The University of San Carlos (USC) Baby Warriors and the Don Bosco Technical College Inc. Greywolves barged into the semifinals by the skin of their teeth as they essayed close victories during the last day of eliminations in the CloudFone Batang PBA Cebu leg yesterday at the Cebu City Sports Institute.
