MISERY LOVES COMPANY.
Games on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – UST vs DLSU
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs NU
Don’t look now, but Ateneo de Manila University stand with sole possession of third-place in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Blue Eagles are out to gain even more altitude by tallying back-to-back wins as well as dealing a fifth consecutive defeat to fellow contender National University on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
On the other hand, the Bulldogs are out to just get back on track beginning 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 sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
Ateneo put an end to their untimely losing slide by routing UE, 75-61. Standing solo third at 5-4, they want nothing more than to keep winning all while the teams behind them keep losing.
One of those teams are NU who last tasted a win 22 days ago. Now at 4-6, they want nothing more than to just return to winning form.
The good news for the Bulldogs is they have already prevailed over the Eagles, 70-60, back in the first round.
