QUEZON CITY--Racal and Phoenix-FEU will return to the PBA D-League battleground as they take on separate opponents in their Foundation Cup debut at the JCSGO Gym on Tuesday.

The Tile Masters, formerly known as Caida, face the AMA Titans in the first game at 2 p.m., while the Accelerators, the reigning Aspirants Cup champs, take on opening day winners Tanduay Rhum Masters at 4 p.m.

Phoenix-FEU, however, is expected to be shorthanded come Tuesday as some of their players will be at the FilOil Flying V Preseason Premier Cup quarterfinal game against La Salle at 5 p.m. at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Still, already-graduated Tamaraws Mac Belo and Mike Tolomia, who were fresh from a successful stint for the Gilas Cadets in the SEABA Stankovic Cup, will bolster the Accelerators alongside UST reinforcement Ed Daquioag.

Russel Escoto, Raymar Jose, and RR Pogoy, who are also part of the SEABA team, will likewise provide firepower for Phoenix-FEU
