NorthPort continued its amazing climb back to playoff contention, taking down struggling Alaska 94-84, Wednesday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
Batang Pier stars Sean Anthony and Stanley Pringle combined for all but three of the team’s points in the penultimate period to hack out the lopsided win and keep alive its drive for a place in the quarterfinal round of the 2019 PBA Philippine Cup.
After seeing their 11-point lead disappear in the blink of an eye, the Fil-Am duo took matters into their own hands to put the game safely away from the Aces.
“It was a total team effort, pero exceptional iyung dalawa, Sean Anthony and Stanley Pringle,” said Batang Pier coach Pido Jarencio.
“But everybody did their share. Ready to play naman lahat talaga,” added the visually elated mentor.
