AMA Online Education eyes a fitting follow-up to a pulsating win over Jose Rizal University when it takes on Victoria Sports-MLQU in the PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup on Monday.
The match starts at 1 p.m. at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig, with the Titans hoping to chalk up their fourth win against two losses.
In its bid to make the semifinals this conference, AMA coach Mark Herrera said they can't afford to lose any of their remaining games.
"Tuloy-tuloy lang ang ensayo namin kasi alam naming di na kami pwede matalo sa remaining games namin," said Herrera, whose team will tackle a struggling Victoria Sports (0-3).
Herrera will again lean on star Jeron Teng, Juami Tiongson, and new recruit Gino Jumao-as, who made a good account of himself in his debut for the Titans. Jumao-as finished with 12 points in AMA's win over the Heavy Bombers.
Meanwhile, Cignal-San Beda (2-1) also hopes to stay in the upper half of the standings as it squares off with Batangas in the 11 a.m. match.
A win will tie the Hawkeyes with Cafe France and Tanduay, which are currently at second spot with identical 3-1 cards.
"We know that we're facing experienced players here so what we want is for the boys learn from that and be mature as we go along," said Cignal coach Boyet Fernandez.
The upset-minded Batangas, on the other hand, aims to improve a 1-3 win-loss record.
