SAN JUAN, MM--Cafe France-CEU and Phoenix-FEU look to set up an all-collegiate team PBA D-League Aspirants Cup Finals as they go for the jugular on Tuesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

The Bakers will try to end their series against the Tanduay Rhum Masters at 2 p.m., while the Accelerators will go for the 2-0 sweep of their own best-of-three Final Four affair with the Caida Tile Masters at 4 p.m.

"We're now one win away from our first goal which is to make it to the championship and we want to finish it up," said Cafe France coach Egay Macaraya.

Asked on whether his team, which survived a twice-to-beat disadvantage in the quarterfinals, can do a repeat of its huge rally in the last round, Tanduay coach Lawrence Chongson said, "I still like our chances, but we just need to settle down and take care of business come Tuesday."

On the other hand, Caida mentor Caloy Garcia believes, "We're still keeping our heads high because we know we're a team capable to bounce back."
