However, he had things to say about the game officials.“Just give credit to the Alaska team, they prepared (well) for this game,” Victolero said.“But I kept reviewing the tapes. For this game, the Alaska players were the ones holding my players and they weren’t calling the fouls. I just want consistency. Yes, I’m calling their attention now. Let’s be consistent.”ADVERTISEMENT “I’m glad that we won, but we’re still down (in the series),” Alaska coach Alex Compton said. “I expect Game 4 to be a lot more like Game 2 (which was close). I guarantee you, this (blowout of the Hotshots) will not happen again.”“I’m shocked,” Compton said of their 29-point victory. “I didn’t expect this.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissImport Mike Harris scored 36 points and had 18 rebounds in just three quarters, and Compton pulled rabbits out of his hat in Abe Galliguez and Carl Bryan Cruz to register their first win in the series.Romeo Travis scored 18 points and Mark Barroca 13 for the Hotshots, who will have three days to regroup.The startling difference in this game, aside from the score, was how well the Aces executed and minimized their mistakes.
