Dark horse West Negros University scored twin wins over the weekend and closes in on leader Living Heritage Christian Academy in the Toyota Cup "D" League of Basketball Coaches Association of Negros, a press release from BCAN said.
The Junior Mustangs stunned University of Negros Occidental- Recoletos, 86-81, and plastered NOPSSCEA defending champion St. John's Institute, 75-56, to post a 6-1 slate behind LHCA's 6-0. SJI joins St. Benilde School at the bottom with 1-6 record, the press release said.
SBS' lone victory came from an 88-83 upset over Falcons on Saturday as they got clobbered the next day when the Junior Rams bounced back from its loss with WNU and retaliated with a 62-57 win at the expense of Mansilingan-based dribblers.
Still undefeated after six games, LHCA toyed with Trinity Christian School, 89-57, while University of St. La Salle stopped Dona Monserrat High School of Silay City, 64-53, to share the third spot with UNO-R at 3-2, the press release also said.
The Silaynons, mentored by Atoy Tallora, dropped to fourth at 3-3 after an impressive start while TCS struggles at 1-4.
The "Developmental" league, bankrolled by Toyota Bacolod through SBP regional chair Robert Uy, is designed as a pre-NOPSSCEA tournament for member schools and a chance to assess other teams like Silay and LHCA, the press release added.*
