Despite annihilation of Kia, Banchero says Alaska still has a lot of work to do

Alaska has now brushed off its 0-2 start in the PBA Philippine Cup and have strung together two straight wins with the most recent one in the form of a 102-65 humiliation of Kia.

With such an impressive showing, it’s safe to assume that the Aces have found their groove in the All-Filipino Conference, but guard Chirs Banchero said there’s still more work to be done.

“There’s a lot of room for us to get better,” said Banchero Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “We got to do a better job of sharing the ball and growing as a team.”

And even though the Aces registered 26 assists against Kia, Banchero said it was the team’s defense that ultimately got them the victory.

Alaska pressed the majority of the 48 minutes and got 17 steals in the process, with Banchero taking a team-high of three, while forcing the Picanto to commit 29 turnovers.
