FIRESTOP-Starmobile made history in the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Manila Basketball League by completing a nine-game sweep of the elimination round.
Despite their dominating show in the elims, Firestop-Starmobile officials, led by JJ Dequito, Uly Lao and Lex Chua, challenged their players to stay hot and focused to attain their goal.
“I'm very happy that we're able to sweep the elimination round because it is something that hasn't been done in recent years,” said Dequito. “But the season isn't over yet, still the ultimate goal is to win the championship so we have to work even harder.”
For topping the elims, Firestop-Starmobile secured a twice-to-beat advantage in the playoffs.
Members of the record-setting team mentored by Lester del Rosario are Carmelo Navarro, JR Ng, Jeff Ang, Dr. Rich Pasion, Steve Siy, Dr. Dino Vargas, Atty. Jop Esquivias, JP Cruz, Dick Escalona, Don Coeli, Carlo Villegas, Judd Reyes, Aaron Sy, Chris So, Ervinne Que, Earl Yu and Randy Manaloto.
