A showdown between playoff hopefuls San Sebastian and Perpetual will decide who moves up in the standings
Game on Thursday at the Perpetual Gym in Las Pinas
4:00 PM – Perpetual vs San Sebastian
Even without RK Ilagan, San Sebastian College-Recoletos has no plans of slowing down in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
To get their first winning streak, however, the Golden Stags will have to go through dangerous University of Perpetual Help in the middle of its home court in Las Pinas on Thursday.
Baste (3-4) goes for back-to-back wins while the Altas (2-2) go for a bounce back win starting at 4:00 PM. As always, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
San Sebastian arrested its two-game slide just last Tuesday and want nothing more than to turn it into a two-game streak. With gunner Ilagan suspended for the rest of the first round, it will be up to Michael Calisaan and Allyn Bulanadi to take a stand.
That’s not going to come easy, though, as Perps wants nothing more than to get back on track after their setback a week ago. With the home crowd behind them, Prince Eze and Edgar Charcos will have their confidence at the highest it could be.
In Juniors action at 2:00 PM, the Perpetual Junior Altas (3-1) have their sights set on a share of second, but it will have to come at the expense of the San Sebastian Staglets (3-4).
