It’s the end of “hell week” for La Salle as the defending champions play their third game in a week when they shoot for a fourth straight UAAP men’s basketball tournament victory against University of the Philippines Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.


Just three days after an 85-73 thumping of the Adamson Falcons, the Archers battle a UP squad bolstered by the inclusion of forward Rob Ricafort in the lineup.

“We just want to get this week over with and hopefully with a win,” said La Salle coach Aldin Ayo.


Ricafort gained a court order that allows him to play after the UAAP Board of Trustees banned him due to the league’s new age rule.

Meanwhile, Far Eastern U battles winless Santo Tomas at 2 p.m.
