Newcomer Bureau of Customs shoots for its fourth straight win when it faces Philippine National Police (PNP) tomorrow in a showdown between undefeated teams in the 5th UNTV Cup at the Pasig City Sports Center.
Coming off a wild but inspiring win over the House of the Representatives Solons, the BOC Transformers and the PNP Responders clash at 5p.m. with both teams determined to keep their unbeaten records intact.
The Transformers notched their third straight through the heroics of Jherome Ejercito who buried a buzzer-beating triple from midcourt for a 93-92 win.
Aside from Ejercito, also expected to produce good numbers for Customs are playing-coach Kenneth Duremdes and the 6-foot-9 Marlou Aquino.
Bannered by former University of the East player Ollan Omiping and Harold Sta. Cruz, the PNP Responders are toting a 2-0 card.
Meantime, the Department of Justice Booster try to snap a three-game losing run against Government Service Insurance System Furies at 2 p.m. while the Ombudsman Graft Fighters go for their second win in three starts against the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Black Wolves at 3:30 p.m.
The champion team in the annual tournament organized by UNTV president and CEO Daniel Razon gets P4 million which it will donate to its chosen charity. They will also receive P500,000 which will be shared by each member of the team.
