After days of intense competition, the 2010 Milo Best SBP Passerelle Twin Tournaments National Finals crowns its champions. In the SBP, its an old-timer in Ateneo De Manila while in the passerelle, a first-time winner won in Sacred Heart-Ateneo de Cebu.
Ateneo de Manila has proven its reputation as the best small basketeers program in the country. ADMU’s trophy was actually its fourth straight national title. This year, they beat a very competitive Ateneo de Davao squad 61-51 in the finals. The host team Ateneo de Cebu won the consolation game against the Don Bosco Academy of Pampanga.
After years of frustration, the vaunted Sacred Heart-Ateneo de Cebu Magi Eagles finally won a national title. In front of their home crowd, they routed an undermanned Xavier University squad 102-53. It was a fitting end to a great season for the Magis Eagles.
caloyomment: Congatulations to the players, the parents, and the organizers of the tournament! The Milo Best tournament has always been one of the best basketball tournamnet for young players in the country. It would be nice if there is some sort of similar nationally organized tournament for the higher levels because the more they play in tough tournaments the better that they become. I hope some company will be willing to sponsor because basketball still is the no.1 sport in the country. It will also be nice if there is a similar format for other sports like football, baseball, and volleyball.
