The University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the De La Salle University Green Archers at 4:00 P.M. on October 27, 2019 live from the Ynares Center, City of Antipolo.
The Fighting Maroons wanted to strengthen their position at the number two spot in the standings while the Green Archers will continue to resurrect their Final Four chances when the UAAP Season 82 resumes this afternoon in Ynares Center.
Team UP is coming from a win versus the National University Bulldogs last October 23 at the Big Dome.
That victory of the Fighting Maroons officially gave them the ticket to the playoffs while keeping their position at the number two which will give them a twice-to-beat incentive in the semis.
Kobe Paras was the leading scorer for UP with his 19 markers while Bright Akhuetie added 16 points.
For team DLSU on the other hand, they edged the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers last October 23 also in the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
That win kept them in playoffs contention yet they need to continue to push as their squad still outside the fence of the Final Four.
Jamie Malonzo led DLSU in offense in that said match where he dropped 23 points while Aljun Melecio added 18 markers.
