The University of San Carlo Warriors will battle the reigning CESAFI Champions University of Cebu for a slot in the Final 4 of the Philippine Collegiate Champions League.  This match-up was a result of their respective victories in the Sweet 16. The Warriors eliminated perennial Visayan powerhouse University of the Visayas Green Lancers 71-64 while UC coasted in its win against the University of Ilo-Ilo Wildcats 96-66.

USC was led by Sam Jordan Hermosa who sizzled with 25 points including 10 in the final quarter. He was backed by Joven Cid Cortes and Mike Cantonao who scored 18 and 13 respectively.  Ralf Olivares topscored for the defeated Green Lancers who recently ended their 9-year streak of CESAFI championships. In the main game, Junmar Fajardo was dominant as expect. He collected 14 points, 16 rebounds, three assists and three blocks.

caloycomment: It is very surprising that UV was eliminated early. Most likely, we will see Junmar Fajardo strut his wares in Manila for the Final 4.  The FEU-JRU tiff is a very interesting match between a UAAP powerhouse and the 3rd placers of the recent NCAA.  Let’s see who would want the title more.
