The De La Salle University Green Archers is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons at 4:00 P.M. on November 14, 2018 live from the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Green Archers are looking to make a quick bounce back while the Fighting Maroons wanted a three-game winning streak when UAAP Season 81 resumes in Pasay.
It seems like the person who is in-charge to prepare this season’s game schedule has a crystal ball. Not only that this is the final game of DLSU and UP in the elimination round but both teams are tie in the last slot going to the semis.
These two squads are sharing a 7-6 win-loss card and the winner of today’s ball-game will earn a ticket going to the Top Four matches.
In their first round encounter last September 30 it was UP went victorious, 67-61.
That game went toe-to-toe in the last few minutes of the game. At 2:24 mark the score was 60-61 after Green Archers center Justine Baltazar converted his layup, still it was in favor of UP.
Then the Fighting Maroons fought back as they responded with a 5-0 run which kept them away from striking distance and eventually won the game.
Bright Akhuetie was the leading scorer for UP in that game with his 19 points along with his 12 rebounds. For the DLSU side, it was Justine Baltazar who top scored with his 13 points and seven rebounds.
