The University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the National University Bulldogs at 10:30 A.M. on October 23, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City.
The Fighting Maroons will try to make back-to-back wins while the Bulldogs wanted to end their two-game losing slump when the UAAP Season 82 resumes this morning at the Big Dome.
Team UP is coming from a win against the Adamson University Soaring Falcons last October 20 at the Ynares Center in Antipolo.
The Fighting Maroons played just like what their moniker says, Fight! They were down before the game entered its twilight zone then UP made a rally to make sure that their position in standings at number two continues to be well protected.
Kobe Paras was their leading scorer on the said match with his 21 points while Jun Manzo had an emotional game who finished with 17 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists.
For team NU, on the other hand, they’re coming from a defeat against the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers last October 19 also in Antipolo.
That four days ago loss made the Bulldogs officially eliminated from the game. Yet, NU is expected to make spoilers as they move forward to the exit area of the UAAP Season 82.
Dave Ildefonso was the team scoring leader in the said basketball contest with his 27 points while his brother Sean Ildefonso added with 15 markers.
