Gilas storm back to beat Syria, enter FIBA-Asia Champions Cup semis

Pilipinas-Smart Gilas overcame a 15-point deficit in the second quarter to defeat Al Jala’a-Syria, 85-80, Friday night to enter the semifinals of the 2011 FIBA Asia Champions Cup at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

The Nationals had a sluggish start in the second quarter but Marcus Douthit, JV Casio and Japeth Aguilar provided the spark to set up a date with defending champion Mahram-Iran in the Final Four Saturday at 6 p.m.

Gilas coach Rajko Toroman takes another tough test against Iran, which has a seven-footer in Cheikh Samb and a prolific scorer in Chris Williams.

"This is a better team than the national team of Iran," said Toroman. “We can’t play differently. We will still try to attack, use the bench more and maybe put some pressure on them."

Douthit tallied 26 points and 12 rebounds, Casio shot 4-of-9 from rainbow country to finish with 22 markers and a team-high nine assists.

Aguilar scored 12 including the go-ahead basket in the third quarter as Gilas took the lead, which they never relinquished.

Toroman said he was happy that the Nationals survived another acid test following a hard-earned win against ASU-Jordan on Wednesday in the preliminaries.

"Syria is not a bad team. To beat them especially after how we started the game with nobody playing well is good for us," said Toroman.

Samaki Walker, a member of the 2002 NBA champions Los Angeles Lakers, torched the Nationals in the second quarter leading led a 13-0 run as the Syrians erected a 35-20 advantage.

The Nationals, however, slowly cut the deficit before finally going ahead for the first time, 56-55, on an Aguilar three-point play with one minute and 37 seconds left in the third. A Casio three-pointer and a Douthit slam ended the third for a 61-57 edge.

Games Saturday
(PhilSports Arena)

2 pm Al Ittihad-Saudi Arabia vs Al Jala'-Syria (for 5th to 8th)

4 pm Duhok-Iraq vs ASU-Jordan (for 5th to 8th)

6 pm – Mahram-Iran vs Smart Gilas-Philippines (semis)

8 pm – Al Riyadi-Lebanon vs Al Rayyan-Qatar (semis)
After the Syrians moved within two, 69-67, the Nationals pulled away for good with a 9-3 finish for a 78-70 count. Mac Baracael capped off that run with a jumper, 1:55 left in the game.

Syria answered with a 10-5 run to threaten late in the game with Jamaal Miller making two free throws to cut Gilas’ lead to three, 83-80, but Al Jala’a failed to foul any Gilas player that led to a Douthit jam that secured the win for the Nationals.

Walker described Gilas as a great team. "We knew that this is an outstanding team. This is a type of team that runs for 48 minutes so you really have to mentally prepare yourself to run. We started strong but they kept pushing which is what good teams do."

Walker had 25 points and eight rebounds while Michael Mandaly, who also led Syria in the early goings, had 17 markers.

Mandaly had 11 points in the first quarter alone opening the game with back-to-back baskets but was a non-factor in the second half after being saddled with four fouls.

The Syrians were also plagued with fouls with Marcelle Yaqqub fouling out late in the third quarter. Sari Papazian and Abboud Shakkour also fouled out.

#GoGilas trends on Twitter

The support of the Filipino people to Gilas showed online after it became the third trending topic on microblogging site Twitter.

It was actually Charles Tiu, brother of Gilas player Chris, who started it off.

"Here at ultra scouting the other teams early for our future games. I wonder if we could make #gogilas a trending topic later! Watcha think?", Charles Tiu tweeted. – Reuben Terrado, JVP, GMA News

Pilipinas-Smart Gilas 85 —
Douthit 26, Casio 22, Aguilar 12, Baracael 6, Lutz 6, Hontiveros 5, Tiu 5, Lassiter 2, Taulava 1, Barroca 0.

Al Jala'a-Syria 80 — Walker 25, Mandaly 17, Miller 13, Deeb 11, Papazian 7, Yaqqub 4, Gorges 2, Haj Ishak 1, Yakoub 0.

Quarter scores: 20-22, 34-41, 61-57, 85-80.

A Repost From Ingrid Villafuerte and Charlotte Catapang of YES! Magazine

Jennylyn Mercado  opens up about her difficult childhood, her sad romances, and her sudden breakup with Dennis Trillo in a tell-all  interview with <span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong>YES!</strong></span>

Jennylyn Mercado opens up about her difficult childhood, her sad romances, and her sudden breakup with Dennis Trillo in a tell-all interview with YES!

Ingrid Villafuerte and Charlotte Catapang


When news broke out last March 25 that Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo had called it quits, issues such as the immaturity of Jen and the jealous streak of Dennis surfaced.

But both Jennylyn and Dennis shied away from the media, leaving the public to wonder what was behind the abrupt breakup of their nearly one-year relationship.

This June, Jen finally breaks her silence in a 25-page tell-all interview with YES! magazine.

Jennylyn tells YES! about how she and Dennis became an item, explaining how she initially had doubts about entering into a relationship with him but that she fell in love with him just the same.

"When we started, parang hindi ako gano'n ka-confident sa kanya...parang may doubt, kasi nga yung image niya na nagpapalit ng babae... parang natatakot ako kasi 'yon 'yong image na nabuo sa isip ko," she says.

But she says Dennis was persistent about wooing her.

The two shared a love for biking, found themselves getting to know each other in Bacolod, grew closer while taping GMA-7's afternoon series Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak, and eventually got together after a Holy Week trip to Hong Kong.

"Talagang maganda po yung takbo ng relationship," Jen says, saying Dennis was very attentive and caring when she was sick, and that the presence of Patrick Garcia, the actor she had a lovechild with, was never an issue with Dennis.

But on the night of March 5, or a little over a month from their first anniversary, the couple broke up.

Jennylyn tells YES! the story of what happened that fateful night—how a small, petty fight escalated to a full-blown screaming match punctuated with curses and hurtful words.

"Sa sobrang gulat ko doon sa mga sinabi niya sa 'kin, umakyat talaga 'yong dugo ko sa ulo. Talagang nag-init 'yong ulo ko. Talagang nasampal ko siya," Jennylyn admits.

But this was nothing to how Dennis retaliated, Jennylyn says, as she demonstrates how Dennis allegedly kept her on a headlock while dragging her across his living room.

"Dala-dala niya po ako... papunta doon sa may sliding glass door niya... 'Tapos, hinagis niya po ako pababa. Patapon po, e. Kaya bumagsak po ako. Nalaglag po ako sa sahig. Medyo masama 'yong bagsak ko, kasi parang balakang 'yong bumagsak," she recounts.

Until now, Jen admits that she hasn't recovered from the hurtful words Dennis hurled at her. "Hindi maganda 'yong mga sinabi niya sa akin. Sobrang minaliit niya ako, para akong walang kwenta, winasak niya pagkatao ko," she says.

The tell-all interview also includes accounts of Jennylyn's childhood, when not quite four years old, she was physically beaten by her mother's partner. Photographs of Jen taken during this period are published to prove her story.

In the interview, Jen also goes back to her high school romances and her past relationship with Mark Herras and with Patrick.

Maltese vote yes to divorce, PH to be only country in the world with no divorce

( Citizens of the Catholic Mediterranean state of Malta have voted in favor of legalizing divorce, announced Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzo on Sunday, May 29, reports ABS-CBN News. Malta is the only other country apart from the Philippines that bans divorce. It is also the last European country where divorce is considered illegal.

On Saturday, 306,000 of mostly Catholic voters were asked in a non-binding referendum whether the parliament should introduce a divorce law after four years of separation. Legal separation, though widespread in Europe, presents many challenges in re-marrying, reports the article.

Gonzi, who campaigned against divorce, said, "This is not the result I wished for, but the will of the people has to be respected and the parliament should enact a law for the introduction of divorce." He added it was now up to the parliament to legalize the dissolution of marriage.

Pro-divorce leader of the opposition Labor party, Joseph Muscat said in The Guardian that a New Malta had been born. According to the article, Muscat is confident that the anti-divorce law would not thwart the will of the people. The Roman Catholic Church, meanwhile, did not participate in Malta's referendum. However, Malta Archbishop Paul Cremona warned churchgoers that their decision was a choice between building and destroying family values.
