National U’s Jay-J Alejando. INQUIRER.net FILE PHOTO/TRISTAN TAMAYOJ-Jay Alejandro cashed in on his fastbreak with 16.5 seconds to spare to lift National University to an 87-85 win over the gritty Emilio Aguinaldo College in the 2017 Filoil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.The Bulldogs tracked down Francis Munsayac’s three-point miss late which led to Alejandro skying in for the game-winning lay-up over the diminutive guard late.ADVERTISEMENT The Generals still had their chances in the clutch, but Juju Bautista missed two chances from point-blank as time expired for EAC.Despite the victory, coach Jamike Jarin was far from satisfied with the way NU played.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

With the way we played, we didn’t deserve to win,” he said. “The reason why the result went to our side is (EAC) got tired. If it was a five-quarter game, we would have won because they would just tire out.”Alejandro paced the Bulldogs with 25 points on a 5-of-8 shooting from threes, to go with nine rebounds, and four assists. Matt Salem added 20 markers and seven boards, while Senegalese big man Issa Gaye had eight points and seven rebounds before fouling out in the fourth quarter.EAC missed the services of Sidney Onwubere, who suffered a sprained right ankle in the second quarter.Jerome Garcia topped the Generals with 16 points, four rebounds, and three steals, while Hamadou Laminou had a double-double of 15 markers, 18 boards, and six blocks in the loss.The Scores:NU 87 – Alejandro 25, Salem 20, Gaye 8, Rangel 8, Yu 6, Abatayo 5, Diputado 4, Galvelo 3, Joson 2, Flores 2, Mosqueda 2, Lastimosa 2, Bartlett 0, Morido 0, Cauilan 0, Go 0, Aquino 0, Sistoza 0.ADVERTISEMENT Ai-Ai delas Alas on Jiro Manio: ‘Sana pinahalagahan niya ang naitulong ko’ Palace: Crisis over ABC-CBN franchise unlikely Bulacan town gears up for biggest cookie jar UST’s Subido to miss UAAP Season 80 For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

MONTE CARLO, Monaco: COMING INTO the Monaco Diamond League ranked third gave Kimberly Williams all the motivation she needed to pit her skills against the series competition leaders. The odds were always stacked in the favour of the eventual winner Colombian Caterine Ibarguen and second placed finisher Venezuelan Yulimar Rojas who jumped 14.86 and 14.83m respectively, both athletes demonstrating scintillating form this year. However, with no athletes jumping anywhere near their personal bests this season there was always a chance for the 28-year-old Jamaican to make inroads on the coveted diamond presented to the overall winner of the series. Talking to The Gleaner about her third place finish with a season best jump of 14.54m, Williams said she felt she was right where she needed to be. “Today shows that I am moving in the right direction. Each meet, you want to get better and better. “In Rabat I jumped 14.31m and to see 14.54m is really close to my PB, so obviously I am in the right place going into World’s so I am just trying to stay healthy because that is always my problem. So far my heel is feeling better so that’s good and I’m just looking forward to Worlds in the next coming weeks.”
“So we have a lot to offer the world, and the world is interested. The only thing holding us back is our fears and incapacities. We are limited by our fears, and we just have to believe in ourselves and I believe in it 100 per cent,” he said. The controversial football aficionado says that his accom-plishments with Phoenix Academy is proof that he can advance Jamaica’s football, and he argues that being a good president does not mean that one has to be a good administrator. “A president leads from the front and delegates to those who are strong in administration. The president goes out and is the face and negotiates opportunities, contracts, and games for international funding, sponsorship, marketing, and placement of players. The JFF can take a more active role in player placement. “So captain Burrell was no administrator. He had good administrators to support him. But Craig Butler brings to the table of JFF what he accomplished with Phoenix. The contacts, links overseas, and from a decision-making perspective to deliver the best solutions,” he continued. Founder of the Phoenix All Stars Football Academy Craig Butler has hit back at those who argue that he would better serve Jamaican football as a youth development coordinator rather than as president. Butler, who has vowed to seek local football’s top job, said a president should lead from the front and chart the way forward, and he is convinced that he has the vision to make Jamaica a world power in football and has called on Jamaicans to support him and ‘believe’. “If I do not become Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) president, I will serve my country in whatever capacity I can. But Jamaica needs the full extent of what I bring, and it would have to be as JFF president,” he said. “The vision is to make Jamaica a world power. To have Jamaican players earning a great deal of money to send back to their communities and families. To have a national team that consistently gets in the top four of the World Cup. To generate income through high-level games with big clubs, set up tournaments to encourage sport tourism and a new income stream by developing our coaches. Influential internationally Good administrator Butler insists that drastic changes are needed to advance Jamaica’s football and that he is the man for the job. “A lot of changes and support are needed. I will be more influential internationally with the authority of president behind me. And the JFF needs to be self-sufficient,” he said. Since returning to the island last weekend, Butler has been busy trying to rally support for his presidential ambitions, and he declared that things are looking good for him so far. “I have the support from several (parish presidents) already, and I am soliciting heavily from the rest, and I believe if they genuinely want the best for Jamaica’s football, they will support me,” he said.
PARIS, France (AP): Neymar was in unstoppable form on his home debut for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), with the Brazil star scoring twice and playing a role in the other four goals as PSG routed Toulouse 6-2 to move to top of the French league yesterday. Neymar saved the best for last, bringing the Parc des Princes crowd to its feet with an astonishing solo goal in injury time. He dribbled through a forest of bewildered defenders, changing direction and rolling the ball off his foot left and right in an almost balletic display of skill and balance, before calmly stroking the ball home as if at a training session. Neymar milked the applause with even Toulouse’s players lining up to shake his hand. “The crowd was fantastic and it was a great atmosphere,” Neymar said on Canal Plus television through a translator after the game. PSG leads defending champions Monaco and Saint-Etienne on goal difference, with all on nine points after three games. Neymar, who joined from Barcelona for a world-record €222 million (US$262 million), netted on his debut last weekend in a 3-0 win at Guingamp. Yesterday, he equalised for PSG and set up the second for midfielder Adrien Rabiot, and then won a penalty that striker Edinson Cavani struck home in the 75th to make it 3-1. PSG was already down to 10 men by this point, after Marco Verratti’s sending off. Center half Christopher Jullien exposed some poor marking to give Toulouse a lifeline three minutes later, scoring with a thumping header for 3-2. But substitute Javier Pastore produced a sublime, curling shot from 25m that dipped into the top right corner in the 82nd. It was Neymar’s quick pass from the left that released Angel Di Maria to pick out Pastore lurking near the penalty area. Two minutes later, Neymar whipped over a clever corner that left back Layvin Kurzawa met with a spectacular scissor kick. Neymar has slotted into PSG’s team seamlessly although that is to be expected, given the price tag.
MADRID (AP): Ousmane Dembele is about to step into the spotlight. The 20-year-old France striker signed by Barcelona to replace Neymar is expected to make his debut in the Catalan derby against Espanyol this weekend, getting the first chance to prove his worth after being involved in the second-biggest transfer in football history behind the Brazilian’s move to Paris Saint-Germain. “Will he be able to score on Saturday?” Barcelona posted on his website, noting that Dembele could join a list of players who debuted with goals in their Spanish league debut at the Camp Nou, including Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, Ronaldinho, Romario, and Rivaldo. Barcelona had already mentioned Dembele when listing details about the debut of its “greatest foreign signings,” including Ronaldo, Samuel Eto’o, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Neymar. The club brought in Dembele after losing Neymar in the world-record transfer to Paris Saint-Germain in the off season. It called the youngster “one of the most promising young stars in European football,” a player with a “golden future.”
MADRID, Spain (AP): Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice on his return as Real Madrid began their quest for a third straight Champions League title by beating Cypriot club APOEL 3-0 yesterday. Ronaldo scored in each half in his first match since being suspended for shoving a referee in the Spanish Super Cup final last month. He’s still suspended for one more match of his five-game suspension, but was cleared to play in European competition. Sergio Ramos scored the third goal at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where Madrid have not lost a group-stage game in almost eight years. The Spanish powerhouse has won 12 of their last 13 Champions League games at the Bernabeu. Tottenham defeated Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in the other Group H match. It didn’t take long for Ronaldo to make a difference. In the 12th minute, he scored with an angled shot from near the far post after a low cross by Gareth Bale. His second in the 51st was a penalty kick after a handball was called inside the area. Ronaldo has the most successful penalty-kick goals in Champions League history, with 12, one more than Lionel Messi. Ronaldo also struck the crossbar, and had two goals disallowed for offside. Madrid’s third goal came in the 61st when Ramos flicked the ball into the net while with his back to the goal and with a defender closely marking him. APOEL were eliminated by Madrid when they made a surprising run to the quarter finals in 2012. The Cyprus team has not won any of their 12 away matches in the Champions League, losing the last six in row.
The coach said they came into the game as underdogs and praised his players for what he described as a gutsy performance. “We are orphans as the other teams have mothers and fathers,” Cohen said, alluding to the other three teams’ financial support. “We will take it one game at a time because everyone competing in the play-off are champions, so we respect the other teams.” “Our next game is away, so the focus is now on that one. We missed some chances, especially in the second half, but I am pleased, 100 per cent, with the fighting spirit of the team today,” Cohen shared. Mount Pleasant’s head coach, Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis, said it was a hard loss due to mistakes at the back. “It was a tough loss. Nobody wants to lose their opening game, but it was on the road, so we will go back home and get ready for the next game,” Davis, a former national senior team striker, said. “We gave up two silly goals quickly after taking the lead and never recovered from that. We could not find any momentum, and it became difficult. We kept on making errors, and it cost us the whole game. We will just have to work on that for the next game,” he added. GUTSY PERFORMANCE Dunbeholden FC demonstrated resilience when they had a come-from-behind 2-1 win against the highly fancied Mount Pleasant Football Academy in the Magnum/Charley’s JB/Jamaica Football Federation promotion play-off series opening round at the Dunbeholden Sports Complex in St Catherine yesterday. Mount Pleasant came out on the front foot and took the lead when striker Kesslan Hall fired past Dunbeholden’s goalkeeper, Geovanni Smith, in the 20th minute. However, the home side fought back with two goals inside two minutes. Kevin Reid found the equaliser in the 26th minute, and the outstanding Jerome Wedderburn got the winning goal in the 28th minute. South Central Confederation champions, Dunbeholden started slowly but picked up momentum. Mount Pleasant, who won the Eastern Confederation, were shabby in defence and paid the price. The margin of victory could have been wider had it not been for faulty shooting, especially from Lorenzo Dubidad. Dunbeholden was the better-organised team and deserved to win the game. Coach of Dunbeholden Michael ‘Richie’ Cohen described the victory as “overwhelming”. “It is an overwhelming feeling to win our first game in the play-off series. We represented well. The team started slowly and went behind but found the equaliser and winner,” Cohen told The Gleaner immediately after the game.
