MANILA, Philippines—Wonju DB Promy relied on Filipino import Ethan Alvano to zoom past Suwon KT Sonicboom, 82-70, in the Korean Basketball League at Wonju Gymnasium on Thursday.

Wonju hiked its winning streak up to four to improve to a 21-30 card for the season.

Alvano scored a team-high 20 points built on four buckets from beyond the arc to go along with six assists, five rebounds and three steals on the defensive end to help DB Promy keep its streak alive.

With Dave Ildefonso scoring only two points, Suwon relied on Ha Yoon-Gi and Jarrod Jones with 22 and 19 points, respectively, but to no avail as the Sonicboom dropped to a 20-31 card.

The Changwon LG Sakers, meanwhile, notched a 83-79 victory over the Daegu KOGAS Pegasus.

A scoreless Justin Gutang did not affect Changwon’s victory with Lee Jae-Do scoring 24 to lift the LG Sakers to a 34-17 record.

Former Ateneo standout SJ Belangel registered seven markers, four assists, a board and a steal for Daegu as the KOGAS Pegasus tripped to a 17-34 card.
