Eagles eyeing to sweep Maroons in Battle of Katipunan

Games on Saturday at the MOA Arena

2:00 PM – UST vs UE

4:00 PM – Ateneo vs UP

Ateneo de Manila University was bludgeoned by their archrivals the last time they saw action in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

But a new round brings a new beginning and the Blue Eagles are only determined to come back with a vengeance by venting out their ire on neighboring rival University of the Philippines on Saturday at the MOA Arena.

Round 2 of this year’s Battle of Katipunan begins 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.

Ateneo got walloped by archrival DLSU by 16 points the last time around to finish the first round at 4-3.

The 1-6 Maroons haven’t been doing any better and have been defeated in all of their last four outings.

In the first round, Ateneo rolled to a 79-64 triumph over UP.
