Nino Canaleta after being benched in the last game made a big three point shot for his only points in the game with 47sec left in the fourth quarter to give back Derby Ace the lead 90-89 and he also grabbed a couple of crucial rebounds in overtime.

Washam was 6 out of 9 from three point range and also contributed 8 rebounds and 4 steals. Rico Maierhofer had another great game  scoring 17pts and 10rebs (5 offensive), while Roger Yap had an all-around performance with 14pts, 10rebs and 8asts.

Special mention goes to Rafi Reavis who controlled the boards with 10rebs long with 8points.

    I’M GLAD THE B-MEG DERBY ACE MANAGEMENT FINALLY CHANGED THEIR IMPORT…..WITH AN IMPORT THAT CAN LEAD THE TEAM IN CRUCIAL GAMES.

    Terrific game, matindi rin ang rain or shine. Going to semifinals I would like to share these thoughts:

    a) That Roger Yap should be more stronger and active offensively and defensively. Baka di lang nila napansin ang laki ng impact mo sa team every time you win or lose. Seryosohin mo pa tsong, I have my faith on you.

    b) That Paul Artadi should utilize his quickness professionally and positively. Mabilis ka? Seryoso time na, bawal ang bara bara at pa cute ( no offense meant). Puso ang problem mo sa free throw,iyan dapat ang unahin mo.

    c) Peter June Simon should remember that he is the “supersub” regardless of how much playing time will be given.

    d)Rommel, Raffy, Johndan maging hari ng board at mahalagang put backs. Pls don’t waste free throws.

    e) Don Allado, perimeter jumper mo ay very crucial at pagiging wise sa game.

    f) Mark and Rico and KG, galitin niyo mga kalaban sa depensa at dunks.

    g) Kerby though unhealthy inspiration ng buong team, hope makabalik na finally. Pero huwag ipilit kung di pa handa,gawin na lang na pang surprise if needed.

    h)Washam is a cerebral import and reliable/dependable pero sana bigyan din ng pacing. Reserve mostly sa crucial stage.

    i) James… marami kaming naniniwala at susuporta sa iyo no matter what. Laban na pre.

    “I told the coaching staff that now that we’re already in the playoffs, we need an import who can play at a high level,” related Llamados governor and acting PBA chairman Rene Pardo. “Clif is a hardworking import but is not the type fit to play in the playoffs.” that was the words coming from basketball genius boss rene pardo! i would like to congratulate sir rene pardo who is responsible for replacing cliff brown! brilliant job sir, boss, chief! you are the best!!! i know the job isn’t finished yet but replacing cliff brown is more than enough for me, i dnt know how would we do against san miguel and gabe freeman if we have cliff brown as an import. just replacing cliff brown is enough to us fans already but to replace it with someone like tony washam is something else! if my math serves me right, i think he is just 28 yrs old and i guess he deserves one more tour of duty here next year? whatever happens to our semis game with san miguel. he may be lacking just a little in rebounding but there is not a big disparity compared to brown but look at his scoring? he the best scorer including those explosive imports who fell short earlier in the tournament like johnson and hickerson! we could easily make up with rebounding with pingris, reavis and maerhoffer around who is playing great basketball!!! again all the congratulations goes to sir, big boss, chief rene pardo!!! whoever reads this email pls if possible show my heartfelt thanks to sir rene pardo!!! great basketball I.Q. sir!!!
