Senate, AFP start best-of-three title series
(The Philippine Star) - March 3, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Defending champion Senate and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) begin their best-of-three title series today with the former hoping to make history in the seventh UNTV Cup at the Pasig Sports Center.

Coming off an impressive 75-60 drubbing of Philippine National Police in the rubber match of their semis series, the Senate Defenders are bidding to become the first back-to-back champion in the annual tournament for public servants.

And even without Sen. Joel Villanueva who suffered a calf injury last Sunday, the Defenders are determined to start strong in their 5 p.m. showdown.

Fully rested after sweeping the NHA Builders in their own semis series two weeks ago, the Cavaliers have their own mission to accomplish and that is to win their third title in the event organized by UNTV president and CEO Dr. Daniel Razon.
