The Aces are looking to make a quick bounce back game and solidify its top four position after got defeated by one of the league leaders, the Magnolia Hotshots Pambansang Manok while the Columbian Dyip will make an attempt to break a victory this conference.
The top four slot of the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup is currently congested and picking up more wins is what on the minds of the coaches of those squads.
Finishing as one of the top four teams will give them a twice-to-beat advantage against the bottom four ball-clubs when playoffs starts.
The Columbian Dyip is still winless this conference after eight tries. Although having poor performance, Alaska head coach still sees them as a dangerous team.
“After a loss against a really tough Magnolia team, we need to bounce back and play well against dangerous Columbian,” said Compton on the eve of the match.
“Their games have been mostly close and they were even leading in so many of their games and they have really been a dangerous pick-and-roll team,” added Compton.
“Defensively, we need to be at our finest and I am looking for that defensive mindset from our players.”
Jerramy King was their leading scorer against their last outing versus the NorthPort Batang Pier with his 29 points, 8 rebounds and 4 steals while his partner Rashawn McCarthy added 16 markers.
