In the college division, the USC Warriors will lock horns with the University of the Philippines (UP) Cebu Fighting Maroons at 6:45 p.m.

The Dragons need the win Tuesday’s game in order for them to solely grab the No. 4 spot over the University of Cebu (UC) Baby Webmasters as both teams currently have five wins and three defeats.

The Cesafi high school defending champions, the Sacred Heart School-Ateneo de Cebu (SHS-AdC) Magis Eagles and the University of Cebu Lapu-Lapu Mandaue (UCLM) Webmasters share the top spot with a 7-1 record. 

CEC has two games left after tomorrow’s showdown against the Baby Jaguars. They will try to upset the Magis Eagles on Saturday, November 18, and their last remaining game is against the Baby Webmasters on November 23. 

Last Sunday, the Dragons defeated the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Baby Panthers, 77-68. 

Meanwhile, the Baby Jaguars are also fresh from beating the CIT-U Wildkittens, 69-44, last Saturday.

The Baby Jaguars also have two more games left in the elimination round after their Tuesday meeting with CEC. Their next game is on November 18 against UV, followed by their November 26 date with the UCLM Webmasters.
