Games on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – NU vs UP
4:00 PM – Adamson vs FEU
National University and the University of the Philippines still have a chance to make the playoffs in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
All they have to do is to get a win at the expense of the other on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum.
The Bulldogs and the Fighting Maroons, both at 5-8, will fight for their playoff lives at 2:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Whoever wins will then hope that Adamson University defeats Far Eastern University in the next game at 4:00 PM.
In that case, the winner between NU and UP will then figure in a knockout bout with the Tamaraws for the fourth-seed.
If FEU wins, however, neither NU nor UP will remain in contention.
