    De La Salle Green Archers and Adamson Falcons Fight For 3rd Spot

    Source: Philstar.com

    Adamson and De La Salle clash for the No. 3 seeding and the option to take on the No. 2 team in the Final Four when they tangle today in the UAAP Season 73 seniors basketball tournament at the Araneta Coliseum.

    Tied at 8-5, the Soaring Falcons and the Green Archers mix it up at 4 p.m., each looking to end their eliminations campaign on a higher position and on a winning note after dropping their previous games against National and University of the East, respectively.

    “It doesn’t matter who we’ll go up against in the semis. What’s important now is for us to get momentum from our last game in the eliminations,” said AdU coach Leo Austria, whose wards prevailed over DLSU in the first round, 70-68.

    Winner of today’s matchup will earn the right to face the No. 2 squad instead of the prelims topnotcher in the semis.

    The top two spots will still be decided on Saturday when Far Eastern (11-2) and Ateneo (10-3) collide in the last day of elims.

    However, both AdU and DLSU still need to beat their respective Final Four opponents twice to qualify to the championship round.

    The NU Bulldogs (6-7), meanwhile, look to draw inspiration from their 62-59 upset of Adamson over the weekend as they cap their season against slumping University of Santo Tomas (4-9) in the 2 p.m curtain-raiser.
