MANILA, Philippines—Frank House had a disappointing debut with Alaska in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup as his subpar performance failed to make an impact for the Aces in the 101-75 loss to Meralco.

The Aces’ new foreign reinforcement had humble numbers of eight points, 11 rebounds, and six assists but House admitted that he was still adjusting to the style of play here.


“I think it was more of me being the only import out there, I’m not used to that because we usually got three or four,” said House Friday at Mall of Asia Arena.


House, who had a 20-day stint with the Chicago Bears in the NFL, previously played with the Landstede Hammers in the Dutch Basketball League where clubs can have as much as four reinforcements.

The PBA, though, allows just one foreign player per team in the Commissioner’s and Governors’ Cups.

“I usually got three imports as my teammates and I’m not given that much attention defensively so that’s something I’ll adjust to,” said House. “I have to know where to pick my spots and know how to handle double teams better.”

House, who played as a tight end in American football, added that he has to get used to the physicality and be more aggressive in the Aces’ next games with his 3-of-13 shooting and four fouls speak volumes that he still needs to adjust to the PBA style of play.

“I got to come out with more intensity, be more aggressive as far as the physicality of the game is concerned,” said House. “I got to take it to the rim more. I didn’t play my best game today, but I’ll be ready next time.”
