THE two best Passerelle squads of last year’s tournament face each other in the semifinal round of the Milo Best SBP Passerelle Twin Tournament Cebu leg.
Defending champions University of San Carlos (USC) takes on runner-up University of the Visayas (UV), a rematch of last year’s finals, in the opening semi-final game tomorrow at 8 a.m. at the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) Gym.

UV’s only loss in the tournament was a tight 40-38 defeat to SHS-AdC.
