TWO La Salle teams battle for a possible Small Basketeers Philippines final match against a squad from Ateneo, while it’s still a tossup in the Passerelle Division in the Best Center SBP-Passerelle tournament on Sunday at the Xavier School gym.
La Salle Greenhills-A, a 45-36 winner over Marist School-A over the weekend, battle La Salle-Zobel A, a 53-50 victor over Don Bosco Technical Institute Makati, at 1 p.m. for the finals berth.
Only Notre Dame of Greater Manila, a 52-43 winner over host Xavier School, stand in the way of an awaited La Salle vs. Ateneo final.
University of Santo Tomas, meanwhile, halted La Salle Zobel-A's run, 72-59, and will face host Xavier School, which walked over Notre Dame of Greater Manila, for the first finals berth in the Passerelle Division.
Chiang Kai Shek College also denied La Salle Greenhills-B, 77-69, and will dispute the second final slot with LSGH-A, which survived San Beda College-Rizal A, 83-82.
The championship games of the event organized by BEST and presented by Milo will be held Sept. 16 at the Ateneo Blue Eagle gym.
