ST. JUDE CATHOLIC SCHOOL 67 ? UNO HIGH SCHOOL
Notes: And then there were six teams left. St.
Jude Catholic School scored a hard-earned 67-53 victory over Uno
HS to reach the semifinals against No. 1 seed Hope Christian HS
The first half was sloppily played offensively. SJCS took the first
quarter, 8-7, for the lowest combined first-quarter score (15 points)
this season. The first half ended at 26-23, in the Judenites? favor.
Jason Ligad had a dozen points for SJCS. The combined 49 points
were the third lowest first-half score this season. Hope Christian
HS (32) and Grace Christian College (13) combined for 45 first-half
points in their elims game. Uno HS (32) and SSHS (15) combined for
47 points in the first half of their elims game ?
Uno High School, looking for an upset, bolted for a 37-34 lead behind
Philipp Licaros? twinner, the Uneans? largest lead in the game.
However, coach Milton Yu?s troops were mesmerized by the sudden
full-court pressure employed by St. Jude CS, which detonated a 19-5
bomb, including an 8-0 blast (from 34-37 to 42-37) at one point,
to take a 53-42 advantage at the end of the third quarter ?
Uno?s Ryan Lim opened the fourth quarter with a basket to trim his
team?s deficit to just nine points, 53-44. It turned out to be the
closest the Uneans were within of SJCS, which led by as much as
16 points in the final minutes (63-47 and 67-51) ?
Ligard topscored for SJCS with 26 points (on 10-for-29 FG shooting)
and collected six points, three assists and two steals in 28 minutes.
Sophomore center Francis Go contributed 13 markers and 15 boards
for a double-double. Joel Chang, who took six of the Judenites?
first nine attempts in the game and connected on of them ? a three-pointer
? to give his team a 3-0 lead, wound up with 13 points and seven
Licaros, playing in his final Tiong Lian game, led Uno HS with 16
points. Charles Chong added 11 points and Lim contributed six scores
and 12 reebies for the losing team.
CHIANG KAI SHEK COLLEGE 70 ? ST. STEPHEN?S
HIGH SCHOOL 50
Notes: And then there were five teams left. No.
3 seed Chiang Kai Shek College frolicked from start to finish in
crusing to an easy 70-50 victory over No. 6 seed St. Stephen?s HS
In the semis, the Blue Dragons will take on the winner of the quarterfinal
series between No. 2 and four-time defending champion Xavier School
and No. 7 seed and winless Grace Christian College, which will be
played on Friday (Feb. 10). The Golden Stallions need just a win
against the host school to arrange a semifinal showdown with CKSC.
XS, too, will have a twice-to-beat advantage over CKSC if it survives
past GCC ?
CKSC got off to a quick start vs. SSHS, scoring the game?s first
seven points and taking the first quarter, 18-9. CKSC took the first
half, 40-16, as it limited SSHS to the third-lowest first-half score
by one team this season. Grace Christian College scored only 13
first-half points in its elims encounter with Hope Christian HS.
SSHS tallied a measly 15 points in the first half of a 57-45 loss
to Uno HS during the elims ?
The Blue Dragons were up, 62-34, after three quarters and were ahead
by at least 20 points throughout the second half. Their biggest
lead was 31 points, 65-34 ?
As if it were any consolation, SSHS outscored CKSC, 16-8, in the
final 10 minutes as Blue Dragons coach Goldwin Monteverde opted
to rest his regulars ?
Carlo Young, who scored the game?s first five points, finished with
12 points to lead CKSC. John Kevin Baytan had a double-double with
10 points and 11 rebounds and John Nieles and Kimlee Bayquin each
scored nine for the winners. Nieles also had five boards, seven
assists and three steals for the 14-time TL Juniors titlists ?
Pint-sized but gutsy Kevin Ng notched a team-best 19 points for
the SSHS, which also got 10 markers and six reebies from Matthan
Yu. Ralph Tan grabbed 10 rebounds and Adrian Te had nine boards
for the Stephenians.
