Magnolia kicks off with a victory

The Magnolia Beverage Masters slammed the youthful Air21 Express 121-112 in the opener of the 2007-08 PBA Conference.

Absent from the previous conference to take part of the RP team, Danny Seigle and Dondon Hontiveros made their presence felt as they exploded with 28 and 15 point respectively.

Well, obviously the wining team carries much experience so the outcome is not really a shocker.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

But anyway, it’s great to watchtwo of my favorite cagers, Seigle and Fonacier play in the same team. Magnolia for the championship. biased! Lol.

Fonacier now a certified Beermen

It’s confrimed. Larry Fonacier is officially part of San Miguel Beernmen. I knew it, when I saw Enrico Villanueva playing for San Miguel, I was saying that they should have taken Fonacier instead. Anyway, in exchange for Fonacier, Redbull seeks Chris Calaguio, Francis Adriano and Brandon Cablay.

Jordan ends SMC-RP’s Olympic bid

It was a bitter pill to swallow. A real heartbreaker. It is the end for the losing team of the match.

Unfortunately the Philippine National Basketball team is still not fully equipped as they take on the road to the ‘Olympic Dream’ as Jordan eliminates San Miguel Pilipinas 84-76 in the FIBA-Asia.

SMC-RP’s ‘Olympic Dream’ didn’t really turn out as a nightmare. The Filipino cagers worked really hard and did their best and that’s a good consolation.

Maybe next time we could see a Philippine Basketball team in the Olympics. Maybe next time we could see a more competitive National team where we could see the likes of Arwind Santos, Larry Fonacier, Enrico Villanueva, Jervy Cruz and Yousif Aljamal… I say put more pure pinoys in the team right?

I never liked Chot Reyes. Don’t know why, I just do.

Jimmy Alapag was great, I was really impressed with his performance. As well as Kelly Williams. Gabe Norwood’s good but he’s still young. Mark Caguioa, Asi Taulava and Dondon Hontiveros, they’re great too. Danny Seigle didn’t get much action though, still a bit rusty because the injury but I’m still a fan. Jayjay Helterbrand and Kerby Raymundo got their share of the spotlight. Mick Pennisi, Erik Menk and Renren Ritualo didn’t get much action as well. I think I mentioned all of them.

But hey, they tried right? And let’s just hope we’ll get it next time. Keep supporting them. Win or lose.

Fonacier in San Miguel?

An article appeared yesterday saying that Larry Fonacier might be part of the San Miguel Beermen in the next PBA conference. If that will happen, he will join his fellow Ateneo cagers Wesley Gonzales, LA Tenorio, Enrico Villanueva and Olsen Racela.

FIBA-Asia starts tomorrow. Let’s support team Philippines.
