Alab Pilipinas send Fil-Ams, imports home


With the 10th season of the ASEAN Basketball League indefinitely suspended, and the capital under “community quarantine”, the brass of San Miguel Alab Pilipinas has decided to send its Filipino-American and American players back home to be with their families.

In a post by team owner Charlie Dy, the team — headed by Dy, head coach Jimmy Alapag and assistant coach MC Abolucion — sent off Lawrence Domingo, Jason Brickman, Jordan Heading, Jeremiah Gray, Nick King, Justin Brownlee, and John Fields.

During that time, the club team made the decision to book their players’ tickets back to the United States. The country will bar any flights starting March 15 due to the on-going coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The league also announced Friday that it is suspending the league until further notice.

Brownlee and Fields have yet to play for Alab after arriving in the country during the last week of February.

Alab are currently second in the standings with a 10-6 slate. However, the team last played back in February 23 — a 99-79 win over Saigon in Laguna.
