Sea Lions tame Jaguars, near Ucaa cage sweep

THE OLIVAREZ College Sea Lions subdued the Philippine School of Business Administration Jaguars, 85-63, on Saturday and moved within a win of sweeping the elimination round of the 12th Universities and Colleges Athletic Association (Ucaa) men’s basketball tournament.

Clarence Singh shot a game-high 14 points for the Sea Lions at Olivarez College gymnasium in Sucat, Parañaque.

Employing pressure defense in the second period, the Sea Lions pulled away by 11 points at halftime, 36-25, behind a pair of charities from Kurt Labog.

It was Olivarez College’s fifth straight victory, coming five days after it won over the Trinity of Asia Stallions, who walked out of that game at Ugnayang La Salle gymnasium in DSLU-Dasmariñas.

The Sea Lions, who virtually clinched the top semifinal berth, will aim for a sweep against the National College of Business and Arts today at RTU gymnasium.

Jopet Quiro topscored with 20 points as the RTU Blue Thunder, coached by Johnedel Cardel, scuttled the Manuel L. Quezon University Stallions, 88-60, and earned a semifinal slot with a 4-2 card.

The De La Salle-Dasmariñas Patriots drew 18 points from Kiboy Torres in routing the Philippine Nautical Training College, 91-72, and improving to 3-2.
