Olivarez, San Lorenzo tangle » Manila Bulletin Sports



By Jerome Lagunzad

Colegio de San Lorenzo guns for a share of the lead while Olivarez College tries to bounce back when they square off today in Universities and Colleges Basketball League (UCBL) Season 2 in Sucat, Parañaque City.

The Griffins (10-1), fresh from a nine-day break, try to extend their winning streak to five and tie idle defending champion Centro Escolar University (11-1) atop the eight-team field in their 12 noon encounter with the Sea Lions who enjoy a familiar home court advantage.

Olivarez College, running at third with an 8-4 record, is eager to bounce back from a 67-64 loss to CEU over the weekend that put an end to its six-game winning streak – the longest win-run this season.

“It’s a wake-up call for us that we’re still far from where we want to be,” said Sea Lions coach Mike Saguiguit.

Olivarez College dropped an 86-72 decision to CdSL in their previous meeting last Sept. 11.

Meanwhile, struggling Diliman College (7-5) is favored to repeat over eliminated University of Batangas (1-11) at 2 p.m.

The Blue Dragons, losers of their last four matches, are eager to restore their shattered confidence against the Brahmans whom they handily beat 75-60 nearly two months ago.
