The Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the University of the East Red Warriors at 2:00 P.M. on October 20, 2019 live from the Ynares Center, City of Antipolo.
The Blue Eagles will try to strike their 12th victory this season and keep their record perfect while the Red Warriors wanted to salvage their UAAP Season 82 campaign as they’re eyeing for a sweep on all their remaining games when the tournament resumes this afternoon in Antipolo.
Team Ateneo got their 11th win versus the Far Eastern University Tamaraws last October 16 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena.
The Blue Eagles have dodged a bullet in their last outing. For the first time this season, they were down by a double-digit yet the squad of coach Tab Baldwin was able to respond and still able to take home the win.
Ange Kouame and Thirdy Ravena led Ateneo in their team’s balanced scoring with 10 points apiece.
For team UE on the other hand, they’re coming from a defeat against the De La Salle University Green Archers last October 16 also at the MOA Arena.
The Red Warriors failed to make repeat against Lasal where they won in their initial face-off this season. Green Archers’ Justine Baltazar went berserk in that said match where he delivered 23 points and 12 boards for his school.
Rey Suerte led UE with his 17 points while teammate Philip Manalang added 14 markers.
