Warriors tear down Nets for 22-0 start
Team Japan manned by Nippon Sports Science University (NSSU) Lions captured the basketball title of the inaugural Asia Pacific University Games after sweeping their four-game assignment against some of Cebu’s top varsity squads and visiting Malaysian cagers.
NSSU Lions concluded their final match yesterday with a 69-51 bashing of winless Malaysia manned by Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) at the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) gymnasium.
The NSSU Lions also won over eventual first runner-up University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters, 90-83, last December 4 and outlasted second-runner up University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Panthers, 74-71.
The towering Japanese also tamed Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) reigning men’s basketball champions; University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors at the lat- ter’s turf with a close 73-70 victory last Sunday that virtually sealed the crown.
The UC Webmasters edged out the USPF Panthers to bag first runner-up honors yesterday, 75-66, at the latter’s home court behind Geleant Delator’s 16 markers and Garciano Puerto Jr.’s 15 markers. Brantford Borces also had 11 points for USPF.
The UC Webmasters finished their campaign with a 3-1 (win-loss) card while USPF sports a 2-2 record. The USC Warriors had a miserable outing with a 1-3 slate followed by winless UTM (0-4).
