Game on Sunday at Araneta Coliseum

4:00 p.m. - UP vs UST

The University of the Philippines is one win away from entering the Finals for the second straight season.

Only, blocking their entry is a team they are yet to figure out in the UAAP 82 Men's Basketball Tournament.

The Fighting Maroons try once more to ace the tough test certain to be coming from University of Sto. Tomas, Sunday at Araneta Coliseum.

State U owns a twice-to-beat advantage, but the Growling Tigers own the mental edge after having swept the two teams' meetings in the elimination round.

Starting at 4:00 p.m., it will either be an entry to the Finals for UP and an end to UST's season or an extension of the semifinals showdown. Of course, all of the action will be on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and livestream.

The Women's stepladder playoffs also starts at long last at 12:00 p.m. with Adamson University and Far Eastern University figuring in a knockout bout for the right to face second-seed and twice-to-beat UST.
