Stags vs Lions sa NCAA Finals
IT will take extra efforts on the part of San Sebastian Stags to coup up with San Beda Red Lions whose lineup is composed of tall players and deep bench.
This was the assessment of coach Ato Agustin, in his farewell games with the San Beda College in the NCAA men’s basketball finals starting today.
The defending champions stags will have to offset the 0-1 deficit against San Beda coached Franky Lim advantage in the best of 5 title series. San beda has the edge considering their 16 game swift in the double round elimination and their mental advantage having trounced stags twice in the elimination.
The Stags must win Game 1 to square the series while the red Lions need to win twice to clinch its 15 crowns.
As planned, the Recoletos team will lean on leading MVP contender Calvin Abueva, Pamboy Raymundo and Ronald Pascual for their offensive thrust while the Red Lions will turn to American center Sudan Daniel to lead the Mendiola basketeers and the support of PBA-bound Borgy Hermida to provide the necessary points.
