PASIG--Racal reopened the PBA D-League Foundation Cup with a 124-65 blowout of Mindanao at the Ynares Sports Arena on Tuesday.

With the league back after nearly two weeks following the FIBA OQT, the Tile Masters wasted no time in dealing the Aguilas a devastating setback, starting the game on a 7-0 run, quickly turning it to a 23-8 cushion, and further swelling the lead to 59 at the final horn.

Jonathan Grey finished with 19 points, two rebounds, and four assists for Racal, which moved up to 6-2.

Gino Jumao-as had 16 points, five rebounds, and three assists for the now 0-7 Mindanao, who played without sick teammates JR Cawaling and Robin Roño.

This is the Tile Masters' second largest lopsided win of the conference, coming exactly three weeks after dealing the Blu-Malaysia Dragons a 62-point defeat on June 21.
