Caspe, Yemeli link up as UB contains Olivarez, force KO match

University of Batangas stunned Olivarez College, 89-80, and forged a rubber match in their semis series in the PG Flex Linoleum-Universities and Colleges Basketball League, Monday at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.

JJ Caspe and Raoul Yemeli struck hard early for the Brahmans, who repelled repeated comebacks from the second-seeded Sea Lions to prevail.

The knockout game is set on Monday, with the winner earning the right to face top seed and defending champion Diliman College in the finals in a best-of-three affair.

The Diliman Blue Dragons got a huge lift from Robbi Darang to beat the fourth-ranked Centro Escolar University Scorpions, 64-63.

Yemeli and Caspe finished with similar 16 points. They also provided the intangibles that helped them beat the Sea Lions for the first time in three games this season.

Don Tabol and Mart De Ramos also stepped up for UB with 11 points apiece.

Matches are aired on Solar Sports on delayed basis.
