FEATURED STORIES

Alaska, GlobalPort, Meralco and the idle San Mig Coffee Mixers are in a four-way logjam at sixth spot with similar 4-7 (win-loss) records.

The Batang Pier have lost their last four games, while the Aces are coming off a close 117-121 overtime defeat to the defending champions Tropang Texters. Petron also lost in its last outing as it was stunned by the Barako Bull Energy Colas, 88-92.

The Boosters, who have lost three of their last four games, failed in their bid to tie the Barangay Ginebra Gin Kings, who lead the team standings with a 9-2 record.

Instead, the Boosters fell to two-way tie at second place with the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters with 8-3 records.

Meralco is the only team coming off a win in today’s twinbill as they pulled off a 92-88 win over the Air21 Express last Wednesday.

The Bolts got a major boost from new acquisition Danny Ildefonso, who finally saw action after being left unsigned by the Boosters.

The two-time MVP tallied 14 points, six rebounds, and a team-high five assists in 29 minutes of action./EDITORIAL ASSISTANT CALVIN D. CORDOVA
