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.

Ravena leads UAAP statistical race
by rick olivares

At the end of the first round of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament, Ateneo’s Kiefer Ravena is leading all players in statistical points with 70.85sps.

He is closely followed by UST’s Kevin Ferrer with 68.28sps while his Growling Tigers teammate, Ed Daquioag, on the heels on a 34-point performance in 83-76 win over UE, climbed up to third with 65.00sps.

Ferrer, who is in his final year with UST, says that being in the running for the MVP award is nice but he prefers to win a championship. Ferrer has played in three title series, one in high school, and two in college but each time, his team came up short. “Sobrang importante sa akin yung championship,” said Ferrer who won a MVP Award in his fourth year in high school. “Pang seventh year ko na pinaglalaban yung UST kaya gusto ko mag-iwan ng championship para sa sa iskwelahan. Gusto ko rin magkaroon ng championship. Mas importante sa akin yung championship kasi mas masaya lahat."

NU’s Alfred Aroga whose game has picked up after the Bulldogs’ dismal 0-3 start, is fourth with 61.14 sps. “I can’t think of MVP Awards right now,” said Aroga. “Defending the championship is our goal. My goal."

La Salle’s Jeron Teng is fifth with 60.14 sps.

At sixth and seventh are a pair of FEU players in Mark Belo and Mike Tolomia who respectively tallied  57.85sp and 55.85 sps. Karim Abdul is the third UST Tiger in the Top Ten coming in at eighth with 53.00sps. Raymar Jose is the third Tamaraw on the list crowding UST just like in the league standings with  52.00 sps that is good for ninth. Rounding out the ten best in the league so far is UE’s Edison Batiller who has 51.42 sps.
