The West Negros University Jr. Mustangs and the Bacolod Tay Tung High School Thunderbols will face each other at 10 a. m. today to dispute the provincial championship of the 2nd Coca-Cola Jr. PBA Youngstars Bacolod leg at the WNU Gym.

In a press release, SBP provincial director Anthony Carlo Agustin said the Thunderbolts will be out to avenge their heartbreaking 70-68 loss against the Jr. Mustangs in the eliminations, while the WNU team is coming off its rousing semifinal victory against the NOPSSCEA junior basketball champion St. John’s Institute Falcons, 88-72.

In taming the Falcons, the young Mustangs established a 26-15 first quarter lead and focused their defense on SJI’s scorers for a 42-28 halftime lead.

Mayweather dumps
Guerrero to keep title

World Boxing Council champion Floyd Mayweather extended his perfect record to 44 victories yesterday (Phil. time), beating Robert Guerrero by unanimous decision in their welterweight title fight.

Mayweather, who was defending his title for the first time since serving a jail term for domestic violence, dominated a bloodied Guerrero for most of the fight at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

All three judges scored the 12-round fight 117-111 in favor of Mayweather.

Bulls into the 2nd round,
Thunder beats Rockets

Joakim Noah scored 24 points and grabbed 14 rebounds yesterday to lead the injury-ravaged Chicago Bulls to a 99-93 victory over the Brooklyn Nets and into the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Facing a do-or-die seventh game, Noah asserted himself in every facet of the contest connecting on 12-of-17 shots from the field and also blocking six shots.

The victory in the best-of-seven Eastern Conference first-round series earned the Bulls a second-round clash with reigning NBA champions Miami.
