Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Arellano’s Pinto, UE’s Mammie head Filoil weekly awardees

The Arellano University Chiefs point guard Nard Pinto is the Master Best Player of the Week of May 22-25 in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup. Pinto has skippered the Chiefs to 6-2 record in the tournament and is second in Group A behind undefeated National University prompting Arellano head coach Koy Banal compared to Dennis Miranda, his former point guard with Far Eastern University when they won the UAAP title in 2003.

The Chiefs won two matches in that period; a 67-66 win over San Beda, and a 83-67 shellacking of Jose Rizal University.

Pinto led the charge against the Red Lions with 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and one steal versus two turnovers.

Against the JRU Heavy Bombers, Pinto netted 16 points, five rebounds, seven assists, and three steals against four turnovers.

Charles Mammie was named the Gatorade Defensive Player for the Week of May 22-25 after the University of the East’s center from Sierra Leone pulled down 15 rebounds against the Lyceum of the Philippines University and nine rebounds and one steal against La Salle. The Red Warriors won both matches.

Wrapping up the weekly awards of the premier collegiate summer basketball tournament are the Gatorade Best Five of Pinto, UE’s dynamo of a point guard in Roi Sumang, Emilio Aguinaldo College forward Noube Happi, the University of Santo Tomas’ veteran forward Aljon Mariano, and Adamson University’s forward-center Rodney Brondial.
