Alaska wasted little time yanking Columbian Dyip back down to earth.
With Vic Manuel and Antonio Campbell taking their usual places as spearheads of a decisive attack, the Aces met little trouble in fashioning a smashing 134-103 victory over the Columbian Dyip Friday in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Manuel sat out the final quarter but still wound up with 26 points while Campbell added 22 on top of 13 rebounds despite foul trouble as Alaska used a searing second quarter attack to blow the game wide open right there.
The difference even got stretched to as much as 43 points early in the fourth period before the Aces cruised to their second straight win that jacked their record to 2-1 overall.
The loss is a numbing one for Columbian Dyip, which went into the game with two blowout victories against a loss and was expected to engage Alaska in one grind-out battle.
