Cafe France eyes to rebound from its first defeat of the tourney when it goes up against AMA Online Education today in the 2016 PBA D-League Foundation Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
The Bakers are coming off an 84-80 loss to Tanduay last Thursday and will vent their frustrations on the still winless Titans in the curtain raiser at 2 p.m.
Cafe France will bank on the leadership of Congolese big man Rod Ebondo and Paul Zamar to negate the presence of the returning Jay-R Taganas for AMA.
In the second game, Racal will try to escape an upset bid against the dangerous Blustar Detergent at 4 p.m.
Despite the Dragons still being 0-3, Tile Masters coach Caloy Garcia kept his squad on their toes as he said, “Theyre a big team, but our advantage is we’re a quicker team than them.”
“We just have to come out with the same energy as we had,” Garcia said, after Racal came off of a 102-83 victory over Topstar ZC Mindanao last week.
Blustar, meanwhile, will be hoping to sustain its promising form after close defeats to Cafe France and Phoenix last week.
The Dragons will once again lean on Juami Tiongson and Kuek Tian Yuan in this game against the Tile Masters.
