Gamboa Coffee faces Go for Gold in PBA D-League
(The Philippine Star) - January 22, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Gamboa Coffee Mix-St. Clare collides with Go for Gold while Che’Lu Bar and Grill-SSC-R tangles with Perpetual Help at resumption of the PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup at the Pasig Sports Center today.

The Coffee Lovers, backed by three-time NAASCU champion St. Clare, take on the Scratchers at 2 p.m. with the former going for a strong start after a dismal 1-9 debut last conference.

Go for Gold also tries to make an early impact on a team built around the St. Benilde core and backstopped by JJ Alejandro, Kent Salado, Matt Salem and ex-pro Jerwin Gaco.

“We’re hoping to compete against them because we’re a very young team and they are a team that’s been together for a while. It’s going to be a tough challenge for us,” said Go for Gold coach Charles Tiu.

Frankie Lim, meanwhile, debuts with the Altas in their 4 p.m. clash with the Revellers whose core is formed behind another NCAA team in San Sebastian.

“I was just appointed as the head coach last week and I’ll have to make do with the team that I saw when I came,” said newly tapped UPHSD coach Lim.

“We’ll just have to make the best out of it,” Lim added.
