Gabe Freeman leads Barako Bull to Semifinals - Apr 9, 2012

Gabe Freeman
Barako Bull's hard work through the most sacred days of the Holy Week paid off.

Gabe Freeman (198-F-85, college: Costa Mesa JC) scattered 34 points and also had 19 rebounds, powering the Energy to a 106-85 victory over the Alaska Aces Easter Sunday and into the PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Ronald Tubid (186-G-81) and Willie Miller (180-PG-77) each came up with a 20-point game as Barako's efforts from Maundy Thursday to Black Saturday in practices enabled it to put an emphatic finish to the best-of-three quarterfinals series that went the distance.

As a result, the Energy lined themlseves up for a best-of-five semis duel with defending champion Talk N Text starting Tuesday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.

'Una sa lahat, gusto kong pasalamatan ang Panginoon, pero I also have to give credit to my players,' said Energy head coach Junel Baculi, in his first semis stint. 'I told them before the game that there's only one stumbling block for us to the semifinals and you deserve to be there. They responded very well.'

Baculi specifically singled out Freeman, who arrived Tuesday last week and promptly delivered 22 points and 17 rebounds in a 92-99 loss in Game 2.

The two-time Best Import awardee came in in lieu of the ineffective Reggie Okosa (208-F/C-80, agency: Top Notch Sports, college: La Salle), who was in turn a replacement for Rodney White, who had to go home to attend to his ailing father but not after averaging a conference-best 29.8 points and 13.2 rebounds in the five games he played.

'You cannot ask anything more of him,' said Baculi of Freeman. 'He flew in straight from Canada, has recovered from jetlag and now gives you 34 points and 19 rebounds.'

The blowout loss was hardly expected of Alaska, which seemed to have gained momentum following the way it bounced back from a 90-103 loss in the series opener.

Yet the Aces were basically outplayed since the early parts of the second quarter, an aftermath of what Baculi claimed was the excellent way his charges defended the likes of Cyrus Baguio, LA Tenorio (178-G-84) and Mark Baracael.

'Those three combined for almost 60 points in Game 2 and really hurt us,' noted Baculi. 'Tonight we limited them to about 30 and that's a big difference.'

Adam Parada led the Aces with 18 points and five assists. But he was limited to a personal conference-low seven rebounds and was already sitting out along with Baguio and Tenorio inside the last five minutes of the game, when the Energy had raced to leads of 23 points, the last at 99-76.

Also a victim of Barako's tenacious gang-rebounding and vicious boxing out tactics was Sonny Thoss, who was held to just six points, his second lowest output in the tourney, as well as a personal season-low two rebounds.

Freeman was the anchor of it all.

Freeman scored seven points in each of the last two quarters but the rout was already being paved while he was taking a four-minute rest between the third and fourth.

In that span, Barako was limiting Alaska to just one try at the basket and was quicker at getting to loose balls. The Energy were also playing more cohesive and that showed in the way they managed to unleash one run after another.

Miller had five straight points and Freeman's substitute, Leo Najorda, scored on a follow up to make it a 78-63 count.

Najorda would go on to score eight more points in the final canto and joined hands with Freeman in stretching their lead to 97-74. (NC)


The scores:

BARAKO 106 - Freeman 34, Tubid 20, Miller 20, Seigle 12, Najorda 10, Pennisi 3, Arboleda 3, Allado
2, Pena 2, Salvador 0.

ALASKA 85 - Parada 18, Baguio 14, Reyes 13, Baracael 12, Custodio 9, Tenorio 9, Thoss 6, Eman 2,
Gonzales 2, Salamat 0, Gelig 0.

Quarterscores: 25-24, 55-42, 78-63, 106-85

Charles Rhodes gets MVP of the Week award for Filipino PBA - 4 days ago
Experienced American Charles Rhodes (203-F/C-85) had a very impressive game in the last round for SM Beermen and that's him to receive a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 5. The 31-year old power forward had a double-double of 20 points and eighteen rebounds, while his team outclassed Mahindra (#11, 1-6) with 29-point margin 109-80. SM Beermen is placed at 7th position in Filipino PBA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this seas...   [read more]

Tim Cone
PBA Coach being recommended for Knicks staff - 6 days ago
The name of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings coach Tim Cone was being floated to the National Basketball Association's (NBA) New York Knicks president Phil Jackson to be part of the teams' coaching staff. The most accomplished coach in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) with 19 titles under his belt including two grand slams was recommended by American sportswriter and book author Ronald Lazenby to the Knicks due to his deep understanding of running the Triangle (Triple Post) O...   [read more]

Greg Smith
Smith number one in Philippines for round 4 - 10 days ago
American Center Greg Smith (208-C-91) had a great game in the last round for Blackwater, receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 4. The 25-year old player had a double-double of 40 points and 19 rebounds, while his team beat Globalport (1-4) 118-113. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings. Blackwater is placed at 9th position in Filipino PBA. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such...   [read more]
