Seahawks soar over Fighting Crimsons S

aint Joseph College of Sindangan, Inc. Seahawks dominated the basketball court in their exhibition game against Western Mindanao State University Fighting Crimsons at SJCSI gym, Sept. 5. The cagers from WMSU, Zamboanga City, blasted off with the first shot by team captain Dixon Punzalan. Their tight defense prevented the Seahawks from scoring to consequently hold on to their 4point lead by the end of the first quarter. Three-point shots stormed the second quarter as point guard Punzalan and forward Jefferson Abalo showed their shooting skills that still kept WMSU in the lead. However, the Seahawks managed to stop the Crimsons’ drive and penetration with their sudden change in defensive tactics—from whole-court trap to half-court trap man-to-man. ―Because of the tough press breaker of WMSU, the whole court trap did not work,‖ coach William Calvo said.

―After the 8–0 blast of easy game, we were forced to change our defense,‖ Calvo added. The second half started with great exchanges of incursions and shot selections. In the third quarter, Seahawks broke WMSU’s 2–3 zone defense and tied at 42–42. Four minutes and 42 seconds of the third quarter, Seahawks guard Edmar Salac did a fast break and a lay up through a clear basket, and brought Seahawks into a 2-point lead. This was followed by captain Wayne Jalosjos’ followup shot that never gave their opponent a chance to respond. The crowd of students and outsiders boomed as winger Reynante Devila’s 3-point shots rained the court. The Seahawks’ half-court man-to-man and press breaker to

WMSU’s zone defense proved effective when third quarter ended with a 17-point lead in favor of the Seahawks. In the final quarter, Final Crimsons’ center Jaypee Padua dominated the under basket, but the menacing Seahawks were uncontrollable. WMSU Fighting Crimson’s 2-point shots were answered by Jalosjos and Devila’s 3-point shots. The friendly game ended with the Seahawks’ home court victory, 79–76, during the first day of the intramural meet. ―It was a good game,‖ Padua commented. ―We have played against the Seahawks thrice already, and we are looking forward to having more games with them in the future,‖ Punzalan added. (Sheena Marie S.

Both Cristonel Tan from the College of Accounting Technology–Information Technology and Jeremy Lecias from the College of Business Administration failed in their first jump.

long with chess and Games of the Generals, sudoku joined the domain of “intellectual games” for the events of the intramural meet, Sept. 5. Cecilio Barbosa Jr. from the College of Arts and Sciences– Education and Aimee Bestes from the College of Accounting Technology–Information Technology garnered the most number of correct points to win the sudoku tournament.

Sudoku, short for soji wa dokushin ni kagiru, means ―the numbers must be single‖ or ―the numbers must occur only once.‖ The game originated in Japan and was introduced in Great Britain in late 2004 and the united States in 2005. In less than a year, sudoku became one of the most popular puzzles in history. Since then, sudoku books have been published; and tournaments have been held across the USA and around the world. The Language Report named sudoku the Word of the Year for 2005. (Judee B. Garsuta)
