The 6-foot-9 Carter has yet to score in twin digits after debuting with 23 points in the 86-77 win over the Kaohsiung Truth last Jan. 8. But Alab can restore order to its campaign with a win over the Vietnamese club, which is coming off a 67-82 defeat to the Westsports Malaysia Dragons last Friday.
