    TNT’s chief gunner finishes with 7 triples en route to a game-high 23 points
    Sunday, 13 August 2006

    Ren-Ren Ritualo had 15 of his game-high 23 points in the second period, inclusive of five triples, as the San Miguel Beer-backed Team Philippines bucked a lackluster start to rout Lebanon’s national squad 94-75 Sunday at the Cuneta Astrodome in the first of their two-game goodwill series.

    Led by Ritualo’s second quarter explosion, the Filipinos outscored the Lebanese 39-19 in that period, overcoming deficits of as much as 10 in the first 12 minutes of play.

    The third-leading local scorer in the past 2005-06 season of the PBA, Ritualo went 5-of-8 from behind arc in a 22-9 run by the SMB-RP Team which turned a 15-24 deficit at the start of the second period into a 37-33 lead which the Filipinos held on to until the final buzzer.

    Ritualo went 7-for-16 from rainbow country overall.

    “Our players did what they had to do and credit should be given them. They executed well and held their own in rebounding against Lebanon, who also probably didn’t have the legs yet after having arrived just a few days ago,” said coach Norman Black, who handled the Nationals in lieu of national coach Chot Reyes, who is currently in Taipei with the San Miguel Beermen in an Asian Invitational club tournament.

    But Reyes, in a text message he sent to his players through SMB-RP Team assistant coach Djalma Arnedo after the game, said he was so proud of the Nationals’ effort.

    “There is nothing that makes a coach prouder than to see his team flourish in his absence. It means the players and coaches understand what true teamwork is about. Congrats!” Reyes said in his text message.

    Ranidel de Ocampo and Mike Cortez also finished in double figures with their 12 and 10 points, respectively, and were two of five players who had five rebounds to lead SMB-RP in rebounding.

    Jimmy Alapag, who also had five boards, quarterbacked the team beautifully with seven assists, more than making up for his finishing only with three points.

    SMB-RP, which led by as much as 21 points, shot 37% from three-point range, making 14 of their 38 attempts, compared to just 22% (6 of 27) for the Lebanese. The Filipinos also had 26-19 edge in assists and only had 17 turnovers to Lebanon’s 24.

    Lebanon, which is using the two-game series to prepare for its upcoming stint in the World Basketball Championships in Saitama, Japan later this month, was led by the 16 points and 10 rebounds of Brian Feghali.

    The Lebanese, who also got strong efforts from big men Roy Samaha (15 points and eight rebounds) and Joseph Vogel (13 points and six rebounds), will have a chance to avenge the defeat when it takes on the Filipinos again this Wednesday at six in the evening at the Araneta Coliseum.

    With top player Fadi El Khatib scoring 10 of his 11 points in the first period alone, Lebanon raced to 18-8 and 20-10 leads in the first period before Ritualo woke up sparse crowd with his outside sniping in the second quarter.

    The Lebanese qualified for the world championships after finishing a strong second behind China in the Asian Basketball Confederation tourney last year. It is one of four Asian teams competing in the world championships, the other three being China, Qatar and host Japan.

    The Philippines failed to compete in that Asian qualifying tournament as a result of its still being suspended by FIBA. (FM)

    PBA dome? It’s about time
    By Nelson Beltran
    The Philippine Star 08/14/2006

    MACAU — The Philippine Basketball Association’s long-time cherished dream to have its own home could finally be a reality in two to three years.

    With giant corporations PLDT and San Miguel Corp. leading the bandwagon, PBA ball clubs have reached a consensus to pursue the ambitious project.

    "This has been the PBA’s dream for a long time. We did a lot of fire-fighting the last three years. We’ve corrected our mistakes and we have to start planting seeds," said PBA board chair Ricky Vargas.

    "I had an informal talk with (San Miguel’s) Robert Non. He said they also want the project to go now. San Miguel Corp. being receptive with the idea made me more excited about the project," Vargas added.

    There was actually no resolution passed about the matter in the PBA board meeting Saturday. But the governors gave their nod on their dream project in an informal discussion yesterday morning.

    There were reports PLDT chairman Manny Pangilinan and SMC big boss Danding Cojuangco had given their go-signal for the PBA to work on it. The two giant corporations could end up merging for this undertaking.

    "We estimated the amount of money we’ve spent in coliseum rentals the last three years. Buo na ang PBA coliseum kung dito namin dinala yung rental fees namin," said Non.

    At present, the PBA pays P200,000 for the use of the Araneta Coliseum per play date. Besides that, teams spend around P5,000 each almost everyday in gym rental for their practices.

    The idea is to put up a state-of-the-art complex, housing the PBA dome, possibly a practice gym, fitness center and stalls where PBA clubs and other business entities can market their products.

    Commissioner Noli Eala said the Quezon City government has offered to lease for 75 years its prime and sprawling property along Edsa corner Quezon Ave. Eala said they started talks with Quezon City Mayor Sonny Belmonte last year.

    It’s actually been the PBA’s dream for a long time. The PBA went as far as making a feasibility study under the chairmanship of Sta. Lucia governor Buddy Encarnado. The project, however, was shelved as the league confronted problems on Fil-sham and drugs issues.

    "I will pursue this. Hindi ako mapakali pag mayroon akong project," said Vargas.

    "My spirit was dampened when I heard news that SM Corp. intends to build a coliseum. But my spirit was lifted when I found out that San Miguel wants to have our own," Vargas added.

    Red Bull governor Tony Chua, who is to assume the board chairmanship next year, is willing to waive his turn just for Vargas to pursue and complete the project.

    "I’m willing to wait or even waive my turn for the chairmanship. Kahit three seasons mag-chair si Ricky hanggang hindi tapos ang PBA coliseum, okay sa akin," said Chua.

    Welcoat’s Raymund Yu pitched in his contribution by offering paints to be used in the entire complex.
