Game on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs FEU
Ateneo de Manila University may have missed out on an automatic advance, but all it needs is just one win to make the Finals of the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The top-seeded Blue Eagles go all-out to do just that when they take on fourth-seed Far Eastern University on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Ateneo seeks to bounce back all the way to the championship round starting at 4:00 PM while the Tamaraws seek to bring the series to a knockout bout. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/uaap.
The Blue Eagles lost for the first time in the season to end the elimination round. Thirdy Ravena and company will have to waste no time in regrouping if they are to set a Finals rematch with defending champion De La Salle University.
On the other hand, FEU got its biggest win of the season to end the eliminations. Ron Dennison and the rest will have to waste that kind of outing shines through once again.
Meanwhile, third-seed University of Sto. Tomas and fourth-seed FEU will do battle at 1:00 PM in the first rung of the stepladder playoffs in the Women’s division. The winner will move on to face second-seed and twice-to-beat University of the East.
