9 a.m. – NU vs Adamson
11 a.m. – FEU vs UPIS
1 p.m. – UE vs Ateneo
3 p.m. – UST vs DLSZ
Ateneo is expected to take another big step towards an impressive feat as the Blue Eaglets play host to the University of the East Junior Warriors today in the UAAP Season 80 juniors basketball elimination round.
Tip off is at 1 p.m., with the Blue Eaglets favored to stretch their flawless start to 13 matches and inch closer towards a dominant sweep of the double-round of eliminations which will earn them an outright seat in the best-of-three finals.
Up against a UE side which only has a single win to show, Ateneo remains in its merciless form its showed during a numbing 97-47 victory in their first-round meeting last Nov. 30.
Blue Eaglets coach Joe Silva, however, is craving for more.
“I want to see more consistency and more killer’s instinct from each and everyone of our players,” he told Tempo-Bulletin in an SMS message yesterday.
