Barako Bull shocks Alaska

/ 08:53 AM November 25, 2013

THIS MUCH-MALIGNED team continues to make heads turn. The Barako Bull Energy Colas pulled off another big surprise after they shocked the Alaska Aces with a come-from-behind 97-93 yesterday in the 39th PBA Philippine Cup at the Araneta Coliseum.

The Energy Colas, a team heavily criticized for trading away promising players and wasting golden opportunities of acquiring bright prospects in the Rookie Draft, wiped out a 15-point fourth quarter deficit behind a barrage of three-pointers to earn a piece of the lead with their second straight win in as many outings.


Barako Bull started the tournament with an 88-75 win over the lowly Air21 Express and proved that the hot start was no fluke as they torched the Aces with seven three-pointers in the fourth.

Overall, the Energy Colas shot 17-for-39 from the three-point land for a 43.6 clip.
