Bulldogs seek Filoil elims sweep vs Maroons

By

NATIONAL U seeks a sweep of the elimination round when it battles University of the Philippines today even as La Salle shoots for a quarterfinal berth against winless Emilio Aguinaldo College in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup.

The Bulldogs are heavily favored to notch their eighth straight victory against the Maroons in the 4:15 p.m. duel at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Unbeaten in four outings, the Archers earlier tangle with the Generals at 2:30 p.m.

Letran, stung by a loss to University of the East last Wednesday, hopes to keep its quarterfinal bid alive against Lyceum in the first game at 12:45 p.m.

The Bulldogs have been on a tear with the inspired play of Ray Parks keying their surge. Bulldogs center Alfred Aroga has also shown flashes of brilliance that makes him a marked man in the paint come the UAAP season.

The Knights absorbed a 64-76 loss to University of the East last Wednesday in a game where Raymond Almazan, Rey Nambatac and Mark Cruz all struggled. The loss dropped Letran’s record to 3-3.

The Pirates have also groped for form in the tournament with a go-to scorer still yet to emerge for coach Bonnie Tan.

The Archers, one of the two unbeaten teams so far, have been getting solid production from almost everyone on the roster.

While Jeron Teng and Norbert Torres have come up big in several games, La Salle coach Gee Abanilla has actually leaned on a balanced attack in their first four games.
