Alaska raring to cement place in quarters, NLEX eager to snap out of 3-game skid

ALASKA aims to formalize its claim to a top four slot in the PBA Governors Cup quarterfinals and has two cracks at it.

The Aces intend to get the job done right on Friday when they take on an NLEX side spurred by its own goals at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.

A third straight win and eighth in 10 games would assure Alaska inclusion in the magic circle, which carries with it a win-once advantage over a lower-ranked squad in the last eight.

For its part, NLEX is gunning for a win that would snap it out of a three-game slide and assure it of at least a playoff berth for one of the last quarters seat. The former reason is what coach Yeng Guiao is focused on.
