Brownlee suits up for Alab vs Dragons

February 18, 2020

SAN Miguel Alab Pilipinas parades an old hand in Justin Brownlee as it tangles with the Kuala Lumpur Dragons today in the ASEAN Basketball League at the MABA Stadium.

Tip off is at 8 p.m.

Alab presently sits at the No. 2 spot with a total of nine wins and five losses behind Thailand’s Mono Vampire, which is staying strong at the top with an 11-4 slate.

Brownlee will be making his second stint with Alab, which is seeking to regain the crown it won in 2018 with Renaldo Balkman.

The resident Barangay Ginebra import will replace the ineffective Prince Williams.

Brownlee was fresh from leading the Kings to the PBA Governors’ Cup title last month, their third title in the season-ending conference in the past four seasons.

Alab hopes to follow up its 82-75 victory over the Saigon Heat in Sta. Rosa, Laguna last Feb. 9.

Incidentally, Brownlee will make his home debut on Sunday, when Alab host the Heat anew at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Sports Complex.

The Dragons, meanwhile,  are at No. 6 with an even 7-7 card. Kuala Lumpur suffered a narrow 87-88 loss to the Singapore Slingers at home over the weekend.

Alab got enough rest after its showdown with the Macau Black Bears at home last Sunday was postponed due to the novel coronavirus outbreak.
