San Beda Alabang battles Emilio Aguinaldo College-Cavite while De La Salle-Lipa goes up against Philippine Christian Universty-Dasmariñas as the 20th season of the NCAA-South men’s basketball competitions open on Wednesday at the PCU-Dasmariñas Gym in Cavite.
San Beda and EAC clash in the men’s division at 8AM, with the women’s and boys’ teams of both schools also batting at 10AM and 12NN, respectively.
De La Salle-Lipa and PCU-Dasmariñas, meanwhile, go up against each other in the men’s division at 6PM, with the women’s and boys’ teams also colliding at 2PM and 4PM, respectively.
The 20th season of the NCAA-South formally opened last October 26 during an opening ceremony at the newly-built PCU-Dasmariñas Gym, where most of the basketball matches will be held.
Eleven schools will see action in this year’s NCAA-South that will be hosted by PCU-Dasmariñas.
“We expect a high level of competition this season. As host school, we will do our best to make the season a successful one,” said NCAA-South Policy Board president Jordan Ramos.
NCAA-South Management Committee chairman Juanito Belandrez said basketball, volleyball, chess, and taekwondo will be played in the first phase, while football, badminton, table tennis, aquatics, futsal, beach volleyball, and tennis will be played in the second phase, with baseball to be played as a demonstration sport.
