The University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Far Eastern University Tamaraws at 4:00 P.M. on October 24, 2018 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The Fighting Maroons are looking for a back-to-back victories and catch up with the current teams which already reached the Top Four while the Tamaraws are seeking to end their two-game slump.
Few weeks ago the Far Eastern University were rolling and many sees them as the top contender this UAAP Season 81 after beating two of the heavyweights of the tournament.
First, they were able to solve the puzzle and able to determine the weakness of the then perfect record of the Adamson Soaring Falcons. Then they followed it up in their next game against the Ateneo Blue Eagles.
However, in their next two outings it seems the boys of coach Olsen Racela went out of gas as they absorbed back-to-back defeats. The worst was against the Blue Eagles as Angelo Kouame went unstoppable and they got beaten, 62-82.
For the University of the Philippines, they are fresh from a victory against the hapless University of the East Red Warriors.
Bright Akhuetie paced the Fighting Maroons with his 28 points and 13 rebounds.
