·1 min read

SIV outlasted the DMY Events, 74-69, to capture the West championship in the Hoop Nation basketball tournament last Sunday at the City Sports Club-Cebu in the Cebu Business Park.

It was a tightly-fought match all throughout the game but in the end, SIV had enough firepower and composure to pull off the victory.

Former Southwestern University Cobras big man Jezreel Padilla had a monster ballgame as he scored 32 points on 12-of-20 shooting and hauled down a whopping 25 rebounds to power his team to the victory.

Jeff Gudes had 33 points and nine boards for DMY Events.

SIV will next face the East titlists, Trojan Warriors, for the Hoop Nation crown.
