San Miguel Beer’s Grand Slam bid is off to a sizzling start.
The Beermen were all over a depleted Alaska team Sunday at Sta. Rosa, Laguna, dominating for a win in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup.
After giving up 29 points in the opening period, the Beermen held the Aces to just 30 points in the next two to break the game wide open.
With a strong second half, San Miguel was able to lead by as many as 35 points before rolling to a 2-0 start for the conference.
Imporpt Dez Wells led all scorers with 25 points on top of seven rebounds.
Terrence Romeo came off the bench and added 18 points. June Mar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, Arwind Santos, and Kelly Nabong were all good for 10 points each.
Alaska dropped to 0-3 with a second lopsided loss.
The Aces played without import Justin Watts, who was unfortunately injured in practice the day before. Jvee Casio led the Alaska offense with 16 points in the defeat.
