AFP, Sen­ate eye 3-way tie for lead­er­ship

Manila Bulletin - - Sports -

Two-time cham­pion Armed Forces of the Philip­pines (AFP) and Sen­ate try to forge a three-way tie for Group A lead when they bat­tle sep­a­rate ri­vals to­mor­row in the 6th UNTV Cup at the Pasig City Sports Cen­ter.

The AFP Cava­liers col­lide with the Com­mis­sion on Au­dit (COA) En­ablers at 2 p.m. with the for­mer out to fol­low up their 103-95 win over the GSIS Furies last month.

The Sen­ate De­fend­ers are like­wise go­ing for a back-to-back when they col­lide with the Furies at 5:30 p.m.

Led by for­mer PBA play­ers Gil­bert Mal­a­banan and Rob Wain­wright, the Sen­ate De­fend­ers out­lasted the Bu­reau of Fire Pro­tec­tion Fire­fight­ers, 88-81, in the tour­na­ment of­fer­ing P4 mil­lion to the cho­sen char­ity of the cham­pion team.

Wins by AFP and Sen­ate would tie them with defending cham­pion Philip­pine Na­tional Po­lice in the an­nual tour­na­ment or­ga­nized by UNTV pres­i­dent and CEO Daniel Ra­zon for the coun­try’s pub­lic ser­vants.
