Talk and Text with the Dagger straight to the heart of Alaska Aces 107-106
TNT exploded in the fourth to escape with a hard earned win against the depressed Alaska Aces who now have lost 12 games in a row dating back since last conference. Alaska Aces started the game well and led the game up to the 3rd quarter with 9 points with the score of 80-71.
All was working well for the Aces and it looks like they will finally get that elusive win tonight but faith has frowned on them again as TNT had some big breaks including three point shots by Roger Pogoy and Jason Castro who led the locals with a combined score of 48 points.
After the game, Coach Nash Racela was visibly happy talking to the media as he praised his team in making the right plays during the last quarter.
TNT shoots at 47 FG% while Alaska is only at 40%.
Alaska actually did put up a good job and was leading in the rebounding, block shots, points in the paint, bench points and points of turn over but TNT got the breaks late in the game.
