TOUGH TEST. Alfred Aroga will test the mettle of "All-Filipino" UE.
Games on Wednesday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – NU vs UE
4:00 PM – DLSU vs FEU
Before the beginning of the 79th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament, a lineup composed of locals was always being touted by the University of the East.
The “All-Filipino” Red Warriors will not have to wait long to see where they stack up with the rest of the league as to start their season on Wednesday at the MOA Arena, they meet up with National University and their Mythical selection a year ago in Cameroonian Alfred Aroga.
Aroga looks to see if UE has what it takes to handle him at 2:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD channel 166 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
The Cameroonian won’t be alone, however, as he will be flanked by J-Jay Alejandro as well as highly-hyped transfers Matt Aquino and Matt Salem.
They will have to mesh quick as going right at them is a UE side that stayed intact, for the most part, from last season. Still heading their charge are Bonbon Batillier and Clark Derige.
