ICYMI: Defense wins game for Alaska: Meets Meralco in Semifinals
Alaska Aces banked on their solid defense to secure the last semifinals slot in the 2016 OPPO PBA Commissioner’s Cup.
Aces dominated the Tropang Talk ‘N Text, 99-81, and earned a seat at the final four.
Rob Dozier made 20 points and 14 rebounds while Calvin Abueva had his own double-double outing with 18 points and 10 boards.
“We talked about, well, coming to this game and I said our defense have to be near perfect,” Aces head Coach Alex Compton said.
Alaska did not disappoint their Coach and limited the Talk ‘N Text scoring to only 38% from the field.
Compton said that the great defense his players showed in the Game 3 of their quarterfinals showdown against the Talk ‘N Text made him really proud of his team and of his players.
The Aces is set to face Jimmy Alapag and the Meralco Bolts in the best-of-five semifinals series.
