New Meralco Bolts Import Chamberlain Oguchi made an impressive debut with 43 points but could not lead the Meralco to its 1st win in the PBA Commissioners Cup. Solomon Mercado and Gabby Espinas led the locals with 18 points each but no other player scored in double figures including Mac Cardona with only 8 points.

Talk N Text was led by import Paul Harris with 32 points but had problems guarding Nigerian-American Oguchi.

Buzzer Beater by SMB gives Meralco 3rd straight loss

Philippine Basketball Association 36th Season
2011 Commissioners Cup
Meralco Bolts vs San Miguel Beermen
Sam Miguel beats Meralco, 90-89

A putback by San Miguel Beermen Import Ira Brown gave San Miguel a 1-point win against the Meralco Bolts. Meralco now has a 0 win and 3 loss record and needs to win its last 6 games in order to have a chance to advance in the next round and they are trying a new import in their next game, Chamberlain Oguchi, a Nigerian-American who played in the NBA Development League.

Tony Dandridge led Meralco with 23 points in his last game in the PBA Commissioners Cup. It seems that the combination of Mac Cardona and Sol Mercado has not worked well as they combined for only 30 points.

Game Scores:
San Miguel 90
– Brown 18, Washington 17, Yeo 13, Cabagnot 12, Al Hussaini 10, Santos 10, Miranda 5, Salvacion 3, Ildefonso 2, Baclao 0, Hubalde 0.

Meralco 89 – Dandridge 23, Cardona 19, Taulava 13, Espinas 12, Mercado 11, Hugnatan 11, Weinstein 0, Ross 0, Aljamal 0, Aquino 0.

Quarter scores: 26-25, 51-46, 71-65, 90-89.
