The University of the East got just the ending they were hoping for in the first round of the 79th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Now on the win column, the Red Warriors are hoping for nothing else but a winning streak.
UE tries for their first back-to-back wins of the season when they tackle on Saturday at the MOA Arena a University of Sto. Tomas side that replaced them as the team experiencing the greatest of struggles.
The second round of the tournament 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.
Losing all of their first six games, the Warriors finally got their campaign up and running by shocking Adamson, 64-57.
The squad with the longest losing streak is now the Growling Tigers who have lost all of their last four games to drop to 2-5.
UST rallied by UE for an 88-87 win in their first round meeting.
