MAKE IT SO.
Games on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
2:00 PM – LPU vs San Beda
4:00 PM – San Sebastian vs Perpetual
Arellano University and Colegio de San Juan de Letran have taken care of business and now, it’s San Sebastian College-Recoletos’ turn to do so in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Golden Stags will go all-out to give themselves a fighting chance for the fourth and final playoff berth by beating still dangerous University of Perpetual Help on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Baste (8-9) wants nothing more than a three-team logjam for the fourth spot, but the Altas (4-13) want nothing more than to play spoiler at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
The game is must-win for San Sebastian which needs to tie the 9-9 Chiefs and Knights to stay alive.
If a three-team tie takes place, the Golden Stags will get a bye due to their superior quotient among the three teams while Arellano and Letran duke it out for dear life on Friday.
The winner there will then face Baste next Tuesday.
Whoever triumphs there will finally complete the playoff picture.
In the day’s other game at 2:00 PM, still undefeated Lyceum of the Philippines University figures in a highly-anticipated rematch with defending champion San Beda College.
In the Juniors division, the San Beda Red Cubs (12-5) look to give themselves a shot at the top-seed at the expense of the LPU Junior Pirates (7-9) at 12:00 PM while the San Sebastian Staglets (10-7) look to stay in the hunt for a playoff berth when they take on the Perpetual Junior Altas (6-10) at 6:00 PM.
