* * *THE correct meaning of the acronym is State Colleges and Universities Athletics Association (SCUAA).* As the name implies, it is open to all government-run learning institutions.

* * *The SCUAA basketball tournament has long been dominated by Polytechnic University of the Philippines-Santa Mesa (PUP).* The University of the Philippines though does not compete in this league.

I believe this is the equivalent to the Private Schools Athletic Association meets where they are provincial, regional, and national tournaments that are held.

SCUAA sweep puts UNP in Champs regional finals

Philippine Daily Inquirer

MANILA, Philippines—University of Northern Philippines crushed Mariano Marcos State University, 86-69, in the finals to cap its five-game sweep of the Schools Colleges Universities Athletic Association (SCUAA) Vigan last Aug. 23.

The Vigan City-based UNP won all its assignments in the five-team preliminary round before repeating over MMSU of Batac, Ilocos Norte in the one-game final to bag the fourth Lauro B. Tacbas Cup.

UNP and MMSU thus qualified for the Region 1 championship of the Smart-Champions League 2008 Philippine Collegiate Championship.

They will mix it up with the top teams from the Baguio-Benguet Educational Athletic League (Beal) for the regional championship.

Pangasinan State University placed third with a 3-2 record. Ilocos Sur Polytechnic State University and Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University wound up with identical 1-3 slates.

The Region 1 champion will move on to the zonal championship where it will be joined by the Region 2 winner, NCAA’s fourth placer, South NCAA’s runner-up and two wildcard entries.

The top two zonal performers will make the FilOil-Flying V “Sweet 16” finals slated in November in Manila.

The nationwide series has drawn 213 collegiate teams, according to Champions League chair Rey Gamboa.

These teams are playing in 27 mother leagues, including major Metro Manila tournaments UAAP, NCAA, NAASCU and CUSA and Cebu City’s Cesafi.

A total prize of P2 million worth of scholarships and other grants await the winners in the regional, zonal and national championships.

The national champion will get P500,000 in grants and will represent the country in the 2009 Universiade Games in Serbia.

The multi-event Games will gather top school teams and athletes worldwide.
