      San Miguel then grabbed the opportunity and the Beermen made an import change despite the solid showing of Johnson over the past two games.

      “You cannot pass up an opportunity like this,” said San Miguel coach Leo Austria.

      Muhammad will be the Beermen’s third import, with Brandon Brown starting out for the ballclub this conference.
