St. Francis battles EAC-Cavite cagers

Game Tomorrow (Colegio de San Lorenzo gym)
12 noon – St. Francis vs EAC-Cavite

Saint Francis of Assisi College hopes to clinch a finals berth in the juniors division of the National Capital Region Universities and Colleges of Luzon Athletic Association (NCRUCLAA) Basketball Tournament when it faces Emilio Aguinaldo College-Cavite in their knock out match tomorrow at the Colegio de San Lorenzo gym in Quezon City.

Drawing inspired games from Jom Gay, Jomar Ignacio, Michael David and Carlos Ysmael, St. Francis stunned twice-to-beat EAC, 77-72, last week.

But for the Baby Doves to advance to the finals, coach Christopher Villamayor said they have to shoot consistently well from the outside and come out with a better defensive transition.

“We have to double our effort if we are to play in the championship,” said Villamayor, who is being assisted by former Philippine team member Al Vergara.

More importantly, Villamayor said they have to check EAC’s deadly one on one penetration and post scoring.

“Our adjustments will be minor but we have to be extra careful in executing our offense,” added Villamayor, who is also pinning his hopes on Jim Santos.
