The Manila Stars is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Basilan Steel at 6:30 P.M. on October 2, 2019 live from the Valenzuela Astrodome, Valenzuela City.
The Stars wanted to extend their winning streak to four while the Steels will try to return to their winning ways when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup resumes this evening at the Valenzuela Astrodome.
The Manila squad is coming from a win against the Navotas clutch last September 18 at the San Andres Sports Complex.
The Stars took advantage of their free-throw line trip as Navotas sent the players of Manila to the charity stripes 32 times which was two times compared to theirs.
Christopher Bitoon flirted a triple-double output with his 21 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists while Aristotle Dionisio had his 19 points and eight boards output.
For team Basilan on the other hand, they’re coming from a defeat versus the Davao Occidental Tigers last September 21 at the University of Saint La Salle Coliseum.
The Steel found life in the final quarter after they got buried with a double-digit from their opponent. Yet, time wasn’t enough for them to complete the comeback as they added another “L” to their record.
Jerald Bautista was the leading Steel player with his 18 points, three rebounds and three assists.
