SAN JUAN, MM—San Juan was successful in its first home stand for the MPBL season after scoring another blowout win, this time a 106-78 whipping of Iloilo on Thursday night at the FilOil EcoOil Centre.

Exactly a week after opening their MPBL campaign with a blowout against the Marikina Shoemasters in Caloocan, the Knights did the same to the United Royals, quickly stomping their dominance from the get-go and never looking back.

His last triple earned him his 1,000th career point in the regional basketball league.

AC Soberano added 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting, one rebound, three assists, and one steal off the bench.

CJ Cansino led Iloilo, which dropped to 1-3, with 19 points, five rebounds, four assists, and one steal.
