Game on Thursday in Mapua University
4:00 PM – Mapua vs Perpetual
University of Perpetual Help is the only winless team in the 93rd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Altas want nothing more than to change that when they enter Mapua University in Intramuros, Manila to challenge the home team Cardinals on Thursday.
The NCAA on Tour rolls along with this Seniors matchup tipping off at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Perpetual came out on top in its opener against College of St. Benilde, but saw the decision get overturned by the league after it wore the wrong set of uniforms. It then dropped its second game against Jose Rizal University and for a standing of 0-2.
Looking to keep them on the ground is Mapua which is on a morale-high following an emotional win against rival Colegio de San Juan de Letran more than a week ago. Then, Andoy Estrella’s game-winner lifted them to 1-1 in the season.
In Juniors action, defending champion Malayan High School of Science is out to move back into first-place when it takes on the Perpetual Junior Altas at 2:00 PM.
