Green Archers hot on semis berth


Games today:

(Ynares Sports Arena)

4:30 p.m. — CEU vs Go Torakku-St. Clare

7:30 p.m. — EcoOil-La Salle vs Keanzel


Reigning champion EcoOil-La Salle goes for its fourth win to secure an outright semifinal berth in the 2024 Philippine Basketball Association D-League Aspirants’ Cup today at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

The Green Archers are unbeaten in three games and share the top spot with Marinerong Pilipino-San Beda. Another win against the winless Keanzel Basketball in the main game at 7:30 p.m. will virtually secure their place in the semifinals of the six-team tilt.

Meanwhile, Centro Escolar University, which is coming off a 126-91 breakthrough win over Keanzel last week, tests the mettle of Go Torakku-St. Clare at 4:30 p.m., hoping to make it two in a row to wheel back into contention for a top two spot.

But the spotlight will be on La Salle, which is needing an all-important win before its face-off with heavyweight Marinerong Pilipino-San Beda on Thursday next week.

Although Keanzel Basketball remains winless in three starts, La Salle assistant coach Caloy Garcia warned his troops against overconfidence.

“When we join leagues, you always prepare for every game. It does not matter who you play. That’s why coach Topex (Robinson) has been saying. We need to prepare and start to look out for other teams,” Garcia said.

The Scorpions are also not taking Go Tarakku-St. Clare for granted.

“I trust my players that they will step up in the coming games. We just need to stay composed on both ends. We have to execute well on offense and defense,” CEU coach Jeff Perlas said.

Go-Torakku-St. Clare (0-2) and Keanzel (0-3) are the only winless teams in the League.
