Games on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
12:00 PM – UE vs NU
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs DLSU
On the losing end on of all of its last six games, National University finds itself on the outside looking into the Final Four of the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Still, the Bulldogs have got a shot and they want nothing more than to make the most of it.
To fan their flickering playoff hopes, NU just needs to take care of business against already-eliminated University of the East on Saturday at the Araneta Colisuem.
However, the Red Warriors are only determined to play party poopers starting at 12:00 PM. 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.
NU was upset by the University of the Philippines the last time around, 66-71, to suffer their sixth straight setback coming from a 4-2 standing.
Things weren’t any better for UE who got pounded on by De La Salle University, 66-95, to officially bow out of contention with a 2-9 record.
Things may be looking up for the Bulldogs, however, as they defeated the Red Warriors in the first round by a score of 72-66.
