B-Meg Llamados vs Barangay Ginebra Kings
Ginebra defeats B-Meg, 99-79

The B-Meg Llamados led by James Yap (11 points in the opening quarter) controlled the 1st quarter but it was downhill from there as they lose by 20 points to the Barangay Ginebra Kings in the PBA Governors Cup Round Robin Semifinals. Mark Caguiao led Ginebra with 33 points.

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.

Game scores:

Ginebra 99 – Caguioa 33, Sloan 26, Wilson W. 10, Wilson J. 7, Intal 6, Tubid 6, Mamaril 6,

Next Game: B-Meg vs Ginebra

B-Meg Llamados vs Barangay Ginebra Kings
Sunday, July 24, 7:45pm, Smart Araneta Coliseum

Current Standing:
B-Meg Llamados: 5 wins, 4 losses
Barangay Ginebra Kings: 5 wins, 3 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.

Come from behind win by B-Meg to start the semifinals

B-Meg Llamados vs Rain or Shine Elasto Painters
B-Meg defeats Rain or Shine, 99-98

Rain or Shine led by as much as 17 points in the 3rd quarter but the B-Meg Llamados came back in the 2nd half to start the semifinal round with a big come from behind win, 99-98. 5 players scored in double figures for the Llamados led by James Yap with 23 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.

ROS import Arizona Reid won his match with new B-Meg import Myron Allen, with Reid scoring 41 points but missed a crucial jumper at the end of the 4th quarter. Myron Allen scored 18 points while contributing 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in his PBA debut.

Peter June Simon made the game winning basket with 21.7 seconds remaining in the game while Marc Pigris made the defensive stops while controlling the boards with 11 rebounds along with 10 points. Newly acquired Josh Urbiztondo played only 7 minutes and scored 2 points in his B-Meg debut.

Game scores:

B-Meg 99 – Yap J 23, Allen 18, Devance 17, Simon 17, Pingris 10, Allado 8, Yap R 4, Urbiztondo 2,
Gaco 0, Reavis 0.

Rain or Shine 98 – Reid 41, Buenafe 12, Chan 10, Vanlandingham 7, Norwood 7, Belga 6, Arana 6, Tang
5, Ibanes 4, Jazul 0, Cruz 0, Rodriguez 0, Kramer 0.

Quarters: 19-23, 39-54, 71-75, 99-98

New acquisition: Josh Urbiztondo

B-Meg Llamados signed Point Guard Josh Urbiztondo after Air 21 Express put Urbiztondo in the Unrestricted Free Agent list. After losing Jonas Villanueva to an injury, the Llamados needed another Point Guard in their rotation specially for next season where Pong Escobal will return to Barako Bull (Now owned by Bert Lina, change of name not yet final).

New import Myron Allen will probably play Point Guard in the current PBA Governors Cup and Josh Urbiztondo will play behind Allen and Roger Yap.

Welcome Josh Urbiztondo.
