What’s bugging Alaska?

While all eyes in the PBA Philippine Cup are, as usual, on powerhouses San Miguel Beer and Barangay Ginebra, one traditional heavyweight has been getting attention the wrong way—by struggling to get over the hump for quite some time now.

Alaska, a team rich with championship heritage, has been fumbling quite a bit and needs a lot of catching up to do in order to return to the list of the PBA’s elite teams—and in contention for the league’s crown jewel.

After two straight losses to open up their Philippine Cup campaign—losses that have come on the heels of two truly forgettable conferences—the Aces try to regroup against the Meralco Bolts at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao.

Coach Alex Compton emphasized the fact that “we have no opportunities to give away” when the Aces take the Big Dome floor at 7 p.m. against the Bolts.

“I know we have had a tough run, but I just love my players,” Compton said as he asked his charges to always keep the sense of urgency present in every game. “We haven’t played a good game yet.”
