Aside from the PBA superstars from both teams, Rain or Shine and Talk ‘n Text, basketball followers are also keen to see Norman Black, the new head coach of TNT as he leads the team in an out-of-town PBA Philippine Cup game in Victorias City this Saturday.
After winning his fifth straight championship in the UAAP with the Ateneo Blue Eagles, Black is back as head coach of Talk ‘n Text. The team presently carries a 4-0 win-loss card and aims to tighten its grip on the leadership in the team standings.
The Texters, however, will be up for a tough game against Rain or Shine, who remains lethal after capturing the 2012 PBA Governor’s Cup a couple of months back.
The game in Victorias City is schedule to start at 6:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, Petron Blaze pulled off a 98-95 win last night against Barangay Ginebra at the at the MOA Arena.
The Boosters survived on Joseph Yeo and Alex Cabagnot endgame heroics to nail its second win against three losses in the tournament.
Petron coach Olsen Racela said they managed to pull off a great team effort despite losing another key player, Danny Ildefonso, to injury.
Ildefonso suffered a dislocated shoulder in the second quarter and may well miss their next few games.
Out for the second straight game was this year’s top pick Junmar Fajardo, who’s smarting from a groin surgery.*NAB
