Sun.Star Cebu - - PRIME SPORTS -

Batch 2002 San Re­me­gio Prop­er­ties lived to fight another day af­ter a 52-44 win over 1990-1991 Kogi-Q in the quar­ter­fi­nal round of Di­vi­sion B of the 22nd Sa­cred Heart-Ate­neo Bas­ket­ball Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion (Shaabaa) tour­na­ment last Wed­nes­day.

Other teams who ex­tended their se­ries are 2008 Cot­ton­seed and 2005 Bi­zol in Di­vi­sion C and 1996 White Gold Club in Di­vi­sion B.

The No. 6 Cot­ton­seed shocked de­fend­ing cham­pion and third seed 2007 Petron Global, 32-29; Bi­zol dom­i­nated the 2006 Prince Ware­house Club in the open­ing quar­ter en route to a 42-30 win; and White Gold Club pulled a 6656 win over the 1995 Savers De­pot.

Af­ter an evenly-fought first two quar­ters, San Re­me­gio surged to a 37-31 lead af­ter outscor­ing Kogi-Q, 19-13, in the third pe­riod.

The six-point lead was enough for Batch 2002 to help them stay afloat against the re­peated at- tempts of Batch 1990-1991 to turn the ta­ble around.

Kogi-Q will try to com­plete the upset when they face San Re­me­gio anew this Sun­day at the SHS-Ate­neo de Cebu old cam­pus at 7 p.m. White Gold will also go for another win against Savers De­pot, while Bi­zol will face Prince Ware­house at 8:30 p.m.

On the other hand, Game 2 of the best-of-3 cham­pi­onship se­ries be­tween Har­ley David­son and the de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Cebu Land­mas­ters will be at the Magis Ea­gles Arena at the SHSAdC Can­du­man Cam­pus at 2:30 p.m. on Sun­day. /
