The Accenture Sharks remained nigh unstoppable in the Elite Classic division of the Tanduay Athletics E-Leagues for Basketball as they put down the Concentrix Converters, 94-84, for their 11th win in a row, at the City Sports Club-Cebu basketball court on Saturday, November 23, 2019.

After a tightly-fought first half that saw the Sharks lead by just one, 45-44, they suddenly flipped the switch and outscored the Converters, 29-20, in the third to take control of the game and pave the way for their 14th win in 15 games, good for the best record in the league.

Archie Batua had a fine performance for last season’s runners-up as he had 17 points, three boards and two steals. He had help from the likes of Jeanne Perez who had 15 and Sherwin Resilla who collected a double-double of 13 points and 10 boards.

The Converters dropped to 9-7 and into a tie with the Teleperformance Vipers, which defeated the QBE Generals, 60-58. Mon Dico led the way for the Vipers with 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists while Nicholai Vendiola had 11 markers and five boards.

Over in the Evo League, the EB/SVC Bulldogs defeated Demand Science, 94-78, as Aristotle Alcos exploded for 37 points and eight assists while Yvess Suan added 16 markers and 11 boards to help them move up to 11-4.
