Nino “KG” Canaleta and Peter June Simon led Derby Ace with 21pts and 18pts respectively in behalf of James Yap (only 8pts) who played sparingly.

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!

San Miguel takes 3-1 lead

Philippine Basketball Association

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
San Miguel wins 83-75

San Miguel outrebounded Derby Ace 61-45 as they take a 3-1 lead in their best-of-seven semifinals series and try to close out on Game 5 this Friday, 5pm at the Araneta Coliseum. James Yap led Derby Ace with 18pts but it was another subpar performance for Derby Ace Import Tony Washam who only scored 12pts on 2 out of 19 from the field.

Although the Beermen now needs just one win in 3 tries, the Llamados must take it one game at a time and keep up with the energy of the Beermen. The other locals actually played well, like Roger Yap who had 15pts, 5rebs and 7asts, Marc Pingris with 8pts and 9rebs and Rico Maierhofer with 6pts, 7rebs and 3asts but we need more production from Washam in scoring and specially in rebounding (Gabe Freeman had 24 rebounds in this game).

Let us give our all out support in Game 5 and take it one game at a time, last conference we won 3 straight games vs San Miguel and we must believe it is still possible this conference.

Game Scores:

San Miguel 83 – Freeman 22, Santos 12, Hontiveros 12, Washington 11, Yeo 7, Cabagnot 7, Ildefonso 7, Racela 3, Vilanueva 2, Pena 0.

Derby Ace 75 – Yap J 18, yap R 15, Washam 12, Pingris 8, Maierhofer 6, Simon 6, Reavis 4, Canaleta 3, Artadi 2, Allado 1.

San Miguel gets back at Derby Ace, now lead series 2-1

Philippine Basketball Association
2010 Fiesta Conference Semifinals Game 3
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
San Miguel wins 74-70

A big lead in the 1st half, a see saw battle in the final 2 quarters and a thrilling finish, just like in Game 2, but this time around it was San Miguel who played catch-up as Derby Ace erected a 17-point lead in the 2nd quarter which the Beermen cut to 12 at the half. And it was a very close game in the 4th quarter as the two teams exchanged baskets and finally Arwind Santos knocking a big three point shot with the score tied at 70-all to give San Miguel a 2-1 edge in their best-of-seven semifinals series.

In Game 2, it was San Miguel who had a big lead and Derby Ace made a run in the final quarter to tie the series. The Llamados only scored 25pts in the 2nd half as the defense of San Miguel kicked in, Tony Washam led Derby Ace with 22pts, 13rebs, 4asts and 3stls but was only 1 out of 8 from three point range. For the locals, only James Yap (17pts) and Don Allado (10pts) who scored in double digits.

A highlight of the game was a block by Olsen Racela on a buzzer beating three point shot by Nino “KG” Canaleta at the end of the 3rd quarter which pumped up the beermen and tightened their defense more in the last quarter where Derby Ace shot very poorly. The locals specially the bench players must step up in Game 4 (Wednesday, 7:30pm at Cuneta Astrodome) in order for Derby Ace to have a chance in this series.

Game scores:

San Miguel 74 – Hontiveros 17, Freeman 14, Washington 12, Santosd 8, Pena 6, Villanueva 5, Yeo 5, Cabagnot 5, Seigle 2, Racela 0, Ildefonso 0.

Derby Ace 70 – Washam 22, Yap J. 17, Allado 10, Timberlake 5, Artadi 5, Pingris 4, Canaleta 3, Maierhofer 2, Salvador 0, Yap R. 0.

Quarterscores: 14-24; 33-45; 57-58; 74-70

San Miguel takes Game 1

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
San Miguel wins 101-88


San Miguel Beermen
takes Game 1 of the best-of-7 semifinals series vs Derby Ace by beating the Llamados badly 101-88, specially in the 3rd quarter where San Miguel put on a show with a couple of dunks by Jay Washington and three point shots from Hontiveros and Villanueva where they ended the quarter with a 16-2 run.

After scoring 49 points in Game 5 vs Rain or Shine, Tony Washam was held to only 23pts, James Yap top scored for Derby Ace with 24pts and only reserve Peter June Simon as the other Llamados in double figures with 12.

But just like last conference where the Purefoods TJ Giants was beaten badly in Game 1, they got back in Game 2 and eventually won the series, we hope that Coach Ryan Gregorio will make the adjustments in Game 2 and this will also be a test for Derby Ace Import Tony Washam who also has to make offensive adjustments from different Beermen defending him.

Game scores:

San Miguel 101 – Washington 28, Freeman 23, Santos 15, Hontiveros 15, Villanueva 8, Pena 4, Racela 3, Cabagnot 2, Seigle 2, Miranda 1, Yeo 0, Ildefonso 0, Pennisi 0.

Derby Ace 88 – J. Yap 24, Washam 23, Simon 12, Artadi 7, Timberlake 6, Maierhofer 6, Pingris 4, Adducul 2, Reavis 2, R. Yap 2, Canaleta 0, Allado 0.
