Derby Ace faces old Coach

PBA 36th Season Philippine Cup
B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Meralco Bolts
October 20, 2010, 7:30pm, Cuneta Astrodome

Both Derby Ace and Meralco are in a losing streak and one team will finally break it tonight as Coach Ryan Gregorio of the Meralco Bolts will face his former team, the B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados at the Cuneta Astrodome.

B-Meg has lost its first 3 games in the current Philippine Cup but Coach Jorge Gallent hopes to get his first win in the PBA as head coach and it will be more memorable if he wins because he will be facing the previous mentor of Derby Ace.

Another match up to look for is current MVP James Yap vs Meralco franchise player, Mac Mac Cardona.

Head Coach Jorge Gallent

Jorge Gallent will be taking over the head coaching job for B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados. There were a lot of candidates from Purefoods/San Miguel/Ginebra Teams but SMC decided Gallent is a right fit for the Llamados. Gallent joined Purefoods mid 2008-2009 season as an assistant coach to new Meralco Coach Ryan Gregorio.

As a player in the PBL, Gallent won seven (7) championships with Stag Pale Pilsen/Tanduay Rhum in the PBL under head coach Alfrancis Chua. And as a coach, he won six (6) titles with the Harbour Centre squad. And he hopes to bring this championship experience as player and coach to the Purefoods franchise and also defend the All-Filipino Cup in the 36th Season.

Only Koy Banal and Dayong Mendoza are still under contract as assistant coaches for Derby Ace. Congratulations Coach Jorge Gallent and Good luck!
