Games on Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre
9:00 a.m. - Baby Falcons vs Blue Eaglets

1:00 p.m. - Jr. Warriors vs Jr. Maroons
3:00 p.m. - Bullpups vs Baby Tamaraws
Nazareth School of National University needs just one more win to automatically advance into the Finals of the UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Tournament.
To do so, however, the Bullpups will have to ace the tough test sure to be put up by second-running Far Eastern University-Diliman, Wednesday at Filoil Flying V Centre.
The defending champions shoot for a sweep of the elimination round starting at 3:00 p.m. and if they do so, they will trigger stepladder playoffs for the other playoff teams.
Of course, the Baby Tamaraws have other plans and want nothing more than the usual Final Four to ensue. Even more, a win of 16 points or more actually catapults them onto the top-seed.
The other games of the day also have big-time implications.
At 9:00 a.m., Adamson High School is out to clinch the last playoff berth, but standing in its way is streaking Ateneo de Manila High School.
Then at 11:00 a.m., University of Sto. Tomas fights for dear life against De La Salle Zobel.
Meanwhile, the University of the Philippines Integrated School hopes to avoid a winless season by exacting revenge on University of the East at 1:00 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.
