Baby Tams seek finals

Far Eastern University-Diliman shoots for the remaining finals’ berth as it tangles with Adamson University in the UAAP Season 82 High School Boys’ Basketball Stepladder semifinals at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The twice-to-beat Baby Tamaraws and the fourth-ranked Baby Falcons collide at 3 p.m.

A win will put FEU in a title showdown with undefeated Nazareth School of National University.

The Bullpups clinched their ninth consecutive finals’ appearance after completing a perfect 14-0 elims campaign.

“Sa step-ladder kasi, iyan ang pinakamasarap sa UAAP, ‘yung makapasok ka sa semifinals. Pero iyan ang pinakamahirap na manalo sa step-ladder,” said Baby Tamaraws coach Allan Albano.

FEU dropped its final elimination match to NSNU, 73-80, that ended a 12-game win streak last Feb. 5.

The Baby Falcons have yet to win against the Baby Tamaraws this season, but the step-ladder is a different story.

Adamson University overcame a slow start to eliminate No. 3 Ateneo, 84-75, last Feb. 12, which turned out to be the last game before the league postponed all of its sports events due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

An Adamson University win will force the second step-ladder phase to a sudden-death game on Monday at the Blue Eagle Gym.

Game 1 of the best-of-three championship series is on March 6 at the San Juan arena.
