Davao City – After the intense game during the Davao City championship, Holy Child College of Davao Red Eagles was back and dethroned St Mary’s College of Tagum Hawks to rightfully claim the National Basketball Training Center (NBTC) League Regional Finals championship crown, February 23, 2020.
Holy Child College of Davao was determined to get this year’s title after last year’s excruciating one hour break from eliminations to finals stint of the NBTC organizers that cost a championship over the Hawks.
Proving that it’s our rightful prey to catch, this year, the determined Red Eagles did not give the Hawks a chance to retaliate after back to back attacks. Overwhelmed by the well-choreographed play of the red eagles, the hawks fell short easily.
Aljay Alloso swooped an easy 33 points including 5 triples and 3 back to backs. Marvin Samonte exploded with several alley-oops to contributing 16 points to the team and several unchallenged rebounds. Reginald Ching, a drafted player from Jose Maria College, also torched 11 points. Red Eagles won the Regionals, 110-76. They will be representing Region XI to the NBTC National Finals in SM-Mall Of Asia Arena.
