The younger University of the Visayas Green Lancers just proved that age does matter in basketball game as the 9-time Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI) champion used their quickness to clobber the Dalaguete Inter-Town Basketball Tournament champion Oslob Team, 84-69, last night, February 2, 2012, in front of a sold-out crowd of the Dalaguete Sports and Cultural Complex.
The UV Family, in cooperation with the Municipal Government of Dalaguete hosted the basketball exhibition night that also featured the match between UV-Main Faculty and UV-Dalaguete students in the preliminary game. UV Main was led by their College Basketball Team head coach, ex-PBA player Felix Belano, a former teammate of Aldrin Barola of the defunct Metropolitan Basketball Association (MBA).
The Green Lancers used their quickness in executing pressure defense forcing Oslob to commit turnovers. Oslob was reinforced by three former CESAFI star players, former CESAFI MVP Enrico Llanto, ex-CESAFI Rookie of the Year Michael Luga, and former SWU Cobras ace player Eric Zanoria.
Also prior to the main game was a dance number of selected students of UV-Dalaguete and at halftime, a cheer dance presentation was being shown by some Education students of the same school.
