Thursday, April 10, 2014
THE SOUTHWESTERN University Cobras picked another victory to virtually secure the 1st Minglanilla Mayor Elanito Pena Cup Basketball tournament title after beating arch rivals University of the Visayas Green Lancers, 74-49, last Wednesday at the Minglanilla Sports Complex.
The team that will get the highest number of wins will be declared champions in this three-day, four-team tournament.
The victory was SWU’s second in the tournament that started last Tuesday night, when they defeated the visiting Jose Rizal University (JRU) Heavy Bombers, 69-53.
UV was able to give the Cobras a tough fight in the opening quarter but eventually collapsed in the second half when SWU went for the kill by outscoring the undersized Lancers by 10 points in the third and fourth quarters.
Landry Sanjo led SWU with 24 points.
