CLOSING IN. Arellano and Perpetual want nothing more than to keep streaking all the way to the top of the standings.
Games on Tuesday at the San Juan Arena
12:00 PM – Perpetual vs EAC
2:00 PM – Arellano vs LPU
4:00 PM – San Sebastian vs JRU
With things getting interesting in the 92nd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, University of Perpetual Help and Arellano University want nothing more than to keep their respective winning streaks going and keep themselves in the running among the league-leaders.
And in doing so against separate opponents at the San Juan Arena, Tuesday, both the Altas and the Chiefs will both move into a share of second spot.
All of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/ncaa.
Perpetual is after a fourth consecutive victory when they faceoff with much-improved Emilio Aguinaldo College at 12:00 PM. Workhorses Bright Akhuetie and Gab Dagangon will again show the way and they will be met head on by the Generals’ own workhorses in double-double machines Hamadou Laminou and Sidney Onwubere.
Right after at 2:00 PM, Arellano is out to score a third win in a row at the expense of also on the rise Lyceum of the Philippines University. Jiovani Jalalon is still steering the bus with Kent Salado and Lervin Flores in tow and they will have to find a way through the Pirates’ powerhouse Harry Nzeusseu.
Meanwhile, Jose Rizal University seeks to get off the ground once more by using struggling San Sebastian College-Recoletos as a runway at 4:00 PM.
