The Cebu City Sharks is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Iloilo United Royals at 4:00 P.M. on July 15, 2019 live from the Valenzuela Astrodome, Valenzuela City.
The Sharks wanted to end their two-game losing skid while the United Royals are eyeing to pick up their second straight victories when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes this afternoon at the Valenzuela Astrodome.
The Cebu group had an impressive first quarter but unable to sustain their great run in their last outing versus the Valenzuela SPV Top Marketplace.
The Sharks limit their opponent to only score eight points in the first quarter but Valenzuela had their response in the second period with 29-12 spurt. From there it was all SPV Top Marketplace.
For the Iloilo squad, on the other hand, they were able to escape with a victory against the Nueva Ecija MiGuard last July 10.
The United Royals were up by eleven points as the game approaches its last two minutes but the MiGuard orchestrated a 10-0 run.
Yet, they were able to withstand the rampage of their opponent.
Richard Escoto led Iloilo with his 18 points and seven rebounds. His previous points production is expected once again this afternoon.
