American Monroe stars for Dragons
KUALA LUMPUR: American Sammy Monroe was the hero again for Westsports Malaysia Dragons, scoring 32 points for a convincing 83-66 win over Chang Thailand Slammers in the Asean Basketball League (ABL) match at the Maba Stadium yesterday.
It was the Dragons’ fourth win, placing them third in the six-team league after eight matches.
The Dragons were never troubled by the Slammers, finally stretching their win record against the Thai side to two wins and one loss so far this season.
Monroe, however, was not too happy with his performance despite scoring his second consecutive 32 points.
“I believe that I can do much better. But I just want to stay focused and help Dragons to win more matches,” said Monroe, who also scored 32 points in the 82-76 win over San Miguel Beermen of the Philippines at the same venue last week.
The Dragons’ next assignment is against the Beermen on March 2.
