The B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados had a chance to win the game but Nino Canaleta missed a three-point shot and Derby Ace import Robert Brown could not attempt a last shot in the dying seconds (from an angle, he may have been fouled but no foul was called) as B-Meg loses its 1st game and Rain or Shine winning its 1st game under coach Yeng Guiao.

Robert Brown led Derby Ace with 19 points but missed a crucial free throw that should have tied the game at 95. He may be replaced by Shamari Spears in their next game. James Yap and Peter June Simon each scored 14 points but was tightly guarded in the closing seconds and neither attempted a shot.

Rain or Shine Hassan Adams led Rain or Shine with 30 points but it was Ryan Arana who was named Best Player of the Game with 18 points, 11 points in the 4th quarter.

Game scores:

Rain or Shine 95 – Adams 30, Arana 18, Rodriguez 11, Norwood 9, Belga 6, Ferriols 6, Cruz 4, Jazul

Derby Ace 94 – Brown 29, J. Yap 14, Simon 14, Villanueva 11, Pingris 11, Allado 7, Canaleta 6,
Salvador 2, Maeirhofer 0, Escobal 0, R. Yap 0

Quarterscores: 28-28; 51-47; 77-74; 95-94

Derby Ace 1st game tonight, Robert Brown stays for Now

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados will face Rain or Shine with their new coach, Yeng Guaio and minus JR Reyes and Sol Mercado who was traded to different teams. Game time will be at 7:30pm at the Cuneta Astrodome.

Although new Import Shamari Spears has passed the height limit, B-Meg will use Robert Brown in the game tonight and will keep Spears as a replacement if Brown does not play well tonight.

From: http://www.basketballbeyondborders.com
“Tony is an athletic small forward, whose versatility could see him spend time at the shooting guard or the power forward position . Is a proven scorer at every level he has played and has shown a real knack for filling it up. He sees the floor extremely well and can find open teammates when he draws a double team,…which is always! Possess good shooting touch and has shown that he can hit the long ball with consistency. He does not rely solely on his outside shot and is a player with great ability to slash to the basket and finish with authority. Solid on defense he moves well and doesn’t gamble. He is far above average with his rebounding ability and has led his team in that category from both the back and front courts! Tony has the ability to lift the play of his entire team and with him on the floor good things will happen.”

Rain or Shine defeats Derby Ace in OT

Philippine Basketball Association
2010 Fiesta Conference Quarterfinals Game 3
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Rain or Shine Elasto Painters
Rain or Shine wins in overtime 117-111 now leads series 2-1

Sol Mercado (16pts, 9rebs, 15asts) of Rain or Shine Elasto Painters takes over in OT by scoring 9 points and beats Derby Ace Llamados, 117-111 and is one win away from the semifinals matchup vs San Miguel Beermen. Derby Ace had a chance to win in regulation with 5sec left in the game but wasted the opportunity to lead this series. James Yap had a season high 34 pts along with 4rebs and 4asts, made clutch baskets in the 4th quarter, but still came up short missing a couple of three point shots in overtime.

Derby Ace was down in the 1st half with Rain or Shine having its biggest lead with 18points, but Derby Ace came back strong starting the 3rd quarter with an 18-0 blast and it was a very close game in the 4th quarter with a couple of players making big baskets down the stretch including Nino Canaleta (17pts , 6rebs) and Don Allado (10pts, 4rebs) of Derby Ace and Jervy Cruz (16pts, 8rebs) of Rain or Shine.

Derby Ace Import Clif Brown, who might have played his last game in the PBA contributed 31 pts, 23rebs (11 offensive) and 5asts. Game 4 will be on Friday, July 16 at the Cuneta Astrodome at 7:30pm.

Other notes from the game:
– Marc Pingris and Kerby Raymundo did not play due to injuries.
– Roger Yap – 5pts, 10asts, 4rebs, 1stl, 1blk
– Rafi Reavis – 5pts, 11rebs, 2asts, 1blk
– Derby Ace was only 21 of 32 from the Free Throw line

Game scores:

Rain or Shine 117 – Nealy 32, Chan 22, Cruz 16, Mercado 16, Norwood 14, Arana 6, Laure 5, Ibanes 4, Reyes 2, Tang 0, Salangsang 0, Hrabak 0.

Derby Ace 111 – Yap J. 34, Brown 31, Canaleta 17, Allado 10, Artadi 6, Reavis 5, Yap R. 5, Simon 2, Maierhofer 1, Timberlake 0, Salvador 0, Adducul 0.

James Yap leads Derby Ace to beat San Miguel

Philippine Basketball Association
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
Derby Ace beats San Miguel 83-82

James Yap showed again why he is a big time player and the Best Player of the Conference last Philippine Cup, by leading the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados to a big win over rival and 1st place San Miguel Beermen, 83-82.

Former MVP James Yap scored 23 pts including a big shot at the end of the game to give Derby Ace a 1-point win. Nino “KG” Canaleta contributed 14 pts with 3 three point shots to help Derby Ace control the game in the 1st quarter, but San Miguel controlled the second half and led by 8 points with 9min left in the game.

With Derby Ace Import Clif Brown fouling out of the game, it seems like San Miguel will retain its No. 1 position in the current 2010 PBA Fiesta Conference, but Yap had other things in mind making the game winning shot and with 6 seconds left in the game, the defense of Derby Ace held on to give them a big win and is now solo 3rd place.

With the subpar performance of Import Clif Brown (scoring only 11pts but collecting 13rebs and 5asts), we’ll see in the next few days if Derby Ace will replace him, special mention goes to the locals of Derby Ace who stepped up this game like Marc Pingris (10pts and 14rebs) and Paul Artadi (9pts, 3rebs and 5asts). Next game will be this Friday, June 11 vs Rain or Shine.

Game Scores:

Derby Ace 83 – Yap J. 23, Canaleta 14, Brown 11, Yap R. 11, Pingris 10, Artadi 9, Maierhofer 3, Allado 2, Simon 0, Reavis 0.

San Miguel 82 – Freeman 27, Cabagnot 12, Seigle 11, Hontiveros 8, Yeo 7, Santos 7, Washington 6, Villanueva 3, Pena 1, Miranda 0, Ildefonso 0.

Quarters: 26-17, 39-35, 64-65, 83-82
