THE University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers and the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) Jaguars will try to end the elimination round of the college division on a positive note as they take on separate foes in the 2016 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc.

Last Sunday, defending champions University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors finished their elimination round by scoring a repeat against the University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters, 75-68.
USC finished the elimination round with a 6-6 record, just enough to earn a twice-to-beat advantage against the No.5 team, which could be USPF it it wins tonight. But if UV wins, UC, which has a 3-9 record, will finish as the No. 5 team.
The Panthers scored a thrilling 83-81 overtime win against the Wildcats last Saturday to get a fighting chance for the No. 5 spot.
