The University’s Boys’ Basketball Team continued their pre-season build up for UAAP 86, this time capping second place in the United Basketball League 19-under division, after a 65-71 defeat against University of Perpetual Help, August 28 at the Systems Plus Computer College Gym. 

It was a tight affair, with the two teams exchanging leads, but eventual Finals MVP Icee Callangan led his team with 16 points. 

A silver lining for the boys from San Marcelino is the inclusion of key gunners Carlo Bonzalida and Mark Esperanza to the league’s Mythical 5. 

With last year’s team almost intact, along with fresh talents, the Baby Falcons are expected to parade another excellent run come the start of their UAAP campaign.
