After suffering only their second loss of the season at the hands of San Miguel Alab Pilipinas, Chong Son Kung Fu will look to get back on track as they take on the lowly Formosa Dreamers in ABL Saturday action.
Chong Son hosts Formosa at the Nanhai Gym in Guangzhou, China. Tipoff is 7:30PM local time.
The Dreamers are in the midst of the worst losing streak of the season, as they lost their ninth straight game to the CLS Knights Indonesia last Saturday. As a result, the Dreamers have decided to change up their roster, adding two new players to the mix.
Errol Maxey replaces World Import Lenny Daniel in the Dreamers lineup. A veteran with several years of experience under his belt, the 39-year old Maxey is expected to provide experience and leadership beside current big man Ronnie Aguilar.
The Dreamers are also strengthening their lineup with the addition of Heritage Import Kenneth Chien. The Taiwanese-American player has experience competing in the American Basketball Association, providing athleticism and a scoring punch to a team that desperately needs it.
Both players will need to be at their best as they take on a Chong Son squad determined to bounce back against their loss last Wednesday against San Miguel Alab Pilipinas. They lost a thrilling 94-91 overtime decision, wasting several opportunities in the endgame to steal the win against San Miguel Alab Pilipinas.
It was another splendid performance for World Import Anthony Tucker, as he helped his squad in a tight battle against Alab Pilipinas. Though he struggled at times against the defense of Parks, Tucker has proven to be one of the steadiest imports this season. Look for him to bounce back against the Dreamers.
Justin Howard was a force against the smaller Alab Pilipinas, finishing with a double-double performance in the loss. Though his team didn’t get the win, Howard was stellar, shooting 9/12 from the field en route to a 25 point, 18 rebound performance. He’ll look to duplicate that feat against the gargantuan Ronnie Aguilar of the Dreamers.
A desperate Dreamers squad collides with a determined Kung Fu raring to secure their place on top. Which squad will come out on top? Saturday ABL action will have all the answers.
