Games on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – UP vs UE
4:00 PM – NU vs Adamson
With three shots at the fourth and final playoff berth in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament, all Adamson University needed was one try.
And with their win last Wednesday, the Soaring Falcons were the last ones through the door before closing it right in the faces of National University and University of the Philippines.
While they have already been eliminated from contention, the Bulldogs have nothing but revenge on their minds when they meet Adamson in the middle of the Araneta Coliseum floor on Sunday.
NU goes out to ruin the Falcons’ chances at a twice-to-beat advantage 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.
Standing at 7-5, Adamson is just right behind 8-4 and second-place sharers Ateneo de Manila University and Far Eastern University. As such, coach Franz Pumaren said they will still go all out even though they have already achieved their immediate goal of returning to the Final Four.
Missing out on the playoffs for only the second time in the Eric Altamirano era, however, the Bulldogs are looking to take out their frustrations on whoever comes across their path.
The Falcons got the better of NU in the first round, 64-51.
