AS part of its program in preparation for the 15th season of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi), last year’s runner-up the University of San Carlos Warriors booked themselves a match against the unpredictable Cebu Institute of Technology-University Wildcats in an exhibition match tonight in Asturias town.
The exhibition match is just the highlight of the opening of the 2nd Vice Mayor Joel Dumdum Inter-Barangay Basketball Tournament, which will be participated by 14 teams.
According to town Councillor Dongkoy Dumdum, the tournament organizer, the 14 teams are divided into two brackets with the teams in each group playing a double-round robin, home and away format elimination round. The top two teams in each division will play in a crossover semfinal match. The finals will be a best-of-three championship series.
The defending champions Barangay Poblacion are hoping to keep the crown and pocket the P40,000 champion’s prize.
The runners-up will receive P30,000; P20,000; and P10,000 respectively.
