The SOCCSKSARGEN Marlins is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Muntinlupa Cagers at 4:00 P.M. on July 12, 2019 live from the Caloocan Sports Complex, Caloocan City.
The Cagers are looking to snap their four-game losing skid and log their first victory this season while the Marlins will make its MPBL debut when the tournament resumes this afternoon in Caloocan.
After some hiccups on making their first game, finally, the SOCCSKSARGEN squad have green lights to shoot hoops in the Lakan Cup.
For the Muntinlupa squad, on the other hand, they absorbed another defeat when they tangled up against the Bacolod Master Sardines last July 5.
The game went to overtime after they failed to stop the driving layup of Arben Dionson that sent the match to another five more minutes extension.
In the overtime period, the Cagers only managed to score six points against their opponent’s 18.
Muntinlupa committed 29 turnovers in that match which gave Bacolod an extra 40 points.
Protecting the ball and maximize each ball possession may be one of the adjustments they have to do to improve their chances of striking their very first victory.
