Alaska has a successful but heartbreaking season. Let us check what they did.

Even though a lot of fans still considered these as a wasted season, you still to respect what Alaska did with the roster that they have. They managed to shutout three teams but those Final losses to SMB and ROS were prevalent. 

The Aces were the most consistent passing team in the league and that was the anchor of their offense. Being a replica of coach Yeng's minutes distribution, bench production was also vital for the Aces. One important thing that they badly need to add outside shooting.
