State U (3-1) and the Tamaraws (3-2) both go for a third win in a row at 2:00 PM and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
In Women’s action, the UE Lady Warriors (3-1) seek a share of second against the Adamson Lady Falcons (1-3) at 10:00 AM while the FEU Lady Tamaraws (2-3) seek a bounce back win at the expense of the UP Lady Maroons (0-4) at 8:00 AM.
