THE top seeds in the 7th UNTV Cup will be determined on Thursday at the close of the first round of eliminations of the country’s public servants-only tournament at the JCSGO gym in Cubao.
Disputing Group A’s No.1 seed are defending champion Senate and Armed Forces of the Philippines, with the latter going for a perfect 5-0 record in their 5 p.m. showdown.
Three teams – National Housing Authority, Malacañang-Philippine Sports Commission and Department of Agriculture – are still in the running for top spot in Group B.
Malacañang-PSC Kamao and DA Food Masters clash at 3:30 p.m.
The NHA Builders face Ombudsman Graft Busters at 2 p.m. in the event offering P4 million to the chosen charity of the champion team.
If Malacañang and NHA prevail, the former will clinch the top seed with the loser sliding to No. 2 due to the winner over the other rule.
But if both NHA and DA emerge triumphant, the Builders will secure the No. 1.
