How far apart the defending champions and the runners-up have become now in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

While Far Eastern University are on a five-game winning streak that has put them breathing down the necks of the league-leaders, University of Sto. Tomas have been on a five-game downward spiral that has put them in the bottom of the standings.

The Tamaraws hope to continue charging onward while the Tigers hope to just growl once again on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.

Another rematch of the Finals from a year ago tips-off 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

The defending champions kept rolling onto a 6-2 standing after stymying NU in back-to-back games 78-75 and 57-56.

The exact opposite has been true for the runners-up who find themselves in a 2-6 hole with five straight setbacks.

The Tamaraws gored the Tigers, 79-72, in the first round.
