The fourth and final playoff berth in UAAP 81 will come down to either La Salle or FEU
Game on Wednesday at the Araneta Coliseum
3:30 PM – La Salle vs FEU
Only one between De La Salle University and Far Eastern University will be making the Final Four once more in the 81st Season of the UAAP Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Green Archers and the Tamaraws dispute the right to stay alive and stay in contention in the middle of the Araneta Coliseum floor on Wednesday.
The playoff picture will be completed either by La Salle or FEU after their matchup tipping off at 3:30 PM. All of the actions will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
The Green Archers, the Tamaraws, and the University of the Philippines all stood at 8-6 at the end of elimination round. By virtue of the triple tie, the team with the highest quotient automatically got the third-seed – and the team with the highest quotient turned out to be UP.
That has forced La Salle and FEU to have to go through a knockout bout for the fourth and final playoff berth.
The two teams split their meetings in the eliminations.
Whoever the winner is between them in this one will then move on to face top-seed and twice-to-beat Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday.
