CEBU’S own Phoenix Fuel Life-University of Cebu (UC) Webmasters and Mair Construction/Southwestern University (SWU)-Phinma Cobras will be among the contenders in the 8th Mayor Kim Lope A. Asis Invitational Basketball Tournament on June 26 to 29 at the Lope Asis Memorial Gymnasium in Bayugan City, Agusan del Sur.

The teams will be using this tournament as part of their preparations for the upcoming Cesafi men’s basketball wars which start this August. The tournament is held in line with Bayugan City’s 11th Charter Day celebration held every June 21 and the Bayug Festival held from June 21 to 30.

“For the past eight years, it has been customary for us to treat our constituents with a very exciting and highly entertaining basketball action to make our Charter Day and Bayug Festival celebration more memorable and meaningful,” said Bayugan Mayor Kim Lope Asis in a statement. “We take pride for this being the biggest sporting event not only in our province but perhaps the entire Mindanao region.”

Aside from Cebu’s representatives, other contenders in this tournament that offers over half a million pesos in cash prizes are the Vincare Pharma-University of Santo Tomas (UST) Growling Tigers, Madyaw Construction-National University (NU) Bulldogs, ARQ Builders-Lyceum Polytechnic University (LPU) Pirates of Manila, and Greene Builders/Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan Crusaders.

The champion will take home P200,000 while the second placer will pocket P150,000. Third to fifth placers will receive P100,000, P75,000, and P50,000, respectively.
According to the tournament organizer Van Halen Parmis, the champions last year, the University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers, will not be joining this edition of the tournament since Mayor Asis opted to invite new teams to give others a chance.
