Games To­mor­row (Oli­varez Col­lege gym) 12 noon – TIP vs CEU 2 p.m. – UB vs CdSL

Im­port John Ed­cel Rojas proved ef­fi­cient on both ends as Cole­gio de San Lorenzo dis­posed of Dil­i­man Col­lege, 66-47, yes­ter­day to seize the solo lead in the Uni­ver­si­ties and Col­leges Bas­ket­ball League (UCBL) Sea­son 2 at the Oli­varez Col­lege gym in Su­cat, Parañaque City.

Rojas, an un­der­sized front­liner at 6-foot-1, he chipped in 14 points on 7-of-10 shoot­ing from the field and teamed up with Griffins ace cen­ter Jon Gabriel and Benin im­port Soule­mane Chabi Yo in con­tain­ing Blue Dragons be­he­moth Adama Di­akhite.

“He just made the most of the op­por­tu­nity given to him since their de­fense fo­cused mostly on Jon and Soule­mane,” said CdSL coach Boni Gar­cia of the Leyte­born Rojas who also added five re­bounds in less than 16 min­utes of play.

The 6-foot-6 Chabi Yo came through 24 points and 15 re­bounds, most of them com­ing dur­ing their de­ci­sive push in the se­cond canto, as CdSL streaked to its third straight vic­tory, keep­ing it­self on top of the eight-team field.

The 6-foot-9 Di­akhite, as ex­pected, led Dil­i­man Col­lege with 18 points and 11 re­bounds but he strug­gled from the field, mak­ing just eight of his 18 at­tempts.

In the other match, Rich­mon Sunga and Pruvil Ber­mudes tal­lied 16 points each as host Oli­varez Col­lege fi­nally stopped the bleed­ing at the ex­pense of strug­gling Lyceum-Batan­gas 95-77.
