Sun.Star Davao - - TOP SPORTS -

The Univer­sity of Visayas (UV) Cebu Green Lancers emerged cham­pion in the Philip­pine Col­le­giate Cham­pi­ons League (PCCL) Re­gional Cham­pi­onship held Fri­day at the Ar­ca­dia Lifestyle and Ac­tive Fit­ness Cen­ter gym.

The Green Lancers beat Naga Col­leges Foun­da­tion, 8972, dom­i­nat­ing the game from the start.

The Ce­buanos could be seen play­ing as a team as most star play­ers sac­ri­ficed their per­sonal gain for the team’s wel­fare, giv­ing the ball to only those who are ei­ther near the bas­ket or those who could break free from Naga’s de­fense.

Jo­sue Segumpan erupted with 26 points as Gileant De­la­tor added 19. Jan­cork Cabahug and Michael Maestre each scored 10 points.

Rey Suerte, who scored

21 in the first of their best-ofthree fi­nals, made nine points while im­port Bas­suero Sackor was lim­ited to four bas­kets. But the lat­ter was a for­mi­da­ble force in de­fense.

Naga’s Emanuel Ojoula led NCF with 15 points.

Suerte was hailed most valu­able player of the league.
