    NATIONAL University and Ateneo-B set up a titular showdown in the 18th University Games men’s basketball tournament after surviving their respective semifinal matches on Sunday in Bacolod City.

    The Bulldogs avenged their UAAP Final Four loss to University of Santo Tomas by defeating the Tigers, 68-63, while the Blue Eagles-B won over Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation (Cesafi) champion University of Visayas, 75-49.

    The finals is scheduled on Monday.

    NU, which has in its roster Alfred Aroga, Henri Betayene, JJ Alejandro, and several players from its Team B, turned back the shorthanded UST squad which played without Kevin Ferrer and Aljon Mariano.
