SMB coach Agustin takes a shot at PBA history

He was a member of the last San Miguel Beer team that won a grandslam in the Philippine Basketball Association, a member of the champion squad Pampanga Dragons in the short-lived Metropolitan Basketball Association and also a part of the first Red Bull champion squad when he was making a comeback in the country’s premier pro league.

Already a proven winner during his playing days, Ato Agustin brought with him his successful ways all the way to coaching.

Four championships in his coaching debut — the Philippine Basketball League, the NCAA men’s basketball, the CHED Palaro and the Filoil Flying V Pre-Season tournament — were enough proof Agustin is indeed no stranger to winning.

Now the pride of Pampanga will take a shot at PBA history as he tries to become the first coach to win five championships in his coaching debut beginning Saturday’s series opener.

Agustin’s Beermen will face the Talk N Text Tropang Texters in Game One of the best-of-seven championship series in Victorias City. - Rey Joble, GMANews.TV
