THRILLING matches await in semifinal round of the SM Chooks to Go National Basketball Training Center (NBTC)-Cagayan de Oro leg on Saturday, December 7 at the Nazareth gym.
The Assumption Montessori School (AMS) Jaguars will face Sacred Heart of Jesus Montessori School (SHJMS) Saints in the preliminary set at 6 p.m., followed by the equally-exciting tussle between the Cagayan de Oro National High School (NHS) Tigers and Southern Philippine College (SPC) Sharks at 7:30 p.m.
“Coaches James Racines of SMS, Boy Dacoco of SHJMS, Bismark Labadan of City High and Rey Dangcal of SPC. Mao ni sila ang mga top coaches karon sa Cagayan de Oro puro kusog ilang gipanghawiran nga teams maong bibo alegre kayo ang semis karong Sabado,” said local NBTC coordinator Arvin Martinez.
The multi-titled Corpus Christi Knights of coach Carlo Dagalea apparently failed to make the big 4 round after a big upset in the quarterfinals when the Saints’ Carl Galagar hit a buzzer-beater for a 87-86 reversal.
The City High Tigers also dealt the CCS Knights a 112-105 defeat in their bid to force a three-way logjam tiebreaker for the last semis spot.
