Games Today:

1 pm NU (4-7) vs. ADMU (12-0)

3pm UST (6-5) vs. AdU (9-3)

Venue: Araneta Coliseum

Telecast: Studio 23

National University Bulldogs vs. Ateneo De Manila Blue Eagles

Round 1 Result: Ateneo 86 – 62 NU

Top Performers:

Nico Salva (12 pts 10 rebs); Greg Slaugther (15 points 7 rebounds); Ray Parks (20 Pts 6 rebs)

Ateneo is 2 games away from a sweep. NU will get a chance to spoil the perfect mark and also improve its dimming Final 4 chances. Ray Parks is running away with the scoring title and he needs to get his teammates involved in beating a very deep ADMU line-up. The Parks-Ravena matchup did not materialize in the first round but with more at stake now, expect to see these 2 rookies to put on a good show. Ateneo’s Greg Slaughter and NU’s Emmanuel Mbe will also slug it out at the post. It will be a closer game than the last time and expect NU to put on a good fight. Ateneo by 7. 😉

University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers vs. Adamson University Soaring Falcons

Round 1 Result: AdU 81 – 71 UST

Top Performers: Janus Lozada (21 pts 4 rebs); Eric James Camson (19 pts 7 rebs); Jeric Allen Teng (15 pts)

UST and Adamson are trying to cement their places in this year’s Final 4. A UST win will virtually eliminate NU and DLSU. If Adamson wins, they will most likely be the No.2 seed in this year’s Final 4 and a win will also give them momentum in its game against Ateneo. This game has a bigger implication in the standings and it will be expect that the teams will go all-out to try grab a crucial victory: Adamson by 4. 🙂
