MACAU --- Coach Yeng gets his rematch.

NLEX is out to exit the Super 8 tournament here on a high note as the Road Warriors take on the Etland Elephants again Sunday, this time for third place.

Both the Road Warriors and the Elephants lost their semifinals against the Guangzhou Long Lions and the Samsung Thunders respectively Saturday and both teams will have to settle for the opportunity to win bronze.

The Elephants already beat NLEX Wednesday during preliminary play as they swept their way to first place in Group B.

The Road Warriors have been looking for revenge since and they finally have the opportunity now, with a podium finish on the line.

Tip off will be at 5:00 p.m. Sunday live from the Macau East Asian Games Dome.
