The Batangas City Athletics is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Bataan Risers at 8:30 P.M. on September 14, 2019 live from the Bataan People’s Center, Bataan.
The Risers wanted to make a bounce-back game while the Athletics will try to strike their eight wins for the season when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes this evening in Bataan.
Bataan got mightily hammered by the Bacoor Strikers in their last outing at the People Center Capitol Drive.
A massive 27-point defeat that they now need to put behind but retain any valuable learnings in order to avoid the same ordeal.
Former UE Red Warriors Alvin Pasaol led Bataan in their offense with 17 points and five rebounds while John Bryron Villarias had 15 markers and seven boards in that loss.
For the Batangas squad, on the other hand, they’re coming from a convincing victory against the SOCCSKSARGEN Marlins two nights ago at the Batangas City Coliseum.
The Athletics wasted no time to pound their opponent as right after the tip-off up to the end of the first half they made sure that SOCCSKSARGEN offensive players had difficulty finding their range.
The Marlins were only held to 15 points in the first and second quarters combined.
Lester Alvarez was the leading scorer for Batangas where he made 21 points while teammates Adrian Santos and Nikki Perez scored 12 and 10 points respectively.
