It’s easier said than been done.
Basketball is a lot of surprises, upsets, and a miracle come back.
The Aces is going to face the Colombian Dyip this 4:30 pm the first game of the conference. They are heavily favored to win with a simple reason they had a depth talent.
Talent win games most of the time. Alaska had talent that Colombian had no match. With CJ Perez the most consistent player in Gilas Pilipinas, he had one of the worst defense. The lack of leadership the team that is still searching for what are they really meant to the league. Even they had a good import the player around him wasn’t enough.
Alaska was an upgrade from the last Conference. It’s only Justine Watts will questions how consistent he is. But the Aces had Chris Banchero, Vic Manuel, Jeron Teng and a bunch of veterans to rely on. They had shooters like Simon Enciso and Jayvee Casio. Anybody from Alaska was a matchup well with the Dyip.
It will likely a little rattle on the first few minutes of the games with Jeff Cariaso bringing the new system but they can adjust.
I had no idea how the Colombian will beat the Aces. Maybe their import is a beast who can dominate the games but if not it will be a win for the Aces.
