The Manila squad is once again coming from a convincing victory against the Biñan City Laguna Heroes last August 14 in Angeles University Foundation Gymnasium.

Frontrow Stars player Christopher Bitoon led his team on that game where he delivered a double-double performance with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
For the Valenzuela group, on the other hand, they’re coming from a defeat against the Marikina Shoemasters last August 15 at the Caloocan Sports Complex.
Though they made a 10-0 blast in the final quarter as they trimmed the double-digit deficit to a striking distance but they run out of gas to complete a comeback.
SPV Top Marketplace Paolo Hubalde led his team in scoring during that showdown as he registered 20 points and four rebounds.
