Without a doubt, these two teams are desperate to make a win and snap their respective losing skids. The Tamaraws currently have four straight losses while the Red Warriors got its own with six.
First week of October probably was the best week for FEU where they made three-game winning streak. The best accomplishment they made is beating two of the current heavyweights of the UAAP Season 81, the Blue Eagles and the Soaring Falcons.
They were the first team to beat Adamson which probably forced coach Franz Pumaren and his entire coaching staff back in the drawing boards after their earlier winning streak came to an end.
Now it’s time for FEU head coach Olsen Racela especially that they’re now behind the Top Four teams of the tournament.
For the University of the East on the other hand, last time they tasted a victory was last September 30. Coincidentally, that team they have beaten was Far Eastern University.
The Red Warriors needs to recall what they done right in that game where it ended in a blowout, 90-65.
Alvin Pasaol had a brilliant performance in that head-to-head duel as he registered 25 points and nine rebounds.
