THE cadet division 14-under quarter-finals of the United Basketball League (UBL) Davao leg will resume on January 25 and 26 at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Woodridge Gym in Ma-a, Davao City.

Daniel R. Aguinaldo National High School (DRANHS), University of the Immaculate Concepcion (UIC), Precious International School of Davao, Assumption College of Davao (ACD), Ford Academy of the Arts and Thompson Christian School will clash against each other.

In a phone interview with Sun.Star Davao, UBL Southern Mindanao Director Rael Diaz said that DRANHS and Ford Academy of the Arts are the top teams to beat in the cadet division.

He said the top four teams will advance to the semi-finals.

The cadet event, according to him, aims to expose athletes 14-under in basketball as part of their grassroots development program.

"Athletes in the junior division (17-under) are already competitive. To further hone the skills of the younger players, we have given them a venue to compete," he said.

He also said a one-week basketball clinic will be held this summer. Schools in elementary and high school are encouraged to choose 10 athletes who will be trained for the course.
