AMA Computer University completed a sweep of Ateneo de Manila to become champions of the inaugural staging of the Seaoil-NBTC Junior Elite League at the Xavier University gym over the weekend.
AMA whipped Ateneo, 71-48, in Game 2 one day after handing the Blue Eaglets a 73-63 beating in the finals series opener of the tournament organized and supervised by the National Basketball Training Center for grade school players 12-and-under.
Christian Tanedo led the way for AMA Computer University with 24 points while Benjho Maximo contributed 20 markers built around six three-pointers as they clinched the title in the event backed by Seaoil and San Miguel Corporation’s Purefoods Tender Juicy Hotdog, Star Margarine and Magnolia Spinner Ice Cream. Molten is the official ball of the tournament.
Tanedo emerged as the league’s Most Outstanding Player in the Finals and made it all the way to the Mythical first team, joining Richmond Sedric King of Chang Kai Shek, Miguel Alfonso Santos and Ray Rogil Benedict Carlos of La Salle-Greenhills, and Xavier Jorvina of Ateneo.
King was adjudged the Most Outstanding Player of the Season.
