MANILA, Philippines—Visiting San Miguel defeated defending champion Indonesia, 64-53, in the 4th Asean Basketball League (ABL) season opener Friday night in Jakarta.

Import Brian Williams led the Beermen, who lost to the Warriors in the finals last year, with 15 points and 19 rebounds while guard Fil-Italian Chris Banchero chipped in 14 points.

Indonesia missed the services for lightning quick Fil-American guard Stanley Pringle, who will be sidelined for 12 weeks due to a meniscus tear.

Since missing the chance of bringing home the title last season, the Beermen have beefed up even more by bringing in stalwarts Asi Taulava and Eric Menk into the mix.

PBA veteran Taulava scored his first two points in fourth period but nonetheless made an impact with 10 boards.
