COLLEGIATE basketball fans finally get to watch the NCAA on a channel with a wider reach as the league's postseason games are set to be aired live on TV5 starting on Thursday.

The semifinals tip off at the Mall of Asia Arena at 12:30 p.m. with second seed Letran taking on San Sebastian, before top seed and defending champion San Beda faces fourth seed University of Perpetual in the next game at 2:30 p.m.
