Veteran cagers from National University (NU) Bulldogs escaped a tough Colegio de Sta. Ana de Victorias (CSAV), 93-89, in the 3rd Mayor Neil Lizares’ Basketball Exhibition at the Talisay City Gym in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, Feb. 9.
The game was a neck and neck affair in the first three quarters but NU banked on Issa Gaye and brothers Shaun Danielle and Sean Dave Ildefonso in snatching the win.
John Lloyd Clemente and Jonas Tibayan also helped NU repel CSAV players Junior Essakadoualla, Carl Magbanua, and Jeffrey Manday who all suffered cramps.
Before the exhibition game, NU mentor Michael Jay Jarin hosted a free coaching clinic for Talisay City head coaches.
The event is part of the city’s celebration of the Pasidungog Festival.
