Alaska begins bid to rectify mistakes of past conference even

Inquirer Breaking News - 9 hours 14 min ago
Alaska rolled its sleeves in the second half to escape new-look NorthPort by the skin of its teeth, 87-85, officially taking the lid off the PBA's season-ending Governors' Cup and getting their campaign off the right foot. Robbie Herndon hit a tough jumper with 30 ticks remaining, bringing the Aces back up, 86-85, and effectively upending a late Batang Pier surge led by Greg Slaughter and Arwind Santos. Jeron Teng then went on to split his freebies when NorthPort resorted to stopping the clock with a foul, but with six seconds remaining---the Batang Pier took too much time figuring out it was time to send someone to the stripe---Alaska pretty much had the game sewn up.

Inquirer Breaking News - 9 hours 18 min ago
Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez said he was hoping the Senate would let the Philippines join a China-led "mega trade deal" before the end of the year, despite the opposition raised by agricultural groups.

Inquirer Breaking News - 9 hours 24 min ago
