If you’re a Barangay Ginebra fan like me, then you’ll be absolutely delighted to know that the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings bagged the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Philippine Cup last night via a thrilling, 96-94, come-from-behind victory over the San Miguel Beermen at the famed Araneta Coliseum.
Ginebra fell behind 0-2 early in the series, but they would win their next four games, with games 3 and 4 being blowouts. This makes Ginebra only the fifth PBA team to win the title after losing their first two games. Ginebra point guard Jayjay Helterbrand was adjudged Finals MVP, while Mark Caguioa won the Best Player of the Conference plum.
To coach Jong Uichico and the entire Ginebra team, congratulations! 🙂
