    Senate eyeing a hat-trick of victories in UNTV face-off against champ AFP

    May 25, 2018
    Director General Oscar Albayalde is out to lead PNP to a third straight win.

    Games Sunday (Pasig City Sports Center): 2 p.m. – GSIS vs DOJ; 3:30 p.m. – PNP vs Judiciary; 5 p.m. – Senate vs AFP

    SENATE goes for a third straight win when it battles defending champion Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Saturday even as Philippine National Police (PNP) and Judiciary meet in a duel of favorites in the 2nd UNTV Cup Executive Face-Off at the Pasig City Sports Center.

    The Senate Sentinels and AFP Cavaliers clash at 5 p.m. with the former eyeing a fitting follow-up to a massive 90-57 win over the GSIS Furies exactly a week ago.

    In that win, Sen. Joel Villanueva shone brightest with 34 points while Warren Tan chipped in 17 points.

    The Sentinels are expected to encounter a rough sailing this time since the Cavaliers are out to snap a two-game losing run in the tournament organized by UNTV president and CEO Daniel Razon.

    But focus will be on the PNP-Judiciary tiff at 3:30 p.m.

    Like Senate, both PNP and Judiciary are coming off impressive wins with the Responders of Director General Oscar Albayalde relying heavily on a big fourth-quarter salvo to outlast the Ombudsman Graftbusters.

    The Judiciary Magis, on the other hand, outlasted the AFP Cavaliers, 67-66, thanks to Jose Midas Marquez and Joey Yabut who both scored 18 points each.

    Clashing in the opening game at 2 p.m. are GSI and Department of Justice, two teams out to barge into the win column after dropping their opening games.
