Red Cubs face Blue Dragons in PSSBC final

/ 05:03 AM December 22, 2017

San Beda and Chiang Kai Shek College posted contrasting semifinal victories on Wednesday to forge a final showdown in the 6th PSSBC Dickies Underwear Cup held at SGS Stadium in Araneta Avenue in Quezon City.

The Red Cubs edged the National University Bullpups, 78-76, while the Blue Dragons routed the University of Visayas Baby Lancers, 91-60.

“Our guys have been in that situation before and I’m just pleased that they were able to do what they’re supposed to be: Stay steady and composed,” said San Beda coach JB Sison.


San Beda stayed on track to regain the crown it last hoisted in 2014 in the tournament supported by Hapee Toothpaste, Blackwater, Freego Jeans, Poly Gloss, Rain or Shine, Che Lu Bar & Grill and MEC Computers.


The Blue Dragons, the 2015 titlists, leaned on John Galinato and Jason Celis to pull away early, 36-16, and never gave the Baby Lancers the chance to mount a rally.

At stake in the winner-take-all final are P50,000 in cash and a trophy.

The Red Cubs drew 15 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds from Evan Nelle.
