(Olivarez College gym)
12 noon – CDSL vs Olivarez
2 p.m. – BSU vs TIP
Whether Bulacan State Univer-sity is for real will be known today when it battles Technological Institute of the Philippines in the Universities and Colleges Basketball League at the Olivarez College gym.
The BSU Gold Gears and the TIP Engineers clash at 2 p.m. with both teams going for their second straight win in the tournament organized by the Universities and Colleges Athletic League and presented by Euro-Med and Lamoiyan Corp.
The Gold Gears are hard-pressed to follow their stunning 96-91 win over the Olivarez College in the opener last Saturday owing to TIP’s vast experience.
The TIP Engineers likewise got off to a rousing start with a 69-54 win over the University of Batangas Brahmans also last Saturday – thanks to Harley Diego and John Enriques who finished with 12 points apiece.
Meantime, the Olivarez Sea Lions try to bounce back from that shock defeat when it takes on Colegio De San Lorenzo at 12 noon.
Out to lead the Sea Lions are Pruvil Bermudez and Mavrick Saguiguit who tallied 26 and 15 points, respectively, the last time.
TIP Coach Sebastian De Vera is hoping to get another valuable performance from Diego, Enriquez and Paul Rosopa as they go for the solo lead.
Multi-titled Centro Escolar University also made its presence felt by blasting CDSL, 89-71.
