The University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Panthers has a surprising 2-0 record in the 11th Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation (CESAFI) Seniors Basketball tournament, after defeating the favored Southwestern University (SWU) Cobras, 62-59. The Yayoy Alcoseba-coached Cobras has a 2-game losing streak to start the season after the team similarly crumbled during crunch time when it faced the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors in its opening match.
Panther’s Fritz Dajalos scored 20 points to somehow negate the stellar play of SWU’s Justin Aboude who finished with 24 points.
In the high school division, the defending champions Cebu Eastern College (CEC) Dragons improved to 2-1 after routing a hapless Don Bosco Technology Center (DBTC) Greywolves, 92-59. Alfred Sedillo and James Sumayang paced the Dragons with 26 and 17 markers respectively.
