PASIG--Right on the 30th anniversary of the first EDSA Revolution, Tanduay looks to continue its own revolution.

The Rhum Masters will try to lengthen their blistering run against the BDO-NU Bulldogs in a PBA D-League Aspirants Cup clash at the Ynares Sports Arena on Thursday at 4 p.m.

Tanduay, which started the conference with back-to-back losses, have now won four straight games and even ended the Cafe France-CEU's unbeaten run on Monday.

Now just a game behind the Bakers and the Caida Tile Masters for first place and a game ahead of the UP-QRS-JAM Fighting Maroons for the fourth and last twice-to-beat advantage berth, the Rhum Masters' eyes are not just on getting the quarterfinal bonus but even have a higher seeding.

"Our only hope is a sweep, and that will only give us [at least] the number three spot," Coach Lawrence Chongson said.

UP-QRS-JAM, on the other hand, will attempt to keep its own twice-to-beat bid alive as it takes on a slumping Wang's side at 2 p.m.
