Defending champion Diliman College and University of Batangas try to extend their winning runs to three games when they battle separate rivals today in the PG Flex Linoleum-UCBL at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.
The Diliman Blue Dragons of coach Rensy Bajar collide with the Olivarez College Sea Lions at 2 p.m. while the UB Brahmans take on the National College of Business and Arts at 4 p.m. to cap off another three-game schedule for the eight-team tournament.
The Blue Dragons and Brahmans are currently locked in a three-way tie for the lead with the heavy favorites Centro Escolar University Scorpions.
The Scorpions nailed their second straight win with a 70-54 spanking of the Wildcats on Thursday in a game that saw them play with only six players as the rest were preparing for their semis match in the PBA D-League later in the day.
Meantime, a losing streak will be snapped when Technological Institute of the Philippines and Philippine Christian University-Dasmariñas clash in the 12 noon opener.
Both the TIP Engineers and PCU-D Dolphins dropped their first two games with the former losing to the Brahmans (81-72) and Blue Dragons (86-77) and the latter bowing to the Brahmans (92-80) and Blue Dragons (97-69).
Johnnel Rey Bauzon, Robbie Darang and JJ Caasalan will once again banner the Blue Dragons while the Brahmans will be bannered by Jerrick Caspe and Cameroonian center Kenne Raoul Yemeli.
The Sea Lions (1-1) are looking for a big follow-up to their 71-62 win over the Pirates.
