    GAMBOA Coffee Mix-St. Clare clobbered AMA Online Education, 136-90, on Thursday in the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

    The Coffee Lovers cemented the fifth-seed in the quarterfinals despite being in a three-way tie for fourth between Che’Lu Bar and Grill-San Sebastian and Zark’s-Lyceum with identical 7-4 cards.

    Gamboa will play fourth-seed Che'Lu in the quarterfinals but will have to beat the Revellers twice to advance into the semifinals.

    Cris Bitoon had 31 points, while Trevis Jackson had 26 points in a lopsided win by Gamboa before it enters the playoff round.

    After trailing by 9-2 to start the game, Gamboa pulled away in the second quarter, outscoring AMA, 35-18, thanks to Bitoon and Jackson, who already had 21 and 13 points, respectively, for the Coffee Lovers.

    “Mag-peprepare lang kami mabuti,” said Gamboa-St. Clare coach Jino Manansala. “Gusto namin sila mabigyan ng magandang laban kahit twice-to-beat sila. ‘Yung mga bata, sige lang ng sige basta bawat opportunity na matanggap namin dito, aalagaan namin.”
