    CALVIN Abueva sustained his efficient play for Alaska in its 108-100 win over Barako Bull on Saturday in the Smart Bro-PBA Philippine Cup.

    The Aces star forward recorded his fifth double-double in the all-Filipino conference with 22 points and 13 boards on top of three assists.

    Abueva thus moved up to fifth with the most double-doubles this conference, just behind June Mar Fajardo (10), Sean Anthony (7), Asi Taulava and Willie Wilson (6), and tied with Cliff Hodge with five.
