Metropac-San Beda and Chadao-FEU face off on Thursday in the 2019 PBA D-League at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Coach Boyet Fernandez hopes that the Movers have learned their lessons from their recent defeat against CEU. The loss dealt the Mendiola-base team its first defeat in three games.
In contrast, the Tamaraws are coming off a 106-81 win over The Masterpiece Clothing-Trinity last week.
That means FEU enjoys some momentum heading to the 4 p.m. match pitting Foundation Group teams.
FEU coach Olsen Racela maintains their goal for participating in the tournament to get better and attain collective development for his troops.
"Ang sinabi ko lang sa kanila, we're here to get better each game. It doesn't matter if we're on a losing streak, but if we feel na nagi-improve kami, ok kami kasi yun ang goal namin," he said.
FEU's L-Jay Gonzales, who's netting 11.0 points, 5.75 rebounds, and 3.25 assists per game, will be marked man as the Tamaraw's try to improve to 3-2 card. .
