    ryan buenafe is impressive because he's big and can dribble the ball very well. if he can improve his quickness and speed, he can be a good number 2 or 3 in US NCAA Div1. for now, he needs a good training to toughen his upper body and muscles because he looks like having so much fats in his system.

    Zobel Secures Crown In OT


    by JP Abcede

    De La Salle Zobel achieved something many believed they could not do, defeating Ateneo High School in overtime, 98-92, to sweep the finals and grasp the UAAP juniors basketball trophy on September 29 at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.


    Jed Manguera tied the count, 82-all, with a three-point basket, finding himself free at left quarter-court, with just exactly two seconds left, the pass coming from Marco Fortuna. The Junior Archers then stringed a 7-0 run, finished by a Joshua Webb putback of his own miss plus a foul from Juami Tiongson to boot, 93-86, 1:58.


    “We were down and out,” explained DLSZ coach Boris Aldeguer. “The boys refused to give up.”


    The diminutive Fortuna played huge with 23 points, shooting 5/9 from beyond the three-point line, six rebounds, and five assists. Webb, who already had a double-double by halftime, concluded his UAAP juniors ball career shooting 50% at the field and 9/11 at the line for 21 markers, 21 boards, two steals, and two blocks.


    “He stuck with us for four years,” Aldeguer said of his graduating forward. “Three years, two championships. He is the MVP, what can I say?”


    “It is complete bliss,” Webb pictured out his feeling. “It was such a close game. It came down the wire, we almost lost this one.”


    Gwayne Capacio, son of Far Eastern University men’s basketball coach Glenn Capacio, concocted 15 points and eight rebounds. Both Manguera and Nico Elorde produced 12, while Masshi Okubo concluded with 11 markers.


    “This game was more of vindication,” Aldeguer cited three things, which were: the Junior Archers not being able to defend the title due to last year’s suspension, losing twice against the Eaglets in the eliminations, and the thought that they could not win another crown.


    De La Salle have nine graduating players, among them are Manguera, Fortuna, Okubo, the heralded Webb, Archi Go, and the bulky Colin Buckley.


    “(DLSU) coach Franz (Pumaren) is very interested with the seniors,” Aldeguer mentioned. “I am glad because this is their dream, to play in college.”


    “If I can crack into the lineup,” Webb crossed his fingers of a chance to be part of the Green Archers. “It is already a competitive lineup.”


    Tiongson fouled out with 24 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and eight turnovers on 33 minutes. First year Kiefer Ravena exploded for 22 with five boards, two steals, and two blocks, while Ael Banal made 17.


    Unlike in their previous encounters, Zobel led for most of the match, the highest after two Fortuna threes sandwiched an Okubo jumper at the corner to begin the second half, 44-37. The Eaglets also had a seven-point lead early in the second quarter.


    The shooters of Ateneo fought back and turned it into a six-point contest, 79-73, with Ravena scoring an acrobatic layup in transition against Manguera, 2:11 in the fourth period. DLSZ returned fire with five straight, Capacio stealing the ball from Banal, who fumbled the inbounds pass, then forwarding it to Go for a layup, time down to :24.7.


    Three Tiongson free tries and a Capacio charity set up the final play as Webb grabbed the rebound off Tiongson’s missed freethrow, brought down the ball to Fortuna, who then drove left then kicked it out to Manguera at the wings.


    “Siguro swerte lang talaga. Hinintay ko lang dumating ang shots,” Manguera recounted. “Pick and roll talaga ang play, pero nalibre ako.”

    Kieffer Ravena
    - Only a High School freshman as of 2007, but already a major force in his school varsity team
    - Doesn't have his father's height or heft, yet, but already a much better ballhandler
    - Good outside shot, great one on one moves facing the basket
    - If he grows to be his father's size while retaining his current skills & quickness, could be a major, major force in Philippine basketball


    Matthew Capacio
    - Good height (reportedly 6'4"), good ballhandling & one on one skills
    - Lacks athleticism, though, not as great as leaper as Joshua Webb


    Ael Banal
    - Good outside shot
    - Looks a bit young, & small also in terms of height

    Like father, like son




    By: Gerry Ramos
    People's Journal

    IGEE KING. Both the given name and surname are familiar.

    The 15-year-old boy standing at 6-foot-1 happens to be the son of former cage great Abe King, whom he named after his former team manager at Great Taste and Presto, Ignacio ‘Iggy’ Gotao.

    “Bata pa, pero he’s improving,” said King, the former Toyota Corolla resident power forward who flew to town Saturday night from Washington D.C. and made a special personal appearance in the PSA Forum yesterday at the Shakey’s United Nations Avenue branch.

    The young King is currently playing for the Gig Harbor High School in Seattle, and was part of the 8th grade team that recently won the Hoopin’ for Life basketball tournament in the US.

    Abe, now 50 but whose presence remains noticeable with his height and stocky build, also dreams to see his son play in college �" and hopefully pro ball �" in the Philippines, although he stressed studies should remain his priority.

    After playing for San Beda during his college years, King turned pro and suited up for Toyota, Great Taste and Purefoods, rising to become one of the best power forwards in the history of the PBA.

    Not to demean the kind of talent in the league today, but King believes he can hold a candle to pro players of today if he’s at the prime of his career.

    In between laughs, he said, “magiging mayabang ako nito. Pero kung inabot ko ang basketball ngayon na ganyan kalinis, palagay ko makakalamang ako ng maraming beses.”

    “Tingnan ninyo nga ang mukha ko ngayon, mukhang boksingero na,” he said, pointing to the cuts and bruises in his face that had been the result of the long, tedious 18 years he spent in the PBA from 1977.

    A one-time Mythical team member known for his rebounding and defensive prowess, King once scored 60 points for the Tamaraws in 1979.

    King retired in 1995 after winning a championship with Purefoods, an experience which he considers as very, very painful. “Mahal ko kasi ang PBA,” he said

    Paras Son Shines in Batang PBA

    Updated May 09, 2009 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines – Kobe Paras accounted for all but seven of his team’s points in the first quarter as Batang Alaska-Quezon City pounced on Batang Coca-Cola-San Pedro, 81-24, on Thursday and moved within a win of sweeping its group elimination in the Coca-Cola Batang PBA Summer League.

    Kobe, son of former PBA star and comedian Benjie Paras, scored 15 of his 17 points in the opening period, propelling the Batang Aces to a 22-6 lead that was never threatened the rest of the way.


    Martin Mendoza took scoring honors with 20 points and Kenneth Guevarra had nine for the Batang Aces, who streaked to their third straight win in Group B at the Olivarez College Gym in Parañaque.

    Batang Coca-Cola-San Pedro fell to 2-2.

    Batang Sta. Lucia-Cainta pulled through with a 30-28 decision over Batang Barangay Ginebra-Pasay, also on Thursday to improve to 1-1 in Group A.

    Randolf Perez scored 10 points and Dominic de Lara added nine for the Batang Realtors. Joseph Navarro had 11 points for Pasay which picked up its second loss in a row.

    On Wednesday, Batang Barako Bull-Marikina clobbered Batang San Miguel Beer-Taytay, 57-40, to go 1-1 in Group B in a tie with the Batang Beermen.

    Courtesy of "Joescoundrel", from the Gameface forums:

    "Keifer Ravena, Cedric Labingisa and Jeron Teng turned it up in the closing minutes as the RP 16-and under team survived a late game surge by Lasalle Zobel to prevail 77 - 72.

    Zobel, featuring a taller lineup than the Nationals, were keeping themselves ahead for most of the first half, the last time at 29-23 late in the second period behind veterans Luigi Dela Paz, Gwayne Capacio and 6'7" newcomer Arnold Van Opstal.

    Ravena and Teng then conspired with Kevin Ferrer, Paolo Romero and Von Pessumal in a 12-0 run to end the first half, as the Nationals seized a 41-33 lead going into the lemon time break.

    In the third period it was practically an all-RP show as the lead went as high as 59-43 late in the quarter. Romero used superior pivots in the lane to score against the taller Zobel frontline. Ravena cut up the Zobel defense with his dribble-penetration and patented double-clutch layups. Teng waxed hot from trey range. And the RP Boys tightened up with their own full court press and halfcourt trap on the defensive end to generate turnovers and frustrate the Zobel guards.

    Just when the Nationals looked headed for an easy cruise to victory, Capacio took charge himself and went on a fourth period tear, scoring eight straight points to cut down the lead to 67-63 with still four minutes and change to go.

    Ravena however would not let the RP Boys falter as he made four straight freethrows and once again scrambled the Zobel offense with his quick darting hands, disrupting the passing lanes and taking the ball away handily from Nico Elorde and Dela Paz.

    Capacio responded with another cluster of four points on strong drives along the baseline, and the Ravena-Capacio duel was coming to a climax. Zobel was now within 75-72.

    In the end though it would be the freethrows of Teng that sealed the win as Zobel ran out of timeouts to set up plays in their last two possessions.

    Capacio led all scorers with 21 points to go with 14 rebounds and two blocks. Dela Paz added 16 on 3-4 shooting from trey range.

    Ravena led the Nationals with 15 points and five steals, Teng added 13 with three treys, while Romero had 10 points and nine rebounds.


    Zobel is known as a speed team with great perimeter shooting, but in this game the RP Boys beat them at their own game. "We really lack size, so we make up for it with speed on transition and outside shooting," explained RP head coach Eric Altamirano.

    Their participation in this tournament is meant as a tuneup for the coming months. "We wanted to get a taste of top-level competition, that is why we joined the NSL," said Altamirano. "We have the FIBA-Asia Youth tournament in November this year, and we might go to China in June. I'm trying to get as much training as possible now because the boys go back to their school teams in June and July," he added.

    Capacio’s Son Wants To Excel On Defense

    By Marjorie Gorospe
    INQUIRER.net
    First Posted 14:17:00 05/13/2009

    Filed Under: Basketball

    MANILA, Philippines – How does it feel to be following the footsteps of your father, regarded as one of the greatest defensive players to have ever played in the PBA?

    Gwayne Capacio shares that it feels like any father-and-son relationship. Like any normal kid, he strives to make his father proud.

    The younger Capacio, an incoming senior student, plays forward for the De La Salle-Zobel Baby Archers. According to him, his father’s presence during his games inspires him to play better.

    “He has his expectations but I’m just inspired whenever he’s around,” he said.

    His father Glenn, a perennial member of the PBA All-Defensive Team during his heyday with Purefoods and now head coach of the Far Eastern University varsity team, finds a way to look after Gwayne’s growth in basketball despite his busy schedule

    Gwayne’s team is currently playing in the ongoing Fil-Chinese Basketball League (FCBL) Freego Jeans Cup.

    “We play everyday and he gives me tips on how to do this and that, but I must admit that I sometimes fail to apply what he taught me in some situations,” Gwayne said in an interview with INQUIRER.net, referring to his dad.

    He believes his strength as a player isn’t really on defense although he said: “I know where I am good at but I hope to be better on defense.”

    Capacio, who stands 6’2”, said he plans on taking up a business course in college although he did not give an absolute answer whether he would want to continue playing for La Salle.

    “We will come to that,” he said. “I believe that in every game, we should always give our best shot and never give up.”

    I think this is the "Lastimosa" who is now playing for CSB, and who topscored for that team in their latest game at the Fil-Oil Cup.
