Knights take on McDavid

PETRON-Letran guns for a second straight win in the Aspirants’ Group as it tangles with winless McDavid today in the PBA D-League at the Paco Arena.

Knights coach Bonnie Tan is glad to have Larry Muyang, Christian Fajarito, and Jeo Ambohot forming what’s probably one of the most formidable frontlines in college basketball today.

“Very talented itong mga big man na ito,” said Tan.

Coming off a huge 108-91 victory over AMA Online Education last March 5, Petron-Letran is favored to win in the 2 p.m. clash with McDavid.

St. Clare-Virtual Reality goes for its third straight win and a share of the Aspirants’ Group lead with idle University of Santo Tomas as it takes on Batangas-EAC at 4 p.m.

The Knights are also expecting big numbers from super scorer Alvin Pasaol and guard Jerrick Balanza, who came through with a solid performance following his 18-point outing against the Titans.

McDavid, meanwhile, is looking to rebound from a two-game skid, including 79-57 loss to the Generals last Feb. 28.

Coach Allen Ricardo is hoping that the 18-day break would work in favor of his boys, with Rev Diputado and Michole Sorela showing promise for the veteran-laden squad.

Junjie Hallare, Irven Palencia and John Ambuludto will spearhead the Saints along with Mali’s Mohammed Pare to stay unbeaten.

St. Clare caught a big fish in Che’Lu Bar and Grill, 82-77, last March 7.

With a 1-2 card, Batangas is looking for a better effort after the Generals suffered a 63-89 beating from the hands of the Revellers last week.
