October 21, 2014

New Barako Bull head coach Koy Banal. Sports5 file/Pranz Kaeno BillonesLongtime PBA assistant coach Koy Banal finally gets a chance to fulfill his dream as he takes over the head coaching position at Barako Bull a few days before his team makes its season debut in the Philippine Cup.

It’s been a long road for Banal, a multi-titled coach in the collegiate ranks, and he spoke to about his feelings on his recent appointment after choosing to remain mum for the past few days.

“I chose to be quiet because that’s how I respect coach Siot (Tanquincen),” Banal said in a telephone interview on Monday. “Right now, I’ve been running practices the past two days.”

He admitted feeling some nerves heading into the Energy Cola’s first game, especially with the limited preparation they have under Banal....

40th PBA season unfolds today

October 19, 2014

PACQUIAO will enter unchartered territory as he coaches and plays for KIA Motors against Blackwater Elite in the two teams’ PBA debut EDWIN BACASMASBOCAUE, Bulacan — Manny Pacquiao will step into a huge venue packed with fans once again. But this time around, Michael Buffer won’t be the one doing the introductions, he won’t be wearing boxing gloves  and Freddie Roach will not be in his corner.

Today, Pacquiao, the only eight-division world champion and arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter ever, will have his ankles, and not his hands, taped. And probably for the first time in his life as a professional athlete, he won’t even be the main attraction.

Pacquiao will enter unchartered territory as he coaches and plays for KIA Motors when it makes its PBA debut as the league ushers in its 40th Season with the Philippine Cup eliminations with two games to follow after lavis opening rites at the 50,000-seat Philippine Arena here....

The Road Warriors are seeking to capitalize on the momentum of last season’s campaign, which saw the Express evolve from whipping boys to decent contenders. With a coaching change, an ageless Asi Taulava leading a crew whose chemistry has been tried and tested, better figures on the win column won’t be much of an issue.
