Alaska bucked the absence of Calvin Abueva and a double-digit deficit in the first half to defeat GlobalPort, 109-103, Saturday for its fifth straight win in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Vic Manuel, import Antonio Campbell and Chris Banchero did most of the damage in the second half surge that saw the Aces come back from being down 54-39 in the second quarter and 59-50 at the break to produce a hard-fought victory in the Petron Saturday Special.

Manuel scored 22 points, Campbell had 18 points, 18 rebounds and six blocks and Banchero added 19 points, five rebounds and seven assists for the Aces, who tied idle TNT KaTropa at 5-1.

The Aces played without Abueva, who Compton said hadn’t showed up since the All-Star break to deal with a personal matter.
