Behind the steady hands of Jason Brickman, the Mono Vampire was able to escape a late-game flurry by Joshua Munzon and the Westsports Malaysia Dragons to take a 115-111 home triumph, Friday evening in Studio 29.

Brickman, who is averaging 12.25 points and a league-high 9.88 assists, finished the game with 11 points and 13 assists. He proved pivotal in the final frame that helped buck Westsports.

Filipino export Paul Zamar was able to score five straight points capped by a breakaway lay-up with 6:10 remaining to give Mono the lead for good, 103-101.

Mono was able to extend its lead to seven with 1:33 left before Munzon came alive. The 22-year-old swingman was able to score off free throws, before knocking down a long triple to turn the game into a one-game possession with 43 ticks remaining.

After a stop, Munzon had a chance to go for the lead, but his attempt from downtown missed. Free throws by Brickman sealed Mono’s third straight victory.

In his second game back, Munzon finished with 32 points, seven rebounds, six assists, and four steals.

Zamar sparked Mono by scoring 10 of his 24 points in the opening frame. The 31-year-old guard grabbed seven boards as well.

With the win, the Thai club team raised its slate to 6-3. Westsports dropped to 1-4.

Brickman, Zamar, and the rest of Mono Vampire will host Alab Pilipinas on Sunday, January 14.
