No Troy Rosario Magic for Talk ‘N Text in Game 2
Alaska Aces felt relieved that Troy Rosario lived Game 2 in silence.
Rosario who has sent Alaska to defeat in Game 1 with his high percentage three-point shooting, was well-kept under the Aces’ defensive parameter, in the Game 2 of the Alaska’s quarterfinals series against Tropang Talk ‘N Text.
The Talk ‘N Text rookie only made eight points in the game, two markers coming from the first half and six points made in the second half.
Though Rosario did not have a good shooting night, his teammates still handed him the could-have-been game-winning three for Talk ‘N Text but unfortunately missed.
Meanwhile, Rosario’s wide open opportunity at the dying seconds of the game scared Aces’ head Coach Alex Compton.
“My heart dropped to basement parking when he was open,” Compton said.
Alaska’s 85-81 victory sent them to a rubber match against Talk ‘N Text for a semifinals berth.
Meralco Bolts and Rain or Shine already booked themselves a comfortable seat in the semifinals. –Roxanne Enriquez
