Kera faces Jumbo

Games Monday San Juan Arena
1 p.m. – Jumbo Plastic vs Kera Mix
3 p.m. – Cafe France vs Cagayan Valley

Kera Mix looks to rebound from a disappointing last assignment when it faces Jumbo Plastic on Monday in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at The Arena in San Juan.

The two teams resume their campaign at 1 p.m. with the Mixers eager for a bounce back victory to stay close behind league leader Cebuana Lhuillier.

The Mixers lost to the Gems, 88-95, last March 26 and is currently tied for second place with idle AMA University (2-1).

In contrast, the Giants are seeking a follow up to their 64-61 win against Hapee last March 23 to move up into a tie for second place.

Jumbo Plastic coach Steven Tiu said his revamped team still needs some jelling but hope to address the issue during the two-week break.

Café France also tries to win two in a row when it battles Cagayan Valley in the other game at 3 o’clock.

The Bakers (1-1) lost their opener to Cebuana Lhuillier, 85-86, but bounced back with a scrambling 68-62 win against Tanduay Light on March 23.

But they are expected to encounter a tough time against the Rising Suns (1-1), who are out to get back on the winning track following a their stunning 106-107 loss against MP Hotel on March 26.
