For all the marbles, the four best Under-21 remaining teams will finally clash to move closer to their 2022 Chairman’s Cup championship title goal.

After a hard-fought semifinals stage, the Chairman’s Cup bracket finals picture is now all set with team Elite Lab looking to maintain their perfect record against the tough ATOP team in bracket A while the surging team Conce Crita Villa going up against team Hustle.

Team Elite Lab was the first to claim a bracket finals ticket after dismantling Pototan, 80-34, during the bracket A semifinals.

As usual, coach John Guanco and his boys showed no mercy and ran their motion offense to perfection while locking down Pototan in four grueling quarters.

The second bracket finals participants were the Conce Crita Villa when they survived the hot-shooting of the Phantom Elite Roxas squad, 73-62.

It was Roxas who took the early lead as they just couldn’t miss from downtown but Kimrey Servano and Agapito Clarito of Conce Crita took matters into their own hands and man-handled the Phantom Elite defense to seal their win.

ATOP’s bracket finals seat came after their mastery over the Guimaras Leopards Jr., 70-54, with Mayor Jerry P. Treñas New Normal basketball hoops champion from team Uniwheels Raffy Arguelles leading the pack.

The tall and crafty scorer dominated the Guimaras defense and dropped 20 points off a high percentage shooting from the perimeter.

Last but not the least, head coach Florence Conlu and team Hustle finally regained their form after a slow start in the tournament and crushed the Tigbauan Ninja Gladiators, 80-58, to claim the final bracket finals seat.

The games will be held in the Western Institute of Technology (WIT) new site basketball gym while the grand finals tomorrow will take place in the University of San Agustin.
