ANDRE Paras returns to AMA Online Education with his eyes set on helping the team keep alive its fading chances in the 2018 PBA D-League Foundation Cup.
The bruiser makes his comeback on Monday when the Titans take on Centro Escolar University at 3 p.m. at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Paras, 22, has spent the past month with Imus Bandera in the MPBL.
His arrival might just be the perfect pairing do-it-all forward Owen Graham needs to rescue the Titans’ run early this conference after dropping their first three assignments, the most recent against Che’Lu Bar and Grill.
Standing in AMA’s way are the hungry Scorpions, eager to bounce back after falling to Batangas.
Coach Derrick Pumaren will count on Orlan Wamar and Gilles Oloume to cancel out the Titans’ top dogs as CEU eyes win No. 2.
Marinerong Pilipino takes on Batangas in the 1 p.m. game.
The Skippers have already gotten a huge upgrade when they welcomed back Fil-Am forward Abu Tratter.
Trevis Jackson remains as the team’s go-to guy on offense, with Robbie Manalang tasked to handle the playmaking duties.
But the Generals have also added pieces, with ex-UST marksman Clark Bautista joining the team to help the Cedric de Joya-led crew.
Batangas is also expecting big things from Clark Derige and Christian Manalo after their solid performance last game against CEU.
