    CEBU CITY — Cebu Institute of Technology-University once again rode the hot shooting of the league’s leading scorer Joshua de la Cerna for their second win, routing University of Southern Philippines Foundation, 85-62, in the 15th Cesafi men’s basketball tournament on Saturday at the Cebu Coliseum.

    De la Cerna scored 23 points, nine coming in a 13-2 blast at the start of the third that gave the Wildcats the cushion they needed to get their second win in six tries. The Panthers remained winless in five games.

    USPF started out strong and held a 21-16 lead early in the second, when CIT-U found their groove with a 19-2 run, half of which was scored by De la Cerna, that helped them get a 35-27 halftime lead.

    After the Panthers trimmed the lead down to six, De la Cerna took over once again to raise the lead to double-digits.

    In the juniors division, the University of Cebu Baby Webmasters clobbered the Don Bosco Greywolves, 96-51, to improve their record to 4-2 while handing the latter their sixth straight loss. Froiland Mangubat led the way with 23 points while Jelmart Umpad added a complete statline of 12 pts, five rebounds, four assists and eight steals.
