two to three new players in the pool.

“The boys are now in pretty good shape but we’ve seen in this tourney that we have players who can’t compete with taller rivals,” said Pumaren, now looking to beef up his team with one more big guy and one or two solid wingmen.

Torres had recommended a pal in Toronto, Canada. Pumaren said the player is a tremendous shooter but he’s more interested to play in the US NCAA Division I school.

The players under the Nokia RP Youth pool have all made full commitment to the program, agreeing to skip the coming varsity season which runs smack with the Asian championship.

“I’m proud of the boys because they’re sacrificing a lot for this. The team is starting to get together because they believe we’re going to do the program right. Remember they come from different places, from different backgrounds, but Franz has molded them into one team that trust each other,” said Sy.
