December 6 - Tuesday

PCCL Final Four
December 6, Tuesday
Arena, San Juan

[Ateneo - 69     San Sebastian-70]

A few pictures, a few words - - -

- Stop Slaughter ! -

- Contain Kiefer ! -

- Clamp Down On Calvin !-

 JP Erram blocks John Marquez.
Erram has 3 blocks, playing 15 minutes on the court.

- Unstoppable Stag -
Calvin Abueva makes Kirk Long eat dust.
 Abueva gets into the paint,[drive and draw]
and shovels a pass to Ian Snagalng who converts an easy two.
[13-frame sequence follows]

The Dynamic Duo of Abueva and Sangalang [Calvin scores 20 and Ian scores 18]nets a total of 38 points for Baste,
which is more than half of the team's 70-point output.
Abueva hauls down 11 to lead all rebounders.

Inside game, Outside Game - Calvin's got it !!

[Iyan din si Ian - napakahirap pigilin sa loob ! Maski pa ilang Atenista ang nasa ilalim, pagnakapuwesto si Sangalang - malamang makukuha niya ang offensive board at makaka putback, kung di man, ay defensive board.

- Tied up in a "Knot" so Pleasant Way -
Greg Slaughter and Michael Miranda jockey for position.
 Slaughter end ups getting a falgrant after this sequence.
[5-frame set below]

- Great Game ! -

Gotta hand it to the Golden Stags - considering Arnold Pascual is in the injury list.
Even if by a single point, a W is a W.
Bravo Baste !

[Petron - 80     Talk n Text -78]

This match turns out to be a won game lost, for the Petron Blaze, that is.  With less than a minute left and Petron behind by only one, go-to-guy Alex Cabagnot drills a three. The Petron gallery is in a frenzy. TnT calls time time. With barely seconds left, Texter Kelly Williams gets into the teeth of the Blaze defense and earns two free throws [foul by Arwind Santos].  Williams makes free throw #1, misses free throw #2 but Japeth Aguilar snatches the rebound and streches for a sure two. The Petron fans are stunned and now the Texters' fans are the ones whooping it up and giving high fives.  Aguilar then seals the win from the charity lane - and even steals the ball from the Blaze as they throw in and as the buzzer sounds to end a most dramatic game.

 Alex Cabagnot's Big Three.
Apparently, it's not big enough.
 Here's the foul by Arwind Santos.

Japeth Aguilar beats Arwind Santos for the offensive board 
after Williams misses free throw #2.
Joseph Yeo can only look and expect the inevitable.

Harvey Carey pumps and shouts, the Blaze can only stare stupefied,
as Aguilar's putback trickles down  the net.

Bouuyah !!!

I say - - -

how you start matters, but how you finish counts.
