It's another battle between high school powerhouses when Ateneo takes on NU in the Finals
Game on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
4:00 PM – Ateneo vs NU
What would make undefeated Ateneo de Manila High School even scarier as it sets out to try for a season sweep in the UAAP 80 Juniors Basketball Tournament?
A well-rested undefeated Ateneo.
The dominant Blue Eaglets are back in action after an 11-day break, pitted up against equally determined Nazareth School of National University in another championship battle between the high school powerhouses on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
Game 1 in the best-of-three Finals tips off at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Ateneo rampaged through the elimination round and is still going for a clean sweep of the season. With three players in the Mythical Team in SJ Belangel, Dave Ildefonso, and Kai Sotto, they are the odds-on favorites in the series.
Still, the Bullpups have heavy artillery of their own in Rhayyan Amsali, Terrence Fortea, and Migs Oczon. Coming off a takedown of University of Sto. Tomas and Season MVP CJ Cansino, they are nothing but raring and ready to upset the order.
