Games Monday (JCSGO Gym, Cubao)
11 a.m. – CEU vs CD14 Designs
1 p.m. – McDavid vs FamilyMart
Centro Escolar University seeks to extend its Foundation Group lead when it battles winless CD14 Designs-Trinity in the PBA D-League at the JCSGO Gym in Cubao.
The unbeaten Scorpions go for their fifth straight victory and move another step in securing a quarterfinals berth in the 11 a.m. match with the struggling Stallions.
Attention will be on CEU’s Senegalese center Maodo Malick Diouf as he suits up for the first time since setting a new league record 3 rebounds in a win over Valencia City-San Sebastian last March 19 at the Paco Arena in Manila.
Diouf, who stands nearly 6-foot-11, is averaging 16.3 points, 22.0 rebounds and 2.5 blocks this season.
Coach Derrick Pumaren is also banking Rich Guinitaran, Tyrone Chan, Judel Fuentes and Jan Formento to continue their solid plays for CEU despite facing a Trinity side sharing the worst record with SMDC-National University at 0-4.
Meanwhile, McDavid and FamilyMart-Enderun go for their first win in the Aspirants Group in the other game set at 1 p.m.
McDavid and FamilyMart hold similar 0-4 slates.
