Chooks-to-Go is in prime position to salvage fifth place in the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup.
Team Pilipinsa will face Thailand's Mono Vampire to end the consolation round of the Asian Club championships Sunday, a rematch from their previous Group A matchup.
Chooks-to-Go won that one, 115-102.
Losing back-to-back games to Petrochimi and Kashgar, the Philippines missed out on any medals. However, the team issued a big bounce back effort against Dubai to have this latest chance to finish in the top-5 of the 10-team field.
Gametime against Mono Vampire will be at 12:15 p.m. Saturday live from Chenzhou.
