Game Preview: 2 > 3 Deja Vu?

On Wednesday, the Green Archers will try to accomplish what they did back in 2007.  That is to say that beating a team twice whole season long is way meaningful than getting beat by the same team thrice in the same season.  As we all know back in that championship run seven years ago, the Green Archers have defeated the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles only twice that season but it was all the “when it mattered most” games en route to that spectacular championship season by defeating the mighty University of the East Red Warriors, a team that I personally consider a PBA D-League team masquerading as a UAAP team that time.

Archers, Tams Collide for the Third Time to Dispute Much-Coveted Twice to Beat Advantage

The road to the back-to-back continues as the De La Salle University Green Archers takes on the Far Eastern University Tamaraws in a playoff game to determine the #2 finisher in the elimination round, which will also get the twice to beat advantage in the Final Four.  For the second straight year, DLSU and FEU will contest this much-coveted position going into the post-season, which most UAAP observers call the virtual best of three series since either DLSU or FEU has to win two out of their next three possible games to advance to the finals.
