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.

Second gen stars lead way for DLSZ in BBI hoops wins
by rick olivares

Second-generation hoopsters stamped their class for different age-division teams of De La Salle Zobel last weekend in the Smart Breakdown Basketball Invitationals Cherifer Tangkad Sagad Tournament at the Moro Lorenzo Sports Center in Quezon City.

Dwyane James Miranda, son of pro player Dennis Miranda, top scored for DLSZ’s 12-Under team in a 73-39 demolition of Rich Golden Showers Montessori College. The younger Miranda led the way for the Junior Archers with 13 points.

Miranda has another 10-year old basketball playing son also for DLSZ, the eponymously-named Chris Paul Miranda.

In the 10-Under category, Kristoffer Favis scored 13 points while Daniel Sta. Maria, Dominic Joaquin Arejola, and Kiefer Alas each added nine points in a 53-41 win over Ateneo. Kristoffer is the son of former DLSZ and UST star Binky while Daniel is the son of former Green Archers forward Adonis Sta. Maria. Dominic Joaquin is the son of former DLSU guard Eric Arejola who is now with GlobalPort team management in the PBA. Kiefer is the son of former Adamson star and current Phoenix Petroleum coach Louie Alas.

Xavier School bounced back from a disappointing weekend the other week with a 12-Under clobbering of La Salle College Antipolo, 86-24, and a 17-Under triumph over Our Lady of Perpetual Succor College, 87-60, behind Batang Gilas’ Miguel Tan’s 21 points with Martin Sadhwani adding 12. The Golden Stallions held LSCA to below double digits in each of the first three quarters.

Agila, a club team of Ateneo players in the 10-under bracket laid waste to OLPSC, 82-33 behind Derek Domangcas’ 19 points and LeBron Nieto’s 12 markers. Nieto is the youngest son of former Ateneo Blue Eagles Jet Nieto whose other songs, Matt and Mike recently helped their seniors squad cop the UAAP title.

In 12-Under play, Disciples defeated Ateneo-Paya, 57-49.

The Smart Breakdown Basketball Invitationals are sponsored by Smart, Cherifer, San Marino corned tuna,, and Mared Rubber.
