STREAKING Far Eastern University tries to remain unbeaten as it goes up against National University on Wednesday in the UAAP men’s basketball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Tamaraws go for their fifth straight victory when they take on the Bulldogs at 4 p.m.
FEU coach Nash Racela said that their preparation won’t be different when they face the Bulldogs, who occupy second spot with a 3-1 win-loss card.
“No different from the first four games,” said Racela. “Same approach, same mentality.”
The Tamaraws sustained their winning run on Saturday when they came back from a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to beat La Salle, 83-79.
Racela said they are up against another formidable foe in the Bulldogs, who defeated University of the Philippines, 74-60, last Sunday.
“We know we will be in for a tough battle against a very fluid NU team,” said Racela.
