Eagles keep hunt for second-seed in Vigil’s goodbye game

Games on Saturday at the MOA Arena

2:00 PM – UST vs Ateneo

4:00 PM – FEU vs DLSU

Just having conquered the top two teams in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Ateneo de Manila University now owns the longest active winning streak.

And the Blue Eagles want nothing more than to keep it going all the way to a twice-to-beat advantage.

Louie Vigil and the rest of University of Sto. Tomas have other plans, however, and they try to carry it out when they clash with Ateneo on Saturday at the MOA Arena.

The last game in Vigil’s collegiate career tips off 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.

Winners of their last four, the Eagles have put themselves in joint possession of the second-seed. Standing at 8-4 together with Far Eastern University, they are hoping to create some sort of separation between them.

Out to foil their plans are Vigil and the Growling Tigers who have registered a 3-10 record and is hungry to salvage something in what has been a dismal campaign.

Ateneo tamed UST back in the first round, 73-69.
