DLSU targets No. 4 against winless EAC
(The Philippine Star) - May 11, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Unbeaten La Salle takes on winless Emilio Aguinaldo College today even as resurgent University of the Philippines guns for a third win in row against Perpetual Help in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup at the Filoil Flying V Center in San Juan.

With their rookie players stepping up, the Archers rolled past the UP Maroons, Gilas cadets and the Altas with the Taft-based school tipped to stretch their win run against the Generals, who have dropped their first three games.

Gametime is at 4:30 p.m.

The Archers, under new head coach Louie Gonzales, have surprised the field with their young talents, led by Brandon Bates, Taane Samuel and Miggy Corteza, and cohesion despite undergoing a rebuilding phase.  

After three straight defeats, the UP Fighting Maroons are back in the hunt with victories over the National U Bulldogs and the Gilas cadets and are aiming to add the Altas to their list of victims in their 6:30 p.m. encounter.

One thing going for them is they will be playing a Perpetual side sans veteran AJ Coronel, who was suspended for accumulating two unsportsmanlike fouls during their loss to Gilas last week.

Meanwhile, Ateneo de Cebu guns for its second win against FEU in juniors play at 10 a.m.

In other seniors matches, Lyceum tangles with St. Benilde at 12:30 with the Pirates fielding in a young team to give their veterans the chance to rest following their PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup title conquest recently, while UST (0-1) faces San Sebastian (1-1) at 2:15 p.m.
