Cebu City-based Univer­sity of Visayas Green Lancers sur­vives past Col­le­gio de Sta. Ana de Vic­to­ria of Ba­colod City, 72-68, to emerge cham­pion in the Philip­pine Col­le­giate Cham­pi­ons League 2018 Visayas-Min­danao fi­nals at the Ar­ca­dia Life­style and Fit­ness Cen­ter in Davao City Wed­nes­day evening.

UV im­port Bassieuru Sackor led in scor­ing with 18 points while his team­mates Gileant De­la­tor and Michael Maestre added 15 and 11 points, re­spec­tively.

Sackor, De­la­tor and Maestre took con­trol of the game af­ter Rey Suerte was rel­e­gated to the bench be­ing in foul trou­ble. The lat­ter sank eight mark­ers be­fore he was rested when the op­pos­ing squad was lead­ing by three points in the fourth quar­ter.

Few min­utes later, UV ral­lied with an 8-0 run to cut CSAV’s lead to four, 60-64.

A see-saw bat­tle then en­sued be­tween the two teams that suc­cumbed to cru­cial er­rors but the more re­silient Ce­buanos pre­vailed down the stretch to ad­vance to the next round of com­pe­ti­tion against Naga City Academy.

UV Coach Gary Cortes, how­ever, said the team still has a lot of things to im­prove and change in the sys­tem when they clash against the Naga team.

“Lig-on sila nga kaat­bang. Duha ang ilang im­port sam­tang kami isa lang (They are a strong team to reckon with. They also have two im­ports while we only have one),” Cortes added. /
