COSAA (Cagayan de Oro Schools Athletic Association) basketball will open on Saturday (July 21) at the Xavier University gym here.
The opening program starts at 12:30 pm with Rev. Fr. Roberto Yap SJ, installed as the 10th president of Xavier University, among those to give colors in the ceremonial rites.
First to take the floor are the St. Mary's School and Merry Child School which will trade leather barbs in the 1 pm curtain raiser, followed by the 2 pm tiff between Xavier University and Capitol University all in the 12-under bracket.
"Sacred Heart and Corpus Christi are now back with Prisaa. So with host Xavier University as probably the only potent team remaining...mora'g equal lang among chance sa uban," SMS coach Rene Ilogon told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.
A double-header match-up for the 14-under level will get underway at 3 pm, pitting XU versus SMS and CU opposite Merry Child.
Capping the day is the 6 pm tertiary bout between Southern Philippine College and Capitol University. (LLS)
