Games on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – FEU vs UP
4:00 PM – UE vs Adamson
In their last six assignments in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Far Eastern University have been trampling their way to victory.
The even more dangerous Tamaraws seek to charge through their seventh win in a row at the expense of desperate University of the Philippines on Saturday at Araneta Coliseum.
The Maroons are out to fight for their playoff chances 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.
The defending champions have won all of their last six games to rise to 7-2, the latest being a 59-48 triumph over UST. That was nine days ago and they will come into their next matchup fully-rested.
Nothing will come easy, however, especially against State U who are nothing but determined to barge back into the win column following their close loss to DLSU, 72-78, that sent them to 3-7.
In the first round, FEU survived UP, 51-49.
