Nueva Ecija inter-collegiate basketball league now in Quarterfinals

by Camille Nagano

CABANATUAN CITY, Nueva Ecija, January 7 (PIA) -- Six teams from known universities in this province are now fighting for slots at the Nueva Ecija Collegiate Basketball League (NECBL) Semi-finals.

Teams that made it to the Quarterfinals are Wesleyan Knights, CIC (College of Immaculate Concepcion) Kings, NEUST (Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology) Phoenix, CLSU (Central Luzon State University) Green Cobras and GSC (Good Samaritan College) Crusaders.

Knights lorded over Crusaders Thursday afternoon, with the score of 99-95 during the first game held at the Araullo University Gym, this city.

Then, the Green Cobras knocked down Kings at the second game, with 92-89 score, while Phoenixes defeated the Titans at 98-67.

The NECBL is a sports program of the Provincial Government of Nueva Ecija.

Being youth-focused, the program aims to encourage young people to get into sports and veer away from illegal drugs, alcohol, smoking and other destructive vices and activities.

The Araullo Gym, a site where the Nueva Ecija Patriots saw action years ago at the Metropolitan Basketball Games (MBC), will be hosting NECBL up to its final round. (WLB/CN PIA-3)
