Games on Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre
12:00 p.m. - Perpetual vs San Beda
2:00 p.m. - JRU vs Mapua
4:00 p.m. - CSB vs LPU
College of St. Benilde remains unscathed in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament, but coming right for them is smooth sailing Lyceum of the Philippines University.
The Blazers stake their spotless slate while the Pirates put their five-game win run on the line in the clash of titans in the middle of the Filoil Flying V Centre floor, Friday.
Starting at 4:00 p.m., CSB is out to ace its toughest test thus far in the season even as LPU is out to stretch its streak ahead of its rematch with the defending champions. As always all of the action will be on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and livestream.
Also hoping for a morale-boosting win ahead of the rematch of last year's Finals is San Beda University which will take on a University of Perpetual Help side on a downward spiral at 12:00 p.m. while Mapua University is hoping its newfound groove will take it even farther at the expense of Jose Rizal University at 2:00 p.m.
In Jrs. action, defending champion Mapua Red Robins also seek a bigger boost for its playoff push when they take on the dangerous JRU Light Bombers at 10:00 a.m.
There will also be big-time battles between league-leading San Beda Red Cubs and daring Perpetual Jr. Altas at 8:00 a.m. as well as between second-running CSB-La Salle Green Hills Jr. Blazers and fourth-running LPU Jr. Pirates at 6:00 p.m.
For the first time ever, the best and brightest young talent in the country will be on livestream.
