UNO-R girls basketeers
 capture 5th straight crown

Clarice Aujero bucked game-long denial defense to score 37 points and lead four-time defending champion University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos to a come-from-behind 57-54 victory over St. Josephs School-La Salle in Saturday’s NOPSSCEA girls basketball final at the West Negros gym.

The 2012 Palarong Pambansa veteran, hounded for most of the game by SJS rookie Jeanybeb Andrada, broke through with 16 fourth-quarter points, sealing her team’s comeback from a 10-point deficit with three minutes remaining.

Providing support for Aujero were her 2012 WVRAA teammates Rizza Cenabre who put in solid play at the point on the way to scoring 13, and Kay Berduque whose rebounding and all-round hustle kept UNO-R in the fray.

Teenager Manassero
 wins Singapore Open

Italian teenager Matteo Manassero holed a 12-foot eagle putt on the third play-off hole to claim a dramatic victory over South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen at the Barclays Singapore Open yesterday.

In his first ever play-off, Manassero showed steel beyond his 19 years as he matched the 2010 British Open winner with birdie and par on the first two extra holes and then nervelessly downed the winner at a packed Sentosa Golf Club.

In denying Oosthuizen, Manassero also clinched this season's European money title for world number one Rory McIlroy, making him only the second man to win the merit race on both sides of the Atlantic in the same year.
