JUNIORS Division defending champions Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu Magis Eagles will be gunning for their third win as they play the undersized University of the Visayas Baby Lancers in the 2015 Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) Basketball tournament at the Cebu Coliseum at 4 p.m. today.

In the main game, the Cebu Institute of Technology-University Wildcats will shoot for their first win as they play the University of Cebu Webmasters in the main game at 5:30 p.m.

In the opening match, the winless Don Bosco Technological Center Greywolves (0-4) will try to make it to the winners’ column as they play the dangerous University of Southern Philippines Foundation Baby Panthers (2-1) at 1 p.m., as the CIT-U Wildkittens (0-3) are looking for back-to-back wins when they face the slumping UC Baby Webmasters at 2:30 p.m.

Protecting a 2-0 win-loss card, SHS-AdC coach Rommel Rasmo will once again lean on his emerging scoring leader Eroll Pastor, who has proven to be a worthy addition to the defending champions, who is yet to find a leader inside the paint.

Andrew Velasco is also expected to do some damage on offense along with Patrick Wilson Yu and Phil Renzo Calumpang, Travis Mantua and Alex Visser.

UV’s Coach Abel Bungcaras on the other hand, will try to bring back the ace game of Raul Jancork Cabahug, who is still struggling offensively.

However, UV has to find a solution for its current dilemma, as nobody aside from Cabahug steps up offensively making them predictable.

UV is currently toting a 2-1 win-loss record – one win came via forfeiture and the other over the doormat team DBTC Greywolves. The Baby Lancers lost via 65-43 last Aug. 8, that unmasked the team’s competitiveness in the tournament.

Meanwhile, CIT-U which paraded a deeper and meaner line-up is now struggling to make into the winners’ column.

It forfeited its opening game of the season for failure to submit an ECG certificate on time, they pushed the Southwestern University Cobras to the limit before giving up a 69-64 but suddenly lost steam and became too predictable facing against the USJ-R Jaguars who handed them a 102-71 bashing.
