Injured Williams, Thoss to sit out SEABA


MANILA, Philippines – Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) commissioner Sonny Barrios announced the “Final 12" which will participate in next month’s Southeast Asia Basketball Association (SEABA) Championships in Medan, Indonesia.

“The coaching staff headed by coach Yeng (Guiao) decided to choose the players based only on one criteria," said Barrios. “Supposedly the competition is light in SEABA so they based the selection on health."

The healthiest 12 among the present 14 members of the Powerade-Team Pilipinas will be playing in the six-nation meet which is a FIBA-Asia qualifier.

“The deadline for submission of line-up is on May 22 (Friday). We sent it out (Wednesday) afternoon to SBP (Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas) and they will send it to SEABA since the PBA has no legal personality to submit it directly to SEABA," said Barrios.

After Kelly Williams, Sonny Thoss of Alaska was the other player who was cut from the team.

“Coach Yeng preferred Sonny Thoss to rest his knee because he’s not needed to win the SEABA. He’s more needed in the coming Jones Cup and in China," said Barrios referring to the FIBA-Asia qualifying which will be held this August in Guangzhou.

“Both took the news well for not being included due to health reasons. They are both appreciative for informing them personally about their non-inclusion," added Barrios who personally talked to Williams and Thoss.

Meanwhile, Japeth Aguilar, the 6-foot-9 Fil-Am who played for Smart-Gilas Pilipinas will not be coming at the end of this month to join the team.

“He (Aguilar) asked permission if after the SEABA if he can comeback to the States to join the NBA development training camp and coach Yeng told me to let him stay there," said Barrios.

Instead, Aguilar will be coming at the end of next month or the last week of June.

Guiao’s 12-member Powerade Team Pilipinas leaves for Indonesia on June 4. – GMANews.TV

Team Pilipinas hopes to win big in SEABA


MANILA, Philippines – Powerade Team Pilipinas hopes to play hard and win big in next month’s Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) men’s championship in Medan, Indonesia.

The six-nation SEABA tournament is a qualifier for the FIBA-Asia Championship, which will be held in Tianjin, China in August. The FIBA-Asia Championship is a qualifying event for the FIBA World Championship and the Olympic basketball tournament.

PBA commissioner Sonny Barrios said Filipinos have high expectations with the team. “The team wants to play hard in SEABA. The expectation of the country is that they win. We want them to win by 50 (points)."

Barrios said Team Pilipinas coach Yeng Guiao won’t treat the five other teams lightly in the June 6 to 10 tournament. “We will not leave anything to chance will not let them have a walk in the park. We have to win by as much margin as we can."

Barrios added that the team will be back on June 11 and the PBA resumes Fiesta Cup’s season on June 14. The PBA takes a 10-day break from June 4 to 13.

Reigning PBA most valuable player Kelly Williams and Sonny Thoss will join the trip but will not play due to various injuries.

Guiao will still have practice sessions with the team from June 1 to 3 before they leave for Medan on June 4. The tournament opens on June 6. – GMANews.TV

It's great that Philippines sends a PBA national team because though they will be thrashing everyone in their path their quality of play will eventually trickle down to the opposition and benefit them in the long term.

This is why the basketball powerhouses of international basketball have been able to compete with Team USA.

As much as i would love to send another team for this lowly tourney, for instance Smart Gilas or a PBL team, this PBA NT badly needs some avenue for them to coagulate and warm up before FIBA. So far, they've had a few games: against 3rd-tier Australians and a freaking PBA "all-star" team *roll eyes*. I guess joining this tourney should somehow help them a little bit.

Anyways, this whole short-term preparation in general sucks, as we all know. [If you look at the 2007 NT, they're way ahead of this current NT in terms of preparation but it was basically STILL considered cramming and not enough after all.] In spite of that, let's just make the most of this short period to get them prepared and warmed up, to some degree. Even this lowly qualifying tourney can help.

There are no imports in the RP team. And i think they are not looking for an import. The final roster will be announced weeks before the Fiba wars start.

Silent preparation. Like playing somwhere in Europe or US where no one can scout us or stuff? If it means something like that, then it's definitely the best option... no debate about that.

But the thing is, we can't be too picky at this point. We're actually cramming to get as many REAL intn'l games as possible for them. Count how many games they've had on their resume. Less than 5 eh? Never mind they're games with those 2 teams that didn't exhibit the international brand of play. This PBA NT should grab every chance offered 'cause as far as they go, they aren't solid AS A TEAM yet, not even by 50%. So no reason to be maarte. Not to mention they can't even arrange any games with our ideal opponents, in other words, this "silent preparation" you're prolly talking about.

I'd rather other teams write notes about us at SEABA than our team just start to feel up the intn'l game in Jones Cup. Both sounds wrong but the latter for me is worse.

Draw crucial factor in RP 5 drive

SBP executive director Noli Eala said yesterday the draw for the 25th FIBA-Asia Championships in Tianjin, China, will be held on June 17 and hoped the country's luck will change after landing in two straight "Groups of Death" in recent tournaments.

The Philippines will try to book one of two tickets reserved for Southeast Asia in the SEABA qualifiers in Medan, Indonesia, on June 6-10. If coach Yeng Guiao's Powerade team winds up first or second, it will advance to play in the FIBA-Asia joust on Aug. 6-16 with the top three finishers gaining slots in the World Championships in Turkey next year.

The venue for the draw is still undecided but it may be held in Komaki, Japan, where the East Asian qualifiers are scheduled on June 10-14. Expected to play in the tournament are China, South Korea, Chinese-Taipei, Mongolia, Hong Kong and host Japan.

In Tokushima two years ago, the Philippines was in the so-called "Group of Death" with eventual champion Iran, defending titlist China and Jordan. The national team beat China, 79-74, but lost to Iran, 75-69, and Jordan, 84-76, and eventually placed ninth despite winning its last four games over Syria, 107-100, in overtime, India, 104-89, Kuwait, 89-58, and China in a rematch, 78-76.

In Jakarta a few weeks ago, the Philippines was bracketed with Iran, Lebanon, Korea and Kuwait. A defeat to Qatar in the quarterfinals eliminated the Philippines from advancing to the semis.

"It was tough playing Iran and Lebanon at the start," said Eala. "Iran later won the title and Lebanon beat Qatar for third place. Against Qatar, we were down by 10 with 5 1/2 minutes left, down by three with two minutes to go and down by one with about 1 1/2 minutes remaining. We had a chance to take the lead but we lost possession on a bad pass. Qatar missed two shots but they kept getting the offensive rebound until finally, they hit a three-pointer. The lead shot up to four and we took a bad panic shot in return. That did it for us. Still, we learned a lot in the tournament. We definitely got better. I think we're on the right track. We finished second in our group and made it to the quarterfinals. If we made it to the semis, we would've been very, very happy and if we made it to the finals, it would've been a bonus."

Eala, who leaves for Tokyo tomorrow for the Smart Gilas' four-game exhibition series with the Japanese national team, will meet PBA commissioner Sonny Barrios and special assistant to the commissioner Willie Marcial to discuss the SEABA tournament after he returns this Sunday.

"We have video, scouting reports and player profiles for our Powerade Philippine team coaching staff," said Eala in a text to Barrios yesterday. "Hopefully, it will help for FIBA-Asia in August. Let's meet either June 1 or 2 so we can include Japan in our discussions. I know you'll demolish SEABA. I will be in Medan for one or two days just to make sure all is OK with FIBA and our team."

The PBA Board of Governors plans a special meeting in Medan during the SEABA Championships as the league throws its full support behind the national team's drive for Tianjin.

So far, eight countries have qualified for the 16-nation FIBA-Asia Championships -- host China for East Asia, Kuwait and Qatar for the Gulf, Kazakhstan and India for Middle Asia and Jordan, Iran and Lebanon for West Asia. Still up for grabs are two slots in East Asia, two slots in the Gulf, two slots in Middle Asia and two slots in Southeast Asia.

The three countries vying for two available slots in East Asia are Japan, Chinese-Taipei and South Korea. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are tipped to make it in the Gulf while Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Kyrgyzstan will battle for two slots in Middle Asia. The Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Laos will play for two slots in Southeast Asia.

Coach Rajko Toroman's Smart Gilas squad will see action as a guest team in the next PBA Philippine Cup but the results will not be counted in the standings.

"We're following what the PBA did in the '80s when the national team, with coach Derick Pumaren, was first brought in to play no-bearing games but in the next conference, with coach Ron Jacobs, the national team's results were counted and they even won the championship in 1985," said Marcial.

The Powerade squad will play in the Jones Cup this July after the SEABA Championships and before the FIBA-Asia tournament. Joaquin Henson - The Philippine Star

that's short of saying the powerade roster sucks. i based my roster in the current 15 man roster of PBA NT with the exclusion of ranidel. jj helterbrand, willie miller, these guys arent natural pgs either that's why i put them in reserve. but that's just my humble opinion, sir.

Garuda Pulls Double Duty In League, Regional Event

In addition to fighting for its first Indonesian Basketball League title, Garuda Flexi Bandung will represent Indonesia at the Southeast Asian Basketball Association (Seaba) Championship in Medan, North Sumatra, from June 6-10.

Indonesian Basketball Association (Perbasi) official Azwar Zulkarnaen said Garuda was chosen because of its 2008 IBL Tournament championship.

“This should be a national team event, but we only have a very short time to prepare the team,” Azwar said on Monday. “We have to select the team which is ready to play in the event. Satria Muda just played in the FIBA Asia Champions Cup, so after a meeting, we picked Garuda.”

He said Perbasi had asked Seaba to postpone the event because the association was not ready to organize the championship, but Seaba instead spoke directly to Perbasi North Sumatra, which said it could organize the tournament on its own.

Garuda is slated to play as Indonesia in the championship and will face three Southeast Asian teams — Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.

While Garuda has a number of national players on its roster, including Denny Sumargo, Mario Wuysang and Kelly Purwanto, the club will bolster its chances with players from fellow IBL teams.

Garuda manager Simon Pasaribu said his team would borrow players from XL Aspac Jakarta and Pelita Jaya Esia for the Seaba tournament.

“M. Isman Thoyib of Aspac and Andi Poedjakesuma will join us for the event, and their clubs have given permission,” Simon said. “We dropped our plan to borrow two Satria Muda Britama players.”

Garuda initially asked archrival Satria Muda to loan out Ronny Gunawan and Christian Ronaldo Sitepu. Ronny was too exhausted after playing for his club in the FIBA Asia Champions Cup, Simon said, and Christian had to focus on his college studies.

The Seaba Championship will take place between the IBL’s fifth series, May 28-June 2 in Surabaya, and the sixth series, June 12-16 in Bandung.

Well, Indonesia is not like Philipina. In Philipina, you can have 2 national team (smart gilas & powerade team) which have the same high quality, speed & experience. So, Philipina can easy to adjust, which tournament for smart gilas, and which tournament for powerade.

In Indonesia, we have limited players for international competition. If you see, every international tournament we almost send the same players for national team. And i think some of the players are very very tired now, since they must join many tournaments from january 2009.

At least let them take a rest for a month ...

Actually powerade only played 5 games since they were formed last year. The games werent convincing enough Powerade is for 2009 Fiba asia and Smart is for 2011 fiba asia.

Hamstring injury sidelines Helterbrand in next week’s SEABA
05/26/2009 | 08:39 PM

MANILA, Philippines – Add Jayjay Helterbrand’s name in Powerade Team Pilipinas’ disabled lists.

Helterbrand will be joining Powerade Team Pilipinas teammates Sonny Thoss and Kelly Williams at the sidelines and become cheerleaders for the PBA-backed national squad in next week’s Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) men’s championship in Medan, Indonesia.

The high-scoring Ginebra guard suffered a pulled hamstring he endured in the Gin Kings’ playoff match against Rain or Shine Sunday for the second outright semifinals berth of the Motolite-PBA Fiesta Cup.

The injury expects to sideline Helterbrand for 10 days as doctors advised him to rest his hamstring.

Thoss (knee) and Williams (blood disorder) are the other players in the reserve list of the Powerade Team Pilipinas.

Team Pilipinas coach Yeng Guiao shrugged off Helterbrand’s situation saying that the incident is just “a minor injury".

“We just learned about it (Monday) shortly after JayJay have undergone an MRI test. It’s bad news for us, although Willie (Miller) and Ryan (Reyes) are still there to take care of our backcourt," said Guiao during the weekly PSA Forum at Shakey’s U.N. Avenue.

Helterbrand was included in Guiao’s final 12-man Team Pilipinas roster suiting up for the PBA-backed RP squad for the June 6 to 10 SEABA that serves as the qualifying tournament for the FIBA-Asia men’s championship in Taijian, China in August.

Guiao said the coaching staff could have inserted Thoss in the lineup but as per SEABA rule, the final line-up can no longer be altered once it had been submitted. “We would have wanted to insert Sonny in the lineup when we learned about JayJay’s injury, pero kung ano raw ‘yung na-submit, basically, that’s it."

Despite getting hurt, Guiao said the 6-foot-1 Helterbrand, Mark Caguioa’s partner in Ginebra’s dreaded backcourt tandem, will still travel with the team in Indonesia. The nationals leave for Medan on June 4. “We’ll take him (Helterbrand) to Indonesia and see the situation on a day-to-day basis."

Although highly-favored to top the competition, the RP coach said he’s not taking lightly a tournament long been dominated by the Filipinos.

“I don’t want to be overconfident and say na tapos na ito," he pointed out. “I don’t want players to just play games because they are physically superior and more talented. Ang gusto ko manalo kami because we are using a system and not just try to overpower them."

Guiao was later informed that like Laos, Thailand has also backed out of the meet, leaving the country competing with the host, Malaysia and Singapore for the two slots available for the FIBA-Asia meet. – GMANews.TV

Why have Laos and Thailand pulled out?


Laos backed out because they were criticized for not allowing basketball in the upcoming South East Asian Games this year...

Thailand, on the other hand, are just being realistic, they know they will loss to the Philippines.. so why bother...

According to me :p... they heard baldy said that the Powerade RP Team will waste everyone in SEABA by 40-50 points and they got scared :p... and Thailand were jealous of Cambodia for having those free shoes in 2007 :D...

maybe because they think they have no chance.

Actually, the sea games 2009 has canceled basketball as one of the sports. Most SEA Countries just use seaba and fiba asia as a preparation for the sea games since they have no chance of winning them.

can't SEABA just give the RP a bye? i think it's rather pointless having one team just romp the competition with just two spots to play for. this qualifier is a warm up for them.

You guys should be fine... did the other teams in the IBL loan their top players?... back in 1994 Asian Games, the Philippines sent the PBA All-Filipino Cup champion, San Miguel Beermen with some reinforcement of top players from the other teams... of course, the core of the team still that of San Miguel but the top players from the other team helps the team a lot in that tourney... you guys can do the same thing... if not SEABA maybe in FIBA Asia Championship...

Thailand, Laos out of SEABA caging

A piece of good news somehow eased coach Yeng Guiao of the burden brought about by a piece of bad news he received earlier.

Shortly after the PSA Forum wrapped up its weekly session at the Shakey's U.N. Avenue branch, Guiao was informed by RP team liason Renato Chavez of Thailand's sudden withdrawal in the coming South East Asia Basketball Association (SEABA) men's cage championship.

Although expected to romp off with the opposition in the June 6-10 meet in Medan, Indonesia, the absence of the Thais meant one less concern for the Powerade Team Pilipinas team.

Helterbrand suffered a pulled hamstring during Ginebra's playoff game against Rain or Shine Sunday for the second outright semifinals berth of the Motolite-PBA Fiesta Cup.

Although Guiao considered it as a 'minor injury', it also meant Helterbrand would be out of action for the next 10 days as doctors advised him to stay away from practice.

"It's bad news for us, although Willie (Miller) and Ryan (Reyes) are still there to take care of our backcourt," said Guiao.

"We just learned about it yesterday shortly after JayJay have undergone an MRI test."

But with Thailand skipping the SEABA, the load is expected to lessen for the PBA-backed nationals, who now will just have to contend with host Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

Laos was the first to back out, a move Guiao describes as 'nahiya yata sa Pilipinas,' in obvious reference to the country's decision not to include basketball in the calendar of events of the Southeast Asian Games it is hosting at year's end.

"It could be the political situation there," said Guiao, providing the answer himself to a question that puzzled a lot of people.

"Pero sayang din. May team naman yung Thailand at tsaka two slots ang available for the FIBA-Asia," Guiao added.

Chavez said the recent development could shorten the meet to only four days.

Helterbrand, now in his second straight tour of duty with the RP squad, had been included by Guiao in the final 12-man list of the RP quintet.

And as per tournament rule, the final line-up can no longer be altered once it had been submitted.

"We would have wanted to insert Sonny Thoss in the lineup when we learned about JayJay's injury, pero kung ano raw 'yung na-submit, basically, that's it," stressed Guiao.

Thoss (knee) and Kelly Williams (blood disorder) are the two players relegated by the RP coaching staff in the reserve list for the SEABA meet owing to health reasons.

Despite getting hurt, Guiao said the 6-foot-1 Helterbrand, the other half of Ginebra's dreaded backcourt he shares with Mark Caguioa, will still travel with the team in Indonesia. The nationals leave for Medan on June 4.

"We'll take him (Helterbrand) to Indonesia and see the situation on a day-to-day basis," Guiao said.

Although highly-favored to top the competition, the RP coach said he's not taking lightly a tournament long been dominated by the Filipinos. Gerry N. Ramos - Journal Online

Aguilar to suit up for Team Pilipinas, says Guiao


As far as Powerade Team Pilipinas coach Yeng Guiao is concerned, 6-foot-9 center Japeth Aguilar will suit up for the PBA-backed National squad in two important international competitions this year.

Guiao said he is surprised that there are issues being raised on Aguilar's supposed stint for Powerade Team Pilipinas considering the fact that he will be playing for the national squad.

Aguilar, who plays for the US NCAA Division I Western Kentucky University is also being eyed to reinforce the Smart Gilas National team under Serbian coach Rajko Toroman.

Guiao said that he has talked with Aguilar who earlier planned to come and join the team in their practices.

The son of former PBA player Peter, Aguilar was willing to play in the SEABA but needs to fly back to the US by June 16 in time for the NBA Development League Camp.

Since Guiao believes Team Pilipinas, composed of the PBA's top 12 players can easily win the SEABA crown, he instructed Aguilar to finish his commitment with the NBA development league before joining them.

"Because he is not playing for any PBA team, Japeth will be receiving monthly allowances from our sponsor which is equivalent to a salary of a first round pick. It will amount to something like P100,000 to P150,000 and he will play for three months with us," explained Guiao.

The Jones Cup is set for July 18 to 26 in Chinese Taipei and is a tune-up for the team for the much tougher FIBA-Asia men's championship to be played in Tianjin, China.

The SEABA champion will represent the region in the FIBA-Asia tournament, which is a qualifying meet for the World Championship in Turkey next year.

Aguilar hopes to boost Team Pilipinas' interior strength as he plays alongside with 6-foot-10 Paul Asi Taulava and 6-foot-9 Mick Pennisi. GMANews.TV

Guiao sees SEABA a good buildup for FIBA-Asia


RP team coach Yeng Guiao said they will make good use of the SEABA championship in preparation for the Fiba-Asia world qualifier, vowing to stick with their system and not how to overpower the opposition with their star-studded crew.

"We don't want to beat the opponent just because we're more talented and more athletic. We won't overwhelm them with that advantage. We'll sacrifice winning by 40 or 50 points to run the system for future purposes," said Guiao in his appearance in the weekly PSA Forum at the Shakey's UN Avenue branch yesterday.

"We can overwhelm the opposition but we'll not do that. We can let loose let's say Willie Miller or James Yap, telling them to break down the opposition's defense on their own. Our players can do that, but that's not good for us in the long run," Guiao added.

"You spend at least five to 10 seconds running the system per possession. So don't expect to win really big. The best thing is to put together good preparation and huge winning margins," said Guiao.

The SEABA championship is slated June 6-10 in Medan, Indonesia, but there could be adjustments in the schedule on the reported withdrawal of Thailand and Laos.

And chances are the Powerade Team Pilipinas will be playing with only 11 players with Jayjay Helterbrand suffering a pulled hamstring in the Ginebra-Rain or Shine playoff Wednesday. Nelson Beltran - The Philippine Star

Team Pilipinas to test Malaysians mettle in SEABA opener


MANILA, Philippines – Malaysia gets the first crack against the powerhouse Powerade Team Pilipinas as the two countries open hostilities in the 8th South East Asia Basketball Association (SEABA) men’s championship in Medan, Indonesia next week.

The two teams are set to clash at 5:00 p.m. (6:00 p.m. Manila time) in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader on opening day.

The formal opening ceremony precedes the match between the Filipinos and Malaysians, before host Indonesia and Singapore take to the floor in the 8:00 p.m. second game.

SEABA secretary-general Dato Yeoh Choo Hock sent the revised schedule Wednesday following the abrupt withdrawal of Thailand in the June 6 to 9 meet that serves as qualifier to the FIBA-Asia men’s basketball championship in Taijian, China in August.

Before Thailand, Laos was the first to pull out of the tournament, leaving the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia scrambling for the two slots reserved for the region.

The following day (June 7), the PBA-backed nationals under coach Yeng Guiao take on the Indonesians in the 8:00 p.m. main game, shortly after the Singapore-Malaysia opening match.

“Wala kaming pahinga dito," said Guiao of the three straight playing days for the team.

In the absence of Thailand, Guiao pointed to Malaysia as the one team likely to give the Filipinos a good fight.

“Although we’re not also counting out Indonesia because of its advantage as host country. Siyempre, andiyan `yung favorable ang schedule sa kanila, ‘yung comfort ng players nila playing in front of their homecrowd and other intangible factors," added the Filipino coach.

The RP five ends its elimination round campaign against Singapore at 6:00 p.m. on June 8. Indonesia and Malaysia clash in the 8:00 p.m. main game.

The championship game is set the next day (June 9) between the two teams with the best record after the preliminary round. – GMANews.TV

Wel that shows confidence in your team. How do you propose to get better if you dont at least try to compete? Like the Dream Team. They were way too good, but people wanted to get better and compete rather than sit and be complacent with your position. Look in 1994, Dream Team II. They win by ONLY 15 vs. Spain in their opener. I'd rather try to qualify (and get blownout)for FIBA Asia then win SEA Games. You learn more from losses and you are determined to not let it happen again.

RP cagers poised to run over opposition in SEABA


The all-pro Philippine team left for Medan, Indonesia on Thursday, poised to run over the opposition in the June 6 to 10 Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) championship.

Citing the squad's superior skills and cohesion, coach Yeng Guiao is highly-confident his wards would be up to the task of stamping their class on their foes from Singapore, Malaysia and host Indonesia en route to the title and its corresponding berth to the FIBA-Asia Men's Championship in Tianjin, China in August.

"This is one of the taller, quicker national teams we have assembled. Not only are they good playing together, there's a natural likeness for one another and wala yung mga conflict ng personalities," Guiao said in an interview on 24 Oras.

Carrying the fight for the Philippines are Asi Taulava, Mick Pennisi, Jayjay Helterbrand, Ryan Reyes, James Yap, Kerby Raymundo, Cyrus Baguio, Willie Miller, Jared Dillinger, Arwind Santos, Ranidel de Ocampo and Gabe Norwood.

Like their coach, the players are upbeat and raring to do their stuff on the court.

To bring the expected results, Taulava said: "We have to go out there, play well as a team, at the same time execute the system and try to win by big margins."

This will be the first international tournament for the Nationals, whose ultimate mission is to reach the FIBA Asia joust and possibly nail a slot to the 2011 FIBA World Championship.

Prior to the SEABA, the superstar-filled RP quintet had six months of sporadic training, two tuneup games with an Australian selection, and three matches with PBA All-Star selections. GMANews.tv

RP cagers begin bid of securing FIBA-Asia slot

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines bid for a return stint in the FIBA-Asia Men’s Championships begins Saturday when it battles three other teams at the start of the 8th Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) in Medan, Indonesia.

Two slots for the FIBA-Asia Championships are at stake in the SEABA tournament, which will be held at the Angkasapura Lanud Basketball Hall.

The top three finishers in the 25th FIBA-Asia Championship, which will be held Tianjin, China in August, will earn slots in the 16th World Basketball Championship in Istanbul, Turkey in 2010.

Powerade-Team Pilipinas, which left for Indonesia on Thursday, will have Malaysia as its opening assignment at 7:00 p.m. (Manila time) on Saturday. They will face the hosts on Sunday before closing out their campaign against Singapore on Monday.

Team Pilipinas coach Yeng Guiao said the SEABA is only their stepping stone for bigger tournaments ahead for the PBA-backed squad.

“We’re using the SEABA to bond in a big way in preparation for the Jones Cup (in Taipei next month) and the Tianjin tournament," said Guiao.

Though failing to practice as a single unit before leaving Manila, Guiao said they still have time to do some light drills in Indonesia.

The quarterfinal phase of the Motolite-PBA Fiesta Cup lessened Team Pilipinas’ training days. Burger King, which Guiao coaches, is playing in the quarterfinals along with Sta. Lucia, Purefoods and Rain or Shine.

“It’s futile if we don’t have full attendance, and I don’t want to interfere with the plans of the head coaches," he said. “Instead, we’ll practice every morning in Medan – mostly walk through and shoot around – and play in the evening."

Guiao said he is confident that Team Pilipinas would dominate the June 6 to 10 SEABA tournament based on the squad’s superior skills and cohesion.

“This is one of the taller, quicker national teams we have assembled. Not only are they good playing together, there’s a natural likeness for one another and wala yung mga conflict ng personalities," Guiao said in an earlier interview before their departure on Thursday.

Carrying the fight for the Philippines are Asi Taulava, Mick Pennisi, Ryan Reyes, James Yap, Kerby Raymundo, Cyrus Baguio, Willie Miller, Jared Dillinger, Arwind Santos, Ranidel de Ocampo and Gabe Norwood.

Jayjay Helterbrand and Sonny Thoss joined the trip but won’t suit up due to various injuries. Helterbrand suffered a pulled hamstring during Ginebra’s playoff match while Thoss had a strained knee.

Kelly Williams, another RP team member, decided to stay in Manila to fully recover from a blood disorder.

This will be the first international tournament for the Nationals, whose ultimate mission is to reach the FIBA Asia joust and possibly nail a slot to the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

National coach Yeng Guiao gives instructions to the members of the Powerade RP team during a light workout on the eve of their match against Malaysia in the SEABA championship in Medan, Indonesia.

Powerade RP begins quest vs Malaysia

MEDAN, Indonesia -- The Powerade Team Pilipinas had a light workout to shake off jet lag from a long trip from Manila, then declared it's ready to start its campaign in the eighth SEABA championship against Malaysia at the Angkasapura Lanud Basketball Hall here today.

The Nationals battle the Malaysians at 6 p.m. (7 p.m. in Manila) in the first of four light games the RP pro stars have to go through here before officially moving into the next stage of its bid for a ticket in the World Championship -- the 25th Fiba-Asia Championship in Tianjin, China in August.

For national coach Yeng Guiao, the Malaysian game brings back bitter memories of an upset loss the Philippines suffered at the hands of the host team in the 1989 Kuala Lumpur SEA Games.

"It was extreme. They (the Malaysians) did everything to win. They didn't allow us to practice in the playing venue. They allowed us to practice in another venue but we couldn't practice just the same because the lights were off. Going to the games, our driver would drive us around. We would come with the game already about to start," Guiao said.

"I don't think that would happen here. But to be sure, we sent an advance party (led by PBA official Willy Marcial) here to take care of the things that we would need. So far, everything's okay," Guiao said.

The Kuala Lumpur debacle marked the only time the Philippines failed to win the championship in any Southeast Asian joust (SEA Games or SEABA) it competed in.

With a selection of PBA stars, the Powerade-RP is expected to dominate the opposition and clinch the SEABA championship for the first of two slots for Southeast Asian region in the Tianjin Asian Championship which determines the three Asian teams competing in the world meet in Turkey next year.

"We're using the SEABA to bond in a big way in preparation for the Tianjin tournament," said Guiao.

Point guard Jayjay Helterbrand (pulled hamstring) and center Sonny Thoss (strained knee) joined the trip but won't be suiting up. Kelly Williams, recuperating from a blood disorder that briefly put on hold his playing career, stayed home.

The RP squad, led by team captain Asi Taulava and assistant skipper Kerby Raymundo, checked in their billeting quarters at around 11 p.m. Thursday after a tiring six-hour trip from Manila to this North Sumatra capital -- the third largest city in Indonesia after Jakarta and Surabaya.

Guiao cancelled the RP team practice prior to their departure to give way to the crucial phase of the Motolite-PBA Fiesta Cup quarterfinals.

"It's futile if we don't have full attendance, and I don't want to interfere with the plans of the head coaches. Instead, we'll practice every morning here -- mostly walk through and shootaround -- and play in the evening," said Guiao. Nelson Beltran - The Philippine Star

TEAM PILIPINAS
Powerade Team Pilipinas triumphs


MEDAN, Indonesia -- The Powerade Team Pilipinas, as expected, got off to a triumphant start in the eighth SEABA championship but suffered a setback with point guard Ryan Reyes hit by a pulled hamstring.

Though down to 11 healthy men, the RP squad hardly had trouble fashioning out a 100-73 drubbing of Malaysia before a cheering capacity crowd at the oven-hot Angkasapura Lanud Basketball Hall here last night.

Arwind Santos, Cyrus Baguio, Jared Dillinger, Willie Miller, Asi Taulava and Ranidel de Ocampo all scored in double figures as the Nationals toyed with the young Malaysian team, the core of which composed of the stars of the Malaysian youth team that made the FIBA Asia junior men championship in Tehran, Iran last year.

Alas, the team suffered a blow as Reyes heard his left hamstring pop when he went for a lay-up towards the end of the first quarter. He was helped to the bench and just watched the game with his right leg wrapped with ice.

RP team trainer and physical therapist Marlon Celis said Reyes could be out for weeks, depending on how severe the injury is. Celis said Jayjay Helterbrand took about six months to completely recover from the same injury last year.

Helterbrand, nursing a different injury, is likely to sit out the SEABA joust together with Sonny Thoss who's relegated as alternate due to a bruised knee. Kelly Williams stayed home while nursing a blood disorder.

"I have yet to talk to Ryan but obviously we have to assess his situation. We have one point guard left in Willie Miller and he's not a natural point. This we also have to discuss," said coach Yeng Guiao.

In seeing his team in its first official game, Guiao thought they still have a lot to work on but expressed satisfaction over their overall performance.

"We'll improve as the tournament progresses. We still have to do a lot of adjustments but I think we got a good start," said Guiao.

"The biggest adjustment will be on the refs' calls. Talagang nakakapanibago but the team has made a commitment that whatever happens, we'll play on and not complain. This is a difficult situation for the players because they're not getting the kind of protection they usually get in the PBA," Guiao added.

"We have to improve on defense. In this game we played defense only in the fourth and we had the tendency to relax after making a run. But that's mental. Technically, I think we did well. We shot the ball well and moved the ball well to find the open man."

Shooting 65 percent from the two-point zone and 19.2 from the three-point area and issuing 26 assists, the Nationals had easy time taking control from start to finish.

They outscored the Malaysian on all quarters, enjoying 32-point spreads as they stepped up their defense that fueled their transition game in the final half.

Santos, Dillinger and Norwood highlighted the Nationals' domination of the Malaysians with jams that electrified the crowd at the cramped venue which is close to the Medan Airport.

Santos had two thunderous dunks, including one off Koh Way Tek on an alley-oop pass by Dillinger. The reed-thin forward scored a game-high 19 points that went with eight rebounds, four steals and one assist against five errors.

Baguio banged in a triple and totaled 16 points on top of three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

The whole team converted five of 26 three-point tries, two coming from Pennisi and one each from Miller and James Yap.

The Malaysians did better in three-point shooting with a 11-of-25 clip. Nelson Beltran - The Philippine Star

Powerade-RP five crushes Malaysia in Seaba

MEDAN, Indonesia -- If at all, the crowd that packed the small venue Saturday night didn't notice anything lacking with Powerade-Team Pilipinas.

But not coach Yeng Guiao.

The Nationals took quite a while in adjusting to the international brand of play before hammering out a 100-73 victory over Malaysia that raised the curtains of the eighth Southeast Asian Basketball Association (Seaba) men's cage championship at the Angkasapura Lanud Hall here.

Arwind Santos scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds, joining hands with Jared Dillinger to provide some spectacular above-the-rim plays that had a pro-Indonesian crowd up on its feet together with a small Filipino audience.

"We need to improve our defense," Guiao told Filipino sportswriters later. "It's very difficult because they (Filipinos) don't get the protection they usually get in the PBA (as far as referees' calls are concerned).

"Adjustments have to be made as far as the referees' calls are concerned," he added.

But Guiao lost one of his best technical men late in the third quarter, when point guard Ryan Reyes pulled his left hamstring after going for a drive. The team's trainer refused to give an early prognosis, but Guiao is readying the team for the worst.

"We're down to one point guard, Willie Miller, and he isn't even a natural point guard," the coach said as Jay-Jay Helterbrand has already been stricken off the roster for this tournament also because of a hamstring pull.

The Philippines held Malaysia to just 10 points in the first period to build a 16-point lead before taking its first 20-point spread at the start of the third as Asi Taulava completed a three-point play for 47-27.
The scores:

POWERADE-RP TEAM 100 -- Santos 19, Baguio 16, Dillinger 15, Miller 13, Taulava 11, De Ocampo 10, Yap 8, Pennisi 6, Norwood 2, Raymundo 0, Reyes 0.

MALAYSIA 73 -- Tong 14, Wee 13, Kuek 10, Yeow 7, Ng 6, Kwaan 5, Chee 4, Ong 3, Chin 2, Koh 2, Heh 0.

Quarters: 26-10, 44-27, 74-54, 100-73

43-31. Is this team playing defense at all? This only shows that this team clearly lack practice games and FIBA Asia is just 2 months away. Coach Yeng was very arrogant saying they'll beat opponents with 30 to 40 points margin. Next time coach, back your words up. We can kiss our FIBA World dreams goodbye. PBA is hopeless and with Barrios at the helm it will all be down hill for the league. Maybe they should scrap the word "professional" coz certainly they're not qualified to be called one.

Well, I've heared that this Indonesian team (right now in SEABA '09) was not their NT (not from selection). It was only one of the teams in their IBL league. I'm not happy with the half time result.

I know Team Pilipinas were struggling in SEABA! They're expected to blew out 50-60pts margin. That's why their performance were struggling because of depleted line-up, no PG, more players as most of major injuries and ofcourse LACK OF TEAM CHEMISTRY. I hoped Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam were joined the tournament for jelling, preparation (like practice game), discipline and more events for TEAM CHEMISTRY.

here we go... not a bad win... people should accept the win regardless of the result or the margin... this is just their second outing... it just not that going to click right away...

I rather have them winning by 5-10 points margin or even by 1 point and then seeing them make it through to the World Champs... than watching them wasted everyone, only to see our team loss at the end...

Its ridiculous people giving up right away when the game is not [email protected]#$king finish yet... have faith people... I know its gonna be a hard road and personally, I don't see our team winning a medal in FIBA Asia but I'll be damn I don't support our national team..

congrats on the win but the issue here is that RP team really starts slow and I'm not talking about this team only but the previous RP team as well. We can't afford this kind of showing in FIBA-Asia qualifier. It's obvious that players are feeling out each others game but we were given the time to prepare and we were invited to play in Qatar, the PBA turned it down and we also had a chance to go up against a Puerto Rico club team but instead we had a lowly unknown Australian team as our lone practice game with a foreign opponent after that a RP vs PBA All Star which was not really a practice game but more of a treat for the fans.

It is okay to believe and give full support to the team but how can we fully support a team and hope that they'll even land a 3rd place finish just to be in WBC when there's almost nothing to back it up.

I know that Coach yeng is an uncanny coach who can bring out the best from his players but this is not the PBA, we're talking about FIBA-Asia here.

The Australian team is a selection not really a team...

Thats why, I said on my post, that personally, in my own opinion, PBA-RP Team will not win a medal and thats because of lack of preparation... but I will still support the team til the end... win or loss.. if we win against some low level team with a small margin then accept it.. a win is a win... at the end, if we do make it through... then thats the bonus...

(1) this team is a collection of the best players in our country today (2) as previously posted, 8 of the members in this pool were part of the 2007 NT (3) i don't believe this team really lack training and preparation, come fiba-asia this team would have already logged a total of 18+ tune up games. (2 games with the australian selection, 3 games with the pba, 4 games in seaba and 9 more games in jones cup and maybe more) so its not bad at all... if you compare it to the number of tune up games our 2007 NT had, our 2007 NT had more, maybe almost double than 18, but look at what happened to them. this team will become better as the tournament draws near... right now my prediction is we'll make it into top 3 and once i see the groupings come june 17, this prediction won't change (you maybe one of the most prepared teams in the tournament but what will happen if you were grouped in a group of death? like what happened to the 2007 RP NT). june 17 is really really crucial for us, so let's hope we'll get lucky this time. right now, i only see china as the only team that is assured of qualifying to wbc while the 2 remaining slots are still up for grabs... pilipinas all the way!

Team Pilipinas defeated Indonesia 103-64

:):):):)


An impressive win against southeast asia's no. 2 national team. I do hope they'll do better in a more competitive practice tournament like the Jones Cup.

For now they're functioning well as a unit and the killer instinct is already there. But I still want to see them play against a real asian powerhouse.

I am one of those f2cking critics of Yeng Guiao but a clear supporter of Team Philippines. I always love to be proven wrong by Yeng but he needs do a lot more convincing to buy his idea of seclusive training. I am a firm believer of hands on training facing a much greater opposition not lesser that is a real test of a team character.

I am quite firm on my stand for Powerade not to join the Jones Cup, an obvious scouting ground for our asian counterparts. The Philippines have this habit (tendency) of going all the way to win this tournament to the delight of many adoring OFW fans in Taiwan, not knowing that most asian teams hide their aces, make proper adjustments and be ready for us in the asian regionals, we never learned from this and turned out disappointed everytime, sure we beat some of the asian powerhouses in that tournament that does not matter. Powerade just needs to play with much stronger teams beyond asia and Yeng can do whatever he thinks is best possible to make those adjustments.

Everyone of us wants the Philippines to go to Turkey, where the world's very best will come and play, can we not for a change think global and set our minds preparing for a world's competition and not just contented of just playing in asia and try to qualify?

Allow me to set an example. Lebanon, as we all know is in the process of forming its strongest national team ever. Iran is due for a training camp in Germany and Serbia. What would that tell you ? They're both setting their sights beyond the FIBA-Asia Championships.

Can you see the big difference ? China of course, is already way far beyond asia.

Like I suggested before, the Boomers of Australia and The Tall Blacks of New Zealand are on a training tour clearly the quality of these two teams are above the rest of asia except of course China. Even far Angola wants to come and visit the Philippines and play our national team.

We're just letting go a good opportunity to play some of the world's best

well i just heard lebanon just recruited former nba player jackson vroman.
i like what they're doing in the sense that they're not wasting the prime years
of the so-talented fadi el-khatib by giving him the help that he needs as much as possible

definitely, no team is poise to unseat china from the throne at the moment
i thoroughly believe that south korea, lebanon, iran, qatar, jordan, kazahkstan and the philippines all have a 50/50 chance of beating each other, meaning, no team is clearly superior from the others
japan and taiwan is getting there, in the 2nd-tier territory.

we can 1-up are chance to get to our goals if we naturalize players the way lebanon, jordan and japan did
its not conceding that we can't compete on our own, but, its trying to win whenever the chance presents itself

with one of the best selections of players our NT ever produced (talk about a much improve norwood and several veterans who were exposed to international play in the last 5 years, plus the experience they gained and lessons learned form past failures) and a winning coach whose system is much more inclined and alike to international game and knows best on how to use players to be at their best, this is definitely our FUCKING chance to get there

so why not reinforce our team with a vogel-type center. that's the last missing piece. but again, our NT would not seize the opportunity. maybe they'll wait for 5-8 more years before finally realizing they truly needed one. That 6'6-6'7 filipino centers can't make the job done no matter what if the opponent they're facing are 6'11-7'1 tall. Even Guaio proposed this idea. And vogel-type players are scattered all over europe and the americas.

i hope the window is still open when that time comes.

well i just heard lebanon just recruited former nba player jackson vroman.
i like what they're doing in the sense that they're not wasting the prime years
of the so-talented fadi el-khatib by giving him the help that he needs as much as possible

definitely, no team is poise to unseat china from the throne at the moment
i thoroughly believe that south korea, lebanon, iran, qatar, jordan, kazahkstan and the philippines all have a 50/50 chance of beating each other, meaning, no team is clearly superior from the others
japan and taiwan is getting there, in the 2nd-tier territory.

we can 1-up are chance to get to our goals if we naturalize players the way lebanon, jordan and japan did
its not conceding that we can't compete on our own, but, its trying to win whenever the chance presents itself

with one of the best selections of players our NT ever produced (talk about a much improve norwood and several veterans who were exposed to international play in the last 5 years, plus the experience they gained and lessons learned form past failures) and a winning coach whose system is much more inclined and alike to international game and knows best on how to use players to be at their best, this is definitely our FUCKING chance to get there

so why not reinforce our team with a vogel-type center. that's the last missing piece. but again, our NT would not seize the opportunity. maybe they'll wait for 5-8 more years before finally realizing they truly needed one. That 6'6-6'7 filipino centers can't make the job done no matter what if the opponent they're facing are 6'11-7'1 tall. Even Guaio proposed this idea.

i hope the window is still open when that time comes.

well according to Noli Eala naturalizing is a delicate issue and issuing citizenship is not like giving away a piso to a street beggar.

I agree Guiao made said proposal ..... but did the PBA help out in searching for players to naturalized .... remember it is the PBA teams who had connections to agents of imports. They should have done something more active than just voice service. They could have asked their supplier of imports to give their recommendations and forwarded to the SBP.

Now it's too late.

NATIONALS MASSACRE HOST INDONESIA
source: http://www.pba.ph/content/view/2676/1/

James Yap leads carnage with 21 points, 13 in first half

MEDAN – The torrential jeers from the boisterous hometown crowd and the steady chanting of “In-do-ne-sia!” rained down on Powerade-Team Pilipinas from the onset late Sunday.
Then James Yap and the rest of the national team decided they had enough of the local abuse heaped on them.

Yap poured in 13 of his game-high 21 points in the first half, drilling in three consecutive triples in one breathtaking run in the second quarter as Powerade-RP clobbered host Indonesia, 103-64, for its second straight win in the 8th Southeast Asian Basketball Association Men’s Championship at the Angkasapura Lanud Basketball Hall.

The PBA-backed national team, bound for the 25th FIBA World Championship qualifier in Tianjin, China in August, was to play winless Singapore Monday night with the intention of moving into the final game Tuesday against the winner of the Indonesia-Malaysia encounter later that evening.

The Nationals blasted the Malaysians, 100-73, Saturday, a game where the Nationals lost point guard Ryan Reyes to a pulled hamstring muscle on his left thigh.

Reyes joined injured teammates Jayjay Helterbrand and Sonny Thoss in serving as utility personnel during the pre-game shootaround, and they sat together at the far-end corner of the bench whopping when the Nationals started ripping the Indons apart.

A different version from the one the Chot Reyes-mentored RP team pummeled in Ratchaburi, Thailand two years ago, the Nationals took a 5-2 lead as Powerade-RP went blank on its next six possessions after Asi Taulava broke the ice.

Then the Nationals got going with an 11-0 run to silence the packed spectators, and the closest the Indons came to an upset was 13-11 before Yap turned hot.

As expected, the opposition got a boost not only from their compatriots.

Yap picked up two quick fouls eight minutes into the game, and Jared Dillinger got whistled for three halfway through the second quarter.

With less than a minute left in the half, Yap was called for his third personal, but not after the Purefoods hotshot had drained three consecutive triples to give the Philippines its first 20-point lead, 42-22.

Indonesia picked up just four fouls in the first 20 minutes.

Just about everybody got into the act from there, with Gabe Norwood and Arwind Santos throwing down vicious dunks one after the other and Willie Miller and slasher Cyrus Baguio turning the Indonesian shaded lane into a freeway.

In the trenches, Kerby Raymundo grabbed 10 rebounds, Mick Pennisi had nine boards with two shotblocks, Ranidel de Ocampo eight, and Dillinger and Taulava five each.

The lead was 75-45 after three quarters and 97-56 – a whopping 41 points – by the time the slam-dunk exhibition had reached its peak.

“I feel a lot better. I’m actually relieved,” said national coach Yeng Guiao. “I knew we could play better than we did against Malaysia.

“It was, after all, our first game since the All-Stars plus it’s a new environment. But once they got used to the conditions here, they became what we want them to be – a fast-breaking team with hustling defense. They just pushed themselves."

Meanwhile, PBA commissioner Renauld 'Sonny' Barrios arrived from Manila in time for the second half of the RP-Indonesia game, joining the Nationals at the locker room and taking a seat beside team manager JB Baylon.

The scores:

POWERADE-RP 103 – Yap 21, Santos 18, Miller 12, Norwood 11, Taulava 10, Baguio 8, Raymundo 8, Dillinger 7, Pennisi 5, De Ocampo 3.

INDONESIA 64 – Sumargo 11, Suro 10, Wuysang 9, Poedjakusuma 9, Agustinus 9, Sudiadnyana 6, Wibawa 5, Sigar 2, Thoyib 2, Purwanto 1, Fitzgerald 0, Budianto 0.

Quarterscores: 20-14, 46-25, 75-45, 103-64

well according to Noli Eala naturalizing is a delicate issue and issuing citizenship is not like giving away a piso to a street beggar.

its not as difficult as it may seem, though i may not be in the position to say so
you look at lebanon, they naturalized vogel then they replaced him with another foreign player, easy
its not really hard since jordan and japan had naturalized as well
i dont see any reason why not to exploit the rule

difficulty on finding or paying a naturalized player shouldn't really be an issue here since paying them large sums of money is already a given
the issue is pride as what happened when guiao and company didnt want to hand the coaching duties to former iran olympian coach toroman
im not against it since i know guiao is very much qualified for the job

my point of view is this, lebanon barely beat us in 2007 jones cup and RP team proved that it was a fluke by beating them twice consecutively
we beat iran in the jones cup 2007 as well, and we almost defeated them in fiba asia
that is considering that our RP team started the game very uptight (i can still remember when chot reyes scolded them during a 1st quarter timeout saying "wag ka yong takot!") which is easily understandable for their lack of experience in international basketball
Iran and lebanon finished 1st and 2nd respectively in fiba asia
also consider that both teams had skilled 7 footers who can do it all
consider that both teams towered us, that we're undersized in the interior
but we still have every bit of a chance to beat them

i believe that's our missing piece, if there's a chance to win now, win now!

JR sakuragis naturalization took 10 years in the making he is like Bobby Parks of the phils. do you still believe that the naturalization is the only way we can win....:D

ahh 10 years! too long right?

can you give me details too on how long jordan naturalized the one american black player they've got, i forgot the name though but im sure you know him

and also how long it took lebanon to naturalized vroman or vogel
its seems it wont take that long

naturalizing players makes our chances of winnning very much improved and i didnt say its the only way to win

if you watch fiba asia 2007, when we played the elite teams, we didnt have a post game or failed to establish one (we almost beat them, though)
offensive rebounds are a plenty for the opposing team
when the guards throw the ball to taulava at the post he's hesitant and would rather go back to the perimeter to give the guards a screen then a hand-off
that's funny really, giving back the ball to the guards to create
post game gives enough space for our guards to shoot or penetrate

china had zhizhi, jianlian at the post
iran had the their talented center train for memphis grizzlies
lebanon upgraded vogel to vroman (former nba player)

as for sokor, qatar and kazaks, i think we can match their big men but as i've said it would be china, iran and lebanon which hold a tight grip to the top 3 which we are targeting

a 6'7 de ocampo, 6'7 thoss, 6'6 raymundo, 6'9 pennisi and 6'9 taulava wont get the job done against the equally talented 7 footers of these teams
what if taulava get injured, what if he's in foul trouble, then your best interior defender will be gone

AS EXPECTED, POWERADE-RP RUNS ROUGHSHOD OVER SINGAPORE
Nationals take on Indons anew Tuesday for SEABA championship
Tuesday, 09 June 2009

MEDAN – Nat King Cole may again be singing in the background, but Powerade-Team Pilipinas will be dancing to rock ‘n roll music all game long.

The Nationals battle host Indonesia in a rematch Tuesday night, hoping to silence the raucous hometown crowd early in the final game of the 8th Southeast Asian Basketball Association Men’s Championship at the Angkasapura Lanud Basketball Hall here.
With the legendary crooner’s unmistakable velvety voice filling the venue Monday, the Philippines ripped Singapore, 117-69, to sweep the elimination and claim the first berth to the FIBA-Asia World Championship qualifier in August.

On the instructions of head coach Yeng Guiao, the Nationals shifted into fast break overdrive right away, running down the Singaporeans behind Cyrus Baguio, virtually untouchable in going 10 of 14 from the field and 8 of 9 from the free throw line for 28 points – a tournament high.

Ranidel de Ocampo slashed for 17 points with 10 rebounds, and team captain Asi Taulava, in his best performance so far, muscled his way to 14 points with 13 rebounds.

“Our emphasis is to really ingrain the fastbreak concept on the guys, whether we’re playing a strong, big team or a small team that’s also quick like Singapore,” said Guiao. “The important thing for me is to be consistent with the running game.”

In the do-or-die second game, the Indons forced Malaysia into 24 turnovers in scraping a 74-67 victory, gaining a title showdown with the PBA-backed RP team at 7 p.m. and securing the second spot to the 25th FIBA-Asia Men’s Championship in Tianjin, China.

Both the Philippines and Indonesia made it to the 24th FIBA Asia Olympic qualifier two years ago in Tokushima, Japan after topping the 7th SEABA elimination in Ratchaburi, Thailand, and their return reaffirmed their dominance in the region.

Though nothing much is at stake except the placing and the bragging rights, neither team entertains the thought of leaving this capital of North Sumatra province with its head bowed.

Indonesia, comprised mainly of the No. 2 club team in the country, absorbed a 103-64 beating from the Nationals Sunday and is not likely to aim for an upset as much as respect from its opponent, a galaxy of professional superstars.

Powerade-RP, on the other hand, would want nothing more than to put behind the SEABA as quickly as possible in order to attend to more pressing matters – the Jones Cup in Taipei next month and the World Championship qualifier four weeks later.

Singapore, led by a Joseph Yeo look-alike point guard named Wong Wei Long who gave Willie Miller and Gabe Norwood fits, was out of it early, falling behind 33-14 after the first quarter, 58-25 at the half, and 93-45 at three-quarter’s end.

With the jeering pro-Indonesian crowd not yet in full force during the Singapore match, the atmosphere in the arena was light, courtesy of some silky ballroom tunes.

And though it offered little of the electrifying slam-dunk sideshow that marked the RP-Indonesia game the night before, Day 3 of competition will be remembered for the unconventional music played during the pre-game shootaround, as well as in the timeout and halftime breaks.

Long used to warming up to hard-pounding, ear-splitting Top 20 music or classic rock beats, the Nationals were pleasantly surprised to hear the silky voice of one of the ‘50s greatest balladeers wafting out of the public address speakers, someone vaguely familiar to only two or three of them.

As it turned out, Col. Lee Kak Kuan, the 69-year-old SEABA commissioner and trusted colleague of FIBA-Asia secretary-general Dato Yeoh Choo Hock, brought with him a CD of the “Unforgettable” and “Mona Lisa” singer and had it played.

“The music they were playing here was too loud for me, too noisy,” said Col. Lee, who assigns referees in FIBA-Asia tournaments. “This one’s better, see? Nice for dancing, right?”

RP assistant coach Roehl Nadurata apparently agreed.

Nadurata, himself from that golden era, grabbed PBA media bureau chief Willy Marcial by the hand and the two improvised a quick waltz just before the buzzer, delighting PBA commissioner Renauld 'Sonny' Barrios and team manager JB Baylon.

PBA: "We have no coverage for the SEABA Games to be aired on CS/9. But the good news is we are taking some videos for our file so that maybe just maybe it could be show/played when the PBA Playoffs resumes on June 14"

Yes. Norwood should be taking it strong inside instead of trying to force the issue from the three. It's also not helping that the referees are calling more fouls on our team.

Correct me if im wrong. i think Ranidel got 18 pts and 10 rebs in the last game that's why the refs are s focused on fouling out ranidel to lessen our rebounding and shooting.

3rd Q 7:41 RP 54 - 34 INA

How can this RP team beat China if they are not capable of shooting at least 10 3's per game. Look at Toroman's team. They shoot better from the 3 than this Powerade team because there are many pure shooters in Toroman's team.

Team Pilipinas routs Indons to rule SEABA

Email this | Email the Editor | Print | ShareThis
MANILA, Philippines – Powerade-Team Pilipinas cruised to a 98-68 win over hosts Indonesia to claim the 8th Southeast Asian Basketball Association (SEABA) crown at the Angkasapura Lanud Basketball Hall in Medan, Indonesia.

The Yeng Guiao-coached RP 5 thus secured one of the two slots for the FIBA-Asia men's basketball championship in Taijin, China this August. Indonesia, for placing second in the four-day tournament, also earned a spot in the FIBA-Asia meet.

After a tight first quarter, where Indonesia even held a slim lead, the PBA-backed national squad broke the game wide-open in the second period using a 12-0 run for a 46-32 halftime lead.

An Arwind Santos pass to a streaking James Yap, who finished the fastbreak play, capped that scoring spurt for the RP 5.

It was smooth sailing after that with the closest the Indonesians could get is at 60-43 with 4:31 left in the third period.

They enjoyed their biggest lead of 39 points, 95-56, with four minutes left in the final period.

All of Team Pilipinas’ elimination round wins are in lopsided fashion: Malaysia, 100-73, 103-64, Indonesia, and Singapore, 117-69. – GMANews.TV

they just have to practice more, the problem is that when they go back to their PBA mother teams they are not required to practice that much with their shots from beyond rhe 3-point arc as most of them are not given that kind of role in their mother teams.

Playing to a diffrent venue can be a factor. We may never know right?based on the pictures i even question if the court itself is FIBA standards..:D

first of all, my congratulations to the RP-Poweraide team for winning the SEABA tourney!

now on the issue, i somewhat expected them to shoot poorly from the 3-point arc in this tourney as they don't have Helterbrand and Reyes who are both good 3-point shooters. only Yap is the legitimate shooter on the team with Pennisi, De Ocampo, Miller, Baguio and Santos being average shooters.

i'm expecting an improvement of their outside shooting once Helterbrand and Reyes return to play for the team.
