Bakers seek No. 2, share of top spot
Powerhouse Cafe France faces another stern test as it guns for a second straight victory against Cignal San Beda on Monday in the PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup at Ynares Sports Arena.
A week after opening the season with an 83-67 pummeling of Tanduay, the Bakers return to action against a Cignal squad raring to bounce back from a stinging defeat to AMA Online Education.
Gametime is at 5 p.m. with the Bakers hoping to draw big games from newcomers Mike Calisaan and Paul Desiderio anew as they look to join the Titans in the early lead.
The duo starred in the win over the Rhum Masters, combining for 39 points for the Bakers, who also got another superb game from Congolese center Rod Ebondo.
“Hopefully, everybody starts jelling,” Bakers coach Egay Macaraya said.
Meanwhile, Wangs Basketball shoots for a share of the lead as it tangles with Tanduay in the 3 p.m. tussle.
