FEU guns for first Final Four berth against UE

CLOSE ENOUGH. Mac Belo and FEU need just one more win to be the first team into the Final Four.
Games on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – DLSU vs Adamson
4:00 PM – FEU vs UE
With University of Sto. Tomas’ loss last Wednesday, Far Eartern University now stands alone atop the leaderboard of the 78th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Tamaraws try to solidify their hold on the top-seed while also bagging the first ticket into the Final Four against the desperate University of the East Red Warriors on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Battle of the East begins 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.
Aside from first-place, FEU also continues to be the hottest team in the league with a seven-game winning streak. With RR Pogoy and Mike Tolomia already in form, the league-leaders have only become even scarier with most recent Player of the Week Mac Belo seemingly finally getting his rhythm.
Rhythm and consistency are just some of the things young UE is working on as they suffered a defeat in their most recent outing right after coming off an elimination round sweep of the defending champions. Still, both the system and the talent are there for the Warriors who need to win out in their remaining schedule to stay alive in the tournament.
The Tamaraws claimed the Battle of the East in the first round, 92-81.
