Baguio City – Top seeded University of the Cordilleras (UC) Jaguars dissipated the Baguio College of Technology (BCT) Atoms, 87-82, in the second game of the Baguio Benguet Educational Athletic League (BBEAL) men’s basketball championship last November 23 at home to take home this year’s crown.
The Jaguars earlier fended off a spirited Atom comeback to take game one, 100-96, last November 21 at the PMA Sports Complex
The Cordillera Career Development College (CCDC) Admirals became the recipient of the bronze without breaking a sweat when most of the players of the University of Baguio (UB) Cardinals cannot play in their battle for third match because they were suspended because of the brouhaha during their semifinals game against the Atoms.
It will be recalled that UB became champions on a silver platter last year when the Admirals decided to forfeit the two championship games for the 2015-16 crown.
In the distaff side, the Lady Cardinals blanked once again the Lady Jaguars to take home this year’s crown. They routed the Jaguars, 81-60, last November 16 at the Saint Louis University Gym in game one of the best of three finals and followed it up with an equally impressive 87-70 thrashing last November 18 at their own gym.
The championship is the second straight for the Lady Cardinals after taking the crown for the Lady Navigators in last year’s edition.
