Another come-from-behind series win, another chapter added in Barangay Ginebra’s book of legendary never-say-die stories.
Sol Mercado scored 23 points and Japeth Aguilar added 19, and Ginebra bookended Game 7 with two decisive runs to beat Star 89-76 at Mall of Asia Arena on Tuesday and advance to the PBA Philippine Cup finals.
After taking down the No. 2 seed Alaska in the quarterfinals and dispatching No. 3-ranked Star, Ginebra takes aim at the No. 1 team of the tournament for all the marbles — 3-time MVP June Mar Fajardo and the 2-time defending All-Filipino champion San Miguel.
