LPU's unbeaten run is on the line against Perpetual
Games on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
12:00 PM – Letran vs Mapua
2:00 PM – CSB vs Arellano
4:00 PM – Perpetual vs LPU
Lyceum of the Philippines University is very much on track for a second straight elimination round sweep now in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Several obstacles still stand in the way of the Pirates, however, and the latest one is a University of Perpetual Help side nothing but determined for a boost in its playoff push on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
LPU is out for a lucky 13th win in as many games in the season opposite the Altas (6-5) who are out to build for a much welcome win run at 4:00 PM. Of course, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Meanwhile, Colegio de San Juan de Letan (7-4) is wary of suddenly streaking Intramuros neighbor Mapua University (4-8) at 12:00 PM while Arellano University (4-7) commences its post-Jerry Codinera era versus College of St. Benilde (7-5) at 2:00 PM.
In Juniors action, the defending champion CSB-La Salle Greenhills Junior Blazers (10-2) try for a bounce back win opposite the Arellano Braves (5-6) who are desperate for a winning streak at 8:00 AM. There will also be matchups between the Mapua Red Robins (9-3) and the Letran Squires (3-8) at 10:00 AM and between the Perpetual Junior Altas (5-6) and the LPU Junior Pirates (5-7) at 6:00 PM.
