BARK-TO-BARK. NU is gunning for back-to-back wins for much-needed momentum heading into the next round.
Games on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena
2:00 PM – NU vs UP
4:00 PM – UST vs FEU
After somewhat of a struggle, National University wants nothing more than to end their first round in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament on a high note.
The only problem is, University of the Philippines has the same idea when they meet with the Bulldogs on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Bulldogs and the Maroons dispute a much-desired win starting 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.
The last time they were on the court, the Bulldogs put a stop to their losing skid and got back on track at the expense of UST, 75 - 68, last Sunday. At 3-2, they are one win away from placing themselves in a tie for the second spot.
The same can’t be said for UP who have dropped back-to-back outings, including a 64 - 79 drubbing at the hands of Katipuan rival Ateneo last Wednesday. Even at 1-5, however, they remain nothing but determined to barge back into the win column.
