While Lyceum of the Philippines University has remained undefeated at this point in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament, it will also be entering its toughest stretch yet.

The Pirates will be pitted against playoff-bound Jose Rizal University on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as a buildup to their rematch with defending champion San Beda College a week after.

The league-leaders set out for 17-0 while the 11-6 Heavy Bombers set out to do what no other team has done thus far at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.

Meanwhile, San Beda College rekindles its rivalry with Colegio de San Juan de Letran at 2:00 PM while San Sebastian College-Recoletos looks to take care of business against suddenly competitive Mapua University at 12:00 PM.

In Juniors action, the 11-5 San Beda Red Cubs shoot for a spot in the Final Four against archrival 10-6 Letran Knights at 10:00 AM while the 13-3 Malayan High School of Science Red Robins seek to push the 9-7 San Sebastian Golden Stags to the brink at 8:00 AM. There will also be a matchup between the 7-9 LPU Junior Pirates and the 6-11 JRU Light Bombers.
