WE GOT THIS. Both momentum and confidence are with San Beda as they enter their third meeting with Arellano.
Games on Tuesday at the San Juan Arena
4:00 PM – San Beda vs Arellano
San Beda College has triumphed over Arellano University in both of their meetings thus far in the 92nd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Red Lions have been the tournament top-seed for all of the last decade.
Those two things come to a head when San Beda goes all out for their 11th straight number one-seed at the expense of the Chiefs on Tuesday at the San Juan Arena.
The bell rings on round three of this modern-day dynasty at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 and ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/ncaa.
Arellano were well on their way to the top-seed until the Lions halted them last Friday and forced a playoff.
Both momentum and confidence are with the Mendiola-based squad to have gotten the better of their Legarda rivals. Still, Jiovani Jalalon and crew aren’t going down that easy to Davon Potts and company.
The victor in the playoff will take on four-seed University of Perpetual Help while the other will settle for a matchup with three-seed Mapua Institute of Technology in the Final Four commencing on Thursday.
