During the NCAA Season 94 Seniors Basketball Individual Awards Ceremony, the Grand Old League also adjudged the best shots from the photo journalists who have been covering the league in both the print and online realm.

Bagging two places in the contest judged by the NCAA’s Management Committee headed by San Beda’s Mari Lacson are shots from Tiebreaker Times’ chief photographer Joaqui Flores.

Flores’ photo of Prince Eze celebrating his buzzer-beating shot that ended Lyceum’s 30-game elimination round streak last September 21 ranked second.
