Tigers invade Basketball Crazy

VIC HAPIN ALLAN TAULE AND NOY AFRICA is the official media portal of all hardcore basketball fans. The nice thing about this is that basketball fans from all ages troop to this site to know the latest in basketball.  The guests tonight are noted followers of Gameface and they shared their insights with regards to the Ateneo and La Salle title fight and the final four opponent of San Beda.

Honestly, what they all said were all crap and they were trying to be nice with each other. Bottomline the best thing  they said was that  the Ateneo, as Allan Taule said should exploit its frontline and defend well against Casio and Maierhofer for the Blue Eagles to prevail. On the other hand, Vic Hapin said that the Green Archers should contain the frontline of Ateneo and more importantly just keep the game close so that who knows in the last few minutes they can make a run that will be enough for them to win the game.

Noy Africa for his part said if there is a way that they can choose a finals opponent they would want JRU because of the color that brewed between Ariel Vanguardia and Coach Frankie Lim in one of the games before.  Good luck to Ateneo, De La Salle and San Beda…STI will see you in the Champion’s league. Hahaha!


 I like the way Dylan Ababou smiles. There is something in his smile that makes everyone at ease with him. He is nice and he shared a lot with regards to the way he plays and how he wants to play out his last year with the Growling Tigers.  Chester on the other hand has just finished his final year with the Tigers which means he will be joining old hands like Jervy Cruz, Japs Cuan, Francis Allera and  Mark Canlas who all finished their last year of eligibility.

He said he would want to try his luck with the PBL this year since the UST Team will be sponsored by San Mig coffee.  To man the fort with Dylan, the Tigers still have Khasim Mirza, Rookies Jeric Fortuna, Clark Bautista, Christopher Camus, Carlos Fenequito, Allen Maliksi and Emilian Vargas and most probably others from Team B.  The team will fight but the big blow is the inside presence of Jervy Cruz who delivers double doubles night in and night out.  Dylan, who was once a Burlington Youth Campaigner will definitely discover things agains their team and hopefully translate it to something positive.

Dylan is quite in a bind since he played for Harbour Centre and the Tigers will be bannering the San Mig Coffee team. On the other hand he answered shyly when he was asked if he wants to jump to the PBA rightaway, he said he is quite not yet that ready. Both of them have made good ties with their NU counterparts, Edwin Asoro and Jonathan Jhanke plus Rico Maierhofer. They really enjoyed playing for the Portmasters. Dylan will be back next year and to help him lead the team he is reading books about leadership just so he can lead his team next year.
