In a draft filled with big names (June Mar Fajardo, Calvin Abueva, Chris Tiu, Cliff Hodge, and Chris Ellis among others), AJ Mandani and Jason Deutchman were just a couple of intriguing Fil-foreigners.

Deutchman, a 66 product of the San Diego State Aztec Warriors, was chosen by Global Port as the last pick of the first round, while Mandani, a 511 guard out of the Missouri S&T Joe Miners program, was chosen in the second round behind Yousef Taha, Dave Marcelo, and Jewel Ponferrada.

Before their game against the Meralco Bolts, Deutchman and Mandani averaged a combined 14.0ppg, 6.0rpg, 3.7apg, 1.0spg, and 1.0bpg in Global Ports first three games, which were all losses. Against the Bolts, Jason and AJ paired up for 32 points, 16 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. Wow. Big diff right there.

With Gary David momentarily out, fellow rookie Vic Manuel a little inconsistent, and the enigmatic Rabeh Al-Hussaini remaining, well, enigmatic, the Batang Piers fortunes might rest on how well both Deutchman and Mandani can step up and produce.

As the tourney goes on, I have no doubt David and Willie Miller will still be the focal points of Global Ports play, but Im also sure Coach Glenn Capacio wouldnt mind seeing some of his young guns flash fine form.

Game Recaps:
GLOBAL PORT BATANG PIER over MERALCO BOLTS, 105-104

Veteran Willie Miller had 33 points and 11 rebounds in GlobalPorts come-from-behind 105-104 victory over the Meralco Bolts Wednesday at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.

It was the first PBA victory for the franchise for the Batang Pier, who also relied on a strong finishing kick from rookies Jason Deutchman and AJ Mandani.

Akala ko hindi pa aabot ngayon, said GlobalPort rookie coach Glenn Capacio.

Siguro ako among the coaches ang ni-ni-nerbiyos dahil Im searching for my first win. Grabe mga teams sa PBA. Halos lahat malalakas. Mahirap yung first win, pero malaking bagay ito medyo down mag-iiba pakiramdam ng mga players.

Miller was a steady presence all game long, but it was rookies Deutchman and Mandani who delivered the most crucial baskets.

Deutchman scored 20 points, including three key three-pointers in the fourth quarter. His last three-pointer gave GlobalPort the lead for good, 100-99, with 1:13 left.

In the Batang Piers next offensive play, it was Mandani who rose to the challenge, completing a three-point play for a 103-99 tally.

After two missed attempts by Sunday Salvacion from beyond the arc, Ronjay Buenafe finally buried a three-pointer to put the Bolts within striking distance.

Rabeh Al-Hussaini, who scored 17 points, made two free throws for the Batang Pier, giving them a three-point lead with five seconds left.

Without a timeout left, Sol Mercado rushed to the other end, but surprisingly went coast-to-coast for a layup instead of a three-pointer to tie the game.

GLO 105- Miller 33, Deutchman 20, Al-Hussaini 17, Mandani 12, Manuel 6, Guevarra 6, Yee 5, Vanlandingham 4, Salvador 2, Lingganay 0, Cruz 0, Antonio 0
MER 104- Mercado 30, Buenafe 30, Hodge 15, Reyes 7, Nabong 6, Hugnatan 5, Artadi 4, Salvacion 3, Belencion 2, Cardona 2, Bulawan 0, Borboran 0, Sharma 0.
QS: 25-25, 52-48, 76-87, 105-104

TALK N TEXT TROPANG TEXTERS over AIR21 EXPRESS, 96-89

Be it in the PBA or the UAAP, Norman Black wants to continue his winning reputation.

The multi-titled coach notched his first official win as coach of the Talk N Text Tropang Texters, leading his team to a 96-89 triumph over the Air 21 Express on Wednesday night at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Black coached the team in their 108-104 win over GlobalPort just one day after leading the Ateneo Blue Eagles to its fifth consecutive UAAP championship but was unable to inform the PBA in time to be officially named head coach.

This was his first official game as coach of the Tropang Texters.

The win enabled the Tropang Texters to pick up their third win in as many games and climb into the solo lead in the team standings.

We played much better in the second half. We gave up too much in the post on KG (Canaleta) and (Bitoy) Omolon in the first half. We switched bigger players on them, said Black.

Ranidel de Ocampo finished with 19 points while Jimmy Alapag, who achieved a milestone by becoming the latest player to make at least 1,000 three-point shots, added 16 points on 4-for-6 shooting from beyond the arc.

Black admitted he tried to get out of their structured offense to get their latest victory.

Our offense is still a work in progress. But Im satisfied with the way we played defense, particularly in the second half. We implemented a free flowing offense, he added.

TNT 96- De Ocampo 19, Alapag 16, Castro 14, Williams 14, Reyes 9, Fonacier 8, Dillinger 6, Ferriols 4, Carey 3, Peek 3, Gamalinda 0
A21 89- Canaleta 21, Wilson 18, Arboleda 14, Omolon 10, Isip 8, Baclao 7, Ritualo 5, Atkins 2, Sena 2, Escobal 2, Taha 0
QS: 20-28, 45-50, 76-67, 96-89

Blatche expected to return to the Philippines and lead them at Asian Qualifiers - 3 days ago
Naturalized center Andray Blatche is set to arrive soon to strengthen the Philippines national team that will play at the Asian Qualifiers. Ever since first playing for Gilas Pilipinas at the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2014, the 2.11m Blatche has been a major factor in the Philippines' rise in the Asian and World basketball stages. He gives the team much needed size and versatility, especially against other squads that may have a lot of size and physicality. National team head coach Chot...   [read more]
