Preview: "One Big Fight" vs. "UP Fight"
Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) and the University of the Philippines (UP) are set to clash in an eagerly anticipated rematch of last year's finals to conclude the first round of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines Season 86 men's basketball tournament.
The UP Fighting Maroons have been on a relentless run this season, winning all of their six games with an average margin of victory at 14.7 points. Their quest for redemption following a runner-up finish in Season 85 has been spearheaded by reigning MVP Malick Diouf and returning senior captain CJ Cansino.
For UP, the focus is on sustaining their winning streak, assessing areas for improvement, and not letting emotions take over when they face Ateneo.
In contrast, Ateneo has experienced mixed results in their first six games, alternating between wins and losses. The Blue Eagles currently hold a 3-3 win-loss record in the UAAP Team Stangdings.
After routing UST, 97-77, Ateneo is eager to secure consecutive wins for the first time this season. They are determined to disrupt UP's perfect start and make a statement.
Key players like Chris Koon, Kai Ballungay, Joseph Obasa, and Mason Amos will lead Ateneo's charge in this pivotal match, aiming to shift their fortunes as they head into the crucial phase of the competition vying for a spot in the Final Four.
