The University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons is scheduled for a semi-finals game against the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers at 4:00 P.M. on November 10, 2019 live from the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.
The Fighting Maroons wanted to exercise their win-once incentive and then move to the Finals round while the Growling Tigers will try to extend their semi-finals stint to another knockout game when the UAAP Season 82 returns at the Big Dome this afternoon.
Beyond the respective teams, elimination round record it appears that UST is much more superior than the number 2 positioned UP.
In their first two meetings in the first round of the tournament, the University of Santo Tomas swept the University of the Philippines and the winning margin is 11.
During their first bout last September 17, the Growling Tigers had a convincing victory, 85-69. Then in their second meeting still it’s UST by six points, 84-78.
UST needed those winning formula once again as this time around they needed to win twice for them to return to the biggest stage of UAAP.
For team UP, they only needed to win once and have their Finals rematch versus the Ateneo Blue Eagles next Saturday.
