James Yap out as Meralco defeats Derby Ace

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Commissioners Cup
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Meralco Bolts
Meralco defeats Derby Ace, 89-86

Even without MVP James Yap, who sat out of this game due to a calf injury, B-Meg almost defeated the Meralco Bolts again but came up short in the end game as they suffered their second straight setback and now at the bottom half of the standings with 2 wins and 4 losses.

Derby Ace had a chance to get the lead with 26 seconds left and Meralco leading by 1, 87-86, but Kerby Raymundo in just his second game back from an injury missed a shot and Mac Cardona sealed the win for the Bolts with 2 free throws.

Peter June Simon led the Llamados with 17 points and 3 rebounds while Marc Pingris contributed a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Nino “KG” Canaleta had a big 4th quarter with 10 points (3 three point shots) but was neutralized by Meralco Import Champ Oguchi who made 4 three pointers in the 4th quarter which includes the shot that gave the Bolts the lead, 87-86.

It was the first time that Meralco won against Derby Ace since getting the Sta. Lucia franchise and the 1st win by Meralco head coach Ryan Gregorio against his former team.

Game scores:

Meralco 89 – Oguchi 29, Taulava 15, Mercado 13, Cardona 13, Hugnatan 6, Espinas 5, Ross 4, Gamalinda

    napakabobo ng mgt at coach kaya pati import nakuha sobra kabobo, ano ba gusto nyo palabasin at ayaw nyo palitan import nyo, daig pa ng locals umiskor, kung d rin lang kayo magpapalit, pauwiin nyo na yan at sayang lang pasweldo nyo dyan, buti pa pag all filipino gumaganda ang laro, import na nga lang ng meralco ang gumagawa d pa nabantayan ng ayos

    di naman cguro management ang bobo.. ang pa star e si kerby.. gusto mag pa star e akalain mo naman tumira ng jumpshot!! madami pa options anjan si simon or roger yap. may oras pa para ma set ng higher percentage shot. gusto pa star laos na naman. kawawa naman si ping sayang effort.

  3. jai says:

    please replace mr. spears as import… he is not suitable for our team. please make some necessary player shake ups like re acquiring paul artadi in team’s line up, trading aging front liners and giving jondan salvador some palying to prove his worth. if possible do get the services of jay-r reyes, gabe norwood or even noy baclao.

    congratulations to kerby.. he is now 100%… beware other teams..

    kung pwede lang ganun pag pinalitan pwede kunin si adams papalitan na ata sayang xa ang galing panaman kaya tinatamad sa style ni yeng na bulok binabangko si noorwood ganun din ginagawa nya kaya malamang lilipat nadin yun sinisira lang lang yeng ang isang player

    Am in the hospital during that time, watching the game between bmeg and meralco. Malakas talaga ang line up natin lalo pag walang injured na key players. Of course bopol lang talaga ang import natin. The problem right now is with the head coach (sariling opinion ko lang). It’s a won game sana kung may composure lang ang mga coaches. Ang understanding ko kasi sa isang very good head coach ay isang magaling na tactician, may composure during crunch time, matalino gumamit ng players in an adverse situation. Unfortunately, di iyan ang nakita ko sa last game ng bmeg. Ang best defensive player (Pingris) dapat ang na assign sa import ng kalaban. No offense meant to Simon, iba pa rin pag si James ang humahawak ng bola pag crucial plays. It has been proven several times already. Laking bagay ng turn over nung na trap siya (Simon) ng kalaban. Puwede namang ibato sa paa ng meralco players. But that’s water under the bridge now. Sana patunayan naman ng coach na he deserves the trust of the management and of the loyal fans.
