PBA: Barangay Ginebra, Talk ‘N Text hold key to post-season seeding

ADRIAN DY, GMA NEWS March 26, 2012 5:21pm

The Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings and the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters will battle separate foes on Wednesday, at the Araneta Coliseum, as the two squads look to book automatic semifinals berths in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

But more than the two squads will be affected by their victories or losses. Four different scenarios loom large, with additional one-game playoffs for seeding purposes looking like a necessity. Is your favorite team locked in, out of the picture entirely, or hanging by a thread? That all depends on who wins on Wednesday.

The games slated for the last day of the elimination round starts with the Air21 Express colliding with the Barangay Ginebra Kings at 5:15 p.m., while the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters duel with the Petron Blaze Boosters afterwards, at 7:30 p.m. When the dust settles, what happens next?

Scenario 1: The Barangay Ginebra Kings defeat the Air21 Express; the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters defeat the Petron Blaze Boosters




In the Commissioner’s Cup, playoffs will be held for teams battling for the #2 and #6 positions, with the PBA quotient (divide a team’s total points against the other affected squads, by the team’s total points allowed against those same teams) being used to break three-or-more team ties.

Both those rules come into play here. Talk ‘N Text books the first ticket to the semifinals, getting a first round bye, while B-MEG and Ginebra have to duke it out to join the Tropang Texters. The loser of that playoff joins the Alaska Aces and the Barako Bull Energy as the quarterfinalists, with the sixth seed requiring a playoff as well, between the Meralco Bolts and the Powerade Tigers, the two squads who have a lower quotient than the Energy.

Regardless of the scenario, these playoffs for seeding purposes will take place on Friday, March 30, at the Cuneta Astrodome.

Scenario 2: The Barangay Ginebra Kings defeat the Air21 Express; the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters lose to the Petron Blaze Boosters




This scenario sees three teams finish with a 6-3 record. Using the quotient, B-MEG moves ahead, claiming the direct route to the semifinals. That leaves TNT and BGK to duel for the other spot.

Like the first case, Alaska and Barako Bull make it into the quarterfinals, with Meralco and Powerade fighting for the sixth seed again. Though Petron is 4-5, they have the lowest quotient and are automatically eliminated.

Scenario 3: The Barangay Ginebra Kings lose to the Air21 Express; the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters defeat the Petron Blaze Boosters




This scenario has Talk ‘N Text as the clear victors, with B-MEG claiming the second seed. Both those squads get a break to recharge while the quarterfinalists slug it out.

Two of those quarterfinals slots go to Alaska and Ginebra, with Powerade making it this time as the 4-5 squad. Meralco and Barako Bull face each other for the last spot in the post-season, while Air21 just misses out, thanks to the quotient rule.

Scenario 4: The Barangay Ginebra Kings lose to the Air21 Express; the Talk ‘N Text Tropang Texters lose to the Petron Blaze Boosters



In the final scenario, Talk ‘N Text and B-MEG tie with 6-3 records, but the defending champions claim the overall number one seed, thanks to a superior quotient. Alaska and Ginebra come next, followed by Powerade, and once again Meralco and Barako Bull will fight for the right to be ranked six and make the quarterfinals.

Though Petron and Air21 both possess 4-5 records, their quotients just aren’t up to snuff and they get eliminated.- KBK, GMA News
