At the end of the first round of the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Jose Rizal University and Colegio de San Juan de Letran were sitting pretty inside the top four.

JRU (6-4) and Letran (5-5) battle for the third spot beginning at 2:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Meanwhile, Emilio Aguinaldo College and Mapua University dispute a much-needed win at 4:00 PM.
In Juniors action, the Malayan Red Robins (10-2) eye a move into solo first when they take on the EAC Brigadiers (1-9). There will also be a matchup between the Letran Squires (6-4) and the JRU Light Bombers (3-7).
