IT'S A NEW DAY.
Games on Saturday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – San Sebastian vs San Beda
4:00 PM – Mapua vs Arellano
No more Allwell Oraeme for Mapua University and no more Jiovani Jalalon for Arellano University in the 93rd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Now, it will be up to King Cardinal Andoy Estrella and High Chief Kent Salado to tow their respective sides when they collide in opening day Saturday at the MOA Arena.
The rematch of last year’s semifinals begins at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream.
Salado will still have Lervin Flores by his side as Arellano tries to prove its fate isn’t tied to “Bus Driver” Jalalon.
The same can’t be said for Estrella and the Cardinals who, in addition to last year’s MVP, also lost Joseph Eriobu, CJ Isit, and Darrel Menina.
Season 93 officially commences with opening ceremonies to be held at 12:00 PM.
