Only one team will remain winless after today's 1st UNTV Cup games at the Pasig Sports Center in Pasig City.

Early leaders Philippine National Police and PhilHealth stake their clean slate as they go up against each other in the opening game of a triple-header at 2:30 p.m.

Both teams have won their first two games and today's winner to firm up their drive for the outright semifinals seats to be given to the top two squads after the single round elimination.

The last placer after the one-round robin elimination will be eliminated with the top two teams to advance outright into the Final Four. The next four teams collide in the crossover quarterfinals with the number three and four teams to enjoy the twice-to-beat advantage.

Congress-LGU meanwhile seek to rebound back from a 73-98 stinging loss at the hands to PhilHealth as they take on winless Metro Manila Development Authority at 4:00 p.m. while Judiciary and Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) collide in the final game at 5:30 p.m.
Judiciary is coming off a 130-60 thrashing over Department of Justice for their first win in two outings.

They however should expect a tough outing against the AFP, which is eyeing to bounce back from a 69-72 heart-breaking defeat to PNP in their last outing.
