Agilas to soar high for vital 2nd win against Pacman

The Agilas is hopeful that their first ever MVBA franchise win at the expense of Arthro Kontra Athritis of Cebu last Friday would make well to their early conference debacle as valuable playoff position is at stake in this game which tips off at 6 p.m.
Buoyed by tallying 85-83 win over Arthro, the Agilas now aim for their first winning streak that would matter most for them going to the next round as it builds up vital momentum and boost up their morale and confidence which had been slightly brought down with their six game losing skid.
Against Arthro, Coach Rhoel Josol drew great games from scoring machines Fred Sampilo, Bob Cozy Ilanga and Jonjon Gonzaga while burly Boboy Berami combined with twin towers James Razon and Joel Solis in dominating the inside on both ends of the floor.
Berami, Sampilo, Ilanga and Gonzaga combined for 60 points in the game against Artho and they are expected to deliver the goods for Davao City goodwill team in battling the highly-fancied Warriors of boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao which has 3-4 record.
Holcim Pryce Pharma-MisOr of Gov. Oscar Moreno is a game ahead of the Agilas at 2-5 in the standing.
All three Mindanao Division squads are expected to give it their all in the final week of the 30-game classification stage. The balance of the schedule involves the three teams playing amongst themselves so a single win can greatly alter the rankings.
The top teams in each division will earn a bye into the best-of-three division finals. The remaining two teams will slug it out in a separate best-of-three wildcard series with the winner advancing to the division finals. The Visayas and Mindanao Division champions will meet in another best-of-three affair for the championship of the tournament sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (BAP-SBP) and made possible by ML Kwarta Padala, Nature’s Spring Water, Sulpicio Lines, Accel, Cokaliong Shipping, Reva Sandals, Gameface.Ph and Nike Basketball.
