Games on Sunday at the San Juan Arena
12:00 PM – FEU vs Adamson
4:00 PM – UP vs UST
Without a doubt, this University of the Philippines in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament is not the same squad that has only averaged one win in the last nine years.
The Fighting Maroons want nothing more than to keep proving that by keeping themselves in the running for the playoffs as they battle University of Sto. Tomas on Sunday at the San Juan Arena.
State U fights for its possession of fifth-place 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.
UP claimed a fourth win for the first time in a decade after trumping National University, 71-66.
The Growling Tigers had it way worse in their most recent game as they were plastered by De La Salle University, 99-56.
Standing at 3-8, UST can catch up with the 4-8 Maroons if they get a repeat of their first round meeting where they won, 83-77.
