Streaking Pirates face winless Tams
(The Philippine Star) - May 20, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Lyceum of the Joey Villar Philippines University hopes to stay unscathed and on top of Group B as it shoots for a fourth straight win against Far Eastern U in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup 2019 at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City today.

The Pirates swept their first three games, including a 101-95 victory over the Letran Knights in a duel of unbeaten teams last Friday that primed up the back-to-back NCAA runners-up against the Tams at 2:15 p.m.

The match is between a streaking team against a squad still in search of a first victory. FEU dropped its first two games to Letran, 70-75, last May 10 and to National U, 77-82, last Tuesday.

While LPU has been drawing the needed numbers from mainstays Mike Nzeusseu, Reymar Caduyac and Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee, new acquisitions Jayson David and Enzo Navarro, who came from San Sebastian, have provided added firepower to the Muralla-based squad.

“We want to learn everyday and get the chemistry that we envision because we have several new guys in the team,” said LPU coach Topex Robinson.
