Third time’s the charm for Cafe France as it notched its third straight win in the PBA D-League’s Foundation Cup at the expense of MP Hotel Warriors, 86-77, Thursday afternoon at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Second half rightfully belonged to the Bakers as they turned up the heat on the Warriors with an 11-0 run across the third and fourth quarters with Aaron Jeruta capping it off to put Cafe France up 61-52 at the start of the fourth.


Bakers head coach Edgar Macaraya said he still wants more from his team even with a three-game win streak that saw them climb to second spot with a 3-1 record.

“Let’s see first because the teams we beat we’re the lower seeds,” Macaraya said. “Hopefully when we face those at the tip we play better.”


MP Hotel managed to cut Cafe France’s lead to five, 69-64, but Maverick Ahanmisi and Yutien Andrada put it back to double digits at 74-64 at the 5:46 mark of the fourth.

Ahanmisi filled the stat sheets for Cafe France with 18 points, nine boards, six assists, two steals, and a block.

Joseph Sedurifa and Andrada added a combined 26 points for the Bakers.

Kier Quinto got a team-high 15 points for the Warriors but threw the ball over in their final possession that sealed their 1-4 record.

Jan Colina was a monster defensively for the Warriors with three blocks and two steals to go along with six boards but his energy defensively could not transcend to his team’s offense.
