    San Lorenzo Griffins rip TIP Engineers to secure twice-to-beat advantage in UCBL semis

    Oct 29, 2017

    COLEGIO de San Lorenzo secured a twice-to-beat advantage while paving the way for idle Diliman College to gain the semifinals of the Universities and Colleges Basketball League Season 2 on Saturday at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.

    The Griffins took the semis incentive with a 76-60 drubbing of the Technological Institute of the Philippines Engineers, with another solid all-around performance of Soulemane Chabi Yo.

    The 6-foot-7 Yo, from the West African nation Benin, produced 19 points, 15 rebounds, five assists, there blocks and two steals while John Formento tallied 19 points off the bench as CdSL got off to another roaring start.

    The win was CdSL’s fifth straight and 10th overall to tie idle and defending champion Centro Escolar University for the lead at 10-1.

    Their win dashed TIP’s semis hope as it fell to 3-8.

    With a 7-5 record, the Diliman Blue Dragons are all but assured of a semis berth. The other early semifinalist is Olivarez College with an 8-3 mark.

    Jorey Napoles had a team-high 18 points while Tevita Latu collected 13 points, 11 rebounds and five assists but the Engineers still failed to recover from a sluggish start, trailing by as many as 31 points.

    Reigning league MVP Dominck Fajardo exploded just at the right time as Bulacan State University repeated over University of Batangas, 82-71, in a no-bearing encounter.

    The Gold Gears notched their second win in nine games.
