Unbeaten Eaglets, Bullpups collide

Defending champion Ateneo de Manila University and vastly improved National University put their unbeaten records on the line today as they battle for supremacy in the UAAP juniors basketball tournament at the San Juan Arena.

Both sporting identical 4-0 cards, the Eaglets and the Bullpups dispute the top spot when they meet in the 9 a.m. curtain-raiser of another thrilling four-game bill halfway into the first round of competition.

Later in the day, Far Eastern University-FERN takes on Adamson University at 10:45 a.m., followed by the 1 p.m. clash between the University of Santo Tomas and the University of the East. De La Sa-Zobel and the hard-luck University of the Philippines Integrated School wrap up today’s hostilities in the main game at 2:45 p.m.

The Eaglets are coming off a 78-61 whipping of the unpredictable Baby Falcons on Saturday behind the 23-point explosion of Ateneo big man Von Pessumal, who ably relieved main man Kiefer Ravena of the scoring load via an impressive 8-of-13 clip from the field.
