4:00 PM – Adamson vs La Salle

National University and University of the East stand on even ground heading into their last assignment in the first round of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The Bulldogs and the Red Warriors are plotting to leave one another alone in the bottom of the standings after their matchup on Saturday at the MOA Arena.

NU (1-5) hopes to put an end to its five-game slide even as UE (1-5) hopes to get another win for first-year head coach Joe Silva starting at 2:00 PM. As always, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.

In the day’s other game at 4:00 PM, De La Salle University (3-3) stands in the way of a bounce back win for Adamson University (5-1).
