San Beda will open Thursday’s triple-header as they battle a hungry and dangerous Adamson squad. The Soaring Falcons are on a three-match win streak. The two collide at 1:30pm.
The red-hot Green Archers, who sport a 5-0 record to pace Group B in the tournament, take on the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates who are at the bottom of the pole with a 1-5 slate at 3:15pm.
Group B third placer, Ateneo still reeling from its thrashing from La Salle, looks to get back on track.
