Meanwhile, upstarts wage war against one another when Mapua University takes on College of St. Benilde at 12:00 PM while San Sebastian College-Recoletos rekindles its age-old rivalry with Colegio de San Juan de Letran at 4:00 PM.

Juniors action will then see a Finals rematch between the defending champion LSGH Greenies (1-0) and the runner-up Mapua Red Robins (0-1) at 8:00 AM. There will also be matchups between the JRU Light Bombers (1-0) and the LPU Junior Pirates (1-1) at 10:00 AM as well as between the San Sebastian Staglets (1-1) and the Letran Squires (0-1) at 6:00 PM.
