STEAMROLLING IN THE DEEP.
Games on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – UST vs DLSU
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs NU
De La Salle University need just one more win to secure a twice-to-beat for the Final Four in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament – if there’s even going to be a Final Four.
Having steamrolled to 10 wins in as many games, the Green Archers look to ensure a top two finish in the elimination round when they take on University of Sto. Tomas on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The league-leaders try for an eliminations sweep of last year’s runners-up 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.
DLSU walloped NU, 113-88, the last time around to officially make their way back into the playoffs.
The playoffs remain a possibility for the 3-7 Growling Tigers who arrested a disastrous five-game losing skid by also defeating the Bulldogs, 73-69, in their most recent outing.
The Archers blew out UST by 38 points, 100-62, in their first round matchup. It was the latter’s worst loss in a decade.
