season opens today

It’s all systems go for the 32nd Negros Occidental Private Schools. Sports, Cultural, and Educational Association season as the meet opens this afternoon, 2 p.m. at the Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod Gym in Bacolod City.

NOPSSCEA Sports Task Force chairman Anthony Carlo Agustin said this year’s season will be ushered by a motorcade around the city, followed by a simple program at the CSA-B Gym.

All 61-member schools are expected to send their representatives to the opening ceremonies with basketball player and celebrity Chris Tiu as guest speaker. Tiu was recently drafted into the Philippine Basketball Association and will play for the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.

Eleven Degrees upsets Ceres team;
Petron routs Raga in SJI basketball

Eleven Degrees 96/97/98 pulled out a huge victory over defending champ Ceres Pasalubong, 71-65, and Petron 2001/02/12 improved its quarterfinal with a lopsided 79-53 win against Raga Raga 2003/04/05 in the 5th SJI Alumni Basketball Friendship Cup at the Msgr. John Liu Activity Center, Tuesday night.

Allowing Ceres a three-point lead in the first quarter, 18-15, Eleven Degrees bounced back in the second canto for a halftime 34-32 lead en route to a victory that stopped Ceres Pasalubong’s winning streak after two undefeated championship season and five straight games in the current tournament.

Filipino Angelo Que carded a flawless seven-under-par 65 that surprised even himself as he took the opening-round lead at the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship yesterday.

The three-time Asian Tour winner marked his card with seven birdies to take a single-shot lead over India's Gaganjeet Bhullar and American Jason Knutzon, who had the honor of recording the event's first hole-in-one.
