The NU Bullpups aren't done winning just yet
Nazareth School of National University has won two titles in six days.
Reclaiming the crown in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament just a week ago, the Bullpups then extended their rule to all of the National Capital Region last Thursday.
Downing La Salle Green Hills, 73-59, the UAAP champions claimed the championship in the NCR Meet and with that, clinched a place in the 2019 Palarong Pambansa.
Just like they did in the UAAP, NU got timely contributions from team captain Gerry Abadiano and scoring dynamo Terrence Fortea as well as talented tower Aaron Buensalida. All three proceeded to be named into the Mythical Team alongside Greenies Jacob Cortez and Francis Lopez.
The Bullpups will travel to Davao in April to represent NCR in the national meet.
Before that, they are also poised to protect their throne in the 2019 National Basketball Training Centre National Finals in March.
