Could there be another San Beda-LPU in the elimination round just to determine playoff seeding?
Game on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
4:00 PM – LPU vs San Beda
In Round 2 of San Beda University versus Lyceum of the Philippines University in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, more than just bragging rights is at stake.
A win for either team will boost their respective bids for the top-seed in the tournament as the defending champion Red Lions wage war once more with the Pirates, last year’s runners-up, on Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Round 2 of the season’s most-anticipated matchup tips off at 4:00 PM and as always, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
A win for San Beda (15-1) not only lets them exact revenge on their rivals, but also makes sure they finish first at the end of the eliminations whatever happens in their last assignment.
On the other hand, a win for LPU (15-2) lets them sweep the defending champs in the elims and also makes sure that there will be, at the very least, a playoff for the top-seed whatever happens in the Red Lions’ last assignment.
The day’s other game will be a Juniors matchup with a lot of implications as the San Beda Red Cubs (11-5) are out to lock up the third-seed even as the LPU Junior Pirates (9-8) are out for their best finish in school history at 2:00 PM.
