Game on Saturday at the MOA Arena
4:00 PM – DLSU vs Ateneo
For the second straight season, the last two teams standing are De La Salle University and Ateneo de Manila University.
Now in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament, the archrivals will go at it once again for all the glory.
It’s the Green Archers versus the Blue Eagles in the best-of-three Finals commencing on Saturday at the MOA Arena.
Game 1 between the fierce foes tips off at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream.
Not much separated the two teams in the elimination round as they split their two meetings.
However, it’s DLSU which will be coming into the contest riding an eight-game winning streak.
Still, Ateneo remains confident about its chances especially following a character-defining conquest of Far Eastern University.
In the day’s other game at 11:00 AM, the University of the East Lady Warriors and the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses fight over a Finals date with three-time defending champion National University.
