Fajardo admits having a hard time vs Bono

ANTIPOLO — Height is might, but for June Mar Fajardo, heft gave him problems in San Miguel’s duel against Meralco on Wednesday.

With the four-time PBA Most Valuable Player having his way down low, Bolts coach Norman Black dug deep and pulled Ken Bono out of his bag of tricks as the 33-year-old center made life hard for the Beermen slotman in the second half.

“He was heavy and was big,” Fajardo said of the former Adamson star as he was seemingly frustrated majority of the last two quarters.

Showing his pedigree, however, the Cebuano giant eventually solved the puzzle as he linked up with Chris Ross in pick-and-roll plays in the fourth period on his way to 26 points and nine rebounds in San Miguel’s 103-97 victory Ynares Center here.

Fajardo said that those adjustments are further proof that no team this conference, not even a Meralco crew, which was at the cellar the past two all-Filipino conferences, is a pushover as the Beermen saw what was once a 22-point lead trimmed down to as low as one in the third frame that paved way for the frantic finish.
