Ateneo duels Cansino-less UST to end elims in UAAP 81

Matt Nieto and Ateneo still have their sights set on a fine finish to the UAAP 81 eliminations

Games on Wednesday at the MOA Arena

2:00 PM – Ateneo vs UST

4:00 PM – UP vs La Salle

Whatever happens, Ateneo de Manila University is the top-seed in the Final Four of the 81st Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.

That doesn’t mean, however, that the Blue Eagles would go easy in their last assignment in the elimination round even up against a University of Sto. Tomas side that would no longer have super rookie CJ Cansino on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.

Ateneo (11-2) guns for a fine finish to the eliminations – the exact same thing the Growling Tigers (5-8) are gunning for starting at 2:00 PM. Of course, all of and the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.

Meanwhile, a playoff berth is up for grabs in a showdown between the University of the Philippine (7-6) and De La Salle University (8-5) at 4:00 PM.
