PBA Governor Cup Latest Updates

As the PBA Governor’s Cup continuously rages on, a number of teams had started to come up from the competition, B-Meg Llamados with their second straight win with Barako Bulls, and Powerade Tigers with their first win of the competition.


B-Meg’s Second Straight Win B-MEG booked a second straight victory after repulsing Barako Bull, 95-90, on a night when Powerade finally won a game in the PBA Governors’ Cup eliminations at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Marcus Blakely scored 29 points, had 15 rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks despite an aching back and carried the Llamados to a 2-1 record after the Tigers ripped Alaska, 114-97.

According to latest PBA News, Marc Pingris returned after a two-game absence to shoot 11 and grab the same number of boards, while Willie Miller couldn’t save the Energy from losing a second straight game and dropping to 1-2 despite shooting 29.

Powerade’s Comeback After Powerade’s continuous winless efforts in the PBA Governor’s Cup, the Tigers had finally won their first victory over Alaska with the help of their new import, Omar Sneed.

Sneed, a 34-year-old journeyman who has seen extensive action in Belgium, Venezuela and the Netherlands, replaces the celebrated, but disappointing, Rashad McCants when the Tigers clash with the Aces in the 5:15 p.m. contest set at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao.

McCants averaged 25 points in his two games with the Tigers, but the talent and skill that took him to stints with Minnesota and Sacramento in the NBA have clearly deserted him, forcing Powerade officials to look for a replacement.

With their win, Powerade is set to challenge Talk N’ Text, in which both teams are in the bottom half of the standings. According to PBA Latest News, the Texters will come into the match with a three-day rest while the Tigers will be playing a second game in three nights with Gary David, the tournament’s best local scorer, expected to be the focus of the Talk ‘N Text defense.

After shooting 31 points in a 114-97 rout of Alaska on Friday, David is the logical man to stop for the Texters if they wish to score a follow up of a masterful conquest of defending champion Petron Blaze.
