MANILA–There will be no CJ Austria and Adama Faye in Wednesday's UAAP men's basketball treat as they will serve their respective one-game suspensions. 

Austria incurred his penalty after he clotheslined Patrick Sleat with 5:59 left in the third quarter of La Salle's Saturday game against Far Eastern University.

Faye, on the other hand, got his disqualifying foul after he hit Harvey Pagsanjan in the head while going for the rebound with 59 seconds left in the third quarter of the University of Santo Tomas' Sunday game against the University of the East.

According to UAAP's rules, an ejection from the game also comes with an automatic one-game suspension.

The Green Archers will take on the NU Bulldogs in the first game of the midweek action at 11 a.m., while the Growling Tigers will battle the Tamaraws in the nightcap at 6:30 p.m.

In the other games, Ateneo will lock horns with the Adamson University Falcons at 1 p.m., while UE takes on the University of the Philippines at 4:30 p.m.

All games will happen at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay.
