Prior to the NCAA 92 Men’s Basketball Tournament, University of Perpetual Help only have a total of three playoff berths in their school history.
And all three have come to an early end at the hands of San Beda College.
The two teams find themselves in a familiar place on Friday at the MOA Arena as the top-seeded Red Lions look to knock out the fourth-seeded Altas and advance into the Finals without any problem.
Looking to give them a problem, however, are Perpetual who will go all out to stay alive starting at 1:45 PM and Final Four 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.
San Beda bested Arellano University in back-to-back outings to clinch the number one seed for the 11th year in a row. Even without Donald Tankoua, Javee Mocon and company are rounding into form and are nothing but determined to make their 11th Finals in a row.
Nothing will come easy, however, against the Altas who are welcoming back Nigerian powerhouse Bright Akhuetie following his school-sanctioned one-game suspension.
