La Salle Greenhills claims SBP title as Adamson bags Passerelle crown in Best Center tournaments

LA Salle Greenhills claimed the Small Basketeers Philippines and Adamson University topped the Passerelle division of the twin basketball tournaments for youth organized by the Best Center and at the Xavier School gym.

Victorino Torres was the only player to score in double figures with 10 points, which were enough to inspire the Greenies over Xavier School, 42-26, in the SBP final.

Adamson overcame Ateneo, 76-63, for the Passerelle trophy.

Gerry Austin Abadiano scored 13 points and Jeffy Mailim had 11 to negate Ateneo shooters Miguel Luigi Santos’ and Sean Dave Ildefonso’s combined 23 points.

Ateneo-A also settled for third place in the SBP with a 51-31 rout of Chiang Kai Shek College.

La Salle Greenhills-A, meanwhile, crushed Nazareth School of National University, 54-31, for third place in the Passerelle Division of the tournament sponsored by Milo.

Meanwhile, Best Center founder and president Nic Jorge announced the last day of enrolment for the basketball clinics at Xavier School will end on September 26.

Courses offered are for preparatory levels 1 and 3. Clinics will be held on Saturdays.
