BOCAUE, Bulacan - The way he played, Japeth Aguilar should've worn a Santa hat and a fake beard.

He granted all of the wishes of Barangay Ginebra fans on Sunday night.

The 6-foot-9 forward provided the highlights by making shots from both inside and out as Ginebra dominated Star, 86-79, in the main offering of the PBA's Christmas Day doubleheader at the Philippine Arena.

Aguilar scored 32 points while going 5-of-5 from beyond the three-point arc as the Gin Kings put away their third win in six outings in the Philippine Cup before a holiday crowd estimated to be between 20,000 to 21,000.

Aguilar added 12 rebounds and two blocks.
