JUST LIKE OLD TIMES.
Games on Saturday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – San Sebastian vs San Beda
4:00 PM – Mapua vs Arellano
San Beda College’s bid for back-to-back championships in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament will immediately be put to the test.
The Red Lions will go all out in sending a statement against resurgent powerhouse San Sebastian College-Recoletos in opening day Saturday at the MOA Arena.
The first game of the season pits the hosts against the defending champions and it tips off at 2:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream.
San Beda has brought back the entire band – sans Dan Sara – for its title defense. All of Robert Bolick, Davon Potts, Javee Mocon, Finals MVP Arnaud Noah, and Most Improved Player Donald Tankoua are as determined as ever to reinforce their team’s dominance.
The same goes for the Golden Stags who also feature last year’s core, only a year better and wiser. Michael Calisaan, Ryan Costelo, Jayson David, and RK Ilagan are all ready to bring their squad back into relevance.
Before the first game of the season, Season 93 officially commences with opening ceremonies to be held at 12:00 PM.
