MANILA, Philippines—With Magnolia reeling with the absence of key pieces, Ian Sangalang held the fort in a critical time for the Hotshots.

Sangalang played his best game of the young season on Friday against Barangay Ginebra.

The former San Sebastian standout gave the Gin Kings fits with 24 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field, nine rebounds and two blocks.

Magnolia, thanks in large part to Sangalang, was able to withstand Ginebra, 89-84, despite missing the services of Paul Lee and Calvin Abueva, who got ejected early in the fourth quarter.
