November 16, 2018 – Ynares Center

PBA Semifinals News 2018: Magnolia Hotshots booted out Barangay Ginebra, 112-108 to book a Finals ticket in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup this Friday at the Ynares Center. Import Romeo Travis bucked a hamstring injury to lead the Hotshots with 50 points and 13 boards, while Ian Sangalang made 14 points and 6 rebounds.

Notes:

➤ With 10 ticks remaining in regulation, both Scottie Thompson and Joe Devance miffed their clutch trey attempts and failed to salvage Ginebra in crunch time. The Gin Kings were effectively eliminated from campaigning for a third straight title this season.

Justin Brownlee backstopped the losing Gin Kings with 32 points, 9 caroms and 7 dimes, while Japeth Aguilar chipped-in 25 buckets and 14 rebounds.

Magnolia will get a long rest as they await the other finalist between the Meralco Bolts and the Alaska Aces, who will battle in Game 4 of their semifinals series on Saturday, November 17, at the Cuneta Astrodome.
