Vipers, Kings battle for breakthrough win

BREAKTHROUGH win will be at stake when Group B cellar-dwellers Hyperwash and Alberei face off on Monday in the 2019 PBA D-League Foundation Cup at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

The Vipers have been on the wrong end of the spectrum in their initial foray in the developmental ranks, losing their first two games by a margin of 39 points against their bracket's top teams.

Their recent loss was a 129-72 decimation at the hands of BRT Sumisip Basilan-St. Clare last August 1.

But a deeper reassessment could get the Vipers on the right track as they lean on former UST Growling Tigers Khasim Mirza and Jeric Fortuna.

Alberei, meanwhile, suffered a shameful 86-82 defeat to Black Mamba last week where it squandered an 18-point fourth quarter lead.
