Blazers target No. 4, face Chiefs
Games today (Filoil Flying V Center, San Juan) 12:30 p.m. – St. Benilde vs Arellano U 2:15 p.m. – SSC vs JRU 4:40 p.m. – NU vs Perpetual 6:30 p.m. – Adamson vs UST
Surprise leader St. Benilde seeks to stretch its win run to four as it faces Arellano U in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan today.
The Blazers romped past the Jose Rizal U Bombers, the San Sebastian Stags and the Far Eastern U Tams to wrest control with the Taftbased squad confident of extending their streak against the Chiefs in their 12:30 p.m. encounter.
But Arellano is also going all out to stop St. Benilde and force a tie for the Group B lead at 3-1.
In other games, SSC, reeling from the loss of its three mainstays, squares off with Jose Rizal U at 2:15 p.m. while University of Santo Tomas tries to score a follow-up to its victory over JRU last Wednesday as it faces Adamson at 6:30 p.m.
But the Falcons are also coming off a win over the Letran Knights last Tuesday with new recruits Jerome Lastimosa, Vince Magbuhos and Egie Boy Mojica expected to carry the scoring cudgels again for the San Marcelinobased squad.
Meanwhile, National U, which ousted Gilas Cadets from the quarterfinal race last week, takes on winless Perpetual Help at 4:40 p.m.
