RISE. A win will move either DLSU or UE from the bottom half to the top half of the standings.
Games on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – DLSU vs UE
4:00 PM – FEU vs Adamson
As the 78th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament, both De La Salle University and University of the East stand unimpressive at the bottom half of the standings.
The Green Archers and the Red Warriors look to shake things up as they contest a statement win on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Tip-off is set 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 two teams’ two wins apiece have come against National University which was still searching for its defensive identity when they met and Adamson University which remains winless to this day.
DLSU opened the season by downing the Bulldogs before suffering back-to-back defeats. The Taft-based squad stopped the bleeding with a win against Adamson the last time around, but the fact remains that the fully-loaded roster is yet to coalesce.
Meanwhile, UE dropped their season-opener before ringing off back-to-back wins. The Recto-based team then looked great in their next two outings until falling off late as the inexperience of its rookie-laden lineup showed.
