The Far Eastern University Tamaraws is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Ateneo de Manila University Blue Eagles at 4:00 P.M. on October 20, 2018 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Tamaraws are looking to make a quick bounce back game after their stellar back-to-back victories against the tournament’s heavyweights while the Blue Eagles are looking for a consistent basketball and restore their championship form.
After slaying the then league-leader Adamson University Soaring Falcons and a follow-up victory against the Blue Eagles in the first round, the Far Eastern University bowed down against the University Santo Tomas Growling Tigers.
In their first encounter in the UAAP Season 81, the team of coach Olsen Racela went victorious.
Hubert Cani was the leading scorer for the Tamaraws with his 12 points, five rebounds and six assists. Actually it was a balance scoring for the boys of coach Racela.
The Blue Eagles on the other hand are fresh from a victory against the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons.
Thirdy Ravena was the main-man for coach Tab Baldwin in that game with his 20 points, ten rebounds and two block shots.
