Alas sets sight on NLEX, son Kevin with 1st Phoenix win out of way

ANTIPOLO — It has been 16 years since Louie Alas tasted a victory as a head coach in the PBA.

Winning in his second game at the helm for the Fuel Masters on Wednesday, a 125-102 triumph over Kia at Ynares Center, the congenial mentor couldn’t help but reminisce on the old days.

“It’s been a long time. I know I’m younger then,” he said with a chuckle as he nabbed his first conquest in the pro league since steering Talk ’N Text to an 86-76 win over Tanduay at Cuneta Astrodome.

The feeling of responsibility, though, hasn’t changed for Alas as he couldn’t really savor his victory as he has his eyes set on the team’s next game.

“All I’m thinking of is NLEX,” he said of the Fuel Masters’ next assignment on January 7. “You can’t relax here because every team is a strong team. [NLEX] has a deep lineup and we almost have the same system offensively, run-and-gun. So we just have to play non-stop defense against them.”
