NU out to put finishing touches on perfect season

SWEEP-SMELLING. Justine Baltazar and NU have done nothing but bully DLSZ through all their three matchups in the season.
Game on Friday at the San Juan Arena
2:00 PM – NU vs DLSZ
Yet another win.
Yet another win at the San Juan Arena, Friday is all Nazareth School of National University needs to stake claim to their second perfect season in the past three years.
The Bullpups hope to hoist the trophy in the UAAP 78 Juniors Basketball Tournament at the expense of a De La Salle Zobel side they have already conquered three times prior.
Still, the Junior Archers are only expected to leave their all on the court right from tip-off at 2:00 PM. 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 has routed their Finals foes by an average margin of 22.7 points. The Kapampangan connection of Justine Baltazar and John Lloyd Clemente, along with the rest of them, have done nothing but impose their brand of bully basketball on their perimeter-oriented opponents.
Nonetheless, DLSZ remains hopeful to make the impossible happen especially with MVP Aljun Melecio in the driver’s seat. Melecio will need more from wingmen Brent Paraiso and Marco Sario so that the boys from Alabang will be able to ruin the league-leaders’ erstwhile perfect season.
Before Game Two, MVP Melecio and Mythical selections Baltazar, Clemente, Javi Gomez de Liano, and Juan Gomez de Liano will be receiving their awards.
