Gilas defeats Russia in Jones Cup

Gilas Pilipinas came back strong from a loss to South Korea Monday night, standing its ground in a rugged duel with Russia's Spartak-Primorye to pull off an 85-71 win in the 2015 Jones Cup at the Xinchuang Gymnasium inTaipei.

The Filipinos pummeled the Russians in the second half, leading by as many as 19 points, 84-65, before completing the win that sent Gilas back in contention in the nine-team, eight-nation tourney.

Gilas put up a solid fight together, beating out Spartak-Primorye in a match marred by a near free-for-all just at the start of the game.

NOPSSCEA games to
start September 19

Sports competition in all levels of NOPSSCEA Season 35 will start on September 19, sports committee interim manager Roger Banzuela said yesterday.

Unlike in the previous years when a double-header in men's basketball usher the NOPSSEA season right after the opening program, Banzuela said it can not be done on September 7 as the screening committee has yet to evaluate the athletes' credentials.

In yesterday's meeting with the coaches, team managers and sports directors of the participating schools, Banzuela said they all agreed on the September 19 schedule for the start of the competition.

Manila to host billiards' King Cup

After the historic women's battle for the best women billiards players in the world last year comes the chance for the men to do theirs in the world pool.

US based Kings Cup executive producer Charlie Williams announced that for the first time, men's champions of Europe and USA will play against the champions of Asia on Nov.19 to 21 at Resorts World Manila.

"We are thrilled to have these world champions from around the globe for the inaugural Kings Cup," said Stephen Reilly, chief operating officer, Resorts World Manila.
