Centro Escolar University (CEU) eyes to tighten its grip of the top spot as it battles the skidding Jose Rizal University (JRU) in the Philippine Basketball Association Developmental League (PBA D-League) Aspirants’ Cup 2018 today at the Pasig City Sports Center.
The leading Scorpions take on the lowly Heavy Bombers in the second game at 4 p.m.
CEU, under head coach Yong Garcia, punished a Papi Sarr-less Akari-Adamson University, 76-57, last Tuesday to reclaim the No. 1 spot with a 4-1 win-loss record.
In the game day opener at 11 a.m., Akari-Adamson and AMA Online Education battle for a bounce-back win.
Akari is out to rebound from a humiliating defeat to CEU, which dropped Franz Pumaren’s men to No. 2 with a 4-2 slate.
Cameroonian center Sarr, who missed the Soaring Falcons’ last outing after losing his jersey, is expected to make up for lost time.
