Tigers’ top spot threatened by Archers

KEEP IT UP. UST wants to remain atop the leaderboard while DLSU wants to climb just a rung higher.
Games on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
11:00 AM – FEU vs Ateneo
4:00 PM – UST vs DLSU
With Kevin Ferrer and Ed Daquioag already in form, University of Sto. Tomas has ambushed just about everyone in the 78th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament all the way to first-place.
Raring to stay ahead of the pack, the Growling Tigers are out to avoid the already-aimed arrows of the De La Salle University Green Archers on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Tip-off is set at 4:00 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.
With Ferrer and Daquioag doing everything, the Tigers haven’t missed the usual numbers of Karim Abdul who is yet to regain his old form. It also doesn’t hurt that more than a few new names have also taken up the cause to bring Espana back to the playoffs.
Such was very evident in their first round meeting against DLSU as UST had much-welcome contributions from the likes of Kyle Suarez and Marvin Lee en route to a 77-61 victory.
Hoping for a different result this time around, Jeron Teng and company will be boosted by the momentum they generated from winning their rivalry game against Ateneo de Manila University in their most recent outing.
