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.

The University of Perpetual Help Altas’ young Nigerian center Bright Akhuetie captured Total Player of the Week honors after leading his school to a 2-0 record in the first week of the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup.

In two matches, Bright averaged 17.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.0 steals, and 2.0 blocks in two wins over Letran and University of San Jose Recoletos.

Filoil Tournament Director Joey Guillermo named Bright to the Gatorade Best Five along with San Beda’s Baser Amer, Emilio Aguinaldo College’s Addum Mbang, UE’s Paul Varilla, and UST’s Mario Bonleon.

The Gatorade Best Defensive of the Week is Mapua’s Allwell Oraeme who was the lone bright spot for the Cardinals during a loss to the University of the Philippines. Oraeme grabbed an incredible 29 rebounds and blocked two shots.
