Adamson University no longer has anything to play for as it is already locked into the third-seed in the UAAP 80 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

That doesn’t mean, however, that they don’t want continued momentum heading into the next round.

The Soaring Falcons go for their fourth consecutive victory on Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum at the expense of a Far Eastern University side that needs a win to claim an outright playoff berth.

Adamson (9-4) looks to frustrate the Tamaraws (6-7) and all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.

A win for FEU will automatically advance them into the playoffs and eliminate both National University and the University of the Philippines.

A loss for FEU will mean that they will be tied with either NU or UP at 6-8.

In that case, the winner in the matchup between the Bulldogs and the Fighting Maroons at 2:00 PM will figure in a knockout bout with the Tamaraws for the fourth-seed.
