AFTER a year on the shelf, the Cesafi Partner’s Cup returns for its eighth season with a triple-header on May 21 at the Cebu Coliseum.

The development is a welcome respite for Cebu’s collegiate basketball teams, most of which have been left in the cold with little to no basketball action during the summer season—a stark contrast to Manila-based squads who have been playing in several leagues simultaneously since April.

All seven schools have given the green light on their participation led by reigning Cesafi champion University of San Carlos (USC), which is partnering with Cebu Landmasters.

Also on tap are Worthy-University of the Visayas (UV), Tyron Properties-University of Southern Philippines-Foundation (USP-F), Highlands Corned Beef-University of Cebu (UC), Mighty Sports-University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R), My LED Opto-Cebu Institute of Technology-University (CIT-U) and the M. Lhuillier-Southwestern University.

The teams will play a single round-robin with the top four squads advancing to the semifinal round, which will again be a single round-robin amongst the qualified squads. The top two teams will compete in a best-of-three series for the championship while the third and fourth placers will dispute the third place trophy in a knockout match.

Ground rules and regulations for the upcoming 2016 season are to be implemented for this tournament.
