AFTER making the greatest comeback in PBA history last year, the San Miguel Beermen had a fitting follow-up in taking home another piece of history with their third straight Philippine Cup title on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Beermen asserted their mastery of the all-Filipino tournament by finishing off Ginebra, 91-85, for a 4-1 series win in the Philippine Cup Finals — becoming only the second team in the league after Talk N Text to take home the Perpetual Trophy with a third straight conquest of the conference.
