CEBU CITY, Philippines — The reigning Cesafi champions University of the Visayas Green Lancers and perennial powerhouse University of Cebu Webmasters are actively looking for new talent and will be staging tryouts on April 9 and 10, 2019.

UV — the Cesafi’s most successful collegiate squad with 13 championships to its name — will have tryouts from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Talisay City Sports Complex. Those who need transportation to go to Talisay City will need to be at the UV gym at 4 p.m.

The UC Webmasters of interim head coach Rafael “Rocky” Alcoseba, on the other hand, will have their tryouts at 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. over at their home floor, the Cebu Coliseum.

Scholarships and other student-athlete benefits are at stake in the tryouts that are being conducted by both schools.

UV is seeking a fourth straight championship but will have to do it without erstwhile Cesafi MVP, Rey Suerte, who is now playing for Che’Lu in the PBA D-League.

UC, meanwhile, is looking to put an end to a near-decade championship drought in the collegiate division. The last time the Webmasters hoisted a title was in 2010 when reigning PBA MVP June Mar Fajardo still manned the shaded lane for the blue and yellow./dbs
