Alab Pilipinas looks to bounce back on Wednesday when they go to Foshan, China and face the Wolf Warriors in the ABL.
The 2017-18 champions are smarting from their opening week loss away at Mono Vampire.
With their newly revamped side got hit in their huge loss to the Thai side eight days ago, Jimmy Alapag’s men are looking to avoid the 0-2 start since his debut season in which they won the title.
As his homecoming in Nothanburi got to a wrong note, Jason Brickman has to get the squad in order to get their opening win, after an uncharacteristic performance got him scoreless in 26 minutes of action in their 76-111 beating.
On the other hand, the Wolf Warriors need more help from Chen Cai and Julian Boyd after they dropped their opening assignment against the Black Bears in an all-Macau tiff last November 23.
ABL Legend Steven Thomas was just a point away from going to number 7 in the all-time scoring list, as he also seeks to recover from his 5-point output the last time out.
