A huge comeback happened that made Alaska claim the second spot overall in this conference standing and Compton still can't comprehend that they clinched a win against Rain or Shine after being down in the most part of the game.
Though second spot gives them a twice to beat advantage, Compton doesn't savor the edge that they have after getting the news that they'll be facing Ginebra in the quarter-finals.
"It's an advantage to have a twice-to-beat, it's not an advantage to play Ginebra". Says Compton in a post game interview.
Ginebra and Alaska had some history of playing in the playoffs and last conference was the recent one where
Ginebra is the one with an edge of having beaten twice to advance but now is a different situation as the Alaska Aces gets this edge in the season opening conference.
Compton calls for a practice 24 hours after they get the 2nd seed in this conference as they will have to prepare for their next assignment. Ginebra is a hard shell to crack as they've been into situations where they had disadvantages but still managed to get over it and even win Championships.
"We need to prepare for Ginebra, it's playoff time we dont rest." Compton stressed.
Ginebra will be coming off a week of rest before their face-off against Alaska and will try to win their first game in the quarterfinals to inch closer to the next level.
