FEU yet again stands in the way of Ateneo's advance into the Final Four
Game on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum
3:30 PM – Ateneo vs FEU
For four years running now, Ateneo de Manila University and Far Eastern University would have to go through each other if they are to make it to the Finals of the UAAP 81 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
The Blue Eagles and the Tamaraws go at it on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum with the former looking to take care of business and the latter looking to take the series to its limit.
Twice-to-beat Ateneo wages war with ultra-confident FEU starting at 3:00 PM and, as always, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, livestream, and iWant.
The defending champions and their new-age rivals have met in the Final Four for four years running now – with the former winning in 2017 and 2018 and the latter winning in 2016.
The Blue Eagles remain the team-to-beat in the this one even without any Mythical selections. That’s because a balanced effort fronted by Thirdy Ravena, Matt Nieto, and Ange Kouame are still in place.
Still, the Tamaraws are entering the playoffs with a full head of steam, winning their last four games – the last two of which being knockout bouts.
