FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’ Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo “Overall, it was a good tournament for us,” he said. “Not only did we leave a good impression (to the fans and foes) here considering that this team has been together for just three weeks. It speaks well of the program.“Unfortunately, it could have ended better for us.”Gilas lost to Canada, South Korea and Lithuania, but those were games that the players impressed Reyes the most.“Against Korea, we shot poorly but defended very well,” Reyes said. “It was the same thing against Canada and Lithuania. I was very happy with (the defensive effort the players showed in) those games.”Christian Standhardinger was the third and plast player in twin digits for Gilas with 13 as Reyes opted to play Jio Jalalon just over 13 minutes.ADVERTISEMENT The team planes back to Manila on Monday morning after which Reyes meets with fellow coaches and the leadership of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas to come up with the final 12-man roster for the Fiba Asia Championship slated in Lebanon starting August 8.Members of the team that played the Jones Cup, most of them anyway, are already slated to see action in Kuala Lumpur where the country shoots for an 18th gold medal.

Yesterday’s results Innswood 4 Kingston Technical 0 Spanish Town 0 Excelsior 1 Jonathan Grant 1 Vauxhall 0 Bridgeport 1 Wolmer’s 2 St George’s College vs Denham Town Today’s game Cumberland High, led by a second-half hat-trick by Leonard James, came from two goals down to score a shock 3-2 victory over Dunoon High in an ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup Group E game at Rockfort Sports Club field yesterday. The win gave Cumberland their first points of the 2015 competition. They had lost their previous eight matches. James fired home his goals in the 51st, 87th, and 90th minutes. Dunoon went 2-0 up courtesy of Shackel Campbell (14th) and substitute Kashief Gordon (42nd). Dunoon came into the game confident of victory against lowly Cumberland but remained on 10 points with two games remaining. They still have a mathematical chance of advancing to the next round. James was happy that he was able to score all the goals in his team’s first win of the season. “It’s a pleasure to score for the team. They know I am capable, and I went out there and executed. The coach (Wayne Fraser) told me how to play and I followed his instructions,” James, a 15 year-old in his second year in the Manning Cup, told The Gleaner. Fraser added: “The feeling is great! First, thank the Lord for this win today! Well, our senior players are just coming back into the team, so we have been playing better.” On the other hand, coach of Dunoon Gregory Hall was obviously disappointed that his team gave the game away in the dying moments. “We have so many things to work on,” Hall said. “We led comfortably and then lost the game, but they are youngsters, so I won’t come down hard on them. We remain optimistic (of advancing), with two games remaining in the round,” added Hall, a former Dunoon goalkeeper.
