PBA Philippine Cup 2016-2017 Updates & Results (February 20) San Miguel Beermen defeated TNT KaTropa, 96-83 to advance to the PBA Philippine Cup Finals on Monday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
SAN Miguel is not about to lower its guard, but should Jayson Castro be unavailable for TnT Katropa in the all-important Game Seven of the PBA Philippine Cup semifinals, then the reigning two-time defending champion has one less problem to worry about.
Leo Austria, the San Miguel coach, admitted the damage Castro always inflict on the Beermen – and on any other opponent for that matter – and his probable absence in Monday night’s sudden-death at the Mall of Asia Arena is indeed, a development the team will certainly welcome.
The Final Scoreboard Result:
SAN MIGUEL 96 – Fajardo 22, Santos 22, Ross 18, Cabagnot 14, Lassiter 12, Espinas 8, Heruela 0, Garcia 0, Tubid 0, De Ocampo 0.
TNT 83 – Fonacier 14, Pogoy 13, Williams 11, Rosser 9, De Ocampo 9, Reyes 7, Rosales 6, Tautuaa 5, Rosario 5, Seigle 4, Tamsi 0.
