Update: The Game 1 of the Southern Division Finals Game 1 was moved to Davnor Gym Davao Sports & Tourism Complex in Tagum City.
The defending champion of Group B needed only two games to dispatch the Zamboanga Family’s Brand Sardines last March 5 at the STRIKE Gymnasium.
Unlike in their semis-opener where both squads registered the lowest combined final score, in Game 2 their scorers came out but it was the Davaoeños offensive players went superior.
June Kenneth Mocon led the Tigers in scoring during that said encounter where he made 14 points and teammates Chester Saldua and Emman Calo chipped in with 8 and 6 points respectively.
For the Basilan squad, on the other hand, they were able to survive against the pesky Bacoor Strikers to gain a Southern Division Finals seat last March 7 at the STRIKE Gymnasium.
The Steel used the second quarter to mount their scoring run where they led as much as 10 ten points.
PBA bound and current member of the Gilas Pilipinas cadets delivered 35 points and seven rebounds while teammate Jay Collado had his double-double output with 18 markers and 15 boards.
