Bulacan Kuyas-Mighty Sports will defend home court against the Batangas City Athletics in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL) 2018-2019 Datu Cup.
The Kuyas seek to avenge their loss against the Manila Stars, 84-62, last August 16 as they are slightly favored in the 9:00 PM bout later this evening at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium in Malolos. Anta Rajah Cup champs Athletics are currently slumping with three straight losses and a 2-4 card.
The Caesar Wongchuking Mighty Sports-backed Kuyas are in strong contention with a 5-2 win-loss record and hope to cash in on Coach Britt Reroma and his boys led by the burly Jay-R Taganas and ex-pros James Martinez and Hans Thiele.
Meanwhile, the core of Tey Teodoro, Jhayme Eguilos and Val Acuna seek to get over the slump in order to be back in the playoff race inside the Southern Division.
Tonight’s 7:00 PM game opener will be between Basilan Steel and Caloocan Supremos-Longrich to see who will upend the other as they both have 2-4 records.
