Another close game and another controversial ending for Derby Ace Llamados vs Alaska Aces in overtime, with Alaska beating Derby Ace for the 2nd time this conference 99-97 . With 2.5 seconds left in OT and Alaska leading by 1, Nino “KG” Canaleta was called for an inbound violation, where he came from the outside before getting the inbound pass, but the replay clearly shows that he already established position in the inside before getting the pass.

Even though the replay was shown many times the referees stayed with their call and Derby Ace fouled LA Tenorio who made the 1st free throw and intentionally missed the second to give Alaska the win. James Yap forced overtime earlier with a 3-point shot and contributed 22pts, 4rebs and 3asts but it was Clif Brown who led all scorers with 33 points and 11 rebounds (7 offensive).

Special mention goes to Roger Yap who had 10pts, 5rebs, 7asts and 5stls and former Alaska player Don Allado who had 11pts and 9rebs.

Game Scores:

Alaska – Simpson 29, Tenorio, 26, De Vance 13, Baguio 13, Dela Cruz 6, Thoss 5, Hugnatan 4, Cablay 3, Eman 0, Fonacier 0.

Derby Ace – Brown 34, Yap J 22, Allado 11, Yap R 10, Canaleta 7, Pingris 7, Artadi 3, Simon 3, Timberlake 9, Maierhofer 0, Salvador 0, Reavis 0.

Cagayan de Oro City – After a 4-0 sweep by Purefoods TJ Giants (now called B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados) vs the Alaska Aces last PBA Philippine Cup finals, Alaska finally won over Derby Ace 83-81. It was another controversial ending for these two teams as Derby Ace Import Lorrenzo Wade was called for a foul at the end game with the referees calling a counted basket by Willie Miller with the score tied at 81 along with the foul by Wade, Miller intentionally missed the bonus free throw and Alaska won 83-81.

At the buzzer, Lorrenzo Wade tried to go after the referees but was stopped by his teammates. It was the second straight loss for Derby Ace with the opponent having no Import at the end game as Jamal Simpson fouled out with more than 2 minutes remaining. In their previous game, Coca Cola Import James Penny was sidelined at the end of the game due to bleeding from an unintentional elbow by Lorrenzo Wade but Derby Ace could not capitalize and lost for the first time this conference to the Coca Cola Tigers.

Rookie of the year candidate Rico Maierhofer led Derby Ace locals with 15 points but Best Player of the Conference James Yap was held to 10 points only. Derby Ace Llamados sorely misses their Team Captain Kerby Raymundo who is still recuperating from a knee injury,
