PASIG--The four teams that are currently at the cellar of the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup standings will take centerstage in a Thursday doubleheader at the Ynares Sports Arena.

BDO-NU will return from a long layoff to take on winless Mindanao at 2 p.m., while AMA, the other team searching for its first win, will clash with Wang's at 4 p.m.

The Titans and the Couriers both came from painful defeats on Tuesday at the hands of the Tanduay Rhum Masters and the Cafe France-CEU Bakers respectively.

On the other hand, the Bulldogs, despite currently at sixth place in the nine-team field, are just a full game behind the Rhum Masters and the UP-QRS-JAM Fighting Maroons, and they look to move closer to both clubs with a win over the Aguilas, who are still groping for form in their maiden campaign.
