Star seeks to formally gain entry to the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals as it takes on Meralco on Saturday at Ynares Center in Antipolo.

The Hotshots, currently at 5-4, are coming off a 111-95 win over Blackwater last Wednesday, and a victory would clinch them a seat in the playoffs.

More importantly, if Star nabs win number six, it will be a huge boost for the team and keeps it in play from closing in for that coveted top two spot.

Banking on their back-to-back wins, Hotshots coach Chito Victolero is taking a positive outlook as he looks forward to these final two outings.

“I told them na ito na yung start ng playoffs namin. I know the boys are mentally tough. They’re veterans and I can see that even in practice, they have a sense of urgency while enjoying ourselves,” he said. –
