- Talk about your handicaps... Walla Walla, with playoff losses by Atlanta, Houston and Minnesota, has only one player from their playoff roster survive the NBA's first round. Adding two players from the draft, they can still only field three players for the Championship round. Manila is licking their dog-deep-frying chops.
- Manila is unstoppable... Even with Matt Geiger sitting out game 1, the DogEaters blow out the under-manned Walla Walla in game 1.
- All the Phillipines is alive in anticipation of a DogEater game2 win and series sweep!
- Walla Walla and Eddie Jones storm back to win game 2. Manila has some big problems: Patrick Ewing's return limits T Cummings to 8 minutes of game time, D Shrempf goes down with Seattle and scores 1 NBA point all game, and David Wesley watches as BJ and Curry win Charlotte's game over the Bulls.
- Excitement is building and tickets to the final game in Walla Walla are reportedly being scalped for upward of $10... Stay tuned...
