Game to­day (Paco Arena) 3:30 p.m. – Marinerong Pilipino vs BRT Su­misip Basi­lan-St. Clare

One team fi­nally gets to re­al­ize its cham­pi­onship dream to­day when Marinerong Pilipino and BRT Su­misip Basi­lan-St. Clare face off for all the mar­bles in the PBA D-League Foun­da­tion Cup at the Paco Arena in Manila to­day.

The Skip­pers and the Saints have split the first two games of this best-of-three tit­u­lar show­down, set­ting the stage for an ex­pected slam­bang rub­ber match at 3:30 p.m. with the sur­vivor earn­ing the elu­sive break­through ti­tle.

Con­sid­ered the un­der­dog prior to the fi­nals, BRT now en­joys the mo­men­tum on its side fol­low­ing a huge 74-60 Game Two win that foiled its ri­val’s con­fer­ence sweep bid.

And coach Steven­son Tiu wants his wards to make the most of the chance they have given them­selves.
