Big Chill tries to sustain its hot start against winless Derulo Accelero in the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup today  at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The Superchargers, who are coming off a nail-biting win over Cebuana Lhuillier, shoot for a fifth straight victory at 2 p.m. with coach Robert Sison vowing not to “to keep on pushing.”

“We can’t rest at this time. This is a grueling tournament, so we have to stay focused and continue doing the things that makes us successful,” Sison added.

NLEX battles another winless squad in National University-Banco de Oro at 4 p.m.


“With Ray Parks there, it’s a strong team,” said NLEX coach Boyet Fernandez. “Maybe BDO is still adjusting with the physical game in the league. But when they get used to it, I’m sure they’ll be strong.”

Jumbo Plastic, also off to a good start at 3-1, tackles Arellano-Air 21 in the first of a three-game bill at 12 noon.

The Superchargers, bannered by veterans Reil Cervantes, Janus Lozada, Jeckster Apinan and rookie standout Juneric Baloria, head into the game heavily favored over the Oilers, who remain winless almost halfway into the eliminations.

Apinan starred in his last outing, nailing the clutch baskets in the Superchagers’ 81-78 win over Cebuana Lhuillier last Monday.
