Cafe France and Caida Tiles collide in a battle of unbeaten teams even as Tanduay seeks a second straight win Thursday in the 2016 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

Armed with similar 3-0 records, the Bakers and Tile Masters take the floor at 4 p.m. with the winner gaining top spot, ahead of idle Phoenix-FEU.


The Rhum Masters aim to make it two-in-a-row as they battle Wang’s Basketball at 4 p.m.

The Bakers-Tile Masters clash has been tipped as a preview of the finals and Cafe France coach Egay Macaraya considers Caida as a legitimate title contender.


“I think Caida is the team to beat this conference,” said Cafe France coach Egay Macaraya, whose team is coming off of a 94-73 win over UP QRS/JAM Liner last Thursday.

The Bakers will bank on Congolese big man Rod Ebondo, Carl Bryan Cruz, Samboy de Leon and Paul Zamar.
