Alaska allowed Star to creep back into the game and although they did their best to recover, there was no stopping the Hotshots after they gained momentum as they grabbed a 102-98 victory, Wednesday night at the Cuneta Astrodome.

Ratliffe struggled in the first half along with the rest of his team but he came alive in the second half and in the overtime period as he finished with a monstrous stat line with 35 points, 28 rebounds, and 5 blocks.

The Star import only had 3 assists in the game but his willingness to pass off the double team allowed the other Hotshots to share the ball and look for the best possible shot.

Paul Lee added 18 points in the game while Melton added 12 markers, all from the three-point range.
