EYE IN THE SKY.
Games on Wednesday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – Adamson vs UP
4:00 PM – UST vs FEU
After downing their neighboring rivals for the first time in seven years, the University of the Philippines are on a morale-high in the 79th Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Now, the Fighting Maroons want nothing more than to use their momentum all the way to their first winning streak of the season.
The only problem is, standing in their way are Adamson University who want nothing more than to return to their winning ways on Wednesday at the MOA Arena.
UP’s want of winning streak and the Soaring Falcons’ want of a bounce back win collide starting at 2:00 PM. 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.
The Maroons came out victors in The Battle of Katipunan against Ateneo, 56-52, to put an end to their five-game losing skid and stand at 2-6.
On the other hand, Adamson are coming off a close loss to league-leader DLSU, 79-86, but remain in a logjam for third-place with a 4-4 record.
Still, the Falcons have confidence they can get off the ground once more as they have already defeated UP back in the first round by a score of 104-83.
