NOPSSCEA men's basketball
kicks off today at WNU Gym

Defending champion West Negros University Mustangs start their bid for a 15 th straight NOPSSCEA men's basketball championship against Colegio San Agustin Bacolod Eagles today as competition starts at the WNU Gym.

The Mustangs-Eagles match-up is scheduled at 3:30 p.m. after the 2 p.m. game between last year's runner-up University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos and the resurging University of St. La Salle Stingers.

Spicing up things in this year's edition of collegiate basketball is the re-entry of the Visayan Maritime Academy-Global, whose lineup of players are out to give the top four teams a good fight.

Reports from NOPSSCEA insiders said this year's format will be a double-round robin among the five teams with all the games in the elimination round to be played at the WNU Gym and a home-and-away format in the semifinals.

The NOPSSCEA champion will have the privilege of representing the league in the regional qualifier of the PRISAA and the Philippine Collegiate Championship League.

Meanwhile, the 2013 NOPSSCEA games will officially open on September 13 at the USLS Coliseum after a motorcade from the SM South Wing going to the USLS. *NAB
