Cardel tackles tough job in wake of Dandan resignation from Dyip

JOHNEDEL Cardel is not one to back down from challenges. The former PBA player and national team member said he’s ready to take on the job as new head coach of Columbian Dyip despite being named to the post on short notice following the resignation of Ricky Dandan. “It’s a tough job but I’m ready to take on the challenge,” said Cardel a few moments after being promoted from deputy to head coach of Columbian. Cardel, who’s nursing cough and colds, met with team board of governor Bobby Rosales Thursday noon...

John Fields thrilled to see Columbian Dyip rolling as locals finally get on board

JOHN Fields believes that Columbian Dyip is a force to be reckoned with for as long as his local teammates are up to the task. With the way they performed on Sunday night, nobody can really disagree with him. The Dyip kept themselves in the hunt for just their second PBA playoff appearance in franchise history after their 115-107 win over the Phoenix Fuelmasters in the Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Fields finished with 29 points and 26 rebounds and got a lot of help from five locals in double-digits as the Dyip moved...

Columbian Dyip gives PBA playoff hopes a timely boost as Phoenix runs out of gas

COLUMBIAN Dyip’s playoff bid in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup got a shot in the arm after it ended a three-game slump at the expense of Phoenix, 115-107, on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Workhorse John Fields finally got the support he needed, with five locals reaching double digits and making most of their damage in the fourth quarter when Phoenix started to run out of gas. Eric Camson set the tone for the Dyip in the final period, draining six consecutive points to open the quarter before Glen Khobuntin and Jeremy King finished...

Fields plays down verbal spat, but Ross admits trash talk ‘gets my blood flowing’

CHRIS Ross and John Fields figured in a heated verbal exchange in San Miguel’s 129-117 win over Columbian Dyip on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The two were seen trash-talking for pretty much the entire second half and there was no question on who had the final word in the war of words. Right after the altercation near the end of the third quarter which resulted in technical fouls for both players, Fields scored just two points the rest of the way, allowing the defending champions to break the game wide open on the way to a 129-117...

Ricky Dandan reminds Columbian Dyip that defense is best offense after lopsided loss to Magnolia

COLUMBIAN coach Ricky Dandan rued the lack of defense the Dyip played in their lopsided loss to Magnolia in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Wednesday. The Dyip trailed by as many as 38 points and lost to the Hotshots, 126-101, to drop to a 3-3 win-loss record. It was second largest margin the Dyip allowed after giving up 134 points against Alaska on May 4. Dandan said his team wasn’t able to play a defensive game after allowing the Hotshots to shoot 68 percent from the field in the first half. “They must realize, our team has to realize that we...

Injuries to its bigs hurting Dyip’s ability to contend

Columbian Dyip has been one of the biggest surprises in the on-going 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup, staying in step with the field with their even 3-3 slate. But as impressive as their guards are, their usually active inside presence seem to have disappeared, putting bulk of the load on the shoulders of import Bailey John Fields. Wondering why? “May mga players kaming injured eh,” answered Jackson Corpuz. “Yun din ang dahilan kaya hindi ako medyo maka-todo sa laro. Gusto ko man, medyo limitado din yung nagagawa...

Columbian Dyip stuns erstwhile unbeaten Rain or Shine to sustain surprising start

COLUMBIAN Dyip proved they’re not a fluke as they stunned Rain or Shine, 104-96, to sustain its surprising run in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Wednesday night at the Mall of Asia Arena. Rediscovering their touch after a 31-point drubbing at the hands of Alaska, the Dyip stayed toe-to-toe against the Elasto Painters throughout the game before proving steadier down the stretch to get back on the winning track and improve to 3-2. Rashawn Mccarthy regained his shooting to lead the locals, while John Fields continued to provide the offense with...

Columbian Dyip have a Fields day against ROS as import finally settles down

EYEBROWS were raised when Columbian Dyip replaced import CJ Aiken for John Fields right after a bright start to the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. But after a rough debut for Fields in a 134-103 loss to Alaska, the veteran journeyman is starting to prove that he’s the right man for the job for the struggling franchise. Fields finished with 34 points on an efficient 13-of-17 shooting to go along 11 rebounds, five assists, a steal and a shot block as he claimed his first win in the PBA following their 104-96 win over Rain or Shine on Wednesday at the...

Dyip rookie Jonjon Gabriel filled with regret as ‘frustration’ led to hit on Abueva

JONJON Gabriel regretted hitting Calvin Abueva in the face that cut short his already limited playing time for Columbian Dyip in the team’s 134-103 loss to Alaska in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Friday night. In his conference debut, the 11th overall pick in the last PBA draft made a good first impression by throwing down a dunk and scoring a layup in his first few possessions after coming in halfway through the third quarter. But his exposure was abruptly cut short when he hit a driving Abueva in the face, resulting in a flagrant foul 1 and...

Columbian Dyip bring in new import Fields, let go of Aiken despite winning record

ANTIPOLO CiTY – Not even a winning record could save the job of CJ Aiken at Columbian Dyip. Aiken was given the boot by the team in favor of Euro League veteran John Bailey Fields III despite going 2-1 (win-loss) in the three games he played for the Dyip in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. The team said ‘family issue’ on the part of Aiken prompted the Dyip to look for a replacement. But as early as Aiken’s first game with Columbian, coach Ricky Dandan already admitted the jury was still out on the import. Fields, 30, is already in the...
