Games Today (The Arena, San Juan City)
4:15 p.m. — Cignal vs Generika-Ayala
7:00 p.m. — Sta. Lucia Realty vs Smart
Teams from the lower half of the eight-team field gun for morale-boosting victories today as the classification phase of the Chooks to Go-Philippine Superliga (PSL) Grand Prix draws to a close at The Arena in San Juan City.
Cignal squares off with Generika-Ayala at 4:15 p.m. before Sta. Lucia collides with free-falling Smart in the 7 p.m. main-header, all of them looking to give themselves added confidence ahead of the playoff round.
All eyes will be Cuban sensation Gyselle Silva as she tries to come up with a strong encore to a record-breaking 56-point explosion against Cocolife over the weekend and help the Giga Hitters get over the hump on their 10th try.
Smart is already locked in a quarterfinal duel with defending champion F2 Logistics (9-1) armed with a twice-to-beat edge in the quarterfinals Saturday at the Gen. Trias Sports Center in Cavite, and a breakthrough win at the expense of dangerous Sta. Lucia will give it badly needed tonic.
