Monday, July 14, 2014
SACRED Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) continues to sizzle in the Milo Best SBP and Passerelle Twin Tournament Cebu leg after going unbeaten in the third week of competition in three venues – SHS-AdC Gen. Maxilom Ave. Campus Gym, Don Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) Gym and University of San Carlos (USC).
SHS-AdC battled back after being down three quarters to edge past last year’s runner-up University of the Visayas (UV), 40-38, in the passerelle division.
SHS-AdC was trailing 38-27 entering the fourth quarter. But the Magis Eagles crawled their way back up and finally tied the game 38-all with 1:02 left in regulation.
Jed Colonia made the biggest play of the game, intercepting a pass and making a lay-up for a 40-38 lead.
SHS-AdC swarmed UV on defense and forced the Green Lancers scoreless in the final quarter.
Steven Co and John Chen each had eight points to lead SHS-AdC, while Christian Dado had nine for UV.
The younger Magis Eagles squad held on despite a scoreless fourth quarter to walk away with a 31-26 victory over UV in the SBP divsion.
SHS-AdC led from start to finish but had a scare in the fourth with a late game rally by the Baby Green Lancers.
SHS-AdC was leading 31-18 at the start of the fourth but UV slowly crawled back up just falling short of tying the game by five points at the sound of the buzzer.
Aaron Abunawan led SHS-AdC with six, while Cholo Cañada scored seven for UV.
Defending champions USC still remains unbeaten in both the Passerelle and SBP division.
USC crushed Cebu Eastern College (CEC), 65-49, in the Passerelle division, while the younger Baby Warriors manhandled CEC, 79-27.
SHS-AdC faces CEC, while USC plays UV in next week’s Passerelle division semifinals.
