The University of San Agustin Sambag gym had to take a few extra minutes to recover from an astonishing finals game between the De La Salle College of St. Benilde who upset favorite Enderun college, 64-58.
Enderun controlled the pace of the game early on as their half-court sets provided them consistent scoring underneath.
Ball movement was the key to Enderun’s flawless execution in the first half as their free-flowing offense kept CSB’s defense guessing.
Minutes before the end of the second canto, CSB made crucial adjustments that proved to be the turn-around of the game.
CSB started to deploy their small lineup rotation, turning to their quick guards to easily break Enderun’s press while also providing some outside shooting.
As the second half started, CSB’s lineup began to click resulting in easy points off coast to coast layups and stop and pop threes.
Enderun’s momentum began to vanish and was completely run over by CSB, as they kept on the gas pedal and continued their relentless attack on Enderun that gave them the championship.
