UC defeats SLU in BBEAL basketball women’s semis
by Ofelia C. Empian

UPSET WIN -- The University of the Cordilleras Jaguars rallied a back-to-back win against defending champions Saint Louis University Navigators in the women’s basketball semifinals of the BBEAL Season 29. The Jaguars will face the University of Baguio lady Cardinals in the finals. -- Ofelia Empian

It’s now a battle between the University of the Cordilleras Jaguars and University of Baguio Cardinals for the championships of the Baguio-Benguet Athletic Education League basketball women as the former emerged as winner from the semis games last week.

The Jaguars tore open the defending champion Saint Louis University Navigators with a lopsided score of 63-52 during last Thursday’s semi-finals round at the winner’s home court.

The match turned out to be a repeat of the earlier game last Feb. 2, which ended with a wide margin of 84-55, despite the Navigators having a twice to beat advantage during the semis and home court advantage.

The Jaguars’ power women drove consistent three-point shots and displayed good hand-eye coordination in the game, while the Navigators lost their sense of direction as they failed to translate into points their continuous attempts at the basket due to miscommunication on the third and final quarters of the game.

The championship games will be an exciting match between the Lady Cardinals and Lady Jaguars as they compete for the ultimate goal of being BBEAL Season 29’s basketball champs set anytime this week, according to Danilo Cong-o, head of the center for sports development of UC.

It will be a best-of-three play for the championship round of the distaff category for the still leading UB (7-0) and currently second place, UC, (8-2).

Meanwhile the SLU Navigators dropped to third place (6-3), Benguet State University Wildcats (4-5) on the fourth, and Pines City Colleges Warriors on fifth place (4-4), Baguio College of Technology Atoms (2-5) on sixth place, University of the Philippines-Baguio Maroons on seventh (1-6), and newbie Kings College of the Philippines Lancers on last place (0-7).
