Negrense power forward Mark Yee tallied a double-double for the Davao Occidental Tigers in their 77-71 win over the Bicol Volcanoes earlier this week in the ongoing 2019-2020 Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League-Lakan Cup playoffs at the Rizal Memorial Colleges gym in Davao City. The Sagay City native delivered 20 points and 12 rebounds for the Tigers, while Ilonggo guard Billy Ray Robles added 11 markers, Eman Calo scored 18, and Yvan Ludovice contributed 10.
Trailing 40-29 early in the third period, Yee and Ludovice led Davao Occidental and tied up the game at 46-46. Subsequent baskets from Calo helped surge the team ahead, 55-53. Despite Bicol going on to regain a 58-57 lead, a run by Robles and Yee pushed the Tigers to a 71-63 advantage.
While down 74-71, Bicol made their final push but free throws from Ludovice iced the win for Davao Occidental.
