After five years, the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) crown is back in the hands of Filipinos.

San Miguel Alab Pilipinas capped its best-of-five championship series against the Mono Vampire Basketball Club with a resounding victory, 102-92, in front of a packed home crowd at the City of Santa Rosa Multipurpose Complex in Laguna on Wednesday. The local ball club last captured the title in 2013, with the help of Asi Taulava and June Mar Fajardo.

Alab was led by the import duo of Renaldo Balkman and Justin Brownlee all throughout the season, and Game 5 of the Finals wasn't any different. Balkman, who was named co-Defensive Player of the Year, finished with 32 points, nine rebounds, and six assists, while Brownlee fell shy of a triple-double again (24-12-9). ABL Finals MVP Ray Parks did just enough (13 pts 2 reb 4 ast) to hold off a gutsy Thai squad.

Monster games from opposing reinforcements Mike Singletary (32 pts 8 reb 4 ast) and Sam Deguara (24 pts 18 reb) went for naught, as Paul Zamar was the only other Mono Vampire player to score in double figures with 19. Jason Brickman had nine points, seven rebounds, and six assists.
