    STANLEY Pringle had 21 points to lift defending champion Indonesia Warriors to a rousing 72-63 victory over the Westports Malaysia Dragons in Game One of their Asean Basketball League semifinals series Friday night at the Mahaka Square in Jakarta.

    John Smith, a fellow Fil-American of Pringle, added 17 points, local Mario Wuysang chipped in 14, and import Steven Thomas grabbed 21 rebounds as the Warriors take a 1-0 lead in their best-of-five showdown.

    The other semis pairing saw Sports Rev Thailand Slammers stun top-seed San Miguel Beermen for a similar 1-0 lead in their own series.

    Pringle towed the Warriors to an early first quarter lead, before Smith and Wuysang converted a deuce and a triple respectively, to give the champions a 33-17 edge in the second period.

    Pringle made it a 60-36 game after an 8-0 Indonesia run in the third.

    Fil-American Justin Melton had 19 points for the Dragons, who missed the services of import Marcus Hubbard due to an illness.

    The scores:
    Indonesia (72) – Pringle 21, Smith 17, Wuysang 14, Sitepu 8, Thomas 6, Daniels 4, Canada 2, Prihantono 0, Ristanto 0, De Ruitjer 0.

    Malaysia (63) – Melton 19, Edwards 17, Tautuaa 9, Armon 8, Ng 6, Ban Sin 4, Batumalai 0, Loh 0, Satyaseelan 0.

    Quarterscores: 16-10; 38-24; 62-39; 72-63.
