CLASH OF CHAMPIONS. Defending champion FEU wants to position themselves at solo second, but also vying for the same spot is 2014 champion NU.
Games on Wednesday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – Adamson vs UST
4:00 PM – FEU vs NU
Thus far through one round of the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament, 2015 champion Far Eastern University and 2014 champion National University remain the widely-regarded closest competitors for current title favorite DLSU.
Before they get another chance to prove themselves against the league-leaders, however, the Tamaraws and the Bulldogs first need to settle the score between themselves on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.
The last two champions fight over solo second starting at 4:00 PM and 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 two teams stand at 4-2 and are entangled for the place right behind the still perfect Green Archers.
The defending champions are fresh off defeating UE, UP, and UST.
Also coming off victories versus the Growling Tigers and the Maroons are the titlists from two years ago.
