After giving it much thought, Kiefer Ravena feels that the timing is just right for him to enter the PBA. “I really thought about this with my family and a decision that really took so much time. Once I submitted my papers, I knew my future is already here,” Ravena said. One of the most […]
NLEX continued its dream run in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup, this time stunning San Miguel with a 103-100 thriller on Sunday.

Coach Yeng Guiao may have his reservations when it comes to NLEX’s 4-0 start, but Carlo Lastimosa is convinced that the Road Warriors are no fluke. But he wouldn’t deny that even he is surprised with how cohesive NLEX has been so far in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup. “Of course, I think all of […]
It wasn’t the way coach Yeng Guiao wanted to celebrate his 58th birthday.

[…]
NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao said major changes have to be made after his team ended the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup with the worst record.

Enrico Villanueva has been ruled out of the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup after the veteran big man suffered an MCL tear on his left knee.

Enough of being the third banana. With coach Yeng Guiao in tow, NLEX hopes to finally take that huge step and be among the contenders this upcoming season. The coaching change is the biggest offseason move for the Road Warriors, who have yet to make waves in their three years in the PBA. This season […]
Jericho Cruz only had one guy to thank for his Most Improved Player award. “Without coach Yeng (Guiao), I wouldn’t be here right now. Binigyan nya ako ng playing time, binigyan niya ako ng tiwala na pag nasa loob ako, may magandang mangyayari,” he said on Friday after the 2016 Leo Awards. Averaging only 24.3 […]
Rain or Shine is not the premier model of consistency in the 2016 PBA Governors’ Cup.

The stern mentor let his guard […]
Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao wasn’t all too pleased when the Elasto Painters went pedestrian against Talk N’ Text in their opening game in the PBA Governors’ Cup.

For Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao, his incoming import Dior Lowhorn reminds him a lot of his former reinforcement Pierre Henderson-Niles.

Lowhorn and Henderson-Niles may be similar in terms of what they can offer being an […]
Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao captured his seventh PBA title and in the process derailed his former player’s bid for a fourth championship.

Looking back, Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao could only smile as he reminisced what could’ve been had things worked out differently. “During draft day, tine-trade pa namin siya eh,” Guiao said on Cruz, whom the Elasto Painters selected as the ninth overall pick in the 2014 PBA Draft. “Walang gustong kumuha. Naghahanap kami ng […]
Last Wednesday, Rain or Shine head coach Yeng Guiao refused to guarantee a victory even after his Elasto Painters had taken a comfortable 3-0 lead in their 2016 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals duel with the Alaska Aces.

Rain or Shine failed to win one for its head coach Yeng Guiao on Monday. Guiao served a one-game suspension and without him, the Elasto Painters couldn’t do much in a 114-103 loss to TNT, in a game they trailed by as much as 22 points. Assistant coach Caloy Garcia, who momentarily took over the […]
Rain or Shine had to find a replacement import quickly after Wayne Chism got hurt.

He was picked very early in […]

Reid finished with a game-high 38 […]
San Miguel Beer coach Leo Austria knows the law of averages should catch his team.

After Marcio Lassiter’s game was spoiled in Game 2 after Rain or Shine snatched the victory, it was his turn to exact revenge by raining on Wendell McKines’ parade in Game 3. The San Miguel defense limited the Elasto Painters reinforcement to just 39 points on Monday, compared to the 53 he tallied two days […]
