Viv Manuel was his usual prolific self Friday. It didn’t hurt either that Alaska’s other players were all too willing to lend the much-needed support.

As a result, the Aces completed a 114-91 drubbing of hapless Phoenix at the Cuneta Astrodome and grabbed the coveted No. 2 spot going to the PBA Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals.

Comebacking Diamon Simpson, Chris Banchero, Ping Exciminiano and Simon Enciso also did their part in helping Alaska complete the wire-to-wire win and finish the eliminations with an 8-3 slate.

TNT, which plays sure elims topnotcher Rain or Shine Saturday, could tie Alaska’s record but would lose out in the quotient tiebreaker due to the Aces’ 110-100 win over the KaTropa last May 13.
