Cory Jefferson commandeered the early barrage for Alaska as it held off pesky Mahindra, 98-92, and nabbed its third win in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup Wednesday at Mall of Asia Arena.

The high-scoring import was at it again, firing 26 of his 30 points in the first half while hauling down 11 rebounds as the Aces established early control and led by as much as 18 in the third period.

Calvin Abueva added 17 markers, six boards, and two assists, while Sonny Thoss got 11 points and two rebounds in the win as their side moved to a 3-0 card.

“Good start. Cory got going early and it helps when your import’s on fire early,” said coach Alex Compton. – INQUIRER.net
