Following their first round victory, the Wolves faced off against the San Pedro Pirates on February 13th. The full court press from the Wolves limited their opponent’s offensive possessions as they were unable to cross half court. Offensively the Wolves were on fire as the shooting of Roselyn Poommai and Shay De Guzman carried the load on offense for their team.
