MPBL: A late and-1 from Jason Melano is the difference as a weary Batangas holds back Imus in the UAE.

Playing their second game in as many days, the Batangas City Athletics - Tanduay gutted out a 86-85 overtime win over Imus Bandera Khaleb Shawarma in the Dubai Invasion of the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season on Saturday night, early morning Philippine time. The large crowd of mostly overseas Filipino workers at the cavernous Hamdan Sports Complex in the Emirati capital saw Val Acuna pour in 19 points to lead Batangas. But the coup de grace was a late go-ahead and-1 from Jason Melano to seal the win. "Sabi lang ni coach, presence of mind lang, wag ma-dala sa pressure," said Melano, who finished with 18 points. Batangas led 43-38 at the half and opened up a 68-54 lead at the end of the third thanks largely to the efforts of Jeff Viernes and Jayson Grimaldo. Tanduay seemed to have the game in hand, up by 11 points, 75-64 with just under 5 minutes left off an Acuna triple. It was only then that the Bandera found their rhythm. Jeric Nacpil hit a jumper then Jayjay Helterbrand knocked in back-to-back triples followed by another pair of three-balls by Jojo Cunanan to give the Cavitenos a shocking 78-75 lead with 1:20 left. Acuna responded with a tying triple of his own to knot the contest at 78-78. Helterbrand and Melano missed late and the game went into an extension. Nacpil's long two from the corner with 34 seconds left in OT gave Imus an 84-83 lead that was padded further by a Helterbrand split with just 13 ticks remaining. But Justin Melano was the hero in the end with a putback with 3 seconds left. Kasim Mirza fouled him while he shot, and Melano fired in the charity for the lead. He finished with 18 points. Helterbrand's desperation underhand layup missed and Batangas had their win 24 hours after losing to the Davao Occidental Tigers - Cocolife 67-57. Batanguenos climb up to 10-5 in the standings while Imus drops to 3-12. Both teams deployed famous actors in their rosters. Athletics guard Derek Ramsay was scoreless in 10 minutes of action while Khaleb Shawarma's Gerald Anderson was good for 10 points and a rebound. Topscoring for Imus was Nacpil with 20 markers. In the curtain-raiser for this main game the MPBL Executives team avenged their loss to the Dubai All-Stars from the night before with a 107-101 victory. League founder senator Manny Pacquiao led all scorers with 42 points, featuring six triples......»»

Jimuel Pacquiao could be following in father Manny s footsteps

At 40, Manny Pacquiao is definitely on the tail end of his career, and while he may still be able to compete at a high level now, eventually, the eight-division world champion will have to call it a career.  Definitely, there will never be another Manny Pacquiao, but there could be another Pacquiao to continue Manny's legacy inside the ring, and that's none other than his son Jimuel.  The 18-year old has already begun his boxing journey, winning all three of his amateur fights this year, and as his father gets ready for his title bout against Keith Thurman in Las Vegas later this month, Jimuel was able to see his dad at work in the gym.  "It feels good, I can finally watch him train, watch him spar, get a fee ideas from him," said Jimuel, who was at the Wild Card Gym during one of Manny's training sessions last week. Jimuel and the rest of the Pacquiao family recently arrived in the US to join Manny ahead of his big title bout.  "I'm trying to get as much as I can, since they're pros already," Jimuel added.  Jimuel has expresse his desire to follow his footsteps and even hopefully represent the country in International competition.  "Hopefully, it would be a big privelege to represent the Philippines if ever," he said.  If Jimuel does decided to make a career of the sweet science as well, then he may not have to look too far for a coach in his corner.  Also in the states for the Pacquiao camp is Paul Fernandez, the son of Manny's friend and trainer Buboy. Paul has been in camp from the beginning, and says that he has learned a lot seeing his dad train the Filipino boxing legend.  Could Jimuel and Paul be the second coming of the Pacquiao-Fernandes tandem? Only time will tell.  For now however, Paul says that he will be focusing on his studies, but if Jimuel asks for some help in training, he won't think twice about doing so.    H/T: Steve Angeles, ABS-CBN .....»»
