IT'S YOU AND ME. Waiting for an FEU-Diliman side coming off a grueling series is well-rested defending champion NU.
The last time they met in the championship round, Far Eastern University-Diliman bested Nazareth School of National University.
Since then, the Bullpups have won a total of three titles in five years.
Now in the UAAP 79 Juniors Basketball Tournament, defending champion NU is seeking to cement its dynasty at the expense of the Baby Tamaraws who have just made their way back into the Finals after almost five years.
NU re-engages FEU-Diliman for all the glory with Game 1 of the best-of-three Finals set for Tuesday at the San Juan Arena.
The Juniors Finals commences at 2:00 PM and of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE.
Only two teams have beaten the Bullpups through the tournament. And with John Lloyd Clemente just having turned in his best outing, they are confident they are peaking at the right time.
However, one of those two teams just so happens to be FEU-Diliman. They may be coming off a grueling series against Ateneo High School, but Jack Gloria and company remain nothing but determined to continue exceeding expectations.
