Standhardinger leads HK to win over Alab, countrymen

MANILA -- (UPDATED) Christian Standhardinger couldn't seem to do anything wrong in his ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) debut.

Too bad for the crowd at Mall of Asia Arena on Sunday, the 6-foot-7 center's outstanding play benefited the opposing team.

Standhardinger finished with 26 points and 14 rebounds, as Hong Kong Eastern, the team that signed him prior to being picked first in the PBA rookie draft, defeated Alab Pilipinas, 92-89.

To cap his game-long brilliance, he scored the game-winning shot -- a jumper with 18 seconds left that pushed Hong Kong's lead to 90-86.

After Ray Parks Jr.'s three-point play made it 90-89, it was Standhardinger who put the final nail on Alab's coffin with a layup for the final score.

"In a game like that, you can lose your focus, you can kind of lose your emotions, you can get frustrated but we kept working hard and we came out with the victory," Standhardinger said.
