Game on Saturday at the MOA Arena
3:30 PM – Adamson vs UP
The University of the Philippines has finally made it past the elimination round for the first time since 1997.
Only, opposite them in the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament Final Four is second-seed and twice-to-beat Adamson University.
The Soaring Falcons are determined to yet again break the hearts of the Fighting Maroons when they meet in the middle of the MOA Arena floor on Saturday.
This year’s Final Four commences with a highly anticipated showdown between Adamson and UP at 3:30 PM. Of course, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, livestream, and iWant.
The Soaring Falcons won both meetings of the two teams in the elimination round – and Sean Manganti had a big hand in that.
Still, the Fighting Maroons are nothing but confident they could pull off an upset with Season MVP Bright Akhuetie, Mythical selection Juan Gomez de Liano, and team captain Paul Desiderio leading the charge.
