PBA 37: Cone loses first game as B-Meg coach

6 10 2011

Rookie Chris Lutz, Alex Cabagnot, and Arwind Santos combined for 47 points to give Tim Cone a loss in his first PBA coaching stint outside the Alaske Aces. The Petron Blaze Boosters won against the preseason favorite B-Meg Llamados, 73-69, in the main PBA Wednesday game at the Cuneta Astrodome.

The B-Meg Llamados were actually out to impress their new coach as they led 22-13 in the first 12 minutes of the game. They held twin digit leads before Petron rallied in the 2nd period to cut the deficit to just a single basket at the half. The Boosters opened the final half with a  9-0 blast to seize the lead from B-Meg and took a 58-54 lead going to the payoff period.

It was an exciting 4th quarter, as Tim Cone’s wards rallied to lead 67-66. National team member Chris Lutz then, got a 3-point play off ex-Gilas teammate Mark Barroca. The Llamados could not buy a basket in the 3-point area as Alex Cabagnot sealed the win with four free throws as B-Meg were forced to foul.

Peter June Simon scored 21 points to lead the Llamados while James Yap and Kerby Raymundo were held to 10 points each.

Injury Notes: Dondon Hontiveros left the game in the first quarter in an apparent foot injury.


PETRON 73—Lutz 19, Cabagnot 17, Santos 11, Miranda 8, Sharma 6, Ildefonso 5, Guevarra 3, Agustin 2, Yeo 2, Baclao 0, Hontiveros 0.
B-MEG 69—Simon 21, Yap J. 10, Raymundo 10, Devance 9, Yap R. 9, Ferriols 4, Barroca 2, Reavis 2, Maierhofer 1, Pingris 1, Urbiztondo 0.
Quarters: 13-22, 36-38, 58-54, 73-69, 73-69
