PETRON-Letran eyes to make it back-to-back wins when it collides with winless McDavid in the 2019 PBA D-League on Monday at Paco Arena.
The Knights are coming off a huge 108-91 victory over AMA Online Education last March 5, giving new head coach Bonnie Tan his first win at the helm.
And a big reason for that is the stellar showing of his front court featuring Larry Muyang, Christian Fajarito and Jeo Ambohot.
"Very talented itong mga big man na ito," the soft-spoken mentor said.
That bodes well for Petron-Letran, who is also expecting big numbers from super scorer Alvin Pasaol and recovering guard Jerrick Balanza.
Tip-off is at 2 p.m. in the Aspirants Group clash, which will be followed by surprise leader St. Clare College Virtual Reality (2-0) going for its third straight win against Batangas-EAC (1-2) at 4 p.m.
McDavid, meanwhile, is looking to end its two-game skid. It lost to Batangas-EAC, 79-57 last Feb. 28.
Head coach Allen Ricardo is hoping that the 18-day break worked in favor of his boys, with Rev Diputado and Michole Sorela showing promise for the veteran-laden squad.
