Games on Friday at Cuneta Astrodome

12:00 p.m - Letran vs CSB

2:00 p.m. - San Beda vs Mapua

4:00 p.m. - Arellano vs San Sebastian

San Beda University has, thus far, remained unscathed in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament.

Standing in the way of a clean sweep of the first round for the Red Lions on Friday at Cuneta Astrodome, however, is a Mapua University side that has been flying high as of late.

The defending champions go for their ninth win in as many games while the Cardinals go for a fourth win in a row starting at 2:00 p.m. 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.

Before this, there will be a heavyweight bout between College of St. Benilde and Colegio de San Juan de Letran at 12:00 p.m.

Both the Blazers and the Knights have undergone untimely struggles in the past weeks and want nothing more than to get back on track heading into Round 2.

There will also be a matchup between San Sebastian College-Recoletos and Arellano University at 4:00 p.m.

Meanwhile, the Jrs. tournament will then see a big-time battle between powerhouses Mapua Red Robins and San Beda Red Cubs at 10:00 a.m.

For the first time ever, the best and brightest young talent in the country will be on livestream.
