    Other dominant collegiate teams outside of Metro Manila

    Which collegiate teams outside of Metro Manila can give the UAAP and NCAA schools tough competition?

    The Cebu Schools like West Negros College and University of Visayas have dominated the Visayan Leagues in the past years. How about the schools from Mindanao?

    Let's start loading up this sub-forum with your favorite non-Manila based squads.

    Re: Other dominant collegiate teams outside of Metro Manila

    I don't really know about teams but there have been a lot of players who have been outstanding in smaller leagues and teams outside of Metro Manila.

    Leomer Losentes of St Francis of Assissi (Laguna) comes immediately to mind. In the Nike tournament last summer he was head and shoulders above the rest of his team and playing toe to toe with the UAAP and NCAA guards.

    Jeff Lapitan was another former SFACS Laguna player who is now looking to play for the EAC Generals. Unfortunately the 6-foot-5 center-forward's most memorable moment in the offseason tournaments was his right straight to the back of Martin Quimson's head, which promptly got him tossed from that game.

    san sebastian cavite for some time was much better than their baste counterparts in legarda. i remember a column from beth celis a few years back devoted to this school.

    notable players:

    Axel Doruelo - UP, teletech
    Mark Yee - Cebuana Lhuillier
    Jerome Cenita - still playing this season in NAASCU, but played for DAZZ in the PBL last season and also in Tagaytay Spring in the NBC previously.
    Glen Bolocon - still playing, played for Tagaytay Spring
    Barry Lllagas - UE
    Jose Magdadaro - Teletech
    John Villaver - Pagadian Explorers

    thats 7 players who are not only UAAP / NCAA material but are commercial capable too. thie coach is egay macaraya, former PBA player.

    San Lorenzo (limot ko na kung college o university sila) sa Bataan.

    Dito nanggaling ang mga AMACU Titans na sina CHITO JAIME at ROMMEL GALVEZ.

    University of the Visayas Green Lancers in Cebu, prior to this season had a 64-1 win-loss record losing only to the University of Cebu Webmasters. They are having their worst season so far, losing once to the Jaguars in the elimination, losing again to the Jaguars in the semifinals before finally wrapping up the series with a 1-point win, again losing in the first game of the finals against the University of San Carlos Warriors. they have so far tied the best of five series at 1-1 but faces the possibility of losing the title for the very first time in the 7 year history of the CESAFI
    Cebu will be a stronger power in basketball very soon...

    Don't ever forget the earliest product coming from SSC-Cavite which made the big leap to the NCAA, the MICAA and finally, a long and distinguished career in the PBA (drum roll naman): San Beda's Abe King.

    * * *ACTUALLY, you can say that the Baycats were lucky at that time because the varsity of Salazar Tech in Cebu got disbanded after the school was kicked out of the CeSAFI.* That allowed them to land Jan Villaver and Jose Magdadaro.* They also went on a massive Vis-Min talent search that landed Glen Bolocon from San Jose-Recoletos, Mark Yee from Bacolod and also Jerome Cenita plus several of their role players.* It was a big plus that Coach Egay Macaraya is from Bohol so he was able to convince these players to come over.* Axel Doruelo was the lone Luzon guy of note, being a transferee from PUP-Santa Mesa.* They probably had only two to three guys who were natives of Cavite while majority of the players were of Vis-Min origin.

    * * *These days, the team is mostly composed of Cavitenos but still competitive.
