    UNIVERSITY of San Carlos advanced to the next stage in the stepladder phase of the Southern Islands Championships in the 2013 National Collegiate Championship with an 82-73 victory over Iloilo Doctor’s College Monday at the Cebu Coliseum.

    Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. three-point champion Miguel Plata scored 12 of his 27 points in the fourth period, including 10 straight points in a 16-2 blast that put the game away.

    USC set up a match against Cesafi runner-up and the reigning Southern Islands champion Southwestern University.

    High-leaping import, Ahmed Salihou, also put up 19 points on top of his impressive rim defense that saw him swat away seven shots.

    The Doctors stayed within striking distance, 54-56, heading to the final frame, but the Warriors suddenly caught fire as Plata came up with 10 unanswered points spiked by two three-pointers.

    Guard Kiefer Lim added a lay-up off an alley-oop pass from Nico Magat, while Salihou tipped in a miss that gave USC a 77-61 lead with 4:05 left.

    Carcillar paced the Doctors with 16 points while Gerry Abadiano and Sugide each had 10.

    In the first game, Holy Trinity won the Mindanao championship, beating STI College, 98-94, behind the 34-point explosion of Criss Masaglang.
