UV, UC renew rivalry




CEBU CITY — University of the Visayas (UV) clashes with University of Cebu (UC) in a battle that could be a preview of the finals of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI) men’s basketball tournament Saturday at the Cebu Coliseum here.

Action starts at 5:30 p.m. following the encounter between University of Southern Philippines-Foundation and Cebu Institute of Technology University at 4 p.m.

The Lancers defeated the Webmasters in last year’s best-of-three finals to win their 12th CESAFI title.

With a 3-2 win-loss card, the Lancers, who defeated Southwestern University the other night, are unfazed by the Webmasters, who are seeking revenge from last year’s finals loss.

The rivalry is considered as the hottest in the Queen City as it used to feature June Mar Fajardo and Greg Slaughter, two seven-footers who blossomed into the country’s best slotmen.
