Colegio de San Juan de Letran and Emilio Aguinaldo College are both fading in the playoff hunt in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Still, a much-needed win may just be the big boost they’re looking for.

The Knights and the Generals fight over that much-needed win at the middle of the Filoil Flying V Centre floor on Friday.

Fifth-running Letran (7-7) dukes it out with sixth-running EAC (6-8) at 2:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and via livestream.

In the day’s other games, Jose Rizal University wants nothing more than to hold onto solo third when they do battle against still dangerous University of Perpetual Help at 12:00 PM while Lyceum of the Philippines University welcomes a challenge by San Sebastian College-Recoletos at 4:00 PM.

And in Juniors action, the fifth-running San Sebastian Staglets (7-6) figure in a crucial contest against the sixth-running LPU Junior Pirates (7-7) at 6:00 PM. Also, the 8-6 Letran Squires a bounce back win at the expense of the 1-13 EAC Brigadiers at 10:00 AM while also-rans 4-8 Perpetual Junior Altas and 4-9 JRU Light Bombers are pitted against each other at 8:00 AM.
