The Iloilo United Royals is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Bicol Volcanoes at 9:00 P.M. on July 27, 2019 live from the Ibalong Centrum for Recreation, Legazpi City, Albay.
The United Royals are hoping that they’ll end their two-game skid this evening while the Volcanoes wanted to extend their hot streak to five when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup continues in Albay.
The Bicolanos are coming from a grueling overtime battle against the Valenzuela SPV Top Marketplace last July 18.
Thanks to the fourth quarter three-pointer of Ron Jason Buenafe that sent the game to another five more minutes.
In OT, the Volcanoes made sure that they’ll take over the game for good as they limit Valenzuela to score only three points against their twelve markers.
Alwyn Alday was their top scorer in that match where he registered 26 points and seven rebounds along with six assists.
For the Ilonggo squad, on the other hand, they are coming from a defeat against the GenSan Warriors last July 20.
Iloilo failed to match the bench firepower of GenSan where they got outscored in the bench points category, 25-33.
United Royals head coach Eric Gonzales needs to find more scoring gems from his supporting cast to have a better chance to strike a victory against a home team.
Rodel Samboy De Leon was their leading scorer in their last outing. De Leon delivered 11 points and seven boards.
