It's going to be a wild Wednesday as University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas meet in a do-or-die match to see who advances into the UAAP Season 82 Men's Basketball Finals to face defending champions Ateneo de Manila University.
After falling in the first game of their matchup, the Fighting Maroons will look to bounce back and set up a showdown with their Katipunan neighbors in the season finale.
Riding the momentum of their big win last Sunday, the Growling Tigers have their sights set on a return to the Finals for the first time since UAAP Season 78.
Can UP set up a rematch of the last season's Finals, or can UST make it to the big dance?
