UAAP: Ateneo, La Salle clash this Sunday

Two big games are going to happen in the UAAP this Sunday, August 28th. University of Santo Tomas will go against the University of the East in its bid to enter into the final four of the men's basketball competition. After which, league leader Ateneo will tackle La Salle.

In anticipation of a large crowd arriving at the Araneta Coliseum to watch the Ateneo-La Salle 3 p.m. match, the game between the Growling Tigers and Red Warriors will be played earlier at 11 a.m. and will telecast on Studio 23 at 1 o'clock in the afternoon.

It will be an important game for La Salle. The Green Archers will have to snatch a win from the Blue Eagles to place at number four in the ranking, but of course it will depend on the outcome of the first game.

Ateneo, who holds a 10 and 0 win-loss card, however, will surely not allow La Salle, who has a 4 and 6 win-loss record at present, to cause their first defeat of the season.

The Green Archers, on the other hand, will definitely aim for a victory after a sluggish performance during their first meeting. They lost to Ateneo, 72-81, last July 16.

With Ateneo and La Salle renewing their rivalry, fans will certainly be treated with another exciting basketball action this Sunday.

In the meantime, here are the game results for Saturday, August 27: Adamson defeats UP, 64-51; FEU beats NU, 84-82, in double overtime.
