Tt was also a steal by Chris Bitoon that allowed Aris Dionisio to break free for an easy layup that gave a the Stars a one point lead with 11 seconds left on the clock.

    That is a very long season, It's perfect for the older former PBA players like Helterbrand and David they have the whole week to rest after a game...

    Only the opening games were held in MOA. There will be 3 games a day from Monday to Saturday starting June 24. To save on cost, all the three games will be played in a single venue. The main (third) game will feature the home team.

    Default Parañaque Patriots Erased A 20-pt Deficit To Stun Valenzuela, 89-83



    Banking on their youth, the Parañaque Patriots enforced a suffocating trap defense to dig themselves out of a deep 20-point hole to hand the Valenzuela SpvTop Marketplace their first loss of the season at the latter's own home, 89-83, last Wednesday night.

    It was the Valenzuela Classics who first staged a breakaway as Chris De Chavez and Mel Mabigat hit their targets with nine (9) and five (5) points respectively that sparked a 17-4 run in the second quarter. Valenzuela closed the first half leading by 14, 51-37.

    Default Cebu Sharks Grind Out An Ugly Win Against Marikina Shoemasters


    MPBL season 3
    Match no. 18
    9pm

    The visiting Cebu Sharks outlasted the Marikina Shoemasters in a very low scoring and erratic game to grind out a 50-42 win Friday night at the Marist Gym.

    It was an ugly game and an off night for both team as they struggled to connect on most of their shot attempts. The Marikina Shoemasters were shooting bricks after bricks at an awful 25% clip. Meanwhile, the Sharks were not any better as they only managed to sink 19 of their 44 shots or just 35%.

    So it's not pure Home and Away anymore. This format has been done before, remember Noli Eala's Liga Pilipinas? He called it "circuit" . where the host team will host 3 other teams, and all a 4 teams get to play each other in that host's venue, hence, the circuit.

    yes, definitely more viable than a pure home and away format logistics-wise.
