BIG-TIME BOUT. Defending champion FEU goes for back-to-back wins at the expense of Ateneo.
Games on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena
2:00 PM – FEU vs Ateneo
4:00 PM – DLSU vs UST
Stumbling out of the gates to start their title defense in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament, it didn’t take long for Far Eastern University to get back on their feet.
Now, they are nothing but determined to keep moving forward.
To do so, the Tamaraws need to get through an Ateneo de Manila University side seeking a bounce back of their own on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.
A rematch of last season’s semifinals tips off 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.
Opening the tournament with a 78 - 83 loss to title favorite De La Salle University, defending champion FEU rebounded mightily and sent Adamson University crashing back to earth, 75 - 85, the last time around.
On the other hand, the Blue Eagles scored a tournament-opening 73 - 69 win against University of Sto. Tomas only to falter at the hands of National University, 60 - 70, in their most recent outing.
