All Alaska needed was one strong quarter. The Aces started off the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup on a high note, overpowering Columbian Sunday at the MOA Arena, 111-98. Alaska dominated the third, outscoring the Dyip, 34-13, to completely turn the game around in their favor.

We have a nice run of 4 games ?in 10 days?, to get one is good,” he added. After giving up 54 points in the first half, including 31 in teh second quarter, the Aces tightened things up in the third, limiting the Dyip to only 13 markers. Alaska controlled the game from then on, taking its largest lead of the night at 20 points, 89-69, before cruising for the win.

Chris Banchero added 20 points off the bench and Simon Enciso was good for another 19 in a starting role. For the Dyip, it was Kyle Barone that led the way with 30 points and 22 rebounds.

PBA: Aces get a second “coach” in import Chris Daniels

Alaska may not have the most physically-imposing import in the 2019 PBA Commisisoner’s Cup, but the Aces may have the smartest one. Head coach Alex Compton was raving about the basketball IQ of his new import in Chris Daniels, saying he acts like a second coach on the floor for the Aces. That could prove crucial to Alaska as the team looks to have another strong run with a veteran reinforcement just like they did with Mike Harris in last season’s Governors’ Cup. “He’s like a coach, he’s one of the smartest guys that I’ve been around,” Compton said of Daniels. “He thinks like a coach, as a player. Having a brain and a skill set like he has is great,” he added. For Daniels, he says he still have more things to learn. He’ll be tested as he looks to guide the Aces in a crucial opening stretch where they’ll have four games in less than two weeks. How he adjust on the fly could dictate how strong — or poor — Alaska’s start is to this conference. “That's a great compliment from coach but I still have a lot to learn. I'm relatively new to this so I have of ton of stuff to learn about the PBA,” he said. “But while I'm on the floor, I'm going to help my guys anyway I possibly can. If I see something that's going to help them and help our team, I'm going to say something about it,” Daniels added. In his PBA debut, Daniels gave a strong effort and finished with 25 points and 16 rebounds. “We just got to take it one game at a time. We can't gauge the whole season or our next game off of this one game,” he said. “We got to live in the present and live in the moment. We lived in this moment, this moment is over. We got to start preparing for next game,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
