    Silence, Fajardo & A Breakout Game

    By Marian C. Baring
    Sun.Star Staff Reporter

    THE Cebu Coliseum fell dramatically silent in yesterday’s first game of the Reinforced Partners Cup basketball competition.

    Quite a number of seats were empty and the regular basketball fanatics who were not there missed out on a lot as they failed to witness the breakout game of Aspac Bank-University of Cebu’s center Junmar Fajardo.

    Touted a year ago more for his height and lanky figure than his ability to shoot a ball, Fajardo came a long way since his debut in the first Partners Cup. Yesterday, the 6-foot-7 behemoth showed a performance that was nothing short of spectacular as he scored a whooping 50 points to lift Aspac Bank-UC to a 108-100 win over R. Lapid’s Chicharon.

    What made the win even sweeter was that it was a come-from-behind and an overtime win.

    “He was gone for almost a year from the basketball scene, but he had been in therapy and we had taught him a lot and he had improved dramatically,” said therapist Dr. Dejaño, who had attended to Fajardo after he suffered an injury during the first Partners Cup.

    Record-breaking

    Fajardo broke his own record in this competition. He scored 40 points earlier in Danao, which was then the highest for the league. He is also the first player to have breached the 50-point marker since the 90s, a feat that was accomplished by Aldrin Ocañada.


    This was the second time that Aspac Bank foiled a possible upset. Last Sunday, it also pulled off a backdoor win over Unilab/Alaxan-Don Bosco College, which was also extended to overtime.

    Yesterday, R. Lapid’s came rampaging into the game and was able to build a confident 19-point lead, and was dictating the game’s tempo for the better part of it.

    In the final period, Aspac Bank-UC, which was behind, 57-76, initiated a rousing comeback behind Kelvin Juliane to widen the gap to a reachable, 86-88.

    Pressure

    By this time, the once composed R. Lapid’s came crashing down as they succumbed to pressure to force crucial turnovers.

    Fajardo then tied the game at 88-all in the final 24 seconds with an easy fastbreak layup. Jansen Abella missed a supposedly winning basket to force overtime.

    Abella and Juliane, with Fajardo, owned the extra period en route to UC’s sixth win in eight games. Fajardo then completed his 50-point performance with a slam dunk in the final few ticks. He earned a technical for hanging at the ring too long and received a few lashing from coach Rhoel Gomez, but this did not stop UC from taking its victory.


    Juliane scored 22 markers, while Abella had 14. USPF’s losing bid was led by Bogart Nemenzo, who had 23. USPF fell to a 1-6 slate.

    Aspac Bank-UC (108)--Fajardo 50, Juliane 22, Abella 14, Abatayo 9, Agas 5, Flanco 3, Canceran 3 R. Lapid’s-USP (100)--Nemenzo 23, Rogado 19, Avila 12, Gulane 11, Bardilas 10, Rivera 6, Tabada 5, Monterde 4. (MCB)

    Seems like he is a much better prospect than Gregory Slaughter.

    i think so bro.. JF is much better than GS, but im still hoping for GS to improve a lot next cesafi season, its rare to have a 6"11" player here in the Phils. This 2 would create a big stir on next cesafi season..

    Absolutely no comparison whatsoever.

    Junmar could be the next great Center for the Philippines. About time, since Asi only has very few years left.

    JF is still 18 right? So there's a possibility that will he grow more. Maybe add an inch or 2..

    Can someone post the complete stats of JF?? rebounds? blocks? even if it's just estimates...

    is it confirmed that his 6'7? Or another case of overhyping...

    I'll still root for Greg Slaughter coz you can't teach height. I hope the team that he's now in should help him develop ...

    We already have a lot of 6'7 and some are playing SF and PF. Maybe they should train Junmar to play 3 and 4. This is the main problem of our college or amateur coaches they'll force guys from 6'5 and above to play center instead of developing them to a swingman. A lot of coaches system are obsolete good only for 80's and 90's basketball....SBP should address this problem coz there are a lot of good players not playing their natural position for their height and a big example of this is Jervy Cruz...

    Jervy Cruz might be a case of an overhyped player because of playing from a prestigious league (UAAP) which has only 8 or 9 teams...

    There are already handful of overhyped young PBA players coming from UAAP or NCAA like Intal, Kramer, Marvin Cruz, Bono, Rich Alvarez, Artadi, etc....How can we gauge if they're that good when the collegiate leagues here are divided....

    he's a legit 6'7" or maybe taller.. this is not overhyping bro.. what we are posting here is the stats he have with all of those games he played in the cesafi partners cup.. he is scoring a lot.. proven for college player (18 yrs old only).

    just a thought..junmar fajardo's stint in this semi-pro league (i assumed this is semi-pro because of the presence of ex-pros like gilbert demape) will make him ineligible in the big collegiate leagues like UAAP and NCAA.

    Am i right?

    I don't think Jervy Cruz is overhyped, because first, the UAAP or the NCAA are arguably the best collegiate leagues in the country right now; Second, Jervy's average rebounds per game is something that no player in years has been able to match. Of course, you can argue about this, or about that regarding his stats, but bottomline is that no other player except SAM EKWE has been able to match his rebounding averages in the last decade in the UAAP or NCAA.

    sadly, I was at work when this happened

    Am i right?
    nope, its not semipro..its called the Partners Cup and the only players who can suit up for the school are their alumni and that is without big pay(4000 php allowance per game per team I guess with 12-15 players on the roster)

    Logically if you have a lineup of 6'1, 6'2, 5'10, 6'0 and 6'4, you will make the 6'4 guy play center right? there is just not enough big men for schools locally and so many wingmen who can actually play 3 or 2 are forced to play 4 or 5 because it follows that you cant make the 5'10 guy play that position. The solution is to find more big men so this guys can play their natural positions rather than play center. and oh by the way, GS vs. JF? no brainer.. and if you want to see him in UAAP or NCAA, he already used up 2 years eligibility including now, he has to sit out 1 season for transfer so that should leave 2 more seasons but I bet, UC will do everything to keep him

    Then what happens to the 6'4 center after college. A one-dimensional player who was trained to rebound and score on the post...That is why the coach's philosophy here are oboslete because it hinders the young 6'5 and above guys from developing and playing their natural position.

    have you ever watched the Yonsei University Korean team that played here. They have no true centers and what did they do, they let their players play to their natural position which makes every player capable of scoring anywhere in the court be it in 3 point shot or 2.....Heck, I would even bet all of my money that no college team here in RP can beat that Yonsei team...

    If those damn college coaches set aside their pride and observe how college ball is played around the world and not rely on that basketball philosophy whom they have learned from their forefathers so that they may know that basketball is also evolving.

    How many tall young players have been left out and set aside because of this damn coaches who prefer 6'5, 6'4 centers whom others think are prospect for our RP team. Damn!!!

    Fajardo Powers UC With 50-pt Game

    By Gabby Malagar
    Wednesday, January 16, 2008

    Six-foot-seven giant Jun Mar Fajardo had his most dominating game so far - 50 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots - to help UC-Aspac Bank eke out a come from behind 108-100 overtime victory over USPF-R. Lapid’s Chicharon in last night’s game of the Reinforced Partner’s Cup at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Fajardo scored at will in the overtime period, including a trademark slam with 19.4 ticks left and UC leading 108-99. Fajardo was whistled for a technical for hanging in the ring but the game was already in the bag for UC.

    The slotman had his second scoring spree in the tournament. Last Sunday he scored 40 points in UC’s loss to frontrunner USJ-R/Bibbo Hotdog. This time around, Fajardo made sure his efforts would not go to waste.


    UC was looking at a 76-57 disadvantage in the fourth quarter when Kelvin Juliane scored seven straight points to ignite a 12-2 binge that closed the gap, 69-78.

    Another crippling 11-2 run, with Juliane again leading the attack, tied the score at 88, late in the fourth quarter.

    USPF then squandered their chance to win by blowing an inbound pass that paved the way for the extra period.

    With UC getting the momentum, USPF could only watch in awe as Fajardo dominated the game to give UC its sixth win in eight games. The loss dropped USPF to a 1-6 slate.

    The scores
    UC/Aspac(108)- Fajardo 50, Juliane 22, Abella 14, Abatayo 9, Agas 5, Flanco 3, Ceniza 2

    USPF/R. Lapid’s Chicharon (100)—Nemenzo 23, Rogado 19,Avila 12, Gulane 11, Sereño 10, Rivera 6, Tabada 5, Monterde 4, Halftime: 36-47 OT. 88-all Reg.
