San Miguel goes to the Finals, Alaska forces Game 7

Philippine Basketball Association
2010 Fiesta Conference Semifinals Game 6
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
San Miguel wins 9-83

San Miguel Beermen is back in the finals after beating B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados, 91-83 and ending their best of seven semifinals series 4-2. San Miguel got back at Derby Ace (Known as Purefoods Tj Giants last conference), who defeated them in the Philippine Cup semifinals, 4-2. Although San Miguel led most of the game, Derby Ace made a couple of runs in the 3rd and 4th quarters to threaten the Beermen, but uncharacteristic was James Yap (14pts, 6rebs), missing two free throws that could have cut the lead even further.

Derby Ace Import Tony Washam led the team with 30pts, 12rebs, 2asts and 2stls but was clearly bothered by San Miguel’s defense on him. Roger Yap led all locals with 15pts and also contributed 7rebs and 8asts. Derby Ace will still have its last game this Friday for 3rd place.

In the other semifinals match up, Alaska beats Talk N Text and forces a Game 7 this Wednesday.

It was a great year for Derby Ace/Purefoods, winning the All-Filipino Conference via sweep and hope they still have the heart to take 3rd place this friday vs the loser of the Alaska vs Talk N Text semifinals this Wednesday. We are proud of the team and what they have accomplished. Go B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados!

    syang.. idol james missed those 2 crucial free throws .. he usually makes those shots .. its uncharacteristic of him .. well , anyway maybe because he’s so tired or pressured… washam was shut down by arwind… sana si james penny na lang.. pero ok lang… at least nahirapan ang san miguel sa atin … we gave them a good fight .. hopefully next season kerby can play .. and maybe we could trade canaleta, allado and salvador to beef up our lineup.. congrats SMB and Derby ace for a nice series… go idol james.. go derby ace .. bawi tayo .. next time … 🙂

    maybe its time for us to wake up and trade players like salvador,adducul and fernandez,they did nothing.we need to get a high caliber players like taulava, tugade, aljamal and even ronjay buenafe, hindi natin kaya ng si james yap lang ang gumagawa,you have to include pennissi for outside shooting and a point guard like miranda.hirap talaga tayo pag malalakas ng team like SMB and T&T and even alaska.buti nga d tayo na pumasok sa finals kc kung pumasok tayo sa finals im sure d pa rin kayo mag upgrade ng rosters nyo at d kayo magigising…coach ryan at team mgr alvin(sayang idol pa naman kita.
