AFP tries to extend win streak to four as Cavaliers battle BFP Firefighters in UNTV Cup
Former PBA player Robert Sanz hopes to lead to PDEA to its first win. 

FORMER champion Armed Forces of the Philippines tries to extend its winning streak to four games when it collides with Bureau of Fire Protection, while Department of Health takes on GSIS in a vital match in the 6th UNTV Cup on Sunday the Pasig City Sports Center.

Having won their first three games with no trouble, the AFP Cavaliers are heavy favorites in the 5 p.m. Group A showdown with the BFP Firefighters.

Leading the Cavaliers are former Letran star Boyet Bautista, Alvin Zuniga, Wilfredo Casulla and Jeffrey Quimbao while ex-PBA players Rob Wainwright and Gilbert Malabanan will spearhead the Firefighters, who are coming off an impressive 89-68 win over the DOH Health Achievers.

Wainwright is averaging 18 points per contest while the wily Bautista is likewise doing well with 14.3 points per game in the event offering P4 million to the chosen charity of the champion team.

But all eyes will be on the 2 p.m. encounter between DOH and GSIS, who are trying to keep their flickering hopes alive.

The two, along with the Firefighters have similar 1-2 records although the GSIS are fresh off a 105-83 drubbing of the COA Enablers.

In the lone Group B game, Department of Justice tries to keep its own bid alive when it shoots for its second win in four games against the PDEA Drugbusters at 3:30 p.m.
