    ALASKA coach Alex Compton could have a dilemma he’s glad to have once Rob Dozier gets healthy to play in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup.

    The Aces tapped Shane Edwards as a temporary replacement for Dozier, who’s out with a plantar fasciitis injury.

    But the stand-in import is making a case for permanent status after making a promising debut for the Aces with 36 points, 20 boards, three assists, one steal, and one block in the team’s 108-100 win over Tropang TNT on Wednesday night.

    “I really hope Shane gives me a hard time,” Compton said. “I hope he gives me a problem.

    “But we love Rob,” he was quick to add. “We signed Rob. I hope we win every game with Shane. Then let me deal with that problem.”

    Asked if he will give Compton a dilemma, Edwards would rather focus on the present.

    “I don’t know,” the 28-year-old journeyman said with a smile. “As of right now, I’m just here to do my job. I hope Rob gets a speedy recovery.”

    “When I’m here, I’ll just try to do everything I can to help the club win,” he added.

    Edwards took little time to adjust to the local style of play as he towed the Aces in their come-from-behind win over the Texters.

    “Everywhere you go, there’s going to be some adjustment,” he said. “Luckily, I was out there able to adjust fast because of my teammates.”
