Talk N Text Tropang Texters clobbered San Miguel Beermen this week to win the best of 7 series for the Philippine Cup championship. Talk N Text routed the Beermen 95-82 to close the series at 4-2 and win the title. TNT guards Jimmy Alapag and Jayson Castro were awarded as co-Finals MVP finished the game with 15 and 7 points respectively.
Jay Washington carried San Miguel on his back with by dropping 29 points against TNT. However, he had very little help from his teammates as they were unable to deliver especially on the offensive side. Dondon Hontiveros just added 11 points while Arwind Santos and Danny Ildefonso had 10 points each. Retiring veteran guard, Olsen Racela was a non factor in the game as he only had 1 point.
Both teams would have several days off before they prepare for the next conference. Tropang Texters will try to carry the momentum going into the next conference where they will get support from their import Paul Orangeman as they try to win back-to-back championships.
Congratulations to TNT for winning the Philippine Cup, and I’m looking forward for more success in the next conference.
