Powerhouse squads Caida Tiles and Tanduay Light seek to underline their title credentials even as newcomer UP-QRS-Jam Liner faces a stern test on opening day of the PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup Thursday at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Tipped to come up with a strong showing even in their maiden appearance in the D-League, the Tile Masters take on the Rhum Masters at 2 p.m. after the opening ceremonies.
