HERE WE GO.
Games on Saturday at the MOA Arena
2:00 PM – UST vs Ateneo
4:00 PM – FEU vs DLSU
Both coming off setbacks, only one between defending champion Far Eastern University and title favorite De La Salle University will be back in the win column following their highly-anticipated rematch in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Tamaraws and the Green Archers collide once more on Saturday at the MOA Arena. At stake is the golden opportunity to get the bitter taste of defeat off their mouths and get back to winning.
The bell rings on Round 2 between coaches Nash Racela and Aldin Ayo 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.
DLSU was felled for the first time by archrival Ateneo de Manila University to trip onto a 12-1 standing the last time around.
Things have been worse for FEU which has dropped back-to-back outings to fall to 8-4.
In what’s brewing to be an intense new-age rivalry, however, records and rankings are to be thrown out the window.
That includes the Archers’ 83-78 squeaker of a win against the Tamaraws early in the first round.
