Barako Bull squeaks past San Mig Coffee in PBA



MANILA, Philippines — Danny Seigle uncorked a crucial trey as Barako Bull squeezed past import-less San Mig Coffee, 79-75, Friday night at the 2013 PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Barako Bull managed to dispatch the Mixers, who missed the services of import Matt Rogers, but consultant Rajko Toroman admitted the squad still have kinks to iron out.

“Offensively, we got a new system. But we need time to put everything in the right spot,” said Toroman in the post game interview.

Seigle, who finished with eight, scored his only field goal of the night from downtown with 30.4 seconds left and gave the undermanned Energy enough cushion, 76-71.

Brock Evans finished with 18 points and 12 boards while Josh Urbiztondo added 17 points and nine rebounds and Jonas Villanueva 16 points and five dimes.

The hardworking Brock drilled in back-to-back buckets with under two minutes to play which put the Energy in the lead for good.

San Mig Coffee opened its title bid in a losing cause, and even without an import, its big men still ruled on the glass, 48-40.

James Yap finished with 19 points, including a clutch trey with 5.1 ticks left which trimmed the Energy’s lead down to two. But the Mixers, though, ran out of time.
