The DLSU Green Archers go up against the UST Growling Tigers in the second round of the UAAP Season 82 men's basketball tournament. After suffering a 21-point drubbing from their previous game, the Green Archers return to the court with a mission to make it back to the playoffs. Justine Baltazar and the rest of the Taft-based squad seek to improve their 5-6 win-loss slate and flee from the brink of elimination. The Growling Tigers, meanwhile, aim to ride the crest of their two-game winning streak to exact revenge on the team who beat them in the first half of the tourney. CJ Cansino looks to lead the España-based crew in securing a spot in the Final Four with a 7-5 win-loss record.
