Last February 3, 2007, the 7th STI College Basketball Showdown started at the Rizal Memorial Coliseum.* Air 21 Point Guard Wynne Arboleda and Mail & More Forward Jorel Canizares were there to give support to the STI students who witnessed the event.* Mail & More Head Coach and Air 21 Asst. Coach Allan Gregorio was the Guest of Honor as he gave an inspirational speech to the Twelve STI Colleges who were there for the event.

Ms. Zerah Mayon from STI College Las Piñas was hailed as the best muse of the tournament.* A side event was also introduced which was the Three Ball 3 Pt. Shoot out.* Joel Briones of STI College Makati came out the winner as he tied Jorel Canizares with 9 three pointers.

Champion sports apparel, the official outfitter of the STI College Olympians through their A&P Director Jim Sarmiento was there to sponsor some gift items for the winners.

THe STI Schools participating in this showdown are STI College Balagtas, STI College Cubao, STI College Fairview, STI College Global City, STI COllege Las Piñas, STI College Makati, STI College Ortigas Cainta, STI College Parañaque, STI College Sta. Rosa,* STI College Southwoods, DLS-STI* Quezon Avenue and defending champion DLS-STI E.Rodriguez.

This Tournament produced the first batch of STI College Olympians and is one of the many training grounds for would be Olympians. 2003 MVP Bimbo Legaspi is still with the Olympians and is a vital cog in the rotation of the team. We hope that this year's tourney will produce the next batch of Olympians.
