CEBU CITY, Philippines – The Southwestern University (SWU)-Phinma Cobras defended their Cesafi men’s volleyball title for the third straight time after sweeping their best-of-three finals series against the University of San Carlos (USC) Warriors Saturday, November 23, 2019, at the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) gym.

The Cobras won Game 2, 25-27, 25-17, 25-21, 25-18.
