The Aces rolled over the KaTropa like their lives depended on it with a blistering 35-13 first quarter, a period where Banchero had three passes that led to as many Simon Enciso triples and also one more assist for Nonoy Baclao’s layup just for good measure.Overall, Banchero found Enciso six times for open three-pointers and he also found Vic Manuel and import Mike Harris four times for layups.Bancero also tallied three assists off Ping Exciminiano’s shots.Despite his playmaking masterpiece, Banchero knows there’s still a room for improvement as they plan to move up from their 2-0 record.“There’s always room for improvement, we’ll watch film tomorrow and build from there, I don’t think we shot that well from the free throw line tonight,” said Banchero whose team went 10-of-17 from stripe. “We got to work on that if we want to be a championship team.”ADVERTISEMENT Peza offers relief to ecozone firms ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial begins Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ DepEd’s Taal challenge: 30K students displaced Palace OKs total deployment ban on Kuwait OFWs The old saying goes that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade and that can also be translated, loosely, into basketball.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines?
