    Blue Eagles look to claim title, Scorpions hope to force decider

    Jun 24, 2019

    CIGNAL-Ateneo is going for the kill in Game Four of the 2019 PBA D-League Finals against Centro Escolar University on Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena.

    The Blue Eagles have righted the ship with a dominant 67-52 Game Three victory on Thursday to go on the hill in the best-of-five championship series, calming the tides after a shocking 77-74 Game Two defeat last Tuesday.

    Coach Sandy Arespacochaga is urging the Eagles to stay focused in the closeout game.

    "We have to play each game and be present for each game. We can't look past every game and we have to make sure we do our job for the next game," said the deputy mentor.

    With MVP Isaac Go , Ivorian center Ange Kouame and Thirdy Ravena shwoing the way, the Eagles look prevent the series from going to a decider.

    Game time is at 4 p.m.

    Meanwhile, coach Derrick Pumaren believes the Scorpions have nothing to lose, saying he is proud of what the team has accomplished.

    "Like what I said before, these boys are already champions in my eyes. Whatever happens, we're just going to go out and try to give a hell of a fight to Ateneo," he said.

    Senegalese slotman Maodo Malick Diouf will banner the Scorpions' attempt on extending the series to a decider, with Rich Guinitaran, Jerome Santos and Franz Diaz providing support.
