Sun.Star Davao - - TOP SPORTS -

THE As­sump­tion Col­lege of Davao (ACD) War­riors booked a ticket to the Min­danao Fi­nals af­ter thrash­ing Mary­knoll Col­lege of Pan­abo, 122-69, in the fi­nals of the Davao As­so­ci­a­tion of Catholic Schools-Catholic Ed­u­ca­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of the Philip­pines (Dacs-Ceap) Davao City elim­i­na­tions that came to a close yes­ter­day at the Philip­pine Women’s Col­lege (PWC) Gym.

The War­riors will make their sec­ond ap­pear­ance and will test their met­tle against cham­pion teams from Jolo, Sulu, Bu­tuan City, Zam­boanga City, Ca­gayan de Oro City and Gen­eral San­tos City.

Cris Marvin Vistal paced the War­riors with 16 points while AJ Royo, Arnol John Frend Heje and Paul Malano drilled in 12 points each.

They ear­lier es­caped past Cor Jesu Col­lege (CJC), 89-80.

Coach Rol­lie San­cho, in a phone in­ter­view, said they ad­justed dur­ing first game against Di­gos City to keep the mo­men­tum.

But San­cho is un­sure of de­fend­ing the Min­danao Fi­nals crown con­sid­er­ing tough ri­vals.

"Mga cham­pion din yung mga kalaro namin kaya di namin yan masabi," San­cho said, adding that they have yet to re­sume train­ing.

Last year, the Ate­neo de Davao Univer­sity (Addu) Blue Knights was sup­posed to rep­re­sent Davao City in the Min­danao Fi­nals but begged off due to se­cu­rity pur­poses, thus, the War­riors re­placed them.

ACD se­cured the ti­tle at the ex­pense of Xavier Univer­sity of Ca­gayan de Oro City.

Mean­while, Tagum City will host the Min­danao Fi­nals slated Fe­bru­ary 1.
