THE Southwestern University (SWU)-Cobras won the season debut game against the defending champions University of San Carlos (USC)-Warriors, 68-54, on Sunday evening, August 7, at the New Cebu Coliseum, Cebu City.
Both teams, with 10 new players in their line-up, battle their way to get the win, but the Cobras, led by the leadership of former two-time Cesafi Most Valuable Player Mark Tallo, nailed the victory.
The Warriors went on a shooting display in the early parts of the game with three consecutive 3 pointers courtesy of Kevin Oleodo, but the wingman was unable to continue the shooting streak throughout the game.
