Even Jawbreakers coach Topex Robinson related that the opposing players were egging his wards to continue shooting and run the score up, making it no surprise that Mila’s Lechon committed 30 turnovers and gave up 38 turnover points.READ: Zark’s-Lyceum crushes Mila’s Lechon by 47 for 5th straight winMarcial has already met with the team officials led by coach Jesse Ricardo and Mila’s Lechon team owners on Friday at the PBA Office in Libis, but wanted to get more insights from the players.The league will be releasing the final report early next week.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Miserable Christmas Day: ‘Ursula’ pummels Visayas; 10 dead PLAY LIST 01:05Miserable Christmas Day: ‘Ursula’ pummels Visayas; 10 dead03:11Analyst: Traffic woes, water shortage affect Duterte’s approval rating in NCR00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
