Japeth saves day as Ginebra completes come-from-behind win over Talk `N Text.

JAPETH Aguilar nailed a cold-blooded triple in the final 1.1 second, and then rejected Ranidel de Ocampo’s last-second attempt to help Barangay Ginebra complete a pulsating 97-95 come-from-behind win over three-time champion Talk ‘N Text in the PLDT myDSL-PBA Philippine Cup on Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The 6-foot-9 Aguilar bucked a slow start by dropping 19 of his team-high 21 points in the second half to lead Ginebra’s magnificent fightback from as much as a 14-point deficit.

The fourth quarter saw Aguilar unveil his newest repertoire in the game when he nailed a pair of booming three-pointers.

The former Ateneo and Western Kentucky Hilltopper product, who was never known for knocking down three-pointers, nailed his first from beyond the arc at the 6:01 mark of the final period to give Ginebra the lead, 87-86.

But it was his second three-point shot that proved to be dramatic which came with the game-clock winding and the outcome of the match on the line.

He made the shot off a broken pick and roll play called by coach Ato Agustin.

“Ang last play namin talaga pick and roll na lang para kay Japeth talaga kasi I told them, kailangan hard sila to the basket. Eh swerte lang, pumasok `yung three-points ni Japeth,” said an obviously relieved Agustin after the game watched by a crowd of 13,476.

The win shoved Ginebra to solo second at 4-1, a fitting bounce back after falling to Meralco, 87-100, last Tuesday.

Kerby Raymundo for Jay-R Reyes Trade?

Kerby Raymundo’s departure from Ginebra might be forthcoming. In an information that reached Solar Sports Desk, Raymundo is said to be on his way to the Meralco Bolts for Jay-R Reyes.The trade is said to be pursued already by Smart Communications Vice President for Sports Patrick Gregorio.

“Hinihintay na lang namin ang sagot nila,” said a source from Meralco. “Hopefully matuloy na rin ito!”
Even Raymundo’s agent, Danny Espiritu, hinted at the pending transfer of the agile wingman from Orion, Bataan.

“Malapit lapit na yan. Oras na lang ang hinihintay,” said Espiritu with a grin.If Meralco will finally bag the 32-year-old former Letran Knight, the team will finally become a championships contender.

Just in the last 5 days, the Bolts have acquired Gary David, rookie guard AJ Mandani, big man Rabeh Al-Hussaini and Nelbert Omolon in two separate trade deals.

“We really want to improve the roster. Hopefully, makuha na si Kerby. Siya na lang ang kulang,” said the source of the possible reunion between Raymundo and his former coach at Purefoods, ryan Gregorio.
“Ryan kasi knows how to use Kerby. Alam niya ang kiliti ni Kerby,” added the source.

Reyes, on the other hand, will further bolster Ginebra’s frontline. Assuming the Kings draft Gregory Slaughter, coach Ato Agustin will also have a slew of big men patrolling the lane with reyes, Japeth Aguilar, Rico Maierhofer and undersized slotmen Billy Mamaril and Willie Wilson.
