PBA DL: CafeFrance sizzles

Defending champion CaféFrance played with a business-like approach and crushed Topstar ZC Mindanao, 89-64, yesterday in the opener of the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

Paul Zamar, Carl Bryan Cruz and Samboy de Leon did most of the damage in the first half that saw the Bakers led by as many as 22 points before dousing cold water on the Aguilas’ rally in the third quarter on their way to starting their title-retention bid on a high note.

Cruz topscored with 21 points while added 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting for CaféFrance, which is also seeking to rebound from its heartbreaking five-game loss to Phoenix in the Aspirants Cup finals last April.
