PUERTO PRINCESA—Jeron Teng's much-anticipated PBA D-League debut will happen right on Day 1 of the season-opening Aspirants Cup.

As announced by the league on Sunday, Teng and the rest of his new crew, the AMA Titans, will battle newcomer squad Batangas in the first game of the conference on Jan. 19 at 3 p.m. at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig, right after the opening ceremonies at 2 p.m.

While the full schedule will be released at a later date, the D-League also announced the format of the 10-team tournament.

All the teams will play each other in a single round robin elimination round.

The top two teams after the eliminations will enter the best-of-three semifinals outright.

Meanwhile, the next four clubs will play in another round to determine the other two semifinalists. The third and the fourth ranked teams have twice-to-beat advantages in the quarterfinals.

The semifinal survivors will engage in another best-of-three affair to decide the champion.

Games will be played every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday with the first game at 3 p.m. and the second game at 5 p.m.
