    158

    DEFENDING champion Armed Forces of the Philippines goes for its third straight win while former titlist Philippine National Police tries to rebound from an opening game setback in the 8th UNTV Cup today at the Pasig City Sports Center.

    The AFP Cavaliers go into their 3:30 p.m. showdown with the SSS Kabalikat fully rested from a week-long break in the annual tournament for public servants that offers P4 million to the chosen charity of the champion team.

    Clashing in the other Group I match at 5 p.m. are Department of Agriculture and Philippine International Trading Corp., with the former looking to notch its second straight win after a 78-73 win over the Ombudsman Graftbusters on Sept. 22.

    The PNP Responders, inaugural winners of the event organized by UNTV through its president and CEO Dr. Daniel Razon, collide with the DENR Warriors in the lone Group II match at 2 p.m. determined to make up for their 85-81 defeat to the NHA Builders on Sept. 15.
