CEU ‘ready’ for must-win game vs Racal

Contenders for the past few conferences in the PBA D-League, Centro Escolar University has suddenly found itself on a precarious position, with its fate hanging in the balance on the final day of the 2017 Foundation Cup eliminations.

But for coach Yong Garcia, he’s just glad that the Scorpions have their luck on their hands.

“It’s a do-or-die game for us, so we know the stakes of the game,” he said in Filipino.

Sitting idle at 5-4, CEU will play its final elimination game against Racal Motors on Tuesday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

A win can propel the Scorpions to as high as the fourth-seed, armed with a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals granting if Batangas loses to Flying V in the second game.

However, a defeat will allow Wangs Basketball to take the final ticket to the playoffs, leaving CEU out of the playoffs for the first time since the 2014 Aspirants’ Cup, when it lost the seat to Blackwater due to having an inferior quotient.
