UP, UP, AND AWAY. Teytey Teodoro and JRU are targetting solo fourth at the expense of EAC.
Games on Tuesday at the San Juan Arena
12:00 PM – San Sebastian vs LPU
2:00 PM – JRU vs EAC
4:00 PM – CSB vs Letran
Gaining altitude by coming out on top in each of their last four outings, Jose Rizal University looks to use yet another win to ascend to solo fourth in the NCAA 92 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
That’s easier said than done, however, with the Heavy Bombers headed for turbulence as they clash with daring Emilio Aguinaldo College at the San Juan Arena, Tuesday.
The Generals are certain to leave their all on the floor as they try to stop JRU at 2:00 PM. 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.
Meanwhile, defending champion Colegio de San Juan de Letran will have to try and stop their bleeding less three players against College of St. Benilde at 4:00 PM.
Knights Jerrick Balanza, Chris Dela Pena, and Marco Sario were all suspended following their involvement in a late-game scuffle with archrival San Beda last Friday. Ergo, Rey Nambatac will have to do even more heavy lifting up against the desperate 0-12 Blazers who want nothing more than to finally barge into the win column.
In the day’s other game, San Sebastian College-Recoletos guns for a fourth consecutive victory versus Lyceum of the Philippines University at 12:00 PM.
