While the spotlight was on Jiovani Jalalon, Cagayan de Oro City pride is not lost as the newly-crowned NCAA Champion San Beda Red Lions also boast of two cagers from the city with San Beda skipper Roldan Sara and center Antonio Bonsubre, Jr.
Sara finished with seven points, six rebounds, and six assists to help the Red Lions capture their ninth championship in 11 years. He was the stabilizer which kept San Beda’s composure.
Meanwhile, the 6’5 Bonsubre shown below carrying the Championship trophy, was more of a role player with his defense.
… and in today’s guesting at Showtime, the two had their selfies taken.
Jalalon who was part of the NCAA Mythical Five and lost in the race for the MVP award, carried Arellano University to the NCAA Finals against San Beda, losing to the Red Lions via a 2-game sweep.
