REMATCH. FEU and UST meet again in the UAAP for the first time since they dueled in the Finals a year ago.
Games on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena
2:00 PM – NU vs UP
4:00 PM – UST vs FEU
Nearly a year ago, Far Eastern University and University of Sto. Tomas were fighting over the top spot all the way to the Finals.
Now in the 79th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament, the finalists have both found themselves just fighting to stay in the playoff picture.
A place inside the top four is at stake when the champion Tamaraws battle the runner-up Growling Tigers at 4:00 PM.
The rematch of the Finals a year ago commences 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.
Behind back-to-back wins, defending champion FEU have kept themselves in contention. At 3-2, they are one win away from placing themselves in a tie for the second spot.
Wanting to make the same thing happen are the Tigers who bowed down to NU the last time around to fall to 2-3.
