D-League: Cig­nal eyes 2nd spot against Blus­tar


Cig­nal-San Beda gets a chance to gain a share of the sec­ond spot when it bat­tles Blus­tar De­ter­gent to­day in the 2017 PBA D-League As­pi­rants' Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Com­ing off a 95-68 vic­tory over Batan­gas last Mon­day, the Hawkeyes want to rec­tify their mis­cues be­fore fac­ing off against stronger squads.

Ja­son Perkins and By­ron Vil­lar­ias are ex­pected to come out fir­ing anew as they have been in­stru­men­tal in giv­ing Blus­tar a 3-1 record be­hind league-lead­ing Ra­cal (5-0) and Café France (4-1).

In the opener at 11 am, Jose Rizal Univer­sity and Vic­to­ria Sports-MLQU take the spot­light with the Heavy Bombers aching to bounce back from a 75-57 beat­ing it ab­sorbed from Café France last Thurs­day.

It's a must-win for JRU as it eyes to stay relevent mid­way through the con­fer­ence.

Vic­to­ria Sports, how­ever, has to come up with re­newed energy so it could check a fourgame los­ing skid.
