Rampaging Bullpups raring to take one step closer to title

UNLEASHED. NU returns to the court with nothing but another win on their minds.
Game on Friday at the San Juan Arena
2:00 PM – NU vs DLSZ
Nazareth School of National University has not been on the court in the UAAP 78 Juniors Basketball Tournament for nearly two weeks.
Still, the Bullpups are fully confident that they are already in fifth gear as they set out to move one win away from their second championship in the last three years.
Standing in their way at the San Juan Arena, Friday is a De La Salle Zobel fully confident in their own right following yet another win – their third in the season – against archrival and now-dethroned champion Ateneo de Manila High School.
Game One of the Finals begins 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.
NU is yet to be defeated in the season and have already defeated their Finals foe twice in the elimination round. They want nothing more than to keep their win run going behind Mythical selections Justine Baltazar and John Lloyd Clemente who remain the league’s most consistent and most effective end-to-end duo.
Doing their best to make something out of nothing, the Junior Archers will be led into battle by MVP Aljun Melecio. While the scoring dynamo had been kept in check by the Bullpups in their last couple of meetings, the rest of the boys from Alabang remain determined to prove that it will be through team effort that they make history.
