Game on Thursday in EAC
4:00 PM – EAC vs LPU
Two years ago, Emilio Aguinaldo College was the very first team to defeat erstwhile undefeated and eventual champion Colegio de San Juan de Letran.
Now in the 93rd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, that erstwhile undefeated and eventual champion favorite has become Lyceum of the Philippines University.
And now, the Generals will be out to replicate their big-time upset from two years ago when they challenge in their home gym in San Marcelino, Manila the perfect Pirates on Thursday.
LPU stakes its spotless slate up against very, very confident EAC in an interesting tiff at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
The Pirates have rung off five consecutive victories to start the season, including ones against contenders Jose Rizal University, San Beda College, and San Sebastian College-Recoletos.
That’s not worrying the 3-2 Generals, however, who enter the matchup with back-to-back wins of their own. “We will not allow them to beat us on our home court,” head coach Ariel Sison ahead of their home game.
In Juniors action, the LPU Junior Pirates will be out to extend the misery of the winless EAC Brigadiers at 2:00 PM.
