MANILA - Glenn Capacio, the sixth year mentor of Far Eastern University Tamaraws, is not leaving up to chance as to his team's increasing stock, hoping to get the 4-0 win-loss standing, in the 73rd UAAP men's basketball tourney.

Capacio, who has yet to win his first crown with the Morayta-based squad, said FEU would still continue the aggressiveness seen in the past plays to down winless University of the Philippines Sunday at the Philsports Arena, Pasig City.

"We cannot be complacent. As I said before, all teams have improved since the past season. We just have to prepare ourselves," he said.

The Tamaraws are up 50-33 at the end of the first half against the Fighting Maroons.

FEU is just fresh from a 76-72 squeaker over retooled National University last week, whose performance in its previous matches with Ateneo and Adamson made Capacio convinced that the Sampaloc-based cagers are a shoo-in for the Final Four.

Meantime, University of Santo Tomas and Adamson University will slug it out in the 4 p.m. match with the triumvirate of Jeric Fortuna, Clark Bautista and Jeric Teng leading the battle for UST.

Sophomore swingman Eric Camson, Jerick Canada and veteran Alex Nuyles will banner the Soaring Falcons.

Both teams are holding an identical 2-1 slate. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)
