B-Meg Derby Ace Llamados vs Alaska Aces
Alaska wins 99-97
Another close game and another controversial ending for Derby Ace Llamados vs Alaska Aces in overtime, with Alaska beating Derby Ace for the 2nd time this conference 99-97 . With 2.5 seconds left in OT and Alaska leading by 1, Nino “KG” Canaleta was called for an inbound violation, where he came from the outside before getting the inbound pass, but the replay clearly shows that he already established position in the inside before getting the pass.
Even though the replay was shown many times the referees stayed with their call and Derby Ace fouled LA Tenorio who made the 1st free throw and intentionally missed the second to give Alaska the win. James Yap forced overtime earlier with a 3-point shot and contributed 22pts, 4rebs and 3asts but it was Clif Brown who led all scorers with 33 points and 11 rebounds (7 offensive).
Special mention goes to Roger Yap who had 10pts, 5rebs, 7asts and 5stls and former Alaska player Don Allado who had 11pts and 9rebs.
