Columbian Dyip rolls past NLEX to sustain surprsing start in Commissioner’s Cup

ANTIPOLO – Columbian Dyip proved that it’s no one-hit wonder as it shocked NLEX, 123-103, to continue its surprising run early in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Saturday night at the Ynares Center. After making a great first impression with a 28-point win over Blackwater then contending before losing to Meralco, the Dyip showed their performances were not a fluke as they built and maintained a sizeable lead against a Road Warriors side that’s still adjusting to its import. CJ Aiken continued to make his case to be a keeper, while Reden Celda...

CJ Aiken unable to buy more job security as Columbian Dyip mulls Plan B

NOT even an improved offensive showing can provide import CJ Aiken with more job security with the Columbian Dyip in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Coming off a nine-point showing in their 126-98 rout of Blackwater last Sunday, Aiken poured in 21 points on 19 shots that came with 18 boards, four blocks, and one assist in 42 minutes in their 116-103 loss to Meralco on Wednesday night. But coach Ricky Dandan admitted their import’s fate is still hanging in the balance. “Of course he’s up for evaluation,” Dandan said. “We’re going to meet with...

Name switch brings change in fortune as Columbian Dyip cruises past Blackwater

COLUMBIAN Dyip displayed a change of game with its change of name as it stunned Blackwater, 126-98, for a rousing start to its PBA Commissioner’s Cup campaign on Sunday night at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum. The Dyip, formerly known as Kia Picanto, showed they’re a different team from the one that played in the all-Filipino conference as they built an early lead and pulled away in the second half to already match their win total last conference. Jeramy King proved his worth after getting picked up in the free-agent market as he dropped a...

He had half of his output in the second half when Dyip pulled away for good and registered the...

Kia gets another free agent, acquires former Rain or Shine player Jeramy King

KIA continues its roster build-up through the free-agent market.

KIA gets one player from GlobalPort – but nope, it’s not Terrence Romeo

ROOKIE Andreas Cahilig has left Globalport even ahead of disgruntled star Terrence Romeo. The Fil-Swiss center was acquired by the KIA Picanto from the unrestricted free agent list this week after spending the entire Philippine Cup on the Batang Pier’s inactive list. He was picked by Globalport in the second round (24th overall) of last year’s PBA Draft. The parting of ways came amid talk of an impending trade being worked out by the Batang Pier and the TnT Katropa involving the 25-year-old Romeo, who got involved in an infamous shouting...

Tubid finds consolation in giving his SMB ‘brothers’ a scare: ‘At least kinabahan sila’

RONAL Tubid insisted he had no extra motivation against San Miguel Beer, but was glad to at least give his former team a scare before Kia surrendered a 108-106 decision to the Beermen in their PBA Philippine Cup matchup on Friday night. Facing a team where he spent the last five years before getting traded last offseason, the 15-year veteran helped the Picanto embark on a furious fightback from 26 points down before seeing former teammate Marcio Lassiter rescue the Beermen. “It’s really nice to play with my brothers at San Miguel, parang...

Tubid disowns Instagram account selling shoes: ‘Hindi ako nagbebenta, namimigay pa nga ako’

IF Ronald Tubid would sell anything, it would be convincing everyone that he still has plenty of gas left in the tank. The 36-year-old cager, coming off a vintage performance of 22 points, highlighted by six three-pointers, eight boards, and one block in 30 minutes off the bench in Kia’s 95-76 loss to Blackwater in the PBA Philippine Cup, disowned a certain fake Instagram account under his name that’s selling shoes. “Mga friends ko, nag-text sa akin kung akin ba yun. Sabi ko, hindi, pare, hindi ako nagbebenta ng shoes o jersey. Namimigay pa...

Mark Yee insists no intention to hurt Ryan Reyes: ‘Umarte lang eh’

MARK Yee insisted there was no intention to hurt Ryan Reyes in a play that didn’t escape the attention of some PBA players in Kia’s 90-85 loss to TNT KaTropa in the PBA Philippine Cup on Wednesday night. The former teammates got entangled in a rebound battle in the third quarter, with Yee appearing to lock Reyes’ elbow below his armpit that left the TNT veteran down in pain. Some players, commenting on social media, immediately called Yee’s action a ‘dirty play,’ but the Kia enforcer was quick to make a denial. “Wala...
