BATTLE OF THE BIRDS. Thirdy Ravena will have one less backup as Ateneo and Adamson collide.
Games on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – UST vs UP
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs Adamson
Gunning for what would be their first winning streak in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Ateneo de Manila University will have one less weapon with Aaron Black still sidelined by his left foot injury.
As such, the Blue Eagles will have to lean even more on team effort as they take on much-improved Adamson University on Saturday at the Araneta Colisuem.
Ateneo currently occupy third place with two wins and a loss following a 76-71 triumph over defending champion Far Eastern University last Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Adamson suffered its first setback of the season when it was grounded by FEU, 75 - 65, last Sunday.
The Battle of the Birds begin at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23 and ABS-CBN S+A HD channel 166 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
