    Guiao urges review of Game 5 officiating, says 'bad calls' hindered NLEX momentum

    From: Gerry Ramos March 18, 2018, 10:07 pm

    ANTIPOLO CITY – NLEX coach Yeng Guiao plans to talk to PBA officials regarding the matter of officiating, which he believed cost the Road Warriors Game Five of the Philippine Cup semifinals on Sunday night.

    Guiao said a review on several bad calls against the Road Warriors should be made since these hampered the team from taking off in the payoff period of the tightly-fought match at the Ynares Center here.

    Until the Hotshots turned things around with a huge fourth quarter run, the Road Warriors were very much in the game, 58-59, at the end of the third period.

    Magnolia went on to post an 87-78 victory for a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.

    “Pagdating ng fourth quarter hindi kami makabuwelo, sobrang dami ng bad calls. Yun ang pumatay sa amin,” admitted Guiao in a calm and collected manner.

    “We will talk to the commissioner and the technical committee. I think kailangan i-review nila yung mga lahat ng masamang tawag because that cost us the game,” he added. “Kailangang balikan kasi napaka-importante ng Game Six or kung magka-Game Seven ayaw nating ang result ng laro ay ma-decide ng bad calls.”

    Guiao lauded the Road Warriors despite playing without key player Kevin Alas, who hurt his right knee as early as the first quarter and never returned.

    The entire team was later spared from the usual tonque-lashing from its temperamental coach.

    “I did not get mad at them. Kita ninyo naman maaga kami lumabas (sa dugout) today, because I didn’t feel that the loss was their fault,” said Guiao. “Dikdikan naman e, kahit wala si Kevin. We put up a good fight, all the way to the fourth quarter.”

    Unfortunately, the calls began to get into the way of the Road Warriors.

    “Pero mahirap ngang makabuwelo nga kung may may bad calls going against us. Psychologically, mabigat na imanage yung frustration doon sa mga nangyari."

    San Miguel holds off gritty Ginebra to book fourth straight trip to Philippine Cup finals

    From: Karlo Sacamos March 17, 2018, 08:45 pm

    SAN Miguel Beer displayed its championship poise down the stretch as it finished off Barangay Ginebra, 100-94, on Saturday night to advance to the PBA Philippine Cup Finals for the fourth straight time.

    Alex Cabagnot showed why he’s one of the best closers in the league, scoring back-to-back baskets that gave the Beermen the lead for good and insurance points against the gritty Gin Kings to close out the best-of-seven series in five games.

    “Nakita natin na nag-all out sila (Ginebra) dahil their backs are against the wall,” SMB coach Leo Austria said. “Hindi namin nakitaan ng white flag. They came out really strong.”

    “But the players, our players, refused to lose dahil alam nila importance ng game na ‘to,” he added as his team clinched a finals appearance for the 39th time overall.

    The four-time defending champion Beermen are now waiting for the survivor of the Magnolia-NLEX Final Four series that’s tied at two games.

    The Beermen gained the extra rest after putting in the work needed in Game Five, overhauling an early 12-point deficit, before proving steadier against the Gin Kings at crunchtime.

    Cabagnot shone brightest, scoring four straight points, the first two that broke the last deadlock at 94, then the next two that gave them a two-possession lead, before Marcio Lassiter sealed the deal with two charities.

    June Mar Fajardo anchored the attack, pumping in 25 points on 11-of-18 shooting, nine boards, three assists, and one block that negated his eight turnovers, while Lassiter was again a steady presence, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds, and one assist in 41 minutes.

    Arwind Santos put up another all-around showing of 11 points, 13 caroms, four assists, four steals, and three blocks, while Matt Ganuelas-Rosser continued to make the most of his starting role, tallying 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting, eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks, and one steal, without committing a single turnover in almost 37 minutes.

    The result spoiled a triple-double performance from Scottie Thompson, who poured in 10 points, 16 boards, and 16 assists, on top of two steals, and one assist in 42 minutes.

    Japeth Aguilar also put up another offensive outburst with 32 points, along with four boards, two assists, one block, and one steal that went to waste.

    The scores:

    SMB 100 - Fajardo 25, Lassiter 23, Ganuelas-Rosser 14, Cabagnot 12, Santos 11, Espinas 5, Ross 5, De Ocampo 4, Pessumal 1

    GINEBRA 94 - J. Aguilar 32, Mercado 14, Thompson 10, Devance 9, Ferrer 8, Tenorio 8, R. Aguilar 7, Cruz 4, Caguioa 2, Caperal 0

    Quarterscores: 25-34, 55-55, 83-76, 100-94

    Globalport releases ‘unhappy’ Terrence

    By: Cedelf P. Tupas - Reporter / @cedelfptINQ Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:04 AM April 04, 2018

    Three-time PBA scoring champion Terrence Romeo will be suiting up for a different team for the first time since he was drafted five years ago when the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup gets going on April 22.

    Following a tumultuous stint with GlobalPort in the Philippine Cup playoffs, the Batang Pier shipped their high-scoring yet disgruntled guard to TNT KaTropa in a trade approved by the league on Tuesday.

    Center Yousef Taha will also join the KaTropa, who sent former 6-foot-7 top pick Mo Tautuaa to the Batang Pier along with their 2020 first round pick and 2021 second round pick.

    “It’s sad to let go one of the hottest players in the land, but we will not stand in the way of one’s desire and happiness,” said GlobalPort team manager Bonnie Tan. “So with a heavy heart, we are trading our top star. This is a win-win solution for us and the camp of Terrence.”

    “We have so much respect for the guy, but we, as a team, must also move on toward our main goal which is to get better.”

    At TNT, the 2015 Most Improved Player will be reunited with Gilas Pilipinas teammate Jayson Castro to form one of the league’s most explosive backcourt tandems.

    Romeo, picked fifth in 2013 by the Batang Pier, will also link up with coach Nash Racela, also his coach at Far Eastern U.

    Interestingly, KaTropa will open its Commissioner’s Cup campaign against the Batang Pier in the main game of the import-laced tournament’s opener at Smart Araneta Coliseum based on the schedule released by the league. Columbian Dyip (formerly Kia), goes up against Blackwater in the curtain raiser at 4:30 p.m.

    ^ Sisirain din ni Romeo ang diskarte ng TNT, just plain too selfish and self-centered a player to even be a meaningful contributor to a successful team.
