CEBU, Philippines — The 2011 Sharks, ‘88 Barakos, Ronins ‘97 and the 2002 Goats got off to rousing starts in the University of San Carlos-North Alumni Basketball Conference 2019 Cebu City Mayor’s Cup last Sunday at the USC North Campus gym.

Prince Malana dished out 16 points laced with three rebounds and one steal to power the Sharks to an 82-62 obliteration of the 2008 Flyboys.

Jake Saturinas showed the way for the Ronins with 20 points, five rebounds, three steals and one assist, while Joel Dinawanao spearheaded the Goats’ charge with 14 points, six rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block.

Meanwhilem, the grand opening ceremony of the annual league was garced by Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella, Philippine Sports Commissioner Ramon Fernandez and former PBA star now city councilor Dondon Hontiveros.

Also present were the members of the 2019 NABC core group led by USC-NABC President Ernest Evangelista and USC-North Alumni Association president Ryan Villaflores.

All games are under the supervision of Jax Bautista, the league organizer and commissioner. (FREEMAN)
