Alaska defeats Derby Ace

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Commissioners Cup
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Alaska Aces
Alaska defeats Derby Ace, 97-91

The Alaska Aces spoiled the return of Kerby Raymundo as they defeated B-Meg Derby Ace, 97-91. James Yap led the Llamados with 22 points but suffered leg cramps in the 4th quarter and missed the critical stage of the game as the Aces pulled away.

Kerby Raymundo who missed the last 33 games of B-Meg contributed 4 points and 3 rebounds. Marc Pingris had a good game with 18 points and 9 rebounds. Derby Ace clearly has to replace import Shamari Spears who was effective only on a few instances and could not stop Alaska import LD Williams who scored 30 points.

Jonas Villanueva missed the game due to an injury along with Rafi Reavis and Don Allado.

Game scores:

Alaska 97 – Williams 30, De Vance 19, Tenorio 16, Thoss 14, Baguio 9, Eman 7, Dela Cruz 2, Borboran
0, Custodio 0, Cablay 0.

29-point win by Derby Ace against Air 21

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Commissioners Cup
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Air 21 Express
Derby Ace defeats Air 21, 121-92

B-Meg capitalized on the distracted Air 21 team as they rout the Express, 121-92. Air 21 which was rumored to trade their 3 1st round picks Al-Hussaini, Baclao and Guevarra to San Miguel seemed affected by the reports and Derby Ace played an almost perfect game with 27 assists and led by Nino “KG” Canaleta with 28 points while the duo of James Yap and Peter June Simon combined for 41 points.

The only dent in the game of the Llamados was the low contribution of Shamari Spears who was ineffective on his 2nd straight game with only 8 points and needs to be replaced in order for Derby Ace to climb up the standings.

Before the game, it was announced that Rico Maierhofer will be out of the season with a left ACL tear. Let us pray for the speedy recovery of Rico Maierhofer.

Note: After the game, it was announced that PBA Commissioner Salud has already approved the trade of Hontiveros, Siegle, Pena and Artadi to Air 21 in exchange for Al-Hussaini, Baclao and Guevarra.

Game scores:

Derby Ace 121 – Canaleta 28, Yap J 22, Simon 19, Villanueva 13, Pingris 12, Gaco 9, Spears 8, Escobal 4, Salvador 4, Yap R 2, Adducul 0.

Air21 92 – Al-Hussaini 17, Reyes 17, Robinson 15, Avenido 9, Baclao 8, Juntilla 5, Najorda 5, Arboleda 5, Sharma 4, Urbiztondo 3, Gatumbato 2, Gonzales 2, Guevarra 0.

Quarters: 28-15, 64-42, 101-62, 121-92

Powerade beats B-Meg

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Powerade Tigers
Powerade defeats Derby Ace 103-96

New Import, same results for B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados as they lost to Powerade Tigers in Lanao del Norte, 103-96. It was the 2nd straight loss for the Llamados to start the 2011 PBA Philippine Cup.

New Derby Ace Import Shamari Spears led B-Meg with 22 points but was mostly ineffective offensively and defensively as Tigers Import Russel Carter outplayed him scoring 36 points and contributing 19 rebounds and 6 assists.

Nino “KG” Canaleta led the locals with 16 points. It was actually a close game in the 1st half until Powerade pulled away in the 3rd quarter scoring 38 points with Derby Ace scoring only 19.

Only the Derby Ace guards contributed well with James Yap, Peter June Simon, Jonas Villanueva and Roger Yap scoring in double figures but the big men combined could only contribute 4 points.

Another bad news for the Llamados, Rico Maierhofer had a hyper-extended left knee and will be out indefinitely. But the good news is Rafi Reavis and Kerby Raymundo will be back soon.

Game scores:

Powerade 103 – Carter 36, David 18, Lanete 10, Macapagal 8, Gonzales 8, Antonio 7, Espino 6, Cruz 5, Calimag 4, Anthony 1, Reyes J. 0, Rizada 0.

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados will not be defending their All-Filipino title in the current PBA Philippine Cup as they lose to Talk N Text Tropang Texters in 6 games of their best-of-seven semifinals series. Talk N Text is back in the finals and is waiting for the winner of the San Miguel vs Ginebra matchup, with San Miguel still leading the series, 3-2.

Rico Maierhofer and Marc Pingris both had a double-double with 15 points, 13 rebounds and 10 points, 13 rebounds respectively. But no other Derby Ace player had a decent game, and the bench of B-Meg was again outplayed by the TNT Bench.
