Wednesday, February 26, 2014
LYCEUM Northwestern University scored another impressive win Tuesday afternoon to take and early 2-0 win loss card in the open bracket of the 8th Panagbenga Cup Invitational Basketball Tournament.
After their nail biting 96-95 victory against Team Dos during the opener, the Dagupan based dribbler followed it up with another victory by edging Saint Louis University, 95 – 69 Tuesday afternoon at the Easter College gym.
Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League men’s basketball champion University of Baguio meanwhile opened their campaign by escaping Team Dos, composed of former and present collegiate dribblers who has yet to win after two games, 102-97.
La Union College of Nursing, Arts and Sciences also made their presence felt this early by drubbing the beefed – up service contracting firm GWE, 100-83.
Action in the open bracket resumes Saturday starting 3:30 in the afternoon at the Easter College gym with LUCNAS squaring off against DMMSU Stingers.
GWE and Team Dos will seek their first win in the tournament as they tangle after the 3:30 curtain raiser.
Some 32 teams in four different brackets are seeing action in the 8th staging of the tournament which officially opened February 23.
Overall event coordinator Edwin Edades said the tournament is still open and accepting teams who are interested to join.
“Medyo nag-eextend kami sa registration para i-accommodate ang mga iba pang teams na hahabol, although maayos na ang mga bracketing for the season it is still open para sa interested pa na sumali,” Edades quipped.
