FEU-D guns for UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Finals berth at Adamson’s expense


Far Eastern University-Diliman shoots for the remaining Finals berth as it tangles with Adamson University in the UAAP Season 82 High School Boys’ Basketball Stepladder semifinals at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The twice-to-beat Baby Tamaraws and the fourth-ranked Baby Falcons collide at 3 p.m.

A win will put FEU in a title showdown with undefeated Nazareth School of National University.

The Bullpups clinched their ninth consecutive Finals appearance after completing a perfect 14-0 elims campaign.

“Sa step-ladder kasi, iyan ang pinakamasarap sa UAAP, yung makapasok ka sa semifinals. Pero iyan ang pinakamahirap na manalo sa step-ladder,” said Baby Tamaraws coach Allan Albano.

FEU dropped its final elimination match to NSNU, 73-80, that ended a 12-game win streak last Feb. 5.

“Message sa amin yung game namin (against the Bullpups) na hindi kami puwedeng mag-relax. So kailangan, pagbutihan at paghandaan namin ang Adamson,” he added.

The Baby Falcons have yet to win against the Baby Tamaraws this season, but the step-ladder is a different story.

Adamson University overcame a slow start to eliminate No. 3 Ateneo, 84-75, last Feb. 12, which turned out to be the last game before the league postponed all of its sports events due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.UAAP-82-Jrs-ADU-vs.-ADMU-Figueroa-2743 FEU-D guns for UAAP 82 Boys Basketball Finals berth at Adamson's expense AdU Basketball FEU News UAAP  - philippine sports news

Cholo Anonuevo, who recently committed to play for FEU’s men’s basketball program, will spearhead the Baby Tamaraws.

An Adamson University win will force the second step-ladder phase to a sudden-death game on Monday at the Blue Eagle Gym.
