The San Miguel Beermen is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Shenzhen Aviators at 7:00 P.M. on September 17, 2019 live from Macao’s Tap Seac Multi-sports Pavilion, Macau, China.
The Macau based basketball tournament known as “The Terrific 12” is back for its 2019 installment. For its third salvo, it’s the battle between the Beermen and the Aviators.
San Miguel will try to bring their winning success abroad and hopes that they’ll bring home the crown of the East Asia Super League.
However, the squad coached by Leo Austria will face a big challenge as their five-time Most Valuable Player, June Mar Fajardo won’t suit up in this tournament due to an ankle injury he suffered during his stint with the Gilas Pilipinas in the just concluded 2019 FIBA World Cup.
Yet, the Beermen won’t be called as powerhouse if they don’t have solid players in their roster. Without a doubt, Christian Standhardinger will be up for the challenge and all we know before he joined the SMB franchise he was seen playing in an international tournament.
Dezmine Wells and Lester Prosper will reinforce the Beermen in this league. Wells will be their import for the upcoming 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup and this will be a test for the squad to determine if he’s the right fit and help them snag their second grand slam.
Prosper on the other hand was the import of Columbian Dyip last conference who came in the later stages of the Commissioner’s Cup. It’s time to find out how good Prosper especially playing with one of the PBA’s heavyweight teams.
Shenzhen, on the other hand, will feature Li Muhao a 7-foot-2 player who once served their national team. Their imports are Pierre Deshawn and former NBA first-round pick Shabazz Muhammad.
