Will NU end or will Ateneo extend the series?
Game on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
3:00 PM – Ateneo vs NU
Nazareth School of National University needs just one more win to claim its fourth championship in the last eight years.
That’s easier said than done, however, as Ateneo de Manila High School isn’t just giving away its title in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament.
The Bullpups go for the Blue Eaglets’ jugular in Game 2 of the Finals on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.
The defending champions are in a must-win situation in the heavyweight bout starting at 3:00 PM. Of course, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
Four days ago, NU re-asserted its mastery over Ateneo and the former is now 3-0 versus the latter in the season series.
All the momentum and all the confidence are with team captain Gerry Abadiano, scoring dynamo Terrence Fortea, and twin towers Kevin Quiambao and Carl Tamayo as they try to finish off a dominant championship run for NU.
Season MVP Kai Sotto and playmaker Forthsky Padrigao have other plans, however, and Ateneo is certain to go all-out to extend its reign just a little longer.
