CENTRO Escolar University looks to strengthen its hold on the top spot when it tackles AMA Online Education in the PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup on Thursday.
The match starts at 1 p.m. at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig, with the Scorpions also seeking a third straight victory.
Although up against a slumping team in AMA, coach Yong Garcia is urging the Scorpions to give their full effort.
The Titans (1-5) have indeed struggled to barge into the win column even with the emerence of Robbie Manalang and addition of big man Mac Andaya.
"Walang malakas o mahina na kalaban para sa amin. Ang importante is our system, kung paano namin ibibigay yung best effort namin," Garcia said.
Meanwhile, Akari-Adamson (5-2) takes on Batangas-EAC (1-6) in the 11 a.m. match.
