Bombers try to keep distance vs Knights
Jose Rizal U tries to tighten its grip on third spot as it clashes with Letran on Thursday, while Emilio Aguinaldo College seeks to boost its Final Four hopes in NCAA Season 93 basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
Coming off overtime losses last week, the Heavy Bombers and Knights are gunning for victories that will give them the inside track in the race for Final Four berths.
With a 6-4 record, JRU sits at third behind unbeaten Lyceum and San Beda. But a victory by the Knights, who hold an even 5-5 record, will forge a tie at third spot.
The Generals tangle with the Mapua Cardinals at 4 p.m. with a win allowing them to move up to solo sixth spot.
Tied with Arellano and Perpetual Help at 4-6, EAC hopes for an improved performance after losing to San Sebastian last week.
The Bombers absorbed a 110-115 double overtime defeat to Arellano last Thursday in a game where Tey Teodoro exploded for 30 points. JRU, however, faded late in the game and saw its four-game winning run snapped. —CEDELF P. TUPAS
