Ismael Pacheco torches UB, tows Diliman to PG Flex-UCBL first round sweep

Reigning titlist Diliman College completed a seven-game sweep of the first round elims with 102-77 drubbing of University of Batangas Monday in the PG Flex Linoleum Universities and Colleges Basketball League at the Olivarez College gym in Parañaque City.

Led by wily guard Robbie Darang, the Diliman Blue Dragons used another torrid start to top the first round undefeated and lead Group B in the second phase of the elimination round.

Ismael Pacheco came off the bench to lead six Diliman players in double figures with 19 points on an impressive 8-of-9 shooting from the field while Darang and Jonhnnel Rey Bauzon added 17 and 15 points, respectively.

In the second round Diliman College will be slotted with No. 3 Centro Escolar University (5-2), No. 5 Lyceum-Batangas (3-4) and No. 7 Technological Institute of the Philippines (1-6).

Despite their second straight defeat, the Brahmans wound up second with a 5-2 card and will head Group B along with No. 4 Olivarez College (5-2), No. 6, Philippine Christian University (2-5) and No. 8 National College of Business and Arts (0-8).
