PBA: Banchero after big game:
Banchero only missed four times and drilled 28 points for the Aces, finishing just behind import Mike Harris who had 38.

After Alaska beat Columbian in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, head coach Alex Compton wasn't particularly too happy about his locals.

After Alaska beat Blackwater in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup, safe to say Compton can smile about the way his locals performed.

No other Alaska local shined brighter than Chris Banchero against the Elite, as the point guard put up the points in the win over Blackwater.

Seriously, a lot of points.

Banchero only missed four times and drilled 28 points for the Aces, finishing just behind import Mike Harris who had 38.

"We needed to play better basketball than we did against Columbian, I thought we did tonight," Banchero said.

"I got it going a little big tonight. I was good. I'm glad I played well, I think it was my turn tonight to score the basketball. I was not realy trying to score, it was just that I kinda got it going," he added.

With the win, Alaska has forced a three-way tie for first place in the Governors' Cup with Ginebra and Magnolia as all three have identical 7-2 records.

Still, Banchero says the Aces have room to take things to a higher level.

"We knew we needed to get that win because top-4 is our goal and we'll make the push from there. Being top-4 is a huge advantage," he said.

"I think we still have room to grow," Banchero added.
