    Patriots Ardy Larong Receives 2-Game Suspension for Unsportsmanlike Behavior

    30 May 2012, Jakarta, Indonesia – The AirAsia ASEAN Basketball League today announced that a notification of suspension for Ardy Larong has been sent to the AirAsia Philippine Patriots following an incident during the Patriots’ firs game in their playoff series against the Indonesia Warriors last Sunday.

    Video evidence and official reports from the game has been carefully reviewed by the ABL and it was concluded that Larong’s attempted head butt on Warriors Stanley Pringle in the fourth quarter is a clear violation of the ABL Rules & Regulations clause on Unsportsmanlike Acts.

    This incident is also Larong’s third offense of the season, which has resulted in a stiffer penalty and as such he will be suspended for the Patriots’ next two games, beginning with this weekend’s matchup which is game two of the Patriots’ playoff series against the Warriors. On top of the ABL’s penalty, FIBA Asia will also be notified on the matter which may result in further action.

    Following a clause within the ABL Rules & Regulations, the AirAsia Philippine Patriots will be allowed to make an appeal regarding the fines above within 24 hours of the time the notification was sent.

    AirAsia ABL Announces Nominees for Season 3 Player Awards


    Awards Nominees

    The AirAsia ASEAN Basketball League has just announced the nominees for this season’s MVP awards, the winners of which will be announced in the first week of June after which the awards will be presented during the ABL’s Championship Dinner scheduled for July 2012.

    Over the past seasons, Most Valuable Player awards have been given out in the categories of regular season import, regular season local player and best player during the playoffs/finals. This season however, two new categories have been added for the Regular Season Defensive Player of the year and the Regular Season Coach of the Year.

    The MVP nominees are selected based on their performance throughout the regular season by their stats and total efficiency ratings. Their overall conduct in their games is also put into consideration. Candidates are also required to have participated in at least 16 games within the regular season.

    Best Defensive Player of the Year nominees are, of course, determined by their individual average rebounds, blocks, steals and how many points on average are scored against them.

    The winners will be determined via peer voting where each team’s Head Coach will be given one vote for each category. The votes will then be tallied and the nominee with the most votes will receive the award.

    This year’s award nominees are:-

    Regular Season Import player MVP

    - Anthony Johnson – AirAsia Philippine Patriots

    - Tiras Wade – Westports Malaysia Dragons

    - Jonathan Jones – Saigon Heat

    Regular Season Local player MVP

    - Leonez Avenido – San Miguel Beermen

    - Mario Wuysang – Indonesia Warriors

    - Al Vergara – AirAsia Philippine Patriots

    Regular Season Defensive Player of the Year:

    - Steven Thomas – Indonesia Warriors

    - Nakiea Miller – AirAsia Philippine Patriots

    - Louis Graham – Jobstreet.com Singapore Slingers

    Last year’s winners include this year’s nominee for the Regular Season Defensive Player of the Year Nakiea Miller, who won the Regular Season’s Best Import award for his role with the Dragons as well as Mario Wuysang, last year’s winner who is once again nominated for Regular Season Local Player MVP. The Slammers’ Attaporn Leitmalaiporn, who is currently still the only player in the ABL who has two awards under his belt (ABL League MVP in Season 1 and ABL Playoffs MVP in Season 2), misses out in this season’s nominations.

    Malaysia Dragons force Beermen to deciding Game Three in ABL semis series
    Art Requiron, InterAKTV · Saturday, June 2, 2012 · 6:38 pm

    The Westports Malaysia Dragons extended their semifinal series to a deciding Game 3 when they defeated the San Miguel Beermen, 100-77, Saturday in the ASEAN Basketball League at the MABA Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.

    The Beermen fell after the Dragons closed the game with a 26-7 blast to force a rubber match on June 9 at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

    Filipino Patrick Cabahug helped Tiras Wade and Brian Williams on the offensive end to boost the Dragons’ fourth quarter assault to tie the series. Cahabug had 17 points on three-of-six shooting and his buzzer beating trey in the third quarter sparked the Dragons as they entered the fourth with a 72-66 lead.

    Wade and Williams scored 34 and 26 points respectively and dominated the fourth as they lead the charge in that pivotal run.

    Duke Crews led the Beermen in scoring with 15 points while Chris Banchero added 13.

    Meanwhile, the AirAsia Philippine Patriots attempt to extend their own semifinal affair with the Indonesia Warriors when they clash Sunday at the Mahaka Square in Jakarta.

    The Patriots are missing a key piece to their team with Ardy Larong being slapped with a two-game suspension by the league.

    Larong was suspended after he was caught headbutting Indonesia Warriors’ Stanley Pringle in the fourth quarter of Game 1 during a video review of the match.

    With their backs against the wall, Patriots coach Glenn Capacio hopes to regain homecourt advantage in Game 2.

    “For us to get back in the series, we just have to be mentally and physically tough especially that we’ll be playing in Jakarta,” Capacio said.

    Well, I think the Beermen would pull through. The Pats, on the other hand, feels iffy.

    Are you telling us that we will 'on purpose' be absent in the Asian stage?
    Did Noli Eala agree on this? (well he should! his team is not that strong and will be destroyed by an average of 25pts. Except for the brand pubicity, there is no other good thing for his team!).
    I feel that we should really boycot the champions cup. We will not see a PBA team there anyway. And it doesn't give FIBA points anyway!
    And it will not be beneficial for us anymore(no more training ground for our NT!) since it only acknowledges FIBA sanctioned teams like ABL teams.

    A)
    First, i would like for teh Phil. Pats to enter the finals so that our national team(chot's team) would replace them in the champions cup.
    Then SMB entering the finals too so that we'll see Stanley Pringle and Chris Banchero teaming up for San Miguel against the asian clubs. And a possible clash with our national team. Astig diba?!
    B) if A happens, there will be no Banchero vs Pringle in the ABL finals.
    C) Phil. Pats will be destroyed by IW. IW will enter the finals. SMB still has chance. IF its gonna be IW vs SMB in the finals, i would not like to see SMB,as philippines' representative in the FIBA Asia Champioins cup. They got the name of SMB with them. a FORMER PBA club team name which has the most championship ever won. Them being blasted in the asian stage would be a repeat of 2004 destruction. It will be a big blow on the name of our country. Face it, they are not the same club in the PBA(which is Petron now) but they carry the name and not all people knows that. IW wont stand a chance in Champions cup. They will lose their filipino imports including pringle.
    D) if sir nardy's plan happens, then that's good. But what will be the alternative for our national team then? stint in europe? americas?

    Rival the Champions cup with a FIBA-APAC(asia-pacific) champions cup?! To be called MVP champions cup?!
    OR play against NBA teams before the season starts(no change in schedule since Champions cup is also in october)?

    What's the grand plan sir nardy? any hint?

    Slowly but surely.. the fact that mediocre Philippine players representing Philippines in this league would not be enough

    hey guys dont make any conspiracy theories, all I am saying I have a feeling both Indonesia and Malaysia would pull an upset and set-up an ABL Championship series that has no Philippine team.

    Based on the games I saw, our teams even though are much better the players seem to be not that commited or motivated. I could not see the fire, a lot of times they are lazy to play defense and while on court would just let the imports do all the work. Anyway thats just my opinion. But guys do not make any intrigues about the matter. As stated before SEABA ruled that teams representing the top 2 countries in the ABL would represent the Southeast Asia subzone in the FIBA ASIA Champions Cup, so if Malaysia and Indonesia is to play in the FINALS, that means both the teams of the Philippines is not among the Top 2 teams. It is as simple as that.

    Dragons Force Game 3 After 100-77 Win Over Beermen

    The Dragons’ sixth man came out in full force this afternoon and watched as their team put in an impressive performance to take Game 2 in the playoff series between the Westports Malaysia Dragons and the San Miguel Beermen 100 to 77 at MABA Stadium in Malaysia.

    The Dragons’ Tiras Wade was the game’s leading scorer and recorded 34 points in this game. Brian Williams grabbed another double double with 26 points and 15 rebounds. Patrick Cabahug capped off the Dragons’ top three scorers with 17 points.

    The Beermen’s Duke Crews finished with 15 points for his team followed by Chris Banchero who put in 13. After a great performance in game 1, Beermen’s big man Nick Fazekas only finished with 12 points and 7 rebounds.

    The Dragons’ Tiras Wade was on fire at the start of the game and finished with 13 out of the Dragons total of 26 for the first quarter. Wade’s jumpshot capped off an early 10-1 run by the Dragons to build an early 17-5 lead. The Dragons continued their great shooting form, completing 61% from the field and earned a convincing 26-19 lead going into the second period.

    The Beermen picked up their defense in the third quarter. Two turnovers by Dragons’ Brian Williams led to two Duke Crews dunks that trimmed the Dragons’ lead to 44-38 with 22 seconds left. Banchero then made a three-point off the glass at the buzzer to cut the Dragons lead to 45-42 at halftime.

    The Beermen opened the second half with a win in mind as they took the lead on Roger Yap’s two free throws. Banchero then puts in a jumpe to give them a 50-46 lead with 8:30 left in the 3rd quarter.

    The Dragons then regrouped however and Williams put in a basket at 3:49 to put his team back on top at 58-57. Patrick Cabahug made a three-point shot to beat the buzzer at the end of third quarter to give the Dragons momentum going into the final quarter and 72-66 lead.

    Wade and Williams took over in the fourth quarter to make sure there will be a game 3 next Saturday. Wade scored eight straight points and a free throw by Williams capped off a 13-0 run by the Dragons which help them to have 87-70 lead with 3:53 left in the game. Then Wade secured the Dragon’s with a double pump two handed dunk to give them a 95-73 lead with 1:05 left and his dunk got the home crowd off their feet.

    The Dragons and the Beermen will meet again next Saturday the 9th of June in the Philippines to play the decider on who will make it into the championship game as the Dragons win this afternoon puts this playoff series at 1-1.

    ABL: Warriors complete clean sweep to enter Finals


    JAKARTA, Indonesia (ABL Season 3): Indonesia Warriors advanced to the Finals of the ABL for the second time in three years beating AirAsia Philippine Patriots 72-51 on Sunday to complete a 2-0 sweep of the semifinals.

    The Warriors, who last Sunday won Game 1 of the series 73-64, had finished runners-up to the Patriots in Season 1, but failed to make the play-offs last season.

    Steve Thomas (pic above) led all scorers steering Warriors’ win with 19 points and 15 rebounds.

    Evan Brock had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors.

    Nakiea Miller was the Patriots’ scoring leader with 12 points, followed by Anthony Johnson’s 11.

    The Patriots will miss the ABL final for the first time since the league started.

    The Patriots picked the wrong time to go cold from the field.

    The Warriors now await the winners of the other semifinal series between San Miguel Beermen and Westports Malaysia Dragons, which has stretched into Game 3. San Miguel Beermen won last Saturday to take the lead by winning Game 1, but the Dragons bounced back a week later winning Game 2 to force the decider.

    Warriors Advance to Finals Following 72-51 Win Over Patriots

    After finishing fifth last season the Indonesia Warriors advanced to the AirAsia ASEAN Basketball Season 3 Finals after they defeated the AirAsia Philippine Patriots 72-51 earlier this afternoon. This will be Indonesia’s second trip to the final after finishing as runner-ups in the first season.

    Steve Thomas was the game’s leading scorer with 19 points and 15 rebounds followed closely by Evan Brock’s 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors. Nakiea Miller was the Patriots’ score leader with 12 pts, followed by Anthony Johnson’s 11 for the Patriots who will miss the ABL final for the first time since the league started.

    The Patriots picked the wrong time to go cold from the field. The Patriots scoring woes continued in this game as although they were generous with the attempts, the Patriots were simply unable to find the basket and converted just 9 out of 36 field goal attempts and only one out of 17 three point attempts in the first half. The Patriots were scoreless for nearly five minutes in the second quarter before Anthony Johnson put one in at the 5:10 minute mark. They went on to score only six points in the entire second period.

    The Warriors were a little bit better, shooting at 38% from the field, which earned them the 13 point lead going into the halftime break. The Pringle-Brock combo was lethal in the first half and caused the Patriots all sorts of problems then drove it home with a stunning alley oop dunk from Pringle to Brock which got the crowd up on their feet late in the second quarter. Pringle then put in the last basket of the first half to send the Warriors into the halftime break with a 32-19 lead.

    It was a more exciting second half which the Patriots entered on a 6 point run that quickly trimmed the Warriors lead down to just 7 points only to have Allan Salangsang answer with a 3 to give his team back a double digit lead. The Patriots continued to determinedly chase the lead but the Warriors were not about to let their home crowd down and entered the fourth quarter with a comfortable 49 to 36 lead.

    The Warriors continued to dominate in the fourth quarter and the Patriots weren’t able to get closer than 10 points. To make matters worse, Anthony Johnson limped off with 1:49 left on the clock as their other import Miller was already sitting on 4 personal fouls. It was all about the Warriors as the clock wound down and the Warriors advanced to the AirAsia ABL Season 3 Finals with the 72-51 win and a 2-0 record in their playoff series. Now the Warriors will be watching Game 3 of the San Miguel Beermen and Westports Malaysia Dragons series closely next Saturday the 9th of June to see who they will face in the finals.

    Warriors: Steve Thomas – 19pts, Evan Brock – 16pts, Mario Wuysang – 8pts, Stanley Pringle – 8pts, Rony Gunawan – 7pts, Allan Salangsang – 6pts, Jerick Canada – 3pts, Amin Prihantono – 3pts, Arki Wisnu – 2pts.

    To be fair with the patriots they did not choke... in the regular season IW destroyed them also at home and with the talent they have although deeper by 2 or 3 menthey have no player to match up with Steve Thomas and the talent level of IW top 4 guys(Steve, Brock, Wuysang and Pringle)..

    Hopefully Junmar Fajardo can handle the additional responsibility, you cannot rely on Nick fazekas of all people to achor your defense thats the dilemma they need to face for opting another scorer of an import
    To becomes Asia's Best, we need to compete against the World's Best..

    for San Miguel to win the local players must have their mind on the game and are willing to do the dirty job. They should play as a team and not let Fazekas, Crews, Banchero and Avenido do everything .... its a common attitude problem with some Pinoy players have when there are other players receiving higher compensation they would not play at the same level for the reason that since those other players are paid better they should do more of the work. Thats why in the PBA they just make the imports do everything which is not the way in the Euroleague, Australia's NBL or at the South American leagues.
