The Talk ‘N Text KaTropa Texters is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Blackwater Elite at 7:00 P.M. on January 17, 2018 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The KaTropa suddenly found themselves lurking at the bottom of the 2017-18 PBA Philippine Cup standings after absorbing its second defeat while the Elite is on its way climbing to the very top chasing the Beermen and the Hotshots.
Just like their team moniker says, Blackwater is now becoming on of the Elite teams in PBA and they’re now considered as one of the serious title contender teams this All-Filipino conference.
Coach Leo Isaac and the rest of the Blackwater franchise are slowly reaping rewards with the new acquisitions they have formed. Last season, they have drafted Mac Belo then later in the Governors’ they have added Allein Maliksi.
This year, they have used their third-pick rights to draft another dependable big-man and that is Raymar Jose.
“They are truly one of the up and coming teams in the league. They are building their team the right way,” said Ginebra coach Tim Cone.
Talk ‘N Text is currently in a roller coaster ride in their last three-game outing. They got defeated by Rain or Shine in their season debut then bounced back versus the Aces and then again lost to San Miguel in their out-of-town game in Iloilo.
KaTropa was in control majority of the quarters in the University of San Agustin Gym until the joint scoring explosion of Arwind Santos and Alex Cabagnot in the final quarter.
TNT as well as the many PBA fans are expecting that the Best Point Guard in Asia, Jayson Castro William will switch on his beast-mode this evening only to pull his team from the league’s losing pit.
