26-game losing streak ends for Executive Boutique/Select Voicecom Bulldogs
Cebu City, Philippines—The nightmare is finally over for the Executive Boutique/Select Voicecom Bulldogs as they finally got a win in the City Sports Club-Cebu E-Leagues for Basketball Season 15 with a 58-48 victory over the Cognizant Tech Solutions Tikas on Sunday, August 4, 2019, at the City Sports Club-Cebu Gym.
