MANILA--FEU and Ateneo face off one more time in the UAAP men's basketball Final Four on Wednesday for the right to face La Salle finals.

The Tamaraws and the Blue Eagles collide once again at 4 p.m. at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City.

FEU forced a sudden death against Ateneo after canceling the latter's twice-to-beat edge with a 62-61 win at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay on Saturday night.

While momentum may be on the Tams' side, Coach Nash Racela believes the rematch is still anybody's game.

"All we did was to force the last game. I don't think [we have] an advantage [on Wednesday]," he said.

Coach Aldin Ayo, who was actually in attendance on Saturday, is expected to scout the game anew in preparation of Game 1 of the best-of-three finals starting next Saturday at the MOA Arena.
