No love lost between TNT, San Miguel

There was no love lost between rivals San Miguel Beer and TNT as they figured in a highly-physical, drama-filled duel made for the playoffs, if not in a finals setting.

At the center of it all was Beermen guard Chris Ross, who drew the ire of TNT’s Michael Craig Jr., Roger Pogoy and Ranidel de Ocampo throughout Wednesday night’s game.

The matchup was a rematch of last conference’s championship series won by San Miguel in six games and the two teams picked up where they left off.

“It’s the first time we play those guys in the last three weeks, last month or something. Obviously, it was for bigger stakes last month, but there were a lot of emotions in this game,” said Ross, who collected five points, eight rebounds and 10 assists to help San Miguel fend off TNT, 97-91.

Despite his dustups with Pogoy and Craig, Ross had nothing but praise for the two after the game.

As a veteran and many-time champion, Ross also offered advice for the 25-year-old Pogoy, who is only in his first year in the league.
