The Risers wanted to make back-to-back wins while the Stars will try to extend its winning streak to five in a row when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes tonight at the AUF Gymnasium.
Team Bataan is coming from a victory versus the Basilan Steel last December 19 at the Bataan People’s Center.
The Risers utilized the post to manufacture their points and was the key area of their victory as they won the battle in the paint, 46-38.
John Bryron Villarias led their squad with his 17 points, six rebounds, and six assists while teammate Chito Jaime chipped in with his 13 points and five boards effort.
The Manila squad, on the other hand, had no problem disposing the Rizal Golden Coolers last January 6 at the San Andres Sports Complex.
The Stars wasted no time and from the get-go, they already piled a double-digit lead where their advantage went as high as 35 points.
Manila was almost unstoppable inside the paint (62-46) and they also showcased their up-tempo offense where they also won the fastbreak points (41-18).
Christopher Bitoon led the Stars with his 28 points output while Mark Dyke added 16 markers.
