Ateneo determined to push UP to the brink
Games on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – FEU vs NU
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs UP
In a Battle of Katipunan that has more implications than usual, Ateneo de Manila University and the University of the Philippines will go toe-to-toe on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Blue Eagles are determined to keep their unbeaten run going at the expense of the Maroons who are themselves determined to keep fighting in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
A win for Ateneo (12-0) will let them stay on pace for a sweep of the elimination round and will let them have all the momentum heading into their highly-anticipated rivalry game with De La Salle University on Sunday.
On the other hand, a win for UP (5-7) will breathe life to their fading playoff hopes while also ensuring that there will be a Final Four.
All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream with tip-off at 4:00 PM.
Meanwhile, Far Eastern University seeks to oust National University from contention at 2:00 PM.
