Games on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – DLSU vs UP
4:00 PM – NU vs UST
Jeron Teng will finally be back in action for De La Salle University after missing their last two assignments in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
It’s not as if the 8-0 Green Archers even needed a boost, but their team captain’s return might have just come at the right time as standing in their way next on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum is the University of the Philippines who are on their own morale-high following back-to-back wins.
The Fighting Maroons are out to ruin Teng’s welcome back party starting 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.
State U upset Ateneo and Adamson in back-to-back outings to, all of a sudden, climb out of the cellar of the standings now at 3-6.
Nothing will get easier for them, however, as they take on their toughest test yet in the form of league-leading DLSU who have found no match in all of their eight assignments in the tournament.
