Banal vs Banal; Teng suits up for Marinero

Unbeaten Flying V returns from a 13-day layoff today with the expectation of a tough challenge from Marinerong Pilipino in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The Thunder stake their three-game winning run against the Skippers in the 5 p.m. duel, with Jeron Teng seeing action for the first time since representing the Philippines in the FIBA 3×3 World Cup in Nantes, France.

Coach Eric Altamirano, who was also Teng’s mentor in the 3×3 tourney, is hoping that the long break won’t have a negative effect on his squad, especially with a tough schedule ahead.

“The next three games will be very tough for us – Marinero, Racal and Tanduay – so hopefully di kami maging rusty because of the long break,” said Altamirano.

Also tasked to give Teng the needed support are Eric Salamat, Aris Dionisio and Gab Banal, who scored 29 points in Flying V’s 107-96 win over Wangs Basketball last June 13.

Banal will face a Marinerong Pilipino side coached by his uncle Koy Banal and assisted by his father Joel.
