Streaking Bulldogs battle struggling Maroons

HERE AND THERE. NU and UP own different kinds of streaks.
Games on Saturday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – UP vs NU
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs UST
Two teams trending in opposite directions will be pitted against each other as the 78th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament continues to heat up.
Defending champion National University hopes to keep rolling while upstart University of the Philippines hopes to roll back into the win column on Saturday at the MOA Arena.
NU’s winning streak collides with UP’s losing skid at 2:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com.
The Bulldogs look to have completely moved past their 0-3 start with back-to-back wins coming in impressive fashion. More importantly for the defending champions, Alfred Aroga found his defensive dominance once again while also showing improvement at the other end.
Conversely, the Fighting Maroons of late do not look like the newsmakers who surprised via a 2-0 start. While the season hosts have remained competitive, their lack of experience has clearly shown in two consecutive defeats at the hands of more seasoned opponents.
