STREAKS. UE seeks a winning streak while DLSU seeks to avoid a losing streak.
Games on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – DLSU vs UE
4:00 PM – FEU vs UP
Two teams going through roller-coaster rides in the UAAP 78 Men’s Basketball Tournament go head-to-head for a chance to jumpstart a run towards the playoffs.
University of the East aims for back-to-back wins while De La Salle University aims to avoid back-to-back losses on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Red Warriors and the Green Archers try to sort themselves out starting 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 sport.abs-cbn.com.
UE is coming off completing an elimination round sweep of the defending champions. Before that, however, Derrick Pumaren’s boys trudged through a four-game skid that exposed just how inexperienced they are.
Inexperience definitely isn’t the problem for Taft Avenue as Jeron Teng remains to lead a veteran core. However, the King Archer has been the lone consistent operator for DLSU who followed up a comeback win against their archrivals with a close loss to University of Sto. Tomas.
The Archers downed the Warriors in the first round, 71-64.
