Khalif Wyatt played the hero’s role once more for San Miguel Alab Pilipinas after the 28-year American drained a clutch triple which gave the visiting team the lead and eventually the win over host Formosa Dreamers, 100-99, in Season 10 of the ASEAN Basketball League, Sunday at the Changhua Stadium in Taiwan.
After Dreamers World Import Anthony Tucker buried back-to-back treys to give the home team a 99-97 lead with 1:18 left on the game clock, Wyatt responded with a three of his own from the corner to give the lead back to the Philippine side. The Jimmy Alapag-mentored squad then held on to the win after Tucker missed on a three-pointer in the ensuing play.
San Miguel Alab picked up its fourth straight win to improve to 4-1, good for a share of top spot with Mono Vampire, while Formosa absorbed its 4th loss in 6 games.
Sam Deguara led the team in scoring with 20 points to go along with 9 rebounds while Nick King added 19 markers. Wyatt finished with 17 points while Jason Brickman and Lawrence Domingo chipped in 12 and 10 points, respectively.
San Miguel Alab takes a two-week break before taking on the Macau Wolf Warriors on Sunday, January 5, 2020 at a still unannounced home venue.
