It’s day one for the UAAP Season 81 Final Four matches. The Fighting Maroons are looking to push the series to a knockout round, yet, the Soaring Falcons obviously wanted the other way around.
For the first time in many decades, both the University of the Philippines and the Adamson University will be seen in the Finals round, however, there’ll be only one ticket for that championship round.
Probably the most historic one was the last time UP tasted a Finals appearance way back in 1986. That squad was bannered by Eric Altamirano, Ronnie Magsanoc and Benjie Paras. They were led by their chief bench tactician coach Joe Lipa.
Of course, this season’s version of UP Fighting Maroons wanted a repeat and can take its inspiration from their legends.
For the Adamson University on the other hand, the Final Four stage is not new to coach Franz Pumaren. With several championship rings he already won in UAAP expect that they’ll give their opponent tough time.
In the eliminations round, Adamson swept the University of the Philippines 2-0 with a winning margin of 4.5 points.
