Games on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – DLSU vs UE
4:00 PM – UP vs NU
Both undergoing untimely slumps, University of the Philippines and National University want nothing more than to re-ignite the flames of their playoff chances in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The good news is, they get the golden opportunity to do so at the expense of one another
On Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum, the Fighting Maroons and the Bulldogs fight over the right to breathe behind the necks of fourth-running Adamson.
Losing streaks collide at 4:00 PM and one will be put to an end. 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.
Losing for the fifth time in a row the last time around, NU find themselves reeling with a 4-7 record.
Things haven’t gone better for the Maroons who have suffered back-to-back losses to slip to a 3-8 standing.
Still, the two teams have a chance of chasing down 5-5 and fourth-running Adamson.
The Bulldogs got the better of UP in the first round, 80-69.
