NCAA93: San Sebastian d. Arellano, 65-56

NCAA Season 93    MANILA – The 93rd National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) officially launched its NCAA On Tour with visiting San Sebastian College shaming Arellano University, 65-56, at the packed Arellano University Gym Thursday afternoon (July 13).  Team captain Michael Calisaan scored eight points in th 24-8 opening periods as the Stags led all the way from the opening buzzer.

Egged on by the partisan crowd, the Chiefs fought back to threaten through Kent Salado and Michael Canete but the visitors always had a ready answer.  The next NCAA On Tour games will be a week from now on July 20 when Mapua University hosts University of Perpetual Help System-Dalta.

Calisaan went on to top the Stags with 12 points and 13 rebounds as the game turned defense-oriented in the second half.  Ally Bulanadi and JM Calma followed with 10 points each.

Salado led the Braves with 15 points but lacked offense support from his teammates, especially his fellow starters as they were outscored 29 to 37.  Brylle Meca came off the bench to chip in eight points.

Earlier in the day, the Arellano Braves gave the home fans something to cheer about as they defeated the San Sebastian Staglets in Juniors Division play, 86-80.  Kobe Camacho and Fred Segura starred for the winners with 23 and 20 markers respectively while big boy Aaron Fermin had a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds.
