MVP James Yap led B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados to a win versus the Talk N Text Tropang Texters with 26 points, but it was Rico Maierhofer and Marc Pingris who set the tone for the game and grabbed crucial rebounds in the 4th quarter to tie this best-of-seven semifinals series at 2-2.

Marc Pingris had a double double with 13 points and 11 rebounds while Rookie of the Year Rico Maierhofer scored 10 points and grabbed 7 rebounds (6 offensive). With the series now tied at 2-2, it is now just a best-of-three series with the winner of Game 5 this Wednesday gaining an upper hand.

Derby Ace had their biggest lead at 21, 66-45 in the 3rd quarter but Talk N Text battled back in the 4th led by Jimmy Alapag who scored 22 points in the game. B-Meg must improve their free throw shooting in their next game, since they missed 16 free throws in Game 4.

Special mention goes to Nino “KG” Canaleta who also had a double double with 19 points and 13 rebounds.

Best Player of the Game: James Yap 26 pts. 4 rebs. 3 assts.

    Now I understand the wisdom of the management for not grabbing Rabeh from the rookie draft. B Meg has big men with big hearts. The rotation of big men will be disturbed with Rabeh aroung. Rico shone in the fourth quarter having three tip ins when TNT was making its run. Congratulations! Game 5 is very important. Beat TNT in game five and be back in the Finals of the All Filipino Cup. Rico and KG played good basketball in game 4. Hope you can contribute again in game 5.

    I believe B-MEG is potent with the two Yap’s, Peter Simon, Canaleta and Pingris and able support of the rest despite Talk ‘N Text considered a powerhouse team, will make it. Ride on!!!
