Top Ranking Battle: Cool Smashers Take on Chargers

Powerhouse defending champion Creamline already has a No. 1 ranking in the playoffs

With a nine-game winning streak, the Cool Smashers & Akari team have nothing but pride to fight for. They face winless Galeries on Tuesday in a bid to sweep the PVL All-Filipino Conference. If they win, it will move the Cool Smashers within another victory of a sweep. Game time is 4 p.m. at PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Winning over the also-ran Chargers would give Creamline the No. 1 ranking in the playoff. Meanwhile, PLDT tries to fan its wafer-thin hopes of advancing when it battles F2 Logistics in the nightcap at 6 p.m.

Three slots in the final four have been filled

The first three slots in the final four have been filled with Choco Mucho and Chery Tiggo. PLDT is a far sixth at 5-4 and would need Cignal and Petro Gazz to take unlikely tumbles in their last games to forge a playoff for No. 4.

Galanza, Tots Carlos and Michele Gumabao banner the prolific Creamline offense as Akari will have to dig really deep if it is to foil the Cool Chargers, who have not shown signs of slowing down even after losing Jia de Guzman and Ced Domingo to leagues overseas. Galeries and Gerflor, rookie squads yet to taste a win, battle in the 2 p.m. opener. —Musong R. Castillo
