Magnolia and champion import Romeo Travis face Meralco and topnotch reinforcement Allen Durham in an intriguing matchup to start their title defense in the PBA Governors Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum Saturday.
It’s an explosive tiff to highlight the first Petron Blaze Saturday Special in the season-ending tourney, pitting the titleholder versus coach Norman Black’s team which has never missed at least the Final Four in the last three editions of the Governors’ Cup.
Tip off is at 6:45 p.m.
Travis and the Hotshots won the crown over the Alaska Milk Aces last year while Durham and the Bolts barely missed another shot at the crown following runner-up finishes behind the Barangay Ginebra Kings in 2016 and 2017.
Travis and Durham, huge factors in their respective teams’ A1 showings in this tourney, could still be on top of their game, and both are hopeful of again contending for the crown.
