Far Eastern University guns for a fourth victory against Jose Rizal U in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Hanes Cup today at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

The Tamaraws, running second in Group B at 3-1, tackle the Bombers at 3:30 p.m. with FEU coach Bert Flores worried about the team’s defense.

“We have to strengthen our defense,” said Flores. “We already solved our problem in rebounding. But now, we need a stopper.”

San Sebastian, which narrowly survived St. Benilde two days ago, tries to string up a third win versus Lyceum at 1:45 p.m.


In Group A, Letran also goes for a third triumph against the University of the Philippines at 5:15 p.m.

The Stags will rely on their explosive tandem of Calvin Abueva and Ian Sangalang after pipping the Blazers, 82-80, Wednesday.

Meanwhile, tickets for the first showdown between fierce rivals Ateneo and La Salle this season are now available at SM Tickets (470-2222).

The blockbuster match is set at 6 p.m. on June 2 after the 1 p.m. game between San Beda and Letran.

Ticket prices are pegged at P400 (ringside), P300 (lower box) and P150 (upper box).  With a report from Jan Edward B. Ballesteros, Contributor
