FOR THE WIN.
Games on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena
2:00 PM – Adamson vs DLSU
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs UE
The last time they were on the court, Ateneo de Manila University suffered a heartbreaking defeat.
Fortunately for them, they will next take on a University of the East side that has suffered nothing but heartbreaking defeats thus far in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Blue Eagles are determined to get back on track while the Red Warriors are just determined to get on the win column when they collide at the MOA Arena, Saturday.
Blue versus red begins at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23, S+A HD channel 166 as well as streamed LIVE on sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
Ateneo fell to Adamson, 61 - 62, following Dawn Ochea’s “magical shot” last Saturday. Thirdy Ravena and company want nothing more than to get that bad taste off their mouths even if they would have to do it without a still injured Aaron Black.
On the other hand, UE succumbed to University of the Philippines, 71 - 75, the last time around to become the only team in the tournament without a win to show. Bonbon Batiller and the rest of Recto want nothing more than to get rid of that dubious honor.
