Who is the best point guard in the Philippines today?

Anybody can make a good case about guys like Jimmy Alapag, Jayson Castro, LA Tenorio, and Alex Cabagnot, but the guy on whom Im putting my money (at least for now) is none other than former Gilas starting playmaker and current ace of Alaska, JV Casio.

Right now, hes the top point guard in the PBA in terms of player efficiency (as calculated in Look at these numbers:

Player Efficiency & Statistical Points:
JV Casio (ALA)33.0230.4315.4ppg, 4.4apg, 3.3rpg, 1.1spg, 41%3pt
Jayson Castro (TNT)32.5629.6716.8ppg, 2.8rpg, 2.8apg, 48%3pt
Alex Cabagnot (PET)31.3026.1413.4ppg, 6.0apg, 2.7rpg, 1.4spg, 35%3pt
LA Tenorio (GIN)25.9220.3310.0ppg, 5.2apg, 4.7rpg, 1.0spg, 26%3pt
Jimmy Alapag (TNT)24.8424.339.8ppg, 5.0apg, 2.3rpg, 42%3pt

Jayson Castro is tops in scoring and three-point shooting.

Alex Cabagnot is tops in assists and steals.

LA Tenorio is tops in rebounds.

But JV Casio is the best, most polished, all-around playmaker.


And, yeah, he was the biggest reason the Aces climbed out of a double-digit hole in the fourth quarter against erstwhile unbeaten Talk N Text last night.

The big questions, of course, is can the former Green Archer keep up his high level of play?

Game Recaps:

Air 21 resurrected its A-game on All Souls Day, spoiling what could have been a post-birthday celebration for Petron coach Olsen Racela.

Using a different starting unit, the Express grounded the Boosters for a surprisingly easy 97-76 triumph on Friday night at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Its one of those games where certain teams will have this kind of game, but its a long season, said Air 21 coach Franz Pumaren.

Still, I have to give credit to my players as we were able to defend well against Petron.

Air 21 had only won one game coming into the match against the powerhouse Petron squad, which was on a two-game winning streak.

But the Express kept the Boosters at bay from start to finish, neutralizing Petrons running game which was on display in its previous outing against the GlobalPort Batang Pier last Friday.

I was watching Petron and I found out theyre good whenever they have the ball and they would continue pushing. But we paid extra attention on their running game, which they used against GlobalPort.

Mark Isip, playing the starting power forward role for the Express, finished with 22 points and seven rebounds while Rob Reyes, playing for the first time against the team that traded him in the offseason, came off the bench to score 17 points and grab six rebounds in what was easily his finest game of the season.

Weve finally found the right starting unit. Our coaching staff made very good preparation and scouted Petron pretty well. We were able to maximize some mismatches. Were also a different Air 21 today, playing more aggressive and outworking our opponents. We had an advantage as we had five days off, said Pumaren.

The Express were able to post leads of 25 points in the fourth quarter, as Petron simply had no answer against the energized Air 21 side.

The Boosters were led by Arwind Santos 15 points and 14 rebounds, but the team shot only 34.2% from the field (26-of-76), and were beaten by the Express on second chance points, 15 to six.

A21 97- Isip 22, Reyes 17, Custodio 12, Canaleta 12, Omolon 11, Baclao 9, Wilson 5, Taha 4, Arboleda 3, Ritualo 2, Atkins 0
PET 76- Santos 15, Lutz 13, Cabagnot 11, Washington 9, Mallari 6, Yeo 6, Lassiter 5, Lanete 4, Pena 4, Miranda 3, Sison 0, Duncil 0
QS: 34-23, 48-42, 79-58, 97-76


JVee Casio caught fire, and not even the vaunted Talk N Text Tropang Texters could stop him.

The sophomore guard played one of the finest games of his young career, scoring 12 points in the final three minutes including the go-ahead layup that propelled the Aces to a hard-earned 94-92 triumph over erstwhile unbeaten Talk N Text in their Philippine Cup match Friday night at the SMART-Araneta Coliseum.

Casios heroics came at a perfect time. In a minute-long stretch late in the game, he scored 10 straight points three three-pointers, including one four-point play to bring the Aces back against the Tropang Texters.

Alaska trailed by as much as 12 points, 83-71, in the fourth quarter, before Casio, Cyrus Baguio, and Calvin Abueva scored the final 23 points for the Aces.

Casios last basket, a driving scoop shot to elude the long arms of Kelly Williams put the Aces ahead, 94-92 with two seconds left in the game.

I have to give it to JVee. The game was out of hand, but he simply refused to lose, said Alaska coach Luigi Trillo, whose team notched its fifth straight victory to improve its win-loss record to 5-2.

He made us look good. Games like this one builds character.

The Aces still needed to make a stop in Talk N Texts final play. Jimmy Alapag, normally the teams go-to-guy at the clutch, was assigned to do the inbound from the sidelines. Larry Fonacier came off a screen and got the pass. He was perfectly squared for a short jumper but his shot went in and out as time expired. The Tropang Texters perfect record was finally blemished by the resilient Aces for the first time in seven games this conference.

It was the first win by Alaska over Talk N Text since the 2010 Fiesta Conference.

ALA 94- Casio 25, Baguio 16, Abueva 14, Thoss 13, Jazul 8, Baracael 6, Hontiveros 6, Espinas 4, Reyes 2, Dela Cruz 0, Belasco 0
TNT 92- Alapag 17, De Ocampo 15, Reyes 13, Williams 13, Peek 11, Castro 10, Fonacier 5, Gamalinda 3, Aban 3, Carey 2
QS: 29-20, 52-45, 68-73, 94-92

Jayjay Helterbrand postpones retirement, stays with Ginebra for another title run - 13 hours ago

Barangay Ginebra San Miguel veteran guard Jayjay Helterbrand is back for at least another year with the Gin Kings.

LNBP newcomer Garzas de Plata Hidalgo strengthened their roster with addition of 29-year old American power forward Wayne Chism (206-111kg-87, college: Tennessee).

The victory ended an eight-year title drought for the Kings, who last won in the 20...   [read more]
