Derby Ace will try to defend title minus Raymundo and Pingris

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
All-Filipino Conference

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados (formerly called Purefoods TJ Giants) will try to defend the All-Filipino Title minus the services of both Kerby Raymundo and Marc Pingris who will have surgery in the US and a new coach, Jorge Gallent. Raymundo and Pingris maybe out for 4-5 months and will try to comeback in the 2nd conference after the PBA has reinstated the 3-conference format for the 36th season.

Although there are rumors of trades by Derby Ace, there are still no confirmed transactions and the two Rookies drafted by B-Meg, Pari Llagas and Val Acuna might be signed soon to fill up the slots vacated by Raymundo and Pingris.

Crucial Game 4 for Derby Ace and TNT

5pm – Alaska Aces vs Talk N Text Tropang Texters
7:30pm – B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
Cuneta Astrodome

With both Alaska and San Miguel holding a 2-1 lead in their respective best-of-seven semifinals series, Derby Ace and Talk N Text hopes to even their series and not fall into a 3-1 deficit which is difficult to come back specially against tough opponents like the Aces and the Beermen.

The Llamados hopes to have a similar game on the 1st half of Game 3 where they controlled both ends of the floor, but must be consistent in all quarters so that they will not let San Miguel come back again at the end of the game. Last conference, Derby Ace (Purefoods TJ Giants) also had a 2-1 deficit in the semifinals and eventually won three straight games against San Miguel to enter the finals and sweep the Alaska Aces. We hope it is the same case this conference.

Let us give our all out support to our team the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados!

San Miguel takes Game 1

B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs San Miguel Beermen
San Miguel wins 101-88


San Miguel Beermen
takes Game 1 of the best-of-7 semifinals series vs Derby Ace by beating the Llamados badly 101-88, specially in the 3rd quarter where San Miguel put on a show with a couple of dunks by Jay Washington and three point shots from Hontiveros and Villanueva where they ended the quarter with a 16-2 run.

After scoring 49 points in Game 5 vs Rain or Shine, Tony Washam was held to only 23pts, James Yap top scored for Derby Ace with 24pts and only reserve Peter June Simon as the other Llamados in double figures with 12.

But just like last conference where the Purefoods TJ Giants was beaten badly in Game 1, they got back in Game 2 and eventually won the series, we hope that Coach Ryan Gregorio will make the adjustments in Game 2 and this will also be a test for Derby Ace Import Tony Washam who also has to make offensive adjustments from different Beermen defending him.

Game scores:

San Miguel 101 – Washington 28, Freeman 23, Santos 15, Hontiveros 15, Villanueva 8, Pena 4, Racela 3, Cabagnot 2, Seigle 2, Miranda 1, Yeo 0, Ildefonso 0, Pennisi 0.

Derby Ace 88 – J. Yap 24, Washam 23, Simon 12, Artadi 7, Timberlake 6, Maierhofer 6, Pingris 4, Adducul 2, Reavis 2, R. Yap 2, Canaleta 0, Allado 0.
