TOP TO BOTTOM.
Games on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – DLSU vs UE
4:00 PM – UP vs NU
Already with 11 wins to their name, De La Salle University remain determined to march forward to an outright berth in the Finals of the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Green Archers eye to move just two steps away from an elimination round sweep when they meet desperate University of the East at the middle of the Araneta Coliseum floor on Wednesday.
On the other hand, the Red Warriors are hoping for a miracle that would keep them alive from contention. Something’s gotta give 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.
DLSU destroyed UST by 43 points in their most recent outing to steamroll their way to their 11th win in as many games. Three more wins and they finish the eliminations with a spotless slate and ensure their entry into the Finals as well as a need for stepladder playoffs.
Wanting nothing more than a Final Four and just a chance – however slim it may be – to play there are UE who dropped a 71-79 decision for Adamson the last time around.
The league-leaders made quick work of the cellar-dwellers in the first round, 84-78.
