The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the National University Bulldogs at 2:00 P.M. on October 26, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City.
The Blue Eagles wanted to stay perfect this year’s edition of the tournament and extend their winning streak to thirteen while the Bulldogs will try to end their three-game skid when the UAAP Season 82 resumes this afternoon at the Big Dome.
Team Ateneo is coming from a huge win against the University of the East Red Warriors last October 20 in Ynares.
That game formally closed the doors for UE this season for playoff contention.
Isaac Go was the scoring leader for coach Tab Baldwin’s squad while Ange Kouame and Thirdy Ravena added 11 markers.
For team NU, on the other hand, they got defeated by the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons last October 23 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Bulldogs almost gave UP a spoiler in that game. Good thing for the Fighting Maroons when the mid-range jumper of John Lloyd Clemente got missed or else the game could extend in another five minutes and the momentum may have shifted.
Dave Ildefonso led his team in offense during that match where he tallied with 24 points while JV Gallego had 20 markers.
