Ginebra import Donald Sloan (26 points) outplayed B-Meg import Myron Allen who was ineffective for most of the game with only 17 points. Marc Pingris and Joe Devance where the other Llamados in double figures with 13 and 11 points respectively. Peter June Simon was missing from this game with only 4 points and newly acquired Josh Urbiztondo in his 2nd game for B-Meg contributed 5 points.

It was a big win for Ginebra which is now in solo 2nd place and B-Meg now needs to win it’s last three games in the semifinals to force a playoff berth with team in 2nd place.

Current Standing:
B-Meg Llamados: 5 wins, 4 losses

Import Matchup:
Myron Allen vs Donald Sloan: Both imports had only 1 game in the PBA with Myron Allen scoring 18 points in his debut in a win against Rain or Shine last Friday and Donald Sloan scored 32 points in his 1st game for Ginebra.

Fatigue Factor:
James Yap/Marc Pingris of B-Meg and Mark Caguiao/JC Intal of Ginebra played against the NBA All-Stars last night at the Ultimate All-Star Weekend and the Llamados just came from a big come from behind win over ROS last friday while Ginebra is playing its first Semifinal game.

Prediction:
This will be a close game with the Llamados winning by 3 points.
