Unstoppable Meralco strikes down Alaska for share of lead

Meralco banked on its superior firepower to send Alaska crashing back to earth Friday night in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Araneta Coliseum.

Led by the newly acquired Mike Tolomia, the Bolts dealt the Aces a crushing 106-78 blow to snap Alaska’s three-game win streak.

Tolomia, recently acquired by Meralco from Rain or Shine, fired 24 points on perfect 6-of-6 three-point shooting to give the Bolts a share of the lead with Barangay Ginebra with 7 wins and 2 defeats.

Import Durham added 26 points to go with his 18 rebounds while Baser Amer chipped in 17 markers. Chris Newsome and new addition Ranidel de Ocampo had 10 points each.

"The players came out and played really, really well... It was a good all-around effort for the entire team," said Meralco coach Norman Black.

"I thought Mike Tolomia was really great in the first half. AD (Allen Durham) was steady as ever throughout the game especially off the board, he grabbed a lot of rebounds tonight."
