These are the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament games from October 15 to 18 all of us just CAN NOT miss!

TUESDAY, 2:00 p.m., San Sebastian vs Arellano

After a big-time takedown of LPU, San Sebastian dropped a crucial contest to Mapua. Now, the Golden Stags will have to work double time to hold on to the fourth spot – and the first step in doing so is taking care of business against also-ran yet still dangerous Arellano.

The Golden Stags and the Chiefs do battle and y'all can watch on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, and iWant as well as livestream.

TUESDAY, 4:00 p.m., CSB vs JRU

One more loss and CSB will be eliminated from contention – this, after a school-best 5-0 start to the season. Still, the Blazers have a shot at saving their best for last, but that is if and only if they could solve the puzzle in front of them in the form of already eliminated, but still daring JRU.

The Blazers and the Light Bombers do battle and y'all can watch on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, and iWant as well as livestream.

THURSDAY, 12:00 p.m., Red Cubs vs Jr. Pirates

In essence, San Beda no longer has anything to play for the rest of the way in the elimination round, having been locked into the top-seed for quite a while now. That doesn’t mean, however, that the Red Cubs would take it easy up against an LPU crew led by MVP favorite Mac Guadana that looks like one of their biggest rivals for the title.

The Red Cubs and the Jr. Pirates do battle and y'all can watch VIA LIVESTREAM.

THURSDAY, 2:00 p.m., Mapua vs Perpetual

Mapua is peaking at the right time in the season – so much so that after a 0-5 start, it finds itself right in the thick of things in the playoff race. The Cardinals big win against fellow playoff hopeful San Sebastian will be all for naught, however, if they would not be able to follow it up with another win at the expense of Perpetual.

The Cardinals and the Altas do battle and y'all can watch on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, and iWant as well as livestream.

THURSDAY, 4:00 p.m., San Beda vs LPU

Finals rematch… rematch! San Beda triumphed over LPU in the two teams’ first meeting since last year’s Finals. The Red Lions are only hoping for an encore – an encore that would send them straight into the Finals via a clean sweep of the eliminations. The Pirates have other ideas about that, of course.

The Red Lions and the Pirates do battle and y'all can watch on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, and iWant as well as livestream.
