Jose Rizal University will face De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde when it returns from a lengthy hiatus due to health and safety protocols on Wednesday in the NCAA 98 season at the FilOil EcoOil Center.

JRU, who last played on October 8, take on league leaders Benilde at 3pm, while Lyceum of the Philippines will look for back-to-back wins against struggling Arellano University at 12pm.

The Heavy Bombers are coming off more than two weeks of hiatus after some of the players were placed under health and safety protocols, forcing the league to postpone their final two games of the first round.

Despite a long break, JRU is still riding a five-game winning streak after picking up victories over EAC, Arellano University, Mapua University, San Beda University and Lyceum.

They will face the Blazers who are also coming off an 85-72 triumph over the Cardinals with the tandem of Will Gozum and Miggy Corteza leading the way.

In the opening salvo, Lyceum will look to join Colegio de San Juan de Letran in second place when they come up against Arellano’s slip-up.

The Pirates will be looking to build on their previous win over the EAC where they escaped 79-73, while the Chiefs will be looking to stop their three game slide.
