Preview: DLSU vs. UP
The University of the Philippines (UP) men's basketball team is looking to maintain its undefeated streak and solidify its position at the top of the standings as they face De La Salle University (DLSU) in the first round of the UAAP Season 86 tournament.
After a dominating 110-79 victory over UST, UP currently boasts a perfect 5-0 record, marking their best start in the UAAP men's basketball Final Four era. Their impressive performance has positioned them as one of the frontrunners for the championship.
While UP's final game of the first round is a highly anticipated finals rematch against archrivals Ateneo, the team is fully focused on the immediate task at hand: overcoming the Green Archers. A victory against DLSU would bolster UP's hopes of redemption after narrowly missing the championship in Season 85.
On the other hand, the Green Archers are determined to bounce back following a challenging 77-80 loss to the NU Bulldogs. This defeat has caused DLSU to share the third-place spot in the team standings with the Soaring Falcons, each holding a 3-2 slate.
The upcoming matchup between UP and DLSU promises an exciting clash between two powerhouse teams in UAAP men's basketball, with UP looking to extend their winning streak and DLSU aiming to regain their winning form and climb up the UAAP team standings.
