Game on Wednesday at MOA Arena

4:00 p.m. - Ateneo vs UST

With one more win, Ateneo de Manila University will wrap up the first-ever 16-0 campaign in the history of the UAAP Men's Basketball Tournament.

The Blue Eagles set out for perfection, Wednesday at MOA Arena, but first have to take care of business once more up against dangerous University of Sto. Tomas.

The two-time defending champions are out to, well, defend their championship and at the same time, score a season sweep starting at 4:00 p.m. As always, 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.

Of course, the Growling Tigers have other plans - to play spoiler for a feat that has never been done before.

All previous season sweeps in the league wound up with 14-0 records and, as such, if Tab Baldwin-coached Ateneo does it, it will wrap up the greatest-ever championship run.

To do so, however, the Blue Eagles hope to have the same sort of effort opposite a UST side that is sure to be prepared to the maximum by Aldin Ayo.

Meanwhile, the Women's Finals also gets underway at 12 noon as the National University Lady Bulldogs go for yet another season sweep as their best-of-three championship round commences opposite the UST Tigresses.
