Diliman College held its ground  against UAAP  team Adamson University  for the entire  contest before  losing 61-65  in the final at the San Beda College gym in Manila.

Handled by  coach Rensy Bajar and managed by  former Sen. Nikki Coseteng, the Blue Dragons  settled for runner-up honors.

“It was a good game. The boys played very hard and kept their composure  even against playing the more-experiemced Falcons in the championship match,” said Bajar.

“Overall, I’m satisfied with the performance of our team,” added  Bajar. “I am very  proud of  what the boys have shown. They really gave their hearts out  and made the school proud.”

Added  Bajar:  “It  was a good  experience for us, especially playing against  a strong UAAP team like Adamson. It was also a good experience for me as coach to have a game against multi-titled collegiate coach Franz Pumaren.”

Bajar also  lauded the efforts of  his  young Senegalese import Alex Diakhite and Congolese Youssout  Mbiya.

Bajar said   the Blue  Dragons will  put to good use  “this experience  in  our  future tournaments, like UCBL and NAASCU.”

The  former  PBA star-turned-coach also  revealed plans  of Diliman College  to apply in the  PBA D-League  next year.
