San Miguel Alab Pilipinas holds off Hong Kong Eastern to improve to 6-3

Jeremiah Gray rejected Hong Kong Eastern’s Jon Siu’s potential game-winning triple as San Miguel Alab Pilipinas averted a massive 19-point collapse to book a 77-76 win over the home squad, Thursday night in Season 10 of the ASEAN Basketball League at the Southorn Stadium.

The clutch defensive gem by the high-flying Fil-Am guard was his 3rd for the match to go along with 11 points, 5 boards and 5 assists as the Philippine representative to the regional meet rebounded from a horrible loss to Singapore to improve to 6-3 which is good for 2nd spot in the team standings behind Mono Vampire’s pace-setting 8-3 record.

Nick King led the Jimmy Alapag-mentored squad with 24 points and 7 rebounds while newcomer Prince Williams debuted with 14 markers to go along with 6 boards and 4 assists.

Sam Deguara added 14 points and 7 boards while Jason Brickman finished with 2 points on a measly 1-for-9 shooting but had a game-high 16 assists.

Alab was able to establish a 19-point advantage with about 3 minutes into the third period but a 30-point barrage by Hong Kong reduced the deficit to just 3 heading into the final frame.

Brandis Raley-Ross led the home team with 33 points while fellow World Imports Brandon Costner and Michael Holyfield chipped in 19 and 13 markers, respectively.

Alab returns to action on Sunday, January 26 and will take on league-leading Mono Vampire at the Caloocan Sports Complex.

The scores:

San Miguel Alab Pilipinas 77 — King 24, Williams 14, Deguara 12, Gray 11, Vigil 5, Heading 3, Brickman 2, Domingo 2, Rosser 2, Caracut 0.

Hong Kong Eastern 76 — Raley-Ross 33, Costner 19, Holyfield 13, Siu 8, Guinchard 2, Ng 1, Xu 0.

Quarterscores: 23-14, 45-30, 63-60, 77-76.
