Ginebra defeats B-Meg

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Governors Cup
B-Meg Llamados vs Barangay Ginebra Kings
Ginebra defeats B-Meg, 89-85

The Barangay Ginebra Kings won for the 2nd straight time without an import, this time beating the B-Meg Llamados, 89-85. 5 players scored in double figures for Ginebra led by Ronald Tubid with 20 points and 6 rebounds.

B-Meg import Darnell Hinson bounced back from a 5-point performance the last game scoring 21 points and also contributed 9 rebounds and 5 assists but it was not enough to keep B-Meg from losing its second straight game and slid down the standings in the current PBA Governors Cup.

James Yap and Peter June Simon both scored 14 points (Simon scored 9 points in the 4th quarter) but Yap was only 3 out of 11 from the 2-point range. Marc Pingris continued with his great play with 11 points and 9 boards but newcomer Joe Devance disappeared from this game scoring only 8 points and got just 4 rebounds.

The Llamados had a chance to at least tie the game in the closing minutes but Rafi Reavis missed from point blank range and another shot missed by Joe Devance. James Yap who has made a lot of big shots in his career was covered well by Ginebra and was not able to touch the ball much in the end game.

Willie Miller and JC Intal did not play for BGK due to injuries while B-Meg is still missing the services of Kerby Raymundo, Rico Maierhofer and Jonas Villanueva.

Next Game: B-Meg vs Powerade

B-Meg Llamados vs Powerade Tigers
Friday, June 17, 5pm, Araneta Coliseum

Both teams lost their 1st game
Powerade lost to Ginebra by 12 and B-Meg lost to ROS by 12 also

Both teams with key injuries
Powerade missing top scorer Gary David and B-Meg missing Kerby Raymundo, Rafi Reavis and Rico Maierhofer.

Import Matchup
Chris Porter, 6’6 plays Power Forward vs Stefhon Hannah, 6’1 Point Guard/Shooting Guard
Porter scored 38 points in his 1st game but it will be Marc Pingris and Jerwin Gaco who will be the one guarding Porter. Hannah needs to step up from his bad game against ROS or else B-Meg will be forced to replace him early.

Prediction
B-Meg will win by 14 points, the Llamados just needs to guard Chris Porter, there are no other scorers in Powerade. If Hannah bounces back from his subpar game, this will be an easy win for B-Meg. James Yap and Joe Devance will lead in scoring.

Maierhofer out vs Air 21

Rico Maierhofer who suffered a knee injury in their last game will miss the game vs Air 21 Express tomorrow, March 2 at the Cuneta Astrodome. Let us all pray for Rookie of the Year Rico Maierhofer and hope that his injury is not very serious.

In other news, Kerby Raymundo will be back on March 6 and may play against Barangay Ginebra on March 6 or against Alaska Aces on March 13.

Good luck Llamados!

Powerade beats B-Meg

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Commissioners Cup
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.

Derby Ace 96 – Spears 22, Canaleta 16, Simon 15, Yap J 14, Villanueva 14, Yap R 11, Pingris 2, Salvador 2, Escobal 0, Allado 0.
