Nazareth School of National University has grand plans of remaining as the pacesetter in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament.

To do so, the Bullpups will have to take care of business against an upset-conscious University of the Philippines Integrated School on Saturday at the Blue Eagle Gym in Quezon City.

NU (3-0) is now the league’s lone undefeated team and all of Carl Tamayo, Terrence Fortea, and Gerry Abadiano will still go all out to pass the test to be put up by the Junior Maroons (0-3) at 9:00 AM.

Meanwhile, after suffering its first setback, Ateneo de Manila High School will also go all out to get back on track at the expense of archrival De La Salle Zobel at 3:00 PM.

Kai Sotto is expected to have easy pickings for the Blue Eaglets (2-1) who are set to face a Raven Cortez-less frontline of the Junior Archers (2-1).

There will also be matchups between two playoff hopefuls in Far Eastern University-Diliman (2-1) and Adamson High School (2-1) at 11:00 AM as well as between University of Sto. Tomas (1-2) and University of the East (0-3) at 1:00 PM.
