Games on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
1:00 PM – NU (twice-to-beat) vs Adamson
3:00 PM – Ateneo (twice-to-beat) vs FEU-Diliman
Nazareth School of National University and Ateneo de Manila High School are on a collision course to clash once more for all the glory now in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament.
Not if Adamson High School and Far Eastern University-Diliman have their way, however, as they challenge the twice-to-beat Bullpups and Blue Eaglets, respectively, as the Final Four commences on Friday at the FIloil Flying V Centre.
First, top-seed NU looks to get the better of the Baby Falcons, the only team to have downed them, at 1:00 PM.
Team captain Gerry Abadiano, scoring dynamo Terrence Fortea, and versatile big Carl Tamayo will front the effort for the Bullpups who are hoping to return to the Finals and finish what they fell short of doing a year ago.
Hoping to meet them there is defending champion Ateneo which will go all-out to take care of business opposite the Baby Tamaraws at 3:00 PM. The two teams split their meetings in the elimination round.
The Blue Eaglets will follow the lead of runaway MVP Kai Sotto as they continue their quest for back-to-back titles.
For the first time ever, the Juniors Final Four will be LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on S+A and S+A HD as well as livestream.
