Photo courtesy of the PBA Media BureauMANILA, Philippines – The Mahindra Floodbuster leaned on a crucial fourth-quarter run to outlast the Blackwater Elite, 96-87, and claim only their second win of the 2017 PBA Commissioner's Cup on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.

New acquisitions Glenn Khobuntin and Eric Camson made an immediate impact for the Floodbuster as they snapped a five-game losing streak and kept their slim playoff hopes alive.

"Great, amazing effort from our new guys, Glenn and Eric," Mahindra coach Chris Gavina said. "Glenn and Eric have bought in quick. They've only been with us for a few days, but they've had an immediate impact towards the rest of our guys, and our guys have embraced them."...

Teng confirms applying for PBA draft

May 05, 2017

MANILA, Philippines -  Two-time UAAP Finals MVP Jeron Teng said the other day he’ll join the PBA draft late this year and the uncertainty of not knowing the team to play for isn’t really causing sleepless nights.

“First of all, we don’t know who are coming out,” said the 23-year-old Teng, a two-term Dean’s Lister who expects to earn his Business Management degree at La Salle in October. “Kiefer (Ravena) and Ray Ray (Parks) might decide to join. I’m sure there will be Fil-Ams in the draft, too. I can’t speculate when my name will be called. It would depend on who’s available and the team that’s picking.”

Teng said his focus is what he can control, not what he can’t. “I’m determined to be competitive,” he said. “I learned from my dad (Alvin) that hard work always pays off. That’s what I can do – work hard every day at practice, work hard in every game. Right now, I’m working on extending my range. I do two hours of shooting with coach RenRen (Ritualo) starting at 6 a.m. in the Xavier Gym, five days a week from Monday to Friday and try to make at least 300 three-pointers every session. Once the season begins, I want to add something different, something new in every game so I’m not predictable. My entire focus is to improve as a player and as a person every day.”...

Hot-shooting DiGregorio dedicates career game to fallen relatives

May 04, 2017

Michael Digregorio. PBA IMAGESTo say that Mike DiGregorio was inspired in Blackwater’s game against NLEX on Wednesday is a great understatement.

The sophomore sniper was truly motivated to make his every shot count as he played through an emotional day.

“Today was actually a special day because it’s the death anniversary of my grandmom,” he shared. “And this morning, I found out that my cousin, his wife’s dad, passed away. He had a heart surgery, but he ended up passing away.”...
