B-Meg import Darnell Hinson made good on his word to give 100 percent on what could possibly be his last game with the Llamados.
Although troubled by domestic woes, Hinson dropped 31 points as B-Meg dumped Air21, 111-89, to complete the semifinal cast in the PBA Governors Cup Friday night at the Araneta Coliseum
“It’s a bittersweet moment for me,” said Hinson, who’s set to return to the United States Saturday to attend to a child-custody case filed by his estranged wife. “I tried to come out and play hard from the beginning.”
The Llamados’ fourth victory in eight outings eliminated the winless Express as well as Meralco and Powerade from the semifinals, where six teams carry over their records for another single round-robin.
In the second game, Powerade routed Petron, 105-81, to end its campaign on a high note.
Joe Devance added 23 points on top of six rebounds, five assists and a couple of blocks for B-Meg, which is hoping Hinson returns after the Llamados take a two-week break.
“He has to go home first and see the situation,” said Gallent. “If everything’s fine there, he can fly in for us again.”
But Gallent said Myron Allen, a 6-foot-1 NBA D-League veteran, remains on standby for the Llamados.
