Another PBA referee suspended

The PBA has suspended another referee for a lapse in officating during the Rain or Shine-Meralco Game 1 encounter, when the official waived off a made triple by Gabe Norwood in the fourth period because of a “shot clock violation.”

Ryan Reyes uncertain of suiting up for Governor’s CupTiebreaker Times PBA Pass-Through: Another referee suspended, Barroca's crazy shot, Pingris injury update    It is not yet certain if Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters shooting guard Ryan Reyes will be able to suit up for the season-ending Governors’ Cup. “I’m not sure yet,” the 6-foot backcourt gunner, who missed the entire Commissioner’s Cup due to an achilles injury, said. Reyes has career averages of 8.3 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 2.7 APG in nine seasons for the Santa Lucia Realtors and the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters.

Marc Pingris day-to-dayTiebreaker Times PBA Pass-Through: Another referee suspended, Barroca's crazy shot, Pingris injury update    Purefoods Star Hotshots forward Marc Pingris hurt his left ankle in Game 1 of the semifinals against the Tropang Texters. He finished with six points and eight rebounds in 19 minutes of action. Purefoods head coach Tim Cone told media that it is only a mild/first degree sprain so Pingris would most probably be able to return by next week.

Barroca with what might be the shot of the season

Rappler’s Jane Bracher captured the fantastic putback:

WHAT. A. CRAZY. SHOT.

Purefoods Star Hotshots guard Mark Barroca knew Denzel Bowles’ desperation heave from three-point land was going short, and immediately rushed to the shot’s landing spot for a follow-up.

Knowing there is only a second left on their shotclock, Barroca just tapped it like a hot potato and presto, shooter’s roll!

And for a comparison, NBA player Trevor Booker did this one heckuva shot with 0.2 seconds left on the game clock a few months ago:
