TIP ends UCBL campaign in style
(The Philippine Star) - October 22, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Technological Institute of the Philippines capped its campaign with a stunning 108-85 win over defending champion and erstwhile unbeaten Diliman College in the PG Flex Linoleum-Universities and Colleges Basketball League yesterday at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.

The Engineers banked heavily on the game-long brilliance of Papa Ndiaye, Christian Daguro and Warren Calara in snapping Diliman’s impressive nine-game winning run in the eight-team tournament now on its fourth season.

Ndiaye exploded for 33 points on an 11-of-19 shooting apart from hauling down 17 rebounds and dishing off six assists as TIP finished with a 3-7 record.

Though already out of Final Four picture, the Engineers surprised almost everybody by playing with a lot of pride this time.

Despite the loss, Diliman still finished at No. 1.
