Alaska remained unbeaten in the 2015-2016 Smart Bro PBA Philippine Cup, gutting out a hard fought 87-79 win against Blackwater on Friday at Mall of Asia Arena.

In contrast to their easy victory over Talk N’ Text last week, the Aces had to find their footing in the payoff period to stave off a determined rally from the Elite.

A scathing third quarter run turned the tide for the sluggish Alaska squad before Vic Manuel found his form late in the game and secured the Aces the victory.

Chris Banchero led Alaska with 13 points while Manuel also had 13 markers, eight of which coming in the payoff period, alongside seven rebounds.
