Games on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
12:00 PM – NU vs UST
4:00 PM – UP vs UE
The University of the Philippines is fading in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament, having lost four of its last five games.
The Fighting Maroons go all-out to fan the flickering flames of their playoff hopes up against a still confident University of the East at the Filoil Flying V Centre, Sunday.
UP eyes a win that would raise its record of 4-5 while the Red Warriors (2-7) eye to recapture their recent magic at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
In the day’s other game at 2:00 PM, National University hopes that a matchup with winless University of Sto. Tomas is just the pick-me-up it needs.
Meanwhile, in Women’s action, the second-running UST Tigresses (8-1) wage war against the third-running UE Lady Warriors (6-2) at 10:00 AM while archrivals Ateneo Lady Eagles (2-6) and DLSU Lady Archers (2-6) do battle at 8:00 AM.
