August 28, 2016

Mark Caguioa and James Yap. PBA Media BureauBarangay Ginebra San Miguel looks to grab a share of the No.2 spot as they renew their Manila Clasico rivalry against the slumping Star Hotshots in PBA Governors’ Cup action Sunday at SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Crack guards Thompson, Revilla among top rebounders

August 16, 2016

Scottie Thompson of Ginebra. PBA IMAGESIN A CONFERENCE dominated by imports, and in a season where big local men spell pretty much the difference for the PBA teams, two point guards have so far stood out for their respective sides in a statistical department where height is considered might.

Rookie Scottie Thompson of Barangay Ginebra and the 5-foot-7 LA Revilla of Mahindra are in the top 10 of the rebounding department among locals, joining giants like reigning two-time Most Valuable Player June Mar Fajardo and Asi Taulava and the workhorse Calvin Abueva.

They have so far outworked several prominent big men in that department, big men like Thompson’s teammate Japeth Aguilar, Rain or Shine’s 6-8 Raymond Almazan, the veteran Alaska Ace Sonny Thoss and highly touted top overall Draft pick Moala Tautuaa of TNT KaTropa....
