With new imports in tow, Alab looks to get back on track

With Ray Parks Jr. at the forefront of the attack, all Alab Pilipinas needed to legitimately contend in the 2016 Asean Basketball League was someone to hold down the fort down low.
They got just that, two of them in fact.
Six-foot-11 James Hughes and six-foot-eight Sampson Carter begin to backstop Parks Jr. when Alab takes on Kaohsiung anew on Sunday in its homecourt of Taiwan.
The Philippines eyes to rise from a .500 standing starting at 3:00 PM and it will be streamed LIVE and will be broadcast at 8:00 PM on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 and ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166.
Behind just the brilliance of Parks, Alab snagged two wins in four games. Now with a more complete lineup, they are hoping to make even more noise.
That’s easier said than done, however, with the Truth on a morale-high following the first win in their franchise history.
