At one point in their careers, Jervy Cruz and Larry Fonacier were two of the most feared amateurs in local basketball.

Cruz played for the UST Growling Tigers in the UAAP, leading the Espaa quintet to its last taste of championship glory in 2006.

Fonacier, for his part, was a vital cog in the 2002 edition of the Ateneo Blue Eagles. His key block at the end of Game 1 against Mac Cardona has been immortalized as one of the most memorable images in the history of the UAAP Finals.

When both guys went up to the pro ranks, they were highly touted, but neither has really reached the top level that many of their peers have.

Cruz has always been a blessed inside operator. His combination of footwork and positioning is something many other pro bigs havent been able to master. Despite this, his size has always hampered his potential. At a generous 64, Cruz is hardly the most imposing presence on the hardwood. When ranged against similarly-sized frontliners, Cruz can easily hold his own, but when measured up against much bigger foes, Cruz usually struggles.

It was good, then, that against the bigger Jason Deutchman and Rabeh Al-Hussaini, Cruz accounted well for himself. His double-double production helped the Painters win over Global Port in spite of ace gunner Jeff Chans anemic shooting night. Because of Cruzz heroics, Coach Yeng Guiaos squad is now at 3-1.

The only team the Painters trail is Talk N Text, which relied heavily on the hot hand of Fonacier to subdue the erstwhile unbeaten San Mig Coffee Mixers.

Fonacier led all scorers in the Texters fourth straight victory, waxing hot from long range as TNT remains the only undefeated team in the tournament. The Ateneo de Manila alum, fresh from his first tour of duty with the senior NT about a month ago, connected on four of his six trey attempts, while also grabbing 7 rebounds. Prior to this game, Fonacier averaged just 11.7ppg while shooting just 41% from the field. He was also making good on only 17% of his attempts from rainbow country. Needless to say, he picked a good time to get hot, and, because of it, the Texters remain flawless.

Game Recaps:

Jervy Cruz scored a career-high 22 points along with 16 rebounds to help Rain or Shine past GlobalPort, 94-83, in PBA Philippine Cup action Saturday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo City.

The Elasto Painters were holding a precarious 84-79 lead with three minutes left in the game before rattling off a 6-0 run to put the game away.

Cruz led seven players with at least eight points for Rain or Shine, which won its third game in four outings. GlobalPort suffered its fourth loss in five games, which relegated the Batang Pier to the bottom of the standings.

Rain or Shine won despite getting just 13 points from Jeff Chan, who had averaged 26.7 points coming into the game.

Si Jeff, hindi maganda yung laro ngayon, kaya isa-isa kaming nag-step up, said Cruz.

Willie Miller, who scored 33 points in GlobalPorts victory in its last outing, was limited to just 10 points.

GlobalPort rookies Jason Deutchman and AJ Mandani led the fight for the Batang Pier, scoring 18 and 17 points, respectively.

Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao pointed to the victory as a boost as the Elasto Painters head into one of the toughest stretches in their schedule. They face San Mig Coffee on Wednesday in a rematch of the last seasons Governors Cup Finals before taking on Talk N Text next Saturday in Victorias City, Negros Occidental.

This is a crucial eight-day stretch for us, said Guiao. How well we do in our next two games might well define how were going to fare in this conference.

ROS 94- Cruz 22, Chan 13, Matias 11, Quinahan 11, Norwood 9, Tang 8, arana 8, Rodriguez 6, Belga 4, Ibanes 2
GLO 83- Deutchman 18, Mandani 17, Guevarra 13, Miller 10, Al Hussaini 7, Vanlandingham 6, Manuel 5, Antonio 3, Lingganay 2, Cruz 2, Yee 0, Adducul 0
QS: 27-24, 46-42, 70-63, 94-83


And then there was one.

The Talk N Text Tropang Texters squandered an early 17-point lead before escaping the San Mig Coffee Mixers, 85-74, Saturday at the Ynares Center to remain the only undefeated team in the PBA Philippine Cup.

Larry Fonacier sizzled for 26 points, including a key three-pointer that kicked off a late 14-2 run that preserved the fourth straight victory for the Tropang Texters.

San Mig Coffee, which missed star forward Marc Pingris because of an ankle injury last Sunday against Petron, suffered its first loss in three games.

Fonacier, who also had seven rebounds, and led five Talk N Text players in double figures. Jayson Castro had 16 points, Ryan Reyes added 12, Kelly Williams chipped in 11, and Ranidel De Ocampo posted 10.

Talk N Text began the game with a 26-9 run midway through the first quarter en route to a 52-41 halftime lead.

But the Mixers fought back furiously after the break, and Mark Barrocas fastbreak layup gave San Mig Coffee a 65-64 lead to end the third quarter.

Another Barroca layup gave the Mixers a 67-64 lead to open the fourth period, and the two teams battled in a nip-and-tuck affair through most of the fourth quarter.

A three-pointer by James Yap, who scored 18 points, gave San Mig Coffee its last taste of the lead, 72-71, midway through the fourth quarter.

Two plays later, Fonacier hit his key three-pointer that started Talk N Texts game-ending run.

TNT 85- Fonacier 26, Castro 16, Reyes 12, Williams 11, De Ocampo 10, Peek 6, Dillinger 2, Carey 2, Gamalinda 0, Alvarez 0, Ferriols 0, Alapag 0
SMC 74- Yap 18, De Ocampo 12, Simon 11, Devance 10, Barroca 8, Reavis 5, Villanueva 4, Gonzales 4, Ramos 2
QS: 32-20, 52-41, 64-65, 85-74
