Nazareth School of National University is marching towards perfection in the elimination round of the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament.

And the next milestone for the Bullpups in that march is a twice-to-beat advantage - that is if and only if they take care of business against also-ran University of the East, Sunday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The defending champions have their sights set on an 11th win in as many games at the expense of the 3-7 Jr. Warriors at 9:00 a.m.

Meanwhile, Far Eastern University-Diliman is also looking to have one foot in the door of a playoff incentive when it takes on the University of the Philippines Integrated School at 1:00 p.m.

The three teams jostling for the other two playoff berths also figure in crucial contests with third-running University of Sto. Tomas waging war with fourth-place Ateneo de Manila High School at 11:00 a.m. and fifth-ranked Adamson High School eyeing a mighty rebound against De La Salle Zobel at 3:00 p.m.

The afternoon 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 as well as livestream while the morning matches will be on streaming.
