NATIONAL University goes for the jugular against De La Salle-Zobel on Friday in the UAAP Season 78 juniors basketball championship at the Filoil Flying V Arena.
Unbeaten in 15 games, the Bullpups are one win away from their third title in the last four years.
Game Two is set at 2 p.m.
"Kung anong routine ang ginagawa namin, ini-emphasize namin na hindi puwedeng mag-relax. Wala pa kaming naa-achieve ngayong taon," said NU coach Jeff Napa.
John Lloyd Clemente and Justine Baltazar shone in the opener as the Bullpups hardly gave the Junior Archers a chance with a 78-58 victory last week.
Clemente finished with 16 points while Baltazar had 15 points and 27 rebounds, his 12th double-double of the season.
The Junior Archers need three straight wins to snatch the championship.
Season MVP Aljun Melecio will need to do better than his 15-point Game One performance for La Salle-Zobel.
