SAN Miguel Alab Pilipinas goes for its sixth straight victory on Wednesday night when it faces Mono Vampire Basketball Club on Wednesday night in the Asean Basketball League.
Gametime is at 8 p.m. at the Baliuag Star Arena in Bulacan.
Alab stretched its streak to five when it beat the Singapore Slingers at the OCBC Arena.
The San Miguel-backed squad (8-4) is back home exactly a week after beating Chong Son Kung Fu in overtime in their first-ever win at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex.
Alab is only half-a-game behind Mono Vampire, and a win will vault the Philippine squad in third place.
“Less than two months ago, we were dead last and I thought my coaching career was over,” said San Miguel Alab Pilipinas coach Jimmy Alapag, referring to the team’s woeful start after going 0-3.
“But these guys have worked so hard to climb out of that and it wasn’t easy,” said Alapag.
Justin Brownlee, Renaldo Balkman, Bobby Ray Parks and Joshua Urbiztondo has been getting solid support, from the offensive end to defense, hustle, and the other little things.
“It’s been a collective effort to get us the best possible position to win basketball games,” said Alapag.
Alab is now in a good position to improve on its rank in the team standings with Mono Vampire in close third with a 9-4 card.
The Thailand-based squad is also on a roll, having won three straight games after their defeat against Alab last January.
