THE University of the Visayas Baby Lancers nabbed the championship in the Small Basketeers of the Philippines (SBP) division of the 34th SBP Passerelle Twin Tournament backed by Milo Visayas Regional Finals after they tripped the St. John’s Institute in a finals thriller, 40-35, at the Pototan Astrodome in Iloilo City on Sunday afternoon, November 10, 2019.

With the game tied at 35-all, Neil John Bernante rose to the occasion and made a three-pointer with just four seconds to go to push UV in front for good, en route to capturing the title.

The title win gave UV the opportunity to compete in the national finals set on November 23 and 24 in Roxas City.

Meanwhile, Cebu could not complete a sweep of the championships as the SHS-Ateneo de Cebu faltered against Hercor College, 68-88, in the finals.
