Xavier University High School lost to powerhouse La Salle Green Hills, 79-90, in the finals of the Milo BEST SBP-Passerelle National Finals at the Easter College Gym in Baguio City recently. Despite the loss, the feat was the school’s best finish in high school basketball in the country.

Led by Rhys Jefferson Flores (above holding trophy), the CDO-based squad had beaten Sacred Heart School Jesuit-Cebu 102-98 and Saint John Cathedral School of Dagupan, 102-62 before barging into the finals. They also lost to La Salle 79-102 in the preliminaries but the championship game was much closer.
