Barako Bull tests Ginebra

February 01, 2015

LA Tenorio of Brgy. Ginebra. Sports5/Paul Ryan TanBIÑAN, Laguna—Less than a week after all pretournament hype on them were extinguished, Barangay Ginebra gets a chance at redemption when the Gin Kings slug it out with the Barako Bull Energy in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup eliminations at Alonte Sports Center here.

After going down in shambles in their debut against Meralco on Tuesday, the Kings and the much-ballyhooed Michael Dunigan plunge back into action in the 5:15 p.m. game against a Barako Bull crew that will be seeking a piece of the early lead.

Ginebra, which underachieved in the last two conferences under the now sacked Jeffrey Cariaso, played well below expectations in a 74-85 loss to the Bolts in the inaugurals, failing to maximize the huge advantage it had in size and failing to get Dunigan going.

Ato Agustin, who is back for another tour on the Ginebra bench, never got his tall frontline to work against the Bolts, as Meralco simply outworked the Gin Kings on both ends on the way to the stirring triumph....

Ginebra needs to make most of size advantage, says import Michael Dunigan

January 29, 2015

Brgy. Ginebra import Michael Dunigan. Sports5/Paul Ryan TanThere were some very high expectations for Barangay Ginebra import Michael Dunigan in his return for a second tour of duty in the PBA.

Dunigan was a strong force in his initial stint with Air 21 – and was even considered a naturalization candidate for the Philippine national men’s basketball team. Naturally, he was perceived to be one of the better imports in the Commissioner’s Cup this season.

In his first game back, though, Dunigan was simply outplayed by his counterpart, Josh Davis of Meralco. Not only did Davis finish with 25 points and 24 rebounds, better than Dunigan’s 17 and 14, the Bolts also claimed the victory....

Ato Agustin surprised by Ginebra’s showing in opener: ‘Sa practice ang galing namin’

January 29, 2015

Brgy. Ginebra head coach Ato Agustin. Sports5/Paul Ryan TanComebacking Barangay Ginebra coach Ato Agustin was impressed with what he saw from his team the moment he took over as mentor of the squad prior to the start of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

Agustin’s squad has performed very well in practice as well as in their tuneup games, a sign that his team was prepared for the new conference.

But games are not won during practice sessions or tuneup games, and they had a harsh reminder of that in their loss to the Meralco Bolts on opening day....

Ginebra import Michael Dunigan: 'We need to find our identity'

January 28, 2015

 It's a long way to go for Michael Dunigan and Barangay Ginebra San Miguel. KC CruzWhen Ato Agustin took over as Ginebra coach, it signaled that the team will no longer use the triangle offense and instead go run-and-gun.

Come the first game of the Commissioner's Cup, however, there was no trace at all of the running team the Gin Kings envisioned. They scored only three points off the fastbreak as they lost 85-74 to Meralco on Tuesday.

"We're just all over the place. We need to find our identity as a team," said import Michael Dunigan, who finished with 17 points and 14 rebounds for Ginebra. "Wanna shoot threes, wanna go inside, we gotta put it together."...
