The Manila Stars – Frontrow is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Nueva Ecija MiGuard at 6:30 P.M. on June 24, 2019 live from the San Andres Sports Complex in Manila City.
Both the Stars and the MiGuard are looking to log their second and back-to-back victories this 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup when the tournament resumes in Malate, Manila.
The Nueva Ecija squad had their struggle in their game-opener as they only had an hour to prepare for their match.
Thanks to the duo of Jerwin Gaco and Marlon Monte to save the day as they barley escaped the pesky defense of the Marikina Shoemasters, 78-76.
Of course MiGuard head coach Eric Gascon is looking the same aggressiveness from those guys for them to achieve their tonight’s goal.
Similarly, the Stars also had a tough match versus the Quezon City Capitals-Wemsap in their last outing.
That game was decided by a mere point, 86-85.
Manila athletic big-man Aris Dionisio was superb in that match as he logged 21 points, 12 rebounds and 2 blocks.
One of those swats is the game-winning-stopper as he rejected the shot of QC Capital’s PJ Barua.
That effort was enough for him to win the MPBL Player of the Week.
