Games Tomorrow (Pasig City Sports Center)
2 p.m. – PhilHealth vs Judiciary
3:30p.m. – DOJ vs PNP
5p.m. – NHA vs Malacañang-PSC
National Housing Authority (NHA) hopes to remain hot despite a month-long break when it faces dangerous Malacañang-Philippine Sports Commission tomorrow in Group B elims of the 7th UNTV Cup at the Pasig City Sports Center.
The NHA Builders and the Palace Kamao collide in the featured match at 5 p.m. with the former targeting a fourth straight win in the annual tournament for public servants with UNTV through its president and CEO Dr. Daniel Razon as organizer.
The last time they played was on Oct. 7 that saw them survive the Department of Agriculture Food Masters, 75-73, thanks to the valiant efforts of Antonio Lustestica and Marvin Mercado.
The loss dropped the Kamao to third place with the Food Masters grabbing second place at 3-1 in the event offering R4 million to the chosen charity of the champion team.
Both NHA and DA are already assured of second round berths – same thing for AFP and Senate in Group A .
In the other Group B match, the Judiciary Magis shoot for their second straight win when they tackle the PhilHealth Plus at 2 p.m. while the Philippine National Police (PNP) Responders take on the Department of Justice Boosters in the lone Group A match at 3:30 p.m.
The Magis, starring Chester Tolomia and Edu Mustre, ended a three-game losing run by overpowering the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 104-65.
Judiciary and PNP need to win their final first round matchdes to have better chances of making it to the second round since only the top four teams in each six-team group will advance.
