Matt Nieto and Ateneo want nothing more than to avoid a 0-2 hole to begin the UAAP Season 81
Games on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum
2:00 PM – UST vs FEU
4:00 PM – UP vs Ateneo
Ateneo de Manila University was at the wrong end of an upset to commence its title defense in the 81st Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Blue Eagles are nothing but hungry to get back on track on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum, but will need to do so against a University of the Philippines side which had just registered the biggest winning margin in opening weekend.
Longtime power Ateneo (0-1) figures in a showdown opposite upstart UP (1-0) in the season’s first Battle of Katipunan tipping off at 4:00 PM. Of course, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
In the day’s other game, Far Eastern University (1-0) is out to keep charging versus new-look University of Sto. Tomas (0-1) at 2:00 PM.
And in the Women’s games, there will be matchups between the Ateneo Lady Eagles (1-0) and the UE Lady Warriors (0-1) at 8:00 AM and between the FEU Lady Tamaraws (1-0) and the UP Lady Maroons (0-1) at 10:00 AM.
