Saints sneak on sweep

/ 12:20 AM January 25, 2014

MANILA, Philippines — St. Clare unleashed the full brunt of its firepower to destroy Philippine School of Business Administration, 91-74, Friday and move to within a win of a clean sweep in the National Capital Region Athletics Association men’s basketball at RTU Gym.

With their starting five all turning in double-digit outputs, the Saints were hardly in trouble in repeating over their first-round victims and posting win No. 11.

The Saints, hoping to qualify to the Philippine Champions League later in the year, will take on La Salle-Dasmariñas on Tuesday in a bid to score a rare 12-game sweep of the eliminations and secure a slot in the finals.

The Jaguars fell to 2-9.

The Jaguars leaned on Aries Dionisio who scored 28 points.
