CHIANG Kai Shek College and National University scored big wins to advance to the semifinal round of the 6th PSSBC Dickies Underwear Cup at the SGS Stadium in Quezon City.
The Blue Dragons, who finished second behind the NU Bullpups in the preliminary round, stunned reigning NCAA titlist La Salle-Greenhills, 77-53.
The Bullpups, on the other hand, outclassed the San Sebastian Staglets, 104-72, with Terrence Fortea and Winderlich Coyoca leading their bench mob which combined for 36 points.
“We know how potent our team can be when everyone gives their contribution on both ends,” said NU tactician Goldwyn Monteverde.
Jason Celis came off the bench to score a team-high 20 points while John Galinato added 19, spiked by three triples, in the tournament sponsored by Hapee Toothpaste, Blackwater, Freego Jeans, Poly Gloss/Rain or Shine, Che Lu Bar & Grill’s and MEC Computers.
