Talk N Text wins 7th straight game beats Derby Ace

Philippine Basketball Association
2010 Fiesta Conference
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Talk N Text Tropang Texters
Talk N Text wins 114-89

With 7 players from Talk N Text scoring double figures led by Marc Cardona with 23pts, the defense of Derby Ace faltered and Talk N Text retained their No. 2 position in the current PBA fiesta conference. The firepower of Talk N Text with recent acquisitions, Kelly Williams and Ryan Reyes scoring 14 and 11 pts respectively, was too much for the Llamados, specially in the 3rd quarter where Talk N Text scored 31 points while limiting Derby Ace to only 14pts to win 114-89.

James Yap scored 28pts but was closely guarded by Harvey Carey most of the game and was not able to score much in the 3rd quarter where Talk N Text pulled away. Derby Ace Import Clif Brown had a monster game off the boards with 23 rebounds (14 offensive) but could not lead Derby Ace to a win and halting their winning streak to just 3 straight.

Jimmy Alapag was named best player contributing 15points and 10 assists.

Game Scores:

Talk N Text – Cardona, 23, Carey 16, Daniels 15, Alapag 15, Williams 14, Reyes 11, De Ocampo 11, Dillinger 3, Waters 2, Castro 2, Aban 2, Yee 0, Quinahan 0.

Derby Ace – Yap J 28, Brown 22, Artadi 9, Pingris 9, Maierhofer 7, Timberlake 4, Canaleta 4, Simon 4, Yap R 2, Adducul 0, Reavis 0, Allado 0.
