FOR the second straight year, AMA Online Education will pick first in the PBA D-League Rookie Draft.

The draft is set on Tuesday at the PBA Cafe in Pasig City, with Alvin Pasaol and Arvin Tolentino heading the list of 201 aspirants.

The Titans seek to fortify a squad featuring Andre Paras, and AMA coach Mark Herrera remains undecided a day before the draft.

"Hindi, baka iba kunin namin," Herrera said when asked if the team is bent on plucking out highly-touted, high-scoring Pasaol.

Last year, the Titans made La Salle’s Jeron Teng the No. 1 pick. Teng played for the Titans in the Aspirants Cup before moving to Flying V for the Foundation Cup.

Wangs Basketball-Letran picks second, followed by Batangas-EAC, CEU and Zark's Lyceum.

Gamboa Coffee-St. Clare has the sixth pick, while picking next are Jose Rizal University, Marinerong Pilipino, Che’Lu-San Sebastian, Mila's Lechon, Powerball-St. Benilde, Perpetual and Akari-Adamson. 

Mila's Lechon and Marinerong Pilipino are the only teams that are not school-based.

The opening conference starts on January 18.
