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.

Breaking down one of San Beda's plays versus Arellano

Arellano is set in its defensive man-zone position with a mind to defend against lane incursions. What I would do is force Tongco to pick up his dribble and pass off before he can get into the play. Am not sure that Brylle Meca is a good defender on Davon Potts. Maybe Michael Canete can do a better job as I think he has better defensive instincts.

Arellano isn't too aggressive in stopping the play. The allow it to unfold. 

There's a moment here where if Lervin Flores read it well, he could pick off the pass by Rob Bolick to JV Mocon. Flores is of course aware that Donald Tankou might slide in this pick and roll. 

Mocon's drive has Arellano confused. Four defenders inside the paint with only Meca outside to watch Potts. Mocon has the option to drop the ball to Tankoua or throw it out to a wide open Ranbill Tongco. He went strong and was fouled for two free throws.
