    Galent took over the coaching chores for the Beermen as Austria is put under the league's health and safety protocols.

    The 8-1 Beermen are looking to formally clinch the no. 1 seed in the playoffs with a victory over the winless Dyip.

    Gallent has been a long-time San Miguel deputy since 2011 yet, although he once called the shots for the Purefoods franchise during the 2010-11 season as the team carried the B-Meg Llamados brand.

    He's had huge success though as head coach in the amateurs, most especially in the defunct Philippine Basketball League (PBL) with the multi-titled Harbour Centre Batang Pier who he steered to a record six championships.

    The 54-year-old son of ex-pelotari George Gallent also had stint as San Sebastian coach in 2007-08.
