BAD NEIGHBORS. Ateneo needs to get through neighboring rival UP to advance into solo second.
Games on Wednesday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – Ateneo vs UP
4:00 PM – UE vs DLSU
Ateneo de Manila University want nothing more than to gain even more altitude as they head into their first rivalry game with De La Salle University in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
To do so, however, they would have to go through their neighboring rival in the University of the Philippines.
The Blue Eagles are out to move into solo second while the Fighting Maroons are just out to move back into the win column when they take on each other on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.
The tournament’s first Battle of Katipunan commences at 2:00 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.
Anonymous Anton Asistio allowed Ateneo to bounce back the last time around with a career-high 21 points. He and the rest of the nest will have to keep it up against Paul Desiderio and UP looking for a bounce back of their own following their bitter defeat to FEU.
