GET BACK. LPU is eyeing to gift neighboring Letran what would be a disastrous third consecutive defeat.
Games on Thursday at the San Juan Arena
2:00 PM – Mapua vs JRU
4:00 PM – Letran vs LPU
Lyceum of the Philippines University registered a victory versus the defending champions as their breakthrough in the 92nd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
They have a chance to do themselves one better on Thursday at the San Juan Arena as the Pirates look to send Colegio de San Juan de Letran into what would be a disastrous third consecutive defeat.
This new-age Battle of Intramuros begins at 4:00 PM and 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.
The loss to LPU started the Knights’ first skid in the season. Now with back-to-back losses, Rey Nambatac and company are nothing but determined to get their campaign back on track.
Also nothing but determined, however, are LPU who have all the confidence they need for an encore against the defending champions. Harry Nzeusseu will once again pose to be a problem for their foes.
Meanwhile, Mapua Institute of Technology and Jose Rizal University fight over a winning streak when they meet in the middle of the court at 2:00 PM.
The Cardinals are coming off a big win against Letran while the Heavy Bombers had just felled San Beda the last time around.
