Mammoth center Isaac Go collected 18 points, 15 rebounds and four assists to lead Xavier School to a stunning 84-63 victory over Tiong Lian arch rival Chiang Kai Shek College Wednesday afternoon in the 2nd Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship (PSSBC) held at SGS Gym in Quezon City.

In addition to the 6-7 Go, four other Golden Stallions scored in double figures – Jarrell Lim (16), Tyler Tio (14), Korean Chang Gi Hong (12 and 13 rebounds) and Anton Lapez (10).

Xavier School never trailed during the 40-minute contest, quickly establishing a 10-point lead (12-2) in the early minutes of the first quarter and thereafter enjoying a double-digit advantage the rest of the way, including a high of 25 (80-55) with 2.5 minutes left in the mismatch.

The Golden Stallions picked their second win in four assignments in Group A to clinch a quarterfinal berth as the No. 3 seed from Group A. And following Mapua Tech’s 82-64 defeat of UAAP champion National University later in the night, Chiang Kai Shek College was booted out of the final eight.

Following a tie-breaker among Mapua Tech, NU and Xavier, the Red Robins emerged No. 2 in Group A with the highest quotient system (plus 27), Xavier ranked third (minus 10) and NU (minus 27) slipped to fourth. San Sebastian College-Recoletos topped the group with a 3-1 mark.

In Group B, NCAA titlist remained the only unbeaten team in the tournament after blasting Ateneo de Manila University, 98-52, for a 5-0 record in Group B. Reigning Tiong Lian champion Hope Christian High School placed second at 4-1, the Blue Eaglets ranked third and Jose Rizal University captured the fourth and final quarterfinal berth in the group with a 78-64 victory over De La Salle-Zobel.

In the quarterfinals to be played on Saturday, November 30, at the CKSC Gym, it will be San Sebastian College vs. Jose Rizal University, Mapua Tech vs. Ateneo, Xavier School vs. Hope Christian HS (a rematch of the 2013 Tiong Lian finals) and San Beda College vs. National University (a battle between this year’s NCAA and UAAP champions).
