Jaime A. Frias II

SAINT Ignatius de Loyola defending champion Xavier University High School (XUHS) 2006 guns for third-straight win Saturday, July 15, opposite Batch 2005 in the 8th XUHS-ABA Basketball Tournament at XUHS covered courts in uptown Pueblo de Oro, Cagayan de Oro City.

Alumni 2006 had a blazing start and is determined to sustain the momentum against XUHS 2005 which has a 1-1 win-loss card.

This, as sentimental favorite Xavier University will rely again on the threesome of Charome Marte, Erwin Raagas, and Noknok San Jose in their keenly-awaited tiff with five-time XUHS-ABA champion Batch 1999.

St. Faber Cup defending titlist XUHS 2000 (2-1) will face the winless Batch 2003 as Batches 1997 and 2003 go to each other’s throat in the battle of still winless teams in the exciting ABA hoopfest.
