Defense is again the key to Purefoods victory as it limited Alaska below 80 points to win 86-76, sweeping Alaska in the best of seven finals. Before the game Purefoods James Yap was named Best Player of the Conference then at the end of the games was honored as Finals MVP, which was fitting as he led Purefoods in scoring in 4 games. But its not all James Yap, its all in the teams effort and their excellent defense. It was a nice run for the Purefoods TJ Giants which went on a roller coaster ride during the elimination round, then being pushed to the limit by Rain or Shine, survive the star studded San Miguel Beermen, then sweeping the number1 team Alaska.

Purefoods also became the first team in the PBA to sweep a best of seven affair in an all Filipino tournament. Congratulations Purefoods for a job well done.

And now we wait for the import reinforced tournament.

  1. Purefoods is really fantastic. They beat the highly favored SMC in the semifinals and swept Alaska Milk 4-0 in the finals. That's a testament to the grim determination of its players to prove something to the other ball clubs teeming with veritable basketball superstars. It shows what good coaching and motivation can do to spur players to give their all game after game. Purefoods has only two marquee players in James Yap and Kerby Raymundo but the others stepped up also. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  2. Your blog is lovely the colors are really interesting, I don't remember visiting you I'll be back.
